  • Repeat Leyden title for Rolling Meadows Dec 20, 2014 9:04 PM
    Rolling Meadows repeated as champion of the boys swimming invitational at Leyden, topping West Chicago and the host Eagles for the title on Saturday. Jake Barson won the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:01.21, Filip Pancerz won the 100 back in 59.49, Kuba Debkowski won the 50 free in 23.22 and Josh Dellorto won twice, taking both the 200 free (1:48.68) and 500 free (4:59.87). The 500 effort from Dellorto lowered his own team record. With victories in all three relays, the Mustangs finished with 311 points, while West Chicago finished at 260 and Leyden at 206.

  • Libertyville’s Harrington takes the long view at Lake County meet Dec 20, 2014 9:25 PM
    Libertyville standout swimmer Matt Harrington summed it up best. “The Lake County Invite is always a great training meet and it’s still early in the season so it also serves as kind of an experiment to see where you stand,” the Princeton-bound senior said after winning the 500 freestyle, finishing second in the 200 freestyle and taking legs on the second-place 200 and 400 freestyle relay teams. “I’m really working on getting mentally stronger. I do well and get off to good starts but then I tend to fall off at the end. Today I swam almost 900 yards. That’s great for getting more familiar with the pain that goes along with getting stronger. Plus, by swimming the longer events it helps me finish stronger in the shorter events.” Incidentally, Harrington’s times in the 200 (1:41.85) and 500 freestyle (4:43.89) were both school records, which made first-year coach Mike Cunningham even more ecstatic.

  • The hits keeps coming for Rolling Meadows Dec 19, 2014 11:30 PM
    At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the records keep breaking for Rolling Meadows. Freshman Josh Dellorto updated a mark from 2002 with his victory in the 200-yard freestyle on Friday as the host Mustangs topped Wheeling 112-74. Dellorto finished the 200 in 1:48.54 and also won the 500 free (5:03.73), along with having legs on the winning 200 medley and 200 free relays.

  • Energy, outcome favors Fremd against Barrington Dec 19, 2014 10:31 PM
    It was easy to spot Fremd boys swimming coach Kristen Newby on Friday night. She was the high-energy one with the big grin on the deck of her school’s pool, as she seemingly pep-talked every member of her team as its Mid-Suburban League West showdown with visiting Barrington unfolded. She had every right to be enthusiastic. As the meet wore on, she knew the score, literally and figuratively — her squad had a good chance to defeat the Broncos and in the process win the biggest dual of the young Mid-Suburban West season. Newby was still all smiles when it was over, as the Vikings swam away with a 104-82 victory, to head into the holiday break with perhaps an unexpected gift.

  • Hall of Famer now, Schalz still focused on helping kids Dec 18, 2014 5:54 PM
    It says a lot about a person when you call him up and though he doesn’t know you from Adam leaves you laughing after an hourlong conversation. Above all the technique and drive he injects into the Rosary and Marmion swimming programs, that easy, agreeable nature must be what makes Bill Schalz one of the state’s most successful high school coaches, any sport.

  • Williams, Petro spar in elite butterfly matchup Dec 18, 2014 10:58 PM
    In Round 1 of the Colin Williams-Michael Petro 100-yard butterfly showdown, give seniority the edge. Williams, an Elk Grove senior, won what is likely the first of three head-to-head matchups between two of the Mid-Suburban League’s top competitors — and perhaps the state’s — in the event on Thursday in a dual hosted by Hersey at Olympic Pool in Arlington Heights. The two were about even at the halfway point, with Williams touching in 24.65 and Petro in 24.71. But Williams had the stronger second half, finishing in 52.27 to Petro’s 53.26.

  • Young, tough lineups as Barrington faces Fremd Dec 18, 2014 8:26 PM
    Friday marks the first big dual meet test of the season in Mid-Suburban West boys swimming and diving as two-time defending overall league champ Barrington pays a visit to Fremd. The Vikings placed third in last year’s conference meet — but it would be a mistake to put much emphasis on last year when looking at either of the teams this season. Both programs are trotting out lineups very different from last winter, with one thing in common: youth.

  • Langanis, Cary-Grove outpace Hoffman Estates Dec 16, 2014 8:58 PM
    In the long run, swimming year-round has certainly helped Cary-Grove junior Cooper Langanis. Already a standout distance swimmer as a sophomore, a summer commitment to the sport is yielding impressive early winter results for him. They were on display Tuesday at Hoffman Estates, where the Langanis won the 200-meter freestyle (2:02.88) and 400 free (4:23.00) in times that are already on par with his best efforts of last winter’s high school season. Those performances helped the Trojans produce a 96-86 victory in a nice nonconference matchup of teams featuring several impressive developing swimmers.

    Neuqua Valley’s strategy going into Saturday’s West Chicago Wildcat Relays Invitational was clear, and it worked out fine.

  • Fab four smashes relay record in Meadows’ victory Dec 13, 2014 8:36 PM
    The record-board rearranging continued for Rolling Meadows’ boys swimming team on Saturday. Probably the most important change didn’t have anything to do with time, but rather final placement. Never before in coach Monika Chiappetta’s 17 years had the Mustangs taken top team honors in the Wild Stallion Jamboree. But there was Rolling Meadows, 3 points ahead of defending Mid-Suburban East champ Prospect on Saturday, and well ahead of strong teams from Hersey, Cary-Grove and Lane Tech.

  • Williams, Dellorto break 500 records in Meadows’ victory Dec 13, 2014 12:08 AM
    Rolling Meadows earned its first dual victory of the boys swimming season, topping Elk Grove 136-44 on Friday in the facility both teams share at Elk Grove High School in a Mid-Suburban East dual. Both teams got to celebrate program records in the 500-yard freestyle. Elk Grove senior Colin Williams won the event in 4:53.61, erasing the mark that had existed since 1977. It’s already Williams’ second team record of the season, as he established a new benchmark the previous week in the 200 IM. The second-place finisher in the 500 free was Rolling Meadows freshman Josh Dellorto. He touched in a personal-best 5:01.14 and also broke the Mustangs’ program record.
