  • Bartlett-Streamwood’s Filipek UEC 50, 100 champ Nov 1, 2014 9:48 PM
    The 50-yard freestyle is the most unforgiving race in a swim meet. The race is often broken down as “a start, a flip turn and a finish.” But mess up on any of those three, or during the two lengths of the pool that comprise the race, and someone else wins. Bartlett-Streamwood’s Kayla Filipek was the best in the 50 freestyle at Saturday’s Upstate Eight Conference meet at Waubonsie Valley. The sophomore covered the distance in 24.24, six-tenths faster than second-placed Samantha Sauer from St. Charles North.

  • Guccione, Naperville Central capture DVC championship Nov 1, 2014 8:15 PM
    Caitlin Guccione of Naperville Central knew a lot was riding on her team’s race in the 200 free relay at Saturday’s DuPage Valley Conference girls swimming meet.

  • Girls swimming: Fremd finishes on top Nov 2, 2014 7:45 PM
    Of the eight individual events contested in Saturday’s Mid-Suburban League girls swimming championships at Barrington, only one of them had a winner from Fremd. That was senior Saki Takumiya in the 100-yard butterfly. But this Fremd team is clearly more than the sum of its parts. The Vikings won the medley and 200 free relays, and no Fremd invidual entry finished lower than sixth place. That kind of consistency combined with a touch of misfortune for Barrington helped the Vikings claim the Mid-Suburban League title for a third straight year. Fremd finished with 305 points to Barrington’s 260.

  • Liva leaves MSL meet with a record effort Oct 31, 2014 10:06 PM
    According to both Prospect senior diver Dana Liva and her coach, Antonino Bondi, Liva’s performance in Friday’s Mid-Suburban League championship meet was far from perfect. The judges, at the very least, sure liked it a lot. Liva completed a four-year run of MSL championships with a meet and pool record score of 492.45 at Barrington High School.

  • Girls swimming: Scouting MSL swimming and diving Oct 30, 2014 7:30 PM
    Here's what to expect from the Mid-Suburban League girls swimming and diving meet. The action is at Barrington, starting with diving at 6 p.m. Friday and swimming at 11 a.m. Saturday.

  • Prospect’s Liva smoothly dives toward postseason success Oct 29, 2014 2:35 PM
    There’s a certain smooth symmetry to the high school diving career of Dana Liva. Measured against the state’s best competitors, she’s enjoyed parabolic success in her time competing for Prospect. Her state meet finishes have been 12th as a freshman, sixth as a sophomore and fourth as a junior. Plotted against her Mid-Suburban League competitors, the achievement curve has been predictable in a different way: a perfectly straight line of consecutive first-place finishes. When Liva competes starting at 6 p.m. Friday at Barrington in the MSL meet, she’ll gracefully be pursuing conference diving championship No. 4.

  • ‘EC Swims On’ honors Collins’ aquatic legacy Oct 23, 2014 9:22 PM
    Faced with the task of finding a fitting way to honor Eric Collins, those closest to him dove right in. The result is called EC Swims On, a swimming meet dedicated to his memory and devoted to seeing the sport he loved continue to thrive. The event will be held Sunday at Olympic Pool, a park district facility in Arlington Heights. A lifelong swimmer and recently the coach of the Arlington Wellness Center’s Masters swim team, Collins died suddenly in April after suffering a pulmonary embolism. He was 42.

  • Libertyville’s depth sinks Mundelein Oct 16, 2014 10:05 PM
    Lucy Saucedo raced to a pair of individual wins, and Libertyville’s girls swimming team used its depth to defeat host Mundelein 112-74 in North Suburban Conference action Thursday night. Saucedo won the 200-yard freestyle in 2:03.126, touching out teammate Anne Barnett (2:03.82). Saucedo captured the 500 free in 5:31.25. Mundelein had seven first-place efforts, including a pair each by Erin Falconer and Jenn Kordik. Falconer took the 200 individual medley (2:11.91) and 50 free (25.17), while Kordik was a winner in the 100 free (54.43) and 100 breaststroke (1:07.19), as she edged out Libertyville’s Macey Neubauer (1:07.43) in the latter race.

  • Zahn, Palatine edge out Conant Oct 17, 2014 12:02 AM
    Senior year got here early for Palatine’s Lily Zahn. Though in just her third season as a key member of the Pirates’ girls swimming and diving team, Zahn in is her last year of high school competition. She’ll graduate early in pursuit of greater classroom challenges in advance of a promising collegiate future. “I love having Lily,” said Palatine coach Brittany Berleman, “because she shows that you can do it well, athletically and academically, at the same time.” The athleticism was on display during Palatine’s senior night, as the Pirates wrapped up their Mid-Suburban League duals with a 98-88 victory against visiting Conant.

  • Meadows finishes duals with win over Buffalo Grove Oct 15, 2014 9:49 PM
    Rolling Meadows used a first-and-third finish in the meet’s last event, the 400-yard freestyle relay, to earn a 93-90 finish over Buffalo Grove in girls swimming on Wednesday at the Mustangs’ home pool, at Elk Grove. It wasn’t a perfect night for Meadows, as its top medley relay was disqualified in what would have been a winning effort. But the Mustangs were able to overcome that, plus a 1-2-3 Bison sweep in diving, to finish their Mid-Suburban East duals with a 3-2 record.

  • Girls swimming: Anderson, Zahn set the pace for Palatine Oct 11, 2014 9:32 PM
    Palatine’s top swimmer in Saturday's college events meet at St. Charles East was junior Kristin Anderson, who was second in the 50-yard freestyle and fifth in the 100 freestyle. In college meets, those races take place back-to-back, so Anderson had a very busy 15 minutes in the middle of Saturday’s meet.

  • St. Charles North takes 2nd at own invite Oct 11, 2014 9:12 PM
    For the past two weeks, St. Charles North’s girls swim team has done some serious training without any competitive interruptions. The North Stars went a midseason fortnight without dual meets or invitationals. That training-only period ended Saturday when the North Stars hosted the 15th annual St. Charles North Invitational, and they showed the hard work is paying off with a second-place finish to Neuqua Valley.
