  • Nifty finish lifts Grayslake North to regional win Feb 8, 2014 12:00 AM
    Grayslake North’s girls bowling team had been in pursuit of a nice, round number all season long — reaching 1,000 in a game as a team. The Knights picked a nice time to attain that goal, bettering the mark by 29 pins in posting 1,029 in their final game on Saturday. It was more than enough for Grayslake North to take home the Round Lake regional championship with a 6-game total of 5,620 at Lakes Bowl in Round Lake. Warren earned the runner-up spot (5,556) as Antioch (5,338) and Zion-Benton (5,008) and Grayslake North all advanced to the Zion-Benton sectional, to be held next Saturday at Sunset Bowl in Waukegan. Sarah Littleton of Grayslake North finished as the top Individual with a 1,266.

    Commitment time: Antioch’s Lazarz motors toward Moorhead Feb 6, 2014 12:00 AM
    The almost 10-hour car ride to far northwest Minnesota didn’t scare off Tyler Lazarz. “I’m used to driving long distances to go up north,” Lazarz said. “We go to a cabin up in Wisconsin a lot and it’s about five hours away, so I’m fine with the driving.” Even though Lazarz won’t be vacationing at the end of his long drives to Minnesota, he’s in for just as much fun. The Antioch senior will be playing football next fall at Division II Minnesota State Moorhead, and officially announced his plans on Wednesday as part of national signing day for high school football.

    Tough win for Grayslake N. Feb 5, 2014 12:00 AM
    If she’s brave enough to throw her body in front of hard-struck soccer balls, it’s no wonder Grayslake Central junior Rachel Effa would stand in front of a charging Brittney Thibeaux. Thibeaux stands 6 feet. And is athletic. Effa is listed at 5-7. And has a bad knee. And yet late in Wednesday night’s Fox Valley Conference Fox Division showdown against visiting Grayslake North, Effa stepped in front Thibeaux. Effa, who had drawn a charge earlier in the game, was a tad late. Thibeaux scored, drew the foul, and when a frustrated Effa softly tossed the ball from a sitting position, the referee called a technical foul. Kendall Detweiler hit both free throws to complete a 5-point sequence with 40.5 seconds left, and Grayslake North escaped with a 34-31 win.
