Straight As, a love of knowledge and learning, and a curiosity about the world. That's what the 10 members of the 2012-2013 Lake County Academic Team have in common. They also have big dreams. "I believe that my personal purpose is to ... change someone’s world, and that in doing so, I can start a chain reaction that will resolve injustices across the entire world," writes Kaitlyn Norum of Grayslake North.

Fond farewell for Vernon Hills High orchestra director Jun 1, 2013 12:00 AM
The last few days have been an emotional affair for Frank Lestina, Vernon Hills High School’s longtime fine arts supervisor and orchestra director. “I had to stay off Facebook for one-and-a-half days because I just couldn’t cry all that much,” Lestina told an audience of about 350 parents, staff, students and former students who gathered Saturday afternoon at the high school to honor him before his retirement later this month.
One super Saturday for sectional champ Wauconda Jun 1, 2013 12:00 AM
Wauconda senior Alex Kinnamon winced and shook her right hand after fouling a pitch off it. “(The ball) kind of hit right off my knuckles,” Kinnamon said. Kayla Wedl’s left hand shook throughout Saturday’s Class 3A sectional final at Grayslake Central, mainly between innings, the righty said. Her hand wasn’t hurting, however. “It was stressful,” said Wedl, Wauconda’s 5-foot-6 freshman pitcher and maybe the biggest reason for the Bulldogs’ turnaround this season. “I kept shaking. My hand kept shaking — my left one, not (the right) one.” Whew, for Wauconda. Wedl’s right hand was its steady self, as it has been all season, and when fellow freshman Brooke Sefcik squeezed the final out at third base, Wauconda’s girls shook with excitement. Wedl’s 2-hit shutout lifted the Bulldogs to a 2-0 win over North Suburban Conference Prairie Division rival Vernon Hills for their first sectional championship.
It’s no picnic for Vernon Hills as Deerfield advances May 28, 2013 12:00 AM
Practicing at the beach this week is probably out of the question. But Deerfield outside hitter John Harlan might try to convince his coach of the merits anyway. He and fellow outside hitter Zach Hara jump out of the gym when they throw down kills, which they did over and over again Tuesday in leading Deerfield to a 25-22, 25-19 sweep over Vernon Hills in the championship game of the Antioch sectional.
Claussen, Vernon Hills cruise into sectional final May 28, 2013 12:00 AM

Vernon Hills advances to the sectional championship game at 11 a.m. Saturday against the winner of Wednesday’s scheduled Antioch-Wauconda game.

Wauconda turns back Vernon Hills’ late rally May 25, 2013 12:00 AM
There wasn’t much drama in the Wauconda-Vernon Hills Class 3A Fenton regional championship baseball game Saturday morning in Bensenville — until the final inning. The No. 1-seeded Bulldogs led No. 2 Vernon Hills 7-0 going into the top of the seventh before the Cougars put together a big 4-run rally at Redmond Park. But that was the end of the road for Vernon Hills (16-17) as Wauconda (19-7) ultimately sealed a 7-4 victory to capture its first regional crown since the late 1990’s.
Turner times it right as VH tops BG May 24, 2013 12:00 AM
Vernon Hills had to scratch and claw before coming away with a dramatic 32-30 win over Buffalo Grove in the decisive game three on boys volleyball sectional semifinal Friday at Antioch. It was the second win in a row for the comeback Cougars, who lost the first game, 21-25 but then won the second game 25-21. Vernon Hills, seeded fourth in the sectional and now 32-6, will return to Antioch to face No. 2 Deerfield at 7 p.m. on Tuesday for the sectional championship.
Harvey/Komarov save the day for Stevenson May 24, 2013 12:00 AM
Third-set heroics from Colin Harvey and Andrew Komarov not only saved the day for themselves, but likely also a chance at a team trophy as Stevenson's top doubles team came all the way back to win a marathon three-setter and advance into Saturday's semifinals of the boys tennis state tournament. Harvey/Komarov (20-2) roared back from a 7-6 (4) first-set loss to Lake Forest's John Zordani/Scott Christian (27-2) to win the next two sets, the last in dramatic fashion on Friday. That helped ease the sting of a disappointing day of tennis for the Patriots, while at the same time pushing coach Tom Stanhope's team just ahead of Lake Forest (31-30) in the race for second place.
Full-throated Fobbe puts it all together for Stevenson May 24, 2013 12:00 AM
Stevenson senior Jordan Fobbe has added a lot to his shot put style over the last few weeks, and with everything he has added, the shot just keeps going farther. So in time for his first throw in the Class 3A shot put event in boys track and field state preliminaries at O'Brien Field on the campus of Eastern Illinois University, Fobbe added a loud grunt that has become ever-so-popular among shot put throwers. Whether it actually adds distance to the outcome remains up for debate, this much isn't: it worked on Friday for Fobbe. His first throw in the prelims was the best he has ever thrown the shot. The loud grunt was accompanied by an equally loud thud as the shot landed 56 feet, 7 inches from the ring. Another personal best throw marked an improvement of 10 feet over the last two weeks and a spot in the finals with the second-best toss from prelims.
Carmel collects win at Judson May 23, 2013 12:00 AM
Wet grounds at Carmel Catholic forced the baseball team to travel to Elgin to play a “home” game in the state tournament. The Corsairs apparently didn’t mind. Tyler Murphy belted a 2-run homer, and Dalton Wright scattered 5 hits over 6 innings, as No. 3 Carmel blanked No. 19 Wheeling 6-0 at Judson University on Thursday night.
