  • George takes the lead, and Carmel tops Vernon HillsMar 7, 2014 12:00 AM
    As a senior on the Carmel boys basketball team, Jack George is tasked with leading the team both on and off the court. That can often include light-hearted moments to break up the stress of a long basketball season. “I try to keep it light sometimes,” the 6-foot-10 George said, “but I wasn’t happy with the way we played (Tuesday night) and as a team I felt like we could have done a lot better.” So the normally chatty and affable George took time Friday night before the third-seeded Corsairs’ Class 3A regional title game at Ridgewood against No. 6 seed Vernon Hills to collect his thoughts and focus on the task at hand. The approach worked for George, and the Corsairs benefitted. George scored 13 of his game-high 20 points in the fourth quarter to lift Carmel to a 49-43 win over the Cougars, netting a second consecutive regional crown for the Corsairs.

    Lach's key as Carmel ousts Vernon HillsFeb 27, 2014 12:00 AM
    Carmel Catholic senior Leah Lach explained how her team does so well at the free throw line, especially in the fourth quarter. “We shoot 100 free throws in practice,'' Lach said. “We are trying to make 100 percent. And if we don't hit at least 80 percent, we are running.” Lach had no points heading to the fourth quarter of Thursday's sectional final game at Ridgewood High School. And then she drilled 6 straight free throws. Her effort helped Carmel stay firmly on the playoff track, as the Corsairs earned their first sectional championship appearance in the program's history. Carmel led from start to finish and beat top seed Vernon Hills 47-33, ending the storied high school careers of standout Sydney Smith and Lauren Webb.

  • Weaver’s must-see performance powers Vernon HillsFeb 25, 2014 12:00 AM
    Of all the games Matt Weaver’s mother, Susan, to miss — wouldn’t you know it? — this had to be the one. Where’s the justice? “My mom’s at work,” Weaver said. “It’s all right. I’ll show her the film.” She might want to kick back with some popcorn and enjoy. Her son enjoyed the best game of his varsity basketball career Tuesday night, scoring 28 points on a remarkable 10-of-11 shooting, as Vernon Hills held off visiting Warren 71-68 in a North Suburban Conference crossover, which was also the regular-season finale for both squads.

    This one adds up to a regulation win for Vernon HillsFeb 24, 2014 12:00 AM
    Always the math teacher, coach Paul Brettner figured since his Vernon Hills girls basketball team and North Chicago averaged two overtime periods in two regular-season games, a third contest would yield a similar result. “I figured that’s where we were headed,” Brettner said. Considering how clutch Sydney Smith and Lauren Webb have been in their four-year varsity careers, it figures that Vernon Hills is headed to another Class 3A sectional final. Behind Smith’s game-high 29 points, 8 rebounds and 4 steals, 3 blocks and 3 assists and Webb’s 23 points and 5 boards, top-seeded Vernon Hills outlasted No. 4 North Chicago 66-56 at Ridgewood in another tightly contested battle between the two North Suburban Conference Prairie Division squads. Vernon Hills (25-5) will seek its third sectional championship in a row Thursday at 7 p.m. when it faces No. 3 Carmel (23-8) at Ridgewood.
