  • Grayslake North takes aim against Washington foes Jan 15, 2015 10:47 PM
    Although there’s no scientific data as proof, there does seem to be anecdotal evidence that high school basketball in each area of Illinois is styled a bit differently. Just ask the Grayslake North boys basketball team. The Knights are preparing to return to downstate Washington High School this weekend as part of the annual Martin Luther King tournament there that they participated in last year. They are ready for what they weren’t quite ready for last time. “We couldn’t believe the shooting we saw there,” Grayslake North coach Todd Grunloh said. “It’s not like it is up here. Literally any kid who checks into the game down there can shoot from two to three feet outside the 3-point line and with great form."

  • Fremd’s Invitational quite a showcase for MSL talent Jan 11, 2015 11:04 PM

However, the Vernon Hills faithful most likely forgave senior star shooting guard Robby Nardini, who more than made up for that lone turnover Friday night by pouring in a game-high 26 points to help lead the Cougars to a convincing 66-28 North Suburban Prairie Division victory over visiting Wauconda.

  • Bahlmann connection helps Vernon Hills top Rolling Meadows Dec 26, 2014 11:46 PM
    There were all kinds of girl-friendly goodies to unwrap at the Bahlmann house on Christmas Day. “We got a lot of clothes and jewelry,” middle sister Monica said on behalf of older sister Brie and younger sister Becky. The three Bahlmann sisters themselves have been gifts that keep giving to the Vernon Hills girls basketball team. Brie, now a sophomore in college, helped the Cougars advance downstate in back-to-back seasons, 2011-12 and 2012-13. Monica, now a senior, was a sophomore on the second downstate team. On Friday at the Mundelein holiday tournament, Monica and Becky, a sophomore, helped put a big red bow on a 50-28 victory over a Rolling Meadows team that might be young and rebuilding, but is also still reputable after coming off of back-to-back trips downstate of its own.

  • Vernon Hills nips Cary-Grove Dec 23, 2014 11:27 PM
    So far, the Vernon Hills girls basketball team has lost only a handful of games. But the 11-3 Cougars have seen a common denominator in their losses. They’ve lost leads late. On Tuesday at the Mundelein Mustang Holiday Classic, Vernon Hills avoided that fate. Narrowly. The Cougars were up by as many as 12 points in the fourth quarter against Cary-Grove, only to see that lead shrink and shrink and shrink. But some late free throws by Monica Bahlmann and Haley Lieberman helped Vernon Hills ice a 3-point victory. “Real proud of the kids for hanging in there,” Vernon Hills coach Paul Brettner said. “We’ve been talking about finishing games. We didn’t finish on some of those earlier games that were losses and we didn’t really handle ourselves as well as you’d hope. It’s nice to see us do real well at the end.” The Cougars had a good fourth quarter overall, thanks in large part to Kasey Firnbach, who scored 9 of her 13 points in the fourth quarter. She also pulled down 4 big rebounds in the quarter. Vernon Hills had entered the fourth quarter up only 24-21. “We knew we really needed to step up and score some points in the fourth quarter because it had been a close game early on,” Firnbach said. “Everybody was contributing. We got screens going, we got open, we got a couple of plays going. We executed what we’ve been practicing.” Becky Bahlmann added 8 points for Vernon Hills and Cary-Grove (6-8) got 13 points out of Katie Barker, who is averaging just shy of 20 points a game. The Cougars often face-guarded Barker, one of the better scorers in the area. “I knew they were going to have a plan for (Barker), and I’m fine with that. Because if she gets double-teamed, someone’s going to be wide open,” Cary-Grove coach Rod Saffert said. “The problem for us tonight is that we just didn’t hit our shots. We had them, we didn’t make them, especially in the paint. We missed a lot of shots there. It was a game of missed opportunities for us.”

  • 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.

  • Landmark victory for Nardini, Vernon Hills Dec 19, 2014 11:11 PM

Nardini led a fourth-quarter rally after the Cougars (8-1) let a 12-point third-quarter lead slip away.
