  • Girls volleyball / Lake County roundup Sep 5, 2014 1:01 AM
    Girls volleyball Carmel d. Lakes: Grace Schofield slammed 8 kills, as the Corsairs won 25-19, 25-21 in nonconference action. Carmel (3-0) also received strong contributions from Grace Butler (6 kills, 11 assists, 7 digs), Cate Halverson (3 kills, 3 blocks), Sierra Kepski (12 digs), Taylor Luhr (4 kills), Morgan Meade (4 kills, 14 assists, 7 digs) and Elizabeth Tworek (3 aces, 5 digs). Carmel opened up a 20-8 lead in the opening set, but Lakes wouldn’t go down without a fight and made it close. The Eagles’ momentum carried over into the second set and, for the first time this season, Carmel found itself trailing an opponent. “Lakes is a solid team and played some good defense and caused us some problems,” Corsairs coach David Pazely said. “The girls kept their heads and battled back to get the win. Our middles played well tonight and contributed effectively to the offense. Our setters found a good balance to our attack and we were able to get everyone involved.” Katie Billetdeaux had 5 kills and 3 blocks for Lakes. McKenna Lahr had 4 kills and 3 blocks, and Megan Behrendt totaled 3 kills, 3 aces and 5 digs. “We enjoyed playing a competitive match and look forward to seeing Carmel in the Grayslake Central Ram Slam tournament over the weekend,” Lakes coach Kate Cheek said. Libertyville d. Evanston: The Wildcats won 25-14, 25-16 to improve to 7-1, as Alex Basler had 8 kills, while Hannah Zerwas added seven. Erin Dunleavy had 5 kills, while Liz Apgar dished out 12 assists. Morgan O’Brien contributed 14 digs and 3 aces. Glenbrook South d. Stevenson: Jori Radtke’s 8 kills weren’t enough for the Patriots, who fell 25-20, 26-28, 25-16. Isabella Milejczyk added 6 kills for Stevenson (4-3).

  • Browne, Buffalo Grove serve up a winner Sep 4, 2014 10:50 PM
    It’s still early in the season but Buffalo Grove senior Monica Browne has already had time to improve in one area. And it really paid off on Thursday night. “At the very start of the season, I was having a tough time keeping my serve consistent,” she said.” And I know missed serves can bring the team down after a big run.” Sure enough, the Bison made a huge run from a 15-6 deficit on Thursday night at Elk Grove and then it was up to Browne to take the service line. With the score tied 20-20, she delivered for the final 5 points to give the Bison a 25-11, 25-20 victory in the Mid-Suburban League East season opener.

  • St. Charles East handles West Chicago Sep 2, 2014 9:58 PM
    Depending on how long St. Charles East lasts in the postseason — judging by the impressive early returns it could be awhile — the Saints should end up playing somewhere around 35 to 40 matches this year. Somehow only five of those will take place on their home court, which is a bit of a shame considering the number of fans the Saints draw and the raucous atmosphere. St. Charles East made the first of those five home games count Tuesday, sweeping West Chicago 25-16, 25-18 in front of a large and loud home crowd.

On Tuesday night, both seniors hit 13 on the nose in their specialties — 13 kills for Schofield and 13 digs for Kepski. It’s early in the volleyball season, but Carmel may have served notice that this Corsairs team is built for the long haul. Carmel blitzed a young Lake Zurich squad 25-14, 25-19 to improve to 2-0.
