    With the postseason just a few days away, neither the Naperville Central boys volleyball team or Naperville North squad could ask for a better regular-season finale.

  • Waubonsie gets edge for postseason May 22, 2014 10:27 PM

The win in Lisle also avenged a three-game loss suffered earlier this season to the Redwings.

  • Barrington edges Hersey for MSL title May 21, 2014 10:17 PM
    Barrington’s Mike Amato stood calmly at the service line with the Mid-Suburban League boys volleyball championship hanging in the balance. The Broncos, on their home court, led Hersey 27-26 in game three and were trying to hold off a frenzied Huskies rally. And Amato was ready for his big moment. “I just wanted to get the ball in,” said the outside hitter, “try to serve it where Coach R (Rob Ridenour) told me to, then be ready to play free volleyball and not worry about making errors.” And right on cue, Amato’s and his Barrington teammates’ worries were over as soon as the ball flew over the net. The serve got past the Hersey defense for an ace as the West Division champions won the MSL title with an 18-25, 24-15, 28-26 victory over East champion Huskies.

  • Heinz, Vernon Hills a hit against Lake Zurich May 21, 2014 10:00 PM
    On this night, Vernon Hills High School administrators could have invited a few college defensive players to show off their skills.

It was advertised as the two best teams in the conference met with a North Suburban Conference title at state. Visiting Lake Zurich was unbeaten in the conference and the Cougars had just one loss. Lake Zurich battled toe to toe with Vernon Hills in the early going. And then Heinz, setter Ryan Opitz, blockers Lem Turner and Max Spiglanin and rising sophomore Jared Bennett took over the match. Coach Chris Curry’s club won its sixth league title in the past 7 years with an impressive 25-21, 25-12 victory.

  • Loud and clear, Terry’s play lifts Lake Park May 20, 2014 10:51 PM
    About the only thing Lake Park senior Dominick Terry couldn’t do during Tuesday’s boys volleyball match with Glenbard East was speak. “I don’t know what it is. My throat’s just closed. Screaming all match, it’s gone,” Terry said. “There was a point I couldn’t even talk in the game. Before the game I couldn’t breathe. I don’t know if it was the adrenaline or what, but it kicked in. It worked.” As usual, there was plenty for the Lancers and their vociferous fans to scream about. They are one step closer to at least sharing the DuPage Valley Conference title after beating the Rams 25-15, 25-18 in Roselle.

  • No stopping Waubonsie Valley on Senior Night May 20, 2014 12:17 AM
    Waubonsie Valley senior boys volleyball player Connor Douville was in the midst of a serving streak to finish out the second set Monday when Warren called a timeout. “I was just drinking water, and then all of a sudden, there was blood on my hand. I had a random bloody nose,” Douville said. “I’ve never had that happen in a game before.” This, however, was his Senior Night. Nothing was going to stop Douville or the Warriors from rallying for a 19-25, 25-19, 25-19 victory in Aurora.
