  • Deerfield hangs on against Warren Mar 5, 2015 1:59 PM
    All season long, Warren’s boys basketball team was in games until the end. That was the scenario again Wednesday night, as the Blue Devils tried to rally from a 9-point deficit in the final quarter. But No. 6 Deerfield held on for a 34-30 in the Class 4A Notre Dame regional semifinal in Niles. Deerfield (18-11) will take on No. 4 Notre Dame (25-4) for the regional championship at 7 p.m. Friday. Jake Falish led No. 12 Warren (15-15) with 12 points, dropping in four 3-pointers. Maurice Chambers added 8 points. “I love this team and they competed so hard to win,” Warren coach Ryan Webber said. “We worked our butts off and just fell short.” The Blue Devils trailed 33-24 with 5:40 remaining in the game. Chambers and Falish each hit a 3 to cut the Deerfield lead to 33-30 at the three-minute mark. Warren had an great shot to tie the game with a minute left but saw a three-point attempt go in and out of the basket. “I don’t know how that ball didn’t go in,” Webber said. “It found a way to come out. That’s the way it goes sometimes.” Joey Lane made a free throw with 11 seconds left to seal the game for Deerfield. Nick Zwart led the Warriors with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Vernon Hills 91, CICS/Northtown 30: At Ridgewood, Bo Manso scored 17 points and Lem Turner added a season-high 16, as the top-seeded Cougars cruised in their Class 3A regional opener. Vernon Hills (26-4) also received 13 points from Robby Nardini, 11 from Matt Weaver and 9 from Jacob Helfand. Manso, Nardini and Helfand each sank three 3-pointers. The Cougars will play No. 9 Antioch in Friday’s 7 p.m. regional final. Antioch 60, Ridgewood 55: At Ridgewood, Kyle Gofron scored 12 points, as the ninth-seeded Sequoits ousted the host/No. 8 seed. Antioch received 10 points apiece from Danny Brito and Matt Powers. The Sequoits will play No. 1 Vernon Hills for the regional title at 7 p.m. Friday. Palatine 74, Grayslake Central 60: At Cary-Grove, the 14th-seeded Rams dropped their Class 4A regional semifinal. Grayslake Central finishes its season at 14-14. Hersey 66, Cary-Grove 57: Hersey sophomore guard Joe Coffaro looks like an eighth grader toiling in a grammar school tournament. Coffaro doesn’t play like a grade-schooler. Connecting on six 3-pointers, the sophomore scored a game-high 26 points to propel the sixth-seeded Huskies to a 66-57 win over 11th-seeded Cary-Grove in semifinal action of the Class 4A Cary-Grove regional Wednesday night. Hersey will play Palatine for the regional title Friday at 7 p.m. The Pirates advanced with a 74-60 win over Grayslake Central. “He (Coffaro) was certainly the difference in the game,” said Cary-Grove coach Ralph Schuetzle. “We have seen him seven or eight times this season, and he probably averaged one or two 3s in those games.” Coffaro, who was 6 of 9 from beyond the arc, also made 6 of 8 from the free throw line. “Joe has been a consistent player for us all season,” said Hersey coach Steve Messer. “They were clogging up the lane so we did a good job inside-out, and our shooters had open looks. Joe was outstanding.” Coffaro gave his teammates credit. “They got me the ball in good position to shoot,” said Coffaro. “I shot with a lot of confidence tonight.” The Huskies (18-9) were able to finally get some breathing space from the pesky Trojans (16-12) in the fourth quarter. Holding a slim 43-41 lead after 3 quarters, Hersey started the fourth quarter on a 6-0 run. Zak Cooper, Max Heeren and Josh Mailloux each had baskets as Hersey led 49-41 with 6:18 left. The Trojans refused to quit and got to within 54-51 on a 15-footer by Jason Gregoire with 3:09 remaining. The Trojans couldn’t get any closer. The Huskies made 9 of 12 from the free throw line in the last 1:45 to seal the win. Coffaro was 4-for-6 from the foul line while Cooper was 3 of 4 and Payton Haas made both his shots from the line for Hersey, which made 11 of 20 from 3-point range. Haas backed Coffaro with 18 points, including 3 treys, and Cooper scored 13. Gregoire, who didn’t play because of an ankle injury in Monday’s win against Round Lake, ended an illustrious career with 20 points.— Dave Hess

  • Deerfield holds off Warren Mar 4, 2015 10:19 PM
    All season long, Warren’s boys basketball team has been able to stay in games until the very end. And that was the scenario again on Wednesday night as the Blue Devils tried to rally back from a 9-point deficit in the final quarter.

  • Defense gets Warren going against Maine West Mar 2, 2015 11:07 PM
    The central focus all season for Warren’s boys basketball team has been defense.

  • Big breakthrough for Vernon Hills Feb 21, 2015 10:19 PM
    From hugs to heartbreak, the gamut of emotions were on their usual display Saturday afternoon in the Vernon Hills boys swimming sectional meet. As far as the hugs, there were plenty to go around, especially after Vernon Hills’ junior Brian Rabinowitz had just finished second in the 100-yard backstroke and qualified for next weekend’s state meet at New Trier. “I just missed in the previous three events today, but this definitely makes up for it,” said Rabinowitz, who swam a 53.50. “It feels great to finally end the drought. I was a little worried coming in, but I just trusted my training. I’d love to get a 53 or lower (at state).” The drought Rabinowitz mentioned refers to a four-year absence since Vernon Hills has had a state qualifier in boys swimming.

  • Gutsy state finish for Warren’s Basara Feb 21, 2015 10:38 PM
    In addition to the medal she won, they probably should create another one for Warren’s Emily Basara —for sheer courage. Battling through painfully swollen ankles while competing in the finals of the girls gymnastics state meet at Palatine High School on Saturday night, Basara medaled on vault. McKenzie Kehr of Mundelein and Sam Lococo of Carmel Catholic joined Basara in finding a way to the podium to earn state medals, and Mundelein coach Nancy Toland was named the coach of the year by her peers.

  • Vernon Hills runs the NSC Prairie table Feb 20, 2015 11:45 PM

  • Libertyville’s Gunther guns it, reaches state final Feb 20, 2015 11:03 PM
    Joey Gunther was a smashing success Friday. The Libertyville senior advanced to the 160-pound state wrestling final after outlasting Trace Carello of Marmion Academy in a marathon semifinal in Champaign. The top-seeded Gunther won 3-2 when he was awarded the 1-point winner as Carello (20-4) was unable to break away from an unyielding hold. “It’s wasn’t at all pretty, but as I said after my quarterfinal this morning, it’s not about style points down here,” said Gunther (36-1). Assured of a state medal, Gunther next tried to become the fourth state champ in Libertyville history. He’ll meet Matthew Rundell (32-3) of Oak Park-River Forest in the title bout on Day 3 of the state tournament.

  • Mundelein finding ways to enjoy the struggle Feb 19, 2015 9:55 PM
    Staying upbeat during a 2-25 season isn’t easy. So Mundelein coach Corey Knigge has gone out of his way to make sure his players are having some fun off the court. “We’ve had two rough seasons in a row,” said Knigge, referring to last year’s 2-28 campaign and the 0-11 mark in North Suburban Conference play this is part of this year’s two-win season. “We want the kids, especially our seniors, to have some good memories of this season.” On Wednesday, Knigge took his team down to Loyola University to a men’s game against Northern Iowa, which features former Mundelein standout Robert Knar. Last week, the Mustangs made their first trip to Loyola, to watch another former Mundelein star, Sean O’Brien, a sophomore at Southern Illinois.

  • Cashaw, Stevenson take command at Warren Feb 17, 2015 10:47 PM

  • Kuzmanic, Wheeling stop Warren Feb 17, 2015 11:11 PM
    As Warren coach John Stanczykiewicz stood in Grayslake Central’s near-empty gym, he heard laughter from his girls basketball players coming from the hallway as they exited the building. Never mind that Wheeling’s experienced squad had just beaten Warren’s young Blue Devils 53-39 in a Class 4A regional semifinal. “Listen to them,” said Stanczykiewicz, grinning. “That’s the beauty of this team. They’re just so much fun and they’re together.” Something else Stanczykiewicz appreciated Tuesday night? The final game of Deanna Kuzmanic’s career, at least against his team. “You know what the great thing about Deanna Kuzmanic is?” Stanczykiewicz said after the senior guard rang up a game-high 20 points, 6 assists and 4 steals. “There’s no drama there. There’s no attitude. There’s no ‘Hey, look at me.’ There’s no grandstanding. She takes her knocks — she takes her physical play. You don’t see her crying. “To me,” Stanczykiewicz added, “that’s the beauty of Deanna Kuzmanic. I hope that’s what kids watch, too. It’s not just the skill set. It’s the attitude. If you’re going to lose, you don’t mind losing to people like that.”

  • Koto, Stevenson take winning position in NSC Feb 14, 2015 9:17 PM
    He was understandably a little tired after having just competed in the 200-yard freestyle, and then the 500 freestyle a few events later. Upon reflection, though, it’s definitely a position Stevenson senior boys swimming team co-captain Nick Koto has no issues with. “Yeah, a bit tired but I swam good swims,” said Koto, who posted season-best times in finishing second in both the 200 free (1:43.88) and 500 free (4:45.65). Koto also had a season-best split time of 22.26 when he anchored the 200 free relay, which also finished second. There, he joined forces with Alex Kapecki, Viktor Makarskyy and Dimitriy Pelutis. Koto’s performance was one of many good ones by the Patriots, who edged out Lake Forest for a sixth NSC title in seven years. The Pats collected 337 points, while the runner-up Scouts tallied 317.

  • Sectional triumphs for Libertyville’s Gunther, Grant’s Kantzler Feb 14, 2015 9:32 PM
    If anyone wondered about Joey Gunther’s state championship credentials, surely there can be little doubt now. The Libertyville senior is on his way to a second consecutive trip to Champaign next weekend, where the Cats’ top wrestler will be one of the favorites to win a title at 160 pounds on the floor of Assembly Hall. Joining him downstate will be Grant's Christian Kantzler, a sectional champ at 126 pounds.

  • Grayslake North pins down state berth Feb 14, 2015 11:03 PM
    Four pins. That’s what denied Grayslake North’s girls bowling team a trip to state last year. It weighed heavily on the minds of the Knights, who got their shot at redemption Saturday. And this time they didn’t let opportunity slip away. The Knights secured a spot at Cherry Bowl in Rockford next weekend by finishing third in the Rolling Meadows sectional at Brunswick Zone Mt. Prospect. Grayslake North totaled 5,731 pins, while Schaumburg was the sectional champion with a 5,841 total. Runner-up Hersey (5,758) and Hoffman Estates (5,710) also qualified for state.

  • Falish, Chambers team up for Warren Feb 13, 2015 10:28 PM
    The backcourt combination of Jake Falish and Maurice Chambers is quickly becoming a tandem worth watching for the Warren Blue Devils. Falish has filled it up from behind the arc this season, and he did so again Friday night in a road contest for the Devils at Libertyville. But the emergence of Chambers has been a big reason why the Devils are playing some of their best boys basketball of the season to this point. Falish hit seven 3s on his way to a game-best 25 points, and Chambers rattled home a pair of long ones and finished with 19 to lift Warren to its fourth straight win and second of the season over Libertyville 57-49.
