  • Stevenson edges Grant for first NSC title Jan 31, 2015 8:45 PM
    A new rivalry was born Saturday in the 60th annual North Suburban Conference wrestling meet. Upstart Stevenson and perennial power Grant went toe to toe the entire weekend at Warren, before the Patriots ultimately won their first NSC championship by the slimmest of margins, 225.5 to 225.0, over the Bulldogs. “I don’t think there has ever been a tournament that defines team effort more than this tournament did for us,” Stevenson coach Shane Cook said. “It took all 14 guys working together. We knew how strong Grant’s guys were at certain weights, and we knew every match mattered.”

    A couple of seasons ago, Lake Zurich’s girls bowling won a sectional for the first time. The history-minded Bears followed that theme on Friday in claiming the program’s first-ever North Suburban Conference title at Sunset Lanes in Waukegan.

Warren was the runner-up at 5,498 and Stevenson took third at 5,431 in the 12-team field.

     
  • Lakes taking visual approach to game-readiness Jan 29, 2015 11:12 PM
    Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Videos work nicely, too. Instead of just telling all his seniors to play like they’re savoring every last moment of this dwindling basketball season, Lakes coach Chris Snyder decided to show them how others have done so. “We’ve been watching some inspirational movies, like ‘Hoop Dreams,’” Snyder said. “I liked it when we got to the part about William Gates’ last game. I wanted to give our seniors a sense of the season being over and what that feels like and just how you have to play like you’re cherishing every moment, because it will be over soon.”

  • Stevenson gets a humbling national-level reminder Jan 22, 2015 9:47 PM
    Top-ranked Stevenson is still unbeaten. In Illinois, that is. The only two losses for the state’s best team have come at the hands of top-notch, out-of-state competition, teams that are ranked nationally. Just like the Patriots (16-2). Stevenson’s most-recent loss, and its most lopsided loss of the Jalen Brunson era, was last weekend in the Spalding Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass. The Patriots lost to Findlay College Prep out of Nevada, 84-58. Findlay College Prep is the No. 1-ranked team in the USA Today Top 25 national high school poll.

  • Libertyville’s Steinhaus sparks big comeback Jan 20, 2015 10:36 PM
    In a sense, it’s good that no Green Bay Packers football players saw this boys basketball game on Tuesday night in Wauconda. They would have to relive the nightmare of that loss to the Seattle Seahawks again. Playing the role of the underdog Packers were the home-standing Wauconda Bulldogs. After one quarter, Wauconda (9-9) led NSC Lake contender Libertyville 13-4. That advantage held firm in the third quarter. On a 3-point play from senior Matthew Bulgarelli, the Bulldogs looked like a victor in the making, up 34-20. Enter the equivalent of Seattle QB Russell Wilson in this plot, which would be Cats junior Paul Steinhaus. His second 3 of the game pulled Libertyville within 3 points early in the fourth quarter. Steinhaus had 12 of his game-high 24 points in the final quarter as Libertyville led only in the final two minutes of this 54-51 thriller.

  • Wauconda salutes Weber with a ‘W’ Jan 17, 2015 11:31 PM
    What promised to be an emotional night at Wauconda got ratcheted up even more during pregame warm-ups. Executing the perfect kind of teamwork that would make Tom Weber flash his infectious smile, Wauconda’s girls basketball players stood at center court and took off their warm-up tops, unveiling special T-shirts they had made up for their North Suburban Prairie Division game against Round Lake. The front of the shirts featured a picture of Weber holding his little pride and joy, granddaughter Shelby, who’s 2. Shelby’s mom is Wauconda head coach Jaime Dennis. “We wanted to surprise her,” Bulldogs senior forward Jessie Wood said of her coach. “She started crying.” Jaime Dennis is the daughter of Tom, who passed away suddenly last spring. Tom Weber was one of Wauconda’s finest citizens, highly involved in District 118 and more highly involved in his family. He was a regular at Wauconda games, especially when his daughter’s team was playing.
