  • Sparkling effort from NSC champ Lake Zurich May 22, 2014 10:41 PM
    The eye black, applied heavily and artfully smeared on the faces of Lake Zurich’s softball players, featured a glittery blend of black, blue and white. “We take great pride in our eye black,” senior third baseman Maria Schroeder said with a laugh. “It takes the whole bus ride to do.” It took the Bears much less time to set the tone in Thursday’s North Suburban Conference championship game at Wauconda. Schroeder scored all the way from first base on a two-out single to center field by Mallory Parsons, and Lake Zurich had the lead for good en route to a 3-1 win. Lake Zurich (23-4) last won the NSC title in 2011, when Schroeder was a freshman starter on varsity.

  • Smoothly, Slota slings Lakes past Wauconda May 14, 2014 10:10 PM
    Chase Slota’s razor-sharp effort included working the edges meticulously and artfully. When you’re on display, you got to be at your best. So, Slota wasn’t about to get wild. “I’m working on it,” the Lakes junior baseball player said with a smile of his thin, blond beard. “I had to trim it up for prom (last weekend). I’m going to grow it out again.” At 6 feet 6 and 220 pounds, and with a fastball that he says hit 91 mph last week, Slota boasts more than facial hair that has potential. The right-hander dominated host Wauconda on Wednesday, throwing a complete-game 2-hitter, as Lakes won 6-0 to remain tied for first place in the North Suburban Prairie Division.

  • Softball / Lake County roundup May 12, 2014 11:05 PM
    Wauconda softball coach Tim Rennels put his head down and took a step toward his team’s dugout after Alyssa Wagner flailed at a strike-two pitch for seemingly the last out of the game at Grant. But while Grant began to celebrate, first-base coach Dave Mills told Wagner to run to first base, which she did, because Caitlyn Moran’s pitch bounced in. After the umpires talked about it, they ruled that Wagner was never tagged on the dropped-third strike and that she was safe at first base. Kayla Wedl then hit an inside-the-park home run, and Taylor McCarthy followed with a solo blast over the fence. When Wedl retired Grant in order in the bottom of the seventh, Wauconda had a shocking, 3-1 win Monday to remain undefeated in the North Suburban Prairie Division. Wauconda improved to 20-7 and 9-0 in the NSC Prairie.

  • Greatness for Grant in NSC meet May 21, 2014 10:25 AM
    On a night Lakes' Brittani Griesbaum nearly beat the great Brittny Ellis of Warren, when Griesbaum's teammate Kortney Schardt and fellow 1,600-meters competitor Lisa Bennatan of Lake Forest engaged in a photo finish of their own, Grant made sure there would be no doubt which track team would emerge as the North Suburban Conference champion. By the time anchor-leg Delaney Basala grabbed the baton, Grant's speedy sophomore had a large lead. She cruised to the finish, as the Bulldogs (4:08.18) won by nearly three seconds. Before the 1,600 relay even began, the Bulldogs had all but officially secured their first NSC title since 2007. Grant totaled 111 points at Vernon Hills on Friday, while Lakes (103.75) was second. Griesbaum's stellar night also included breaking the meet record in the long jump, as her mark of 18-5.5 bettered the 18-1.75 set by North Chicago's Aisha Morton in 2000.
