    The sporting cliché is that West Aurora and Glenbard East were playing for pride on Friday night in the final game of the season, with both football teams already eliminated from the postseason.

    St. Charles North’s Audrey Ernst crossed the finish line at the Upstate Eight Conference cross country meet, then turned to congratulate her competitors running through the chute. There were plenty to congratulate because the slightly built, blonde-haired freshman won the meet on Saturday. Ernst outdueled familiar foe Gabby Juarez of Streamwood by .6 seconds, winning in 17 minutes, 31.1 seconds on the undulating three-mile course at Lords Park in Elgin.

  • West Aurora wins 14th straight over East Aurora Oct 18, 2014 3:09 PM
    DaQuan Cross needed only 15 seconds to begin a historic West Aurora football victory Friday night. West Aurora and archrival East Aurora are Illinois’ prep version of the Rose Bowl—the granddaddy of them all. But in the 121 years the schools have competed, West Aurora never scored as many points as it did at East Aurora. Cross’ 87 yard kickoff return to start the game was only an appetizer as the Blackhawks scored on all five second-half possessions to rout the Tomcats 62-14.

    It’s getting to be the fun time of the cross country season — something the Batavia Bulldogs remember quite well. The Bulldogs certainly had fun late last year, qualifying for state for the first time and giving retiring coach Mike DiDomenico quite a send off.

    Batavia coaches had a plan for Patrick Redmond Saturday at the West Aurora Stampede, but the senior had his own ideas.

  • Neuqua Valley wins shootout at West Aurora Oct 4, 2014 12:11 AM
    West Aurora certainly had the momentum going into halftime after TJ Jackson broke a tackle and entered the end zone with no time remaining in the second quarter. But Neuqua Valley stopped the Blackhawks at critical junctures in the third quarter Friday night in Aurora, and its first two scores of the second half created enough separation for the Wildcats to escape with a 48-35 Upstate Eight Valley victory.

  • Halfway home, breaking down playoff possibilities Sep 30, 2014 9:42 AM
    It seems like I say this every year about this time — and here I go again. I can’t believe how fast time is flying. Last weekend (at halftime to be precise) marked the official halfway point of the high school football regular season.

  • West Aurora wins thriller over Bartlett Sep 27, 2014 12:12 AM
    From the opening kickoff to the final play of the game, the overflow West Aurora homecoming crowd earned its cost of admission Friday night. In the first-ever meeting between the Blackhawks and Bartlett in the Upstate Eight Conference Valley Division, the schools’ slugfest was not decided until three West Aurora secondary members tackled Bartlett wide receiver Brandon Gates as time expired. With their 34-28 victory the Blackhawks ended a 12-game losing streak dating to the second week of last year.
