  • A regional 4-peat for St. Edward May 16, 2014 9:53 PM
    St. Edward center-mid Corey Lepoudre admitted during Friday’s Class 1A Westminster regional final that the Green Wave girls soccer team had a plan to avoid all the puddles on a soaked Warrior Field. Unfortunately, maybe for dry cleaning purposes only, that game plan went quickly out the window. “I think we started running through the puddles instead,” said Lepoudre, who noted you couldn’t power the ball through as you would on a dry field. “It was ok. We handled it pretty well.” And that St. Edward did. Despite the fact the field mirrored a giant slip-’n-slide and every girl had at least one mud stain on her jersey, it took St. Edward (22-2) 11 missed shots in the first 16 minutes to figure out the muddy surface in a 6-0 win over Westminster for its fourth-straight regional championship.

     
  • Little change to Fox Valley postseason May 16, 2014 9:39 PM
    New location, same teams. The Class 4A baseball sectional held last season at Huntley shifts to McHenry this year, but little else has changed. Three of the four regionals within the sectional complex contain the same five teams and the fourth has only one lineup alteration, according to pairings released this week.

     
  • Controlling out of control games no easy task for any coach May 14, 2014 8:26 PM
    What’s a coach to do? Your team is ahead of the opponent, say, 12-0 after two innings. You know if your team keeps playing it straight at it might be 20-0, or worse, by the time the fifth inning rolls around and the slaughter rule takes effect. So what’s a coach to do? Some will say tough, that’s the way it is, and do nothing except let the game play out. Others will have runners leave early, or bunt back to the pitcher, or have their hitters intentionally swing at bad pitches — anything to get it over quicker and not embarrass the other team.

     
  • Baseball: Fox Valley roundup Wednesday, May 14 May 14, 2014 9:36 PM
    Michigan recruit Ryan Nutof had it going Wednesday afternoon, with his arm and his bat. The South Elgin senior pitched a complete-game 3-hitter with 12 strikeouts and drove in the game’s only run in the top of the eighth inning as the Storm escaped Metea Valley with a 1-0 Upstate Eight Valley win.

     
  • Westminster knocks Harvest out again May 14, 2014 10:16 PM
    In terms of winning, maybe it’s best to say Westminster Christian’s girls soccer team knows to do so in the clutch. Or maybe that’s just how it goes when the Warriors face off against their next door neighbors, rival Harvest Christian, in postseason play as opposed to the regular season. The No. 2 seed Lions may have had Westminster’s number twice in the regular season by a combined score of 5-0, but for the second-straight year that didn’t matter as the No. 3 Warriors denied the Lions another postseason victory when they jumped out to a 3-goal lead en route to a 3-2 Class 1A regional semifinal win Wednesday in Elgin.

  • Meet the 2013-2014 Fox Valley Academic Team May 8, 2014 3:34 PM
    "Throughout my life, I have never been satisfied with simply meeting the minimum requirements," Kevin Wilde of Cary-Grove High School writes in an essay. "While some people may ask, 'What is the least amount of work I need to do to get by?' I ask, 'What could I do to get the most out of this situation?'" Wilde, who was named to the Daily Herald's Fox Valley Academic Team for 2013-14, is not alone in his mindset. The students on the team look for opportunities to not only further their own achievements, but to lead, and to make a difference.
