    Hays, Versluys reach milestones in Westminster win Feb 4, 2014 12:00 AM
    It was a night of milestones and records Tuesday for the Westminster Christian girls basketball team. And, the Warriors notched an impressive come-from-behind win to boot. Senior McKaila Hays became just the third Westminster girl in program history to reach 1,000 career points, sophomore Maddie Verluys scored a school-record 32 points and Westminster registered its 20th win of the season in defeating St. Francis 68-60 in a nonconference game in Elgin. Trailing 33-24 at halftime and then 43-24 after St. Francis senior Caroline Pins hit a 3-pointer with 6:10 left in the third quarter, Westminster (20-3) looked to be on the verge of its second straight loss.

  • Reinhart, Schaumburg edge Westminster Christian Feb 1, 2014 12:00 AM
    Trailing by as many 9 points in the first half, Schaumburg’s girls basketball team had an uphill battle against a team that was all about winning. Visiting Westminster Christian came into Saturday’s nonconference matinee with a sparkling 19-2 record. “It was nerve-wracking,” said Schaumburg guard Brittany Reinhart. “I’m still shaking.” But the 5-foot-7 junior looked calm as could be when she stood at the free throw line with her team leading by 1 point and 29.3 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. Reinhart sank 2 free throws which proved to be the decisive points in the Saxons’ 50-49 triumph over the Warriors, a class 2A team which advanced to the Elite Eight of the 1A state tourney a year ago.

    In his early coaching days Mark Smith used to worry about the inactivity that comes with winter weather canceling school, practices and games.

    Westminster Christian holds off rival Harvest Jan 17, 2014 12:00 AM
    Westminster Christian came away with a win and both teams played well for the most part, but neither coach was completely satisfied after the Warriors downed Harvest Christian Academy, 61-49, in Northeastern Athletic Conference boys basketball action at Harvest Friday night. For Harvest’s Jeff Boldog, the chief complaint was a turnover-plagued stretch in the second quarter that allowed Westminster to take control. The Lions committed 13 first-half turnovers, which allowed the Warriors to go on a 20-5 run that began with the last basket of the first quarter and ended with Westminster ahead 29-13.

    Following last Friday’s convincing win at No. 16 Neuqua Valley, No. 4 Larkin faces another tough road test at No. 7 Benet Academy on Saturday. The challenge facing Larkin (14-2) senior forwards Drew Jones (6-5), Brayden Royse (6-5) and freshman Christian Negron (6-5) is Benet 6-foot-9 center Sean O’Mara. Committed to Xavier, O’Mara scored 17 points last Friday in the Redwings’ 61-56 win at No. 8 York (14-2). Like Benet (9-4), Larkin has played a tough nonconference schedule, including games against Morgan Park and Zion-Benton. However, the Royals have yet to face a big man as skilled as O’Mara.
