  • North Central adding menís volleyball Sep 17, 2013 10:42 PM
    North Centrals Collegeís athletic department announced Tuesday that the school will add menís volleyball as its 23rd varsity sport. Athletic director Jim Miller said the school will begin the multiyear process of building up and creating the new team. The decision to add menís volleyball wasnít spontaneous, womenís volleyball coach Karen Bunkenburg said. The school had been looking for a new varsity sport, and the interest was already there from the students. Bunkenburg said she had groups of students come up to her every year asking to help them start a team. Last year she and a group of students started the North Central menís volleyball club team. Although the decision to start the team has been made, it will be some time before there is a Cardinals team on the court. The school hasnít set up a timeline for finding a coach. In the meantime Bunkenburg will remain the team club advisor. The womenís coach said she hopes to be involved in the nation-wide search for a new coach and that a committee would gather to decide on a timeline. For now the team will stay at the club level. Bunkenburg doesnít expect to see a varsity team play before the 2015-16 school year. While the sport is popular at the high school level, North Central will be one of only a few schools in the CCIW with a menís team. All of North Central stands to gain from the new team, Bunkenburg said, because with a menís team new recruiting outlets will open up to bring in students. Benedictine: Following a dominating win against North Park over the weekend, Benedictine football players have been named both the offensive and defensive player of the week in the NACC. Jarrett Lecas and Michael McNulty accounted for 3 touchdowns in the Eagles 36-10 victory. Lecas, a freshman defensive back, intercepted two passes, returned one for a touchdown, and deflected another pass. He also tied for the team lead in tackles with 11. McNulty ran for 169 yards and had 2 touchdowns of his own on his 35 rushes. This is the senior from Elmhurstís first year with the Eagles. WheatonCollege: The Thunder womenís soccer team picked up right where it left off last season. The team held on to its No. 1 ranking in the country this week and added another victory Tuesday to seal it. After the 2012 season saw Wheaton reach the national semifinals led by a group of newcomers, the now veteran team is on top of the NSCAA Division III Coaches Poll for the second consecutive week. The Thunder then went on the road Tuesday afternoon and defeated Alma College 4-2 to improve to 6-0-0 on the season. Three women found the back of the net for Wheaton, one each for Sydney Sharkey and Ally Witt and two goals from Leah DeMoss. Wheatonís biggest test of the early season will come Saturday when the Thunder travels to third-ranked Washington University in St. Louis. The two teams last faced off in the national quarterfinals last year, Wheaton won 3-1.

     
  • Klaas retires as COD coach Sep 10, 2013 10:45 PM
    For the first time in 35 years Don Klaas will not be leading the menís basketball team at College of DuPage. The Hall of Fame coach has announced his retirement, leaving as one of the winningest coaches in junior college history. During his tenure at COD, Klaas had a record of 743-382, highlighted by his Division III National Championship team in 2001-02, the same year he was awarded the National Coach of the Year. Klaas was so successful at COD the school named its home court for him. He was inducted into the Illinois Basketball Hall of Fame in 2001 and the National Junior College Athletic Association Hall of Fame the following year. The athletic department has given no hint as to who might succeed Klaas. While the regular season is still months away, the first scrimmages of the year usually take place in October. The Chaparrals are coming off a13-19 season. Wheaton College: Senior all-conference kick returner Justin Swider has been named the CCIW special teams player of the week. Swider helped lead Wheaton College to a 48-27 victory over Benedictine Saturday night with a combined return total of 146 yards and one touchdown. With his team down 13-10 in the second quarter, Swider returned a Benedictine kickoff 93 yards into the end zone. The touchdown gave the Thunder a lead that would never be given back. North Central: Following a dominating performance Saturday, North Centralís John Crain has been named NCAA Division III menís cross country athlete of the week. In what may be a prelude to November, Crain finished the 5-mile course in 25:36, more than 15 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher at the Hanover College Madison Kiwanis Invitational. The Cardinals hope to return to this same course in November for the national championships, where they look to win a third consecutive championship. Crain, an All-America, helped lead North Central to the invitational team title as well as his individual title. This is the first year that the athlete of the week is being named at a national level. Benedictine: Two Benedictine athletes received conference recognition this week following strong performances. Both Candice Cuppini, volleyball, and Nikki Jhanji, soccer, were named NACC player of the week in their respective sport. Cuppini helped lead the Eagles to a weekend sweep of North Central and Lake Forest with a combined 36 kills. The Eagles beat North Central in straight sets then downed Lake Forest 3-1 to sweep the annual Red and Black Triangular. Jhanji, a senior forward for Benedictine, helped her team to a second-place finish at the Sal Vacarro tournament over the weekend. Jhanji scored three goals of her own during the tournament and was involved in all three goals during a 3-1 victory over North Central.
