  • Prospect passes key test against Hersey as Liva soars Oct 9, 2014 10:19 PM
    Last season, Prospect ended Hersey’s six-year string of girls swimming and diving championships in the Mid-Suburban East. This fall, it looks like Prospect has started a streak of its own. On senior night for the Knights at Wheeling’s pool, Prospect used a 1-2-3 finish in the 100-yard backstroke to pull away from Hersey 101-85 in the matchup pitting the top two teams in the MSL East. Prospect still needs a victory against Wheeling next week for an outright championship, but the toughest obstacle to repeat has been cleared — and in breathtaking fashion. Knights senior diver Dana Liva made sure of that, hitting all six of her dives on the way to breaking her own team and pool records with a 311.65 score. The lowest score the Wisconsin-bound standout received on any dive was a 6. She was awarded nothing below an 8 on her first dive, a back dive in the pike position.

  • Garmoe’s 73 helps Prospect tie Barrington Sep 30, 2014 8:32 PM
    Robert Garmoe already knew what it was like to be a conference champion, having won the Mid-Suburban League individual junior varsity title as a freshman last year. This season, the Prospect sophomore golfer did it again — but this time on a much bigger stage. Garmoe fired a blistering 73 – a round that included a 35 on the back nine, the only under-par 9 hole mark of the day by any competitor – to win MSL varsity medalist honors Tuesday on a chilly, windy day at Chevy Chase Golf Course. The sophomore’s stellar round help boost the Knights to a co-title, as Prospect shared the team crown with Barrington. The Broncos, led by 74s from Tom Calbi and Cole Kempinski, entered Tuesday’s MSL tourney with 22 total points based on an 11-0 regular season record – but the Knights bested the Broncos at the meet in Wheeling 301-305 to forge a tie for the overall championship.
