  • Gorecki nets player of the year honor from Gatorade Mar 12, 2015 5:20 PM
    The stars continue to come out in the Mid-Suburban League. For the second time in three years, a player from the MSL has been named the Gatorade Illinois Girls Basketball Player of the Year. Haley Gorecki, who led Fremd to second placed in the Class 4A state tournament, has earned the 2014-15 award. Two years ago, Rolling Meadows’ Jackie Kemph was crowned the title after leading the Mustangs to second place in the Class 4A tourney.

     
  • Fremd gives championship welcome home to runners up Mar 10, 2015 7:12 PM
    Fremd High School’s girls basketball squad may have come up just short in their quest for a state title, but the Vikings were greeted like champions nonetheless Tuesday at a schoolwide assembly. Fellow students welcomed team members with applause and high-fives during the event, which featured the players presenting school officials with their runners up trophy.

     
  • Fremd enjoys its role in the spotlight Mar 10, 2015 10:00 PM
    More than once during this record-setting season for Fremd’ girls basketball team, Brianna Lewis stole the basketball for a breakaway layup. On Tuesday afternoon, the 5-foot-3 all-area junior guard stole a pep assembly and once again brought familiar roars from the Fremd faithful. At a rally where Fremd students and parents filled the gymnasium bleachers to honor the Class 4A state runners-ups, Lewis wowed the crowd in a dance contest with football players Jack Albrecht and Erik Nelson. She then drew the biggest cheers in an impromptu basketball scrimmage with the school faculty.

  • Benet at its best against Fremd Mar 8, 2015 11:02 AM
    Saving your best for last may be a sports cliché, but that’s exactly what Benet did. The Redwings had a fourth quarter — and a game — they won’t soon forget, running away from Fremd in the final eight minutes to notch a 61-39 win in the championship game of the Class 4A girls basketball state tournament at Redbird Arena Saturday night. Benet (34-3) won its first state championship in its first try and became just the second school, and the first in Class 4A, to win girls state championships in volleyball and basketball in the same school year.

     
  • Fremd charges into title game Mar 6, 2015 11:37 PM
    Fremd left little doubt about just how ready it is to play for a state championship. The Vikings used an 11-0 run early in the first quarter as the springboard to a 57-28 rout of New Trier on Friday night in the Class 4A girls basketball state semifinals at Redbird Arena. Fremd (29-4), playing in a state final tournament for just the second time and the first since the first girls state tournament in 1977, will play Benet Academy (33-3) for the state championship at 8:15 p.m. Saturday. Benet defeated Homewood-Flossmoor 77-71 in Friday’s first semifinal. Fremd and Benet will each be appearing in their first state title game.

  • First things first, as Fremd focuses on New Trier Mar 5, 2015 4:31 PM
    It’s been a season of firsts for the Fremd girls basketball team. And for this latest one, the Vikings have been waiting 38 years. They are appearing in the IHSA final four for the first time since 1977 when they take the floor at 8:15 p.m. Friday against New Trier at Illinois State’s Redbird Arena. Earlier this season, the Vikings took their first team trip via air travel when they played in a tournament in Arizona. A few weeks later, they became the school’s first basketball team to play on a Sunday in their own Chicagoland Classic tournament. Now, they are going for their first state title.

     
  • Big finish for Gorecki’s tale of achievement at Fremd Mar 5, 2015 1:36 PM
    This is truly the way you like to see the stars of girls basketball end their high school playing days. In the final chapter of Haley Gorecki’s storybook prep career, the Fremd senior has landed in the state finals for the first time. Gorecki will take the floor Friday night at Illinois State’s Redbird Arena as the captain of the Daily Herald’s Northwest all-area team. The Duke recruit is also Fremd’s second all-time leading scorer with 2,127 points. She leads a Vikings program that hasn’t played in the final four since 1977, the first year the tournament was played. “It’s crazy,” Gorecki said. “It’s great to make a statement like this for our school which has had so many great players in the past. And to do it for our fans and our community. It’s awesome.”

  • Fremd’s wait for state is over Mar 3, 2015 12:39 AM
    With Frank Sinatra singing ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ on the speaker system in the cozy Hoffman Estates gymnasium, Fremd’s girls basketball team was celebrating its first trip to the IHSA Final Four in 38 years. Unlike when it actually did fly (by airplane) for a tournament in Arizona in late December, the Vikings will gladly settle for their biggest bus ride all season. With a 50-34 victory over Huntley in the Class 4A Hoffman Estates supersectional on Monday night, the Vikings (28-4) will hit the road for Normal this week to face New Trier in Friday’s 8:15 p.m. semifinal at Illinois State’s Redbird Arena.
