  • Fremd's Leigh Farina rounds the bases after hitting a home run against Elk Grove.

    Flexible Farina a force for FremdMar 20, 2014 12:00 AM
    Fremd softball fans have watched Leigh Farina start at shortstop for the past two years. But since starting the game at the age of five, the versatile senior has been everywhere on the field, minus only the pitcher's mound. “You can play Leigh anywhere,” said Fremd coach Jim Weaver of the senior all-stater, a two-time all-area selection. “You would be very sound defensively if you had nine Leigh Farinas in the field.” And there aren't many better in the batter's box, either. Batting No. 2 as a sophomore, Farina hit .443 with 44 runs, 51 hits, 35 RBI, 13 doubles, 3 triples, 5 homers and stole 9 bases. The numbers only got better as a junior. Farina hit .495 with 23 extra base hits. But that wasn't enough. “I'm trying to get over .500 this season,” said Farina, who will be trying to do it from the No. 3 spot in the order for the second straight season.

  • Fremd salutes a team worthy of admirationMar 14, 2014 12:00 AM
    Both perfection and a nearly perfect season went by the wayside on Friday night in the Class 4A sectional final at Lake Zurich. Previously unbeaten Fremd had things rolling early but eventually fell to Stevenson 63-48. In acknowledgment of a superlative season, the raucous Fremd faithful cheered wildly for the seniors as coach Bob Widlowski substituted for them at the end of game. “They will look back at this with a good memory,” Widlowski said. “This hurts right now because they believed they could be successful.”

     
  • Stevenson's Matt Johnson, holding plaque, and teammates celebrate winning the Class 4A sectional final over Fremd on Friday at Lake Zurich.

    Stevenson's starpower too much for FremdMar 14, 2014 12:00 AM
    It was all flashbulbs and fans, a kind of mini-paparazzi moment for Stevenson junior Matt Johnson following the Class 4A Lake Zurich sectional final against No. 2 seeded Fremd. Not for a moment did Johnson, who transferred to Stevenson from Batavia before the school year, think any of this was going to happen. “I knew they had some good players and all,” said Johnson who'd fashioned himself a selfie moment with the Stevenson fans, “but I didn't think of all this.” A couple of those good players had really good nights Friday night. The junior tandem of Jalen Brunson and Connor Cashaw were too much for the previously unbeaten Vikings to match. Brunson tallied a game-best 27 points and Cashaw went for 20 points and 10 rebounds to lift the top-seeded Patriots to a hard-fought 63-48 win over the previously unbeaten Vikings on Friday night.
