  • Back in form, Miller leads Barrington at PalatineMay 22, 2014 12:00 AM
    One month ago, the outlook for Barrington junior Scotty Miller was anything but bright. Having suffered through walking pneumonia and losing weight from his already slight frame, Miller looked like anything but the standout sprinter who medaled twice at the Class 3A track and field meet a year ago. Fast forward to the Class 3A Palatine Sectional and any signs of a weakened or broken down Miller were nowhere to be found. Miller captured state-qualifying berths in three events for the first time as he helped lead the Broncos to the overall team title on Thursday.

    Despite trailing 10-4 going into its last at-bat, the noise level in the Conant softball dugout was as loud as ever to start the top of the seventh inning at Fremd.

    Barrington builds another MSL winnerMay 17, 2014 12:00 AM
    For weeks, Barrington has been building toward the Mid-Suburban League tournament, knowing its talent and depth might be the difference in the final tally. And Saturday afternoon, the Broncos were a ferocious bunch at doubles and used command performances from Zach Hennenfent and Mohammed Walji at Nos. 2 and 3 singles to run away from the field for a second consecutive league title at Schaumburg. The Broncos outscored Buffalo Grove 57-45 to win it, with Fremd (34), MSL East champ Prospect (31) and Rolling Meadows (30) rounding out the first five in the touranment standings.

  • Palatine’s boys water polo team celebrates its 12-10 victory against Fremd in Saturday’s sectional championship game.

    Proven Palatine turns back fired-up FremdMay 17, 2014 12:00 AM
    Top-seeded Palatine seemingly had it all under control, leading 11-7 against Fremd after three quarters in the championship game of the boys water polo sectional hosted by the Pirates. The Vikings, seeded No. 6, did everything it could to spring another upset with a concerted fourth-quarter surge, but in the end Palatine’s experience held sway in a 12-10 decision. The Pirates earned a second trip to state under coach Joe Grzybek, but the most recent one was back in 2006. In the intervening years, there’ve been consistently strong teams and conference championships — but also a series of heartbreaking losses in sectional semifinals and finals. “It’s nice to have a different outcome, the one we were looking for,” said Grzybek. “Everyone has their own battle — teams tend to get stuck at a certain level. For us, we’ve been able to make a lot of sectional finals, so that’s been our challenge, to get through.”

    Barrington nips Fremd for MSL titleMay 16, 2014 12:00 AM
    Heading into the final race of the night, senior John Andraschko knew he had just one job to do. And it was a big one: Anchor the Broncos’ 1,600-meter relay relay to a win. That was the position the Broncos were in as two-time defending Mid Suburban League boys track champion Fremd held a 114-109.5 lead before the final race started. “We just had to focus on what we could control,” Andraschko said. “Our focus was on ourselves and about going out to try and win the race.” Andraschko anchored the group that included Brendan Melynchuk, Curtis Monahan, and Adam Phillips to a win in 3:28.07. The Broncos then got help from second-place Hersey (3:28.84) and third-place Palatine (3:29.56), all of which added up to a Barrington victory in the MSL meet. By one-half point. Barrington won its first conference title since 2007 with 119.5 points. The two-time defending champion Vikings were second with 119 points followed by Schaumburg (96.5), Palatine (73) and Hersey (71).

Palatine and Barrington once again locked up in a tense battle, but this time the Pirates were able to get the edge on the Mid-Suburban League champion Fillies to win the sectional title with 106 points. Warren junior sensation Brittny Ellis switched into the 1,600 relay and led the Blue Devils to a come-from-behind victory in 4:01.17. And Lakes junior twins Danielle and Brittani Griesbaum moved from Class 2A to Class 3A, but the result remained the same as they combined to qualify in six events.

  • Valacak’s return a big win for FremdMay 12, 2014 12:00 AM
    When the softball game between Fremd and Schaumburg was suspended due to lightning on Monday, the Saxons were holding a 4-3 lead with the Vikings batting in the bottom of the seventh inning. The hosts had their catcher, Holly Straup, standing on second base after a leadoff double and there was one out when the home plate umpire halted the Mid-Suburban West softball contest. But no matter what the score ends up, the Vikings are not going to come out losers in this game. The best news of the day for them was seeing former assistant coach TJ Valacak in the dugout. It was his first time back on the diamond since he began battling Leukemia last fall.
