    The Grayslake North Knights hosted the Woodstock Blue Streaks for girls basketball action on Saturday, Jan. 24 in Grayslake.

  • Game effort, but no win for Grayslake North Jan 24, 2015 10:00 PM
    Grayslake North’s weekend in Washington included four games. And more games. “They made a game ‘American Idol’ and ‘America’s Got Talent,’ ” freshman guard Brandi Thibeaux said of her teammates. “It was just crazy.” The Knights got singing talent? Maybe not. “It wasn’t the best,” Thibeaux said with a laugh. “It was funny, though.” Winners of four straight games for the first time this season, Grayslake North flashed its basketball talents Saturday against visiting Woodstock. Unfortunately for the Knights, it went as well as their singing in central Illinois last weekend. Woodstock saw an 11-point lead early in the second half trimmed to one on three occasions, including twice in the fourth quarter, before capturing a 46-38 decision in a Fox Valley Fox Division contest.

  • Woods’ putback propels Hampshire past Woodstock Jan 20, 2015 10:51 PM
    It figured that Brennen Woods would score the winning basket at the overtime buzzer. Hampshire’s sophomore forward had done just about everything else to lead the Whip-Purs to an improbable 74-73 win against Woodstock in Fox Valley Fox Division action in Hampshire. With time running out and Hampshire down a point, Drew Doran’s long jumper caromed off the rim. But Woods raced down the lane untouched and put it in, the last of his 30 points on the evening.

  • Close call, but Grayslake North falls Dec 12, 2014 11:17 PM
    As Woodstock’s gym emptied to the sounds of happy home fans and blaring music, Grayslake North’s boys basketball players sat quietly on their bench and changed into their sweats. There was ample room for a team that, apparently, didn’t need its locker room. “I thought they would have gone in, but I guess they’re used to changing out here,” Knights coach Todd Grunloh said. “Maybe they wanted to put on a show for everyone.” The better show by the visitors came in the fourth quarter. Grayslake North erased a nine-point deficit with 5½ minutes left, only to fall 55-54 in a Fox Valley Fox Division opener Friday night.

  • Jacobs Van Vlierbergen makes it a FVC trifecta Oct 18, 2014 8:43 PM
    Muddy, wet conditions. Didn’t matter. Annoying mist. Didn’t matter. You get the picture. Nothing was going to deter Jacobs senior standout Lauren Van Vlierbergen from capturing her third straight Fox Valley Conference individual championship. Van Vlierbergen, who finished fourth in Class 3A in 2013, posted a 3-mile time of 17:53.8 to finish first at Saturday’s Fox Valley Conference girls cross country championship at Hickory Nut Grove Park in Cary.

  • Defense joins the fun as Grayslake North wins by shutout Oct 10, 2014 11:47 PM
    After a tough loss on the road last week at Crystal Lake Central, the Grayslake North defense did something Friday night in a homecoming contest with visiting Woodstock that it had done just one other time in school history – that is, pitch a shutout. Woodstock was held to just 192 total yards from scrimmage and 10 first downs as the Knights bounced back with a resounding 42-0 win over the Blue Streaks. The only other shutout North has had in its history came in a 34-0 win over Mendota in 2011.

  • Grayslake Central falls short Sep 27, 2014 12:26 AM
    Woodstock 50, Grayslake Central 15: The visiting Rams lost the Fox Valley Fox game to fall to 0-5 and 0-3 in the division. Woodstock improved to 1-4 and 1-2 in the FVC Fox.

  • Burba’s big hit all right with Grayslake Central Jun 4, 2014 10:07 PM
    Grayslake Central’s baseball team had the right guy up. The lefty hitter who plays left field. “Pat gets up and does what he did last year — get clutch hits,” winning pitcher Justin Guryn said. Exactly right. Pat Burba — who else? — delivered with the bat Wednesday, lifting the Rams to a 2-1 victory over “Cinderella” Woodstock in a Class 3A sectional semifinal at Marian Central Catholic in Woodstock. Burba’s one-out, bases-loaded single in the bottom of the seventh gave Grayslake Central (27-10) a walk-off win — after the Blue Streaks tied the score in the top of the inning — and earned the Rams a berth in Saturday’s 11 a.m. final against the winner of today’s 3 p.m. game between Vernon Hills and Gordon Tech.

  • Grayslake North’s Booker streaks past FVC field May 16, 2014 11:13 PM
    If you blinked you missed Grayslake North standout sprinter Titus Booker. Booker sprinted past the field at Friday night’s Fox Valley Conference meet held at Crystal Lake Central, winning the 100 meters in 11.06 and the 200 in a clocking of 22.20. “I just ran with my heart tonight and it worked out very well,” said the talented Knights junior. “I knew it would be good competition tonight so I trained hard. I feel very confident going into the sectionals next week.” McHenry, led by junior distance standout Jesse Reiser, claimed the conference championship with a score of 103.50.

  • Crystal Lake South happy with FVC runner-up finish Feb 1, 2014 8:03 PM
    Sure, Crystal Lake South coach Ross Ryan would like to have hoisted the Fox Valley Conference wrestling tournament championship trophy Saturday at McHenry High School. But Ryan was happy with his team’s second place conference finish. Wrestling without 195-pounder Brian Pence, the Gators (163 ˝ points) were runner-up to Crystal Lake Central, which claimed top honors with 199 points. Cary-Grove was third a half point behind South with 163 points.

  • Burlington Central wins with defense Jan 15, 2014 9:28 PM
    On a night when its offense was as frigid as the temperature outside, the Burlington Central boys basketball team relied on defense to win. The Rockets, who made just 13 of 56 shots for 23 percent, wreaked havoc on Woodstock defensively and pulled away late in the fourth quarter for a 37-28 nonconference win on Rocket Hill. “We battled and found a way to get the W,” said Central coach Brett Porto. “It wasn’t pretty and there were a lot of people shaking their heads but someone had to win and we won.”

  • Burlington Central preparing to leave Big Northern Nov 18, 2013 10:57 PM
    Burlington Central intends to leave the Big Northern Conference to join a new league, and the Rockets have company. Under a proposal presented to the District 301 school board by Burlington Central principal Matthew Haug and athletic director Steve Diversey at Monday’s meeting, the school would withdraw from the Big Northern Conference’s East Division following the 2014-15 school year along with Marengo, Harvard and Genoa-Kingston, all original members of the BNC, founded in 1991.

  • With regrets, Grayslake Central’s season is over Oct 25, 2013 11:52 PM
    Coming up short is never enjoyable. The little things, such as leaving a putt short on the golf course or hitting a baseball to the warning track, provide momentary disbelief. Failing to capitalize on an opportunity to make the state playoffs brings with it a bit more disappointment as Grayslake Central and its fans experienced Friday night in a 30-20 loss to Woodstock in the Fox Valley Conference Fox Division season finale.
