  • 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.

  • Cary-Grove a surprising No. 1 seed Feb 20, 2014 11:34 PM
    Cary-Grove coach Ralph Schuetzle and Jacobs coach Jimmy Roberts expressed surprise for different reasons when seeds for the upcoming Class 4A Elgin boys basketball sectional were released on the IHSA website Thursday afternoon. Cary-Grove (15-10, 7-4) was named the No. 1 seed at the Crystal Lake Central regional, followed by Fox Valley Conference Valley Division brethren Prairie Ridge (15-10, 6-5), Jacobs (13-12, 7-3), Crystal Lake South (14-10, 3-7) and Dundee-Crown (6-16, 2-8).

  • 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 ½ 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.

  • Hampshire comes up just short at Woodstock Jan 21, 2014 10:29 PM
    Hampshire just came up one shot short. The Whip-Purs made a couple of key shots down the stretch, but couldn’t get a final one to go down, and they fell to Woodstock, 61-59, in Fox Valley Conference Fox Division boys basketball action in Woodstock Tuesday night.

     
  • 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.

     
  • Rams wraps up FVC Fox title Oct 16, 2013 1:14 PM
    A senior-dominated defense has been a big reason for Grayslake Central’s success on the soccer field this season. On senior night, the “Ram Tough” defense produced a shutout in a division-clinching win. Grayslake Central rolled past visiting Woodstock 7-0 Thursday night to wrap up the Fox Valley Conference Fox Division championship.

     
  • Hampshire on track for playoff berth Oct 11, 2013 11:36 PM
    Woodstock came prepared to stop Hampshire’s primary weapon, but it had no answer for Hampshire’s other weapons. Hampshire’s first play from scrimmage was a 62-yard touchdown pass from Nick Mohlmann to Tim Jansen. That opening play was the springboard for a 48-7 Fox Valley Conference Fox Division victory Friday night that left Hampshire playoff-eligible at 5-2.

     
  • Mooney’s money again for Jacobs Sep 27, 2013 11:42 PM
    Jacobs believes every offensive possession should produce points. That’s why the Golden Eagles used two timeouts on defense to get one final shot to score in the first half of their Fox Valley Conference football crossover with visiting Woodstock on Friday night in Algonquin. They came up empty after getting the ball at their 39-yard line with only 36.6 seconds left. But the first-team offense scored on its other seven possessions and Jacobs (3-2) piled up 502 total yards to extend its winning streak to three games with a 43-21 victory.

     
  • Grayslake North rolls over Woodstock Sep 12, 2013 11:11 PM
    As the Grayslake North football team serenaded the fans and cheerleaders with the school fight song after the Knights’ Fox Valley Conference Fox Division opener with visiting Woodstock, sophomore quarterback Merrick Gentile decided singing just wasn’t his forte. “I can sing, I guess,” the sheepish Gentile said. “I don’t know if I am good at it but I will try.” He ended up belting out a few cords of the fight song before he walked away and took a quick glance at the scoreboard in the North end zone. The final tally, a 42-14 Knights’ win over Woodstock, was a testament to another scintillating performance by the first-year starter.

     
  • Hampshire hoping to make some noise in FVC Fox Aug 26, 2013 9:31 PM
    If defense wins games Hampshire’s football team should be feeling rather good about itself. Whip-Purs coach Dan Cavanaugh, the dean of Fox Valley area football coaches in his 25th season, likes the makeup of his defense, which returns plenty of talent and experience up front in Leighton Sheetz (6-0, 275, DT), Mike Gibas (6-2, 240), Matt Kielbasa (6-2, 250, DE) and Steve Kirkwood (5-10, 185, DE). Inside linebackers Brandan Swanson (6-0, 170) and Ben Bednarek (5-10, 210) also are back.

     
  • FVC Valley wide open, but don’t count out Cary-Grove Aug 26, 2013 8:21 PM
    It’s probably not a good idea to sell the Cary-Grove football team short. Despite graduating a large portion of last year’s team that reached the Class 6A state title game, third-year coach Brad Seaburg is far from waving a white flag for the defending Fox Valley Conference Valley Division champions. “We have the athleticism and we’re starting to see some leadership emerging,” he said of his junior-heavy lineup. “On paper and after seeing what we’ve seen in practice with our enthusiasm, effort and execution so far, we feel like we should be able to compete for a conference championship, for sure.”

     
  • Winter storm postpones boys playoff basketball games Mar 5, 2013 12:22 PM
