  • 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.”

  • Ledinsky saves the day for Jacobs Feb 22, 2013 10:23 PM
    With the game still undecided, Jacobs senior forward Nick Ledinsky made sure the Golden Eagles would end the regular season with a victory with some late game heroics at both ends of the court. Ledinsky, who nailed a 3-pointer to give the Golden Eagles the lead for good, 52-49 with 2:36 remaining, blocked am 18-footer from Woodstock's Jordan Turner at the buzzer. The end result was a Jacobs 54-52 win over the Blue Streaks in a battle of third place teams in Fox Valley Conference crossover boys basketball action in Algonquin Friday night.

     
  • Cullen still unbeaten; Cary-Grove 2nd in FVC Jan 26, 2013 9:12 PM
    It was clear going into Saturday's Fox Valley Conference finals that Crystal Lake Central's five-year reign as the league wrestling champion was over. The question was, would Cary-Grove's navy and white or McHenry's black and orange be the new colors of FVC wrestling royalty. McHenry's lead wasn't safe up only 10 points after Friday's prelims but sending 13 of 14 into the semifinals to Cary-Grove's 10 didn't seem to make the Warriors nervous. The Trojans closed in early with first place wins in 2 of the first 3 matches and watched three wrestlers earn titles, but McHenry grew stronger in the heavier classes and garnered 3 first-place winners, 3 second-place winners and 4 third-place medals to grab the overall championship over Cary-Grove, 261.50-210.

     
  • Cary-Grove chasing McHenry in FVC tournament Jan 25, 2013 11:30 PM

The top two clubs in the Valley division are separated by 10 points (90-80) when action resumes today at 9 a.m., while Crystal Lake South stands third overall with 68 points, followed closely by Huntley which is one point behind the Gators in fourth.

    Shyanne Ludwick couldn't wait to play a basketball game in 2013. After all, she and her Grayslake North teammates were stuck on 13 wins after losing the final game of the Northern Illinois Holiday Classic way back on Dec. 21. Who would feel lucky about that? "It feels good to be back," Ludwick said. "Too long of a break." Lucky Knights. Grayslake North scored 13 points in the opening quarter, got a game-high 13 points from Brittney Thibeaux, enjoyed a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter and held off visiting Woodstock 45-34 in a Fox Valley Fox Division battle Friday night.
