  • 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 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.

  • Hampshire stymies Woodstock North Feb 16, 2014 8:16 AM
    Hampshire clung to a narrow lead against Woodstock North for most of the first half. But after the Thunder's Josh Jandron went out with his fourth foul early in the third quarter, the Whip-Purs started to pull away, finishing with a 72-59 win in Fox Valley Conference Valley Division boys basketball action Saturday afternoon in Woodstock. About the time Jandron left the game, Matt Bridges came alive for Hampshire. He scored 20 of his game-high 25 points after intermission. Drew Doran and Ryan Cork added 13 apiece for Hampshire (11-13, 7-3).

  • 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.

    McHenry will head into the final day of the Fox Valley Conference wrestling tournament just ahead of Crystal Lake Central and CL South when action resumes Saturday morning, beginning with the semifinal round at the Warriors’ West campus. Both Central and South trail McHenry by 4.5 points, 88.5 — 84.0, while Dundee-Crown and Huntley round out the top 5 with 75 and 71 overall points. Cary-Grove stands sixth with 70 points.

  • 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.

  • Booker paces big win for Grayslake North Oct 26, 2013 12:06 AM
    Grayslake North 55, Woodstock North 37: Titus Booker rushed 26 times for 274 yards and 5 touchdowns, as the visiting Knights closed out the regular season with their seventh win. Grayslake North (7-2), which finished 5-1 in the FVC Fox, also received a big game from Merrick Gentile. The sophomore quarterback rushed for 111 yards and 3 TDS on just 8 carries.

  • Grayslake Central passes up Woodstock N. Oct 19, 2013 12:01 AM
    Come baseball season, you will spot Grayslake Central center fielder Matt Loeffl making sure no ball goes over his head. Clearly, baseball is his sport, but you can see how his fly-catching skills pay off during football season. He doesn’t drop anything on a football field, and when quarterback Alex Lennartz is on target, Loeffl can do some nice things to help the Rams. He caught a pair of scoring passes from Lennartz in the final home game for these two seniors. The Rams (4-4) remained playoff-eligible with a 28-12 win over visiting Woodstock North on Friday night in Grayslake.

  • Hampshire’s push to playoff berth continues Oct 4, 2013 11:09 PM
    Hampshire turned in a complete performance. Coming off a lopsided loss last week, the Whip-Purs excelled in all three phases while downing Woodstock North, 42-12, in Fox Valley Conference Fox Division play Hampshire Friday night. Nick Kielbasa ran for 167 yards and 3 scores, and Mason Fleury scored twice for the Whips, who moved to 4-2 overall and 2-2 in the league.

  • Great start, great outcome for Lakes at Woodstock N. Sep 6, 2013 11:46 PM
    If you were at Woodstock North on Friday night, you may have caught a glimpse of Lakes coach Luke Mertens pinching himself. Mertens witnessed his Eagles get off to a dream start on both sides of the ball as the Eagles built a commanding lead on their way to a 45-14 nonconference victory over the Woodstock North Thunder.

  • Wauconda passes up Woodstock N. in a thriller Aug 31, 2013 12:05 AM
    Wauconda sophomore quarterback Kevin Malisheski told his receiver, Josh Anderson, that if he got open his pass was destined for a touchdown. For a game delayed for about 90 minutes, both Wauconda and visiting Woodstock North put on a show that was worthy of a playoff game. For the home-standing Bulldogs, it looked like North’s 13-7 lead would last the entire game. That’s before a 16-second span of plays that turned the game around.

  • 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.”

  • Hampshire notches share of FVC Fox titl Feb 19, 2013 11:16 PM
    The celebration was muted considering the magnitude of the accomplishment. The Hampshire boys basketball players shook hands with their counterparts from Woodstock North after Tuesday’s 63-46 Senior Night victory, displaying few outward signs of having just clinched a share of the program’s first title as a member of the Fox Valley Conference. Sure, there were high fives, satisfied smiles and assorted flying hip bumps, but nothing too crazy. No Gatorade buckets were dumped over coach Bob Barnett’s head or anything of the sort. “This is too nice of a suit for a Gatorade bucket,” reminded Barnett, nattily attired as always. “They don’t have the money to pay for the dry cleaning.”

  • Crystal Lake South’s pressure produces win Feb 8, 2013 10:57 PM
    Lauren Del Vecchio loves the labor that goes with playing the point in Crystal Lake South’s diamond-and-one, full-court pressure. “It’s my favorite position,” the 6-foot senior said. “I like to watch their eyes and get up on them. It gets me going and helps get the team going.” There was no doubt about how much defense got the Gators rolling in Friday night’s Fox Valley Conference girls basketball crossover. They turned 27 turnovers into 20 points and pitched a third-quarter shutout in a 50-32 victory over visiting Woodstock North at Gator Alley.

  • Free throws the difference in Hampshire loss Feb 5, 2013 11:12 PM
    Free throws made the difference. Woodstock North led almost all the way, then survived a furious late rally to defeat Hampshire, 43-40, in Fox Valley Conference Fox Division girls basketball action in Hampshire Tuesday night. Down by 6, the Whip-Purs converted steals on consecutive possessions into 5 points to get within 1 on Jenny Dumoulin’s 3-pointer. After Woodstock answered with a free throw, Hampshire got to the line with a chance to tie but missed the first of the one-and-one. Samantha Ahr then added a free throw for the final margin.

  • 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.
