    Muddy, wet conditions. Didn’t matter. Annoying mist. Didn’t matter. You get the picture.

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.

  • Woodstock North topples Hampshire Oct 4, 2014 12:21 AM
    The up and down season at Hampshire continues. And so too does the injury bug. Already without starting quarterback Nick Mohlman, the Whip-Purs lost starting running back Devontae Johnson to a knee injury in the second quarter of a 21-9 Fox Valley Conference Fox Division loss to Woodstock North Friday night in Hampshire. But their unfortunate luck doesn’t end there.

The Trojans rolled up 463 yards of total offense on their way to a 47-7 victory.

  • Lakes handles Woodstock North Sep 5, 2014 11:52 PM
    Jake Balliu’s big night helped Lakes’ football team improve to 2-0 Friday night, as the Eagles knocked off visiting Woodstock North 30-17 in nonconference action. The senior rushed 13 times for 141 yards and caught 3 passes for 30 yards. Balliu scored on a 64-yard run and also hauled in a 16-yard TD toss from Jordan Mercure. Mercure (10-of-15 passing, 111 yards) threw touchdown passes to Matt Heerema (2 yards) and Lucas Kuzmanovich (14 yards), as well. Mercure added 68 rushing yards on 11 rushes. Dan Recker and Alex Jennrich led the Lakes defense with 11 tackles each, and Cody Brumm chipped in a 37-yard field goal, as the Eagles extended a 7-0 advantage after one quarter to 24-10 by halftime.

  • Back in action, Ciolek leads Wauconda Aug 30, 2014 10:24 PM
    All that time Stevie Ciolek spent on the sideline last season. Not allowed to strap on a helmet and hit. Not permitted to run drills with his Wauconda football teammates. Then Friday night, when the senior defensive back finally returned to the field for a varsity game, lightning hit Woodstock North. Ciolek — and all of his teammates — would have to exhibit patience again, as the season opener was suspended in the second quarter. On Saturday, the sun shone at Woodstock North and was topped by Ciolek’s even brighter smile. His touchdown return for a touchback provided a much-needed spark for Wauconda, and the Bulldogs took advantage by rallying for a 28-21 win.

  • 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.

  • 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.
