  • Ouch: Last-second loss stings Grayslake North Jan 5, 2013 11:36 PM
    Seconds after his boys basketball squad lost on yet another buzzer-beater, Grayslake North coach Todd Grunloh ran to console a member of Team Grunloh. Kennedy Grunloh was crying loudly, and not because Lionel "Jr." Ortiz gave visiting Woodstock North a thrilling, 62-60 win in a Fox Valley Fox Division opener by sinking his winning shot over Kennedy's favorite player, A.J. Fish. "She fell," Grunloh said of his 3½-year-old daughter. "She must have been on the edge of her seat." Who wasn't?

  • Grayslake North wins outright Fox Division title Oct 20, 2012 12:03 AM
    Grayslake North had already locked up a spot in this year's playoffs, not to mention at least a share of the Fox Valley Conference's Fox Division title heading into Friday night's clash at Woodstock North. A loss against the Thunder, and it still would be considered a very successful season for the Knights. But Grayslake North wanted to erase the memories of last year's season-ending loss to the Thunder and take home their first outright Fox Division crown. The Knights achieved both of those objectives with a 35-29 victory, bringing years of frustration and heartache to a screeching halt.

  • Woodstock North rattles Hampshire Oct 12, 2012 11:47 PM
    The Fox Valley Conference’s first-ever game in Fairbanks, Alaska between Hampshire and Woodstock North was a huge success, and the conference would like to hold more games in exotic locales, preferably Jamaica or Cancun. But seriously, it only felt like Alaska in northern Woodstock, but the Thunder put the Whip-Purs’ offense in a deep freeze in a 46-14 Fox Division win.

  • Two-way seniors benefit Woodstock North Oct 5, 2012 11:51 PM
    You might think all those two-way starters in Woodstock North's lineup would just fall down from exhaustion in the second half of football games. No such thing, evidently. After a scoreless tie following one quarter in Grayslake, the Thunder used a pair of those two-way players to pull away from the Rams and at the same time become playoff eligible. The Thunder (5-2, 3-1) scored 27 unanswered points and beat Central 39-7 on Friday night.

  • Dundee-Crown comeback falls short Sep 28, 2012 11:36 PM
    The Chargers’ comeback came up 5 yards short. With Dundee-Crown driving and a chance to tie, the Chargers were stopped at the Woodstock North 5-yard line on third down. They settled for RJ Schmidt’s 22-yard field goal. D-C got the ball back with a chance to go ahead, but a holding penalty killed the momentum and quarterback Garrett Ryan was sacked on fourth down. The Thunder took over and ran out the clock, holding on for a 25-20 Fox Valley Conference crossover victory in Woodstock Friday night.

  • FVC Fox competitive top to bottom Aug 22, 2012 7:44 PM
    A football team has to be pretty sly these days to win the competitive Fox Division of the Fox Valley Conference outright. Three teams shared the Fox Division crown last season: Crystal Lake Central (6-4, 5-1), Grayslake Central (7-3, 5-1) and third-year program Woodstock North (7-3, 5-1). All three made the playoffs but lost in the first round. CL Central looks like the team to beat in this year's FVC Fox hunt, according to most league coaches, but the Tigers will likely be challenged by offensive powerhouse Grayslake North and skilled Woodstock North.

  • Hampshire nabs 4th straight regional title Feb 17, 2012 11:05 PM
    Looking at the 52-43 final score and assuming that Hampshire cruised past Woodstock North in the final of the Class 3A Hampshire girls basketball regional Friday night would be a serious mistake. The Whip-Purs faced plenty of adversity, some dished out by the Thunder, and some of their own making. But they gritted it out to win their fourth straight regional title and advance to the Sycamore sectional, where they will face Kaneland (19-9) at 8:10 p.m. Monday.

  • Grayslake Central: FVC Fox champs Feb 18, 2012 12:28 AM
    Grayslake Central’s boys basketball team knew what was at stake when it hosted Woodstock North on Friday night. If the Rams won and Grayslake North lost, the Rams would clinch the Fox Valley Conference Fox Division. Mission accomplished, as the Rams held the Thunder to 5 points in the first quarter and went on to win 69-47, while Grayslake North lost to Huntley 79-58. It was Grayslake Central coach Brian Moe’s second division championship in his fourth year.

  • Larkin takes title at Hoops for Healing Nov 26, 2011 9:29 PM
    After winning a total of 4 games last year, Larkin’s boys basketball team didn’t waste much time in getting to 4 this season. The Royals’ fourth victory in as many games earned them the championship honors at the Woodstock/Woodstock North Hoops for Healing Tournament Saturday. Larkin (4-0) finished the tournament tied with Belvidere and Rockton Hononegah with perfect 4-0 marks. The first tiebreaker was total points allowed meaning Larkin was going to have to limit a pesky Woodstock North (1-3) to no more than 46 points in Saturday’s final game. With a tough defensive stand, the Royals took a 62-45 victory over the Thunder to close out the tournament.

  • Woodstock North tops Hampshire Oct 14, 2011 11:06 PM
    Missed opportunities helped do in Hampshire Friday night. The Whip-Purs got inside the red zone 3 times in the first half, but came away with only 6 points.
