  • Geneva’s Navigato picks Buffalo Sep 17, 2014 10:13 PM
    Some who’ve seen Geneva’s Nate Navigato play basketball believe the senior forward may be too unselfish. He’s not too unselfish for Bobby Hurley.

  • Delle Donne, Catchings fight illness, injury Jun 27, 2014 7:09 PM
    Besides championships, fame and fortune, there’s probably nothing more important to elite athletes than their “own terms.” In other words, they want to dictate where they go, how long they stay, and when they finally say goodbye for good. No one wants to be pushed around, or worse yet, pushed out by someone or something else. Just ask Sky forward Elena Delle Donne, who’s got to be wondering if she will ultimately get to navigate her WNBA career on her terms, or if her Lyme Disease and its nasty flare-ups will have the final say. Meanwhile, Indiana Fever forward and former Chicago suburbanite Tamika Catchings has been fighting her own debilitating demon this season, which has led to some understandable questions about her “terms.”

  • Mundelein’s Parola fulfills legacy of all-around excellence Jun 14, 2014 4:57 PM

  • Wauconda’s Magiera will double up at Augustana Jun 2, 2014 9:22 PM

  • Hononegah finishes Libertyville’s stellar season Mar 1, 2014 9:03 PM
    The star-studded and much-anticipated state dual-team quarterfinal between Libertyville and Hononegah turned out to be everything all had expected, unless you were proudly wearing the orange and black of Libertyville. The Wildcats (21-3-0) were bounced out of the tournament following a heartbreaking 32-24 loss Saturday at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington, thus ending a memorable season, as well as the wrestling careers of eight competitors in the Wildcats’ lineup Saturday.

  • National power OPRF too much for Conant Mar 1, 2014 9:12 PM
    Conant came to the Class 3A dual-team wrestling state tournament hoping to put a dent in the side of the favored club from Oak Park-River Forest. But in the Cougars' quarterfinal opener at U.S. Cellular Coliseum, Conant was in a hit-and-run with the Huskies, who rolled right past the MSL champions, as well as two other subsequent foes, en route to a state title late Saturday night. The No. 1-ranked Huskies (28-1-0) sent out a strong message to their latter victims, Hononegah and Marist, after rolling over Conant 59-9 to start their day.

  • State team wrestling: Scouting Northwest Mar 1, 2014 12:02 AM

  • Harper wrestlers making national trip Feb 27, 2014 9:12 PM
    Every junior college wrestler’s goal was to make it to Spokane, Wash., on the first weekend in March. And despite dropping out of this week’s NJCAA wrestling poll, ten Harper College wrestlers made that voyage and are competing in the national championships, which conclude Saturday at the Spokane Convention Center. Four Hawks are nationally ranked in their weight classes. At 184 pounds, No. 7 sophomore Mike Romanelli has the highest ranking for the Hawks.

  • Libertyville makes Elite Eight Feb 25, 2014 10:37 PM
    With such a proud wrestling history, there have been plenty of great seasons at Libertyville. This one has to rank among the very best. The Wildcats are heading to the 3A dual-team state tournament after defeating Barrington 31-20 Tuesday in sectional action. The raucous crowd at Libertyville can follow their favorite team to U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington for a state quarterfinal matchup against Rockton Hononegah at 11 a.m. Saturday. The Indians (26-3-0) advanced to the tournament for the first time since 2005 after handling Prospect 56-6.

  • Montini win worth the trip Feb 25, 2014 10:06 PM
    Imagine for a moment the two bus rides. For Chicago Westinghouse it measured 54 miles one way to Antioch High School. So that gave that team plenty of time to reflect on its mission. Simply knock out that team from Lombard and earn a trip to Bloomington for the team wrestling state meet.

  • Marmion earns another downstate voyage Feb 25, 2014 9:23 PM
    Mt. Carmel wrestling coach John Kading knew the odds were not in favor of the Caravan in its Class 3A sectional dual against Marmion on Tuesday night at Marist. “We were hoping to win the coin toss, which we did,” Kading said. Not much else went right for Mt. Carmel the rest of the night in Chicago. Marmion won 10 of the 12 contested matches and cruised into the Elite Eight for the third time in the last five years with a 44-18 victory. The Cadets (13-3), the defending state runners-up, will face Plainfield Central, which turned back Moline at LaSalle-Peru, Saturday morning in Bloomington.

  • Fate frowns on Lakes as Harvard advances Feb 25, 2014 8:58 PM
    Lakes can chalk this one up to the “it just wasn’t meant to be” category as the Eagles met Harvard in the Class 2A Antioch dual team wrestling sectional Tuesday night. Starting the meet at 132 pounds, the Hornets jumped out to a commanding 33-9 lead after eight matches on the way to a 57-12 victory over Lakes. With the outcome decided, the Eagles chose to forfeit the last four bouts, which certainly wasn’t their game plan headed into the meet. Harvard (22-5) advanced to the Elite Eight quarterfinals at 11 a.m. Saturday against Oak Forest at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington. After winning its first regional in school history, Lakes closed out the 2013-14 season with an 18-7 record.
