  • Cary-Grove’s Gomez impressive at state Feb 19, 2015 10:05 PM
    While tournament favorites Michael Cullen, Eric Barone and Christian Brunner dominated their first-day tournament opponents, the story at the IHSA Class 3A individual state wrestling tournament Thursday still has to be of Gomez, the Cary-Grove senior.

  • Grayslake Central’s Makey making good in third downstate trip Feb 19, 2015 9:49 PM
    It’s easy to dwell on the rich wrestling tradition of Lake County’s perennial powers such as Libertyville and Grant. But there’s certainly room for more in that category, and Grayslake Central’s fast-growing program would love to join it. With competitors like Jon Makey around, the Rams certainly have taken a step in that direction. Coach Mark Stewart and Makey, a four-year veteran of the program, have formed a terrific partnership. And now, after the first day of the wrestling state touranment, Makey has broken new ground with his first state tournament victory. The senior now turns his attention to bigger and better things. Makey (41-3) will meet Chase Vosburgh (42-0) of Mt. Vernon in the 11 a.m. Class 2A quarterfinal session with an opportunity to enhance his chances at a state medal.
