  • Fast start powers Zion-Benton against Lake Zurich Dec 14, 2013 12:00 AM
    A slow start did not prove to be a detriment for the tortoise in his famous race against the hare — but it sure turned out to be a deal-breaker for Lake Zurich on Saturday night. The Bears played nearly even with Zion-Benton in the second half, but their slow start was the determining factor in a 69-55 North Suburban Conference Lake Division loss in Zion.

Libertyville senior running back Conor Simpson went out in style, rushing for 186 yards and 2 touchdowns. Sophomore Riley Lees also scored a pair of TDs for the winners, tallying on a 7-yard run to give the Wildcats a 14-0 lead in the second quarter, then racing 76 yards on a kickoff return to give his team the lead for good 21-16 in the third quarter.

  • Zion-Benton survives tenacious Wauconda Oct 18, 2013 12:00 AM
    Bulldogs are known for their tenacity, and never giving up. That’s exactly the spirit that the Wauconda Bulldogs displayed Friday night on a crisp fall evening at Zion-Benton in a North Suburban Conference crossover game with playoff implications. Unfortunately for these Bulldogs, their tenacity was not accompanied by quite enough bite. Wauconda fell short 20-13 after losing the ball on downs at the Zee-Bees’ 14-yard line with 43 seconds remaining. The loss takes the Bulldogs (4-4) pretty much out of the playoff picture, barring a minor miracle.

  • Warren nails it in dress rehearsal May 25, 2013 12:00 AM
    A Carpenter disguised as Harry Potter, complete with painted-on black-rimmed eyeglasses, wielded not a wand, but rather a right arm to work magic. Way to swing your tool, Jenny Carpenter.

In capturing their own Class 4A regional championship with a 7-2 win over the Zee-Bees, the revved-up Blue Devils kept up the fun. The face-makeup participants included winning pitcher Carpenter, Megan Sowa (Indian warrior), Lisiann Rodriguez (Hello Kitty), Megan Scott (Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, Batman) and Selaina Coronado (Joker).

"I was waiting for my catcher," Bulldogs pitcher Caitlyn Moran said. "And then I was like, Oh, look. There's a rainbow.' "It was great," Moran added. "It just added to everything."
