  • Wheeling’s Zuunbayan, Barrington’s Smith secure sectional titles Feb 14, 2015 11:01 PM
    Tulga Zuunbayan and Julius Smith shut the door on their wrestling opponents all weekend long, including late Saturday as the Mid-Suburban League pair closed out their rivals to celebrate Class 3A sectional championships when the action came to an end in the fieldhouse at Barrington. Zuunbayan allowed for the possibility of still bigger and better things ahead as the Wheeling junior delivered a dazzling six-minute effort in his 152-pound final against DJ Penick of Highland Park to earn his first sectional title. That netted Zuubayan a third consecutive trip downstate. Smith, meanwhile, won a memorable championship during the final home match of his career, sending the Broncos standout to Champaign for a second time.

     
  • Gold-medal efforts at Barrington Feb 14, 2015 9:00 PM
    The wide array of sports being contested at Barrington High School on Saturday almost gave the campus the feel you’d find at a Olympic-style winter sports festival. Wrestling over here, basketball over there — and down this hallway, the Mid-Suburban League boys swimming and diving championships. And in the pool, the host Broncos ended up celebrating a successful defense of their MSL team title, emerging on top in a finish that was much more tightly grouped than usual. Barrington won with 233 points, followed closely by Fremd (218). Rolling Meadows (183) turned in its highest-ever finish in third place, with Palatine (169) taking a big jump up as well to fourth.

Barrington has clinched a share of the title already, with Palatine trailing by a game.

  • Solka helps Prairie Ridge co-op win at Lake Park Feb 12, 2015 11:39 PM
    Prairie Ridge co-op junior Maddie Solka wasn’t even supposed to compete on Thursday night at the Lake Park girls gymnastics sectional. Solka, a Cary-Grove student, had injured her back in practice early in the week and was listed as doubtful for Thursday. But Solka ended up saving the day for the Wolves. Prairie Ridge was down to three gymnasts for the final event, floor exercise. Solka stepped in and gutted out a clutch performance in taking 10th place with a 9.3, propelling the Wolves to their fourth consecutive sectional title with 149.25 points in Roselle. Without Solka, Prairie Ridge would have finished with 139.93 points and missed the state cut. Instead the Wolves joined Geneva, Lyons Township, and Glenbrook South as automatic qualifiers. Fremd (146.25), Barrington (144.275), and Prospect (144.075) finished 2-3-4 at Lake Park and join DeKalb/Sycamore as at-large team qualifiers to state.

  • Grant makes its point in regional triumph Feb 7, 2015 8:14 PM

  • Fremd completes another perfect West run Feb 7, 2015 1:00 AM
    Twenty six in a row. That’s the Mid-Suburban West winning streak the Fremd girls basketball team will carry into the 2015-16 season after completing a 10-0 run for the second straight season on Friday night. Haley Gorecki (18 points), Bryana Hopkins (13), Briana Lewis (12) and Julia Wacker (10) all reached double figures in the state-ranked Vikings’ 68-33 triumph over visiting Palatine. Fremd (22-4) has not lost a MSL West game since Schaumburg defeated the Vikings 46-37 three years ago.

     
  • Energetic Orr, Barrington pull away from Huntley Feb 7, 2015 9:11 PM
    Jake Orr is one of those blue-collar guys who will do anything the coach wants and the team needs. So this year, the spunky Barrington point guard went from starter to sixth man without a gripe. It’s worked out pretty well for everybody. “It’s best for the team,” he said Saturday night with a smile, after scoring 4 points and playing the kind of defense that has become Barrington’s trademark this season in a 61-45 nonconference win over a visiting Huntley team that played with an equal amount of energy. Barrington moved to 18-6, and while the Broncos start to focus on Fremd next week in a big Mid-Suburban West matchup, they have their long-term goals too. Orr believes they can go pretty far in the postseason. “We just have to play as a team,” he emphasized.
