  • Defending champ Prospect likes where it’s headed Oct 16, 2014 4:56 PM
    As the girls golf season wound down, Prospect coach Jim Hamann made a particular comment more than once. “We are excited about the direction we are going,” he has said while watching continuous improvement from his players in the final month. The Knights also know the directions quite well to the city where they’ll swing their clubs this weekend. For the fifth straight year, they have arrived in Decatur for the Class AA state finals.

     
  • Hersey’s program perfect against MSL East Oct 17, 2014 12:03 AM
    Hersey’s streak of 12 straight Mid-Suburban League East girls volleyball championships is quite the feat. The Huskies program added another rare accomplishment on Thursday. With its freshman and sophomore teams pulling out three-set wins at Rolling Meadows on Thursday, all levels combined for a 50-0 record this fall. The varsity squad completed its 10-0 run with a 25-12, 25-15 triumph as Liz Fuerst put down a match-high 12 kills.

     
  • Zahn, Palatine edge out Conant Oct 17, 2014 12:02 AM
    Senior year got here early for Palatine’s Lily Zahn. Though in just her third season as a key member of the Pirates’ girls swimming and diving team, Zahn in is her last year of high school competition. She’ll graduate early in pursuit of greater classroom challenges in advance of a promising collegiate future. “I love having Lily,” said Palatine coach Brittany Berleman, “because she shows that you can do it well, athletically and academically, at the same time.” The athleticism was on display during Palatine’s senior night, as the Pirates wrapped up their Mid-Suburban League duals with a 98-88 victory against visiting Conant.

  • Krzysko quickly a hit in Arkansas’ lineup Oct 15, 2014 1:56 PM
    It was less than two years ago when area softball fans were watching one of the all-time best displays of home run hitting. Loren Krzysko became Barrington’s all-time home run hitter in the spring of 2012 when the 2012 Daily Herald all-area honorary softball captain belted a school-record 18 and finished her career with 42. Both numbers rank No. 9 on the all-time IHSA list.Krzysko is now a redshirt freshman for Arkansas, which opened its fall softball season 10 days ago. Guess her hit the first homer of the season for the Razorbacks? In the second game of a doubleheader with Oklahoma State, Krzysko had 4 hits including a homer as the Razorbacks won 14-5 to gain a split with the Razorbacks.

  • Prospect extends downstate reign Oct 14, 2014 9:44 PM
    The rain would not stop at Bittersweet Golf Club in Gurnee on Tuesday. Neither would Prospect’s streak of trips to the Class AA state finals at the Hickory Point Golf Course in Decatur.

Four teams were unable to finish their rounds on Monday due to the rain.They took the course in the same wet conditions on Tuesday. When the scores were finally completed, Prospect’s 330 was good for second place behind champion New Trier (323).

  • Prospect likes its downstate prospects Oct 13, 2014 9:39 PM
    All the work and practices Prospect coach Jim Hamann put his girls golf team through this fall were geared toward seeing his players enjoying their best golf at the end of the season. With that in mind, the Knights sure must have made their coach proud on Tuesday at Bittersweet Golf Club in Gurnee. They produced their best team score of the season (330) in some of the toughest conditions of the fall. With many golfers still having to finish their rounds due to rainy weather suspending play late in the afternoon, all of the results of the Warren Class AA sectional are still unofficial and not yet reported to the IHSA. Coaches will be alerted early in the morning if play will resume at noon Tuesday. If conditions are still unsuitable, Wednesday would be the finishing day. Yet to finish their team scores are Barrington, Loyola, Libertyville and Crystal Lake Central.

     
  • Lim, Barrington soak up a state-qualifying success Oct 13, 2014 8:26 PM
    Timothy Lim wasn’t alone in having to deal with the rainy, foggy and wet conditions as the day went on Monday in the Class 3A Lake Forest boys golf sectional. But it sure didn’t seem to affect him as much. The Barrington sophomore used a steady approach to get past the weather conditions and card an even-par 72 on the 6,589-yard course at Lake Bluff. Lim’s effort helped Barrington shoot 299 for the second straight time as the Broncos earned a spot in the Class 3A state touranment. They finished second, behind Lake Forest (293) and ahead of St. Charles East (306) — or at least it looks that way, pending the official conclusion of the sectional now scheduled for Tuesday.

     
  • Barrington scores an MSL title, with Hersey close behind Oct 11, 2014 6:41 PM
    Although it was one of the closest team scores in years, Barrington still was able to net a 20th consecutive Mid-Suburban League girls tennis championship, posting 53 points at Schaumburg on Saturday afternoon to complete the three-day tournament. Hersey followed with 46 points for second place, and Fremd was third with 38, just ahead of Buffalo Grove (36).

     
  • Loyola backs it up at Barrington Oct 11, 2014 6:28 PM
    How good was the competition on Saturday in the Barrington Invitational? Well, many expect Loyola Academy to have a great chance at winning a girls swimming and diving state championship next month, and the most recent results provided no reason to think otherwise. Loyola, which was without senior standout Grace Tierney and also one of its top divers, still managed to take top honors in the seven-team field with 370.5 points. The host Fillies would be thrilled to take one of the top three places at state, so this setting provided a great opportunity for them to see how they measured up. Barrington finished second with 317 points, well ahead of third-place Lyons Township (257) and fourth-place York (218.5). Barrington coach Jim Bart was pleased — at least in the final analysis. “I felt like we were a little bit soft at the start of the meet,” he said. “But after the 50 free, we had a little talk, and I thought we had a pretty nice back half. “Any time you can compete against a team like Loyola, it will help you. It took us a while, but we adjusted well.” Without question, the Ramblers have the finest assembly of backstrokers in the state. Libby Jardeleza broke the pool record by winning that event in 57.47, and teammate Jamie Kolar was second in 58.41. At the JV level, Loyola’s Shannon Kearney won in 58.74, and Margaret Guanci was second in 59.32. That’s right — Loyola has four sub-four-minute 100 backstrokers. “We knew what to expect,” said Barringon senior Emma Barnett, who led the Fillies in the backstroke with a third-place finish in 1:00.98. “They gave us the challenge we needed. “I think it took us a little while to get going, but I think we learned a little bit about ourselves.” The 500 freestyle was certainly a highlight for Barrington, as Kirsten Jacobsen won in 4:56.14 and Maggie Emary was third in 5:06.49. And in the JV 500 free, Maggie Menso won in 5:12.68 and Evelyn Ciskowski was third in 5:31.07. Those are four performers many varsity programs would be happy to have as their No. 1 in the event, and each turned in season-best times on Saturday. Jacobsen, the defending state champ in the 200 and 500 freestyles, also won the 200 free (1:52.25), and Barrington senior Andrea Vega won both the 200 IM (2:11.61) and 100 breast (1:07.02). Barrington had strong efforts in both freestyle relays, but finished second to Loyola in both. The Ramblers gained a huge points advantage in the first event, splitting their talent evenly between two medley relays that both bested Barrington’s top group. As for how this season will turn out for Loyola, well, coach Mike Hengelmann is more than willing to see it unfold at its own pace. “For us, it’s one day at a time, one meet at a time,” he said. “That’s just the only approach that makes any sense to me. “We love swimming here. Jim Bart runs a great program, and any time you have a state champion like Jacobsen to race against, it just makes it a little bit more special.” Other top efforts for the Ramblers came from Olivia Andrew, who was second in the 200 free (1:53.87) and won the 100 free (53.83); Maria Kyle, who won the 100 fly (59.50); and Claire Rushin, who won the 50 free (25.16). Schaumburg finished sixth in the team standings and got a third-place finish from diver Caiti Poland (342.25, 11 dives). The Saxons’ top swimming finish came from freshman Ingrid Hay in the 100 back (ninth, 1:06.18).

     
  • Miller thrills as Barrington rolls again Oct 10, 2014 11:32 PM
    Barrington receiver Scotty Miller had the kind of game Friday night that most players can only dream of. The senior hit pay dirt on three long scoring plays in the first half, and his effort helped lead the visiting Broncos to a 55-14 Mid-Suburban West win over Hoffman Estates. Miller caught a 38-yard touchdown toss from Johnny Davidson in the first quarter, then added a 61-yard TD catch plus a 59-yard scoring run in the second stanza to set the tone for what turned out to be a relentless offensive attack from Barrington (7-0, 3-0).

Senior Oyinkan Akinola put down 8 kills for the Saxons while Mallory Gerber and Lexi Ross each added 3.

  • Prospect passes key test against Hersey as Liva soars Oct 9, 2014 10:19 PM
    Last season, Prospect ended Hersey’s six-year string of girls swimming and diving championships in the Mid-Suburban East. This fall, it looks like Prospect has started a streak of its own. On senior night for the Knights at Wheeling’s pool, Prospect used a 1-2-3 finish in the 100-yard backstroke to pull away from Hersey 101-85 in the matchup pitting the top two teams in the MSL East. Prospect still needs a victory against Wheeling next week for an outright championship, but the toughest obstacle to repeat has been cleared — and in breathtaking fashion. Knights senior diver Dana Liva made sure of that, hitting all six of her dives on the way to breaking her own team and pool records with a 311.65 score. The lowest score the Wisconsin-bound standout received on any dive was a 6. She was awarded nothing below an 8 on her first dive, a back dive in the pike position.

     
  • Sulkar, Barrington lead the way in Lake Forest regional Oct 8, 2014 10:16 PM
    There was plenty of drama at Wednesday’s conclusion of the Lake Forest regional at Deerpath Golf Club in Lake Forest. When the final scores were entered in the clubhouse, the Fillies were one stroke better than Deerfield (359 to 360) to win their 15th title in 28 seasons under Hall of Fame girls golf coach Jodi Schoeck.“It was thrilling when we realized that we had won it,” Schoeck said. “When we saw the scoreboard was completed, it was a sigh of relief because we were not sure what was going to happen.”

     
  • Dist. 220 to buy 33 acres near Barrington High Oct 8, 2014 9:27 PM
    The Barrington Area Unit School District 220 board entered into a contract this week to acquire more than 33 acres across Hart Road from Barrington High School. District officials say they have no immediate plans for the site, which is costing $2.35 million. “Such (real estate) needs did not appear in the budget approved last month, and that budget was characterized as challenging and tight,” one opponent said.
