  • Big breakthrough for Vernon Hills Feb 21, 2015 10:19 PM
    From hugs to heartbreak, the gamut of emotions were on their usual display Saturday afternoon in the Vernon Hills boys swimming sectional meet. As far as the hugs, there were plenty to go around, especially after Vernon Hills’ junior Brian Rabinowitz had just finished second in the 100-yard backstroke and qualified for next weekend’s state meet at New Trier. “I just missed in the previous three events today, but this definitely makes up for it,” said Rabinowitz, who swam a 53.50. “It feels great to finally end the drought. I was a little worried coming in, but I just trusted my training. I’d love to get a 53 or lower (at state).” The drought Rabinowitz mentioned refers to a four-year absence since Vernon Hills has had a state qualifier in boys swimming.

    How did the Mid-Suburban East’s top boys swimming teams stack up at the Glenbrook North sectional on Saturday afternoon? In historically strong fashion, that’s how. With winners in 5 of the 8 individual swimming events, those East teams showed they certainly belonged in a field led by meet champion New Trier (287 points) and Glenbrook North (181.5). Rolling Meadows added to its memorable season by finishing third with 157 points, 1 point better than Loyola, and breaking all kinds of new ground along the way.

  • Koto, Stevenson take winning position in NSC Feb 14, 2015 9:17 PM
    He was understandably a little tired after having just competed in the 200-yard freestyle, and then the 500 freestyle a few events later. Upon reflection, though, it’s definitely a position Stevenson senior boys swimming team co-captain Nick Koto has no issues with. “Yeah, a bit tired but I swam good swims,” said Koto, who posted season-best times in finishing second in both the 200 free (1:43.88) and 500 free (4:45.65). Koto also had a season-best split time of 22.26 when he anchored the 200 free relay, which also finished second. There, he joined forces with Alex Kapecki, Viktor Makarskyy and Dimitriy Pelutis. Koto’s performance was one of many good ones by the Patriots, who edged out Lake Forest for a sixth NSC title in seven years. The Pats collected 337 points, while the runner-up Scouts tallied 317.

  • 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.
