  • Libertyville’s Gunther guns it, reaches state final Feb 20, 2015 11:03 PM
    Joey Gunther was a smashing success Friday. The Libertyville senior advanced to the 160-pound state wrestling final after outlasting Trace Carello of Marmion Academy in a marathon semifinal in Champaign. The top-seeded Gunther won 3-2 when he was awarded the 1-point winner as Carello (20-4) was unable to break away from an unyielding hold. “It’s wasn’t at all pretty, but as I said after my quarterfinal this morning, it’s not about style points down here,” said Gunther (36-1). Assured of a state medal, Gunther next tried to become the fourth state champ in Libertyville history. He’ll meet Matthew Rundell (32-3) of Oak Park-River Forest in the title bout on Day 3 of the state tournament.

  • Heartache for Conant’s Alexander Feb 21, 2015 12:56 AM
    Having gone into his state semifinal wrestling match on a record 41-match unbeaten streak, Conant senior Bobby Alexander started as the favorite — not only advance into the 138-pound final Saturday night, but to eventually secure a state championship for himself and coach Chad Hay. But sophomore Anthony Cheloni, the No. 4 seed, had ideas of his own. And when their six-minute bout was whistled over, it was Cheloni earning a spot in the Grand March at 5:30 p.m. Saturday to honor those who will compete for a state crown. Cheloni (34-11) delivered a 3-0 victory, sending the top-ranked Alexander to his first loss of the season.

  • 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.

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.
