    With only three seniors on her roster, Hoffman Estates softball coach Lindsey Hamma has one of her younger teams in 10 seasons. But that hasn’t stopped the youthful Hawks from starting out 2-0. Victory No. 2 came on Saturday and it took only five innings, thanks to senior second baseman Caitlyn Farina’s one-out 2-run walk-off homer in the bottom of the fifth inning.

  • Barrington’s Tenyer turns it up for 17th place Feb 21, 2015 8:12 PM
    As the song says, what a difference a day makes. Or in the case of Sarah Tenyer, a day and half to be exact. The Barrington sophomore, who admitted that she had a “little bit of nerves” on her first trip to the girls bowling state tournament in Rockford, started slowly Friday with a morning 3-game series of 561. That score her saw languishing near the bottom of the pack of competitors at Cherry Bowl Lanes. Then came a stellar afternoon session Friday — and an even bigger day Saturday. Beginning Friday afternoon and continuing through the tournament finale, Tenyer, the Mid-Suburban League champion, posted series marks of 687-700-644 en route to a 17th-place overall finish.

  • Willowbrook wins first conference title since 1972 Feb 21, 2015 2:51 AM
    It seemed as if Willowbrook’s boys basketball players needed to let the moment sink in, which is understandable. None of them were alive the last time the Warriors won a conference championship. Some of their coaches weren’t, either. When history finally did hit the players after Friday’s 67-62 victory over visiting Leyden, they sprinted to their massive student section and started the celebration.

  • On her own, Leyden’s Kriston rolling right along Feb 20, 2015 7:42 PM
    Ashley Kriston is getting to be a familiar face at Cherry Bowl Lanes. The Leyden senior has competed at the state bowling tournament in Rockford each of her four prep seasons, and now she’s poised for her best finish ever. Kriston rolled games of 267 and 248 Friday enroute to a 6-game pinfall of 1365, which places her third overall entering Saturday’s final session. Her afternoon 739 was the top 3-game series of the day.

  • Standout efforts from Stevenson, Barrington’s Tenyer Feb 7, 2015 7:51 PM
    Stevenson senior Sam Szura, a competitor since her freshman season, called her four seasons of participation in varsity girls bowling “a real trip.” “We started at the bottom and worked our way up, that’s for sure,” said Szura. “That’s why I’m so ecstatic right now. I’m crying.” The tears that Szura and her teammates were shedding Saturday were tears of joy as the Patriots surprised by winning the Palatine Regional at Brunswick Zone in Deer Park. “We expected to advance,” said Szura, “but we never expected to win the regional. I was nervous all day — I’m kind of a worry-wart — but in the end we were able to pull through, and I’m thrilled that we did.” Stevenson’s pinfall of 5,515 was a whopping 120 pins better than second-place Hoffman Estates (5,358), and both teams will advance to Saturday’s sectional tourney hosted by Rolling Meadows. Schaumburg (5,308) and Lake Zurich (5,288) will also move on to the sectional meet to be held at Brunswick in Mount Prospect, while the magical season of Barrington sophomore Sarah Tenyer continued in earnest. Just a week after winning Mid-Suburban League honors, Tenyer won medalist bragging rights at Deer Park with a 6-game total of 1,302 pins, including games of 246 and 235.

  • Fremd completes another perfect West run Feb 7, 2015 1:00 AM
    Twenty six in a row.

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.

  • Leyden defeats Addison Trail in overtime Feb 6, 2015 11:30 PM

  • Milestone and clincher for Gorecki, Fremd Feb 4, 2015 12:37 AM
    Haley Gorecki scored 15 points and became only the second player in Fremd girls basketball history to reach 2,000 points on Tuesday night when the state-ranked Vikings rolled past visiting Hoffman Estates 74-30. The Vikings also clinched their sixth straight Mid-Suburban League title under coach Dave Yates. They will play for the MSL crown a week from Wednesday at either Prospect or Hersey. Gorecki’s 2000th point came on a layup late in the second quarter.

    In describing his team’s 68-40 win over visiting Leyden on Tuesday night, Schaumburg girls basketball coach Curtis Goodwin said his Saxons got off to a slow start and then picked up their energy. He could have been describing the overall season. After beginning 4-7, the surging Saxons have won six of their last eight games and three straight to climb above .500 at 10-9.

  • Conant takes command at Leyden Jan 10, 2015 9:15 PM
    By the time it was Bobby Alexander’s turn in the spotlight, the Conant star had already watched a trio of teammates before him seal the Cougars’ fourth consecutive Leyden Invite crown, allowing the standout 138-pounder to focus solely on winning his own fourth straight title as well. And after Alexander’s strong performance over Mousa Jodeh of Oak Forest, the Cougars had built an insurmountable 50-point lead over the powerful Class 2A Oak Forest contingent before running up the final score with three more individual titles to lift the crown going away with 262.5 points.
