  • Metea Valley’s 1-2 repeat feat Feb 28, 2015 10:35 PM
    When they called the final two names for athletes to receive their 100-yard breaststroke medals on Saturday at New Trier, the names that followed were the same as they’d been a year ago at the finals in Evanston — Metea Valley’s Matt Salerno and Jordan O’Brien.

  • Wiliams, Barson share fifth-place finales Feb 28, 2015 10:19 PM
    Every so often, an athlete is able to set a new standard at his school. In boys swimming, it happened over the same four-year period at both Elk Grove at Rolling Meadows. Those two programs share the same training facility, and they also ended up sharing some swimming greatness on Saturday. Seniors Colin Williams and Jake Barson concluded their separate but uniqely parallel paths with fifth-place finishes in their best races in Satuday’s boys swimming and diving championship at New Trier High School.

    Bittersweet was the operative word as the finals of the boys state swimming and diving meet concluded Saturday at New Trier. That primarily applied to all of the seniors. Included were Grayslake North’s Brenden Bolman and Libertyville’s Matt Harrington, both of whom are four-time state qualifiers who have plenty of swimming ahead of them. Bolman is heading to Missouri State in the fall, while Harrington is taking his talents to Princeton.

  • Mid-Suburban League lands three state swimming finalists Feb 27, 2015 11:07 PM
    Jake Barson had a steely, confident look atop the starting block seconds before hitting the pool in the 100-yard breaststroke at Friday’s boys swimming and diving state championships. He had this. And a mere 57.38 seconds later, he made it official. Barson broke his own school record in winning his preliminary heat en route to placing fourth overall and advancing to Saturday’s championship finals at New Trier. He was one of three Mid-Suburban League swimmers to finish in the top six, thereby earning a shot at a state title. The others were Elk Grove’s Colin Williams, who qualified fifth in the 100 butterfly (49.70) and Barrington’s Colin O’Leary, sixth in the 100 backstroke (51.17).

  • Wheaton North’s St. George elbows his way to state record Feb 27, 2015 11:35 PM

  • Bolman speaks volumes for Grayslake North Feb 27, 2015 11:36 PM
    Here’s a classic case of hoping word travels really fast. Chances are it will, and it’s largely due to the buzz that Grayslake North senior Brenden Bolman has helped create for the school’s swimming program. The Knights don’t have their own pool, nor do they have a full team. “I can’t wait until word gets back to our A.D. and the school,” Bolman said after qualifying for the finals in two events of the boys swimming and diving state finals held at New Trier High School on Friday. “I wish we had a team, but it’s still great to represent our school and make a name for Grayslake North. The support has been terrific.”

  • Cary-Grove’s Langanis continues to develop Feb 27, 2015 11:00 PM
    Cary-Grove junior Cooper Langanis certainly does not lack aggressiveness. In the preliminaries of the boys swimming and diving state meet, Langanis was competing in the longest race of the meet, the 500-yard freestyle. His first 100 yards of the race were completed in 51.10 seconds, the kind of speed that would make many a sprinter proud. The rest of the race didn’t go as well, but Langanis still came close to his seed time in a 25th-place finish (4:43.48). Earlier, Langanis also finished 25th in his other individual race, the 200 free.

  • Barson raises the bar at Rolling Meadows Feb 25, 2015 8:58 PM
    Jake Barson is the best swimmer Monika Chiappetta has coached in her 17 years on the job at Rolling Meadows. A state point-scorer last year in the 100-yard breaststroke, a two-time Mid-Suburban League champion in the same event and now, after a victory last weekend at Glenbrook North, a sectional champ as well. He’s a team record holder in two individual events and is also represented on the team record board on a pair of relays. As a team captain this year, Barson led Rolling Meadows to its first MSL divisional championship in 45 years. For all of that, what Chiappetta appreciates most about her standout senior has nothing whatsoever to do with his ability in the swimming pool.

  • Down to the details, Elk Grove’s Williams preps for state meet Feb 24, 2015 8:15 PM
    For Elk Grove’s Colin Williams, the details matter. After excelling in last weekend’s sectional meet at Glenbrook North, Williams arrived for an afternoon practice at his home pool in advance of this weekend’s state meet preliminaries. As he strolled into the pool office, coach Keith Kura was about to tell him where he’d be seeded in his top event, the 100-yard butterfly, in this weekend’s state swimming meet at New Trier. Turns out his senior standout had already thoroughly researched the topic online. “He looks at me and goes, ‘Second, right?’ ” said Kura. “I’m like, ‘Yep — second.’ I should have know he’d know.” That’s right — Williams’ qualifying effort of 49.91 was the second-fastest in Illinois.
