  • Basketball mourns coaching losses, but their lessons will endure Feb 12, 2015 5:41 PM
    Two college coaching giants died this week, Dean Smith and Jerry Tarkanian. Their influence on the game of basketball and other coaches is widespread. In that vein, Patricia Babcock McGraw polled boys coaches in the Daily Herald's Lake County coverage area about their biggest influences in coaching.

  • Rappe, Carmel snap skid against Deerfield Feb 10, 2015 11:10 PM

  • Vernon Hills adds record season Feb 10, 2015 11:11 PM
    Robby Nardini had 19 points (three 3-pointers) and 4 steals, and Bo Manso dished out 16 assists, as Vernon Hills’ boys basketball added to its school-record win total by cruising past visiting Chicagoland Jewish 87-23 in a nonconference game Tuesday night.

  • Mundelein’s Kehr comes through, wins parallel bars Feb 9, 2015 11:14 PM
    McKenzie Kehr had a painful memory from a year ago, one that spoiled her chance at a spot in the state meet. The Mundelein senior wasn’t going to let history repeat in Monday night’s Mundelein girls gymnastics sectional. So, Kehr, as the final performer on the uneven parallel bars, chalked up the best routine of the meet, a 9.45 that qualified her to the state meet at Palatine on Feb. 20. “I really didn’t want a repeat of last year,” Kehr said. “I just gave it my all. I actually tore my fingernail off in the middle of it and kind of stopped. This time, I was luckier. I was just pumped up with the team and wanted to make it there (to state), with the team.” Kehr was the runner-up in the all-around at 37.325 in addition to taking second on vault (9.55) and fifth on beam (8.925). As a team, Mundelein will have to wait and see if it will quality to state with an at-large berth, as the Mustangs finished behind sectional champion Glenbrook South (142.625). Mundelein (141.325) was second and Carmel Catholic third (141.125).

  • Wrestling: Deerfield edges out short-handed Stevenson Feb 7, 2015 9:33 PM
    Host Stevenson gave it the old college try, but unfortunately for the Patriots they fell just short of the mark Saturday at their own Class 3A wrestling regional. In the end, being without its full lineup proved to spell trouble for Stevenson as a very strong Deerfield squad held off a late comeback attempt by the Patriots to capture the regional championship, 184.5 to 177.5. Libertyville looked very good with a third-place score of 149.5 points; the Wildcats will be sending eight wrestlers to the individual sectional at Barrington next weekend.

  • Warren bounces Lake Zurich Feb 7, 2015 10:53 PM
    The close calls are too many to count, as far as Warren coach Ryan Webber is concerned. But he and the rest of the Blue Devils boys basketball team figured that a close one would eventually bounce in their favor. On Saturday night in a North Suburban Lake Division contest with visiting Lake Zurich, the ball bounced the way of the Devils on more than one occasion. Of course, it certainly helps when senior Jovan Jokic and junior Maurice Chambers have the type of nights that they had. Jokic was virtually automatic from long range, hitting 4 in a game-best 21-point performance, and Chambers tallied 11 points as Warren hung on to defeat Lake Zurich 49-46.

  • Novak, Warren savoring this sectional trip Feb 7, 2015 10:42 PM
    Rolling right along, there’s Warren coach Rich Novak. He’s been coaching in the Blue Devils girls bowling program for the last 20 years, the last 10 as head coach. But all rolls must end eventually, which means Novak will especially enjoy this season and one last trip to the sectional round. Novak’s squad was one of four to advanced from the Warren regional at Bertrand Lanes on Saturday. “Getting to the sectional was one of our goals,” Novak said. “They all stayed together and worked together through everything.” Novak will retire after this school year. He’s looking forward to a bright future, both for the Warren program and himself. “Retiring is hard to do,” he said, “but I know it’s time to get younger people out here — and I want to do some traveling.”

  • Girls basketball / Lake County roundup Feb 7, 2015 10:59 PM
    Freshman Jordyn Hughes had a game-high 19 points and 5 rebounds, as Warren’s girls basketball team rallied to beat visiting Lake Zurich 48-36 in the two teams’ North Suburban Lake Division finale Saturday night. Sammi Jo Nixon and Kylie Nedelka added 9 points apiece for Warren (11-15, 4-8), which won for the fifth time in its last six games. The Blue Devils won their last three NSC Lake games.

  • Strong Prairie finish for Firnbach, Vernon Hills Feb 6, 2015 11:56 PM
    Kasey Firnbach had 20 points, 10 rebounds and 3 assists, and Vernon Hills’ girls basketball team beat Grant 69-47 Friday night to reach the 20-win mark for the fourth season in a row. Mia Polisky added 13 points and 4 assists for the Cougars (20-6), who completed play in the North Suburban Prairie Division with a 9-3 record. Katie Brettmann contributed 8 points and 5 rebounds, and Haley Lieberman had 7 points and 5 assists. Becky Bahlmann also had 8 points.

  • Warren grows weary of near misses Feb 5, 2015 4:30 PM
    Getting close just isn’t cutting it anymore for the Warren boys basketball team. The Blue Devils (8-12, 2-6 North Suburban Lake) are getting tired of competing with some of the best teams in the state, even pushing them to the brink, and then falling short. In a total of five games against Zion-Benton, Lake Forest and Stevenson, three of the top teams in Class 4A, Warren has lost all five games by a combined 31 points, or about 6 points per game. The Blue Devils’ two losses to Zion-Benton have been by 4 and 3 points, respectively. A loss to Lake Forest last month was by 3 points. On Tuesday at Lake Forest, Warren was down just 1 point at halftime and by just 3 points with three minutes remaining before falling 46-34.

  • Warren’s Falish gets it right for senior year — and beyond Feb 5, 2015 4:25 PM
    Warren guard Jake Falish was tortured last year when he decided not to play basketball so that he could spend more time working on baseball. He regretted his decision right away and struggled to watch his teammates play on without him last winter. He returned to the hardwood this season with modest expectations and instead has blown the roof off at Warren. He's the team's leading scorer (20 ppg) and is one of the top 3-point shooters in the area. Oh yeah, and he's going to play sports (yes, plural) in college, where he won't be forced to choose between baseball and basketball.

  • Warren’s Reams, Turner see their college football dreams come true Feb 4, 2015 9:22 PM
    Best friends since they were in kindergarten together, Caleb Reams and Nick Turner shared their dreams with each other as they prepared to enter high school four years ago. Football players who “pretty much dominated everybody in sports,” Turner said with a smile, they dreamed big. At Warren, the pair of thick-chested, athletic boys kept up their domination. And Wednesday, their talents and efforts were rewarded. On national signing day for high school football players, Reams, a 6-foot-3 tight end, signed with Illinois, while Turner, a 6-1 linebacker, inked with Valparaiso University (Division I FCS). “All we’ve talked about since eighth grade is this day,” Turner said.

  • Shanahan, Mundelein claim regional championship Feb 3, 2015 10:58 PM
    Taylor Shanahan is finding out that being on Mundelein’s girls gymnastics team was a good move to make in her sophomore year after spending the previous year as a Mustangs cheerleader. She still gets to cheer a bit — for her team, as it’s been concentrating on taking a successful next step in the state series. For the second straight year, Mundelein is a regional champion. The Mustangs scored 142.275 to edge Warren (121.1) i nthe regional hosted by Mundelein on Tuesday. Niles West finished at 134.2 and Evanston 124.6.

  • Lake Forest adjusts, gets past Warren Feb 3, 2015 11:05 PM
    One minor adjustment here, and a small tweak there made a big difference for Lake Forest on Tuesday night. The Scouts changed up just a few things about their game plan at halftime and were able to turn a slim 1-point lead into a double-figure, 46-34 North Suburban Conference boys basketball victory over visiting Warren. Lake Forest moves to 21-1 on the season and 9-1 in NSC Lake Division play.

  • Stevenson edges Grant for first NSC title Jan 31, 2015 8:45 PM
    A new rivalry was born Saturday in the 60th annual North Suburban Conference wrestling meet. Upstart Stevenson and perennial power Grant went toe to toe the entire weekend at Warren, before the Patriots ultimately won their first NSC championship by the slimmest of margins, 225.5 to 225.0, over the Bulldogs. “I don’t think there has ever been a tournament that defines team effort more than this tournament did for us,” Stevenson coach Shane Cook said. “It took all 14 guys working together. We knew how strong Grant’s guys were at certain weights, and we knew every match mattered.”

  • Girls gymnastics: Mundelein wins North Suburban meet Jan 30, 2015 11:29 PM
    There’ve been a lot of firsts around the Mundelein girls gymnastics team over the last few years. This season, Mundelein coach Nancy Toland has been trying to enjoy all the achievement from a unique perspective, as it looks like it might be her last season with the Mustangs after 15 years in charge. Most recently, she has seen her team produce a season-best 143.1 score in the North Suburban Conference meet in Mundelein on Friday night. That fine effort earned the Mustangs a share of the NSC title with Warren (the Blue Devils won the dual meet portion of the schedule). Warren was second on Friday at 142.1 and Stevenson was third at 133.05 in the six-team field.
