    So how did Stevenson water polo teammates Allison Travetto and Lauren Burns celebrate their team’s third-place state finish? They hopped on a plane and headed to California. Sounds like plan. But what were they up to on this ride across the country? “They are both on the national development team for water polo,” said Stevenson coach Jeff Wimer. “They needed to catch the 7:40 (p.m.) plane so they had to go to the airport.” But what about Ms. Travetto? She scored a stunning 6 goals Saturday evening in the final match of the season for the Patriots, who were competing in their home pool. In fact, that was one more goal than foe Mother McAuley scored all day long. Stevenson (31-5) went home with the third-place trophy after a convincing 9-5 win.

  • Proven Palatine turns back fired-up Fremd May 17, 2014 6:10 PM
    Top-seeded Palatine seemingly had it all under control, leading 11-7 against Fremd after three quarters in the championship game of the boys water polo sectional hosted by the Pirates. The Vikings, seeded No. 6, did everything it could to spring another upset with a concerted fourth-quarter surge, but in the end Palatine’s experience held sway in a 12-10 decision. The Pirates earned a second trip to state under coach Joe Grzybek, but the most recent one was back in 2006. In the intervening years, there’ve been consistently strong teams and conference championships — but also a series of heartbreaking losses in sectional semifinals and finals. “It’s nice to have a different outcome, the one we were looking for,” said Grzybek. “Everyone has their own battle — teams tend to get stuck at a certain level. For us, we’ve been able to make a lot of sectional finals, so that’s been our challenge, to get through.”

With eight seconds left in the game, the Huskies were called for a foul inside of the 5-meter line. Naperville Central’s Jessica Fox made good on the shot to tie the game at 8. Overtime loomed.
