  • Magical afternoon for MSL East at Glenbrook North Feb 21, 2015 7:47 PM
    How did the Mid-Suburban East’s top boys swimming teams stack up at the Glenbrook North sectional on Saturday afternoon? In historically strong fashion, that’s how. With winners in 5 of the 8 individual swimming events, those East teams showed they certainly belonged in a field led by meet champion New Trier (287 points) and Glenbrook North (181.5). Rolling Meadows added to its memorable season by finishing third with 157 points, 1 point better than Loyola, and breaking all kinds of new ground along the way. Rolling Meadows, Prospect, Hersey and Elk Grove each had event winners, and Wheeling advanced a pair of relays to next weekend's state meet.

     
  • 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.

  • Hersey turns back Wheeling’s spirited charge Feb 19, 2015 11:11 PM
    Wheeling’s girls basketball team came in believing. And in the fourth quarter, as they chipped away at a 15-point deficit, the No. 6-seeded Wildcats had about everyone else believing. Third-seeded Hersey saw its lead shrink to 2 points with 26 seconds left when Wheeling’s Deanna Kuzmanic completed a 3-point play to make it 54-52. But as they have nearly all season, the Huskies rose to the occasion on Thursday night. Sophomore Claire Gritt (team-high 24 points) and junior Maggie Berigan (9 points) each converted a pair of pressure free throws to hold off their Mid-Suburban East rivals 58-52 in the championship game of the Class 4A Grayslake Central regional.

  • Kuzmanic, Wheeling stop Warren Feb 17, 2015 11:11 PM
    As Warren coach John Stanczykiewicz stood in Grayslake Central’s near-empty gym, he heard laughter from his girls basketball players coming from the hallway as they exited the building. Never mind that Wheeling’s experienced squad had just beaten Warren’s young Blue Devils 53-39 in a Class 4A regional semifinal. “Listen to them,” said Stanczykiewicz, grinning. “That’s the beauty of this team. They’re just so much fun and they’re together.” Something else Stanczykiewicz appreciated Tuesday night? The final game of Deanna Kuzmanic’s career, at least against his team. “You know what the great thing about Deanna Kuzmanic is?” Stanczykiewicz said after the senior guard rang up a game-high 20 points, 6 assists and 4 steals. “There’s no drama there. There’s no attitude. There’s no ‘Hey, look at me.’ There’s no grandstanding. She takes her knocks — she takes her physical play. You don’t see her crying. “To me,” Stanczykiewicz added, “that’s the beauty of Deanna Kuzmanic. I hope that’s what kids watch, too. It’s not just the skill set. It’s the attitude. If you’re going to lose, you don’t mind losing to people like that.”

    Schaumburg coach Mark Kelly said his team saved what he called “our most consistent performance of the season” for the perfect time. Led by a 6-game series of 1320 from junior Jessica Halas, the second-best individual performance of the day, the Saxons won Saturday’s Rolling Meadows girls bowling sectional to move on to next weekend’s state finals. Schaumburg posted a total pinfall of 5841, while Mid-Suburban League rivals Hersey (5758) and Hoffman Estates (5710) also qualified for a trip to Rockford’s Cherry Bowl Lanes, where the state tourney is held.

     
  • Wheeling’s Zuunbayan, Barrington’s Smith secure sectional titles Feb 14, 2015 11:01 PM
    Tulga Zuunbayan and Julius Smith shut the door on their wrestling opponents all weekend long, including late Saturday as the Mid-Suburban League pair closed out their rivals to celebrate Class 3A sectional championships when the action came to an end in the fieldhouse at Barrington. Zuunbayan allowed for the possibility of still bigger and better things ahead as the Wheeling junior delivered a dazzling six-minute effort in his 152-pound final against DJ Penick of Highland Park to earn his first sectional title. That netted Zuubayan a third consecutive trip downstate. Smith, meanwhile, won a memorable championship during the final home match of his career, sending the Broncos standout to Champaign for a second time.

     
  • Gold-medal efforts at Barrington Feb 14, 2015 9:00 PM
    The wide array of sports being contested at Barrington High School on Saturday almost gave the campus the feel you’d find at a Olympic-style winter sports festival. Wrestling over here, basketball over there — and down this hallway, the Mid-Suburban League boys swimming and diving championships. And in the pool, the host Broncos ended up celebrating a successful defense of their MSL team title, emerging on top in a finish that was much more tightly grouped than usual. Barrington won with 233 points, followed closely by Fremd (218). Rolling Meadows (183) turned in its highest-ever finish in third place, with Palatine (169) taking a big jump up as well to fourth.
