Girls Lacrosse

The girl’s lacrosse team kicked off their 2018-2019 season on Wednesday at home.

Unfortunately, the team fell to Deerfield by a final score of 17-11 on home turf but will look ahead to upcoming games in order to bounce back.

Girls Soccer

The girls’ soccer team was looking to start their season with a victory on Tuesday at Cary-Grove.

The team wasn’t quite able to escape with the win, but they walked out of Cary-Grove with a 1-1 tie. They then looked to get their first win of the season at Fremd on Thursday, but a good Fremd team handed the Bears their first loss of the year.

The team will now look to bounce back on Tuesday at home versus Jacobs and at home Wednesday versus McHenry. They will look to use the time before these games preparing on the field and off with each other, which will hopefully enhance their play on the field, according to Tess Vages, sophomore.

“You need to connect with your teammates because that is one of the keys to playing well. If we know each other more,  the playing on the field will be taken to a new level,” Vages said.

Boys Lacrosse

The boys’ lacrosse season started in dominant fashion on Thursday at home.

The team dominated Conant on home turf by putting up a defensive masterpiece in a 21-1 victory.

Now the team will look to carry this momentum forward by facing Deerfield at Deerfield on Monday.

Girls Track and Field

Another big week for the girls track and field team ends with an incredible second place finish at the Lake Michigan Invite at Carthage College.

Out of the 31 teams in attendance, Bears took home victories in two events. Izzy Klett, junior, won the long jump, and Kelsey Rothas, junior, won the pole vault. Other notable finishes include second in the 400 meters by Sydney Mark, senior, and second in the 4×800 by Emily Burns, senior, Kristen Loftus, freshman, Jillian Baffa, senior, and Hayley Burk, sophomore.

The team now will prepare to start their outdoor season after spring break on April 2 at Waukegan.

Boys Track and Field

After a week off from competition, the boys’ track team was back at it again at the Huntley Last Chance Meet on Saturday.

At the 14 team meet, there was one event that the Bears seemed to dominate, which was the 3200-meter run. Jack Gilboy, sophomore, won the event, followed by Patrick Hart, junior, and Jack Mason, sophomore, who each placed in the top six. Other notable finishes include Caleb Engelmann, junior, with a fourth-place finish in the high jump, as well as Tyler Remez, junior, with sixth in the triple jump.

The team will now have until after spring break to prepare to start their outdoor season at home on April 2.
