The girls soccer team poses with the trophy after winning the Prospect Tournament on Sunday. The team went 4-0 in the tournament to capture the title.

Girls Soccer

The girls’ soccer team had the goal to bounce back this week after a three-game losing streak, and they sure did that.

It started on Tuesday with a big win over Lakes 3-0. The rest of the week kicked off on Friday as the team traveled to Prospect High School for their tournament. The team won their first two games on Friday, which put them in the semi-final on Saturday. The semi-final ended in a 2-1 final over the host Prospect, which put them in the championship against University High. The team then won the championship with a 2-0 shutout over U-High.

The team is now on a four-game win streak and will hope to continue that this week against Zion-Benton.

Baseball

The baseball team came into this week hot and scrapped together a couple of wins against Lake Forest and Palatine.

The week started against Lake Forest on Monday where the team fell 5-4 after a late score put the Scouts in the lead which would be the decider. The next day the Bears got a chance at revenge where they traveled to Lake Forest and won in an extra eighth inning 9-8 thanks to two home-runs by Tyler Snep, senior.

The next chapter of this week in baseball was a non-conference doubleheader versus Palatine. Game one saw a tight, low scoring matchup where the Bears fell 2-1. Game two was an entirely different story as it ended in a 16-5 victory as the team put up 17 hits, with Snep driving in five runs.

“So far, our season has started out great and our team has great chemistry between one another,” Anthony Mangano, junior, said. “We are expecting to win a state championship and I think if we fire on all cylinders, it is likely.”

The next week is a lighter one compared to past weeks as the team, now 8-4, will get set for a two-game series against Stevenson, and then they will face Schaumburg on Saturday.

Softball

A short week for the softball team adds a tally to both the win and loss columns in their two games.

Monday started off with a big win over rival Stevenson 10-8 as the team jumped out into the lead in the seventh inning. Tuesday was a different story as the team took a tough loss to Libertyville as the team just could not keep Libertyville from scoring in the second half of the game. The final score was 8-2 in favor of the Wildcats.

The team, now 7-7, now will get set to face off against Warren, Mundelein, and Vernon Hills on Saturday for a doubleheader.

Girls Lacrosse

The girls’ lacrosse may only have played one game this past week, but they sure made the most of it.

Their sole game of the week was when they hosted Warren on Wednesday. The game was a tight one, but the girls ended up pulling away, in the end, to win the game 14-13 over the Blue-Devils.

The team will now hope to ride that momentum into their games this week against Conant and Mundelein

Boys Volleyball

The boys’ volleyball team got back into action this week and they ended the week 1-1 after their two games.

The first game ended as a loss to Lake Forest 2-1, but then the team bounced back on Friday to defeat Evanston at home.

The team will now look ahead to matches against Palaine, Stevenson, and then the Palatine tournament this week.

Girls Track and Field

The girls track team continued their dominance over the North Suburban Conference this past week as the team competed both in duals and the Barrington Invite.

The week started off by hosting Warren and Stevenson, where the Bears defeated the Blue-Devils and Patriots by more than 20 points in each dual. The action continued to Barrington High School on Friday where frigid temperatures didn’t stop the girls. The team finished sixth out of the twelve teams competing, with Kelsey Rothas, junior, and Teagan Jones, junior, finishing tied for the victory in pole vault, and Izzy Klett, junior, with a second place finish in the long jump.

The team, now 4-0 in conference duals, will prepare for Mundelein and the Glenbard West Invitational this weekend.

Boys Track and Field

The boys’ track team had only one meet this week as they traveled to take on Warren and Stevenson at Warren on Monday.

The team ended up falling in both duals: 91-45 against Stevenson, and 87-44 against Warren. Notable results include a victory in the 1600 by Patrick Hart, junior, a victory by Jack Gilboy, sophomore, in the two mile race, and a victory by Marek Enters, senior, in the 300.

The team will now get set for the Bear Invite at home on Thursday as they host 11 other teams.

Boys Tennis

The boys’ tennis team got back into their own action this week as they took on Lake Forest and Zion-Benton.

The team ended up defeating Zion-Benton on Tuesday at home, but then fell to the scouts of Lake Forest at Home on Thursday.

The team will now get set for a very busy week as they will take on Palatine, Stevenson, Libertyville, and the Buffalo Grove Invite.
