KHS tops H-BR

in Volleyball by

Kaneland—The Lady Knights volleyball team improved its record to 5-2 with a Tuesday win over Hinckley-Big Rock.

Kaneland won in straight games, 25-13, 25-11, and set a season record with nine aces.

“We did a great job of being aggressive at the net, along with solid D from the whole team,” head coach Todd Weimer said.

Elize Dunn led the team in kills with 11, to go along with one ace and four digs. Jenny Lubic collected 22 assists to lead the team by far, in addition to two aces and five digs. Lyndi Scholl added four kills and an ace, Lauren Banbury tallied six kills and two aces, Ashley Prost contributed with three kills, one ace and nine digs, and Rachel Clinton and Shayna Tucek combined for 11 digs to help lead the way.

The Lady Knights next travel to Streator for a Thursday, Sept. 6, contest.

KHS has just 1 loss through 6 contest
by Mike Slodki
KANELAND—It looks like the Knights soccer team is an expert in playing close matches.

Outside of being on the wrong end of a rout in one match-up at Jacobs High School, the Kaneland group has made a living off of tight affairs.

It was no different this past week, as KHS traveled to Hinckley to take on the host H-BR Royals in a 2-1 win on Friday.

That was preceded by a 1-1 tie against visiting Geneva on Thursday.

Kaneland now sits at 3-1-2 on the year.

KHS and H-BR scored their goals in the first half. The two Knight goals came as a result of two Arsim Azemi corner kicks, finished by Ivan Bohorquez with 14:19 left in the first half, and 47 seconds later off the foot of Anthony Parillo.

The junior varsity crew enjoyed a 3-1 win over its Royal counterparts to cap the action.

Kaneland managed to tie Geneva, a school which has never lost to Kaneland but had begun the season with three straight losses.

After falling behind 1-0 early, a Kushstrim Ismaili rocket to the net on an assist from Sam Rymarz tied matters with 7:46 remaining in the first half.

Geneva had a real chance to find the lead until goalkeeper Marshall Farthing of Kaneland stonewalled a penalty kick attempt with 25 minutes remaining.

“When it goes down, you’ve got to get your mind into the zone,” Farthing said. “That’ll decide the game right there. If I missed that goal, that’d be a huge differential right there.”

KHS coach Scott Parillo was proud of the troops, despite the lack of a win.

“We definitely picked it up in the second half there,” Parillo said. “They know I wasn’t real thrilled with the way we played in the first half. That wasn’t Kaneland soccer, but we picked it up and we’re getting some guys back.”

The Knights continue action on Thursday, Sept. 6, against Illinois Math and Science Academy in Maple Park.

Golfers chip away at Sterling

in Golf by

KANELAND—While the journey last Thursday for Kaneland High School golf was west, the Knights’ fortunes went north after its Northern Illinois Big XII crossover battle.

A win over the host Sterling Golden Warriors at their home course improved the Knights overall dual record to 3-1 at this early juncture of the 2012 campaign. Tuesday’s close home loss to Wheaton Academy puts the Knights’ dual-meet record at 3-2 heading into Wednesday’s action, of which results were not available as of press time.

Competing at Emerald Hill Golf Club, the Knights used a top-end performance from its top four to emerge with a 153-158 edge.

Paced by co-medalist Matt Yonkovich’s clutch 36, it turns out the Kaneland roster needed every exceptional score.

In order to neutralize Sterling’s Andrew Blackburn’s score of 36, KHS also employed a 37 final score from Sean Glennon, as well as a 40 from both Brody Kuhar and Luke Kreiter.

Sterling also had additional totals from Trevor Sisson (39) and Austin Cook (40).

For the Knights, Jesse Denton also managed a 43, and teammate Connor Williams managed a 45.

In the frosh/soph meeting between the East and West Division institutions, it was Kaneland slamming Sterling by a wide 178-219 margin.

The underclass win was in large part due to Jeremy Faletto and his 43, along with Jacob Sheehan’s 44.

Tuesday saw the Knights lose a one-stroke nail-biter against visiting Wheaton Academy.

Kaneland’s Brody Kuhar came through with a big performance, earning medalist honors with a score of 35. Kreiter finished two strokes off the winning pace, with a 37. Yonkovich followed with a 38, and Williams and Denton each put up 40s for the day.

Kaneland also had play against Hinckley-Big Rock on Wednesday at Hughes Creek, followed by a Friday, Sept. 7, encounter with conference foe Yorkville in Kendall County.

High school sports participation achieves all-time high

in Sports by

INDIANAPOLIS—Boosted by continued growth in several girls sports, participation in high school sports increased for the 23rd consecutive year in 2011-12, according to the annual High School Athletics Participation Survey conducted by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).

Based on figures from the 51 NFHS-member state high school athletic/activity associations, which includes the District of Columbia, sports participation for the 2011-12 school year reached an all-time high of 7,692,520 participants—an increase of 24,565 from the previous year.

“In this time of ever-increasing financial challenges in our nation’s high schools, we are greatly encouraged to know that participation in high school sports continues to rise,” said Bob Gardner, NFHS executive director. “With more than 55 percent of students enrolled in high schools participating in athletics, the value of these programs in an education-based setting continues to be significant.”

An additional 33,984 girls participated in high school sports last year, making the all-time record total 3,207,533. This also marks the 23rd consecutive year for an increase in the number of female participants. Outdoor track and field (468,747), basketball (435,885) and volleyball (418,903) continued to be the top three participatory sports for girls, with volleyball up 9,571 participants from 2010-11.

Soccer (370,975) surpassed fast-pitch softball (367,023) as the fourth most-popular girls sport, up 9,419 from last year, while cross country (212,262), tennis (180,870), swimming and diving (160,456), competitive spirit squads (108,307) and lacrosse (74,993) completed the top 10. Along with soccer and volleyball, cross country, competitive spirit squads and lacrosse all had increased participation from 2010-11.

While girls participation continued to climb, boys participation figures dipped for the first time since the 1992-93 school year, down 9,419 from last year’s number of 4,494,406 to 4,484,987. Seven of the top 10 boys sports registered drops in participation, with 11-player football (1,095,993), outdoor track and field (575,628), basketball (535,289), wrestling (272,149), tennis (159,800), golf (152,725) and swimming and diving (133,823) all down from last year. Baseball (474,219), soccer (411,757) and cross country (248,494) all had increases from the previous year, with soccer registering the largest increase of 13,406.

Lacrosse, which ranks No. 11 in participation among boys sports, topped the 100,000 mark (100,641) with about 5,000 additional participants. Wrestling continued its rise in popularity among girls, with almost 1,000 additional participants up to 8,235.

Participants by state stayed true to last year’s order, as Texas and California once again topped the list with 808,806 and 781,912, respectively, followed by New York (389,475), Illinois (346,896), Ohio (333,349), Pennsylvania (317,869), Michigan (308,080), New Jersey (259,219), Florida (257,282) and Minnesota (238,363). Twenty states registered increases in participation in 2011-12.

The participation survey has been compiled since 1971 by the NFHS through numbers it receives from its member associations. The complete 2011-12 High School Athletics Participation Survey is available on the NFHS Web site at www.nfhs.org.

Cutting it close

Knights overcome slow start for 25-24 win
by Mike Slodki
CHICAGO—It wasn’t the start the Kaneland Knights football outfit wanted, but it’ll take the finish.

A late touchdown pass from junior quarterback Drew David to receiver Zack Martinelli with 3:11 remaining in the fourth quarter capped the comeback mountain against Chicago’s Brooks Prep Eagles on Saturday for a 25-24 week 1 win.

The second-half flurry completed a 24-6 comeback over the vastly improved hosts at Gately Stadium, which lays a field goal away from Chicago State University.

It was 365 days earlier that Kaneland’s attack produced a running clock for the entire second half in a 44-0 rout over Brooks.

Saturday’s contest echoed last year’s 17-point comeback win in September 2011 at DeKalb, and was a mirror image of sorts to Montini Catholic’s late comeback over Kaneland in the Class 5A State semis.

Kaneland has now won 20 consecutive regular season games in a row, and 25 of its last 27.

The streak was in jeopardy often on Saturday, due to the offensive output from Brooks quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw and tailback Cleveland Clark. Brooks tallied 324 total yards.

“They were running sweeps outside and then started running some options, and we had problems with our option responsibility,” KHS coach Tom Fedderly said. “In the second half, we made some adjustments and tried to bring a little heat from the outside.”

For Kaneland, David went 14-for-30 for 275 yards with two touchdown throws and a pick.

Martinelli caught six passes for 163 yards and two scores.

In the first quarter, Brooks hit paydirt first on its second drive, when Clark powered in from the one-yard line with 3:14 remaining for a 7-0 lead after a nine-play drive.

Dylan Nauert helped answer with a reception, and combined with a face mask penalty, the play netted 30 yards. Back Nate Dyer scored the first Knights touchdown of 2012 with a six-yard plunge, but Matt Rodriguez missed the point afterward to keep it 7-6 with :57 left.

Brooks continued to control the ball and clock in the following frame, and it led to a 21-yard field goal by Jesus Miranda with 5:12 to go in the second quarter for a 10-6 lead.

A Nauert touchdown pass was called back due to offsetting penalties, and the Knights were forced to punt.

Brooks made good on the new opportunity with a Clark five-yard touchdown run to make it 17-6 with :23 left in the half.

Bradshaw accounted for a 39-yard touchdown run on an option play to make it 24-6 with 4:32 to go, but Martinelli caught a 62-yard rainbow 12 seconds later to make it 24-13.

The fourth quarter started to shift the way of KHS, and after a Brooks punt, Nauert’s 48-yard catch brought the ball into Eagles territory. Nine plays later, Dyer’s two-yard touchdown run with 8:29 left closed the gap to within 24-19 after a missed two-point try.

Brooks punted again, allowing Kaneland to orchestrate its go-ahead drive. Martinelli grabbed a 29-yard slant pass to set up his touchdown reception that saw him juke a defender on a screen.

‘We’ve had a lot of hitches all week,” Martinelli said. “We’re coached to turn outside and I saw him turn inside.”

Martinelli knew the offensive side of the ball had to adjust in the final two quarters.

“I talked to Drew at halftime and told him it was just like DeKalb,” Martinelli said. “We’ve got to step it up and calm down. Once he calms down, Drew is probably one of the best quarterbacks in the state.”

Kaneland travels to Huntley High School to face the Red Raiders on Friday, Aug. 31. Kaneland has earned the upper hand in the last three meetings.

As a pack

in Boys Cross Country by

KHS boys XC team takes 6 of top 7 spots in season opener
Kaneland—Pack running has long been the mantra of the Kaneland High School boys cross country team under head coach Chad Clarey. If the team’s performance in Tuesday’s season-opener is any indication of what to expect this year, the Knights will be just fine.

“We are happy with our first run on the home course,” Clarey said after Tuesday’s win over West Chicago and Wheaton Academy. “We clearly have a lot to work on, but this has a very good feel for the start of a strong campaign.”

The Knights took six of the top seven spots on their way to a 19-point team tally, taking first place by far in the three-team field. Wheaton Academy took second in the tri-meet with 53 points, followed by West Chicago with 108.

Kyle Carter took the top individual spot with a time of 16:39, well in front of the second-place finisher, Noah VanDyke of Wheaton Academy, who crossed the finish line at 17:24.

“Kyle Carter broke away from the pack and finished with our fastest course time for an opening night,” Clarey said.

The Kaneland pack closely followed, as Knights took spots three through seven. Connor Johnson finished third in 17:38, closely followed by John Meisinger (17:40), Louis Acosta (17:43), Ryan Bower (17:46), and Brandon Hueber (18:05).

“Johnson, Meisinger, Acosta and Bower all were within eight seconds of each other. We’ll take that any day of the week,” Clarey said.

Nathaniel Kucera finished as the KHS seventh-man, placing 10th overall with a time of 18:56.

“Our boys opened the season with a very encouraging pack performance,” Clarey said. “We loved seeing them pair up and push through the hilly Elburn Woods course.

The Knights will host another tri-meet on Tuesday, Sept. 4, when East Aurora and Yorkville pay a visit to Elburn Woods.

Tennis overcomes early bump

KANELAND—A win last week at West Chicago had Kaneland tennis on a smooth track early.

That was until the Lady Knights met up with Wheaton Academy on Aug. 22 in Maple Park.

A 5-2 dual loss was then overcome on Thursday in a 4-3 squeaker against the visiting Blue Thunder of Belvidere North.

Kaneland now has a 3-1 record in dual play, as the schedule gets busier.

In the 5-2 loss to the Lady Warriors, the lone wins were handled by No. 1 singles entry Sammie Schrepferman in a 7-5, one-set affair, and by No. 1 doubles tandem Jelly Emmanouil and Madi Jurcenko in a 6-0, 6-0 sweep.

Wheaton Academy also bested Kaneland JV action.

Against Belvidere North, singles wins were gathered by Schrepferman, 6-4, 6-3, and by No. 3 star Stephanie Zwick, who held her counterpart at bay, 6-1, 4-6, 6-1, after Kaneland had already lost three matches.

Emmanouil and Jucenko took their match, 6-2, 6-0, while extra duo Colleen Landers and Kaylee Shoaff won the final match, 6-3, 6-1.

“Madi and Jelly played very good tennis and beat a couple of really good players,” KHS coach Tim Larsen said. “Sammie struggled but kept her composure for a good win. The hero of the day was Stephanie Zwick.”

Monday’s action saw the Lady Knights sweep Glenbard North in a 7-0 home victory, with every match going Kaneland’s way in straight sets.

Schrepferman cruised to a No. 1 singles victory, 6-2, 6-0. Steph Karolewicz earner her first varsity win of the season, 6-1, 6-2. Zwick completed the singles side of the sweep with a 6-4, 6-3 win from the No. 3 spot.

In doubles action, Jurcenko and Emmanouil breezed through a 6-1, 6-0 match. Jennifer Bicos and Jessica Woodward battled for a tough straight-set victory, 6-3, 7-5. Colleen Landers and Sarah Grams earned a 6-2, 6-1 win, and Abby Meyer and Kaylee Shoaff completed the sweep with a 6-2, 7-6 win.

Tuesday’s contest hosting DeKalb High School was rescheduled for Thursday, Aug. 30, and the Lady Knights will take on IMSA at home on Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Banbury makes All-Tourney team
KANELAND—”Two out of three ain’t bad,” and in the case of Kaneland volleyball, it nets a fifth-place finish.

Setting off for more action after an initial split of two encounters last week, Kaneland finished with a respectable two out of three wins on Saturday at the Wheaton North Invite.

The Lady Knights record is 4-2 overall after a loss to Stagg, but wins over St. Viator, Wheaton North and Burlington Central.

Against the Palos Hills, Ill. outfit, Kaneland fell 25-22, 18-25, 25-20.

KHS won the next two battles, beating Arlington Heights, Ill. team St. Viator by a final of 25-12, 20-25, 25-22, and mastering the hosts 25-11, 25-19.

Accumulated statistics featured Lauren Banbury getting an All-Tournament team nod with 15 kills. Teammate Ashley Prost had 26 kills and 21 digs.

Ellie Dunn of Kaneland added 11 kills, while fellow Lady Knight Lyndi Scholl had 17 kills.

Kaneland weapon Jenny Lubic had 62 assists and 16 digs, and Metea Valley transfer Shayna Tucek had 51 digs.

Tuesday saw the Lady Knights defeat visiting Burlington Central High School in two games by identical 25-17 scores.

Lubic led the way with 21 assists and 13 digs.

The Lady Knights move on to Hinckley-Big Rock for a match on Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Rebound

Knights top W. Aurora, DeKalb after loss to Marengo
KANELAND—Kaneland High School golf coach Mark Meyer knew his team wasn’t as deep as in years past, but believed the talent at the top could more than make up for any holes.

In the first several dual meets of 2012, that talent pool was enough for wins in two of three contests.

In Rochelle on Aug. 22, the Knights took a 157-174 win, before dropping a 174-179 matchup with host Marengo on Thursday.

On Friday at Orchard Valley GC in Aurora, Kaneland took care of the West Aurora Blackhawks in a close 161-167 affair.

Meyer was glad to see the events on West Aurora’s turf unfold.

“Golf is a game that depends heavily on confidence,” Meyer said. “I was glad that we had a match the day after Marengo, because we were able to put that performance behind us and regain some of our confidence.”

Against the Northern Illinois Big XII conference-sharing Hubs, the Knights saw top scores from medalist Connor Williams with a 36, Brody Kuhar and Luke Kreiter with a 39 and Matt Yonkovich with a 41.

Rochelle’s Brandon O’Rourke and Zach Pauser each had 42 for the Hubs.

JV action had Jesse Denton shoot a 42 to lead KHS to a 184-221 win.

On Thursday against Marengo, the Knights saw a 41 from Yonkovich and 45 from Williams and Kreiter.

Against the Blackhawks, the Knights were paced by co-medalist Williams’ 39, while Kuhar managed a 40.

The JV crew had a handy 181-219 win, in part to Jeremy Faletto’s 42.

Tuesday’s action against visiting DeKalb saw the Knights win 160-167, with Yonkovich earning medalist honors with a round of 36.

Thursday, Aug. 30, in Sterling sees the Knights have a NIB-12 crossover dual.

Knights win 2 of 3 in Fox Valley area
by Mike Slodki
KANELAND—Jacobs High School’s tournament in Algonquin, Ill., usually provides a nice early-season test for Kaneland soccer.

Taking on three teams at the tournament, KHS finished with a passing grade.
With two wins and a loss, Kaneland is now 2-1-1 in 2012.

The hosts took it to the Knights on Friday by a 4-1 clip, but a rebound transpired with a 3-0 Saturday win over Crystal Lake Central and a 1-0 win in penalty kicks over Harvard soon after to clinch second place.

Against Jacobs, Kaneland fell behind 3-0 after the first 40 minutes, and even a Kushstrim Ismaili goal on a feed from Ben Longson with 28:42 left couldn’t undo the damage.

Kaneland got momentum on its side once Saturday hit, thanks to goals from Anthony Parillo (29:28), Ismaili (9:04) and Evan Bohorquez (8:15, second half) vs. Crystal Lake Central.

The uplifting conclusion to the round-robin affair happened after a scoreless regulation against the Hornets. Kaneland’s 5-4 edge in penalty kicks was the difference in match played without the benefit of six Knights due to injury.

“I would say that we did as well as we could with the injuries we have had early in season,” KHS coach Scott Parillo said. “The Jacobs game was a less than stellar effort but we regrouped on Saturday and played a little better. I want to see how we play when we are at full strength.We have been practicing PK’s all season and it paid off.”

Kaneland battles former Western Sun Conference rival Geneva in Maple Park on Thursday, Aug. 30.

Lady Knight XC opens season with win by taking 4 of 5 top spots

Kaneland—Kaneland High School’s girls cross country team on Tuesday started its season on the right foot, earning a victory in a tri-meet over West Chicago and Wheaton Academy on Tuesday.

The Lady Knights took four of the top five spots in the meet on their way to a 28-point team total. West Chicago took second with 43 points, followed by Wheaton Academy’s 57 points.

Victoria Clinton was the top runner overall, leading the Lady Knights with a 15:01 time. Abby Dodis took third for Kaneland, with a time of 16:01. Brianna Bower earned fourth at 16:26, and Amanda Lesak closed out the overall top five with a time of 15:56.

Kaneland helped its cause with a pack of Lady Knights closing out their top seven as Jessica Kucera (17:22), Maggie Brundidge (17:25) and Catherine Deno (17:30) taking 15th through 17th place.

Kaneland will travel to the Oregon Invite on Saturday, Sept. 1, with a 9:15 a.m. start.

Fabrizius signs with Kishwaukee College

in Hometown/Volleyball by

Malta, Ill.—Kishwaukee College recently announced the signing of Kaneland High School graduate Grace Fabrizius to its volleyball team.

Fabrizius earned two varsity letters in volleyball at KHS. In 2011, she helped lead her team to earn second in the Northern Illinois Big 12 Conference. She earned an honorable mention in the NIB-12 in both her junior and senior years.

“Grace is a positive, hard-working player whom I had the privilege to coach against across the net for three years,” Kishwaukee volleyball head coach Stephanie Gooden said. “Grace is a smart attacker who can see the court and comes from a strong program at Kaneland High School. Grace will create a challenging atmosphere in our gym and help our team become stronger here at Kishwaukee College.”

Knights’ football feels good about what 2012 holds
by Mike Slodki
KANELAND—For the second straight season, Kaneland football endured a heart-pounding postseason journey.

For the second straight season, Kaneland had its heart broken against visiting Montini Catholic in the Class 5A State semifinals.

But this Knights crew, behind sixth-year coach Tom Fedderly, looks to start a new journey, and have it go just a bit further.

In the early days of practice, Fedderly is feeling good about his crew that has gone undefeated in regular season play since an Oct. 16, 2009, overtime loss to Geneva, and has won 27 of its last 29 contests.

The Knights can take solace in the fact of having five all-Northern Illinois Big XII players coming back.

“A lot of guys are returning, including four offensive linemen, and that means we can spend more time on the little things,” Fedderly said.

“Obviously, when you look at our team coming back, we have a lot of people back but we have to replace Sean (Carter) and Quinn (Buschbacher), and I think we’ll have some kids that’ll do that,” Fedderly said. “We have our quarterback coming back, and he’s a smart kid.”

That smart kid, Drew David, went undefeated, commanding the vaunted spread offense as a sophomore, and continues in the steps of his three-year starting predecessor, Joe Camiliere.

David passed for 39 touchdowns in 2011 and spurred comebacks against teams like DeKalb and Belvidere.

“When you look at Joe’s sophomore year and Drew’s, it’s about the same. I think they had 10 picks each. This year, we hope to not have as many turnovers. We talk about that a lot. Drew’s a smart kid, and he’s not going to make the same mistake twice,” Fedderly said. “He’s a real competitor, and we’re looking forward to seeing what he can do.”

Jesse Balluff returns to bear the load of the ball-carrying in his junior season.

“Last year, we didn’t know what we had coming off the ACL,” Fedderly said of the running back who battled an injury prior to the start of last season. “As the year went on, he got stronger. We just want to continue the progress with him.”

Carter and Buschbacher leave for collegiate ball in Wisconsin, meaning it’s time for new blood.

“We’ve got Zack Martinelli back and Kyle Pollastrini back; both started last year. Tyler Slamans will be out at tight end. Dylan Nauert primarily played defense last year, but he’ll take Carter’s spot and Brandon Bishop comes up, too,” Fedderly said.

On the line, Alex Snyder returns from an exceptional freshman season, and Joe Komel joins the three other returnees—Shane Jorgensen, Drew Sharp and Zach Theis.

Linebacking crew members Ryan Lawrence, Kory Harner and Gary Koehring are expected to bring more all-conference honors and big hits in 2012.

The secondary needs to replace the opportunistic ball-hawking play of Jacob Razo.

Nauert, Harner, John Pruett and Tanner Andrews are looking for picks and hits in the defensive backfield, with Dan Goress and JR Vest fighting for a spot, as well.

Buschbacher’s exit leaves a return hole, but Martinelli and Bishop are projected to offset that need.

Matt Rodriguez will contribute his kicking and punting skills in 2012.

Kaneland looks to take care of tasks and will rely on not only its coaching staff on the sidelines, but on the field.

“We have experience and really smart kids. Getting to the semis last year, they got big-time experience in big games and I think these kids have their heads on straight,” Fedderly said.

The Knights’ quest begins on Saturday, Aug. 25, against host Brooks Prep at Gately Stadium in Chicago, while the first home game is Friday, Sept. 7, against Sterling.

KHS golf looks to improve upon 8-4 dual meet finish a year ago
by Mike Slodki
KANELAND—You’ll have to excuse seventh-year coach Mark Meyer for not approaching 2012 with trepidation.

Yes, the Knight golfers have to go into battle without their departed senior captain trio of Troy Krueger, Adam Grams and Zach Douglas.

But Meyer is confident that the remaining names jotted on the scorecard a year ago can achieve great heights this year.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Meyer said. “We may not be quite as deep, but we have a lot of talent at the top.”

Finishing 8-4 in dual competition and earning a fifth-place nod at the Northern Illinois Big XII meet a year ago, Meyer will count on a top five of seniors Luke Kreiter, Sean Glennon and Connor Williams, juniors Brody Kuhar and Matt Yonkovich.

Yonkovich was the lone individual to advance to sectionals in 2011 as a sophomore, shooting an 80 at regionals to help cap his first varsity year.

“Kuhar and Yonkovich came up with the two best averages on the team last season, they really stepped up their game. Luke is becoming a great golfer,” Meyer said.

While the lineup’s last spot has yet to be filled, the Knights will depend on a consistent score from everyone.

“We have three golfers that are capable of shooting low 70s. We’ll have to see about that last spot and that’ll help the depth, but we’re looking for consistent scores,” Meyer said.

The Knights won’t rest easy on the links with the beginning of the season already under their belt with meets in Plainfield and Geneva, and they look forward to the meet with Marengo on Thursday, Aug. 23.

“It can only help. A bad start won’t doom you, but a good start can help set expectations for you,” Meyer said.

Kaneland’s first home NIB-12 meet is with visiting DeKalb on Tuesday, Aug. 28.

Golf season already underway
Kaneland High School golf has looked productive in its first couple of outings.

The team kicked off the KHS athletic season with a third-place finish in the Plainfield North Invite on Aug. 13. Its team-wide score of 314 was just behind Benet Academy’s 306 and Lockport’s 312. KHS finished just ahead of Marmion at 314 in the 16-team meet.

Kuhar earned the top morning for the Knights with a score of 75, which included a round of 37. Teammate Matt Yonkovich shot a 77 to prop Kaneland up in the 16-team invite.

Last Thursday at the Geneva Invite, the Knights took fourth with a total of 304. Marmion’s 288 accumulation was good for the win. Kuhar managed a 74 tally for 10th overall and best on the team.

Boys Cross Country Preview: Making excellence familiar

Cross country team looks to return to top-tier at state
by Mike Slodki
KANELAND—One has to be considered a top-tier team in Class 2A after securing 15th place in the boys cross country finals a year ago.

But Kaneland won’t be satisfied.

Yet, while Kaneland looks to aim even higher this year, the program also has to see how to replace important losses.

Gone from the 2011 season’s top seven are Miki Marin and Clayton Brundige, but the remaining top five look to be a force to be reckoned with.

“The very bottom line for us is it’s a 12-week season,” KHS head coach Chad Clarey said. “It’s a long campaign and there’s always a push by many different teams toward the end. We slowly progress our way toward the season.”

Kyle Carter came on strong as his sophomore season went on, and eventually put up top team numbers.

Carter’s 39th place finish could serve him well as a reminder of what’s possible.

“He had a great season last year. He ran a PR for the course at State, and he’s looking for more this year. He wants more out of himself and wants more out of this team,” Clarey said.

Also returning are senior leaders Conor Johnson, John Meisinger, Brandon Huber and junior Luis Acosta, all with pivotal postseason experience.

“Conor and John stand out right away. Both of them are working through some of those aches and pains. They’ve been in the program. This is their fourth year, and that experience makes a huge difference,” Clarey said.

Huber was touted as the most improved runner a year ago by Clarey, having run 16 minutes, 16 seconds at State.

‘We’re going to use our depth, and we’ve got a huge senior class,” Clarey said.

The sense of the moment allowed Kaneland to power through a stacked sectional hosted by Belvidere a year ago, and it will be a challenge to break through that upper class lineup.

The season opens at Elburn Woods on Tuesday, Aug. 28, with a meet against West Chicago and Wheaton Academy.

Familiar core could equal success for girls XC
by Mike Slodki
KANELAND—How can you replace a Lady Knights girls cross country squad that finished eighth in the Class 2A meet a year ago?

It’s relatively easy when nearly the entire team returns to do it all over again. Now, they’re a year older, more experienced, and battle-tested.

Paced by sophomore Victoria Clinton’s ninth-place finish, senior Maggie Brundige’s 35th-place finish and sophomore Aislinn Lodwig’s 59th-place at the Peoria gathering a year ago, Kaneland has a unique benefit of bringing back a team familiar with success.

“Every runner’s different, and they have individual goals,” KHS coach Doug Ecker said. “I think we’ll have good depth, but I’m not sure of the order.”

Sydney Strang, Abby Dodis, Amanda Lesak and Ashley Castellanos rounded out the top seven and bring upperclassmen leadership.

“Lesak saved us last year for never having been a distance runner, and finished 80th in the State meet, and she’s strong. They all bring depth,” Ecker said.

A KHS athlete would need to be exceptional to break through the upper echelon of the team this year.

“You throw in the eighth-grader from last year, Brianna Bower, who’s very talented, and we’ll go pretty deep,” Ecker said.

Ecker also touted Jessica Kucera as a possible contributor to a winning pace.

“We just have to get better and find out what they do and their goal; my goal is to get them to a State meet,” Ecker said.

The full roster will be needed in order to compete against not only the State field, but the ultra-competitive Northern Illinois Big XII Conference.

“You had four teams from the conference finish in the top 11 in the state (Yorkville, Kaneland, DeKalb and Dixon). Yorkville’s lost their top three, but they return an All-State runner and they’ll be strong again. Dixon will be good,” Ecker said.

The 2012 quest begins on Tuesday, Aug. 28, against West Chicago and Wheaton Academy at Elburn Woods.

Tennis Preview: Eyes on the prize

Defending conference champs aim to continue winning ways
by Mike Slodki
KANELAND—It’s an exciting time to be involved in Kaneland tennis, whether you are a player or a parent, a fan or a friend.

Imagine what it’s like for coach Tim Larsen.

Larsen wants to build off of a second consecutive season in which the Lady Knights had a presence at the state level, and now the team has reached a level in which his players consistently expect to win.

“It’s definitely exciting,” Larsen said. “The approach to practice has felt different. Our JV coach (Dominic Bruno) is in his third year, and I feel a lot more comfortable having him deal more with the younger players. That allows me to deal with varsity and make adjustments to their game.”

With Kaneland capturing the Northern Illinois Big XII mantle last season, adjustments might not need to be very significant.

One adjustment that needs to be made is replacing a capable Class of 2011 core, featuring Stephanie Rosenwinkel, Madi Limbrick and two-time State goer Amelia Napiorkowski.

Napiorkowski took care of business at the last two sectionals, pairing up with Lindsay Jurcenko in 2010 and current sophomore Limbrick in 2011.

“Losing Amelia is big. She was a competitive force and set a great example,” Larsen said.

Larsen intends to sync Jurcenko with last year’s No. 2 singles conference champ and fellow sophomore Jenny Emmanouil for the top doubles spot.

“They are very excited to play together. They are kind of making their own story. Immediately, it’s different than what other doubles teams have done,” Larsen said.

The only other cemented pairing is the second doubles spot, with Jenna Bicos and Jessica Woodward serving as a tandem once again.

On the singles side, sophomore Sammie Schrepferman takes the reins.

“Last year, I really had no choice to put her at the No. 1 spot, she was playing so well. She did really well with the experience,” Larsen said.

The other singles entries are sophomore Colleen Landers at No. 2, and Stephanie Karolewicz at No. 3.

Larsen thinks the lineup has it in themselves to do big things, which has been the norm as of late for the program.

“I trust the kids. The game is not bigger than them, they just need to keep their focus on the opponent,” Larsen said.

With a couple meets already under their belt this past week, Kaneland hosts Belvidere North on Thursday, Aug. 23.

Lady Knights start with win
Kaneland kicked off its season with a 5-1 victory over West Chicago on Monday.

“Good start for Kaneland,” Larsen said. “Very happy to start with a win.”

Schrepferman took the No.1 singles match in straight sets, 6-0, 6-2. Landers dropped her match at No. 2 singles, 6-0, 6-3, but Zwick returned the Lady Knights to the win column with a three-set battle, 6-1, 4-6, 7-4.

In doubles action, No. 1 doubles team Jurcenko and Emmanouil, as well as No. 2 doubles team Bicos and Woodward, each won their matches by identical 6-0, 6-1 scores.

The No. 3 doubles match went to three sets, with Grams and Aly Harner earning a 6-2, 6-7, 7-1 victory.

While Larsen and his team are happy with the win, he said there remains room for improvement.

“We did uncover a decent list of things to work on, so we’ll be practicing hard tomorrow (Tuesday),” he said. “But all in all, a very good start.”

The JV team fared even better against West Chicago, sweeping its opponent away 6-0.

Lady Knights use last year’s semifinal loss as motivation
by Mike Slodki
KANELAND-—Last year’s Class 3A regional semifinal against Glenbard South had a little bit of everything.

If you were a Kaneland volleyball fan, it had everything except a win.

Just one point away from getting to the regional final, it leaves the remaining players from the 2011 squad and returning coach Todd Weimer hungry.

“We want to win. No one is happy and we’re making sure we work hard on overcoming that tough loss versus Glenbard South,” Weimer said.

Weimer has seen much improvement in the program since he took over seven years ago, and the Lady Knights have put together back-to-back 19-win seasons.

They’re looking for more from the returnees.

“The qualities and skills are there from all of the girls. While we graduated some great kids, we have a lot of awesome newcomers. Our veterans are doing terrific so far,” Weimer said.

The great kids Weimer refers to are players like Northern Illinois Big XII player of the year Kylie Siebert, current Wichita State University Shocker Katy Dudzinski, Kourtni Bingley and Malory Groen.

While that group of players lost to graduation is significant, a solid core returns to the Kaneland roster.

The Lady Knights are lifted by senior captains Ashley Prost and Lauren Banbury, and junior captain Jenny Lubic.

Senior returnees also include Keri Groen, Lyndi Scholl and Rachael Clinton.

Varsity newcomers include juniors Ellie Strang, Meredith McCaffrey, Casey Jacobsen, Brin Wilk and Emily Laudont.

Two other newcomers to the Kaneland ranks are expected to produce big things in the form of senior Metea Valley transfer Shayna Tucek and sophomore Ellie Dunn, sister of volleyball alum Ashley Dunn.

“We just need to play great defense and work together. The stronger we work together, the more we can accomplish,” Weimer said.

The Lady Knights wish to get things going right away in regular season and conference play, and improve on their third-place finish a year ago.

“We lost four conference matches last year, two to DeKalb, one to Morris and one to Yorkville. It’s wide open and anybody’s conference. We have the tools and weapons to bring it. It’s a matter of finishing it and getting the end result in our corner,” Weimer said.

The Lady Knights opened their season at the Wheaton North Tournament this week, which concludes on Saturday, Aug. 25. Their home opener is against Burlington Central on Tuesday, Aug. 28.
