Minor League Baseball recognizes Cougars’ Daddy/Daughter Date Night

in Kane County Cougars by

The Kane County Cougars’ Daddy/Daughter Date Night has been recognized by Minor League Baseball as a finalist for this year’s Golden Bobblehead awards.

The promotion, which took place on June 8 at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark, is one of seven finalists in the “Best Theme Night” category, and the winner will be announced at the Minor League Baseball Promotional Seminar, to be held from Oct. 2-5 in Reno, Nev.

Fans can view a complete list of finalists at promo.milb.net/12_Awards.aspx. Over 160 nominations from various Minor League clubs were submitted for consideration. This marks the second straight season in which a Cougars promotion has been nominated for a Golden Bobblehead award, as the organization’s “Night of 100 Promotions” was named a finalist in the “Best Theme Night” category last fall.

June’s Daddy/Daughter Date Night, held in conjunction with Princess Night, offered Cougars families the chance to order a unique “Daddy/Daughter” package that included game tickets, a princess tiara, a photo opportunity with Ozzie T. Cougar, and a chance to watch the post-game princess-themed fireworks show from the outfield grass. Also as part of the Princess Night theme, girls were encouraged to dress in princess attire and participate in a pre-game princess parade.

While in Reno as part of the Minor League Baseball Promotional Seminar, Cougars staff will present the “Daddy/Daughter Date Night” to their peers affiliated with other Minor League teams, as well as Minor League Baseball staff, who will vote on the awards.

“We’re honored to be recognized by our colleagues as a finalist for one of this year’s Minor League Baseball Golden Bobblehead awards,” said Cougars Promotions Coordinator Jenni Brechtel. “Having one of our promotions nominated as best theme night for the second straight season is a testament to our front office staff, for their creative brainstorming and idea sharing, that is truly a year-round process. We’re looking forward to representing all of our fans who participated in our inaugural Daddy/Daughter Date Night, at this fall’s Minor League Baseball Promotional Seminar.”

Kaneland alum battling for starter spot at Augustana

in Football by

Rock Island, ILL.—According to Augustana College’s Associate Director of Athletics Dave Wrath, Kaneland graduate and Augustana Junior Eric Dratnol “might have the inside track for the center position” as the Vikings set their rosters for the upcoming football campaign.

The team is trying to rebound from a difficult 2011 season.

When head coach Rob Cushman was asked to assess the Augustana football team’s chances for the 2012 season, he got right to the point.

“Without question we have a lot of change from a year ago,” said Cushman, whose team went 2-8 overall and 2-5 in the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin in his first year at the Vikings’ helm. “It starts with a coaching staff that lost some very valuable and longtime members, and it continues with the exciting plans for a new stadium and the fact that we will be playing on a new turf this fall. There is an excitement amongst our players as we start the year. Even with all the changes that have and will happen, this program still has the same goals as always. We want to contend for a conference title and be a factor in the national picture.”

What happened in 2011 was a plethora of games that were decided in the last minutes of games. Of the eight losses, five were decided by less than eight points, and the Vikings trailed CCIW champion North Central on the road by just 10-3 before the Cardinals put up two late scores in the final minutes.

“I have been coaching 30-plus years and I don’t think I have ever seen a season like that,” Cushman said. “We all know that the ball bounces in funny ways, but it sure didn’t bounce our way last year. That was quite a learning experience for all of us, and I think we learned from it.”

The Vikings kick off their season Sept. 1 when they travel to the University of Dubuque.

Kaneland Sports Boosters to team up with Dodge Aug. 16

in Kaneland/Sports by

KANELAND—The Kaneland Sports Boosters are teaming up with Dodge for a great, fun-filled event during “Knights Under the Lights” on Aug. 16.

Sports and athletic activities are a valuable part of the high school experience, enriching the lives of students and their communities. Yet, schools are often short of funds for their sports and athletic programs. Parents are frequently asked to reach into their own pockets for equipment, uniforms, travel expenses and more.

Dodge and its dealers are committed to the communities where they do business, and Dodge supports organizations that work to benefit students, like the Kaneland Sports Boosters. Since 1993, Chrysler Group LLC has helped raise millions for elementary schools across the country through the company’s popular Drive for the Kids program.

Since 1996, Dodge Booster Club Fundraisers have provided support for student enrichment at the high school level and showcased a new generation of Dodge.

The concept is simple: the Kaneland Sports Boosters Test Drive Event Fundraiser is an exciting opportunity that can result in big cash rewards. During the event, participants earn $20 to support the Kaneland Sports Boosters by taking a brief test drive in a new Dodge. All licensed drivers, age 18 or older, are eligible. The whole community can participate. The more test drives you take, the more money for Kaneland sports and athletic programs.

This event is friendly and fun. There is no sales pressure. Participants are not required to buy anything; kids don’t sell anything. Busy parents appreciate the chance to check out the latest automotive innovations and talk about cars with knowledgeable representatives from Dodge.

There will be giveaways and raffles for all participants. Kaneland Sports Booster will also directly award the top girls sport and boys sport who produces the largest percentage of test drivers with 10 percent each of the total amount raised. So get the word out to all your family, friends and neighbors, and come out to Knights Under the Lights. Watch a preseason sports event and test drive a new Dodge to help the Kaneland Sports Boosters support all their Kaneland athletes and programs.

WCC’s VandenBorn earns Dick Durrant Award

in Featured/Waubonsee Sports by

Sugar Grove—The Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference recently named Waubonsee Community College’s Kelsey VandenBorn as one of the co-winners of the Dick Durrant Academic Athlete of the Year Award for 2011-2012.

The Dick Durrant Award is given annually to the male and female student-athletes in the Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference (ISCC) who attain the highest grade point average after completing four semesters of college work, and at least 48 semester hours of credit.

Begun in 1979, the award is named after Dick Durrant, who was an outstanding teacher, coach and athletic director at Elgin Community College from 1961 through 1985.

Durrant championed the philosophy of academic as well as athletic excellence while at Elgin.
Durrant was known for his concern for students, his sense of fair play and his attitude of education before athletics.

VandenBorn, a nursing major from Batavia High School, finished the school year with a perfect 4.0 grade point average while being a leader on Waubonsee’s volleyball team. The sophomore was tabbed to the All-ISCC First Team after leading Waubonsee with 88 blocks.

The 6’1” middle blocker was second on the team with 222 kills, and also recorded 69 digs and registered 21 aces last fall for the Lady Chiefs. VandenBorn is the 18th Waubonsee student-athlete, and first since 2007, to earn this award. Waubonsee had seven consecutive recipients from 1993 to 2000, while 14 of the Chiefs’ honorees overall have been female student/athletes.

Kaneland Knights 12U team takes KCBL tourney championship
kaneland—The Kaneland Knights 12U baseball team concluded its 18-2 season with a championship victory in the Kane County Bronco League (KCBL) Tournament in late July.

The team faced the Oswego Cobras in the championship game, and the two teams battled into extra innings.

The KCBL utilized what is known as “California Rules” for extra innings, which is a way to speed up the conclusion of a game. Each team begins each extra inning with an automatic one out with a runner on second. Each batter begins their at-bat with an automatic 1-1 count.

Oswego started off their half of the extra inning by driving one run in.

When Kaneland took their turn at the plate, the Knights secured their victory with a walk following by a two-run drive into right-center field.

Kane County 16U softball team takes talents to Nebraska
North platte, neb.—With a never-say-die attitude, the Kane County Xplosion 16U softball team earned several come-from-behind victories to earn a third-place finish in the Class A Northern National Tournament in North Platte, Neb.

In game one of Pool Play, the girls beat the Echoes Adrenaline from Omaha, Neb., 6-4. Offensively, Lauren Zick and Emma Spagnola each had two hits and accounted for three of the runs, while Amanda Lack had a triple and Samantha Phelps added a double. Stephanie Prentice got the win with five strikeouts. Lauren Zick turned in the defensive play of the game with a diving catch in center field.

Game two saw the girls win 14-5 over the JR. Phoenix from Wisconsin. After falling behind 5-1, the girls put up 10 runs in the top of the fourth to blow the game wide open. Madeline Avery and Allison Miller were both 3-for-4, with Avery knocking in three runs in the fifth with her first homer of the tournament. Kaylee Hayton got the win.

The Orland Park A’s were the first opponent of Bracket Play, and after spotting them four runs in the first inning, the girls shut them out the rest of the way for a 7-4 win. McKenzie Bretag was 4-for-4 and Avery 3-for-4 to lead the team offensively, with Prentice notching the win. Kuefler was stellar at third base on defense.

Next up were the Wisconsin Bandit’s Black, and in a hard-fought game the girls came out on top with a 7-6 win. After jumping out to a quick lead, the girls found themselves behind 5-4 in the fifth. The girls were able to score two in the top of the seventh inning to come from behind for the win. Avery added her second home run of the tournament and was 3-for-4, while Kuefler and Phelps were 2-for-4.

Next up were the Bridgeview Redbirds, and once again the girls fell behind early. Kane County was down 4-0 after three innings before the bats came alive, scoring six runs in the last three innings for another come-from-behind win, 6-5. Phelps led the charge, going 3-for-3.

On Sunday, the girls came out flat for the first game and lost to the eventual champion. Kuefler notched her first home run of the tournament, and Lack went head over heels for a diving fly ball. After dropping to the loser’s bracket with three teams remaining, the girls once again faced the Bandits Black and came up one run short in the bottom of the seventh inning.

The girls finished the season at 40-15-2.

Kaneland brings out alumni for soccer

Former Cougar duo hits the bigs

Minor League Baseball’s strikeout leader debuts for Oakland; Storey debuts for Astros
GENEVA—A pair of Kane County Cougars alumni made their Major League debuts on Friday evening.

Pitcher Dan Straily, a member of the 2010 Cougars, made his Major League debut, starting for the Oakland Athletics against Toronto. Another pitcher, Mickey Storey from the 2009 Cougars squad, made his debut for the Houston Astros against Atlanta.

Storey and Straily become the 119th and 120th former Cougars to reach the Major Leagues. Both players join pitchers Pedro Figueroa and Sean Doolittle, who both debuted earlier this season with Oakland, as Cougars to make their big league debuts this season.

The 23-year-old Straily was part of the Cougars’ 2010 Opening Day roster and was a 10-game winner that season, going 10-7 with a 4.32 ERA and 148 innings pitched. Straily won 11 games the following season at Class-A Advanced Stockton, and opened this season at Double-A Midland. The right-hander, who was not regarded as one of the A’s top prospects by numerous publications this past spring, quickly caught the attention of Minor League Baseball earlier this season and hasn’t backed off since. The right-hander struck out a career-high 15 batters on May 18 for Midland, and was promoted to Triple-A Sacramento the following month. In eight starts with Sacramento, Straily went 5-2 with a 1.36 ERA, and at the time of his promotion on Thursday, led Minor League Baseball with 175 strikeouts. The next closest pitcher has 138 strikeouts. Straily becomes the first Cougar from the 2010 team to reach the Major Leagues.

Storey pitched in 13 games for the Cougars in 2009, all in relief. The right-hander only allowed one earned run in those 13 games before receiving a promotion to Class-A Advanced Stockton on June 25 that summer. The only other Cougars alumnus to make his big league debut with the Astros was Tommy Martin (’91 Cougar) on April 2, 1997.

Friday’s occurrence marks the third time in franchise history that two former Cougars made their big league debuts on the same date. Vic Darensbourg (’93 Cougar) and Gabe Gonzalez (’95 Cougar) both debuted with the Florida Marlins on April 1, 1998. More recently, Trevor Cahill (’07 Cougar) and Ronald Belisario (’02 Cougar) made their big league debuts on April 7, 2009, for Oakland and the Los Angeles Dodgers, respectively.

The Cougars organization, which began in 1991 and is presently affiliated with the Kansas City Royals, has had at least one former player make a Major League debut in each season, dating back to 1993. The list includes Major League All-Stars, World Series champions and former Rookie of the Year, Gold Glove and Silver Slugger award winners.

Guyton still swinging wicked club

in Golf by

Storied KHS golfer sharpened skills at Illinois Women’s Open
by Mike Slodki
ELBURN—For those that missed last week’s golfing performance from Sugar Grove resident and former Kaneland golfer Hayley Guyton, she laughed while offering, “You didn’t miss much.”

That’s just the level of standard that the current Illinois State University women’s golfer and four-time IHSA State qualifier holds herself.

Guyton still managed to finish 39th at the July 25-27 2012 Phil Kosin Illinois Women’s Open at Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville, Ill. The pool of nearly 100 competitors was mostly concentrated in the Midwest.

“It was great to see people from the college meets there, and it’s good to compete against them in the summer,” Guyton said. “It’s fun to get to compare where we’ve been.”

Guyton managed to hold her own with scores of 76, 80 and 82.

Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich., native Samantha Troyanovich took the open with a total tally of 215.

Guyton, who finished in second place at the 2009 IHSA State meet after a playoff, competes at around five tournaments a summer including a 2012 Naperville Women’s City Championship-best 76 back in June, when she’s not suiting up in the Bloomington-Normal, Ill. area for the Lady Redbirds.

But even Guyton can get rattled occasionally, which she admitted occurred in her first collegiate year.

“The level of competition and ability against the other teams was really high and you found yourself having to play differently, but I am golfing with a lot more confidence now,” Guyton said.

As part of a Redbirds squad that missed a Missouri Valley Conference crown by three strokes, Guyton is eager to show her skills with a year of collegiate play under her belt for a roster with multiple conference titles.

“I love getting out and playing all the courses, like the one at Missouri. I’m playing in the evenings and at the course all weekend, and I’m up for it and really excited. It didn’t sit well with us when we lost,” Guyton said.

Sixth-year ISU coach Darby Sligh has offered valuable help with Guyton’s game as it continues to transition.

“My coach really helped me, and now I’m really practicing with more confidence,” Guyton said. “I’m lacing the ball more.”

Guyton and the rest of the Redbird crew will putt against the field at its very own Redbird Invitational at Weibring Golf Club at Illinois State University in Normal, Ill., on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 8-9. ISU also treks to the island of Oahu in March 2013 for the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational.

Wherever the course, Guyton is using the action locally to up her golf game.

“I have a purpose out there.”

Knight Dyer takes his shot in Baltimore

in Boys Track by

KANELAND—Kaneland High School track standout Nate Dyer may not have won a first this past weekend in Baltimore, but he can still consider himself part of the upper-upper echelon.

The lineman and thrower traveled to Morgan State University to compete in the 2012 USATF National Junior Olympics this past Thursday through Saturday, and did his part in three events.

Dyer placed 11th overall in the hammer throw out of 27 participants, beating his personal best by 16 feet. Dyer had previously set the state record at the State Junior Olympics in Kankakee, Ill., by 19 feet.

Dyer placed 12th in the discus out of 32 athletes, and placed 11th in the shot put out of 50 kids.

This was the second occasion that Dyer went to the National stage, having last been there in 2010.

Dyer was able to qualify for the Morgan State gathering with his output at the Regional Junior Olympics in Franklin, Ind., in early July. The junior achieved first places in both the hammer throw and shot put, and second places in the discus and javelin.
