At least a few moments worth remembering Where were you when? That question gets raised every time the anniversary date of a significant world event comes back around. For Baby Boomers, nothing may be more frequently asked than their whereabouts on the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The first moon landing in 1969 receives similar recall…

Marist dodges bullet vs. St. Patrick Marist’s defense had no answer for Jeremy Molina Saturday afternoon. Luckily for the RedHawks, he also wasn’t the right answer for St. Patrick. Certainly, the tailback did more than his fair share on the Shamrocks’ behalf as he accumulated 266 rushing yards on 34 carries and scored twice. But even with key…

Breakthrough soccer moment for Cyclones women   Suddenly, things are looking a whole lot better for Moraine Valley College’s women’s soccer team. Defensive lapses and an ongoing lack of offensive pop had combined to sabotage the Cyclones several times thus far in the 2013 season. And while Moraine’s attack still didn’t generate big numbers last Tuesday,…

Mustangs rebound after break to sting OL One half meant a whole lot to Evergreen Park Friday night.

Eagles never lose lead while downing Porters   Finally, no comeback was required. In each of its first two outings of 2013, Sandburg had been unable to hang on to a halftime edge.

When Sandburg’s boys’ cross country team competed in last Saturday’s Reavis Invitational, it did so with an entirely different group than had run for the Eagles in the previous week’s meet.
