  • Jayla Turchin and Ambrea Gentle didn’t grab EVERY rebound Monday at the 30th annual Coach Kipp Hoopsfest shootout event at Willowbrook High School.It probably just seemed that way to members of the Mother McAuley basketball team.Turchin and Gentle combined for 32 points and 35 rebounds as Evanston overpowered the Mighty Macs for a 59-49 victory and improved to 17-2 on the season.

  • Zev Grodzin and Aiden Cella both claimed individual sectional qualifying spots while leading the Evanston boys bowling team to a 7th place team finish on Saturday at the Glenbrook North Regional tournament.
  • Gibson, Wildkits Rally Past Hillcrest for Shootout Win
    Jaylin Gibson stashed in a game-high 22 points, and added 8 rebounds and 3 steals as the Wildkits rallied from a 7-point deficit in the fourth quarter for a 74-69 triumph over south suburban power Hillcrest.
  • The Evanston senior point guard became only the second female player in school history to reach the 1,000-point plateau in her career Friday night, adding a dash of drama to an otherwise easy 74-31 victory over Glenbrook North for the Wildkit girls.
  • Finally showing a sense of urgency after trailing most of the Central Suburban League South division contest, the Wildkits held GBN to just 1 field goal in the last 10 minutes of a 57-44 victory.
  • Not many of the entrants competing at the New Trier Winter Dive Classic invitational Saturday tried as many dives with the degree of difficulty that tested Evanston’s Aryeh Lesch. Lesch’s diving list is still evolving for the 2019-20 season, and so is the ETHS sophomore, who is only in his second season in that specialty.

  • Life in the fast lane isn’t always easy. Up against a field that included 5 of the top 10-ranked teams in the state of Illinois, Evanston’s swimmers couldn’t aim too high during Saturday’s 55th annual Evanston Invitational meet.

  • Fourth Quarter Surge Helps Wildkits Avoid Upset

    Evanton’s basketball team didn’t show Mather much respect Saturday night at Beardsley Gymnasium. And a Wildkit team that hasn’t needed to absorb a loss to learn valuable lessons so far this year almost learned the hard way.

  • Halfway through his basketball career at Evanston, Blake Peters is still evolving as a player. He’s already taken the next step as a 3-point shooter, and that versatility was on display against Friday night as the Wildkits drilled visiting Niles West 71-37 in a running clock game.

  • Evanston’s 14th consecutive win this season came behind a balanced effort that offset a 36-point splurge by Niles North star Aquan Smart. The Wildkits, ranked No. 2 in the latest Associated Press Class 4A state poll, were led by Daeshawn Hemphill (20 points), Elijah Bull (18 points), Jaylin Gibson (13 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists), Blake Peters (13 points, 7 rebounds) and Isaiah Holden (10 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists).
  • Evanston Girls Prove They Can Play with the Best
    Evanston won 2 of 3 games at the National Prep Classic tournament, its only loss coming against the eventual tournament champion, and pushed its season record to 14-2 overall. The Wildkits defeated Lee Magnet 74-59, lost to LaGrange 55-46, and on Saturday bounced back to overpower Doyle 69-50.
  • This has not been a great start to winter fishing. Most of our area lakes as far north as southern Wisconsin have little to no ice, which is unusual for this time of the season. ... If ice fishing is not your thing (it’s not mine either), there is a great place to spend some time where it’s warm and dry this winter.
  • Living up to a promise they made to their head coach after faltering (again) last year at the Montini Holiday Tournament, the Wildkit girls captured the tournament crown with a 55-37 thrashing of Lake Forest in the title game Monday night.
  • Evanston’s reputation as second half team is still intact. The Wildkit girls advanced to the finals of the Montini Holiday Tournament with a narrow 53-52 triumph over the host team Saturday night in a battle of unbeatens that wasn’t for the faint of heart.

  • You only need one hand to count the number of times an Evanston basketball team has captured a Christmas tournament championship. And the Wildkits didn’t mind working overtime to achieve that rare feat here on Saturday night.
