  • Additional Tales During the Lockdown
    May 15  As we venture forward in our new normal, I can’t help thinking that a fishing trip to an area lake would help with the “lockdown” feeling and allow us to get out into the fresh air and participate in an activity that we did prior to the COVID-19 impact.
  • Fishing During the Lockdown
    March 27.  As we all are dealing with “social distancing” and the “Stay at Home” directive, we will start getting to have some feelings of cabin fever. We need to be able to get out a little, and I couldn’t think of a better thing to do than to go fishing.
  • Gibson Leads the Way for Flying Fish at Illinois Senior Championships
    Matt Gibson placed second in the boys 200-yard butterfly with a time of 1:51.93 at the Illinois Swimming Senior Championships, leading the way for YWCA Evanston/North Shore’s Flying Fish swim team, which sent a host of competitors to the event at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
  • IHSA Decision Ends Evanston's Cage Season
    Evanston’s season, along with the rest of the schools still alive in postseason play, was cut short on Thursday evening when the Illinois High School Association announced the cancellation of the Class 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A state basketball tournaments.
  • Isaiah Holden has evolved as a player into one of those do-whatever-it-takes performers that every high school basketball team needs. Tuesday night in the semifinals of the Class 4A Elk Grove sectional tournament, it took a perfect effort by the junior guard at the free throw line to keep Evanston’s season alive.

  • The postgame handshake line resembled a somber funeral procession and there was no raucous celebration from the winners even while they were cutting down the nets Friday night at the Class 4A Maine East regional tournament championship game.
  • Saturday turned out to be moving day for the Evanston swimmers and divers participating at the Illinois High School Association state finals at the Burton Aquatic Center. And no one showed more upward mobility than diver Aryeh Lesch.

  • As a gymnast turned diver, Evanston sophomore Aryeh Lesch probably didn’t realize until now that there’s another element to his new sport --- scoreboard watching.
  • It took members of the Evanston girls basketball team several months to get over the pain of last year’s overtime loss to eventual state champion Maine West in the sectional championship game. Thursday night in Des Plaines, the Warriors broke their hearts all over again.

  • Reserves Shine for Kits in Regular Season Finale
    Doing what they do best, junior reserves Ashton Laude and Ethan Kye combined to shoot 9-of-16 from 3-point range as the Wildkit bench wiped out the Blue Demons by a 72-51 margin in a Central Suburban League crossover game.
  • More important, coach Kevin Auger’s squad claimed 8 individual spots and 2 relay berths for the Illinois High School Association state finals set for next Friday and Saturday at the Burton Aquatic Center at ETHS.
  • And the best may be yet to come for the Evanston junior, who scored a 4th place finish at the Class 3A Illinois High School Association state individual tournament in the 170-pound weight class competition that concluded Saturday at the University of Illinois in Champaign.
  • But this isn’t your mother’s Evanston team. The Wildkits regrouped and put together a dominant performance on both ends of the floor, crushing a good Maine South team 65-51 and advancing to Thursday’s title game against defending state champion Maine West.
  • None of the members of the Evanston girls basketball team were alive when Joe Namath made his famous guarantee of a Super Bowl victory. But Jayla Turchin’s promise turned out to be just as significant Friday night for the Wildkits.
