  • Swimmers, Divers Seeking Virtual Success in 2020
    Aug. 26  When he was a standout swimmer at Indiana University back in 1981, Kevin Auger participated in a “virtual” dual swim meet against the Soviet Red Army team. At the height of the Cold War, the two opponents traded faxes comparing times and the Hoosiers won bragging rights.
  • Kits Hope Numbers Add up to Winning Season in Tennis
    Aug. 20  Social distancing, reduced fields for invitational tournaments and the use of one set of tennis balls per team at ETHS are just part of the “new normal” that the Wildkits will be dealing with.

  • 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.

  • 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.
