Nick Irvin’s Morgan Park squad was left off the bill for the Chicago Elite Classic for the second consecutive year. His response? Create a shootout on the same day that features mounds of intriguing in-state talent and matchups.
Ron Ashlaw knew that coming over from Waukegan to Bloom wasn’t going to be a smooth transition and that it would take an adjustment period. Ashlaw sees the team going in the right direction after its first four games of the season.
Alexis Glasgow led the way with 26 points, Ashley Montanez added 18 points and Jackie Kemp had 16 points, seven rebounds and 13 assists as Rolling Meadows hung on against host Fremd on Tuesday for a 71-68 victory.
Abriya Zeitz finished with a game-high 18 points to go with 10 rebounds for West Aurora, which after defeating Rosary 59-32 Tuesday, is one win away from matching the overall win total from last season.
On Saturday, Downstate Washington’s wrestling team traveled to Sandburg for a quad meet that included Lincoln-Way West and T.F. South. Each school hosted a different level of competition and combined to raise over $4,000 for the relief fund.
Jachai Taylor scored eight of his 12 points in the fourth quarter, and Tyler Williams and Tyrone Whittington each hit a pair of free throws in the final 18 seconds as host Waukegan held off Maine West 61-59 on Tuesday to notch its first win of the season.
