Danville all-comers meet on tap
DANVILLE – An all-comers indoor track and field meet for males and females is Feb. 7 at Danville High School, beginning at 10 a.m. The entry fee is $1 per event, and individuals are limited to four events.
The balls of today won't be the balls of tomorrow for the Illinois High School Association.
The IHSA announced Monday the awarding of a five-year contract to Baden to supply the official ball for postseason games in baseball, basketball, football, softball, soccer, volleyball and water polo.
PAXTON – It wasn't sudden-death overtime, but Paxton-Buckley-Loda's Austin Wood's interception with four seconds left preserved his team's 55-54 victory against St. Thomas More on Tuesday night.
VILLA GROVE – It took quadruple overtime, but Arcola emerged with an 89-85 victory against Villa Grove on Tuesday night in Little Okaw Valley Conference boys' basketball.
URBANA – When Dan Lilly has down time at his rural Tolono home, he heads to the family barn.
DANVILLE – D'Lando Carter tallied a game-high 14 points for Danville to help the Vikings (4-10) upset 13-3 Centralia 48-43 in nonconference boys' basketball Saturday.
"It was a major upset. Centralia is an outstanding program. Our guys stepped up and played extremely well," Danville coach Gary Tidwell said.
TOLONO — On a night when Unity star Zebo Zebe set a school milestone, backcourt mate Kyler McFall stole the show.
McFall had 18 points, eight rebounds and two assists and Zebe became the first Rocket to score 1,000 points since NBAer Brian Cardinal in a 64-51 win against Central Catholic Saturday at Kessler Shootout at the Rocket Center.
Our winning streak is over, but not before we won our first 13 games. We're proud to be the team that broke the school record for victories to start a season, which was 12.
As we kept winning games, that record was one of our goals. We were all talking about it. Actually, we were hoping to go undefeated, but we can't now. Not after Chicago Hope beat us 50-48 in the championship game at the Kankakee tournament.
