RANTOUL – Chris Wagner didn't recognize Golden Hairston the first time he spotted the junior this fall, but the Rantoul boys' basketball coach liked what he saw.

Girls' Swimmer of the Year: Lisa Boyce

URBANA – Lisa Boyce always has picked up on things pretty easily. She's always had a talent for seeing something once and almost immediately knowing how to conquer it.

The Urbana University High School junior began her swimming career at 3 and was in the pool competitively – and winning – at 5. That's about a year after her early entry into grade school. She tested out of a year of high school at Uni High, meaning the 14-year-old will start college (hopefully at UC Berkeley) at 16.

Fine finish for Boyce

EVANSTON — Lisa Boyce’s first season as a high school swimmer ended in impressive fashion.

Boyce, the Urbana University High junior who competed for the Illineks for the first time this fall, finished fifth Saturday in the 100-yard backstroke at the state swimming and diving meet.
