Sabers halfway home

NORMAL — St. Thomas More’s girls’ basketball team is on a weekend business trip.

Day 1 went well.

In Class 1A, Fishers Hannah Varner was the state runner-up.




Curry, Varner advance to contest finals

NORMAL — Two area shooters are among the four finalists in the IHSA state three-point shooting contest at Illinois State University’s Redbird Arena.

Watseka senior Devin Curry — the lone area qualifier in 2A — hit 11 of 15 attempts in Thursday’s qualifying round. She had the second-best total and will shoot in Friday’s four-person finals at about 8:15 p.m.

Fred Kroner: McCoy, parents adjust to spotlight

CHAMPAIGN — Tim and Kim McCoy are like all parents. They want what’s best for their children.

They are also unlike most parents. Few couples have a child who’s regarded as one of the nation’s top two basketball players in her grade level.

As Tori McCoy is educated at St. Thomas More — in the classroom and on the court — Mom and Dad are going through a learning process as well.

Wooden Shoes stand in STM's way

CHAMPAIGN — The expectations for St. Thomas More’s girls’ basketball program in the fall of 2010 were not what outsiders might think.

They weren’t even what those involved with the team now might have imagined.
