The 12U Homer Lady Heat have been on fire this season, winning three consecutive tournaments. 

The girls’ first win came at the USSSA Mokena Blast into Summer Tournament on May 24 and May 25. 

Two weeks later, the team traveled to Wisconsin for the USSSA Duel in the Dells. This tournament was double elimination, so the girls actually had to win the championship game twice.

It made sense that Providence Catholic High School played its first varsity lacrosse game against the Lincoln-Way team Tuesday, March 18.

Providence coach Mike Janicek became involved with lacrosse when his son was in sixth grade and signed up for the Lincoln-Way youth program. Before he knew it, Janicek found himself assisting Lincoln-Way coach Todd Hyatt.

The Will County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the alleged exchange of inappropriate text messages between as many as a dozen Hadley Middle School sixth-graders, Homer School District 33C Superintendent J. Michel Morrow confirmed Friday, April 11.

The investigation was launched Monday, April 7, when a student showed building administrators a message he or she had received. Morrow said he believes the text involved an image, as well as text, but he was not positive of the specifics.

The Lockport Township High School District 205 Board of Education met on Monday, April 20, to discuss and approve several action considerations, but the board’s biggest approval of the night was to appoint James Prunty to the athletic director position.

“I feel honored and flattered,” Prunty said. “I’m really excited to get started.”

Prunty is currently the assistant men’s basketball coach at the University of Chicago. He has been coaching for the past 39 years for basketball, golf and baseball; the past nine of which was spent at UC.

The decision is final. Woodbine Golf Course will cease operation on Dec. 31, 2014, due to a recent decision that restored the Village board’s initial agreement, which was unanimously approved at a special meeting held Dec. 23, 2013. The motion to remove the agenda item was raised by Trustee George Yukich and seconded by Trustee Michael Costa during a Wednesday, Sept. 10 regular meeting. The item passed 6-0, nixing consideration of a 2015 management agreement with Woodbine — a topic that has divided the board in recent months.
