On Saturday night the Huntley girls basketball team hosted the Barrington Fillies in a non-conference game. The game would not turn out quite as expected.
Early in the first period Barrington jumped out to a 10-3 lead on Huntley, as Huntley started slowly with their only basket being a three pointer from sophomore Kayla Barreto. Then Huntley went on an 8-0 run and ended the first quarter with a 14-12 lead behind their top scores Ali and Sam Andrews.

The six lane indoor pool at The Sage YMCA in Crystal Lake is crowded, muggy, and silent. The stands are so packed with family and friends that visitors are crowding glass windows outside just to get a peek. Everyone is ready to watch two rivals duke out the final meet of this year’s regular swimming season. For the many seniors competing, it is the last dual meet of their high school swimming career.
He walks onto the AstroTurf soccer field as the rubbery, wet smell fills his nose. The rain has just stopped and now it is time to get serious about the game.
