The Fenwick boys basketball team experienced something last year the program has not endured in a long time: A losing season. The sub-.500 performance was the first for John Quinn in his 28 years as head coach. But coaches and players are determined to right the ship this season.
The OPRF boys basketball team seems to have a lot of everything this season. The Huskies are senior heavy, and brimming with guards. They also have not one, not two but three talented and experienced big men towering 6-foot-7 or taller.
"While they have always played fast, they have never played this fast," said J.P. Coughlin of this season's OPRF girls basketball team. The new head coach is instituting a style of play that includes launching three-pointers, crashing the boards and playing a smothering style of defense.
They started the season with a disappointing record of 3-5, but no one gave up hope. Beginning at about the midway mark of the schedule, the Fenwick boys soccer team went 11-1-1, and ended the season with a goal-net full of accolades.
Wednesday Journal recently obtained a copy of the Elmhurst police report involving former Concordia University-Chicago baseball coach Spiro Lempesis, which led to the school initiating an independent investigation of allegations that stemmed from the coach's firing two years ago.
