Cary-Grove 57, McHenry 41: Claire Jakubicek scored 22 points and Paige Lincicum had 14 as the Trojans (21-3, 8-0) rolled to another Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win. Cary-Grove can clinch at least a share of its second straight Valley title with a win over Jacobs Tuesday. Megan Straumann added 9 points for the Trojans in Saturday's win.
Huntley 41, Dundee-Crown 31: Down 24-22 entering the fourth quarter, Huntley (15-6, 7-1) found its offense and kept pace in the FVC Valley by defeating Dundee-Crown. If the Red Raiders beat McHenry on Tuesday, they will host Cary-Grove next Saturday with a share of the Valley title on the line, provided C-G beats Jacobs Tuesday. Kadie Lowery led Huntley, which is still without injured scoring leader Carly Goede, with 10 points while CeCe Tsevas and Meagan Flynn had 8 each. Diamond Williams had 9 points for the Chargers (6-16, 1-7).
CL South 36, Jacobs 31: The Gators (3-20, 1-7) won their first FVC Valley game of the season as Brittany Pittas scored 12 points and Stephanie Melone 11. Melanie Schwerdtmann had 19 points to lead Jacobs (3-20, 2-6).
St. Charles East 47, Elgin 30: The Maroons trailed just 26-18 at halftime but could only manage 12 second-half points in losing this Upstate Eight River game. Briana Hamilton had 10 points to lead Elgin (0-23, 0-10). "Our kids played really well," said Elgin coach Dr. Nick Bumbales. "They hung in there and played hard."
Kirkland Hiawatha 35, Westminster Christian 30: Mikala Hays had 9 points for Westminster (12-10) in a nonconference loss.
Geneva 86, Larkin 16: Jill Casebeer led Larkin (3-19, 2-7) with 8 points in this lopsided Upstate Eight River game.
Burlington Central 52, Harvard 34: Alli Settanni had 18 points and Sarah Nelson added 10 as the Rockets (11-12, 5-3) won in the Big Northern East. Central was still without starting center Brenda Thasavong, who is out with illness. Amanda Ritchie and Jessica Laird added 8 points each for BC. "We had a lot of support off the bench. It was a good team win," said Rockets coach Stephanie Smith.
