    Lakes, Grayslake North both pick up 2 victories
    Daily Herald report

    Lakes' girls basketball team is moving on to the winners' bracket in the Northern Illinois Holiday Classic after wins over Crystal Lake Central and McHenry on Saturday.

    In its first game of the day at Woodstock, Lakes (8-5, 3-0) beat Crystal Lake Central 51-33 behind game-high scorer Terese McMahon's 17 points. Amanda Smith and Heather Hurlbut had 9 and 8 points, respectively, to help lead a balanced attack.

    The Eagles came out "a little sluggish," coach Pete Schneider said, and got behind 9-1. But they got focused and led 14-13 at the end of the first quarter. Schneider said "a great third quarter put the game out of reach."

    Crystal Lake was led by Evelyn Youel with 11 points and Shannon Ellmen with 10.

    Lakes defeated McHenry 44-30.

    "McHenry starts three kids 6 feet, and they are strong and physical," Schneider said.

    "We told the kids that McHenry would play physical and they are big. We needed to be on our game defensively and communicate. We got great defensive games from Dayna Olson, Amanda Beetschen and Shelby Trkla in the post. Our guards Amanda Smith, Nicole Mogged and Heather Hurlbut did an outstanding job of forcing (McHenry's) offense to stay outside the three- point line, which made it difficult for them to run their offense."

    McMahon led Lakes with 18 points, while Hurlbut added 14.

    Grayslake North 56, Rockford Jefferson 30: The Knights dominated its first game at Marengo, leading 21-5 after the first quarter and 40-8 at the half. Sam Karnuth led Grayslake North, scoring 11 points. Ashley Martineau added 8.

    Grayslake North 53, Marengo 26: Joanna Guhl led the Knights, scoring 13 points, and Kendall Detweiler and Britney Thibeaux each added 10.

    Grayslake North's two wins at Marengo hiked its record to 12-0 and 3-0 in the Northern Illinois Holiday Classic.

    Libertyville 49, Lake Forest 25: Dana Kym led Libertyville, scoring 12 points and grabbing 8 rebounds in the North Suburban Lake game. Olivia Mayer added 11 points and 7 steals.

    "We had a solid defensive effort today, which led to some good offensive opportunities," Wildcats coach Greg Pedersen said.

    Libertyville (4-7, 3-2) has won three of its last four.

    Wauconda 47, Marengo 35: Lauren Nee scored 13 points and grabbed 6 steals for the Bulldogs, who got their first win in the Northern Illinois Holiday Classic. Dani Sturm had 7 points and 5 rebounds, and Lexie Redmann added 6 points and 8 rebounds for Wauconda (3-8).

    Wauconda 55, Rockford Jefferson 26: Wauconda dominated its second game, outscoring its opponent 27-6 by halftime and securing its second win of the day.

    Lauren Nee led the Bulldogs with 11 points, 5 rebounds and 3 steals. Alyssa Wagner followed with 10 points and also added 5 rebounds. Becca Michelau and Kelli Stanley each grabbed 5 rebounds.

    Stevenson 47, Lake Zurich 27: Sophia Way scored 10 points, including the team's lone two 3-pointers, as the host Patriots improved to 7-4 and 4-1 in the North Suburban Lake with their seventh win in a row.

    Sarah Stefaniu scored 10 points to lead Lake Zurich (2-9, 0-5).
