    Schaumburg tops Fremd, tightens up West race
    Daily Herald report

    Just two weeks ago, Schaumburg's girls basketball team dropped a 49-36 decision at Fremd.

    But Tuesday night, Saxons coach Ashley Berggren watched her team rise to the occasion against the four-time defending Mid-Suburban West champs.

    Senior Amanda Kelly scored a game-high 20 points while junior Carly Brossard (12 points) and sophomore Jada Blackwell (10) also reached double figures as the host Saxon topped the Vikings 46-37.

    Fremd (19-7, 5-2) is tied for first with Palatine (19-5, 5-2) in the West.

    Schaumburg improved to 12-10 and 3-4.

    "We changed up our defense this time so we could do a better job on Ashley McConnell (12 points) and Haley Gorecki (14)," Berggren said. "Those are two great players for Fremd.

    "(Sophomore) Brittany Reinhardt (2 steals) and (senior) Riley Williams (3 rebounds, 2 steals) matched up with them and did a great a job holding them down. It was great defense by our entire team."

    Brossard pulled down a game-high 15 rebounds, 11 on the defensive side.

    "Carly was all over the defensive boards," Berggren said. "Amanda (Kelly) had a big night, controlling the tempo of the game. And Jada had some big buckets toward the end of the game."

    Schaumburg led most of the first half. Fremd gained a 1-point lead in the third quarter but Schaumburg pulled ahead 31-26 going into the fourth quarter.

    Gorecki led Fremd with 10 rebounds while Bernie Williams had 4 and Brianna Lewis 3.

    Hersey 44, Wheeling 25: Hersey improved to 12-9 and 4-3 in the MSL East as Morgan Harris scored a game-high 13 points.

    Renee Poulos and Meg Cerniglia chipped in 9 points apiece while Casey Weyhrich had 5.

    "I think the girls worked real hard defensively," said Hersey coach Mary Fendley. "Meg (Cerniglia) set the tone with her aggressiveness and everyone worked hard to rebound."

    Wheeling (7-16, 1-6) was led by sophomore Deanna Kuzmanic (8 points) and senior Brie Majkowski, who was 7-of-8 from the free throw line for all her points.

    Conant 50, Hoffman Estates 40: Sophomore guard Lexi Zades hit four 3-pointers and finished with a team-high 18 points to lead Conant (10-12, 2-5) in the MSL West contest.

    Katie Lomas (7 rebounds, 4 assists) added 9 points for Conant while teammates Nireet Dhillon (4 rebounds, 2 assists), Sarah Mazurek (7 rebounds, 4 assists) and Haley Anderson (7 rebounds, 2 assists) each chipped in 6 points.

    Senior Destinee Young led Hoffman (9-11, 3-4) with a game-high 27 points and 15 rebounds.

    Hawks coach Mike Nocella did not have the services of starting forward Becca Stoczynski, who he hopes can return from a concussion for Friday's game against Fremd.

    Maine West 45, Lake Zurich 43: Junior forward Brittany Collins scored a game-high 19 points with 15 rebounds and senior guard Alexia Prosperi added 11 points as Maine West improved to 8-13 with the Sweet 16 victory in Des Plaines.

    Christian Liberty 49, St. Benedict 38: Junior Shelbi Hernandez (62 percent from the floor) had a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds as Christian Liberty improved to 13-5.

    Junior Megan Sullivan had 14 points, shooting 71 percent from the field and converting 3-of-4 3 pointers. She also had 5 assists.

    Sophomore Jessica Moriarty tossed in 15 points with 3 steals while Jenn West had 7 assists, 5 rebounds and a 3-pointer.
