    Hersey gets back on winning track
    Daily Herald report

    The second-longest winning streak in coach Mary Fendley's 16 years at Hersey ended on Friday night.

    But less than 24 hours later the Huskies were starting a new one.

    Junior Annie Korff scored 17 points and pulled down 7 rebounds as Hersey won its Saturday matinee nonconference girls basketball game 63-49 over visiting Niles West at the Ken Carter Gymnasium.

    "We just didn't click at the beginning of the game," said Fendley, whose team had won nine in a row until a loss to state-ranked Rolling Meadows on Friday. "It was so intense the night before. We sort of relaxed this game. But with Niles West hanging around on us (18-18 tie), then we kind of kicked it into high gear."

    The Huskies broke the tie with 20-2 run and never looked back to improve to their best start under Fendley to 17-2.

    Senior guard Morgan Harris added 12 points and 4 assists for the Huskies while 6-foot sophomore Maggie Berigan scored all 10 of her points in the first half on 5 field goals. She also blocked 3 shots.

    Harris had a pair of 3-pointers for the Hoffman Estates and Wheaton North tourney champions while Juliette Vainisi and Korff each had one.

    "We had good ball movement," Fendley added. "Annie Korff did a really nice job. It was nice to get back on the winning track."

    The Huskies longest winning streak under Fendley in 11 in a row.

    Conant 61, Maine East 33: Conant rebounded from a tough 1-point loss to Barrington the night before as junior forward Dee Dee Durr scored 13 points with 5 rebounds for the host Cougars (12-8).

    Lexi Zades and Brie Murphy each added 9 points for the winners while Nireet Dhillon added 8 points with 3 assists, 3 rebounds and 2 steals.

    The hosts made seven 3-pointers, including 3 from Zades, 2 apiece from Dhillon and Durr and one each by Sarah Mazurek, Murphy and Jorri Wachal.

    Palatine 38, Highland Park 26: The host Pirates produced one of their better defensive efforts of the season, claiming a nonconference win over the visiting Giants and bouncing back nicely after an MSL West loss to Fremd on Friday.

    Morgan Radtke led Palatine with 12 points as the Pirates (7-13) kept Highland Park in single-digit scoring in all four quarters.

    The game also marked the first action for Monica Masini as she recovers from an ACL tear; she finished with 6 points.

    "Our defense was outstanding," said Palatine coach Mark Johnson. "The girls had great energy tonight and did a fantastic job of rebounding."
