Kyra Spiwak wasn't about to stop at 1,000 points.

One game after reaching that career milestone last Friday, the Rolling Meadows senior guard poured home 24 points with 6 rebounds and 4 assists as the Mustangs posted a 58-49 win over Mother McAuley at Tuesday's Exam Jamm at Lake Zurich High School.

Rolling Meadows (8-3) was led by Kyra Spiwak 24 points,6 rebounds, 4 assists.

Morgan Campagna collected 21 rebounds and 7 points for the Mustangs (8-3) while Katherine Nolan had 15 points and 8 rebounds.

"It was a hard-fought win against a good Mother McAuley team," said Meadows coach Ryan Kirkorsky. "Kyra was sensational on the offensive end. Morgan was all over the boards and Katherine had a solid all-around game. One of the keys to the game was the on-the-ball defense by Clare Preissing and Alexa Davis."

Prospect 59, Wauconda 47: Junior guard Emily Frasco drained six 3s and finished with a career-high 35 points as the visiting Knights won a nonconference matchup.

"It was so neat to see a player become untouchable," said Prospect coach Gabrielle Lovin, who saw Frasco come up just 2 points of the program's single game scoring mark. "It seemed like time froze as she was playing. I wish she had two more minutes so she could have broken the record."

Margherite Pettenuzzo had 6 points for Prospect (4-5), which won its second straight.

Allie Tylka had a team-best 20 points, which included an 8-for-8 effort at the foul line, for Wauconda. She also had 3 rebounds, an assist and 3 steals.

Katie Rossetti had 14 points, 3 rebounds and a steal for the Bulldogs (5-5).

Fremd 58, St. Viator 38: With her future assistant coach from Harvard on hand, Fremd senior Grace Tworek registered a career-high 27 points with 18 rebounds and 6 blocks as the Vikings improved to 8-2 with a victory in the Exam Jamm at Lake Zurich.

"Grace had an amazing game for our us," said Fremd coach Dave Yates. "She was hitting 3s, finished around the rim, blocking shots and going hard to the glass.

"That was one of her more complete games I have seen her play. I wish the Harvard coaching staff would come to all of our games. Grace showed why she is one of the top players in the state."

Yates put together the Exam Jamm, which featured nine games in three different gyms at Lake Zurich.

"The event went great," he said. "We had 34 college coaches on hand for our inaugural event."

Hersey 66, Johnsburg 30: Claire Gritt (20 points, 5 steals), Kelly Weyhrich (12 points, 7 assists, 5 rebounds) and Gina Miklasz (10 points) led the offense for Hersey (10-1) at the Exam Jamm at Lake Zurich.

Maesyn Benjamin added 7 points for the Huskies while Kendall Palmer and Katie McGrath had 6 apiece.

Wheeling 53, Glenbrook North 16: Melissa Claver (14 points), Nosa Igiehon (10) and Shannon Kennedy (8) led host Wheeling (6-5) to the nonconference win.

Schaumburg 57, Bartlett 39: The host Saxons improved to 6-5 with a nonconference victory over the Hawks.

Cary-Grove 47, Conant 36: Jorie Wachal, Cate Fitzgerald and Taylor Cyr each had 8 points for visiting Conant (2-7) in the nonconference game.

Grayslake North 49, Barrington 47: Sidney Lovitsch scored 22 points and Sydney Paez added 11 points for visiting Grayslake North (9-2), which hiked its winning streak to eight games by edging the Fillies (1-8).
