Hersey girls basketball coach Mary Fendley is nearing a milestone.

And the Huskies sure put in a lot of mileage on the scoreboard in Friday's 73-35 win at Elk Grove.

With their coach now just 3 wins away from 400 for her career, the Huskies produced one of their highest-scoring quarters in school history.

Hersey (19-2, 6-0) outscored the Grenadiers 33-4 in the third period of the Mid-Suburban East contest.

Gina Miklasz (16 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists), Kelly Weyhrich (14 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists), Erin McGrath (14 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds) and Claire Gritt (12 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists) all reached double figures for the Weyhrich and Miklasz each had four 3-pointers while teammates Claire Rogowski and Maesyn Benjamin had one apiece.

Fendley is now 397-168 in 19 seasons directing the program.

Jenny Banak (11 points) and Megan Murray (9) led EG (3-18, 0-6).

Palatine 44, Barrington 31: Host Palatine (11-9, 3-3) avenged an earlier loss to Barrington as Elena Porrata (9 points), Tiana Henderson (8), Syd Rzepka (6) and Reggie Much (6) led the way on the scoreboard

Alex Van Ryne (10 points) and Cecilia Stack (8 points, 10 rebounds) were top scorers for the Fillies (3-17, 1-5).

"I felt good for Alex to get her back (strained biceps muscle which sidelined the senior since Dec. 2)," Barreiro said. "I thought she was solid. I also thought Stack played a nice game."

Tori Meyer and Claire Collier had 3-pointers for the Fillies.

Rolling Meadows 56, Wheeling 43: Visiting Rolling Meadows (16-6, 5-1) was led by Morgan Campagna (12 points), Katherine Nolan (8) and Caili Hosler (7). Kelsey Nallon hit a pair of 3-pointers in the first quarter when Meadows jumped out to a 26-15 lead.

"Kelsey Nallon helped give us a great start to the game," said Meadows coach Ryan Kirkorsky. "And Caili Hosler played her best minutes of the year."

Wheeling (10-12, 2-4) was led by Melissa Claver (14 points), Nosa Igiehon (8) and Shannon Kennedy (7).

Buffalo Grove 50, Prospect 46: Senior Megan Gamber scored a game-high 14 points to lead the host Bison (11-12, 2-4) in the MSL East contest.

She was followed by teammates Kendra Lee (8 points), Alyssa Floro (7), Georgette Topalis (7) Jackie Bickhaus (6) and Macy Floro (5).

"Buffalo Grove came out and capitalized on our inability to finish our shots in the lane," said Prospect coach Gabrielle Lovin. "Shooting 28 percent makes winning the game that much harder."

Prospect (9-10, 3-3) was led by Emily Frasco (12 points), Ashley Adams (9), Mandy Withey (8), Margherite Pettenuzzo (7) and Eileen Donohue (7).

Maine West 72, Maine East 37: Freshman Angela Dugalic (13 points, 12 rebounds), junior Jessica Riedl (13 points, 7 rebounds) and junior Allison Pearson (13 points) led the way as all 11 players scored for visiting Maine West (18-3, 7-0) in the CSL North game.
