Fremd's girls basketball team won its 41st straight game in the Mid-Suburban West with a 61-28 win at Hoffman Estates on Tuesday night.

The Vikings, led by Grace Tworek's 13 points, 11 rebounds and 5 blocked shots, improved their record to 22-5 and 9-0 while Hoffman Estates stands at 3-21 amd 1-8.

Freshman Emily Klaczek added 10 points and Midori Williams 8 for West champs, who also received 7 points and 5 rebounds from Missy Adrian.

Tayler Williams paced Hoffman Estates with 8 points.

Prospect 59, Elk Grove 32: Junior guard Sara Biesterfeldt scored a career-high 16 points with five 3-pointers for Prospect (10-12, 4-5) in the MSL East win.

Mandy Withey (6 rebounds) added 9 points while Mary McKenna (8 rebounds) and Haley Will each chipped in 6.

"We played together as a team," said Prospect coach Gabrielle Lovin. "We passed the ball well and capitalized when we could."

EG (3-21, 0-9) was led by freshman Megan Murray's 13 points.

Schaumburg 72, Barrington 60: Mallory Gerber (19 points), Maya Bowens (11 points), Regina D'Orazio (11 points), Laura O'Connell (10) and Abigail Paolicchi (9) led the host Saxons (14-10, 6-3) on their senior night.

Freshman Taylor Thompson (9 rebounds) paced Barrington with 19 points followed by Tori Meyer (15), Claire Collier (8), Cecilia Stack (6) Rachel Mori (6) and Alex Van Ryne (6). Mori had 6 assists.

Barrington led 28-26 at half but Schaumburg outscored the Fillies 27-18 in the third quarter.

"Taylor Thompson really took over much of the offense for us tonight and I was happy for her especially since she has been out injured for the last three and a half weeks," said Barrington coach Babbi Barreiro. "She has got a ton of potential and it was nice to see her show a bit more of what she is capable of."

Mori provided the Fillies valuable minutes off the bench.

"She did a great job of feeding the post and had some timely buckets," Barreiro said. "It was a good game tonight and we again showed that we are capable of playing with good teams, but we have to do a better job of not having defensive lapses at pivotal moments.

"Schaumburg has many weapons and we let them get too many easy buckets. Gerber and O'Connell certainly showed why they are four-year varsity players. I felt like every time we made a run, they were able to answer."

Rolling Meadows 58, Buffalo Grove 37: Seniors Kyra Spiwak (22 points) and Morgan Campagna (19) led visiting RM (19-6, 8-1) in the MSL East game.

Alexa Davis chipped in 8 points and Katherine Nolan 6 for the Mustangs, who host Hersey at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
