Kaylen Dickson scored 15 of her game-high 17 points in the second half, and Warren's girls basketball team picked up a 52-33 nonconference win over visiting Vernon Hills on Friday night.

The Blue Devils won their fourth game in a row and ninth in their last 10.

Jordyn Hughes added 14 points, including four 3-pointers, and Macy Kocen had 8 points for Warren (15-5), which led 10-7 after one quarter, 24-16 at halftime and 38-26 after three.

Vernon Hills (11-7) was paced by Kylie Bunning's 7 points and Kayla Caudle's 6 points and 18 rebounds. The Cougars got 6 points as well from Daniella Jarrell and Nicole Pieper. It was Vernon Hills' third loss in a row.

Grayslake Central 47, Wauconda 32: Rosie Drevline led all scorers with 17 points, and the host Rams remained undefeated in Northern Lake County Conference action.

Ania Barnes added 13 points for Grayslake Central (14-6, 7-0), which extended its winning streak to five games.

Freshman guard Lluvia Sanchez came off the bench to score a season-high 11 points for Wauconda (9-8, 3-4). Allie Tylka tallied 8 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals. The Bulldogs were within 31-24 after three quarters before getting outscored 16-8 in the fourth.

"The 15-point differential at the end was not indicative of how close it was through three quarters," Wauconda coach Jaime Dennis said. "Grayslake Central is a good team and we ran out of gas in the fourth. We had a great defensive third quarter and made some great stops but missed some gimmes on our end.

"Again we had a rough start and spotted them 7 points in the first minute of the game, then we settled down. Take away that poor start and we are winning at half. It was, by far, our best effort of the year."

Dennis also liked Sanchez's defense.

"It was nice to see her come in and have impact on the game," Dennis said.

Lakes 46, North Chicago 26: Mia Edwards and Brittany Washington scored 14 and 13 points, respectively, for the visiting Eagles in the Northern Lake County Conference game.

Lakes (9-10, 4-3) stretched its winning streak to four games, while North Chicago fell to 0-7 in the NLCC.
