After four lead changes, Glenbrook North snagged an 11-5 win over Evanston in the Class 4A Wheeling Regional. “It was not pretty and not exactly how we would’ve liked to come out today and play, but the end result is a win,” Spartans head coach Jenn Mau said. “My girls … ]]> Sat, 26 May 2012 18:43:29 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/12794622-393/softball-glenbrook-north-claims-regional-title.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/12794622-393/softball-glenbrook-north-claims-regional-title.html <![CDATA[ Baseball: Glenbrook North ‘underdog’ Bruce lets his play do the talking ]]>
While Glenbrook North baseball teammates Jason Scholl and Peter Resnick were accepting bids to attend Eastern Illinois University and Bradley, respectively, nothing was on the radar for senior center fielder Chad Bruce. “I kind of expected it,” Bruce said. “I knew I wasn’t going to be getting offers in the mail or anything so I knew I had to play my best … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Baseball: Glenbrook North tops Libertyville in season finale ]]> Not a lot of fine tuning is needed for Glenbrook North leading up to its first postseason game. The Spartans got to Libertyville’s pitching early and grabbed an 11-4 victory in the final game of the regular season Saturday. “I felt very good about the pitching, the hitting and the defense that we played today,” Glenbrook North coach Dom Savino said. “I … ]]> Sat, 19 May 2012 16:06:14 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/12641668-393/baseball-glenbrook-north-tops-libertyville-in-season-finale.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/12641668-393/baseball-glenbrook-north-tops-libertyville-in-season-finale.html <![CDATA[ Baseball: Resnick notches second no-hitter as Glenbrook North tops Niles West ]]> The first no-hitter of Peter Resnick’s Glenbrook North career came in a 2011 sectional semifinal against Loyola Academy. While the stakes weren’t as high against Niles West’s powerful offense Tuesday, Resnick was equally impressive. He threw his second no-hitter to lead the Spartans to a 3-0 win over Niles West (11-2). “I thought I had a chance to dominate them on the … ]]> Tue, 10 Apr 2012 22:37:55 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/11831840-393/baseball-resnick-notches-second-no-hitter-as-glenbrook-north-tops-niles-west.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/11831840-393/baseball-resnick-notches-second-no-hitter-as-glenbrook-north-tops-niles-west.html <![CDATA[ Baseball: New BBCOR bats become pitcher’s best friend ]]>
A month into the baseball season and most baseball players in the area are trying not to think about the new BBCOR bats they’ve been forced to swing this season. Sparked by concerns that baseballs bounce too fast off metal bats, the National Federation of State High School Associations pushed for bats that acted more like wood. BBCOR (bat-ball coefficient of restitution) … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Landwehr, Prospect handcuff Glenbrook North ]]>
The first time Prospect met Glenbrook North, Jack Landwehr wasn’t as fortunate. Landwehr earned a second chance Monday in the Class 4A Rockford Supersectional and the Spartans couldn’t handle the junior right-hander in the rematch. Landwehr pitched a complete game, allowed eight hits and led the Knights to an 8-2 victory at Road Ranger Stadium in Loves Park. Prospect (26-8) earned its … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Near-perfect Resnick no-no’s Ramblers ]]> Glenbrook North skipper Dominic Savino made a call to the bullpen before Thursday’s game and it proved to be a managerial masterstroke. Savino gave closer Peter Resnick his first start of the season against Loyola in the Class 4A Glenbrook South Sectional semifinal. The junior righty with the side-arm motion responded by pitching a no-hitter as the Spartans defeated the Ramblers 3-0. … ]]> Thu, 02 Jun 2011 21:58:11 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/5744839-393/near-perfect-resnick-no-nos-ramblers.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/5744839-393/near-perfect-resnick-no-nos-ramblers.html <![CDATA[ Spartans edge Titans, avenge earlier loss ]]> Brett Synek’s good friends with Mike Reinisch, and that’s why the Glenbrook North’s shortstop’s 6-4-3 double play to end Thursday’s game tasted especially sweet. The Spartans got revenge from an earlier loss to Glenbrook South with the 4-3 victory in the CSL’s unofficial championship in Northbrook. The Titans beat the Spartans 5-2 on May 2, and both teams ended league play 14-2 … ]]> Thu, 19 May 2011 20:25:34 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/5480339-393/spartans-edge-titans-avenge-earlier-loss.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/5480339-393/spartans-edge-titans-avenge-earlier-loss.html <![CDATA[ Shimanovsky nearly perfect for Highland Park ]]> His last outing, Highland Park sophomore left-hander Brett Shimanovsky endured his first rough start of his short varsity career. On Monday against No. 7 Glenbrook North, Shimanovsky was nearly perfect. Pitching in miserably cold and windy conditions, Shimanovsky lost his no-hit bid in the bottom of the seventh but settled for a sterling one-hit 1-0 victory over the host Spartans in a … ]]> Sat, 04 Jun 2011 17:06:01 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/5420068-393/shimanovsky-nearly-perfect-for-highland-park.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/5420068-393/shimanovsky-nearly-perfect-for-highland-park.html <![CDATA[ Glenbrook South earns win behind Harrison’s arm ]]> Glenbrook South right-hander Luke Harrison said he wasn’t feeling his curveball in the bullpen before Thursday’s Central Suburban South game at Niles West. But a funny thing happened when he took the real mound: He began to feel it. Over and over, in fact. And Harrison didn’t stop feeling his curveball until the final out was registered in his masterful complete-game 2-1 … ]]> Sat, 04 Jun 2011 17:06:03 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/5349517-419/glenbrook-south-earns-win-behind-harrisons-arm.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/glenbrooknorth/baseball/5349517-419/glenbrook-south-earns-win-behind-harrisons-arm.html <![CDATA[ Glenbrook North tops Maine West ]]> Glenbrook North 10, Maine West 6: Glenbrook North (22-2) was powered by Brad Ruchman (1-for-3, three-run homer, four RBI), Jason Scholl (2-for-2, two-run homer, double, two RBI, three runs) and Ryan Slawin (2-for-4, two RBI).
