That was then. On Saturday, the 13th-seeded Giants returned the favor in a huge way, thanks to a four-run outburst in the eighth inning, stunning top-seed Mundelein, 7-3, for the IHSA Class 4A Glenbrook South sectional baseball title. The win put an … ]]> Sat, 02 Jun 2012 18:39:11 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/12938444-393/baseball-highland-park-upsets-top-seeded-mundelein-in-extra-innings.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/12938444-393/baseball-highland-park-upsets-top-seeded-mundelein-in-extra-innings.html <![CDATA[ Baseball: Bryan Wiener delivers, Mundelein edges Palatine ]]>
Mundelein senior center fielder Bryan Wiener certainly picked a good time for his team’s first walk-off hit of the season. His bases-loaded, two-out game-winning single up the middle — on a 2-2 pitch from Bradley University recruit Eric Schuermann — propelled the top-seeded Mustangs to a dramatic 3-2 win in Wednesday’s IHSA Class 4A Glenbrook South sectional semifinal. Wiener fouled off three … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Baseball: Mundelein blanks Vernon Hills for North Suburban title ]]> All season long, Mundelein senior right-hander Matt Langlie has baffled opposing hitters, despite barely reaching the low 80s on the radar gun. On Thursday night, in the biggest game of his high school career, he did it yet again. Langlie’s seven shutout innings propelled the No. 5 Mustangs to an 8-0 win over host and No. 20 Vernon Hills — but more … ]]> Thu, 17 May 2012 23:14:00 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/12607936-393/baseball-mundelein-blanks-vernon-hills-for-north-suburban-title.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/12607936-393/baseball-mundelein-blanks-vernon-hills-for-north-suburban-title.html <![CDATA[ Baseball: Dar Townsend dominant; Ryan Borucki on comeback trail ]]>
Libertyville sent two messages to the area’s best club on Wednesday: First message: the North Suburban Lake race isn’t over, as Libertyville’s 5-3 win over Mundelein made the Wildcats 6-2 in the division (15-8 overall) while the Mustangs are 7-1 and 21-4. Second message: should the teams meet down the road in the Class 4A Glenbrook South Sectional, the Cats aren’t going … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Baseball: Nick Coutre a rock in leadoff spot for Libertyville ]]>
Libertyville center fielder Nick Coutre’s style as a leadoff hitter may differ from what some teams consider prototypical, but as far as the Wildcats are concerned, he’s the man for the job. There’s a huge reason, after all, that the 5-foot-8, 150-pound senior — who bats left-handed but throws righty — signed a letter of intent to play NCAA Division I baseball … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Baseball: Mundelein’s Jared Mandel blanks Warren ]]>
Southpaw Jared Mandel scattered three hits over five shutout innings, No. 7 Mundelein played errorless ball and the Mustangs pounded out 10 safeties in a 10-0 blowout of host Warren on Tuesday in a North Suburban Lake baseball game. Mandel (5-1) fanned six and didn’t walk a better as the winners improved to 17-2 overall and 5-0 in the division. “We’re playing … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Baseball: Back-to-back no-hitters for Mundelein’s Ryan Borucki, Matt Langlie ]]> Realistically, a high-school baseball team can expect to be part of a no-hit game once a season ... usually a five-inning rout over an overmatched foe. But on Wednesday in downstate Marion, Mundelein’s baseball team was part of something truly special, as pitchers Ryan Borucki and Matt Langlie pitched no-hitters in back-to-back games. Borucki went seven innings, fanning 13, in a 7-0 … ]]> Fri, 30 Mar 2012 13:29:18 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/11607057-393/baseball-back-to-back-no-hitters-for-mundeleins-ryan-borucki-matt-langlie.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/11607057-393/baseball-back-to-back-no-hitters-for-mundeleins-ryan-borucki-matt-langlie.html <![CDATA[ History, talent in the air at Double Duty Classic ]]>
Last Saturday, Ryan Borucki was in the crowd watching the White Sox take on the Washington Nationals at U.S. Cellular Field. Little did he realize that just a few days later, he’d be down on the field playing. After getting an invitation Monday to pitch in the Double Duty Classic, there Borucki was Wednesday afternoon, battling nerves and some of the top … ]]>

<![CDATA[ Palatine routs Mundelein in regional final ]]> Dan Haze found a simple way to silence his critics. The Palatine centerfielder blasted a grand slam in the fourth inning to spark the Pirates to 15-4 rout of top-seeded Mundelein during Saturday’s IHSA Class 4A Barrington Regional final. Haze atoned for a missed opportunity in the first inning. “I came up with the bases loaded in the first, and I didn’t … ]]> Sat, 28 May 2011 16:19:29 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/5648823-393/palatine-routs-mundelein-in-regional-final.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/5648823-393/palatine-routs-mundelein-in-regional-final.html <![CDATA[ Stevenson capitalizes on big inning ]]> Through the first three innings against No. 7 Stevenson, it looked like No. 10 Mundelein had regained its swag – the same swag that led the Mustangs to 20 consecutive wins to open the season. Then the fourth inning came – and seemingly never went. Eight consecutive batters reached base for Stevenson in the fourth inning, enabling the Patriots to erase an … ]]> Mon, 09 May 2011 20:22:02 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/5280398-393/stevenson-capitalizes-on-big-inning.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/5280398-393/stevenson-capitalizes-on-big-inning.html <![CDATA[ Stevenson downs top-ranked Mundelein ]]> As top-ranked Mundelein opened the season winning its first 20 games, the Mustangs deservedly hogged the headlines. With much less fanfare, however, No. 10 Stevenson was putting together another strong season. Not that anyone was noticing. Notice served. Perennial power Stevenson seized control of the tough North Suburban Lake Conference with a scrappy 6-2 victory over a swooning Mundelein club that has … ]]> Sat, 07 May 2011 19:16:26 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/5243455-393/stevenson-downs-top-ranked-mundelein.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/5243455-393/stevenson-downs-top-ranked-mundelein.html <![CDATA[ Mundelein downs Lake Forest ]]> Mundelein 12, Lake Forest 5: Dante Martinez picked up the win on the mound for No. 2 Mundelein (13-0).

The Mustangs proved it once again Wednesday, as they hammered visiting Lake Zurich 10-0 in six innings in a North Suburban Lake game. In the critical two-game conference series, Mundelein (10-0, 2-0) outscored Lake Zurich (2-6, … ]]> Sat, 09 Apr 2011 19:38:00 CST http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/4716174-393/mundelein-continues-surprising-tear.html http://highschoolsports.suntimes.com/schools/mundelein/baseball/4716174-393/mundelein-continues-surprising-tear.html <![CDATA[ Mundelein tops Westminster Christian ]]> Mundelein 10, Westminster Christian 3: Bryan Wiener (1-0) struck out six to earn the win for Mundelein (7-0).
