The Hilltoppers won, 21-7, despite committing four turnovers. WWS, meanwhile, turns the ball over three times while losing for the first time in nearly two seasons.
A few days before Sunday morning’s nationally televised ESPN2 showdown at Red Grange Field opposite Wheaton Warrenville South, Glenbard West coach Chad Hetlet said the Hilltoppers could ill afford to commit turnovers if they wanted to come out on top. Well, Glenbard West coughed up the football four times. Yet the Hilltoppers prevailed, 21-7, and in the process, handed the Tigers their first loss in nearly two years. What happened? Head coach Ron Muhitch’s club experienced difficulty taking care of the football, too, with three turnovers. And when the Tigers did have offensive opportunities, they weren’t able to cash in. Trailing 7-0, the Tigers gained some much-needed momentum just before intermission when senior defensive back Grant …

The No. 1-in-state Tigers out-serve and out-spike the Lions en route to a 25-14, 25-17 victory.
Lyons Township volleyball coach Joann Pyritz already led one Lions team to an upset over a No. 1 state team this school year—but the repeat wasn’t meant to be. Wheaton Warrenville South boys volleyball team (35-2), Illinois' current no. 1 team, will compete against Glenbard East in the sectional semifinals Friday after defeating the LT Lions (22-15), 25-14, 25-17 on Monday night at York High School. “This is a tough sectional,” said Pyritz. “We played pretty well last night [narrowly defeating Waubonsie Valley in three games.] We’d have liked to come out with a little better effort tonight, but that’s just the way it went.” The high-flying Tigers battered down the Lyons serve-receive with powerful jump serves, forcing LT setter Jack Gouty …

Check out which players—and which teams--made the list of our Top 10 sports highlights for 2010.
The city of Wheaton certainly enjoyed a banner year in the world of sports during 2010. Wheaton Patch takes a look back at what we believe are the Top 10 sports highlights of 2010—whether they took place on a neighborhood field or a local gym, in a large stadium …or played out on a national stage. 1. Wheaton Warrenville South: Back-to-back state champs From the opening day of two-a-days in August to the final buzzer at the Class 7A title game at Memorial Stadium in Champaign last month, no team in either of the eight IHSA football classes was more dominant than the Tigers. WWS repeated as 7A champs by knocking off Lake Zurich, 28-17—marking second time in school history that the Tigers have won back-to-back state crowns (the last time: …

But head coach Mike Healy and the Tigers are going about their business until then: To win basketball games.
Once again, Wheaton Warrenville South head coach Mike Healy will have to wait it out until he gets the majority of his 2010-11 squad in uniform. Healy, beginning his ninth and final season as coach—he'll step down after the season and concentrate exclusively on his duties as athletic director—starts the year without ten players. They're all part of the Tigers' undefeated football team that's playing for the Class 7A state title on Saturday. Among those are point guard Reilly O'Toole, center Jason Schuman and guard Travis Kern, all varsity starters in the 2009-10 season. Seven sophomores and a freshman are temporarily on the roster as Healy and the Tigers take part this week in the Warrior Invite, hosted by Wheaton Academy. But Healy points…

The Wheaton South South girls cross country team captured their second consecutive sectional cross country crown while the Wheaton North boys take fourth in tight field.
Wheaton Warrenville South's girls cross country team apparently was on a mission during Saturday's Class 3A sectional meet in St. Charles. Mission accomplished. Led by top-10 individual performances from sophomore McKenna Kiple and juniors Mikayla Kightlinger and Lauren Mordini, the Tigers edged Geneva 49-53 while capturing their second consecutive sectional championship. Admittedly, the goal coming into the race wasn't necessarily to win the meet, according to Tigers coach Rob Harvey. "Whether we were first or fifth, we wanted to qualify for state," said Harvey, who directed the squad to a third-place state finish in 2009. "That was the first thing. "They ran well," added the coach. "It seems like we get a different 1-2-3-4 runner every …

Wheaton South freshman Keisha Clousing took the new state champion, Jasmine Minor, to a tiebreaker in their championship match on Saturday.
This much is certain after Keisha Clousing and Carmel senior Jasmine Minor concluded their nearly 2 ½-hour match for the state girls tennis singles championship on Saturday afternoon: Clousing will be the favorite to win a state title each of the next three years. The freshman from Wheaton Warrenville South gave Minor—36-0 going into their matchup—all she could handle before Minor prevailed 6-3, 7-6 (7-5). In the tiebreaker, Clousing fought back from match point three times, but Minor finally smashed a backhand past her to secure the set and the state crown. Minor, who finished third in the state as a sophomore in '08 but didn't play for Carmel last year so she could compete in national tourneys, handed Clousing (35-2) her second loss of …
