  • CRETE | For the graduating seniors of the Crete-Monee football team, it has been quite a ride. The seniors leave behind an impressive legacy and an impressive collection of statistics. A 40-7 record over the past four seasons. A 35-consecutive game winning streak, and 30 consecutive Southland Athletic Conference wins. Also, two undefeated regular seasons in 2011 and 2012, including a 14-0 season and state championship in 2012. "These kids had a huge part in us winning our first state championship ever in school history," Warrior head football coach John Konecki said. "They set a bar of excellence that will forever be held up as, this is what we're trying to do as a team and as a class here at Crete-Monee High School." And now, some Warriors will move on. The Warriors will send nine players into the college ranks next season, the most from one graduating class in school history. Rodulfo Antuna will attend St. Xavier University. Deon Benton, Lincoln University. Jonathon Draper, Eastern Illinois. Kevon Love, Fort Scott College. Joshua McCaskel, St. Joseph. Nyles Morgan, Notre Dame University. Shane Ratkovich, Robert Morris University. Chris Slayton, Syracuse University. And Anthony Townsend, Lincoln University.

  • RICHTON PARK | Crete-Monee couldn't contain Bolingbrook's inside game and in the first half, it couldn't control the basketball. The Warriors stumbled out of the gate in falling 81-63 to the Raiders in a first-round game of the McDipper XLI. Times No. 1 Marian Catholic, the defending McDipper champions, and Thornton got off to good starts as both won first-round games handily. Crete-Monee (7-3) committed 10 first-half turnovers and could not keep the bigger Raiders off the boards.

  • CRETE | Track meets aren’t won by 84 points. Not even on a chilly, windy day in late March. Tell that to Bloom Township’s girls team. The Blazing Trojans won the 15th Lady Warrior Invitational by 84 points on Saturday, scoring 165 points to more than double runner-up Rich South’s total of 81. And that was with a disqualification from second place in the 800- meter relay. That would have meant eight more points. The Trojans rolled thanks to depth in sprints, distance and success in the field. Much of it was accomplished by two juniors, Ivory Cassell and Gina Narcisi. Cassell won the 100 in 12.62 seconds, anchored the 400-meter relay to victory, won the triple jump, and came in second in the long jump. Narcisi, eschewing soccer this spring for track to go with her cross country exploits in the fall, scored victories in the 1,600 and 3,200- meter runs. Together, Cassell and Narcisi accounted for 58 points. They and Cassell’s relay teammates would have finished sixth in the competition by themselves, and Bloom would have had enough to win with the rest of its team.
