Crete Monee Warriors
FLOSSMOOR | Daylen Hubbard of Bloom Township thought he'd won the 110-meter hurdle final in the Class 3A sectional, having buzzed over the hurdles at Homewood-Flossmoor as fast as he could.
CHICAGO HEIGHTS | It came down to the little things for Crete-Monee en route to capturing the Southland Conference boys track title on Wednesday night.
CRETE | Quentin Nash has a burning desire to showcase his abilities amongst the best track and field athletes Illinois has to offer.
CHICAGO HEIGHTS | Willie Cole called Crete-Monee's 1.5-point victory over Bloom Township to claim the Southland Athletic Conference girls track title on Wednesday the most gratifying of the 18 the Warriors have scored in his 21 years at the helm.
OLYMPIA FIELDS | Officially, it was suspended due to darkness, though there was still daylight left.
CRETE | Crete-Monee girls track coach Willie Cole knows the potential he sees in senior Simone Fears. However, the disappointment in Cole's voice is evident for only one reason.
OAK FOREST | The Crete-Monee girls track team is good, but coach Willie Cole is not going to let the Warriors get too far ahead of themselves.

CHICAGO HEIGHTS | Whenever Bloom Township and Crete-Monee meet on the soccer pitch, there's always plenty at stake.
LANSING | Despite five first-place finishes between them, the consensus between Crete-Monee's Tineja Foy and Latris Daniels was that Wednesday's cold temperatures had a big effect on both times and distances.
CRETE | Moments before her team's contest with Times No. 2 Crete-Monee started Thursday, Kankakee coach Deb Johnston walked in front of the visitors dugout and clapped her hands together once.
CHICAGO HEIGHTS | Not only was the weather very cold Wednesday, with a brisk wind from the northeast making it quite uncomfortable to play baseball, but Marian Catholic’s bats have been cold during a three-game losing streak.
Sue Giannantonio is not looking for a farewell tour. The gifts she's received from coaching Crete-Monee softball over 28 seasons — she's entering No. 29, her last — have come, in abundance, from giving freely of her own passion and commitment to the game.
CHICAGO HEIGHTS | Making the extra pass is not something new to the Bloom Township offense. The Blazing Trojans have been doing it all year long.
CHICAGO HEIGHTS | Samson wouldn't have taken the risk.
CRETE | It was a night when it seemed that everything that needed to happen for Crete-Monee to get a win was happening.
CRETE | Crete-Monee's Mike Nelson certainly took coach Tom Cappel's advice early in Tuesday night's matchup against T.F. South.
