After six years as Illiana Christian's girls basketball coach, Dave Bosman says he is stepping down.

Bosman, who has two young children, said he wants to spend more time with his family.

He said he enjoyed coaching the program and the players. He also said he would still be involved in Illiana athletics.

Drop-down dimes: Occasionally, Marian Catholic star Tyler Ulis seems to get easy assists, because opposing teams forget to cover Spartans teammate John Oliver.

Mostly, though, it's because they're trying extra hard to cover Ulis.

Witness Tuesday's regional semifinal win over Plainfield Central, when the majority of Oliver's six field goals (on the way to 14 points) were layups from the left block, fed by Ulis.

"They were so concerned with the help defense that the drop-down was there," Marian coach Mike Taylor said.

Ulis finished with 10 assists.

"We've played together so long, John just knows I'm going to jump in the air and drop it off to him," Ulis said.

Cifelli stands alone: Marian Catholic junior diver Joey Cifelli became the first Spartans boys swimmer/diver to win a state title when he accomplished the feat Saturday at the IHSA finals in Evanston.

Cable takes over: Allison Cable is Illiana Christian's new softball coach. She takes over for Mike Oppenhuis, who stepped down.

Academic honors: Mount Carmel's Dan O'Keefe was named to the IHSA's academic all-state team.

Illinois Lutheran's Jacob Heyn earned honorable mention.

Softball clinic: The Future Rebels Softball Clinic will be March 15 at T.F. South.

It is for players aged 6 to 10, who will meet from noon to 1:30 p.m., and for players aged 11 to 13, who will meet from 2 to 3:30 p.m. The cost is $25. Instruction will be given on all aspects of softball.

For details, contact coach Jamie Arundel at (708) 585-2145 or jarundel@tfd215.org.

Baseball clinic: The Future Rebels Baseball Clinic will be held for age groups 6 to 10 and 11 to 14 from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday at T.F. South. Registration will begin at 2:30 p.m. Cost is $30. For details, contact Matt Tiffy at (708) 585-9702 or mtiffy@tfd215.org.
