West Chicago Illinois Sports
The Chicago White Sox have been baseball heroes on the South Side since they took home the coveted MLB World Series trophy in 2005. The team started out as a franchise of the International Hockey League and won the Turner Cup in 1998 and 2000. When they moved to the American Hockey League in the 2001-02 season, they immediately set a mark and won the Calder Cup in 2002.
The Chicago Cubs are no longer the lovable losers, but have won the World Series four times in the last five years. In that time, the team won the MLS Cup championship in its debut year and won the US Open Cup an astonishing four times. The Red Stars have reached the playoffs of the National Women's Soccer League in each of the last three seasons, becoming the first and only team to do so in four consecutive years. After four losses in five games, they ended the regular season with a 4-3 win over the New York Red Bulls.
The win improved the South to 17-10 overall and 9-6 in the DuPage Valley Conference with wins over the Western New York Flash and the Chicago Red Stars, both of whom celebrated victories.
Tai Bibbs started hot for West Aurora with 14 points in the first half and stayed hot to finish with a game-high 34 points. The win came after a February 9 loss to Glenbard East that snapped a four-game winning streak for the Wildcats. Chicago guard Kaitlyn Dillard led the way with 16 points and seven rebounds.
Quinn Ricci scored 17 points and Peter Dolan 12 as the Wildcats improved to 6-2 against the Upstate Eight River. Tai Bibbs and Mike Bibb each scored eight points in a 57-41 loss to Glenbard East. D Nolan had 11 points in the second half in a 60-44 victory over West Aurora on Feb.

The Tigers outscored the Warriors 42-14 in the first quarter and held Waubsonie Valley scoreless in the second quarter, outscoring them 18-0 in the third quarter.
Marcello Marcellaio scored on a 2-2 record at 152 pounds in the sections but did not qualify for the state.
