STC Faces New Trier in State Semis Tonight


Byline: Daily Herald Reports

The St. Charles lacrosse team will take its 16-1 record and No. 3 seed into the state semifinals tonight when they travel to Winnetka to take on two-time defending state champion New Trier.

The semifinal will be at New Trier's west campus at 5:30 p.m. New Trier handed St. Charles its only loss this year.

Of the four teams remaining in the state tournament, three have combined for 31 appearances in the championship game since 1988 and those same three have combined for 17 championships (Loyola Academy 8, Lake Forest 5 and New Trier 4).

The fourth team, St. Charles, had never won a playoff game until this year.

The two winners of tonight's semifinals meet in the championship game Saturday at Toyota Park.

Football

Two Bulldogs headed to Augustana: Batavia's Brandon Holl and Alex Schroeder will remain teammates at Augustana.

They both will be part of the Vikings' nationally ranked football program.

Holl, a 6-foot-1, 238-pound fullback and linebacker, enjoyed a terrific career under head coach Mike Gaspari. He was named "Most Valuable Player" and also served as a captain in his senior season. Holl was a two-year letter winner and also received two varsity letters in basketball under coach Jim Roberts.

He led the team with 46 catches and scored 11 touchdowns. Holl also averaged 4.0 yards per rushing attempt. As a linebacker, he compiled 59 tackles in just five and a half games and was the team's leading tackler in the state championship game. He turned in a great all around performance in the final contest, making 6 catches, 11 tackles, 1 sack, a forced fumble, fumble recovery, and interception.

A member of the National Honor Society, Holl is the son of Blair Holl of North Aurora. He is anticipating a major in business administration at Augustana.

Schroeder was a 5-10, 165-pound quarterback. He was a captain and member of the Western Sun Conference all-conference team as a senior.

He earned two varsity letters and a sophomore letter in football, two varsity letters in track, and a sophomore letter in baseball. Schroeder was also a track captain.

He completed 119 of 210 passes for 1,964 yards and 18 touchdowns. He was also a force on the ground, rushing for 661 yards and 7 touchdowns on 103 attempts.

A member of the honor roll, Alex is the son of Todd and Kathi Schroeder of Batavia. He is anticipating a major in business administration and finance at Augustana.

They will be joining an Augustana program that went 7-3 overall in 2006 and tied for the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin championship with a 6-1 league record. It was the 21st CCIW title in school history for Augustana. The Vikings currently have a streak of 28 consecutive winning seasons.

Baseball

Phillies sign German: Former Northern Illinois pitcher Matt German (Marmion) inked a professional baseball contract with the Philadelphia Phillies organization.

As a fifth-year senior, German was eligible to sign professionally ahead of the MLB Amateur Draft in June.

German, who finished his career as NIU's save leader with 26 and ranked second on the Mid-American Conference career list, won or saved 31 of the Huskies' 57 victories over the past two seasons. During his senior year, German went 5-2 with 13 saves and a 1.76 ERA while leading the league in appearances with 34. The left- hander was a unanimous first-team All-MAC selection and earned MAC West Pitcher of the Week honors twice during the season. …
