Reichardt Captures Walk-On Position in Illinois Basketball Berens Sets Pace in Michigan State Hockey


Basketball wasn't foremost on Jeff Reichardt's mind after an all-area 1995-96 season as a Schaumburg senior.

In fact, Reichardt said he hardly touched a ball during the summer as he prepared to study pre-med at the University of Illinois.

Then he ran into Hoffman Estates graduate and all-area guard Marty Manning, who mentioned walk-on tryouts. And Reichardt got the basketball bug again.

While Manning didn't try out, Reichardt did and wound up as one of two walk-ons from over 30 candidates to make the team in Lon Kruger's first year as head coach.

Brian Johnson, the 1993 all-area captain from Maine West, is a redshirt junior who made the Illini as a walk-on and is now on scholarship.

Reichardt played three years on the Saxons' varsity for coach Bob Williams. He averaged 14.4 points with a school-record 77 3-pointers as they went to the sectional final.

- Junior guard Ashley Berggren (Barrington) of the University of Illinois was chosen as one of the top 20 players in the nation eligible for the Boost/Naismith College Basketball Player of the Year Award. She was one of four Big Ten players selected.

As a sophomore, Berggren exploded onto the national scene by averaging 24.6 points per game, tops in the Big Ten.

Hockey

Palatine native Sean Berens (Fremd) continues his scoring tear at Michigan State.

Berens, a junior center, leads the team in scoring with 3 goals and 8 assists and has notched at least 1 point in every game.

He tied a career high with 3 points (1 goal, 2 assists) against Boston College.

Berens is tied for fifth in the CCHA in league scoring and tied for sixth in overall scoring.

Cross country

Chris Brown and Nate Westin (Libertyville) have both been major contributors on the nationally-ranked Tennessee team.

Brown was 11th in the Tennessee Quadrangular over four miles in 21:22.12, third in the 8K dual with Indiana (26:22) and 10th in the Virginia Tech Invitational (26:48.01).

Westin placed 17th in the dual with Indiana (27:29), 20th in the Virginia Tech invite (27:31.21) and 22nd in the Tennessee quad at 22:05.85.

- Dan Lam (Palatine) is a junior member of the Kalamazoo (Mich.) College team. Lam covered the 8K course in 26:39 in the Parkside (Wis.) Invitational.

Also for Kalamazoo, Sue Nelson (Prospect) had a 21:44 clocking for a 5K course in the Parkside invite.

Football

Junior linebacker Bill Helzer (Prospect) of North Park College had 15 tackles against both Augustana and North Central and 14 against Elmhurst. Through six games, Helzer had 74 tackles.

- Senior safety Garrett Larkin (Maine West) of Illinois Wesleyan University was named defensive player of the week in the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin for his work against North Central.

In a game against Wheaton College, Larkin threw a touchdown pass to Kyle Garifo (Buffalo Grove) off a fake punt.

- Freshman cornerback Dave Tofilon (Fremd) of Wheaton College intercepted 2 passes and returned one for a 63-yard touchdown against Illinois Wesleyan. He also blocked a punt that led to a TD.

- Terry Filippis (Hoffman Estates) of Carthage College averaged 38.5 for eight punts against Millikin.

Volleyball

Amy Ward (Palatine), senior setter and co-captain, led her University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Titans to a first place finish at the 12th annual Pumpkinball Tournament at North Central College. Ward was named to the all-tournament team and had 165 assists (averaging 12.69 per game), 17 kills, 17 blocks and 3 service aces. The Titans are ranked third in NCAA Division III with a 29-1 record.

- Erica Berggren (Barrington) of South Florida has been named Conference USA player of the week. The senior posted a .611 hitting percentage in three matches against Loyola-Chicago, Marquette and DePaul.
