I've just checked it periodically over the past couple months - they aren't terribly active but have some posts that are pretty different from what you'd expect...

Congratulations to Carroll freshman Sierra Grubor for pulling off what is becoming an increasingly rare achievement by being named to two All-CCIW teams in unrelated ball sports in the same school year. She was named to the All-CCIW second team in women's basketball this winter as a guard, and today she was named to the All-CCIW second team in softball as an outfielder.

Esther Miller, a 5'8 forward from downstate Sullivan, has inked a celebratory signing form to play for North Park.

NPU has announced three more players that intend to be Vikings next season. Two will be frosh:

Kaija Davis, 5'7, Lakeland, FL (Victory Christian)
Kendra Jackson, 5'7, Byron, IL (H.S.)

... and the third is a juco transfer, 5'10 rising junior Elizabeth Stengel from Oakton. Originally from Willows Academy in Des Plaines, she spent her freshman season playing JV for Hope. She then transferred back home to Oakton, and averaged 14 ppg and a whopping 14.9 rpg for the Owls. She was second in the entire nation in rebounding, and was named to the NJCAA All-Region first team for Region 4. The Vikings could certainly use another rebounder to complement Josie Summerville and Jayla Johnson, and it looks as though they might've found one.

Esther Miller finished tenth in the state in the 400 meter dash at the IHSA championship meet yesterday. Sounds like the incoming frosh forward for the Vikings has some wheels.
