Starting off the week with a potentially demoralizing 102-68 loss to Morton on Tuesday, the Cyclones were able to bounce back with a 93-85 win vs Waubonsee Community College on Thursday.

Blowout losses are something the team has prepared to learn from, according to sophomore Ethan Campagna. “On Thursday we learned from Tuesday and it brought us closer together,” he said. “We played more as a team and played at our own pace.”

The men were able to step up on offense to keep up with the offensive output of Waubonsee with a collective effort of scoring throughout the team. Isiah Burd led the team with 24 points, with Kobe Adams just behind him with 18 points.

With a 14-9 record (5-5 in conference), the Cyclones hope to build on their success against Elgin Community College with home advantage on Tuesday and at McHenry County College on Thursday.

Women’s Basketball: Hard-fought week ends with success

The women’s basketball team had quite the week. Kicking off the week, the team suffered an 89-62 loss to Morton College and a nail biting 90-83 loss to Waubonsee Community College.

The team did, however, have a bounceback win on Saturday with a 75-55 game against College of Lake County.

After two tough losses in a row, sophomore Maggie Manthey trusted the team’s confidence and resiliency to fuel a well-played game on Saturday.

“I think we played more as a team today.” Manthey said, “We were feeding off of each other’s energy.”

Pushing towards a turnaround of the current 10-12 record (3-5 in conference), the Cyclones have three games this week with two at home and one away at McHenry County College.

Baseball: Practice begins after hardworking off-season

Starting off practice in anticipation of an exciting season, sophomore Colin Bulger is ready to get the season started and show off the work the team has put in during off-season workouts. Beginning with a regimen of six days a week, the Cyclones are working tirelessly to improve before the first game on Feb 25.

“Holding each other accountable these next few weeks will be key as we are nowhere close to our potential as a team,” Bulger said.”Once we key together some core elements, we are ready to compete against anybody.”

The Cyclones will spend the next few weeks preparing for their first series of the year.
