ROUNDUP: Johnson's double-double leads Barbs to win

Madelyne Johnson had 17 points and 10 rebounds for DeKalb girls basketball in a 40-34 win over Oswego at the Lady Warhawk Tournament. Brittney Patrick added 13 points and five assists for the Barbs, who improved to 4-1 on the season.

"Today was a team effort. We played nine kids and they were all quality minutes," DeKalb coach Chris Davenport said. "... That's huge, that the kids can see it takes everybody, not just the two kids that are doing all the scoring. I'm probably more pleased with this particular win than any win we've had so far this year just for that particular fact."

Schrader places 30th: DeKalb senior Kelsey Schrader finished 30th at the Footlocker Midwest Regional cross country meet at the University of Wisconsin in Kenosha. The 2013 Daily Chronicle Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year finished the 5-kilometer course in 18:29. 


Sycamore participated in the Harlem Invite on Saturday. Kyle Bonnell rolled a 300 game in the second game of the tournament. Trevor Smith averaged 226 over his six games for a 1,356 total while Bonnell totaled a 1,293 over the six games. Brendan Fank scored 1,250 and Alex Burchard had a 1,160.

"The kids bowled extremely well today. I was so proud of these boys today they battled all day, fought as a team all day," Sycamore coach Aaron Williams said. "Kyle's 300 was a great game for him and it lit a fire for our team today. Trevor has been awesome the last two tournaments, I am extremely excited for this team."
