The Deerfield graduate scored the Wildcats’ first goal on an one-touch shot from the corner of the 18-yard box in the 15th minute. Calistri then assisted on the second Northwestern goal less than five minutes later. The freshman recorded two shots and one shot on goal.
- Notre Dame wideout DaVaris Daniels, a sophomore from Vernon Hills, was the leading receiver in his team’s 41-3 rout of Miami on Oct. 6 at Solider Field in Chicago. The Vernon Hills alumnus finished with three catches for 48 yards.
Then in Notre Dame’s 20-13 overtime win against No. 17 Stanford Saturday, Daniels added two more catches for 24 yards, including a crucial 9-yard grab in overtime.
- River Forest native Stephen Golz, a freshman forward for the Wheaton College men’s soccer team, notched the game-winning goal in the Thunder’s 4-3 double overtime victory against North Central College on Oct. 10 in Naperville.
The goal came in the 109th minute. The Oak Park-River Forest graduate finished the match with three shots and two shots on goal. The goal was Golz’s second of the season.
He ranks second on the team with five points.
- Hinsdale Central alumna and Michigan women’s volleyball player Ally Davis finished with nine kills, good for second on the team, in the Wolverine’s 3-0 win against Northwestern on Saturday in Ann Arbor. The freshman outside hitter also led the Wolverines in attack percentage (.400).
Davis has 47 kills, and a .275 attack percentage through 22 games.
- Glenview native Sean Progar was instrumental in his Northern Illinois football team’s dismantling of Buffalo on Saturday in DeKalb. The redshirt senior defensive end and Glenbrook South alumnus was all over the field, recording four tackles, a tackle for loss, a broken up pass and a sack.
