Lockport trailed 17-5 at halftime. The win gives them an 11-13 overall record, 2-6 in SouthWest Suburban Blue. basketball From Page 45 “They gave me some flowers, and I didn’t expect that,” Kucharski said. “That was really nice. We all wanted the seniors to get in, and coach [Kelly] said how we wanted everyone to play.” Five of the Porter seniors started and played most of the first quarter. Five of them ended up scoring, including Schmutzler, Janssen, Kennedy and Ledbetter in the fourth quarter. Kucharski (8 points, 7 rebounds) led the Porters. Martin credited Kelly and Lockport. “Dan does a great job, and it was a special night for their seniors,” Martin said. “[Kelly] has turned it around here.” In the postseason this week, the Griffins — who hold out hope that junior forward Lauren Hunter (high left ankle sprain) might return to the lineup — opened up with Richards Tuesday, Feb. 14, in the Stagg Regional. Lockport is the No. 10 seed in the Aurora East Sectional. The Porters played host to No. 7-seeded Plainfield East Tuesday, Feb. 14. If Lockport won that contest, it would likely play No. 2-seeded Oswego East Thursday, Feb. 16, at 7 p.m. for the regional title. Athlete of the Week 10 Questions with Izzy Van Kuiken Izzy Van Kuiken is a senior at Lockport Township High School. How did you start cheerleading? I started in sixth grade because my big sister [Jessie] was always a cheerleader, and I just looked up to her. She got me into it. What do you like about it? I love going to competitions and just competing in front of such big crowds of people. It just gives me a feeling I can’t describe. Speaking of big crowds, what was the state meet like? Being a senior, it was sad because it was the last time I’m ever going to go out there. But it was happy because I loved spending it with my team and coach. Do you have pre-competition rituals? Usually, I listen to music, and I always eat the same thing: pretzels and a banana. What is your favorite memory from your time with the Porters? My sophomore year, we won sectionals, and we got second at state. That’s definitely one of my favorite memories because we were just such a good team, and winning sectionals was such a good feeling. Who is your role model? Both my parents [mother, Lisa; father, Jerry] I would consider my role models because they always encourage me to do my best, and they’re just so hard working. If you could have any superpower, what would it be? I think I’d want to be able to mind read. I think it’d be cool to see what other people are thinking. When you are not in school or cheering, what do you do for fun? I hangout with my family and my friends. Photo submitted I love to go camping and just go to the beach. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? Bora Bora. It just looks really pretty there, and I’ve always wanted to go there. What are your plans for after graduation? I plan on becoming a teacher, probably a math teacher. Interview by Assistant Editor Erin Redmond This Week In...
