Summit Hill School District 161 Board of Education

Park district pact tweaked,

lunch program to continue

Megann Horstead

Freelance Reporter

Summit Hill School District

161 revised some aspects

of its agreement with

the Frankfort Square Park

District in order for the two

entities to continue sharing

services.

In a unanimous vote,

Summit Hill officials authorized

a set of revisions

to the shared services pact,

including some to insurance

and maintenance.

Board President Rich

Marron said that the main

drivers for the adjustment

was the park district’s insurance

cost.

“Over the past 12-18

months, the park district has

had significant claims with

their insurance carrier, and

their insurance costs have

more than doubled for liability

insurance,” Marron

said.

Much like the school district,

the park district participates

in a cooperative

to purchase insurance. That

arrangement, Marron said,

is extremely rigid for park

districts.

“One of the items that

[the cooperative takes] issue

with is the park district

providing services offhours

for other entities,” he

said. “That would call into

question mainly the snow

plowing because that happens

over the evening.”

Other changes involved

maintaining and insuring

large vehicles for snow removal,

cleaning up insurance

contractual language,

clarifying hiring practices

and regulating overnight

work performed by staff.

The park district calculated

their costs for providing

services to Summit Hill and

sought an informal bid for

snow removal from Bill’s

Landscaping, which is currently

under contract to

perform landscaping for the

school district. The contract

would cost $15,000 per

year, and on average park

district pays just less than

$25,000 per year for snow

removal.

However, Marron said

that Summit Hill does not

have a foreman on staff

overnight to determine if

schools will close, meaning

the school district would

Lincoln-Way schools listed on nude photo site

Kirsten Onsgard, Editor

Three Lincoln-Way Community

High School District

210 schools are listed on a

site that propagates anonymous

image sharing, often

of nude photographs, according

to reports.

The site is known for

hosting illegally obtained

nude photographs, includes

online threads for the soliciting

and spreading of photographs

of former students

at 67 Chicago-area high

schools, including Lincoln-

Way North, Central and

West, according to a report

by NBC 5 Chicago.

The specific site hosted

the cache of hundreds

of nude celebrity photos

hacked from iCloud and

leaked in 2014.

Some of the photos shared

on the site include underage

Chicago-area women, according

to the report.

District 210 Spokeswoman

Taryn Atwell said the

district is aware of the story

but did not personally confirm

that the three schools

were listed.

The district is taking no

action, she said, because

the site does not have do

with Lincoln-Way other

than how the photographs

are organized, she said. In

part, the site uses schools

as a means for users to

search for specific photos

or women by graduating

class. The problem is a

legal issue, she said, and

“doesn’t have to do with the

school.”

According to the district’s

Computer and Technology

Acceptable Use Policy,

“inappropriate content —

which includes “obscene

material and any software

designed to facilitate the

bypass of Lincoln-Way

electronic security systems”

— may not be on personal

electronic devices while on

school grounds. Violation

could include a revocation

of computer privileges, suspension

or recommendation

for expulsion.

The district is not reaching

out to community

members, but Atwell said

she is aware that the NBC

5 Chicago story has been

shared among Lincoln-Way

residents in social media

groups.

Ret. Marine Marty Delismon remembers those he served with during Frankfort’s Memorial

Day Ceremony Monday, May 29. Photos by Geoff Stellfox/22nd Century Media

Memorial Day honors

veterans and the fallen

Brenden Moore

Freelance Reporter

When Frankfort resident

and U.S. Navy veteran Jim

Woods came home from

Vietnam, he felt forgotten

by the country he had

served, that the sacrifices of

he and his comrades were

not fully appreciated.

“We were forgotten

about, spit on or just basically

ignored,” Woods said.

“I came home from Vietnam,

went to work, and forgot

about it for 30 years.”

But today, things are different

— and better — as

Vietnam has been etched

into history and today’s

emerging threats have renewed

the appreciation

of the sacrifice of service

members, Woods, now an

engineer, said.

“The community comes

together, and I think the

The Hickory Creek Middle School band performs patriotic songs including "You're a Grand Old Flag" and the national

anthem during the ceremony.

Frankfort Mayor Jim Holland, a Coast Guard veteran, thanks members of the armed services.

community today is much

more about honoring the veterans

than before,” Woods

said.

There was a patriotic sentiment

in the air as hundreds

of community members and

several veterans packed

Breidert Green in Frankfort

to honor fallen service

members in the Village’s

annual Memorial Day service.

The hour-long event, organized

by the Frankfort

VFW Post 1493, featured

remarks from Mayor Jim

Holland; a wreath-laying

ceremony; the naming of

fallen service members

from the area; the lowering

of the American flag

to half staff; a 21-gun salute;

and the Hickory Creek

Middle School band playing

patriotic tunes from the

“Star-Spangled Banner” to

“Battle Hymn of the Republic”

to “You’re a Grand Old

Flag."

Holland, speaking both

as mayor and as a veteran

of the Coast Guard, recalled

the roots of Memorial Day

while thanking military

men and women for their

service.

“Our country just would

not be the great nation that

it is without the men and

women of our armed forces,”

Holland said. “The sacrifice

the comforts of home,

the comforts of family to

protect and defend the United

States. Today, we honor

deceased veterans and we

thank the men and women

who currently serve in the

armed forces.”

Veterans from as far back

as World War II to service

members currently enlisted

participated after swapping

stories before the ceremony

began.

Standing next to Woods,

Vietnam veteran and Marine

Stanley Tylinski joked,

“You guys were the Navy,

I was the Marine Corp. I’d

just like to say thanks for

the ride.”

Woods, smiling back,

said, “You’re welcome. It

was our pleasure.”

Fellow Navy veteran Valentino

Sapretti, who fought

in the Pacific Theater in

WWII, joked that when he

got to Hawaii, he was so

young he couldn’t even buy

a drink.

Though the veterans enjoyed

one another’s company

and the sunny spring day,

many of their friends didn’t

make it home.

“I just thank the Lord I’m

still here because all my

buddies are in the Pacific

Ocean,” Sapretti, now 91,

said.

Frankfort Township residents

Barbara Griffith and

Marie Lindemulder enjoyed

the ceremony, deciding

to attend there versus

the ceremony at Abraham

Lincoln National Cemetery

in Elwood. Griffith’s late

husband William and Lindemulder’s

late husband

John, both Army veterans

interred at the cemetery,

were among the more than

400 named during the service.

“This is very nice,”

Griffith said. “It’s a really

nice community service

with the community coming

together. The neighbors, the

band and everything.”

Lindemulder’s two grandsons

are active duty service

members, with one leaving

for South Korea in June and

the other, a linguist studying

Arabic, going over to

Afghanistan in September.

She said this “absolutely”

makes it more crucial to

honor the sacrifice of those

who came before.

Following the ceremony,

the VFW conducted three

more 21-gun salutes: one

at Pleasant Hill Cemetery,

one at Frankfort Cemetery

and another at the Frankfort

Township office at U.S.

Route 30 and Wolf Road.

When asked what the day

meant to him, Woods kept

it simple: “It’s honoring the

loss of my comrades, both

since the war and during the

war.”

Village of Frankfort to host annual Arts Fair

Staff report

The Village of Frankfort is

pleased to announce its 13th

annual Fine Arts Fair will be

held on Saturday, June 17, at

Breidert Green in downtown

Frankfort. The hours of the

art fair will be 10 a.m.-3:00

p.m. Introduced in 2004,

the Fine Arts Fair has rapidly

grown to be a favorite

among the many community

events held in Frankfort. In

case of rain, the event will

be held at Founders Center

(gym) at 140 Oak Street in

Frankfort.

Premier artists, primarily

from Frankfort and the

Lincoln-Way area, will be

able to sell, display and/or

demo their original work on

the green. The list of participating

artists continues to

increase each year. Works of

art ranging from oils, watercolor,

pottery and calligraphy

are featured. The artists are

also available to talk about

their work during the fair.

Relaxing entertainment

will be provided by Lily

Bowen, who will perform

soothing music on a harp

from 10 a.m.-noon, and Brandon

Reyes, who will perform

smooth jazz on a vibraphone

from 12:30 p.m.-2:30 p.m.

“The Fine Arts Fair continues

to be a crowd favorite and

a great showcase for our local

artistic talent. It also provides

an opportunity for visitors to

enjoy our downtown area,

its shops and restaurants,”

Mayor Jim Holland said in a

statement.

Further information is available

at the Village of Frankfort

website www.village

Upgrades could be in the works for Founders Community Center

Megann Horstead

Freelance Reporter

Upgrades could be in store

for the Founders Community

Center pending further review

and action by members

of the Frankfort Park District

Board of Commissioners.

At an April 18 special

meeting, Park District officials

approved a pre-design

contract with William Architects.

That measure will help

in determining what, if any,

improvements can be made

within the footprint of the

community center.

Frankfort Park District executive

director Gina Hassett

said officials are cognizant

of the community’s concerns

and stressed that officials intend

to find a solution to the

challenges posed to the facility.

“For the past five years,

the district has been evaluating

ways to improve the

indoor space available for

the residents,” she said. “In

2016, the Park District surveyed

the community to see

if there was support to construct

a 50,000-square-foot

recreation center. There was

positive feedback regarding

the community center, but

there was significant concerns

given the recent closing

of Lincoln Way North

High School.”

Plans to go out to referendum

seeking added funding

for Founders Community

Center upgrades were

shelved last fall.

Park District records show

that residents expressed they

were unwilling to support a

$13.1 million referendum

project “based on information

gathered at multiple

community outreach meetings,

a public opinion survey

sent to over 4,000 households,

and a recommendation

received from a citizens

task force.”

The Frankfort Park District

Board of Commissioners

voted 7-0 to reject the

idea of placing a referendum

question on the ballot to

gauge community interest in

funding the construction of a

community recreation center.

Hassett said the Park

Board listened to the community

and decided not to

move forward with the project.

The District continues

to evaluate ways to improve

the existing facility, she said.

“The evaluation of the

Founders Center will determine

if the current space

could be re-configured to

better serve existing programs

and allow for growth

in district programs,” Hassett

said. “If the stage and

bleachers were removed, it

may allow for two practice

gyms and additional space

for programs or a small fitness

center. The idea is that

space would be re-configured

in the existing footprint.

The review is just that

— a ‘review’ of the local

zoning and building code to

see what, if anything, can be

restructured at the Founders

Center.”

The review, which was

approved by the Park Board,

consists of a zoning study,

building code check, building

space program and site

diagrams. This process could

take six to nine months.

“The Park Board realizes

that Founders Center is a

neighborhood setting, and

if it is feasible to remodel

the space, it is important to

be aware of the impact on

the neighbors,” Hassett said.

“This is where it is key to

conduct a review which will

determine what is permitted

but also as to what makes

sense as the goal would

be limit the impact on the

neighbors.”

The 32,000-square-foot

site now housing the Founders

Community Center was

originally designed to be

a school in the 1940s, with

additions constructed in the

late 1950s and 1960s.

Typically, Park District

staff will utilize the classrooms

for programs and

meeting space. A multipurpose

room is available for

programs and rental space.

It also comes equipped with

space for a gym, stage and

bleachers.

“The Park District has a

wonderful asset, which is the

Founders Center,” Hassett

said. “It is centrally located

near the downtown.”

Hassett said the facility

has its share of challenges,

too.

“In addition to the Founders

Center, the Frankfort Park

District utilizes the grade

schools and high school

gyms for programs and

leagues,” she said. “However,

at times, there is a need

for additional gym space

outside of what is available

to fill the district needs. Gym

space at the high school is

limited to after high school

sports, and with the closing

of North, the school's needs

have grown.”

If findings from the review

warrant further exploration,

Park District officials will

need Phase II work to begin

studying existing conditions,

conceptual drawings, exterior

elevations, exterior 3-D

images and cost estimate.

Dozens of local students

embark on college tour

Submitted by the South

Suburban Chicago Chapter

of Jack and Jill, Inc.

The South Suburban Chicago

Chapter of Jack and

Jill, Inc. provided 32 high

school students with an educational

experience. From

March 27-April 1 students

from Lincoln-Way East and

other local high schools attended

a college tour that

launched them from Illinois

to the southeast coast of our

nation.

The scholars visited the

campuses of Georgia Tech,

Emory University, Morehouse

College, Spelman

College, Clark University,

Tuskegee University, Tulane

University, Loyola

University, Xavier University

and Dillard University.

The experience provided

the college-bound students

with the opportunity to experience

on-site college

tours, speak firsthand to

higher education admissions

counselors and experience

the culture of the cities

of the various colleges/

universities.

The experience was rewarding,

but it was especially

a success for the students

that were accepted to

some of the colleges/universities

on the spot.

The Jack and Jill, South

Suburban Chicago Chapter

(JJSSCC) College Tour,

which has now occurred two

years in a row and won a regional

award last year, is an

option for any college-bound

student, but the organization

opened the door to those that

would not be able to attend

due to the cost by allocating

space for scholarship students.

Due to the fundraising

efforts of JJSSCC, three students

were able to attend this

year’s tour at no cost to their

parents.

Frankfort students involved

in the trip included

Troy and Trenton Lyke,

Madison and Matthew Haliman,

Malaika Stokes, Jordan

Lott, Cambrii Alexander

and Sydney Tyler.

Jack and Jill of America is

a membership organization

of mothers with children

ages 2-19 dedicated to nurturing

future African-American

leaders by strengthening

children through leadership

development, volunteer service,

philanthropic giving

and civic duty. The specific

aims of the organization are

to create a medium of contact

Standout Student

Sponsored by Marquette Bank

Dominic Tagler, Lincoln-Way

East junior

Dominic Tagler chosen as this week’s Standout

Student for his academic excellence.

What is one essential you must have when

studying and why?

One essential that I must have when studying

is my office and some music because I

need a quiet, comfortable environment to

study and because the music helps me maintain

my train of thought.

What do you like to do when not in school or

studying?

When not in school or studying, I like to

spend time with friends and family, watch

Netflix and pursue my interest in music.

What is your dream job and why?

I hope to become a doctor because ever

since I was young, I have been in the emergency

room countless times for severe croup

or asthma attacks. I will never forget the doctors

who saved my life, and I hope that one

day I can do the same.

What is one thing people don’t know about

you?

One thing that many people don’t know

about me is my love of music and my involvement

in the music department.

Whom do you look up to and why?

I look up to my older brother, because it

seems like whenever I have to take the next

big step in my life, he has already paved the

way for me.

Who is your favorite teacher and why?

I would have a difficult time choosing just

one. What I have learned is that East has its

reputation because of the great teachers at all

levels.

What is your favorite class and why?

AP psychology was the best class of my

entire high school career. The material is

fascinating and it’s incredible to learn how

much of it applies to daily life.

Photo submitted

What is one thing that stands out about

your school?

My school is unique because it is actually

made up of two schools. But I’m not referring

to the division. What I’m referring to,

and what sets Lincoln-Way East apart from

other schools, is the connection. Recently,

our flexible and versatile student body was

able to merge the histories and traditions of

two distinct schools. We successfully created

a cohesive environment and gained so many

life-changing opportunities, and that overcoming

of adversity makes me so proud to

be a member of the school district.

If you could change one thing about school,

what would it be?

If I could change one thing about school, I

would make pep assemblies more lively and

energetic. A pep assembly is a great way to

demonstrate school spirit and pride, and I

think that the student body has much more

potential than what we display.

What is your favorite thing to eat in the

cafeteria?

Although I usually bring lunch from home,

nothing can improve my day like a chocolate

chip cookie from the cafeteria.

What is your best memory from school?

Nothing has been quite as memorable as

standing on the field of Lucas Oil Stadium

as a member of the Lincoln-Way Marching

Band and performing our show.

Standout Student is weekly feature in The Station.

Nominations come from Frankfort schools.

Rocky and Murphy are

go off-leash at parks in the forest preserves. Rocky is

a 10-year-old beagle and English bulldog — commonly

called a “beabull” — and Murphy is a 13-year-old

is often to the ground looking for new scents and

hopefully they will find a scrap of food that their owners

have unintentionally dropped. They are both looking

NL geography teacher who died

receives award

Donald Tolen may have died

months ago, but his contributions

to the Illinois Geographical Society

were never forgotten.

Tolen received the 2017 Distinguished

Geographer Award for his

efforts with the organization for

close to three decades before he

succumbed to stomach cancer in

November 2016 — after a battle

of more than three years. His wife,

Phillys, daughter Dianna Perrico

and friends traveled to Champaign

to receive the award on his behalf

in late April, during the IGS annual

conference.

IGS member Ani Thompson-

Smith presented the award and

opened her speech by saying it

was bittersweet. The longtime

New Lenox resident attended the

annual conference for 28 consecutive

years before being too ill to attend

in 2016.

“He was known by most IGS

members, and if one were unknown

this gentleman would typically

introduce himself first and

start a conversation,” Smith said in

her speech.

IGS member and Tolen’s longtime

friend Joseph Kubal said

Tolen represented everything the

Distinguished Geographer Award

stood for. It is given to prominent

geographers in the organization

who have given up themselves

and have been dedicated to promoting

geography. Kubal was

part of the decision process for

the award. Although this award is

given annually, he viewed Tolen’s

recognition as a lifetime achievement

award.

“It was a longstanding contribution,

where he was always there to

help and he helped promote geography

any way he could, from

writing political letters to teaching

students and helping out at meetings,”

Kubal said.

FROM THE ORLAND PARK PRAIRIE

The Bridge’s annual open house to

return June 3

Once a year, The Bridge Teen

Center opens its doors to community

members who are curious

about the services it offers to teens.

And this weekend marks 2017’s

open house for the facility.

For those not in the know, The

Bridge opened in 2010 and has

steadily grown not only in space

but in the variety of free programs

it offers.

“There is something like

30,000 different teenagers within

five miles of The Bridge Teen

Center, and we haven’t event

scratched the surface,” co-founder

Rob Steinmetz said. “Our goal

is just to make sure that as many

families as possible know that

we’re here, know that what we

do is free and that there is no cost

to them.”

The Bridge Teen Center is to

host a Community Open House

from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday,

June 3, for area residents who do

not currently know about what the

facility offers, and teens who are

old enough to sign up events.

The twofold event is meant to

not only give more information

about what services the center offers,

but also give an important inside

look.

TLC Animal Shelter founder preps

for fundraisers

This summer may be one of the

busiest for Janine Carter.

Carter, one of the founders and

the coordinator of TLC Animal

Shelter, is gearing up for fundraisers

to benefit the four-legged

friends at the Homer Glen-based

organization. The shelter has a

plethora of pets awaiting their

“fur-ever” homes, but providing

care in the meantime can cost a tail

and a paw.

“They’ll come from Chicago,

Joliet — all over,” said Carter,

who has worked at TLC for 43

years. “We do transfer Saturdays,

and they usually come up from

Kentucky or Indiana from highkill

shelters.”

TLC aims to find all its animals

a home, but it needs funds to do so.

The summer of fundraisers is

to kick off at 9:45 a.m. Saturday,

June 3, with the annual Vasco’s

Walk for TLC. The first 100 entrants

will receive a walkathon T-

shirt, and all canine companions

get a doggie bandana.

FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION

Andrew High School seniors

encourage each other to ‘go into

the unknown’

“It’s the oldest story in the

world. One day you’re planning

for someday. And then quietly,

without you ever really noticing,

someday is today. And that someday

is yesterday. And this is your

life.”

Andrew High School senior

Auzin Sarnia opened her graduation

speech May 24 with these

lines from her favorite TV show

“One Tree Hill.”

In front of her family, friends

and her classmates, she shared

these words that meant so much to

her and mapped out her memories

at Andrew.

“That someday is today, and

we’ve learned to take the world by

storm ever since,” Sarnia said.

Fellow classmate Aubrey

Zwartz took center stage next, borrowing

themes from her favorite

Disney movies.

Equating freshman year to

“Finding Nemo,” Zwartz talked

about how she and her peers had

to figure out the waters of high

school. Eventually, they found

their way — “just [kept] swimming”

— until they reached their

sophomore year. “Toy Story”

served as the comparison for

sophomore year in finding friends

and a sense of community, and

Belle from “Beauty and the Beast”

taught Zwartz to “dare to be different.”

Finally, “Moana” closed

Zwart’s journey.

“Moana, both excited and

scared, found the courage to go

into the unknown, and now it’s our

turn to sail where the ocean meets

the sky,” she said.

Sarnia’s and Zwartz’s speeches

hit home for the audience, and

parents were quick to recognize

that this moment was bittersweet.

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Walkathon raises money for new

school playground

On Friday, May 26, Mokena

Elementary School students in

kindergarten through third grade

spent 30 minutes of their school

day by walking to raise money for

a new school playground.

Currently, there are dozens of

swings behind the elementary

school, but aside from the blacktop

area, there is not much else for

the students to do.

“The swings are very old and

need to be replaced anyway,”

Mokena Elementary School Principal

Anna Kirchner said. “We’re

spending a lot of money replacing

the chains for the swings and

things like that. They’re really, really

outdated.”

She said it does not make sense

to continue replacing chains on

the swings, because new chains

are expensive. The swings would

have to be taken down before

a new playground could be installed.

Kirchner said students love the

swings, and the proposed new

playground is to include swings

— just new ones.

A new playground, which is to

cost $60,000, would give students

more activities during recess, and

Kirchner said it would be good

for students who might not be interested

in playing a sport during

recess.

After the elementary school

students raised $20,000 for the

American Heart Association’s

Jump Rope for Heart this year,

Kirchner said she hoped they

could do a similar fundraising

event for a cause that would benefit

the school.

“I think the parents are happy

just to see that the funds will stay

here and go to something that

their student will be able to use

and access every day,” she said.

Who’s to say what

the most stressful

time of the year is?

For many people it can

be the holidays, or maybe it

is when the school year is

nearing its end.

While I enjoy the summer

weather just as much as

everyone else, for me it also

brings a lot of stress.

There’s so many more

outdoor projects I can work

on, but my creative side

often gets the best of me,

causing me to overestimate

what I can get done in a

reasonable amount of time.

It is also the time of year

when I want to get outside

as often as possible, but am

stuck inside much of the day

at my desk. That’s not to say

I don’t take time to eat my

lunch outside or take a walk

on my afternoon break, but I

often imagine what it would

be like to take my computer

out onto the lawn to work

all day.

Since that’s not reasonable,

I use my weekend time

to be outside as much as

possible. I don’t care if it’s

hiking, kayaking, camping

or rock climbing — if the

weather is nice, I just want

to be outside.

Those weekend trips,

however, can create a lot

of stress for me between

planning meals, reserving

campsites and then trying to

get everything done during

the week so I can take the

weekend off.

Even so, I don’t know

anyone who wants to work

all day, and then go home

and clean the house, do the

laundry, and cook a meal,

but there are a lot of things

that need to get done around

the house — and I don’t

even have children.

All of those to-do list

items and projects I want to

do tend to cause me more

stress than they probably

should in the big scheme

of things, but nonetheless,

I have to remind myself to

take a step back and relax

every once in a while.

Whether that’s going to a

yoga class at my gym or sitting

down at the table with a

coloring book — the reallydetailed-but-surprisinglycalming

kind of coloring

book made for us adults — I

know it’s something I need

to do for my own sanity.

It’s not just something I

do for me, it’s something

I do for the people around

me like my coworkers and

friends, because I know

when I’m too stressed out,

I’m no fun to work with and

no fun to hang out with.

While reading this, if

you’ve thought, “That’s

exactly how I feel,” or “I

don’t even know why she’s

stressed; I have so many

more things stressing me

out than she does,” then

you probably need some destressing

too.

Not sure where to start?

Libraries and park districts

are great places to start your

search for a relaxing activity,

which could be something

different for everyone.

The library offers numerous

adult craft classes,

book clubs and gentle yoga

programs each month, with

new things being added frequently.

Take a look at the

calendar on their website,

www.frankfortlibrary.org.

The park district also offers

tons of programs for all

ages, www.frankfortparks.

org with a variety of activities

ranging from sports to

trips and special events.

If you think you don’t

have time for any of those

things, I would argue that

you should make time. It

isn’t healthy to be go, go,

going all the time, and to

never take any time for

Help your customers

yourself.

So take a break, because

you work hard and deserve

some “me time.” I guarantee

it will make you and

the people around you a lot

happier.

Hickory Creek presents Disney hit

Megann Horstead

Freelance Reporter

Everyone has a story to

tell. For Hickory Creek Middle

School students, it just so

happens their adaptation of

Disney’s “High School Musical”

tells stories that highlight

individual differences

and talents.

It’s in part why the choral

department at Hickory Creek

chose it as its spring musical,

presented May 19-21. “High

School Musical” tells the

story of the cliques students

associate with and the hidden

talents and interests they seek

to show and tell.

“This story is very relevant,”

said Village Trustee

Cindy Heath, assistant director

for Hickory Creek’s

spring production, noting

that it’s all about kids and the

cliques they form connecting

skaters with skaters, basketball

players with basketball

players, and thespians with

thespians. “By the end of the

play, they’re all friends to be

part of the musical.”

Heath said they’ve heard

from former Hickory Creek

students who were planning

to return to their alma mater

to see the production of the

musical they grew up loving.

“People asked us to do it

for many years,” she said.

Heath stressed that Hickory

Creek prides itself on providing

a professional-looking

production.

“We push our kids to do

full Broadway versions of any

show we do,” she said. “[It’s]

a lot of hard work by the students.

They’re dedicated to

learning and practicing. The

other thing that helps is we

have a tremendous parent base

to build sets, paint the sets, doing

make-up and costumes.”

Eighth-grade student Kaitlyn

Lee played antagonist

Sharpay Evans in the two

Saturday shows, and said she

enjoyed portraying her role

on stage. Sharpay, originally

played by Ashley Tisdale in

the Disney movie, is the copresident

of the high school’s

drama club with a mean girl

persona who dreams of a career

in acting.

“Everyone says that I’m

like her, but I’m not really

sure,” she said. “It’s kind of

like I’m blonde and that’s it.”

Eighth-grade student

Spencer Hendren played

Sharpay’s twin brother, Ryan

Evans, in the same shows and

said it was great being able to

take to the stage. Hendren

said he tried to bring comedy

to the role, originally played

by Lucas Grabeel.

“I kind of liked being the

buffoon of the bunch — being

the clown,” he said. “I

just thought it was a funny,

comedic role.”

Eighth-grade student Clark

Anderson, who portrayed the

role of the male lead Troy

Bolton that same day, said the

comedic aspect came naturally

to Hendren.

Anderson said while he has

a few traits in common with

Troy — a varsity jock played

by Zac Efron — he’s not

quite as skilled at basketball.

“I made one [shot,]” he

said. “I was pretty happy

about that.”

Performing in front of a

live audience was not a first

for any of the three.

“It’s way different from

like video,” Lee said. “Having

a responsive audience is

Hickory Creek Middle School students Carys Haberkorn

(left, as Gabriella Montez) and Allison Nagaraja (as Taylor

McKessie) perform May 20 in a production of Disney’s “High

School Musical.” Laurie Fanelli/22nd Century Media

so great. It just like gives you

energy.”

Anderson agreed.

“It’s really cool to perform

in front of a live audience,”

he said. “We’ve all just spent

so much time working on

this… It is really nice to show

people how much effort and

work we put into this and the

result of what has happened."

The show had an estimated

80 students backstage, with

guidance provided by a number

of parent volunteers.

“Not only do they learn

musical skills, but teamwork

and cooperation,” Heath

said. “They form wonderful

friendships. They’re very accepting

of one another. They

help each other with lines

and dance steps. It’s touching

to see older students helping

younger students. It’s a wonderful

character-builder.”

Providence seniors leave high school with knowledge, character

Amanda Stoll, Assistant Editor

High school is a time for

learning new skills, increasing

knowledge of core subjects,

exploring new interests

and, for many, preparing

for college.

But the 275 graduating seniors

at Providence Catholic

High School gained another

foundational skill that’s possibly

even more important

than the others — character.

“Above all … the spiritual

dimension to the building

is what prepares them most

for college and for life,” said

John Harper, principal at

Providence Catholic High

School.

Those sentiments were

echoed in the graduation

speeches of the valedictorian

and co-salutatorians at this

year’s graduation ceremony,

which was held at The Rialto

Square Theatre in Joliet on

Valedictorian Samantha

Dorning, who is from Orland

Park, said the three

student speakers decided to

do something different this

year. Since there were three

of them, they decided to

focus of the three core Augustinian

values: truth, unity

and love.

Dorning said co-salutatorian

Meghan Howat, who is

from Plainfield, spoke about

love in a speech written as

if it were a letter from God

and what he would say about

loving and caring for people.

Michael Massaro, who

is from Homer Glen, spoke

about unity and the examples

of teamwork and camaraderie

during he and his classmates’

time at Providence,

according to Dorning.

“It is a class that is very

close. It’s a class that has

enjoyed a lot of success

both academically as well

as athletically,” Harper said.

“They have a very strong

spirit, and they are kids who

support one another.”

Dorning said she decided to

perform a spoken word poetry

piece about truth and

finding yourself.

“I was able to speak about

that and it was just a lot of

fun,” Dorning said about her

graduation speech.

All of the graduates are

planning to attend a fouryear

or community college

following graduation, according

to a press release

from the school. Harper

said many of the students

will also be continuing

their athletic involvement

in the fall.

Dorning said she will be

attending Boston University

in the fall to study political

science as part of a pre-law

track. As a second major, she

said she is interested in adding

history or English, but is

not sure yet which she will

choose.

Either way, she said she

intends to eventually go into

constitutional law.

“I’m very passionate

about America — I’m a very

patriotic person,” Dorning

said.

She said she got interested

in that specific area of

the law through history and

government classes at Providence,

where she learned

about interpretation of the

law and how it is not always

black and white.

The two biggest things she

said she will take with her

from high school into her

Co-salutatorian Michael Massaro speaks during the ceremony, which was held at the Rialto Square Theatre.

college life are time management

and the character

building that has been a part

of her education.

“The spiritual part of

Providence really formed

me into a good person,”

Dorning said. “I have that

foundational character that

Providence helped me set

up.

“I hope I can continue

that, and I hope I can grow

on that.”

During the ceremony, the

Bishop Blanchette Religion

Award was presented to

Meghan Howat of Plainfield

and T. J. Quinlan of Orland

Park, and the Bishop Roger

Kaffer Leadership Award

was given to Richard Warfield

of Orland Hills and

Meghan Morrissette of Joliet.

Awards were also given

to Rosie Lagone of Mokena

and Ryan Iacianco of Tinley

Park for the Senior Athletic-

Spirit Award. The Jaime

Garcia Scholastic Athlete

Award was given to Richard

Warfield of Orland Hills, according

to the press release.

Harper said he is “very

proud of our kids” and their

accomplishments in high

school as well as their plans

for the future.

“I think that Providence

provides a very strong academic

program, and we hear

back from our graduates that

they were prepared for their

first year of college,” he said.

The Dish

Which Wich the toughest choice to make at Orland’s new sandwich shop

Worldwide franchise

makes its debut in

southwest suburbs

Bill Jones, Managing Editor

Walk into Orland Park’s

newest sandwich chain and

the experience is almost

alarmingly different than

most.

First, it is the color

scheme: a bright yellow that

pops around every corner,

from the walls to the signs

to the counters to the treats

inside the old-school candy

dispenser.

Then, it is the concept.

The register and food service

area are set a bit farther

back than usual from

the door. Instead, diners are

greeted by large menu boards

overhead and numbered, metallic

sleeves housing a variety

of brown sandwich bags.

Pick a sandwich, grab the

corresponding bag, grab a

Sharpie and get to work.

Whether choosing a basic

sandwich type or one of the

“favorites” at Which Wich,

the bag offers seemingly

endless customization options:

style, cheeses, sauces,

onions, peppers, veggies and

more. Simply mark whatever

you want on the sandwich, at

no additional cost, put your

name at the top and present

the bag to the cashier. It is

put up on hanger above the

food prep station, and Which

Wich employees get to work

on the custom sandwich.

“It’s a lot of options,”

franchise owner Vishal Patel

said. “You can customize

your sandwich however you

want.”

But a good concept is just a

cute gimmick if the food does

not deliver. And Patel, who

first became acquainted with

the franchise while working

for Verizon in Dallas,

Franchise owner Vishal Patel mans the counter at Which

Wich in Orland Park, near the display for the store’s Project

PB&J fundraising initiative.

Which Wich

14934 S. LaGrange

Road in Orland Park

Hours

• 10 a.m.-9 p.m.

Monday-Saturday

• 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday

For more information ...

Phone: (708) 966-2462

Web: www.whichwich.

com

said what really drew him to

Which Wich was the quality

and variety. He said both

the meat and vegetables are

fresh, and as a vegetarian and

health-conscious diner he

loves that in addition to white

and wheat, anything Which

Wich makes can be crafted as

a Lettucewich, spinach wrap

or salad, as well.

Personally, Patel said he

goes for the Superfoodwich

($7.95) — a vegan

black bean patty with fresh

avocado, jalapeño hummus,

roasted red peppers and quinoa,

wrapped in a spinach

tortilla. He said the quality of

the ingredients make it a favorite,

but the sandwich also

appeals to a sense other than

taste.

“Run it through the oven,”

he said. “It smells good. It’s

fresh.”

While Patel said he loves

that Which Wich has “healthier

options” and lists the

calories alongside all of the

choices on its menu, there is

plenty to love, as well, about

the more traditional offerings

of the franchise. The store’s

signature sandwich, for instance,

is the Wicked (prices

vary by size). It starts with

turkey, ham, roast beef, pepperoni

and bacon, plus three

cheese choices. And that is

all before diners start selecting

those custom options.

The restaurant offers eight

core sandwich types, with

three varieties under each,

as well as eight “favorites”

and the Wicked, for a total

of more than 30 sandwiches.

Multiply that by the different

styles and customizations,

and the number of options

quickly becomes too absurd

to count.

Which Wich also offers

standard soft drinks, lemonade

and water; a variety of

chips; three types of cookies,

along with Which Krispies

and brownies. But on the

sweet side its true standouts

are the real ice cream shakes

($3.50), which are sold in

The Wicked is the signature choice of Which Wich. It features five meats, along with three

cheese selections. Photos by Bill Jones/22nd Century Media

Oreo, Hershey’s chocolate,

vanilla and strawberry options.

Many swear by the shakes,

and Patel said he thinks that

is because the chain keeps it

simple.

“It’s 100 percent real vanilla

ice cream, 2 percent

milk, blended,” he said.

While the shakes lean

more toward the decadent,

indulgent side of the menu,

Which Wich keeps more

of a health-conscious focus

with its Kids Menu. The

children’s sandwiches come

with apple slices, carrots and

a choice of drink, as well as

stickers and candies.

The store, like the rest of

the chain, also offers a peanut

butter and jelly sandwich

for a cause through its Project

PB&J program. For $3,

customers get a fresh sandwich,

and Which Wich in

turn provides a sandwich to

a local organization.

Customers also can order

ahead online with the

same variety of options. And

Which Wich offers a separate

catering menu, which features

many of the same sandwiches

alongside additional

offerings like pasta salads.

While the concept may be

be a bit different than those

to which customers in the

area are accustomed, with

Orland Park marking the first

(but maybe not last) excursion

into Chicago’s southwest

suburbs, Patel said

customers can streamline the

process by opting for a favorite,

if they are intimidated

by the selections.

Thankfully, he has not

had to introduce the concept

to many at Orland’s Which

Wich, thanks for the franchise’s

large presence in college

towns.

“Many people went to

Which Wich before and were

waiting for one to open,” he

said.

For those looking to give

it a whirl, though, Patel reiterated

the franchise’s “satisfaction

guarantee,” which

states it will remake, refund

or both.

“No questions asked, if

you don’t like it,” Patel said.

There is no question Patel

has been satisfied by the

experience of opening his

first restaurant. And the Park

Pointe Plaza location was the

perfect spot for it, he said.

The Woodridge resident

said his wife grew up in nearby

Oak Forest.

“We used to hang out at

this mall,” he said. “This area

is good.”

Since it opened April 19,

he has seen the demand firsthand.

“If the weather is sunny,

business is booming,” he

said.

“Satisfied” might not be a

strong enough word to encompass

the way Patel said

he feels about the store.

“It was my dream to open

a business,” he said. “Here I

am. ... Which Wich gave me

a perfect platform.”

Award-Winning Tinley Park: The Perfect Home for Brookside Meadows

Ready to make a move?

Great, your first decision

is done! Now focus on

location. There are

hundreds of choices in the

Chicago area. Look for one

that is well-established with

attractive neighborhoods,

community amenities like

parks and recreation,

excellent schools and a

thriving economic base.

Check for conveniences

like transportation and

necessities like police, fire

and water. It might seem

impossible to find the

perfect location but rest

easy.

All the ingredient of

a perfect location are

mixed together in one

spot: award-winning

Tinley Park. It is attractive

and offers residents

more than just about

every other community

including a history of

appreciating home values

like the homes found in

Brookside Meadows, the

award-winning Tinley Park

neighborhood developed

by Crana Homes. Crana

homes are beautifully

designed, quality built and

hold their resale value.

So, what makes Tinley

Park a special location for

new home buyers? More

than half of all buyers are

looking to raise a family.

After extensive research,

Bloomberg BusinessWeek

declared Tinley Park is

The Best Place in America

to Raise a Family. It’s an

impressive credential from

a respected source!

But that’s not all. Movoto

online Real Estate blog

placed Tinley Park in a

list of Top Ten Small Cities

in America To Move To.

The list is based on data

collected from the Census

and the Bureau of Labor

Statistics on 100 cities

under 60,000 population.

Another important factor

is the local business climate

and Tinley Park once

again stands out. The U.S.

Department of Commerce

gave a national award to

Tinley for its Excellence in

Economic Development.

An impressive recognition

that acknowledges the

economic health of the

community.

So Tinley Park is

established as a great

location. Now, the next

step is to zero in on a

home. In Tinley Park,

the ‘gem inside the gem’

is Brookside Meadows.

These impressive luxury

townhomes have awardwinning

designs, energyefficient

features and

prices holding in the upper

$200s - including site.

Brookside Meadows

currently features two very

popular luxury townhome

designs. The Fahan II is

a beautiful 3,303 total

square foot home (2,087’

living space and a 1,216’

basement) with a twocar

garage and cement

driveway. The split level

layout has three (optional

four) bedrooms and

two-and-half baths. The

Lennan II is a comfortable

two (or optional three)

bedroom split level home

with a spacious upper

level master suite and an

optional cathedral ceiling.

The Lennan II has 3,167

square feet of total space

(2,118’ living space and

1,049’ basement) and a

twocar garage.

Both designs have large

open space kitchens,

custom maple cabinets and

sleek granite countertops.

A stately loft overlooks an

impressive and relaxing

great room. Gorgeous oak

is used on floors, doors,

railings and trim. Ceramic

tile covers the floors of

the foyer as well as the

The Fahan II, a split level single-family two or three bedroom luxury townhome

in Brookside Meadows

bathrooms - which also

feature cultured marble

vanity tops. A full lookout

basement and a patio are

included.

Options include a

fireplace, coffered ceilings,

skylights and a soaker tub in

the master bath. A walkout

basement is available in

some layouts. Energysaving

features like a

high-efficiency furnace and

Lo-E glass are standard.

Other ‘green’ features

include an Energy Miser

hot water heater, vented

soffits, 1.75” insulated

entrance doors and energy

efficient appliances. Smoke

detectors, Lake Michigan

water and sprinklers are

also standard. Specs and

options can change so

contact a sales associate

for details.

Look no further.

Brookside Meadows is

the best home to own and

Tinley Park is the best place

to live! Decorated models

are open Monday through

Thursday, 10:00am to

4:00pm; Saturday and

Sunday from noon to

4:00pm; and on Friday by

appointment. Exit I-80 at

Porte Road and turn east

for one-half mile. If using

a GPS enter: 19839 Mulroy

Build and Move into Your New Home from the low $200s

With Lincoln-Way Schools at Prairie Trails in Manhattan

Distinctive Home Builders provides homeowners the

highest quality home on the market

Distinctive Home Builders

continues to add high quality

homes to the Manhattan

landscape at Prairie Trails; its

latest new home community,

located within the highly-regarded

Lincoln-Way School

District. Many families are

happy to call Prairie Trails

home and are pleased that

Distinctive is able to deliver a

new home with zero punch list

items in 90 days. Before closing,

each home undergoes an

industry-leading checklist that

ensures each home measures

up to the firm’s high quality

standards.

“Actually our last average

was 81 working days from excavation

to receiving a home

occupancy permit - without

sacrificing quality,” said Bryan

Nooner, president of Distinctive

Home Builders. “Everyone

at the company works

extremely hard to continually

achieve this delivery goal for

our homeowners. Our three

decades building homes provides

this efficient construction

system. Many of our

skilled craftsmen have been

working with our company for

Recently closed Prairie Trails Arbor Model

over 20 years. We also take

pride on having excellent communicators

throughout our

organization. This translates

into a positive buying and

building experience for our

homeowners and one of the

highest referral rates in the industry

for Distinctive.”

In all, buyers can select

from 13 ranch, split-level and

six two-story single-family

home styles; each offering

three to eight different exterior

elevations. The three- to

four-bedroom homes feature

two to two-and-one-half

baths, two- to three-car garages

and a family room, all in

approximately 1,600 to over

3,000 square feet of living

space. Basements are included

in most models as well. Distinctive

also encourages customization

to make your new

home truly personalized to

suit your lifestyle.

Oversize home sites; brick

exteriors on all four sides of

the first floor; custom maple

cabinets; ceramic tile or hardwood

floors in the kitchen,

baths and foyer; genuine wood

trim and doors; granite countertops

and concrete driveways

can all be yours at Prairie

Trails. All home sites at Prairie

Trails can accommodate a

three-car garage; a very important

amenity to the Manhattan

homebuyer, according

to Nooner.

“When we opened Prairie

Trails we wanted to provide

the best new home value for

the dollar and we feel with

offering Premium Standard

Features that we do just that.

So why wait? This is truly the

best time to build your dream

home!”

Distinctive offers custom

maple kitchen cabinets featuring

solid wood construction

(no particle board), have solid

wood drawers with dove tail

joints, which is very rare in the

marketplace. “When you buy

a new home from Distinctive,

you truly are receiving custom

made cabinets in every home

we sell no matter what the

price range,” noted Nooner.

Nooner added that all

homes are highly energy efficient.

Every home built will

have upgraded wall and ceiling

insulation values with

Recently closed Prairie Trails Arbor Model

energy efficient windows and

high efficiency furnaces. Before

homeowners move into

their new home, Distinctive

Home Builders conducts a

blower door test that pressurizes

the home to ensure that

each home passes a set of very

stringent Energy Efficiency

guidelines.

Typically a wide variety of

homes are available to tour

that include ranch and twostory

homes.

Distinctive is also offering

a brand new home, the

Stonegrove, a 3,000 square

foot open concept home with a

split foyer entry, formal living

and dining rooms, a two-story

great room, four bedrooms

and an upstairs laundry room.

Distinctive also offers Appbased

technology allowing its

homeowners to be updated

on the progress of their new

home 24 hours a day, seven

days a week at the touch of a

button.

Prairie Trails is also a beautiful

place to live featuring a

20-acre lake on site, as well

as direct access to the 22-mile

Wauponsee Glacial Prairie

Path that borders the community

and meanders through

many neighboring communities

and links to many other

popular trails. The Manhattan

Metra station is also nearby.

Besides Prairie Trails, Distinctive

Home Builders has

built hundreds of homes

throughout Manhattan in the

Butternut Ridge and Leighlinbridge

developments, as well

as thousands in the Will and

south Cook county areas over

the past 30 years.

center for unadvertised

styles of homes being

offered and the available lots.

legs from last year’s state

record team, we had no idea

as a coaching staff in January

where we’d be with this

team. I don’t know if we

ever thought winning it was

our goal.”

Sandburg senior Ayo

Abiona placed eighth in

the long jump to close his

high school career as a

four-year state qualifier and

three-time all-state honoree

– twice in the long jump

and once in the 100-meter

dash. His best jump was 22

feet, 6.75 inches, while the

winning jump was 23 feet,

11.25 inches.

“We’ve never had all-state

long jumper in history,”

Nemeth said. “For him to

go all-state in back-to-back

years is just another notch on

his belt to say he’s the best

long jumper we’ve had in

this program’s history.”

Jacobs placed ninth in the

1600-meter run with a time

of 4:19.23 after running

a 4:15.68 in prelims. The

winning time was 4:10.51.

“The field was lethal,”

Nemeth said. “A time of

4:19 is tremendous, and he

only got ninth. Many years

4:19 is top five. It just happened

to be a loaded field.

It was maybe the deepest

field I’ve seen in a decade

in terms of depth of experienced

runners.”

with Cole Paraday

■June ■ 3 at sectional*

■June ■ 5 at supersectional*

Cole Paraday is a senior

on the Lincoln-Way East

track and field team. He

placed seventh at state in

discus.

How are you preparing

for state competition?

I hit qualifying marks

throughout my season, but

I’ve never gotten through

sectional. Throwing discus

can be kind of a mind

game. It’s all about technique.

This week, I’m trying to

work on my technique and

have it down for state. I’m

not trying to take it hard this

week because I want to be

nice and loose for state. But

other than that, I’m really

excited, and I just want to

make a big mark and PR before

[the end] of my senior

year.

What does it feel like

to qualify for the first

time?

It feels good. I’m not done

yet. Now that I’m going to

state, my goal is to place — I

want to place Top 3.

How do you get your

mind in the right place?

Once I step in the ring, I

just try and clear my mind

and stay calm. The more

relaxed I am, the better

I’ll throw. If you’re really

pumped up — I mean, it’s

okay to be pumped up,

that’s good — but if you’re

really nervous and tense,

it’s going to be different to

throw.

How did you start

throwing discus?

I started in sixth grade

throwing discus. My uncle

threw discus. I was always

a little bigger than everyone

else. I picked up a shot put

and discus, and I threw a

little farther than most people.

Once I started throwing

and making decent marks

throughout the state, I fell in

love with it. Hitting PRs in

discus and shot put — it’s a

great feeling. Not only does

it show your hard work is

paying off, but it’s also really

satisfying.

It was kind of difficult

throughout the years because

our schools never really

had a consistent coach.

I had to find myself a coach

that I could do on the side.

I found a really experienced

coach: Tom Pukstys. He’s

a former Olympian on the

javelin, but he’s a great

shot put and discus coach

as well. Once I started training

with him, he was really

helpful.

Other than that, I watched

YouTube videos.

Did your uncle influence

you to throw discus at

all?

He was really good in

high school. He never threw

in college. So whenever he

would come around, we

would go up to the rings at

Lincoln-Way North, where

I went last year. He would

kind of coach me up a little

bit. He tried his best, and we

tried to spend as much time

on discus as possible.

A few years ago, he bought

me disks, so I use those to

train all the time.

What are your plans for

after high school?

After high school, I am

going to attend the United

States Navel Academy. I got

recruited to throw there. I

took an official visit in December.

I loved it, and I look

forward to going. I just felt

really comfortable and love

the atmosphere. I’m excited

to throw there, too, and it’s a

great school.

... It was a really long

process, too, because I had

to get an interview with the

congressman.

What do you plan on

studying?

I plan on majoring in cyber

operations.

What interests you

about the Navy and

cyber operations?

I love computers and

technology. I took keyboarding

and computer science

in high school, and it

was definitely something

that were my top classes.

I kind of knew from the

beginning that I wanted to

major in something in technology

or computers.

The Navy, I have a long

family history of family

members who were in

the military. My grandfather

served in the Marines,

and my cousin is in

the Navy.

It crossed my mind several

times that I wanted to join

the military.

Are you excited for

graduation?

I’m looking forward to

graduation, definitely. It’s

crazy; high school flew by

really fast. It was really fun.

I had a great time, and I met

a lot of new people since we

transferred from North to

East.

My last day was [May

22], technically, since I don’t

have to take any finals. It’s

weird, since it’s like, ‘wow,

I’m done with high school.’

I’m excited to take the next

step in my life.

Who are your role

models?

Both my parents. My dad

and my mom. Without them,

I wouldn’t be able to do many

Photo submitted

things. I have a car with them,

and without them, I wouldn’t

be able to go to practice.

Sometimes I have to pay for

coaching lessons, and without

them, I wouldn’t be able

to do much of that. They support

me all the time — they

come to my meets. They’re

always there for me.

Tom Pukstys, he’s a great

role model too when it comes

to track and field. He’s very

experienced. He dedicates

a lot of time to helping me

practice.

Sometimes it can be

stressful. I mean, I’ve had a

few meets this year where I

didn’t do as well as I thought

I would. But I came back

from that, and I qualified

for state. With this last meet,

I’m just looking to do what

I’m capable of.

Boys tennis

Griffins end state with historic finish

Frank Gogola

Freelance Reporter

Chris Olson has coached

successful boys tennis teams

in his 16 years at Lincoln-

Way East, but he had not

seen a state tournament performance

quite like this past

weekend when East rewrote

the program’s record book.

The Griffins had the highest

finish, most points, most

matches played and won,

and most second-day qualifiers

in program history. Their

weekend featured program

career records for most state

tournament singles wins,

most overall wins, most state

tournament appearances and

highest-seeded player.

The Griffins accomplished

the feats while overcoming an

injury and competing against

Class 2A competition in the

64-player, double-elimination

tournament as IHSA tennis

went to two classes this

season for the first time.

“For the guys to go out and

to win tight, close matches

against incredibly difficult

competition and to do it in

multiple spots, that’s more

than a coach could ever dream

of,” Olson said. “To put two

days of competition together,

it highlights what was a historic

season for the team.”

The Griffins finished in

13th place with 10 points.

They won eight matches and

competed in 16 contests from

Thursday, May 25 and Friday,

May 26.

Junior Ryan Mitchell,

the team of seniors Weston

Dell and Matt Zuccato, and

the team of juniors Declan

Merbeth and Will Cooley

advanced to the second day.

East had qualified singles

players and doubles teams for

the second day in past years

but never had more than one

entry into day two in a single

season.

Will Cooley (left) and Declan Merbeth, who advanced to the consolidation third round at state, play earlier this season. Bob klein/22nd Century media

“To wake up [Friday]

morning and have three out

of the four flights still alive,

that was a motivating, inspiring

part of the tournament for

us,” Olson said.

Mitchell, a three-time state

qualifier, ended his junior year

with a program-record seven

state-tournament singles wins.

Rohan Piska won eight overall

– five singles, three doubles –

from 2013 to 2015.

Mitchell went 3-2 this

year and finished in the top

24 players (17-24 group) after

being seeded in the 9-16

group as East’s highest-seeded

player. He advanced to

the consolation fourth round,

where he lost 2-6, 0-6.

Dell and Zuccato went 2-2

and made it to the consolation

third round. It was the

best state finish and first trip

to the second day for the twotime

qualifiers.

“To see those two seniors

get that opportunity play on

Friday, to qualify into this

elite group their last year was

really outstanding,” Olson

said. “Their senior leadership

is a big part of the tradition

and legacy they’re leaving

for Griffins tennis.”

Merbeth and Cooley advanced

to the consolation

third round with a 2-2 record

in just their second weekend

of competition as a team.

An injury to senior Spencer

Hein resulted in Olson

moving Merbeth from No. 2

singles and Cooley from No.

3 doubles to form the No. 2

doubles team, and putting

Hein’s partner, senior Nikhil

Piska, into No. 2 singles.

“Cooley and Merbeth were

the unsung heroes of the tournament,”

Olson said. “Any

time you have two first-time

state qualifiers, there’s a lot of

nerves. They fought through

an opening-round three setter

and got experience on the go.

For them to go 2-2, it was really

extraordinary.

“Declan was a little hesitant

at first to switch to doubles,

but one thing he always

wanted to do was qualify for

state. I told him there might

be a great opportunity to get

to state on the doubles sides

if he was willing to go for it,

and he overcame that reluctancy

early on.”

“For the guys to go out and to

win tight, close matches against

incredibly difficult competition

and to do it in multiple spots,

that’s more than a coach could

ever dream of."

Chris Olson - East boys tennis coach on the team's

best finish

Piska, having moved to

singles, went 1-2 and finished

his career with 120

wins, a program record. As

East’s first four-time state

qualifier, he went 4-8 overall

– 3-6 in singles and 1-2

in doubles – over his career.

“To see him go out and

pick up a win at state in his

final year, that just highlights

the leadership, the captaincy

that he brought to the team all

season long,” Olson said.

From Page 54

East's Danny Zimmerman whips a pitch in the regional

final. Julie McMann/22nd Century Media

“It’s a really tough situation,

but he’s tough as

nails,” Nowicki said. “He

DHs for us, which is a

tough thing mentally to do.

He’s come in in some big

ball games for us and shut

the door. There’s no guy we

trusted more in that situation

to get strikes and get

outs for us. He did an outstanding

job.”

“You have to tip your hat

to [Bennit],” East coach Paul

Babcock said. “I also tip our

hats to our guys because I

loved the approach we had

[at the plate].”

Central had advanced

to the regional championship

game by pulling out

a 1-0 victory against 15thseeded

Joliet Central. Tyler

Schuerg had an RBI

double, center fielder Matt

Duske threw out a runner

at the plate and Josh Currier

earned the win on the

mound.

East, the eighth seed and

SouthWest Suburban Blue

co-champions, had opened

the postseason with a 13-3

victory against 10th-seeded

T.F. South.

In a rematch of an April

21 non-conference game

that East won 12-1 at Central,

the Knights jumped out

early. Schuerg had an RBI

single and RBI fielder’s

choice, and Aaron Andersen

had an RBI single to

give Central a 3-0 lead after

three innings.

Everett sliced an RBI single

down the left-field line

to pull East within 3-1 in

the fourth inning and chase

Central starter Andrew Hancock.

Reliever Nate Davis

inherited runners on first and

second, walked the bases

loaded but got out of the inning

without allowing a run.

In the sixth inning, Sean

Robinson stroked a two-run

double down the left-field

line to tie the game 3-3.

Jacob Blount reclaimed

the lead for Central in the

bottom of the sixth inning

with an RBI double off Zimmerman.

“He was going to try to

overpower us with the fastball,

so we just had to be

ready for it,” Blount said.

“Make contact with it. He

supplied the power. Just trying

to put the ball on the right

side, get that runner home.”

Blount scored from third

on a batted ball off of

third base to pad the lead

to 5-3.

“I’m so proud of us because

we never gave in,”

Babcock said. “We battled.

Nobody gave in. That’s a

key in life. Baseball teaches

so many life lessons, and

you have to carry yourself

with class and pride. We’re

not going to hang our heads

because we did everything

we possibly could and

came up a little short.”

ond half, but still had a

tough time generating good

chances. Their best look

came with 10 minutes left

in regulation when Kelsey

McInturff put a header on

goal.

Toomey leaped to deflect

the shot off the crossbar and

out.

In the end, it was a frustrating

end to a great season

for the Griffins, who went

undefeated in the South-

West Suburban Red.

“Soccer is a cruel sport,”

East coach Mike Murphy

said. “We had an outstanding

year. It’s unfortunate

it ended here, but you’ve

got to give West credit.

They wanted to try to get

it to PKs. They put 10

people behind the ball and

it was hard to score. We

had more opportunities to

score and more possession,

but they executed their

game plan.”

11 seniors played their

last game for East, including

eight starters.

“This group of seniors

was special,” Murphy said.

“There are going to be some

voids. These seniors did a

great job getting both East

and North together. The

girls from East welcomed

me and our coaching staff

and I’m thankful to them

for that.

“These girls just loved

each other. I think they’re

going to have some lifelong

friends. I told them

soccer is soccer, but there

are other more important

things in life and we built

some great friendships

this year.”

ready for penalty kicks, as

well.

Wednesday night was no

exception as the Warriors

won the penalty-kick shootout

4-1 to earn a stunning

1-0 victory over Lincoln-

Way East in a Class 3A

Sandburg Sectional semifinal.

“We said it right from the

start,” Theiss said. “Everybody

can step up with confidence

because we’ve got

Toomey between the pipes.

She’s been huge in PKs.

She’s a PK specialist, honestly.

“We finish every day of

training with each girl gets

one PK and if you miss, you

have to do (burpee exercises).

That’s given us a lot

of success. When you take

a few shots in training, you

get complacent. But when

you have just one, with a

punishment in mind, you’ve

got to step up and bury it.”

The win sent the Warriors

(15-6-2) into a sectional

championship matchup with

third-seeded Sandburg (14-

5-1) that concluded on Saturday,

May 27.

West and the Griffins (15-

4-1) played 100 minutes of

scoreless soccer, forcing the

match to come down to penalty

kicks.

Madison Mikalauski,

Breanna Bembenek and

Savina Filip scored for the

Warriors in the first three

rounds of the shootout.

Breanna Bembenek boxes out East’s Carolyn Waleski for

the ball.

East, meanwhile, got a

conversion from Bianca

Galassini, but Caroline Kilrea’s

shot hit the crossbar

and Toomey made a save on

Emily Scianna’s shot.

“It was an unlucky shot

for Caroline,” Toomey said.

“If that goes in, it’d be a

whole different situation.

That boosted our confidence

and then I was able to make

the save. I try as much as I

can not to think too much

and let the pressure get to

me. I feel like as long as I’m

confident, things will end

well for me.”

After Toomey’s save, the

stage was set for sophomore

Jane Pinkerton to win it in

the fourth round. Pinkerton

buried a hard rolling shot

inside the right post to set

off a raucous celebration for

the Warriors.

“It was insanely nerve

wracking, but we always

say ‘Just like practice, just

like practice,’” Pinkerton

said. “This win is insanely

special for us. There’s no

other feeling like this.”

Theiss was especially

impressed with Filip, who

doesn’t typically take penalty

kicks.

“Sara Loichinger is normally

our third shooter, but

she was cramping up really

bad, so we slotted Savina

in there,” Theiss said. “She

comes in and smokes a shot

top shelf. That’s what this

game was really all about

for us. It was about next

man up and everybody stepping

up.”

The Warriors held the

Griffins’ high-powered attack

to just two shots on

goal through regulation and

two overtime periods.

While West produced just

one shot on goal itself, it’s

defensive focus paid off.

“We didn’t change

much,” Theiss said. “Our

back line has been so sound.

It starts with Toomey being

vocal in the back.

“We had to give Galassini

some extra attention.

Carissa (Knezz) was doing

a great job with her and

unfortunately she hurt her

knee. We made a couple

adjustments and Madison

(Mikalauski) did a great job

maintaining that role.”

Although the Warriors

came in as an underdog,

Theiss said his team believed

they could win.

“These girls have grit

“They’re a fun group. They

in their eyes. I give a lot of

credit to our senior leaders.

What a great effort from

these girls. I’m very proud

of them.”

half. Kilrea fired high on a

Baseball

Celtics overcome miscues in 4-3 regional semifinal win

Randy Whalen, Freelance Reporter

The streaker came and the streak

continued.

In the bottom of the sixth inning

of the Thursday, May 25, regional

semifinal between Providence and

Stagg, a streaker jumped over the

right-field fence, ran around for a

few moments and jumped back over

the fence.

Maybe it was a foreshadowing, as

soon after, the Providence postseason

baseball streak continued.

Down to their final four outs, the

Celtics rallied for a run to tie in the

sixth inning, and then Dylan Gorski

knocked in the winning run in the

bottom of the seventh. That gave

Providence a 4-3 victory over Stagg

in the second semifinal of the Class

4A Andrew Regional.

The victory improved the threetime

defending Class 4A state

champion Celtics postseason winning

streak to 22 games. Stagg (15-

14) was looking to capture a regional

title for the first time since 2014.

The Celtics have not lost in the

playoffs since May 30, 2013 by the

score of 2-1 at home to Lockport

Township in a Class 4A sectional

semifinal game. The May 25 victory

was the 10th time Providence

pulled out a game by one run in the

streak. Toss in a couple of times that

the Celtics were tied or trailed in

the seventh but rallied for multiple

runs to pull it out, and the stretch

becomes even more unreal.

“We just have to do what we do,”

said Providence right fielder Kevin

O’Boyle, who is one of 10 Celtics

seniors who have never seen their

team lose a postseason game since

they’ve been in high school. “You

have to trust in the process and be a

team when we need it the most.

“Maybe there is some pressure,

but not a whole lot. We know what

to expect. We stick with each other

and never give up.”

Batting in the No. 9 position,

O’Boyle (1-for-2) had a bunt single

in the fourth inning. But, true to the

team concept, he was pinch-hit for

with the Celtics trailing and one out

and none on in the bottom of the

sixth. That move paid dividends as

sophomore Alex Helmin hammered

a double into the left-field corner.

Following a popout, junior center

fielder Steven Meyer (2-for-4, RBI,

R) mashed a triple that one-hopped

off the right-field fence to knot the

game at 3-3.

Junior right-hander Ethan Petric,

who is usually a starter but entered

in the sixth, retired the Chargers in

order for the second-straight inning

in the top of the seventh. That set

the stage for another Celtic celebration.

Dakota Kotowski was hit by a

pitch top open the inning. When an

errant pickoff throw went down the

right-field line, the junior first baseman

went to third base with no outs.

Stagg elected to intentionally

walk senior left fielder Drew Hunniford

(1-for-3) and senior catcher

Mike Massaro to load the bases.

That worked out for a moment as

the Chargers got a force out at home

on a tapper to third. That brought up

Gorski, and the junior second baseman

lined a 1-0 pitch for a single to

right for the game-winning hit.

“I just wanted to get the ball in

the air and do the job,” said Gorski,

who was 3-for-4 from the No. 8 spot

in the lineup. “It was an offspeed

pitch and I held back and took it to

right.

“There was no pressure at all;

that’s the fun of the game right

there. When we were down 3-2, we

just said that we can do this. Just do

the job and we’ll be fine.”

Stagg was the latest victim of the

streak.

“They don’t have a slouch in their

lineup,” said Charger coach Matt

O’Neill, who saw the Celtics out hit

his squad 11-to-2. “They know how

to win they just find ways to win.”

Providence scored a pair of runs

in the third. Gorski got the first hit

of the game for either team when he

hit a first-pitch leadoff single up the

middle. One out later, junior shortstop

Ryan Kaup (1-for-4) singled to

center and Meyer made his perfect

bunt up the third base line go for a

single to load the bases. Junior third

baseman Logan Anderson (2-for-4)

then had a two-run single to left.

Frankfort resident Logan Anderson awaits a pitch.

for Providence ran into trouble in

the fifth. He had walked two in the

first four innings, but issued a pair

of one-out walks in the fifth. A nice

squeeze bunt by senior right fielder

Trevor Bumsted scored a run and

sophomore catcher Danny Russo

followed with a first-pitch RBI

single to left to tie the game at 2-2.

That chased Dankovich and brought

in sophomore righty Basil Webber.

With runners at first and third,

the Chargers did an intentional rundown

between first and second while

the runner breaks off from third.

It worked as the ball was dropped

in the rundown, allowing Russo to

score the lead run. Junior second

baseman Drake Wolan (1-for-2, BB)

also had a single for the Chargers.

Fresh off a trip to Boston the day

before to see the major league debut

of former Providence standout Sam

Travis for the Red Sox, Providence

coach Mark Smith left immediately

after the game for a family graduation.

But, according to assistant

coach Jason Vitas, he gave the same

pep talk over again and it worked

again.

“It’s the same speech every year,”

Vitas said of what Smith tells the

team every season during the streak

when they’ve been behind. He says

‘just play our game and we’ll be

fine.’”

Griffins held by pitching in tight loss to Central

Frank Gogola

Freelance Reporter

Lincoln-Way Central

pitcher Brandon Bennit

thought for a split second

that he blew the Knights’

chance to win a regional final.

He gave up a long foul

ball that looked and sounded

like a potential bases-clearing

hit with Central holding

a two-run lead against Lincoln-Way

East in the seventh

inning.

“I didn’t think it would

hook,” Bennit said. “I was

a little nervous. I kind of

laughed it off. It should kind

of shake you up, but I was

like, ‘I can’t let that affect

me.’ I knew to go right back

at him.”

Bennit picked up the final

three outs after that while

limiting East to one run as

the Knights secured their

first regional title since 2010

with a 5-4 victory in the

Lincoln-Way East Regional

championship game on Saturday,

May 27.

Second-seeded Central

(22-8), which scored all five

of its runs against Louisville

recruit Danny Zimmerman,

advances to a Homewood-

Flossmoor Sectional semifinal

game against third-seeded

Lincoln-Way West at 6:15

p.m. on Wednesday, May 31.

“To know that we’re playing

our best baseball right

now, I think is a huge turning

point for these guys,” Central

coach Mitch Nowicki

said. “I think we’ll have a

lot of confidence going forward.”

Bennit, who scored two

runs earlier as the designated

hitter, took the mound in

a 5-3 game with no outs in

the seventh inning. Before

he entered, East loaded the

bases with two walks and a

single against reliever Ryan

Vice.

East junior Julian Everett,

the first batter Bennit faced,

pulled a 3-2 pitch foul by a

foot or two down the rightfield

line. Bennit bounced

back and struck out Everett

on the next pitch.

He got Mike Wallace to

ground into an RBI fielder’s

choice as East pulled within

5-4 with runners on second

and third. Jim Richmond

flew out to right field to end

the game.

East freshman

finishes third at

state competition

Frank gogola

Freelance Reporter

Lincoln-Way East coach

Ross Widinski knew he

had something special in

freshman AJ Henning coming

into the season. He just

didn’t know how quickly

the 100-meter runner would

develop.

Henning capped off a successful

freshman campaign

with a third-place finish at

the Class 3A state finals on

Saturday, May 27 at Eastern

Illinois University. He had

the second-highest finish of

the seven all-state honorees

between East and Sandburg.

The top nine finishers in

each event earned all-state

honors.

“We knew he had a ton

of talent coming [into the

season], but he really surprised

us,” East coach Ross

Widinski said. “He already

had all the physical capabilities

you’d ever want. He’s

physically gifted. It was his

wanting to be better and

his knack for following the

older guys’ example about

how to prepare mentally

and physically.”

East freshman AJ Henning

took third place in

the 100-meter dash to earn

the Griffins’ highest finish

in any event since Nick

Neuman was third in the

100-meter dash in 2008.

Henning crossed the line in

10.75 seconds after being

seeded 19th heading into

state.

“We thought he had a

chance for medal contention,

but man, third place

is phenomenal,” Widinski

said.

East’s 400-meter relay

team placed sixth to tie with

the 2009 400 relay team for

the program’s highest finish

by any relay team. The team

of senior Jimmy Barkauskas,

Henning, senior Mason

Keenan and senior Nick

Miranda ran a time of 42.52

seconds. The winning time

was 41.78.

“They’ve been together

only about a month,” Widinski

said. “Typically,

an all-state team has been

working together most the

year to get those handoffs

perfect, so it was with sheer

will they developed into this

level of a relay team.”

Senior Cole Paraday

placed seventh in the discus

throw with a distance of

169 feet, 7 inches in his first

state appearance.

Miranda was ninth in the

400-meter dash with a time

of 51.39 seconds to medal

for the first time. A threeyear

state qualifier, he did

not make it past prelims last

year while working his way

back from an ACL injury.

“I can’t speak more highly

of Nick,” Widinski said.

"He already had all the physical capabilities you’d

ever want. He’s physically gifted. It was his wanting

to be better and his knack for following the older

guys’ example about how to prepare mentally and

physically.”

Ross Widinski — Lincoln-Way East track and field coach on freshman AJ

Henning's third-place 100-meter finish at state

“I’m really proud of him.

He had a lot of adversity,

fought back [and] became

a better runner and team

leader. He knew it’d be a

process to come back, and

his patience more than anything

else made his season a

success.”

Senior Scott Platek, a twoyear

state qualifier, placed

18th in the 3,200-meter run

with a time of 9:40.59.

Senior Noah Healy, a

three-year state qualifier,

did not make it out of prelims

in the 1,600-meter run,

crossing the line in 4:19.76.

“The biggest thing is everyone

who went down (to

state) came home a medalist,

or if they didn’t medal,

they set a PR for their career,”

Widinski said.

Sandburg’s 3,200-meter

relay team failed to defend

it back-to-back state titles

but still finished in the top

four for the sixth consecutive

year even though this

version of the team had

three new members and

raced together only three

times all season.

The relay team placed

second and missed first by

less than a quarter of a second.

They had the highest

finish of the seven all-state

honorees between Sandburg

and Lincoln-Way East at the

Class 3A state finals on Saturday,

May 27, at Eastern

Illinois University. The top

nine finishers in each event

earned all-state honors.

“It’s good to announce

that we’re still around and

we have some great 4-by-

8s left in us even after losing

the guys from last year,”

Sandburg coach Joe Nemeth

said. “I’ve never been

that excited, that happy for

a second-place finish in my

career.”

The 3,200-relay team of

senior Martin Skucas, senior

Alex Szymanski, sophomore

Peter Demogerontas

and junior Dylan Jacobs

ran a season-best time of

7:45.75 to finish 0.24 seconds

behind Neuqua Valley

(7:45.51). Sandburg was in

sixth place and about four

seconds behind the leader

when Jacobs, the only returner

from last year’s state

champion relay team that

set an IHSA record, received

the baton for the final

leg, Nemeth said.

The four runners ran together

for the first time a

week earlier at sectionals.

They then ran in prelims and

finals, where they shaved a

whopping 7.58 seconds off

their prelims time.

“I don’t know how much

faster that team could ever

run,” Nemeth said. “The

handoffs were beautiful. It

was our sixth fastest time

in school history, and we’ve

ran a lot of fast 4-by-8s at

Sandburg. For that to be

sixth place all time with that

group that didn’t know each

other prior to the season and
