demonstrations that save

lives and execute essential

public services on a daily


Among the many demonstrations,

was a fire

demonstration where two

burn trailers were placed

side by side and one contained

a sprinkler and the

other did not.

Gusterine said the purpose

of this demonstration

was to show the importance

of sprinkler systems.

Other demonstrations

included watching a police

dog in action to showcase

what police dogs are

used for, how a diver assists

with rescue missions

and more.

A crowd-pleasing attraction

was the landing

of a Flight for Life Helicopter

at Artesian Park.

Gusterine said the landing

of the helicopter was used

to demonstrate what medical

care is used in extreme

emergency situations.

Children of all ages

enjoyed exploring fire

trucks, public works vehicles

and police squad cars.

The fire department also

offered an obstacle course

and supplied a fire pole for

children to slide down.

The free event not only

welcomed the landing of

a helicopter, but also free

food and refreshments

provided by the Metropolitan

Emergency Support

Service, a volunteer run

organization that provides

support to on-scene emergency


While the event offered a

variety of fun activities for

children, Gusterine noted

its purpose was to provide

safety information to children

and adults alike.

“A lot of time the event

is aimed toward the kids,

to help get kids used to

first responders so they

are not afraid if they ever

come into contact with

first responders,” Gusterine

said. “But, the event

also has good information

for adults as well.”

Lead levels exceeding

federal standards were

found in the soil near Moffett

Road, delaying planned

sidewalk and gutter repairs

to the end of September, according

to Lake Bluff Village

Engineer Jeff Hansen.

Hansen updated the Village

Board on the Moffett

Road Replacement Project

at its meeting Monday,

Sept. 10, saying the detected

levels cause no reason

for concern and are being

further investigated by contractors.

Disposal plans are also in

progress, he added.

“It’s not (that) you can’t

touch the soil because it’s

so contaminated, but it

falls into that category, now

we’ve been asked to go in

that way per the federal requirements,”

Hansen said.

The U.S. Environmental

Protection Agency’s standard

Study finds increased

marijuana use among

Deerfield and Highland

Park teens

Teens in Deerfield and

Highland Park are increasingly

using marijuana —

and at higher rates than

the Lake County average,

according to a recent biennial

state survey.

About 61 percent of

Deerfield High School seniors

reported using marijuana

at least once in the

past 30 days, when asked

in the spring for the 2018

Illinois Youth Survey,

in play areas is 400 parts

per million by weight and

1,200 parts per million for

non-play areas, which also

applies to cleanup projects

using federal funds such as

the Moffett Road Culvert

Replacement Project.

“We tend to think it’s

just something in the air

that’s settling down over

the years,” Hansen said. “I

don’t think the action level

is very high on that.”

A month-long closure of

Moffett Road will begin

the last week of September,

with advanced warning

signs posted in the coming

week, Hansen said. The

detour will be an official Illinois

Department of Transportation

route using state

roadways to move traffic to

Sheridan Road.

Residents will have access

to their homes from

either direction, since the

closure will be the route

over the ravine area, Hansen


“Chief (David) Graf has

compared to 58 percent

of Highland Park High

School seniors.

The Lake County average

was 26 percent, raising

questions at the Board

of Education meeting on

Tuesday, Sept. 11, as to

why numbers at Township

High School District 113

were higher.

The figure at Deerfield

High School, in particular,

spiked from 41 to 61 percent

from 2016 to 2018.

The survey is typically

given to eighth-, tenth- and

twelfth-graders across Illinois,

with a choice to opt


updated his maps with their

responding partners to make

sure they know how to get

there on time,” he said.

The planned repairs

near Moffett Road and the

ravine are part of the project’s

third and final phase,

which will be paid using 80

percent federal funds ($1

million) and 20 percent local

funds ($250,000). The

federal funds were secured

through the Surface Transportation


Prior phases include a

Phase I engineering and

environmental study completed

with approval from

the Illinois Department of

Transportation in the fall

of 2017 a Phase II final engineering

design was completed

and approved in the

spring of 2018.

Both phases were contracted

with Baxter &

Woodman Inc., of Crystal

Lake, and cost the Village

nearly $1 million —

$57,700 for Phase I and

$35,000 for Phase II.

“Based on 20 years of

research in a lot of different

communities, the more

affluent the community is, I

think there are more opportunities,”

said Greg Barker,

director of testing services

and academic affairs research

support at Northern

Illinois University. “There

is more parent acceptance

and even expectations to experiment.”

Such attitudes are apparent

when looking at

the percentage of students

who think their parents

would disapprove of them

New head of school at LFCDS ready to take on new year

Alyssa Groh, Editor

The independent school

system has always been

part of Joy Hurd’s life,

and when he was offered

a position as the new head

of school at Lake Forest

Country Day School he

could not turn it down.

And with accepting a new

job comes big change —

new state, new house and

new school.

Making the decision

to completely change his

family’s life was easy for


“[The area and Lake

Forest Country Day

School] seemed to have a

lot of the ingredients I was

looking for, even in the

early stages before I really

got to know the school,”

Hurd said.

Hurd’s passion for

teaching and being in an

independent school setting,

started when he was

a high school student in

his hometown outside of


“I was really inspired by

my high school teachers

in every which way actually,”

Hurd said. “I never

would have considered

becoming a teacher until I

went to high school.”

Hurd said his teachers

in high school impacted

him to pursue a career in

education for a variety of


“With my high school

teachers it was so clear

that they were so passionate

about what they were

doing, and it was almost

a calling,” Hurd said.

But his desire to follow

their footsteps was deeper

than noticing their passion.

It was seeing his

teachers be there as a mentor

that made him want to

be a mentor to other students

in the future.

After high school, Hurd

went on to study at Harvard

College, where he

earned a degree in classics.

His teaching career began

at St. Peter’s in New

York City where he taught

Greek and Latin. A few

years later he moved onto

St. Bernard’s School in

New York City, where he

taught Latin, English and

ancient history in addition

being a secondary school


It was during that time

he developed a passion for

advising and helping students

with figuring out the

next stage of their lives.

“[Being a secondary

school advisor] was a

great step in my professional

journey because

it opened my gaze to the

larger independent school

world,” Hurd said.

Going through the independent

school world

as a student, and now as

an educator, Hurd valued

what independent schools

were able to do.

“I think the way the

independent schools can

pursue their missions and

define their own mission is

really empowering,” Hurd

said. “I think that working

with a community that

sets its course with core

values in place is a really

neat thing. What I think it

enables to happen among

independent schools, is

they all sort of have different

characters in very

pronounced ways.”

Hurd also noted that he

most enjoyed getting to

know families and students

on a different level

as an advisor and helping

them find the best secondary

school for their individual


While he earned his

master’s degree in private

school leadership

from Teachers College

at Columbia University,

he served part-time at

Riverdale Country School

in New York as a Latin

teacher and as assistant

director of middle and upper

school admissions.

And then another opportunity

came his way

in 2014, and Hurd became

the director of upper

school at The Buckley

School in New York City.

While Hurd credits

his time at Buckley

as a “great professional

step forward,” he began

searching for more and

came across Lake Forest

Country Day School.

A midwestern-man at

heart, he was drawn to

moving back to the Midwest

as he and his wife

have plans to start a family

in the near future. He

was looking for a place

that would give him more

space and more fresh air,

while also having access

to a large city, Lake Forest

seemed like the perfect


As the interview process

began and he became

more familiar with the

school, he noted that his

philosophy aligned with


“When you first enter a

search like this, you start

to encounter the way a

school talks about itself,”

Hurd said. “And a lot of

the language in Lake Forest

Country Day School’s

mission resonated with


What he loved most

about the school’s mission,

“Inspired teaching,

academic rigor, attention

to individual needs, a

commitment to responsible


principles infuse every

aspect of life at Lake Forest

Country Day School

and define our dedication

to producing students of

strong character with a

year. Photos submitted

passion for learning,” was

the key concepts that were

right at the outset of the

statement. The concepts

most important to him

when he was searching

for a school, which also

aligned with his philosophy,

were inspired teaching,

attention to individual

needs, academic rigor

and making every child

feel known and loved.

“Everything I had read

about what 21st century

education should have is

already going on here,”

Hurd said. “I was almost

overwhelmed in a way.”

Now that his first year as

the new head of school at

Lake Forest Country Day

school is underway, Hurd

said he plans to get to

know the students, parents

and faculty at LFCDS.

“I am going to make it a

very deliberate goal to be

in the classrooms, at lunch

and learn as much as I can

about the magic that goes

on here,” Hurd said.

Joy Hurd began his new position as the head of school

at Lake Forest Country Day School on July 1.

From the Editor

Public Safety Day more than a ‘fun’ event

Alyssa Groh



hope you did not flip

right past this week’s

cover of The Lake

Forest Leader.

This past weekend,

Lake Bluff held its annual

Public Safety Day. Lake

Bluff’s Public Safety Day

brings a variety of fire

tricks, ambulance trucks,

cop cars and public works

trucks to the event for kids

to explore and see what

the inside looks like.

For little kids who

dream of being a police

officer, or a firefighter, this

day may have only created

more excitement and passion

to make their dream

come true later on in life.

Children and their parents

had the opportunity

to learn about all things

public safety. What does

a police officer really

do? How do firefighters

put out fires? What does

public works do?

The list is endless.

And while this was a

day of fun and learning

for local families, it had

a deeper meaning, in my


Police officers, firefighters

and public works staff

are an essential part to our


Each and every day police

officers and firefighters

work hard to keep Lake

Forest and Lake Bluff safe

communities. The men

and women who serve our

community work 365 days

a year to keep our community

safe and be there when

we need them.

It is without these workers,

our community would

not run as smoothly as it


Over the past few years

as editor of The Lake Forest

Leader, I have spoken

to our firefighters, police

officer and public works

staff on a variety of occasions.

While I may not see

them every single day, I

do have the opportunity

to speak to them over the

phone frequently. And

from the time I have spent

with them on the phone, it

is very clear how committed

they are to their jobs,

to help make Lake Forest

and Lake Bluff a better and

safe place for us all.

For these workers, it

is more than wearing

uniforms, riding in large

trucks with sirens and hosting

fun Safety Day events.

Their job never ends and

their jobs are demanding

and hard.

So, if you happen to

see a public works staff

member, police officer or

firefighter around town,

stop and thank them for all

they do to keep our communities


For me, their hard work

and dedication does not go

Dancers bring innovation, audience engagement to Ragdale event

Katie Copenhaver

Freelance Reporter

The Ragdale Foundation

in Lake Forest completed

this year’s Ring Series

with Dance-Scape on Saturday,

Sept. 15. It was one

of four public performances

held in the mansion’s

backyard using the temporary

ring installation.

Curated by choreographer/dancer

Kristina Isabelle,

it brought together

actors and dancers from

Hubbard Street Pre-Professional

Program and

Walkabout Theater Company.

According to Ragdale

Executive Director Jeffrey

Meeuwsen, the purpose

of the Ring Series

is threefold: to recognize

Ragdale’s rich cultural history,

encourage new artistic

creation and engage the

public. He noted during

his introduction that the

series takes place using a

ring installation because

when Howard Van Doren

Shaw originally built the

house and designed the

grounds for his family,

his playwright wife held

public performances in the

original ring space.

This year’s winning

design for the grounds is

Noodle Soup by Columbus,

Ohio-based architects

Galo Canizares and Stephanie

Sang Delgado, and

it was installed in June. It

consists of several vertical

structures covered in green

and yellow artificial turf

that have slopes, steps and

windows (or holes).

“The intent of this installation

was to have the

audience and performers

moving around and interacting

with the structures,”

Meeuwsen said.

That’s why they invited

Ragdale alumna Kristina

Isabelle to curate this

show. Through her company,

Kristina Isabelle

Dance, she is currently

working on “site-specific

performances bringing the

audience into nature with

movement, video, sound

and food,” per the website.

“Dance-Scape was not

only about the interaction

with the ring and all of

the fabulous performers

and costumes,” Isabelle

said. “It was also about the

idea of transformation and

spreading joy. I was looking

at the ideas of the ring

designers and their concepts

of fun and play, and

I took it to another level.”

In the beginning, one

dancer slid around on the

installation’s structures

and popped through the

windows, sometimes startling

audience members.

Isabelle called her The

Seeker. Five actor/dancers

in bright pink and orange

costumes on stilts who

charged through the space

with a sense of purpose

were The Guides. The

dancers in typical attire

of tank tops and leggings

were Us, Isabelle said.

Next, the dancers cycled

in and out of the ring returning

in different costumes.

There was a bird

sequence with a couple

of dancers in bird costumes

perching on top of

the ring’s structures and

the accompanist drummer

wearing a bird mask. They

were followed by a group

of invaders: insects, aliens

and birds of prey.

After that came a mixture

of animal-inspired

costumes, from a unicorn

to several dancers wearing

hats or crowns with antlers

and goat horns.

Then, Isabelle and the

dancers moved all the

noodle cushions into a

circle and invited the audience

to sit on them while

the accompanist cellist

played a solo in the center.

After that, the audience

members joined the

performance by sitting or

climbing on the structures

and joining in the dances.

William Corson


William Corson

Ellis, formerly of Lake

Forest, died at home on

Aug. 27. Titia, his wife of

sixty-one years, was by his

side. Born March 4, 1932

at the Presbyterian Hospital

in Chicago, Ellis was

raised in Lake Forest.

He was the youngest of

four sons, brothers Thorne,

Corson, and David, parents

Roberta Thorne and

George Corson Ellis. Ellis

attended Lake Forest

Country Day School. In

1950, he graduated from

Phillips Exeter Academy,

where he found his love

for athletics and singing.

He grew up spending summers

at the Thorne family

camp in Canada on Lake

Huron just outside Desbarats,

Ontario. As a graduate

of Yale University in 1954,

Ellis received a commission

as a second lieutenant

in the U.S. Air Force

through ROTC training.

He received his wings in

1955 and was assigned to

Laredo Air Force Base in

Texas where he was the

Base Public Information

Officer. Flying was one

of Ellis’s passions. He

became a squadron commander

and continued to

fly single engine jet aircraft.

During this time, he

began courting the love of

his life, Titia. To fulfill his

necessary flight hours, he

would fly in to various locations

to meet her. At the

Glenview Naval Air Station,

she would drive up

onto the tarmac which one

could do in those days and

pick Ellis up as he stepped

out of the cockpit. By the

end of his Air Force career,

Ellis had reached the rank

of Captain. In June 1957,

upon returning to Chicago,

Ellis and Titia married.

There followed a career

in business - first in manufacturing

and finance, followed

by investment and

British merchant banking.

He and Titia had three

children David (b. 1958),

Robin (b. 1960) and Billy

(b. 1961). In 1976, Ellis

left the business world to

return to school. He and

his wife both enrolled in

the doctorate program in

counseling Psychology at

Northwestern University,

where they received their

PhDs in 1982. For the next

fourteen years, Ellis and

Titia each had their own

private clinical practice as

well as a joint family practice

in the Chicago area.

Ellis taught at the Lake

Forest Graduate School

of Management 1985-90,

where he discovered he

had a natural gift in the

classroom. He loved teaching

and connecting with

the students and they loved

and respected him. They

moved to Santa Fe, N.M.

in 1990, allowing Titia to

concentrate on writing a

book and Ellis to focus on

painting oil landscapes and

continuing their love of

singing. In 2001, Ellis and

Titia moved to Woodstock,

Vermont, to be closer to

their daughter Robin and

her family. They quickly

fell in love with Woodstock,

becoming members

of the Universalist Unitarian

church and singing in

the choir. Ellis continued

his love of painting, leaving

behind an impressive

collection of beautiful oil

landscapes. Summer visits

to Desbarats on Lake

Huron continued: a magical

place he loved to share

with Titia, and the next

two generations. He often

talked about his mother,

who taught her sons that

there was a world to see

and explore, that it was

never too late to learn new

things, and to always follow

your dreams.

Ellis is survived by his

wife, Titia Ellis, three children

and eleven grandchildren.

David Ellis (Myra

Platt) of Seattle, Wash.,

and Dave’s kids Bailey and

Ruby, and stepson, Wilson.

Robin Ellis Driscoll

(Mark Driscoll) of Los Angeles,

Calif., and their kids

Rosie, Phoebe, Ian, Adam,

Tsehay, Mike and Jack.

Bill Ellis Jr. (Tess Weir) of

Portland, Ore., and Ellis’s

daughters Georgia and Camille.

Ellis is also survived

by his brother Corson Ellis

(Connie Ellis) of New

York City.

The black sheep of Glenview

New boba tea shop

adds new twists to

popular concept

Brittany Kapa

Contributing Sports Editor

Glenview’s Boba Club

knows it may be a black

sheep, but owner Steve Ha

is OK with that.

Ha’s latest business venture,

Boba Club, even dons

a black sheep on its logo

— a subtle way of letting

the community know his

place does things a little


Ha, an avid boba tea

drinker, would frequent his

local boba tea shop with

his wife three or four times

a week. One day, as Ha

looked around, he noticed

the constant line of guests

waiting outside the door.

And, he then realized

there was room for another

boba tea shop in Glenview,

one that did things a little


Ha and his wife opened

Boba Club, 1825 Waukegan

Road in Glenview,

just a few short weeks ago

and offer more than just a

grab-and-go experience to

its customers.

Boba Club encourages

patrons to grab a drink,

stay a while and work.

Long chats, homework

sessions or work duties

are encouraged by the incorporation

of private and

semi-private work spaces.

For those that want to

focus and work alone,

there are two private workstations

disguised as red

phone booths.

“The telephone booths

are really a throwback to

when I first moved here,”

Ha said.

Glenview’s downtown

area originally had phone

booths located across from

can be made with a variety of fruits, of which customers

choose three, and has tapioca balls at the bottom.

the library, and Ha wanted

to bring a little local Glenview

history into his shop.

“I wanted to make it like

this because I worked from

home before, and I was a

remote worker, so I was

always looking for places

like this,” he said.

Boba Club also has two

larger group work spaces,

both enclosed, in addition

to a general seating area

and a bigger open workspace

toward the back.

“I’m really happy since

we’ve opened to see the

regulars come in on their

bikes at 3:30 or 4 p.m. and

they’re in the rooms doing

their homework,” he said.

As for the menu, Ha

mixed traditional boba tea

flavors with more popular

and modern options for his


“We do things authentic

where they have to be, so

our jasmine milk tea, for

instance, it’s what you’re

going to expect when you

go into a typical boba tea

shop,” he said.

Part of that authentic

experience is making the

tapioca balls frequently,

so the flavor and texture

is what a customer would

expect from any boba tea


Boba Club’s tapioca is

cooked every three to four

hours, as Ha doesn’t want

his product sitting around

all day.

“That’s what I expect

when I go to a boba tea

shop,” he said.

Boba Club offers more

recognizable drink options

such as coffees and lattes

for customers looking for

a little caffeine.

Ha incorporated his version

of an international

dish he tried in Hong

Kong. The waffle puff ($5

classic, $8.50 waffle and

ice cream combination)

is a take on a traditional

street waffle served in

Hong Kong.

“The waffle has the texture,

bounce and chewiness

that you’re going to

get from the street waffle

in Hong Kong,” Ha said.

Boba Club’s waffle puff

is served with a variety of

ice cream flavors ranging

from traditional flavors

like vanilla to more exotic

ones like green tea.

editors recently ventured

to Glenview to get a taste

of what Boba Club has to


Ha prepared two different

versions of a fruit

freeze ($4 for a small,

$5 for a large), which includes

three different types

of fruit blended with ice

and served with chewy

tapioca balls.

Ha combined peach,

mango and strawberry to

create a thicker version of

the drink that was sweet

and near-perfect for a hot

late-summer day.

The other fruit freeze,

made with honey dew, cantaloupe

and watermelon,

had a lighter texture to it

but was still a sweet treat.

“Our drinks are somewhat

good for kids, there’s

a lot of sugar because of

the fruits and stuff, but it’s

all real,” Ha said.

Ha also let us sample

the waffle puffs. The first,

with the classic waffle,

similar in flavor to vanilla,

was served with green tea

ice cream and topped with

dried rose petals. The second,

a nod to cookies and

cream, was the chocolate

waffle puff served with

sesame ice cream and

topped with crushed chocolate

sandwich cookies.

Both of these sweet

treats strike a balance between

authentic and inauthentic

flavors, that work

well together, as was Ha’s


“I really want to keep

everything acceptable to

the people that live on the

North Shore,” he said.

Scouts upset Bears in Week 4 win

There is often not just

One of those losses was at

If Lake Forest makes

the playoffs this year for

the ninth straight season,

it may point to its win Friday,

that defined its season.

Although the Scouts (2-

on both sides of the ball,

they came up huge offensively

and defensively

when they needed to.

Lake Forest went into a

difficult road test and upset

the Bears, a preseason

the Scouts’ final touchdown sealing the game.

2. Ryan Cekay, WR — 1 touchdown reception, 1 touchdown


Cekay had a 23-yard touchdown catch to put the

a handoff.

3. Tommy Hanson, QB — 5-for-7, 56 yards passing, six

time they’ll be seniors.

We showed what we were

capable of.”

Lake Forest junior defensive

end Rylie Mills

was ecstatic about the


“This is a huge win for

us,” Mills (7 tackles) said.

“I still can’t believe it. My

head is all over the place

right now knowing what

we just accomplished.”

Lake Zurich had its

only score early on with

Jack Dwyer’s (136 yards)

2-yard touchdown run

with 2 minutes, 15 seconds

left in the first quarter.

The Scouts gave up almost

400 yards of offense.

But, they forced five turnovers

and had four stops

on fourth down, stepping

up and making big plays

when it counted.

“We had a rough start

to the season, but I think

things are clicking right

now on defense,” Mills

said. “We have a lot of

depth and guys are stepping

up and making big

plays. The pieces are starting

to come together.”

“In the end, yardage

doesn’t matter as much,”

Spagnoli said. “The scoreboard

is what counts. And

we were able to force a lot

of turnovers in the process

and made things tough on

their offense when we

needed to.”

In the second quarter,

Luke Nolan intercepted

quarterback Matt Mc-

Graw setting up a 27-yard

field goal by Carter Hiam

with 6:45 left in the half.

Then things changed

as Tommy Hanson had

to come in for Swartout

on the final series of the

first half. But, in the second

half under Hanson,

the Scouts started to get

in a rhythm. They took the

lead on Hanson’s 2-yard

touchdown pass to Ryan

Cekay with just under

seven minutes left in the

third quarter going up 10-


“We just asked Tommy

to be Tommy,” Spagnoli

said. “We know what

he can do well, and we

didn’t ask him to do anything

that he wasn’t already

capable of. He was

able to take advantage

and filled in that role nicely.”

But it wasn’t all Hanson

as Cekay received a handoff,

then threw a 72-yard

bomb to Breck Nowik for

the touchdown and a 17-7

lead with just over two

minutes left in the third.

“We’ve worked on that

play with Cekay in practice,”

Spagnoli said. “It’s

not actually a trick play.

Ryan made a great read

and had a very good throw.

That helped us continue to

keep momentum.”

The Bears moved the

ball, but couldn’t score.

And the Scouts forced two

more turnovers in the final

four minutes of the game

with Eddie Scheidler’s

interception stopping a

drive at the Scouts’ 19.

Then the ball was stripped

from McGraw and recovered

by Mills at the Bears

five. Three plays later,

Mac Uihlein ran it in from

two yards out increasing

the lead to 24-7 with just

over a minute left in the


“I was going to the

quarterback trying to get

a safety,” Mills said. “We

hit the quarterback and

the ball came out and I

dove in there for it. The

play worked out perfectly,

kind of like in a movie.”

Connor Morrison also

had an interception earlier

in the game while Clayton

Burton tipped what turned

out to be a backward pass

Scouts fall in shootout to New Trier

Michael Wojtychiw

Contributing Sports Editor

Lake Forest’s Allison Quackenbush battles a New Trier player for possession during the game that ended in a shootout loss to the Trevians

Sept. 12 in Northfield. Michael Wojtychiw/22nd Century Media

When two of the best

teams in the state face

off, the play on the field

gets elevated and makes

it seem like a postseason

game that’s going to decide

a state championship.

That was the feeling

Sept. 12 when Lake Forest

visited Northfield to

take on New Trier in the

teams’ first matchup of the


“That was exciting for

you, but my heart was

skipping a beat,” New

Trier coach Stephanie

Nykaza said.

The reason for that was

her Trevians had to hold

off the visiting Scouts for

a 5-4 shootout win.

With New Trier up 2-1

with over a minute left,

Lake Forest was looking

to tie the game and give

it an opportunity to win

the game in regulation or


That’s when Scouts’

Maggie Mick put in a shot

from in front of the goal to

tie the game with 1 minute,

1 second remaining in


“Addie (Sidles) in the

middle, she had a wide

open space, so she just

hit it and I was like ‘I’m

just going to go for the

tip,’” Mick said. “So I just

put my stick there to get

something, went to the

goalie. I honestly thought

I was going to hit the post

but luckily it went right in

the corner.”

The Scouts looked as if

they had actually tied the

game 30 seconds earlier,

but had a goal waved off.

Instead, it helped lead to

Mick’s heroics.

After a scoreless overtime

session and a brief

delay after the stadium

lights shut off, the game

headed to a shootout,

where Nykaza made a

bold move: she inserted

goalie Emmaliese Lauber

into the cage. Lauber

hadn’t played all season,

as she was recovering

from a torn labrum, and

had just started practicing

a couple days ago. Her

younger sister, Isabella,

had played goalie during


“Our senior (Emmaliese)

just came back to

practice yesterday, she had

a torn hip labrum, but she

came back yesterday and

she’s done a lot of 1v1’s

and said she could do it,”

the New Trier coach said.

“Her younger sister (Bella)

has done a great job in

goal but she doesn’t have

the experience her sister

does. Emma ended up taking

it and she did a great

job. She just came back

and that was really impressive.”

You wouldn’t be able

to tell that the elder Lauber

hadn’t played until

that night, as the senior

saved the first two shots

she faced from Mick and

Logan Hanekamp.

“Going into the shootout,

a lot of us are nervous,

but we know it’s

not the end of the world,”

Mick said. “We haven’t

practiced shootouts a lot,

so that might have been in

our minds, but at the end

of the day, it’s just a game

in the season, not playoffs

or anything. Just try

to get it in the goal and if

not, it’s not the end of the


While she was keeping

the Scouts off of the scoreboard,

Kathryn McLaughlin

and Paige Baldwin

were getting the Trevians

on the board with goals in

the team’s first two shootout

attempts. McLaughlin

had scored the game’s first

goal of the night when she

put the ball past the Lake

Forest goalie just minutes

into the contest.

After not converting on

their first two shots, the

next two Scouts to shoot,

Julia Hender and Gracie

McGowan, scored, giving

the visitors life in the

shootout. A New Trier

miss, followed by a Hillary

Cox conversion meant

that the Scouts’ hopes

were down to Sarah Considine.

If she made the

shot, the Trevians would

need to convert their next

shot to win. If not, the

game would be over.

Lauber made the save,

sending the Trevians off

to celebrate the big win.

The win marked the second

over some of the best

teams in the state, as the

Trevians defeated North

Shore Country Day last

week as well.

“This was a tough

game, a good game on

both sides,” Nykaza said.

“To come back like that,

that’s really hard what

they did. But for us to rebound,

because we were

looking like balloons that

were deflating when they

scored that goal, was great

to see.”

Both of the Trevians’

regulation goals were

scored in the first half,

with Baldwin scoring

New Trier’s second goal

with 5:27 remaining in the

first half. In addition to

Mick’s game-tying goal,

Hender scored in the first

half at the 19:50 mark.

“For us, what this game

showed us is that we’re

in control of our own

destiny,” said Lake Forest

coach Cat Catanzaro.

“When we needed to

score, we found a way to

do that and in games like

this, we got to practice

every aspect of a game.

Even if we don’t go to

overtime the rest of the

season, come state playoffs,

we’ve done it. We’ve

been there and against a

good team, so we’ve practiced

Woodlands Academy

knew that it had an uphill

battle ahead of them during

its matchup against

North Shore Country Day


Knowing they were facing

the defending IHSA

Class 1A state championships,

coach Jim Franke

wanted his players to just

have fun during the home

matchup Sept. 11.

“[I want them] to just

enjoy being out on the

court with one of the best

tennis players in the state,”

he said. “That may be the

best tennis player you’ll

ever be on the court.”

The Wildcats heeded

their coach’s advice during

the match.

“It was nice because it

pushed me to be better and

for me to work harder,”

said Genevieve Hesse, a

junior from Chicago.

The Raiders’s Claudia

Miller, the No. 1 singles

player, may have defeated

Hesse 6-1, 6-0 but she was

OK with how the match

turned out. Later, Hesse

laughed about her single

point against Miller.

“It was mostly because

of serving faults, but we

had a couple good rallies,

so I had some good consistency,

which was good and

that helped me get that one

point,” she said.

Franke was proud of

Hesse’s performance, and

that even gaining one point

against a player like Miller

meant she was winning

at one point during the


“The No. 1 singles spot

The competitive experience

against Miller only

benefitted Hesse in the

end, she said.

“I wasn’t really intimidated

because I knew it

was going to be a hard

match anyway,” Hesse

said. “I just tried to have

fun with it.”

The challenging play

continued on all courts

during the matchup.

Woodlands Academy’s

No. 1 doubles pair Elise

Albertson and Abigail

Hurtgen faced the Raiders’s

No. 1 doubles pair of

Vivian Miller and Caroline

Lommer who took the 6-2,

6-0 road win.

“Basically we just got

in the mindset that it’s just

going to be a fun game

where we can improve,”

Hurtgen said. “We don’t

really see these kinds of

players in practice so we

both said to each other,

‘Whatever happens we’re

going to get better.’”

Vivian Miller’s serve

was a bit of a problem in the

beginning of the first set,

but by the end the Wildcats

pair adjusted and were able

to control the return.

“She had a really wide

serve but I think by the

end we adjusted and got

in a little better positioning

for it,” Albertson

said. “When you start out

with those kinds of serves

you have to adjust a little


The Woodlands duo

did have a few takeaway

points that they hope will

help them in future meets.

“A lot of the points,

where we actually came

through and won, was

where we didn’t do as

much top spin and just

your traditional shot,”

Hurtgen said. “We did

more moving them around

and hitting the ball a little

bit deeper, and different

types of spin, and I think

that helped more in the end

than just hitting it back and


Woodlands kept it interesting

at No. 2 doubles

when Hailey Denton and

Daphne Ricketts held their

own against Edith Edwards-Mizel

and Gabbie

Kaplinsky when after tying

7-5, 4-6 the pairs were

forced to play a super-tie

breaker where NSCDS ultimately

won out 10-7.

Alex Arenson controlled

the play at No.

6-0, 6-0 over Mary Clare

Scalise. Number 3 doubles

played a competitive

match as well, but

NSCDS won out as Emily

Weil and Emily Yoo

topped Aine Heanney and

Ingrid Hu 6-4, 6-3.

“We were prepared for

a challenge, definitely, as

we usually are when we
