Pawlick named Local Legend for her wide-ranging advocacy efforts

Stephanie Kim

Freelance Reporter

John Ormsby, president of the History Center of Lake

Forest-Lake Bluff, introduces Marian Phelps Pawlick to

the audience.

Newly inducted Local Legend member Marian Phelps Pawlick (left) is interviewed by

Bill Kurtis, who is also a Local Legend honoree, during the History Center of Lake

Forest-Lake Bluff’s Local Legend event Sunday, Nov. 4, at the Hunter Family Education

Hall. Photos courtesy of Caitlin Saville Collins

Looking at Marian

Phelps Pawlick’s decadeslong

advocacy for the arts,

education and environmentalism,

one could call

her a legend.

The History Center of

Lake Forest-Lake Bluff

did just that on Sunday,

Nov. 4, adding Pawlick to a

list of local leaders who’ve

put Lake Forest and Lake

Bluff on the map.

Pawlick, who grew up in

Lake Forest and has lived

in Lake Bluff for several

decades, was a founder of

the Deer Path Art League

in 1954. She later became

the first woman to chair

the board of the Shedd

Aquarium in 1998.

Through the years, she

has also served on the

boards of Lake Forest College,

Chicago Symphony

Orchestra and Ravinia

Festival, and is a trustee of

Vassar College and a life

trustee of the Art Institute

of Chicago.

John Ormsby, president

of the history center, noted

such accomplishments

when he introduced Pawlick

as the 2018 Local Legend

to the dozens of people

who filled the Hunter

Family Education Hall.

“She has a very, very

rich, robust history of being

involved and really showing

a form of leadership

and having a concern about

the environment in which

she lives and really having

the ability to think about

others, rather than focusing

inwards,” Ormsby said.

“So, she’s very special.”

This was evident in

Pawlick’s interview with

renowned journalist Bill

Kurtis, who was honored

with his wife Donna La

Pietra as Local Legends in


Throughout the hourlong

fireside chat, Pawlick

talked less about her accomplishments

and more

about the causes she’s

been advocating for a long

time, like the “horrible

desecration” of the reefs

she witnessed when she

became a certified scuba

diver to write for a travel


“That’s when I decided

I wanted to scream about

it,” Pawlick said. “So I got

involved with the Shedd,

and I’ve been screaming

about it ever since.”

Pawlick also shared personal

anecdotes about life

in the Lake Forest-Lake

Bluff area and her exploration

of the world beyond

— from memories of being

pulled out of school

Friday afternoons to go

to the symphony with her

mom, to exciting adventures

of swimming with

dolphins and camping in


She especially enjoyed

telling the audience the

“wonderful American story”

her great grandfather,

father and brother who all

made strides in the fastener


“I don’t know how stories

like this can possibly

come to fruition in any

other country,” Pawlick

said. “It’s the imagination

and the industriousness of

the people.”

Local Legends started

in 2010 as the history

center’s chief fundraiser,

with a standing-room-only

program honoring astronaut

James Lovell, the

commander of Apollo 13.

Other honorees include architect

Adrian Smith, one

of the world’s foremost experts

on supertall towers;

John Bryan, former chief

executive officer of Sara

Lee; acclaimed musician

Richard Marx; and entrepreneur

Ellen Stirling.

When asked how she

felt to be honored in the

company of such people,

Pawlick was quick to credit

those who supported her

along the way.

“I really feel without all

those people that were integrated

together to help

me, I wouldn’t been able

to do a thing,” she said. “I

was very fortunate — fortunate

to have parents I did

who gave me a wonderful

education and a lot of

advice on how to live life.

That doesn’t just happen.”

Pawlick also noted her

appreciation for the Lake

Bluff-Lake Forest area,

calling the community a

“wonderful incubator” of

ideas where people are encouraged

to pursue their


“I never felt I was swimming

upstream,” she said.

Local organization shines light on global slave trade

Katie Copenhaver

Freelance Reporter

In the safe north suburbs

of Chicago, it’s hard to believe

that half a world away

in Ghana, West Africa, human

trafficking (modern

slavery) is still prevalent.

Raising awareness of this

issue was one purpose of

the Right To Be Free’s annual

reception Sunday,

Nov. 4 at Knollwood Club

in Lake Forest. The free

public reception served as a

general information session

for the organization as well

as a fundraiser to support

its ongoing mission.

Lori Dillon, president

and founder of Right To Be

Free and a longtime Lake

Forest resident, pointed

out in her presentation that

the International Labor Organization

estimates 40.3

million adults and children

worldwide work and live in

slavery. Her organization

is trying to alleviate the

problem on a local level in


The Lake Forest-based

nonprofit partners with

Right to Life/Africa in

Ghana to rescue, rehabilitate

and reintegrate children

who have been lured

into slavery. African native

Eric Peasah, an employee

of the U.N. agency the International


for Migration, also serves

as executive director of the

Ghana branch of Right To

Be Free and employs two

additional staff members.

“He’s honest to the

core,” said Dillon of

Peasah, who trains and

works closely with Interpol,

the Anti-Trafficking

Unit of the Ghana Police

Service, the Department of

Social Welfare, the Ministry

of Gender, Children and

Social Protection, Ghana

Immigration Service, the

Anti-Human Trafficking

Secretariat, law enforcement,

anti-terrorism and

security forces, NGOs and

intergovernmental organizations

who seek his expertise

to influence policy and

combat human trafficking

in Ghana and the West African

Sub-Saharan region.

Dillon explained that

she connected with Peasah

after watching a television

program on human trafficking

in Africa in which he

was profiled. She saw the

need to help stop slavery

and began working to raise

money and collaborate

with other human rights

organizations to support

Peasah’s onsite work.

Dillon started her nonprofit

in 2011, while Peasah

had been operating for at

least a decade longer.

“Human trafficking is

the fastest growing criminal

industry in the world,”

she said during her presentation.

“It is second in size

to the illegal drug trade,”

she continued and noted

that those two industries

plus the illegal arms trade

overlap and are “incestuous,”

so reducing any one

of them makes an impact

toward reducing all three.

Her presentation at the

reception showed some

of the children who have

been recently helped by

the organization. Fishing

and gold mining are two

industries that rely heavily

on child slaves. Some of

the children flee dysfunctional

family lives hoping

that through employment

they will have better lives.

However, many of them

have not attended school

and are illiterate, so they

unknowingly sign contracts

that bind them to masters.

Other times parents think

that sending their children

off to work in lucrative industries

will help support

their families and also do

not realize they are dealing

with illegal slave traders.

Dillon also talked about

the organization’s prevention

initiatives, which are

Boots for Books, educational

outreach and a

micro-grant program.

Boots for Books provides

funds for children who

are currently not enrolled

in school with reading instruction

and soccer training,

which culminates in

an annual competition in

both. The educational outreach

program is working

with five communities,

where human trafficking is

endemic, to teach parents,

plus the village chiefs and

elders, how to avoid human

traffickers who seek

to recruit their women and

children. The micro-grant

program gives seed money

to the most vulnerable female-headed

households so

they can learn to produce

something that will support

their families, from charcoal

making to gardening

to raising animals.

Among the event attendees

were Crystal Dyer and

James Bowers, who are

business partners from Chicago.

Dyer owns the Gone

Again Travel and Tours

agency and Bowers is an

attorney who concentrates

in civil rights and owns

Turn Back the Hands of

Time Antiques. They are in

the same building, owned

by Bowers, on Chicago Avenue

in the west side Austin


Dyer also operates the

nonprofit Chicago Austin

Youth Travel Adventures,

which provides cultural

programming to inner city

Lake Bluff asks residents

to complete storm water


As part of the Village

of Lake Bluff’s examination

of its storm water infrastructure

and long-term

planning efforts, the Village

is soliciting information

from residents on any

flooding or sewer backups

they have experienced

in their homes and neighborhoods

through an online

survey. The survey,

now available, contains

several questions pertaining

to flooding and sewer

backups as well as general

questions about the basement

plumbing in residents’


This information will be

used in part to ensure that

the hydraulic model accurately

identifies problem

areas within the Village.

For the this study to be

successful, it is critical that

the Village has a clear understanding

of the issues

experienced by residents

during rainfalls. Residents

are encouraged to

visit www.surveymonkey.

com/r/XKHNHGW and

fill out the survey.

Any amount of information

provided will be helpful

even if a resident has

not had flooding occur in

their home or is not sure

how to answer some of

the questions. A link to the

survey is also available on

the front page of the Village

of Lake Bluff website

at www.lakebluff.org.

On Monday, July 9, the

Village Board of Lake

Bluff approved an agreement

with Christopher B.

Burke Engineering LTD

(CBBEL) to expand on

previous isolated storm

sewer studies and look at

the Village’s overall storm

sewer system. This study

will evaluate the existing

storm sewers by creating

a comprehensive hydraulic

model and then identify

potential Village projects

to improve storm water

infrastructure performance

during rainfalls. This study

is expected to be completed

in June of 2019.

Construction of new halfway house at Deerpath Golf Course begins

Alyssa Groh, Editor


The Dominique family,

Lake Bluff

Hi, I am Harvey the

Wonder Dog and

I live in Lake Bluff

with my mommy. I

LOVE to swim at the

beach as much as I

love to eat and romp

with my pals. There

are lots of places to

get treats in Lake

Bluff and everyone is nice and they pet me. I am

almost 10 and a 1/2 years old!

HELP! The Lake Forest Leader is in search of more pets.

Revere Drive, Suite 888, Northbrook, IL 60062.

For the past few years

the City of Lake Forest has

made a series of improvements

at Deerpath Golf

Course including joining

an agreement with KemperSports

in 2012. The

City and the Parks and

Recreation Department

realized more improvements

were needed at the

course, and thus began a

major fundraising effort

with the help of community

members, Friends

of Lake Forest Parks and

Recreation Foundation

and a fundraising committee

at the golf course.

Their goal is to raise $3.5

million dollars for a series

of projects at the course.

Among those projects is

the construction of a new

halfway house, which is

projected to cost $385,000.

The ground breaking for

the halfway house was

Saturday, Nov. 4.

Sally Swarthout, the director

of parks, recreation,

forestry and cemetery said

construction will take approximately

four to five

months to complete and

the City hopes for the

house to be open before

Memorial Day.

The halfway house will

be between holes 6 and

helped raise money for the golf course, break ground on Saturday, Nov. 3 where the

new halfway house will be built. Photos Submitted

regular bathroom on the

north end of the course…

and it is going to give golfers

the opportunity to grab

a drink,” Swarthout said.

“The halfway house will

also provide some space

for those that are out there

in the winter cross-country

skiing. It will offer a

rest space and there will

be a fire place. It will add

a great new fixture to the

course and the golfer and

user experience.”

kids year round and offers

an annual trip to Ghana.

“We want kids to get

outside of their own heads

and experiences and learn

about the world,” she said.

“Our program is for young

people. Then, young people

educate their parents.”

Both organizations are

targeting Ghana because,

“It is progressive, and still

they have tribes running the

villages,” Dyer said.

Silent auction and raffle

prizes were donated by a

number of local businesses

and residents, including

Yuh Schabacker-Koppel

and Marcus Koppel and

Mark Wise of Greenwise

Organic Lawn Care, who

were in attendance. Additional

donors included

Dee’s Bees, Deer Path Golf

Course, Deer Path Inn, Katie

Ford, Gifted Lake Forest,

Knollwood Club, Lake

Forest Book Store, Mavery

Public House, Patterson

Glassworks, Starbucks and

Sunset Foods.

Dillon acknowledged

that the problem of human

trafficking can seem overwhelming

when you look

at the millions who are

victims of it. She said that

is why Right To Be Free

works on a grassroots level

in one nation. She hopes

with more funding they can

expand what they are doing

in Ghana to other nations.

The organization receives

some foundation grant

money but relies mostly on

individual donations.

Voting in elections is important

Alyssa Groh


Unless you live

under a rock, you

are aware that elections

took place this week.

And while this was not a

presidential election, it was

still a very important election.

Let’s be honest, all

elections are important and

they all make a difference.

Over the past few weeks

and months, The Lake Forest

Leader has reached out

to local candidates to learn

about what issues are most

important to them and


From Page 9

what changes they would

make if elected.

A few weeks ago, we

ran our first issue of election

coverage where we

asked local candidates that

affect the residents of Lake

Forest and Lake Bluff to

answer a questionnaire

to help inform voters on

how they feel about certain


Our hope in doing this

was to help residents learn

who candidates are, which

races are contested or not,

and that elections were

quickly approaching.

By the time you are

reading this, elections will

have already passed and

you will know the results

of who was elected and

who was not. Unfortunately,

due to our printing

schedule we cannot run

our election coverage until

our next issue on Thursday,

Nov. 15.

Jerry Aulisio of The AT

Group delivered a presentation

about the site plan

and floor plans for the ice

center, located at 1851

Landwehr Road.

According to Parisi,

project manager for the

renovation and expansion

efforts, the site will feature

a drop-off area, 196

parking spots, including

nine that meet the standards

of the Americans

with Disabilities Act, and

a service drive for zambonis

and other ice center


The improved ice center

will feature three skating

rinks. The existing rink

currently has a studiosized

rink as well as a fullsheet

ice rink, and a third

full sheet of ice is planned

for the renovation.

well as a spacious and

But, have no fear we

will still be at a variety of

voting parties for candidates

and we will be

talking to candidates to get

their reactions after results

come in.

While we cannot get our

election coverage in the

paper until a week after

it has happened, we will

have all stories up online at

LakeForestLeader.com the

night of the election. This

means, by the time you are

reading this our stories will

already be up online for

you to read.

We will also be adding

more details to each

story throughout the week

so residents can be as

informed as possible.

East Lake Academy graduate competes for $100K on ‘Teen Jeopardy’

Alyssa Groh, Editor

Isabella Pagano, a graduate

of East Lake Academy,

grew up watching

“Jeopardy” and “Teen

Jeopardy” with her parents.

A few months ago

when she was watching

“Teen Jeopardy” with

her parents, she decided

she wanted to apply for a

chance to be on the show.

“This year ‘Jeopardy’

had a teen test to take and

I said ‘why not, what do

I have to lose?’” said Pagano,

who is now a freshman

at Carmel Catholic

High School in Mundelein.

“I took the test in

March and I didn’t expect

to get anything back

because I was only going

to be a freshman and

there are probably a lot of

older kids who have more

knowledge than me.”

“Teen Jeopardy” is for

teens ages 14-17 who answer

trivia questions for a

chance to win $100,000.

More than 8,000 teens

took the test to be on the

show, but only 15 were


In March, Pagano had

to go through a series of

tests and auditions to earn

a spot on the game show.

In the first phase, Pagano

said applicants signed

in to take an online test at

the same time. Applicants

were faced with 50 questions

in which they had

to answer within approximately

six seconds.

After completing the

test, Pagano said the producers

selected teens with

the highest scores, and

250 of them moved onto

the audition phase.

In the next phase the

teens had to take another

50-question test, but this

time in person. After taking

the test they played a

mock game of “Jeopardy.”

“We did some actual

game play with the buzzer

because they wanted to

see if you could participate

in the real game and

not just have the book

smarts, but also be able to

perform in front of other

people,” Pagano said.

She also added that

during the audition she

wasn’t very nervous because

she knew she was

young, and if she didn’t

make it this time around

she could try again in the

years to come.

“I really did not expect to

get anything back at all, I

didn’t know how my scores

would measure up against

other people,” she said.

But, remaining calm

may have been the key for

Pagano, who got the news

after returning home that

she landed a spot on the


Pagano said she did

prepare and study for the

tests, audition and the actual


“I watched previous

tournament episodes to

get a feel for it,” Pagano

said. “I also practiced hitting

the buzzer with the

a pen to get my timing

down. I brushed through

trivia and read through

notes from school.

“I have always had a

love for trivia and [East

Lake Academy] did a

good job of preparing

me by giving me all this

information and helped

me learn it really well. I

retained the information

very well and I was able

to remember it on the fly.”

Isabella Pagano (right), a graduate of East Lake Academy, stands with “Teen Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek as she

competes on Teen Jeopardy. The show will air on ABC7 Chicago Nov. 7-18. Photo Submitted.

During filming, Pagano

said the cameras did not

make her nervous as she

was too focused on the

game to think about the

cameras and being on TV.

“It was all fun,” Pagano

said of competing on the

show. “I was there to have

a good time and if I won it

was going to be amazing,

and if I didn’t it was OK

because it was an amazing

experience to be able to

take part in.”

Pagano could not give

details on how she did in

the competition on “Teen


To find out how she did,

and to cheer her along

the way, tune into “Teen

Jeopardy” on ABC7 Nov.

quarter final match is

scheduled to air on ABC7

Chicago at 3:30 p.m.

Bombay Bowl provides quick, healthy meal options

Megan Bernard

Contributing Editor

Fast, fresh and healthy

— those are three words

Ravi Rawat used to describe

his Northbrook restaurant

Bombay Bowl.

The establishment at

3111 Dundee Road opened

in late July and aims to

provide fast, yet healthy,

Chinese food with quality

ingredients at an affordable


Since its opening, the

restaurant’s concept and

business has been going

“excellent,” said Rawat,

who has more than 25

years of experience in the


Rawat, alongside his

head chef Raghu Singh,

chose the Northbrook location

because of its proximity

to corporate businesses

in the area, he said.

“Because of the corporate

business presence in

this neighborhood, there

was a great opportunity for

[a restaurant],” Rawat said.

“We get a big lunchtime

rush from Underwriter’s

Laboratory, Walgreens and

Discover. … In the evening,

we get a lot of business

from all the activities

happening in our shopping

center, too.”

During the lunch hours

from noon-3 p.m., there is

an “express lunch buffet,”

Rawat said, where customers

pay for a bowl ($8.80)

and then choose the ingredients

to include.

“The process takes less

than two minutes,” he said.

“Once you get it, you can

be in and out in 10 minutes;

so it’s a nice, quick

lunchtime break.”

The strip mall location

itself is modern, providing

plenty of tables and booths,

along with a mounted TV

on the wall and self-serve

fountain drinks.

The chicken Thai red curry dish ($8.99) showcases

chicken cooked in Thai-style red curry and coconut

milk and flavored with Thai spices and herbs.

Chicken, rice and spices cook together in a Szechuan

sauce in Bombay Bowl’s chicken sczewan fried rice


For dinner, Bombay

Bowl offers made-to-order

options, including meat,

vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free


Rawat prides himself

on the variety of those

options, plus sourcing

his food locally, like the

antibiotic-free chicken he

purchases from Harrison’s

Poultry Farm in Glenview.

If knowing exactly what

goes into each dish wasn’t

already enough, once a

customer places their order,

the chefs cook the

food fresh right behind the

counter, as well.

22nd Century Media

editors got a glimpse of

the fired up woks when we

visited Bombay Bowl last

week. Since the lunch buffet

was wrapping up, we

tried several of the madeto-order

dishes the Northbrook

eatery offers.

Described on the menu

as a “popular Indo-Chinese

dish,” we started with

the chili chicken ($8.99).

peppers and onions mixed with traditional Chinese sauces.

green peppers and onions

and packed some heat with

chili powder, garlic and

lemon juice.

The chicken dish paired

well with the vegetable

hakka noodles ($7.99),

which was easily one of

our favorites. The thin

boiled noodles were stir

fried with veggies and

topped with a subtle, but

sweet, sauce.

Next, we had the chicken

thai red curry ($8.99). The

white meat was less spicy

than the chili chicken and

was cooked in Thai-style

red curry and coconut milk

then topped with spices

and herbs.

We ended our meal with

a side of vegetable sczewan

fried rice ($7.99). It had stir

fried vegetables mixed with

cooked rice and was tossed

in the wok with vegetable

oil, pepper and Szechuan

sauce. The rice was different

from the typical takeout

side most are accustomed

to since it had more of nice

citrus flavor.

To top off a meal, Bombay

Bowl offers ice cream

and chocolate roll desserts,

and of course, you can’t

leave without a fortune

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Lauren Garriques

Garriques is a senior at

Lake Forest High School

and runs cross-country,

swimmer and water polo.

How did you start

running cross-country?

I was living in Texas

for my elementary school

years, and when I was

8 my school had a 5K. I

trained for that with my

dad and I got hooked.

What is it about crosscountry

that you love?

I struggle with sports

that involve coordination,

that’s one thing. Crosscountry

was kind of a way

that I could excel in a sport

that involves one thing.

What is the most

challenging part of

running cross-country?

The same thing that

makes it the most enjoyable,

which is the mental

aspect. There are no

breaks. Even during your

worst races you can’t quit

– you can’t get subbed

out – you have to mentally

turn it around.

What is your most

memorable moment as

a Scout?

I think I would have to

say this season, running

with a team of girls that

was as awesome and supportive

as they were – that

made it really special.

What is the best

advice you have

gotten from your


I think the best advice I

got was my freshman year

from coach Steven Clegg.

He said, “Not every day

had to be a hard day.” I

came into cross-country

with a very aggressive attitude,

and it helped to relax

and ultimately I was able

to train better.

What do you do to


I do yoga and gardening.

What is one thing

people don’t know

about you?

I’m really into heavy

metal music. I love Beyond

Creation, Strapping

Young Lad, The Black

Dahlia Murder and Cryptopsy.

If you could travel

anywhere in the

world, where would

you go?

My brother and I have

22nd Century Media File Photo

always wanted to go in a

hiking trip, so either West

to like Washington, Montana

or Oregon; or East

like to Massachusetts or


If you could try

another sport, one you

haven’t done before,

which one would you


I’ve pretty much tried

and failed at anything

that involves throwing or

catching, so I would try


Where do you want to

go to college and what

do you want to study?

I want to be a mechanical

engineer. I’m not 100

percent sure where yet, but

I definitely want to go to

some place that has a good

STEM program that is also

a DIII school, because I

feel that I could make a

contribution there.

Boys Soccer Coach of the Year

Lara’s themes key to team’s year

Michal Dwojak, Contributing

Sports Editor

Reggie Lara has a theme

for his Glenbrook South

teams each season.

After losing close battles

for a majority of his first

season as the head coach

of the Titans last year, this

season’s theme was resilience.

Lara challenged his

players during the offseason

to take ownership of

the team’s success and become

mentally strong with

each blow they take.

The Titans responded

with a historic season,

ending with a 12-7-5 overall

record, finishing second

in a difficult Central

Suburban League South

and winning their first regional

title in seven years.

His leadership, and team’s

success, helped Lara earn

22nd Century Media’s

2018 Boys Soccer Coach

of the Year honor.

“I know we had a very

successful season, but I

think at the end of the day,

I think it’s a testament to

how hard the boys played

this whole season,” Lara

said. “I think it’s an award

Game of the Week:

I think we’re all a


Lara wanted to set an

identity for his program

when he took over in

2017. There were plenty

of learning curves when

he took over as he tried

to learn more about his

players and teach them his

philosophies, leaving little

time to actually work on

the tactics he wanted to apply

into their matches.

This season was different.

Lara had six returning

starters and he knew

many of the new members

from his time of coaching

the sophomore team a few

years ago. He also met with

senior leaders Jimmy Mc-

Mahon and Gavin Morse to

talk about the goals of the

season, and they took the

leadership roles necessary

for the team to succeed.

Instead of Lara wasting

time explaining program

philosophies, like a player

turning his head when he

receives a ball, the seniors

took on ownership and addressed

those issues. With

the free time, Lara could

explain tactics more and

plan out what to do for

team’s success.

LF’s Schmitt has fairytale ending to cross-country season

Brittany Kapa, Sports Editor

Nathan Schmitt had

a “magical” race at the

IHSA Class 2A state meet.

The Lake Forest High

School junior finished as

the state’s runner up after

completing the Saturday,

Nov. 3 race in 14 minutes

47.96 seconds, a new personal

record for the boys

cross-country runner.

“There is something

about that course that no

matter what you do you’re

going to run faster than

usual,” he said. “I went

through the first mile in

4:45, and I went through

and thought, ‘This was the

most relaxed I’ve ever felt

running a 4:45.’”

That relaxed first mile

led Schmitt to scoring only

one point for his team at

the state meet, who finished

13th overall with

297 points.

Prior to Saturday’s race,

Schmitt had only run the

state course twice. He took

a trip down after he won

the Antioch Regional and

then Friday, Nov. 2 during

the team’s run through.

Despite the preparation,

Schmitt didn’t know what

the state title race had in

store for him.

“People didn’t really

know what I was going to

do,” Schmitt said. “I didn’t

know what I was going to


“I was one of the few

people who had never seen

that course before. Even on

RunnersSpace.com, they

had me as the unknown because

I had never run a race

on that course. They didn’t

know what to expect from


Schmitt got out early after

the gun, true to his running

style, and held the lead

for roughly half the race

before the eventual state

title winner, senior Mathias

Powell, passed him.

Schmitt tried to keep pace

with Powell, but he proved

to be too fast.

Going into the race

Schmitt thought that he

would have to fight his way

out of a pack of top runners,

but that too didn’t go

as Schmitt expected.

“I really anticipated that I

would be in a pack or something,

and that there would

be a big moment where I’d

have to make a move,” he

said. “I didn’t know if it

was just because I went out

with the first guy, and I got

a few seconds ahead, but I

never really encountered

that situation.”

Schmitt’s finish wasn’t a

surprise to his coach, Matt

Jerina, who knew the junior

had what it took to compete

with the top runners in Illinois.

“I was ecstatic,” Jerina

said, of watching Schmitt

cross the finish line. “I was

talking with the assistant

coach, and there is so much

talent right at the top there.

I knew he was in that mix.

“It was awesome to see

him do as well as he did.”

Jerina was just as proud

of the entire team as he was

of Schmitt’s individual accomplishment.

“It was awesome how

well they did,” Jerina said.

“It gives us room for improvement.

The only senior

we’re losing from that

group is Eli Fietsam, who

had a great race. It was an

awesome way for him to

cap off his high school career.”

Fietsam crossed the finish

line at 16:26.97 and in

135th place. Junior Ben

Rosa crossed the finish

line second for the Scouts,

in 40th, with a time of

15:36.42. Sophomore Kaleb

Whiteside was less

than nine seconds behind

Rosa; he finished 53rd in


Casey Hippel, another

sophomore runner on the

team, lost his shoe around

the 800-meter mark and

continued on without it to

finish 166th in 16:55.50.

“It’s exciting knowing

that all these guys are coming

back next year, and

they’ve had that experience

going down state and racing

on that course,” Jerina

said. “Hopefully we make

it down next year and do

even better.”

Wildcats junior takes top honor at horse show

Brittany Kapa, Sports Editor

From the moment Anna

Serkland saw her sister

on a horse, she knew she

wanted to ride too.

The Woodlands Academy

of the Sacred Heart

junior started riding at 8

years old. Now, at 16, she

has grown more dedicated

to the sport with each passing


One thing she did not

expect, however, was how

she would connect with

her beloved horse: Carter.

Carter, a former race

horse, was first bought

by Serkland’s trainer,

Amy Farmer, of Celebration

Farm in Lake Forest.

Farmer knew Serkland

was looking to buy her

own horse, and Farmer had

a feeling the pair would be

a good fit.

“As a trainer, my number

one priority is always

safety, for both horse and

rider,” Farmer said. “The

saving grace was that I

owned him.”

Serkland and Carter,

after an admittedly rough

year of getting to know

each other, now work in


Serkland and Carter

won first place Sept. 28-

30 at the Northern Illinois

Hunter Jumper Association’s

2018 finals in the

children’s medal division.

Serkland finished second

in the $2,500 hunter derby

– where she competed

against 31 other professional

and non-professional

riders – and won reserve

champion in her junior

hunter over fences classes.

The three-day competition

tested Serkland and

Carter’s ability to work

together as horse and rider.

Which hasn’t always come

easy for the pair.

“I’m so proud of him

and how far he’s come,”

Serkland said. “I see

changes in myself too. On

days where he’s not having

a great day I can deal

with it, where as before I

would get scared and then

he’d get tense and then

we’re both tense.”

Serkland was able to get

Carter in the right mindset

before it was their turn to

show, thankfully. After she

got them through the first

jump, and she was in her

first turn, Carter was on

his rhythm and with some

sage advice from Farmer

is was smooth sailing from


“At that point my trainer

said relax and it just all fell

into place,” Serkland said.

“I felt my rhythm and it

just felt right.”

It wasn’t always smoothing

sailing for Serkland

and Carter though, Farmer

said. During the first year

the pair was together,

when Serkland was just 14

years old, Carter would often

buck her off during lessons.

It’s taken two years

for Serkland to earn Carter’s

trust, and vice versa.

“I’ve always believed in

the horse and I’ve always

believed in the rider,”

Farmer said. “It was just a

matter of meshing the two

of them together to become

a team.”

In addition to strengthening

her relationship with

her horse, Serkland has devoted

her free time to be a

student of the sport.

“She is not just, ‘I’m

here,’ and take the horse,

get on, ride for a half hour,

get off and leave,” Farmer

said. “She works for every

piece of it, so to see her

have a big win like that

There is a certain

amount of danger in the

sport Serkland loves so

much, but that has never

scared the young rider off.
