Loyola’s Class of 2019 celebrates the ‘big little things’

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

As members of the

Loyola Academy Class of

2019 finish their four-year

chapter at the Wilmette

school, a new one awaits

them in the fall when most

head off to college.

For many of the 493

students, that will include

new challenges and experiences,

like being away

from their families for an

extended period of time,

being surrounded by people

they don’t know and

the rigors of secondary education,

just to name a few.

Many of them, like valedictorian

Bridget Hickey,

are happy with how the

school has prepared them

for their future.

“I think Loyola has

definitely prepared all of

us very well for our future,

whatever that is for

each of us,” she said. “Just

with the level of coursework

and the relationships

we’ve made with teachers,

we’ve all kind of been able

to just be better people

and be more prepared for

whatever it is that we’re

heading, or whatever path

we’re heading on. Especially

for me, I’m planning

on going into the medical

field, so I think Loyola’s

science department has really

prepared me and students

like that to get into

that, to get into that field

Graduate Christopher Hara (center), of Wilmette,

receives his diploma from his father, Emmett (right), and

Loyola Academy President Rev. Patrick McGrath, S.J.

and to know and to be prepared

for the level of work

that will come with that.”

The Loyola Class

of 2019 faced a number

of hardships that

other schools may not

go through, including a

change in leadership as

Charlie Heintz took over

as principal after the resignation

of Dr. Kathryn


Since then, Heintz has

been named the school’s

full-time principal and

looks to lead the academy

into the future.

“In the last few years

I’ve had access to a lot

of students, and it was really

great to have built up

those relationships prior

to ascending to this position,”

he said. “I’m not going

to say it was seamless,

but I think having had the

chance to work with students

in a variety of different

activities rather it was

our LA way programming,

or our entrepreneurship

group I was able to build

really strong relationships

so I felt like I stepped into

this role and I knew a good

portion of the senior class


This year’s class is the

first that has seen multiple

years of the LA Way program,

a program that is designed

in developing leadership

skills, a program

started last year.

Heintz made sure to

spotlight the college counseling

department, especially

Jamie Simon, who

has been key with working

in the Chicago Scholars

Program. Loyola became

involved with the program,

one that is a cooperative

group between colleges

and universities and under

represented minority students

who live in the city

University’s Welsh-Ryan Arena in Evanston. Photos by

of Chicago. Students who

are identified as college

scholars and meet those

requirements can go and

in a short interview format

with a variety of schools,

generally get determinations

on admissions and

levels of financial aid, if

not that day within a very

short period of time. This

year around 25 students

were named Chicago


Heintz noted that of the

493 graduating seniors,

they are attending 131

different colleges. Eightynine

percent were accepted

to either their first or second

choice school. And

146 were accepted to every

school they applied to.

The student leadership,

led by senior Student

Council President Samantha

Mallahan, felt that they

were heard in everything

they wanted to accomplish

this year and that goes

back to the administration

and faculty’s willingness

to listen to them.

“One of the biggest

things is that I think all

the adults there, they were

helpful and so supportive

and they all want to

make sure that our voice

is heard,” Mallahan said.

“We had a lot of meetings

with like the principal and

all of the other people who

want to come at the school,

and they wanted so, what

we wanted and what

we thought needs to be

changed and what would

be better for the school,

and we basically get freedom

to kind of share our

ideas and hear our feedback,

and they’re very accepting

of what we have to

say, and I think them being

so encouraging of us taking

the bigger role really


Hickey summed it up

well in her valedictorian


“Deliberate and purposeful

acts, regardless

of size, define who we are

as a community and allow

us to overcome challenges.

As a class, we

have supported each other

through difficult times;

we have motivated each

other through small acts

of kindness and love,”

Hickey said. “It is in these

moments where we find

God’s grace, and, more

importantly, where we

realize each of us has the

power to become an instrument

of God’s grace.

“While these small examples

may seem insignificant

in the grand scheme

of things, they are rooted

in the relationships we

form. Friendship remains

proof of God’s grace, and

these small moments: actions,

deeds, gestures...

they transform the ordinary

into extraordinary.”

“I wanted to give the speech

because I’m so grateful for my

experience at New Trier,” she

said. “I wanted share my pride

with everyone.”

Neumann said New Trier’s

motto has inspired her throughout

her four years at the high

school. Next year, she’ll continue

implementing the motto and

further her studies at University

of Madison-Wisconsin’s business


“What an inspiring blueprint to

shape our lives moving forward:

to continue to commit our minds

to inquiry, hearts to compassion

and lives to service,” Neumann

said while addressing her class at

commencement. “We have been

given the tools to reach higher

and be better — to live the motto

of New Trier — and now it is

your time to do it.

“Be passionate about something,

anything, commit your

mind to it, get involved, and

leave your mark, no matter how

small. You don’t have to be the

president of the United States —

who says you couldn’t? — or end

world hunger, but do something.”

Wilmette’s Herguth carved

A golden era of Chicago

newspaper journalism

can arguably be said

to have occurred from the

mid-1950s into the 1980s,

when the internet began to

undermine the printed daily

newspaper business model.

Armed with a combination

of grand wordsmiths,

street-smart columnists,

relentless investigators,

old pros who could rewrite

Bible chapters in an hour if

asked, the occasional scallywag,

and lots of shoe

Times, Chicago Tribune,

Chicago Today and Chicago

Daily News slugged it

out day by day, deadline by

deadline, to beat the competition,

and in the process

grab readers’ attention.

In the midst of that colorful

journalistic maelstrom

stood Bob Herguth, who

during his tenure at the

Chicago Daily News from

1955 to 1978 and the Chicago

Sun-Times from 1979

to 1999 carved out a kinder,

village staff draw up final

approval documents, which

The proposed mixed-use

redevelopment plan for the

Lake Cook Road, would

include up to 315 luxury

apartments in a five-story

would sit atop two levels

of indoor parking containing

432 parking stalls for

the residential building. It

would also house a grocery

store and several restaurants

of new retail development,

as well as redevelopment

of approximately 72,000

square feet of the west end

a century ago to honor the

Village’s fallen World War

I soldiers.

In November 1921, the

community planted a tree

and placed a boulder at the

base of the tree honoring

Glencoe’s fallen World War

I soldiers. Village President

Larry Levin recited

the words of Otto Barnett,

a founder of the Glencoe

Public Library, from the

dedication of the park in

1921: “Honor the dead by

serving the living. ... Let

this boulder in witness our

pledge as individuals and

as a community that we

shall ever cherish and valiantly

guard that priceless

heritage for which they


This year, Glencoe has

been celebrating its sesquicentennial,

the 150th anniversary

of its incorporation

in 1869. Thus, the Village

has been commemorating

its history this year and the

Memorial Day ceremony

was no exception.

Levin, Glencoe Historical

Society president Ed

Goodale and former Glencoe

Public Library executive

director Peggy Hamil

told the stories of Village

residents who served in

World War II, which included

27 fallen soldiers.

Glencoe’s population during

World War II was approximately

6,800 and has

grown to just under 9,000.

“When we look at that

history, what we find is a

small-sized town that produced

oversized efforts in

support of our nation and

its principles,” Levin said.

The Glencoe Boy Scouts

raised the colors and led

the pledge of allegiance.

New Trier student Anahi

Toolabian sang the national


Following the national

anthem, veterans in attendance

were asked to raise

their hands to be acknowledged

by the public, who

responded with applause.

The Glencoe Girl Scouts

laid the wreath and Central

School student Rachel

Miller played “Taps.” Rev.

Dwayne Gary of St. Paul

AME Church served as the

master of ceremony and

Rev. Scott Himel of North

Shore United Methodist

Church gave the invocation.

“We’re here today to

honor and remember those

who have lost their lives in

service to this country and

fought for its ideals,” Gary


Former Village Manager

Bob Morris and Glencoe

Historical Society board

member Evey Schweig

read the names from the

Roll of Honor, which includes

the Village’s fallen

soldiers from World Wars I

and II and the Vietnam and

Korean Wars. Following

the reading of the names,

a moment of silence was

held in their memory.

“When we read the

names of all of those who

fought and died for their

country, we should remember

what they fought for:

democracy, freedom for all

people and human dignity

and rights,” Hamil said.

Gary concluded the ceremony

by reciting the words

of James Garfield at Arlington

National Cemetery

at the first Memorial Day

in May 1868: “We do not

know one promise these

men made, one pledge

they gave, one word they

spoke, but we do know

67 New Trier students awarded Seal of Biliteracy

Submitted by New Trier

Sixty-seven New Trier

seniors are recent recipients

of the Seal of Biliteracy,

an award granted

by the Illinois State Board

of Education and given by

New Trier High School’s

Modern and Classical Languages

Department in recognition

and celebration of

students who demonstrate

a high level of proficiency

in English and one or more

other languages.

Students demonstrate

their language proficiency

by earning an English

score of 21 or higher on

the ACT or a score of 4.8

on the ACCESS exam.

Students can show proficiency

in another language

earning a 4 or a 5 on the

AP (Advanced Placement)

language exam or by taking

a state approved test,

such as the AAPPL (Assessment

of Performance

toward Proficiency in Languages)

exam, and earning

an Intermediate High or

Advanced score.

Learning another language

prepares students

to be citizens of the global

community by developing

an awareness and appreciation

of other cultures.

The process of learning to

comprehend and communicate

in another language

develops insight into the

nature of language, as

well as connections to

other disciplines. The Seal

of Biliteracy builds upon

the rich linguistic and

cultural assets of the district

and community, providing

students with the

necessary skills to be successful

in college, career

and life.

Glencoe Historical


Contributing Columnist

At the recent community


Day program,

Glencoe honored its gold

star heroes from all of our

nation’s conflicts. Today,

as we reflect on the 75th

anniversary of the D-Day

invasion, which laid the

foundation for the Allied

victory in World War II, it

is worth again remembering

the sacrifices made by

many young men from

this community.

World War II was truly

a world war, engaging

people around the globe in

a fight for democracy and

human rights. Glencoe, a

small town of only 6,800

population in 1942, sent

many of its citizens to the

war effort.

Twenty-seven of them

did not return, names that

we read every year in our

roll of honor. These were

hometown boys. Most

of them attended Central

School and New Trier

High School. They were

in the Boy Scouts, prayed

at the local churches or

synagogues and participated

in park district sports.

Many enlisted in either

high school or college. All

served the cause bravely,

giving their lives for their


Most of the Glencoe men

were in the U.S. Army, the

U.S. Army Air Corps (the

precursor to today’s Air

Force) or in the U.S. Navy.

But at least one Glencoe

resident, took a different

route — enlisting in the

Royal Canadian Air Force.

Basil Wilfred Andrews,

entered the conflict a year

before his country did. He

said “the evil of Nazism

menaced” the United

States and his way of life.

Enlisting as a sergeant

pilot, he went to England

and continued to fly even

after a first incident where

he was thrown from his

plane. He was promoted

to flight sergeant and participated

in cross-channel

sweeps in the air offense

against occupied France.

Overall, he engaged in

155 operations against

the Germans and Italians

and on one occasion was

reported to have singlehandedly

taken on a force

of 24 enemy Messerschmitts.

Promoted to

pilot officer, Andrews was

killed in action in October

1942. A memorial service

for him at St. Elisabeth’s

Church in Glencoe was

held simultaneously with a

burial service in Bridgewater,

Somerset, England.

Many other Glencoe soldiers

fought in other operations

the European theatre

during the war. Frank Baer

and his sister Alice lived

with their aunt at 150 Lake

Street here in town. Frank

attended New Trier High

School but did not finish

because he enlisted in the

Army in August 1943 at

the age of 17. He signed on

as a member of the United

States Army Volunteer


By the end of March

1944, he had qualified for

the right to wear the wings

and boots of a paratrooper

after making his fifth jump

— a night jump. By the

end of the year, he was in

the European theatre and

was involved in the Allied

thrust at Bastogne, France.

The battle for Bastogne

was part of the Allied strategy

to close off the “bulge”

create by the German Army

when it attacked massively

through the Ardennes.

Bastogne was at the southern

tip of an Allied pincer

movement designed to surround

the German troops

and cut them off. American

paratroops were dropped

into Bastogne as part of the

strategy. The Americans

made a heroic stand there,

and ultimately prevailed

as the New Year arrived in


Private Baer was killed

in action at Bastogne. His

sister, Corporal Alice I

Baer of the Women’s Army

Corp. was in Glencoe to

visit her aunt when she got

word in February 1945 that

her brother had been killed

in action.

These are just two of

the many Glenconians

who fought and died in

World War II for democracy,

human dignity and

the rights and freedom for

all peoples. As our nation

commemorates the 75th

anniversary of one of our

most important World War

II battles, take a moment

to remember our Glencoe

heroes who gave their

lives as young men for

their beliefs. We should be

proud of them — and the

small community that they

came from.

Loyola students trace family roots in humanitarian outreach

Hilary Anderson

Freelance Reporter

Many young people

spent their school’s recent

spring break somewhere

warm basking in the sunshine

with friends.

Not Loyola Academy’s

Ivana Cooper, 16, and

Marco Signoretto, 14, of

Wilmette, who are cousins.

The two instead traveled

at their own expense to the

Ljubluski Special Needs

Rehabilitation Center in

Bosnia and Hercegovina.

They brought with them a

check for $15,176.40 and

presented it to the Center.

The money was the result

of their grassroots efforts

begun shortly after

the 2018 holidays to raise

money for the facility.

“The Rehabilitation Center

provides educational,

therapeutic and vocational

services to children, teens

and young adults,” Cooper

said. “Most residents have

physical or mental disabilities.

They range in age

from about 1 to around 33.”

What is noteworthy

about Cooper’s and Signoretto’s

efforts is that it was

one of their own choosing,

not a mandated service

project by their school.

There were several reasons

why both young people

decided to raise funds

for the Center.

“Foremost in their minds

were the stories they heard

from their grandparents,

Karlo and Dragica Karacic,

who emigrated to America

from Hercegovina,” said

Mara Cooper, Ivana’s

mother who also is Croatian.

“They have deep family

roots that triggered a

need for giving back.”

“Our grandfather, Karlo

Dragica, escaped from then

Communist Bosnia in the

middle of the night,” Ivana

Cooper said. “He traveled

in a type of “underground

network” to a town in Italy

where he was placed in an

immigrant camp for about

a year. Our grandmother

escaped, too, but she was

younger and it was not as


Ivana Cooper’s older

brother, Dane, also inspired

her to become involved in

the needs of others.

“When my brother was

a college student, he raised

funds for an orphanage

in Cambodia,” she said.

“I was moved even more

when I heard about Cambodia’s

Phymean Noun

who received CNN’s Hero

of the Year Award for her

efforts to save Cambodian

children she discovered in

a trash heap. She founded

a school for them and the

People’s Improvement Organization.

It was then I

decided to ask my cousin,

Marco, to join me and raise

money for a similar organization

and he agreed.”

In addition to the local

churches to which the families

belong — Wilmette’s

St. Joseph and Sauganash’s

Queen of All Saints — the

family is involved in activities

at St. Jerome’s, a Croatian

parish on Chicago’s

South Side.

They also participate in

activities at the Croatian

Cultural Center on

Chicago’s North Side

where Cooper does folklore

dances and plays a Croatian

instrument, the Tambura,

similar to a guitar.

“Through our contacts

we were able to learn about

the Rehabilitation Center

and the needs there,” Cooper

said. “We got in touch

with the Center, asked if we

could do a fundraiser for

them and of course, they

needed financial help.”

The two cousins along

with other family members

began asking friends for


“My mom, Jadranka

Signoretto, and I started

contacting people,” Marco

Signoretto said. “We made

a list of email addresses,

talked with teachers and

friends, put information on

social media and distributed


Cooper took the effort

even more personally.

“I have two jobs and was

saving my money to buy a

new soft top for my car,”

she said. “I decided the Rehabilitation

Center could

put my money to better use

for its residents. It was not

a hard decision. We have so

many resources here where

we live. The residents have

so little.”

The cousins’ fundraiser

proved successful.

“Our friends and their

families were so generous,”

Signoretto said. “This was

my first time doing such a

big project. It was kind of

overwhelming. Those who

helped us raise the money

were so nice and caring.”

5B2F Akira Sushi comes ‘home’ to Wilmette

Alyssa Groh

Contributing Editor

After closing 153 Akira

Sushi in Wilmette and taking

some time off, it brings

tears to Kelly Yang’s eyes

to have a restaurant in Wilmette


5B2F Akira Sushi

opened under a new name

and new location, but has

the same original owner as

153 Akira Sushi.

153 Akira Sushi was

owned by Yang, who

eventually sold it to a new

owner. Shortly after, due

to lease negotiations, 153

Akira had to close down.

After taking approximately

a year and a half

off and spending time with

her young daughters, Yang

found a new location in

Wilmette for another restaurant.

5B2F Akira Sushi, 143

Skokie Blvd., Wilmette, officially

opened on April 30.

Yang said she was waiting

to find a location in

Wilmette because it is

where she calls home.

“We really missed Wilmette

and we really missed

our customers,” said Yang,

who is a Wilmette resident.

While this restaurant is a

bit different than 153 Akira

Sushi, it still offers Japanese


Seeing residents return

to her restaurant with excitement

to learn she was

back made it all worth it for


“This is a community, it

moves my heart to see old

customers come back that

are happy to see us,” she


For Yang, her customers

are more than customers —

they are family and friends.

Back at 153 Akira Sushi,

Yang said she and her

customers would tell each

other about their lives and

be supportive when times

were rough, while also celebrating


“Our customer relationships

are very important

to us,” Yang said. “I want

to rebuild the relationship

with new and old customers

in a different location

with a new concept. This

location is a restart for us.”

One of the biggest

changes between the two

restaurants, is the new location

is much smaller than

the old one. 5B2F Akira

Sushi has small window

and bar seating, and is not a

full service restaurant.

And while there are items

on the menu at 5B2F Akira

Sushi that weren’t on the

menu at 153 Akira Sushi,

guests can expect the same

type of cuisine and quality.

11 a.m.-8 p.m.


Closed Sunday

5B2F Akira Sushi may

be in a much smaller location,

but its menu is far

from small.

The menu contains hot

and cold appetizers, salads,

poke bowls, home-made

ramen, 24 specialty rolls,

14 classic rolls, nine vegetable

rolls and more.

A team of 22nd Century

Media editors stopped

into 5B2F Akira Sushi to

see what all the hype was


We started with a hot and

a cold appetizer. First up

was the asparagus beef roll

($9.50), made with sliced

cucumber, edamame, scallions, onion crunch, tobiko

beef, which was rolled

around asparagus and

broiled in a teriyaki sauce.

We also tried two items

from the cold appetizers,

the hamachi ponzu ($12)

and tuna tartare ($12). The

hamachi ponzue is very

thinly sliced yellowtail

topped with jalapeno and

Akira’s special sauce.

One of our favorite items

was the tuna tartare, which

is also a trademark of 5B2F

Akira Sushi. This appetizer

consists of towers of tuna

accompanied with crispy


Known for its sushi, we

couldn’t wait to dive into a

specialty roll, the menage a

is considered a spicy roll.

New Trier downs OPRF in state’s third-place match

Bill McLean

Freelance Reporter

New Trier’s Connor Ppochetti prepares to send the ball back over the net Saturday,

June 1, in Hoffman Estates. David Kraus/22nd Century Media

It electrified New Trier’s

boys volleyball team

before every match this


Every Trevian but senior

outside hitter Connor Pochetti

would huddle on a

court and create an opening.

Pochetti then would

rush through the gap and

pop straight up, his 37-

inch vertical jump in the

middle of all that humanity

straining teammates’

necks and inciting waves

of whoops.

“That’s one of the things

I’ll always remember

about this group — the

way Connor would fire all

of us up before we competed,”

New Trier coach

Sue Ellen Haak said after

her boys defeated Oak

Park-River Forest 29-31,

25-22, 25-21 in the thirdplace

match at the state

tournament at Hoffman

Estates High School on

Saturday, June 1.

“His jump, along with

the reactions to it, symbolized

our team’s tremendous

attitude and enthusiasm

all season.”

Pochetti launched himself

again at a critical

juncture in the second set

against OPRF.

But instead of rocketing

due north, he dived

abruptly to his right for a

tremendous sideline dig to

extend a point that New

Trier would win on a kill by

junior right-side hitter Peter

Brown (16 kills, six digs,

four blocks, three aces).

A joyous Pochetti

screamed and pumped

his fists as he joined his

huddling teammates for

a boisterous on-court celebration.

The point gave New Trier

(32-8) a 19-17 lead. The

advantage grew to 20-17

on a kill from senior middle

Eli Lieberman before

the Huskies (35-6) struck

for three straight points.

Back-and-forth it went.

New Trier was only five

OPRF points away from

having to settle for fourth

place at state for the second

year in a row.

Seven points later, a

resounding kill by NT junior

OH Colin Heath (11

kills, seven digs) clinched

the middle set (25-22) for

a program that started its

sixth consecutive Elite

Eight appearance with a

three-set defeat of St. Rita

in a state quarterfinal on

May 31.

Lieberman (six kills,

four blocks) elevated for

back-to-back blocks in the

decisive set, with the second

denial upping NT’s

lead to 11-8.

“We were a defenseminded

team this year, and

we took pride in our defense,”

Pochetti said.

But Brown’s offense

certainly came in handy,

particularly in the latter

part of the third set. After

OPRF — which fell to

New Trier in three sets, on

May 4 — won four-of-five

points to cut New Trier’s

lead to 16-15, Brown

smacked a kill. His slowpaced,

well-placed kill to a

deep corner gave his club a

match point, at 24-20.

And Brown’s final kill,

on another match point,

secured the Trevians’ first

third-place showing at


“Those two guys

[Brown and Heath], what

a duo,” Pochetti said.

“Watch out for them next

year. Insane. They’ll be insane

as seniors.”

New Trier senior outside

hitter Alden Schatz — a tricaptain,

with twin Aaron

Schatz, the Trevians’ starting

libero, and Lieberman

— had to sit and wear street

clothes for most of the

2019 season. A severe back

injury limited him to action

in the first two matches.

But ask any of Alden

Schatz’s coaches or teammates,

and you’d hear

nothing but praise for his

relentless leadership and

infectious enthusiasm during

matches. He essentially

served as an assistant

coach, pulling down

the approximate salary of

a Miami-based snowplow


“Positivity is what I

preached all season,” said

Schatz, whose brother

amassed a match-high 15

digs against OPRF. “Our

team was a ‘familyhood’.

Each player knew he was

playing for the guys next

to him, not for himself.”

Trevians senior setter

Zach Salberg capped his

superb weekend with a

35-assist effort against the

Huskies. In New Trier’s

25-14, 25-23 state semifinal

loss to Glenbard West

earlier in the day, he stood

at a baseline, set to serve

with the score knotted at

7 in the second set. New

Trier won the next three

points, Salberg’s ace on

the second point highlighting

the promising stretch.

Glenbard West called

a timeout, regrouped and

won five of the next seven

Girls Soccer Player of the Year

Weaver brings home yearly award

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

Girls soccer Coach of the Year

Burnside, New Trier’s

consistency leads to yearly award

It would have been easy

for Emma Weaver to play

for a developmental academy

during her high school

career. Instead the junior

chose to play for her high

school, New Trier, and has

flourished since the day

she stepped on the field as

a freshman on the varsity


“I knew when I got offered

to go back to Academy

I knew the day I got offered,

that I didn’t want to

accept it because at NTGS

(New Trier girls soccer) it’s

family to me,” she said, “I

felt like if it didn’t do, if I

did accept the Academy

thing I would regret it. That

was my biggest fear.

“And I didn’t want to

live in regret, going to the

games and being ‘Oh I

wish I was out there, I wish

I was playing.’ I didn’t

want to let my teammates

and my coaches down and

I think that says a lot about

the program and the individual

players because

that’s what kind of struck

through me towards high

school because Academy,

yeah competitive, and better

games but it’s the fun

part that what motivates

me and I feel like it motivates

me in the off season

because I work harder because

I have something to

look forward to.”

After a season that saw

the junior score 33 goals,

she was named 22nd Century

Media’s Girls Soccer

Player of the Year.

In a year that saw the

Trevians lose three players

who combined to score

over 40 goals, Weaver was

looked upon to become

more of a scoring threat.

And not only did she, she

embraced it in stride.

New Trier’s Emma Weaver is this year’s girls Soccer

Player of the Year. 22ND CENTURY MEDIA FILE Photo

“Nicole Kaspi was one

of a kind, like Sydney

(Parker), Whitney (Hoban),

all those players were people

that I looked up to so I

needed to fill that role even

as a passer, which is also as

a leader on the team,” she

said. “Everyone is stepping

up, the freshman, the

sophomores, the juniors,

everyone’s filling roles

which has made it easy because

of the loss of players

we’ve had.

“I think we had such

high expectations and being

part of varsity New Trier,

that’s a pressure actually

served as motivation for

me at least. Because I want

to prove people wrong

when they say ‘you’re not

as good this year, you lost

these players.’ It’s like, no,

you recreate a team that’s

amazing every year. That’s

just what (coach Jim) Burnside


Weaver, who had primarily

played the midfield

position previously, was

thrust into the forward role

when the team played St.

Ignatius on April 2.

For Burnside, moving

Weaver up to more of an

attacking role was a move

he didn’t hesitate on.

“Not for a second,” he

said. “It’s not what she’s

going to do, it’s more

about what the people

around her are going to do,

“She takes up so much of

the other team’s focus that

if her teammates work hard

and get in the right spots,

she’s going to get them the


For players who are as

skilled as Weaver, it’d be

easy for them to just let the

game come to them and not

have to really put a lot of

work into their game.

Not Weaver, however.

This offseason, she spent

four months getting herself

to be faster, quicker, have

better speed, so she can be

the best player she can be,

even if she is hard on herself.

“I love to watch film with

him (Burnside),” she said.

“He gives me great advice

and when there’s teams

that are now putting two or

three marks on me, I have

to be prepared for that and

know I can’t always go to a

certain foot, I can’t always

shoot there, because teams

are going to expect that so

I think his teaching strategy

when I watch film is what

helps me on the field.”

consecutive state final four

It’d be fair to make the

New Trier wins first state title in 11 years in style

Neil Milbert, Freelance Reporter

The New Trier girls went

into the lacrosse season with an

awareness that they had some

unfinished business to attend to

after being beaten by Hinsdale

Central in the 2018 IHSA state

championship game.

The teams engaged in a rematch

under the lights at Hinsdale

Central on June 1 and the

Trevians took care of business.

Avenging last year’s loss, the

Trevians decisively defeated the

Red Devils 12-4.

“I was really feeling it,” said

Annie Thompson, who acted

as the catalyst by scoring the

game’s first goal with 84 seconds

elapsed and adding two more in

the first half when the Trevians

got all the goals they needed to

get the job done by gaining a 7-2

lead that would prove to be insurmountable.

“Our ultimate goal was winning

this and we knew we were

going to do it. We beat Loyola

Academy (in the sectional championship

game) and that gave us

a lot of motivation. We had to

finish the job.”

During the regular season perennial

power Loyola was the

only team to defeat New Trier

(22-1-2), scoring an 11-6 victory

on April 15. The ties came

against opponents from Ohio

and Michigan.

In the last game of the regular

season the Trevians downed Hinsdale

Central 15-9, putting more

self confidence in their memory

bank going into the playoffs.

“This was in the back of our

minds the whole season,” said

Charley Meier, who contributed

three goals to the even

more compelling conquest in

“I brought my wife home from the

hospital after surgery—

safety grab bars without a lot of fuss!”

the state title showdown.

Also having a significant input

on offense were Lucy Murray

(two goals and two assists),

Claudia Shevitz (one goal and

three assists) and Emma Merk

(one goal and one assist). Olivia

Zaban and Macy Zaban each

added a goal to the cause.

“We knew we had to control the

ball and control possession,” New

Trier coach Pete Collins said.

The Trevians accomplished

both objectives. They outshot

Hinsdale Central 26-12 and won

12 draws to the Red Devils’ six.

Katie Busch excelled in the

draw department and Kate Burnham

played a steady game in

goal, stopping five shots.

This is the second season that

lacrosse has been an IHSA-sanctioned

sport. The Trevians’ last

state title came in 2008 when the

Illinois Women’s Lacrosse Association

was the governing body.

The icing on Collins’ victory

cake was his selection as IHSA

Coach of the Year.

“It’s because of these kids,” he

said of his honor. “They are a joy

to coach.

“They have a rope they’ve

been holding all season and what

it means to them is if one of them

is falling someone is going to be

there to hold them up.”

Prefacing the long-awaited

rematch with Hinsdale Central

(17-5) in the final was a spinetingling

15-14 victory over

Glenbrook South in the semifinals

the previous night.

GBS battled back from a 13-6

deficit to tie the score with 4:43

to play but Murray came through

in the clutch. When she charged

through a crowd in front of the

net to take a point-blank shot

goalie Annika Newell met her

head-on. Murray went down and

her shot pinged off the goal post

but Newell was sent off to serve

a cross-checking penalty.

With an open net beckoning,

Murray scored the game-winning

goal on a free position shot.

“We were focused too much

on this game,” said Meier, on the

narrow semifinal win after the

title game.

Trevs took third

in 2019 after

beating OPRF for

third place.

This time around the

New Trier boys lacrosse

team wasn’t about to settle

for second.

Not even two cautionary

lightning delays totaling

more than two-and-a-half

hours daunted the 2018

runners-up in the IHSA

state championship game at

Hinsdale Central on June 1.

The Trevians shook

down the thunder by wiping

out Warren 16-4.

“We’re the best team

in the state and we played

like it,” said senior attacker

Henry Scherb, who led

the onslaught by scoring

five goals and assisting on


“We had a tough game

against Neuqua Valley (two

days before in the semifinals).

Having that game

was a wake up. We came

out ready to dominate —

we came out patient and we

came out poised.”

Last year the Trevians

lost to Loyola Academy in

the state title game but this

year they ousted the Ramblers

in the sectional final

after losing to them in the

regular season.

According to senior

midfielder Gavin Randle,

the Trevians went into the

game with the mindset that

underdog Warren was “a

Loyola, a top team.”

“It was my last game and

Henry Freedman takes a shot on goal during the IHSA

boys lacrosse state title game Saturday, June 1, in

Hinsdale. Carlos Alvarez/22nd Century Media

I gave it everything I had,”

Randle said.

Although Warren (18-2)

took the field with an impressive

win-loss record it

was misleading because the

Blue Devils hadn’t faced

the high quality competition

that New Trier (20-5)

had encountered and the

game quickly became a


The Trevians stormed to

a 10-0 first half lead and increased

it to 15-1 in the second

half before coach Tom

Herrala sent in his bench

brigade and Warren scored

three straight late-game

goals, two of which came

from the Blue Devils’ biggest

guns, Nate Crawford

and Kellen Martin.

“We took it to them in

every facet,” Herrala said.

“They played a zone and

we were prepared for it.

After we got the lead they

went into a man-to-man

and they couldn’t match up

with us.”

Joining Scherb in the

goal-fest were Henry

Freedman with four, Randle

with three and Brian

Sitzer, Johnny Hackett, Ollie

Montgomery and Trent

Kadin with one apiece.

New Trier outshot the

Blue Devils 40-13, won 15

of 23 faceoffs, controlled

13 of 21 draws and latched

onto 29 ground balls to the

losers’ 13.

Splitting the goaltending

were Cooper Yaccino

(three saves) and Brian

Dolby (one save).

To get to the title game

the Trevians had to get past

upset-minded Neuqua Valley

in the semis and that

entailed holding off a late

rally to prevail 8-6.

Weaver’s two goals help

lead New Trier to third place

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

Every team’s goal is

to end the season with a

win. In most states, that

would mean you’re the

state champion. In Illinois,

however, if you lose in the

state semifinals, you get

the luxury of playing in a

third-place game, allowing

one more chance to end

the season with a win.

For a team like New

Trier, which had been to

the last five state championship

games, this doesn’t

seem to be ideal, but it was

the situation the Trevians

were facing after dropping

a heartbreaker to Barrington

the night before.

It would have been easy

for the Trevians to mope

and come out discouraged,

but they did the opposite,

easing to a 2-0 win over

Lyons in the third-place

match Saturday, June 1, at

North Central College.

“We came back to the

hotel and our coach basically

said ‘you can be upset

about it tonight, but tomorrow

morning, you’re going

to wake up and you’re going

to play your last game

together,’” New Trier’s

Heidi Bianucci said.

The Trevians have been

led offensively by Emma

Weaver all season and

the standout junior shone

brightly on the biggest

stage yet again. Weaver

scored her first goal when

she collected a deflected

pass, turned and put in an

upper-90 shot, giving the

Trevians the lead with 16

minutes, 25 seconds left

before halftime.

Weaver added a second

goal right before the half.
