North Shore School D112 Board of Education

Board approves amended fiscal budget after bond sale

Erin Yarnall, Editor

With less than a month

left in its fiscal year, the

North Shore School District

112 amended its approved

fiscal year budget

for the 2018-2019 year at

its June 11 regular meeting.

The amendment had

been on public display for

30 days, starting May 9.

The budget was being

amended, according to

Chris Wildman, the district’s

Chief Financial Officer,

because the board had

“been very busy.”

The board approved the

sale of alternate revenue

bonds, which resulted in

$55 million for the district

to spend on a construction

police reports

project at Northwood Junior

High School and updates

at Edgewood Middle

School.

The changes reflected

in the amendment were

related to the sale of $55

million in bonds, and the

use of that money to be

spent on the updates at

Northwood and Edgewood.

The board unanimously

approved the amended

budget.

The board also heard

from representatives

from Northwood Junior

High School and Edgewood

Middle School,

who presented their respective

in the program

first implemented in the

schools.

Project Citizen was

created by the Center for

Civic Education to help

students learn about public

policy.

HP girl returns home with new heart

Eli Fraerman, Editorial Intern

Highland Park residents

Priscilla, Tyler and Opal

Lang had called the Ann &

Robert H. Lurie Children’s

Hospital in Chicago home

since December of 2018.

On Friday, June 7, they

finally came home.

On Dec. 11, 2018, Opal

Lang, 2, went into cardiac

arrest in her home, was

transported to a nearby

hospital and eventually airlifted

to Lurie’s Children’s

Hospital in Chicago.

After a series of surgeries,

Opal was stabilized on

a “Berlin heart,” a ventricular

assist device. However,

she needed a new heart.

She received that heart in

April, and three days later,

her mother, Priscilla Lang,

gave birth to a baby boy.

After a whirlwind of

emotions and uncertainty,

the family was finally able

to come home this month.

They were greeted with a

welcome-home celebration

from various neighbors,

led by Karen Abrams,

one of the main organizers

of the event who helped

decorate their home.

“We were gone since

December 11, that’s when

we officially left,” Priscilla

Lang said. “When we

came back, some of the

girls from the complex we

live in had come down and

visited me a couple times

in the hospital. It was really

nice to know that they

were waiting and excited

for us to come home. They

all have kids similar to

Opal’s age, some a little

bit older some a little bit

younger but when you live

around other moms that

have kids the same age it

feels like a little community

and it was really nice

to know that everyone was

praying for us and waiting

for us to come back.”

The Lang’s have been

adjusting well back to normal

life since they came

home, and Priscilla says

that the support from her

neighbors has helped them

ease back into home life.

“When you take a step

away from people you see

every day and then you

come back, you just feel

welcomed,” Lang said.

“It was so nice to really

feel like we were going

home. It didn’t feel like we

were just coming back to a

house we lived in and had

our stuff in but we were

coming back home, and

the difference in that was

the people here that were

waiting for us and made it

warm and welcoming.”

Lang mentioned that it

Neighbors decorated the home of Opal Lang’s family

when she returned home, June 7, from Lurie’s Children

Hospital in Chicago. Erin yarnall/22nd century media

was exciting to just have

to go to the grocery store

again to shop and cook for

themselves as the Ronald

McDonald House had provided

a majority of meals

when they were away.

While they have finally

been able to settle home

now, that is not to overlook

the uncertainty that was in

their lives for the last several

months as Opal awaited

a new heart.

“Some days you feel like

it’s going to happen that

day and then some days

you feel like it’s going to

be a year,” Lang said. “So

when they came in I really

was in shock honestly. I

thought they were joking

and it’s such a terrible

thing to joke about, they

would never joke about

that so I don’t know why I

thought that it wasn’t real.

I was kind of like ‘are you

serious?’ And they said

‘absolutely, it’s hers.’

Immediately after receiving

that message, Opal

began to be prepped for

surgery. While Priscilla

Lang was able to watch her

daughter for a couple days

following the surgery, she

had something else to tend

with. A newborn baby was

about to be on the way.

“The joke was that Opal

was going to get her heart

the same day I go into labor,

and although it didn’t

happen on the same day,

it happened three days

apart,” Lang said. “It

worked out really amazing

because once they get

a heart transplant they

start pulling the sedation

and the medication that

keeps them drowsy very

quickly, so in the frame of

2 to 3 days she was up and

moving around. … After I

had the baby, the doctors

at Evanston hospital and

all the nurses were super

on board with getting me

out of there in 24 hours.

At 8:37 the next night, exactly

24 hours afterward,

they were there with my

discharge papers ready to

boot me out of the hospital

basically.”

While Opal still has

a long road to recovery,

Priscilla says she has been

doing great since the family

returned home and is

continuing to improve every

day.

combat climate change

Eric Bradach

Freelance Reporter

Climate change has

become a leading topic

on the national political

stage with 2020 presidential

hopefuls proposing

policies and measures to

prevent its damages. But

worldwide, local governments

more ambitious plans

with the Global Covenant

of Mayors for Climate and

Highland Park became

the coalition’s latest participant

after Mayor Nancy

Rotering and City Council

unanimously greenlit a resolution

to adopt its pledge

at its June 10 meeting.

As a member of the

global accord, the city will

implement policies to reduce

and track greenhouse

gas emissions. The Global

Chicago Mike’s Ice Cream celebrates

one-year anniversary with events

Eli Fraerman, Editorial Intern

As Chicago Mike’s Ice

Cream gets set to celebrate

their one year anniversary,

they would never have expected

the response they

got from the community,

according to Fran Salemi,

one of the owners.

The ice cream shop

opened on June, 22, 2018,

in the Highwood Firehouse

and has taken off

since. A local family-run

business, Salemi is grateful

for the response that

they have gotten.

“I never would’ve expected

the response that

we got,” Salemi said.

“The community itself

just opened up its arms

to us and they really support

small business. We

have the coffee shop next

door, another small business

and I think that’s

what makes us so excited

about being in a town

like Highwood because

that’s what’s there are no

chains.”

As Salemi referenced,

all of their ice cream is

homemade and fresh, unlike

some chains.

“It’s unique in the sense

that you won’t go to a

chain store and find our

“That’s the great thing is

that you can come to our

shop and find something

unique every time. We

don’t put any dyes or food

coloring in our ice cream,

so it’s really what you see

is what you get.”

Salemi hopes that in the

future they can continue

to draw in more local

interest as they work to

expand their flavors and

eventually establish catering

Highland Park Native

With such a fast start,

many opportunities have

opened up.

“We definitely want to

get out into the community

as far as doing more

events, Salemi said. “We

want to be able to be more

of a ‘come to us for your

dessert catering needs.’

We’re investing in some

more equipment to be

able to go out into more

festivals and things like

that. We can maybe do

some more market day

type events in the near

future. We’re looking into

doing that and hopefully

opening up a couple more

locations in the next two

years.”

Their prime location in

Highwood has drawn a lot

of interest from residents

in the area and has been a

great addition to the local

businesses of Highwood.

“We wanted a location

that was independent, we

didn’t want to be part of

a strip mall,” Salemi said.

“We were literally driving

one day and I happened

to see a sign in the window

and we called. They

wanted a friendly family

business to go in there so

when I told them we were

going to do an ice cream

shop, Mike, the current

owner of the firehouse,

was really excited.”

In regard to their one

year anniversary, Chicago

Mike’s Ice Cream has a

series of events lined up

for the summer, ranging

from an ice cream eating

contest to local bands to

weekly game nights.

The events kick off on

begin June 22nd with the

ice cream eating contest.

Game nights began June

4 and are every Tuesday

during the summer.

My favorite part of the year

Erin Yarnall

Editor

The party at Ravinia

Festival went “all

night long,” on

June 11, when Lionel

Richie performed to

a packed crowd at the

Highland Park festival.

The show was phenomenal,

and I felt lucky to

be there and experience

it, especially with my

Dad, who has always

been a big Commodores

fan.

If I’m going to be

completely honest, my

first introduction to Lionel

Richie was when his

daughter, Nicole, blasts

“Brick House” by the

Commodores while driving

a hearse in an episode

of one of my favorite TV

shows of all time, “The

Simple Life.”

“This is my dad’s

song,” she says to her

best friend at the time,

Paris Hilton.

I didn’t know about one

of my favorite television

personality’s famous

family, so I started to do

some digging.

More than a decade

later, I’m fully aware of

the long-standing career

Richie has had, that’s

been filled to the brim

with hit after hit.

Opportunities to see an

artist of Richie’s caliber

at Ravinia make my summers

all the better, and I

love being able to share

the experiences with all

of you in our Life and

Arts section.

Look out for our coverage

of the concert, and

more concerts throughout

the summer in upcoming

issues over the next few

months, as well as online

at HPLandmark.com.

On June 14 the City of Highland Park posted,

“Happy Flag Day Highland Park! Remember

proper flag disposal etiquette; the City offers

bins for worn flags to be dropped off at the

Hazel Parking lot across from City Hall, inside

City Hall, and at the Highland Park Police

Contest welcomed

more than 1,300 entries

from 36 states. Winners in

the competition, judged by

esteemed journalists from

across the company, will

be honored at an Oct. 5

banquet in Milwaukee.

“I am blown away,” said

Joe Coughlin, the company’s

publisher. “Our editorial

readers.”

Of the 16 awards won

by 22nd Century Media,

seven were second-place

honors.

The Homer Horizon

earned both first-place

awards — one for a feature

written by Editor Tom

Czaja and the other for an

investigative piece produced

by a team of reporters.

Four of the honors went

to The Orland Park Prairie,

which was recognized

for two editorials by Managing

Editor Bill Jones,

a sports column by Jeff

Vorva and an obituary tribute

by reporter Meredith

Dobes.

Three each went to The

Northbrook Tower and the

Malibu Surfside News,

22CM’s only California

newspaper.

The Tower’s editor, Martin

Carlino, authored two

award-winning articles: a

sports feature and an education

story. Sports Editor

Michal Dwojak earned

recognition for a sports

news story.

The Surfside News was

honored for its collective

work covering the devastating

Woolsey Fire, a

feature by Editor Lauren

Coughlin and a sports story

by reporter Chris Megginson.

Other awards were won

by: The Tinley Junction (a

review and a sports feature

each by Sports Editor Jeff

(sports story by Editor

Max Lapthorne), The

Frankfort Station (sports

From Page 6

“This is something we’ve

been working on for two or

three years,” Councilwoman

Kim Stone said. “We

have had to put together

an inventory of our greenhouse

gas emissions for the

city and come up with some

goals for reductions.”

The global alliance comprises

of leadership from

more than 9,000 cities and

local governments from

132 countries in six continents.

Cities that pledge to

participate in the coalition

will implement policies to

produce such measures: reduce

and limit greenhouse

gas emissions, prepare for

future climate change impacts

of climate change, increase

access to sustainable

energy, and track progress

toward these objectives, the

resolution states.

Highland Park has already

been implementing

efforts to confront

climate change that are

in the pledge. These efforts

include: a completed

greenhouse gas inventory

using historical data to set

a benchmark, a climate

hazards analysis report to

identify the possible future

impacts on the city

from climate change, and

is working toward a 5%

greenhouse gas reduction

by 2023, according to the

resolution.

In Memoriam

Ulf Backstrom

Ulf Backstrom was a

fun loving and adventure

seeking guy. He passed

away peacefully after a

long and arduous battle.

He was an extraordinarily

talented and internationally

acclaimed film maker.

His achievements included

Oscar nominations and 42

Golden Globes as well as

other international awards.

In addition to his professional

accomplishments,

family was his pride and

joy. His mission in life was

to imbue his children and

grandchildren with a love

of art and nature. These

lessons were ceremoniously

conducted with a

mischievous flair.

Ulf was passionate in his

activism. His work with

the Civil Rights Movement,

championing the

injustices faced by American

Indians and culminating

in his exposure of the

struggles depicted in the

artwork made in the Holocaust

camps.

Ulf is survived by his

loving wife Ia and his

adult children; son Orn

and daughters Annica (Bill

Heymann) and Helena

(Scott Weiser). His grandchildren

include: Sara and

Ben Heymann, David, Rachel,

Danielle and Ashley

Weiser. His sister Agneta

Backstrom, Gothenburg,

Sweden as well as many

nieces and nephews in the

Nordic Countries. Ulf was

blessed to have many lifelong

friends around the

world that enriched him. He

lived a good and long life

and will be deeply missed

by all who knew him.

Keshet offers dance class ‘for everyone’ at West Ridge Center

Erin Yarnall, Editor

Dancers and movers of

all abilities are welcome

in the newest dance class

at Highland Park’s West

Ridge Center — Body

Groove.

The weekly class,

which began June 12, is

run by Keshet — an organization

that services people

with disabilities that

is based in Northbrook.

Keshet serves more than

1,000 people in the area.

Jen Phillips, the chief

program officer at Keshet

said the organization is

“always looking for opportunities”

for its young

adults to participate in,

especially ones that can

get them moving.

“We’re looking for opportunities

[for them] to

class.

have an activity to do, and

a program that is a little

bit more inclusive,” Phillips

said.

The project was funded

by a grant from YEA!

Highland Park, which

now exists as part of the

Highland Park Community

Foundation.

The dance class is just

part of what the grant

covered — as it serves

the purpose of bringing

more arts opportunities to

Highland Park for adults

with intellectual and developmental

disabilities,

according to Jamie Lake,

the director of development

at Keshet.

“We applied for this

grant and we were given

money to start programming

within the community

in Highland Park for

our residents,” Phillips

said.

According to Lake, other

programs have included

weekly craft nights,

adaptive yoga, music exploration

and art classes

led by an art therapist.

“This series of programs

was intentionally

planned to foster selfconfidence,

increased

communication and new

ways of self-expression,”

Lake said.

She added that Keshet

chose the Body Groove

class for the participants

to take part in because it

allowed for creativity in

the movements, making it

accessible for all participants.

“Dance steps are taught,

and participants are encouraged

to follow them

in whatever way is comfortable

for them,” Lake

Wilmette’s Pescadero ‘firing on all cylinders’ since opening

Erin Yarnall

Editor

Finding a table at Pescadero

shortly after the

restaurant opens at 5 p.m.

on weekdays may seem

like a daunting task.

But for owners Mike

Chookaszian and Nick

Hynes, and chef Matthew

Fitzgibbons, that’s not a

problem.

“We’ve been firing on

all cylinders since day

one,” Fitzgibbons said.

Pescadero Seafood &

Oyster Bar is Chookaszian

and Hynes’ second venture

in Wilmette after opening

Napolita Pizzeria & Wine

Bar more than three years

ago.

“We always had the idea

to open an oyster bar and a

fresh seafood restaurant,”

Chookaszian said. “There

were places we loved in

the city, and there was really

nothing in [Wilmette].

We felt like there was a

real need for it in the North

Shore.”

They initially took inspiration

from restaurants

on the East Coast and in

New Orleans, but said after

they hired Fitzgibbons

as chef, he “put his own

flair on things.”

“We’re not really pigeonholed

in terms of an

actual style,” Hynes said.

Pescadero opened April

18 and Fitzgibbons said

the restaurant is busy every

single night.

“We open at 3 p.m. for

happy hour and we serve

food at 5 p.m.,” Fitzgibbons

said. “We’re usually

full by 4 p.m. and we’re

usually a one-hour wait

every single day.”

Last week, a group of

22nd Century Media editors

stopped by the new

Wilmette spot to sample

some of the menu items

that chef Fitzgibbons and

his team created for us.

First off were the brussels

chips, one of the restaurant’s

most popular

items. Fitzgibbons used to

order his brussels sprouts

from Mexico, where they

were $30 a case, but after

recent tariffs, they now

cost $90 a case to ship

from other states in the

United States.

“I think a lot of people

stopped using brussels

sprouts about four or five

weeks ago because the

price went from $30 to $90

a case,” Fitzgibbons said.

But he still finds it worth

it to make the restaurant’s

popular appetizer. Pescadero’s

brussels chips

are served with flashfried

leaves, served with

green onions and toasted

almonds, all topped with

a garlic honey balsamic

drizzle.

We also sampled the

restaurant’s seafood skewers

($18) — skewers filled

with jump Gulf shrimp

and sea scallops, alongside

a charred asparagus salad

and topped with a chili

lime honey drizzle.

Sea scallops are also

served off-skewer, in

the restaurant’s jumbo

sea scallop ($32) entree,

served with a sweet corn

risotto and topped with a

sun-dried tomato butter.

Fitzgibbons also

brought out Pescadero’s

mussel frites ($19), consisting

of a bowl of one

The mussel frites ($18) at Wilmette’s Pescadero are one pound of Prince Edward Island mussels in a Flying Dog

oyster stout broth with shallots, garlic and Parmesan fries.

& Oyster Bar’s name,

Fitzgibbons brought us

out some baked oysters

— oysters in their shell,

topped with spinach, artichoke

and peppered

smoked bacon with a Parmesan

stuffing.

In addition to its baked

oysters, Pescadero is

known for its raw oyster

bar. We sampled some of

the restaurant’s oysters

($1.50 each during happy

hour), served with hot

sauce and lemon. While

the restaurant doesn’t begin

serving food off of its

menu until 5 p.m., oysters

are available every day at

3 p.m., when the restaurant

opens, as part of its happyhour

offerings.

said. “Unlike most dance

classes (or fitness classes),

there is no right or wrong

way to Body Groove,

which makes it accessible

to everyone.”

Dance therapist Erika

Hornthal believes that creativity

and self-expression

is one of the most important

aspects of dance.

“Movement is really our

first language,” Hornthal

said. “For some people, it

remains our primary language,

especially for individuals

that either have

a hard time communicating,

or can’t rely on verbal

communication.”

Hornthal emphasized

that dance is for “everybody,”

and is at its best

when it allows students to

be creative.

Phillips agreed that the

creative boost the students

get from the class is a

boost for them, but it also

offers additional benefits

beyond that.

“It gives them an opportunity

to move around, feel

better about themselves,

and boost confidence and

also, at the same time,

they’re exercising,” Phillips

said.

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Charlie Tiemeyer

Tiemeyer is a sophomore singles player

on the Highland Park boys tennis team.

How did you get started playing

tennis?

My mom introduced it to me. I really

liked it so I kept on playing.

What’s your favorite part of

playing tennis?

Getting into rallies, just grinding out

points, clean winners and stuff like that.

What’s the most challenging part

of playing tennis?

The mental game, hands down. It’s very

hard to keep your temper when you play

tennis.

Do you have any pregame rituals

or superstitions?

Usually I just stretch beforehand, I usually

wait for my match like five minutes

early. I usually eat something beforehand,

something energetic that will get me

ready before my match.

If you could play another sport,

what would it be?

I think I would do cross-country, lots of

people do it. It would be the sport I’d do if

I never did tennis.

What’s your favorite place to eat?

Edzo’s Burger Shop in Evanston, they

have top-tier burgers.

22nd Century Media File Photo

Who is your favorite athlete?

Roger Federer. He’s one of the best tennis

players in the world. He’s influenced

my tennis, he’s amazing on-court.

If you could travel anywhere in the

world, where would you go?

Japan, because they have lots of cool

stuff, technology and culture.

What’s something on your bucket

list you’d like to cross off soon?

Finishing several books by the end of

The Loyola coach

watched a shy freshman

become a junior who

cracks jokes in the dugout,

keeping everyone loose.

Her switch from third

base to shortstop midway

through her sophomore

season was an example of

how adaptable Michi can

be and what Farrell-Fink

believes shaped her into

the player she is today.

“She’s just worked so

hard to become such a

phenomenal hitter,” Farrell-Fink

said. “But what’s

really nice to see is her

finding her voice and becoming

such a great leader.

The Marisa that we played

with this year was so different

from freshman year,

being able to keep things

light in the dugout.”

Even though Michi has

had success, she still sees

that there are some things

she could improve .

Softball Coach of the Year

Introspection

leads to Titans’

turnaround

Michal Dwojak

Contributing Sports Editor

Dana Boehmer didn’t

like what happened last

season.

The Glenbrook South

softball coach and her team

finished last season with

a 5-22 record, good for

second-worst in the Central

Suburban League South

division. South didn’t have

any consistent pitching

or hitting, which happens

when a coach is forced to

play four freshmen in the

lineup.

Boehmer challenged herself

and her players. No one

wanted to go through a season

like that again, so something

needed to change.

Something did.

The Titans responded by

finishing this past season

with a 17-9 record and a

CSL South championship.

“They just really came

out determined,” Boehmer

said of her players. “No one

was happy with last season

and they came back with

a new attitude that they

weren’t going to let that

happen again. It was awesome.”

South’s turnaround season

and total transformation

from a team that battled

consistency to becoming

one of the most consistent

teams in the area is why

22nd Century Media named

Boehmer the company’s

2019 Softball Coach of the

Year.

The introspection started

at the end of the previous

season, when the Titans realized

they needed to put in

more work if they wanted

was named 22nd Century Media 2019 Softball Coach of

the Year. 22nd Century Media File Photo

to see change. Boehmer

changed her style too, altering

the way she ran

practices, placing a bigger

emphasis on hitting

and swinging at the right

pitches in the right counts.

According to the coach, she

and the players had open

conversations early into the

spring practices where they

wanted to figure out what to

do so they didn’t have to go

through another season like

that again.

Boehmer started to see

the change in the first few

games of the season. The

Titans hit for better contact

and their pitching staff kept

South in games it lost the

previous year. GBS won its

first four games and won

eight of the first 10 games,

showing the head coach

that the hard work might

pay off.

“There was a lot of pressure,”

Boehmer said. “We

had the ability to win a lot

more games. Winning those

first two games, the kids

were getting lighter. They

just gained confidence.”

South went on to win its

division title before falling

to rival Glenbrook North in

its IHSA regional matchup.

The Titans will lose two seniors,

one from their starting

lineup next season as

much of the underclassmen

are expected to return to try

and take the next step in the

program’s development.

They went through the

lows of a losing season and

now know what it takes to

be successful softball players.

What’s next?

“I’m really excited,”

Boehmer said. “The possibilities

are endless.”

the Year. 22nd Century Media file Photo

Marisa Michi has been a fixture for

Loyola Academy the past three years.

Playing on the varsity team as a freshman

can be scary for anybody, especially

when facing players two or three years

older who have played at the high school

level.

But with only one senior on this year’s

team, she knew there was an opportunity

to take her next step both on the field and

as a leader.

“Of course we had the senior leader, but

I think it was important that to be strongly

bonded as a team, we needed multiple

(leaders) on the field at a time,” Michi

siad. “So I think it was important to step

up and be that person for the team.”

Her leadership skills and play on the

field is why 22nd Century Media named

Michi its Girls Softball Player of the Year.

Michi finished the year with a .494 batting

average, .545 on-base percentage,

.843 slugging percentage, 1.387 on-baseplus-slugging

percentage while also tacking

on a team-leading seven home runs,

52 RBI and 10 doubles.

Loyola coach Michelle Farrell-Fink has

seen a lot of improvement from her star

shortstop during her first three seasons.

Highland Park teams get better with summer camps

Nick Frazier, Sports Editor

The last day of school at

Highland Park was June 7,

but many wouldn’t know it

from walking around Wolters

Field on June 11.

That’s because the athletic

complex was filled with

different Giants teams running

their summer sports

camps in the afternoon.

Fourteen different HPHS

programs are either in the

midst of or just beginning

their offseason training,

keeping the young athletes

as busy as ever, either at

Wolters or in the gymnasiums

at the high school.

With the fall season still

a couple of months away,

conditioning isn’t necessarily

the focal points of

these camps.

“Just improvement,

that’s probably the biggest

thing,” said Paul Harris,

Giants boys basketball

coach. “We want guys with

great work ethics who understand

that the summer

is just a really good time

to improve as a player. As

a coach, you just want to

see guys not be afraid to

make mistakes, enhance

strengths and really try to

improve on their weaknesses.”

Highland Park softball

coach Lydia Gonzalez

echoed that idea, saying

she ask the girls what they

want to work on and go

from there.

“One of the things we

really stressed last year

is how athletic we were,”

Gonzalez said. “That’s

been a real good thing

where the kids themselves

said ‘I usually play this position,

but I’m looking to

play anything, what do you

think? My response is let’s

try a variety of things and

see what maybe clicks better

for you. Everyday we’re

just going to break a couple

skills down for us.”

While the returning Giants

are focusing on the

little things during summer

camp, the field hockey session

featured more than 30

incoming freshmen that are

new to high school sports.

Coach Joe Achino said he

likes the summer training

because both newcomers

and veterans grow from it.

“For most of them, this is

their first time with any interaction

with a high school

sport, kind of the idea of

what that looks like and

how it’s run,” Achino said.

“It also gives us a chance

to start letting some of our

returning players in the

program come out and start

getting into the swing of

things and start their summer

training for the upcoming

fall season.”

Another positive from

summer camps, which typically

run just two weeks

in June, is building team

chemistry. That component

is important for Harris, as

the basketball team graduated

six seniors.

“For any coach in the

summer it’s about getting

a group to gel and come

together,” Harris said. “We

have a handful of guys who

are back from last year’s

varsity time, but a lot of

new faces too. Watching

the guys grow together,

kind of see where they fit

in, hopefully find guys

who can fill different roles.

Those will be things that

we look for in the summer.”

It’s important for the athletes

to get better, but make

no mistake, these summer

workouts aren’t as intense

as practices in the season

are. Some teams just finished

their seasons a few

weeks ago, so there’s no

need for rigourous workouts

in the heat.

For instance, Gonzalez

was watching Sportscenter’s

Top 10 plays the other

night and saw a baseball

player field the ball and flip

it to second with his glove.

Gonzalez had her girls

practice that in one of the

sessions just to try and find

different ways to improve

their game.

“It’s different for them

and it’s different for me, I

think it gives us a little bit

better opportunity to get

to know each other with a

much more relaxed situation,”

Gonzalez said. “I’m

not saying that in season

there’s more pressure, but

there’s more school stuff,

and that adds a little bit of

pressure. This is nice, this

is really nice.”

Lydia Gonzalez teaches an incoming Giants freshmen how to field a ground ball at

the softball summer camp.

Drew Favakeh, Sports Intern

For the first time in 13

years, Highland Park has

replaced its head coach.

Taking over for Cathy

Nachman is first-time

head coach Jessica Berens.

Currently an art

teacher at Highland Park,

Berens served as the girls

golf assistant coach for

three seasons.

Nachman, who collected

two of the only state

qualifiers in program

history, won’t be easily

replaceable. Yet Berens

is confident her time as

captain of the golf team

at Augustana College,

along with her teaching

and coaching experience,

will make for a smooth

transition.

“Working in a classroom,

just like coaching,

is having relationships

with the kids,” Berens

said. “I feel that I’m

very receptive and able

to communicate with

them and listen to them.

I also think they value

my opinion and I value

their opinion. I think that

really translates well to

coaching.”

In college, Berens captained

the Vikings her senior

year and was named

a National Golf Coaches

Association All-Scholar

honoree twice. The Schaumburg

native also made

the academic All-Conference

team for all four of

her varsity seasons.

Berens is excited about

forming relationships

with the players, most of

whom she is already familiar

with either through

school or coaching.

“What I’m most excited

about is to coach them

out on the course and

talk through approaches,

and seeing them follow

through with that,” Berens

said.

While she hopes to

simply continue Highland

Park’s success, Berens

also yearns to make

this team her own. She

already had a meeting

with the girls in which

they discussed potential

changes. Among them

is a new team motto: “If

we’re not having fun,

what are we doing?”

“That will be one of

my mottos,” Berens said.

“The one thing they’re

excited about is the motto:

practice with a purpose.

To come and have

meaningful practices

which will then hopefully

translate into good golf.

And I want the girls to

have fun, although we’re

in a very competitive

sport.”

This past season the

Giants earned a share

of the Central Suburban

League North Championship

title and placed fifth

at the Stevenson regional.
