D203 Board of Education

New Trier signs off on Winnetka’s

stormwater plan at Duke Childs Field

George Castle

Freelance Reporter

Construction on a Village

of Winnetka-operated

stormwater reservoir under

New Trier’s athletic fields

could begin as soon as the

summer of 2020.

The best-case scenario

timetable was advanced

Monday night, June 10,

when the New Trier District

203 school board

unanimously approved an

intergovernmental agreement

with Winnetka for the


The Village will still

have to reach similar agreements

with the Winnetka

Park District, School District

36 and the Forest

Preserve District of Cook

County, along with obtaining

a permit from the Army

Corps of Engineers, to begin

the project.

The $2.5 million project,

funded by the Village,

could also mean the first

steps toward a proposed

$6 million refurbishing of

the athletic-field complex.

Recommended by a New

Trier official Monday to be

done concurrently with the

reservoir construction were

a parking lot on the north

edge of the fields and a netting

along Winnetka Road

to protect people and cars

from foul balls from the

baseball diamond.

As Winnetka officials

outlined the reservoir plans

at the May board meeting,

a construction date of the

summer of 2021 was frequently

mentioned. However,

after District 203 gave

its final approval Monday,

Winnetka Village President

Chris Rintz suggested 2020

as a possibility if agreement

with the Forest Preserve

could be reached by

this fall.

The board approval culminated

24 months of talks

and preparation between

Winnetka and District 203.

Conversations between the

Village and the three other

governmental bodies involved

are ongoing.

“We’re hoping to finish

our negotiations with D36

and the park district this

summer, and be back to

Cook County in the fall,”

Rintz said. “Once we get

the approvals in earnest,

then we can spend money

to do the hard design. If

things move well and we

were able to finalize our

agreement with the county

in September, we will begin

engineering immediately.

“Potentially, we can start

on forest preserve property

in 2020. Then we would

work outward from there

onto the (Districts 203 and

36 and Park District) properties.”

The reservoir, providing

flood relief to scores of

homes in west Winnetka,

will be installed underneath

the athletic fields near the

corner of Winnetka and

Hibbard roads.

Under the best-case scenario,

Winnetka would wait

until after the spring sports

season in 2021 to start the

excavation. After the reservoir

was installed, the

Village would restore the

athletic field to its original

condition. Rintz projected

a two-year construction


As part of the intergovernmental

agreement, District

203 would keep the

property above the reservoir

as open space while

also having the ability to

install new utilities. Winnetka

would come back to

District 203 if expansion of

the stormwater storage area

was needed.

The agreement gives

District 203 complete flexibility

in future years to

approve any upgrades to

the athletic fields. That includes

not doing anything

if so desired.

Assistant superintendent

Chris Johnson, however,

recommended the

construction of a parking

lot – a joint project with

the Village – and the netting

to be done at the same

time as the reservoir work.

Cars of sports spectators

had parked on an adjoining

golf course while golfers

made their rounds, while

plummeting baseballs had

proved hazards along Winnetka


Although favorably

viewed by board members,

Johnson’s recommendations

are not yet on

the docket for near-future

discussion at District 203


The overall $6 million

athletic upgrade is still conceptual.

If all or part of the

plans are approved in upcoming

years, they likely

would involve funding

from outside sponsors.

At the least, D203 will

benefit from the reservoir

with the reduction of flooding

of its fields. Board

members were pleased to

help with flood relief of

surrounding areas.

“We’re glad to be the

first piece,” board president

Cathleen Albrecht said.

10th annual field day unites North Shore, Chicago students

Alexa Burnell

Freelance Reporter

At the end of each

school year, many students

around town enjoy field

day, an event where math

and science take a backseat

to outdoor games and


While the ritual is a

given for local students,

the same is not always

true for kids living outside

North Shore Country Day

High School gave students

from the LEARN Excel

Charter School in East

Garfield Park the same opportunity

annual LEARN Field Day

at Fox Meadow Fields in


The LEARN Charter

School Network functions

by creating a network of

high-performing K-8, tuition

free, public charter

schools with an overarching

goal for all LEARN

students to go to college.

The relationship with

LEARN Excel on the

North Shore began when a

group of altruistic Winnetka

parents joined forces to

see that the Charter School

Network came to fruition.

Their fundraising, commitment

and personal involvement

lead to the development

of 11 LEARN

campuses in Chicagoland

and a specific devotion to

the LEARN Excel campus.

“The Winnetka Family

Partnership raised

significant funds to see

the schools get off the

ground,” said Susan Snyder,

a WFP founder. “But

the commitment didn’t end

there. Families wanted to

give their time by volunteering.

We began bringing

charter students to the

North Shore to enjoy theater,

arts, sports, yoga, the

Kohl’s Museum and more.

Parents and students also

started visiting the charter

schools, sharing their

skills, talents and time.”

Once WFP parents realized

the Excel students

weren’t fortunate to have

their own field day, they

sprung into action, inviting

them to their very own,

North Shore-inspired field

day. Overtime, the event

turned into a student-led

collaboration between

NSCDS and New Trier,

bringing together more

than 70 youth volunteers

each year.

This year, graduated seniors

Clark O’Bryan, of

NSCDS, and Noah Osher,

of New Trier, co-chaired

the day, enjoying the

chance to take on a leadership

role, after committing

to Excel during their fouryears

in high school.

For O’Bryan, his commitment

stems from

knowing he can positively

impact the lives of other


“What I’ve learned from

being a volunteer and now

in a leadership role is that

small moments can have

a big impact on a child’s

life. I’ll never forget how

it felt when I developed a

strong connection with a

kid who I was playing soccer

with during one of the

field days. That connection

impacted me as much as it

impacted him,” O’Bryan

said. “I hope that the new

wave of volunteers have

the same experience. I

want our volunteers to see

that there can be a disconnect

between city and suburban

living. In the end,

we are all just people, regardless

of our socioeconomic


Osher had a similar experience

during a field day

while bonding over a game

of freeze dance. Knowing

another child looked up

to him made Osher very

aware of the significance

of the annual field day.

“This is a great opportunity

for kids to get outside

and enjoy the fields and the

safety that we have access

to all the time. Field day is

all about having fun, playing

games and building relationships.

I hope that our

volunteers discover how

important this day is for

the LEARN students and

make similar connections

with the kids, just like I

have,” Osher said.

From June 14

Glencoe man, 77, allegedly steals $460K from fraternity

Money used

for personal

investments, online

trading, yacht club

Megan Bernard, Editor

A 77-year-old Glencoe

man recently pleaded not

guilty to stealing more

than $400,000 from a fraternity

at Northwestern


Peter Schellenbach,

the former president of

the Sigma Chi Home Association

at the Evanston

campus, was arraigned

in Cook County Circuit

Court for one Class 1

felony charge of theft between


which is punishable by up

to four to 15 years in prison,

according to a June 13

statement from Attorney

General Kwame Raoul.

His next hearing is

scheduled for July 15.

Schellenbach, a 1958

New Trier graduate, was

the former president of

the Sigma Chi Home Association

from 2006-2012.

The nonprofit association

is operated by alumni and

collects dues for management

of the campus house,

according to Raoul.

During Schellenbach’s

presidency, he allegedly

transferred nearly

$460,000 to his personal

account, then used

$267,000 to fund an Iraqi

dinar investment account

with Sterling Currency

Group. Dinar is the currency

of Iraq.

“In 2018, the co-owners

and chief operating officer

of Sterling were convicted

on charges of fraud in the

U.S. District Court for the

Northern District of Georgia,”

Raoul’s statement

reads. “All of the home association’s

money Schellenbach

had invested was lost.”

The rest of the alleged

stolen money was reportedly

used for Schellenbach’s

personal expenses,

including on online trading

websites and for payments

to credit cards and the Chicago

Yacht Club.

When Sigma Chi board

members asked Schellenbach

about the missing

funds from the association,

he characterized the withdrawals

— some as large

as $70,000 — as loans he

would repay, “despite not

having the financial means

to do so,” the statement


“This individual used

his position to steal money

that should have been

used to maintain housing

on which students relied,”

Raoul said in the statement.

“My office will

work to ensure he is held

accountable for his elaborate

scheme to steal hundreds

of thousands of dollars

from students, alumni

and board members who

placed their trust in him.”

Schellenbach is listed

on the fraternity’s website

as “notable alumni” from

the Class of 1964 who received

an Order of Constantine.

“The Order of Constantine

is awarded to alumni

members who have devoted

long and distinguished

service to the fraternity,”

the chapter’s website says.

“Induction into the Order

of Constantine is considered

to be the highest

honor that the Sigma Chi

Fraternity bestows upon

one of its members.”

There is also an award

named after him called the

Peter Schellenbach Outstanding

Officer Award.

“This award recognizes

an outgoing elected officer

who has excelled

in the fulfillment of his

responsibilities, going

above and beyond their official

duties,” the website

says. “Named in honor of

Home Association President

Peter Schellenbach

to recognize his devotion

to Omega throughout

the years, demonstrating

the outstanding effort the

award represents.”

According to The Daily

Northwestern newspaper,

the campus’ Sigma Chi

chapter was temporarily

suspended in February of

this year for allegedly violating

Sigma Chi’s policies.

The suspension was

lifted in April and all chapter

activities resumed.

Graduates appreciate support

of Sacred Heart community

Alexa Burnell

Freelance Reporter


Despite being a class

small on size, the Sacred

Heart eighth-grade graduating

class was big on emotion

as the 23 graduating

students accepted their diplomas

on June 2 reminiscing

about the years spent

at the close-knit Catholic


After a mass lead by Rev.

Steven Lanza, class president

Alexa Balsam and

vice president Margaret

Sullivan gave their moving

farewell addresses.

Sullivan is the third and

final daughter to graduate

from Sacred Heart, marking

the end of a 14-year

run. For her, the support

and love from the entire Sacred

Heart community will

never be forgotten.

“They say it takes a village

to raise a child, well

Sacred Heart has been that

‘village’ for all of us graduating

here today. We would

not have grown to be the

people we are now, without

the help of our teachers,

friends, and families

that make-up the Sacred

Heart community. Whether

it be in the classroom, on

the court, or on stage, Sacred

Heart has allowed us

to make strong friendships

that I know we will carry

into high school and beyond,”

Sullivan said.

Balsam, also the third

and final member of her

family to graduate from

Sacred Heart, marked the

end of her family’s 15-year

run at the school. Balsam

spoke directly about the

friendships made over the

years and how those relationships

will leave a lasting

impact on her life as she

moves towards her high

school years.

Sacred Heart School eighth-graders celebrate after

graduation Sunday, June 2. Alexa Burnell/22nd Century


“I can tell you confidently,

that this class contains

the best friends I could

have asked for to grow,

learn, and be with all these

years at Sacred Heart. I’m

trying to comprehend the

big changes that are going

to occur in all our lives next

year, but I will always focus

on the past we’ve had

together. There has not

been one day where I have

doubted my classmates’ acceptance

for one another.”

Balsam said.

After Sullivan and

Balsam completed their

speeches, Principal Kristen

Fink addressed the congregation,

thanking all the

families for their support

over the years. Out of the

23 graduating students, 13

families marked their final

run at the school and were

asked to come up to the altar

for a special photograph

and recognition.

“To all of the 13 families

who mark their final chapter

with Sacred Heart today

– it has been a fantastic run.

Thank you for your years

of support and commitment

to this school,” Fink said.

Jeannie Balsam, Alexa’s

mother, stood proudly with

her family, reflecting on

what the Sacred Heart community

has presented to her

over the past 15 years.

“I’ve most appreciated

the love, support, faith, fun

and the commitment of this

entire community,” Jeannie

Balsam said.

Eighth-grade student,

Jai MacDonald gave the

final remarks, stating, “On

behalf of all of my classmates,

we thank you for

celebrating this special day

with us.”

At the end of the ceremony,

the entire class excitedly

headed outdoors, giving

each other high-fives and

hugs, ready to see what the

future holds.

class included: Lauren

Contributing Columnist

A rare photo showing Sherman Booth III (far left),

Cottage in 1913. Photo Submitted

Glencoe is the

home of the third

largest collection

of Frank Lloyd Wright

designed structures in

the world — a ranking in

which Glencoe residents

can take much pride. That

ranking has been threatened,

however, by the

recent sale of one of those

treasured structures. The

new owners have started

their application to the

Village for a demolition


The home in question is

known as The Booth Cottage

and is located at 239

Franklin. As people debate

the fate of this structure,

it is important to understand

the history behind

it and debunk some of the


Sherman Booth was an

attorney who moved his

wife, Elizabeth, and two

young sons to Glencoe

in 1910 initially renting

a home on Bluff just

north of Park Avenue. In

November of that year, the

Booths purchased the 15-

acre estate today known as

Ravine Bluffs. They subsequently

retained Frank

Lloyd Wright to design a

home after seeing some of

his work in Oak Park.

At the same time,

Booth, a founding commissioner

of the Glencoe

Park District, also

engaged Wright and

noted conservationist Jens

Jensen to create a plan

for downtown Glencoe.

Although the plan never

came to fruition, Booth’s

relationship with Wright

continued to grow and

Booth began doing legal

work for Wright.

Wright’s initial design

for a home for the

Booths featured a twostory

central living room

with single story wings

emanating in different

directions. At the time,

the project was one of the

largest and most elaborate

homes Wright had designed.

Booth’s budget for

the project was purportedly

$30,000 to $35,000.

Records from Wright’s

office indicate that the

budget was $50,000-

60,000 or approximately

$1.2-1.4 million today. It

is believed that actual construction

bids were even

higher — which might

explain why the house

(known as Booth Scheme

#1) was never built.

In addition to the

house, Wright designed a

garage and stable for the

estate. These structures

were actually built in

1912. Garage is perhaps

a misnomer. The building

included two bedrooms, a

living room and a buffet

kitchen for the gardener,

as well as a workshop and

space for two automobiles,

which were, at that

time, still quite novel. The

Stable included space for

two horses, a carriage and

a cow.

Takeaway from our cover story

Megan Bernard

For 10 years, students

from Chicago

have been bussed

to the North Shore for an

annual Field Day.

This year proved to

be no different as 425

kindergarten through

sixth-graders from a charter

school near Lawndale

were welcomed for a

day of outdoor fun with

nearly 70 local student


Hosted by New Trier

High School and North

Shore Country Day

School, the volunteers

got to connect with these

students and play all day.

This event has been a

highlight for students at

this charter school for 10

years, said Sonia Jones,

director of development

of the LEARN Charter

School Network.

Our reporter Alexa

Burnell was there for

the story last week and

captured the 10th event

very well, stating this

day has impacted both

the Chicago students and

our own here in the North


“I hope that the new

wave of volunteers have

the same experience (as

me). I want our volunteers

to see that there can

be a disconnect between

city and suburban living.

In the end, we are all just

people, regardless of our

socioeconomic status,”

said Clark O’Bryan, of


O’Bryan led the event

with New Trier’s Noah


It’s great these local

students step out of the

so-called “bubble” and

understand the importance

of this yearly partnership.

While it was a day centered

around all fun and

games, it was also a great

learning experience. I’d

love to see this partnership

grow even further in

coming years.

special Glencoe spot? The Glencoe Beach

looked pretty different 100 years ago during

does the Booth Cottage

fit into this story?

Wright designed the small

one bedroom, one bath

bungalow for the growing

Booth family pending

completion of the Scheme

#1 Estate home. Glencoe

issued a building permit

for the cottage on Feb. 10,

1913. It was originally located

north of what is now

Sylvan Road and west of


Many myths surround

its construction. The

home has been mistakenly

referred to as the “Gardener’s

Cottage” most likely

because it was built by the

Booth’s gardener.

It has also been mistakenly

called the “Honeymoon

Cottage” due to

the misconception that it

was a wedding present

from Sherman to his wife,

Elizabeth. Since the two

were married in 1907 and

had two young boys by

the time the bungalow was

built, the name clearly

does not apply.

An event or series of

events in late 1913 and

1914 changed the Booth’s

plans and they petitioned

the Village of Glencoe to

subdivide their 15-acre

estate into 20 lots (later

25 lots) which they called

Ravine Bluffs. As a result,

the family ended up living

in the cottage for three

years awaiting construction

of a new, smaller

home in the new subdivision.

With 883 square feet

of enclosed space, the

cottage ranks as one of the

most economical designs

of Frank Lloyd Wright’s

career and held a special

place in the memories

of Booth’s young sons.

Sherman Booth III

remembered sleeping on

the porch as a young boy

“winter as well as summer,

snow or no snow.”

He wrote, “my father was

a fresh air fiend. I’m sure

we had the first electric

blankets but with no automatic

adjustment. Consequently,

when we went

to sleep without turning

the electric switch off, the

blanket would get heated

to flash point. [W]e woke

up dripping with sweat

and once or twice had to

throw a bucket of water

on incipient flames. After

that, we lived with some

charred blankets.”

Following completion

of the Booth’s permanent

home (located today at

265 Sylvan Lane), the

family sold the cottage

and it was moved to its

present location at 239

Franklin St. Although

subsequent owners have

renovated and expanded

the structure, it remains

an integral part of Frank

Lloyd Wright’s legacy

in Glencoe. Sadly, if it

is demolished, Glencoe

will lose its third place

ranking among Wright

structure locations. More

significantly, however, our

community — and indeed,

the world at large — will

lose a structure that represents

an early design of

one of America’s greatest

When he returns to LFC,

where he teaches a number

of general chemistry courses

and a non-majors course

on renewable energy, “I

will use what I’ve learned

in my course.”

For Daphne, joining an

interfaith women’s group

in Rabat is “right up my

alley,” she said. Between

that, catching up on her

reading, learning Arabic,

brushing up on her French

and hosting a lot of family

and friends who are planning

to visit, she expects

the year to be a busy one.

But the year abroad is far

more than simply a cultural

“to do” list, she said. More

significantly, it is a reflection

of “Cody values” and

“the way we as a couple

have tried to live.” Among

those values are “intercultural

understanding as a

core desire,” “intercultural

bridge-building as a calling,”

and “modeling ‘get

away’ sabbaticals for the

people we lead.”

“This year is allowing us

to live our values that we

have been going for and

trying to live out,” she said.

She noted as well that the

Cody family’s excellent adventure

will not end when

they return to Glencoe in a

year, which plays into the

fourth Cody value: “remain

small, agile and flexible.”

“We talked about it together,

we looked at our

values, our kids are grown,

and we just thought we

want to downsize, we

want to change, and when

we come back see what’s

next,” she added.

To that end, in July they

will be moving out of the

St. Elizabeth’s rectory that

they have been living in for

the as 14 years and putting

their belongings in storage.

It will be a move with a

degree of remorse.

“This is a parish that is

always learning about new

things and new people, and

I am a learner by nature so

I will miss that,” Daphne

said. “I hope my next congregation

will have that

same spirit but it’s going to

be hard to find and I will always

be grateful for it.”

Parishioners, friends and

neighbors who wish to bid

the Codys farewell may do

Radler, 50, was ‘an important part of so many organizations’

Alan P. Henry

Freelance Reporter

By many



White Radler

had the

smarts and

take charge


skills of a


corporate CEO. She chose,

however, to harness those

strengths on behalf of a

greater purpose: family,

faith and community.

“She was there for everybody,”

said friend and

neighbor Paula Zimmerman

of Radler, who died

May 29 at age 50.

Zimmerman was one of

more than 1,000 people

hailing from every part

of Radler’s life who paid

their last respects to the

longtime Winnetka resident

during visitation at

Donnellan Family Funeral

Services in Skokie.

Radler grew up attending

St. John Fisher School

and Mother McAuley

Liberal Arts High School

before working toward a

bachelors degree in English

at Northwestern University,

where she was

a member of Alpha Phi

sorority. Sorority sister

Dewi Rainey remembered

Radler as a “well liked and

respected” woman graced

with a “beautiful and ready


While at Northwestern,

Radler spent several summers

as head of lifeguards

at Ridge Country Club in

Beverly and left a lasting

impression on club swimming

pool manager Jim

Tracy, who had not seen

her in 30 years.

“She was an amazing

person, so positive,” Tracy

said. “She took care of the

kids, she helped coach the

swim team. Everything

about her was just upbeat.

She was in charge, but in a

sweet kind way.”

After college, Radler

worked briefly in sales

for a pharmaceutical company.

In 1996, she married

James Radler, whom she

met at NU. Shortly thereafter,

they moved to Winnetka

and began raising a


“She was a driving

force in her family and

she raised three incredible

children,” said Lolly Roberts,

her husband’s stepsister.

“She ran her household

and got everything

straight in line.”

Radler’s father Eugene

recognized her ability to

focus on the task at hand

early on.

“She had her act together

as a teenager, she had

her act together in college,

and she had her act together

a mother. When things

had to be done they were

done,” he said. “The kids

came first. She took care

of Jim, too.”

As the children began

growing up, she became

more any more engaged in

the schools and the community.

“She was a huge proponent

for her children

and she was a wonderful

women,” Sears elementary

school teacher Judy

Conaghan said.

When her daughter

Claire enrolled at Regina,

Radler stepped up her

volunteer activities, serving

as lead chairwoman of

the student raffle for three

years, raising thousands of

dollars for the school. She

also served on the Black

and White Dinner Auction

Committee and played an

active role in the Parent

Mentor Group, Booster

Club and the Mothers’

Club. In addition, she

worked at the book store

for the four years Claire

was there and then an additional

four years after that.

“Completely volunteer

service for eight years: it

was remarkable what she

did,” said Regina administrator

Pat McDonell.

In 2015, Radler received

the Saint Martin De Porres

Award for her outstanding

service to Regina Dominican

High School.

“Katherine truly understands

how important it

is for parents to become

actively involved in the

school community,” said

Sister Mary Margaret Pachucki,

president of Regina

Dominican at the time.

“She brings an enthusiastic,

creative, joyful and reliable

spirit to everything

she does for our school


Upon accepting the

award, Radler said: “I believe

in a female-centered

school where girls can be

themselves and learn their

strengths in today’s world.

Regina is a place where

this happens.”

Outside of school, she

volunteered with The

Alumnae of Northwestern

University Alumnae

Club. She also loved to

read, a passion she passed

down to her children, and

formed a book club. Most

recently, she shared her

love of books as a volunteer

at the Northfield-Winnetka


Her nonstop energy was

apparent in her neighborhood,

as well. She organized

a hot chocolate table

for the children and the

crossing guards, put together

the annual Easter

egg hunt, and got the invitations

out and collected

the money for the annual

block party.

“She was a natural-born

organizer and has been an

important part of so many

organizations,” Zimmerman

said. “And she was

the person who always

stopped her car to have a

word with you, who always

had time for everybody.”

Radler is survived

by her husband, James,

daughter Claire, son Peter,

and daughter Charlotte.

She is also survived by

Wilmette’s Pescadero ‘firing

on all cylinders’ since opening

Erin Yarnall

Contributing 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


“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


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

Sea scallops are also

Fitzgibbons also

brought out Pescadero’s

and garlic, all soaking

in Flying Dog oyster stout

New Trier’s Weaver wins Gatorade Player of the Year award

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

New Trier junior Emma

Weaver has had quite the


After leading her team

a sixth consecutive trip

to the state’s final four, as

well as a third-place finish

at state, Weaver was

named 22nd Century Media’s

Player of the Year

and was also named an

Allstate All-American.

She added another prestigious

award June 13

when Gatorade named her

the 2018-19 Gatorade Illinois

Girls Soccer Player

of the Year.

“I was so shocked,”

Weaver said. “I was in

my kitchen with my mom,

getting ready for school

and she looked at her

phone because we knew

it came out Thursday and

she was just ‘oh my gosh,


“I was just in shock. I

hugged her and it was an

amazing feeling that all

my work had paid off.

It just shows you that

dreams do come true.”

Even with all of her success,

Weaver isn’t one that

is in search of winning

multiple awards. This season,

however, the Winnetka

resident set some high

goals for herself.

“Just thinking about

it, I’m so honored. I

wouldn’t be here if God

hadn’t given me the talent

and gifts I have to be the

player I am today,” Weaver

said. “Going into my

junior year, I had set two

goals for myself — and if

you don’t know me, I’m

really hard on myself, especially

when it comes to

soccer — that were pretty

difficult goals.

“I’m really happy to say

I was able to achieve both

of them thanks to the help

of my teammates, parents

and coaches. Those two

goals were to be an All-

American and to get Gatorade

Player of the Year

as a junior. Because of

the hard work I put in in

the offseason, I wanted to

prove to myself that I was

one of the best players in

the state and to strive to be

one of the best in the state.

That meant, for me, to not

compare myself to other

extremely successful soccer

players I play against

or around me, but also focusing

on what I need to

do to improve in games

and practices.”

Weaver becomes the

third Trevian to win the

award, following Kelly

Maday, who won in 2016,

and Kayanne Gummersall’s

win in 2006.

Weaver’s also only the

second non-senior to win

the award, joining Barrington’s

Jenna Szczesny,

who won as a junior in

2014 and then followed it

up her senior year with a

repeat win in 2015.

“I know going up

against the seniors was

always going to be tough

but I’d just say thank you

to the people who choose

the award,” Weaver said.

“Thank you for giving

younger players recognition

and if you achieve

big things, you don’t get

placed in the background

of high school soccer.”

After scoring 34 goals

this season, the Villanova

commit will look to not

only repeat next season,

but also help her team to

another state finals appearance.

style too, altering the way

she ran practices, placing a

bigger emphasis on hitting

and swinging at the right

pitches at 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.

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

to return to try and take

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.”

NT grad Gagliardi ends career on a high note

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

University of Michigan

alumna Grace Gagliardi

has come a long way since

she first started rowing her

freshman year at New Trier.

In fact, when she first

started, she wasn’t sure if it

was something she’d be interested

in or want to continue


“I was going to try out

for cross country when I

was a freshman in high

school and then my friend

was doing rowing and she

convinced me to just do the

tryout with her,” she said.

“I really kind of fell in love

with pushing myself at that

kind of level and being on

a team like that. So I just

kind of kept doing it and

then I got an offer to come

to Michigan and it’s been a

lot of fun.”

All that fun paid off for

Gagliardi and her Wolverine

teammates this year,

as they won their sixth Big

Ten title this year and first

since 2012, and also took

third at the NCAA Championships,

the second thirdplace

finish in three years.

Its 119 points was also

a program-record at the

NCAA Championships.

It wasn’t just the team

that had success at both

postseason events, however.

Gagliardi’s boat, the

Second Varsity Eight boat,

took third at NCAAs and

won the Big Ten title. Gagliardi

had been a member

of the 2V8 boat the past

two years and helped the

boat take second at the conference

meet last year and

fourth at the national meet.

“Last year I was in the

2V final and we got fourth

by less than a second,” she

said. “I’ve kind of thought

about it since then and to

finally get on the medal

stand and really help the

team get on the medal stand

was really special. We have

no regrets. It was a lot of


The Winnetka resident

also saw success during

her first two years in Ann

Arbor, as a part of the Second

Varsity Four boat. Her

sophomore season, the boat

took second at the Big Ten

Championships, while her

boat won the title at the

conference meet her freshman


Despite rowing mostly

as part of an eight-person

boat at New Trier, moving

from a four-person boat to

an eight-person boat wasn’t

really as difficult as it may

seem, she mentioned.

“It’s just something you

really get used to,” she said.

In her senior year at

New Trier, Gagliardi was

looking for places to continue

her rowing career at

the next level. While she

admits she may not have

had the best scores, the

Michigan coaches said she

could come and be a part

of their program if she

wanted to but she’d have

to work her way up.

“I’m really grateful to

them for letting me do

that,” she said. “I didn’t

quite know what to expect

and they obviously train

on a really high level, so

there’s a big adjustment

period. I think I caught the

hang of it after a while.

I’m really grateful for the

opportunities that it’s given

are also great at

Michigan and I’ve met a

lot of amazing people. The

professors included in that

as well as my best friends.

I’ll always be a Michigan


Despite the high level of

competition the Trevians

face every year and all the

training they go through,

going from the North

Shore to Big Ten rowing

wasn’t something that was

really easy to be done.

“It’s a volume game.

Like a training volume

game,” Gagliardi said.

“We really didn’t do a lot

of volume in high school,

it’s mostly just trying to get

out on the water and working

on technical changes.

“In college, it’s a whole

lot of volume and you

work on the rowing machine

quite a lot. So it’s

really just getting used to

that level of training. In

high school there’s maybe

16 good rowers on the

team but once you get to

Michigan there could be

30 people that are better

than you. So you really

check your ego at the


Gagliardi graduated

from Michigan last month

with a degree in English

and has returned to Winnetka

for the summer. After

taking the summer off

to regroup from the past

four years and look for a

job, she hopes to end up

working in the sports industry.

“Working for the Cubs

would be a dream.”

While the end of her senior

year also marks the

end of her rowing career,

there are some things that

she’ll always carry with her

as she moves into the professional


“I think I learned quite

a lot. Most important was

how to be a teammate,” she

said. “How to communicate

with people and manage

my time.

“But I think I’m really

just going to remember how

special the people were, the

coaches and that it was all

worth it. You commit your

whole self into something

and I think that in itself is

a lesson but then to kind

of actually achieve those

goals was a huge privilege

and I’ll remember that forever.”

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


“Of course we had the

senior leader, but I think

it was important that to be

Her leadership skills

and play on the field is

star shortstop during her

first three seasons.

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 on this

summer during club ball.

“I definitely still continue

working on hitting, but

I like to focus a little more

on my fielding as well,”

she said. “For my summer

team I’m not only an

infielder but I do play outfield

too. So I think I need

to focus a lot on getting

practice in at every position

I play.”

Michi will return next

year to lead a loaded

Introspection leads to

Titans’ turnaround

Michal Dwojak, Contributing

Sports Editor

Dana Boehmer didn’t

like what happened last


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 inconsistency 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 to see change.
