Lake Bluff Village Board

Village surprised by $61-million

overhaul of Lake Bluff interchange

Stephanie Kim

Freelance Reporter

Round it up:

A brief recap of Village Board Action Monday, July 8

• Scott Griffith of Christopher B. Burke Engineering

gave a presentation on the Village’s stormwater

study, which analyzes about 300 identified existing

stormwater systems that have been grouped in

six different study areas. The study is expected to

be completed by September. Village Engineer Jeff

Hansen said the Village can expect two stormwater

projects to start within the next two weeks, starting

with tree removal.

• President Kathleen O’Hara commended the

department of public works and the police

department for their efforts during the Fourth of July


For years, commuters

traveling through the interchange

at Illinois Route

176 and U.S. Route 41 in

Lake Bluff have faced considerable

daily traffic congestion

and safety hazards.

But a long-planned upgrade

to the interchange is

now closer to completion,

now that $61 million has

been secured for the project.

The funding comes from

the recently signed Rebuild

Illinois capital construction

plan, which includes nearly

$45 billion for state repairs

to roads, bridges and transit

over the span of six years.

State Senator Julie Morrison,

D-Deerfield, made

the announcement over the

Fourth of July weekend,

which came as a surprise

to the Lake Bluff Village

Board, according to President

Kathleen O’Hara.

“We heard this week,

much to our surprise to be

totally honest, that $61 million

is going to be allocated

for the 41-176 exchange,”

O’Hara said at the Village

Board meeting on Monday,

July 8.

“We hope to be at the

table,” she added, “but

we’re not sure if we’re sitting

with the adults ... or the

kiddies table.”

O’Hara noted the

$61-million overhaul of the

Lake Bluff interchange is

a state project and consists

of three phases. Phase I

was completed in 2015 and

focused on an engineering

and environmental study

that steered the design of

the project.

State funding will go toward

Phase II, which will

include land acquisition and

construction development

of acceleration and deceleration

lanes, drainage improvements

and reconstruction

of the interchange, and

then actual construction to

follow in Phase III, according

to Village Administrator

Drew Irvin.

Based on initial conversations

with the Illinois Department

of Transportation,

Irvin said Phase II could be

completed in three years.

“From the Village’s perspective,

the next step that

will involve this board

would be ... to enter into a

letter of intent with the Department

of Transportation

about what we expect for

improvements along that

corridor,” Irvin said.

Those improvements

could include additional

lighting, paths, landscaping

and other ancillary improvements

associated with

the project.

“It’s a massive project,”

Village Engineer Jeff Hansen

said. “And there will be

a center median down 176,

so if you are going eastbound

and you want to access

some of the businesses

on the north side, you’d

make a U-turn, then a cut

and then turn around and

make a right turn.”

In a press release published

July 5, Morrison said

“...it was clear this project

would greatly enhance travel

safety in the area” after

working with local officials.

Additionally, Governor

JB Pritzker said the plan

will impact every region of

the state.

“With Democrats and

Republicans coming together,

we passed the largest

and most robust capital

plan in state history that

will rebuild roads, bridges,

transit, and vertical infrastructure

across the state,”

Pritzker says in the release.

“Here in Lake and Cook

Counties, I’m so proud that

we’re bringing critical investments

to roads like U.S.

41 and higher education

institutions like College

of Lake County. This is a

plan that will impact every

region of the state, create

tens of thousands of jobs,

and grow our economy and

I’m grateful to leaders like

Senator Morrison for helping

to make it a reality.”

Lake Forest resident launches new home-care business

Alyssa Groh, Editor

Fritz Hirsch, of Lake

Forest, loved being a

homeower, but hated all

the maintenance care that

came with being a homeowner.

One day, he realized

there had to be an

easier way to get preventative

care for your home,

and that is when he came

up with a business model

he now calls My Home


“We are Baby Boomers

and we loved were we

lived, and we were just

getting tired of the hassle

of dealing with the landscapers,

the HVAC guy,

the pest control — it was

becoming a hassle,” Fritz

told The Leader. “At that

time, I was CEO of a company

and I belonged to a

CEO group, and one of the

other CEOs in the group

had us visit a company in

downtown Chicago called

SMS, which is a singlesource

maintenance company

for nation-wide retailers

such as Walgreens

and Walmart.”

When he heard about

this company in January of

2017, he came up with the

idea of launching a company

that could be a singlesource

maintenance company

for homeowners that

would act as the middle

man between homeowners

and service providers.

And as of this past May,

Fritz is now the founder and

CEO of My Home Expert.

My Home Expert takes

care of preventative maintenance

while also helping

with other household


The staff at My Home

Expert does complete home

maintenance services and

repair services. They work

with homeowners and service

providers schedules to

select, schedule and track

service providers.

“The key is we take the

hassle out of homeownership,”

Fritz said. “The

difference between us and

home advisor is really they

just give the homeowner

options. The homeowner

still has to deal with general

contractors. My Home

Expert really takes that

hassle away.”

Fritz added that with

preventative maintenance,

home values can rise by

approximately 1 percent

every year.

“There are certain things

every homeowner should

be doing,” he said. “We

have a plan for any homeowner.

If you have a one

off repair, like if your door

needs replacing, we do

that too. Just call us and

we will contact the service

provider, schedule it and

call you back to make sure

it was done right. We will

invoice you.”

My Home Expert prides

itself on not just its relationship

with its customers,

but the service providers


“One of the things that

is real important is, customers

are extremely important

to us, however, for

our service providers, we

treat our service providers

jut like customers because

they are just as important

to My Home Expert as the

customer are,” Fritz said.

“If we have good service

providers, we will have

satisfied customers.”

cal life skill no matter what someone decides

to do professionally in their life or

personally in their life,” she said. “I want

to see us expand our footprint across the

country because Chicagoland is not the

only geography facing this issue.”

This is something Utynek and the rest of

the team want to see as well.

“I would like to see continued growth,”

Utynek said. “We know that there’s 10 million

children that could use our services.”

Utynek said that he doesn’t know how

they will reach all of those children yet but

is encouraged by the growth of Bernie’s

Book Bank over the last ten years.

“It means that now we can grow,” he said.

In the meantime, dedicated volunteers

will continue to feel inspired by the mission

and spread the message.

“It’s hard work at times but really when

you think about the mission, it’s awesome,”

Volunteer Jose Lozada said. “It’s very impressive

and heartwarming that people are

coming to volunteer. Everyone needs books

and it’s great to keep kids involved in books

and interested.”

Friends, family celebrate the life of ‘Sweet Jack’

Alan Henry

Freelance Reporter

T h e

Church of

the Holy

Spirit filled

beyond capacity



July 11 as Adams

hundreds of

former classmates at Lake

Forest High School joined

family and friends to celebrate

the life of John Ireland

“Jack” Adams.

Known by many as

“Sweet Jack,” Adams died

June 29 at age 20 while

wake surfing at Clear

Lake, Indiana. The Steuben

County coroner has

ruled the death accidental.

In the days following

Adams’ death, family

members have received

hundreds of messages

of condolences. The response,

his cousin Courtney

Adams told attendees,

“has allowed us to witness

how many lives Jack

touched in his short time

and to recognize that Jack

lives on and will continue

to live in the memories he

leaves us.”

“Jack Adams possessed

a love for life that was infectious,’’

she said. Words

she used to describe him, to

name a few: “loyal, loving,

creative, athletic, competitive,

humorous, passionate,

protective, free spirited,

humble, confident, and reliable.

“Those who were fortunate

enough to have known

Jack know that he had a

free spirit and a zest for

life that was born out of his

infectious sense of humor

and boundless energy. Jack

lived his life confidently

and without fear of judgment.”

Across the years, from

all walks of life in Lake

Forest, lacrosse teams, and

the College of Charleston,

where he pledged the Pi

Kappa Alpha fraternity,

many friends felt Adams’


“He had profound impacts

on all our lives,”

said Jack Barbour, a friend

since middle school. “He

was always there for us

when we were down. He

made our lives better.”

“He was a real sweet

kid,” said close friend Seamus

Tuohy. “He had a big

heart, he cared. There are

“He will be with us eternally. If you are looking

for him, just head towards the bright side of the

road. Another way to get a hold of him, when you

need him, or need to support a troubled friend,

simply hold four fingers in the air. He will be


Richard Adams — Jack Adams’ father

not many people like him

around. We are all going to

miss him a lot.”

“My first day of school

he was in my LRC class

and I am kind of like a shy

girl, not very outgoing, and

Jack really made me just

open up and he was always

there for me,” said Emma

Patlovich. “He was just a

great kid, always so positive,

never complaining.”

“He was fiercely loyal,

and a very loving friend,”

said Nick Humphrey.

Adams’ devotion to his

family was also strong. “To

Jack, family came first, no

matter what,” said Courtney.

“He was, and will

continue to be a cherished

and idolized son, brother,

grandson nephew, and

cousin and he has left an

immense void in our hearts

and lives.’’

Many of the attendees

played lacrosse with Adams,

who was a was a fouryear

varsity player for the

Scouts, and in 2017 was

named team captain, IHS-

LA All-State, IHSLA All-

Conference first team, and

was voted the team’s Most

Valuable Defenseman.

“He wasn’t the biggest

guy on the field, but he

certainly was always one

of the strongest and the

fastest,” said Courtney.

“He was never one to brag.

Jack was a quiet leader. He

displayed humility on and

off the field. He did not

need to be the star of the

show, rather his goal was

to support his teammates

and act in accordance with

what was best for the team.

Number 4 will be missed


Lacrosse teammate

Adam Johnson called Adams

“the most fun loving,

passionate kid I ever met.

He cared a lot about everyone

he ever met and he

really touched a lot of people.

It is not common that

you find someone who has

such a vibrant personality

and someone who is such

good friends with everyone

else around.”

Adams’ father Richard

told attendees that the two

of them had recently listened

to the Van Morrison

song “Bright Side of the

Road,” an upbeat homage

to living life in the present

and to the fullest, just as

Jack had done. After Adams’

body was recovered,

Richard said the family

gathered to listen to some

“Jack music,” including

that song. “At this very

moment I promise myself

I will always head toward

the bright side of the road.

And this is my message to

you: you may want to add

it to your playlist.”

At the end of his remarks,

Richard asked attendees to

“please remember the last

couple of lines on Jack’s

prayer card: ‘I do not stand

at my grave and cry. I am

not there. I do not die.’”

“He will be with us eternally,”

continued Richard,

who was wearing Jack’s

Scouts lacrosse jersey.

“If you are looking for

him, just head towards the

bright side of the road. Another

way to get a hold of

him, when you need him,

or need to support a troubled

friend, simply hold

four fingers in the air. He

will be there.”

Decisions on configuration

preferences for Wilmette

stormwater project made

The stormwater project

took another step forward.

The Wilmette Park

Board reached a consensus

on what configuration to

move forward with at each

park to be able to provide

direction to the Village

at its July 8 meeting. The

board reached a unanimous

consensus to move

forward with alternate

configuration 2 at Thornwood

Park and alternate

configuration 1 at Hibbard

Park, while reaching a majority

consensus to move

forward with the original

configuration at Community


Alternate configuration

2 at Thornwood Park is

$7.06 million. This was

the most cost-effective option

for Thornwood Park,

as alternate configuration

1 was $8.81 million and

the original configuration

was $8.61 million. Alternate

configuration 2 has

just a 1.4 acre footprint,

compared to the other configurations

being a 3 acre

footprint. Alternate configuration

2 also removes just

three trees, compared to 53

trees in the original configuration

and 60 trees in alternate

configuration 1. Alternate

configuration 2 is a

gravity and pumped outlet

and its tank is 11-foot-4

inches tall. Additionally,

it preserves the oak grove

and temporarily impacts

two baseball fields.

With the NBA,

can be a snoozefest for

diehard sports fans.

Luckily, those fans were

treated to a special run to

Team USA won all

seven of its matches during

the tournament in France,

Sarah Young made their

three daughters were born

As Charles Young’s

dental practice flourished,

Charles, Sarah and their

World Cup team history.

Megan Rapinoe, Rose

Lavelle and Alex Morgan

starred on the pitch, repeating

as world champions

and inspiring young athletes

across the country.

It all started with a 13-0

rout of Thailand, then a

convincing 3-0 win over

Chile. Team USA wrapped

up the group stage by topping

Sweden 2-0.

From there, the U.S.

beat Spain, France and

England, all by scores

of 2-1. The games were

much more competitive

and intense, but Team USA

constantly rose to the occasion.

In the final versus

Netherlands, Megan

Rapinoe stepped up to take

a penalty kick 60 minutes

into a scoreless game. With

the world watching, she

calmly put the ball past

the goalkeeper and into

the Women’s Board at the

Art Institute of Chicago.

Charles Young was a

pioneer in the use of X-

rays in his dental practice.

He helped train colleagues

in the dental industry and

also medical doctors in

the use of X-rays long

before radiology became

a specialty. Sadly, it was

the frequent exposure

to X-rays which led to

Charles Young developing

bone cancer. Charles died

in 1945 at the age of 64.

Sarah Young lived another

37 years and passed away

in 1982 in Lake Forest.

Lake Forest Open Lands pairs birds and beer

Katie Copenhaver

Freelance Reporter

“Birds and Brews”, the

July installment of Lake

Forest Open Lands’ Friday

evening adult education

series, had a sellout

attendance on July 12.

Led by the Lake Forest

College Professor of Economics

and Environmental

Science Jeff Sundberg,

the event consisted of a

social gathering featuring

beers from local breweries

followed by a bird walk

at Mellody Farm Nature

Preserve. This was the

first time one of the Friday

evening installments has

sold out, with 40 people

registered, showing the

growing popularity of the


Sundberg explained that

in July some bird species

are on their second brood

of babies for the year and

some are nurturing their

fledglings, or “teenagers”,

as he referred to the still

dependent young birds

born earlier this spring.

Adult birds do not reuse

the same nest for a new set

of eggs and babies because

the used nest is too messy

with bird droppings. They

might tear up the old nest

and rebuild one in its

place, build a new one on

top of the old one or start

over in a new location to

avoid predators.

The most unusual sighting

of the evening was

an owl already out and

perched on a tree branch

while there was still sunlight.

Sundberg noted it

must be a juvenile because

adult owls do not come

out until nightfall and also

since he/she was not fully

feathered. A red-winged

blackbird was chewing

on the owl, which the owl

seemingly ignored. Blue

jays were calling out warnings

to one another about

the owl as well.

“Owls eat rabbits, squirrels,

skunks and other rodents,

not usually other

birds,” Sundberg said.

“But blue jays and blackbirds

will still get nervous

about them.”

Other birds of note that

Sundberg and the group

spotted were an eastern

wood pewee, known as

a flycatcher that will collect

a mouthful of insects

to feed its young. Chimney

shifts, another bird

that collects insects, lives

in the Midwest during

warm months and will migrate

to Brazil in October,

Sundberg explained.

Some sighted a doublecrested

cormorant fly


“By the 1950s, cormorants

were wiped out by

DDT,” Sundberg said.

“By the late ‘80s and early

‘90s they started showing

up again in the upper


He explained that the

use of DDT as a pesticide

affected fish and birds who

ate insects that had been

poisoned by it. DDT was

widely used in the United

States in the middle of the

20th century and led to the

near extinction of bald eagles

and peregrine falcons.

It was banned in 1972, and

since then, the various species

previously affected by

it have made a comeback.

In contrast, red-winged

blackbirds and robins

are highly populous and

common in this area.

“They are generalists,

and they are tough,” said

Sundberg, noting they

have adapted well to land

development and climate


Among those attending

the bird walk were Kristy

and Ben Arditti, who are

LFOLA members and

whose daughter Madison

is attending the organization’s

Eco-Trekker Camp

for the third year this summer.

Kristy grew up in

Wisconsin, where she had

a lot of access to the outdoors

and nature, while

Ben grew up in London,

which acclimated him to

urban life and business.

They settled in Lake Forest,

a community that provides

both of those things,

Jeffrey Sundberg, a professor of economics and environmental

science at Lake Forest College, gives a tour

during the Birds & Brews event Friday, July 12. ALEX


with organizations like

LFOLA and its proximity

to Chicago.

“I love that [Lake Forest]

Open Lands creates a

sense of curiosity in kids,”

Kristy Arditti said. “We

want her to care about the

environment. We are modeling

our interests for her.”

The Ardittis noted that

thanks to three years of

nature camp, Madison

loves all types of critters

and does not get scared by

insects, as some kids do.

PASTA gets biblical with new production

performed “Joseph and

the Amazing Technicolor

Dreamcoat” July 13-14.

“It’s one of the more

challenging shows ever

done,” director Tom Beck

said. “The kids love doing

all the disney ones but this

demands a lot from them.”

Though this play is considered

difficult to master,

the kids as PASTA did it in

just four weeks, and one of

“Joseph and the Amazing

Technicolor Dreamcoat,”

originally created by Tim

Rice and Andrew Lloyd

Webber is an interpretation

of the ‘coat of many

colors’ story from the Book

of Genesis in the Bible. The

tale follows Joseph, the son

of Jacob, as he is sold into

slavery by his brothers because

he had a dream that

he would be better than all

of them.

After being in jail, Joseph

eventually winds up

as the right hand man to

the Pharaoh of Egypt and

“When I found out I

was Joseph I was really

shocked,” Luke Hughes

said. “I was happy, I was

nervous, I was feeling a lot

of emotions.”

Hughes played Joseph

in the Sunday renditions of

the play while John Turelli

took on the role during the

Saturday shows.

“I always look forward

to PASTA,” Turelli said. “I

feel like this camp in particular

really isn’t like another.

I feel like you really

have fun with it and that’s

the main goal.”

Turelli and Hughes have

been doing PASTA during

the summer for a number

of years and were excited

to interact with the younger

generation of actors. Both

Josephs acted as role models

for them throughout the

summer camp.

During the dress rehearsal

on Thursday July 11, the

cast was enthusiastic and

dedicated to getting the

play just right.

years, but Beck remarked

that the group waited to do

Adler Herman, who

played the pharaoh on Saturday,

said the role was

special to him because his

sister played the same role

eight years ago.

“I thought ‘hey I usually

very fitting towards my feel

of how I act.” Herman said.

Fox Duelli plays the

pharaoh on Sundays and

looked forward to having

such a big part in the musical.

“I’ve been doing it since

I was seven, my first show

Adelheidi’s brings a new flavor to downtown Winnetka

Michael Wojtychiw

Contributing Sports Editor

When the Schuppenhauers

opened their first

Adelheidi’s Organics restaurant

in Naples, Fla.,

in 2011, the hope was

to bring organic, gluten-free

items to southwest

Florida. Fast forward

eight years and the

same has done the same

with their newest store,

which opened May 8 in


”Winnetka really needed

one,” manager Tania

Nesterak said about why

the new store was opened

in Winnetka. “[They

thought] it would be really

popular in this area

and people really like

vegan and gluten-free

stuff. They’re more into

this kind of life. It’s a

perfect place. We opened

I think the same day as

the arcade, so we have a

toy store here, we have an

arcade here, we have ice

cream shop here, so it’s

the perfect location.”

The organic ice cream

shop is located at 522 Lincoln

Ave. in downtown

Winnetka in the Winnetka

Walk property with fellow

tenants Games on

Lincoln, an arcade, and

Beat Street, a toy store.

The Winnetka location is

the only one outside of the

original Naples location,

as well as a factory outlet

in Naples.

Since the store opened

in May, Nesterak says

the reception has been a

positive one.

“We have regular customers

who come here a

lot,” she said. “It’s really

cool. I have people who

I know their name, who I

don’t even need to explain

anything on the menu to.

They know everything.

“It’s been really busy,

especially for dinnertime

because we’re open real

late. We’re open until 11

p.m. So after people have

dinner, at 8, 9 p.m. we

have a huge line.”

While Adelheidi’s

might be known for gelato

and ice cream, it does

also have multiple other

items such as cakes, coffee,

shakes, smoothies

and more. The smoothies

are made of real, organic

fruits, while the

shakes and floats are made

with grass-fed organic

We first tried the açai

bowl ($8.95). Like all of

their items, the açai bowl

is made up of fresh ingredients,

namely fresh

blueberries, fresh bananas

and fresh strawberries,

as well as açai. The

bowl was topped with

gluten-free granola hemp

hearts, chocolate nibs and

coconut flakes.

“We change our flavors

every two weeks,” Nesterak

said. “On gelato, one

of our favorites here is fig

and goat cheese. You can’t

even taste goat cheese. It’s

so good. We have rum and

raisin. We have a lot of

different flavors.”

One of the gelato selections

we had was the

Caramel Kiss gelato. This

dish was served with butter

pecan gelato and salted

caramel topping and also

covered by nuts.

Along with all of the

frozen treats made on

the premises, Adelheidi’s

also features a number of

non-frozen items.

We were able to try a

couple of those as well.

First we tried the choco

lavender crunch, which is

dairy- and egg-free, as

try the lavender pizzelles,

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

with Sophia DiVagno

DiVagno is a rising senior

goalkeeper for the Lake

Forest girls soccer team.

When did you start

playing soccer?

I started playing soccer

when I was 5 because my

parents signed me up for

AYSO. I used to be a forward

a long time ago but I

didn’t understand offsides

so my coach put me in goal

and that’s where I still play


What’s your favorite

part of playing soccer?

I love the feeling of

working hard to beat a really

good team. Whether

it’s a friendly match or the

championship game, the

whole team feels great after.

What’s the most

challenging part of

playing soccer?

Being a goalie can be

frustrating because one

mistake can lose a game.

I can’t really contribute

offensively to make up letting

in a goal.

What’s the best

coaching advice you’ve

ever gotten?

The best coaching advice

I’ve received is to

stay confident, keep your

head up and learn from

your mistakes. That has really

helped me today and

I would pass that on to

younger goalkeepers.

Do you have any

pregame rituals or


Before every game I

usually spray water from

my Gatorade bottle on the

turf near the goal for fun.

What’s your favorite

place to eat?

Koya because I love their

sushi and noodles. Luckily,

it’s right down the street

from me so I pick it up all

the time. I recommend the

California Deluxe roll.

Who is your favorite


Either Alex Morgan or

Alyssa Naeher, both players

on the U.S. Women’s

National team, because

they’ve worked so hard to

get where they are today

and both are good inspirations

for young female

soccer players.

photo Submitted

If you won the lottery,

what’s the first thing

you would buy?

I would use it to travel

around Europe and Asia

and anything left over I

would set aside for the future

or use it to help others

in need.

What’s one thing

people don’t know

about you?

I’m extremely scared of

fish, dead or alive. I don’t

like swimming in water

that’s not very clear.

What’s your favorite


They aren’t movies but

I’m a huge fan of Hawaii

Five-0 and 90210 because

I love all the characters.

They’re both also very

entertaining to watch and

have a lot of drama.

LF swim coach assigned

to USA national team

Staff Report

Lake Forest Swim Club

coach Laurel Whittington

will head to South Korea

this month with the USA

Swimming National Team

for the 18th World Swimming


This is Whittington’s seventh

assignment with the

national team and fourth

World Championship assignment.

She was also a

member of the 2016 U.S.

Olympic team staff.

“It’s always an honor

to work with USA Swimming

and the best around

the world in competition,”

Whittington said. “There’s

never a dull moment and I

have so many great memories

to share when I return.

The year before the Olympics

brings out the best in

everyone at the competition

and I can’t wait for

Team USA to give the

world fair warning of what

to expect in Tokyo.”

Laurel’s previous experience

on the global stage

includes the U.S. Olympic

team in 2016, the World

University Games in 2017

and the World Championship

Team in 2011, 2012

and 2015.

“Every competition has

been a learning experience,”

Whittington said. “I

become a better coach for

my team each time I work

with our National Team.”

she’s a playmaker. She’s

the new role model for

me. She’s small, but she’s


Allan: I really look up

to Morgan, Rapinoe and

Carli Lloyd because they

are captains of the team.

I strive to be the best

leader and love how they

lead the team. Rapinoe

got the Golden Boot and

golden ball, so I thought

that was awesome. I used

to be more shy, but I am

definitely more of a vocal


This was the first time

the Women’s World

Cup reached one billion

television viewers. How

does the women’s team

elevate the state of

women’s sports?

Stern: I don’t wanna

say I was surprised, but I

think it’s just really nice to

see how into it everyone’s

getting. A few years ago

for the 2015 World Cup,

it didn’t seem as publicly

recognized as this one did.

I was in New York for the

final game and even just

seeing all the billboards of

all the women’s faces literally

everywhere, it was

really inspiring to see how

far we’ve become, especially

for younger athletes,

too. It’s really important to

see representation everywhere.

Weaver: I think it’s

amazing. I think all women’s

soccer, all women’s

sports in general, need to

have the same recognition

as men. I’m happy to be a

part of women’s soccer, to

cheer for women who are

super inspiring. And now

that they’re getting the recognition

they’re getting, I

don’t think it should take a

huge World Cup game for

everybody to watch women’s

sports. If it’s a game

against a random team,

girls should want to watch

that game as well.

Allan: When we won

the World Cup in 2014,

I think less people were

aware of it. Now that we

won it, a second time, people

are paying attention to

women more, especially

the women’s national

team. This world isn’t just

run by men, it’s run by

women. The men’s team

isn’t nowhere as good as

the women.

With the popularity

growing, there seems

to still between a wide

margin between men and

women’s compensation, do

you think women should

be paid equally?

Stern: I don’t know all

the specific numbers, but

even beyond regular salary,

with the training and

transportation, there needs

to be a lot of improvement.

It’s kind of obvious. We

don’t know the exact salaries,

but someone got injured

on a field that wasn’t

prepared properly.

Weaver: Yea, I mean

this is their job, they work

so hard. This is their job

and they’re all best friends,

which I think is so neat.

Allan: When I was

younger, I wanted to become

a professional soccer

player. People around

me and my parents would

say, ‘you don’t get paid as

much.’ I just think that’s

ridiculous because women

should get paid at what level

you’re at. I don’t think it

should matter gender-wise.

Titans bash their way to a district title

Nick Frazier, Sports Editor

Lake Forest American

Legion Post 264 Titans

won the Illinois 10th District

Championship on July

8 to improve their record

to 11-1-1.

In the 7-1 win over Fox

Lake Post 521, the Titans

raced out to a 5-0 lead after

two innings before the rest

of the game was rained out

on July 2. The game finished

six days later. Ryan

Klainof started the game

on the mound for Lake

Forest, then finished it on

July 8, pitching six shutout

innings. Peter Turelli hit a

two-run home run in the

sixth inning to secure the


“It was a nice way to

finish our regular season

there to get to 11-1-1 on the

season,” Titans coach Kyle

Wix said.

According to Wix, the

Titans have found success

this season due to a powerheavy

top of the batting

order. Sluggers like Turelli

and Sean Lynch provided a

big booast at the plate.

“In a large majority of

games, we’ve gotten ahead

early,” Wix said. “We’re a

team that likes to strike first

with a strong offense, the

top half of our lineup can

compete with any team out

there. We really have a lot

of power punches early on

in the game. That allows us

to get ahead and gives our

pitchers a lot of confidence

there. When we have success,

it’s getting ahead and

Another strong performer

for the Titans this season

has been Brady Christoph,

LFA’s hockey camp continues to thrive

Nick Frazier, Sports Editor

Lake Forest Academy

athletic director Darrin

Madeley barely has time

to catch his breath these


That’s because Madeley

is in the midst of running

a youth hockey sleepaway

camp at LFA for kids age

six to 14. More than 130

young skaters sign up for

one of the four week-long

sessions at the MacKenzie

Ice Arena on campus.

Madeley, a former NHL

goaltender for the Ottawa

Senators, has been running

his hockey camp at Lake

Forest Academy for 14

years. He takes pride in his

camp’s emphasis on creating

a fun environment for

the kids.

“My camp’s about having

fun,” Madeley said. “About

six years ago I changed the

focus where it’s not that old

school where you yell and

scream and you’re going to

do sprints and stuff. I wanted

the kids that wanted to

come in here, do three hours

a day working on power

skating and skills, but also

in between they’re going to

go play soccer and they’re

going to swim everyday, we

play beach soccer here, we

have ball hockey court over

there, so they’re able to do a

mix of stuff.”

The first session comes

at the end of June, then two

more sessions following

the Fourth of July, then one

more week before the football

preseason starts up. All

sessions sold out by the end

of March this year.

Helping Madeley run the

camps are his former and

current hockey players. That

includes Charlie O’Connor,

who played at Bemidji State

University and recently

played for the Detroit Red

Wings farm team.

Meanwhile, current

LFA skaters like Lena Ansari

help run the program

as well. It’s a team effort

from LFA students new

and old that help things run


“It’s awesome,” Madeley

said. “They come back

so they can hang out with

each other, I get them a

couple of hotel rooms.”

An experienced hockey

player and athletic director,

Madeley has plenty to offer

the aspiring hockey stars.

“What I tell them right

off the hop in the opening

meeting to the players and

parents is there’s a couple

thing you’re going to

learn here,” Madeley said.

“Number one, please and

thank you are going to be

the two phrases you’re going

to say the most. Doesn’t

matter if it’s in the cafeteria

or a coach helping you,

those are big. The other is

positivity, I can’t stand being

around negative people,

and I want them to, if

you’re having a rough day,

just don’t bring the next

kid around down with you,

come see me and we’ll get

you back in.”

There are some other

rules at LFA’s hockey camp,

namely that the campers

play “pond hockey” for 45

minutes at the end of each

day. That means no hockey

shifts, no offsides, or icing.

Madeley also requires that

a team has to pass before


He also doesn’t evaluate

each skater at the end of

the session. This way, the

kids don’t stress their performance

and focus more

on enjoying themselves on

the ice.

“To me, there’s no fun in

that,” Madeley said. “The

evaluation I want from

them is at the end of the

week if they felt they improved,

and that’s the grade

they’re going to give themselves.

None of you are A

skaters, and none of you

are A shooters, none of you

are A stick handlers, those

are the guys that are playing

the Blackhawks and

the Penguins, your job is to

come here and have some

fun and enjoy the experience.”

The hockey camp isn’t

the only one at LFA in the

summer. There is Panther

Camp, a 10-week summer

camp, and MasterChef Jr.

had a camp there a few

weeks ago. There’s a music

camp, a science camp, a lacrosse

camp with over 170

kids, and more.

Yet the hockey camp is

the only sleepaway camp,

and Madeley is seeing results

from it. He said at

least 60 kids have attended

LFA after taking part in the

hockey camp.

“Some of them don’t

even play hockey by the

time they get here, they

were just eight or nine years

old when they were playing

club hockey and moved

on to soccer, lacrosse or

something,” Madeley said.

“We’re on this campus, got

that comfort feeling about

this place. For me, it’s just

a good camp to have.”

North Shore soccer players react to U.S. World Cup win

Drew Favakeh, Sport Intern

The 2019 FIFA Women’s

World Cup has come

and gone, but that doesn’t

mean the impact from the

summer’s games won’t be

felt for months and years

to come.

With the U.S Women’s

National Team winning

the world’s top prize once

again, The Leader’s Sports

Intern Drew Favakeh

caught up with area girls

soccer players to see how

they enjoyed the tournament

and what they’ll remember

the most.

What moment do you

remember most from the

United States’ 7-0 run and

eventual fourth World Cup


Jamie Stern (Highland

Park): I liked when they

played France just because

that was the home country,

but I thought it was cool

anyway because the U.S.

had a bunch of fans.

Emma Weaver (New

Trier): I obviously remember

Rose Lavelle’s

goal and Megan Rapinoe’s

penalty kick, but I remember

more of how they

played, their playing style,

not just one individual

player. That’s what makes

them so special because

they’re all so talented.

They play well together.

They anticipate where the

ball is going to be played

and they know their teammates

well enough, so

they’re two steps ahead

of their opponents. Head

coach Jim Burnside always

says I have good

field vision, so I can kind

of relate.

Ainsley Allan (Lake

Forest): I thought it was

great to see the team to

win two World Cups in a

row. I was sitting on my

couch watching the game,

and I remember feeling

amazed and happy for

Lavelle because she’s a

younger player, and honestly,

going into the tournament,

I didn’t think

she’d make that big of an

impact. When she started

over Lindsey Horan, it

was surprising because I

thought Horan was the better

player. Her scoring that

goal definitely boosted her


Who is the player you look

up to most on the team?

Stern: I really like Kelly

O’Hara because she’s an

outside back and I’m an

outside back. She’s confident,

but she’s quietly

confident, which I think

is cool because it’s not in

your face. I’m not saying

any of the players are

like that, but I like how

she’s kind of low-key. I’ve

played outside-back most

of my life, but the past

couple years, I didn’t play

center-mid. Sometimes, I

played outside-mid. My

coaches just put me in the

game where they think I

can play.

Weaver: Since I’ve

been really little, it’s been

Alex Morgan; I’ve loved

her. Since newer and

younger players are coming

in, I’ve started to really

love Lavelle. I think she’s

so cute and such a dynam-

Going Places

Yale commit Ansari credits LFA, club field hockey for success

Nick Frazier, Sports Editor

Lena Ansari has been

playing sports as far back

as she can remember.

Her older brother,

Obaid, and her father were

both sports nuts, so Lena

tried just about everything

as a kid — except field


Lena, a Glenview native,

didn’t pick up a field

hockey stick until a few

months before her freshman

year at Lake Forest

Academy. Four years later,

Ansari graduates LFA with

12 varsity letters and will

compete for Yale University’s

field hockey team.

With her brother and

father constantly pushing

her on the field and on the

court as a kid, Lena naturally

developed a love for


“I always knew I wanted

to play sports for as long

as I could because I love

sports,” Ansari said. “I

didn’t know which sport

necessarily, I just always

knew I wanted to play in


Lake Forest Academy

was a perfect place for

the 5-foot-4 Ansari to unleash

her competitiveness.

Besides field hockey, she

played ice hockey and lacrosse

for the Caxys, captaining

all three teams her

senior year.

While she shined in

hockey and lacrosse, Ansari

loved field hockey the


“It was the last sport

I tried,” Ansari said. “I

started it in high school,

from there I just picked it

up through the other sports

and got a hang of it pretty

fast because of the other

sports I was in. From there,

I just fell in love with the

sport and started playing it

over the summer and going

to college camps and

stuff like that.”

Ansari also joined

Windy City Field Hockey

after finishing her freshman

season with the LFA.

Based in Northbrook,

Windy City features select

and travel teams, as well

as a summer academy for

girls looking to get an elite


Most importantly, she

played forward with

Windy City while she

played midfield with the

Caxys. The Bulldogs recruited

her as a forward, so

her time with the club field

hockey program surely

paid off.

“It’s been really helpful

because I’ve been able to

play with other elite players

who also are going on

to play in college,” Ansari

said. “It’s high level,

there’s practices very often

and tournaments where

other college coaches get

to see you a lot.”

A first team All-State selection

in 2017 and 2018,

Ansari’s Division I-level

Lake Forest Academy alumnus Lena Ansari fights for

possession in a game her senior year. Photos submitted

talent was evident. A few

schools reached out, but

once Ansari and Yale connected,

the Bulldogs were

her top priority. She committed

to Yale in April of

her junior year.

“I was looking at a few

other Divison I schools,

but Yale just stood out to

me specifically because

it’s very high academics

and high athletics so I

could excel at both there,”

Ansari said. “They’re getting

a lot better, they just

started implementing a

new strength and conditioning

and nutrition program.

We have been doing

better and winning more

games, we’re on the rise at

the moment.”

Besides the academics

and the athletics, Ansari

said Yale’s campus in New

Haven was beautiful. She

also likes how her future

teammates and coaches are

nice and welcoming.

“I’ve really gotten to

know them this summer,

just getting in touch and

getting prepared with the

workouts we have to do

over the summer,” Ansari

said. “Through that I’ve

created good friends on

the team, I’m excited to go


Ansari is well-prepared

for Ivy League athletics,

thanks to her time with the

Caxys. She got to play on

the varsity field hockey

team as a freshman with

little game experience.

That freshman fall went a

long way into fine-tuning

her skills on the field.

On top of that, Ansari

made plenty of friends

through the sports she

played at Lake Forest

Academy, especially field


“The field hockey program

at Lake Forest Academy

has helped me so

much,” Ansari said. “As

Ansari captained the

Caxys her senior year.

a freshman we had great

seniors and just a great

program overall, as a

freshman being able to go

straight to varsity without

playing before, I wouldn’t

have gotten that opportunity

at any other school. Just

being able to play at a high

level and with some great

players has helped me so


The move from the

North Shore to New England

is a big one, but Ansari

is use to that. She spent

four years of her childhood

living in London before

her family relocated to

Glenview in 2006.

As long as there’s a

game going on, Ansari is

in her comfort zone. She

admits there will be a

learning process at Yale,

but her objective is simple.

“Hopefully I can help

them score goals and really

just be more offensive,”

Ansari said.

“We’re a team that likes to strike first with

a strong offense, the top half of our lineup can

compete with any other team out there.”
