‘Cow Pie Moo-lette’ brings new twist to Shermerfest

Elizabeth Manaster

Freelance Reporter

The early morning

hours of Sunday, Sept. 15,

were filled with cloudy

skies and threatening rain


Vintage car collectors

in the area frequently

checked the weather reports,

wondering if they

would be safe to bring out

their prized possessions.

By 11 a.m., the skies

cleared, and the scene

was set for a near-perfect

afternoon for the 41st annual


The event is put on each

year by the Northbrook

Historical Society at Village

Green Park to raise

funds for the all-volunteer

organization to keep its

buildings open and running

and to continue its


As the antique cars

started to arrive at the

park, booths were set up

for painting kids faces and

promoting local clubs,

while the Sunset Food

truck was popping corn.

By noon, music filtered

across the lawn from the

gazebo as John McHugh

and Company’s band

filled the scene with a mix

of classic rock and roll.

Local families strolled

along the sidewalks enjoying

free balloons and even

train rides for the younger

children. Northbrook residents

Phil and Sheila Rossi

were enjoying hot dogs

with their boys Teddy and

Franky after the brothers

took a ride on the train

and a visit with Carrie, the

10-month-old Holstein

cow from Wagner Farm,

who was to be the main

attraction later in the day

at the inaugural “Cow Pie


Sitting next to the Rossi

family were Curt and Linda

Rodin, along with their

grandchildren, Sean and

Cassie, who were also enjoying

the afternoon.

“I’ve brought some

of my cars to Shermerfest

in previous years,”

said Northbrook resident

Curt, who owns a 1958

Mercedes convertible, a

1955 Jaguar convertible

and a 1963 Cadillac. “But

not this year. This year I

brought my grandchildren

because their parents are

in the hospital with their

new baby brother, Tony.”

But there were plenty

of automobiles to look

at, including a 1959 red

Cadillac convertible with

tail fins designed by Harley

Earl that had once belonged

to Atlanta Braves

pitcher John Smoltz.

“I bought it at an auction

in Auburn, Ind.,” said

Mort Balabam, of Wilmette.

He told of how his

buddies all pooled their

resources at the time so

that he could pay for the

purchase he had made.

Balabam also had to call

the pitcher himself to find

out how to turn on the radio

because Smoltz had

installed a tape player and

had rewired the radio. He

had tried numerous times

to reach the pitcher and finally

said, ‘Tell him I have

Big Red.’ Smoltz then finally

answered the call.

If families weren’t so

interested in the collectible

car show, they could

also get a close look at a

live Swainson’s Hawk,

who had accompanied

naturalist Ryan DePauw

of the Forest Preserves of

Cook County to the event.

The hawk sat on De-

Pauw’s hand as children

asked questions and

checked out the pelts of

various local wild animals

and learned a little about

native wildlife.

Joy Stuart, marketing

and communications manager

for The Northbrook

Park District, was manning

a booth and enticing

youngsters to learn a little

bit of Northbrook history

by engaging them in a

scavenger hunt. Children

could pick up a card at the

booth with three questions

about Northbrook that

could easily be answered

with a little investigating

inside the Historical Society

Museum. They could

then return the card with

the answers for a prize – a

blue cow bell.

“We work very closely

with Judy (Hughes, president

of The Historical Society),”

Stuart said. “And

we were trying to come

up with a way to get the

young kids interested in

visiting the museum. We

tried to pick questions

that they could find the

answers to quickly themselves

once they were inside

the museum.”

At 2 p.m., it was time

for Cow pie Moo-lette,

Ron Bernardi’s idea for

something new this year.

The plan was to sell

squares marked off on

a fenced-in grid. Each

square sold for $20. Carrie

the Holstein was then

brought into the fenced

area and left to munch on

grass and hopefully deliver

a “pie” on one of the

squares. The owner of that

square would then win the

$1,000 prize.

Bernardi gamely officiated

and entertained the

crowd as the 600-pound

Holstein wandered about

for almost 40 minutes, but

without delivering for the

disappointed crowd.

Finally, the cow was led

out to be taken home and

In Memoriam

Former Village President Gerald Friedman

remembered as ‘rock of Northbrook community’

Alan P. Henry

Freelance Reporter

In 1950,

E l a i n e


asked her


Jerry to

drive her up

to Highland


Park to attend a wedding


Having always wanted

to live in a small town,

and looking to kill some

time, he decided to check

out the next-door sparsely

populated community of

Northbrook. The following

weekend they came

back, bought a home on

Church Street, and never

looked back.

Today, 70 years later,

it is widely accepted that

Jerry Friedman, both as

a village government official

for 20-plus years

and as a community force

for decades more, was

one of the most consequential

players in the

development and maturation

of Northbrook as an

economically vibrant, upscale


Friedman, who died

Sept. 9, 2019 at age 94,

was praised by Ron Bernardi,

another longtime

pillar of the Northbrook


“Thank you for being a

pioneer, doing the tireless

work, laying the foundation,

having the vision for

the future for Northbrook,

that we all enjoy today

and for generations to

come,” he says in an online


Friedman, who was 17

when Pearl Harbor was

attacked, got permission

from his father to serve

in the Marines. He served

in the Pacific theater and

was awarded two Purple

Hearts. He then graduated

with business and

law degrees from DePaul

University, became a

C.P.A. and went on to be

a co-owner of a successful

paper packaging business,

Chippewa Paper Products,

that primarily serviced the

food industry.

In 1959, village president

Bert Pollak selected

Friedman to become a

member of the Plan Commission

after hearing him

speak at a public meeting.

He was soon a Village

Board trustee and served

as Village Board President

from 1973 to 1981.

Early on, Friedman

spearheaded the development

of a master plan and

helped squire the village

through the go-go growth

years of the 1960s and


For a time, that growth

was so rapid that the village

board met twice a

week and held sessions on

Saturday mornings, too.

“It was quite hectic with

expansion of the village

and developers coming

in every week,” he said in

an interview with “Northbrook

Voices,” an oral history

project produced by

the Northbrook Historical

Society and Northbrook

Public Library. It got to

the point where he sometimes

lost his voice at

board meetings just from

reading the ordinances out

loud, he recalled.

Among his notable

achievements was the establishment

in 1963 of the

water treatment plant. As

he explained it on “Northbrook

Voices,” the village

had been buying water

from Glencoe, which

kept raising its rates when

Northbrook expanded and

needed more water.

Glencoe then got other

lakefront communities to

join them in refusing to

give Northbrook riparian


“We were just about

ready to give up when I

always say God came to

our rescue,” Friedman

said. North Shore Congregation

Israel had purchased

lakefront land in

Glencoe to build a larger

temple and made a deal

with Northbrook to let

them build their facility.

To this day, Northbrook

is the only off-shore community

that draws water

directly from the lake. But

there was more to the politics

of water, as Friedman


“If some developer in

an unincorporated area

wanted to get our water

they had to incorporate

and in order to incorporate

they had to abide by

our zoning and building

codes, and we were able

to control to a large extent

how the village was developed.’’

In a village newsletter,

current Village President

Sandy Frum has called

the water system “one

of our greatest assets …

thanks to the foresight of

our village officials, under

the direction of our past

village president Gerald


Friedman was also instrumental

in converting

the fire department from

a volunteer force to a professional

full-time department

and in getting full

time ambulance service.


The Northbrook Civic

Association, of which

he was a member, paid

for the first ambulance.

He also helped enact the

1968 Fair Housing Ordinance

and development

of Northbrook’s industrial

park at the site of the former

Sky Harbor Airport.

Further, he stood firm as

Highland Park brought a

series of lawsuits against

the village trying to

block the development of

Northbrook Court, which

opened in 1976.

In retirement, Friedman

devoted time to numerous

non-profits including the

Northbrook Symphony,

which he helped get off

the ground, and Jewish

Council on Urban Affairs.

He also managed to hit

three hole-in-ones on the

golf course.

“I was there for one of

them,” said his son, Matt


Friedman was a man

of deep faith, and was a

founding member of Congregation

Hakafa. He was

selected to be its first president

and remained a vital

part of its leadership to his

final days.

Rabbi Bruce Elder said

of Friedman: “He was a

rock of our community

and a friend to each of us.

We could always count on

him being there. We miss

him dearly.”

Rabbi Robert Marx,

who founded Hakafa in

1983, called Friedman’s

life one “devoted to great

ideas and challenging

ventures” and his leadership

at Hakafa “an enduring

Glenview Plan Commission

Proposed development at Willow-Pfingsten intersection heads for third public hearing

Residents again

come out in force

to air grievances

Chris Pullam

Freelance Reporter

A second three-hour

Glenview Plan Commission

meeting, which again

included more than an hour

of public commentary, still

wasn’t enough to unpack

the details of a proposed

development at the Southwest

corner of Willow and

Pfingsten roads.

During its Aug. 27 meeting,

the Glenview Plan

Commission unanimously

voted to continue the discussion

until its Tuesday,

Sept. 10 meeting in order

to further flush out the proposal.

Specifically, both

the commission and the

developer, GW Properties,

hoped to walk residents

through the results of a

traffic-impact study, which

GW Properties claimed

should calm residents’ concerns

that the project would

hinder drivability in the


Still, a boardroom

packed with residents opposed

to the development

led the Plan Commission

to schedule a third meeting

for Thursday, Sept. 24, to

continue the discussion.

Currently, the 8.5-acre

subject property holds a

two-story, single-family

residence and several accessory


As proposed, the development

would replace

those structures with several

commercials buildings

located on the north 6.2

acres of the site, including a

35,000-square-foot grocery

store and multi-tenant retail

buildings totaling 28,600

square feet. The project

would also include six

new single-family homes,

served by a proposed extension

of Charlie Court,

on the south 2.352 acres.

Although the development

plans discussed on

Sept. 10 were “substantially

consistent with the original

development plans”

pitched during the August

meeting, GW Properties

did make several tweaks,

according to Glenview

Planning Manager Jeff


Those changes include

shifting 300 square feet of

proposed retail space between

two buildings, modifying

the location of underground

storm sewers to

preserve mature trees, and

moving one of the trash enclosures

to a more internal

location on the site.

None of the changes directly

impacted residents’

chief concern: how the development

would impact


“Traffic at Pfingsten and

Willow is very, very bad,”

Glenview resident Jerry Tivers

said. “Now we’re talking

about cuts and changes,

and things are just going to

get worse, and just so we

can have a development

that nobody in this room

seems to want.

“If we want something to

bring in money, why don’t

we have a gentleman’s club

or a permanent circus,” he

said in jest, “both which

would bring in more money.”

According to Rogers,

traffic studies indicate that

approximately 36,000 vehicles

use Willow Road

each day, even though

an IDOT study suggests

a maximum capacity of

34,000 vehicles, meaning

that current traffic already

exceeds the intended use

by 2,000 cars daily.

To accommodate the

daily use, Willow Road

would need to be expanded

to three lanes in each direction,

to enable the road to

handle up to 50,000 cars

each day. Upcoming IDOT

improvements wouldn’t

expand Willow Road from

its current two lanes.

They would, however,

add two new deceleration

right-turn lanes on Willow

road in both directions at

the Pfingsten Road intersection,

which will help

ease some traffic burdens

in the area of the proposed


According to Rogers,

however, current and future

traffic density has little

impact on how the Plan

Commission can assess

the development, since use

of public roads isn’t predicated

on a first-come, firstserved


“Just because there is

a lot of existing traffic on

Willow and Pfingsten, that

is not a sufficient reason to

deny the development of

vacant property,” Rogers

said. “All property owners

are provided the right to

use and access public rights

of way.”

However, some residents

took traffic congestion a

step forward to voice concerns

about an increased

potential for traffic accidents.

“I’ve heard a very sanitized

report here tonight

about traffic and anecdotal

events and data and statistics,”

Glenview resident Jerome

Orbach said. “Maybe

we want to humanize that

a little bit. I live on Charlie

Court, and for years

we had a young man on

Charlie Court — a boy, a

terrific young man — he

was a scout from his head

Glenview’s Plan Commission will conduct a third public hearing on a proposal from

developer GW Properties for a project consisting of up to 63,600 square feet of new

retail and restaurant space. Rendering Courtesy of GW Properties

to his heart to his feet to his

hands. If he had packages

to carry, he would volunteer

to carry your packages.

“He was an angel, an absolute

angel. On February

22 of ’05, this young man

rode his bicycle outside

the safe confines of Charlie

Court and was killed on

the corner of Pfingsten and

Willow [after being struck

by a car]. The next time I

saw him was at the Scott

Funeral Home.”

According to trafficengineering


Kenig, Lindgren, O’Hara,

Aboona, which was hired

by GW Properties to conduct

a traffic-impact study

regarding the proposed

development, there are

currently 1.15 crashes per

every 1 million vehicles

that approach the intersection.

An estimated 48,050

vehicles pass through the

intersection each day.

While the proposed development

would generate

approximately 3,600 daily

two-way trips, leading to

an estimated .78 percent increase

in crashes, that number

would be offset by an

undetermined percent by

IDOT’s pending improvements

at the intersection.

For comparison, the

intersection of Lake Avenue

and Waukegan Road,

which services 46,650 vehicles

per day, experiences

2.71 crashes per million

vehicle approaches. The

Willow Road and Patriot

Boulevard intersections,

with 50,100 daily vehicles,

experiences 1.34 crashes

per million.

While some residents

contested that the studies

weren’t conducted at peak

times, Luay Aboona, principal

with KLOA, said that

they were conducted in accordance

with IDOT regulations

that ensure all data

is comparable.

He also told the crowd

that while the proposed

development could generate

3,600 daily trips, some

will come during off-peak

hours when traffic is light,

and many of the trips during

peak hours will come

from commuters who were

already driving past the site

as part of their normal route.

“Still, it’s important to

know that any new development

will create traffic,”

Aboona said. “There is no

doubt that there will be traffic

generated by this development

compared to what

is there now. Commercial

developments want to be


at nodes and intersections

where there is high volume

of traffic because they rely

on that traffic for their business

and visibility.”

Mitch Goltz, principal of

GW Properties, took time

to address another chief

concern: whether vehicles

will back up and potentially

make turns in reverse while

in front of the proposed

grocery store. According

to Goltz, that setup isn’t

in GW Property Group’s


“Our full intention with

loading the grocer onsite

is to come from Willow

Road,” he said. “We did do

the test exercise to show

how that would take place

off Pfingsten, but we don’t

intend that trucks would be

coming from Pfingsten. …

Again, backing up in front

of the store is not ideal for

anybody, and it’s definitely

not our intent.”

The Glenview Plan

Commission will reopen

the discussion during its

Tuesday, Sept. 24 meeting.

Eventually, the Plan Commission

will pass a recommendation

for approval or

denial to the Glenview Village

Board, which will then

take a preliminary and final

Glenbrook High Schools D225 Board of Education

Officials talk insurance, approve

traditional 2020-21 calendar

Neil Milbert

Freelance Reporter

The Glenbrook High

Schools District 225

Board of Education spent

much of its Monday, Sept.

9 meeting discussing the

pre-renewal of the district’s

health insurance


In 2020, the district will

move to Jan. 1-Dec. 31

calendar-year plans, Human

Resources Director

Alice Raflores said.

Consultants projected

a rate adjustment of 0.2

percent in the PPO (Preferred

Provider Organization)

plans, an increase of

1.4 percent in the HMO

(Health Maintenance Organization)

plans and an

increase of 6.8 percent in

the dental plans in 2020.

“There’s a lot of work

that needs to be done with

the consortium,” Raflores

said. “The overwhelming

thing is whether or not we

should still be in the consortium.”

HMO plans cost less

than PPO plans but coverage

is significantly more


PPO plans generally offer

greater flexibility in

seeing specialists, have

larger networks and offer

some out-of-network coverage.

Joel Taub, the board

member with expertise

in insurance, pointed out

the average claim amount

“The reason HMOs are

popular is they’re usually

“Smaller networks with

more constraints.”

If cost containment

isn’t implemented, Taub

predicted a substantial increase

in insurance prices

for the district in the years

to come because of a combination

of inflation and


He said inflation went

down from 11.5 percent

in 2007 to 5.7 percent in

2018, but nevertheless,

Northbrook students raise funds for local organizations with lemonade stand

Chris Pullam

Freelance Reporter

A handful of Northbrook

grade-schoolers are proving

that when life gives you

lemons, you should make

the world a better place.

Over the past four years,

a simple one-day-per-year

lemonade stand has transformed

from a way to

spend a hot summer day

to a way to support local

organizations like the

Northfield Township Food

Pantry, Lurie Children’s

Hospital and Take No Bullying,

a nonprofit striving

to limit the impact of bullying

on children through

education and communitybased


Each summer, Northbrook

neighbors Emma and

Lainie Fliegel, 13, and Sara

Fine, 10, pick a new charity

to support through selling

pink and yellow lemonade

for one day at the corner

of Greenwood Road and

Brian Drive.

This time, fellow neighbor

Naomi Szmuilowicz,

13, joined the team, and

the group also sold brownies

alongside their refreshments.

They raised more

than $150, and it all went

to the Northfield Township

Food Pantry.

“For Lurie Children’s

Hospital, we just thought it

would be nice to help kids

like us who have cancer,”

said Sara Fine, a fifth-grader

at Willowbrook Elementary

School. “We supported

Take No Bullying because

nobody likes bullying, and

we wanted to help stop that.

And this year, we wanted

people to donate cans to

the Food Pantry, because

no one should be hungry in

our community.”

“It’s nice to do things for

other people,” added Naomi

Szmuilowicz, an eightgrader

at Maple School. “It

feels good to have so many

people want to support it.

We’re very fortunate, and

we thought we should give

back to the people who

aren’t as fortunate as we


The girls do almost all

the work by themselves.

Together, they mixed

the lemonade, baked the

brownies and painted the

stand that displayed their


“I don’t normally do too

much to help with charity,

but the lemonade stand is

something I can do over the

summer to help my community,”

Lainie Fliegel

added. “I think it shows

that you don’t have to do

too much to make an impact.”

The effort got an extra,

unplanned boost the first

year when a bus carrying

new Northbrook/Glenview

School District 30 teachers

during orientation passed

through the neighborhood.

The teachers, as well as a

few accompanying administrators,

made a pit stop,

and a tradition was born.

“On the first year, we

opened the lemonade stand

on a random day as a summer

activity and it just so

happened to be the same

day that the new teachers

were going through the

community,” said Becky

Fliegel, Lainie and Emma’s

mom. “Lainie was standing

on the corner at the right

time, and all of a sudden a

tradition was born.”

Each year since then,

Becky Fliegel, co-president

of the Maple School PTO,

contacts Dr. Scott Carlson,

the principal at Willowbrook,

to align the dates

of the lemonade stand and

the new teacher tour. For

four years in a row now, the

group has helped support

the grade-schoolers philanthropic


“Knowing they’re supporting

us helps a lot because

people drive by on

the street all the time, but

they don’t always stop,”

Emma Fliegel said. “It feels

nice that the school is helping

us and helping us raise

money for the community.”

Sometimes, the girls

are even able to meet new

teachers before the rest of

their classmates, which

helps both groups. This

year, the Fliegels were able

to meet their new band

teachers ahead of classes.

“I think it helps them a

little bit, too, since they’ll

already know some of us

on their first day,” Lainie

Fliegel said.

But at the end of the day,

the girls are just happy

they were able to make

an impact with their hard


“It shows that even if

big, you can still help people,”

Emma Fliegel said.

“Even if you’re just sitting

around at home, you

can help with something

as simple as a lemonade


Although three of the

girls, including two cofounders,

will leave District

30 at the end of the

school year for Glenbrook

School District 225,

they’re optimistic that the

lemonade stand will return

next summer.



agreement for stormwater

project nears approval

A non-binding agreement

is now in place for

the stormwater project

with the binding agreement

to be worked out in

the coming months.

Steve Wilson, executive

director of the Wilmette

Park District, provided an

update Sept. 9 regarding

the timeline for putting

together the binding agreement.

It was announced

at the Wilmette Park District

Board meeting that

both the Park and Village

boards passed a nonbinding

Memorandum of

Understanding last month.

The purpose of the MOU

was to give the Village assurance

that it can begin

to incur substantial engineering

design costs based

upon the agreed locations

of the underground vaults.

Now that the non-binding

MOU has been approved

by both boards, the next

step is the binding intergovernmental


The district’s legal counsel

will draft the IGA using

the West Park Sanitary

Storage project IGA as the

base document since it is

for a similar project and

between the same two parties.

The West Park project

was completed in 2016.

“We’ve had some recent

agreement around those

terms,” Wilson said. “That

does not mean we’re just

changing the details and

sending it on. There’s a

lot more that’s going to go

into it, but that’s just the

starting draft.”

The district plans to

send the draft to the Village’s

legal counsel by

mid-October. The Village’s

legal counsel will

then review the document

and make suggested edits.

Once an agreed upon draft

of the IGA is complete,

each board will review it,

discuss and make suggested

edits if needed.

“Someone who defends

their country against enemies;

a person who feels

strong support for their

He reminded everyone

to thank a patriot, either

face-to-face with a handshake

or wave, or by writing

them a letter.

“Be a patriot. Follow

the six pillars of the Character

trustworthiness, respect,

responsibility, fairness,

Carlson said.

The assembly concluded

with a moment of silence,

led by music teacher Kurt


Before heading to class,

teachers and students had

the opportunity to thank

first responders while they

visited the firetruck, ambulance

GBN students ready

musical ‘Matilda’

Freelance Reporter




Glenbrook North’s upcoming

musical theater

production “Matilda”

challenges the cast with

the task of using song and

dance to tell the story of

a young girl who reminds

everyone that good always

triumphs over evil.

Running Thursday,

Sept. 26- Saturday, Sept.

28, the small cast of

25 GBN students gives

young performers the

chance to start the school

year off on a musical note.

“Each year Glenbrook

North and Glenbrook

South students collaborate

on a musical production

but every few years, each

school presents their own

production,” Director Julie

Ann Hill said. “These

kids are used to performing

in a large group of

about 80 actors, but now

there’s just about 25 cast

members, meaning each

one has a greater responsibility

to bear.”

Because the production

occurs so early in the

school year, preparations

began last May.

Students auditioned and

began learning their parts

over the summer and the

cast even had the opportunity

to see “Matilda”

Cast members prepare for the upcoming production.

Upon returning to

school in late August, actors

got down to business

— practicing almost daily

to learn the choreography,

additional musical scores

and their own individual

lines as well.

For Senior Courtney

Mazeika, “Matilda” was

one of her first big musicals,

commenting on the

unique challenge that musical

theater brings.

“I’ve performed in

more plays than musicals

so it is definitely a challenge

to mix in singing,

dancing and acting,” she

said. “There are a lot of

different parts and things

to consider. Plus, we are

a pretty small cast, so that

means you really must

know your part and really

know it well. ”Mazeika


Vocal director Chad Davidson

echoed Mazeika’s


“The order in which the

actors learn is also important,”

he said. “It’s hard

to choreograph a song,

without learning all of the

music first. With musical

theater there are a lot of

moving pieces and everyone

has to work together,

including myself and the

Director. Collaboration is

necessary to create a production

that flows.”

From Page 37

For Freshman Matthew

Blonder, a high school

musical production vastly

differs from his experiences

of the past.

“The talent of the cast

and the expectations are

definitely greater than

anything I’ve done in the

past,” he said. “Many of

us have multiple roles, so

it’s interesting to switch

from one character to the

next. I’ve also learned

how to convey a message

without saying a word.

For some of my characters,

It is all about my

body language and facial

expressions that are used

to send a message.”

Sophomore Rachel Harris

plays Agatha Trunchbull,

most definitely the

wickedest character of the

production. The challenge

of being pure evil is one

that Harris relishes in.

“I’ve played the antagonist

before, but something

about being Trunchbull is

especially fun,” she said. “I

use a lot of humor to make

her my own; I also rely on

vocal techniques that make

me sound very regal and

wacky. Essentially, Trunchbull

is just a very jealous

person, looking to ruin the

lives of others, but as the

audience will see, she does

not succeed.”

Abby Wrench, also a

Sophomore, plays a young

boy named Tommy. She is

part of the ensemble, commissioned

with the task of

bringing individuality to

the group dynamic.

“Portraying Tommy

was very fun, because he

is a mischievous trickster,

so there is a lot to work

with,” Wrench said. “One

of the things that I learned

when playing the role of

a child is that every emotion

is enhanced. We are

reminded that children see

everything in a magnified

way, so it is very fun to be

very expressive.”

Along with Hill and

Davidson, Annie Jo Ermel

provided choreography.

Joel Monaghan provided

technical direction, as did

students, Lily Glaubinger

and Madelyn Lasky.

In addition, all adult

directors gave a round of

applause to the crew and

tech team, comprised of

students who provided

lighting, sound, stage direction

and more, giving

many the opportunity to

participate in much-needed

behind-the-scenes aspects

as well.

Showtimes for “Matilda”

are at 7 p.m. Thursday,

Sept. 26- Saturday, Sept.

28 at Glenbrook North in

the Center for Performing

Arts. Tickets can be found

Ten Ninety opens new kitchen on the fly

Nick Frazier

Contributing Sports Editor

If you want something

done well, you’ve got to do

it yourself.

That’s why Glenview’s

Ten Ninety Brewing Company

recently started serving

food made from scratch

in their own kitchen, a

change owner Brian Schafer

says has been well-received

among North Shore


Ten Ninety was originally

founded in 2012 in Zion

but moved to Glenview

four years later. Schafer,

a former CFO, was determined

to bring the food inhouse.

That meant building

a brand new kitchen, hiring

chefs and trying out new


A brewery first, Schafer

said the company keeps the

flavors of the food in mind

to best accompany the beer.

“A lot of beers that

we’ve brewed in the past

and in the current and the

future, we think about flavor

profiles first and brew

the beer, where a lot of

breweries brew the beer

and think about what food

to pair it with,” Schafer

explained. “A lot of our inspiration

comes from food

when we’re brewing. It’s a

natural progression that we

have the food now.”

Previously, Ten Ninety

was serving traditional bar

food. Now, the restaurant

wants residents to know

they can order food off a

diverse menu to pair with

their favorite pints.

“We want to let people

know that we’re not just a

brewery serving bar food,”

Schafer said. “We have

salmon, we have mussels,

we’ve got different salads.

We still have a mighty tasty

burger, we’re doing pizza,

because we don’t want to

turn our back on some of

the biggest sellers and most

popular foods in the country.

We’re doing it with

unique twists; we incorporate

our beer in every menu


Ten Ninety began rolling

out a food menu a few

months ago on the fly. A

few dishes, like the Ten

Ninety Burger and the Beer

Tachos (tater tots, beer

cheese sauce, crumbled bacon,

and chive with a fried

egg on top) are already fan


There are a few constant

staples in the menu, but

there’s also a lot of experimenting

with dishes to find

the next crowd favorite.

“We’re a brewery, so

we like to experiment,”

Schafer said. “I tell everybody

here, ‘If you’ve got a

good idea and people like

it, we’ll go with it.’ Good

ideas can come from anywhere

at any level in the


The cooks in the kitchen

have free range to come up

with new ideas, and if it

passes the taste test, it will

end up on the menu.

“That gets people excited

about the job,” Schafer

said. “More ownership.

There’s pride because they

know this is what I’m doing,

there’s a little bit of me

going out in every dish.”

A few lucky 22nd Century

Media editors got to

sample a wide range of Ten

Ninety’s new dishes.

We started with the

famed Ten Ninety Burger

($15), which features two

grass-fed beef patties with

sharp American cheese,

cucumber and diced white

onion. The burger is cooked

with Rancorous III, a craft

beer brewed at Ten Ninety.

Next up were the Drunken

Mussels ($15), with

P.E.I. mussels sauteed in

12-6 p.m. Sunday

Juice God, a New Englandstyle

IPA. Included were

spicy chorizo and lemon,

and the appetizer was

served with crostini.

Another popular dish

the 22CM editors tried was

The Roosevelt pizza ($16),

a dish Schafer’s daughter

came up with. The dough

is made with one of Ten

Ninety’s lagers, and The

Roosevelt is a white pizza

made of gouda, caramelized

onions, sauteed mushrooms

and olive oil.

The next dish was the

Buffalo Chicken Sammich

($13), an 8-ounce fried

chicken breast with crumbled

blue cheese, tossed in

MPF Buffalo sauce with

mixed greens and ranch

dressing on the side.

Lastly, we enjoyed the

mixed greens salad ($8),

which featured cherry tomatoes,

cucumber, blue

cheese crumbles, croutons

and the Rancorous III vinaigrette.

The salmon on top

of the salad was a classy


Ten Ninety is now open

seven days a week, and

the taproom hosts trivia

on Thursdays and even offers

bags lessons. Schafer

enjoys getting to show his

creative side at the restaurant.

“I’ve always had that.

It’s something you’ve got

to suppress a little more as a

CFO,” Schafer said. “Coming

into work in shorts and

a T-shirt is pretty nice.”

The seared salmon dinner ($20, here shown as a salad) is a healthy option with a

6-ounce pan-seared salmon filet served on field greens, quinoa and brown rice,

drizzled with a blackberry sharp wit and butter emulsion and finished with fresh

parsley and lemon. Photos by Michal Dwojak/22nd Century Media

Drunken Mussels ($15) are

LEFT: A fan favorite, the Ten

Ninety burger ($15) consists

of two grass-fed hormone/

antibiotic-free beef patties,

Rancorous III dijonnaise,

sharp American cheddar,

house-pickled cucumbers

and diced white onion.

came into today’s regional

action ranked among the

top 10 U.S. players in FI-

BA’s 3x3 world rankings.

Another six players from

the USA’s top 70 were also

on display, including Canyon

Barry of Gator Elite,

who won gold alongside

Hummel at the 2019 FIBA

3-on-3 World Cup and is

the son of NBA Hall of

Famer Rick Barry. The 3X

Regionals are free and open

to the public. Additionally,

games will be streamed on

Twitch at Twitch.tv/NBA.

The players are competing

to accumulate enough

individual FIBA points

with the goal of moving

on to the Red Bull USA

Basketball 3X Nationals

in April 2020, where

24 men’s and 24 women’s

teams will be on display.

From that event, USA

Basketball will select four

players — not necessarily

all from one championship

team — for the men’s and

women’s teams that will

play in Tokyo less than a

year from now, should the

USA qualify, as 3-on-3

makes its Olympic debut.

ticed any arm injuries because of


“In our experience, the different

motion in fast-pitch softball

generally results in far fewer arm

issues than it does in baseball,”

NGSA President Pat Dunbar says

in an email. “We are more likely

to have ‘tired’ arms from too

much pitching or girls that fatigue

from the pressure of pitching versus

actual injuries. This would be

more true of our higher achieving,

travel pitchers.”

Researcher Kristin Thomas

believes part of the reason why

coaches and parents have a hard

time opening their minds to the

research is the culture of softball.

For every player she brought up

who suffered an injury, a coach

would mention a player who never

had any arm trouble.

“I feel like they all know that

one person and the culture of it,

those girls are all pretty tough

and reserved,” Thomas said.

“The girls aren’t saying anything,

they’re in a culture where they’re

not going to.”

Tekip isn’t against following a

pitching limit if that’s what’s recommended,

but he can’t say what

the reception would be among

his fellow softball coaches. Tekip

knows coaches will follow suit

as soon as USA Softball or a top

organization requires coaches to

have pitching limits, just like they

followed the concussion protocol

once its became a mandatory part

of a coach’s training.

If the research is there and it has

long-term benefits to the health of

his players, Tekip is completely

on board.

“To incorporate something like

that into a player safety training

would be mandatory for coaches,

I think would be great.”

Not enough evidence

The Illinois High School Association

didn’t waste any time

instituting a pitching limit in

baseball for the 2017 season

when research from the National

Federation of State High School

(NFHS) came out that high pitching

totals could lead to long-term

arm damage.

But in softball, there hasn’t

been a reason to act.

“The IHSA Softball Advisory

Committee and the IHSA Sports

Medicine Committee have not received

any data that would necessitate

the need for pitch counts for

high school softball in Illinois,”

says Tracie Henry, the IHSA’s

Assistant Executive Director

and softball representative, in an


Henry mentioned the IHSA

reviews the NFHS’ studies locally

and determines whether any

changes should be made.

The NFHS receives its injury

information from an outside organization

that’s in its 13th year

of gathering softball exposure injuries,

a sport that has the lowest

rate compared to all other sports

according to NFHS Director of

Sports Sandy Searcy. In the data

gathered, the organization tracks

the type of injury, how long it

takes to come back from the injury,

what inning the athlete suffered

the injury, what position

they played, how old they are and

what grade they are in. But, the

study doesn’t collect the number

of days, when one pitches and the

numbers of pitches thrown.

“We’ve been conducting the

RIO (High School Sports-Related

Injury Surveillance) survey for

over 10 years and it really hasn’t

been shown to have adverse injuries,

overuse injuries, any trends

that we can focus on or point

to that would indicate that we

should take a closer look at establishing

pitch counts for softball,”

Searcy said. “I think that’s not the

case in baseball ... . In the world

of softball, it just hasn’t shown to

be an issue.”

Searcy admitted the organization

doesn’t study the longterm

effects of pitching in large

amounts, noting that there’s no

mechanism for doing so.

“The injury data we have on

the shoulder and the elbow just

haven’t trended toward increasing

injuries, but what it doesn’t

track those pitchers that are pitching

five games in three days, or

two games in a day, those kinds

of things,” Searcy said.

The NFHS maintains a twoway

relationship with its members

to determine whether some

rule changes should be made

once a new school year begins.

Searcy and her colleagues try to

keep a tab on news around the

country so they can provide its

members with the best injury prevention

methods. When it comes

to softball and arm injuries, they

just haven’t seen much to warrant

an edict.

“We try to keep our thumb on

this so we know what’s going

on out there,” Searcy said. “We

just haven’t seen it. To be honest,

we’re not tracking that criteria.”

Looking ahead

What needs to happen next in

the softball-pitching debate depends

on who you ask.

Researchers believe they’ve

found the genesis of an issue that

needs more investigation while

those who have been around the

sport their entire lives don’t think

there’s a reason why the “natural

motion” belief should be challenged

Youth coaches like Rick Tekip

are open to change but haven’t

seen a reason for that to happen

while newcomers like Kristin

Thomas want to see equality in

the protection of athletes.

“I think what softball needs to

do is what baseball did, which

is put research looking at pitch

counts and looking at it at a bigger

level if these female pitchers

need the same protections given

to male pitchers by limiting pitch

counts,” Thomas said.

It’s the debate Katie Rossmann

has been a part of since

she started playing the sport as

a young girl. She’s now a coach

teaching players how to protect

themselves from injuries by

pitching with proper technique

and following the same icing and

stretching habits she started, but

she also knows limits should be

placed with the addition of including

bigger pitching rotations.

“They shouldn’t throw over

and over again, it’s not healthy,”

Rossmann said.

She’ll do her best to make her

players as lucky as she was.

will be different.

North lost three all-state

players in goaltender Brennan

Nein and defensemen

David Wilcox and Tim

Burke and will not need to

sure up things defensively.

Even though Poulakidas

is confident in the players

that he does have this

season, he wants the entire

team to be more involved.

“It’s not just the defensive

people that we have to

rely on to play defense; it’s

our entire team,” Poulakidas

said. “If we do that as

a unit each time, we can be

as good as we have been in

the past.”

Part of the pressure will

come on to the forwards,

who Poulakidas said is a

deep group. Each player

is going to have to play


From Page 54

Wheeling added a

touchdown in the third

quarter to make the score

50-13. North’s Joe Pollina

then drilled a 35-yard

field goal for the game’s

final score.

Looking ahead

Possibly Glenbrook

North’s toughest opponent

of 2019 awaits in

deeper into the zone, making

sure they take their opponents

all the way down.

Centers will also need to

more cautious in how they

play pucks in the middle

of the rink and not take

as many chances, which

would leave the defensemen

on an island.

The defense does have

returning talent in Evan

Izenstark and Jack Hardesty,

both of who have

shown they have the talent

to compete with the best

while goaltenders Sam Bilis

and Matthew Carr will

bring strong stability in


The more emphasis on

defense also has Poulakidas

looking for more dedicated

play. The head coach

knows his players have

always played hard, but

he wants the challenge of

playing the Spartans to be

too much to overcome.

“Everybody has to be

hard to play against,” Poulakidas

said. “If you’re

not hard to play against,

you’re really not fulfilling

our expectations.”

North will have some

strong offensive balance

this season, with some key

returning players mixing

together with youth. Charlie

Slovin, Matt Dahlke

and Andrew Rubin and are

just some of the talented

players expected to have

a big impact this season

and have helped lead the

group that Poulakidas has

a strong bond. The offseason

workouts were the

best the head coach has

seen during his time with

North, which has him excited

about the future.

The Scholastic Hockey

League will be even more

tough with the addition

of three teams: St. Viator,

Oak Park-River Forest and

Carmel Catholic. North’s

depth should help players

stay fresh in a difficult

conference, one where

Poulakidas hopes changes

will lead his team to reach

its potential.

“They’ve really bought

in to sacrificing for each

other,” “It doesn’t matter

who scores or who gets

credit. They’re really concentrating

on winning as

opposed to individual accolades.

When you do that,

you have a chance to win.”

Week 4.

The Spartans (3-0)

will match up with John

Hersey High School (3-

0), one of the top-ranked

teams in 7A.

The Huskies, fresh off

consecutive nine-win seasons,

have outscored opponents

133-41 this season.

Purdy said the Spartans

will have to focus on

Hersey quarterback Jordan

Hansen, who he described

as a “tremendous

quarterback” and a “Division

1-caliber kid.”

Hersey also features

a receiving group Purdy

called “great” and defense

“They are a force to be

reckoned with,” he said.

Softball’s ‘natural motion’ pitching


Michal Dwojak, Sports Editor

Katie Rossmann considers herself


The Glenbrook South softball

alumna, who played at the University

of Wisconsin-Green Bay,

never had an arm injury, despite

pitching since the age of 5. Other

injuries came and went, but her

arm remained unscathed, no matter

how many times she repeated

her windmill routine.

Rossmann watched teammates

battle injuries after placing an

enormous degree of stress on

their arms while pitching. Some

of her college teammates’ lack of

experience took a toll on Rossmann’s

arm too. She did the majority

of the throwing during her

sophomore and junior seasons,

throwing 94 and 137 innings, respectively,

while the stress grew.

Yet, she never suffered an injury.

“Ice, stretch, repeat” became

her post game ritual until she

graduated in 2018.

Rossmann knows she’s an exception

to the rule.

Many players followed the

same routine and still wound up

with injuries. She tries to instill

the same habits in her youth softball

players as their pitching instructor,

but has found herself in

the middle of a debate that’s been

around since she started playing

the game.

Rossmann, like many amateur

pitchers, played an unlimited

amount thanks to the accepted

theory among softball coaches

and parents that the softball pitching

motion is natural. To many,

her lack of an arm injury wasn’t

the exception to the rule. To

many, she exemplified the rule.

Researchers are calling the

rule into question. Many youth

and high school baseball organizations

placed pitching limits

on their pitchers in recent years,

but softball organizations have

avoided following suit, despite

research across the country suggesting

a limit might be needed.

natural motion. 22nd Century Media File Photo

of her life. Photo courtesy kenyon college athletics

Rossmann feels stuck. Her

experiences led her to believe

limitation is necessary, but she

doesn’t know whether the rule

can be changed.

“Yes it is a natural motion, but

there are a lot of things in it that


No need for concern

Emily Pater never felt a reason

to be worried.

The Northbrook resident and

sophomore at Kenyon College

always did what her coaches

told her when it came to pitching

since she started playing the sport

in third grade.

“I’ve always been told that it

shouldn’t hurt ever unless you’re

doing it wrong because it’s a natural

motion,” Pater said of pitching.

“Where in baseball, just like

throwing overhand, it can wear

your arm out because your shoulder

is moving in a way where it

doesn’t really want to, where

in softball windmill pitching is

much more fluid and natural.”

Researchers are now testing

that assumption of fluidity by

looking at the windmill pitching

style. A study published in the

1998 Journal of Orthopaedic &

Sports Physical Therapy examined

the common belief by studying

the biomechanics of the windmill

pitching style.

The paper’s authors looked at

eight women — six pitched in

college and two pitched for semiprofessional

teams. They examined

how the pitchers warmed

up and usually pitched before 10

trials were collected of the subjects

throwing fastball pitches,

with the pitchers wearing different

markers to measure different

forces placed on their throwing

and non-throwing arms.

The pitchers performed the

same windmill technique nearly

every softball pitcher uses. Each

pitcher started by bringing her

arm back, above shoulder level,

before moving her pitching arm

forward all the way around in a

counterclockwise motion before

releasing the ball once her arm


returned just past her legs. The

researchers measured the torque

placed on different parts of the

throwing arm and compared it to

the data they already had on overhand


They found one of the critical

instances in underhand pitching

was during the delivery or acceleration,

where the forces to resist

distraction at the shoulder and

elbow were the greatest. In contrast,

deceleration is the critical

instance in overhand pitching.

The study questioned the assumption

that underhand pitching

doesn’t create significant stress

on the shoulder and elbow, suggesting

that more investigation

was needed to fully understand

the influence of underhand pitching

on overuse injuries.

Pater’s seen her teammates

battle different arm ailments.

They’ve either thrown too many

pitches or had a flaw in their technique,

which led to tendonitis and

negatively impacted their careers.

Pater became more sore when

she started pitching collegiately

and noticed the toll it took on her

body. College teams feature more

pitchers, but in a week of practices,

younger pitchers still throw

a lot/nearly as much as they did in

high school.

Throughout her softball career,

Pater sometimes pitched five

to six games in a weekend and

threw a majority of the games’

innings each time she took the

mound. She never kept track of

how many pitches she threw and

there was no set rule for taking

any time from pitching in a game.

comes into question by researchers









“Personally, I don’t see pitching

too many innings in a short

time frame negatively impact my

body, but it might have a bad effect

on others,” Pater said.

Pater does think that if a pitching-limit

rule was to be passed

it would be to cap pitching in a

great amount in a small span of

time. She’s noticed from personal

experience how many games a

pitcher can throw in a short span

of time.

“I think it is interesting how

you need one good arm and you

can keep going.”

“Nothing natural about that”

Kristin Thomas will be the first

to say she’s not a softball player,

but the sport’s natural motion debate

caught her attention when

she went through a sports rotation

learning during her medicalschool


She studied about ACL injuries

in her sports book she used during

her education, where there

was a chapter about the injury in

men followed by one about the

injury in women. Thomas went

on to learn about throwing injuries

in men and what didn’t follow

surprised her: There was no

chapter on women.

Thomas started asking around

about the absence and was

shocked by the answer that the

windmill approach is a natural

motion in women.

“I said ‘have you watched

them?’” Thomas said. “There’s

nothing natural about that.”

Thomas decided to conduct a

study to learn more. She and colleagues

studied 50 NCAA Division

I, II and III softball players

from teams and collected pitching

logs from six of the 14 teams.

The researchers categorized the

severity of each pitching injury as

grade 1, an injury without time

lost; grade 2, an injury with time

lost; and grade 3, a season-ending

injury. Of those studied, 20 pitchers

had grade-1 injuries, six had

grade-2 injuries and none had

grade-3 injuries.

She examined the players prior

to the start of the season. Before

the season began, each player had

their range of motion measured

with a goniometer — an instrument

that measures angles — and

shoulder strength measured with

a dynamometer. During the season,

Thomas collected weekly

injury surveys from the players

and pitch logs from the coaches.

At the end of the season, she categorized

the players into injured

and noninjured groups.

Thomas learned the more a

softball player pitches, whether

in practice or in games, the higher

the risk of injury.

She also learned more about

the natural motion belief held

among the softball community.

Coaches didn’t keep track of how

many pitches their pitchers threw

and told Thomas she was wasting

her time when she asked to talk to

players who had no injuries, but

players told her a different story.

“It’s almost like where concussions

used to be,” Thomas said.

“We’re at this place where we’re

asking if these girls are OK to

play and they’re like ‘yeah, im

fine to play, I’m just chowing

down ibuprofen after games.’”

Washington University School

of Medicine in St. Louis Associate

Professor, Orthopaedic

Surgery Matthew Smith was curious

about the debate too. He

conducted a few studies at the

Washington University School

of Medicine in St. Louis to learn

more where he evaluated more

than 100 athletes from ages 14 to

18 and found that 40 percent had

some type of shoulder or arm injury

during the season.

The researchers used a device

called a dynamometer that players

pushed against to give an objective

measurement of strength.

The researchers also asked players

how they felt, how tired they

were and how much pain they

were in. Smith could then correlate

objective measures of

strength and associate those with

how the athletes said they felt.

Smith found that the succession

of games pitchers threw was part

of the reason for their injuries.

Pitchers experienced more shoulder

pain, fatigue and weakness as

they pitched in more games, especially

in weekend tournaments.

Both Smith and Thomas agreed

there needs to be more research

into the matter. Their studies

didn’t have enough evidence to

make any formal conclusions, but

both agreed that pitching limits

need to be looked into.

“The challenge is just getting

people aware that this is not a benign

movement for the shoulder,

and if more people are aware that

it’s not benign, the more likely

they are to pay attention to not

overthrow these kids,” Smith


Thomas noticed the common

argument against a pitching limit

was that many coaches knew

of players like Pater and Rossmann:

those who never suffered

any shoulder injury during their

softball career. There also isn’t

as much interest into the topic

because a major organization

doesn’t have a vested interest in

softball like Major League Baseball

does with baseball, Thomas


For Smith and Thomas,the solution

is simple: more research.

“Counting pitches in practices,

in games and we would be able

to debunk the theory ....” Thomas

said. “If it’s not, then it’s great

and they’ve been doing it right all


Coach’s concern

Rick Tekip has his players’

health at the top of his mind at all


“Every time out,” the Glenview

Titans Fastpitch President

said. “Every time I field a team.

Every time I start a lineup.”

He, like many softball coaches,

doesn’t have pitching counts at the

top of his mind. New cell phone

applications like GameChanger

keep track of every softball stat

imaginable, including pitching

counts, but Tekip doesn’t pay

attention to that stat mid-game,

sometimes not even after a game.

The coach hasn’t had a reason

to pay attention to the stat. He’s

never had a player suffer an arm

injury from pitching that he is

aware of, but he has watched inexperienced

coaches overwork

their pitchers, which led to a lower

velocity late in the season.

He has a pitching staff of

seven to eight pitchers but uses

four or five. There’s isn’t a specific

science to how he decides

who pitches when — sometimes

he just starts the pitcher who’s

thrown well — but he does want

to make sure his pitchers are

rested and icing their arms after


“We also don’t want to overwork

anyone to the point where

they’re going to injure themselves,

get a dead arm or take

away the opportunity for others

to get a shot too,” Tekip said.

“We don’t do an equal number of

innings and pitches, but I try to

be as judicious as I can be with

everybody’s opportunities, being

mindful that this is a travel program

and we’re looking for the

team result.”

Coaches from the Northbrook

Girls Softball Association

(NGSA) also haven’t seen many

pitching-related injuries, but do

have pitching restrictions in their

recreational league. Each pitcher

can only pitch two innings during

a game for different reasons: To

give more girls a chance to pitch,

to balance out team competitiveness

and to ensure that the girls

aren’t overused.

Coaches from the NGSA declined

to be interviewed for this

article, but did write through

email their coaches haven’t no-

GBN routs Wheeling behind Ciss’s historic performance


Senior breaks

three program

records during

6-touchdown night

Martin Carlino, Editor

Mike Ciss never imagined

a record-breaking

night from the running

back position was a possibility.

After preseason injuries

in Glenbrook North’s

backfield forced him to

shift from the defensive

side of the ball to the

team’s primary running

back, Ciss entered the

year with modest expectations.

But in just his thirdcareer

game at the position,

the senior delivered

a night for the history


The 6-foot, 170-pound

captain scored a schoolrecord

six rushing touchdowns

in GBN’s 53-13

win over the Wheeling

Wildcats on Friday, Sept.

13, in Wheeling. In total,

Ciss broke three program

records during the win:

points scored in one game

(36), rushing touchdowns

(6) and total touchdowns


“He was on fire,” head

coach Matt Purdy said.

“He ran the ball really,

really well. … He’s been

tremendous for us. His

vision on the field is just

really improving each


“I’m so proud of him.

He takes such great care

of his linemen, he’s such

How it happened

The Spartans’ defense

forced a three-and-out

from Wheeling to open

the game.

After a blocked punt

attempt, North started its

first drive of the game inside

Wheeling’s red zone.

GBN scored on just two

plays when Ciss rushed in

a 3-yard score, giving the

Spartans an early 7-0 lead.

The Wildcats’ next

drive shuttered after six

plays and one first down.

Senior captain Quinn

Sybert sacked Wheeling’s

quarterback on fourthand-two,

forcing a turnover

on downs.

The Spartans again

scored two plays later

when Ciss rushed home

an 8-yard score, his second

of the night.

North started its next

drive at its own 29-yard

line after a three-and-out

from Wheeling.

Ciss broke free on the

drive’s second play for a

68-yard touchdown run

that gave North a 21-0

lead over the Wildcats.

Ciss scored his fourth

TD of the night on North’s

next drive via a 50-yard

run. The Spartans ended

the first quarter with 28

points, their highest total

for any quarter this season.

Glenbrook North players

and coaches are starting

to see some progress in

their young season.

After starting the 1-3-1,

head coach Paul Vignocchi

has seen his player develop,

winning their next

two games against Grayslake

Central and Vernon


“They’re coming together

as a team, which

is good,” Vignocchi said.

“The New Trier tournament

prepares you for making

mistakes and things like

that and fixing those.”

One major priority for

the Spartans this season

has been focusing on defense,

which his players

have. They are moving

to the ball better now and

stopping their opponents

from creating different

Game of the Week:

• Loyola (2-1) at Mount Carmel (3-0)

Other matchups:

• Conant (3-0) at New Trier (1-2)

• Prospect (3-0) at Highland Park (1-2)

• Hersey (3-0) at Glenbrook North (3-0)

• Lake Zurich (1-2) at Lake Forest (2-1)

• Barrington (2-1) at Glenbrook South (0-3)

• Warren (3-0) at Libertyville (1-2)


One of the reasons for

the solid play by the defense

has been the play

of senior goalkeeper Nick

Washelesky, who’s helped

solidify things on the defensive


“He’s very calm, he’s

good with his feet, he’s

done a nice job providing

some experience in the

back for us,” Vignocchi


Part of that has been

thanks to some shakeups.

Players no longer know

what the starting lineup

will be for each game until

after they’re done going

through warmups. Vignocchi

and his staff want to

see how his players compete

during practice and

warmups and wants to put

his best players out there.
