Purple Heart Charity Run makes NL debut

2

Sean Hastings, Editor

The rumblings of 40-

plus motorcycles was all

that was heard just after

10:30 a.m. on Saturday,

Oct. 5, as the group of

riders left the American

Legion and went down

Cedar Road to start the

Purple Heart Charity Run.

Bikes began lining up

as early as 9 a.m. at the

Thomas E. Hartung American

Legion Post 1977.

The run was a 100-mile

ride around the area, making

stops at other American

Legions including

Morris, Plainfield, Yorkville

and Lockport before

heading back to the New

Lenox Legion for an after

party.

The stops were used as

a chance for the riders to

stretch out their legs and

chat with Legion members

of those locations.

Brian Kloss helped put

together the ride as it was

hosted by the American

Legion Riders.

“We decided to have

the motorcycle run as a

way to raise funds for the

American Legion Riders’

donation to the Wounded

Warriors in Action Foundation

that our post supports,”

Kloss said.

Kloss started the riders

group three years ago as a

way to get veterans to join

the American Legion family

so that they have more

support for their veterans

in any capacity they need

it.

“Getting everybody together

to ride as a family

to raise funds for that is

what we stand for,” Kloss

said.

Although it was an

American Legion event

and many of the riders

were members, a good

amount of people who

rode, were just regular

motorcycle riders.

And it was little things

like that made the run

a little more special for

Kloss and the rest of the

riders.

“In the past, it seemed

like it was mostly veterans

that were helping veterans,”

Kloss said. “With

the more awareness that

we have today, for different

veteran issues whether

it’s homelessness, PTSD,

more and more non-military

personnel are coming

out to support that.

“That means everything

to the veterans that have

been fighting so long to

support our own.”

Saturday’s weather for

the ride was not bad, but it

also was not great. The ride

beat the rain that rolled in

that evening since the ride

concluded at 4 p.m., but

there was a constant crisp,

cool breeze, giving a first

real taste of fall.

Kloss wanted to have

the ride a little earlier in

the year to catch the end

of summer, but the after

party was meant to be in

the pavilion and it was the

only day they could book

it. So Oct. 5 it was. Riders

were treated to live music

from the HiTones in the

bar — as the rain began to

come down that evening,

pushing the party inside.

It was the first time the

Legion had the ride and

Kloss plans on it being an

annual event — hopefully

growing each year.

“We’re going to be doing

this every year for the

foreseeable future,” Kloss

Bikers lined up as early as 9 a.m. on the cool fall morning to get ready for the Purple

Heart Charity Run on Saturday, Oct. 5. Sean hastings/22nd century media

said.

Some of the riders did

not make the entire 100-

mile trip, but a majority of

the riders stayed on their

bikes the entire time.

After the ride, it was all

smiles for Kloss and the

rest of the riders and Kloss

believed they were able to

raise a good amount of

money.

Adults savor German-inspired beers, children enjoy other activities at Octoberfest

2

Kyle LaHucik

Freelance Reporter

Seasonal brews, southern

rock and small animals

were just some of the many

offerings at the Village of

New Lenox Octoberfest on

Saturday, Oct. 5, in the Villages

Commons.

For couples Cindy and

John Laitar and Heather

and Marc Morale, this

wasn’t their first taste of

German drinking festivities.

A week prior, 4,540

miles away, the couples engaged

in the rich traditions

of the original Oktoberfest

in Munich, Germany.

“They build a carnival,

but it’s like a full-size

amusement park,” John

said, as the couple sipped

on their seasonal taps from

local Hickory Creek Brewing

Company, which sold

out in less than two hours

into the event. Gary Meyer,

owner of the brewery, said

he’d never been to the original

fest in Germany, but

would love to go some day.

The two couples toured

the historic city of Munich,

ate their way through a

dumpling tour, celebrated

two or three days at the

festival and enjoyed the

sights.

The Laitar’s roots aren’t

Germanic, but the 25-

year New Lenox residents

wanted to dress for the

occasion, so they donned

the traditional garb of Oktoberfest.

For Cindy, that

meant a dirndl, and for

John, that entailed a Lederhosen.

The adult-friendly beverages

were just a small

part of the overall event,

though. Children rode ponies,

people of all ages

posed for photographs with

ducks and goats in the petting

zoo, children got their

faces painted for spooky

Posing for a photo are (left to right) Connor Morale; John and Cindy Laitar; Heather, Marc and Marc Morale. The

two couples traveled to Munich, Germany, for the original Oktoberfest before returning home to try local brews at

the New Lenox Octoberfest on Saturday, Oct. 5. PHOTOS BY Kyle LaHucik/22nd Century Media

season and others carved

pumpkins.

“When we started it

three years ago, there was

kind of a lack of events in

the fall here in the Commons,”

events coordinator

Beth Alderson said.

“We try to give it some

elements of a traditional

Oktoberfest with the polka

music and whatnot but still

a little bit more accessible.

So we know we’re not

sticking to the true roots,

but hopefully it’s fun for

everybody that way.”

The jovial nature of the

event led some attendees to

give back to the community

by buying bowls of soup

to support the New Lenox

Food Pantry.

The New Lenox Community

Park District and

Friends of the Parks hosted

an “Empty Bowls,” an international

project that is

run independently by local

groups to benefit charity.

“We’re really excited

that we can give back to

the community in a different

way,” recreation supervisor

Becky Tilton said.

The event included nine

varieties of soups — including

minestrone, chicken

and rice, pasta e fagioli

— donated by local businesses.

People purchased

colorful ceramic bowls

made by kids in various

Parks District programs

for $15 and were able to

get as many helpings as

they wished. The ticket

sales will go toward helping

stock the shelves of the

Food Pantry, Tilton said.

“It actually brings everyone

— businesses, families,

the park district — all

together, so that’s why

we’re really happy to put

on the event this year.”

Like the event’s first

two years, rain eventually

sprinkled down on the

400-plus festivalgoers, but

many stuck it out for the

main musical act of the afternoon,

Mercury Blonde.

Minutes before Lincoln-

Way Central grad Tyler

Peck and his bandmates

took the stage, at least 14

strollers could be seen

spread across the Commons

lawn, with blankets

and camping chairs

populating the remaining

patches of grass. Fans savored

frozen yogurt from a

TCBY truck and munched

on bratwursts and an assortment

of other snacks

from the concession stand.

“I’m really excited to

be back in my hometown

and just kind of give New

Lenox a little taste of Nashville,”

Peck said moments

before rocking out on the

drums. “[I] hope everyone

has a good time and enjoys

some southern rock.”

Melanie VanderVliet, 3, of New Lenox, has her face painted as Minnie Mouse.

The Arc supports

Trinity Services in

New Lenox

Carly Styka, Editorial Intern

Although they are an

often-overlooked population,

the disabled have an

ally in the Arc of Illinois.

The Illinois branch of The

Arc, a national organization

that advocates for and

assists the disabled, has

moved headquarters. Previously

located in Frankfort,

The Arc of Illinois formally

moved to an office building

in Mokena on Sept. 24.

Meg Cooch, executive

director of The Arc of Illinois,

said the move to

9980 190th St. Suite C was

motivated by a need for a

change of space. The location

in Mokena is more affordable

and is a better fit

overall for the office staff.

The Arc needed a different

configuration of space.

“Most of our staff live

in the southwest suburbs,

so we wanted to stay in the

space,” Cooch said.

Eleven other employees

are spread across the state,

she said. The new office

will be used for administration

and training on how

to advocate for oneself and

others.

Although the branch

serves the entire state, The

Arc is open to local visits

and participates in local

events. People are welcome

to stop by and learn about

their programs, Cooch said.

The Arc has been operating

in Illinois since the

1950s. It was formed by

local groups of parents who

wanted the best for their

disabled children. It has

grown over the years into a

statewide organization that

fights for the fair treatment

and rights of people with

developmental disabilities.

The Arc offers many

programs in support of the

disabled.

“We provide information

and resources for families

and support people to go to

trainings,” Cooch said.

Caring for a disabled

person can be difficult for a

family to do by themselves.

The Family Support Network,

a program of Arc,

helps to keep families together

by reducing the need

of outside facilities. They

give families the support

to enable them to meet the

needs of the disabled person.

Other Arc programs

keep disabled people and

their families involved with

their community and keep

them informed on key issues,

such as healthcare.

Funded through donations,

the Assistive Technology

Fund provides devices

such as iPads, tablets

and laptops to disabled

persons to assist them with

learning and their daily activities.

This program will

fund the purchase of a device

if insurance refuses to

cover it. According to the

Arc of Illinois’ website,

these devices help with

education, community involvement

and communication.

The Arc works with and

supports other organizations,

such as Trinity Services

in New Lenox, aimed

toward assisting disabled

persons. Trinity offers

support services and wellbeing

programs, such as

horse-riding therapy, to the

disabled of Illinois.

“Trinity is one of the

leaders in improving services

for the disabled,”

Cooch said.

As a member organization

of the Arc of Illinois,

Trinity has presented at

numerous Arc conferences

and events for the disabled.

“These events are for

families, caregivers, guardians

and individuals with

disabilities to help explain

community options, including

benefits, housing,

day services, respite and

home-based services,” said

Tina Fogarty, chief operating

officer of Trinity. “It is

a collaborative effort with

many community-based organizations

and providers.”

The Arc of Illinois and

Trinity are both member

organizations of They

Deserve More Coalition.

This group fights for living

wages for caretakers

of the disabled. It aims to

promote legislation to raise

wages for caregivers so that

the disabled can receive the

care they need.

The Arc awarded Trinity

staff members for providing

care and case management

services to people

with disabilities, said Meredith

Dobes, head of communication

and media development

at Trinity.

The Arc, in partnership

with Trinity, has had great

success in pushing for

legislation in favor of the

disabled. Events such as

trainings and webinars help

teach families to advocate

for themselves before the

state government to ensure

their voices are heard.

“Trinity staff members

and families regularly act

with other members of The

Arc to advocate for people

with disabilities by filing

witness slips, contacting

legislators and spreading

messaging about policy issues

that impact people with

disabilities,” Dobes said.

In July, the Arc of Illinois

and Trinity helped to

pass Senate Bill 2424 during

Illinois’ 100th General

Assembly, which amended

the Developmental Disability

and Mental Disability

Services Act, Dobes said.

Public Act 100-0924 created

better home care facilities

to decrease the risk

of disabled persons with

significant behavioral challenges

being sent to stateoperated

facilities. These

community-based homes

are currently being funded

by Illinois, according to

Dobes.

The Arc of Illinois and

Trinity continue to push for

legislation and hold conferences

to educate the disabled

and their loved ones

about their options. As they

continue to do so, the disabled

will continue to have

a voice.

OMG It’s Gluten Free continues its growth

Sean Hastings, Editor

Melanie Helfrich (left), of New Lenox, and OMG founder

Julie Scianni pose for a photo. Photo Submitted

OMG It’s Gluten Free,

based out of Frankfort, has

served the gluten-free community

for 10 years.

It started out as a cafe,

but has since developed

into a food manufacturing

company that serves people

nationwide. OMG has

its own online portal that

people can order from, but

also do business with Sysco

Chicago, which stores

their brownies, buns and

bread crumbs and supplies

their products nationwide

to different businesses.

Their products are in

different hospitals, restaurants,

hotels, senior care

centers, schools, event

venues and some airports.

But getting into all of the

airports is OMG’s next big

push, said Melanie Helfrich,

of New Lenox.

Helfrich is a part owner

and the sales manager.

OMG also stocks the

gluten free bread for Turano,

Alpha and Gonella.

“We always get feedback

that it tastes like regular

bread,” Helfrich said

OMG’s founder is Julie

Scianna, who found out

later in her life that she was

gluten intolerant and that

her four children were as

well.

What’s going to help

OMG make its next jump

to being in all of the airports

is having earned its

Airport Concessions Disadvantaged

Business Enterprise,

Safe Quality Food

and Disadvantaged Business

Enterprise certifications.

ACDBE and DBE are

similar in that they both

help to level the playing

field for small businesses

that wish to participate in

contracting opportunities at

airports.

Helfrich said airports

need to buy a certain percentage

of their food from

a DBE-certified business,

which OMG now is.

“Having a speciality gluten

free item that is needed

especially in the airports,

because you can’t find

anything like that and for

them to be able to mark off

that percentage of product

that they have to buy and

get gluten free items in, it

makes it a win-win for us

and them.”

And having that speciality

item gives them that

advantage because parents

can find easier ways to get

their gluten-intolerant child

to eat, rather than paying

$18 for a bunless burger

and one piece of lettuce,

Scianni said.

“It’s becoming more of a

necessity,” she said.

OMG also recently got

another account with United

Airlines and it will be

carrying OMG’s 2 ounce

blueberry muffin and a 2

ounce dinner roll for all of

their flights domestic and

international.

And with OMG’s big

growth, especially in the

last few years, it will hit $1

million in 2019 and likely

get to $1.4 million before

the year ends, Scianni said.

The thought of that

brought tears to Scianni’s

eyes.

“We are going to hit a

million dollars,” Scianni

said. “I get chills just saying

it. I was crying to my

dad. No one thought we’d

get here. It’s very exciting.

Once you cross that

number, that is what is so

exciting, once you hit it, we

should do two-and-a-half

next year.”

Helfrich joined the team

three years ago. The two

have known each other for

as long as OMG has been

around, but when Scianni

needed a sales manager,

she turned to her longtime

friend.

Scianni said she could

not have been able to get

this growth without Helfrich.

She said they were

doing well, but became

stagnant about seven years

in.

And the one who helped

get the SQF certification

was Glenn Zagon, OMG

food safety manager. And

Andrew Hebda is the executive

chef.

Scianni and Helfrich

both hope to continue to

expand the business and be

able to retire in a few years,

while staying on the road

selling their products.

sweeter.

In addition to the already

announced slate of prizes,

Culver’s in Orland Park has

We will pick just one

NLPD collecting coats for

its 11th annual coat drive

Submitted by the New

Lenox Police Department

New Lenox Police Chief

Bob Sterba and the New

Lenox Police Department

were excited to announce

the department’s 11th annual

coat drive. Since

2009, the police department’s

“Cops Care” coat

drive has collected over

16,000 coats which have

gone to help the Lincoln

Way area community.

With the active participation

of New Lenox

School District 122, the

police department will be

leading an effort to impress

upon the youth of the

community the value of

demonstrating good character

and helping others.

The coat drive allows for

residents to donate gently

used coats and utilizes a

voucher system to allow

anyone in need to receive

a coat, free of charge.

D122 students and families

are encouraged to donate

at their schools, while

the general public are asked

to donate at either the New

Lenox Village Hall located,

1 Veterans Parkway or the

New Lenox Police Department,

200 Veterans Parkway.

All coat collection

points will have vouchers

to be handed out to those in

need and vouchers will also

be available at the New

Lenox Township Office at

1100 S. Cedar Rd.

Vouchers can be redeemed

at Morning Star

Treasure Chest II, 2571

E. Lincoln Highway.

They will provide a coat,

free of charge, for anyone

who presents them with a

voucher. Vouchers will be

available for the duration

of the coat drive.

The coat drive commenced

on Sept. 30 and

concludes on Friday, Oct.

25.

Locals join for fish fry, donate

toward military care packages

Lee Cruz, Freelance Reporter

As usual, seating in the

dining area was nearly

filled to capacity, there was

a steady stream of patrons

stopping by for pick-up orders,

and there was plenty

of lively chatter throughout

the weekly fish fry at the

Harry E. Anderson VFW

Post 9545 in New Lenox

on Friday, Oct. 4.

An added bonus to the

dinner was the drawing

of the winners for the organization’s

annual raffle

conducted to help support

troops serving overseas.

The raffle was coordinated

by VFW Auxiliary

member Joe Pinkul, as

Auxiliary members sold

an accumulation of 300

raffle tickets both onsite at

its facility and in the local

community over the past

several weeks.

Monetary prizes of

$2,000, $1,000, $750, and

$250 were awarded to the

winners, and the remaining

$2,000 of funds raised

through the raffle will be

used to help furnish contents

for care packages for

troops working abroad.

The VFW will use those

proceeds to purchase everyday

hygienic products

and dry food snacks, and

it will collect additional

items donated through its

food drive at Jewel in New

Lenox on Saturday, Oct.

19.

Auxiliary members will

prepare the care packages

for delivery to a platoon

of 120 men, including one

soldier from New Lenox, in

time for the holiday season.

The Auxiliary actively

strives to improve the lives

of veterans, active-duty

service members, and their

families, and it serves as

the main channel for VFW

volunteer efforts.

The raffle fundraiser reflected

that in action, and

Auxiliary President Linda

Paschall is grateful for the

group’s efforts with it. She

feels that the care packages

are much more than the

tangible products that they

contain, as they contribute

to boosting morale for

troops who are geographically

separated far from

loved ones.

“They know that people

back home are there to take

care of them and that somebody

is always thinking

about them. And when they

come back home, they give

us flags they flew overseas

and various tokens of appreciation

to express their

gratitude for our efforts,”

she said.

Shoppers spend morning sifting through Community Rummage Sale

Kyle LaHucik

Freelance Reporter

Twister, Goofy Golf

Machine and shelves full

of children’s books lined

the front steps of the New

Lenox Public Library the

morning of Sept. 29. An

overnight downpour that

lasted well into the morning

didn’t put a damper on the

thrift shopping of dozens

of families and local residents

who showed up to the

Friends of the New Lenox

Public Library’s Community

Rummage Sale.

In front of the library

steps and scattered along

the New Lenox Commons,

approximately

seven groups set up tents

to sell items ranging from

Halloween costumes to

random knick-knacks to

APRIL BLAIR

• Lifelong resident of the

LincolnWay area

old children’s toys to used

tools.

The event, originally

sold out at 120 booths and

was scheduled for Sept.

28, benefitted the Friends’

mission to support special

programs at the library.

Janice Schwarz, a volunteer

member of the

Friends, said the group has

helped fund library projects

such as the Digital

Media Lab over the years.

“Things that our tax

dollars might not be able

to stretch all the way to,

that’s what we attempt to

pay for,” Schwarz said.

She’s been involved

with the organization over

the years because of her

devotion to the library.

“You see how much the

library does for the community

— it reaches out

to everyone in the community

regardless of race

or religion,” Schwarz said.

“It does the most to help

people.”

Shoppers could choose

from items like air fryers

to wooden mantel clocks

to ring toss to two tables

full of baby clothing.

One family returned this

year to sell a hodgepodge

of items collected over the

years. Amanda Rudofski,

of New Lenox, and her

two daughters, Laney and

Alyssa, along with their

grandmother, Dawn Stevenson,

set up two tents to

sell the daughters’ childhood

toys and an assortment

of other items.

Despite the rain, Rudofski

said they were

• Full time realtor since 1992

• Remodeling & staging

experience

• Competitive commission rates

• Professional photography

included with all listings

Amanda Rudofski (right) and her daughters Laney (second from right), Alyssa and the

girls’ grandmother Dawn Stevenson sell the girls’ childhood toys and an assortment

of other items. The family has sold at the Friend’s of the New Lenox Public Library’s

Community Rummage sale the last few years. Kyle LaHucik/22nd century media

having their best year

yet at the rummage sale

due to the low volume of

vendors. The family has

participated in youth programs

at the library the

past few years and enjoys

the atmosphere of the sale,

Rudofski said.

“Last year this entire

Commons was full of

people, it was a lot of fun,”

New Lenox Public Library

Director Michelle Krooswyk

said. “It’s just unfortunate

with the weather. It’s

not every day you get seven

inches of rain in 12 hours.”

Krooswyk said the library

appreciates the work

of the Friends, which is all

volunteer-based.

“They do this because

they love and support the

library,” she said.

In unrelated news, the

library’s bonds will be

paid off in December for

its building, which was the

first edifice on the Commons

in 2001.

“That’s our one and only

debt,” Krooswyk said.

“We actually paid it off

early due to summary financing

a few years back.”

Later this month, the

Friends of the Library is

sponsoring the 18th hole

of the library’s Ghouls and

Golf fundraiser. On Oct.

27, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.,

the library will turn into

a two-story, 18-hole miniature

golf course. Local

businesses will sponsor the

holes and the festivities will

include trick-or-treating.

Locals given history lesson by the

New Lenox Area Historical Society

Lee Cruz, Freelance Reporter

At the New Lenox Area

Historical Society meeting

on Thursday, Oct. 4, local

historian Dave Rubner was

on hand to present about

aspects of the Harlow Niles

Higinbotham Era.

Higinbotham was born

in New Lenox in 1838, and

he was an influential leader

who had a profound impact

on major efforts that affected

citizens both locally and

nationally.

Higinbotham served with

the Quartermaster Corps

of the Union Army during

the Civil War, eventually

elevating to the role

of Captain. His skills set

and mannerisms caught

the attention of General

Montgomery Cunningham

Meigs, who even referred

him for a meeting held between

President Abraham

Lincoln, General Ulysses

Grant, and Congressman

Elihu Washburne to discuss

strategies for ending the

war.

Higinbotham was always

a strong advocate for

Lincoln in his approach to

the war. When journalists

questioned Lincoln’s leadership

because they felt the

war was drawing out too

long and that there seemed

no victory in sight, Higinbotham

retorted in his personal

memoirs that Lincoln

was competent in his role

and firm in his efforts to

end the conflict.

Shortly following his service

in the Civil War, Higinbotham

worked as a bookkeeper

with retailer Field &

Leiter, which would eventually

evolve into Marshall

Field & Company. During

his tenure there, the Great

Chicago Fire of 1871 occurred.

Although the store’s

building was destroyed,

Higinbotham was insistent

on immediately filing insurance

claims and getting the

business operating in a new

location within a few days

to start recovering losses. It

was some of his swift maneuvering

that enabled the

company to rebound quickly,

while many other businesses

lost significant revenue

due to their delay in

restarting their operations.

The expertise he demonstrated

with the company

would eventually earn him

a role as a business partner

with Marshall Field.

One of Higinbotham’s

most noteworthy accomplishments

was his service

as president of the World’s

Columbian Exposition

of 1893 held in Chicago.

Many local leaders initially

were grateful and encouraged

that Chicago was selected

as the host site for the

event, but soon afterward

there was widespread fear

that organizing it would

be a daunting task and an

unprofitable venture, especially

since the country

was ensconced in a state of

financial panic at the time.

Higinbotham was not a

part of the original planning

committee, which struggled

considerably through

the early phases of the project.

When Higinbotham

was asked to take over the

reigns, Marshall Field was

even hesitant about granting

his blessing, concerned

that it would reflect negatively

on the company if

the event was a failure.

Nevertheless, through tireless

and skillful planning

3

and negotiations, Higinbotham

was able to produce

an event that drew much

larger crowds than most

expected and that was far

more profitable than most

investors anticipated.

Rubner noted that Higinbotham’s

intellect in accounting

allowed him to

keep a balanced book and

to manage money wisely,

but it was his personality

and his tenacity that made

him so influential and successful

in his endeavors.

“He was a gentleman, he

was respected, and he got

things done,” Rubner said.

“He was self-driven, so he

didn’t wait for someone

to tell him what to do. He

could bring together people

with opposing viewpoints

and get them to work together

to accomplish something

big.”

Although Higinbotham

resided most of his adult

life in Chicago, he invested

in land in New Lenox

and other portions of Will

County, with properties that

included a mansion and

what is now Pilcher Park.

He mostly used some of

those sites for retreats with

other local wealthy businessman.

Rubner stated

that Higinbotham at least

still maintained some connection

to the area, perhaps

because of the positive direction

he gained in his

early years there.

In December, Rubner

will release seven pamphlets,

with a total of 44

stories, on various facets of

history, including features

about Higinbotham, the

Civil War, the 20th Century,

railroads, and pioneer days

in the New Lenox area.

Find out what a service dog means to a vet

Sean Hastings

sean@newlenoxpatriot.com

If I did not already

have a few events to

cover myself on Saturday,

Oct. 5, I would have

been covering the K9s

for Veterans event where

six veterans officially received

their service dogs.

I covered one in April

and it was one of the most

heartwarming events I’ve

covered, let alone attended.

Think about how

much you love your dog

and the excitement you

and the pup have when

you walk in the door.

Now multiply that by

10. The excitement on

those dogs’ faces and the

smiles of the veterans

when they see their dogs

run into the room, are

unmatched. I’m speaking

from my experience, but I

know that Saturday’s was

much of the same.

You can read that story

on page 23.

For some veterans, the

dogs truly saved their

lives, for others as simple

as it may seem, the dogs

help them get out of bed

every morning. I love to

sleep in, so if my dogs

come knocking at my

door — literally, they both

paw at/punch my door —

it’s a little annoying, I’ll

admit. And if they do get

in, jump in my bed and

lick me to no end, that is

another issue.

I don’t get mad because

I love my dogs,

but it’s like “come on. I

just wanted another 20

minutes.”

Having heard some stories

from these veterans

who suffer from PTSD

and struggle to wake up

and start their day, those

licks and jumps into

bed is really what they

need. That’s something I

couldn’t ever imagine.

That relationship is

truly special.

Michael Tellerino,

the founder of K9s for

Veterans, said that without

these dogs, a lot of the

first responders and veterans

would never go into

a crowded public place,

even if that place was one

like the event on Saturday

where everyone in attendance

was there to see and

support them.

Whether it’s a night

terror, inability to sleep,

not wanting to wake up

and start the day, those

four-legged furry friends

make all of that possible

and help them get back

to living as “normal” as

possible.

I encourage everyone

to at least research it, or

if there is an event going

on check it out and try to

learn a little more about

what some of these people

go through and what a

service dog can mean to

them.

beautiful Great Dane rescue. During the

conversation, I was asked if this is the

turned out to share their

concerns that annexation of

the gas station would lead

liquor and video gaming

FROM THE LOCKPORT LEGEND

Chamber luncheon helps

small business in Lockport

grow

With an aim to help small

business owners in the city,

the Lockport Chamber of

Commerce organized an

informative session as part

of its luncheon Sept. 25

with members of the U.S.

Small Business Administration.

“Since I took charge, I

wanted to reinstate some

programs that started to slip

away,” said Annette Parker,

executive director at the

Lockport Chamber. “One

of those programs was

our chamber luncheons. I

started looking for topics

and speakers that have a direct

impact on businesses. I

have done some work in the

past with the Small Business

Administration and,

since the Lockport Chamber

has so many small business

owners as members, I

thought the SBA would be

a great topic of interest.

The presentation by

Phyllis Shelton, economic

development specialist at

SBA Illinois, focused on

programs and services, including

counseling, access

to capital and contracting.

“I enjoyed speaking to

the Lockport Chamber,”

Shelton said. “It was a great

experience. The attendees

were excited to learn about

the SBA’s programs that

can help them start and

not measured by the number

of breaths we take, but

by the number of moments

that take our breath away.”

I like how this quote

captures, what I believe is

resident within each of us,

the innate human desire for

a meaningful life.

This past Spring I wrote

a column in The New

Lenox Patriot introducing

the release of my book,

STAY: Four Pillars For

Living Life and Finishing

Well. The book details my

19 years as a chaplain at

our local community hospice.

To say that the book

has met my expectations

would be an understatement.

Allow me to explain.

First, I continue to be

surprised whenever someone

says to me, “I ordered

your book.” To think that

someone would order and

read something I wrote is

humbling, to say the least.

Second, my expectations

were far exceeded by both

the written and verbal

responses I have received

as people have shared with

me how the book helped

them. One teenager wrote,

“Your book really opened

my eyes and inspired me

to be more humble and

sensitive to life.” A mother,

who recently experienced

the death of her adult child,

wrote, “To fill the void I

sat and read your book…

it reminded me of how precious

time is.”

I can honestly say that

as I was writing the book

I could not have imaged

how the anecdotal stories

of the people I have met

under hospice care could

speak in such a profound

way. The responses have

far exceeded my expectations

that I had for the

book.

Yet, when I think about

it, I should not be surprised.

This is, after all,

one reason why I wrote

the book. I wrote in the

preface that those finishing

their lives are an often underutilized

perspective for

those of us still living ours.

We can learn from this

seldom-tapped resource-if

we are willing to come

under their tutelage.

Life really can exceed

our expectations, if, we

are willing to take the time

to consider just how good

life is. When is the last

time we made the effort to

watch a sunrise or sunset?

How long has it been since

we looked upon a sleeping

son, daughter, or spouse

and considered the blessing

of human relationship?

When is the last time we

considered the gifts of

sight, sound, smell, touch

and taste?

Perhaps before the end

of this day, we can take a

moment and consider how

life, with all of its blessings

and burdens, really

does exceed our expectations.

Here is to a life well

lived.

Meet Jim at his book signing

on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 11

a.m.-1 p.m. at the New Lenox

Public Library. Books will

be available. The public is

New Lenox students jam at School of Rock lock-in

Carly Styka, Editorial Intern

Kids Music Day went

out with a bang at the

School of Rock in Mokena

on Oct. 4. Drums,

guitars, keyboards and

vocal chords were turned

up to the max as children

jammed into the late hours

of the night.

Each year, the School of

Rock celebrates children

having access to music

instruction by holding a

lock-in open to the public.

“The day is meant to

bring awareness to music,

the arts and things

that aren’t being taught as

much in schools as they

used to be,” said Mokena

resident Mark Doyle, owner

of the School of Rock.

“We try to get kids more

involved with music.”

It certainly seems to

have caught the children’s

attention. This was the

school’s fourth lock-in,

which drew the biggest

crowd. Around 60 children

crammed into the tight

practice rooms, compared

to 20 in previous years,

Doyle said.

The night was filled with

games and jam sessions.

Pinatas were destroyed

and kickball was played.

The children played to

their heart’s desire on the

many instruments available.

Before the younger children

were sent home at 10

p.m., the instructors decided

to form a drum circle.

Everyone grabbed an instrument

and a chorus of

drumming ensued. Smiles

formed on the children’

faces as they all shared a

moment together through

music.

The school, which

opened in 2011, has impacted

the lives of many

aspiring rockers.

Piano and vocal student

Miranda Tyda, of New

Lenox, described how the

school has impacted her

life and challenged her in

her music training.

“I’ve made a lot of

friends here that I never

thought I could, and I also

have a boyfriend that goes

here,” Tyda said.

The lessons and experience

of performing have

helped Tyda become more

confident in her musical

abilities. She said she

wants to stay with the

school for as long as she

can and even form a band.

“It has definitely boosted

my confidence,” Tyda

said. “I wasn’t able to sing

in front of as many people

but became more used to

performing with every

show I did.”

Nathan Perisin, of

Frankfort, has grown as a

person and formed meaningful

relationships from

his time as a guitar student.

Despite his initial reluctance

to start performing,

his mom pushed him to

stick with the school and

he has played there for five

years. He still talks to students

he performed with

on his first day.

“I used to be a pretty shy

person. I wouldn’t really

talk to anyone before,”

Perisin said. “The school

brings out the better in

people.”

The main focus of the

school’s curriculum are

performances. In addition

to a weekly lesson,

students perform together

to solidify the skills they

learn in the practice room.

Getting children out of

their comfort zone and

developing their performance

skills makes this

school stand out from other

music programs.

“We teach music by putting

the kids on stage,”

Doyle said. “As soon as

they’re ready, we try to

get them on stage and performing.

When the kids

have that kind of motivation

and peer pressure,

they tend to learn faster

and better.”

The school has a show

band that consists of the

top players at the school.

The band performs at venues

in the suburbs and at

various local events.

With the school being

part of a franchise, students

have access to different

learning materials

at all skill levels. Other

tools, such as apps and

curriculum, are provided

to students to fast-track

their learning. There are

over 200 locations across

the globe.

Grace Justic, of Frankfort,

a vocal instructor, described

the different events

the students perform at.

“The students perform at

a local venue and all their

friends and family get to

come,” Justic said. “Each

one has a different theme.”

Justic became involved

with the school after taking

lessons when she was

12. She became an instructor

during her senior year

of high school and plans

to continue teaching there

until she graduates from

college.

“I love the environment

and being able to bond

with all the kids,” Justic

said. “All the kids are

so unique and talented in

their own ways, so it’s super

cool to be in an environment

like this.”

This close-knit feeling

between instructors and

students is one of the reasons

why students feel so

connected to the school

and find confidence in

their musical abilities.

“The instructors know

how to push you,” Perisin

said. “They know when

it’s too much because they

have a connection with the

students.”

Part of what attracts students

to the school is the

freedom to play however

they want. They aren’t restricted

to a certain instrument

or a specific playing

style. It’s a more relaxed

atmosphere.

“The school gives you

a choice,” said Perisin. “A

high school band drives

you away from an instrument.

This place makes

you embrace it.”

In addition to touching

the lives of students, the

school also leaves a lasting

impact on the workers.

Doyle said he loves being

a part of the school and

working with the students.

“From day one, this

has never felt like a job,”

Doyle said. “I get to talk to

kids about music all day.”

Veterans presented with K9 companions by local organization

Rochelle McAuliffe

Freelance Reporter

“You will never walk

alone.” For some, the statement

is a testament of faith,

and for others it’s a lesson

about friendship. But for a

group of local veterans, that

statement is the beginning

of a new chapter of life with

a four-legged companion

by their side.

On Saturday, Oct. 5, six

veterans from across the

state were formally presented

with service dogs,

thanks to K9s for Veterans.

The presentation was

hosted by American Legion

Post 1977 in New Lenox.

The goal of K9s for Veterans

is to help veterans and

first responders with PTSD

transition back into civilian

life after service with

the help of trained service

dogs.

“Our veterans come

home with a wound you

can’t see, and it’s a slippery

slope every day for these

veterans,” said Michael

Tellerino, founder and CEO

of K9s for Veterans. “When

we present these veterans

with their service dogs, we

want to give them a night

to remember and the night

they should have gotten

when they came home.”

When a veteran is suffering

from PTSD, a service

dog can be a game changer

in a number of ways, Tellerino

said.

“When a vet has PTSD,

they wouldn’t even walk

into a crowded room like

this, and if they did, they

would find the most secluded

corner closest to the exit.

With a dog by their side,

they can walk into a room

and everybody’s looking at

their dog, rather than them,”

Tangie gives her dad, Kelly Sparrow, an Army SSG, a

giant kiss after being presented.

Rochelle McAuliffe/22nd Century Media

Tellerino explained. “They

wouldn’t think about talking

to someone, but it’s a lot

easier to have a conversation

when someone comes

up to tell you how cute your

dog is.”

The dogs are provided

to veterans completely free

of costs, and medical care

and food are provided as

well. When dogs are paired

to their veterans, the dog

begins “basic training,”

leaning standard commands

and recalls, but as

the relationship grows, the

training does as well. The

group also enjoys outings

to places like museums and

the Morton Arboretum to

prepare dogs for an average

day with their veterans.

Hazel Nobel, an Army E5

Promotable, has spent much

of her life dedicated to service.

After joining Rush’s

Road Home program for

veteran mental health, she

was referred to K9s for Vets

to see if a service dog could

aide her even more in her

journey. After meeting shih

tzu named Nutter Butter,

her road to recovery began

with a new friend next to

her, and tonight’s presentation

is paving the road for

their journey together.

“When I’m anxious, my

dog is there to calm me

down. I can be out in public

again, and he’s allowed me

to relearn how to navigate

my life. It’s truly a blessing,”

Nobel said.

For Kelly Sparrow, an

Army Infantry SSG, a spinal

surgery during a tour of

duty left him with a blood

clot, and sitting on the sidelines

is what affected him

the most.

“I saw my brothers out

there, and I saw all of the

action I was missing. I was

bothered because I couldn’t

finish what I started,” Sparrow

said.

Dealing with PTSD has

been a daily battle for Sparrow,

but since being paired

with an American pit bull

terrier named Tangie over

the summer, Sparrow began

taking steps back toward independence.

“My kids are getting older

and they’re more independent,

so with Tangie, I

have a new purpose. I have

something to get me out of

bed,” Sparrow said. “I have

my buddy with me all the

time. I never have to walk

alone again.”

Quick Bites

Tailgate time: A look at the area’s most interesting game-day options

Staff Report

Fact: It’s almost impossible

to truly enjoy a sporting

event without at least a

little snack or something to

drink.

And whether fans are

going out or having friends

over for the big game, the

southwest suburbs offer

no shortage of interesting

options. What follows are

a few of the area’s biggest

attention-grabbers this

football season.

Totchos: The un-nachos

Stoney Point Grill, 19031

Old LaGrange Road in

Mokena

What would happen if

potatoes and nachos got

together and had a love

child? It might end up being

something akin to totchos,

Stoney Point Grill’s

take on two beloved tailgate

appetizers.

Totchos replace the triangular

tortillas with tater

tots, then smother them

in sour cream, bacon bits,

provolone cheese, garlic

and taco seasoning,

all served in a skillet for

an easy, shareable snacking

during a Bears game,

where customers can order

the Frankensteinian creation

for $8.

Gameday specials include

Miller buckets, boneless

wings, pull pork potato

skins, Buffalo chicken nachos

and an assortment of

drinks.

The Bomber: A unique take on

the cheese dog

Bailey’s Bar & Grill, 17731

Oak Park Ave. in Tinley

Park

Most Chicago-area folks

are always game to indulge

in a Chicago-style hot dog.

But most probably have

not had The Bomber, which

is sure to take taste buds to

a whole new dimension.

The hot dog is by no

means ordinary.

Owner Tamir Bailey said

customers certainly cannot

find it anywhere else, because

it was concocted nine

years ago in their kitchen.

“This is our creation,”

she said.

The Bomber is sliced

down the middle and filled

with American cheese,

then wrapped in bacon and

deep-fried. Tomato, onion,

relish, sport peppers and

cucumber complete the hot

dog.

“It’s pretty filling,”

Tamir said. “You have

just one, and then you’re

good.”

The meal is $6 and

comes with a side of fries.

On Sundays when the

Bears play, the hotdog by

itself is $3.50.

Ribs: St. Louis-style

Bear Down Barbecue,

20857 South LaGrange

Road in Frankfort

Frankfort’s Bear Down

Barbecue has two main

claims to fame: the Chicago

Bears memorabilia

lining its walls and the St.

Louis-style spare ribs that

earned it a spot on WGN-

TV’s “Chicago’s Best

BBQ” list in 2017.

Owner Rashid Riggins

said the restaurant only purchases

premium ribs and

seasons them with a special

dry rub blend before they

go into the smoker. A live

fire grill gets the meat “nice

and crispy on the outside,

while completely tender on

the inside,” he said.

Diners have the option to

have the ribs slathered with

the restaurant’s signature

barbecue sauce, or just dry

rub with the sauce on the

side.

“The rub definitely has

sweetness to it, because of

the brown sugar, but it’s a

very complex flavor, and it

has 21 different seasonings

and spices in it,” Riggins

said.

Loaded Bloody Mary: A noon

starter

Coom’s Corner Sports

Grill in 1225 E. 9th St. in

Lockport

The bold Loaded Bloody

Mary at Coom’s Corner

Sports Grill is designed to

incite passionate reactions.

Priced at just $6, the concoction

is prepared from

scratch, with tomato juice

and the restaurant’s special

homemade spices, along

with pickles, olives, sausage

and cheese on a stick,

as well as a generous sprinkling

of celery salt along

the rim.

This vodka-based cocktail

has a kick and, according

to owner Candy

McWilliams, it pairs well

with any of the items on the

menu, especially a burger.

“It’s not your typical,

out-of-the-jar Bloody

Mary mix,” McWilliams

said. “It is bold and unlike

anything you will find at

another bar.”

Sundays are dedicated to

the Loaded Bloody Mary,

and it attracts a large tailgate

crowd.

“We sell a lot of these

on the weekends, especially

when guests come in

to watch the games,” she

said. “This drink is not for

those who don’t like spicy

things, but if you want

something hardy with a

strong flavor, it meets all

the requirements.”

Datta, Assistant Editor

Beer: Taking it to-go

Arrowhead Ales Brewing

Company, 2101 Calistoga

Drive in New Lenox

Few things go together

better than football and

beer. And if the game day

festivities are taking place

at home, Arrowhead Ales

Brewing Company has a

variety of to-go beer options

to take care of game

day needs.

Arrowhead sells

64-ounce growlers and

32-ounce crowlers, and

16-ounce four-pack cans to

take home. Growlers and

crowlers can be filled with

any beer on tap, though

four-pack availability varies.

“Growlers and crowlers

are great for getting a good

amount of beer in bulk for

sharing with a group,” Arrowhead

owner Mike Bacon

said. “Four packs are

great for trying a few different

options.”

Bacon said Odessa, a

Mexican Lager that is easy

to drink, is Arrowhead’s

“perfect football beer.”

Game-day gathering

Pelican Harry’s Sports

Grill, 14807 Founders

Crossing in Homer Glen

One place that pulls out

all the stops for Sunday

games is Pelican Harry’s

The Totchos at Stoney Point Grill in Mokena combine

potatoes and the concept of nachos, and can be

purchased on game days for $8. T.J. Kremer III/22nd

Century Media

Sports Grill.

The Homer Glen bar and

eatery features the likes

of a free halftime buffet, a

Bears jersey giveaway and

Sunday specials to keep

fans of the Monsters of the

Midway happy.

For Pelican Harry’s coowners

Jim Dobek and

John Hoffenkamp, it is a

football season tradition

spanning more than a decade.

As for the jerseys, patrons

may be surprised

when they come in for a

game, with some of them

autographed.

And for ravenous fans

wanting a bite outside of

halftime, the Sunday specials

include tacos; domestic

pitchers, pints and buckets;

and Bloody Marys.

Pizza in the parking lot? The

ultimate party

Wooden Paddle, 212

Stephen St. in Lemont

There is nothing wrong

with ordering pizza to feed

the party. But what if that

pizza instead was being

made in a wood-fired oven,

at the party, and it did not

require any effort or further

cleanup?

Well, Wooden Paddle

— which started in Orland

Park before its move

to Lemont — has made a

name for itself in the mobile

pizza oven business.

And while it would be a

first, the business is not opposed

to the idea of catering

a tailgate.

“Jon’s a huge Bears fan,”

co-owner Brianna Cowan

said of her husband. “We

haven’t catered a game

before — we usually do

weddings — but we’d definitely

be up for it.”

Provided money is no

object for the game-day

festivities, of course.

Movies have taught us

you can’t put a price tag on

the biggest party of the season.

But Wooden Paddle

can.

And the oven and effort

will cost fans a $1,500 food

and beverage minimum,

$395 for setup, 10 percent

for sales tax and another 15

percent for gratuity on nonwedding

weekends.

1037 Prayer /

Novena

Prayer to the Blessed Virgin

Oh, most beautiful flower of

Mt. Carmel, fruitful vine,

splendor of Heaven, Blessed

Mother of the Son of God,

Immaculate Virgin, assist me

in my necessity. Oh, Star of

the Sea, help me and show me,

herein you are my mother. Oh,

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

Queen of Heaven and Earth!

I humbly beseech you from

the bottom of my heart to succor

me in this necessity. There

are none that can withstand

your power. Oh show me

herein you are my mother. Oh

Mary, conceived without sin,

pray for us who have recourse

to thee (3x). Holy Mother, I

place this cause in your hands

(3x). Holy Spirit, you who

solve all problems, light of all

roads so that I can attain my

goal. You who gave me the divine

gift to forgive and forget

all evil against me and that in

all instances in my life you are

with me. I want in this short

prayer to thank you for all

things as you confirm once

again that I never want to be

separated from you in

Eternal Glory. Thank you for

your mercy toward me and

mine. The person must say this

prayer 3 consecutive days.

After 3 days, the request will

be granted. This prayer must

be published after the favor is

granted.

A Novena Prayer to St. Jude

O holy St. Jude, apostle and

martyr, great in virtue, rich in

miracle, near kinsman to Jesus

Christ, faithful intercessor of

all who invoked your special

patronage in time of need. To

you I have recourse from the

depth of my heart, and humbly

beg great power to come to my

assistance. Help me in my present

and most urgent petition.

(Make Your Request)

In return I promise to make

your name known and cause

your name to be invoked. St.

Jude, pray for us and all who

invoked thy aid. Amen.

Pray this 9 times a day for 9

consecutive days. On the

eighth day your prayers will

be answered for this prayer

has never known to fail. Please

don’t forget St. Jude once your

wish is granted.

Miron’s moment: Junior wins SWSC Red

title as Knights make it five in a row

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

5

Lincoln-Way Central’s

Sydney Miron turned in a

solid performance at last

season’s SouthWest Suburban

Red tournament,

finishing fifth.

The Knights were

so loaded, though, that

Miron’s score was also

fifth on her own team and

didn’t even factor into the

team standings.

2019 is a new era for

Central, however, and

Miron had her chance to

shine on Oct. 3. The junior’s

five-over 77 was

four shots better than the

rest of the field as she captured

the SouthWest Suburban

Red individual title

at The Sanctuary.

“It feels really great,”

Miron said. “Honestly, I

wasn’t expecting it. But I

think I’ve put in a lot of

hard work and I’ve improved

a lot with my mental

game. I’m taking it one

shot at a time and I think

that’s one of the reasons I

had success.”

The Knights (334) rolled

to their fifth straight conference

title, finishing 41

shots ahead of runner-up

Lincoln-Way West (375).

Andrew (379), Stagg (432)

and Bradley-Bourbonnais

(477) rounded out the

field.

Central’s Carly Schiene

(3rd, 83), Caitlyn Parrish

(5th, 86), Maddie Pyle

(6th, 88), Claire Dubois

(7th, 89) and Sophie Bruozas

(8th, 93) all earned All-

Conference honors.

Joining them were

West’s Kaitlyn Valiska

(4th, 85), Allison Hullinger

(9th, 93) and Grace

Ruhnke (10th, 94).

Lincoln-Way Central’s girls golf team celebrates with

its SouthWest Suburban Red championship trophy and

banner Oct. 3 at The Sanctuary in New Lenox.

STEVE MILLAR/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

Central coach Brian

Shannon has seen several

of his players step up to

lead the team at different

times this season. Miron

took her turn this time.

“It’s nice when you

don’t have to just rely

on one or two people,”

Shannon said. “We have

a solid group of kids who

are willing to step up and

say, ‘OK, today it’s me.’

I just hope that continues

because you’re not guaranteed

another tournament

starting with the next one.”

The Knights are set

to compete in the Class

2A Andrew Regional on

Thursday, Oct. 10 at Odyssey

in Tinley Park.

The past two years,

Miron watched teammates

Bri Bolden and Grace Curran

dominate the conference

and contend for state

titles. Bolden is now playing

at Missouri and Curran

at Minnesota.

“I’m really great friends

with them and they were

kind of mentors for me,

great people to look up

to,” Miron said. “So, this

kind of feels cool to follow

in their footsteps and win

this.

“The biggest thing for

me now is having confidence

in my abilities. I was

really consistent and didn’t

have any blowup holes or

anything.”

Schiene, who said she

felt ‘OK’ about her upand-down

round in tough

conditions on a waterlogged

course, is looking

forward to the postseason

as the Knights try to get

back to state after finishing

third last year.

“I feel good about where

we are as a team,” she said.

“I’m excited to see what

the postseason holds and

see how far we can go.”

Valiska is also anxious

to see how West performs

at the Normal Regional on

Thursday, Oct. 10. She was

able to take some positives

away from her conference

performance.

“There was water all

over the holes, the sand

traps were tough, and the

greens were fast,” she said.

“So, it was a challenge. I

didn’t have the best score,

but I did OK. I’m really

excited to go to regionals

with my team and hopefully

we can all do really

well.”

Curran wins second straight SWSC Red title, leads Knights to crown

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

After a summer spent

playing in some of the

country’s top amateur

tournaments, Lincoln-Way

Central junior Sean Curran

knows what it feels like to

hit the course for a major

event.

Curran gets that same

feeling when the high

school postseason starts.

This is the stretch of the

year he most looks forward

to.

“I like the postseason a

lot,” Curran said. “Conference

is always a nice

warmup for regionals.”

Curran, the 2018 Class

3A state runner-up, got his

2019 postseason off to a

strong start as he ran away

with the SouthWest Suburban

Red individual title on

Oct. 1 at Balmoral Woods

in Crete.

Curran, a Clemson recruit,

fired a one-under 71

to finish five shots ahead

of teammate Nick Tingley

and Lincoln-Way West’s

Zack Phelps.

The Knights won the

team title with a 307, edging

Lincoln-Way West

(313). The two New Lenox

schools were far ahead of

the rest of field: Andrew

(366), Stagg (371) and

Bradley-Bourbonnais

(372).

“It was fun to win and

have the team win, too,”

Curran said. “Hopefully

we can keep it rolling into

regionals as a team. We’re

excited. It was good to get

on this course and get a

feel for it. If we put up a

score like this, we should

be good at regionals.”

It’s the fourth conference

title in five years for the

Knights, after the Warriors

won the crown last year.

Central teammates

Juney Bai and T.J. Edmier

tied for seventh, both

shooting 80, to round out

the Knights’ scorers.

Curran said the key for

him was limiting mistakes.

I don’t think I did anything

great,” he said. “I

played the par fives well,

I think I was three under

on those. Just a couple

bad shots – four-putted 13,

went out of bounds on one.

But other than that, it was

just solid.

“I feel prepared. I need

to continue to get better.

The weather will probably

be changing soon so I need

to get ready for that and

move forward.”

The Knights and Warriors

were both set to compete

in the Class 3A Homewood-Flossmoor

Regional

on Monday, Oct. 7, back at

Balmoral Woods.

Tingley’s strong showing

at the conference tournament

gave him a boost

headed into regionals.

“I was pretty happy,” he

said. “Any time you can

step up for your team in

these scenarios at the end

of the year, that’s big.

“I just played pretty

smart, kept it in play. That’s

all you have to do when

you get to the postseason,

play smart and keep battling.

A few birdies helped.

You just have to stay away

from big numbers. That’s

always the key.”

The Knights are hoping

for a big postseason after

they fell two shots shy of

advancing to sectionals

last year.

“We’re pretty excited,”

Tingley said. “This is a

special group and we’re all

confident in each other’s

abilities. If we can put up a

number and just keep moving

on, that’s the goal.”

That’s also the goal for

West, which got consistent

scores across its lineup as

Jason Lange, Aidan Healy

and Ethan Healy all tied

for fourth at 79.

The Warriors won a

regional title last year.

Phelps is looking to lead

the way this postseason.

“I thought I played

pretty decent [at the conference

tournament], but

toward the end I started

falling off a bit,” he said.

“You just have to keep focused

the whole way.

“I played my irons well

and my putting was good.

My chipping was a little

off, but that’s part of the

game.”

Providence tunes up for regionals with solid Catholic League showing

RANDY WHALEN

Freelance Repoter

The Providence boys

golf team has not won the

Chicago Catholic League

championship since 2014.

The Celtics didn’t win

it this season either. But

that’s OK, they have bigger

things to look forward

to in the next two weeks.

Sophomore Drew

Brasky shot a four-over

76 and tied for eighth with

three other individuals to

receive All-Conference

honors for the Celtics.

Junior teammate Davis

Billows finished a stroke

behind and Providence

placed sixth overall with

a score of 320 Oct. 2 on

Course No. 3 at Cog Hill

Country Club in Lemont.

“You can shoot the best

round of your life at conference

and all you would

get is a pat on the back,”

Providence coach John

Platt said. “But if you do

that in the regional or the

sectional, that’s where you

move on.”

Loyola won the conference

title with a 288. The

Ramblers had the top two

individuals in junior Patrick

Adler (70) and senior

Sam Maylee (71) and had

five All-Conference performers.

The CCL title for the

Ramblers was their seventh

since the league reinstated

the tourney in 2009.

Providence has won three

(2009, 2011, 2014) and

Fenwick (2017) one in that

time.

This season, Fenwick

(302) was second, followed

by St. Ignatius

(307), Marmion (313),

Brother Rice (317) and

Providence (320). St. Rita

(337), Mount Carmel

(344), Montini (346), St.

Laurence (361), and De La

Salle (422) completed the

field.

“For the first five holes

the rain was coming

down,” Platt said. “Then

the last few holes we had

a mist again. Plus on [par

4] hole 18, the four carded

scores that count were a

combined five-over on that

hole. Our last few tournaments

we had been playing

better, but if we would

have had guys par the last

hole it would have taken

off four to eight strokes.

“We should advance out

of [the Class 2A Lemont

regional on Monday, Oct.

7 at Cog Hill Course No.

1], but it’s the sectional

that will be tough. That’s

hosted by Hinsdale South

[on Monday, Oct. 14] at

Prairie Bluff Public Golf

Course [in Lockport] and

there’s six or seven teams

that have a chance to advance

out of there.”

Senior Ryan Hilty shot

an 83 for the Celtics, while

junior Michael Blake and

senior Trevor Vandenberg

both fired 84.

“The last hole was playing

hard today,” Brasky

said. “Plus it was rough

[with the rain] in the beginning

but it got a little

better. I made three or four

birdies but I also missed

6

some others. I hit the ball

bad but scrambled for a 76.

“The team hasn’t been

to state in a few years and

Davis [Billows] and I really

want to go this season.”

Providence hasn’t been

to state as a team since

capping a run of six trips

in eight years in 2016. Although

they move to Class

2A this season, it’s not going

to be easy.

“There’s seven teams

that could advance out

of the sectional to state,”

Billows said. “So it’s just

a matter of the team coming

together, and we really

want it.”

10 Questions

with Zack Phelps

3

Youth Sports

Junior Warriors donate to

New Lenox Food Pantry

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

Zack Phelps is a junior on

the Lincoln-Way West golf

team.

How long have you

been golfing and how

did you get started?

I’ve been golfing, honestly,

since I could walk.

My grandpa and my dad

really got me into it when I

was young.

Your brother, Collin,

was on the golf team

at West and graduated

this past spring. Did

you and him grow up

golfing together?

Yeah, we grew up golfing

a lot together and it

was very competitive because

we’re brothers and

we always wanted to beat

each other.

What do you like most

about the sport of

golf?

I like the pace of it and

how it’s by myself. I’m

alone on the course and I

can sort of think out there.

You guys had a great

season last year

but lost some senior

leadership, including

your brother. What’s

it been like for you

stepping into that role

this year?

It’s been good. If we

play like we did [in the

SouthWest Suburban Red

Tournament, finishing second],

we’ll be good. It’s

been different, though. My

brother took that leadership

role last year and I

took action after he left.

I still ask him questions

throughout the year, and

he’s given me good advice.

What advice does he

give you?

He tells me to be a part

of a team. If someone is

playing bad, just try to

keep their heads up.

Who is in your dream

foursome to play golf

with?

I’d go with Bubba Watson,

Brooks Koepka and

Justin Thomas to play with

me. Bubba has been my

favorite player since I was

young because he’s a lefty

like me and I’ve always

looked up to him. Justin

Thomas, I just like how he

plays. Brooks Koepka is

just something else. He’s

a tank. He’s a great player.

If you could be

anybody else for a

Steve Millar/22nd Century Media

day, who would you

want to be?

Honestly, I’d like to be

my brother, Collin. He’s a

big role model in my life

and I really look up to him.

You’re stranded on a

deserted island and

can have an endless

supply of one food.

What do you pick?

I’d have to say apples.

Red apples. It’s a great

snack. I always eat them

while I’m playing. They’re

good for you. I just love

apples.

If they were making a

movie about your life,

who should play you?

Bill Murray. He’s a funny

guy.

What is your favorite

TV show?

“How I Met Your Mother.”

It’s just a funny show

overall.

Up next: The Celtics will take on DePaul Prep (2-4) at noon

Saturday, Oct. 12 at Chicago Academy. DePaul has not defeated

a non-Chicago Public League school since 2015.

For 24 minutes, the

Providence Catholic football

team matched St. Rita

step for step.

But after two injuries to

key Providence starters to

start the second half Friday,

Oct. 4, the Mustangs

were able to capitalize en

route to a 22-0 Catholic

League/ESCC Green victory.

The Celtics injuries

were to starting quarterback

Kevin Conway

and defensive back Max

Pignotti – the latter of

whom required assistance

from paramedics.

“It was definitely different,”

Providence coach

Mark Coglianese said of

the second half troubles.

“Those are both the leaders

on both sides of the

ball for us. That’s not an

excuse. [St. Rita] played

well, and [Mustangs running

back Kaleb Brown]

ran hard. He was definitely

the difference.”

After being held to just

31 yards in the first half,

Brown exploded in the

second half to end the day

with 149 yards on 23 carries

and two touchdowns –

the first of which came two

plays after the Pignotti injury.

Brown took a handoff

and sprinted 35 yards for

the score with 8:37 left in

the third quarter. The Mustangs

(3-3, 1-1) missed

the extra point attempt but

took the 6-0 lead.

Then, after the Mustangs

got on the board again

with a 24-yard field goal,

Brown effectively iced the

game with a 9-yard touchdown

run with 4:55 left in

the fourth quarter to make

it 16-0.

Kyle James – who also

had two interceptions in

the game for the Mustangs

– added on a late score

with a 25-yard touchdown

run. The Mustangs missed

the extra point again, capping

the scoring at 22-0.

Offensively, the Celtics

(4-2, 0-2) couldn’t muster

much in the second half

after Conway (3-of-8 passing,

25 yards, interception)

left the game with a leg

injury.

“Kevin hurt something

right before the half,” Coglianese

said. “He came

out in the second half and

didn’t feel right. He got

it checked out. We’re not

sure exactly, but it [might

be] some type of sprain.

We’ll have to see.”

But overall, Celtics

quarterbacks threw three

interceptions, leading to

tough field position all

game for the defense.

“Defense kept answering

the bell, but field position

was just horrible all night

– both halves,” Coglianese

said. “It wasn’t just one

half, but [it was] especially

in the second half. Then

you’re a little bit behind

on the scoreboard, and

now you’re backed up and

you’ve got a backup quarterback

in. We just couldn’t

answer that.

“I think we just mentally

and physically got

wore down late in that

third quarter and the fourth

quarter. A lot of our linemen

go both ways, which

traditionally we don’t do.

But, unfortunately, we

have to, and it started to

wear on them a little bit.”

Up next for the Celtics is

DePaul Prep at noon Saturday,

Oct. 12 at Chicago

Academy.

“Our goals are still

there,” Coglianese said.

“We’re not going to be

able to win conference,

but I told them we’ve

We’ve just got to heal up

a little bit. It’s going to be

I don’t know about Max.

But some guys are going

to have to step up. We’re

back to work.”

Doran impresses, but Knights routed by rival Griffins

5

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

After its playoff hopes

were almost certainly

dashed in a span of three

weeks which featured three

losses by a total of eight

points, Lincoln-Way Central

is searching for bright

spots and reasons to be excited

about the future.

Junior quarterback Turner

Doran provided a little

of both in his first start

Friday, Oct. 4. Although

the host Knights never

found the end zone in a

38-2 loss to Lincoln-Way

East, Doran showed some

glimpses of his throwing

abilities against the ferocious

Griffins defense.

Doran finished 11-of-22

passing for 115 yards, including

a 51-yard toss to

Charlie Graefen (7 catches,

77 yards).

“Turner had some really

good throws,” Central

coach Jeremy Cordell

said. “For his first varsity

start, he did really well. He

made some nice passes. He

threw the one interception

but even that wasn’t a horrible

throw. I was proud of

his poise and the way he

came out and played.”

The Griffins, though,

had an impressive inexperienced

quarterback of

their own.

Ty Slager, a senior, completed

seven of 10 passes

for 100 yards and two

touchdowns in his second

start.

“It boosted my confidence

a lot and the whole

team’s confidence being

able to drive the ball like

that,” he said. “Whatever

coach needs me to do, I’m

ready to do it, and this

week was just throw the

ball a little more. I think

the whole team delivered.”

The victory over the

Lincoln-Way East’s Jamal Johnson is tackled by Lincoln-Way Central’s Vinnie

Zarlengo during the Griffins’ 38-2 win Friday, Oct. 4. JULIE MCMANN/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

Knights (1-5) assures East

(6-0) will play in the postseason

for the 19th time in

the program’s 19-year history.

Slager threw the ball into

a tight window to find senior

Sam Paliga for a 20-

yard touchdown pass that

put the Griffins up 17-0

just 30 seconds into the

second quarter.

His second touchdown

throw was a bit easier as

Michigan recruit AJ Henning

got open in the middle

of the field for an 18-yard

score in the third, upping

the lead to 31-0.

“In space, [Henning] is

a great playmaker,” Slager

said. “He’s just your go-to

guy and when things break

down, you’ve always got

AJ.”

Henning caught four

passes for 44 yards and

ran six times for 35 yards,

including a 22-yard touchdown

run which capped

the first-half scoring and

put the Griffins up 24-0.

Slager, meanwhile,

seems to be settling in.

“We had a quarterback

battle in the summer,” East

coach Rob Zvonar said.

“We knew Ty was capable

of doing very well. Now

that he’s getting the firstteam

reps in practice, he’s

getting better every day.

He’s getting more comfortable.

We’re very proud of

him.”

Zvonar said he and his

staff wanted to give Slager

more throwing opportunities

against Central.

“I think [against H-F]

the game dictated mostly

to run the ball,” he said. “I

think [against Central], we

knew we had an opportunity

to get Ty some connections.

He made some

big-time throws.

“With the other guys

we have, our quarterback

doesn’t necessarily have

to be a huge playmaker,

but when we get into tough

games, we’re going to

need to know we can make

some throws. So, giving

him a chance to do that was

definitely part of the plan.”

Cordell broke out some

tricks to try to keep his

team in the game, including

opening the contest

with an onside kick.

East recovered at the

Knights’ 46-yard line,

though, and needed just

five plays to get on the

board on a 1-yard touchdown

run from Jamal

Johnson.

Johnson ran for 100

yards on just eight carries,

including a 45-yard run to

set up Henning’s touchdown

run.

Connor Kubik added a

22-yard touchdown run for

the Griffins.

The East defense, meanwhile,

held Central to just

three rushing yards and

139 yards overall.

The Griffins forced the

Knights into nine plays for

negative yardage.

Among the many defensive

heroes were senior

linebacker Jack Kramer

(sack, two tackles for loss),

and Clark Dilger

“We had a rough week in

McLaughlin said. “This

lot more free, and we just

pinned our ears back and

went for it.

“Each game, we raise

our confidence with each

other. This week was especially

big. We knew the

guy next to us was going

to make a play. It could

be Kramer, who’s one of

the best linebackers in the

state or Adrian [Wilson]

on the other side, we know

they’re going to lock it

After they were stopped

on fourth down at the East

forced a safety on the next

play to break the shutout

with 6:47 to go in the

game.

Several Knights defenders

were in on the play, led

by Luke Juricek.

Braeden Barrett and TJ

Hincks each had a sack for

the Knights. Jack Duvall

had an interception.

“I’m proud of everyone

rallying around each other,”

Cordell said. “Obviously,

we were playing a

really good team and there

were some positives in

the process, even though

you’re never happy losing.”

Knights make it 12 in a row with OT win over LW West

4

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

Putting together a long

winning streak requires

a team to pull out tough

games, make the clutch

plays late and win even

when not everything is

clicking.

Lincoln-Way Central

has done all that over the

last five weeks.

After starting the season

0-2, the Knights have not

lost since Aug. 31.

“It’s been great,” senior

forward Nick Willner said.

“We didn’t play too good

in a few of those games,

but we still found a way to

win. Keeping the ball out

of our net has been a big

reason, too. Our defense

has been playing amazing.”

Willner has certainly

been amazing in his own

right. He continued his

huge season by scoring

both of the Knights’ goals,

including the game-winner

in overtime, as Central

pulled out a 2-1 SouthWest

Suburban Red win over

crosstown rival Lincoln-

Way West on Saturday,

Oct. 5.

In the golden-goal format,

the Knights (12-2,

2-0) came up with the winning

moment in the final

minute of the first overtime.

Junior Evan Pagliaro

tracked the ball down near

midfield and played a pass

ahead to Willner.

Willner, who was double

and triple-teamed by

the Warriors (7-8, 0-1) for

much of the day, found

a way to get open as he

broke away from a defender,

collected the pass

and broke in alone on West

goalkeeper Chris Zavala.

Willner chipped a shot

over Zavala’s head and

Senior Nick Willner scored both of the Knights’ goals,

including the game-winner in overtime, in a 2-1 victory

over Lincoln-Way West. 22ND CENTURY MEDIA FILE PHOTO

into the top of the net to

end the game.

“I saw the ball coming

in and I just knew I had to

get to it and get to the net.

I just dribbled in and hit it

over his head.

“It felt great. It was a

very stressful game. I had

two or three players marking

me the whole game. I

was just happy to find the

net when I could.”

Central coach Sean Fahey

was proud of Willner

for overcoming the tough

defense from the Warriors.

“[West junior defender]

Carson Cox did a great job

with Nick,” Fahey said.

“He’s a tough kid, strong,

and he beat him to the spot

sometimes. They were donating

a few defenders to

Nick at times.

“It’s good for Nick to

have to work through a

game like that, because

that’s how it’s going to be

going forward.”

Willner also scored in

the first half to put the

Knights ahead before junior

Aaron Ronaldson answered

for West in the final

minute of the first half.

West coach Matt Laude

was happy to see his team

get some momentum heading

into the second half,

but knew how difficult it

was going to be to hold

Central down.

“We knew they were

offensively explosive,”

he said. “We knew we

couldn’t sit back and let

them attack for 80 minutes.

We had to attack as

well.”

Zavala and Central’s

Adam Kedzior both had

strong games in goal,

keeping the game tied 1-1

through the end of regulation.

In the end, the Knights

– who found out last week

they are the No. 2 seed in

the Class 3A Lincoln-Way

East Sectional – kept their

streak going.

“Our back line has been

great all year,” Fahey said.

“We have eight shutouts.

[Kedzior] has made some

big saves. We try not to

call on him too often, but

when we have, he’s been

there. That’s the only way

you end up with a streak

like this is people picking

up the pieces for each other.

That’s why this group is

special.”

West is the No. 8 seed in

the Lincoln-Way East Sectional.

“I think we’re a very

tough eight seed,” Laude

said. “I’m excited about

it.”

LW West scores often early in rout of Stagg

SEAN HASTINGS, Editor

Lincoln-Way West

scored 34 points before the

clock dipped below nine

minutes remaining in the

second quarter.

Just two plays and 43

seconds into the game, senior

running back Caleb

Marconi broke off a 41-

yard touchdown run and

just over two minutes and

one play later, Marconi

broke off an 18-yard score.

West’s offense rolled

from that point on to a

34-7 win at Stagg on Friday,

Oct. 5 in a SouthWest

Suburban Red matchup .

With the big early lead,

the Warriors (4-2, 2-1)

were able to yank some

of their starters early on

and the guys who replaced

them did not disappoint.

Junior Nick Camodeca

took over a good chunk of

the running back duties,

rushing for 69 yards on

10 carries, including a 15-

yard run.

Marconi was in Camodeca’s

shoes last year.

Marconi, who finished

with 119 yards and two

touchdowns on just seven

carries against Stagg,

played behind now-graduated

Donte Barber last

season, seeing snaps when

Barber was out with injury

and sharing playing time

when he was back and

healthy.

“It’s awesome to see,”

Marconi said of Camodeca’s

play against Stagg.

“He comes to work everyday

and seeing him grow

as a player, it reminds me

of [Anthony Izzarelli] and

Donte doing that for me.

I now know what they

felt when I started to have

some success on varsity.”

West coach Dave Ernst

was on board with that,

LW West at Stagg, Oct. 4

1 2 3 4 F

LW West 14 20 0 0 34

Stagg 0 0 0 7 7

THREE STARS OF THE GAME

1. Caleb Marconi, LW West, senior running back --- seven

carries, 119 yards, two touchdowns

2. Sam Forsythe, LW West, senior defensive back --- six

tackles

3. Billy Dozier, LW West, senior wide receiver --- three

catches, 77 yards, one touchdown; one rushing

touchdown

Up Next: The Warriors host Homewood-Flossmoor (5-1) at

7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct 11. LW West is 0-3 all-time against the

Vikings.

too.

“I was really proud of

those guys,” he said. “We

got a chance to play a lot

of kids and they didn’t disappoint.

They played hard

the whole way. It’s great

when the guys that are on

the prep team and do all

those dirty tough things for

the team, get a chance to

play and when they play,

they play hard.”

West’s high-powered

offensive performance

against Stagg (1-5, 0-4)

was a little breath of fresh

air. Three weeks ago, West

lost its quarterback Brody

Ceh to an injury, but Evan

Wydajewski has stepped

up in the last two weeks

to help give West back-toback

conference wins.

So much so, the team

named Wydajewski a captain

for its game against

Stagg. Wydajewski was

5-of-6 passing for 95 yards

and a touchdown — a

6-yard touchdown pass to

senior wide receiver Billy

Dozier (three catches for

77 yards and one touchdown;

one rushing touchdown)

that followed a 33-

yard pass, also to Dozier.

That score made it 34-0.

“Evan is quiet, he’s like

me, but when he needs to

get loud, he’ll get loud

and lead,” Marconi said.

“He usually just leads by

example, like I try to. We

go hand-in-hand in the

offense because we’re so

much alike. We haven’t

skipped a beat at all.

We’d love to have Brody

[healthy], but it’s just how

the dice rolls.”

The Warriors also threw

sophomore quarterback

Jason Harris into the mix.

Harris scored on a 15-yard

touchdown run, which

made it 28-0.

Defensively, the Warriors

had 23 different players

make a tackle, which

was a season high. Senior

defensive back Sam Forsythe

and junior linebacker

Dan White led the team

with six tackles each.

The defense allowed

just 156 yards on 54 total

plays. Senior defensive

lineman Matt Nevin recovered

a fumble, while

junior defensive lineman

Carter Harris and senior

defensive lineman Dom

Sherman each had a sack.

Stagg’s only score was

on a 10-yard quarterback

run from Collin Gazdziak

in the fourth quarter.

5

Sean Reilly, a senior

defensive lineman, was

another player that made

an impact on the game.

Reilly got a special shoutout

from Ernst during

the team meeting after the

game. During the game,

he made plays that fired

up his teammates and his

coaches as well.

“He’s a great kid,” Ernst

said. “He does everything

that you ask and he doesn’t

get very many opportunities

to play. Today, he

made a tackle on a nineroute

— he’s a D-lineman.

The kid caught the fade

and he got tackled from

behind by a defensive lineman,

who was pursuing

the quarterback. That kind

of effort, you love to see.

Effort is a choice and he

chooses to play hard every

time.”

And for anyone that has

seen a football practice,

those prep team guys take

a beating some days, and

on the face, don’t get much

out of it. But this game

was their chance to showcase

the work they put in.

“It’s the whole team,”

Ernst said. “There isn’t

one kid on this team that

I wouldn’t have in my

house. They’re good kids.

When you’re those kinds

of people, you always

get that effort. It’s like

the enforcers in the NHL,

they’re the nicest people

off the field, but when

they’re on the field, they’ll

get after you and that’s really

what you want from

your guys and I’m proud

of them.”

RANDY WHALEN

Freelance Reporter

It was a big week for

Jared Kreis.

First, the Lincoln-Way

Central senior cross country

and track standout

announced Oct. 2 that

he had made his college

commitment, and it was a

pretty prestigious one. He

will continue his career at

Duke University.

In celebration of that,

he capped off the week by

easily taking the individual

title at the Locktoberfest

boys cross country race on

Saturday, Oct. 5 at Dellwood

Park in Lockport.

Kreis finished with a

time of 15 minutes, 19.3

seconds to win his fifth

race this season. Seniors

Jake Allen (15:42) from

Naperville North and Tyler

Cushing (16:00.2) from

Bolingbrook were second

and third.

“I’m glad to commit to

Duke,” Kreis said. “It was

at the top of my list for a

while.”

It was the first race in

two weeks for Kreis, who

won the First to the Finish

Invite on Sept. 14 at

Detweiller Park in Peoria,

which is the site of the

state finals. He captured

first in the Minooka Flight

Invite at Channahon Park

a week later but the Sept.

28 race, the Bartlett Invite

at Sunrise Park, was rained

out.

There was also rain before

Locktoberfest.

“It wasn’t the best conditions

here,” Kreis said.

“So, I just wanted to come

out, run and have fun on

one of the toughest courses.

“I did well at the end

of track season this past

spring. So, my goal the

rest of this season is to

place in the top three at

the state meet, and also to

qualify for one of the national

meets.”

Central coach John Taylor

was very happy for

Kreis.

“It’s a great highlight for

a great week,” Taylor said.

“What it does is get that

pressure off of him. It [college]

was a huge decision

to have and that’s lifted.

The coach [Norm Ogilvie]

at Duke is great and Jared

will do very well there.

“Here [at Locktoberfest]

his first two miles went

out at 4:45 each for 9:30.

That beat last year’s time

for him in worse conditions.

He’s looking good

and he’s got it right there.

He’s a great student of the

sport.”

The Knights did not

run their full team in the

race. But running to personal

best times on varsity

were junior Jay Parker in

17:07.1 and senior Lucas

Dion in 17:57.9. Erik

Johnson also came in at

18:24.8 for Central.

Taylor also praised his

sophomore team, which

placed first with 48 points

with Plainfield North (84)

second. Sophomore Caden

Simone (17:06.3) and

freshman Connor Lebeau

(17:13.2) placed first and

second overall in the race

for the Knights.

Naperville North (42

points) won the varsity

race. Neuqua Valley (85),

Wheaton North (97) and

host Lockport (117) were

the top four teams.

Lincoln-Way West (380)

placed 13th, but coach Jason

Van Swol was happy.

“Today was ideal,” he

said. “We’ve got a lot of

new guys and half the team

[had personal records].

Last week, the Tinley Park

Invite at Midlothian Meadows

got cancelled and we

were eager to race.”

Bobby Ryan (17:21.6),

Jack Auchstetter (17:40.5)

Nicholas Reyes (18:36),

William Nash (19:06.4),

Robert Macie (19:18.3),

and Cameron Sparks

(19:22.7), who are all juniors,

along with senior

Francis Balquin (19:23.9),

junior Nathaniel Knutson

(19:27.2), and sophomore

Daniel Fish (20:31.9) were

the Warrior varsity runners.

“Bobby Ryan has been

our top guy all year,” Van

Swol said. “His uncle,

Mike Heilman, ran cross

country for Lincoln-Way

in the 1990’s, so he’s second

generation. Bobby,

Jack [Auchstetter], who

PR’ed here, and [senior]

Nolan Kroll [who didn’t

run at Locktoberfest] have

been our top three. But

we’ve had 11 different

guys in our top seven during

the season. It’s been

great.

“We’ve been in Class 3A

[since Lincoln-Way North

closed] but we still have a

small school feel. We have

29 guys out for the team

this season, though, and

that’s the biggest squad

we’ve ever had.”

With the wet conditions,

the varsity race was moved

up a half hour from 9:30

to 9 a.m. Lockport coach

Tom Razo was happy.

“The top teams here,

like Naperville North, are

solid,” Razo said. “We did

well, though. We have a

couple of guys who can

run a little better but they

know who they are. and

will have a few things to

work on for the [South-

West Suburban Conference

Blue Division] meet

[which is hosted by Lockport

on Saturday, Oct. 19

at the high school].

“We moved the race up

and still had the fresh/soph

and the open races go off

well. It was a great day and

having some music, which

was provided by parents,

made it even better.”

LISTEN UP

“It’s great when the guys that are on the prep team and

do all those dirty tough things for the team, get a chance to

play and when they play, they play hard.”
