LW Marching Band

celebrates achievements

Carly Styka, Editorial Intern

Members of the Lincoln-Way

Marching Band,

their families and staff

gathered in the Performing

Arts Center at Lincoln-

Way West High School on

Oct. 30 to honor the band’s

achievements over the past

year and to acknowledge

the hard-working individuals

involved with the


Bert Johnson, Lincoln-

Way East music department

chair and band director,

spoke to the students

and told them what is really

being celebrated.

“Kids, that applause is

for you. Everything tonight

is about your success,”

Johnson said.

The LWMB, with 196

students from all three

Lincoln-Way schools, has

had a successful season.

This month, the band was

crowned Grand Champion

in the finals competition

for the second year in a

row at the Illinois State

Marching Band Championship

held at Illinois

State University. This

competition pits the best

bands in the state against

each other in a preliminary

and finals format. The

band also placed second in

the preliminary competition

and won for Best Music

and Best Visual.

Johnson described the

significance of the band’s

Grand Championship win.

“We have always had

to work hard to get where

we are, and two years in a

row is remarkable for any

school because it’s just

so rare,” Johnson said.

“There’s only four schools


that ever won that championship.”

LWMB placed third in

the preliminary competition

in its class and fourth

in the finals at the Bands of

America Super Regionals

in Indianapolis, a competition

between more than 85

bands. The band placed in

class 4A, which is where

larger bands and past

championship winners

have placed previously.

Although placing and winning

these competitions

is important, it is not the

main focus.

“It’s not really about

how we place; it’s about if

we did our best. That’s all

it’s about,” Johnson said.

Johnson then invited the

drum majors of LWMB on

stage to present the Grand

Champion trophy to Superintendent

Scott Tingley.

Lincoln-Way West music

chairman and band

director Justin Barnish described

the first-place win

as a “huge achievement,”

but the awards are only a

small part of what makes

the band successful.

“We try not to focus

too much on the competitive

aspect of it. We want

to focus more on making

ourselves better and

putting our best foot forward,”

Barnish said. “It’s

really been a special time

here to watch the students

grow and develop their talents

on the marching band


Another major accomplishment

of the band was

being accepted to perform

at the 2020 Macy’s

Thanksgiving Parade in

New York City. Consolidating

the small individual

bands of each Lincoln-

Way school into one large

band in 2016 enabled it

to participate in national

parades and events. The

band also performed at the

Tournament of Roses Parade

in Pasadena this past


The reaction from the

community has been

“nothing but supportive,”

Barnish said. The parents

and booster organizations

have been helpful in providing

funding and assistance

for the band.

“The Lincoln-Way community

is one of the most

supportive communities of

the fine arts I’ve ever experienced,”

Barnish said.

“To be able to be a part of

that community and be a

part of the excitement of

the success of the marching

band has been something


The band’s achievements

were made possible

by the members’

hard work and perseverance.

During the band’s

season, which runs from

May until late October, the

students have rehearsals

that start in June and two

weeks of band camp. The

students rehearse three to

four times a week — two

to three times after school

and once on Saturday, Barnish


“It’s a significant time

commitment, but if you

ask any of the students,

they will tell you it’s worth

every minute to have the

experiences they’ve had in

the marching band,” Barnish


Please see band, 10

There’s no place like Frankfort.

And, like you, we’re happy to call it

home. And we’re proud to be here

celebrating 22 years of service. Thank

you for your business and your trust.

Local Scouts collect goods for one of area’s largest food drives

Will O’Brien

Freelance Reporter

Residents of Tinley

Park, Frankfort Square

and Mokena have an opportunity

to participate in

one of the area’s largest

food drives with the annual

Scouting for Food effort

now underway. Four

Boy Scout troops, five

Cub Scout troops and numerous

Girl Scouts are

participating in the collection

that gathers upwards

of 30,000 pounds of goods

for Together We Cope and

the Frankfort Township

Food Pantry each year.

Scouts canvassed the

area Saturday, Nov. 2,

dropping off bags on

doorsteps throughout the

towns and parts of Frankfort.

They will return Sunday,

Nov. 10, to pick up

donations and proceed to

Lincoln-Way North High

School, where a mass

sorting effort will take


“It just says a lot about

the community to see the

overwhelming generosity,”

said Rich McCully, an

adult leader with Frankfort

Square’s Troop 237

and district commissioner

with Rainbow Council,

which encompasses

troops throughout the region.

“We live in a great

area, but there’s still a lot

of people hurting and we

sometimes take that for


Troop 237, which draws

boys from several communities,

got involved

with Scouting for Food, a

nationwide Scouting tradition,

eight years ago,

McCully said. They pair

up with Troops 40 (Mokena),

725 (Mokena), 732

(Frankfort Square) as well

as Cub Scout troops 39

and 442 (Tinley Park). Girl

Scouts, especially siblings

of the boys involved, are

known to pitch in as well.

The collection area runs

roughly from Lincoln

Highway to 181st Street

and from Harlem Avenue

to Wolf Road. The Scouts

use fire maps to divvy up

their routes.

McCully, a former

Scoutmaster with 237,

said the troop started its

Scouting for Food collection

after he noticed it

in other towns and wondered

why it wasn’t being

done locally. Unsure of

what the response would

be, the Scouts expected to

gather 2,000 or so pounds

their first year. They got 10

times that amount.

“It just blew our doors

away,” McCully said,

“And it’s been growing

ever since. A lot of people

have put a lot of time and

effort into it, especially the


The drive teaches

Scouts important lessons

about caring for their community

and helping those

in need, he said. Many of

the area’s residents experiencing

hunger are elderly,

he said, burdened with

expensive medications or

prioritizing feeding pets

over themselves. Roughly

63 percent of the individuals

served by the Frankfort

pantry are senior citizens,

and the figure is growing,

McCully said.

Tony Roman, the pantry

manager at Together

We Cope, said the goods

for Food lasts the Tinley

Park nonprofit several


“It really helps fill our

stock of the basic and standard

items we need every

day,” he said. “And that

allows me to spend money

on other items our clients

need. Collaborating with

the Scouts and young people

is fantastic for our organization

and the Scouts


Roman noted Scouts

also help Together We

Cope over the course of

the year through other activities

and smaller collections.

Acceptable items run

the gamut of pantry staples,

from canned soups,

fruits and vegetables to

dry pastas, sauces and seasoning.

All items must be

manufacturer-made, however,

as the pantries cannot

accept homemade jams,

McCully said.

Residents are welcome

to go beyond filling a donation

bag. Whole pallets

and a whole van full of

goods have been donated

in the past, he said. The

Troop can be contacted

through its Facebook page,

At Lincoln-Way North,

the goods will be sorted by

items inevitably wind up

in each year’s collection.

One year’s haul included

bread crumbs from the

1970s, McCully said.

“One thing you learn

doing this is that there

are hundreds of kinds of

beans,” he said with a


Recent collections have

eclipsed the 30,000 and

even 35,000-pound mark,

he said.

“It’s really important —

and heart-warming — to

see our community step up

in this way,” he said.

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


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


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,

Scianna 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


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, Scianna said.

The thought of that

brought tears to Scianna’s


“We are going to hit a

million dollars,” Scianna

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

Road Trail.

“I’ve seen groups of them before at the sanctuary

as they migrate south in the fall, but this is the first

time I’ve seen only one,” he wrote. “Pelicans breed in

Canada and North Dakota and can be seen anywhere

in the country, according to my bird book.”

Hemp Gummies Shown

To Relieve Discomfort

Hemp Gummies offer users fast acting relief from joint and muscle discomfort

thats absolutely delicious; now available in the U.S. without aprescription

Chris Laufstein

Associated Health Press

BOSTON For millions battling daily discomfort, this news

couldnt bemore exciting.

Anew relief extract found in hemp is available across the nation

and can be purchased without aprescription.

And the best part, it comes to users inthe form of atasty gummy


So you can say goodbye to pills, needles, and creams!

Hemp Gummies, contains pure concentrated doses of hemp

extract, which can help relieve joint discomfort along with general

muscle aches and soreness.

It also calms, relaxes, and eases tension all over the body.

Exciting new scientic research shows that hemp extract contains

special relief molecules called cannabinoids which bind to

receptor cites in the brain and body. When taken orally, hemp

extract activates these receptors, and soothing comfort begins to

take form.

Available Across the Nation

Recent developments, like the US Farm Bill, allow Hemp

Gummies to be sold in the U.S. without aprescription. And since

it cant get you high its ying off the shelves.

Most people have no idea that pure hemp extract, like Hemp

Gummies, can be purchased. And thats because it contains no

THC, explains Dr. Joe Wezensky, who sits on the scientic board

at Medici Quest.

Instead, its bursting with special relief compounds called

cannabinoids. These cannabinoids target special receptor cites all

over the body but are most prominent in the brain.

This system of cannabinoids and the receptors that they bind

to are called the Endocannabinoid System and science is just now

unlocking its amazing medical potential

In fact, the initial research has been so impressive that

hemp extract is now patented by the US Government (patent


Itsalso beingused by athletesinthe NFL, MMAamongother

physically demanding sports as asafe alternative.

Clearing Up the Confusion Around Hemp

One of the biggest mistakes people make when talking about

hemp extract is mixing it up with marijuana.

Although the two fall under the same plant category, cannabis

sativa, they have completely different effects on the body.

Remarkably, hemp extract is available in the U.S. and cant get

you high (ever!). Thats because there isnoTHC in it, the chemical

that makes you feel buzzed.

Although you cant get high from Hemp Gummies, you can

start feeling the effective relief, explains Wezensky.


Most people have very low cannabinoid levels, which is why

they constantly ache. Hemp Gummies boosts cannabinoid levels

extremely fast, helping relieve lingering joint discomfort ...muscle

tension...and general soreness. Italso eases stress and elicits

amazing relaxation withoutfeeling impaired. And what most people

really love is theyre delicious and soeasy totake onthe go.

How itWorks

Clinical studies show that cannabinoids and the receptors that

they bind to are found all over your body.

However, theyare most concentrated in your brain. Thatswhy

it has such aprofound impact on how you feel, especially your

level ofcomfort.

These cannabinoids and their receptors work like lock and

key and bind to each other triggering important biological


Keeps Your Body Balanced...

The incredible impact cannabinoids have on your health is

directly related to the primary goal of your Endocannabinoid

System, which is to maintain abalance inthe body, aphysiological

state known as homeostasis.

Research shows that maintaining this balance is akey to vitality

and healthy bodily function.

The cannabinoids found in Hemp Gummies, hemp extract, replenish

your levels quickly, easing discomfort overthe entirebody.

Plus, by keeping your body in balance (homeostasis), Hemp

Gummies also helps to relieve stress and tension...improve sleep...

and even promote relaxation and calmness.

Hemp Extract, like Hemp Gummies,

may help users with...

•Aching joints •Soremuscles

•Cramping •Leg and foot discomfort

•Restlessness •Stress

•Sleep problems

Not YetSold in Stores

Hemp extract that is derived from industrial hemp, like Hemp

Gummies, isavailable nationwide. However, several major pharmaceutical

companies are currently testing hemp extract in clinical

settings, which means it may require aprescription in the future.

Its advised to get Hemp Gummies while you can.

Taking All the Risk Off Consumers

Alarge percentage of men and women using Hemp Gummies

experience truly amazing results. Thats why its now being sold

with aguarantee that goes way beyond the industry standard.


Gummies a10milligramdose of Hemp Extract that works all

day to keep you comfortable.

We can only make this guarantee because we are 100%

certain our customers will be satised, says Wezensky. We

want to take full risk off consumers. So in addition to offering

substantial discounts for rst time customers, we also make

Multiple agencies

participate in simulated

train derailment exercise

The average daily ridership

across six counties on

Metra’s commuter trains

is approximately 177,000.

There are two Metra stations

in Mokena, at Front

Street downtown and the

Hickory Creek station on

the east side of town.

Now, imagine if one of

those trains derailed. People

are injured. The train is

heavily damaged and could

pose additional risks to both

passengers and emergency

responders. How would

emergency personnel respond?

What protocols are

in place to attend to injured

passengers? What systems

are in place to quickly and

efficiently respond to such

a hypothetical disaster?

On Oct. 26, Village officials

teamed up with Metra

and Department of Homeland

Security Transportation

Safety Administration

officials at the Hickory

Creek station for a training

exercise based precisely on

those concerns.

The joint training exercise

included members of

Mokena police, fire and

other support staff from the

Village. And, according to

Mokena Police Chief Steve

Vaccaro, everything went


Vaccaro said that all parties

worked well together

and that, from a preparation

standpoint, Mokena “is prepared”

in the event of this

sort of emergency situation.

While the Village and

its partnerships with Will

County, Metra and neighboring


emergency responders are

strong, Vaccaro stressed

the need to continue these

sorts of training exercises

to ensure each department

is on top of the latest developments

in technology

to assist in emergency situations.

Frankfort producer, Tinley musician pursue new project

…and the balloons

releases third

single, works on

debut album


Will O’Brien

Freelance Reporter

Chris Rollins and Drew

Neely met when Rollins

was a teenager making

music and looking to record.

More than a decade

later, the duo’s back at it,

this time collaborating on

a group called …and the


The band’s third single,

“She, Tokyo,” debuted

Oct. 27, on 101.1 WKQX,

and a full album is in the

works. For Rollins, a Tinley

Park resident, and

Neely, of Frankfort, balloons

is a natural progression

of a passion they’ve

both been pursuing since


Rollins, a 30-something

who manages social media

for a large health care company

during the day, grew

up near Midway airport,

caught the music bug in

middle school and quickly

fell into the greater South

Side pop-punk scene.

Still in high school, Rollins

and his band recorded

demos and short albums

at Neely’s in-home studio

in Oak Lawn. Neely, a

multi-instrumentalist and

self-taught producer who

toured with bands throughout

his 20s, said Rollins

is a fun-loving guy who

takes his craft seriously.

“Not many musicians

are as hard-working and

motivated as Chris,” Neely


“Everyone finds hobbies

during those formative

Pictured is Rollins drumming with Down in Front during the early 2000s.

years,” Rollins said. “I’m

just lucky I picked the

right one.”

Down in Front, a

group for which Rollins

drummed, got hot

in the early 2000s, playing

shows with Fall Out

Boy and the Plain White


“We had a lot of local

success and it was a really

exciting time,” Rollins


After six years together,

the band members went

their separate ways. The

singer, Chris Medina,

made it to the top 40 of the

2010 season of American

Idol and continues to enjoy

popularity overseas. The

others are still pursuing

music too, Rollins said.

Rollins played with

several groups in the

years since and all the

while continued writing

songs. A year ago, with a

healthy catalogue of original

tracks, he reconnected

with Neely, whose Off

the Tracks Recording and

Thrifty Records businesses

are based just south of

downtown Frankfort.

After freelancing out

of various studios around

town, Neely, a 44-year-old

father of two, opened the

space a year ago. Off the

Tracks works with musicians

like Rollins who

write songs and need guidance

with what’s next, he

said, while Thrifty manages

distribution and radio

promotion. Neely also

teaches private music lessons

and does audio and

video work for Frankfort

marketing firm Brand-


“Chris wanted to come

by and check the place

out, and it was like no time

had passed,” Neely said.

“He said, ‘This feels right.

Let’s do it.’”

And do it they have.

The band’s first single,

“I Know It’s Not Safe,”

hit airwaves in July, and

Future plans include live

Besides Rollins, balloons

features a rotating

cast of musicians, the latest

iteration including

Tinley Park resident Sam

Libretti (bass guitar) and

South Siders Tony Tenerelli

Billing the group as

“high energy, alternative

pop-rock,” Rollins said

his influences range from

his teenage years — Green

Day, Local H, Alkaline

Trio — to the classics like

Simon and Garfunkel and


For Rollins, creating

music is a form of expression

comparable to painting

or writing a book.

“It’s getting emotions

out, getting stories out

that you didn’t even know

were floating around in

your mind, in your subconscious,”

he said. “You

didn’t know where it was

going, but now here it is,

this tangible thing you created.

And then you can

take it one step further and

share it with people.”

LWE student artwork featured at Vogt Visual Arts Center

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

Lincoln-Way East senior Jessica Selph takes home

“Best in Show” in the Vogt Visual Arts Center’s High

School Fine Art Exhibit for her colored pencil piece.

From self portraits to still

lives, abstract paintings to

photography, the Vogt Visual

Arts Center is featuring

an array of mediums from

talented young artists during

its annual High School

Fine Art Exhibit.

Students from eight area

schools – double last year’s

participation – including

Victor J. Andrew, Tinley

Park, Bremen, Oak Forest,

Hillcrest and Lincoln-Way

East, West and Central High

Schools all displayed work

in the showcase which will

run through Nov. 27.

During the exhibit’s

opening reception on the

afternoon of Saturday, Nov.

2, artists had the opportunity

to see the work of their

peers while also sharing

insight into their own creations.

Tinley Park resident

Stephanie Odubunmi, a

freshman at Andrew, captured

a fleeting moment

of perfect lighting on her

brother David with her photography

submission. She

explained that using film,

rather than digital photography,

makes the artistic

process that much more enjoyable.

“The process of using

film is very interesting to

me,” Odubunmi said. “Digital

is like you just take the

photo and it’s there, but I

like seeing it come along.

“This picture was taken

around five o’clock. My

brother came outside and I

saw the light. I told him to

look this way and I took the


The result is a beautiful

portrait with shadows and

lights working together to

reveal hints of the subject’s


Gallery Director Julie

Dekker was struck by the

personal, original and emotional

nature of many of this

year’s submissions.

“It’s very individual type

of work, very expressive,”

Dekker said. “As always,

this group brings in interesting

subject matter. It’s

very personal and evokes

emotion more than some art

we see from adults who are

more representative. That’s

always exciting to see.”

Lincoln-Way West student

Shawna Gordon

tapped into both her left

and right brain to create her

black and white marker design.

“I wanted to do something

with depth,” Gordon

said. “Towards the center

you can see that the lines

get closer together and

then further apart going towards

the outside. I like to

play with that kind of thing

along with a sea feeling. It

has these parts on the bottom

and top that are almost

like seaweed and the little

rocks all around play at the

idea of the bottom of an

ocean that’s topsy-turvy.”

A panel of Vogt Visual

Arts Center instructors selected

several pieces from

each school to receive special

recognition awards

and Jessica Selph, a senior

at Lincoln-Way East, took

home the honor of Best in


“It’s a very interesting

piece, very imaginative,”

Dekker said of Selph’s colored

pencil work. “It’s sort

of a little girl with a bunny

mask on, big eyes and she’s

holding two bunches of carrots.

It’s very fantasy driven

and very well done. It’s a

well thought-out piece. It

jumps right at you.”

Crosshatching, acrylic

painting and digital photography

were also popular

mediums of this year’s high

school show.

Following the High

School Fine Art Exhibit,

the Vogt Visual Arts Center

is getting ready for the holidays

with its highly-anticipated

Model Train exhibit.

“It’s time for our model

train show,” said Dekker.

“Our dollhouse and miniatures

show has morphed

into a model train exhibit

and it’s gotten really popular.

This year we’re excited

because we have several

new layouts. We’re changing

it all around. We have

new participants, so it’s going

to be a little bit bigger

and I’m really excited about


The High School Fine

Art Exhibit will be on display

until Nov. 27 and the

opening reception for the

Trains and Miniatures Exhibit

will be held from 10

a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 7

and from noon until 5 p.m.

Sold-out painting party benefits LWSRA programs

Kyle LaHucik, Freelance Reporter

Wine, painting and a good

time made for the perfect mixture

for a sold-out crowd Oct. 27

at Gina’s Teardrop Cafe in New

Lenox. Friends, families and athletes

gathered to paint inspirational

quotes on wooden boards

as a fundraiser for the Lincolnway

Special Recreation Association.

“I’d do anything to be with

these people,” Nicki Sweezer, a

basketball player on the LWS-

RA wheelchair team, said while

looking through the 30 or so

available quotes to use for her

board. She landed on “it’s all just

a bunch of hocus pocus.”

“I’m all about Halloween,”

Sweezer said. She dressed as a

sugar skull for Halloween season,

which is her favorite holiday.

Proceeds from the event will

go toward a scholarship program,

the association’s sports teams or

an adult day program, LWSRA

Executive Director Keith Wallace

said, adding that a specific

allocation hasn’t been decided

yet. Gina’s Teardrop Cafe donated

sandwiches and drinks for the

event and DIY Sign Party led the

painting activities.

“We love getting organizations

that do fundraising on our behalf,”

Wallace said, noting that it

lifts a weight off the shoulders of

LWSRA staff. “It brings people


Terrie Murphy, a co-director of

the New Lenox Relay For Life,

did a similar fundraiser for the

American Cancer Society recently

and wanted to do a similar

event in support of the LWSRA.

She teamed up with Gina’s Teardrop

Cafe owner Gina Buck,

whose son has participated in

LWSRA programs for nearly 25


“Keith is a great guy,” Buck


She said her son, who is 27,

has enjoyed his experiences with

the LWSRA, whether that’s going

on trips or engaging in the

Titans adult day program.

Buck’s mother, Mary Lungaro,

and friends Darlene Purler and

Pat Goes painted together.

“She’s got a good heart,” Goes,

who works at Gina’s Cafe, said

of Buck. She painted the phrase

“Scatter kindness” on her home

decor board.

Colleen Musselman, who’s

played basketball for 10 years —

the two most recent for the LWS-

RA team — decided to paint the

phrase “If the shoe fits,” because

it reminds her of Toy Story. Musselman

decided to attend the

event because “it’s fun to do with

my teammates,” she said.

Participants created everyday

designs to accent their homes

with phrases like “Beautifully

broken,” “Simply blessed,” “It is

well with my soul” and holidaythemed

ones, as well.

Most of the 60 attendees said

they had never taken part in a

painting party before. Melinda

Green, owner of the 6-year-old

wood sign painting workshop,

taught participants how to make

their boards: Chalk the back of

the paper with the quote, tape it

onto the board, trace the outline

and then apply brushstrokes of

any of the many dozens of acrylic

paint options.

Lauren Tidball and Jamie

Meyer hadn’t known about the

LWSRA before coming to the

event but were invited by their

aunt and were excited to paint,

they said.

Green said she was especially

interested in leading the workshop

for the LWSRA because she

worked for Lincoln-Way Area

Special Education District 843

for 10 years.

“This is the grass roots of what

I did,” Green said.

The groups were coming together

for a good cause for a

unique experience, she added.

from 30 different inspirational

designs to paint on wooden

Distinctive Home Builders Introduces New Craftsman Homes

In Manhattan, Peotone, and Joliet – From the mid-$200’s

New designs are a result of buyer feedback

Two refreshing designs mark

the beginning of a new series

of Craftsman-style homes

available from Distinctive Home

Builders at its latest new home

communities: Prairie Trails;

located in Manhattan within the



School District and at WestGate

Manor in Peotone within the

desirable Peotone School District.

“Craftsman homes were

introduced in the early 1900s in

California with designs based on a

simpler, functional aesthetic using

a higher level of craftsmanship

and natural materials. These

homes were a departure from

homes that were mass produced

from that era, “according to Bryan

Nooner, president of Distinctive

Home Builders.

“The Craftsman design has

made a comeback today for many

of the same reasons it started over

a century ago. Our customers

want to live in a home that gets

away from the “mass produced”

look and live in a home that has

more character. As a result of

our daily interaction with our

homeowners and their input, we

are excited to introduce these two

homes, with additional designs in

the works.”

Nooner, who meets with each

homeowner prior to construction,

has been working on these plans

for a while and felt that the

timing was ideal for the debut.

“Customers were asking for

something different and simple

with less monotony and higher

architectural standards.” The

result was the Craftsman ranch

and the Prairie two story, now

available at Prairie Trails and

WestGate Manor. The Craftsman

ranch features an open floor plan

with Great Room, three bedrooms,

two baths and a two-car (optional

three-car) garage. The Prairie

features a two-story foyer and

Great Room, three bedrooms

and one and one-half baths, a

convenient Flex Room space

on the main level and a two-car

(optional three-car) garage. The

Craftsman architectural elements

on both homes include brick and

stone exteriors with cedar shake

accent siding, low-pitched gabled

bracket roofs, front porches with

tapered columns and stone piers,

partially paned windows, and a

standard panel front entry door.

Distinctive Home Builders

offers a Craftsman-style trim

package offering trim without

ornate profiles and routers. The

trim features simplicity in design

with rectangles, straight lines and

layered look trims over doors for

example. The front entry door

will have the standard Craftsman

panel style door. Distinctive has

also created a Craftsman color

palate to assist buyers in making

coordinated choices for the

interior of their new Craftsman

home. Colors, cabinet styles and

flooring choices blend seamlessly

with the Craftsman trim package

and are available in gray tones

package and earth tones.

Distinctive offers custom maple

kitchen cabinets featuring solid

wood construction (no particle

board), have solid wood drawers

with dove tail joints, which is

very rare in the marketplace.

“When you buy a new home

from Distinctive, you truly are

receiving custom made cabinets

in every home we sell no matter

what the price range,” noted


Distinctive Home Builders

works to achieve a delivery goal

of 90 days with zero punch list

items for its homeowners. “Our

three decades building homes

provides an efficient construction

system,” said Nooner. “Many

of our skilled craftsmen have

been working with our company

for over 20 years. We also

take pride on having excellent

communicators throughout our

organization. This translates into

a positive buying and building

experience for our homeowners

and one of the highest referral

rates in the industry.” Nooner

added that all homes are highly

energy efficient. Every home

built will have upgraded wall and

ceiling insulation values with

energy efficient windows and

high efficiency furnaces. Before

homeowners move into their new

home, Distinctive Home Builders

conducts a blower door test that

pressurizes the home to ensure

that each home passes a set of

very stringent Energy Efficiency


With the addition of these two

new designs, there are now 15

ranch, split-level and six two

story single-family home styles

to choose from each offering from

three to eight different exterior

elevations at both communities.

The three- to four-bedroom

homes feature one and one-half

to two-and-one-half baths, two

to three-car garages and a family

room, all in approximately 1,600

to over 3,000 square feet of living

space. Basements are included in

most models as well. Distinctive

also encourages customization

to make your new home truly

personalized to suit your lifestyle.

Oversize home sites; brick

exteriors on all four sides of the

first floor; custom maple cabinets;

ceramic tile or hardwood floors

in the kitchen, baths and foyer;

genuine wood trim and doors

and concrete driveways can all

be yours at Prairie Trails and

WestGate Manor. Most all home

sites at Prairie Trails andWestGate

Manor can accommodate a threecar

garage; a very important

amenity to the Manhattan

homebuyer, said Nooner. “When

we opened Prairie Trails and

WestGate Manor we wanted

to provide the best new home

value for the dollar and we feel

with offering Premium Standard

Features that we do just that. So

why wait? This is truly the best

time to build your dream home!”

Prairie Trails is also a beautiful

place to live and raise a family

featuring a 20-acre lake on site,

as well as direct access to the 22-

mile Wauponsee Glacial Prairie

Path that borders the community

and meanders through many

neighboring communities and

links to many other popular trails.

The Manhattan Metra station is

less than a mile away.

Besides Prairie Trails,

Distinctive Home Builders

has built homes throughout

Manhattan in the Butternut Ridge

and Leighlinbridge developments,

as well as in the Will and south

Cook county areas over the past

30 years.

Distinctive has two early

delivery homes available at its

newest community, Cedar Creek

in Joliet where you can choose

your colors now and move in 45

days. One is a three-bedroom

Princeton ranch with two full

baths in an open floor plan with

kitchen and Great Room. Priced

at $289,990 this home has over

$20,000 in free upgrades. The

second home is a Brentwood

three-bedroom raised ranch with

an oversized garage. Priced at

$279,900, this home features

many interior and exterior

architectural details and over

$30,000 in free upgrades.

10 Questions

with Hallie Hoger

Andrew stuns Griffins in

regional championship

PHIL ARVIA, Freelance Reporter

Hallie Hoger is a sophomore

on the Lincoln-Way

East cross country and

track and field teams.

How long have

you been running

competitively and how

did you get started?

I’ve been running for

six years. I started in fifth

grade. I always liked to

run. I played soccer when

I was little. My older sister

ran cross country, only

for a year, but I went to her

meets and I really wanted

to do it. So, when I was finally

old enough to do it, I

started as soon as I could.

What do you like most

about the sport?

I really like the meets. I

like being able to compete.

I think that’s my favorite

part about it. I also like

that you have to have a lot

of perseverance. I think

it’s hard, physically and


What are the mental

challenges when

you’re out there

running alone?

That’s been one of my

biggest struggles, especially

this season, my

times have been ranging

all season because of my

mental struggles. But, I

had my best run of the

year [Oct. 26 at the Class

3A Andrew Regional] because

I wasn’t in my head

at all. I think when you’re

in a good place mentally, it

really helps you do better.

The team’s top runner,

Kate Guderjan, has

been out recently,

and you led the team

at regionals with a

fourth-place finish.

What’s it been like

stepping up to lead the


I think it’s been a big

confidence booster, but

at the same we definitely

want [Guderjan] back so

we can do well as a team.

We’re excited that she will

be back for sectionals.

Do you have a

favorite course to

run or a favorite


I really liked Joliet

Central’s course in Channahon.

I like how it’s in

the forest a lot. I like that

shade. It’s cooler in there

and I feel like that helps

you go faster.

Do you have any


I’ve had the same kind

of shoes since seventh

grade. I just keep buying

new pairs of the same kind.

Do you have any prerace


I always eat spaghetti

the night before a race.

You’re stranded on a

Steve Millar/22nd Century


deserted island and

can have an endless

supply of one food.

What do you want?

Tacos. Definitely tacos. I

like beef tacos, specifically

from Faby’s. Those are my


What is your favorite

TV show?

I really like medical

shows, like ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

and ‘911.’ I think it’s

really interesting to watch

all the action and see the

different stories behind

the different medical situations.

I really like how

the human body works

and I’m really interested in


Who would you pay to

see in concert?

I really like this band

called Surfaces. I really

like Thomas Rhett, too.

Interview conducted by

Sports Editor Steve Millar.

Playing in its home gym and coming

off a hot finish to the regular season, Andrew

figured to be a tough draw for Lincoln-Way

East in the Class 4A Andrew

Regional final on Oct. 31.

As it turns out, the Thunderbolts did

not just give East all it could handle. They

gave the Griffins more than they could


Sixth-seeded Andrew outlasted secondseeded

East 25-20, 19-25, 25-21 to win its

first regional title since 2006 and end the

Griffins’ season in disappointment.

East coach Kris Fiore threw plenty of

praise the way of Andrew (25-10).

“It was a very intense match,” Fiore

said. “Give them all the credit. They were

definitely prepared and they played with

enthusiasm. I think the crowd helped


Though the Griffins got 13 kills each

from Emma Kein and Jess Pappas, along

with 33 assists from Ava Porada and Kaleigh

Ritter’s 26 digs, they weren’t as consistent

as Fiore would have liked.

“We had 27 hitting or service errors —

some of which they forced us into,” he

said. “That’s the exact recipe for losing to

a lower seed.”

Of course, upset efforts are greatly increased

when the underdog gets a star

performance like the one Andrew’s Abby

Kiaupa delivered.

The junior opposite side hitter had 19

kills and six blocks.

“The girls call her Skyupa,” Andrew

coach Emily Connolly said. “She’s such

a joy to watch.

“She is the emotional aspect of our

team. She is the power aspect of our team.

When she is doing well, she brings the

energy to our team — and she’s usually

doing well.”

Kiaupa did so at most of the key moments

in the match with East (27-10),

which beat the Thunderbolts 25-14, 25-23

during the regular season. Andrew advanced

to the Sandburg Sectional and a

6:30 p.m. contest Monday, Nov. 4, against

No. 3 seed Homewood-Flossmoor.

Kiaupa had three kills and a block in

Lincoln-Way East’s Kayla Schroeder

Griffins’ loss Oct. 31. JEFF VORVA/22nd

Century Media

the early going of the opening set, and

added a kill and two blocks on consecutive

points to hand Andrew a 21-15 lead.

When Lincoln-Way rallied at that juncture,

another Kiaupa kill ended the surge

at 22-19.

Silenced throughout most of the second

set, Kiaupa was heard again in the finale.

She had a kill and a block to end the first

two points and added three straight kills

to give Andrew a 6-3 lead. Most importantly,

after East tied that set at 19, Kiaupa

had five straight kills to put the Thunderbolts

one point from the title — which

they got when the Griffins were unable to

dig up Keri Herman’s attack.

Kiaupa was hardly the only T-Bolt to

contribute. Brianna Haggerty had 16 kills,

Kylie Adams 25 digs, Amy Rediger seven

kills and four blocks, and Katie Dehaan

43 assists and 15 digs.

Thus ended a season in which the Griffins

improved greatly from an 18-19 finish

in 2018.

East will lose its star, Pappas, to graduation

along with seniors Kein, Kayla

Schroeder, Olivia Molnar and Jordan

Lindsey, but should return a good core

from this year’s team, led by Porada, Ritter,

Cierra Gardner and Ali Sorenson.

Girls Track and Field

Memorable track careers helped LW East twins adjust to life in America

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

When twins Ibukun and

Ore Ajifolokun moved

from Canada to Frankfort

before their sophomore

year in high school, they

decided to join the Lincoln-Way

East track team.

Showing up and earning

a spot with of the most successful

high school track

programs in the country is

no easy task, however, and

the twins were certainly

not naturals.

“In practice the first day,

they were getting lapped,”

East coach Brian Evans

said. “They struggled to do

pretty simple drills. They

couldn’t walk and chew

gum. We were just scratching

our heads, like ‘What

are we going to do with

these two?’

“They had a lot going

on already, moving to a

new country, trying to get

things straight with school

because some of their credits

from their old school

did not transfer over. Then

you throw into the mix

joining the Lincoln-Way

East track team, which is a

pretty daunting thing. We

just kind of figured they

weren’t going to last.”

The Ajifolokun twins,

who were born in Nigeria

and grew up in Canada,

found a home on the track

team. They were not about

to quit, no matter how difficult

it was.

“When I first moved,

I struggled to adjust that

first semester,” Ore said.

“But after I joined the track

team my second semester,

I made such a great bond

with all my teammates and

I had great friends for the

rest of my high school career.

“Practices were really

intense and it took me a

Ore Ajifolokun (right) takes the baton from her twin sister, Ibukun, during a race with

Lincoln-Way East. The sisters became All-State runners after moving from Canada.

while to get used to it, but

I didn’t want to give up.”

Ibukun echoed those

sentiments, saying track

practice was something

the twins always looked

forward to.

“Even though it was

tough at first, we had each

other and I think we both

wanted to make the best

of it,” she said. “Plus, we

made great friends on the

team and being with them

every day made it worth it,

even when we were struggling.”

Over the course of their

three years on the track

team, the Ajifolokun twins

came quite a long way.

They earned their spots

on a Griffins’ lineup that

is awfully tough to crack.

When both graduated this

past spring, Ibukun left

East as a three-time state

medalist and Ore also

earned an All-State medal

her senior year.

“By the time I was done,

I was shocked with how

good I was doing compared

to when I started,”

Ore said. “I was proud of

both of us. All the hard

work paid off.”

Evans was a bit surprised

to see the twins not

only not quit, but put in

even more effort to improve.

“They were coming to

our summer camp, getting

in the weight room, working

on their coordination,

just trying to get better,”

he said.

Ibukun was the first to

become a highly competitive

runner and crack the

East lineup as a junior.

“By the time we got to

state their junior year, we

had a couple injuries late

and Ibukun ended up getting

a spot at state in the

[1,600 meter relay],” Evans

said. “She led us off,

did a heck of a job, got an

All-State medal.”

With that race alone,

Ibukun blew away all of

her own expectations.

“I’m so proud,” she

said. “It was not anything

I expected. When I first

started, I just wanted to

make it to compete in one

of our invitationals. Then I

ended up making it to state


Indeed, Ibukun made it

back again this past spring.

This time, Ore was competing

with her.

Ore’s path was a bit more

difficult. Evans noticed

she was getting fatigued

quickly and convinced her

to get her serotonin iron

levels tested.

“Low serotonin iron levels

is something we see a

lot in our athletes,” Evans

said. “Ore got tested and

her level was at an eight.

To put that in perspective,

Nike doesn’t even let any

of their sponsored athletes

come to practice if they’re

under 80. So, Ore got that

figured out and then all

of a sudden, you see her


come to life and start closing

the gap between her

and her sister.”

Both twins earned All-

State honors this past

spring in Charleston. Ibukun

competed on the state

runner-up 1,600 relay team

and the twins ran together

on the All-State 800 relay


“The best was when we

were on relays together,”

Ore said. “We almost always

passed the baton between

us, and that was a

lot of fun.

“I’ll always remember

my teammates cheering

me on every time I ran a

race and pushing me to go


The twins are now both

at the University of Illinois.

Ibukun is studying

material science and engineering,

and Ore is majoring

in kinesiology and

hopes to become a dentist.

Evans has talked to both

about walking on to the

Illini track team, feeling

both have just scratched

the surface of their potential.

That is something the

twins said they will consider

after settling into academically

in Champaign.

Whether they ever compete

in track again or not,

the sport has undoubetdly

made a major impact on

their lives.

“When we moved, I

kind of felt like an outsider

at first,” Ibukun said. “I

didn’t really know anyone,

didn’t know how to

be a high school student

in America. But once we

joined track, it felt good to

be a part of something and

to have something to do

every day. It helped build

my confidence, too and it

changed my personality a

Hungry to have a big

game, Porto and quarterback

Kevin Conway have

been putting in some extra

time together at practice to

make sure they are on the

“Me and Kevin worked

Conway finished 9-of-

15 passing for 160 yards

and the two touchdowns to

Porto. He also ran 13 times

for 54 yards, including the

go-ahead 11-yard touchdown

in the fourth quarter.

Conway hit Porto for a

32-yard score with 1:07

left in the first half to tie

the game 7-7.

“[Porto] did great,”

Conway said. “We’ve been

running sluggo [routes]

and double moves in practice

and we’ve just been

timing up everything.

“We started slow and we

have to fix that in the second

round, come out fast

right away. But once we

got going, things worked

out. At the end of the day,

we scored more points

than they did and that’s all

that matters.”

The duo hooked up

again on the first play of

the fourth quarter, Conway

finding Porto for a 34-

yard touchdown to put the

Celtics up 13-7. The extra

point was no good.

“I’ve been waiting a

while for this,” Porto said.

“It was a long time coming.”

Normal West (7-3) took

advantage of a short field

after a Providence fumble

on a punt return as Carson

Camp hit LaTre Billups for

a 37-yard touchdown pass.

The extra point gave the

Wildcats a 14-13 lead with

10:47 to go.

Conway, though, provided

some of the biggest

plays of the game with his

feet. First, he ran for an

11-yard touchdown to put

Providence back in front

19-14 with 7:27 to go.

After forcing a punt, the

Celtics got the ball back

with 4:20 left and were

able to run out the clock

as Conway picked up two

huge first downs, running

for 19 yards on thirdand-17

and seven yards on


“[On the third-and-17],

we were ideally trying to

throw it,” Conway said.

“We were trying to set up

the wheel route, but I saw

a huge opening and I was

like, I’ve just got to use my

feet here. I did and got the

first down.”

Aaron Vaughn ran for

148 yards on 19 carries for

the Celtics.

Meanwhile, the Providence

defense stepped up

in a big way. With a secondary

decimated by injuries,

the Celtics kept Camp

relatively in check. The

South Dakota recruit was

14-of-26 passing for 136

yards and two touchdowns.

“We let up a big play

here or there, and they’re a

good team so we knew they

were going to get some,”

Coglianese said. “Holding

them to 14 points, I’m

Girls Swimming

Balanced effort leads LW East

to second straight SWSC title


Freelance Reporter

Lincoln-Way East’s Grace Hagemaster swims during

the SouthWest Suburban Conference meet Saturday,

Nov. 2. Hagemaster won the 100-yard backstroke and

was on the winning team in the 200 medley relay. ADAM


When the SouthWest

Suburban Conference

formed in the fall of 2005,

there was only one conference

champion in girls

swimming for the first three


But when Lincoln-Way

North opened in the fall

of 2008, the SWSC broke

off into Blue and Red divisions

for swimming and

remained that way for a


Now, after the departure

from the conference of Joliet

West, Joliet Central,

Thornwood, Thornton and

Thornton, with the league

down to nine teams, there

was once again only one

conference meet.

That did not change

things for Lincoln-Way

East. Just like last season,

the Griffins emerged as

conference champions Saturday,

Nov. 2, at Lincoln-

Way Central.

That was held this past

Saturday, Nov.2, at Lincoln-Way

Central. But just

like last season, it was Lincoln-Way

East emerging as

the conference champion.

East finished with 289

points to outdistance runner-up

Lincoln-Way Central

(212) and third place

Lincoln-Way West (209).

Sandburg (179) was

fourth, followed by Lockport

(139), Stagg (101),


(99), Andrew (93), and

Bradley-Bourbonnais (38).

It was the fourth overall

SWSC title for the Griffins,

who won two races but

had All-Conference performances

in 10 of the 12

varsity events. Their other

SWSC crowns were a Red

one in 2008 and Blue titles

in 2015 and 2018.

“A repeat from last year,”

East coach Kate Gabey

said. “I thought [having everyone

together] was kind

of cool. It made it more

competitive as a whole.”

It was a balanced effort

that did it for the Griffins.

Individuals made All-Conference

if they were in the

top four and relay teams

were considered All-Conference

if they were in the

top two. East had an All-

Conference representative

in all but two events: the

500-yard freestyle and the

100 breaststroke.

The Griffins won the 200

medley relay as the foursome

of Grace Hagemaster,

Alicia Pearson, Braelyn

Binkowski, and Tina Winter

were victorious in a time

of 1 minute, 50.46 seconds.

Hagemaster (59.82) also

won the 100 backstroke.

Not bad for someone

who was not even on the

East swimming team last


“I played volleyball last

year and did not swim,” said

Hagemaster, who is a sophomore.

“But I just wanted

to swim. I’ve played volleyball

a long time, but also

swim club for the Academy

Bullets out of Aurora.

“I was really happy to

win the backstroke. I’ve

been working on my form

and getting a better sense

of the times. I like leading

off the medley relay with

the backstroke. My goal is

to get to state in the backstroke.

I just have to trust

the process that coach

Gabey has put in place.”

Hagemaster barely

missed All-Conference

honors in the 100 butterfly,

placing fifth (1:02.46), a

quarter of a second out of


In the 200 individual

medley, the Griffins had

the second and third place

finishers in Binkowski

(2:16.04) and Pearson

(2:16.23). They also had the

second and third place finishers

in the 50 free in Winter

(24.95) and Cali Burns


Lexi Disera (1:00.13)

was second for East in

the 100 butterfly. Winter

(54.37) placed second in the

100 free.

The Griffins relay team of

Pearson, Disera, Binkowski,

and Burns (1:42.28) took

second in the 200 free relay.

In the 400 free relay, it was

Hagemaster, Julia Ward,

Abbey Piech and Winter

(3:44.78) finishing second

by less than a second.


Binkowski (1:00.51)

was third in the backstroke.

Placing fourth for East was

Piech (2:05.55) in the 200


The diving competition

was held the night before,

on Friday, Nov. 1, at Homewood-Flossmoor.


East had a pair of All-Conference


They were Kate Mitchell

(2nd, 400.75) and Reese

Kubik steps in as Griffins roll in playoff opener


STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

Connor Kubik did not

want his opportunity to take

over as the lead running

back for Lincoln-Way East

to come about the way that it

did, but the junior was ready

to step up when called upon.

After senior Devon Williams

was injured on the

first play from scrimmage,

Kubik rose to the occasion

by running for 141 yards

on 14 carries as the Griffins

cruised to a 40-0 win over

Plainfield South in their

Class 8A playoff opener Friday,

Nov. 1.

East (10-0) now awaits a

second-round game against

Notre Dame (8-2)

“I couldn’t believe that

[Williams] went down on

the first play,” Kubik said.

“It was terrible. But I was

excited to play.

“I knew I had to step up

and take over his role. He’s

a very good player so it’s

tough to take over that type

of role, but I just wanted to

get out there and do as much

as I could for the team.”

Williams was taken to a

nearby hospital after taking

a blow to his midsection.

East coach Rob Zvonar said

doctors wanted to check out

his status going forward was


Junior running back Jamal

Johnson was already

out with an injury, though

Zvonar said the Griffins

hope to have him back for

the second round.

In the meantime, Kubik

showed off his team’s depth

against Plainfield South (5-


“He’s a starter on most

teams, obviously,” Zvonar

said. “He’s only a junior,

so he’s going to play a lot

of football for us going forward.

When you can lose a

back of Devon’s quality and

have a kid like that come in

and do a heck of a job, that’s

a luxury.

“That’s just a kid paying

his dues, being patient.”

Kubik helped establish

East’s dominance early as

his first four runs went for

32, 10, 11 and 21 yards.

“When AJ [Henning],

Devon and Jamal were all

healthy at the same time,

[Kubik] was on our scout

team giving our defense

some great looks,” Zvonar

said. “To have a guy like that

on our scout team, we’re

blessed. We don’t take it for

granted and we’re thankful

to have kids like Connor

Kubik coming off the


Kubik said he has gained

confidence after getting

more chances to carry the

ball as the regular season


“After the first time I was

in, it started getting really

easy to get comfortable on

the field with my team, with

my offensive line and all of

them,” he said. “I love that

[East coaches] believe in me

and trust me with the ball

and know that I can get the

yards that we need.”

Henning, meanwhile, was

typically dynamic. He ran

teammates Mason Pierre-Antoine (left) and Max

for touchdowns of 5 and 6

yards and caught a 34-yard

scoring strike from Kyle

Quinn, all in the first half as

the Griffins took a 24-0 halftime


Henning finished with

six catches for 67 yards and

ran six times for 20 yards.

Quinn was 13-of-19 passing

for 115 yards and ran for a

3-yard score.

After Quinn’s touchdown

run, he hit Henning for a

two-point conversion pass

to make it 32-0 midway

through the third quarter.

A 3-yard touchdown run

from Chauncey Hicks, followed

by a two-point conversion

pass from Ty Slager

to Jack Tremblay, closed the

scoring in the fourth.

East’s defense, meanwhile,

was up to the challenge

against Plainfield

South’s option attack, holding

the Cougars to 154


“A team that runs option,

you just have to play to your

phase and do your job,” defensive

end Adrian Wilson


Over two-thirds of Plainfield

South’s yards came on

two plays in the third quarter:

a 55-yard run by Keith

Bronson and a 45-yard pass

from Nick Shultz to Jaylin


But the Griffins’ defense

stepped up to deny the Cougars

after both those plays.

First, they forced a turnover

on downs at the East 31.

Then, Matt Kordas came

down with an interception at

the Griffins’ 4.

Jameel Mukarram also

had an interception for East,

while Wilson came up with

three sacks.

“You just look one week

at a time,” Wilson said.

“You’re blessed that you

made it this far, and you just

keep going.”

Cross Country

LW East boys, Guderjan advance to state meet


steve millar/22nd century



three notes on

the CLASS 3A cross

country state finals

1. Among the favorites

LW East senior

Brett Gardner and

LW Central senior

Jared Kreis (above)

are two of the top

contenders in the

boys race. Gardner

has the second best

top time in the state

this year and Kreis

the fourth.

2. Rivalry will continue

Gardner and Kreis

have been friends

and foes, and it will

continue in college.

Kreis is heading to

Duke, while Gardner

will run for ACC rival

North Carolina State.

3. Girls to watch

The LW Central girls

team will compete

at state. Merrigan

Allen and Rachel

Baumgartner are

a formidable duo

at the front for

the Knights. Kate

Guderjan qualified

for LW East.

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

While Lincoln-Way East knew

it had one of the state’s top runners

in senior Brett Gardner, uncertainty

surrounded the rest of the team and

expectations were lowered due to

the youth on the roster.

The Griffins, though, continued to

improve throughout the season and

ran their best race at the Class 3A

Normal Sectional on Saturday, Nov.

2, at Maxwell Park.

East finished fifth to punch its

ticket to the state meet Saturday,

Nov. 9, at Detweiller Park in Peoria.

“I’m beyond proud,” Gardner

said. “Going into the season, we

thought there was no way it was

happening. We thought it was going

to be an individual year.

“But training went really well.

The young guys have done great.

Guys came out of their shells athletically

and as people. We saw huge

growth from everyone on the team

in general. I’m super glad I can be a

part of this.”

Gardner (2nd, 15 minutes, 1.1

second), Nolan Rogers (15th,

15:49.59), Gerry Cushing (39th,

16:26.33), Justin Falejczyk (59th,

16:42.2) and Nolan Enright (64th,

16:44.14) contributed for the Griffins.

Rogers is a sophomore, and Cushing

and Falejczyk are freshmen.

“It’s nice to have a guy like Brett

running in front, obviously, but the

rest of the guys are so interchangeable

that if one guy has a tough race,

someone else steps up,” East coach

Ross Widinski said. “These guys

earned this, for sure.

“Outside of Brett, it’s a really

young team. We were on the outside

looking in and the guys ran their tails

Lincoln-Way East’s Brett Gardner heads down the final stretch at the

Class 3A Normal Sectional on Saturday, Nov. 2, at Maxwell Park. He

finished second and helped the Griffins qualify for state as a team.

qualifier for the state meet.

off. I’m really proud of them.”

After beating his friend and rival,

Lincoln-Way Central’s Jared Kreis,

at the SouthWest Suburban meet

and the Andrew Regional, Gardner

settled for second at the sectional.

Kreis pulled away to win by 22

seconds in 14:38.65.

“Obviously, it was good to race

with Brett and I made a move up the

hill and I think that kind of cracked

him a little bit,” Kreis said. “It was

a good race on my end, and he ran

well, too.

“Individually, it was just a nice fitness

test right before the state meet.”

Kreis helped the Knights advance

to state as a team for the second time

in three years. Central (117 points)

finished third behind Minooka (70)

and Yorkville (104). Edwardsville

(143) and East (161) rounded out the

team qualifiers.

Gardner was just fine with the

runner-up finish.

“[Widinski] told me not to worry

too much about that one spot, relax,

take it in and stay second,” Gardner

said. “Jared executed really well.

He’s fit right now.

“I’m pretty excited for state. I’ve

got big plans.”

Gardner is especially excited that

his teammates will also be there.

“I was just sitting on the bus waiting,

hoping,” he said. “It was such a

relief when we found out we made

it. It’s a really cool thing.”

In the girls race, Lincoln-Way

East sophomore Kate Guderjan

(25th, 19:08.69) made it to state as

the final individual qualifier.

“I thought I had no chance,” she

said. “I was really upset after. Then

I went over there, my name was the

last one circled [as a qualifier], and I

gave my family a big hug.”

Guderjan missed the Andrew

Regional with a foot injury but was

able to shake off the rust and finish

strong at the sectional.

“They thought I had a stress fracture

in my left foot, but we’re good,”

she said. “It’s not a stress fracture

and I felt good this race.”

The Griffins (239) finished eighth

as Hallie Hoger (42nd, 19:44.05),

Olivia Jacobs (45th, 19:48.99),

Emma Roberts (56th, 20:02.5) and

Tori Tverdek (86th, 20:57.93) also


Guderjan is looking forward to


“I’ve never been, so I don’t know

what to expect,” she said. “My goal

is to just to get a [personal record]

and I have no real expectations other

than that. I just want to have fun and

see how it goes.”

“Once we joined track, it felt good to be a part of something and to have something

to do every day.”
