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 on

Oct. 30 to honor the band’s

achievements over the past

year and to acknowledge

the individuals involved

with the band.

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. 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.

“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 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.

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 Lincoln-Way community

is one of the most

supportive communities of

the fine arts I’ve ever experienced,”

Barnish said. “To

PROTECTION FOR WHAT’S NOW, AND WHAT’S NEXT

achievements of the past year. Carly Styka/22nd Century Media

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 special.”

The band’s achievements

were made possible by the

members’ hard work and

perseverance.

“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

said.

This seemed to ring true

as the students cheered

throughout the celebration.

Students watched a photo

montage of the season’s

best moments and a video

of a LWMB performance

during this season’s competition

with glowing commentary

from the judges.

Johnson thanked each

group involved with the

band, such as the student

leaders, crew, parents and

bus drivers. The seniors

were acknowledged invited

on stage to receive an

award.

To close out the night,

the seniors led the crowd in

singing LW’s alma mater.

“This is the best Lincoln-

Way band we’ve ever had,”

Johnson said.

welcomed home by family

Major Norm Mitchell holds hands with his wife,

Akena, as they are greeted by three of their children

while being welcomed home at his parents’ house in

Manhattan. Hugging his leg is son Randall, 4, hugging

Akena is daughter River, 2, and daughter, Reese.

A member of New Lenox

CERT was going to miss

an important training day.

Phillia Mitchell, of Manhattan,

had a good reason: her

son, Marine Major Norm

Mitchell III, was coming

home.

“I would be [there] but

I have the most important

event going on, welcoming

my son home,” she said.

Phillia has been on the

CERT team for five years

and is also on the New

Lenox Search and Rescue

team.

“On the CERT team,

we’re trained for disasters

and on search and rescue,

we search for lost and missing

people,” Phillia said.

“When there are a lot of

people needing immediate

help, they train us to go out

and triage. Whatever the

need is.”

She and husband, Norman

II, raised their sons

the same way. They have

another son in the Marines.

“My son grew up in Mokena,”

Phillia said. “When

he was 15, we moved

to New Lenox. I homeschooled

my kids through

high school.”

As Phillia was speaking

about the history of her son,

veterans from the American

Legion Post 935 in Manhattan

arrived at the Mitchell

home, now in Manhattan.

“I’m happy for my son

and his wife Akena, and

their six kids,” she said.

After 20 years and a dozen

moves, they will be settling

down in Colorado

Major Norm Mitchell,

USMC, is retiring. Approximately

40 friends, neighbors

and family members

came to Manhattan to welcome

him home and thank

him for his service.

“It’s been quite a journey,

the whole Marine Corps

life,” Phillia said. “He has

been to Iraq, Afghanistan

and numerous deployments

as well as flying in the F18

fighter jets. It was scary for

us and his family, but he

loved flying. It’s been so

many years it’s hard for me

to see him not in the Marine

Corps.”

Her other son, Eric, is

also a Marine.

“Today, it’s kind of a

happy feeling but it’s also a

sad feeling because we love

the military and we love our

country and I’m so proud of

them for serving and keeping

us free,” Phillia said.

Several vehicles came

driving down Butler Road

in Manhattan, horns beeping.

Friends and Family

ran to the edge of the street

waving American flags.

Tears in her eyes, and

holding her grand daughter,

River, Phillia waved her

flag as she watched her son

stop in front of their home.

“I’m so touched by the

Illinois Patriot Guard,

the Color Guard from the

American Legion, neighbors

who came out to welcome

him home,” she said.

“When your kids are appreciated

for what you think is

a good thing, it’s an added

bonus.”

Norm stepped out holding

hands with his wife Akena

and was greeted with

hugs from his children.

“The military calls 20

years a milestone,” Norm

said to the crowd. “... It’s

a milestone I feel I have

not confidently crossed,

it’s a milestone that I’ve

stumbled across gasping

for breath with far better

men than I am. I have been

so fortunate that I have a

phenomenal family who

stood by me through difficult

circumstances. I’ve

been fortunate to find an

environment in the Marine

Corps that is lucky for me.

Sold-out painting party

benefits LWSRA programs

Kyle LaHucik

Freelance Reporter

Wine, painting and a

good time made for the

perfect mixture for a soldout

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 LWSRA 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.

“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 together.”

Terrie Murphy, a codirector

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

Sweezer (bottom left) get their boards ready for an

afternoon of painting. The two athletes play for the

LWSRA wheelchair basketball team, whose first

tournament is Nov. 9. Kyle LaHucik/22nd Century Media

in LWSRA programs for

nearly 25 years.

“Keith is a great guy,”

Buck said.

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 LWSRA

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 holiday-themed

ones, as well.

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 LWS-

RA 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.

New Lenox Toastmasters celebrate 10 years of improving public speaking

Sean Hastings, Editor

It’s a fear that many have:

public speaking. For whatever

reason for some people,

who may be confident

in just about every aspect

of their lives, all bets are off

when they step foot in front

of a group of people.

Am I rocking back and

forth? Yep. Are my hands

shaking? Yep. Now I’m

talking way too fast — time

to slow down. How often

am I saying “like,” “um,”

or “you know?” Where am

I at in my speech? This is a

trainwreck.

Those are just some

of the usual suspects for

someone uncomfortable

giving a speech.

But for the last 10 years,

the New Lenox Toastmasters

have helped countless

people get over their fear

— no matter what it may be

— and turn into confident,

almost fearless speakers.

What the group has done

has allowed people to not

have a million thoughts

race through their brain

while they talk and begin

honing in on certain skills.

This is true for current

president Martha Sojka.

She joined the Toastmasters

in June of 2017,

worked into a PR role in

2018 and said she has seen

herself grow immensely in

just two years. The group

celebrated its 10-year anniversary

at its meeting on

Oct. 26.

“I said this morning [at

the meeting] that my heart

would pound if I had to

speak in front of anybody,”

she said. “I had physical

reactions where my hands

would shake and as soon as

you recognize your hands

are shaking, that just adds

to the anxiety. Within two

years, I’m up there — I still

have issues with skill sets

not quite there — but just

the ability to go up there in

front of a crowd has been a

game changer for me.”

It has allowed her to begin

to find the “authentic

voice” everyone looks for,

she said.

One of Sojka’s fears,

probably like most people,

was being out in the open

giving a speech. That was

also one of the tips noted at

the meeting — that people

should try to avoid speaking

behind a podium if

possible.

Speaking behind a podium

is a “safe space” for

some. That fixture comes

up just below ones chest

and gives separation to

them and the crowd. Once

they are out in the open, it

can change things.

But this allows the

crowd to see the speaker

better, connect with them

better, as well as adding

E Club President of the Year 2018-2019 Award with

movements to the speech.

which allows the speaker

to address both sides of the

room.

Another person whose

job puts them into public

speaking situations is Mokena

Police Chief Steve

Vaccaro.

Vaccaro attended a

Toastmasters meeting in

Alexandria, Virginia in

2012 while he was there

attending the FBI National

Academy. He said he really

enjoyed it, but it took

him until 2018 to become a

member of the New Lenox

group.

Vaccaro has been refining

some areas of his public

speaking.

“A lot of it [for me] is

focus,” he said. “Sticking

with the topic at hand and

generating enough interest

from the audience.”

The New Lenox Toastmasters

fall under the umbrella

of the International

group and a year into Sojka’s

time with the group

a new educational system

was implemented.

It is a pathway system

— 11 different ones — that

allow people to customize

their speaking goals.

“You start with an assessment

and that gives

you an idea of what pathway

would be appropriate

for you,” Sojka said. “We

have speakers here that

want to be motivational

speakers, and some that

are coaches and want to be

a better coach, and some at

work have to be team leaders

and want to learn how

to lead a group. Each pathway

is geared toward what

they want to do.”

The group has a pathway

goal board that allows

everyone to actually see

their personal goals and

recognize when they meet

them.

“It keeps you engaged,

committed and dedicated,”

Sojka said. “If you

do something that is fearbased,

it’s easy to say ‘I’m

done. That was fun for once

but I don’t want anymore.’

Once you’re engaged and

see yourself progressing,

it’s hard to leave then. ‘I

want that third level, or that

fifth level.’”

Vaccaro also enjoys the

diversity the group has.

“We all have our own

unique talents and we are a

dynamic and unique group

and everyone has their

own skill,” he said. “I’ve

learned something from

everyone. We’re very close

knit, we all learn and we’re

not afraid to offer ideas for

improvement in areas.”

Different roles are filled

at each meeting including

general evaluator, grammarian,

invocation, joke

master and more.

The best part for Sojka

is the meetings are a safe

space that makes everyone

feel comfortable.

The supportive environment

is clear. People clap

2

before and after speeches,

give high fives and compliment

each other afterword.

Speakers are evaluated

at the end, which are meant

to help people reach their

next level. They are not

critical, rather evaluations

that simply note the good

and the parts that need to

be worked on.

Guests are always welcome

to sit in on a meeting

and see how it works. Sojka

encourages people that

have strong communication

skills to come in to see

what else they can learn to

be even better.

“If you’re going to do it

anywhere, this is the place

to do it,” she said. “Mess

up here where everyone

is OK with it because we

all do it and have done it.

The mentorship is great. It

becomes part of your life.

Knowing that they want to

better themselves, this is a

good place.”

“It’s very structured,”

Vaccaro added. “If we

didn’t have that, what

would our goal be? This

offers you a path to follow

and reach your goal. Once

you complete one, no one

says you can’t complete

another.”

From Page 4

I was created by people

that care deeply about our

country and about making

me better than I was the

day before. I’m fortunate to

have all of you, this is more

than I deserve. The credit

goes to my family and to

the people whose shoulder

I was standing on.”

Norm has flown in over

100 combat missions.

When he was in college, he

knew that military intelligence

was a better stepping

stone. He took a test for a

Naval flight officer to open

up his options.

“This is overwhelming,”

he said. “My previous posting

was at Camp Pendleton

three years ago. The Marines

decided I needed to

get some culture so they

sent me to the Air Force.”

Norm will officially retire

in January 2020.

“I’m going to miss the

people,” he said. “During

hardships, you form some

pretty strong bonds. When

you work with people that

are committed to you, to

holding you to a high standard

and always having my

back means a lot.”

At the end of November,

the Mitchell family will

move to Colorado Springs

and Norm will return to college

to study business.

“I still plan on serving

my country in other ways,”

he said. “The Marines do a

lot of humanitarian work. It

was an absolute honor and

privilege to serve in the Marine

Corps. I consider life to

be pursuit, something you

never succeed at. Any ideal

you strive for is always out

of reach, which is a good

thing.”

As the celebration dwindled

down, Norm gave one

last comment.

“A lot of people talk

about military service and

associate it with sacrifice,”

he began. “Part of the reason

I’m uncomfortable

with gatherings like this is

because I feel I have not

sacrificed that much. There

are others who have given

their lives, given up limbs

and had more difficulty

than I’ve had to face. I’m

not a religious person but I

look at Jesus Christ as the

one who made the ultimate

sacrifice which serves as an

ideal for that. If I can pursue

a life that Jesus exemplified,

I will be a happy man.”

New Lenox Village Board

8

Discussions continue, opinions still split on potential NL dispensary

Jessie Molloy

Freelance Reporter

The New Lenox Village

Board heard comments

from the public regarding

the legalization of recreational

cannabis for the

third time at its meeting,

Oct. 28 with residents still

split on the issue.

Monday night was the

last meeting scheduled

before the board will vote

on the ordinance to opt-out

on Nov. 11. Nine people

spoke at the meeting, five

in favor of allowing the

sale of recreational cannabis

in the village, and four

in opposition. One of the

speakers in favor of allowing

the sale was Edward

Gal, who is requesting permission

to open a dispensary

if the board votes to

allow sales.

Gal thanked the board

for “providing more opportunity

for discourse” on the

issue than any other city he

has talked with in the south

and western suburbs, and

argued that “New Lenox

needs to do what’s best for

New Lenox.”

“I know a lot of the

people arguing against

this have said you need

to stand with other neighboring

communities who

have opted out, but that

should not have anything

to do with this,” he said.

He also noted that his

proposed location is in an

industrial area which has

had vacant properties for

10 years, and that there

has been “little to no uptick

in crime” in Colorado

towns with similar demographics

to New Lenox

which allowed recreational

dispensaries to open.

Still, opponents argued

that the legalization would

create safety and crime issues,

citing drug abuse and

increased rates of DUI in

other states. “I don’t want

truckers coming off of

I-80 in their 18-wheelers

to make drug purchases in

our town,” argued Marilyn

Gallagher.

“People argue that

drinking is just as dangerous

and we have bars in

New Lenox, but I don’t

know a single marijuana

user who can limit themselves

to using once or

twice a month like people

can go to bars,” she added.

“I don’t think I’m better

than people who use

marijuana, but I do think I

make smarter decisions.”

Vince Schilke, by contrast

argued that little will

change and the purchases

will be safer, since marijuana

is already easily acquired

on the black market.

“I went to Carl Sandburg

High School,” he said. “As

a freshman, I could have

gotten pot much easier

than I could alcohol and

there are liquor stores on

every corner.”

Three other residents,

John Fisher, Dawn Rinchiuso

and Donna Fisher

who rely on medical cannabis

argued in favor of the

legalization to make acquiring

the drug easier for

current medical patients

and for those who would

be unable to receive medical

cannabis because their

conditions are not covered

under Illinois’ medical program.

“I’m here today as a recovering

opioid addict,”

Rinchiuso said. “My doctor

had me on 100 milligrams

of Oxycodone a

day for pain. Needless to

say, I was a zombie and I

thought I was going to die

of an overdose.

“I got another doctor to

get me into detox for three

days and get me a medical

marijuana prescription,”

she continued. “I finally

feel like myself again, but

I still owe money for the

treatment. Had I had access

to recreational cannabis,

I don’t think I’d have

needed to go through what

I did.”

Finally, Jane Corradetti

argued that she opposes

allowing a dispensary “on

behalf of children.”

“Even though it’s only

sold to adults, if we say it’s

medicine or it’s legal, then

teens and children will

think it must be safe,” she

said. “In every state that

has legalized it, the perception

of harms amongst

teens have decreased. I

was disappointed when the

state approved it, because

it is not sending a positive

message to our children.”

“This is not about good

or bad people,” Mayor Tim

Baldermann noted when all

the residents had finished

speaking. “This is about

our opinions on something

controversial that is

going to be legal anyway.

There are good people on

both sides of this argument

here, and it seems to be

very evenly split, so it will

be impossible to please everyone.”

The public will have one

final chance to speak on

the issue before the vote at

the Nov. 11 meeting. Since

the default position of the

state law legalizes the use

and sale of cannabis, in order

to opt out the ordinance

has to be written banning

the sales in the village. If

the ordinance fails, the sale

will be legalized. If it passes,

sales will be prohibited

within the village boundaries,

however, the private

use of cannabis products in

residents’ own homes will

still be legal.

Other business

In addition to the cannabis

discussion, the board

held a public hearing and

first read of an amendment

to the annexation agreement

of the Calistoga development’s

units two and

three.

New Lenox to host forum on risks with vaping

Sean Hastings, Editor

The Village of New

Lenox and its Safe Communities

America Coalition,

in partnership with

Lincoln-Way School District

210, is hosting a forum

titled “Vaping: Understanding

the Hazards and Risks.”

The event will be held

7-8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov.

14, in the auditorium at

Lincoln-Way West High

Broker - Management Team

“10”

School.

Mayor Tim Baldermann

will provide opening remarks

for the event. Following

the mayor’s opening

remarks, the featured

panelists include, Dr. Aaron

Weiner, PhD – Licensed

Clinical Psychologist and

Director of Addiction Services

at Linden Oaks Behavioral

Health, Alpesh

Patel – Epidemiologist,

Will County Health Department,

Ruby Johnson –

parent of teen hospitalized

with vaping-related illness.

Ruby’s daughter, Piper,

was hospitalized. Piper

was having difficulty

breathing, admitted to vaping

and eventually ended

up in the emergency room

the day she was supposed

to be moving into college.

Ruby said at that time,

she would be looking into

having an event like this

for other parents and teens

to learn the risks so that no

one else would have to go

through what her daughter

did.

The reason for the forum

comes after the vapingrelated

illnesses that have

swept the nation, including

three deaths in Illinois.

Dan Martin, safe community

coordinator said

attendees will get good

information from all the

speakers.

He also admires the work

Ruby has done — turning

a negative experience to

helping raise awareness.

FROM THE TINLEY JUNCTION

Creative Cakes decorators

take second place at

international competition

It was two days of intense,

fast-paced competition,

and Ashley Spitzer

and Robbyn Yuen proved

to their fellow cake decorators

that they deserved to

be there.

Representing Creative

Cakes in Tinley Park, the

duo placed second overall

out of six teams at the

The Pillsbury Bakers’ Plus

Grand Champion Creative

Decorating Competition

held Sept. 7-9 in Las Vegas

in conjunction with

the International Baking

Industry Expo.

This was the second

year that Yuen, a Tinley

Park resident, and Spitzer,

a resident of Midlothian,

competed together —

placing second last year in

Atlantic City.

During the first day of

competition, the pair made

a rolled fondant cake and

sculpted cake, and the second

day they made a wedding

cake and a “surprise”

cake, which was a threeteir

buttercream cake that

was announced to them

when they arrived the day

before.

As a result of their

scores, the duo won

$4,000 collectively, which

they split.

“We just want to really

build awareness of Creative

Cakes,” Spitzer said.

“I’ve worked here for 13

years and this is my place

and I couldn’t imagine

myself working at any other

bakery, honestly.”

FROM THE LOCKPORT LEGEND

LTHS Marching Band

wins Class 6A state

championship in Normal

Sound the horns: the

winners of the Class 6A

2019 Illinois State Marching

Band Championship

are back in town.

The Saturday night

lights were shining on the

Lockport Township High

School marching band Oct.

19 at Illinois State University.

Competing in Class

6A, the division which

houses the largest schools,

the LTHS band and its 175

members claimed first,

along with supplemental

awards for General Effect

and Crowd Appeal.

The win marks their

third championship this

decade, with the two others

coming in 2013 and

2015. The 2019 group’s

show is called “Tribe,”

which features compositions

from Nick Phoenix

and Thomas Bergersen.

“Most of our shows before

were bright and colorful;

this year we went for

a darker and more unique

take on the music,” said

Rileigh Rubar, an alto sax

player in her third year

with the marching band.

Citing the leadership of

Covey, she said, “Our program

has become stronger,

and we’re far more unified.”

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

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 “seamless.”

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

communities’

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.

FROM THE FRANKFORT STATION

Memorable track careers

helped LW East twins

adjust to life in America

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, though, 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 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.

Both twins earned All-

State honors this past

spring in Charleston. Ibukun

competed on the state

runner-up 1,600-meter relay

team, and the twins ran

together on the All-State

800 relay team.

FROM THE HOMER HORIZON

Make-A-Wish gives

Disney trip to first-grader

at Young School

After being diagnosed

with bone cancer in September

2018, Trevor Daley,

6, faced a long road to

recovery. He kept in good

spirits the whole time, his

parents said, and he never

asked for much — other

than to go on the trip of his

dreams.

Trevor, a first-grader at

Young School, got to go

to Disneyland this Halloween

season.

He went through nine

months of proton therapy

before officially being declared

as in remission.

“Through the whole

process of recovery, Trevor

stayed positive,” said

his father, John. “He never

let it get the best of him.”

A former teacher at

Young, Terra Nichele

is now involved in the

Make-A-Wish Foundation

and reached out to

Trevor and his family.

After beating cancer this

past June, Trevor’s wish

was granted. The Disney

trip was set in motion for

late October.

“Make-A-Wish came by

when he was still doing

treatment,” John said. “We

knew the trip was going to

come; we just wanted to

give it time after the treatment.”

In anticipation of Trevor’s

trip, students and

staff at Young planned a

special parade for him before

school on the morning

of Oct. 25. He was

picked up by police and a

SWAT armored truck from

his house and escorted

to school, where he was

greeted by his classmates,

teachers and a few special

guests, including Batman

and Mickey and Minnie

Mouse.

FROM THE ORLAND PARK PRAIRIE

Scare today, gone

tomorrow: Custodian

transforms school

overnight for Halloween

When students at Liberty

School leave the building

on Oct. 30 every year,

they start to see hints of

what custodian Bill Pluta

has done there for Halloween

the past five years. It’s

not until Halloween morning,

though, that anyone

but Pluta truly understands

the scope of it. And by

Nov. 1, it vanishes as if it

was never there.

Pluta — on his own time

and his own dime — this

year outfitted the elementary

school with roughly

40 inflatables, which could

be found arching over each

entryway, in the multipurpose

room and around

the gymnasium/lunchroom.

Keeping in mind

the students there run from

grades 3-5, some of the

displays — which include

animatronics and ghosts

that zip on wires overhead

— provide little scares but

include no gore.

“I keep things fun,” Pluta

said.

The piece de resistance

is a graveyard scene

tucked into a corner near

the multipurpose room.

There, bat props hang

overhead, a vulture rests

on a perch, an inflatable

tree is haunted by ghosts,

and several other haunts

both spook and delight the

students who pass it.

“The graveyard is just

cool,” Pluta says with

pride.

High school football is a special game

Sean Hastings

sean@newlenoxpatriot.com

I

just finished up my

second year of covering

high school football,

primarily Lincoln-

Way West. Being six years

out of playing high school

football myself, it’s weird

how seeing the final play

as time expired to beat

Lincoln-Way West and

end its season stopped me

in my tracks.

I have no hand in the

risks related to vaping. In

addition, the panelists will

discuss the types of vaping

that teens and adults are

doing. As well as:

• Share personal stories

about those affected by

lung illness associated with

vaping.

• Provide Will County

game, no family playing

on the team, but I still

feel for those kids that

saw their season end in

the blink of an eye. That’s

how it goes. The nine

weeks of the season go

by quicker than you think

and then the playoffs can

come and go, too.

It’s hard not to feel for

those kids and be involved

in the excitement of the

game. I’m there for work,

but an exciting sports

game is an exciting sports

game and heartbreak loss

is a heartbreak loss.

Covering that game, I

was in disbelief that the

final pass as time expired

was caught. The players

froze, the fans froze

and even I froze and all I

could say is “wow.”

The players will be

over it in a couple weeks,

In addition to the presentation

at 7 p.m., the Will

County Health Department,

Linden Oaks Behavioral

Health, and HERO

(Heroin Epidemic Relief

Organization) will have

informational tables set-up

for guests to visit. These

organizations will have

information and literature

on vaping to share with

guests from 6:30-7 p.m. in

the atrium just outside the

auditorium.

There will also be vaping

devices on display for

parents to see the different

looks of them,

maybe once the playoffs

come to an end and a

champion is crowned, but

the loss does sting. I wrote

an editorial at the beginning

of the season talking

about the special bond

there is on a high school

football team.

Some of them will go

on to play other sports

with a different group,

some are coming up

through the program still,

but some are graduating,

ending their high school

football career.

From the time the game

ended, no more than 15

minutes went by until the

Warriors walked off the

field and into the locker

room before getting on the

bus. Just like that, a season

comes and goes, but

for those 10 weeks, it’s

some of the most exciting

for those players on the

team and their parents.

The reactions and

emotions after that game

showed how much high

school football really

means. The toughest guys

on the team even have

tears in their eyes. There

is just something about

high school football.

The NLPD teamed up

with New Lenox School

District 122 to “impress

good character and

helping others.”

Nelson Prairie thirdgrader

Brooke Martenz has

that figured out. Whether it

is telling her father to pay

for the person behind them

in the drive-thru, or buying

hot chocolate for the

school’s crossing guards

during the winter, 8-yearold

Brooke is always looking

out for others.

So why would the coat

drive be any different?

“I heard about the coat

drive and I just wanted to

help people so they can

stay warm in the winter,”

Brooke said.

Brooke collected 115

coats in 26 days. She went

around her neighborhood

asking if people wanted to

donate to the coat drive and

when it was time to bring

in the coats, she got in the

truck with her grandpa Tom

Cellini and went around

picking up the bags of coats

off people’s doorsteps.

She also gave everyone

who donated a hand-written

thank you card.

“I was all for it,” said her

mother, Keri. “We were

excited and I remember 24

for some reason. ‘We have

24 coats.’ And then we

asked when we were going

to hit 50 and then she

hit 50 and the next thing

you know, ‘oh my gosh

Brooke, you’re going to hit

100 coats.’”

Brooke takes the bus to

school most days, so when

the day came to drop off a

bulk of the coats, grandpa

had to drive her to school.

Police Officer Paul Simon,

who also is the school

resource officer, assisted

with the coat drive and was

at Nelson Prairie the day

Brooke and Cellini dropped

off some of the coats.

“I pulled up next to him, I

parked illegally next to him

at the school and he kind of

just looked at me and said

‘Do you have coats?’ and

I said this makes 105. He

couldn’t believe it,” Cellini

said.

“Paul Simon, he’s a

phenomenal guy. He’s a

life-changer for the kids. I

watched her face when he

was talking to her and she

was so into what he was

telling her and explaining

to her about taking care of

one another. It was crazy.”

And if there is one person

who preaches taking care

of one another more than

Brooke, it’s Simon, who

has become best known

for teaching the spirit of

Aloha, having spent time in

Hawaii.

Simon added that he was

excited to see that Brooke

took what she learned in

her classroom about being

supportive of one another

and truly lived it.

And to help with that,

Simon always has seashells

on him that he bought

and gives to the students.

Brooke already collects

shells on her own, so that

was extra special.

Brooke said she had not

had a chance to officially

meet Simon until that day,

but their encounter was

overwhelming for Simon.

“I thanked her and explained

that she was an

inspiration to us and the

school and PD,” Simon

said. “We hadn’t see that

level of dedication from

any individual student. It

was the first time I had seen

it at that level.”

That dedication earned

Brooke a trip to the police

station — for good reasons.

“I got a lot of ‘thank

yous,’” she said. “They

said they were really proud

of me.”

She also wrote thank you

cards to Simon and Deputy

Chief Louis Alessandrini.

“Just looking at the card

now, I will keep it forever,”

Simon said. “I’ve been an

officer for almost 22 years

and I’ve seen good and

bad and this is exactly why

I love this job. You can’t

look at something like this

and not smile.”

But Brooke is no stranger

to kind gestures.

Another moment of inspiration

for Cellini came

when Brooke said she

wanted to light a candle for

her other grandpa, who she

never really got to meet, at

The Grotto at the University

of Notre Dame. The

Grotto is a place where

people can reflect and light

candles for loved ones.

Brooke and her family

were at Notre Dame because

when she’s not busy

collecting coats, she spends

four-to-seven nights a week

swimming. Four of those

practicing and sometimes

three meets a week.

She said Notre Dame is

her favorite place she has

swam.

She’s been swimming

for three years — six seasons

— and can outswim

everyone in her family,

including Cellini, who she

beat in a race this summer.

Brooke hated swimming

when she first started, Keri

said. Brooke swims with

the Lincoln-Way Gators.

And as excited as Brooke

was to talk about how much

she loved swimming, that

same smile and excitement

resonated as she talked

about helping people with

the coat drive this winter.

And with winter on its

way — already here, actually

— there are 115 people

in the area who are going

to be able to stay warm because

of her.

Cellini was with her

every step of the way, including

the morning visit

to NLPD. He said he’s a

pretty tough guy — he’s

cried at a few funerals —

but admitted that Brooke

makes him tear up four or

five times a week with what

comes out of her mouth.

“At 8 years old she’s doing

this,” he said. “I was

Brooke Martenz, 8, poses for a photo with officer Paul

Simon the day she dropped off coats at Nelson Prairie

for the Cops Care Coat Drive. Photo Submitted

talking to her. She’s got

it made. She’s got good

parents, her dad is a hardworking

man. I told her,

‘Can you imagine having

it where mom and dad

There’s no cost to you!

(855) 864-1539

! We’re paid by our partner communities

can’t buy you a coat? Some

kid, some man and some

lady are going to get these

coats and they are going to

be warm.’ It’s amazing. ...

She’s my best bud.”

Members of the Lincoln-Way Chorale rehearse part of their performance on Oct. 21

led by Elise’ Greene. The group is preparing for its performance Nov. 17, which will

celebrate 25 years since being founded. Lee Cruz/22nd Century Media

The Lincoln-Way Area

Chorale is diligently preparing

for its annual holiday

concert, titled “Silver

Sounds of the Season” as

the organization is celebrating

its 25th anniversary

this year.

The chorale is comprised

of more than 80

members and is led under

the direction of Artistic

Director Elise’ Greene.

On certain selections at

the concert, the group will

be joined in song by the

children’s choirs from St.

Francis of Assisi Church

in Orland Park and St. Anthony’s

Church in Frankfort,

and will receive string

and wind instrument accompaniment

from band

members of the three Lincoln-Way

High Schools.

Some of the musical selections

will include “The

Christmas Song,” “I’ll Be

Home for Christmas,” “It’s

the Most Wonderful Time

of the Year,” “Joy to the

World,” “Shepherd’s Pipe

Carol,” “Angelic Christmas

Fanfare,” “Jingle Bells,”

“God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,”

“Canticle of Winter,”

“Christmas Bells,”

“Christmas on Broadway,”

“Winter Wind,”

“Have Yourself a Merry

Little Christmas,” “O Holy

Night,” and “Silent Night.”

As Greene leads the

chorale through rehearsal,

one can easily recognize

the high level of enthusiasm

that she has for serving

in that role. She keeps

the members on task and

the session moving fluidly.

When she stops to improve

the group’s pronunciation

of a word, transition between

lines, or pace during

a portion of a song, she

shares clear examples that

help the members quickly

understand how to execute

those adjustments.

She is positive and encouraging

while aiding

the chorale in elevating

their skills, and she offers

affirmations when the

members produce good

results. She occasionally

reminds the group to demonstrate

good energy and

emotion through subtle facial

expressions and body

language, and she consistently

models that in the

way she carries herself

throughout the rehearsal.

She helps create a spirited

atmosphere by integrating

good-natured humor

throughout her instruction.

Her style generates a dynamic

that the chorale responds

to well and makes

the members eager to polish

their performance.

Representing more than

a dozen local towns, and

with an age range from

nearly 20 years old to nearly

90 years old, the chorale

has continually sustained a

healthy number of members

through the years

since its inception, and

participation is expected to

grow next year as several

community members have

expressed interest in joining

the group.

That is encouraging

news to Greene, who has

relished in her experience

directing the chorale.

Greene was selected as the

organization’s Artistic Director

last year after serving

as a music teacher for

38 years.

The position allows her

to continue involvement

in music and conducting,

which is one element that

she finds fulfilling. Moreover,

she considers the

relationships she builds

with the chorale members

extremely rewarding.

“I am really enjoying

getting to know so many

really beautiful people,”

she said. “The longer I’m

with them, the more I realize

how wonderful they

are. They’ve all come to

the group from a different

path or for a different reason,

and it’s really interesting

to hear their stories

of what led them here or

when they started to sing,”

Greene feels that a community

choir can provide

a meaningful experience

to its members beyond offering

an opportunity to

perform music. She noted

that, in today’s society

many people do not know

their own neighbors well

or at all, so an organization

like a community choir at

least gives them a chance

to connect with others who

reside in the local area on a

weekly basis.

“They know each others’

lives, they know each

others’ families, and they

become such dear friends,”

she said. “They share a love

of music and a love of singing.

When you go through

a performance experience

with somebody, there’s

something that bonds you

together in a really unique

way. So, besides the fact

that it’s all these people

coming together to create

this beautiful music and being

really satisfied on that

level, they’re also being

satisfied on a personal level

with involvement in this

choir community.”

With the whole chorale

rehearsing once a week and

the individual sections of

it practicing once a month

since mid-August, the

group has refined its performance

to produce a high

quality holiday program.

Greene said the chorale’s

dedicated effort is reflected

in the audiences’ reactions

to the performances.

“If they haven’t heard

us before, I think they’re

shocked,” Greene said.

“They’re not expecting

that kind of sound from

a community choir. It’s a

wonderful thing to hear.

Hopefully they’re very entertained.

To leave in a better

place than when they

came in, to leave feeling

uplifted, happy, and joyful:

that’s what they should

feel when they leave a

concert,” she stated.

The “Silver Sounds of

the Season” concert will

be performed on 3 p.m.,

Sunday, Nov. 17, at the

Lincoln-Way East High

School Fine Arts Auditorium,

201 Colorado Avenue,

Frankfort. Tickets are $18

for adults, $16 for seniors

and students, and at a special

rate for groups of 10

or more, and may be purchased

online at lwac.com

or via phone at (815) 469-

Be Brave Mom: Giving an attitude of gratitude

Rebecca Barker

Contributing Columnist

It’s that time of year

when you just completed

collecting too

much candy and the excitement

of Halloween has

dwindled like that very

large candy supply. Before

you begin to gear up for

Christmas, don’t forget to

be thankful.

As a mom there are

never enough minutes

in the day to get everything

done. When I begin

to think of the holiday

season, the to-do lists

collide into a mass stream

that rivals Santa Claus’

naughty and nice list.

But this month, we need

to pause and be grateful.

Instilling gratitude in kids

can also be daunting, but

if you make it fun, a little

inventory of appreciation

can be something to be

thankful for, too.

Each year we like to

decorate our playroom

walls with leaves and

write or draw whatever it

is we are thankful for on

them. It’s something we

do together at the end of

the year, so the kids make

some as well as mom and

dad. Animal toys, nights

with no homework and

bananas made the list

this year, but I also added

everyday appreciation

for jumping in leaves,

warm blanket snuggles

and movie marathons as a

family. I kept my gratefulness

for long nap times,

clean sheets and takeout

Harrison and Maya help decorate annual pumpkin pie.

Baking together is always something to be thankful for.

dinners to myself.

Of course being filled

with gratitude this time of

year is often accompanied

by the fullness of feasting.

Our family loves getting

together with extended

family to celebrate, commiserate

and eat. My

specialty dish is the pumpkin

pie and the kids love

to help me dream up the

silly or festive decorations

that adorn the top. Baking

together the day before

Thanksgiving is definitely

a family tradition, and we

never forget to serve it up

with extra Cool Whip on

top.

Keeping with an attitude

of gratitude, our family

combines all the fun by

making a Christmas fun

list to include collecting

food for our local New

Lenox Township Food

Pantry and making our

annual donations to Toys

for Tots.

New Lenox Township

Food Pantry, 1100

S. Cedar Road, accepts

donations year round; you

can call (815) 485-6431

for more information or

visit newlenox.org/familyservices.

I helped my

son’s classroom run a food

drive through the month

of December to donate

last year. Toys for Tots accepts

new unwrapped toys

Nov. 1 through Dec. 5. We

usually choose to pick up

toys at a local store and

drop them off at the New

Lenox Fire Department on

Route 30, soon followed

by a celebration of hot

chocolate.

This year we are also

going to participate in Big

Brothers Big Sisters of

Will County Adopt a Family

program, where you

can contact BBBSWC to

match you with a family

of your size and budget

to provide gifts for the

holiday. The program runs

from Nov. 1 through Dec.

9, and you can sign up

anytime by calling (815)

723-2227. This program

combines some of my

favorite holiday activities,

giving back, shopping and

wrapping.

BBBSWC also is accepting

sponsor donors for

their Breakfast with Santa

program to ensure all kids

have a gift this holiday

season. Both programs

focus on toys and needs

for the kids to ensure that

donations are both fun and

helpful. I am looking forward

to shopping with my

kids to pick out just the

right gifts and starting off

our holiday season with an

attitude of gratitude.

Sometimes the adventure

your most thankful

for is the lesson you as

a mom are able to instill

in your kids. Never be

afraid to try a little extra

kindness and spread more

love than worry, be brave

mom, it’s worth it.

I’m Rebecca Barker… mom

of two, wife and writer. I’ve

lived in New Lenox most of

my life and excited to share

some of the adventures that

go along with being a mom.

A trip to the bank so my

Without all my notes, I

Notes on my table, my

On my fridge, in my car,

The Dish

Coom’s Corner boasts homemade recipes, family-friendly atmosphere

Abhinanda Datta

Assistant Editor

Guests may visit this restaurant

hoping to meet former Major

League Baseball player Ron

Coomer, but the delicious food

and convivial ambience are what

keep them coming back.

Coom’s Corner opened its

doors to Lockport in March

2018, boasting a family-friendly

atmosphere where people can

watch the games they enjoy,

while munching on upscale bar

food such as burgers, wings and

pizza.

“Ron and his partners wanted

a place where folks could come

in and hang out, watch the ball

game,” manager Candy McWilliams

said. “It is a place for everyone.”

Coomer joined a few of his

former teammates from Lockport

baseball to start this venture

and be part of the community in

which he was raised.

The place was already popular

among sports fans, but as chef

Dean McWilliams took charge

of the kitchen, food lovers began

to frequent Coom’s Corner to try

his unique recipes.

“He used the menu that we already

had here and put his own

special twist on them, introducing

fresh ingredients and making

everything from scratch,” Candy

said. “He dislikes anything frozen,

so he wants everything to be

his own recipe. He is really great

at spicing things up.”

That holds true for the Ballpark

Nachos ($13), a popular

appetizer with a savory blend of

beef, queso, lettuce, pico, cheese

and more. The dish has a special

kick to it because of the poblano

and jalapeno peppers.

Candy said she started during

the restaurant’s first year, when

she met Coomer and realized

that “he was a genuine person

and someone I would like to

work for.”

“It has been a really great experience

so far, but as with any

restaurant business, it has also

been quite challenging,” she

said. “We always have to come

up with new ideas to bring people

in, especially during the slow

periods.”

She usually employs the use of

social media to engage people,

but this year the restaurant also

decided to launch a new menu.

“Change is always good, and

I think people are a little bored

of the same menu,” Candy said.

“It is important to keep evolving,

and now we will offer more options.”

Launching at the end of this

year, the new menu will have a

host of additions. One item about

which Candy said she is particularly

excited is Pubstix ($13)

— a three-cheese blend with tomatoes,

roasted garlic and fresh

basil, enclosed within a fried egg

roll skin, served with an arrabbiata

dipping sauce.

“Dean started this back at his

old work place, and it is one of

his own recipes,” she said. “It is

still very popular there.”

She also said guests have been

asking for more dinner entree

options, and those will be added,

including pork chops and a chargrilled

chicken dinner.

Another item to which diners

can look forward is the Walking

Dilla ($9), which has lightly

smoked chicken, pepper, cilantro,

cheese and lime rolled in a

crispy flour tortilla.

The new dishes will not replace

old favorites.

“We sell a lot of appetizers,

such as the boneless chicken

wings [$11] and our pizzas and

burgers are also well-liked,”

Candy said. “Our menu isn’t

very big, because I think giving

too many options can be confusing.

But whatever we have

is quite different from regular

sports bar food.”

While most go for the Coom’s

Call ($10.95) — the standard

burger — some try the more innovate

Grand Slam ($15.95), a

burger patty tucked between two

grilled cheeses sandwiches.

This year, Candy also is adding

a list of special seasonal drinks,

and fall specials are available

through December. One of the

cocktails on that list is the Candy

Corn Martini ($6), that has

candy corn-infused Tito’s vodka

and butterscotch. Those with a

penchant for refreshing flavors

can try the Fall Over Mule ($6)

with gin, ginger beer, apple and

lemon juices.

“This is the first time I’m

introducing these, and I hope

they do very well, because there

The Coom’s Call burger ($10.95) is a combination of burger patty,

lettuce, pickle and ranch dressing on a brioche bun.

is something for everyone,”

Candy said. “Domestic beer is

always popular, and it is quite

common. But, earlier this year,

I prepared a new cocktail, and

people seemed to love it. So,

now I plan to have a winter specials,

as well.”

Lockport is flushed with great

eateries, but according to Candy,

this restaurant has “top-notch

food.”

“What we serve is of a higher

quality,” she said. “It is not just

thrown in a fryer and put on a

plate. The chef spends a lot of

time on the sauces and pays a

lot of attention to them. We always

see people coming in and

celebrating something together.

That’s what I enjoy seeing, and

that’s what we strive to do.”

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

highly-regarded

Lincoln-Way

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

Nooner.

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

guidelines.

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.

Athlete of the Week

10 Questions

Justin Darlage is a senior

on the Lincoln-Way West

soccer team.

How long have you

been playing soccer

and how did you get

started?

I started playing soccer

when I was 5. My older

sister [Bri] played, she’s a

senior in college now [on

the soccer team at Lindenwood-Belleville].

I’d

go watch her games and I

wanted to play. I followed

in her footsteps.

What do you like most

about soccer?

I like the competitive

nature of it. Every day

there’s a chance to win

because you’re always

competing against someone:

your own teammates,

other teams, anybody.

What do you think

makes you a strong

player?

I feel like my work ethic

is a big part of it. I think I

have pretty good technical

ability and my athleticism

helps a lot, too.

Are you planning to

play in college?

Yeah, I definitely want

to play in college but I

don’t know where yet. I’m

still looking.

How have you tried

to step up as a senior

leader?

RANDY WHALEN

Freelance Reporter

Lincoln-Way Central is

excited about its postseason

potential.

The Knights put together

a strong showing in their

home pool at the SouthWest

Suburban Conference meet

Saturday, Nov. 2, scoring

212 points to finish second

behind Lincoln-Way East

(289).

Lincoln-Way West (209)

was third, followed by

Sandburg (179), Lockport

Township (139), Stagg

(101), Homewood-Flossmoor

(99), Andrew (93),

and Bradley-Bourbonnais

(38).

The Knights captured the

final event of the meet, the

400-yard freestyle relay to

vault into second. Autumn

Hufnagl, Sierra Maze, Madi

Jager, and Keara McGowan

(3 minutes, 44.04 seconds)

edged East (3:44.78) by less

than a second.

McGowan, a junior, also

won the 200 free by seven

seconds with a time of

1:55.22.

McGowan (1:00.06) was

a close second in the backstroke.

Not bad since the

200-free and backstroke

aren't even events that she

will do in the sectional.

"It was a new experience,

but it was nice," McGowan

said. "I'm happy. We were

trying to go all out and practice

our race strategy. I'm going

to do the 50 and 100 free

in the sectional, the same as

last year. The goal is to get

back to state [she just missed

making the final day in both

events last fall]. We've all

worked so hard all season

and supported each other."

Lincoln-Way West’s Lea Moeller swims at the

SouthWest Suburban Conference meet Saturday, Nov.

2. Moeller won the 50-yard freestyle and 100 free.

ADAM JOMANT/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

Hufnagl (5:29.54) placed

second in the 500 free.

Abigail Hawksworth

(3rd, 399.70), and Rebekkah

Schimick (5th, 379.80)

got the Knights off to a fast

start in diving held Friday,

Nov. 1.

West junior Lea Moeller

set a new pool record by

leading off the 200 free relay

with a leg of 23.8 seconds.

Even though it was in

a relay, it counts as a record

since it was off the block.

The previous pool record

was 23.81 in 2016 by West’s

Caitlyn Schreiber.

"She just missed the record

at the Lincoln-Way

Central Invite earlier this

year, so I anticipated her

getting it [at the conference

finals]," West coach Eric

Pavlacka said. "The record

won't last long, though. I

expect her to improve on it

when we go back to Central

for the sectional."

That record-breaking performance

helped the Warriors

win the 200 free relay

with Moeller, Teagan Zack,

Kasey Fris, and Amelia Dellamano

(1:39.56).

Fris, Bella Cichon, Dellamano,

and Moeller (1:51.03)

placed second in the 200

medley relay.

Moeller won the 50 free

(23.87) and the 100 free

(52.56).

Cichon (1:08.68) was second

in the 100 breaststroke.

It was the 500 free that

churned out the story of the

day for Fris, who is also a

junior. She won the event by

over 16 seconds with a time

5:13.20. It was only her third

time this season swimming

the event and she set a new

school record by six seconds

over the previous one by

Emily Gallagher (5:19).

"I was amazed, I was

like, ‘Wow!’” Fris said.

"This meet was going to

decide if I swam [the 500]

in the sectional, and I guess

so, I am. I swam it twice in

the middle of the year and

did well there. This is only

the third time I've done it.

"I was in a lot of events

[at conference] but it was

worth it. I had a rough

season last year but now I

know what to do and have

done well."

I’ve tried to be the guy

that people can look to

when they need help with

something, or if they need

motivation to get them

going. If they need pointers

or anything like that, I

try to help with that. I just

try to help people get on

board and find a way to

win.

What have you

learned from coach

Matt Laude?

I’ve learned a lot off the

field. Everything on the

field has been good, too,

but the off-the-field stuff

is really important. How

you act is key, you always

want to make sure you’re

very respectful and you’re

a good person off the field.

If you could be

anybody else for a

day, who would you

want to be?

Cristiano Ronaldo.

He’s probably one of the

best soccer players in the

world, and with how famous

he is, how much

Steve Millar/22nd Century Media

money he has, the level

that he plays at and his talent,

it’d be cool to experience

all that.

What is your favorite

TV show?

Probably “Friends.” I

think it’s hilarious.

If you could be any

superhero, which

would you want to

be?

Probably Iron Man. He

can fly, he’s super sprong.

He can pretty much do everything.

If you could travel

anywhere in the

world, where you

want to go?

Probably London. I

could watch Premier

League games. Five of

the biggest teams are right

there in London. My favorite

team is Manchester

City.

Local runner shares milestone marathon with his daughter

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

For Mokena’s Mike

Kenny, running marathons

has developed into a passion

that continually pushes

him to do more.

Kenny, who runs locally

with the Frankfort/New

Lenox Running Club and

Yankee Runners, has ran

races all over the United

States. As he approached

his 100th marathon,

though, there was still one

thing high on his bucket

list that he had yet to do:

run one with one of his

children.

That changed at the Chicago

Marathon on Oct.

13. Mike Kenny, 56, ran

his 24th straight Chicago

Marathon and his 100th

marathon overall, and his

26-year-old daughter Erin

ran alongside him for her

first marathon.

“We had a fantastic

race,” Mike Kenny said.

“We ran the whole thing

together, never had to walk

the whole way, so it was

really a great race.

“It was phenomenal.

Out of the 100 marathons

i’ve run, this was by far

the best, because I had my

daughter with me.”

Erin Kenny has known

for a long time of her father’s

desire to have one

of his kids run a marathon

with him, but she had never

ran a race longer than a

5K when she came up with

the idea to surprise Mike

last Christmas.

“Ever since me and my

siblings were younger,

my dad wanted us to run

a marathon with him,”

Erin said. “All of us were

not really runners, and it

was like, ‘That’s probably

not going to happen.’ But

when I knew he was going

to be going for his 100th,

I thought it would be a

good time to try to do it for

him.”

It was a tremendous

Christmas present for

Mike Kenny.

“I’ve been asking my

kids to do it with me for

about 12 years,” he said.

“Erin surprised me on

Christmas and told me she

entered the lottery for the

Chicago Marathon and got

in. I’ve been elated since

then to have the opportunity

to run with her.”

Erin Kenny now lives

in downtown Chicago and

is in nursing school at the

University of Chicago, but

she came home to Mokena

to run with her father as often

as possible while training

for the marathon.

“He told me everything

about it and completely

prepared me for the race,”

Erin said.

Still, the mental aspects

of the marathon were even

more challenging than

Erin expected.

“It was a surreal experience,”

she said. “It was

difficult during the race.

You get to mile 16 or 17

and it’s tough mentally to

make yourself run longer

than that. You hit a wall.

But my dad helped me

push through. He usually

runs faster than me, but he

stayed back with me so we

could go through the whole

experience together.”

Erin ran with a small

sign on her shirt that said

her dad was running in

his 100th marathon. Mike

ran with one that said his

daughter was running in

her first.

“People would see the

signs and were congratulating

him and he’d say,

‘I’m living a dream because

I’m running with

my daughter.’” Erin said.

“That just pushed me even

Erin (left) and Mike Kenny ran the Chicago Marathon

together Oct. 13. It was Mike’s 100th marathon and the

first for his daughter, Erin. Photo submitted

harder to finish.”

When the father and

daughter crossed the finish

line together, both had

accomplished something

they once thought would

be unattainable.

“This became a goal two

or three years ago, I started

focusing on it,” Mike

Kenny said. “Last year

in Chicago was my 90th.

I wanted to do my 100th

at home, so I decided I’d

make this one my 100th,

and I had to do nine marathons

in between.

“One hundred is a number

that when I started

doing this, I never anticipated

getting to. So, to do

it and to get to do it with

my daughter, it’s just indescribable

how good the

feeling was.”

Mike Kenny’s marathon

journey will certainly continue.

He planned to run

the New York Marathon

for the first time on Sunday,

Nov. 3.

Erin? Put her down as a

maybe.

“Will I run one again?

That’s the question of the

year now,” she said. “I

think I will, but I’m going

to wait until I finish

school. So, maybe 2021.”

Either way, Erin helped

fulfil one of her father’s

dreams, and the 2019 Chicago

Marathon is one the

Kenny family will never

forget.

“Running means so

much to me and out of my

100 races, none mean more

to me than this one,” Mike

Kenny said. “To be able

to do it with Erin, and to

get the support I received

from my family and all my

friends is overwhelming.”

Heartbreaker: LW West loses on final play

SEAN HASTINGS, Editor

It was as if time stood

still as Phillips quarterback

Antonio Brown’s pass to

Ronald Pledger in the back

of the end zone floated

through the air as the horn

— the only sound in the

stadium — rang throughout

Gately Stadium signaling

the end of the game.

Pledger came down

with the pass for a 22-yard

touchdown on the final

play of the game, stunning

Lincoln-Way West and

lifting Phillips to a 30-24

win in a Class 7A firstround

game on Saturday,

Nov. 2.

The Phillips fans, coaches

and players erupted,

while West’s fans, coaches

and players stood still and

silent.

The Warriors (5-5) were

left in disbelief that the

game they stormed back

to tie after being down two

touchdowns in the fourth

quarter, did not end in their

favor.

“We had so many ups

and downs, wins and

losses, but it brought us together

a lot,” West senior

Billy Dozier said. “I just

LW West 0 3 7 14 24

Three Stars of the Game:

1. Ronald Pledger, Phillips, senior receiver --- Game-winning

22-yard touchdown catch on final play

2. Billy Dozier, LW West, senior receiver/running back --- Two

touchdown runs

3. Quentin Villa, LW West, sophomore tight end --- 5-yard

touchdown catch

didn’t expect it to end this

soon and be the last week.”

West scored six seconds

into the fourth quarter

on sophomore tight end

Quentin Villa’s 5-yard

touchdown catch on a

play-action pass from

Evan Wydajewski.

Then with 9:31 left in

the game, Dozier broke off

a 56-yard touchdown run

to tie the game 24-24.

Dozier also had a 1-yard

touchdown run in the third

quarter on a drive that was

kept alive after a Phillips

player committed an unsportsmanlike

penalty on

a play that should have resulted

in fourth down.

West’s other score was a

35-yard field goal from senior

kicker Damian Chowaniec.

Dozier took snaps at

running back and wide receiver

after the Warriors

lost starting running back

Caleb Marconi to injury in

Week 8, another obstacle

for the Warriors to deal

with in a turbulent season.

West played with a new

life in the second half and

that was in part due to the

vocal leadership of Griffin

Ketelaar, senior linebacker

and captain.

“I got a little riled up at

halftime with screaming

and stuff,” Ketelaar said.

“But I think everyone got

the message.”

Phillips’ first score came

on a 77-yard touchdown

pass that got tipped by

the intended receiver and

caught by another just a

few yards further up the

field.

A play like that can be

called lucky, but it counts

nonetheless and West had

to claw its way back from

it.

Ketelaar was proud of

how the younger players

responded in the second

half.

“They were into it just

as much as we were knowing

that they have two

more years and they were

unselfish,” he said. “But

we weren’t able to pull

through in the end, but the

effort was there for sure.”

One of those younger

players is sophomore defensive

back Justin Harris,

who was in on the coverage

on the final play, making

a great effort to bat the

ball down.

Harris also had an interception

in the end zone

earlier in the game, giving

West fans just a glimpse of

what the secondary looks

like for the next two years.

Ernst has always been

impressed by Harris.

“Justin will bounce

defense from Lincoln-Way West’s Justin Harris, on the

back,” Ernst said. “He’s

a competitor. He doesn’t

care if you’re playing

checkers, he’s going to

try and beat you. He’ll be

back.”

Ernst added that part of

Harris’ growth will come

from looking up to Ketelaar

and senior defensive

lineman Matt Nevin and

seeing how they approach

the game.

Ketelaar said he will be

back for games next year

to see how much the secondary

grows into being

juniors.

After the game, Ketelaar

told his fellow defenders

that they’re all going to be

all-stars next year.

Ketelaar and Dozier

are two players who felt

the heartbreak after last

year’s second-round loss

to Simeon, but knew they

had another year to make

a run. But like Dozier said,

it went by much faster than

he thought. Now he is in the

position his senior teammates

were in last year.

“Just cherish the time

you have here and don’t

take anything for granted,”

Dozier said. “It can end really

fast.”

Our staff’s predictions for the top games in Week 2 of the playoffs

Just two teams left from the land of 22nd

Century Media. So, both of them will be featured

as our Games of the Week. What a great time

of the year!

GameS of the Week

• Niles Notre Dame (8-2) at LW East (10-0)

• Crete-Monee (10-0) at Providence (7-3)

Jeff Vorva |

Sports Editor

• LWE 40, Notre Dame 17. On paper,

this sounds like a pretty good game.

On the field, it may not be so pretty.

• Crete-Monee 36, Providence 29. This

has the makings of a shootout but

the Warriors will squeak it out.

• LWE 34, Notre Dame 10. Griffins

steamroll another opponent.

• Providence 21, Crete-Monee

20. Celtics pull off the upset at

home to knock off the previously

undefeated Warriors.

Steve Millar |

Sports Editor

• LWE 31, Notre Dame 10. Despite

some key injuries, the Griffins are

still too deep, too determined and

too good for the Dons.

• Crete-Monee 26, Providence 24.

The Celtics will be Crete-Monee’s

first real test all year, but the Warriors

have experience pulling off

close playoff wins from last year’s

run to the 6A title game.

• LWE 31, Notre Dame 17. Offense

keeps rolling and Griffins stay

undefeated.

• Providence 17, Crete-Monee 14.

Celtics end Crete’s undefeated

season with upset, but comes down

to the wire.

Joe Coughlin |

Publisher

• LWE 24, Notre Dame 10. Great

matchup. Notre Dame is rock solid

but Griffins are special and hold the

Dons down.

• Providence 38, Crete-Monee 35.

Barnburner here but Celtics ride

high from upset win in the first

round and hold on at home.

Heather Warthen |

Chief Marketing Officer

• LWE 21, Notre Dame 14. Home

field advantage helps Griffins

secure playoff win.

• Providence 14, Crete-Monee 13. It

will be a close call for the Celtics,

but they will stay alive another

week.

Kreis wins sectional; LW Central boys and girls state-bound

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

Lincoln-Way Central

senior Jared Kreis wanted

to test himself at the Class

3A Normal Sectional on

Saturday, Nov. 2.

Running seven days before

the state meet, Kreis

decided to push harder

than he did at the regional

race and get more of a feel

for how he might run at

state.

The Duke recruit certainly

passed the test. Kreis

pulled away from Lincoln-

Way East’s Brett Gardner

to win the sectional title

by over 22 seconds with a

time of 14 minutes, 38.65

seconds at Maxwell Park

in Normal.

“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).

The state meet is set for

Saturday, Nov. 9, at Detweiller

Park in Peoria.

“Team-wise, we knew

we had a shot [to make

state], but I think we exceeded

our expectations by

taking third,” Kreis said.

“We all ran well and obviously

for next week we're

excited."

Caden Simone (18th,

15:53), Jay Parker (35th,

16:18.5), Nolan Sams

(36th, 16:22.69) and Kurt

Kreis (40th, 16:26.98)

rounded out the Knights’

scorers. Kurt Kreis is the

freshman brother of Jared.

Jared Kreis was the only

runner in the state to go

under 15 minutes at sectionals.

He will head to

state with the fourth-best

top time in the state.

Lincoln-Way East (161)

also qualified for state as a

team with a fifth-place finish

behind Gardner (2nd,

15:01.1), 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).

“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.”

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.”

The Lincoln-Way Central

girls, meanwhile, are

also going to state after a

fourth-place finish. The

Knights (145) finished

behind Yorkville (30), Minooka

(53) and O’Fallon

(128).

“It’s phenomenal seeing

how far we’ve come

as a team,” senior Rachel

Baumgartner said. “It’s a

real confidence booster.”

Junior Merrigan Allen

(6th, 18:30.99) and

Baumgartner (10th,

18:37.67) led the way

for Central. Lexy Sams

(39th, 19:36.35), Emma

Lincoln-Way Central’s Jared Kreis pulls away down the stretch to win the Class 3A

Normal Sectional on Saturday, Nov. 2, at Maxwell Park.

STEVE MILLAR/22nd Century Media

Olson (47th, 19:50.81) and

Colleen Erdman (50th,

19:52.81) also contributed.

“It felt really good,” Allen

said. “Throughout the

race, I just kept trying to

pass people, catch up to

Rachel. At the end, I was

able to kick there. It seems

like even when I’m tired at

the end of the race, I can

kick.”

Allen’s strong finish

inspired Baumgartner to

close hard and finish in the

top 10 to earn All-Sectional

honors.

“When Merrigan went

by me, that was extra motivation

for me to finish

strong,” Baumgartner said.

“I figured if she can do it, I

can do it.

“To be All-Conference,

All-Regional and All-Sectional

means a lot to me.”

Lincoln-Way East’s

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.”

The Griffins (239) were

eighth, while Lincoln-Way

West (243) finished ninth.

The Warriors were led

by Elise Champlin (40th,

19:36.97) and Gianna

Arizzi (44th, 19:45.19).

Providence’s Kulpinski

qualifies in 2A

Providence junior

Emma Kulpinski (20:38.5)

advanced to the Class 2A

state meet with a 21stplace

finish at the Thornridge

Sectional.

Lights-out Providence rolls to

regional title over Tinley Park

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

Providence sophomore

outside hitter Juliana Warfield

felt the pressure building

leading up to the Class

3A Providence Regional

final against Tinley Park on

Oct. 31.

“I was actually really

nervous, and I think we all

were,” she said. “Once you

get on the court, though, you

kind of settle in and it was

just like, ‘This is our game,

here we go.’”

It certainly was the Celtics’

game. Behind a dominant

all-around performance

from Warfield, Providence

rolled to its fifth straight regional

title with a 25-9, 25-

18 win over Tinley Park in

New Lenox.

The third-seeded Celtics

(22-16) advanced to take

on second-seeded Marian

Catholic (25-10) in a Joliet

Catholic Sectional semifinal

that was scheduled for 6:30

p.m. Monday, Nov. 4.

Warfield was a big reason

why Providence made

it to another sectional. The

sophomore may have been

nervous in pregame, but she

was certainly undaunted by

the big stage.

Seemingly unstoppable

nearly every time she

touched the ball, Warfield

finished with nine kills and

five aces.

“Juliana did a great job,”

Providence coach Jean

Phelps said. “She does all

the time. Once our girls

were able to get in a groove,

they took off.”

Sophomore Kaidence Lydon

added seven kills off the

bench for the Celtics. Senior

Izabela Gorys and junior

3A regional championship win over Tinley Park with

Century Media

Gillian Peterson had six kills

each, and junior Vittoria

Conte added four digs.

Emily Kleffman led Tinley

Park (27-7) with four

kills, adding to her school

record for career kills in

the final match of a brilliant

career. Junior Sam Faricelli

had eight assists.

The Titans hung tough

early in the opening set

and led 6-5, but Providence

scored 13 of the next 14

points to turn it into a blowout.

Warfield was at the service

line for nine straight

Celtics’ points, putting down

three of her aces during the

surge.

“We started playing with

them in the beginning, but

once you get those couple

serves you can get going and

you don’t stop,” Warfield

said. “Serving is probably

one of the most important

things.

“If you serve them hard

and they can’t pass it, can’t

do anything to set up their

offense, that is 100 percent

to our advantage.”

The second set was again

tight early on. After a 10-

10 tie, though, the Celtics

scored six straight points.

Warfield and Peterson had

two kills each to spark the

run.

About the only thing that

went wrong for the Celtics

the entire night was a premature

celebration as a ball was

called out after a bit of a delay

on match point, bringing

the Titans within 24-18 and

forcing the Providence reserves

that had charged onto

the court back to the bench.

Gorys, though, ended it

for real with a thunderous

kill on the next point.

“I was ready to put it down

and end it,” Gorys said. “It

was so exciting. We had so

much motivation to win this.

We came in pumped up and

ready. We’ve been working

so hard in our practices and

we’re ready to fight.

“We played together as a

team really well. Everyone

stepped up and did their job

really well. We just got so

much energy and momentum

going.”

LW Central gets playoff win over

West before falling to Sandburg

STEVE MILLAR, Sports Editor

What turned out to be

Lincoln-Way Central’s final

win of the season was

definitely a fun one for the

Knights.

They drew crosstown rival

Lincoln-Way West for

their playoff opener in a

Class 4A Thornwood Regional

semifinal Oct. 29.

“I really enjoy playing

Lincoln-Way West because

of the rivalry between

all three Lincoln-Way

schools,” junior Rachel

Kolodziej said. “It builds

our team to play better and

be more motivated.”

Central beat West for the

third time this season with

a 25-20, 25-20 victory.

Kolodziej had six kills

and four aces, senior Katie

Barry led with eight kills

and eight digs, while Marissa

Ramirez had seven

assists and seven digs and

Kadynce Woodrum added

seven digs.

Isabella Been led Lincoln-Way

West (11-24)

with seven kills and six

digs. Katie Little added

five kills and six digs,

while Annie Yelnick had

10 assists and Alexa Flores

dished out six.

The eighth-seeded

Knights (18-19) saw their

season end two nights later

with a 25-14, 25-19 loss to

top-seeded Sandburg on

Oct. 31.

In the loss to the Eagles,

Barry led with seven kills

and three digs, Kolodziej

added five kills, three digs

and two aces, and Ramirez

had 14 assists and 11 digs.

Before the seasonending

defeat, though,

the Knights showed their

STEVE MILLAR/22nd Century Media

toughness against West.

In both sets, Central fell

behind but battled back.

The Warriors jumped to

a 5-0 lead in the opener.

“We just tried to talk

together, say we’ve got

the next one, we’re not

going to let this affect us,

and side out right away,”

Barry said. “We knew that

they were going to give us

a game, but we tried to be

consistent and aggressive

with them and put ourselves

in good positions to

score points.”

The Knights took control

with a 7-0 run that immediately

followed a timeout

after West went up 14-13.

Woodrum served during

the surge, including an ace,

and Barry had a big kill.

Central went on another

big run after a timeout in

the second set.

So, it must be coach

Mary Brown’s pep talks?

“I just look mean,”

Brown said. “I don’t have

to say anything, I just give

them the face.”

West ran out to a 10-4

lead in the second set before

the Knights began chipping

away, eventually tying it at

13-13 on a Barry kill.

It was 18-18 before Central

edged ahead for good

with a kill from Maddie

Underhill and a block from

Carli Udovich.

“We felt like it was our

chance to show how powerful

our team is and how

strong we are together,”

Kolodziej said.

The Warriors, meanwhile,

had reasons to be

excited about the future.

West had a young roster

with several exciting players,

including a sophomore

in Been. Flores, a freshman,

got a chance to set in

a postseason match after

senior Hannah Rubin came

down with the flu.

“In my one lineup, it

was all sophomores across

the front row with a freshman

setter [Flores],”

West coach Kendall Villa

said. “I’m proud of them.

They didn’t give up. They

fought for their points and

made some really good

self-corrections. That’s

what I like to see.”

Set for success: Set-piece goals help West win sectional

4

PATRICK Z. MCGAVIN

Freelance Reporter

The game is played so

fast and spontaneously

that rarely does Lincoln-

Way West defender Tyler

Vedder have a moment for

reflection.

This situation was different.

In the 63rd minute,

West’s Justin Darlage

blasted a free kick from

just inside midfield that

curved beautifully as senior

midfielder Drew

Murphy elevated for the

picture-perfect header.

“Chills ran through

my body,” Vedder said.

“I knew we had it in the

bag.”

The Warriors strung

together three set-piece

goals to rewrite history for

the 3-2 victory over Marist

in the Class 3A Lincoln-

Way East Sectional final

Saturday, Nov. 2.

Lincoln-Way West (14-

10) captured the first sectional

title in program history.

The Warriors were set to

play downstate power Edwardsville

(20-4-1) in the

Bradley-Bourbonnais Supersectional

at 6:30 p.m.

Tuesday, Nov. 5.

To coin their own

phrase, three heads are better

than one.

The Warriors scored

on three goals on headers

originating off set pieces

that offset the RedHawks’

dominant advantage in

possession time.

“You can keep possession,

but possession does

not always translate to

goals,” West coach Matt

Laude said. “We knew going

in that they were going

to be a very good team.

They are very a wellcoached

and very wellorganized

team.”

Laude and his top assistant

Marissa Wingate

pored over video footage

of Marist (15-6-5), looking

for areas the Warriors

could exploit.

“We watched probably

20 hours of film leading up

to this game, we were dissecting,

and we saw one of

their weaknesses was dead

balls: corners, free kicks

and throw-ins, so we really

focused on our dead balls,

Laude said.

“We knew we had to

take advantage of those

opportunities.”

Certain narratives have

played out in each of the

four state tournament victories

by the eighth-seeded

Warriors. The principal

one has been the spectacular

play of senior goalkeeper

Chris Zavala.

Just as he did in his

monumental effort in the

3-1 upset of top-seeded

Mount Carmel in the regional

championship, Zavala

played an extraordinary

game against Marist.

He recorded eight saves,

including four astonishing

stops from point-blank

range in the first half as

Marist made repeated forays

inside the Warriors’

box.

Marist controlled up to

80 percent of the possession

time.

“It’s all about execution

and working on reactions

for those point-blank

saves,” Zavala said. “It

helped out with those key

saves in the first half.”

Zavala, who took over

as the starter this year after

the graduation of Connor

O’Shaughnessy, has raised

his game exponentially in

the second half of the season.

“He is immensely determined

and laser-focused,”

Laude said. “He is one of

the funniest people you are

ever going to meet. Once

the whistle blows, he is all

about being focused and

serious on what the game

is all about.

“Chris stood on his

head. He has been standing

on his head this entire

playoff series. To step into

a position because you are

the goalie - everybody is

watching the goalie - he is

playing so phenomenally I

would not want anybody

else standing between my

pipes.”

An inadvertent handball

in the box by a Warriors

defender set up the

opening Marist goal. Joey

Shannon converted the

penalty kick in the 26th

minute for the 1-0 lead.

“We are the type of team

that we always know we

are in the game, no matter

what,” Vedder said. “We

went down 1-0, but we

got that corner and the ball

came out of nowhere.”

Darlage’s creativity and

accuracy on corner kicks

and free kicks proved an

invaluable weapon. He

optimized every serious

threat.

That transcended the

lack of opportunities in the

run of play.

Off a corner on the left

edge in the 32nd minute,

Darlage delivered with

another beautifully placed

serve, and Vedder elevated

to score on a header.

“I’ve always taken free

kicks,” said Darlage, who

scored both goals in the

2-0 sectional semifinal win

over Shepard. “I have always

hit solid balls in the

box. Being left-footed, my

ball comes in a little differently

than somebody who

strikes the ball with their

right foot.

“This year, I have had a

lot of practice with it. Earlier

in the season we struggled

with our set pieces.

Through this state tournament,

we have been very

good and hungry on the set

pieces.”

The game-defining sequence

happened in the

61st minute. A foul inside

the box gave the Red-

Hawks a second penaltykick

opportunity.

Shannon again went

for inside the left corner.

Zavala’s anticipation and

movements threw him

off slightly and the ball

clipped off the near post.

“You are in the mindset

of they have a PK, and you

prepare yourself of going

down in the situation,”

Darlage said. “We have to

change everything. It was

a huge boost momentum

and energy-wise.

“They were down from

missing it, and we took it

to them.”

Less than two minutes

later, Darlage served the

beautiful free kick that

Murphy finished. Newly

energized, West created

further separation in the

71st minute.

On the corner throw-in

from the left wing, midfielder

Miles Hagen set up

midfielder Ryan Towner

for the crucial insurance

goal in the 71st minute.

The only somber note

for West was Murphy being

issued a second yellow

card in the 73rd minute,

forcing the Warriors to

play down a man in the

closing moments.

By state rules, Murphy

is going to be ineligible to

play against Edwardsville.

“We will lick our

wounds from that, and recover,”

Laude said.

Marist forward Ethan

Fit scored in the final 10

seconds. The Warriors

then punched the ball deep

into the other end and began

their celebration.

“Playing defensively the

whole game, everybody

did their part and we took

care of our chances when

we had them,” Darlage

said.

Momentum is everything

in the tournament.

Lincoln-Way West is

playing an elevated and

instinctive style of soccer

that has taken the team to

uncharted heights.

“We went into the playoffs

thinking anything

could happen,” Laude

said. “We are the type of

team easy for other teams

to overlook, and if people

continue to overlook us,

we are going to continue

to turn some heads.

“I told the boys, we go

in, play our game and focus

on what we do, and we

are going to come out with

some victories as we have

shown.”

three notes on

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 Central.

Lucas Porto has the size

and speed to be a dominant

receiver, but the 6-foot-5

Providence senior has not

been quite as productive as

he would have liked this

season.

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

same page.

“Me and Kevin worked

hard all week to get that

connection going,” Porto

said. “And we had a game.”

Porto had five catches

for 126 yards and two

touchdowns to lead the

visiting Celtics to a 19-14

win over Normal West in a

Class 6A first-round playoff

game Saturday, Nov. 2.

Providence (7-3) moved

on to host 2018 state runner-up

Crete-Monee (10-

0) in the second round.

“Lucas was due for a

breakout game,” Providence

coach Mark Coglianese

said. “I know the

talent that he has. It’s just a

matter of getting the quarterback

some time and taking

some shots with him.

We don’t throw deep very

often, but when we do, I

have all the confidence in

the world in Lucas.”

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

third-and-5.

“[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

happy with that, especially

the way we’re kind of beat

up.”

Senior linebacker Anthony

Prucha led the way

with two sacks.

“The d-line, linebackers

were all playing harder

and faster,” he said. “We

know we have to be more

physical because we have

some young guys in the

back.

“That just lights that

fire. We came together as a

team and got it done.”
