Glenbrook North graduate gets

‘Rockstar’ experience with Nickelback

Martin Carlino, Editor

2

LUXILON

FURNITURE

FINE QUALITY LUXURY FURNITURE

It’s unlikely Brendan

Blankfield will ever have

his own star on Hollywood

Boulevard.

His bathroom may never

be big enough to play baseball

in, and a new tour bus

full of old guitars might

not be in his near future.

But for eight glorious

minutes, the Northbrook

resident got what we all

want — the chance to be a

rock star.

Blankfield, a 21-yearold

graduate of Glenbrook

North, had a once-in-alifetime

experience Tuesday,

Aug. 13, when he

joined the popular rock

band Nickelback onstage

to sing its hit song “Rockstar”

during its show

at Ravinia Festival, in

Highland Park.

“It’s an experience that

I’m going to take with me

forever,” Blankfield said

of the moment. “I’m never

going to let that go. It’s going

to be a fact I bring up

when I meet new people.”

Blankfield said he immediately

jumped up the

moment Nickelback lead

singer Chad Kroeger asked

the audience who wanted

to come up and sing

“Rockstar.”

Just seconds after,

Kroeger pointed toward

Blankfield, and he ran up

Brendan Blankfield onstage Aug. 13 to sing the band’s hit song “Rockstar.” Martin

to the stage.

“I had to walk by like 20

security guards and they

directed me where to go,”

Blankfield recalled. “It

was surreal, honestly.”

The North alumnus remained

on stage for the

song’s entirety, singing a

significant portion with

Kroeger and the band.

“They let me sing — I

could hear it on the video

afterwards, so it’s not like

they muted me,” he said.

“I don’t know how good

I was, but the crowd definitely

heard me.”

Asked what he thought

the crowd’s reaction to his

performance was, Blankfield

humbly said “I think

they responded pretty well

to me.”

Although he didn’t describe

himself as a longtime

fan of the band,

Blankfield plans on “definitely

listening to more

Nickelback” music following

his moment in the

spotlight.

Blankfield initially did

not have tickets to the

band’s Tuesday show, but

ended up attending after

his friend’s parents could

not make the concert.

Nickelback’s Aug. 13

performance was the first

of two shows at Ravinia as

part of its “Feed the Machine”

tour.

The Northbrook native

is currently studying law

and public policy at Indiana

University. While at

GBN, he was a member

of the wrestling team and

played lacrosse for four

years.

Even though a career in

music was never his plan,

Blankfield’s Ravinia debut

“It’s an experience that I’m going to take with me

forever. I’m never going to let that go. It’s going to

be a fact I bring up when I meet new people.”

Northbrook resident Brendan Blankfield — on his experience singing

“Rockstar” onstage with Nickelback.

is a moment he’ll forever

cherish.

“I definitely won’t forget

that experience any

time soon,” he said.

Northbrook Village Board

Proposal for new Northbrook 7-Eleven re-emerges,

with initial concerns of trustees still unaddressed

Chris Pullam

Freelance Reporter

Northbrook could soon

gain a new 7-Eleven, if

the applicant clears a few

lingering hurdles.

Back in October 2018,

the Northbrook Village

Board considered a preliminary

application for

construction of the new

gas station, convenience

store and car wash at

the southeast corner of

Waukegan and Shermer

roads.

The applicant, GW

Northbrook 2, intended

to purchase the

38,176-square-foot property

and then demolish

the existing Mobil service

station and gasoline

pumps to build anew.

The store would operate

24/7, 365 days a year and

would be staffed with no

more than two employees

at any time. The new

building would be 3,062

square feet in area, plus

990 square feet for the

carwash.

The 7-Eleven would

also have five gasoline

pumps to service 10 vehicles

on the west end of the

property, which would be

beneath a canopy, as well

as 16 parking stalls.

The applicant has purchased

the property since

that preliminary review;

However, GW Northbrook

2 failed to submit

a formal application for

modification within six

months of that meeting,

thereby resetting the process.

During the Northbrook

Village Board meeting on

Tuesday, Aug. 13, trustees

considered what amounted

to the same plan, which

included elements that

caused mild concern for

several trustees the first

time.

During their previous

discussion, several

trustees raised a concern

regarding the proposed

number of parking spaces,

requesting that the

applicant try to increase

the proposed number of

parking stalls. The other

major concern pertained

to potential light spillage

from the property to the

residential areas across

the street to the west.

So far, the applicant has

not increased the number

of proposed parking spaces,

nor has it provided any

information regarding the

proposed lighting plan,

according to the meeting

documents. Both these

items will be assessed

during a formal application

process.

“I had a lot of comments

the last time it was

here and all those comments

remain, especially

about the parking,” said

Trustee Muriel Collison.

“And I’d really like the

Plan Commission to look

at the loading and unloading

of product. Since this

came before us, I’ve really

observed what goes on

at the much smaller, older

7-Eleven in the middle of

town and I really feel that

what has been provided is

inadequate.”

Trustees and village

staff will have an opportunity

to explore, and

potentially enforce, their

recommendations once

the applicant submits a

formal application. The

Plan Commission was

scheduled to consider the

proposal on Tuesday, Aug.

20, at its regular meeting.

Trustees approve

ordinance for Wilson

Lawn and Landscape

The board also hosted a

public hearing to consider

an application by Wilson

Lawn and Landscape, as

owner of 255 Anthony

Trail, to allow site changes

to the property. The

business currently operates

out of 2500 Pfingsten

Road and only stores

equipment at the Anthony

Trail location.

However, if the business

receives approval to

modify the site, it would

ROUND IT UP

A brief recap of Village Board action on Tuesday,

Aug. 13:

• Trustees recognized Norm Jacobs for his 14

years of service on the Northbrook Plan Commission.

• The Village Board approved a $88,675 agreement

for with Baxter & Woodman, of Crystal Lake,

the Northbrook Fire Department.

setbacks.

During the Northbrook

Plan Commission public

hearings on the initial application,

no members of

the public testified or objected

to the proposal. The

Village Board had unanimously

supported the proposal

during its Feb. 26

meeting, but procedure

required a public hearing

before it could move forward.

No members of the

public spoke to the issue

during the Village Board

meeting.

According to the applicant,

the business would

have 18 employees and

operate from 6:30 a.m.-

3:30 p.m. on Monday-Friday.

Seasonally, the business

would remain open

until 5:30 p.m., including

on Saturdays. In the winter,

it could potentially remain

open 24 hours a day.

The business would

store soil, mulch, gravel,

salt, trucks, and snowplow

equipment outside

on the site.

Trustees unanimously

approved the ordinance.

Northbrook Plan Commission

Culver’s proposal moves forward

after second public hearing

Staff Report

Editor’s Note: This article is

up-to-date as of publication

time on Monday, Aug. 19. Information

from the Commission’s

Aug. 20 meeting was

not available at press time.

For updates prior to next

week’s paper, please visit

NorthbrookTower.com.

The development of a

4,100-square-foot Culver’s

restaurant, with a drivethru,

took another step forward

after Northbrook’s

Plan Commission instructed

Village staff to prepare

two resolutions on the proposal,

which are scheduled

for a vote on Tuesday, Aug.

20, during the Commission’s

next regular meeting.

Commissioners decided

to prepare one resolution

recommending approval

of the development, and a

second, separate resolution

regarding the installation of

an on-site electronic message

sign.

The decision for two resolutions

came after several

commissioners expressed

concerns regarding the sign.

Commissioner Mark De-

Bartolo said he “generally

supports” the proposal, but

“he couldn’t get behind it”

if the electronic message

board is included.

Under Village zoning

code, electronic message

boards are not permitted

in C-2 neighborhood commercial

districts, but the applicant

is requesting a text

amendment, along with a

special permit, to allow the

sign on the potential development

site.

Northbrook’s Plan Commission was scheduled to vote

Tuesday, Aug. 20, on two resolutions regarding the

potential development of a 4,100-square-foot Culver’s

restaurant, with a drive-thru, in Northbrook. If approved,

the restaurant would be located at the southwest

corner of Sanders and Dundee roads. Design Rendering

Courtesy of the Village of Northbrook

During its last meeting,

the Plan Commission asked

the applicant to address

several of their initial concerns

about the development,

which included questions

about the electronic

sign.

The proposed development,

which would be located

at the southwest corner

of Sanders and Dundee

roads, would include the

4,100-square-foot Culver’s

single-story building with

89 seats and a drive-thru

component.

The applicant submitted

design renderings showing

the sign in relationship

to the proposed Culver’s

restaurant, as requested by

the commission. However,

there were no changes

submitted to the proposed

height or design of the

ground sign with the electronic

message board. The

applicant did list some parameters

of operating the

sign, which are as follows:

• The electronic message

board would operate during

business hours from 10

a.m.-11 p.m.

• It would display lettering

and images, which

would be static, and not

flashing or moving in any

way.

• The board’s display

would not change more

than twice a day.

Several commissioners,

and residents who spoke

during the public comment

portion of the Aug. 6 meeting,

also expressed concerns

about safety.

The applicant proposed

several changes in response,

which include: a

speed table at the crosswalk

to slow down traffic adjacent

to the intersection; additional

on-site directional

signage for pedestrian

safety; and the relocation

of the site’s bike rack from

west of the trash enclosure

to north of the outdoor seating

area.

The majority of the commissioners

said the proposed

speed table would be

rather ineffective because

of its location and need for

constant maintenance.

Northbrook’s Boy Scout Troop 67 outlasts dangerous Wisconsin storm

Zoe Engels, Editorial Intern

As tents collapsed, trees

fell and thunder clapped

at Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Scout

Reservation in Pearson,

Wis., members of Northbrook’s

Boy Scout Troop

67 huddled together beneath

a small pavilion.

Nine of approximately

20 scouts in Boy Scout

Troop 67, ranging between

11 and 15 years old,

were accompanied by two

adults, including scoutmaster

Kevin O’Donohue,

on their annual trip to Ma-

Ka-Ja-Wan. It was the

evening of July 19 – just

one day before the scouts

were scheduled to leave

the scout reservation site

– when the storm hit.

“A smaller tree hit the

pavilion, but the roof

held,” O’Donohue said.

“Trees all around us came

down. Throughout the

camp, there must have

been many hundreds of

trees down.”

“We knew there was

a thunderstorm coming,

but we had one earlier in

the week, and it was just

a lot of rain, so we had

no idea that (the July 19

storm) was going to be

anything near the severity

that it ended up being,”

O’Donohue said.

The majority of troops

were safe in the dining

hall, and it was Boy Scout

Troop 67, along with

one other troop, that got

caught in the storm.

According to

O’Donohue, the other

troop had a lot of vehicles,

which is where they

sought shelter. Boy Scout

Troop 67 had only one

SUV into which it would

have been impossible to

fit 11 individuals, leading

the troop to stay huddled

together under the pavilion,

which O’Donohue

estimates was 15 feet long

by 10 feet wide.

“A giant tree missed my

car by about 10 inches,”

O’Donohue said. “That’s

another reason we were

in the pavilion rather than

my car. If a tree would’ve

hit the roof (of my car), we

would’ve been crushed,

so thank goodness that pavilion

held.”

As the storm commenced,

which

O’Donohue said began in

“the blink of an eye,” the

troop conducted a headcount

of scouts, and they

discovered one scout was

missing. The scout had

gone back to his tent.

And, as O’Donohue went

to find the missing scout,

the scout himself came

running toward the pavilion

– injured.

“His tent had collapsed

on him, and he ended up

fracturing his leg, (which)

we didn’t know at the

time,” O’Donohue said.

The scout’s tent was

among the eight of 11

tents that had collapsed

over the course of the

storm.

The injured scout arrived

at the pavilion wet

and shivering. The troop

quickly found a couple of

dry towels to wrap around

the injured scout so as to

keep him warm, and the

scouts all huddled together.

Although the storm

only lasted approximately

30 minutes, the damage

was extensive.

“Whole sections of

trees just snapped in half,”

O’Donohue said. “It

looked like someone put

dynamite charges halfway

up (the trees) and blew

them all up. It was just

mind-boggling how many

trees were down. We were

shocked.”

After the storm passed,

the second adult accompanying

the troop and staff

at Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan went

in search of one of the

said the medic was able

to make his way to the

troop’s campsite with the

help of another counselor

on the site, who hacked

his way down the main

road with an axe and machete.

The medic treated the

scout and immobilized

his leg. After a few hours,

once the scout had warmed

up and seemed to be doing

better, O’Dononhue

and the rest of the troop

helped the scout into the

back of the SUV so that

he could sleep.

“They were just meshing

together and holding onto

everybody.”

Commission

From Page 11

Commissioner Ihab Riad

said he “was not very happy

with the safety” and he

still had concerns about the

sign and green initiatives.

Northbrook resident Josh

Kaplan, who owns Josh’s

Hot Dogs, passionately

presented testimony during

the hear from the audience

portion of the meeting. Kaplan’s

main issue with the

proposal was the electronic

ground sign.

“Another type of sign is

what I’m requesting — a

lot more subtle, less flash,”

he said. “We’re west Northbrook:

a quiet, locally driven

business community. It’s

the reason why I chose to

open my business here. ...

It’s what sets our area apart

from all other suburbs.”

Commissioners are expected

to vote on both

resolutions at their Aug. 20

meeting.

THE WILMETTE BEACON

Car stolen from Wilmette

involved in fatal Lake

County shooting, police

chase

A car stolen from the

driveway of a residence in

Wilmette during the overnight

hours of Sunday,

Aug. 11, was involved in

a high-speed chase from

Lake County to Chicago

two nights later, according

to the Wilmette Police Department

and Lake County

Sheriff’s Office.

The chase was preceded

by a homicide at a residence

in Gurnee involving

the occupants of the stolen

car.

A resident in the 3100

block of Old Glenview

Road in Wilmette had reported

the vehicle stolen

on Aug. 11. The car, a

2015 Lexus SUV, was left

unlocked in the driveway

with the key in the cupholder,

according to the

Wilmette Police Department.

Two nights later on Tuesday,

Aug. 13, a 14-year-old

Chicago boy was killed

after being shot outside a

Gurnee residence.

According to a press release

from the Lake County

Sheriff’s Office, six

teenagers traveled to the

home in the stolen Lexus

to commit a burglary. During

the course of the burglary,

at approximately

1:15 a.m., they allegedly

confronted the 75-yearold

homeowner, who went

outside to investigate why

there were people near his

2011 Audi, parked in the

driveway.

The homeowner later

told detectives he yelled

at the individuals to leave,

but at least one male allegedly

advanced toward him

with an unknown object

in his hand. According to

the press release, the man

“feared for his life” and

discharged a firearm. At

least one of the rounds

struck the 14-year-old

male, who was outside of

the Lexus. A knife was recovered

at the scene in the

vicinity of where the 14

year old was shot.

LIVING IS EASY

VINYL PLANK FLOORS

100% KID PROOF – 100% PET PROOF – 100% WATERPROOF

Alexa Burnell

Freelance Reporter

Inspiring children

through story and song are

new skills that Congressman

Brad Schneider (D-

Deerfield) can share with

his constituents when out

on the campaign trail.

The Deerfield native visited

the Northbrook Public

Library on Aug. 14, cohosting

a story hour with

Youth Service Librarian

Amanda Lopez. Schneider

read books about budding

scientists and performed

silly songs and riddles about

mice, puppies and kittens.

After the story hour,

he mingled with kids and

parents, taking photos

and sharing personal tales

about his own grown children

– one a zookeeper

and another involved in the

Navy.

After that, Schneider was

invited to visit the library’s

Collaboratory — a makerspace

unveiled in May

2018. There, he learned

about 3D printers, the embroidery

station, soldering

kits, the Peltz digital suit

and more.

The Library’s Executive

Director, Kate Hall, shared

the thought process behind

the Collaboratory and how

it has impacted the community

since inception.

“Not only is the Collaboratory

excellent use of tax

dollars, but it allows our

library to be a place where

creating occurs,” she said.

“Not long ago, a library

was just a place where instructional

material was

stored. Since then, libraries

have become a place

for people to gather and

connect. Now, we can also

offer a space for patrons of

all ages and with various

interests, to unite over the

desire to create.

“Best of all, the Collaboratory

is a safe space to

experiment, make mistakes

learn and grow. Our tagline

is ‘a place where community

happens’; we are glad

that Congressman Schneider

is here today to see

what our library offers.”

Cathleen Doyle, of digital

services, gave Schneider

a tutorial on the laser-etching

machine, giving him a

personalized keepsake to

take home as a reminder of

his time at the Library. She

also explained that the flexible

design of the Collaboratory

will allow the space

to grow with the changing

times, thus avoiding future

renovations.

“The Collaboratory is

just fabulous, giving anyone

the opportunity to see

the types of possibilities

that exist,” Schneider said.

Along with keeping

youngsters entertained and

learning all about the offerings

at the Collaboratory,

Schneider also participated

in a naturalization ceremony

earlier in the day, welcoming

95 new citizens. As

a way to thank the Library

for making him feel right at

home, Schneider graciously

donated several boxes of

books from the Library of

Congress.

NSYMCA campers team up with GBN

athletes for Color Run fundraiser

Submitted Content

Campers from the

North Suburban YMCA’s

summer day camp teamed

up with several Glenbrook

North High School

athletes, to showcase their

social responsibility efforts

by participating in

the Y’s first Color Run

race fundraiser.

The Aug. 9 event was

held during a camp herothemed

week and provided

an opportunity for NSYM-

CA campers to be Y heroes

themselves.

Participants in the Color

Run race wore white

T-shirts, while the other

campers and spectators

doused them in multi-colored

paint powders during

the race.

The NSYMCA provides

more than $500,000 in

subsidized memberships,

programs and community

services each year.

Due to several unplanned

emergency capital

repairs, completion

of the Y’s driveway entrance

and exit had to be

delayed. However, a generous

donor challenged

the Y to raise the funds to

complete the project with

a $50,000 matching grant.

The NSYMCA has almost

reached their part of

the goal, with the campers

raising more $1,000

through the color run.

“With character development

being an integral

part of our summer camp

curriculum, and social

responsibility a focus,

NSYMCA campers did

their part to help with a

great cause,” said Kathy

Fielding, NSYMCA vice

president of membership,

Glenbrook North High School athletes volunteered at the

NSYMCA’s “Color Run” race for campers. Pictured from

“You can tell the kids

had so much fun and it’s

great for them to learn

early in life the importance

of supporting a good

cause,” said Peter Bazianos,

a Glenbrook North

athlete who volunteered.

“We had a blast and we

were thrilled to be a part

of it.”

Gangnam Ramen takes diners on tour of Korean cuisine

Jason Addy

Contributing Editor

After decades of

wowing her family and

friends at get-togethers

and church events, Keum

Ahn — with support from

her husband and children

— decided it was time

to show off her culinary

skills to the world.

The Ahn family opened

the doors to Gangnam Ramen

in February at 952

Harlem Ave. in Glenview,

and local residents and

Korean cuisine lovers

quickly took notice, said

Keum’s son Daniel, who

left his job in corporate

marketing to help ensure

the success of his family’s

first restaurant.

The reception has been

“surprisingly very positive,”

he said. “The feedback

so far is great. We

love the local community

here in Glenview. We

have a lot of regulars who

are very supportive, so

we’re grateful for that.”

“In the beginning, it

was actually really hard,”

Keum said through Daniel,

who translated on her

behalf. But once Daniel

and his sister stepped in to

help out with operations,

Keum found her rhythm

and started winning over

customers.

In the first six months,

Gangnam Ramen has converted

many who stopped

in to try the “half-traditional,

half-modern” fusion

of Korean flavors into

regular diners, he said.

Most of the dishes on

the menu started from traditional

Korean recipes

that Keum learned while

growing up in the southernmost

reaches of South

Korea with 10 siblings.

Keum said she has taken

those recipes and “Americanized”

them slightly as

a way to introduce customers

to Korean cuisine.

The menu also features

a few options for those

looking to sample some

of the more exotic dishes

of Korea, such as the seafood

udon and spicy rice

cakes.

While many of the

dishes — like bibimbap

and ramen — have rustic

roots, some have much

more regal backgrounds,

like the Korean BBQ

bulgogi, a dish once reserved

for Korean royalty

and special events.

“I see ourselves as a

tour guide for Korean

culture,” Daniel said, alluding

to the wide range

of dishes featured on the

menu.

The interior of Gangnam

Ramen also offers

diners a dichotomy between

traditional and

modern, with one side of

the restaurant featuring

muted tones and marble

tables and the other side

bursting with colors and

more modern wooden tabletops.

Keum and Daniel recently

took a group of

22nd Century Media editors

on their tour of Korean

cuisine via some of

Gangnam Ramen’s most

popular dishes.

The experience started

with an order of Gangnam

Ramen’s Korean

fried chicken ($10 for a

large order), which features

deep-fried chicken

nuggets glazed in a Korean

chilli sauce, and an

order of the Korean BBQ

fries ($8.50), a serving of

French fries topped with

marinated ribeye beef,

sour cream sauce, scallions

and housemade Korean

barbecue sauce.

We also sampled the

fried dumplings ($8 for

eight dumplings), a staple

of many Asian restaurants.

Next, the Ahn family

served us dumpling ramen

($10.50), a large bowl of

broth filled with dumplings,

egg, mushrooms,

peppers, onions and other

vegetables. Keum simmers

chicken bones for

48 hours to give the broth

its depth of flavor, though

the restaurant also offers a

vegetarian ramen option.

Gangnam Ramen’s beef

bibimbap ($12 with hot

stone bowl) is a gourmet

take on a dish that was

born out of necessity. Historically,

bibimbap was

a way for families to use

up leftover vegetables and

meats, but Gangnam Ramen’s

dish uses only the

finest ingredients, Daniel

said.

The beef bibimbap is

served atop rice in a hot

stone bowl and topped

with bean sprouts, squash,

bok choy, cabbage, carrot

and mushroom, with

a fried egg placed in the

center. The hot stone

bowl is meant to act like

a skillet to slightly cook

some of the vegetables as

they’re mixed in with the

rice, Daniel said.

To finish off our feast,

we sampled the Korean

BBQ bulgogi ($16), a

dish of thinly sliced ribeye

beef marinated and

sauteed with mushrooms,

carrots, onions, scallions

and broccoli, and served

with sides of rice and kimchi.

Gangnam Ramen also

Gangnam Ramen’s Korean fried chicken ($10 for a large order) features deep-fried

chicken nuggets glazed in a Korean chilli sauce. Eric DeGrechie/22nd Century Media

has some authentic Korean

snacks to give diners “a

glimpse of the culture that

they can’t get anywhere

else,” Daniel said.

“Some of the snacks

that I grew up with, some

of the popsicles that I

grew up eating and enjoying,

I wanted them to

By Jenelle Riley

experience that as well

so they get a little bit of a

fuller experience, beyond

the Korean dishes,” he

said.

Schroeder prepared for different

approach with new group

Michal Dwojak, Sports Editor

Michael Schroeder finds

himself with a different set

of cards than he’s had in the

past few seasons.

The Glenbrook North

head coach starts the season

with one returning varsity

player after the Spartans

competed with the best in

the state the last few years.

Schroeder’s new roster will

feature many first-time

players who don’t have the

full experience he’s had on

his varsity lineup, but excited

for the challenge as

he approaches this season

differently.

“We are in a rebuild ...”

Schroeder said. “There’s

a lot of potential to make

improvements. We’re not

going to win state this year,

but we’re looking forward

to those girls bettering

themselves as the year goes

on.”

Part of the challenge

of getting the new varsity

members prepared for the

elevated level of play will

be having them adjust to

playing all 18 holes. Schroeder

noted how many of his

new players don’t have the

experience of playing all

to quickly adjust once the

He’ll also want his players

to work on their game

Spartans will enter with

the head coach wants to focus

on different aspects of

the game so they can see

progress individually while

also improving their scores

as the season goes on.

The Spartans will face

some of the best golfers in

the state during their rounds

this season against other

North Shore schools, but

Schroeder wants his players

to only focus on their

own game, while taking

some notes from the best.

“This year, my approach

is to make sure that the

Northbrook 11U White wins regular season division title

The Northbrook 11U

White capped off its 2019

travel baseball season by

finishing 15-1, taking first

place in the Lake Shore

Feeder Baseball League’s

11U South Division.

The team faced a strong

undefeated Wilmette Blue

team twice in the final

week of the season and

defeated them twice 9-8

and 4-3 to clinch the division

title on the second to

last day of the season. The

coaches credit the team’s

motivation to practice and

desire to get better as the

biggest change versus the

2018 season.

“During our very first

practice back in January,

we asked the team what

they wanted to accomplish

this season and the team

unanimously said that they

wanted to go after four

more wins by winning

10 games,” coach Brian

Jorbin said. “We talked

about how hard work,

having the right mindset

and working better as a

team would be the only

way to achieve that goal.

Throughout the season,

the coaches would offer

“optional” batting practice

90 minutes before each

game and every single

player showed up. This

is a credit to their dedication

as well as our parent’s

commitment. As coachs,

we couldn’t be prouder.”

The team also took first

place in the 11U Silver

Division of Northbrook’s

Fourth of July Tournament.

The team won two

games and lost one during

pool play by defeating

Warren Park 6-5 and Mundelein

Black 6-2 before

losing to Evanston 4-3.

During round one of the

playoffs, Northbrook defeated

a very tough Schaumburg

Flyers team 11-10.

Northbrook trailed

7-0 after two innings but

chipped away at the early

lead to eventually tie the

contest late in the game

and win in extra innings.

NORTH SHORE

The team faced a strong

Niles Wolves team in the

championship game where

once again the boys faced

an uphill battle by being

down 4-0 after four innings.

Spartans boys golf enters season with confidence

3

Michal Dwojak, Sports Editor

There’s a common sense

of confidence amongst

Glenbrook North golfers

as they prepare to start a

new season.

The Spartans return an

experienced squad that

features golfers who just

completed their best summers

while blending in

some talented freshmen

into the mix. Head coach

Justin Gerbich hasn’t had

too much time to talk

about goals for the season

with tryouts taking place

and a quick season start

on Thursday, Aug. 15,

against Glenbrook North,

but there’s a common understanding

amongst the

Spartans golfers of what

they want to do this fall:

go to state.

“They know how good

the guys are on the team,

where they’re at,” Gerbich

said. “Sometimes without

trying to sound too egotistical,

you have to have a

goal and I don’t think it’s

unrealistic to think that.”

GBN features a lot of

depth, which Gerbich admitted

is good, but could

also come cause some issues

for the head coach.

The issue with having so

much talent is trying to

figure out which golfers

should make the top-six

rotation and which lineup

will help the Spartans realize

their goal come October.

Gerbich noted that the

first three or four golfers

usually take care of business

for the head coach

and help make the decision

easier, but there are

the remaining spots that

the Spartans will fight

for. Much of the decision-making

will happen

throughout the regular

season when golfers advance

to qualifiers for different

invites.

The competition has

been well-received so far

into the young season.

For an individual sport,

high school golf’s position

battles has brought players

together. When one player

does well at a invite, the

other Spartans know they

need to turn it on in order

to keep the competition

going.

“For the most part competition

is healthy,” Gerbich

said. “They want to

feed off of each other, it’s

a matter of keeping everyone

happy and healthy.”

The competition might

be healthy, but the Spartans

also know what the

goal is, no matter how

long they’ve been on the

team.

“It’s understood among

us,” freshman Robby

O’Regan said.

area, regular season competition

will help the Spartans

learn quickly what it’s

like to compete against

the state’s best golfers

and what they need to do

in order to reach the goal

they’ve set for themselves

this year.

While the bar has been

set for what they want to

care of this season, Gerbich

knows that he has

a great group of golfers.

There might be some

times when things get

testy to find out what will

help the Spartans reach

their collective goal, but

they know the bigger picture

of the season will be

just as important.

“It’s important to play

well and win, but it’s also

fun to have a good team,

fun team to coach, that

works hard,” Gerbich said.

“I think we have that.”

Staff Report

The start of a new

school year marks the

official switch over for

Glenbrook North athletics

from the Central Suburban

League North division

to the South.

GBN was part of the

CSL’s inaugural season

in 1965 and spent a majority

of its time as part

of the North before the

league announced in June

2018 that North would

switch divisions with

Niles North. The Spartans

will join the South, which

includes Evanston, Glenbrook

South, New Trier,

Niles West and Maine

South.

GBN athletes, coaches

and fans are familiar with

the other members of the

conference, but it’s always

a good idea to get

some more information

about members of the

South since the Spartans

will face off and battle

for conference championships

with them. GBN

has played against all of

these teams in the past because

they are in the same

conference, but for some

sports, the changeover

will mean Spartans fans

will see and travel to these

schools more than they

did in the past.

Part of the change was

part of a new way of

aligning the schools with

larger student bodies together

in the same conference,

linked with success

in the past few years.

The Tower put together

a cheat sheet for fans

about the other schools so

they could become familiar

and know what to expect

once the competition

begins in the fall.

Evanston

Year founded:

1883

Town: Evanston

Nickname:

Wildkit

Football complex: Memorial

Stadium

Gym: Beardsley Gym

Quick Notes: The Wildkits

have always had

strong basketball and

track and field programs,

but they are always competitive

in other sports.

While the journey out to

Evanston might be longer

than it was traveling to

Deerfield, it’ll be worth

the trip, even if the Spartans

don’t win. If you’ve

never been to campus, it’s

definitely worth the trip,

with a historic school that

includes great venues to

check out almost every

sport. Evanston will make

you feel like you’re going

back in time a bit, but the

athletics programs will

show you how modern

and good they can be.

Glenbrook South

Year founded:

1962

Town: Glenview

Nickname: Titans

Football complex: John

Davis Stadium

Gym: Titan Dome

Quick Notes: Spartan

fans might be most familiar

with this member

of the CSL South. The

two district rivals will be

united, creating plenty of

clashes between the rivals,

including a much-anticipated

homecoming football

game this fall. While

some might worry that the

rivalry will be worsened

because of more games

between the schools, what

could be better than battling

out a district rival for

a conference championship?

GBS fluctuates with

which sport it’s good in,

but both soccer programs

have taken off as well as

others as well. GBN fans

and athletes will enjoy

their shortest trip to an opposing

school.

New Trier

Year founded:

1901

Town: Winnetka

Nickname:

Trevians

Football Complex: Robert

Naughton Field

Gym: Leslie Gates

Gymnasium

Quick Notes: It’s hard

to find a sport that New

Trier isn’t good in. With

about an average of 4,000

students per school year,

the Trevians have quite

the talent pool to pull

from. New Trier leads

the state with more than

120 state championships,

leading in both boys and

girls state titles. Spartans

fans will need to make

sure they know which

campus they go to for

games, with some athletics

taking place at the

Winnetka campus while

other events take place

at the Northfield campus.

Once they get there

though, they’ll enjoy the

cool venues the Trevians

feature just like Evanston.

With modern facilities for

almost every sport, traveling

to either campus will

be a fun journey, especially

if the Spartans end the

day or night victorious.

Niles West

Year founded:

1959

Town: Skokie

Nickname:

Wolves

Football Complex: Varsity

Stadium

Gym: N/A

Quick Notes: Niles West

will be a nice trip down

Willow and down south

the Edens Expressway.

The Wolves might not finish

at the top, but they usually

put together strong,

competitive teams that

GBN can’t take lightly.

The boys gymnastics team

won the school’s most-recent

state championship in

2016. The athletic campus

is all very compact and not

separated like some of the

other CSL South schools,

making it less likely that

Spartans fans will have a

hard time finding the Spartans

playing against one of

the Wolves teams.

Maine South

Year founded:

1964

Town: Park

Ridge

Nickname:

Hawks

Football complex: Stadium

Gym: Spectator Gym

Quick Notes: When

many people think about

Maine South, they think

football, and there’s good

reason why. The Hawks

have dominated the Illinois

football scene in the

21st century and continue

to excel in other sports as

well. The Hawks feature

some of the best athletes

in the state, making any

Maine South team worthy

of much anticipation in any

sport. Maine South will be

quite the hike for Spartans

fans, as the school will be

the farthest North fans will

have to travel to.
