Candy-like flavors attract teens MEGAN SZOSTAK LAKE FOREST HIGH SCHOOL

Sound teacher, sound musician. Lake Forest High School senior Megan Szostak shares two of her gifts when she becomes a Bravo Buddy in the summer for Bravo Waukegan, a Lake Forest-based organization with a mission to foster academic, artistic and personal growth for Waukegan public school students through music. The Tufts University-bound violist (she teaches violin to elementary and middle school students) has loved classical music for years and could probably teach the history of Romantic era music to a class of college students … today.

STANDOUT STUDENT

Viva violist Megan Szostak! BY BILL MCLEAN DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

Megan Szostak, a longtime competitive Irish dancer, gets a kick out of music, too. “I’m totally a classical music nerd,” the Lake Forest High School senior admits with a laugh. “On my way to this interview, I listened to WFMT [98.7 FM, a classical music radio station] in the car. Music history? I eat it up. I love the music from the Romantic era. “And the subject I chose for my [AP U.S.] history class was American music.” Szostak plays the viola, and she teaches violin to elementary and middle school students as a Bravo Buddy, a Lake Forest-based Bravo Waukegan program. A part of the organization’s mission is to foster academic, artistic and personal growth for Waukegan public school students through music. Bravo Buddies work one-on-one with budding musicians during four-week summer camps. “It’s cool to see students make progress after a few lessons,” says Szostak, a symphony orchestra member at LFHS since her freshman year and a scholarship performer with the Midwest Young Artists Conservatory in Highwood. “They usually start timidly. Sometimes you have to get creative to get them interested and excited about classical music. Most kids like pop music. When I hear that I’ll say, ‘OK, we’ll start with that.’ You cater to their interests on the first day. “You can’t force them to play Mozart right away,” she adds. Two years ago Szostak — an attendee at the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Muskegon County, Michigan — wanted to be an astrophysicist. Not anymore. Her dream major in college: linguistic anthropology.

Megan Szostak

“Probably not many jobs in that field,” she says with another laugh. “But I love languages and cultures. I speak French and some German and bits and pieces of other languages.” Szostak found out in midDecember she had been accepted by Tufts University. She said yes (and maybe oui and ja) to the Massachusetts school, where she’ll likely minor in music and take classes that could lead to a career in journalism. “Working for National Geographic … now that would be an ideal job,” Szostak says. “I also think working with the UN would be fascinating. Or maybe I’ll end up being a music historian.” One of her music mentors has been Robert Bassill, a violinist and the orchestra director at LFHS. Bassill and Szostak coproduced a school musical last spring. “Mr. Bassill is talented, hilarious and incredibly knowledgeable in music,” says Szostak, who also likes to talk classical music with her good f riend, Kimie Han, an LFHS student and another talented violinist. Szostak’s favorite movie star has won five Academy Awards — none for an onscreen role. Composer/conductor/pianist John Williams, 85, has composed film scores for Jaws, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Schindler’s List and Star Wars, among other

notable flicks. “The way he makes music for a visual story … he’s the best,” says Szostak, the daughter of Rob and Jenny, a pair of rock, pop and country music fans. “The music John Williams creates always goes so well with a movie’s scenes. “I’d love to ask him about the process. He

has to start with an idea, something abstract, and then come up with something concrete through music. But the music he comes up with could still be interpreted in many ways. Music in a movie often transfixes me.” Irish dancing mesmerized her at any early age. Szostak was 2 when she first observed dancers performing a jig. She found herself in a class in no time, kicking and jumping and dancing with other beginners. Berths in regional competitions followed. Music, though, became her top passion. A couple of one-name artists produce the soundtrack Szostak gets to enjoys at home. Daily. Cher isn’t one of them. Nor Bono. Their names are Beaky, a pet cockatiel, and Kiwi, a pet parakeet.

Injuries in Irish dance are primarily lower body with foot, ankle and knee pain particularly with young, growing athletes. “I always tell the dancers, the bones grow before the muscles and tendons, so now your body is trying to do in the end with longer bones, but not necessarily longer hamstrings,” said Jaworski. Jaworski explained that she was in the right place at the right time when Neurosport Physical

Professional dancers in musicals like Hamilton are at risk of various injuries because they put in long hours perfecting their performances. This is true for youth dancers as well – especially children and teens who specialize at ever-younger ages. “I see younger dancers doing a particular two or three minute routine 20 or 30 times a week if not more,” said Dr. Carrie Jaworski, medical director for Hamilton Chicago. “So anytime you’re doing repetitive motions in any sport you set yourself up for risk of increased injuries because the body is being asked to do something more often than it’s used to.” Jaworski is the director of Primary Care Sports Medicine for the NorthShore Orthopedic Institute, which has offices in Glenview and Chicago. During her 17 years of experience in sports medicine she’s found that ballet, modern dance and Irish dance can result in different injuries. Jaworski explained that in classical ballet, the common injuries are in the lower body for female dancers, so backs are often an area of pain, as well as the feet, buttocks and ankle. “These injuries could result in Achilles tenYoung dancers are at risk of the same injuries as pros from the stage donitis or ankle sprains if they come down from a jump incorrectly,” she said. “However, the male dancers often have upper Therapy reached out to her and her partners at body injuries to the shoulders and neck just from NorthShore Orthopedic Institute and asked her the straining of lifting the ballerinas.” to become the medical director.

dance program. Jaworski emphasized the importance of getting up at the same time every day if possible. “Keeping on a schedule tends to work better for the body, but sleep is sleep,” she said. Jaworski also recommended that dancers focus early on taking better care of their bodies from a nutritional standpoint. “They should treat their bodies as part of their sports equipment and make sure that they’re getting a good range of different vitamins and minerals through food preferably, as supplements, powders, shakes and bars are more of a secondary choice,” said Jaworski. Jaworski warned that dancers should be mindful of ignoring symptoms and soldiering through the pain. She said to see a doctor if you’re limping or something hurts due to a particular position, or swelling and bruising could be signs of a more serious injury like a muscle tear or a fracture that may worsen over time. At the first sign of any soreness or pain, the practice recommends icing for the first 48 hours. Of course you don’t have to be a professional dancer to incur injuries, and common sense applies. Do you have any tips to prevent injuries among average women who are dancing in heels at weddings and other parties? “Wear shoes you’re comfortable in even if they’re high, make sure you can walk in them,” said Jaworski. “And always be aware of your alcohol consumption, because it sometimes gets the best of people.” For dancers 18 and younger who have no interest in slowing down, Jaworski said there’s research that shows your risk of injury goes up when you are doing any activity, any sport or athletic endeavor more hours per week than you are years old. For example, if you’re 12 and you’re dancing 20 hours a week, your risk for injury is exponentially increased. “I have that conversation with all of my young see a 14- or 15-year-old girl with a herniated disc in her back,” she said.

Police seek duck-boot-wearing bank robbery suspect BY ADRIENNE FAWCETT DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

Police are seeking help from the community in identifying a man suspected of robbing Fifth Third Bank in Lake Forest and possibly also Deerfield Bank & Trust in Deerfield. In both heists, a man walked up to the bank counter and presented the teller with a note

demanding money. The Lake Forest robbery took place just past noon on January 6, and the Deerfield robbery occurred at 4:52 p.m. December 29 Lake Forest Police Department Deputy Chief Rob Copeland said police and the FBI are investigating whether the robberies are connected. The suspect in the Lake Forest robbery was described as a white man in his late 20s to mid 30s, 5’9” to 6’ tall, 18 to 210 pounds. He was wearing blue jeans, a dark jacket, dark hat and

ski mask, white gloves and tan duck boots. The suspect in the Deerfield bank robbery is described as having similar physical size and height, but he was wearing blue jeans, a grey knit hat, a black ski mask that covered his face from the nose down, a tan jacket and black gloves. Like the suspect in the Lake Forest bank’s video images, the Deerfield suspect was wearing tan duck boots. According to a Deerfield Police Department press release, the suspect took a piece of paper

It’s been quiet at the Dunkin Donuts in downtown Lake Forest since a fatal shooting in the parking lot out back on January 3. Two days later, the cashier who was on duty at the time of the incident found it hard to talk about what happened. “It’s so tragic,” she said, her eyes filling with tears. “She looked like such a nice person.” The shooting deaths of Navy Lt. Claire Van Landingham, 27, and Ryan Zike, 33,

nounced dead. Lake County Coroner Dr. Howard Cooper issued a preliminary autopsy report January 4 confirming VanLandingham died from multiple gunshot wounds and Zike died from a single gunshot wound to the head. VanLandingham, who was a dentist at the James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center at Naval Station Great Lakes, lived in one of the apartments above the Dunkin Donuts building, according to Copeland. Parking for those units is in a lot behind the shop. The Lovell Center is about 4.4 miles north of where the shooting took place. Copeland confirmed police found two

according to the police. Zike worked for the Park District of Highland Park as a naturalist at Heller Nature Center from September 14, 2017, until just over a month later when he voluntarily resigned. “He was in good standing,” said Elizabeth Gogola, director of communications and marketing for the park district, adding that he did not provide a reason for his resignation. During his brief tenure at the nature center, Zike’s responsibilities included overseeing public programs, teams course, scout and custom programs, camps, and the Honey Bee program, according to a press release issued by the park district to

appear to be a murder-suicide stemming from their past relationship. Lake Forest Deputy Police Chief Rob Copeland said police are fairly confident Zike, of Louisville, Ky., shot VanLandingham, a Lake Forest resident, and then took his own life. A gun was found in the parking lot. Copeland said he believes it belongs to Zike, whom he referred to as the offender, but the Lake County Major Crimes Task Force is tracing the weapon’s chain of sale from the manufacturer to its owner. Copeland said he does not know yet where the firearm was purchased. Police originally got a call about shots fired at 6:20 a.m. January 3 behind Dunkin Donuts and responded to the shooting. Officers found Zike dead. VanLandingham was transported to Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital, where she was proTHE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

vehicles that had been in a crash in the lot when they arrived on the scene. He had no further comment about the crash. Though he said several witnesses have been interviewed he would neither confirm nor deny whether anyone saw the shooting. Investigators with the task force said the shooting was a “domestic incident,” and that the two were in a prior relationship that ended in late September/early October 2017. VanLandingham attended Culver Academies in Culver, Indiana, for high school, and Indiana University in Bloomington for college. She graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry in 2017. The school is in Louisville, Kentucky, where Zike, 33, was from, according to media reports. The two broke up some time between September and October 2017,

announce Zike’s hiring in September. Prior to joining the Park District, Zike was a naturalist/recreation supervisor for the Jefferson Memorial Forest in Kentucky for seven years, and he had a Bachelor of Science in Recreation and Park Administration from Eastern Kentucky University. On January 4, the day after the shooting, the coroner’s office conducted an autopsy on Zike and determined he died from a gunshot wound to the head. “Toxicology results are pending on both,” stated Dr. Cooper, the coroner. “Both families have been notified and our deepest condolences go out to them. This is truly an awful tragedy.” The park district’s Gogola mirrored Dr. Cooper’s thoughts: “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families affected by this tragic incident,” she said.

Slyce Pizza opens in Highwood BYJULIE KEMP PICK DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

SLYCE Coal Fired Pizza Company opened on December 19 on the site that previously housed Ginger’s (and before that Bridie McKenna’s) at 254 Green Bay Road in Highwood. Nicole Fry, SLYCE Highwood’s general manager, explained that after seven years in Wauconda the restaurant management decided to open a second location in Highwood. Current Wauconda Chef Mike McElwee is joining Fry in Highwood. What makes coal-fired pizza different from other pizzas? Fry said coal is the hottest and cleanest burning fossil fuel. “The high temperature allows our pizzas to cook in three to four minutes, which results in the perfect balance of char, crunch, and chew that pizza lovers crave,” she added. Owners and mother/daughter duo Laurie and Brittany Barth are thrilled to bring their authentic Neapolitan pizza dining experience to another community-driven, food-inspired town. Fry described one of SLYCE’s best-sellers, the #13, which has dried figs, gorgonzola cheese, balsamic glaze and prosciutto. Other favorites include the #11, an egg pizza, and the newest addition is #16, which is made with burrata (fresh Italian cheese

beef sandwiches are prepared. The chef will brine and marinate the turkey and beef in house, and then slice them to order. The sandwiches are served on SLYCE’s homemade focaccia bread with a side or chips. Though there are seven salads to choose from, Fry said the Sicilian Salad is SLYCE’s best-selling salad that is served with homemade sweet mustard basil vinaigrette dressing. SLYCE’s bar serves beer and wine, as well as the restaurant’s special SLYCE Basil Ale. The dessert menu includes: SLYCE Cannoli and Italian gelato from Frost in Highland Park.

Distractions are an attraction New Trier rookie gymnast Barkal loves competing in noisy environments BY BILL MCLEAN SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

It’s all still new to New Trier junior and Trevians rookie gymnast Darcy Barkal, the sporadic cacophony associated with high school gymnastics meets. Loud applause here. Shrilly cheers there. The thuds generated by the landings of sound dismounts. Floor music. Blocking out the noise in the middle of a routine is almost as crucial to a gymnast as executing a tricky routine. “I love the atmosphere at meets like this,” Barkal said at the 14-team Evanston Invitational on Jan. 6, in a cozy gym slightly more spacious than that of a walk-in closet. “That’s the best, hearing your teammates pull for you, shout for you,” added Barkal, a clubonly competitor at Glenview-based Dreams Gymnastics in 2015 and 2016 before joining American Academy of Gymnastics in Wheeling last fall. American Academy veterans described the radically different nature of high school meets

“I’m never going to forget the cheers and that celebration with my teammates. That’s the top highlight of my season.”

This one was louder than the first. Barkal had suffered a broken tibia. A cast became a regular part of her wardrobe for three to four months. Rehab and time away from the mats tested her. So did another injury — a stress fracture in her back. “I wasn’t sure, at that point, about continuing in gymnastics,” Barkal said. But she healed and resumed throwing highlevel routines. Pistorius got wind of Barkal’s intent to give high school gymnastics a try from a coach/friend of hers at Dreams. Pistorius later met with Barkal’s mother, Debbie, at a Starbucks to discuss team rules, expectations, etc. Darcy Barkal competed a Yurchenko layout vault for the first time since the leg break at a high school meet last month. The only sound she heard upon landing it was the collective reaction of her teammates. The decibel level ranked somewhere between jet-taking-off and deafening. That happens when you earn a mid-9 score and you’re a brand-new addition to the team. “I’m never going to forget the cheers and that celebration with my teammates,” Barkal says. “That’s the top highlight of my season.” With plenty of season left, including the big state-series meets in late January and the first half of February. “Darcy still comes across as quiet and super serious, kind of shy,” Pistorius said. “But she’s silly deep down; I truly believe that. It’s only a matter of time before she breaks out and shows all of us her silly and fun side when she’s around her teammates.”

Notable: NT girls gymnastics coach Jennifer Pistorius’ response, shortly after an acquaintance showed her the Trevians’ winning score of 147.125 points at last weekend’s Evanston Invite: “I love my team.” … NT sophomore Maeve compared to club gatherings to Barkal. But Murdock took runner-up honors in the allhearing about the elements vs. experiencing around (37.15 average) at the Evanston Invite on Jan. 6, one spot in front of classmate Rachel them? Night vs. Day. Zun (36.75). Avery Faulkner, another New Trier Barkal, of Glencoe, is one of the Trevians’ four sophomore, finished fifth in the all-around with first-time varsity members; the others are fresha 35.55.

Embracing his role is key with Ohr Unselfish senior provides valuable depth to New Trier boys swim team BY BILL MCLEAN SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

New Trier boys swimming coach Josh Runkle arrived at the school’s pool at 7:30 a.m. for an 8 a.m. practice last month. Nothing unusual about that. There, to greet him? Not a coach. Not a team manager. Pierson Ohr, senior swimmer, was there. “He beat me to the pool,” Runkle recalled at last weekend’s Evanston Invitational. “That’s the type of kid he is. Works super hard, always ready to go, and he’s a real good team kid, a real good kid, a solid guy. “I ought to give Pierson a key to the pool. Then again, that might give our athletic director (Augie Fontanetta) a reason to fire me.” An underrated key to the Trevians’ success this winter is the 5-foot-10, 160-pound Ohr, who does a little bit of almost everything — sprints, breaststroke, relay duties, butterfly — and does it all without thinking about himself. “We have a really nice team,” said Ohr, a member of NT’s state-qualifying 200-yard freestyle relay team last winter. “It’s truly like a family, with my best friends around me at practices and at meets. The great swimmers we have push me and help me. It’s fun to go to practice, even when, at times, you don’t feel like doing the laps you have to do. But, with good friends,

“Such a great athlete. The things he does in the weight room, the way he jumps to get ready for races behind the blocks, his starts … Pierson, I’m telling you, doesn’t realize how athletic he is.”

team, next to Charlie, tend to think, ‘I’m not that good.’ You know what, though? They are good swimmers. “We’re not just a team with three super studs. Others need to step up, and they have. The beauty of this team? All of our guys have embraced this approach.” Ohr anchored the 200 medley relay with a 22.0 split at the Evanston Invite on Jan. 6, following legs from Patrick Gridley, Scheinfeld and Ryan Gridley. The crew’s first-place time of 1:35.38 edged a quartet from Arrowhead Union (Wisconsin) High School (1:35.74) and supplanted a meet record that had stood since 2012. swimming all those laps doesn’t always feel like a “Pierson said to me, ‘My split needs to be faster,’ burden.” ” Runkle said. The formidable onus for teams that compete Ohr later helped NT’s 200 free relay — with against New Trier is a three-headed one: seniors sophomore Billy Pearce, Ryan Gridley and junior Charlie Scheinfeld, Patrick Gridley and Ryan anchor Nick Torre — clock a third-place time of Gridley. Scheinfeld is a two-time state champion 1:28.13. in the 100 breaststroke, and he joined the Gridley Ohr also placed 19th in the 100 breaststroke twins and Patrick Drake (Class of 2017) to win (1:04.98) and 19th in the 100 butterfly (57.22). the 400 freestyle relay at state last February. “The butterfly isn’t a strong event for us,” said “Charlie and the Gridleys are not normal high Runkle, whose squad won the 17-team meet title school swimmers,” Runkle said. “Those three, with a 255.5-point total. “I asked Pierson, ‘How they’re outstanding, elite. I mean, look at what about swimming the fly for us today?’ He said, Charlie does whenever he swims — he creates a ‘OK, fine.’ path of destruction.

Also an athlete — and a decorated one. The sophomore placed seventh in the 100 freestyle and swam on three top-seven relays at the state meet at New Trier last fall. There, to hand Joelle flowers after the 100 free, was big brother Pierson, who served as an on-deck volunteer worker during the two-day meet. “I’d like to swim in college, maybe make a team as a walk-on,” said Ohr, who got his first taste of varsity swimming as a freshman, when he trained with the parent club’s members during winter break and appreciated every minute of it. “That was such a different team atmosphere, getting to work with our varsity swimmers three years ago. All of them were serious, committed to the sport.” Just like Ohr is today.

at the meet on Jan. 6: Patrick Gridley (1st, 200 IM, 1:55.31; 2nd, 100 backstroke, 51.81); Ryan Gridley (2nd, 100 free, 47.18); Scheinfeld (2nd, 100 breaststroke, 56.05; 5th, 200 IM, 1:56.9); Vandergraaf (5th, 200 free, 1:47.49); and Tommy Hackley (5th, 500 free, 4:53.22).

THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND


SPORTS

AT THE TURN Loyola Academy races to the top of the class at the halfway point of the 2017-18 season We’re at the turn in the 2017-18 boys basketball season. And how are the teams in The North Shore Weekend circulation area doing at the midpoint of the season?

extensive skill sets. They are learning how to get after it. Dad (Dennis) was a star player at Evanston High School who went on to play four years at the University of Texas-Arlington. • New Trier’s Boehm and Brayboy. The killer B’s are not only big, but they’re also talented. Against most teams, they are impenetrable in the paint. • Highland Park’s Tal and Daniel Michelon. They give the Giants a terrific 1-2 punch. Both have range and are excellent at shooting off the dribble. • Glenbrook North’s Kellen Witherell and Frank Siegien. Having a pair of 6-5 players in the starting lineup is always good — especially when they’re good at scoring and rebounding. • North Shore Country Day’s Mazeed Olewuh and Braden Adamson-Tate. Olewuh, a junior guard, and Adamson-Tate, a senior guard, earned all-tourney recognition at the Christian Liberty Academy Tournament. Olewuh made 14 threepointers and averaged 17.0 points per game in the four-game set. Adamson-Tate averaged 10 points and eight assists in the tourney.

Here’s our take: TOP TEAM

• Loyola Academy (14-2). The Ramblers are … red hot. After beating St. Viator on Jan. 8, they have won eight straight games. They spent their holiday break winning the Gulfcoast Holiday Hoopfest in Naples, Florida. They never stop bringing the hard-core defensive pressure. And they are emerging quickly on the offensive end. RUNNER-UP

• New Trier (9-2). With twin towers Ciaran Brayboy (6-foot-9) and Spencer Boehm (6-8), the Trevians are extremely difficult to match up against. They have cooled off a little — but only a little — after starting the season 8-0. DARKHORSES

• Highland Park (8-6). After beginning the season 0-4, the Giants have found their rhythm. They’re led by a talented, tight-knit senior class. They trust one another and play exceedingly well together. They went 3-1 in the tough Jack Tosh Holiday Classic in York. • Glenbrook South (6-8). The Titans, who struggled miserably early (1-6 start), are finding their way and adjusting well to new head coach Phil Ralston. They went 3-1 at the Wheeling Hardwood Classic. Beating St. Viator in overtime was purely unexpected. Or, was it? • Glenbrook North (10-4). Veteran head coach David Weber has assembled a deep and dangerous squad. The Spartans have a variety of players who can fill it up on any given night. PLAYER OF THE YEAR CANDIDATES

• Loyola’s Kevin Cunningham. Long-distance shooting ace was named the MVP at the tourney in Naples. The senior guard is a true zone buster. Moreover, he has developed into a complete player. • Highland Park’s Ziv Tal. Three-year starter continues to add “stuff ” to his game. He earned all-tourney honors at the 32-team tourney at York. He plays with plenty of savvy. And he has the ability to take over a game. • New Trier’s Andrew Kirkpatrick. A three-year varsity player, “Captain Kirk” plays the game without fear. The gritty senior guard has improved his ball skills. He lives for “the last shot”. SURPRISE PLAYERS

• Lake Forest’s Ben Gibson. The 6-6 senior, who only played sparingly a year ago, came out firing and quickly established himself as a player to watch. He’s been a revelation for coach Phil LaScala and the Scouts (5-10). An inside-outside player, he can rack up points in a hurry. • Loyola’s Pete Mangan. Versatile senior is a winner on the court. He’s daring with the ball in his hands, and he’s hard-nosed on the defensive end. THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

THE UNSUNGS

• New Trier’s Brian Conaghan. He’s become a totally different player. He leads. He scores. He guards. And he’ll battle you to the bitter end.

POTENTIAL BREAKOUT PLAYERS

• Loyola’s Vahe Kalayjian. Senior guard is a fine shooter who could fill a key need (an additional scoring source) for the Ramblers. • Glenbrook South’s Jimmy McMahon. Gutsy SMOOTH OPERATORS • Glenbrook North’s Evan Barnes. Senior guard two-sport athlete — all-conference soccer player possesses a sweet-looking three-point shot. He in the fall — keeps raising his level of play. He’s used perfect form to hit eight straight threes and finding his role on this wildly improved GBS squad. • Highland Park’s Jonny Koenig. The senior score 30 in a win over Grayslake North on Dec. guard finally broken into the starting lineup this 19. • Highland Park’s Noah Shutan. Known for winter. He’s looking more and more comfortable dropping dimes — he had 10 assists in a win over all the time. He could be vital to HP’s success. • Lake Forest’s Jed Thomas. There’s a lot to like Sandburg in the York Tournament — the senior guard plays the game in effortless fashion. A star with the 6-3 senior point guard. He’s a do-it-all shortstop on the HP baseball team, he’s silky kind of player, who can really shoot, pass and rebound. Expect him to step up big in the second smooth on both ends of the court. • Glenbrook South’s Will King. Dependable half. junior guard doesn’t get rattled in tight situations. DYNAMIC DUOS He possesses a high basketball IQ which allows • Lake Forest Academy’s Matey Juric and him to make good decisions. He’s that guy — a coach on the floor. He earned all-tourney honors Vasilije Vukmanovic. The two seniors, who hail from Canada, are a fun pair to watch. Both are at the Hardwood Classic. • New Trier’s Griffin Ryan. Coaches love players incredibly athletic and play the game at breakneck like Ryan. The 6-5 junior plays the game the right speed. • Loyola’s Bennett Kwiecinski and Jordan Kwieway with a terrific attitude. You can count on him cinski. The 6-7 twins are quickly adjusting to the to get a key basket or rebound. varsity game. The sophomores are mobile with

• Glenbrook South’s Gavin Morse. Like McMahon, he’s a soccer standout for the Titans. He’s got a nice feel for the game. • Lake Forest’s Sean Trkla. Senior guard brings energy to the court. He’s an effort guy. A hustler. He’s steady on both ends of the court. • Highland Park’s Tyler Gussis. He excels on the baseball field, while he’s a valuable bluecollar player on the basketball court. He doesn’t make a lot of mistakes, while he plays much bigger than his 6-1 frame. He’s more than willing to do the dirty work underneath. • Lake Forest Academy’s Benjamin Canady. He continues to draw raves from the LFA coaching staff. He’s a glue guy for the Caxys (8-4). • Glenbrook North’s Max Knebelkamp. Senior guard is extremely athletic who finds a way to help his team succeed. He’s averaging 8.0 points per game, while he leads GBN in assists and steals. PLAYERS ON THE RISE

• Glenbrook North’s Brian Johnson. A 6-5 guard/ forward, his game is multidimensional. He claimed all-tourney honors in the GBN Thanksgiving Tournament. • Glenbrook South’s Dominick Martinelli. Just a sophomore, the 6-2 forward has a lot of upside. Continuing to play at a high level at the varsity level is not a stretch for him. • Glenbrook South’s Mac Hubbard. This 6-2 junior, who played at Loyola last year, can light it up from the outside. Teammates trust him to take the big shot. • Lake Forest Academy’s Brandon Weston. A 6-4 freshman from Brooklyn, New York, he could be someone special for the Caxys. • Loyola’s Connor Barrett. A true offensive threat, he keeps getting better and better. He was an alltourney pick at the invite in Naples. • New Trier’s Sam Silverstein. The more that you watch this 6-4 junior guard the more you like him. He’s not afraid to take chances on the court.
