Beto popped for a team-best five blocks in a win over host Niles West on Oct. 15. “She’s been a differencemaker for us, an impact player,” Trevians coach Hannah Hsieh says of the Wildcat Juniors (17 Purple) club player. “Her size forces others to hit difficult, weird shots.

THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

NEWS RALLYING Continued from PG 1 were her best friends, and she didn’t have to say a word while baking her specialty, cookie cakes. The more Beto played varsity volleyball in 2014-15, the more her teammates got to know her, the more they wanted to be around her. There was a fun, smart, interesting person underneath all of that figurative armor. They chiseled away at it, hammered at it, helped set Beto free. “My teammates,” she recalls, “pushed me and encouraged me to be myself. They brought out the person I am. I can be weird and wild now, in front of people I know. I’m also positive. One of my roles on the team this year is to stay positive and spread positivity. Volleyball is one of my passions, and what I love about the team is our fight; we’re fighters. We don’t play for ourselves; we play for the person next to

Continued from PG 1 decades, she was responsible for the day-to-day operations of the of the hospital’s clinical, ancillary, support and nursing functions; and was instrumental in helping Lutheran General achieve top national honors— “Magnet” status—from the American Nurses Association in 2005, and again in 2010. When doctors discovered Julie had the disease in June of 2009, they diagnosed it as advanced stage III ovarian cancer. Worse, it had already spread to her lymph nodes. She received a number of different chemotherapy treatments and drugs. “They did just about everything they could do and nothing really took and she just kept going downhill,” said Schaffner. But Julie was a fighter; she had continued to run Lutheran General Hospital from her bedside on chemotherapy days. During one of her regular chemotherapy sessions at the hospitals oncology department, she took time to craft the framework for an organization she hoped would play a key role in growing awareness, identifying risk factors, and funding research to fight ovarian cancer. When she passed away 18 months later on New Year’s Eve, she had already laid the groundwork for the Julie W. Schaffner Ovarian Cancer Fund, while leading Lutheran General to a re-designation of Magnet status. She was 56. Said Schaffner, “She had really

Beto powers through pages, gains knowledge. “Reading a book is like watching a little movie in my mind,” Beto says. Beto still finds time to bake. The happiest man in Hanover Park one day was Charles Beto, Nicole’s grandfather. He received a Nicole Beto carrot cake, creamcheese frosted, on his birthday. A delicious highlight at the Trevians’ Carb Fests on the eves of big volleyball matches is anything baked by Beto, be it a layered cake, a cookie cake or a batch of cupcakes.

Beto, her list of colleges narrowed to Indiana University and the University of Iowa, shakes her head, finding it hard to believe she will soon play on the home court only one more time. “In about 10 months,” she says, “I’ll be on a college campus somewhere.” She finds that hard to fathom, too. Beto smiles. It is not a shy smile. It is not a nervous smile. It is a confident, healthy smile.

“If you know those markers are there or there’s a history of it in your family, we urge you to get a screening.” –Julie W. Schaffner wanted us to carry forward and see if we could do something about it.” Today, that Fund is fully mobilized—and Julie’s energy and fighting spirit lives on through the organization, made up of friends and family members who want to realize her vision: a world where ovarian cancer can be beaten through better awareness and advancements in science. “If you know those markers are there or there’s a history of it in your family, we urge you to get a screening,” said Schaffner. “Because that’s really the best defense to date.” To that end, Schaffner and the supporters of the JWS Ovarian Cancer Fund put on an annual fund raising event called WineHopsScotch!: a night of wine,

beer, and scotch tasting that will be held on Friday, November 6 at the Michigan Shores Club in Wilmette. This year, the wine is being represented by the Inman Family Winery of Sonoma, Calif.; “hops” are supplied by three Chicago-area microbreweries— Atlas Brewing Company, Begyle Brewing Company, and Revolution Brewing Company; and the scotch features products by Johnnie Walker, Lagavulun,

Oban and Talisker. The event also includes gourmet appetizers and desserts, a raffle and silent auction, and two live jazz bands. All of the proceeds from WineHopsScotch! go to the JWS Ovarian Cancer Fund, which recently supplied a grant to Advocate Lutheran General’s Hospital’s Cancer Survivorship Center, and also made grants to support promising local ovarian cancer research projects at Rosalind Franklin University of

Medicine and Science (North Chicago, Ill.) and the University of Illinois at Chicago. Living in the Wilmette community for over 26 years, Schaffner is blown-away by the continued support him and his family receives, while Julie was fighting the disease and after she passed. WineHopsScotch! is their way of paying it forward. “I’m totally amazed and grateful for their support. Unfortunately, Julie is gone, and it’s hard

from that standpoint. But we’re all working together: and hopefully we’re doing some good things with our money and helping other people,” said Schaffner. “That’s kind of what communities are all about, I think. Helping other people.” To learn more or to purchase tickets for WineHopsScotch! please visit jwsfund.org. Tickets can also be purchased on November 6 at Michigan Shores Club at the door.

business: and expanded, and expanded, and expanded again. Growing up, there were not a lot of places to hangout for teenagers. Urso and Bozic changed all of that. In four years, Donati’s grew from three employees (two of which were the founders) and a 900 square feet hole in the wall, to a four-unit local pizzeria chain employing 50 people. While the other pizzerias are more traditional—like Ferentino’s Pizzeria in Lake Forest, the first pizza place Urso ever worked at—the new location in Lake Bluff is entirely different. “You know how that one time you wanted to try jalapeno with ranch, and you’re like, ‘Man, I want anchovies on that too!’” said Urso. “Well this is the place you can do [that].” Donati’s Pizza in Lake Bluff has 42 toppings you can choose from: anchovies and roasted garlic, sautéed onions and pineapple, artichoke hearts and deli meats and edamame and jalapenos. (Artichoke hearts are the favorite.) The concept isn’t new, but Urso believes there’s a very good chance that they are the only fast-fired pizza place serving Chicago deep dish in the country: eight minutes until ready (four minutes for regular thin-crust). Making pizza at home? Urso stresses one virtue over all: Patience. “In small batches its actually really simple: It’s all about proofing your dough,” said Urso. “A lot of people are impatient; you got to let chemistry kind of work itself out. Let that dough get soft and rise.” Donati’s Pizza is located at 203 South Waukegan Rd in Lake Bluff. Deep dish pizza at Donati’s Pizza in Lake Bluff. PHOTOGRAPHY BY JOEL LERNER.

felt “Include me out.” You decided to check into it. Nobody finds it rude anymore if you fiddle with a smartphone while listening to a guy talk, so you punched up Google... The line originated from Hollywood mogul, Samuel Goldwyn. He was a movie-industry version of Yogi Berra, the

greatest inventor of funny phrases like “When you come to a fork in the road, take it,” and “Nobody goes to that restaurant; it’s too crowded!” But back to Goldwyn. Your web search shows he could play on the same ball field as Berra when it came to quirky quips. Some Goldwynisms include:

“Anybody who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.” And “If I dropped dead right now I’d be the happiest man alive.” Stuff like that. Well, while you were Googling Goldwyn and scrolling through his famous quotes from generations back, your friend, unfazed with bits of egg

salad on his face, was going on about future generations, and the robot army that’s literally at our gates. But you weren’t really listening. You included yourself out. What are you doing with such interesting friends? Better question: what are they doing with you?

Re-purposing unused areas of a home into functional rooms provides the homeowner many benefits. The immediate benefit of converted rooms is that they provide enjoyment, relaxation and purpose in what was previously wasted space. Long-term, room conversions add value to a home by providing prospective buyers with the maximum efficiency of a home’s floor plan and square footage, as well as the uniqueness of the converted room. Efficiency kitchens, libraries, observatories, home theatres, greenhouses, wine rooms, spa-sauna combos or secondary suites are all distinctive choices for a room conversion that make a home stand apart from others, while simultaneously benefiting the homeowner by providing convenience and a sense of luxury without the hefty price tag. Before beginning any room conversion, however, there are necessary considerations to make before deciding what licensed contractors will be required in order to ensure the new room’s comfort, safety and long-term maintenance. The first consideration is, what room are you converting, and what will this room need? For example, venting an insulated attic room properly is crucial for comfort, safety and household maintenance. Improperly ventilated, an attic conversion will not simply be uncomfortably hot, but it will also be damaging to the overall structure. Likewise, basement and garage conversions must have adequate light and ventilation, as well as be sealed to protect against dampness and moisture. Once you’ve taken the necessities into account, it’s time to start the fun part—building a one-of-a-kind room into your family’s unique house!

MANY HAPPY RETURNS Loyola’s Isaac takes two kickoffs “to the house” in home win over Mount Carmel BY BILL MCLEAN, SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

J

onah Isaac was running late for his theology class at Loyola Academy this semester. He picked up his pace in a hallway, his football instincts allowing him to pass people, to elude others. Nobody blocked for him. Not a problem. Isaac, a senior wide receiver/kick returner for the Ramblers, still found ways to negotiate his 5-foot-9, 175-pound frame — minus the helmet and the pads and the No. 10 jersey — in a building without end zones. “I had to dodge three people,” Isaac, a native of Roscoe Village in Chicago, recalled last weekend. “I made it, though. I made it to class on time.” Jonah Isaac, minus the school clothes and school supplies, appeared to be in a hurry a couple of times in Loyola Academy’s 49-21 defeat of visiting Mt. Carmel on Oct. 24. He returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. He returned a kickoff 97 yards for another touchdown in the second quarter. Everybody blocked for him. Twice. As he sat on a Ramblers bench after the second TD, his helmet off, he shook hands with coaches and teammates, absorbed countless slaps to his shoulder pads, got jostled, smiled, exhaled, smiled some more. Teammates shot him disbelieving, awestruck looks, the kind of dugout reactions New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy received from his teammates as his homer total in consecutive postseason games reached a cartoonish seven at Wrigley Field earlier this month. “Humble guy, great kid,” Loyola Academy senior kicker Patrick Tata said of Isaac, who also came down with a 44-yard reception against Mt. Carmel’s Caravan in the regular-season finale in Wilmette. “He’s always thanking teammates on the sideline, always congratulating teammates.” Isaac was the most grateful Rambler inside Lane Stadium after his 80-yard kickoff return for a TD in a game against DePaul College Prep last fall. The

Emmett Clifford completed 12of-16 passes for 203 yards and two TDs. Senior wideout Eric Eshoo caught six balls for 97 yards, 30 of them the length of a TD reception in the first quarter. Thomas Smart (four grabs, 52 yards), another senior wideout, snared Clifford’s first pass of the day and turned it into a 25-yard TD. Marwede rushed only four times, but he averaged nearly six yards per carry. Weapons everywhere. And then there’s Laja, the Rambler in the No. 1 jersey. He was No. 2 on the program’s alltime career rushing list before the start of the start of the game on Oct. 24. He left Hoerster Field No. 1, having supplanted current LA receivers coach Pat Naughton (Class of ’96) atop the list when he rushed for an eight-yard TD at 4:12 of the fourth quarter. His career rushing yardage total stands at 2,113, one more postseason still ahead of him. “That was so special, what Dara did today, what he did in front of a great crowd and against a program like Mt. Carmel’s,” Holecek said.

LOOK AT HER NOW Lake Forest’s late-blooming Condon develops into an elite performer BY KEVIN REITERMAN, SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

O

n Day One of her competitive running career, Katie Condon was pretty much greeted with indifference and … a tinge of condescension. She initially was judged as an also-ran. An afterthought. A long shot. “We put her in the one-mile group,” Lake Forest High School head girls cross country coach Steve Clegg said. “When you don’t come out [for a sport] until your sophomore year, it’s pretty clear where you go.” You go … straight to the slow group. The bottom floor. The back of the class. “But it didn’t take us long to say, ‘We’ve got to keep an eye on her,’ ” Clegg said. “She moved up pretty quickly.” And Condon has been going at breakneck speed ever since. She’s turned into a windfall. She’s the unexpected gift. The winning lottery ticket. The Scouts basically have hit the jackpot with Condon. Last fall, as a junior, she earned all-state honors (19th place) and helped LF to a runner-up finish at the Class 2A state cross country meet. A few months later, she qualified to the Class 3A state track in the 1600 meters (5:11.72). And, a few months after that, as a member of the Waukegan Invaders track club, she earned AllAmerica honors in the 1500 meters (4:51.92) at the USATF Junior Olympics. When’s arbitration? When’s free agency? The volleyball player turned long-distance runner keeps turning heads. Bring on the fanfare. “She’s been our rock all season,” said Clegg. “She’s consistently right there at every race.” Condon was right there on Oct. 24 at the Class 3A Lake Forest Regional, when the Scouts claimed a team title with a mere 30 points. She cruised the three-mile layout at the LF West Campus in a personal best time of 17:39 to take fourth overall. “Duels. Invites. You can always count on her having a big performance,” he added.

in the team standings with 67 points. Senior Charlotte Nawor ran the top spot for HP: 8th, 18:30.42. HP’s other scorers were Kaitlyn Twadell (12th, 19:06.04), Marni Pine (13th, 19:08.35), Rachel Powers (15th, 19:09.85) and Robin Israel (19th, 19:25.38). “This race is all about surviving and advancing,” said HP coach Andy Butler. “Three of our runners today were alternates. This is as a deep as we’ve ever been.”

LF girls track coach Nathan Sweet sees the same thing in Condon. “She’s been pretty amazing,” Sweet said. “She developed really, really fast. She’s a hard worker. A workhorse.” Teammate Emma Milburn, who also earned All-America honors in the summer, has been amazed by Condon’s quick rise. “She’s only been doing this since sophomore year, which just shows you how good and how talented she is,” said Milburn, who placed 10th at last year’s state cross country meet. “I started in the fifth grade. It’s taken me forever to get where I am.” Mark Myers, the senior star on the LF boys team who has been a friend and neighbor of Condon since forever (since they were toddlers), admitted that he was a little taken aback, when she came out for cross country. “I had no idea,” said Myers. “All of a sudden, she just showed up for cross country practice. “But,” he added, “she’s been

amazing. She’s got it.” And Condon, a triplet with two brothers (Kyle and Tom), plans to keep it going. She intends to run at the next level, considering Cornell as a destination. Her success at the USATF meet last summer did wonders for her belief system. “That definitely was a confidence booster for me,” said Condon, who is quiet and respectful. “I don’t know how good I can be. But what I did at nationals showed me that I have some talent.” “That big-meet experience has really helped her,” Clegg said. “Every time you face that kind of competition in that kind of environment, each race gets a little less scary.” Running one second behind freshman teammate Lauren Garriques (3rd, 17:38) and eight seconds ahead of sophomore Brett Chody (5th, 17:47), Condon looked like a polished performer at the regional meet. “I’ve gotten better at finishing,”

said Condon, who used a strong kick to beat her PR by 12 seconds. She’s also figured out how to handle the pressure of the big meet. “I try not to think about the races. I don’t want to be stressed by them,” Condon said. “I just go into every race knowing that it’s going to be hard. Every race is going to hurt.” Windy conditions made the regional race a challenge. “One of the things I learned from my club coach [Ken Almond] is that you have to push through the pain,” Condon said. “That [advice] helped me today.” The fastest runner in the race was Stevenson sophomore Isabelle Sparreo (17:05). Libertyville sophomore Melissa Manetsch was the runner-up (17:34). The fastest team in the race was LF, which placed all seven runners in the top 25, including Millburn (7th, 18:21), Courtney Schmidt (11th, 19:02), Kelsey Schmidt (21st, 19:40) and Callahan Schmidt (25th, 20:00). Thus, they head to the Schaumburg Sectional on Oct.

31 (10 a.m.) with plenty of confidence. Meanwhile, Myers was one of the standouts in the regional boys race. He hung with the leaders throughout before winding up fourth in 15:12.22. The Scouts, who advanced to the Schaumburg Sectional on Oct. 31 (11:15 a.m.) with a sixth-place finish with 132 points, also received solid work from Etienne Najman (11th, 15:49.27) and Grant Levin (25th, 16:14.87). Highland Park Led by senior Brett Davidson (3rd, 15:02.19) and freshman Jose Reyes (8th, 15:36.47), Highland Park raced to a first-place finish (56 points) at the Class 3A LF Regional on Oct. 24. Stevenson was second with 70 points. Charlie Skurie (14th, 15:52.46), Jonathan Rosenfeld (15th, 15:53.72), Nate Amster (16th, 15:59.82), Alec Glazier (17th, 16:02.07) and Fitz Laurie (27th, 16:20.42) also ran well for the Giants. In the girls race, HP placed third

New Trier New Trier senior Josh Derrick turned it up a notch at the Niles West Regional on Oct. 24. He ran a 15:19.71 to win the individual title, 13 seconds better than Niles North standout Martin Barr. The Trevians claimed the title with 34 points. The other runners instrumental in the win were Warren Blood (3rd, 15:32.98), Jack Litowitz (5th, 15:38.85), Patrick Norrick (12th, 16:11), Alex Burck (13th, 16:17), Will Taylor (16th, 16:24) and Ted Oh (22nd, 16:33). In the girls race, junior Caroline Fix of New Trier claimed the individual title at Niles West.The Trevians won the race with 27 points. New Trier also received strong performances from Kelli Schmidt (5th, 18:24.21), Caroline Trukenbrod (6th, 18:27.14), Grace Fagan (7th, 18:29.23), Rachel Weix (8th, 18:31.26), Molly Schmidt (9th, 18:32.71) and Oona Jung-Beeman (10th, 18:35.19). Loyola Kathryn House was one of the standouts in the regional girls race at Niles West. She finished third in 18:20.61 and helped the Ramblers to a third-place team finish (84 points). Margot Dooley (13th, 18:43.79), Payton Hoag (17th, 19:01.14), Allie Zahn (22nd, 19:18.59), Ellie Slattery (29th, 20:01.77), Annie Foley (30th, 20:05) and Caroline McKinley (31st, 20:16) were LA’s other finishers.

‘Short-handed’ Trevians stand tall, take third place at state tennis tournament BY BILL MCLEAN, SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

N

ew Trier girls tennis coach Jerry Morse-Karzen and his Trevians had time to kill on the third day of the state tournament. A rain delay, on the morning of Oct. 24, forced them to scramble for other things to do. They visited Woodfield Mall, a few lengthy lobs from a tourney site in Rolling Meadows. Morse-Karzen ate fried rice, a court boss hitting the food court. Senior doubles player Catherine MacKinnon did some homework at the mall. Her partner, freshman Michelle Capone, shopped. “I bought sweaters,” Capone said. Capone/MacKinnon and the rest of NT’s state team — senior singles player Cammy Frei and the doubles team of senior Tess Lubin and junior Michelle Buyer — then hit the courts and warmed the

cockles of Morse-Karzen’s heart. The Trevians tallied an impressive 27 points to finish third behind Stevenson (30) and Hinsdale Central (50). HC and Stevenson had qualified the maximum four state entries. NT sent three. “Outstanding,” Morse-Karzen said of his “short-handed” contingent. “I was very pleased. To take third, with our number of qualifiers … that’s quite an achievement. They all played well.” Capone/MacKinnon, a 5-8 seed, finished sixth after bowing 6-2, 6-7 (2), 7-5 to reigning state champions Katherine Harvey/Vinaya Rao of Stevenson in a quarterfinal on Oct. 23. They went 2-1 from there, rallying from a 6-2 deficit to post a 9-7 victory over an Edwardsville pair in the their first back-draw match. (The weather delay reduced

some consolation matches to pro sets on the final day.) “It’s nice when your partner is 5-foot-10, with a big wingspan, and she plays well at the net,” MacKinnon, 5-foot-2 and a threetime state qualifier in doubles, said of Capone, a fearless, aggressive poacher. Frei won six of eight matches and reached the consolation semifinals. She quickly dismissed Hinsdale Central’s Sophia Haleas 6-1, 6-0 in her first back-draw match and then topped Sycamore High School’s Angelina Ye and Barrington’s Michelle Linden. “Cammy had some very good wins,” Morse-Karzen said of his second-year captain. “She found a nice rhythm, made fewer mistakes than her opponents did. What a great way to end her career. Her wins in the back draw … we needed

those, with Lyons (fourth place, 25 points, two behind NT’s total) right there with us, going for third place.” Lubin/Buyer made it to the fourth round of the main draw and netted a pair valuable doubles victories in the back draw. “Maybe,” Morse-Karzen surmised, “going to the mall loosened the team up.” NT’s third-place state finish was its third in four years and fifth topthree (trophy worthy) effort in six years. Highland Park Three Giants entries combined for nine wins at the state tournament. Three of the school’s qualifiers — singles player Caitlin Goldberg and the doubles team of Monique Brual/Lily Tiemeyer — were eighth-graders at this time last year.

Goldberg won a match in the main draw and two more in the back draw. Brual/Tiemeyer went 3-2, with two of their victories coming in the championship draw. HP’s other doubles entrant, seniors Jordan Abt/Phoebe Sacks, also won three of five matches. Highland Park finished 12th (14 points) in the team standings. Loyola Academy Sophomore Maggie Hines teamed up with junior and threetime state qualifier Caroline Witkowski to reach the quarterfinal round of doubles at the state tournament. Hines/Witkowski, a 5-8 seed, lost 6-4, 6-1 to top-seeded Colette O’Regan/Catherine O’Regan of Glenbrook North in a quarterfinal on Oct. 23. The pair of Ramblers then split two matches in the back draw, their last coming

in a consolation-semifinal loss to 3-4 seed Stefana Vasic/Lahari Yelamanchili of Lyons Township. Witkowski advanced to state in doubles in each of her first two seasons. Her partner in 2013 and in ’14: older sister Abby Witkowski (LA, ’15). Lake Forest High School The doubles team of senior Brynn Carlson and sophomore Julianna Roman, seeded 17-32, went 4-2 at the state tournament. The Scouts lost to 5-8 seed and eventual state champions Sandra Keta/Stephanie Dolehide of Hinsdale Central in the third round and defeated pairs from Prairie Ridge and Glenbrook South in the back draw. Carlson, with classmate Zoe Park, reached the Round of 16 in doubles at last year’s state meet.

DÉJÀ VOLLEYBALL — ALL OVER AGAIN Fifteen years later, Giants relying on another setter named Gordon BY BILL MCLEAN, SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

A

llyson Gordon is born, the younger sister of Amy Gordon. Parents Rich and Julie Gordon transport their newborn home from a hospital, some 15 years ago. Little Allyson’s first outing from home is to one of Amy’s volleyball matches at Highland Park High School. Amy is a freshman setter on the Giants’ varsity team. Allyson hears a volleyball bounce for the first time. It is October 17, 2015. Highland Park High School’s volleyball team is competing at a tournament at Elgin High School. Allyson is 15 years old now, a 5-foot-7 freshman setter on the Giants’ varsity team. There, in the stands, is a former HPHS setter, a married woman, a 5-foot-9 Nike executive (Director of Strategy) visiting from Portland, Oregon. She is 30 years old now. It is Amy Gordon Franzen’s turn to sit and watch and hear a volleyball bounce. “She has improved so much,” Amy, a three-time all-Central Suburban League North volleyball player and 2004 HPHS graduate, says of her little sis. “She plays with confidence, a quiet temperament. She’s a leader on the floor, a stabilizer when the team is doing well and somebody who picks a team up when it’s not doing well. A setter has to be that kind of teammate. “Allyson,” Amy adds, “has seen volleyball from all angles.” Their father, Rich, still plays competitive volleyball at a national level. Their brother, 25-year-old Daniel, played volleyball in high school. Rich, Julie, Amy, Daniel and Allyson vacation for two weeks each year in Aruba. There’s sand in Aruba. Where there’s sand, there’s also an opportunity to play volleyball. The Gordons play volleyball. It’s their sport, their favorite pastime, their escape. “Huge volleyball family,” Giants volleyball coach Beth

Gordon rarely changes her expression in a match. It’s a serious look, an I’m here to take care of business look. It also has a calming quality. Her teammates must notice it and feel their heart rates plummet, immediately, in a … heartbeat. The good setters don’t run on a court; they shuffle quickly and efficiently. Gordon’s shuffles are quiet, fleet movements, glides. She had her footprints and fingerprints all over Highland Park’s 25-19, 25-13 defeat of Deerfield High School on Oct. 19, finishing with 14 assists, five digs, four aces and 16 points on serve. Busy, busy. Effective, effective. Productive, productive. Big sis was still in town. Big sis watched little sis help the Giants win their 11th match of the fall and improve to 5-4 in the CSL North. The setting was Highland Park High School’s main gym. It was 2000 all over again, in 2015. Déjà volleyball. Mom and Dad Gordon sat with Amy this time.

Peterson says of the Gordons. Peterson, in her 14th season at HPHS, coached Amy for a couple of seasons when Allyson weighed slightly more than a few volleyballs. The coach remembers a level-headed, very respectful leader, on and off the court, a Giant who never complained, a Giant who did what she was supposed to do and instilled confidence in her teammates. Allyson Gordon started to truly appreciate Amy, the volleyball player, when Amy set up Big Red college hitters at Cornell. “She was a role model for me,” Allyson, an AAU All-American

club player (14 Purple, Wildcat Juniors), says. “She taught me a lot. High school volleyball, for me, is a new thing, a big deal. I’m loving it; I really am. It’s a lot of fun, and it takes commitment. As a setter, I get to hit every second ball … a lot of responsibility. It’s exciting, having that kind of responsibility.” Allyson Gordon dished 13 assists, smacked three aces and finished with seven digs in 16thseeded Highland Park’s 25-21, 25-22 defeat of No. 17 Mundelein High School in a Class 4A Lake Zurich Regional opener on Oct. 26. The win advanced

the Giants to a scheduled date (Oct. 27) with the top-seeded Wildcats of Libertyville High School. “Allyson,” Peterson says, “is mature for her age. She keeps her emotions in check. She responds well to coaching. She’s not a typical freshman, and she has great hands, faith in her hitters — qualities you want from a setter.” Emma Young, a junior setter, transferred to Highland Park from Virginia last summer. Allyson Gordon showed varsityworthy abilities last summer. Two fresh faces. Two setters.

Two highly capable setters. Hello, 6-2 scheme. “I remember [senior outside hitter/middle blocker] Mattie Giese coming up to me, all excited, in the summer [after a summer league match], and telling me, ‘OK, we’re going to be fine at the setter position,’ ” Peterson recalls. “Allyson has earned her teammates’ respect, upperclassmen included. What I appreciate about her is her focus when she’s in a gym. She’s not interested in anything nonvolleyball related in a gym. When she’s in a gym, she’s there for volleyball, only volleyball.”

Notable: Giants sophomore outside hitter Miranda Mottlowitz struck for a team-high eight kills in Highland Park’s 25-21, 25-22 defeat of Mundelein in a Class 4A playoff opener at Lake Zurich High School on Oct. 26. Senior outside hitter Grace Rhoades pounded seven kills, junior teammate Jocelyn Spizman five. Junior setter Emma Young provided seven assists and contributed seven digs and a pair of aces. HP senior libero/defensive specialist Carly Nanberg bumped a team-high 12 digs. … The Gordon sisters, Allyson and Amy, have more than volleyball and a set of parents in common. Allyson, a Highland Park freshman setter, has a dog, Leo. It’s a French Pointer. Amy (HPHS, ’04), a former Giants setter living in Portland, Oregon, with her husband, William, has a dog, GarÇon. It’s a French Pointer. Wuff, wuff.

ot much was on the line for Highland Park High School’s football team in its season finale at Niles North. The Giants weren’t in playoff contention. But that didn’t seem to matter to Cristian Volpentesta. Or, to D.J. Penick Jr. Or, to Gabe Guzman. All three deserved game balls as they turned in state-of-theart performances in a 42-29 loss to highly motivated Vikings on Oct. 23. The Vikings improved to 5-4 to become playoff eligible. The Giants finished the season 3-6. Volpentesta, who has received scholarship offers from Winona State and Valparaiso, had an unbelievable game. On the offensive side, the senior caught four passes for 115 yards, including two touchdowns (31 and 29 yards). On the defensive side, Volpentesta was in on 11 tackles, including four for losses. He also forced a fumble. “He’s a warrior,” said HP head coach Joe Horeni, who wrapped up his first season at the helm. “An unbelievable player.” One of Volpentesta’s unforgettable plays came with 6:16 left in the first half, when the Giants pulled off a well-designed gimmick play to score their first TD of the game. Volpentesta was on the receiving end of a double pass that went for 31 yards after Penick took the snap and tossed it back to junior quarterback David Adelstein. “That was fun,” said Horeni. “One of those plays you dream up on Sundays.” Volpentesta’s second catch of

the night — a 32-yarder from Penick — was highlight reel material. He went up high for the catch, and he had to wrestle it away from Niles North standout Barrington Wade as he came down. One play later, senior Olivier Alexandre came off the bench, took a handoff from Penick and raced into the end zone from 14 yards out to cut Niles North’s lead to 28-14 with 45 seconds left in the first half. “Olivier is one of the fastest guys on the team,” said Horeni. “We’ve been trying to find him a spot in a crowded backfield. It was great to see him score. He’s a great teammate.” Volpentesta’s other TD catch came on the opening series of the second half, when he hauled in a 29-yard pass from backup QB Noah Henson. Meanwhile, Penick was just being … Penick. The junior running back amassed 248 rushing yards, including a 72-yarder. He finished the season with 1,595 yards. Penick also displayed his versatility in this game. He lined up at quarterback (think Wildcat Formation), when Adelstein was forced to leave the game with an ankle injury. Like Volpentesta, Penick doesn’t come off the field much. He ended up with 11 tackles against the Vikings. “A great offensive player. A great defensive player,” said Horeni. The same can be said of Gabriel. The two-way lineman helped to open up the holes for Penick, while he also finished the game with five tackles and a fumble recovery.

People throw around the saying “down to earth.” McDermott is chilling at the core. Which is why, perhaps, McDermott was searching for a model that wasn’t really a model for her brand, 84Rockwell. ( Just as she’s a fashion designer that isn’t really a fashion designer, at least not in the traditional sense. More on that later.) The model search had been going well, she told me. But McDermott was in a state of flux; a state she was taking awfully well.

exciting. It’s something different for me; it’s making my mind work in a totally different way again, and, honestly, I’m pleasantly surprised with how supportive people are.” 84Rockwell had been percolating in her mind for a while before serendipity stepped in. McDermott’s favorite belt bag,

the Gucci Original GG made famous by Carrie Bradshaw on Sex in the City, broke. “So I took it apart,” she said, or the sartorial version of reverse engineering. McDermott had had little experience with designing clothes or handbags. She wasn’t an ambitious seamstress like

Coco Chanel, or a fastclimbing “Devil Wears Prada” assistant like Donna Karan. Growing up on the south side of Chicago, McDermott was, by her own admission, a tomboy. She grew up on 84th and Rockwell (hence the name) in a bluecollar neighborhood and “played a ton of sports.” “Fashion wasn’t a really huge part of my life,” added McDermott, who wore a belt bag (read: fanny pack) to softball practice. Graduating the University of Illinois with a degree in speech communications, McDermott went to work as a production assistant at CNBC. But her career—and where she learned a deeper appreciation for fashion—came when she started working at The Oprah Winfrey Show. On set, McDermott was surrounded “by beautiful things and beautiful people.” She cut her teeth working on massive productions. And what of Oprah? “She took such good care of us,” said McDermott. “I mean, everything: from the little things, to your perks, to the food—we had chefs there, we had a spa there. Because you lived there.” Before the show ended for good, McDermott had already left to start a family. But she held onto her own sense of style, which very much included belt bags. When her favorite Gucci bag broke, she sensed the time was ripe to try her hand at

making her own bags. “I always want it to feel like its natural and its organic and its not like I’m trying too hard to do something, or trying to be something that I’m not,” explained McDermott. At the table she had with her a black, perforated ‘Daley’ Xrossover (Daley is the name of her daughter and both bags are named after her kids). Every bag is made locally, assembled in Ravenswood. (And can be found all across the North Shore: from ENAZ in Highland Park and Northfield, to Runway in Deerfield, to KOVET Boutique and Juniper Boutique in Northbrook.) As of right now, McDermott doesn’t have any plans to pursue totes or clutches or any other bags. She finds inspiration from lesser known brands and designers: Ellery, Anine Bing, Clare V. (“She’s killing it”) but doesn’t want to get too ahead of herself. This November, McDermott and Korean-American visual artist InJung Oh, will be creating a limited edition of a new 84Rockwell leather belt bag design featuring Injung’s celebrated artwork. Both artist and designer and looking to price the bag at around $500, with proceeds of the sale going to the Thousand Wish Project, which creates interactive visual workshops in Chicago. “I’m not trying to save the world or find the cure for cancer,” said McDermott, “but I am doing belt bags: and doing them smart, and doing them right, and doing a better price point. And having them manufactured in the United States is huge.” She added, smiling, “but it’s a bag. At the end of the day, it’s just a bag.”
