Golf greats to start descending on North Shore


hough North Shore residents have enjoyed playing golf on sparkling courses for more than a century, PGA Tour pros have been generally absent, especially in the modern era. The Skokie Country Club in Glencoe played host to the U.S. Open, to be sure, but that was back during the Harding Administration. In Illinois, golf’s biggest names rarely appear north of Medinah. That is set to change this summer. In September, the BMW Championship will visit Conway Farms Golf Club. Before that, the Encompass Championship – a Champions Tour event featuring the likes of Ben Crenshaw, Tom Kite, Hal Sutton and other notables — will take place at North Shore Country Club June 21-23. Mike Galeski of Lake Forest is running this first-time event. It’s hard to find someone more immersed in the golf business — the former Nabisco Dinah Shore tournament director and Callaway executive grew up in a golf shop run by his father in Watertown, Conn. Read his story in Sunday Breakfast. At long last, it seems, the housing market is becoming friendly to sellers nationwide and

on the North Shore. Around here, one reason is staging — bringing furnishings into a home to make it look more attractive for potential buyers (as seen in our cover photo of 10 Maple Hill in Glencoe). Bill McLean examines this increasingly popular idea and more in his piece inside. As the school years ends, we feature two organizations important to graduates. College Bound Opportunities helps high school seniors in need not only get into college, but it continues to guide them while there. Campus2Career buoys college graduates who are entering the real-world job market. “For people who don’t know how to look for a job — and why would they? — these are revelations,” says Frank Schroeder of the suggestions Campus2Career offers.

All the home’s a stage Housing sales taking off, thanks in part to boost from staging


■ by bill mclean “A Nightmare on Elm Street” hit theaters in 1984, horrifying millions of moviegoers. The burned, disfigured character in the flick, Freddy Krueger, didn’t exactly kick off a fashion craze by sporting a red-and-dark-green striped sweater and brown fedora. Senior real estate broker consultant Susan Maman of @properties experienced a local version of “A Nightmare on Elm Street” — while wide awake. It involved a house in Winnetka last year. On Elm Street. “It was a complete disaster on the inside,” Maman recalled. But she didn’t fear the challenge of selling the house. Her good friend, interior designer Kim Flashner, has an eye for transforming, enhancing, de-cluttering or rearranging any kind of room. She stages rooms for home sellers and prospective buyers. Their partnership’s slogan is, “From undesirable … to unforgettable.” Flashner worked her magic, turning that nightmare into something closer to a dream for interested eyes. Maman’s extensive marketing and sales background also helped. The Elm Street listing sold. Flashner has staged four homes for Maman, and all four didn’t sit on the market for long. “The return on investing in staging is tremendous for sellers,” Flashner said. “Staged homes sell quicker and at or near the asking price, when you can create an appealing environment in a room by adding accent pieces. People often have a difficult time imagining what a vacant room would look like without furnishings in it. “We find the right pieces for the rooms, sometimes mixing the expensive with the inexpensive. There are ways to make inexpensive furniture look expensive.” The housing market is taking off again. Coldwell Banker broker Anne West pointed on her site that North Shore home sales in April increased 53 percent over the same month last year; median prices were up 10 percent; and market time was down 33 percent. Eve Bremen, branch manager of Coldwell Banker in Winnetka, said the number of Winnetka homes on the market last month was 219, compared to 293 in April 2011. Staging isn’t the only reason. Interest rates are low, with plenty of formerly jittery Eve Bremen


buyers eager for new digs before rates assuredly rise. And as Bremen says, “Consumers are more confident. Buyers don’t have as many choices, and many of them are acting quickly.” Still, staging has been a factor, receiving rave, Obie Award-worthy reviews — from sellers and realtors. “Staging is vital,” said Jean Wright of Jean Wright Real Estate in Winnetka. “A good staging job could make all the difference in the world, inside and outside a home that’s for sale. Who’s going to be interested in seeing a home where the bushes are blocking the view of the front door? And not all furniture is attractive, no matter what the seller thinks. “There’s a way to be tactful before recommending the staging of a room,” she added. “You say, ‘I like your furniture, too, but remember, you want the interested buyer to remember the house, not your things.’ ” Broker associate Dede Banks of Koenig & Strey in Lake Forest took a course in staging in 2006, some two years before the housing Dede Banks market went from wobbly to inert. One of her assignments was to invigorate a living room. She applied red-brick paint to a wall surrounding a fireplace. A new focal point in the room appeared, just like that. “The fireplace,” Banks said, “had more of an impact on the room because of the color of the paint.” Jean Anderson is vice president of sales at Prudential Rubloff Properties in Lake Forest. Home staging, she said, was first performed regularly up and down the West and East coasts before it was embraced in our country’s heartland as an effective marketing and decorating technique in the real estate industry. “The Midwest … it’s usually Jean Anderson last to pick up on things, isn’t it?” Anderson said. “Staging a room can be as simple as moving things around or putting things away. It also can be more involved, like changing the wallpaper or painting walls a neutral color.” Broker associate Merle Styer of Coldwell Banker in Highland Park has seen work done by Flashner, Maman’s partner in subliming homes. There’s a ‘wow’ factor — and

something less obvious. “Kim makes a room look like it has not been staged,” Styer said. “That’s hard to do; that’s also what sellers and realtors want. I remember walking into a house and noticing that it looked too staged. Everything in a room had rental furniture, and it did nothing to enhance it.” A home stager serves as a valuable third voice to voice Susan Maman and stager No. 1 (home seller) and voice Kim Flashner No. 2 (realtor). Say the first two voices offer different opinions about how a room should look for potential buyers. Voice No. 3 enters the picture (and room) and breaks the tie. “Kim can come into a room, assess the situation, make great recommendations,” said Maman, whose listings range from $300,000 to high-end luxury homes. “It’s wonderful to see her at work; her eye for interior design is beyond great. “I’m telling you, if you do the right amount of staging in the right places, you’re going to get a huge return.”

“Who’s going to be interested in seeing a home where the bushes are blocking the view of the front door? And not all furniture is attractive, no matter what the seller thinks.” | Jean Wright Staging wasn’t always known as “staging.” Folks referred to it as “de-cluttering” or “reorganizing.” It’s going to stick around for a while; staging won’t see curtains anytime soon. “There’s nothing like a house that’s streamlined, clean, appealing and inviting,” Bremen said. “Staging certainly helps a house attain that look.” But Banks, the accredited staging professional, is well aware that the price tag of a home often trumps the transformation of a room here, a room there. “Value pricing may overcome poor staging, but staging will never overcome an unrealistic price,” she noted. ■

School unites disparate musicians ■ by joanna brown Carlos Bendfeldt is a man with a mission: to grow the community of musicians in Glencoe. And he’s off to a good start. He’s bringing together as many students of the Glencoe School of Music as possible on Wednesday nights and encouraging them to bring their musician friends. Band Night at the school Bendfeldt opened in December has musicians of all ages and abilities playing together. “They bring friends, they make friends,” said Bendfeldt, a Julliard graduate who teaches guitar at the music school he also owns. “We try to make it a friendly place for students to get off the couch and come over. Whether it’s rock or a string quartet, they’re playing together.” Among them is Winnetka’s Robin Doerge, who takes guitar lessons from Bendfeldt. So do her two daughters, ages 11 and 16. And though Doerge has only been playing for a year, she said the Band Night atmosphere is far from intimidating. “It’s good to play with people who are better than you are,” said Doerge, who jams most often with one other beginner and a veteran musician. They come from all different daytime activities -– from parenting to practicing law -- to play together. “We laugh a lot. The adult time is nice. And it makes us better players because we get a fuller experience of playing an instrument (with accompaniment).” What Doerge was not prepared for was her turn at the microphone, as each musician must also be prepared to sing. Doerge is practicing Eric Clapton’s hit, “Wonderful Tonight.” “What was cool was when my 11-yearold said, ‘Mom, you’re not that bad,’” said Doerge, who started taking lessons as a way to hold her daughter’s place at the school while she was at summer camp. When her daughter returned from camp, Doerge scheduled separate lessons for each of them. “I found that I really enjoyed it,” recalled Doerge. “This was not on my bucket list. But being adventurous kind of is.”

Adventurous, too, is Glencoe School of Music founder Bendfeldt. He spent the first decade of his career performing in North America and Central America before he accepted a job teaching at Glencoe’s North Shore School for the Arts. When the owner decided to shutter the school, Bendfeldt convinced much of the music staff to follow him to his new school, offering independent lessons, recitals and workshops across the street. “I love to teach, and I knew the families

“This was not on my bucket list. But being adventurous kind of is.” | Robin Doerge up here and they encouraged me to continue -– with the blessing of the previous owner,” Bendfeldt said. “I took the empty shell of a building and threw myself into it and said, ‘This has to work.’ We started with 45 students, and now we’re up to about 70,” said Bendfeldt, who’s hiring more staff these days. All have advanced degrees in their field. Success, Bendfeldt admitted, will be when his students pursue careers in music. However, the Wednesday night bands offer a measure of progress. “He’s so patient,” Doerge said of her instructor. “He teaches everyone the way they want to learn. He may start with the Beatles, but you can play him most any song on your phone or iPod and within seconds he’s got it written out.” She encouraged other adults to be adventurous, too, and exercise their inner musicians. “Don’t let your reservations get in the way,” Dorge said. “The hardest thing for most adults is the time it takes, but it’s so worth it.” ■

‘I’m going to college’ Low-income students enjoy crucial help from North Shore non-profit ■ by joanna brown Given her 40-year career in Lake Forest and Lake Buff schools, Kathy O’Hara knows about a lot of scholarship programs that offer financial aid toward college enrollment. She knows of only one, however, that pairs financial aid with long-term mentoring to ensure that high-achieving students finish college. Working through Riverwoods-based College Bound Opportunities (CBO), students from Lake Forest, Highland Park and Deerfield high schools are paired with volunteer mentors who make six-year commitments to helping students succeed in college. Mentors help their students navigate the college application process, avenues to financial aid, their transition to college and most anything else that crops up on their path toward graduation. CBO also provides financial aid on top of the grants, loans and scholarships students pursue with the mentors. O’Hara, now the student service and community coordinator at Lake Forest School District 115, knows it works. She was recently surprised by a hug from a CBO scholar while shopping in town. “Ms. O’Hara, Ms. O’Hara, I improved my score!” O’Hara recalled about hearing the news of the student’s second attempt at the PSAT practice test for college admissions following classes organized by CBO. “The students learn how to interview, take the college tests, and they go to a big college fair with their resumes to meet with the colleges. I see wrap-around support.” CBO was founded in 2006, when residents committed to working with four low-income but high-achieving juniors from Township High School District 113. Armed with information about the number of students who qualify for free and reduced lunch in 10 feeder communities, CBO added Lake Forest High School in 2010. Low-income students accounted for 8.6 percent of District 113 enrollment in 2012, up from 5.3 percent in 2008; in LFHS District 115, the number grew to 4.6 percent in 2012, up from zero in 2008, according to the Illinois State Report Card. “All those kids, people don’t realize they’re there, and

the numbers are growing,” said CBO executive director Susan Bell. Students apply to CBO their junior year of high school with proof of academic achievement and their family’s financial status; all applicants are also interviewed. Volunteer mentors endure a similar screening process, including a background check and are paired with students based on shared interests. Mentors commit to seeing their students through to their college graduation. CBO’s growth since 2006 has been significant. It accepted 30 applicants in 2012 and celebrated seven college graduations. Current students are enrolled at almost 40 colleges nationwide, including Loyola University, Stanford University and Vanderbilt University. Lake Forest resident Cathe Lewis is mentoring two students right now and speaks of them with a parent’s pride. “This is one of the most rewarding jobs I’ve ever had,” said Lewis, who worked for 30 years in finance and also raised a family. “All the pushing melts away when they get into school and realize, ‘I’m going to college.’ That’s a pretty powerful moment. No amount of money can equate to that.” Her first student, a young woman from Highwood, attends Augustana College; that was the first campus they visited on their college tour a few years ago. “But it’s not just about getting in. The students still need to see what their financial aid packages look like, so we had to find something good about every college we visited,” Lewis said. She is also working with a senior at Deerfield High School who is still trying to decide between two colleges –- a luxury enjoyed by many CBO scholars -- and she’s mentoring other CBO volunteers who will take on students in the coming years. She encourages them all to get to know the students’ parents and siblings and to be sensitive to cultural differences that affect the students’ choices. “As mentors, we’re not here to live their lives or raise their kids. We’re here to guide them through the college process and be there when they need us,” Lewis said. “You are giving the gift of education to another human being. You and I both know that no matter what happens, no one can take that away from you.” ■

Frank Schroeder

■ by joanna brown Graduating from college this month or next is not the final hurdle for students on the North Shore. Career counselor Frank Schroeder says the transition from college to the workforce often vexes young people, who are unsure of a place to start. Since 2009, he and other counselors at Chicagobased Campus2Career Transition Services have helped recent college grads and young professionals on the North Shore and elsewhere set goals, identify strengths and find jobs that satisfy both. “It’s nothing new we’re doing here, but for people who don’t know how to look for a job — and why would they? — these are revelations,” said Schroeder, who started his business after helping a friend’s daughter through her transition into the workforce. “Good values win the day,” he advised. “These things become cliché because they are true.” Schroeder encouraged job-seekers in their early 20s to be prepared for any interview they seek. “Do your homework. Research the industry, the company, the market,” he said. “On the day of the interview, go to the investor relations section of their website for the latest news. It’s nice to be in an interview and able to say, ‘Oh, I just read you’re acquiring ABC Company.’” The best way to secure those interviews, though, is with what Schroeder called an achievementbased résumé that highlights what value the applicant has added to his or her experiences. A common mistake is to prepare a résumé based on pure chronology. “Most of the young people have done neat things; they just discount them,” Schroeder explained. “As an employer, I need to see that you’ll add value to my organization.” Job seekers can’t rest when the interview is done, Schroeder added. Rather, his clients all follow-up with a thank you note to the interviewer. “Employers don’t make hiring decisions after a 20-minute interview; hand-written thank you notes differentiate you. People who go the extra mile find it pays off,” he said. Like Schroeder himself, decision makers tend to be older, and they appreciate receiving a pen-andink note over an email or text message. “I love getting those from clients. We keep them around here,” he noted. Find more information at ■

Park on Lake Michigan set for major renovation ■ by joanna brown Since she moved to Lake Forest in 1976, Prue Beidler has enjoyed Forest Park, the seven-acre space at the top of the bluff over Lake Michigan. Today, she rides her bike through the oldest park in town (and one of the oldest on the North Shore) with her husband and takes her grandchildren to examine the vistas off of Lake Road. And to be sure that the grandchildren enjoy that view, she’s taken on a significant role in the $4 million Forest Park Project as fundraising chair. “As you get involved and get to know new people, it’s an opportunity to do something together that belongs to the whole community,” she said. “It’s been fascinating.” Though the fundraising cycle is just getting underway, plans to rehabilitate Forest Park began in 2008. The Lake Forest Garden Club and city officials met to discuss a beautification project to mark the club’s 150th anniversary, and a few years later the City Council accepted the club’s gift of a master plan for park renovations. The City Council also established a not-for-profit Forest Park Project Board at that time. It included some members of the Garden Club but also residents with professional expertise in landscaping, engineering and fundraising. “We’re blessed in our community to have generous, giving people who care deeply for the community,” said City Manager Bob Kiely. “I’ve long said that when residents believe in something they will give their time, money and energy to seeing it through.” The park proved to be one of those things. The area a mile east of downtown was set aside by city planner Almerin Hotchkiss in 1857 and appears in his 1873 master plan for the city. The ring road was added by landscape architect O.C. Simonds in 1896 to accommodate horse-drawn carriages and to increase public use of the park. Today, the park welcomes runners and cyclists, as well as those looking for a place for meditation. Simonds’s ring road is an important way that visitors with limited mobility can access lake vistas. The goals of the renovation were: rehabilitate the infrastructure, including the sewers, and the ecosystem that naturally filters water before it re-enters Lake Michigan; improve the vistas, parking and pedestrian access; preserve the open space and historic features of the park; and create a maintenance endowment and sustainable practices to care for the park long after the work is complete. After some initial debate, the ring road will be retained in the renovation. Other features added to the park will be overlook areas, open space, a woodland path, picnic area, and a parking lot and drop off point for buses. “Never have so many people had so much to say about a project in my 25 years here,” said Cliff Miller, a landscape architect who

also serves on the Forest Park Project Board. “This project has involved dozens of residents with knowledge of the project, the master plan was re-assessed by the community and refined by the architect based on their feedback, and then approved by the City Council. And all the challenges that came up brought us to a better park and a better solution.”

“It’s primarily intended to be a place of contemplation, particularly as we open the views to the lake, and we want to keep it as clean and pure as we can.” | Prue Beidler With groundbreaking slated for August, it’s time for Beidler and her team of fundraisers to get to work. The City of Lake Forest will invest $850,000 for infrastructure improvements like the sewer rehab, but the other $3.15 will come from residents and corporate partners over the next five years. “There’s a city tradition of leveraging pubic funds with private funds and donations, and we knew with this project that our portion was small compared to the scope of the overall project,” Kiely said of the city’s commitment. “We wanted to develop our relationship with the Garden Club because we truly believe that when all is said and done, we will look back and see that this was a very important undertaking for the city and something we’re all very proud of.” Beidler said residents will receive a request for donations in their mailboxes soon, and local business owners can expect a call in the coming months. Without naming park features as was done in Chicago’s Millennium Park, Beidler said donors will be discretely recognized in Forest Park. “We want this to be something where everybody knows about it and everybody feels welcome,” said Beidler, who also cochaired the Market Square 2000 renovation project, which similarly mingled public and private funds to renovate a public space. “But it’s primarily intended to be a place of contemplation, particularly as we open the views to the lake, and we want to keep it as clean and pure as we can. “It’s an extraordinary plan, and I’m utterly confident that we’ll be able to see it through.” More information is available at ■

Elm Place Middle School students in Highland Park appear on Skype to talk with students in Jordan.

■ by angelika labno Seven months ago, students from Elm Place Middle School in Highland Park and Shobak, Jordan began Skyping as part of a problem-solving project. They drew pictures, read books, sang national anthems and put on performances for one another. None of them could have imagined that they would spend one recent Saturday afternoon together at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, dissecting cow eyeballs side by side. “At first we were like, ‘They popped out of the Skype screen!’’ said Elm Place seventh-grader Maya Garfinkel on meeting for the first time. “Skype can only do so much. When you don’t have a format, seeing a friend face to face, I don’t think many of us realized how different that would be.” The story starts with Jordanian Problem Solving leader Emily Scott, also an alumna of Elm Place. Her involvement in teacher Susie Greenwald’s after-school program, Future Problem Solving, inspired her to such lengths that she joined the Peace Corps in 2011. She began teaching English at an all-girls school in Shobak, where she held a “Brain Camp” in the summer of 2012. Jordanian students go little beyond rote memorization when learning, so Scott aimed to introduce critical thinking. The kids enjoyed it so much that she went beyond the camp and started her own problem-solving team based off of Greenwald’s example. Scott contacted Greenwald to join the groups as one international problem-solving team, named Operation: TEFKIIR (which means “thinking” in Arabic), made up of Jordanian and Elm Place students. The team had three goals: to promote reading, critical thinking skills and cultural exchange. American books were translated to Arabic for the girls to read, and seven Nooks were purchased through fundraising on both sides. The team won first place at the Illinois Community Problem Solving Competition, which propelled them to the international competition in Bloomington, Ind., this weekend. A cold call to the Jordanian company Rubicon Group Holding resulted in an allexpenses paid trip to America for the five students (all girls), Scott and two chaperones. Arriving at the end of May, they are spending a couple weeks touring and preparing for the international competition. “It was a huge undertaking, and I can’t believe how its all come together,” said Scott, who is the first Peace Corps member from Jordan to travel out of the country

with a group. “We know how to talk to each other and work with each other, and that’s much better than before,” said Jordanian student Batool Hani Al-Bdour. There were ostensible concerns in the beginning. The students had to break their unconscious prejudices about each other, some of which they didn’t know they possessed, as Elm Place seventhgrader Namrita Narula said. There was the issue of religion, with the Jordanians being Muslim and the Americans being Christian or Jewish. The Jordanian girls were also not used to interacting with boys in a school setting. Parents on both sides were surprisingly supportive, and time broke down any uneasiness and discomfort. The students came to realize that they have so many similarities in spite of the differences. “I knew that just by impacting one of their lives, that just brings a smile to my face,” said Narula. “When they hosted their first bake sale and made $100, it was amazing to hear that because those actions are giving a sense of empowerment to those girls.” A social responsibility is the reason Greenwald started the school program more than 20 years ago. She says the kids are always amazed that they can have a real impact on the world. By teaching a systematic way of problem solving, from outlining the issue to community outreach, the students learn organization and achieving an outcome. “You can’t teach that just from a book; there’s nothing like real experience,” said Greenwald. “Once you’re connected to real people in another place, be it the U.S. or somewhere else, the news is never the same to you.” Although Greenwald has brought several groups to the international competition, this year is special to her for many reasons. She’s sharing the experience with an old student, who she now views as a dear friend, and she is hosting the Jordanians in her home. Her husband has had to move out for cultural reasons, and she has to be conscious of the Jordanians’ dietary restrictions. The Jordanians, in turn, are excited to cook for the Americans. Hani Al-Bdour speaks for the group when she says that the Jordanian students have been in awe of the nature and people on the North Shore. They are looking to win the international competition with their American friends. “We connected as much in 24 hours as we have the entire year, and I can’t envision what the project would be like had they not come here,” Garfinkel said. ■

‘Lifer’ compiles slew of accomplishments at NSCDS

Hanna Cunningham

■ by angelika labno Hanna Cunningham is what North Shore Country Day School calls a “lifer”— someone who stayed at the small private

school from kindergarten to senior year. “People always ask me why I stayed,” she said. “You get to do all sorts of things at North Shore, which was great.” In her 14 years there, she has developed

as a performer, an athlete and a budding writer. In the earlier years, Cunningham enjoyed chorus and musicals. She credits performing for increasing her confidence. After trying out a few sports, including field hockey and tennis, she decided to stick with running. She picked up cross country in high school and earned all conference her junior year. Since middle school, Cunningham also participated in track, but she was never able to complete an entire year due to her other responsibilities. For her senior year, Cunningham chose to fully dedicate herself to track. Her hard work paid off by qualifying for the state track meet at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston in mid-May. She did not place in the 3200meter run, but she did drop her time by 20 seconds, from 12:52 to 12:32. “I feel so fortunate to have gotten to end high school with such an amazing and unforgettable experience,” she said. “For me, going to the state meet was about improving my time, and improving it a solid amount. It was not about placing high amongst the other girls.” “She’s been a great team leader for us this year,” said track coach Patrick McHugh. “She had a number of very solid races and gradually got better and better.” For her Senior Service Project, Cunningham volunteers at the YWCA for the Ricky Byrdsong Memorial Race Against Hate. Having been a participant in the race in previous years, she now helps the executive director with promoting and marketing materials.

Off the track, Cunningham is a fashion fiend. She spends every night reading her favorite blog, Cupcakes and Cashmere, and flips through the pages of Condé Nast magazines. Conversely, Cunningham habitually reads The New York Times, particularly the world section. An inspirational English teacher, a love for reading and an exceptional command of the language draw her towards journalism.

“I have a lot to learn, but I’m excited to get to college and learn about it.” | Hanna Cunningham “I love the combination of words and pictures together,” she said. Cunningham is preparing to go to George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs in the fall. In addition to studying op-ed writers, she has gotten a head start by being a genre editor for the national student literary magazine, Polyphony H.S. She was the third in line to contribute to edits and suggestions on creative non-fiction, poetry and prose. “I have a lot to learn, but I’m excited to get to college and learn about it,” she said. “To get a job at any newspaper or magazine would be awesome.” ■

■ by katie rose mceneely Rebecca Grill is the natural areas manager at the Park District of Highland Park. Reading: I am reading “Buffalo for the Broken Heart” by Dan O’Brien. I think that part of my job is to read the landscape and read the possibilities and limitations and put them into context. This book is about a man who lives in the Dakotas and has a cattle ranch. It’s about his first year trying to raise buffalo (native animals) and how he and the buffalo grow together. I’m also reading Edward Tufty’s “Envisioning Information;” he’s a statistician who’s very interested in visual displays of information Listening: I’ve been listening to birdsong — I’m waiting for the migratory birds. I’m not an expert birder, but we’ve had sandhill cranes and that was such a good harbinger of spring coming on. We had our migratory bird survey in May at the Park District; I have birds on my brain. Watching: I don’t have a lot of time to watch TV, but I’ve been watching theatre. I enjoy Writer’s Theatre in Glencoe and the last thing I saw there was “Hamlet,” which was knock your socks off. Of course, that’s an intimate theatre, and Hamlet’s ghost is literally a few feet away from you. The way they staged it was just incredible. Following: We’re doing a lot of work on the lakefront. I follow the Great Lakes network, and they have a very good daily news feature where they do stories around the Great Lakes basin — climate change, water levels. I also follow The New York Times, and I like their website for their science news, but also for fashion, style, and the arts. I think a great deal of our work is about connecting people to the outdoor world, and I think having an understanding of what’s going on in the broader culture is important. I like looking for ideas about communication and what people are excited about. Activity: I’m involved in developing this education for the lakefront in Highland Park for grammar school

kids, and we’re also working with the high school kids where they come down to the ravine and do different experiments abut the ravine ecosystem — looking at native fish and what features of the habitat they use, and testing for water quality — temperature, dissolved oxygen, sediment levels. And we talk about how people’s activities in the water affect the stream. I also ride a horse — mine lives out in Spring Grove. I do a modest hunter-jumper practice with him. It’s my relaxation. Eating: I have been learning a lot more about vegetarianism. I’m not pursuing it terribly actively, but I have a friend who’s been influencing me in that area, and it’s an interesting exploration. I was in South Carolina and discovered collard greens and how to cook them. I treat it like spinach — steam it and cook it down with olive and garlic. I also love the Curry Hut lunch buffet in Highwood.

It’s my relaxation.” | Rebecca Grill What is your favorite mistake? My favorite mistakes are always ones of discovery. I find that I’m not terribly good with directions, so I might end up in a place I didn’t know I was going to be; there’s a lot of serendipity in my life, where I’ve found a natural area and I’ve gotten to explore it. That’s always fun for me. One time we were doing some family history research and we were in Maryland, driving around and looking for things that had records 300 years ago, and I came to the end of the earth out there, the shoreline of Maryland, and I stood there wondering which of the islands were part of my family. ■

24 | lifestyle & arts Galeski takes swing at launching sunday breakfast PGA tournament ■ by david sweet When two friends working at the Bob Hope Classic in Palm Springs suggested Mike Galeski leave the Connecticut winter behind, he jumped on a plane and played 36 holes in California the next day. Even better than the sunshine was what Galeski found inside tournament headquarters. “I went into the office at the Bob Hope Classic and said, ‘This is what I want to do,’ “ recalls Galeski of that day 35 years ago — before the golf boom, when pros still paid for their own range balls. “I was interested in how all the pieces came together at a tournament.” Today, Galeski of Lake Forest is poised to launch a new golf tournament at North Shore Country Club in Glenview. The Encompass Championship — a Champions Tour event

as by experiences for fans, sponsors (CareerBuilder is the presenting one) and volunteers alike — a point he emphasized as a thunderstorm roared outside the clubhouse,

“I went into the office at the Bob Hope Classic and said, ‘This is what I want to do.’” | Mike Galeski that expects Tom Kite, Nick Price, Lake Forest’s Chip Beck and other notables for its 54-hole event from Friday, June 21-Sunday, June 23 — promises to be different in a few ways from the typical PGA Tour stop, including the fact that kids 18 and under can show up free. “We want it to be inclusive for the community,” said Galeski, the tournament director who started last July. “The Champions Tour players are very approachable – they’ll flip kids a ball. “This is a tremendous facility to watch golf,” added Galeski about the venue, which once hosted a U.S. Open. “You aren’t trekking over hills. There are a lot of treelined fairways so you can watch in the shade.” Lured from Portland, Ore., to run the Encompass Championship when Pro Links Sports was awarded the management contract, Galeski said the reputation of Chicago golf and the ability to build a tournament from the ground up attracted him. He noted that success for the inaugural event won’t be defined as much by numbers

Mike Galeski

knowing that stormy weather on tournament weekend would diminish the crowds. Galeski’s love for the game actually pre-dated that flight to Palm Springs. His father was a club pro in Watertown, Conn., and Galeski grew up in the golf shop. “I did illustrious jobs like cleaning the range balls and vacuuming,” he recalls. “And I used what my Dad called the 4-iron — a broom that cleaned up dirt from the cleats.” He loved watching tournaments take place there, from a member-guest to the state junior championship, and observing the setup of it all. By the time he became tournament director for the Nabisco Dinah Shore LPGA Tournament in the mid-1980s, he had found his niche. It amazes him the differences between running a tournament then — before the advent of laptops — and now. “You had to type scorecards on a typewriter — and how do you spell Calcavecchia again?” he mused about Mark, one of the players who, ironically, is expected to play at North Shore. “Golf has changed so much. You didn’t have millions of dollars at your disposal for corporate tents.” Back then he also encountered worries unlikely to vex him at North Shore. In 1988, Amy Alcott promised the press that she’d jump in the pond on 18 if she won. Dinah Shore herself chimed in, “If you jump, I’ll jump.” “I asked Dinah, ‘Are you really going to jump if she wins? She said, ‘I have to now,’ “ Galeski recalls. “I’m figuring out how this is going to work. We had a bathrobe and towels all ready for her. She had to be about 70 at the time, and she jumped in.” Galeski’s life in the golf business stretches beyond tournament director posts. He served as senior vice president of sports marketing at Callaway and worked as an assistant pro at a club in California, among other positions. He says he’s a “rusty” four handicap — he’s only played 18 holes this year due to tournament responsibilities — but looks forward to getting to know Chicago’s courses. He’s already enjoyed Jasper’s Café in Glenview “for the good old standard breakfast.” There are still a few spots open for the Encompass pro-am, where retired Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher and others will play, as well as spots for volunteers. More information can be found by checking or by calling (847) 901-9228. ■

TV hit keeps North Shore native busy in Hollywood

Steppenwolf Theatre Company co-founder Jeff Perry, who is starring in the television hit Scandal, is shown during the world-premiere production of August: Osage County.

photography by michael brosilow ■ by gregg shapiro Highland Park native and Steppenwolf founding/ensemble member Jeff Perry has a hit on his hands. As Cyrus Beene in the highly rated Scandal on ABC, Perry gets to unleash his inner “political animal” weekly. He also gets to play one of the most well-rounded gay characters on television, not to mention the chief of staff to President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn). A familiar face to TV viewers and moviegoers alike, Perry’s theater roots are equally strong and deep. Perry took time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions from The North Shore Weekend: Gregg Shapiro: As a founding member of Steppenwolf, you have strong ties to Chicago. What were some of your favorite Steppenwolf roles and performances? Jeff Perry: Some of the favorites [pauses thoughtfully] – the character of Aston in Harold Pinter’s The Caretaker, directed by John Malkovich; Joe from William Saroyan’s The Time of Your Life, directed by Tina Landau; Bill from August: Osage County, directed by Anna Shapiro; Astrov from Chekov’s Uncle Vanya, directed by Sheldon Patinkin; Austin from Sam Shepard’s True West, directed by Gary Sinise; Noah Joad from Frank Galati’s adaptation of John Steinbeck’s The Grapes Of Wrath, directed by Frank Galati. GS: Do you have an all-time favorite among the ones you’ve named? JP: No, they are like children. I can’t say one is a favorite. It would hurt my heart [laughs]. GS: What does the success and international recognition that Steppenwolf has received mean to you personally? JP: I feel a lot of love and gratitude for the lineage of inspiration that we got from ensemble work that inspired us. In such beautiful ways it feels like you are able to pass on some beating-the-odds example; sort of an artistic example of inmates running the asylum. Usually, people in their 20s will take that passion and start their own theaters and create work that is with actors also inspired to practice storytelling with communication between actors. It’s a central element, inspiration for how to tell stories. GS: On May 20 you received the 2013 Tribute Award from the League of Chicago Theatres. What does this honor mean to you? JP: [Laughs] I’m grinning. I’m humbled by it. I’m really

tickled by it [laughs]. I think, as someone who has loved and is devoted to ensemble-oriented theater, it feels like recognition and a pat on the back. Sort of “job well done,” on that level. It feels very shared with all of the people who have mentored me and that includes my contemporaries and colleagues. I’ve been able to practice thousands of hours in an art that I love with the likes of the nine original artists that

“The Scandal cast -- whether it’s the youngest of Katie Lowes all the way to the old-timer of me -- are deeply appreciative character actors landing in gorgeous, complex parts at a time in their careers when they can appreciate it greatly.” | Jeff Perry were Steppenwolf, going all the way back to 1976, to the 40-some collected artists that we are now, in a way of doing theater that Chicago represents; doing it for the love of it. GS: You’ve mentioned ensemble work a few times and before appearing in ABC’s Scandal, you were also in Shonda Rhimes’ other hit series, Grey’s Anatomy. She seems to have developed an ensemble, much the way that Steppenwolf did. Is the ensemble experience something you actively seek? JP: It is something I actively seek. Sometimes I find it and sometimes I don’t. I’ve been shaking my head in really happy wonder and a little bit of surprise. I’m feeling it as an everyday regular in Scandal to a greater extent just because of circumstances then I might have been able to feel in Grey’s Anatomy as a recurring, sort of more occasional player.

There’s something too, my brilliant wife, Linda Lowy, the casting director of everything Shonda has created in television, she’s also pretty deeply gifted in putting together these actors. There’s a level both of us are appreciating right now -- you sort of have to feel like the stars have to align and some good fortune for it to happen, and that’s that on Scandal -- I tease people when they’re asking me about it -- we have the chemistry of an 11-year-old girl’s sleepover [laughs]. People are just delighted to be with each other. In another interesting way, the Scandal cast -- whether it’s the youngest of Katie Lowes all the way to the old-timer of me -- are deeply appreciative character actors landing in gorgeous, complex parts at a time in their careers when they can appreciate it greatly. The maraschino on top of the ice cream sundae being that we find out that we are gushingly kind of in crush with each other. It’s very sweet. GS: You’re currently working in Hollywood, but how often do you get back to Chicago or Highland Park? JP: Two days ago (May 4) for Steppenwolf’s annual gala, me and maybe a third of the ensemble that weren’t working for those particular days, were able together in Chicago for fund raising, for hanging, for giggling, for ensemble meeting, all that kind of stuff. It sort of depends on the years. GS: Do you have any favorite North Shore spots that you’d like to share with readers? JP: I don’t know if it still exists, but I have wonderful high school and 20-year-old memories of Virginia’s in Highwood. Breakfast at Virginia’s. I always remember the Highwood Italian-based food festival days. My boyhood memory of the Italian beef and sausages and peppers and everything there was crazy wonderful. I grew up on Burton Avenue, about four houses from the Clavey Road entrance to Ravinia Festival, with speaker systems that just kept getting better and better so he could sit in the backyard and pretty much hear every musical offering. Somewhere in there I worked for a summer at the box office at Ravinia Festival and got to attend a lot. That has great memories. Tromping through the ravines of Ravinia is something I love to do when I get back. It’s been a couple of cycles, but I was pretty regular at Focus on the Arts (at Highland Park High School), then L.A. life and parenthood and television work made that harder. ■

Antiques show keeps pace with changing desires

Antique dealer Heather Higgins will be at the Winnetka Summer Antiques Show this weekend.

Heather Higgins has been involved with antiques for four decades. She knows the Winnetka Summer Antiques Show will be different this year. Previously, Higgins would have not considered featuring items from the 1920s. The trend, however, has shifted to 20th-century designs. Michael Corbett, vice president of The Federalist Antiques in Kenilworth, has also seen great changes. In the past decade, “colonial revival” has all but disappeared, and mid-20th century items have gained appeal. “For people who are younger, things that are from the 1950s and 1960s are quite old. For us that are older, that is what we grew up with,” Higgins said. “We never thought it’d be desirable because it was always there. “The show has evolved because people are interested in different things,” he added. “No antique dealer knows exactly what the clients want, and that’s the fun part of the process.” The show, sponsored by the North Shore Antiques Dealers Association (NSADA), will take place from June 7-9 at the Winnetka Ice Arena. About 50 dealers from across the country and England will debut their treasures, from English furniture to Miriam Haskell jewelry to toys dating back to the late 1800s. Members of NSADA formed the show four years ago when a different event they were involved in was cancelled. The dealers who were signed up still wanted to do a show, so members scrambled to put one together.

06/08 – 06/09/13

Corbett details another change in the world of antiques: their use. Instead of viewing them as part of a collection, people are using them as design objects. Designers place a piece or two in the home to incorporate character and charm into the space. Antique shows can therefore be valuable hunts for designers and homeowners alike. What’s the appeal of antiques? Higgins attributes it to connecting one with his or her past. Reading about old games or furniture styles is one thing; seeing and touching it is quite another. For Higgins, she’s hoping to complete her tin collection. “I’m missing a color, so I’d like to find the missing tin,” she laughs. This year’s proceeds will benefit Lambs Farm. The nonprofit organization in Libertyville helps people with developmental disabilities by providing them with enriching experiences. More information on the show can be found at ■

A Matter of Taste

Executive chef relaunches with tapas concept

photography by joel lerner

Benjamin Brittsan

■ by katie rose mceneely Benjamin Brittsan is the executive chef and owner of Benjamin Tapas, the replacement for Benjamin’s Restaurant in Highland Park. It reopened on May 28.

How did you start cooking? I used to watch “The Frugal Gourmet” with my mother, and that was probably my first inspiration. I used to make my parents breakfast in bed, and that was the first real taste I got for cooking. I just fell in love with it from when I was 5. Years cooking? 15 years.

What prompted the change to tapas? When I first started Benjamin Restaurant, it was three and a half years in the making, and it was open for almost two and a half years. I wanted it to be a place where people on the North Shore could go instead of the city. It was very upscale but not “fine dining.” But I heard more and more that it was pretentious and too expensive, and I feel the people definitely want to eat good food, but at a price point they can afford. And that made me wonder if that was the right direction. And I thought, tapas is where I want to go: I love Spain, a lot of strong, bold flavors. The ambiance I had lent itself well to the change. It was very easy. I’ve worked at tapas restaurants in the past, and I think with the change in the price pint and the ambiance it’s more fun and family-friendly. I think we’re onto something. I can’t wait to get back in the kitchen. Signature dish? There are staples — baked goat cheese and tomato sauce, beef grilled with caramelized onions, we’ll have those, and then we have something more adventurous: our scallops, pan-seared with pea-puree with sofrito. We have the tapas people are used to [and some of our own]. Hopefully, it’s a good mix of food for everyone. How do you plan for so many different dishes? It keeps us busy, and it is very diverse, but a lot has to do with preparation and cross-utilization of the ingredients. I call it sunshine flavors: citrus, olives, oil. You always need a good three or four backups of each ingredient, it’s always rotating, and you always have a prep cook on hand, just in case. What do you like to eat at home? I like very simple food, but it really could be anything. Worthwhile gadget? I like a good citrus

squeezer. Favorite cookbook? There’s a chef by the name of Jose Andreus; he has a couple of tapas books that I’ve had my nose buried in over the past couple of weeks. He has a show on PBS called “Made in Spain.” Favorite fruit or vegetable? Can’t go wrong with a potato—they’re just really good. Proudest of: The fact that I feel more relaxed—the restaurant is laid back, it’s fun. It’s kind of a food-of-love thing. I’m glad I was able to recognize that the concept I was working on initially wasn’t working, and I was able to close down, reevaluate. Funniest or most memorable kitchen incident? We joke around all day, so pretty much everything is funny after 15 hours with a bunch of produce. We try to have fun.

Recipe: Citrus Marinated Olives: Combine all of the following ingredients in a ziplock bag and shake; marinate for at least 2-3 days before serving. 1 1/2 cups Kalamata olives 1 1/2 cups cracked brine-cured green olives 1 cup olive oil 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice 1/4 cup orange juice 6 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel 1 tablespoon grated orange peel 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper Benjamin Tapas is located at 1849 Second Street in Highland Park.

Lear lures critical support for new hospital ■ by

bob gariano

When Lake Forest Hospital became a wholly owned entity of Northwestern Memorial HealthCare in 2010, it was part of the strategic plan to reconstruct the 70-year-old Lake Forest facility. Northwestern Memorial HealthCare is a $1.7 billion not-for-profit medical provider but, even at this scale, the overall investment in a new hospital is a significant objective. The organization is in the early phase to raise part of that total investment from corporate, foundation, and private individual contributions. The responsibility for directing the fundraising campaign fell to Sharon Lear, Northwestern Memorial Foundation’s campaign director. In this work, Sharon collaborates closely with Peter Bower, Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital’s director of philanthropy, Holly Gibout, the foundation’s vice president of philanthropy, and Stephen Falk, the president of the foundation. Northwestern Memorial Healthcare is one of the best-managed healthcare organizations in the country. When it expanded from its base in Chicago to start serving the

residents of the North Shore, Northwestern understood that the medical and healthcare environment was changing in profound ways. One of the most important trends involved advancing medical technologies that allowed many treatments to be performed on an outpatient basis — where overnight hospitalization had earlier been required. To serve that need, Northwestern Medicine has expanded its outpatient facilities on the North Shore to include centers in Glenview and Grayslake. They also opened new physicians’ offices in Libertyville, Deerfield, Highland Park, and Evanston. Still, there will always be those illnesses that require hospitalization, and Lake Forest Hospital is designed to meet that need. Sharon Lear spoke about the challenges of funding such a new hospital. “We know that people in the North Shore communities are generous, but they also have many causes seeking their support. These are people who went to some of our greatest universities and who are deeply involved with their churches and the arts. They have many people seeking their support and contributions. “I usually start our conversations by

(847) 446-7720 800 Elm Street, Winnetka

asking potential donors to list their top three priorities. A healthy community usually is included in that list. I can then describe the world-class facilities and health professionals that are part of the Northwestern Memorial Healthcare organization and how we are investing to make that system ready for the emerging needs of the North Shore communities. That is why we need their support in this work.” Lear has been a development executive for Northwestern Memorial Healthcare Foundation for 11 years. And the medical profession runs in her family. “My father was a doctor who specialized in hematology and oncology. But more than simply his own practice, he was driven by a larger vision. He helped to establish one of the preeminent cancer treatment centers in the Philadelphia area and was chief of medicine of that facility. He always was seeking to bring the best care and most contemporary treatments for his patients.” “As the oldest child in our family, I remember moving a lot as my father finished his medical training and residency. Even in his early years, he had a larger vision for what he could accomplish in the healthcare field. Part of his fundamental belief was that great efforts are built from the efforts of the best people. As he built the center, he always was seeking doctors with backgrounds from schools like Johns Hopkins or the University of Pennsylvania, places that trained the best physicians. We have that same commitment to world-class talent at Northwestern.” Lear went on to describe her work as the campaign director. “In any community, health care is a salient value. Contributing to a fund to help build a new facility like Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital does not come along

every day, but it is a perfect conduit for people who care about the health and well being of themselves, their families, their employees, and their fellow citizens.” Lear earned her degree in English and art history at the University of Rochester. She travelled extensively as a student, even participating one semester in an archaeological dig near London. She became involved in the arts and to this day is an accomplished pianist. This multiple disciplined, liberal arts education has been useful to her in her development work. “I think that my training in communications and English helped me be a better listener. My education helps me to identify with the different cultures and backgrounds of people that I meet in my work. It allows me to identify with people who have different motivations and interests in their philanthropic activities.” Development is not a part-time job. That commitment has made Lear’s husband, Bill, an investment banker, and her 15-year-old daughter, Anna, a great support in her work. “This is not a 9-5 job. I know that in the development field I must always be on. I often meet people in social situations who are supporters or potential contributors. It is important to always be a good representative of the foundation.” Construction of the new Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital will begin with groundbreaking in 2014. The hospital is scheduled to open in 2017. The realization of that vision will be a result of many people’s hard work. Sharon Lear’s development work and the generosity of people on the North Shore who support this effort will be a big part of making that vision happen.

high five Loyola Academy girls are golden as they win fifth straight state lacrosse title

Members of the Loyola Academy girls lacrosse team are all smiles after beating Montini in the state title game.

Annie Dooley of the Ramblers fires up a shot in the title game. She tallied five goals.

photography by joel lerner

■ by bill mclean On the eve of last weekend’s Illinois High School Women’s Lacrosse Association state championship game, rain forced Loyola Academy’s girls team to skip practice and hang out in a classroom. Sticks rested. Ramblers sat. “No chalk talk,” LA coach Jim Dwyer said. “We sat around in there, discussing what it meant to be a part of this team, a part of this program. “Everybody spoke,” he added. They went from all talk to all action a day later at Glenbrook South High School in Glenview, routing Montini Catholic 16-5 for the program’s fifth straight state title and eighth under Dwyer on May 31. “Everybody was a threat for us tonight,” Ramblers junior

middie Maggie Nick said. “You could count on so many of our players.” Nick whipped in four goals, one fewer than classmate Annie Dooley’s game-high total. Ramblers senior middie and University of Notre Dame-bound Katherine Eilers scored three times, and senior middie and University of Michigan recruit Anna Schueler tallied two goals, including the game’s first goal. Junior attack DeeDee Snediker and senior middie Shannon Jacobs also scored for the champs. Montini (15-3) — it’s tyke-like program is only six years old — was no match for been-there-won-many LA (23-3) after having defeated New Trier HS 17-15 in a state semifinal on May 29. The title tilt wasn’t exactly a battle royal; it was a battle maroon — the dominant school color of LA and Montini. “We were leery of Montini, especially after it beat New Trier,” Dwyer said. “And it won the first five possessions

against us tonight. That’s a very good team. “But our kids never showed fear.” Loyola was up 3-1 in the first half when it held on to the ball for a month — or so it seemed. Nick’s first goal of the game, at 8:18, capped the lengthy possession. The Ramblers then scored four more unanswered goals and enjoyed an 8-1 advantage at the half. “We knew Montini likes to play aggressively,” Eilers said. “Maintaining possession by swinging the ball around is what we wanted to do. “We didn’t shoot until we made sure we had a really good look.” Montini’s Lady Broncos scored first in the second half, giving the upstarts some hope. But Dwyer’s club answered nearly four minutes later and eventually stretched the lead to 14-4 on Nick’s final goal at the 8:10 mark. Dwyer grew particularly animated on the sideline after Jacobs struck for the final goal with 1:30 left. As soon as the ball zipped past Montini’s goalkeeper, Dwyer pivoted toward his assistant coaches and reserve players and joyously flipped his bottle of water at least six feet above his head. “It never gets old,” Dwyer said of winning state championships. “Never. This team was special. Every team I’ve coached has been special.” As the Ramblers exited the stadium at Glenbrook South, LA keeper Mary Kate Vanecko, one of the team’s nine seniors, had to backtrack briefly to retrieve her plastic water bottle. It was all alone, abutting the back of a cage she had defended. “Determination and teamwork — those were big factors for us,” said Vanecko, bottle in hand. Vanecko had stayed focused throughout the title game, even though she only had to stand idly for most of the game while her team’s offense dictated most of the action at the other end of the field. “I did not daydream,” she insisted. “I was into it mentally.” Dwyer was beaming afterward, reveling in an atmosphere of flashing cameras, thrilled Ramblers, mingling fans and his players’ proud parents. “Lacrosse is such a big part of his life,” Eilers said. “We are his second family.” And first among girls lax teams in Illinois. Once again. Notable: Loyola defeated Hinsdale Central 15-9 in a state semifinal on May 29, behind four goals apiece from Schueler, Snediker and junior middie/attack Gieriet Bowen. Eilers scored twice and dished three assists, and sophomore attack Caroline Heldring delivered three assists. Vanecko finished with 10 saves. … Dooley (LA, ’14) committed early to the University of Notre Dame, where her sister, Grace (LA, ’10), plays lacrosse. … Eilers, Nick, Schueler, Vanecko and Ramblers senior defender Grace Foley earned first team IHSWLA all-state honors; Dooley made the second team; and Snediker, Heldring and senior defender Clare Kennedy were honorable mention picks. ■.

Callahan’s dramatic goal helps lift Ramblers to second straight state title

Loyola Academy’s Colin Dowdle accepts the state trophy after his team’s victory over New Trier.

photography by joel lerner

■ by bill mclean Loyola Academy boys lacrosse coach Rob Snyder had one eye on the clock, one eye on the ball. His Ramblers were leading New Trier High School’s Trevians 4-2, as time in the first half melted toward 0:00 in the Illinois High School Lacrosse Association boys state championship last weekend in Northfield. LA junior attackman Jack Penn whipped an urgent pass to classmate Brian ‘Cal’ Callahan, another attackman. Callahan then quickly unleashed a wicked shot through NT’s defense on June 1. As the ball found sanctuary in a cage behind Trevians senior goalkeeper Phil Rooney, one of Snyder’s eyes caught what was left on the clock as half of the packed stadium roared deliriously. “Three-tenths of a second,” he would recall later. Loyola 5, New Trier 2 — suddenly. The top-seeded Trevians trudged off Robert Naughton field. The second-seeded Ramblers, meanwhile, bounced and skipped and hooted. That last thing they wanted to do was rest during halftime. “Great shot by ‘Cal,’ Ramblers senior middie and faceoff aficionado Charlie Schatz said. “Money,” he added. LA had secured priceless momentum and proceeded to ride it throughout the second half of its 9-6 victory. It was Loyola’s second straight state title and 10th in program history. The win also avenged a 6-4 loss on April 16. “They beat us up then,” Snyder recalled. “Today we came out with energy and focus; our guys were ready.” LA senior middie Jack Ruf scored the game’s first goal

at 9:04 of the first quarter. Ruf’s season before then, in a word: rough. He missed the first three-quarters of the season after suffering an unusual injury in a frigid preseason practice. Ruf tore an oblique muscle near his right hip. “I made contact with a teammate, and then I heard a pop,” said the Denison (Ohio) University-bound Ruf. “I should have stretched before practice.” Ramblers senior attackman Robert Lapp scored (on an assist from Schatz) the first of his two goals to put the visitors up 2-0 at 7:25 of the first frame. New Trier (18-4) didn’t tally its first goal until the 1:43 mark of the first quarter. The Trevs — state champions from 2005-11 — tied it a 2-2 early in the second quarter, on a goal by senior attackman Michael Thomas. But the Ramblers (19-3) produced a 3-0 run in the final 2:41 of the quarter, including Callahan’s dramatic clock-beater. “Loyola played well; Loyola beat us,” New Trier coach Tom Herrala said. “[LA’s] goalie [senior Alex Armstrong, 12 saves] played well, made some great saves. That was a high level of competition, right there. Two of the best teams in the Midwest, going against each other. “We had a good year, but we don’t play to reach the state final; we play for banners.” Right before uttering “banners,” Herrala turned slightly to his left and pointed to the nine boys lacrosse statechampionship banners that adorned New Trier Stadium above a set of bleachers. Another Thomas goal cut Loyola’s lead to 6-4 late in the second half. Loyola’s defense, led by US Lacrosse AllAmerican and Bucknell-bound Michael Schiappa, would never let the lead dwindle to one goal the rest of the way.

Callahan notched two of his team-high three goals in the fourth quarter, after Ramblers senior attackman Charlie Gamber had given LA a 7-4 advantage in the second minute of the frame. “Too many mental mistakes, too many unforced errors,” summed New Trier senior defenseman and All-American Dylan Curry. “Loyola is an athletic team, and their players ran by a lot of us too often.” Penn and junior attackman Ryan Chestnut scored Loyola’s two other goals. NT got three assists from junior middie Matt Solberg and a goal apiece from sophomore middie David Hammes, senior middie Tyler Schmarak and senior attackman Brooks Ashmor. “We came out with a lot of fire and stayed pumped up,” said Callahan, primarily a scout team player last spring. “Establishing momentum was exactly what we wanted to do.” Notable: In the IHSLA state semifinals on May 30, Loyola beat Libertyville 11-4 while NT topped St. Viator 12-9. … LA’s Schatz, UMass-bound, also earned US Lacrosse All-America status. Schatz and NT senior middie Michael Germano engaged in numerous, ferocious face-off battles in last weekend’s state championship. Most face-offs last a few seconds. The bulk of the Schatz-Germano face-off scrums lasted way longer than that and resembled a pair of wrestlers grappling for a takedown. “I’m guessing those two spent [a combined] five minutes during their face-offs today,” Ruf said. … Loyola’s Schiappa and New Trier senior defenseman Ross Weber achieved Academic All-America status (minimum 3.7 GPA, 27 ACT). … Loyola’s Callahan and Penn, along with New Trier’s Rooney, were named to the IHSLA all-state second team. ■

Devin Burns was off. Way off. The Loyola Academy freshman soccer forward thought she would score 18 goals for the Ramblers this spring. “Maybe 20,” she said. The 5-foot-6 Burns burned goalkeepers a schoolrecord 35 times in 2013, as Loyola went 23-3-1 and reached the Class 3A Glenbrook South SuperSectional on May 28. “I didn’t think I’d play as much as I did,” Burns, an all-sectional pick, recalled after LA’s 2-0 loss to Buffalo Grove High School in the super-sectional. “And when I did, I considered myself just another player.” Loyola beat host Glenbrook South 2-0 in its season opener on March 12. “Just another player” scored both goals. Burns’ final goal of the season was the difference in Loyola’s 1-0 defeat of host New Trier High School in a sectional title match on May 24. The author of the assist that night was senior back Corey Burns, Devin’s University of Iowa-bound sister and another player with gobs of talent and instincts and off-thecharts soccer savvy. “The season was the most fun I’ve ever had playing soccer, and getting to play with my sister was an amazing experience,” Devin said. Big sis, also 5-6, earned All-America honors and struck for nine goals and delivered 11 assists in her final season for the Ramblers. She and classmate Jill Stevens, a midfielder, captained the freshman-laden club. Five rookies — Burns, midfielders Shannon Powers and Natalie Joyce, forward Alex Yasko and defender Lauren Chrisman — started for LA in the supersectional, and a sixth freshman, forward Lila Adler, also played big minutes against the Bison (25-2-1). “It was a neat group to coach, a wonderful group to be around,” LA coach Craig Snower said. “Our older kids embraced the younger kids and enjoyed competing with them. “If there’s another 3A team in the state with as many freshman starters as we had, I’d like to meet it.” Ramblers junior Tori Iatarola, a resolute and eversteady center-midfielder, played in between the old Burns and the young Burns all spring. She genuinely appreciated sharing minutes with the super sibs.

“I have always looked up to Corey, mostly because of her incredible work rate,” Iatarola said. “She showed such great leadership as a captain, and she was never afraid to attack on defense. If she attacked too aggressively, she never had a problem recovering. “Devin,” the all-stater added, “has so many skills, so many strengths. On offense she kept going and going and going.” When Buffalo Grove coach Pat Dudle viewed and broke down match videos of the Ramblers before last week’s super-sectional in Glenview, uniform numbers 17 [Corey Burns] and 14 [Devin Burns] caught his attention. “That [Corey Burns] is tough … a tough nut to crack,” said Dudle, whose club won this spring’s prestigious Pepsi Showdown. “And [No.] 14, all those goals she scored. … We knew we’d be in for quite a challenge. “We have so much respect for Loyola, one of the most solid programs in the Chicago area.” When BG opted not to double team Devin Burns, it surrounded the constant threat with three Bison. Corey Burns booted a lengthy lead pass to her sister at the 32:30 mark of the second half, in what turned out to be one of Loyola’s best scoring chances. Some 16 minutes later, Powers blasted a left-footed shot that nearly found senior midfielder Emily Affinito, stationed a few yards to the left of BG sophomore keeper Sarah O’Connor. Ramblers junior midfielder Elle Zadina, like Iatarola, displayed poise and dished accurate passes in transition. LA’s first-year players, meanwhile, played like vets. The six Loyola freshmen who played significant minutes this spring also suit up for FC United, a club that will contend for the State Cup this month. “They all did a great job all season,” Corey Burns said. Meaning Loyola’s program is in good hands for several more years. In good feet, too. Notable: Junior forward Kelli Zickert scored both goals in BG’s 2-0 defeat of Loyola in the Glenbrook South Super-sectional. It was a 1-0 match until 1:23 remained in the second half. BG netted the first goal in the sixth minute of the second half, off a free kick. … BG ended up fourth at the 3A state tourney at North Central College in Naperville on June 1. … Loyola all-state senior goalkeeper Brittany San Roman and her defensive mates allowed only 12 goals in ’13. … Loyola’s varsity practiced occasionally at 6 a.m. on Saturdays this spring. Its favorite postpractice haunt was Walker Bros. Original Pancake House in Wilmette. “Chocolate chip; I love ordering the chocolate chip pancakes,” Iatarola said. ■

New Trier High School’s Mimi Morris (No. 2) gives teammate Lily Novak a high five during her team’s five-run third inning. Morris, who hit .510 for the Trevians, will play at James Madison University next season.

End of the line ■ by kevin reiterman For the most part, the grounds crew at Rolling Meadows High School did an awesome job. The Mustangs’ softball field, formerly a baseball diamond, was in pristine condition. But that chalk strip down the left-field line? “A little squiggly,” said New Trier High School softball coach John Cadwell. In what proved to be the final at-bat of the 2013 season for the Trevians (29-3), leadoff hitter Mimi Morris ripped a shot down the left-field line. The third-base umpire saw it one way. Separating his thumb from his index finger, he told the world — specifically John Cadwell — that the ball was two inches foul. Cadwell saw it differently. “I thought it hit the line,” said the mild-mannered Trevians coach, who had a short and very sportsmanlike debate with the man in blue. If fair, Morris’ smash would have gone for a two-run double. Instead, on the very next pitch, she grounded out to the pitcher and the Class 4A sectional championship game on June 1 ended 13-7 in favor of top-seeded Barrington. “Inches,” said Morris. “Disappointing,” the senior left fielder added. “It would have scored two runs. But what happens, happens.” For a while, it looked like the talented Fillies (34-1), who defeated Warren 8-3 on June 3 to advance to the state finals, might win this game by a country mile. They crushed four home runs in the first two innings against New Trier ace Allison Quigley to take a commanding 8-0 lead. Quigley, a junior right-hander, entered the game 21-0 with a sparkling 0.56 ERA. “Allison didn’t have her best stuff,” said Cadwell. “And everybody in their lineup can hit. They’re very aggressive. They took it to us in the first inning.” “Barrington’s players watched us on Wednesday (sectional semifinal game against Lake Zurich),” said Quigley, who was relieved in the fourth inning by Amanda Howell.

Chalk one up for homer-happy Fillies as they top talented Trevians in sectional final “They were watching my tendencies. They came out ready “I was just trying to keep my composure. I was trying not to let things get to me.” Tess Bolger of the Fillies was Ruthian. She hit solo home runs in her first two at-bats. Maggie O’Hara smacked a three-run blast, while Katie Dehnert belted a two-run shot. For those counting, the Fillies will head to state with an eye-popping 54 home runs. “Their pitcher (Quigley) was undefeated. We knew how good she was,” said Barrington coach Perry Peterson. “We have the utmost respect for New Trier,” the veteran coach added. Despite giving Barrington a huge head start, Cadwell’s club kept at it. Megan Neuhaus sparked a five-run, third-inning uprising with a sharp single to right-center field. “Megan got it started,” said NT first baseman Alexa Caruso, who extended the inning with a two-run single to center. “It got contagious.” Morris, Lily Novak, Quigley and Ryan Lee also had hits in the frame. Morris, Novak and Caruso — who hit 1, 2 and 4 in the order — finished with two hits apiece. Caruso also drove in a run in the sixth inning on a sacrifice fly. “We were in position to score more runs. We had a chance to make more things happen,” said Cadwell. The Trevians, who finished two wins shy of tying the school record (31), appear to be set for next year. Seven starters from Saturday’s scorecard will return. Morris, however, will be moving on and playing college softball at Division I James Madison University in Virginia. “She’s been an outstanding performer for us the past two years,” said Cadwell. “She’s multi-talented, multidimensional. She’s got great hands, great speed and great bat speed.” Voted team MVP, Morris led the Trevians in hitting with a .510 batting average. She finished with 49 hits, 34 runs and eight extra base hits. “Hitting leadoff, she made things happen for us,” Cadwell added. Recap: With a bat in her hands in the bottom of the

seventh inning, Allison Quigley imagined herself in Lake Zurich High School pitcher Olivia Schneider’s shoes. Quigley and the Trevians were tied 3-3 with LZ’s Bears in a Class 4A Rolling Meadows Sectional semifinal at the time. “I hate it when I’m pitching and a batter crowds the plate,” Quigley would admit later. Quigley crowded the plate as she awaited pitches from Schneider on May 29. But Quigley, a right-handed hitter, had another reason for invading more of the plate’s personal space. “I knew she’d likely throw outside pitches,” Quigley added. On a 1-0 count and with Trevians on second and third base, Quigley lined a walk-off single to left-center to beat the Bears 4-3. She also got the win, after fanning seven and allowing one earned run in a four-hitter. AQ owns a high IQ — in a pitcher’s circle and in a batter’s box. In the top of the seventh inning, Quigley was one strike away from picking up a 3-2 victory. A two-out RBI double delayed the end of LZ’s season. In the top of the seventh inning, Quigley was one strike away from picking up a 3-2 victory. A two-out RBI double delayed the end of LZ’s season. “Our early lead (3-0 after one inning) might have taken some of the edge off us,” NT coach John Cadwell said after his club improved to 29-2. Trevians senior Ryan Lee drew a bases-loaded walk to make it 1-0, before junior Lauren Secaras knocked in two more runs with a bloop infield single that landed behind LZ’s first baseman and in front of the infield-outfield lip. Its flight mirrored that of a chip shot in golf. “I went with the pitch,” Secaras said of the outside pitch. Secaras later ripped a double to left in the bottom of the sixth inning. “That one felt good,” she said. NT senior outfielder Mimi Morris led off the bottom of the seventh with a single to shallow left. Sophomore Lily Novak then reached on an error after tapping a bunt. A wild pitch advanced the runners to second and third, setting the stage for Quigley’s clutch hit. ■ Bill McLean contributed

YOur HOme’s PrICe TaG Pricing is about supply and demand, something that is part science of economics and part the art of the deal. Your Realtor will start out with a Comparative Market Analysis, choosing homes in your area that are comparable in size, bedrooms, bathrooms and amenities. The list should contain homes in the same village and specific to your neighborhood. This is a standing rule. Then you use the closest comparables in amenities and acreage. The main things to compare besides bedrooms and bathrooms are square footage, amenities like fireplaces and pools, garages and the age of a home. You won’t get a fair market analysis if the house you’re marketing is being compared to other homes that are brand new or much older vintage houses. Another thing to keep in mind is location. Pay attention to physical barriers such as major streets, access to freeways and if there are multiple entries and exits to the neighborhoods. A good market analysis shows how competitive your house can be in today’s market, so consult your Realtor and find out what your house is really worth!

PL055-003586 ‘She can blast the ball with the best of ’em. Twice this season, Lake Forest High School senior goalkeeper Liz Clark did the unlikely. She punted goal kicks so high and so far in games against Mundelein and Wauconda that she was credited with … assists. “Two-touch” assists — also known as “hockey assists” — are rare gems for a goalkeeper. “It helps having the wind,” said Clark, trying to downplay her unusual feats. Her left foot proved to be a major weapon for Lake Forest (11-3-6), which was eliminated by Prairie Ridge 1-0 in the Class 2A super-sectional at Barrington High School on May 28. According to LF head coach Ty Sluckslager, Clark averaged 40 yards per punt. And there’s no downplaying her value between the posts. Clark allowed only two goals in five state playoff games. “We counted on her to make the big save,” Sluckslager said. “She got a big one against Deerfield (in the sectional final on May 25).” Her hands? Velcro good. “Balls in the air stuck to her like flies on flypaper,” said the coach said. “And she didn’t give up goals on rebounds.” Being a three-year starter served her well. She capped her season by being named honorable mention all-North Suburban Conference. “Her presence,” said Sluckslager. “That’s what impressed me about her this season. She played with more confidence, which was a piece that was missing (until this season). We saw a different player this year. Her growth was tremendous.” Clark had a flawless game going against Prairie Ridge. But then, with 7:40 left in regulation, a mistake in communication allowed Wolves senior Larissa Dooley to slip in a hard-to-miss, open netter from 15 yards out.

“I’m watching it from 70 yards away …,” said Stuckslager. “You see the open net and all of a sudden everything goes in slow motion.” Clark tried to recover but slipped on the Barrington turf. “I’ve got to let it go,” she said. “Grow from it. Reflect on it. Not dwell on it.” A few days after the game, Clark found perspective. Stats class at LFHS helped to take her mind off the game. “I had a class project to do,” she said. Season finales are always tough, especially after developing a terrific playing relationship with a super young squad. “Not only was I upset about giving up that goal,” Clark said. “But knowing that I wouldn’t be playing with these girls again was just as upsetting.” The Scouts had only three seniors on the roster: Clark, sweeper Dani Loeger and forward Gabby Perino. Clark also praised her protectors. LF’s defense was stout with Kendall Hoke, Sydney Johnston, Bailey Ehrens and Loeger. “They made things so much easier for me,” said the LF goalie. There’s plenty more soccer in Clark’s future. Next season, she plans to play goalie for the College of Wooster in Ohio. Notable: Five Scouts were first-team selections on the NSC all-star team: Dani Loeger, Lucy Edwards, Sydney Johnston, Carly Hoke and Bailey Ehrens. The allsectional selections were Edwards, Johnston and Loeger (honorable mention). The team scoring leaders were Carly Hoke (5 goals, 7 assists, 17 points), Jenny McKendry (6 goals, 2 assists, 14 points), Brooke Green (5 goals, 3 assists, 13 points), Courtney Ardell (5 goals, 3 assists, 13 points), Paige Bourne (3 goals, 7 assists, 13 points) and Gabby Perino (3 goals, 5 assists, 11 points). ■

Exceeding expectations

Roth turns into a money player for New Trier baseball team

New Trier High School second baseman Ernie Roth turns a double play in the second inning of the sectional semifinal game at Niles West.

photography by joel lerner

■ kevin reiterman He went into the season with no guarantees. No hype. “I think I had eight at-bats — all last year,” said New Trier High School middle infielder Ernie Roth. Thus, his expectations were modest. “I just wanted to win a starting job,” the senior said. So you can imagine his delight when —by team vote — he was named New Trier’s MVP prior to the playoffs. Roth was humbled to receive such high praise from his peers. “It’s great my teammates thought of me like that,” he said. “I was not expecting that at all.” But he was well deserving. As the season went along, his stock went up like a Roth

06/08 – 06/09/13

IRA in a good economy. “He was an absolute stud in the second half of the season,” said NT leadoff hitter Matt Blanchard. “He had some big hits and made some big plays in the field.” To his credit, Roth performed even better after receiving the team’s highest honor. He came up with game-deciding hits in the two regional games. There’s nothing better than that. “Getting a walk-off hit is one of the best things in baseball,” said Roth. “Being swarmed by teammates. It’s hard to describe how good that feels.” In the 4-3 semifinal victory over Leyden on May 24, Roth capped off a two-run rally in the bottom of the seventh. His single brought home Frank Nicholas. Then, in the final, a 10-9 victory over Niles West in 10 innings, Roth brought in what proved to be the gamewinner in the top of the 10th. “He’s definitely a clutch kid,” said Blanchard, a senior

center fielder. “His play in the regional was insane.” Roth also singled and scored in the semifinal round of the Niles West Sectional on May 29, when the Trevians dropped a 4-1 decision to Oak Park-River Forest, the reigning Class 4A champs. The Trevians (20-15-1) managed only two hits against right-hander Sam Cunningham. “He’s not their ace, but he’s good,” said Roth. “His curveball was real decent.” Roth opened the second inning with a base hit. He eventually scored from third, when junior shortstop Drew LaMotte reached on a fielder’s choice. New Trier’s other hit off Cunningham, an outside linebacker on the OPRF football team, was a double to leftcenter field by Blanchard. “I’m surprised that we only got two hits against him,” said Roth. “We hit a lot of balls hard — but they were right at people.” Roth, who hit fifth in the batting order against the Huskies, finished the season hitting .301 with a teamhigh 21 RBI and 17 runs scored. “He was one of our most consistent hitters,” said Trevians head coach Mike Napolean. “He takes a good hitting approach. He thinks up the middle and to the right side.” The veteran NT coach also knew he could count on Roth’s defense (only 4 errors in 31 games). “He makes plays, and he makes them look easy,” said Napolean. And, the coach added, “Ernie has a good knowledge of the game and good work ethic.” Sparked by the hitting of Roth, Blanchard (.276, 19 runs), Nicholas (.260, 16 RBI), Adam Kost (.288), Grant Klenovich (.317, 15 RBI), Matt McCaffrey (.312, 20 RBI) and Jack Cloud (.315) and the pitching of Kevin Douaire (5-3, 2.52 ERA), Drew Fischer (6-2, 2.63), Grant Stern (3-0, 2.10) and David Richman (3-0, 4 saves, 1.29), New Trier finished strong. The Trevians went 12-5 in the month of May. Winning 20 games and advancing to the Class 4A sectional was not a given this spring. “I’m just happy that we could prove some people wrong,” said Roth. “We had a lot of different guys step up.” Roth will continue playing this summer with the Academy Elite, coached by Phil Apostle. He’ll then head to Vanderbilt University in the fall and study economics. Notable: The Trevians placed four players on the all-conference team: Ernie Roth, Drew Fischer, Grant Klenovich and Kevin Douaire. Five players have been selected to play in the Northwest Suburban Tournament, a junior showcase. The list includes Logan Wible (.263, 12 RBI), Fischer, Klenovich, Nicholas and Richman. ■

‘Hunted’ Harriers claim another state title ■ kevin reiterman They had the so-called target on their backs. After winning a state championship last spring, the Lake Forest Harriers High School Rugby Club knew that it would be a tough go. “It’s not easy when you’re the hunted,” said head coach John Walker. But that didn’t stop the Harriers from repeating. Highlighted by Peter Passalino, Wes Siu, Matt Harmon, Jay Kim and Andrew Freeman, the Lake Forest squad overcame a 10-0 halftime deficit to win its second straight state title. This veteran squad, which features 15 seniors, defeated Fenwick 31-15 in the title game on May 27 in Lemont to go 3-0 in the Tier II state playoffs. They took down Downers Grove 35-24 in the semifinals after thumping St. Rita 29-7 in the quarterfinals. The turning point in the championship game came on a gamble. Starting the second half a man down and the momentum clearly in Fenwick’s favor, Walker and his assistant, Ed Giangiorgi, elected to have Passalino go for a 3-point penalty kick from 40 yards out. T he k ick sa i led th r ough the upr ight s , a nd the Ha r r iers were of f a nd r u n n i ng.

“That put us on the board,” said Walker, who also guided the Harriers to a state crown in 2012. “We kept it rolling after that.” The game eventually was tied 10-10 on Harmon’s try and Siu’s two-point conversion kick. It got better after that for the Harriers as Kim scored on an inside drive and Freeman added two more scores on long outside runs. In the semifinal win, the Harriers had to deal with a tough Downers Grove Renegades squad, which came into the action with an undefeated record. The Renegades had the upper hand, when they took a 24-21 advantage. But in the final three minutes of the match, Passalino rallied the Harriers by scoring two tries on long outside dashes. Siu added the two-point conversions to give Lake Forest its final 11-point margin. Passalino and Siu led the team in scoring. “Both of those guys are extremely talented rugby players,” said Walker, who guided his team to a 7-1 overall record. Passalino and Siu were well prepared for the season. Last summer, the duo toured the United Kingdom as members of the Illinois Tornado State Select team. “It always helps your game when you go up against international players like they did,” Walker said. “Rugby in Europe is well-established.” In addition to Passalino and Freeman, the other seniors on the squad included Lake Forest High School’s Richard Daniels, Johnny Frame, Chris Musacchio and

Jack Badenhausen. The team also featured two seniors from Loyola Academy (Wilson Veech, Jack Picchietti); four from Libertyville H.S. (Rankin Draa, Diego Rojas, Michael Mariani, Siu); and three from Lakes H.S. (Blake Parsons, Troy Crow, Direll Clark).

New Trier’s Murray, Weeks go out as winners ■ bill mclean

New Trier High School’s Katy Weeks breaks free during the state third-place game.

photography by joel lerner “It flew by faster — a lot faster — than I thought it would,” Murray said of her prep lax career, which including being a member of state runner-up squads as a freshman and junior. “Freshman year, I played with so many great players.” The daughter of Trevians assistant coach Kristen Murray, Kelsey Murray paced NT in goals, assists and groundballs this spring. She had entered super-sectional action with 78 goals, 53 assists and 34 groundballs. She wore out Blake School (Minn.) with an eight-goal, two-assist effort in a 12-11 NT win on April 27. “She’s a special player, so unselfish,” Collins said. “Kelsey does everything well in the sport, and she’s a leader. She makes good decisions on and off the field.”

New Trier’s most memorable win in 2013 was its 14-12 defeat of Montini on April 24 — after it had trailed the Lady Broncos 12-5 in the home contest. NT also beat Ohio power Sycamore HS 12-9 on May 11. Montini lost 16-5 to Loyola Academy in the state championship on May 31. It was the Ramblers’ fifth straight state title and eighth under coach John Dwyer. Montini, the program, is only six years old. “The sport of lacrosse is clearly growing,” said Kelsey Murray, who plans to teach the sport to youngsters this summer. “It’s great to see; it’s encouraging.” Notable: Murray and Weeks earned first-team IHSWLA all-state honors. McGuire and NT junior middie/attack Betsey Kvam made the second team, and Ball, Hemmer and McCain were honorable mention selectees. ■


Setbacks happen. Athletes, even the superlative ones, know that. New Trier High School senior attack Kelsey Murray brought up the subject after her last lacrosse game in Trevian threads last week. “It’s how you respond to a setback that says a lot about you and your team,” she said. Setback: Montini 17, New Trier 15, in an Illinois High School Women’s Lacrosse Association state semifinal on May 29. Response: New Trier 11, Hinsdale Central 5, in the game for third place two days later at Glenbrook South High School. “We were ready from the get-go,” New Trier coach Pete Collins said. “You could tell. We had momentum early and controlled the ball. And our defense stepped up. “I’m proud of the way we played after a tough loss.” Eight Trevians scored at least once, led by junior middie/attack Charlotte McGuire’s three goals. Senior middie Claire McCain tallied twice, and junior goalie Allison Fitzgerald finished with seven saves against the Red Devils (16-3). Hinsdale Central’s stifling face-guard defense against Murray limited the Stanford-bound star to a goal and an assist in Glenview. But it ended up bowing to New Trier’s impressive depth. Joanie Merriman, Katy Weeks, Alicia Retzinger, Grace Hemmer and Julie Ball each scored once for the Trevians (17-4-1).

For Krina & Ryan it’s fun to be in the running in Paris bar. All they ask is how you want your steak. They give you two-thirds of the steak at first and keep the other third warm. They have this famous sauce they put on top. On Saturday we did a Seine boat tour. We didn’t want to be on our feet that much the day before the race. You see the Louvre and Notre Dame. We went to a place Hemingway used to go and write a lot, Les Deux Magots. We had never experienced hot chocolate in France — it is like liquid molten hot chocolate, and they give you a bowl of fresh whipped cream. That night we had the carbo load. We wanted to find an Italian restaurant for pasta and went to the Giallo Oro by the Rodin Museum. Everyone spoke Italian. It was authentic and small. On Sunday the elite runners started at 8 or 8:30 a.m. We didn’t even need to report until 9:45. We had a leisurely start and ran the first mile together because we knew

“We ran along the Seine and had the Eiffel Tower in view. At mile 23 they served wine if you wanted a little boost for the last three miles.”

Krina and Ryan Huddlestun of Lake Forest ran the Paris Marathon for the first time this spring.

photography by joel lerner I opened a shoebox from Ryan during my 40th birthday in January. There was a note that said, “We’re going to Paris and running the marathon.” It was a surprise. We like running together. It combined something adventurous and Europe. We landed on a Friday morning in April. We stayed at the Traveler’s Club of Paris, at the Avenue des Champs-

Élysées where the start and finish are. There’s only 30 rooms for a fraction of the cost of hotels. After a quick lunch at a brasserie down the street we fell asleep and then attended the Paris Marathon Expo. That night we ate at Le Relais de Venise, one of the highlights of the trip. The only thing they serve is steak frites. The tables are shoulder to shoulder, and there’s no

we wouldn’t finish together. We ran along the Seine and had the Eiffel Tower in view. At mile 23 they served wine if you wanted a little boost for the last three miles. The French are so chic and well-dressed – the day after the marathon, I (Krina) am wearing running shoes. Sure enough, all these other people are also wearing running shoes. We went to the Louvre later that day and walked up the stairs backwards because neither of us could walk upstairs forward after the race. Krina and Ryan Huddlestun, as told to David Sweet
