No one wins this numbers game


hen one considers the most resonant events of the 20th century, one truth is unchangeable: a finite number of people were involved with them, and once those events ended, their numbers began to slowly dwindle toward zero. World War I veterans, for example, have vanished. Survivors of the Holocaust — the World War II genocide masterminded by Nazis, who exterminated millions of Jews, gypsies, the disabled and others — shrink every day. And that leaves places such as the Illinois Holocaust Museum facing a future challenge. More than 50 survivors work at the Skokie-based facility today — and to possess that living history is invaluable. But it won’t always be the case. One proposition is to train the children of the survivors to tell their parents’ stories later in the 21st century. Angelika Labno takes us inside the museum, most likely the last to ever be built with the input of those who witnessed the horrors. Like Holocaust survivors, veterans of World War II will not live forever. These days, Highland Park

we mean that literally. Because now that our coverlets, duvets, down, sheets and shams are 15-25% off, you can change your bedroom look for less.

veterans are working with the Pritzker Museum of Military History to record their histories with the hope that they will be utilized as educational tools by local schools. Of course, many who served never made it this far. They are buried in graves across the world. Monday is Memorial Day, when we honor their supreme sacrifice. chicago None of us on the North Shore would have the 773 404 2020 lives we enjoy today without them. Innumerable ceremonies will drape our towns this weekend and on Monday. Given that students and workers alike have all of that time off, please spend 30 minutes attending a ceremony with our veterans — who 5.14 BSM NSW May sale.indd 1 work hard to organize these remembrances — to revere those soldiers, sailors, pilots and others who have died for these United States. Enjoy the weekend.

Living history

Holocaust survivors help museum flourish — but it must prepare for when they are gone

Illinois Holocaust Museum. photography

by david b. seide.

■ by angelika labno Students from Loyola Academy crowd inside an auditorium at the Illinois Holocaust Museum, listening to an elderly man reflect on his past. He survived World War II because his parents passed him off to live as one of the “hidden children” — Jewish youngsters who were smuggled out of their homes and transported to safe havens — while his parents were carted to a death camp. All these decades later, Joe Koek of Northbrook still wishes he had turned around once to wave goodbye as he was led away from their home. Hearing a firsthand account from a Holocaust survivor is a living piece of history still available to visitors of the museum in Skokie, but the opportunity is drifting away. The museum fights to keep the memories from fading with its last survivors. Says the museum’s new CEO, Susan Abrams, “At this moment in time, with the survivors, I’d like everyone to realize what a jewel the museum is.” Cognizant of the challenges, the museum’s administration continues to adapt its offerings and find ways to keep the Holocaust relevant for years to come, as up to 600 schoolchildren pass through the museum doors every day. While visitors can still enjoy a presentation from one of 57 survivors who work there, the museum has to prepare for the years to come. One proposition is to train the children

of the survivors to tell their parents’ stories. “This is likely the last major Holocaust museum to be built with the imprint of survivors,” says Noreen Brand, director of training and public programs. “Everything is studied through the lens of the individual — this is about the power of one.” Holocaust survivor Walter Reed, who resides in Wilmette, became involved with the museum not only to tell his story but to compensate for the memory of many other families less fortunate than he. “I hope the public understands that human beings have forever been unkind to each other,” says Reed, who lived in a refugee center in Belgium before fleeing to southern France when the Germans invaded in 1940, “and we all need a daily reminder that we have in us the capability of doing good and helping other people.” The museum — which now draws about 120,000 visitors a year — has come a long way from its beginnings in a home basement. When a neo-Nazi group planned to march through Skokie in 1977, it empowered local Holocaust survivors to come together and effect change in the area, thus fueling the formation of the Holocaust Memorial Foundation of Illinois. In 1990, the Foundation’s mandate for Holocaust education was approved, making Illinois the first state in the country to require such teachings in all public schools. After a few years of being housed in a local storefront, the

museum officially opened its doors on April 19, 2009 with Elie Wiesel and Bill Clinton in attendance. The 65,000-square-foot space was designed by Stanley Tigerman in an architectural style called brutalism, incorporating symbolism and a prominent theme of darkness to light. Visitors are thrown off-guard as they enter through the “dark” side, where the tight, jagged walls reinforce the terrors of the time period. The museum’s prized artifact — a 1920s German railcar that visitors can step into — sits in the cleave that divides the two wings of the building. Passing into the second wing, the space becomes airy with natural light and softer wall edges. The second floor contains contemplative spaces and six galleries of fine art dedicated to various genocidal periods. “The exhibits are really complementary,” says Abrams. “Every time I go through it, I learn and see different things.” One misconception the museum strives to break is that the museum’s mission is a Jewish one. Although an estimated six million Jews perished during the Holocaust, another six million disabled, homosexual, Polish political prisoners and more were victimized as well. Moreover, the museum commemorates all genocides and atrocities, including the Soviet Gulag, Rwanda and slavery, in its Legacy of Absence Gallery. “The museum is an uplifting place that engages visitors to effect change,” says Brand. “This is really a human rights institution with a call to action.” ■

love & marriage Walks, canoeing keep marriages — and health — intact Get-togethers with old friends — those who’ve stuck by you since your high school days, for example, and eagerly welcomed your spouse into the group — are always a pleasure. But conversation invariably turns to those friends are not with you. Such was the case at a recent Saturday evening cocktail party. “I don’t think I’ve seen that guy since Lauren’s wedding at Ryerson Woods,” one of the gentlemen at the party recalled, speaking of the Lake County Forest Preserve property filled with rare plants, wildlife and trails. The wedding was a disconnect for me, as I had always associated the area with elementary school outdoor education. It certainly carried no romantic connotation prior to Lauren’s spectacular wedding. “I know that place. Chris took me on a romantic hike there,” recalled another cocktail party guest who had not attended the wedding of which we spoke. The idea that my adult friends are tromping around the fields and trails I explored as an energetic child reminded me of an article I’d recently found in USA Today concerning the health habits of married people. A study of more than 3.5 million Americans revealed that married people are less likely than single, divorced and widowed people to suffer any kind of heart or blood vessel problem — regardless of age, gender, or other risk factors for heart disease (diabetes, high cholesterol, and the like). A physician associated with the study suggested that married people have spouses to encourage better health habits and personal responsibility. (I think he was sugar-coating the nagging of which so many wives are accused.) It’s a good thing, too, because an unrelated study from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis found that serious illness raises the risk of divorce for older married couples when it’s the wife who gets sick. The study considered 2,700 older married couples, of which one-third divorced between 1992 and 2010. In almost half of the divorces, the wife was stricken by cancer, heart

problems, lung disease or stroke. The study couldn’t identify why the woman’s illness was more likely than the man’s to lead to divorce, but it is assumed that gender roles affect marital quality. Women typically act as caretakers, and forcing men into the role causes extra strain on marriages already stressed by illness and healthcare costs. Researchers acknowledge that the study makes men seem like jerks, walking away when life gets tough. But they were clear that the study did not record which spouse initiated the divorces — and thus they could not place blame on either spouse. So it’s probably a good thing that my friends found romance in Ryerson Woods, the way so many other couples enjoy wandering around the Chicago Botanic Garden, crosscountry skiing or canoeing the Skokie Lagoons in Winnetka. At my house, the recent arrival of spring has allowed us to put on our walking shoes and revisit our well-worn, mile-long path to the nearest coffee shop. It’s my favorite way to start the weekend — and that was before I knew my marriage depended on it. The North Shore is full of outdoor spaces that make for great dates.

She keeps Dickinson Hall young at heart ■ by katie rose mceneely

Marla Schachtel is the manager at Dickinson Hall in Lake Forest. Reading: I just finished reading “A Happy Marriage” by Rafael Eglesias. I was fortunate for the second year in a row to be part of a partnership with Ragdale and Lake Forest Library, selecting a book to read for the community. It’s a true story about a writer and his relationship with his wife, who is dying of cancer. Listening: I am pretty eclectic when it comes to music. A lot depends on my mood, but in the last six months or so I’ve gotten Sirius radio in the car. I tend to go toward the ‘60s, but I can enjoy everything from country to classical. Watching: I have been very intrigued by “House of Cards” and “Downton Abbey.” We’re also watching “True Detective.” Matthew McConnaghy is turning out to be an amazing actor. Following: I just got involved in One of A Kind Artists group. I’m staying current and working on projects that are unique. I’m entering into some new areas of creativity. When I have a little bit of leisure time, that’s what I’ve been pursuing. I make my own greeting cards. We just made something called “lace lights” — you start out with a balloon covered in cheesecloth and cover it with lace. Now I have a bowl full, with lights in them. It’s really quite beautiful. Activity: Dickinson Hall is a destination in Lake Forest for active adults over the age of 50. I’m involved primarily in growing awareness, because we offer an array

of services for the community, just so that people know we’re here. I’m in supervision of everything, so I work with the staff and members and try to enhance what we offer. One of the more exciting things in addition to our standard fare is we’re beginning a new co-education performing group. The expectation is they’ll perform at other community events — our biggest challenge is I want to give the new participants input on what they call themselves. Right now we have about 20 people, but there’s room for more. One of the biggest things I’m working on is marketing and rebranding, looking for ways to expand our awareness. We continuously offer cultural opportunities. In particular over the past couple years we’ve been focusing on various art programs. I like bringing in unique talent. Outside of work, I stay very active physically. I’ve been practicing yoga for about 14 years. My favorite place to do it in summer is on the Glencoe Beach, a sunrise class. Sometimes I do it on my own, sometimes at the rec center in Highland Park, where I live. I’ve also been spinning for about six years — I find it hugely satisfying. One of my most favorite walking destinations is the Botanic Garden. Eating: I try to eat really healthy all day long, so I can treat myself, virtually every night, to a glass of red wine and a piece of dark chocolate. It’s my reward for all the healthy things I do. What is your favorite mistake? The first thing that comes to mind is, after college, I went to Europe alone. I was planning my itinerary for six weeks

of travel — but after three weeks of meeting a lot of people with open-ended tickets, there was really no reason to go back to the U.S. quickly. Long story short, I stayed there for 10 months. It was kind of the peak

experience of my lifetime. It took me from England to all the way through France, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, Israel, and back up to Scotland before I came home. It was a unique and amazing trip. ■

Food trucks will add to spectators’ hunger for race ■ by angelika labno

The Glencoe Grand Prix, slated for May 31, will be more than just a bike race. The annual event will tap into the food truck trend. “It’s going to create its own draw to the race,” said Brian Troglia, who will be representing his restaurant Endgrain with a truck. Troglia — an attorney who helped develop an ordinance allowing owners to prepare and cook food on trucks in Chicago — helped coordinate the 13 food trucks that will offer pancakes, gourmet cheese sandwiches, “doughscuits” and more. “Everyone is very curious about food trucks, because it’s not something that a lot of people in the suburbs have experienced,” said Winnetka resident Jami Steinberg, who recently opened the doors of her food truck “Grilled Chasers” with husband Gary. Their bird-emblazoned truck will dish out grilled chicken wings, sliders and skewers accompanied by sides of kale cabbage coleslaw and mango salsa. Knouse, president of the Glencoe Educational Foundation (GEF), conceptualized the Grand Prix eight years ago as a fundraiser. An avid cyclist, he envisioned the quaint town as the perfect host for such an event. “It’s taken a life of its own,” said Knouse, describing the race’s evolution over the years, including the popular high noon kid races and this year’s new offering for local hand cyclists. Now the major fundraiser of the GEF, the event supports the group’s mission of enhancing technology within the Glencoe school system, including laptops and SMARTboards in the classroom. Over the years, the foundation has recognized needs of schools outside the district and has funded various programs and equipment. The Grand Prix is the seventh event in the 2014 USA CRITS Championship Series and the National Criterium Calendar, drawing professional racers from around the country and even Australia and New Zealand. The Illinois Bone & Joint Institute, the 2014 title sponsor, will provide first-aid services to participants. Former racer Kenny Labbe will be one of the announcers of the pro race, which

takes place in the evening. The event is followed by a block party, sponsored by Chase, with live music from 1980s cover band 16 Candles and 312 beer from Goose Island. Out-of-town pro racers are integrated into the community through host housing and by speaking to students in the schools. “There’s nothing like watching a bike speed past you at 30 miles per hour,” said Knouse, “but this is also community event in so many respects.”

Special Exhibition

This exhibition of nearly 300 paintings from Life? or Theater? offers a rare opportunity to experience Salomon’s masterpiece – a coming-of-age story set amidst Nazi oppression.

Wilmette resident Daniel Rudrud has cycled in races around the country for 15 years, and he considers Glencoe’s race among the best for three reasons: family, philanthropy and operational excellence. “It’s the most efficient race I’ve ever been to, from registration to picking up your sticker to the timing of the event,” he said, giving credit to the late Jay Mirasol for setting the foundation of the race operations. “It’s supported so well by the community, and it’s a pathway to give back.” ■

5/24 – 5/25/14





A rare mix: businessman, diplomat and philanthropist Bob Stuart’s active life started during his boyhood summers at his family’s ranch in Wyoming. “We climbed together, fished together, rode horses together,” recalled Margie Hart, his younger sister. “He was out there riding a horse just last year (at Bob Stuart photography 97) with some help. courtesy of the stuart “He was tons of fun. He family was good man, a highly successful businessman. But he was a brother to me, not a businessman. We had a wonderful relationship.” Stuart — a former chief executive officer of Quaker Oats, U.S. ambassador to Norway and a founder of America First with a future U.S. president, among other accomplishments — passed away earlier this month. The North Shore resident was 98. In his 2006 autobiography, “Making a Difference: Memoirs of a Lucky Man,” Stuart described his life as “regret-free” and added, “My life has been full and — I hope — meaningful.” Robert D. Stuart, Jr. was born in 1916 in Hubbard Woods and grew up in Lake Forest. His mother, Harriet McClure Stuart, was the daughter of James Gore King McClure, a Presbyterian minister who also served as the president of Lake Forest College. Both Rev. McClure and his parents were powerful role models, impressing upon young Stuart and his three sisters — Anne, Margaret and Harriet — the importance of public service. During his early teenage years at Los Alamos Ranch Camp in New Mexico, he earned Scout badges — but fell just short of becoming an Eagle Scout, one of the few disappointments in his life. “I have kicked myself ever since for not going for those last five badges,” he said. In his 20s, his arrival on the national stage occurred just before World War II. In 1940, along with Gerald Ford, Sargent Shriver and Potter Stewart, Stuart helped to found the nonpartisan America First Committee to oppose United States intervention in World War II. At one point, more than 800,000 people had signed up with the group. But it disbanded four days after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941. A major during World War II who was discharged in 1946, Stuart understood the horrors millions faced during the conflict he had once hoped the country could avoid. “In all the sentimental fog of years afterward, we forget the everyday human cost of war,” he wrote. “It kills, it empties treasuries, it tramples liberties, but it also separates families, often for years at a time. Those it does not kill, it makes very lonesome.” Upon graduation from Yale University in 1946 with a degree in law (he also graduated from Princeton with a bachelor’s degree in the 1930s), he joined the Quaker Oats Co., which was co-founded by his grandfather Robert Stuart and led at the time by his father R. Douglas Stuart and uncle John Stuart. He spent 38 years at Quaker, the last 15 as chief executive, and during his tenure pushed to diversify the company beyond oatmeal and cereal. Two themes animated his tenure: a belief in the power of strong brands and the certainty that corporations like Quaker had a duty both to their shareholders and to the communities in which they lived and operated. From the time he became president in 1962 to his stepping down in 1984 to join the diplomatic corps, sales grew from $365 million to more than $3 billion. As President Ronald Regan’s ambassador to Norway from 1984 to 1989 (two other North Shore residents, John Louis of Winnetka and Paul Robinson of Lake Bluff, were also tapped as ambassadors during Reagan’s tenure), Stuart followed in the tradition of his father, who was the American ambassador to Canada in the mid-1950s. The younger Stuart served

in the waning years of the Cold War, when Norway’s location north of the Barents Sea and its proximity to the former Soviet Union was of great strategic relevance both to the United States and to NATO. In the face of considerable skepticism from Norwegians, Stuart promoted President Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative, more familiarly known as “Star Wars,” earning the respect of the diplomatic and political community even as they disagreed with the U.S. policy he was promoting. Stuart was a longtime Republican who supported the party and its leadership, although he wrote that were it not for World War II, he might instead have chosen to be a New Deal Democrat. As he did at Quaker, he started his political career at the most basic level — in this case, as an elected Republican precinct committeeman in Lake County. Stuart said his biggest political mistake was to turn down Nancy Reagan’s request to help her husband be elected President. He was close to both Reagans and his support would have been a natural. Instead, he loyally remained committed to candidate John Connolly, who he had agreed to support before Nancy Reagan called him. As have others in the family, Stuart championed the physical development of Lake Forest College. In 2005, he donated money to renovate the student commons area of the Mohr Student Center to provide additional space for meetings and events. Of the 750 copies of Stuart’s memoirs Making a Difference, one copy is in the college library. Stuart was also a strong advocate of the Gorton Community Center. In 2009, when the family was honored for its unwavering support, he spoke in the Stuart Community Room. “Our mother taught us that Lake Forest needed a place, beyond our schools, churches and clubs, where all residents could come together to share the richness of life,” he said. “When Gorton Community Center began, we recognized that this was the place of our mother’s vision, and we have always supported Gorton.” Brenda Dick, executive director at Gorton Community Center, was proud of Stuart’s role at the non-profit and of his life overall. “What an exceptional man. Bob Stuart was a leader. He didn’t wait for good news. He made it,” she said. “Being seated next to Bob (at a dinner) was a winning spot. With his broad interests and natural curiosity, you knew you had better be up on the world.” Aside from his fellow America First founders — who all became leaders in the country — Stuart was engaged with a number of movers and shakers throughout his life. After a meeting with Henry Ford in Michigan, Stuart and aviator Charles Lindbergh flew home during a storm. During the trip, Lindbergh taught Stuart how to fly their plane. “The episode remains one of the happiest moments of my life,” he wrote. When Stuart traveled to Washington, D.C. to receive his Foreign Service Institute training for his post as Ambassador to Norway, his instructor was a former actress Quaker Oats previously had hired to help advertise their oats: Ambassador Shirley Temple Black. Stuart always took the long view and had the knack for seeing opportunities where others didn’t — particularly in real estate. He was enormously proud last fall when Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest enjoyed the national stage, hosting its first professional golf tournament, the BMW Championship, on land that he and his partners had acquired in the late 1950s. Stuart is survived by his wife Lillan, sister Margaret, his son James M. Stuart and wife Dianne, daughter Marian S. Pillsbury, son Alexander D. Stuart and wife Robin, daughter-in-law Nancy M. Stuart, eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren and numerous Norwegian step-children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He adored them all, on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

Scientist gets her due with larger-than-life sculpture ■ by sheryl devore During her career, Highland Park resident Julie Rothblatt Amrany has been commissioned to create sculptures of wellknown personalities — including Chicago sports legends Michael Jordan, Stan Mikita, Scottie Pippen and Harry Caray. Now she has created a larger-than-life sculpture of Rosalind Franklin, the namesake of the 102-year-old medical school in North Chicago and a female scientist who died before her work could properly be praised. “It was an honor to be able to sculpt a female who was a renowned scientist,” said Amrany, adding that 95 percent of the commissions she and her husband, Omri Amrany, receive at their Fort Sheridan studio are sculptures of men. “Unfortunately, women don’t get recognized in terms of icons for the young women to look up to. This was really a great opportunity to do something like that.” The bronze sculpture was commissioned by the Rosalind Franklin University of School and Medicine. It will be unveiled Thursday, May 29 at a private showing and then available for the public to view outdoors on the west side of campus. A few years ago, Amrany’s agent, Kathleen Van Ella, introduced her to the university’s president and CEO, Michael Welch, about creating the sculpture. The university, which celebrated its centennial in 2012, is the first medical institution in the United States to recognize a female scientist through an honorary namesake. “Dr. Franklin embodies our university’s motto, ‘Life in Discovery,’ ” said Welch.

“Her passion for learning and commitment to the highest standards in scientific research make her a wonderful role model for our students, researchers, faculty and all aspiring scientists throughout the world.” Amrany said she became engaged in learning about the drama that surrounded Franklin, who died at the age of 37 before being recognized for her work with DNA. “There’s always research involved and if you can meet with the person who’s still living, that’s the best,” Amrany said about her commissioned sculpture work. “When you meet that person, there’s something that happens intuitively,” which helps her create the facial expression on the sculpture, she said. “When you can’t meet the person, you do lots of research from books. Rosalind Franklin was pretty strong- minded as a young woman and knew she wanted to study science and molecular biology.” Born in 1920 — the year women received Julie Rothblatt Amrany stands in her studio among a variety of sculptures. photography by the right to vote — Franklin studied at a private school in London and earned her joel lerner. doctoral degree in physical chemistry in 1945 from Cambridge University. data he needed to finish the model. project.” Then she got sick with cancer and died After school, Franklin began working in Amrany said she’s pleased that young a laboratory in England where she spent before her work could be recognized, men and women studying at the university hours obtaining a photograph through an Amrany said. will be able to view the sculpture on campus.

The FIsCal FundamenTals OF InsurInG YOur hOme

SUNDAY, JUNE 8, 2014


Come cycle with us!




Financially speaking, there are a few steps that all prospective homeowners should take to ensure the smoothness of their path from home search to successful closing. For prospective home buyers, insuring your home is especially crucial to a stress-free transaction. With the help of a certified, skilled Realtor®, these steps will be easily undertaken and deliver the keys to your dream home! A sensible approach to buying a home will include investigating the home insurance trends of the desired area in order to understand any hidden costs associated with a property. For any purchase of real estate, it is absolutely vital for the prospective homeowner to have a firm, realistic understanding of what they’re getting themselves into. In many cases, homeowners in specific regions may be legally required to purchase additional insurance policies, such as general hazard policies, storm insurance, flood policies or wind policies. Additionally, homeowners of all property types may encounter the need for insurance coverage that protects against costly or complicated needs, which range from hazard liability to average home maintenance. Insuring your home is a necessary step to happy home ownership, protecting both the home owner and the lender as well. Before you close on any home, make sure that you and your Realtor® have taken the time to invest in an insurance policy that is tailor-made to fit the needs of your new home for years to come!

20 | lifestyle & arts Opening yoga studio is worth the weight for Biggest Loser winner ■ by angelika labno Backstage at “The Biggest Loser” finale, no designer dress could impress Dannielle “Danni” Allen. The Lake County native fought to keep the body-hugging, red dress — which showcased her toned arms and shapely legs — that she had bought for the occasion. She won that battle. Using singer Pink as inspiration, she allowed her long brown hair to be chopped off, dyed blonde by the celebrity stylist Ken Paves, and teased into a faux hawk. “I told them I wanted to look like a badass because I went through this feeling like a badass,” Allen remarked, grinning defiantly. “On stage, I felt like I already won, like, ‘Look at this size 4 dress that I’m rocking!’ ” As she stood on the scale for the last time, Allen swept the competition in 2013 with a 121-pound weight loss and set a record for gaining the most muscle in the history of the NBC show, which launched in the 1990s. In the ensuing months, she used her prize money to pay off her student loans, move to Evanston and open up a yoga studio on Central Avenue, suitably named One2One. The 27-year-old looks every bit of a modern-day yogi in her studio, donning a fitted blue Lulu Lemon zip-up, black yoga pants, and bare feet adorned with a row of colorful toenails. The blonde faux hawk has grown out and dyed back to its natural brown state. Housed on the second floor of the pink Rose’s Bakery building, the studio is flooded with natural lights and Zen decor. There is just one thing missing: a mirror. “It’s not about what it looks like; it’s what it feels like,” said Allen, who believes in feeling the body’s way through the various poses rather than emulating someone else. “Yoga is an expression of yourself, and mirrors don’t reflect who you are.” As Allen worked out eight hours a day, yoga became essential in easing her soreness, tension and headaches. In the last weeks leading up to the finale — when she could barely walk — Allen took yoga nearly every day. On her decision to open her own studio, Allen reflected, “I had been given this opportunity that was once in a lifetime, so I wanted to pay it forward. What hit the nail on the head, for me, was yoga.” Sitting with both legs perched atop her chair, occasionally breaking into a yoga pose, Allen describes the 200 hours of training and courses such as anatomy and physiology needed to complete her certification program. A yoga instructor is just one of the many exertions in fitness that Allen enjoys. She recently added Chicago Marathon finalist to the list, clocking in at four hours and nine min-

utes and ranking in the top five percent of female runners. Years ago, Allen would not have imagined running even one mile. As a teenager, she played school sports, yet she weighed more than 200 pounds by age 16. Over the years, the pounds accumulated until she hit about 250 by 26. Her wake-up call to change was a personal — and almost tragic — one. Two years ago, her father had a health scare scare and was not expected to survive. After a miraculous turnaround, the family spent his 50th birthday in the hospital. “I had an internal look at myself and said, ‘I want to live to 100; I don’t want to get cut short,’ ” said Allen. “I knew I needed to change.” A few months later, Allen accompanied a friend to a Biggest Loser audition outside of Chicago, holding a picture of her dad’s birthday in the hospital. The eight-hour wait turned out to be fruitful, as Allen received a phone call later that night. “I didn’t think I was big enough,” she laughed, Danni Allen reminiscing. “Your brain can manipulate you so you function a certain way. On a resume, I looked great: friends, a great job, family who supported me.” She was willing to put herself through anything to

change. When situations got really tough, Allen would refer to the Muhammad Ali quote in her room: “I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’ ” Letters from home and fellow contestants supported her through the grueling journey, which was as mentally demanding as it was physically. Allen gained more than just a new body on the show. Her ability to push boundaries has carried over into everyday life. Exposure on national television also taught her to not take herself so seriously. She recounts falling flat on her face on the set of Windy City Live. The “old” Danni would have shut down and cried, but the confident gal rolled with it, joking, “I got an extra workout getting up.” The healthy brunette now enjoys activities that her weight once restricted, like riding a horse, but she is careful not to live too far into the future. She is enjoying the process of running a new business and becoming a teacher. Her motives are driven by the “pay it forward” mantra, and she regularly donates the proceeds from yoga classes to rotating charities, such as this month’s recipient, Lynn illustration by barry blitt S a g e B r e a s t Cancer. CoolSculpting is the non-surgical body contouring treatment t “If this [business] goes down because I gave too much, eliminates fat from your body.

Surf’s up

California cool Christian pumped up for final postseason run

Quite a racket: Lake Forest High School’s Scott Christian smacks a backhand volley during the Deerfield Invite. The senior teamed with Connor O’Kelly to win No. 1 doubles at the NSC meet on May 17. photography by joel lerner

■ by bill mclean Scott Christian almost does not belong in the Midwest. The Lake Forest High School senior tennis player has a combination of George Clooney’s cool and Matthew McConaughey’s good-guy persona going for him. Nobody would be surprised if the laid-back blond — one of the best doubles players in the state for the second year in a row — landed a starring role in a surfing movie. It’s as if an earthquake in California catapulted Christian off a red carpet and he landed on a green tennis court near Lake Michigan. “I have never surfed,” the 6-foot-3, 180-pound tri-captain says. “But maybe I’ll try it someday. It looks like it would be fun, relaxing.” Look for Christian and his doubles partner, classmate Connor O’Kelly, to enjoy a deep run at the state tennis tournament May 29-31. The pair topped Stevenson’s Colin Harvey/Andrew Komarov 6-4, 6-4 for the No. 1 doubles championship at the North Suburban Conference Tournament at the Vernon Hills Athletic Complex on May 17. Harvey/Komarov finished third at state last spring — after edging Christian/John Zordani (LFHS, ’13) 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-4 in a state quarterfinal. (Christian/Zordani ended up in fifth place, the best state finish by a Scouts tandem since Matt Bruch/Alex Lambropoulus won their title in 2004.) “Connor has been great,” says Christian, who helped the Scouts place second at state last spring and third at state in 2012, when he reached the singles consolation quarterfinals with a 5-2 record. “He keeps me smiling with that contagious smile of his, and we know how to pump each other up. A key in doubles is staying positive. “We do that.” Very few doubles players in Illinois match Christian’s physicality in matches. He booms his first serves, high

kicks his second serves and relies on his hockey-goaltenderquick hands at the net. If a return of an O’Kelly serve is only slightly off, Christian is usually right where he should be, ready to finish with either an angled volley or a loud, court-denting overhead smash. “Scott is such a good athlete, very focused, and he’s not afraid to take chances,” Scouts coach Corky Leighton says. “He makes things happen. I’ve told him, ‘Don’t think out there; go with your feel.’ Scott owns some very good tennis instincts.” Christian’s mind has been in a good place since the Marquette University recruit struck a ball in the first game of his first match this spring. The fourth-year varsity netter is savoring the time he gets to represent his school on tennis courts. “I’m soaking it all in,” Christian says. “I’ve loved playing high school tennis. Here’s the thing: It’s been a relaxing season for me. My thinking is, ‘Why stress out on the court?’ This is my senior year; I’m going to enjoy it until the end.” Christian is as friendly off the court as he is effective on it. For years Lake Forest’s archrival in the NSC has been Stevenson. But that hasn’t stopped Christian from warmly acknowledging Stevenson coach Tom Stanhope whenever the two cross paths during the season. “He’s a nice guy, a guy who always says hi,” Stanhope says. “He’s been fun to watch. Scott is pretty tenacious and fit, with very good returns. “I remember how well he played at state against [former Patriots singles star Jeremy] Bush,” he adds, alluding to Bush’s three-set victory in the Round of 16 at the state meet two years ago. “Scott is smart and mentally strong — he always seems to be in that middle zone … never too excited, never down.” But Christian’s hands draw the most applause from coaches. In high-level doubles matches that average only between three and four shots per point, the player with the quickest mitts is usually one of the players smiling during

the post-match handshake. “Great, great hands,” Scouts assistant coach Scott Gilbert says. “Anything near him at the net, he eats up. Scott is incredibly talented, as well as a player who knows how to use the entire court really well. But he’s also dedicated and a hard worker. “A great guy, too,” he adds. “Everybody likes him and his laid-back nature.” When he’s not punishing a tennis ball with racket strings, Christian likes to strum the strings of an acoustic or electric guitar at home. Young tennis players will get to hear Christian perform this summer — as an instructor at Onwentsia Club in Lake Forest. “You need balance,” Christian says of what he considers the key to a worthwhile tennis session with kids. “You want them to run, but not too much. You want to push them, but you also want to make sure they’re having fun.” Notable: LFHS senior Peter Tarwid (No. 1 singles) and two other Scouts doubles team joined Christian/O’Kelly as flight champions at last weekend’s NSC Meet, as the Scouts easily topped the team standings with 38 points. Tarwid — who finished sixth in singles at state the past two seasons — escaped with a three-plus-hour defeat (3-6, 7-5, 6-4) of Libertyville’s Ben VanDixhorn in the No. 1 final. Greg Frauenheim/Jordan O’Kelly (No. 2) and Ben Kasbeer/Parker Marsh (No. 3) won doubles titles, while LF junior Brice Polender took runner-up honors at No. 2 singles. … LFHS vies for state berths at the Warren Sectional in Gurnee May 23-24. … Zordani, a freshman on the University of Wisconsin men’s tennis team, was a Big Ten Sportsmanship Award recipient at the Big Ten Tournament banquet on April 25. He went 6-7 overall in singles. Many current Scouts netters watched Zordani play No. 4 singles and No. 2 doubles when Wisconsin faced host Northwestern University on April 18. NU won 7-0. ■

‘Chase’ what matters

Silverman finds his place among NT’s elite distance runners ■ by kevin reiterman

Notable: Cotsirilos, who will run next year at CalPolytechnic State, ran with plenty of purpose at the conference meet. He never let up in winning the 1600 in Here’s a scary thought — for the opposition. Check this out. New Trier High School’s girls track team sent two relays to this weekend’s Class 3A state track and field meet in Charleston — and six of the eight are sophomores. The other two? Freshmen. “We put our best kids out there,” said NT head coach Bob Spagnoli. “Whether they’re a senior, junior, sophomore or freshman makes no difference to us. We test our kids all year — we compete against a very strong schedule — and try to put the best product on the track. It’s a credit to our kids that they know how to compete and enjoy competing.” The 4x100 quarter boosts four sophomores: Maddie Murray, Madeline O’Dwyer, Nicole Lamagno and Rose

4:15.26, which is considerable faster than his 2013 statemeet time of 4:18.86. He won the race by seven seconds. “I wanted to see how hard I could push myself,” said Cotsirilos. “He had one of his best practices ever on Tuesday (May 13),” Wisner said. “It looked like he was floating out there. I knew that he would do something special tonight.” … Trapp, who will run at Connecticut College, was another distance standout for the Trevians, who scored 106 ½ points to finish third behind Niles West (151) and Evanston (145). The senior put up a good fight against Evanston sensation Carl Klamm in the 800 meters. He ran a 1:57.70. Klamm checked in with a 1:54.95. “He’s such a fiery guy on the track,” said Wisner. … Senior Dylan Gunther held his own against the league speedsters, taking third in the 400 (50.83), fourth in the 200 (22.93) and fifth in the 100 (11.43). Daniel Morton earned runner-up honors in the pole vault (12-0), while the Trevians took first in the 4x800 relay and second in the 4x400 relay. ■

Young talent steps up at sectional ■ by jeff davis

You won’t catch Chase Silverman retracing his steps. He’s a forward-thinking distance runner, who doesn’t dwell on negatives. “Chase doesn’t get too high or too low,” said New Trier High School distance coach David Wisner. “He’s able to keep stress at a manageable level. “If he has a bad race, he can shake it off pretty quickly, which is very good for a distance runner,” the coach added. “He’s real good at moving on.” Which goes a long way in explaining Silverman’s terrific senior season. On April 25, at the Bob Cohoon Invite at Downers Grove High School, Silverman ran the race of his life. Pitted against a couple of elites in DGN’s Zach Smith and Ryan Clevenger (the respective third- and seventh-place finishers in Class 3A at the 2013 state cross country meet in Peoria), he rushed to the finish line in a second-place time of 9:09.10, behind Smith’s 9:07.1. Nine … oh … nine … point one … My … oh … my. With that clocking, the slender, 5-foot-10 Glencoe resident, who will run and study business at Cornell University in New York, has the third best 3200-meter time in school history behind Leland Later (8:55) and Tommy King (9:05). “I’d say that’s pretty good company,” said Wisner. Later, who won the state cross country title in 2011, is now running at the University of California-Berkeley. King, a bronze medalist in the 1600 meters at the 2011 state track meet, is a distance runner at Illinois. The 9:09 did wonders for Silverman’s confidence. It was his statement race. “It showed me how far I’ve come,” said Silverman, who completed a tough double (2nd in the 1600, 4:22.13) at the Cohoon Invite “And that I can race with the best. Silverman certainly looked like a distance ace on May 16 at the CSL South meet at Evanston High School. He broke out on top early and cruised the eight laps in 9:20.68. He beat Maine South’s Jack Carpenter by more than eight seconds. Glenbrook South star David O’Gara took fourth after getting passed by New Trier junior Josh Rosenkranz (9:30.60) during the final lap. “Chase ran a comfortable 9:20,” said Wisner. “He ran 70-second quarters, which was the game plan.” He never trailed in the race. “Jack and David let me do the work,” Silverman added. The Trevians were scheduled to compete in the Loyola Academy Sectional on May 22. And the plan, according to Wisner, was to put Silverman in the 1600 meters and 4x800 relay with Connor Trapp, Peter Cotsirilos and Ted Oh. The state meet will be held in Charleston on May 30-31.


Gorski. They earned a state berth by clocking a secondplace time of 49.36 at the Niles West Sectional on May 15. Meanwhile, leadoff leg Oona Jung-Beeman and anchor Kelli Schmidt — a pair of sophomores — teamed up with freshmen Molly Schmidt and Katie Glew to advance to state by running 13 seconds faster than they had all year to place second in 9:27.32, just missing a school record. Top veterans also sparkled as NT (96 points) placed second behind Evanston (124). Junior Mimi Smith won the 3200 (10:52.10) and took second in the 1600 run (5:02.57). “Mimi Smith is one of the greatest competitors you’d ever want to meet,” Spagnoli said. “She’s a tremendous athlete, and nothing rattles her.” Junior Nicole Karabas cleared 10 feet to win the sectional pole vault, while senior Kaitlin Frei and sophomore Tara Smith advanced in the 3200 (11:17.7) and 400 (59.62), respectively. Murray also qualified in the long jump (2nd, 16-2). ■

Imagine skating in tandem with 14 others. One misstep could bring the whole team down. Sandra Shaw participates in synchronized skating, an increasingly popular discipline of figure skating composed of several skaters — about 15 on Shaw’s team — who move as one unit on the ice. The choreographed formations, done at high speeds, require top-notch precision and timing. In March, Shaw’s team ranked top 10 in the nation at the U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships, held in Colorado Springs, Colo. “The best feeling is when we’re standing in the kiss-and-cry area and we’re waiting for our scores, knowing we performed the best we could,” said Shaw, a freshman at Lake Forest Academy. “The feeling after that, all that we’ve accomplished as a team, it’s really amazing.”

With Kevin Reiterman & Bill McLean Courtside Boys Tennis

Highland Park: The Giants captured the Central Suburban League North Tournament title at Niles North on May 17, netting four of the seven flight championships and earning runner-up honors in the other three. Max Gordon and David Aizenberg notched significant three-set wins in their final two matches at No. 1 doubles, downing pairs from Deerfield (semifinal) and Glenbrook North (final). Each victory avenged a loss. “They played exceptionally well,” said HP coach Steve Rudman, whose squad won the regular-season division title with a 5-0 mark and topped runner-up Glenbrook North 23-18 for the overall league championship (regular season/tournament points). “They realized the meaning of patience. At the net they waited for the best shot to finish points. At the baseline they set each other up with offensive lobs and other shots.” Rudman received other first-place efforts from Jonny Raab (No. 3 singles), Dean Sheftel/Brandon Lew (No. 3 doubles) and Jake Fishbein/Chase Garber (No. 4 doubles). Jacob Edelchik (No. 1 singles), Nick Zazove (No. 2 singles) and Eli Schneider/Teddy Dunn (No. 2 doubles) also advanced to title matches. “That was great, getting all of our entrants to finals,” Rudman said. “This one (CSL Meet title) was nice. We had a down year last year. A bunch of our guys improved. They came together as a group, backing each other up, cheering for their good friends — that’s the important stuff.” The Giants host a sectional meet May 23-24. Loyola: The Ramblers won the Chicago Catholic League Tournament on May 17, missing a perfect team score by one victory. LA captured four of the five flight titles, including both doubles segments, at indoor facilities in Evergreen Park and Oak Lawn. Ramblers tandems Duncan Parrott/ Carl Beck (No. 1) and Mark Bredemann/Jack Pillion (No. 2) emerged victorious, while Patrick Browne (No. 2) and Daire Dolan (No. 3) returned to Wilmette as singles champs. LA freshman Peter Horne finished runner-up at No. 1 singles. Coach Tom Fitzgerald’s club totaled 39 points at the nine-team event, ahead of runner-up St. Ignatius (34) and Fenwick (27, third). The Ramblers vie for state berths at the New Trier Sectional May 23-24. New Trier: The Trevians won another Central Suburban League South Tournament behind

championship efforts in all five flights, finishing with 39 points at Maine South on May 17. Runner-up Glenbrook South netted 26 points. Scott Bickel (No. 1) and his brother, Tom Bickel (No. 2), captured the meet’s singles titles. NT’s doubles victors were Corey Schwartz/Chris Lee (No. 1), Thomas Hanley/Adam Jacobs (No. 2), Wyatt Mayer/Ricky Mayer (No. 3) and Gil Fitzgerald/AJ Watkins (No. 4). The Trevians host a sectional meet May 23-24.

The Rundown Girls Track

Lake Forest: Junior Kathryn Bertram just missed qualifying to the Class 3A state meet. At the Lake Zurich Sectional on May 16, she took fourth place in the 400meter dash in 59.67. The state-qualifying standard is 59.44. Senior Mary Rose Donahue placed third in the pole vault (10-0). Junior Diana Mzyk took fifth in the high jump (5-1). Senior Lisa Bennatan was seventh in the 1600 (5:30.21). And LF’s 4x800 relay was fourth (9:44.73). Loyola: As expected, the Ramblers advanced their 4x800 relay team to this weekend’s state meet in Charleston. Kathryn House, Caroline Zaworski, Jackie McDonnell and Sarah Kelley teamed up and won the race by three seconds (9:24.3) at the Niles West Sectional on May 15. House and Kelley also qualified in the 1600. House took the gold (5:01.38), while Kelley advanced with a strong third-place finish (5:06.75). House, Kelley, McDonnell and Hannah Hess also made it out in 4x400 relay (2nd, 4:04.99). Loyola finished fifth in the team standings (41 points). North Shore Country Day: The Raiders claimed runner-up honors (76 points) at Class A Lisle Sectional on May 16. The state qualifiers included senior Rory Kelly in the 3200 meters (1st, 11:39.0) and 1600 meters (1st, 5:23.82), senior Heather Mabie in the triple jump (3rd, 33-9) and junior Antonia Piergies in the 100 hurdles (3rd, 16.64), Boys Track

Highland Park: The Giants and their popular coach, Kevin Caines, who is stepping down as HP’s head coach after this season, celebrated a CSL North championship on May 16 at Deerfield High School. The Giants tallied 162 points to edge second-place Deerfield (131), had a number of winning efforts, including Eddie Smoliak in the pole vault (14-3), Ben Casey in the 1600 (4:25.02) and Angel Estrada in the 3200 (9:53.70). Smoliak is now fifth on the school’s all-time list. HP also won all four relays: 4x800 (Andrew Huddleston, Dylan Kahn, Grant Greenberg and Kevin Merkel); 4x400 (Jeremy Bloom, Deven Greenleaf, Griffin Bojan and Benjy Rogin); and

4x200 (Sammy Coan, Mark Gilling, Rock Ceranti and Kihree Cooper). The runner-ups were Shealtial Israel in the high jump (5-10), Kelshawn Shields in the long jump (19-6 ½), Greenleaf in the 400 (53.51), Estrada in the 1600 (4:26.92) and Rogin in the 110 hurdles (14.98) and 300 hurdles (40.82). Lake Forest: This relay is for real. A week after setting a Lake County record in the 4x100 relay (42.74), the Scouts were at it again on May 15 at the NSC Meet at Mundelein. This time, the foursome of Connor Adams, Austin McIlvaine, Jack Blumeyer and Conner Hayes stormed past Zion-Benton to win the title in 42.79. Sophomore Gavin Hoch was another headliner for the Scouts, who finished fifth in the team standings (57 points). He claimed runner-up honors in the 110 hurdles (15.76) and 300 hurdles (40.64). The team also received received solid efforts from senior Robert Schyns in the 110 hurdles (3rd, 15.91), junior Matt Mekaelian in the 1600 meters (3rd, 4:26.64) and sophomore Mark Myers in the 3200 (9:40.68). Loyola: There was more silver — and bronze — than gold but that didn’t keep the host Ramblers from winning the Chicago Catholic League meet on May 17. The lone LA championship came in the 4x800 relay (8:25.9) with junior Zach Gruber, sophomore Scott Berens, senior Gavin Krueger and sophomore Patrick Reilly-Hayward. Runner-up finishes were turned in by junior Jack Carroll in the 800 (1:58.55), senior Austin Lyons in the high jump (6-2) and senior Nicholas Newell in the 400 (50.89). Junior Christian Swenson and senior Teddy Brombach finished 3-4 in the 1600 and 3200, while junior John Miller and senior Joshua Word ended up 3-4 in the 400. Senior Javier Shelly was third in the 300 hurdles.


Boys Volleyball

Loyola: The Ramblers improved their overall mark to 25-4 after defeating Deerfield 25-21, 25-17 in the championship of the Evanston Spring Fling Tournament on May 17. David Wieczorek paced LA with 15 kills, while Jakub Mazurek added six kills. The Ramblers, who went 3-1 in pool play with wins over Lincoln Park, Northside Prep and Joliet West, advanced to the title match by downing the host Wildkits 25-15, 27-25. Wieczorek finished with 17 kills. Connor Kreb, Nicholas Thilmany and Andrew Cecola had solid showings in the pool-play victories. New Trier: Led by Peter Hindsley (13 kills), Jack Serrino (11 kills, 2 blocks), Matt Consolo (34 assists), Brian Hammes (17 digs) and Andrew Sommer (5 blocks), the Trevians outlasted Maine South 25-18, 21-25, 25-23 on May 15 to finish first in the CSL South with a 9-1 mark. NT improved its overall record to 27-7. ■

HP's Lane, relay mates have high hopes at state ■ by jeff davis Highland Park High School’s Kenzie Horberg, Kiera Thorpe, Courtney Bartelstein and Nyjah Lane raced to all-state honors in the 400-meter relay last season. Now they’re aiming to achieve similar success in the 800 relay, too. Sophomore Horberg, junior Thorpe and seniors Bartelstein and Lane not only won the 800 relay in their first time racing the event at the Class 3A Niles West Sectional on May 15, but also did so in a school record 1:44.77 to qualify to this weekend’s state meet in Charleston. The quartet also won a sectional title and earned a return state trip in the 400 relay in 49.17 after placing eighth at

state in 48.93 and setting a school record in the state preliminaries (48.51) last year. “They’re chemistry has only grown (from last year) and I think that (800 relay) gives them a lot of confidence and they’re comfortable in a good way with their teammates but not overconfident,” Highland Park coach Sarah Palmberg says. “They’re running together a lot more consistently. Because they haven’t run that distance, they took something from that (race) that’s going to make them stronger for Friday (at state).” Horberg and Thorpe sacrificed competing in the 400 run for the 800 relay. “They had potential to qualify in the 400, but we talked about the one that gives us the best chance to be on the medal stand at state,” says Palmberg, whose team had the 11th-fastest 800

relay time. “Hopefully we can take more time off.” Lane also advanced in the 100 (12.27) and 200 dash (26.13) to Evanston standout Parker English (12.09) and 24.64). Last year, she placed fourth at state in the race in a school-record 12.09. “Nyjah raced very well,” Palmberg says. “Her 100 time was the second-fastest I’ve ever seen her run and the fastest was in the finals at state last year. It gives her a little more confidence and assurance.” Thorpe also won triple jump (34-8 ¼) for the Giants (67 points), who placed third behind Evanston (124) and New Trier (96) at the sectional. HP’s 1600 relay of Horberg, junior Sydney Jantischke, Bartelstein and Thorpe placed third in a school-record time of 4:05.37. ■

Let’s face it

Loyola’s Nickele a money player in sectional championship ■ by bill mclean It was inevitable after he suffered a broken nose in a water polo game and had to wear a protective mask for a few games this spring. Loyola Academy senior driver Jack Nickele got tagged with nicknames. One was “Hannibal Lector.” “Robocop” was another. “Some called me ‘Richard Hamilton,’ ” Nickele said, referring to the former Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls shooting guard who wore a similar face mask for most of his NBA career. Following a postseason water polo contest on May 17, a mask-free Nickele was able to answer to another label: sectional champ. Nickele, a tri-captain, and the top-seeded Ramblers beat third-seeded Niles West 11-5 in the Glenbrook South Sectional final to secure the program’s fourth Elite Eight berth in five years. LA (28-5) was scheduled to face Palatine High School in a state quarterfinal at Stevenson on May 22. Nickele — “It’s spelled like nickel with an ‘e’ at the end,” said Ramblers coach Daniel Hengelmann — was money during a critical stretch in the third quarter of the final, scoring both of his goals in a span of 37 seconds. Niles West (22-8) had narrowed LA’s lead to 5-3 earlier in the frame. Nickele’s man-up goal, with 36 ticks left

in the period, swelled the Ramblers’ lead to a fairly comfortable 7-3 lead. Tom Baker provided the assist. “We had not been doing well in manup situations before that,” said Nickele, a Glenview resident who plans to major in engineering at USC. Loyola’s Matt Kearney (team-high four goals) poured in all three of the Ramblers’ goals in the final quarter after scoring the first goal of the championship at the 4:23 mark of the first period. Senior tri-captain Cameron Shewchuck (two goals) dished the game’s first assist. Jack Schermerhorn (two goals) and tricaptain George Finn (goal) also beat West’s keeper. But it was Loyola’s defense that would have earned the No. 1 star had such an award existed in the sport. Senior goalie Trevor Prince and the stout defenders in front of him kept Niles West scoreless until 4:17 of the third quarter. “It was all about playing defense today,” said Hengelmann, who guided Ramblers to second- and third-place finishes at the 2012 and 2011 state tournaments, respectively. “Niles West is a very good team, physical and tough with a strong inside presence. “It blows my mind how good Niles West is in only its fourth year as a program,” he added. Prince was a JV goalie at this time last year, toiling at a position he thought he’d never have to play. But forward-thinking Ramblers coaches needed to groom a keeper

for this spring. They picked Prince, a lefty field player. “He’s good, very good, our lockdown back there,” Hengelmann said, adding Prince has allowed fewer than six goals per game for the two-time reigning Catholic League champions. “Trevor accepted [the shift from field player to keeper], made some sacrifices.” Nickele’s nose survived an entirely different kind of shift at the Stevenson Tournament in early May. An opposing player had inadvertently elbowed it, prompting an on-site trainer to reset it with his hands. Hengelmann couldn’t mask his appreciation for Nickele after the sectional final. “Our heart and soul,” Hengelmann said. “He’s quiet, but when he leads, everybody follows.” Meanwhile, New Trier’s boys squad lost 13-4 to LA in a sectional semifinal on May 16, two days after topping Glenbrook North 14-7. NT beat LA 11-9 in a sectional final last spring. New Trier/Loyola Girls A few minutes before the start of the second half of the Glenbrook South girls water polo sectional final, two players had the entire pool to themselves. One was New Trier junior goalie Keelin Frank. The other was another NT goalie, senior Zoe Gottlieb. Frank bobbed in front of a goal on May 17, awaiting a practice shot from Gottlieb, positioned about five meters from her friend and teammate. Gottlieb fired away; Frank stopped the shot. Gottlieb whipped another practice shot; it sped past Frank and thudded the back of the goal. Gottlieb, the Trevians’ first-half goalie, was getting Frank, the second-half goalie, warmed up for the final 14 minutes of New Trier’s battle with top-seeded Loyola Academy. Each team had scored three goals in the first 14 minutes of the sectional final. “It’s a great combination, those two,” NT coach Matt Wendt said the night before, when Gottlieb-Frank combined to blank Maine South 12-0 in a sectional semifinal. “It’s rare, having two outstanding goalies on the same team. “It’s also a privilege,” he added. Frank came up big in the second half of the final, halting several point-blank shots early in the third quarter and helping second-seeded NT edge LA 7-6 for the program’s second Elite Eight berth in three years and fourth in program history. The victory avenged a dramatic 5-4 loss to Loyola in a sectional final last spring.

“Tight, I’m telling you … our games with Loyola are always tight,” a thrilled, sweatsoaked Wendt said. “Stressful, too. “Senior leadership is what it’s all about it, and we certainly have that,” he added, alluding to captains Gottlieb, Jacqueline Glattard, Shannon Kent and Natalie Goldman. Glattard, an intelligent and resourceful utility player, scored both of her goals in the third quarter, including the one she tallied 31 seconds after the swim-off. Each goal broke a tie. Glattard downplayed her role, saying, “I’m kind of on the side, on the periphery.” But only one Trev — Glattard — was chosen to take home the championship plaque and keep it for a day. “She is very good academically,” Wendt said of the University of Illinois-bound engineering major. “There’s no question that carries over to water polo.” Stephanie Jodloman also scored a pair of goals for the Trevians (18-11), who face host Stevenson in a state quarterfinal May 23 at 4:30 p.m. Kent, Goldman and Kaleigh Dolan chucked the other three. Loyola (19-13) was paced by seniors Marta Considine (2 goals) and Emily Barr (2 goals). Ramblers Claire Voss and Julia Sajnaj each finished with a goal. “New Trier never stopped competing, never stopped battling,” said LA coach Rich Schici, whose crew had to play the second half without two starters who had fouled out. Considine ended the final season of her stellar career with 149 goals, or an average an 4.7 per game. The Bucknell University recruit poured in 120 goals for last year’s Elite Eight squad. “She’s really excited about playing in college,” Schici said. “So am I. There’s a lot of water polo left in her.” New Trier had at least one more game left in its season after last weekend’s action in Glenview. The Trevians’ goalies secured that extension by making big save after big save above a big, watery stage. “She’s our ‘Great Wall of China,’ ” Gottlieb said of Frank. “Zoe,” Frank said, “is my rock.” Notable: NT received four goals from Brittany Bishop and three from Lauren Barrett in its 12-0 defeat of Maine South in a sectional semifinal on May 16. … Considine’s four goals lifted LA to a 9-4 win over Maine East in the other sectional semi on May 16. Sajnaj finished with two goals and six steals, and LA senior Liz Kyle (goal) collected three steals in the first quarter. Colleen Ahern was the winning keeper. … NT and LA split their four meetings this spring. ■

38 | perfect weekend jeff and susan

reunite and enjoy the splendor of Ojai Susan and Jeff Mandel met as youngsters attending Ravinia Elementary School in Highland Park. After being reintroduced at a high school reunion five years ago, they were married this past November. The newlyweds say every day for them is a weekend. But when they leave the North Shore, they like visiting the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa in California. “In terms of a beautiful piece of country, it’s gorgeous,” says Susan, whose husband Jeff lived in California for 35 years before returning here to live with his bride.

“In terms of a beautiful piece of country, it’s gorgeous.” They first visited together soon after both of their fathers had passed away. As they sat on the terrace waiting for their room to be ready, Susan felt spiritually rejuvenated after an extremely tough spell. “It was such a relief of emotion. It was so relaxing,” she recalls. Both builders, they were impressed by the attention to detail at the inn, such as the compelling look of the interior. They played golf at the Ojai Country Club, built in 1923, which has hosted Bing Crosby and other Hollywood celebrities throughout the years. At Sandpiper Golf Club in Santa Barbara, they were transfixed by the ocean views. During the evenings, they’d watch the sun set and sit around a bonfire at the inn eating S’mores. They are both glad they reconnected at the City Park Grill during that reunion. Asked if she remembered Jeff Mandel while she sat there, Susan said, “Yeah, he was a really nice guy.” They met again that evening — and she said he hadn’t changed at all. — David Sweet
