And it’s quite likely that they ate dead animals, similar to buzzards and vultures, she noted. Another dinosaur, Confuciusornis, found in China, had flight feathers, longer than its body, showing that it had already diverged from the evolutionary line that led to modern birds, according to zoo officials. This animal had a wish bone and a toothless beak like a bird as well. It is the earliest known bird related to the dinosaur, zoo officials said.

ence. In the past few years, scientists have begun to find out even more that lends credence to the idea that birds evolved from dinosaurs. In parts of the Far East and right here in the western United States, scientists have found that a number of species – including the feared Tyrannosaurus Rex – had feathers, said Jamie Zite- Strumbris, the interpretative programs coordinator of the exhibition, who created the text for the signage in the displays. “Juveniles in particular had downy feathers. The coat was either to keep them warm or for display to catch a mate,” said Zite- Strumbris, who noted it is not certain that the feathers molted over time or they remained. “They

RIVERSIDE – Generations have been drawn to dinosaurs, fascinated by their size, abilities and even how the huge creatures met their doom. A new exhibit at Brookfield Zoo will add another potential fascination – that they may have more in common with today’s birds than previously thought. Dinosaurs Alive!, which opened April 6, is an animatronics display featuring many – and some unfamiliar – specimens of these ancient creatures. A total of 24 life-size creatures inhabit the exhibit and are elevated to movie-star status, with fun, easy-to-understand signage that is a hallmark of many of the displays at the zoo. Other signage draws connections between the animals of the past and those of the present. A pit is included so that visitors can dig for fossils and an interactive display can help youngsters and older folk learn more about them. Along a dusty trail, visitors can see many of the dinosaurs that they no doubt grew up learning about. There’s a Stegosaurus that had back legs twice as long as its front legs, and Triceratops too. Did you know that the head of a Triceratops encompassed one-third of its overall body length? These are the type of fun facts informing visitors to the exhibit. And of course, for all those who love to spend time browsing, there’s a gift shop filled with dinosaur-related items. While it might be fun craning your head to watch in amazement the Styracosaurus or the Dilophosaurus, it’s the indoor portion of this exhibit that might be even more interesting to visitors. The indoor showcase highlights the most recent findings in dinosaur sci-

Bus driver suspended after letting man on bus headed for LT By ALEX RUPPENTHAL aruppenthal@shawmedia.com BROOKFIELD — The man who boarded a school bus taking students to Lyons Township High School on April 2 and handed out rap CDs has been identified as the 36-yearold parent of an LT student, Brookfield police said Friday. Police spoke with the man, but no charges have been filed against him. On April 4, the driver of the bus was suspended. The man, a La Grange

resident, boarded the bus at Shields and Raymond avenues in Brookfield, according to a Brookfield police officer who spoke with a 17-year-old LT student who was on the bus. The man began handing out CDs with rap music to students. Video surveillance showed that the man asked the bus driver if he could board the bus to hand out the CDs. The driver said, “OK, real quick,” at which point the man got on to the bus and distributed the CDs, which he said he had

produced with “Kruel Beatz.” The man then asked the driver to wait while he retrieved more CDs, which the driver did, before getting back on the bus and handing out more of them. He also told the students, “if any of you have talents hit them up on Facebook.” The bus driver, when contacted by Brookfield police, said he thought the man was one of the students on the route. The driver said he drives the route every day. First Student, the bus com-

pany, suspended the driver pending the outcome of an investigation. The company said the driver has been employed with First Student since July 2010 and has had no previous issues. “It’s concerning to us that this could happen,” District 204 Superintendent Timothy Kilrea said. “Student safety is our top priority. We have addressed the concerns with our bus company and will continue to do so.” Kilrea said he could not recall a similar incident oc-

curing in the past. “It’s very odd, very concerning to us,” he said. The incident was reported to the police by a mother of a student on the bus. LT officials sent an email to parents of students on the bus route regarding the incident. LT spokesperson Jennifer Bialobok said First Student has assured the school that it is taking the incident seriously and that the company sent a message to its employees reminding them of protocol.

she said. At the same time, she said she’s seeing more homes recently purchased worth less than the list price. To be competitive in the modern marketplace Alonzo said Realtors have to be proficient in multiple areas, but particularly the short sale and foreclosure markets. She said about 70 percent of her office’s business is made up of short sales and foreclosures. “You have to know what’s happening in the industry to provide your customers with the best options to sell their homes,” she said. “We’re dealing with a day-today basis here.” Although the real estate market took a hit in the economic downturn, she said home sales are now a driving force for the economy. For first time homebuyers Alonzo said it’s important to find a reputable Realtor and mortgage lender before diving into the market. “This is usually the biggest purchase someone will make in their life. It’s important to know how much you can afford to spend on a home,” she said.

LA GRANGE PARK – A La Grange Park-based Realtor was recognized by the Mainstreet Organization of Realtors (MORe) as the top Realtor of 2013. Loretta Alonzo, of Romeoville, has been selling homes since 1976. Alonzo said receiving the 2013 Realtor of the Year honor was something she did not expect. She received the news when colleagues at Century 21 Alonzo and Associates, 1011 E. 31 st St., urged her to join them in a lunch they said was being provided by a mortgage lender. She stepped out to her colleagues and members of MORe congratulating her on the designation. “I did not expect that at all, but it was nice to be presented the award in front of my colleagues,” said Alonzo. I love this business and it’s really nice to be recognized. Even after all these years I still get a good feeling inside when I help someone buy or sell their home.” Alonzo said she’s usually re-

served in her behavior, but being honored with the award “brought tears to her eyes.” MORe selects its Realtor of the year recipient based on service to the local, state and national Realtor association, as well as community service and professional designation. Alonzo, who is the immediate past president of MORe, is heavily involved with various Realtor committees across the suburban area. She is a past president of the Multiple Listing Service of Northern Illinois and was recognized as Realtor of the year six times by the West Towns Board of Realtors. She was also formerly named woman of the year by the Mexican-American Business and Professional Women’s Club. Alonzo has also worked with Easter Seals, the Grand Haven Veterans Club and the La Grange Park Chamber of Commerce. In over 37 years in the business, Alonzo has seen a lot of change. When she started, interest rates were 18-19 percent, now potential buyers can find rates as low as 4 percent. There has also been a big increase in the values of homes,

First there was the ‘why’ of Soviet research; and he quickly learned that it was connected to Soviet military research. Unlike the diamonds in 1971’s James Bond film (Diamonds are Forever), synthetic diamonds were not to be used directly in weapons systems. Diamonds are nearly perfect transmitters of heat; and printed circuits, printed on ‘slices’ of diamond instead of glass, that is, lay at the heart of the Soviet research initiative. The electromagnetic pulse emitted by a nuclear blast would ‘fry’ circuits printed on glass at a fairly great distance - thus compromising the utility of modern communications and computer hardware on the ‘nuclear battlefield’. By contrast, a circuit printed on a diamond slice could quickly and uniformly dissipate the heat a blast generated electromagnetic pulse imposed on a circuit printed on it, thus rendering it ‘battlefield hardened’. The government’s collapse had brought research to a sudden halt that left scientists and technicians employed in it high and dry - and looking for a new source of income. Their research and need brought Tom, eventually, to researchers in component states of the old Soviet Union - Russia (Novosibirsk), Ukraine (Kiev) and Belorussia (Minsk). In Novosibirsk Tom quickly found scientists interested in making diamonds for the consumer market. Unfortunately, the Russian ‘Mafia’ learned of his interest almost at once and tried to ‘muscle in’. This left Tom waiting in Novosibirsk (and waiting, and waiting) for the problem to work itself out until one day a stranger approached him on the street. The news of his interest had made its way through the gossip underground to Kiev; and the stranger was there to make him an offer. “Come to Kiev,” he said, “And we will make diamonds for you.” Frustrated in Novosibirsk, Tom readily agreed to give Kiev a try. Sure enough, when he got to the diamond laboratory in Kiev he was shown some small, but nice, recognizably synthetic diamonds; so he and the scientists made a tentative agreement. All did not go well, however. It takes quite a bit of electrical power to synthesize diamonds (using heat and pressure); and shortly after Tom and his new collaborators had made their agreement, Ukraine’s coal miners went out on strike. Coal was not shipped to generation plants; electrical power became irregular; and the new partnership died. Once again at loose ends, Tom cooled his heels in Kiev awaiting the return of power; but the gossip underground was still at work. A new stranger turned up. “Come to Minsk,” he said, “We’re making pretty good synthetic diamonds.” True to his quest, Tom went to Minsk.

exclaimed. “These are the best I’ve seen yet, let me see more.” Somewhat uncomfortable now, the former Soviet scientists admitted that while they had made quite a few more, they had shown him were all they had. “What happened to the rest?” queried Tom. A moment of silence, then one of the scientists replied, “We sold them to a Belgian diamond cutter.” Chagrined at a Belgian having beaten him to the synthetic diamond market, Tom could only say, “I didn’t know the Belgians were cutting synthetic diamonds.” Looking down at his shoes, the scientist who had revealed the disposition of their diamonds shook his head saying, “Neither do they.” In short the synthetic diamonds had been passed off as natural and sold into the gem trade; but in the second decade of the 21st century this is far less likely to happen.

Two techniques of synthetic diamond manufacture are currently in use, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and Russian developed heat and pressure (HPHT); and each leaves its ‘finger prints’ in a diamond grown using it. De Beers, once alerted to the threat of synthetic diamonds being fraudulently introduced into the market as natural gems, put its science team to work and in the late ‘90s introduced two machines into the market, the ‘DiamondSure’ and the ‘DiamondView’. These so accurately ferret out a diamond’s ‘finger prints’ that they’ve come into general use in the diamond trade. Of course, that doesn’t keep the honesty challenged from trying. In the spring of 2012, for example, a parcel of several hundred cut diamonds ranging from about 0.30 carats to 0.70 carats (few larger synthetics have ever been grown) arrived at the Gemological Institute of America’s lab in Hong Kong. All were suspiciously free of nitrogen (95% of all natural diamonds contain traces of nitrogen) and all showed the curved graining typical of CVD grown diamonds. Clearly all were synthetic and all of them were kept out of the market for natural diamonds. Needless to say, it’s important to know who you are buying diamonds from. Ours are natural, sourced from DeBeers and the cream of the crop. We think the emotional value of a diamond gift is so great that only a beautiful diamond will do; so come see us for the very best in diamonds. You’ll never regret it because we’re Hursts’ Berwyn Jewelers, an uncommon jeweler. You can learn more about us on line at hurstsberwynjewelers.com, then phone us at 708.788.0880 for an appointment.

Every now and then I am asked about synthetic diamonds; and every time it brings to mind a story told me by Tom Chatham (a successful maker of synthetic emeralds, sapphires and rubies) almost 20 years ago. Following the collapse of the old Soviet Union many former Soviet scientists were searching for a new identity and a new job; and soon stories about Russian synthetic diamonds began making their way west. When they came to Tom, he decided he had to learn more.

Possession of drug paraphernalia


La Grange man visits hospital chapel more than 1,000 times to honor wife SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA LA GRANGE — Almost every day for the past four years, Lee Cheshier has visited the chapel at Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital, where his wife, Catherine, died in 2009. Deviating from his routine only on holidays or occasional sick days, Cheshier has made almost 1,500 trips to the chapel over the past four years. “She was my life,” said Cheshier, who lives a few miles from the hospital in La Grange. “I was her sole caretaker and I still miss her every day. When I’m at the chapel, I feel like I’m near her.” The couple met at a Chicago high school when Lee was 17 and Catherine was 15. “I sat behind her in class,” Cheshier, now 91, said about the day the two met. “The first thing I did

was pull her hair and she turned right around and told me to stop it. I knew then she was going to be my girl.” They later married, had two children and moved to La Grange 35 years ago. They were together for 66 years before Catherine died of complications from Alzheimer’s disease. Lee Cheshier was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2004. He typically spends just a few minutes in the chapel, which is usually empty. Sometimes he plays the chapel piano, which he taught himself to play. On the day Cheshier lost his wife, the hospital’s then-CEO, Rick Wright, walked into the chapel and asked if he could play a song. Wright and Cheshier eventually became friends and later went to lunch together. Cheshier plays the

piano for himself, but one day he didn’t notice a woman sitting in the back of the chapel while he was playing. When he finished, she stood up and said, “Thank you, that really helped me today,” and left. Mark Woolfington, the chaplain at Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital, introduced himself to Lee after watching Cheshier walk into the chapel, Bible and cup of coffee in hand, day after day. “Lee is a gentleman in the truest sense of the word and a great blessing to our hospital family,” Woolfington said. “If you enter the chapel while he is playing the piano, he’ll always ask if his playing will disturb you. I’ve told Lee many times that the opposite is true. His presence and gentle music have helped many other visitors and patients through their own difficult times.”

Together we can eliminate summer slide To every child, it seems as if the school year will never end. But we know the carefree days of summer are just around the corner. You know, the lazy days that prove difficult when motivating children to exercise their brains with something other than video games 24/7. We’ve all heard the familiar whine, “But its summer!” This is when a strong partnership with the public library comes into play. Parents and librarians must unite against “summer slide.” What is summer slide you COMMUNITY ask? Summer slide refers VOICE to the learning that is lost by children that spend the Kristen summer without books and Jacobson reading. Johns Hopkins University Center for Summer Learning estimates children who do not enjoy summer reading lose approximately two months of learning by the time school resumes in the fall. We must do everything we can to engage children in reading, be it through books, magazines, games, computers, etc. Allow your children to select books they wish to read, and they will naturally discover the joy of reading, and soon develop a habit that will serve them for a lifetime. Children are great imitators, so be your child’s role model and enjoy daily reading with them. You can play games that require reading and talk to your kids about what they read. And of course, partner with the library by joining the library’s Summer Reading Club — no child is too young to join — we even offer programs for infants! Westchester Public Library now has a teen librarian who is sure to draw the high school crowd with a Teen Reading Club, teen activities and food. No matter the age, enthusiastic librarians are always willing to find the right book and lead programs that enrich the literacy experience. Let’s work hand in hand to achieve our goal of creating lifelong readers. In the process we can reverse summer slide. As we work together to nurture a love of reading we will be happily surprised when our children lament returning to school in the fall — because they won’t have enough time to read! Come to think of it, why should this alliance between parents and librarians end when school is in session? The library offers year-round programs. Check us out — we’ll be partners for life.

Kristen Jacobson is the youth department manager at the Westchester Public Library

The intersection of 47th Street and East Avenue in La Grange.

As a newspaper, Suburban Life appreciates the sharing of information to keep us all better informed about what goes on in our neighborhoods. So we’d like to give a thumbs up to the members of the 47th Street / East Avenue Community Group on Facebook. The group was formed as an outlet for residents near the intersection of 47th Street and East Avenue in La Grange to share information with one another about proposed Illinois Department of Transportation plans for controlling traffic there, and to work together to promote safety on 47th Street as a whole. Students, staff and community members came together recently to make Easter a little brighter for kids in the Off the Street Club, based in the West Garfield Park neighborhood of Chicago. Students gathered items — toys, books and art supplies — for donation and then presented them in Easter baskets for the kids.

Continued from page 3 Guests will also learn about how dinosaurs can be relevant to today’s world. No one really knows for certain why or how dinosaurs became extinct. Some scientists speculate that a huge comet or meteor struck the Earth, or there was a massive volcanic event. Relvant in today’s world, guests will learn that changes in climate may have led to their extinction. What happened to these creatures can give some glimpses into the planet’s future, said Andre Copeland, interpretative programs manager, who helped coordinate the exhibit. “By studying the past we start to disprove some theories. We learn how sudden drastic changes can cause mass extinction. Animals can adapt so long as they have enough time to adapt to their environment,” he said. “This helps us see how we can proceed into the future and look for links to the past.” Brookfield Zoo first explored the world of dinosaurs in 2009. Some of the species in that exhibit were similar to those found among today’s “stars.” The exhibit is $5 for adults and $3 for children and seniors over 65 That’s in addition to the regular zoo general admission, which is $15 for adults and $10.50 for children and seniors over 65. Children ages two and under are free. The effort is presented by Dominick’s. Discounted-combo general zoo admission and tickets for this special exhibit are available for purchase at participating Dominick’s stores. Zoo members can take advantage of half-price admission to Dinosaurs Alive. Brookfield Zoo is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and is located off First Avenue between the Stevenson and Eisenhower expressways. It is also accessible by the TriState Tollway, Metra commuter line, CTA and PACE bus service. For more information, log on to www. CZS.org.

The fun atmosphere of the walk also resonates with the 4,000-plus walkers who take part in singing, dancing and sharing stories each year, Murray said. It’s upbeat and encouraging. To go along with that theme, Murray’s family has developed a “no complaining pact” for the walk because there are others who have experienced far worse pain and fatigue. The family also says a prayer each mile for anyone affected by breast cancer. “Everyone has a story, whether it’s their own story or someone they know,” Murray said as she pulled out an old lime green shirt she wore in a previous Avon walk with her mother featured on the back. Murray once again will have to raise the $1,800 needed to participate in this year’s walk June 1 and 2. To donate to Murray’s cause, visit avonwalk.org and click on “Donate to a participant,” then search for her by name.

DARIEN — Later this spring, Irene Murray will walk a little more than 275 miles, say 275 prayers and sing, laugh and dance her way along a twoday journey for a good cause. The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Chicago is a two-day, 39.3-mile walk going from Soldier Field to Horner Park and back again. It’s a chance to not only raise funds to help eliminate breast cancer, but to bring thousands together who have been touched by the disease. Murray’s story starts when she was a teenager. She was one of seven kids when she lost her mother 33 years ago to breast cancer. Back then, cancer was somewhat of a taboo word, the Darien native said. “I was only 18 at the time and when I got older, I realized how ridiculous that was,” she said. Murray didn’t want to fear breast cancer. That’s when she found out about the Avon Walk. This year is Murray’s seventh walk. For her first Avon Walk, just one of her sisters tagged along, but now she’s recruited her daughters and nieces. “We now have 32 grandkids in our family that never got to meet their grandma,” Murray said. “All of us have a personal connection to trying to find a cure to breast cancer because 32 kids had to grow up without a grandma.”

Rissi’s Old Time Candy and Toys in Berwyn is packaging up some sweet treats to send to troops overseas. Customers can purchase packages to be sent and can include a personal note.

Berwyn candy store to sweeten up life for the troops By JOE SINOPOLI

LSL

jsinopoli@shawmedia.com BERWYN – Hard candy goes a long way in hard times and can also sweeten the days experienced by soldiers overseas. Rissi’s Old Time Candy and Toys, 6834 Windsor Ave., have put together Candy Care Packs to chase away a soldier’s blues. On April 20 from noon to 3 p.m., the Candy Care Packs will be available at the store for $12.50 per box. The purchaser can then decide if they want it sent to a Marine, soldier, sailor or airman and write a note. The packs are then shipped by the store to the troops overseas. The pre-filled boxes include candies that are strong enough to make the trip without damage, store owner Tracy Balnis said. Empty Packs can also be purchased for $2 and then filled with about a pound of candy purchased at the store. They are then shipped by the store April 22. To get into the mood on April 20, The teen-aged Chesna Sisters will entertain

in the style of The Andrews Sisters. Balnis said it was her sister, Chrissy, who came up with the idea. “My sister’s sister-in-law, Arlene Mayen, is serving in Afghanistan,” she said. “They don’t have many comforts. They get shampoo, baby wipes, stuff like that, but nothing sweet to remind them of those who love them at home.” Balnis said she also has a nephew who served overseas who said it was always exciting to get some candy in the mail. The 1 lb-packs are shipped 18 to a box and mailed to a specific military person from a list of names now being sought from military sources. “We then ask them to pass the packs out to friends,” Balnis said. “We’re really excited. I hope the soldiers get excited and like it.” Customers may also submit an Army Post Office (APO) address if they have permission from the recipient and recipient agrees to pass out the packs.

Hawthorne’s Backyard proves cozy dining retreat With a little imagination, you might think you’ve wandered off a Montana turnpike and landed in a rustic, rural roadhouse at Hawthorne’s Backyard in West Chicago. The post-and-beam construction in the dining room set on four acres of wooded grounds help fuel the illusion. And the restaurant and bar definitely cater to logger-size appetites with generous portions of homemade fare. Among the standouts is Momma’s Pot Roast sandwich, which we tried in its appetizer incarnation, happily learning we were in for the Tuesday half-price deal on starters. Served as four sliders on soft buns, they were big on well-seasoned, slow-cooked flavor. “Frazzled Onions” topped the sliders and my dining companion’s pulled-pork sandwich. Fine ribbons of crispy, battered onions lend a tangy touch as garnish and are a lighter, tasty alternative to onion rings. We shared a cup of the grill’s signature tomato-artichoke soup, prepared with big

chunks of artichoke in a mildly piquant, light broth. The pulled-pork sandwich serves as a taste test for the full-fledged pig roasts Hawthorne’s holds, including catering private events. “Very tasty,” was the twoword review as my companion gave full attention to the sandwich in hand, served with creamy cole slaw that has a gentle kick. It’s one of a choice of sides. The adjoining bar offers seven beers on tap, including Guinness, and an ample list of standard domestic and imported beers. Hawthorne’s also delivers its own twist on cocktails, including a Jack Honey Breakfast Shot whose ingredients include bacon. There’s no wine list. Our server recommended the wings and the barbecue ribs, and I couldn’t resist the latter. Incredibly flavorful, the baby back ribs didn’t require a slathering of the extra house barbecue sauce provided, but spoke volumes about taste all by themselves.

The music usually ranges between rock and country, explained

the server, noting it kicks off after 9 p.m. For seafood fans, he recommends the barbecue grilled salmon entree and a blackened grouper sandwich. A holdover from the previous restaurant at the site is the “King James” fish fry Friday nights. The casual, family-friendly dining room offers tables and booths, and has several televi-

Theatre of Western Springs to undertake ‘Trip to Bountiful’ By SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA The beloved American play, “The Trip to Bountiful,” will open Thursday, April 11, at Theatre of Western Springs. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Horton Foote, it is directed by noted Artistic Director Rick Snyder. “The Trip to Bountiful” is the poignant story of Mrs. Watts, played by Mary Van Nest of Western Springs, an aging widow living in a three-room flat in Houston with her son and daughter-inlaw. They are portrayed by real-life married couple Jason and Stacy McCargo of Western Springs. Fearing her presence is an imposition, Mrs. Watts imagines that if she can get away and return to her old home in the town of Bountiful, she is sure to regain her strength, dignity and peace of mind. When she makes a lonely pilgrimage to Bountiful and the scene of her childhood home, the results are both life affirming and heartbreaking. The cast also features George Dempsey and Jack Bannon, both of Hin-

bird” and “Tender Mercies.” He got his start as a writer during the golden age of television, and adapted many of his stories for different media, including “The Trip to Bountiful,” originally one of nine, one-hour dramas that television producer Fred Coe signed Foote to write. Coe liked to have one-page synopses, but Foote recalled he didn’t know how to describe “The Trip to Bountiful” on paper and opted for a verbal exchange. “It’s about an old lady who wants to go home,” Foote told him. “That’s it?” Coe asked “That’s it,” Foote replied. “Go ahead,” Coe said. “I trust you.” In a 1986 interview, Foote expounded on the themes that run through his work, saying, “I believe very deeply in the human spirit, and I have a sense of awe about it, because I don’t know how people carry on. I’ve known people that the world has thrown everything at to discourage them, to kill them, to break their spirit. And yet something about them retains a dignity. They face life, and they don’t ask questions.”

Lyons Township’s Sam Heilenbach swings at a pitch Saturday at Downers Grove North.

‘We’re OK’ By DAN SANTAROMITA dsantaromita@shawmedia.com WESTERN SPRINGS — The Lyons Township baseball team isn’t dominating teams early in the season, but if they can take advantage of more opportunities, they just might start doing that. A midweek loss to Lincoln-Way North and a split doubleheader against Downers Grove North to open conference play isn’t going to

impress anyone. However, coach George Ushela is confident the team is playing fine. “We’re OK, we’ve left a lot of guys on base,” Ushela said. “We had the makings of big innings and just haven’t capitalized. We haven’t had tremendously timely hitting.” Ushela noted the lack of timely hitting is as much about well-hit balls finding fielders as it is a lack of execution. Lincoln-Way North’s

Coach believes timely hitting can help eliminate LT’s early season struggles

Mike Miller held LT to one hit for the second year in a row in Wednesday’s 3-0 Phoenix win. Tom Prescott pitched five innings for LT. The Lions fell for a second game in a row in a 6-3 loss at Downers Grove North, a loss that stings with Ushela. “ W e g a v e u p f i v e u nearned runs, we made four errors and they scored a lot of their runs after we got the first two guys out,” he said. Needing a big win, LT turned to its ace, Michi-

gan-recruit Keith Lehmann and he delivered in the second game. Lehmann pitched a complete game and struck out 10 batters in the 3-2 win. The rubber game was pushed back from Monday due to wet field conditions. LT next plays against Proviso East on Thursday before a three-game West Suburban Silver set with Proviso West. The Panthers have been 10run ruled in all six Silver games so far.

On the attack By DAN SANTAROMITA

Ari Kowalski

dsantaromita@shawmedia.com WESTERN SPRINGS — Earlier this season, Lyons Township girls soccer coach Bill Lanspeary described Ari Kowalski’s role on the team as “Everything.” The Lions’ star senior is signed to play for Indiana in the fall, but before she patrols the back line for the Hoosiers, Kowalski is playing a different position for LT this spring. Kowalski has been a defender for as long as she’s played soccer, but the Lions had a lot of returners on defense, and Lanspeary tries to play a possession style of soccer that demands high-quality players in the midfield. As one of the leaders and most talented players on the team, Kowalski has moved into the midfield this year and hasn’t

missed a beat in the new spot. “It’s fun to play a new position,” Kowalski said. “I’ve always played defense my whole life, but I think it’s good for the team so I can get in the attack and then we can put other players back there. We’ve got a strong defense without me.” The Lions had only surrendered two goals through their first five games following Saturday’s 2-0 win over Jacobs in the opener of the Pepsi Showdown. Defenders Catherine King, Liza Gabrek, C.C. Holbert and Grace Nasenbenny and goalkeeper Lidia Breen have solidified

the defense without Kowalski playing alongside them. Kowalski still contributes to the defense as a defensive midfielder for LT, but the new position gives her the freedom to enter the attack. She already has a goal to her name, scoring a key goal at York on April 2 on a skillful first-touch chip shot. She has always had the ability to be an effective player in the attack, but moving up the field has shifted how Kowalski sees the action. “I feel like it’s making me into more of a creative player because I’ve always been a player that’s facing the field,” she said. “As a midfielder half the time now my back is to half the field so I have to be a lot more aware of what’s going on.” Playing as a midfielder may have made her more

She committed to Indiana in January of her junior year, and the coaching staff has since changed, but she is still look-

ing forward to the experience of a Big Ten program. “I really like Big Ten and when I went on my visit I watched them play in practice and it just seemed like the right fit for me,” Kowalski said.

Atypical errors hurt LT softball in first loss By DAN SANTAROMITA

Recent results

dsantaromita@shawmedia.com WESTERN SPRINGS — The Lyons Township softball team had played solid defense to win its first four games of the season. That’s why the defensive lapses at Morton on Friday came as such a surprise to coach Dawn Schabacker. A key three-run error in the third inning gave the Mustangs a lead they would not relinquish in a 6-1 Morton win. The Lions received 10 strikeouts and just one walk from pitcher Ashley Koziol, who also knocked in LT’s only run with a double in the first inning, but the Lions managed just three hits off Morton pitcher Alyssa Galasso. “We had errors and we haven’t seen errors,” Schabacker said. “It’s one of those things, there’s no excuses for

it. We just had a bad game, but they took it right to us.” Entering this week’s busy schedule, which includes six games, Becky Ryckman and Stefanie D’Anna led the Lions with .438 batting averages. Koziol and junior catcher Kayla Morrissey were also hitting above .300. Koziol has also starred on the mound with a 2.10 ERA and an impressive 31 strikeouts and three walks in her first three appearances. “I’m happy with where we’re at,” Schabacker said. “I’m waiting for the weather to warm up and for us to be on a roll. These girls are not going to sit back and let this get to them. They’re going to

Following Monday’s game at Wheaton Warrenville South and Tuesday’s game at Queen of Peace, the Lions’ busy week will continue with the conference open-

er at Downers Grove North on Wednesday. LT will host neighbor Nazareth on Friday before a doubleheader on Saturday against Hinsdale South.

On Thursday, Whitney Young beat Fenwick 7-4 despite a two-hit day from Mrozek. The next day, the Friars picked up a valuable East Suburban Catholic Conference sweep against Joliet Catholic. Fenwick won 8-0 and 9-0 thanks to a big day from Mrozek, who had two hits and a shutout in Game 1 and three hits in Game 2. Nazareth Other than a blip against Glenbard East last Wednesday, the Roadrunners continued their strong start to the season. Nazareth lost to the Rams 6-0, but recovered nicely. The Roadrunners beat Morton 11-0 and West Chicago 4-0 the next two nights. Karah Ritacco went 4-for-5 with two RBIs and two runs scored against Morton. Holly Haberkorn had nine strikeouts and a shutout against West Chicago. Nazareth beat Taft 10-0 on Monday.

Morton Coach: Philip Stowers Top returners: Ashton Alexander sr. Karl Fiesta sr. Steven Fisher sr. Marcos Martinez sr. What to watch: The Mustangs got off to a 6-1 start in dual matches and have some good talent, but a tough sectional draw with Hinsdale Central and Lyons Township will make postseason success difficult. Morton has 10 senior returners that make for a deep lineup.

BASEBALL Nazareth The Roadrunners ran their season-opening winning streak to nine games after wins over Kenwood (8-1), Wheaton Academy (7-3), Gordon Tech (16-10), Stagg (8-6) and Clemente (8-2). Kyle Piotrowski had five shutout innings with seven strikeouts in the win over Wheaton Academy. Piotrowski lasted nine innings in a 10-inning 4-4 tie against Riverside Brookfield on Monday that was stopped due to darkness. Fenwick The Friars went 1-3 during a spring break trip in Orlando. They beat McQuaid Jesuit 7-2 but lost to McGill Toolen 14-1, Rancocas Valley 10-6 and Summit Country Day 2-1. St. Joseph The Chargers improved to 3-1 with an 18-2 win over Hales on Thursday. Ryan Moritz had three hits and five RBIs, and the Chargers exploded for 10 runs in the seventh inning.

GIRLS SOCCER Riverside Brookfield The Bulldogs picked up their second win of the season in a 4-1

Ashton Alexander (No. 1 singles), Marcos Martinez (No. 2 singles/ No. 1 doubles), Steven Fisher (No. 1 doubles) and Karl Fiesta (No. 1/No. 2 doubles) highlight that group. Varsity newcomers Israel Urzua and Joe Irmis will also play high up in the singles lineup. “We want to keep working hard, play our best tennis at the end of the year, and continue to develop,” said coach Phil Stowers. “Our players rarely play tennis before coming to Morton so their success is due to their dedication and hard work.” Riverside Brookfield Coach: Brennan Denny Top returners: Ryan Gradishar sr. Peter Pierdinock so. Andrew Pilewski so. Jimmy Rock sr. What to watch: A young RB team will hope to improve throughout the spring. Senior Ryan Gradishar is playing at No. 1 singles and has a 1-2 record in early season matches. win over Romeoville on April 2. Two nights later, they fell to Downers Grove North 3-1, but the week as a whole demonstrated a lot of improvement for the team. RB scored five goals in those two games after scoring just one through the first seven matches of the season. Nazareth The Roadrunners dominated three teams last week. On April 2, they thumped Elmwood Park 7-0. Maureen Culligan and Lily Franko each had two goals. On Friday they shut out Taft 8-0. Franko, a freshman, netted a hat trick. In Saturday’s East Suburban Catholic Conference win over Bishop McNamara, it was Megan Tobin collecting a hat trick. Tobin’s three goals helped Nazareth win 6-1. Fenwick The Friars continued to be one of the surprise teams of the season with two more quality wins last week. Fenwick beat crosstown-rival Oak Park-River Forest 3-2 on Thursday and knocked off Stevenson 3-2 in overtime in the first round of the Pepsi Showdown on Saturday.

BOYS VOLLEYBALL Lyons Township

Sophomore Peter Pierdinock will also be a top singles player for the Bulldogs. Andrew Pilewski and Jimmy Rock have teamed up at No. 1 doubles, but Pilewski has also seen some action at singles. RB will try to improve on last year’s sixth-place finish in the Metro Suburban Conference. Nazareth Coach: Paul Garvin Top returners: Cameron Franko sr. Tommy Gray sr. Joe Mara sr. Michael Straface sr. What to watch: After graduating just three players and returning nine seniors the Roadrunners are hoping for a strong season. Tommy Gray and Michael Straface played No. 1 doubles last year, but may split up this spring. Either way, both players are expected to anchor the team. Joe Mara and Cameron Franko are also returning starters. Seniors Tommy Herr and Brian Pollard and The Lions won their opening West Suburban Silver match 25-22, 25-21 April 2 at York. Two days later, they won a crossover match at Downers Grove South, 25-19, 25-19.

BOYS GYMNASTICS Lyons Township Chris Rediehs finished second in the all-around Friday at the Anthony J. Canino Invitational at Hinsdale Central to help the Lions to a second-place finish in the team standings. Rediehs totaled 52.650 in the all-around and the Lions scored 144.7 in the 10-team meet with all West Suburban Conference teams. Downers Grove North won the meet with a score of 149.3.

BOYS TRACK & FIELD Lyons Township The Lions won four relays Saturday at the Hinsdale Central Relays for the first outdoor meet. LT picked up first place in the 4 x 400-meter relay, long jump relay, shot put relay and the 4 x 110 shuttle hurdle. Riverside Brookfield The Bulldogs tied for first at the 46th annual Gary Johnson Bulldog Relays on Saturday. Mike Hornung

junior Kevin Saladino will be on the doubles team. Fenwick Coach: Gerard Sullivan Top returners: Jack Carey sr. Colin Fitzpatrick so. Jack Ryan sr. What to watch: The Friars return just two of the top six from last year, but expect the depth from last year to fill in the top positions without much problem. Senior Jack Ryan is a two-time state qualifier and will be a fixture at the No. 1 doubles position. Sophomore Colin Fitzpatrick will split time between partnering with Ryan and playing No. 1 singles. Fitzpatrick was at No. 2 singles last year. Jack Carey will move up from No. 3 singles to No. 2 this year. Coach Gerard Sullivan named Loyola and St. Ignatius as Fenwick’s top competition in the Chicago Catholic League, but the Friars still expect to finish in the top three in the league. was first in the shot put and David Swon won the triple jump to help rack up big points for RB. Swon was also second in the long jump. Other second-place finishers were Dan Curtin in the 1,600-meter run, the 4 x 400 relay and the 4 x 800 relay. St. Joseph Brandon Johnson placed third in the 100-meter dash at the 46th annual Gary Johnson Bulldog Relays at Riverside Brookfield. Johnson was also fourth in the high jump. Demetrius Morrow came in second in the high jump.

GIRLS TRACK & FIELD Lyons Township LT’s first outdoor meet came at the Downers Grove South Invitational on Saturday.

Coach: Bill Wham Top returners: Cuyler Burke so. Jake Elliott sr. Chris O’Reilly sr. Matt Pesch sr. Jack Wennerstrum jr. What to watch: The Lions return three state qualifiers from a top-10 team in state last year. Last year’s top singles player as a freshman, Alex Ross, is not on the team this year. Ross is competing in USTA tournaments during the season. In his place is senior Jake Elliott, who also starred as a kicker for the football team. Elliott was a state qualifier last year and won the first tournament of the season on Saturday despite not playing in the winter. Sophomore Cuyler Burke moves into the No. 2 singles role after competing on the varsity team as a freshman. Burke won the back

draw at the Libertyville Invite. Chris O’Reilly and Jack Wennerstrum will team to form the No. 1 doubles team. They played with different partners last year, but both qualified for state. Coach Bill Wham realizes Hinsdale Central is the heavy favorite to win the West Suburban Silver and is also in the same sectional as LT. Wham said the Lions’ goals are to finish second in the conference and finish top 10 in the state again.
