Clues send teams on a mad dash to St. Charles, Geneva By ASHLEY RHODEBECK arhodebeck@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES – Batavia High School freshmen Meghan Razimoff and Jenna Walsh spent Saturday afternoon at Mount St. Mary Park doling out instructions and eggs to participants of the Peapod Amazing Adventure Race. A half-hour into the clue-based event, the teens said about a dozen teams had passed through their St. Charles stop. The girls worked efficiently, explaining they wanted to be as quick as they could so they wouldn’t delay the teams of two, who were competing for a $500 first prize. “It makes me nervous,” Meghan said. Eighty teams gathered at Alley 64 in downtown St. Charles for the start of the race, eagerly opening their green clue sheets at noon. They had five hours to complete the race, which had checkpoints in St. Charles and Geneva. While some teams dashed off to the first stop, others spent several minutes solving the clues and using smartphones and maps to plot out the best course. Although teams could ask people for help and use smartphones to decode the clues, they could only travel by foot or by Pace bus. Organizers said teams using the most direct routes would travel about eight miles. “It’s best to figure out the clues, figure out the route,” race director Denise Croft said. Some racers were from out of town – some traveled from Indiana – but the locals didn’t necessarily have an advantage, Croft said, explaining she read clues to a few locals who had no idea

Assistant race director Ellen Kamps said she considered out-of-town racers when she wrote the clues. Racers just needed smartphones and good Googling skills, she said. Volunteers Natalie Grinnell and Rachel Reinecke, both Batavia High School freshmen, spent the afternoon ensuring teams did the Mount St. Mary Park task correctly, sending teams back if they took pictures next to the wrong sculpture. A pile of unbroken eggs rested nearby in the grass. “It looks very difficult,” Rachel said of the race. “I don’t know if I could do it.”

BATAVIA – Long before the first fire engine flashed its lights and let loose a siren wail, parents, grandparents and children lined the streets of Batavia for the Loyalty Day Parade on Sunday. They stood, sat on curbs or in folding chairs, on blankets with many of the children holding buckets and bags to collect the candy parade marchers would throw. As each unit of the military marched or drove past, all stood and applauded to show their appreciation. This was Carda Cudworth’s first Loyalty Day Parade. “It’s very patriotic,” Cudworth, of Oswego, said. “It’s wonderful, very exciting. Lots of children and families, a warm atmosphere, very positive. They do a very nice job.” She said her daughter, Victoria, would be marching with Emily Laughead of North Aurora, to support Emily’s cause – Emily’s Hope – which raises awareness about type 1 diabetes. Several veterans groups and their auxiliaries were represented, including Batavia’s VFW Post 1197, as well as posts from Bartlett, South Elgin and Bloomingdale. Cub Scout packs and Girl Scout troops marched between Marilyn’s Majors, clad in rose and silver sequined costumes while twirling batons and flags.

COACH SLY’S CORNER

Bulldogs, Vikings grin after bearing DH split By KEVIN DRULEY kdruley@shawmedia.com BATAVIA – Batavia baseball coach Matt Holm and Geneva counterpart Matt Hahn emerged with the same conclusion after addressing their teams Saturday afternoon. Splitting an Upstate Eight Conference River Division doubleheader “was a good day” in both men’s words, albeit for different reasons. Batavia followed a 6-3 victory in the opener with a loss by the same score in the nightcap. Still, the Bulldogs (195, 13-5 UEC River) realize they’ve been streaking and there’s no use in being greedy. “Our thing was this week to go 6-0 and get to 20 wins,” Holm said. “And we went 5-1, so I can’t complain about that.” For Geneva (14-11, 11-9) the lesson was in patience. A team that absorbed its share of early-season injuries is settling down while perhaps gaining steam as a postseason upstart one spring after the then-top-seeded Vikings bowed out in their regional opener. “We feel like we’re getting close,” Hahn said. “I think we can still play better in some areas, but I think we’re playing pretty good baseball right now, and I think that’s why you’ve seen our fortunes [change] this year.” Both sides boasted solid pitching performances and hustling attacks in the victories. Batavia opened the morning

with great energy – and even a few minutes before the scheduled 10 a.m. first pitch of Game 1. Junior first baseman Micah Coffey scored twice and drove in a run on a triple. Moments after crossing the plate for the first time in the third inning – he reached on a hit-by-pitch, stole second base, took third on a dropped third strike and scored on Robbie Bowman’s check-swing single – Coffey channeled his inner Energizer Bunny. He kept going when Jacob Piechota fouled off a pitch in the next at-bat, running down the left field line to the Batavia bullpen to retrieve it. Emilio Tenuta pitched 6 2/3 innings to get the win, exhaling when junior Austin VanKempen induced a Ben Chally flyout to left field with the bases loaded to end the game. VanKempen, whose father, John, played in the San Francisco Giants’ organization in the mid-1980s, entered after Geneva used a hit by pitch, Bobby Hess single and Dan Berendt walk to bring the potential go-ahead run to the plate. “I think I was just getting a little nervous because it was the last inning,” Tenuta said. “They were keeping up and saw me the first couple innings, so that was starting to show.” Hahn didn’t fret over his offense between games, knowing Chally’s shot wasn’t the only out that traveled right toward a Bulldogs defender. That’s why

he told the Vikings, “Do not change a single thing that you’re doing,” as they rested in the dugout. “We made a couple errors in the first game that hurt us, but I thought we ran the bases real well. At the plate, a lot of our outs were just line drives right at people,” Hahn said. “So there’s no need to change. If we were popping the ball up or hitting little dribblers or whatnot.” Geneva struck for a first-inning run against the Bulldogs’ Austin Shanahan on a Chally RBI single. Although Batavia responded with two runs in the bottom half – including a run-scoring triple from Coffey – Vikings right-hander Tony Landi calmed down and hit his spots low in the zone after that. On the flip side, Geneva reached Batavia’s Austin Shanahan for 12 hits and six runs – five earned – in 4 2/3 innings. Anthony Bragg, Luke Polishak and Hess finished with three hits apiece in the nightcap. Landi responded again after Batavia drew to within the final margin with a sixth-inning run, retiring the Bulldogs in order to finish a complete game. Not to mention what his coach soon dubbed a good day. “When the guys are making plays and I’m making my pitches, it just kind of gives me that much more confidence to attack and be aggressive in the zone and not try to pick,” Landi said. “So that’s what I’m trying to do.”

If there is one school coming out of the SCC/Metro Suburban maneuvering that Sly’s a little worried about, it’s Aurora Christian. The Eagles were small in the current SCC, but they’re really, really small now that the likes of Guerin, St. Edward and Walther Lutheran are jumping ship to the Metro Suburban. From this fox’s view, it seems like Aurora Christian was the school left standing when the music stopped in this latest version of conference musical chairs. The two-time defending 3A state champion Eagles football team can more than hold their own against the SCC big boys, but conference membership is about more than football, and there are a lot of sports at Aurora Christian that need to compete against schools close to their size to be competitive. And as great as the Eagles football team has been under Don Beebe, nothing lasts forever … how long will ACS be able to keep punching above its weight? If Aurora Christian hadn’t been so top-notch in pigskin these past several years, you wonder if they would have been one of the schools that is migrating over to the Metro Suburban. The timing is also interesting with Aurora Central Catholic switching to the MSC. A few years ago, it’d have been a no-brainer, but with programs like baseball, football and girls basketball on the upswing at ACC, parting ways with the SCC (and especially rivals Marmion and Rosary) isn’t so clear-cut. It’ll be interesting to see where things go from here. Will Marian, way up in Woodstock, feel compelled to stay with the other SCC schools? Will schools be added that are more compatible with Aurroa Christian? Wil some other conference successfully woo schools like Marmion or St. Francis? It should play out quickly, and it’ll be fascinating to watch.

dence is not there.” In Game 1, North’s Ankur Shah went the distance in the 6-2 victory. He allowed six hits and two walks while fanning seven. “I didn’t have my best stuff,” said Shah, who moved to 4-2 on the season. “I was cruising along, then I lost something. But I just trusted myself, got it back and limited the damage.” The North Stars scored three runs in the third as Thomas singled, Dennis walked and Nick Drawant was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Carson Schmitt singled in the first run, and Cory Wright and Tim Misner were hit by pitches with the bases loaded for the next two runs. Larkin touched Shah for two runs in the top of the fourth, but the North Stars responded with two in their half of the inning, knocking out Jon Jowaski as Riley Coomes had an RBI single and eventually came around to score on an RBI groundout off the bat of Drawant to increase the lead to 5-2.

SATURDAY’S PREP ROUNDUP

Burlington Central softball keeps cruising KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE BURLINGTON – Burlington Central thumped Rockford Lutheran, 21-0, in a Big Northern Conference crossover softball game Saturday. While Rockets coach Wade Maisto wasn’t about to stretch to add extra significance to the five-inning affair, he did say the game more competitive than the team’s recent blowouts. Emily Kisch and Courtni Neubauer combined on a perfect game for the Rockets, with Neubauer pitching the final four innings to get her first victory. “It was pretty brisk. A quick game,” Maisto said. “We were able to play some ball and had some plays to make. It wasn’t like we had an overwhelming strikeout total.” Central (18-1) scored 11 first-inning runs. Bekah Har-

nish finished 5 for 5 with a double, triple and three RBIs to spark an 18-hit attack.

Immaculate Conception Catholic 5, Wheaton Academy 1: At Plunkett Park in Elmhurst, Marissa Gagliano scored on Jess Bosse’s first-inning squeeze, but Wheaton Academy (4-9, 4-6 Suburban Christian Conference Gold) surrendered five unanswered runs after that.

BASEBALL Kaneland 4, Rochelle 2: At Rochelle, Kaneland (10-11, 7-5 Northern Illinois Big 12 East) inched closer to .500 behind a strong outing from Blake Sowell, who spaced two runs, eight hits, six strikeouts and a walk in six innings. Tyler Carlson and Matt Limbrunner both drove in runs for the Knights, who were out-hit, 9-5.

Aurora Christian 6, Guerin 2: At Aurora, Ian Livingston went 4 for 4 and scored three

runs for ACS (10-13, 4-8 SCC Blue). Freshman R.D. Lutze struck out five and allowed a run in four innings.

BOYS TRACK Mooseheart relays: A t Mooseheart, Aurora Christian’s Jonah Walker won the shot put (46-9) and discus (140-6 ½), while Mooseheart’s Oumaru Abdulahi was a double-winner in the long jump (21-½) and high jump (6-4). The Red Ramblers’ Wal Khat also was a double-winner, taking the 800 and 1,600 meter titles as Mooseheart won eight of 15 events.

GIRLS TRACK Mooseheart relays: A t Mooseheart, Chronicle-area winners included Aurora Christian’s Natasha Brown (long jump) and Rosary’s Andrea Perez (400). Aurora Central Catholic captured the 4x800 relay title.

ST. CHARLES – The Larkin baseball team entered its Saturday doubleheader against St. Charles North with just 12 players, only five of them pitchers. So after the Royals used two pitchers in a Game 1 loss, they needed their No. 1 pitcher to eat up some innings in the nightcap. And that is exactly what Brayden Royse did in the 4-1 complete-game victory, earning his first victory and spoling the host North Stars’ bid for an Upstate Eight Conference River Division sweep. “He’s our No. 1, the guy we want on the hill in clutch situations,” Royals coach Matt Esterino said. “When he is in the zone, he is tough. Mentally, he is as strong as they come. He will challenge you and not give in.” North (12-12, 8-9 UEC River) struck out just once in the nightcap after winning the opener, 6-3. The North Stars

opened the Game 2 scoring in the third inning as Ryan Thomas doubled and scored on a Jack Dennis double. Larkin (7-14, 4-13) answered in the fifth, as Rob Bond singled in Tyler Kalusa and Dan Lenz, who both singled ahead of Chris Guzeman’s walk. Larkin added two more in the inning on an error. The North Stars committed four errors, all in the infield, in Game 2, helping to knock out starting and losing pitcher Joe Barsanti. “When you have more errors than hits, you are not going to win games,” North Stars coach Todd Genke said. “Our infield is having a really rough time. There are plays they make when I say, ‘They’re getting it, getting some confidence.’ “Then the next ball hit to them they look like they haven’t fielded a ball in weeks. I am really at a loss [to explain] our infield play. We have moved guys around, given guys opportunities. But for whatever reason, the confi-

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips lows through on her impulse to boycott all family events, she will be cutting her nose off to spite her face. On those occasions when it’s not possible to attend extended family gatherings, celebrating with immediate family seems like a sensible solution. Or consider hosting the celebration yourselves so you can set the party time. Your wife may have self-esteem issues that need to be addressed if she’s taking this personally. As a nurse caring for the most fragile of infants, she’s doing important work that should be respected. Please tell her to remind herself of that fact any time she feels “unimportant” because her efforts make the difference between life and death. Dear Abby: I got pregnant by a man I’ll call “Ryan,” who was just a fling. When I told him, he told me to have an abortion. He even had a friend of his call, offer to pay for it and drive me. Instead, I decided to “abort” Ryan from my life. I never told him when our baby was born. Part of me feels bad because I think every child should know his/her father and family members. Another man has been willing to step up and be a daddy for my child. Should I even bother to let Ryan know? Should I give him a chance to rise to the occasion or keep things the way they are? – Living My Life In Indiana Dear Living Your Life: This is really a question you should ask a lawyer, just in case Ryan has already risen as much as he intends to. Whether or not someone has stepped up to be your baby’s daddy, Ryan has a financial obligation to that child. • Write Dear Abby at www.dearabby.com.

Dear Abby: My granddaughter and her boyfriend live in another state, and I love hearing from her. However, when I call her, she always puts me on speaker phone, which I find rude. I have never met her boyfriend and don’t feel he should be in on everything I may talk to my granddaughter about. I think she’s forming a bad habit. Am I wrong for feeling this way? – Private Grandma In Florida Dear Private: I don’t think so. Not every word that comes out of your mouth should be community property. The next time it happens, all you have to do is say, “Honey, take me off the speaker, please.” Dear Abby: My wife, “Carlene,” is a neonatal ICU nurse who is required to work a certain number of holidays. For the past 12 years, her family has feigned attempting to accommodate her schedule and then planned holiday events at the same exact time and place as the year before. They have ignored repeated explanations and don’t seem to care if we come or not. For example, last Thanksgiving they once again made a big deal about everyone sending their schedules via email. We responded that Carlene would have to work until 3 p.m. Shortly after, we received a call from the host, who said: “We know you can’t make it, but the celebration will be at 12 sharp! Maybe we’ll see you some other time.” Abby, my wife feels like she is unimportant to everyone. She plans to stop attending all family events and celebrate only with me and our daughter. While that would be easier, I know it probably isn’t the best solution. Should I support her decision, or is there some answer I haven’t thought of yet? – Let Down In Texas Dear Let Down: Your wife should make no decisions about future celebrations while she’s angry.

The bidding helps you plan the defense

SOLUTION

CELEBRITY CIPHER

Oscar Wilde said, “It is only an auctioneer who can equally and impartially admire all schools of art.” It is only a successful bridge player who listens carefully to the auction and uses the information to guide his defense. In this example, how should West hope to defeat four spades after he leads the club ace? North’s sequence, Stayman followed by the jump to three no-trump over two hearts, guaranteed four spades. So, South corrected to four spades. Note that the defenders could have taken five immediate club tricks against three no-trump. Many inexperienced defenders cannot wait to cash winners. They would take the club king about one nanosecond after winning the first trick with the ace. Then they would look around to decide what to do next – too late. Their best move would be to feign a sudden illness and to flee the premises! When dummy comes down with three hearts, West should realize that his partner has a singleton. So, there are two ways to win by shifting to a heart at trick two: Partner might have either the singleton heart ace or the spade ace. As you can see, this defense defeats the contract. East wins the first (or second) round of trumps, puts West on lead with his carefully preserved club king, and receives the contract-killing heart ruff. As the bidding progresses, mentally log what information it imparts. And slow down your play: there are no prizes – except booby – for speed.
