RIVERSIDE – An Amtrak train struck a vehicle at 2:39 p.m. Thursday on the Burlington Northern Santa Fe tracks at the Harlem Avenue crossing. The driver, Cathy J. Griesmeyer, 67, of the 1400 Block of Elizabeth Street in Crete, was conscious and alert when she was taken to MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn, said Riverside Police Chief Thomas Weitzel. A small dog that was in the car was also treated for minor injuries. Griesmeyer was later cited by police for unlawful stopping at a gate crossing. Amtrak was not scheduled to stop at the Harlem Avenue station, Weitzel said, and was traveling 71 mph at the

time of the crash. The woman attempted to back up off the tracks but was blocked by a jam of cars behind her. She did however, manage to back up far enough to clear the driver’s side door of the vehicle, confining most of the damage to its front end. Her ability to back up slightly, likely saved her life, Weitzel said. Amtrak officials said there were no reported injuries to the train’s 11-member crew or its 113 passengers. The train was bound from Chicago to San Francisco. Weitzel said it’s not uncommon for drivers to stop on the railroad crossing when traffic is heavy. He strongly warned residents to wait to pull onto the tracks until the area in front of them is fully clear.

answer at the door. Sikorski was later surrendered to police by his father. According to police, Sikorski, a former student of the high school, gave a full confession and told investigators he called in the tip because he was upset about a drug rip-off that had taken place within the past several weeks in Brookfield, but was not reported to police. Investigators said Sikorski told them he wanted to get revenge for the rip-off and called in the tip to police, which named the suspect in the drug rip-off as the shooter so that he would be arrested. Riverside police credited responding area police departments, including the Brookfield Police Department, with working to ensure the school would be safe to open on Monday and for assisting in lockdown efforts Friday. Despite the arrest, Riverside Police Chief Tom Weitzel said police will be at the school on Monday to ensure a safe start to the school day. In addition to the charges, Weitzel said the department will seek reimbursement from Sikorski for the cost of the police response at the school, which will be determined at a later date. Sikorski appeared in bond court Saturday and bond was set at $75,000.

An Amtrak train bound for San Francisco struck a vehicle Thursday afternoon at Harlem Avenue in Riverside.

RIVERSIDE – A Brookfield man was arrested about 8 p.m. Friday and later charged after he allegedly called in a fake tip to the Brookfield Police Department that led Riverside Brookfield High School to be put on a soft lockdown for several hours Friday. Riverside police charged Nicholas J. Sikorski, 18, of the 3800 block of Blanchan Avenue in Brookfield, with two counts of felony disorderly conduct for calling in a fake police report that required a massive police response, according to a news release. On Friday, a tip was called into the Brookfield Police Department warning that a shooting would take place at Riverside Brookfield High School. According to police, the caller named a specific person as the shooter. Brookfield and Riverside police then worked with the high school to put the school into a soft lockdown about 1:30 p.m. In a soft lockdown, students, staff, parents and visitors are not allowed inside or outside the high school building without a police escort and all external doors to the school are locked. At the end of the school day, police officers from Brookfield, Riverside, Lyons, North

Riverside, the Brookfield Zoo and the Cook County Sheriff’s Department coordinated on an effort to release student on time. Nicholas J. Students were Sikorski cleared to leave at 3:30 p.m. Riverside police also increased their security presence at the nighttime basketball games at the school on Friday, police said. Police located the individual named in the initial call as the shooter at his grandmother’s home in Maywood and were able to determine he had no participation in the incident, police said. Police said the alleged shooter was a former student of the high school who now lived in Maywood. Police reported they were made aware of posts on the social networking site Facebook and determined that there had been a disagreement over a drug rip-off. Audio recordings of the call were played for officers who said they recognized Sikorski as the caller due to prior arrests and encounters with him. The alleged shooter was also able to confirm the caller’s voice as Sikorski, according to police. Riverside police attempted to pick Sikorski at his address in Brookfield, but there was no

Commissioner Tobolski celebrates ban on e-cigarettes to minors By MATTHEW HENDRICKSON

mhendrickson@shawmedia.com

Cook County Commissioner Jeff Tobolski, D-McCook, said he was proud of a vote today that unanimously passed an ordinance amendment prohibiting the sale of electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, from being sold to minors in suburban Cook County. “These e-cigarettes come in all sorts of flavors – bubblegum, cherry ... and they’re being placed near the candy,” Tobolski said after the vote. E-cigarettes are battery-operated devices that heat nicotine, additives and water into vapor, which are then inhaled by the user, similar to cigarettes. The smokeless devices are marketed as smoking secession products, for the user’s ability to smoke indoors and as a healthier alternative to tobacco cigarettes. Tobolski said he became

aware of a “loophole” that allowed the products to be sold to customers under the age of 18 by a friend in the Cook County Department of Public Health. The amendment will pull e-cigarettes behind the counter with tobacco products and will require retailers to verify the age of a customer before allowing them to purchase the product. The amendment will not change rules in unincorporated Cook County, according to Tobolski’s spokesman Kevin Fanning. Tobolski, who has a middle school-age daughter, said he proposed the amendment out of concern that kids would begin smoking earlier because of perceptions that e-cigarettes are safer than cigarettes. A Los Angeles Times story published in January that examined the health effects of e-cigarettes largely found the products were still too new to the market to re-

veal definitive results. Most studies have found that impact of e-cigarette vapor on a person’s health is minimal, especially when compared to cigarettes. Tobolski said he still doesn’t see much of a difference and said the amendment could be used as a starting place for further regulation of e-cigarettes, such as a ban on using them indoors, as the Chicago City Council recently passed. “It’s all a low-level nicotine delivery system,” Tobolski said. “[The amendment] let’s us establish this as a place we can work from.” Tobolski added that, regardless of the health effects and marketing, his main concern was that use of the products could lead kids to smoking regular cigarettes. “Regardless of their marketing, this is a way to continue the addiction,” Tobolski said.

RIVERSIDE – Heroin was suspected in a recent DUI arrest in Riverside after police found two people asleep in a car in traffic Feb. 18, according to police reports. Police charged Ivana Tasevska, 21, of the zero to 100 block of Statford Court, Indian Head Park, for driving under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia and numerous traffic citations after finding her asleep in the driver’s seat of a car running and in-gear in a southbound lane of Harlem Avenue at Addison Road. Police were called at 2:03 p.m. about a car stopped in traffic where the driver and passenger appeared to be asleep. When an officer arrived, both occupants were found asleep and the officer attempted to wake them before calling paramedics. When attempting to revive the driver, later identified as Tasevska, the officer noticed a white powder on her lap. When she awoke, police said she attempted to brush

the substance off. Police said Tasevska was confused, spoke with slurred speech and was in a dazed state. She was transported Ivana to MacNeal Hos- Tasevska pital in Berwyn, as well as her passenger, who was treated for a drug overdose. At the hospital, Tasevska was placed under arrest for DUI of drugs. During the course of their investigation, police learned Tasevska had just ingested heroin before police arrived. Police said she stated she had also taken methadone, Xanax and crack cocaine in the previous 24 hours. Police said the two rented a motel room in Lyons an hour before being stopped. They traveled to Chicago, bought heroin and snorted it while stopped by a freight train. No drug charges were pursued as the heroin had been ingested by the time officers arrived, police said.

RIVERSIDE – A Riverside Brookfield High School student was charged with one count of aggravated assault after he allegedly threatened a teacher at the school Feb. 21. Fard C. Fard Chevez Johnson Johnson, 18, of the 2200 block of South 17th Avenue in North Riverside, was taken to the Riverside Police Department by his parents Feb. 22 and was interviewed. Because the alleged threat occurred on school property, Riverside police pursued a felony charge against Johnson, according to Police Chief Tom Weitzel. According to police reports, Johnson was seen in the hallway of the school by a teacher yelling and swearing. When the teacher, who did not know the student, approached Johnson and told him to stop, John-

son became angry and backed the teacher into lockers in the hallway and began yelling aggressively. Another teacher was called, who asked for Johnson’s name, and was refused, police said. School security later identified the student as Johnson, but he had already left the school’s campus that day. Later, as teachers were leaving the school, the teacher who originally stopped to talk with Johnson reported seeing him get into a vehicle and made a throat cutting motion with his finger directed at the teacher, police said. Johnson was taken into custody and to a bond hearing Feb. 18, police said. Police said Johnson was out on bond for felony criminal defacement of school property after he was arrested in October for his alleged role in vandalizing the school as part of a traditional Homecoming prank that got out of control.

Riverside board discusses upcoming sewer projects By NICK SAMUEL

msleditorial@shawmedia.com RIVERSIDE – The village of Riverside is a step closer to implementing eight improvement projects to the town’s sewer system. The board discussed the improvement projects at their meeting Thursday, which are aimed at increasing performance, reducing the frequency of flooding and separating sanitary and storm combined sewer systems. Sanitary sewers drain sewage from houses while storm

8NEWS BRIEF

Police chief updates board on coyotes, crime

RIVERSIDE – Riverside board members briefly discussed coyote sightings and the village’s crime index at a village meeting Thursday.

sewers drain excess rain and groundwater from streets. Orion Galey, senior project manager for Christopher B. Burke Engineering, said these improvement projects stem from the company’s comprehensive sewer study, which focused on examining the limitations of Riverside’s existing sewer systems. The study, which began in July, was conducted after the village received complaints from residents about floods and basement backups. The main flooding issue facing the village is caused

by sanitary backup in the combined sewer systems, the study concluded. Riverside has four major sewer systems, which are the Maplewood, Longcommon, East Combined and Central Combined watersheds. The minor sewer systems are the Railroad, Scottswood and Olmstead watersheds. If the board approves the eight projects, which range from $64,000 to $2.8 million, Riverside can implement the improvements throughout the next 10 years. The projects include the

Railroad Watershed Proposed Outlet, Scottswood Sewer Separation Plan, Maplewood Watershed Proposed Relief Sewer, Longcommon Sewer Separation and Storage Vault Plan, Nuttall Sewer Separation Plan, Rear Yard Storm Sewer Connections, Olmsted Watershed Improvement Plan and the Olmstead Sewer Separation Plan. Galey said the next step is to meet with village board members to discuss a five to 10 year capital improvement plan. “It all depends on how

much funding Riverside can get to complete these projects,” Galey said. “Once we know how much money the village has, then we can come up with a year-by-year plan.” Galey said both Riverside and Christopher B. Burke Engineering will approach the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago, an agency that protects businesses and homes from flood damage, to see if funding is available. He added they’ll also look for grants from other agencies.

The police department reported it purchased hand-held air horns for use in all squad cars to scare off coyotes, Police Chief Tom Weitzel said. Weitzel said the Safe Environment Commission is also working directly

with police to conduct a coyote public awareness program in late April or May. In 2013, there were 383 coyote sighting reports. Weitzel also touched on the village’s crime rate at the meet-

ing. According to Weitzel, Riverside has an overall low crime rate, and as such, it only takes one or two reported crimes to show a substantial increase or decrease in the village’s overall crime rate.

Under the Uniform Crime Report rules for the Illinois State Police, Riverside had a 21.3 percent increase in reportable crimes in 2013 compared to the crime rate in 2012.

Community reading program gears up The Riverside, North Riverside and Brookfield Public Libraries, along with Brookfield Zoo, are gearing up for this year’s On the Same Page community reading initiative with nature as the spotlight. From March 1 through May 3, On the Same Page 2014: Reading, Communities and Nature, promises to deliver another year of compelling reading along with discussions, activities for children, art and poetry contests and more related programming. 2014’s featured book, COMMUNITY “Flight Behavior” by Barbara VOICE Kingsolver, is a provocative Kimberly novel set in Appalachia that Coughran examines modern day rural life, our closest relationships, and climate change. Kingsolver brilliantly leads readers to question their own truths and advocates for the fine art of listening. All three libraries will host discussions of “Flight Behavior” – be on the lookout for discussion dates in respective library newsletters, in the Resource Guide or onthesamepage. info. Included within the Reading, Communities and Nature umbrella of this year’s initiative are the many “companion reads” and nature-related programs organized by the libraries. Some libraries will host discussions of the various companion reads and even author events. The North Riverside Library will organize a discussion of Bill Bryson’s “A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail” at 7 p.m. April 8, and the Brookfield Library will host author Tom Montgomery Fate to discuss his book “Cabin Fever” at 7 p.m. April 29. Residents of the Riverside, North Riverside and Brookfield communities are encouraged to attend the varied programming offered at any of the three participating libraries. The Riverside library will host renowned Landscaper Roy Diblik at 7 p.m. March 13 to discuss and sign his “Living Healthy in the Garden” book, while North Riverside library will teach attendees how to create a garden habitat that attracts butterflies year-round at 6:30 p.m. March 19. The Brookfield library will offer a Community Gardens program at 7 p.m. April 10 that covers the role community gardening has played from the time of Victory Gardens during the World War II era to modern day community gardens. On the Same Page 2014 will wrap up May 3, with a finale at Brookfield Zoo. Weather permitting, all are welcome to gather at the zoo’s Nature Stage at noon for a presentation by author and Better Homes & Gardens blogger Shawna Coronado.

Kimberly Coughran is director of the Brookfield Public Library.

Riverside Brookfield’s Paul Sitkiewicz looks to pass Feb. 14 against Glenbard South. The Bulldogs have won 13 consecutive conference titles.

The other schools in the Metro Suburban Conference must wish that the Riverside Brookfield boys basketball team would take a year off. The bad news for them is that the Bulldogs aren’t going anywhere. With just two seniors this season, RB just collected their 13th consecutive conference title. That’s sustained excellence to make any community proud. Lyons Township High School’s radio station, WLTL 88.1 FM, ran its 32nd annual Rock-A-Thon fundraising event. To encourage donations, students pulled outlandish stunts on the high school’s TV station. It must’ve worked because the fundraiser raised $24,011 in a single weekend. The proceeds will go to renovating the south campus studios and upgrading technology. That’s a lot of dough for 88.1 hours of work.

8LETTERS Calls for early education support and funding To the Editor: Is early education worth the costs? As police chief, critical investments in quality early childhood programs merit the time in the spotlight they’ve enjoyed recently in Illinois and nationally because of the solid and compelling research showing a myriad of positive

outcomes for individual children, and for society at large. Let’s not forget, though, that our budget woes in Illinois have eliminated early learning opportunities for about 20,000 young children. Across the Chicago area, and in many other communities throughout Illinois, 3 and 4-year-old children are being turned away from state preschool programs.

That’s a self-defeating guarantee that too many kids will miss out on the help they need to enter kindergarten prepared for success in school and life. From the seat I occupy, it also means public safety and crime-prevention efforts will suffer substantially. As a police chief, I know the path leading to crime and incarceration often begins in

children’s earliest years, when they start school without basic skills – but with problematic behaviors that make it difficult to thrive inside and outside the classroom. When they fall behind, they too often stay there. Too many drop out of high school. A high-quality early education, however, helps kids stay in school and out of trouble. Plenty of research demonstrates how that happens. Kids who have benefited from high-quality preschool are significantly more likely than nonparticipants to graduate, and far less likely to be arrested for a violent crime,

become chronic offenders or land in prison. I recently joined with over 150 law enforcement leaders who are members of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids Illinois in calling on the governor and General Assembly to protect and strengthen early learning efforts in the new state budget they’ll soon begin crafting. In the details of that emerging budget plan, we’ll see answers to the question, “How much do we value our children, and the safety and stability of our communities?” Chief Tom Weitzel Riverside Police Chief

Fleck and UIncom h l i c h h, , LTD. li ncomee Tax Se Serrvice & Accou counntants Deducting Mileage on your 2013 Tax Return

Did you drive for charity? If so, you can deduct 14¢ for every mile you drove. If your medical expenses exceed 10% of your income, you may want to calculate a mileage deduction. Medical miles for 2013 are calculated at 24¢ per mile. If you drove for business purposes, the situation is a little more complicated: First decide which miles qualify. Use the following three scenarios to determine how many miles you can deduct: Keep in mind the following statement: In general, commuting is not deductible. If you have an office or regular place of business outside your home, you may not deduct miles commuting to and from work or to your first or from your last stop, but you may deduct mileage to drive to a temporary work place (less than one year’s duration) and mileage to and from different work locations during the day. If you have an office in your home that qualifies for a home office deduction, all of your business-related mileage is deductible. If you work out of your home but do not qualify for the home office deduction, the distance between home and your first stop and between your last stop and home are nondeductible commuting miles. You should carefully plan to have your first and last stops close to home to maximize the mileage deduction. A trip to the bank, post office, or a nearby supplier can help increase deductible business miles. Once you have determined which miles to count, you need to decide whether to use the standard mileage rate or actual expenses.

FREE

1 Hour Tax Consultation For New Clients

The standard mileage rate for qualified business use for 2013 is 56.5¢ per mile. (.56¢ for 2014) Don’t forget to record the year-end odometer reading if you are planning on a business mileage deduction. Which method is best? In general, the standard method works best if your business miles are high or your vehicle is economical to run. The actual expense method works best if your vehicle weighs over 6000 pounds, is costly to run, or you do not have that many miles in total.

Let the experts at Fleck & Uhlich help you determine your mileage deduction when we prepare your return, just ask for details during our initial in-person tax interview.

There are no required core courses, just a requirement that you earn 64 credits. So no matter which of our many courses you pick to meet those credits, you’re on track.” That means that if you are interested in medical administration or hospital work, you can choose courses in Medical Spanish, Medical Terminology and Computer Software. Planning a career in sports and fitness, how about adding courses in Sports and Performance Nutrition, Kinesiology, or Exercise Physiology? If you are looking for a place in research or laboratory work, you might choose courses in Research Methods and Statistics, or Epidemiology. If you want to learn more about how the brain works, NUHS offers Biopsychology and Neuroscience. “Most of our students are interested in nutrition,” Dr. Swenson says. “That’s why NUHS has six separate courses in nutrition and food science available in the BS program.” NUHS is a primary destination for those seeking a professional career in natural health care. Originally founded in 1906 as a single purpose chiropractic college, National’s academic programs now encompass chiropractic medicine, naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, oriental medicine, massage therapy, and more. The best part of earning your bachelor’s degree at National University is that you’ll be taught by many of the same faculty who teach in the professional degree programs, and you’ll use the graduate-level facilities of one of the world’s top universities specializing in natural medicine. NUHS boasts an outstanding library of 13,000+ volumes devoted to health science, a cadaver-based gross anatomy laboratory, as well as an on-campus student clinic where you can take advantage of free health services. NUHS’ beautiful 35-acre Lombard campus is conveniently located in suburban Chicago, and offers on-campus housing, financial aid counseling, a student fitness center, and several student social and professional networking organizations.

usy adults need to make the most of their time. Work and family commitments keep down time to a minimum, so taking on the additional load of a college student is a big decision. They need a program that makes the most of their time. Courses that are directly applicable to the career, and partnerships with students who take their college experience seriously, and have similar goals. With that in mind, Northwood University’s DuPage campus in Glen Ellyn location offers an Adult Degree Program, which gives students the opportunity to pursue their education while maintaining the flexibility they need to balance family, work and school. “Northwood offers evening, weekend or online formats, as well as innovative options like our ‘3+1’ degree program, which allows students the opportunity to complete three years of coursework at partnership institutions

like College of DuPage and Harper College, before completing their final year at Northwood University,” said Ann Marie Rosen, regional development manager. The Northwood University student generally arrives with prior college credits from another university or community college. Many have been out of college for a while or took a break to focus on their career and family. They also have some students who are just beginning their university education. The Glen Ellyn Adult Degree Program Center offers a variety of degrees in both hybrid (a blend of face-to-face and online) and completely online formats. Classes are designed in partnership with industry specialists and advisory boards and are taught by experts who are active in the business world. Along with its Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Management and Marketing, the Glen Ellyn campus also offers

seven fully online degree programs including aftermarket management, automotive marketing management, health care management, marketing, entrepreneurship, management and finance as well as an online Masters of Science in Organizational Leadership. Northwood students work with one advisor from application all the way to graduation, assisting them with registration, academic advising, financial aid and ordering books. “With classes in eight-week and weekend formats, students can complete two or more courses in the same 16-weeks it takes traditional students to complete one class,” she says. Students also have the opportunity to earn credit for work and military experience. One student earned 27 credits for her prior work experience, Rosen said. “This made a tremendous impact on the quality of her life by enabling her to complete her degree faster and with substantial savings on top of it.”

Restaurant reviews

Get a homestyle meal at Bulldog Ale House CAROL STREAM – Sometimes you just want a homestyle meal, a plethora of beer options, and a classy atmosphere to possibly take in a game. Bulldog Ale House takes the concept of a neighborhood sports pub and combines it with a full-service dining room. The bar area is partitioned off from the diners, meaning you can feel free to bring your family for dinner and not have to fret about any sports fans’ exuberance spoiling your meal. On a recent visit, I opted for one of the few seats not in direct view of a TV, primarily because it was a slow night in the sporting world. That was a good thing, because it allowed me to focus on the food. My companion, not much of a sports fan, was indifferent to the televised display, but had a great time regardless. Located in the Fountains at Town Center subdivision just off Lies Road in Carol Stream, Bulldog Ale House could, at first glance, be mistaken for a local version of an Applebee’s, but that’s not true at all. There’s nothing kitschy about Bulldog, just a clean, nicely decorated and well-maintained eatery with a focus on food and beer. Wanting to get a sense of what’s offered, we started out with the “super grande platter” of mozzarella sticks, chicken wings, chicken tenders and warm pretzels. As mozzarella sticks were apparently in short supply that night, my dining companion was delighted at the chance to substitute mini corn dogs instead. Served with a variety of dipping sauces, it could easily serve as a meal for two all on its own. We ordered entrees nonetheless, knowing we’d end up taking most of the meal home for leftovers – you can’t very well review a restaurant off a single appetizer. I selected the beef Stroganoff, a childhood favorite of mine that can be excellent when made well and terrible when not. In this case,

Bulldog Ale House is just off Lies Road in Carol Stream. There are locations in Roselle and New Lenox, as well.

They’ve got all (again, topped with ice cream, it was terrific. Strips of skirt steak are sautéed with fresh garlic and mushrooms, then combined with red wine and brown sauce over fettuccine. Add a dollop of sour cream and the dish is complete. If I hadn’t been so full from the appetizer, I easily could have polished it off; instead, it made for a terrific lunch the next day. My companion was similarly stuffed from the appetizer, and selected the pot

roast over the pot pie, reasoning that the pot pie likely wouldn’t reheat as well. The pot roast is cooked in a red ale gravy with carrots, red onions and celery, and served with garlic mashed potatoes. Not usually a fan of cooked carrots, my companion enjoyed every morsel, proclaiming the various flavors complemented each other perfectly. Bulldog Ale House offers 32 beers on draft and 22 in bottles at the Carol Stream

the standard varieties you’d expect at any bar, and some more esoteric brands, such as Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse, Half Acre Daisy Cutter and Shock Top Belgian White. If you enjoy a draft brew, there’s probably something here for you. As you might’ve guessed, we didn’t have room for dessert, but would’ve been interested in the giant chocolate chip cookie (topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate syrup) or

whipped cream and chocolate syrup). But then, who’s going to make it as far as dessert when the appetizer and meal portions are so tasty and generous? Maybe if we just split an entree …

“I loved playing on varsity. I’ve become such a different player from the beginning of the season to the end.” Samantha Bloom

Riverside Brookfield freshman Dabney, who led RB with 22 points against Kenwood, also is expected back. Of the 55 points RB scored against Kenwood, 53 were scored by expected returners. “I loved playing on varsity,” Bloom said. “I’ve become such a different player from the beginning of the season to the end. I can shoot better. I know how to help pick the team up. If that was a game last year, I would have been crying. I would have been out of the game, upset, mad at everyone, but I’m learning to cope with how we play as a team, and they’ve taught me so much because I’m older.” Bloom proved to be a breakout talent with big potential, and she’s not the only rookie on the roster in the same situation. Till said the success the freshmen trio had was hard to believe. “To get what we’ve gotten out of Dana, Samantha and Lindsay at their age and their inexperience, no, absolutely not,” Till said. “Could it have been better? Yes, but if you would have said, Bill Ackerman - backerman@shawmedia.com ‘Would you take 25-7?’ Riverside Brookfield freshman center Dana Rettke shoots in a game against Westmont earlier this season. the season, I would have said, Rettke is part of a young core that could help lead the Bulldogs to success next season. ‘All day long.’ ”

BSL

RIVERSIDE – At the beginning of the season, Riverside Brookfield girls basketball coach Dallas Till would have taken a 25-7 record, no questions asked. That’s where RB wound up, but after the season ended, it still left a frustrating feeling. The Bulldogs had the chance to do more. The 69-55 loss to Kenwood in the regional final Thursday closed out a surprisingly successful season for a young Bulldog squad. The Broncos utilized impressive athleticism and constant full-court pressure to knock RB out of the playoffs. “I think it was more about them tonight than it was about us,” Till said. “They’re super athletic. I knew that coming in. We prepared for it. We knew it was coming. They were playing at a different speed tonight.” There were eight lead changes in the first half, but Kenwood closed the half on a 10-1 run to take a 35-28 lead into the break. RB got within four at 38-34 midway through the third quarter but got no closer. The loss exposed some weaknesses the Bulldogs will have to work on for next year. “We struggled with their press,” freshman guard Samantha Bloom said. “They were all over us. We’re not physical enough. I think next year we will come out and we will be ready.” The freshman, who led RB in scoring this season and put in 18 points in the regional final, despite a self-described off shooting night, is part of a young core that has a bright future. RB loses just one starter, guard Caroline Waas. Freshman center Dana Rettke and guard Lindsay Hoyd should be even better with a year of varsity experience. Junior forward Janae

RB swimming rides record-setting performances to state By DAN SANTAROMITA

dsantaromita@shawmedia.com OAK PARK – Saturday was a day to remember for Riverside Brookfield’s boys swimming program. The Bulldogs not only won the first sectional in program history but broke six schools records and even set a new pool record at Fenwick, a pool that has plenty of history. In all, RB qualified 10 entries to the state meet, including all three relays, to win the Fenwick sectional. “[Winning the sectional] was a goal we set for ourselves

The 200 freestyle relay team of Tim Somers, Christian Hernandez, Anthony Colon and Risley enter the state meet with the fifth-fastest qualifying time. They won the sectional race, as did the 400 freestyle relay (Somers, Hernandez, Garza, Risley). Also qualifying individually were Somers (50 freestyle), Dominic Rosa (100 breaststroke) and divers Simon Kritikos and Mac Catrambone. Fridrych said Rosa, a junior, qualifying was

the surprise of the day for RB. He set a new school record in the 100 breaststroke. Fridrych said the progress the program has shown in recent years is due to multiple factors. “We’ve been building the program [through a feeder system], and it’s also a good group of kids,” he said. The coach said the goal at state is to get medals. Risley has a good chance in both of his individual events, and the 200 and 400 freestyle relays represent the team’s best chances for allstate finishes.

Morton

Class: 4A Regional: Morton Sectional: Bartlett Seed: No. 4 First game: 6 p.m. Tuesday vs.

Riverside Brookfield

Class: 4A Regional: Elk Grove Sectional: Bartlett Seed: No. 7 First game: 8 p.m. Tuesday. vs.

No. 10 Wheaton North or No. 23. Willowbrook Outlook: Despite an undefeated record in the Metro Suburban Conference, the Bulldogs have been inconsistent in nonconference play. Entering Tuesday’s game at Providence, the Bulldogs had a 7-6 record out of conference. Still, they aren’t a team that opponents will look forward to facing because RB presents a matchup problem for almost any team. The Bulldogs have more height than just about any other team in the section-

Erica Benson - ebenson@shawmedia.com

Riverside Brookfield’s Daniko Jackson passes the ball during a Feb. 7 game against Timothy Christian. After winning their 13th consecutive conference title, the Bulldogs will look to claim a regional title in the postseason.

Playoff facts

1. 2.

St. Joseph has won 29 regionals under coach Gene Pingatore. Morton has posted a winning record every year since 2003 but has won just two regionals. This is the first winning season for Lyons Township since the Lions went 26-3 and won a regional in 2010-11. Riverside Brookfield has won 13 conference titles and three regional titles in coach Tom McCloskey’s 13-year tenure. Nazareth last won a regional title in 1991.

al and have a pair of prolific scorers in seniors Jack VandeMerkt and Will Kincanon. Likely regional semifinal opponent Wheaton North is a balanced offensive team led by senior guards Andrew Slivinski and Matt Biegalski. Proviso East is the favorite in the regional. That would be a speed versus size matchup thanks to the Pirates’ press.

Lyons Township

Class: 4A Regional: Addison Trail

Sectional: Bartlett Seed: No. 8 First game: 7 p.m. Wednesday,

March 5, vs. No. 9 Hoffman Estates or No. 24 Fenton Outlook: The Lions have struggled lately against tough competition, finishing with an even 6-6 record in the West Suburban Silver after starting 4-2. A season-ending injury to Chris Hester during the holiday tournament has hampered the Lions a bit in recent games. Guard Harrison Niego still leads the way, and fellow junior Jaquan Phipps has filled into Hester’s role. The top seed in the regional and the sectional, York beat the Lions three times, including an overtime game in La Grange on Feb. 1. The prospect of a fourth meeting might make the Lions a bit sick, but after coming incredibly close in the last meeting, LT could be looking forward to a chance to prove they can beat York. In order to get to that game, the Lions will likely have to go through No. 9 seed Hoffman Estates.

Proviso West

Class: 4A Regional: Morton Sectional: Addison Trail Seed: No. 20

First game: 6 p.m. Monday vs.

No. 13 Glenbard West Outlook: The Panthers went just 2-10 in the West Suburban Silver and will face off against Glenbard West in the first round. In two regular season meetings against the Hilltoppers, the Panthers won 58-55 in Glen Ellyn but lost the home game 60-53.

St. Joseph

Class: 3A Regional: St. Joseph Sectional: Westinghouse Seed: No. 2 First game: 7 p.m. Tuesday vs.

No. 15 Little Village or No. 18 Wells. Outlook: Joe’s shared the Catholic League North title and took fourth at the CCL tournament over the weekend. The talented Chargers, which include at least three potential Division I recruits in junior guards Jordan Ash and Glynn Watson and sophomore forward Nick Rakocevic, host a regional. They could see Fenwick, which they just lost to 60-54 at the CCL tournament, in a sectional semifinal.

Fenwick

Class: 3A Regional: Farragut

Sectional: Westinghouse Seed: No. 3 First game: 7 p.m. Tuesday vs.

No. 14 VOISE Academy or No. 19 Rauner Prep Outlook: The Friars have competed in a strong year in the Chicago Catholic League. Fenwick was 8-3 in the Catholic North, good for fourth in the league, and took third in the CCL tournament that concluded over the weekend. The return of Northwestern-bound senior Scott Lindsey during the second half of the season has provided a boost. The Friars will travel to Farragut for the regional and could face the hosts in a regional final.

Nazareth

Class: 3A Regional: Nazareth Sectional: Westinghouse Seed: No. 9 First game: 7 p.m. Tuesday

vs. No. 8 Urban Prep Charter West Outlook: The Roadrunners had a big overhaul to the roster this year. Despite a mix of youth and inexperience, Naz has managed a winning record against a tough schedule. Seniors Michael Brooks, Chris Swade and Kevin Connelly have been key players.

BSL

No. 13 Glenbard West or No. 20 Proviso West Outlook: Morton is red hot at the right time and could be the hottest team in the sectional. The Mustangs knocked off No. 2 seed Proviso East Feb. 15 for the first time in three tries this season and have won nine in a row overall. The improved play of guards Greg Carter and Luke Belcaster have boosted the team, but junior forward Weisner Perez is the clear goto guy for the team. Morton hosts the regional and could see No. 5 seed Conant in a possible regional final. The Cougars play a very slow style. “If we can score, we’ll press them and we’ll see what happens,” coach Tony Martinucci said. “The sectional is so good. There’s no clear dominant team like in years past. I’m looking at 12 teams that can probably beat you in a firstround game.”

The Class 3A and 4A boys basketball playoffs tip off next week, and while teams from the area will head different directions at the start of the postseason, the end goal is the same — to reach Carver Arena in Peoria for the state finals March 21 and 22.
