Glenbard East student charged with threatening school held for $75,000 bond

College forms human ‘pink ribbon’

About 500 Elmhurst College students, faculty members and staff gathered on the College Mall to form an enormous pink ribbon on Thursday, Oct. 25. It was all part of the College’s month-long Real Bluejays Wear Pink campaign to raise awareness about breast cancer, and funds for breast cancer research. “This was a great way for our campus to come together to support all women battling breast cancer,” said Elmhurst College President Troy D. VanAken (front and center of ribbon). President VanAken is one of several DuPage County leaders taking part in the American Cancer Society’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign.

DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin and Lombard Chief of Police Roy Newton announced last week that an 18-year-old male Glenbard East student has been charged with posting a threat on Instagram directed at his school. Jairus Castillo, 18, of Glendale Heights, appeared in Bond Court where Judge Brian Jacobs set bond at $75,000 with 10% to apply. On Oct. 20, 2018, Lombard police received information regarding a threatening Instagram Jairus Castillo post in which a male, not Castillo, was seen holding an AR-15 style rifle accompanied with the words “He’s shooting up the school Monday 3rd period after the bell.” An investigation conducted by the Lombard Police Department led to Castillo as the person who allegedly made the post. He was taken into custody the following day without incident. “Threatening the safety and security of thousands of teachers, staff and students is not a joke,” Berlin said. “Any threat to the well-being of our students and teachers will be fully investigated and anyone suspected of such behavior will be charged accordingly. I would like to thank the Lombard Police Department for their work in quickly identifying the defendant in this case.” Any threat to Castillo has been charged with one count of Disorderly the well-being of our Conduct – Threat of Violence students and teachers at a School, a Class 4 Felony. His next court appearance will be fully investigated is scheduled for Nov. 19 for and anyone suspected arraignment in front of Judge Liam Brennan. of such behavior will be Members of the public are charged accordingly.” reminded that this complaint – Robert B. Berlin, contains only charges and is not proof of the defendant’s State’s Attorney guilt.

Knuth is the author of four books and writes a monthly column for The Good News, the newspaper of the Diocese of Kalamazoo. During her presentation, Knuth will share her personal experiences volunteering for the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store in Kalamazoo, Mich., for more than 20 years. Her book is a collection of stories, which are both heartwarming and gritty at the same time, never sugar-coating the realities of running a charity operation. Through her stories we learn that the saints in the thrift store are not the donors or the volunteers — they are the people in need who come to the store for help. Following her talk, she will take questions from the audience. After the presentation, copies of her books will be available for purchase (cash or checks only). Light refreshments will be served. Free and open to the public. For more information, the church can be reached at (630) 6274526.

Open Enrollment is here. This is the time of year to enroll for health insurance benefits through the HealthCare.gov website, also known as the Health Insurance Marketplace. The DuPage County Health Department is encouraging residents to, “Follow Your Dreams, Choose Your Health Plan” and will offer several enrollment workshops throughout DuPage County. Specially-trained and certified assisters will provide information and enrollment assistance. If you do not have insurance through an employer, Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) or a source providing qualifying health insurance, you have from now through Dec. 15, 2018, to enroll in a health insurance plan. Anyone who registered for insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace in the past must review and renew their current health insurance plan during Open Enrollment. By law, each health insurance plan must cover (at a minimum) essential health benefits, including hospitalizations, doctor visits and prescription medicine. Financial assistance is still available to help lower costs of insurance for individuals meeting the income eligibility criteria. DuPage County residents are asked to call 630-221-7606 to make an appointment to attend a workshop, or for more information. Visit: dupagehealth.org/get_dupage_covered for more information and the list of workshops.

Sports Willowbrook football team headed to state quarterfinals for third year in a row By Mike Miazga, CORRESPONDENT The Willowbrook football team finds itself in some familiar territory once again. The Warriors were 36-26 winners over Maine West in the second round of the Class 7A state football playoffs in Villa Park. The win moved Willowbrook to a perfect 11-0 and sends it to the state quarterfinals for the third year in a row. Willowbrook lost 60-27 to East St. Louis Senior in the 2016 quarterfinals and 42-7 to Crystal Lake Prairie Ridge in the 2017 quarterfinals. East St. Louis went on to win the Class 7A title that year, while Prairie Ridge went on to win the Class 6A state title last season. Willowbrook heads west to face defending Class 7A state-champion Batavia either Friday or Saturday. Check IHSA.org for day and time with a chance to advance to the state semifinals on the line. In the win against Maine West, the Warriors led 9-7 after the first quarter and 15-14 at halftime before pulling away in the second half. Willowbrook led 29-20 after three quarters. Scott Tumilty scored two touchdowns, including one via an interception return. C.J. Harris also scored two touchdowns, including one via a fumble recovery in the end zone. Willowbrook also tied the longstanding program record for most wins in a season at 11, previously held by the 1975 team. The Warriors now are 29-6 over their last three seasons under coach Nick Hildreth, who has led the Warriors to five playoffs appearancesone short of tying Clint Evans’ six playoff appearances when the school first opened.

Week 12 Preview Willowbrook (11-0) at Batavia (11-0) What: Quarterfinals of the Class 7A state football playoffs When: Friday or Saturday. Check IHSA.org for date and time Where: Batavia High School Last week: Willowbrook 36, Maine West 26; Batavia 59, Moline 32 Seeds: Batavia is the No. 4 seed in the 32-team 7A bracket, while Willowbrook is the No. 5 seed. Outlook: The Warriors are in the state quarterfinals for the third year in a row. And for the third year in a row, Willowbrook faces a team that has the words “state champion” in the equation. Willowbrook’s previous two quarterfinal opponents, East St. Louis Senior and Prairie Ridge, both went on to win state titles, while Batavia is the defending Class 7A state champion. Willowbrook gave up a season-high 26 points to Maine West last week, but broke the 30-point barrier for the fifth game in a row and seventh time this season. Batavia, which won the DuKane Conference title with a 7-0 mark, has faced 11 opponents with a combined 54-54 mark this season and three teams with winning records (6 playoff teams). Willowbrook, which won the West Suburban Conference Gold title at 6-0, has faced 11 opponents with a combined 48-57 record and three teams with winning records (4 playoff teams). Batavia holds wins over Wheaton-Warrenville South (10-1) and St. Charles North (8-3), two other teams that have qualified for the Class 7A state quarterfinals. Those two teams meet this week in Wheaton in one of the two bottom-bracket contests. Batavia has won two state titles since 2013 and has been in the playoffs every year under coach Dennis Piron (who took over in 2011). Up next: The winner of Willowbrook-Batavia faces the winner of No. 1 Chicago Simeon (11-0) against No. 8 Nazareth Academy (101) in the state semifinals (upper-bracket game). If Willowbrook beats Batavia, it either plays in the semifinals at Gately Stadium in Chicago against Simeon or hosts Nazareth Academy.

Addison Trail boys soccer team enjoys strong season Blazers won 17 games and second regional title in three years

By Mike Miazga CORRESPONDENT

The Addison Trail boys soccer team has plenty to be proud of after the season it turned in this fall. The Blazers finishes 17-6 overall and took second in the West Suburban Conference Gold Division with a 5-1 mark. Addison Trail also won another Class 3A regional title. The Blazers placed seniors Melvin Mora, Eduardo Huerta, Sam Sandoval and Julio Acosta, along with junior Martin Murillo and sophomore Anthony Hernandez, on the all-WSC Gold team. Mora and Huerta earned all-sectional accolades. Mora finished the season with 15 goals and eight assists, while Hernandez had 11 goals and five assists. Acosta ended his season with seven goals and six assists. Sandoval, the team’s goalie, recorded 13 shutouts and had a goals-against average of 1.00 and also had an 87% save percentage. “We played excellent defense all season long,” coach Ryan Dini said. “Of our 17 wins, 13 were shutouts against a very difficult schedule. We started off the season 3-4 and ended up

winning 14 of our last 16 games. This shows the team really came together after our first third of the season and started playing team soccer. Our players started trusting everyone and we moved the ball side to side very well. I also think we did a great job transitioning on teams from offense to defense with our speed. We were excellent at the counter attack and were able to get a lot of goals on this type of attack.” Dini took time to laud the efforts of senior midfielder Alexis Delapaz, Huerta and Sandoval in particular for their varied key contributions to the team’s success. Delapaz scored in three of the team’s last four games after scoring once in the previous 19 contests. “This was huge for us because it added another individual who could put the ball in the net at the end of the season,” said Dini. Huerta, a senior, was strong for the Blazers at center back. “Eduardo was so solid in the center of our defense and was consistent all year,” the coach said. “He cleaned up our mistakes and was one of the better defenders in the state this year. We are really going to miss him next season.” Sandoval had the aforementioned 13 shutouts in goal. “To have 13 shutouts this year was incredible,” said Dini. “He also was the leader of this team. His instruction to his teammates and making sure we kept our shape was very important for our team. He also had some huge saves in conference

and in the playoffs to allow us to have a 17-6 record this season.” Dini said he’s most proud of the team winning the regional title. “It’s our second one in the last three years so that is special,” he said, noting the last one before 2016 came back in 2000. “As you can see, there was a big gap between 2000 and 2016. I also am proud of how this group went unranked to begin the season and finished in the top 20 in the polls (by two media outlets). Also, making the sectionals is never easy, so making it to the last 32 teams in the state was a good achievement. We ended up losing to Benet Academy in double overtime and they only lost four times all year. Dini noted the Blazers return nine of 20 players next season. “We did have a lot of seniors this year, but they showed great leadership, so I hope our younger players learned a lot from them,” he said. “We have to replace our starting goalie, three of our four defenders and our whole midfield. This will be very difficult, especially considering how well our team played this year. With that being said, our JV and sophomore team had some very nice players who should transition nicely to the varsity level next year. That is very exciting. We also had some players who chose to play club or academy soccer this past season, so if we can add a few of them we should have a strong team again next season.”

Fenton’s Elizondo, Kirkwood compete at state cross country Bison girls volleyball team concludes milestone season

By Mike Miazga CORRESPONDENT

A pair of Fenton cross-country runners wrapped up their seasons in the state finals meet this past weekend. On the boys’ side, Fenton junior Samuel Elizondo finished 66th in the Class 2A state finals meet at Detweiler Park in Peoria. He covered the course in 15:53.12. In the Class 2A girls’ race, Fenton senior Ruth Kirkwood finished 186th with a time of 20:39.66. Fenton Girls Volleyball The Fenton girls volleyball team finished the season with a 24-12 overall mark and went 3-3 in Metro Suburban Conference Red Division play. Fenton’s Vicky Krzyszkowski and Mackenzie Miller earned all-conference honors.

Miller was tops in service percentage at 96.8% or 399 serves inbounds out of 412 attempts. Miller also had 92 service aces. Krzyszkowski led the team with 224 kills and 56 blocks. Miller was tops in setting assists with 596. Miller also led the team in digs with 146. “The team focused on going out and playing at a high level just about every match,” Fenton coach Kelly Kleidorfer said. “We had very few ‘off’ matches. No matter the level of competition, we did our best to play the type of volleyball we wanted to play.” Kleidorfer said the team’s biggest strides came in the passing department. “I think our passing improved the most,” she said. “It usually has been a weakness for our program, but we did have glimpses of being a really good passing team.” Kleidorfer had plenty to be proud of both offensively and defensively with this year’s squad. “Offensively, when we were able to get the ball to Mackenzie in a good spot, she made

the right decision more often than not and our hitters were very aggressive with their attacks. We had four girls with more than 100 kills, where in years past our team leader was barely over 100. Defensively, our communication level was much better this season. While we did have some balls that hit the floor due to miscommunication, there were a lot fewer than in the past and that made us a much better team.” Miller and Krzyszkowski were named the team’s co-MVPs, while Agata Kukielko earned the team’s coaches award. “Mackenzie was on varsity for four years and the other two for three years,” said Kleidorfer. “Their leadership and determination were huge in the team having the success we had. There were days where they could not be stopped and they gave us everything they had every day. The program will greatly miss them.” Fenton achieved several key goals

during the season. “What we are most proud of with this group is we talked about winning a tournament and winning 20 matches at the beginning of the season and the girls exceeded both of those by winning two tournaments and 24 matches,” said Kleidorfer. “For a program that hadn’t had a lot of recent success, the girls did not shy away from shooting for high goals.” Fenton will be switching conferences next year, moving from the MSC to the Upstate Eight Conference. “That will be new to us,” said Kleidorfer. “We have played a few of those teams, but it is a very solid conference. However, as a public school we are very excited to be joining a

But we feel we have girls who didn’t play a whole lot this season who are ready to step in and join forces with our juniors that did play a lot. We expect middle blocker Julianna Krebasch will only continue to get better and right side Britania Aguilar will take another step forward and Sidney Minard will expand her role from serving specialist to being on the court a lot. Noha Zaggoti will take over at setter and Iza Faron will play a role in the back row. Now that we have experienced success, we don’t plan to fall back to the down years the program experienced.”

The Fenton boys soccer team enjoyed historic success this season. The Bison made it all the way to the supersectional round of the Class 2A state playoffs. Fenton lost to Crystal Lake South 5-0 in the Class 2A Burlington Central supersectional and ended up as one of the top eight teams in Class 2A this season. Fenton finished the season with a 14-8-1 overall mark and went 5-1 in conference play. Fenton had no shortage of allMSC performers.

persectionals and be an Elite Eight team,” said Fenton coach Victor Ruiz. Ruiz said the team made its greatest strides this season with team chemistry and developing balance on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. “I would have to give credit to the entire team,” said Ruiz. “We are proud of their commitment and team unity and being there for each other and their success.” Ruiz is looking forward to next season when Fenton joins the Upstate Eight Conference. “With the success the team had this year and moving to a new conference next year, it will make for a more demanding off-season and force us to work hard and get better,” he said.
