Area sophomore basketball teams get a summer workout at USF shootout /winnetka-northfield/2012/06/13/area-sophomore-basketball-teams-get-a-summer-workout-at-usf-shootout/ /winnetka-northfield/2012/06/13/area-sophomore-basketball-teams-get-a-summer-workout-at-usf-shootout/#comments Wed, 13 Jun 2012 15:31:10 +0000 Jeff Vorva /lincolnshire/?p=18795

The first tipoff was at 8 a.m., and 13 hours later a champion was crowned.
And in the middle was nonstop basketball featuring several TribLocal-area sophomore boys basketball teams with players trying to hone their skills for next November.
The University of St. Francis hosted a 16-team shootout for high school sophomores. Thornton beat out Neuqua Valley for the title with Stevenson and Providence Catholic making it to the semifinals and Marist claiming fifth.
Other TribLocal-area teams that participated were Aurora West, Hinsdale Central, Joliet West, Hoffman Estates, Marian Central Catholic and Niles West.

Teams played five or six games on the day but the format featured 12-minute halves with a running clock. During the regular season, sophomores play seven-minute quarters with a stopped clock during fouls, turnover, free throws and out-of-bounds plays.
USF coaches and players helped run the tournament. The Saints came off a 15-16 campaign in 2011-12 a year after one of its best recent campaigns – 21-10 in 2010-11.
Coach John Baines enters his third year at the helm and nine players are eligible to return including Andrew Lerg, who averaged 10.2 points per game. The Saints are also welcoming St. Xavier University transfer Mark Peters of Aurora, Plainfield’s Edvinas Presniakovas, Joliet’s Brian Edwards and Florida’s Logan Timmons.

Arrogance ‘in a good way’ helps Oak Park win first state baseball title since ’81 /winnetka-northfield/2012/06/11/arrogance-in-a-good-way-helps-oak-park-win-first-state-baseball-title-since-81/ /winnetka-northfield/2012/06/11/arrogance-in-a-good-way-helps-oak-park-win-first-state-baseball-title-since-81/#comments Mon, 11 Jun 2012 20:08:25 +0000 Jeff Vorva /oak-park-river-forest/?p=59573

Oak Park River Forest High School’s baseball team needed a seventh-inning single from Mike Brennan to score Jack Picchiotti to set off a wild celebration as the Huskies won the Illinois High School Association Class 4A title Saturday night.
The Huskies nipped defending state champion Lyons Township, 4-3, at Silver Cross Field in Joliet. Lyons was denied the opportunity to become the first team since Maine in 1958 and 1959 to win back-to-back baseball titles.
The Huskies have a rich baseball history but only won titles in 1942 and 1981.

Still, they came into the 2012 postseason ready for a title.
While many strong programs were upset in regional and sectional action, the Huskies won three wild postseason games heading into the state semifinals including a 2-1 win over Evanston, an 8-7 win over New Trier, a 10-8 slugfest over Maine South and a 2-0 pitcher’s dual win over Highland Park.
“They were very confident and arrogant in a good way not in a negative way,” Huskies coach Chris Ledbetter said. “They knew they couldn’t overlook anybody. They were mature week in and week out about it.”
The Huskies finished the season at 30-9-1.
Other members on the Huskies roster include seniors Jack Belcaster, Dan Shinsako, Joe Romoro, Jack Johanesson, Zach Weigel, Max Guzzetta, Colin O’Brien, Joe McKune, Matt McCormack and Mike Adams plus juniors Charlie Fencik, Henry Pine, Dain Mrozek, Henry Cappel, Patrick Clifford, Ryan Nelson, Nick Kowalczuk and Sam Munno.

Sophomores Sam Cottingham-Beard and Alex Rice were also on the roster.
Lyons was a fifth seed in its sectional and wasn’t expected to return to the final four. But the Lions made it to the title game and played even with the Huskies for six innings.
Evan Booth, pitcher Steve Heilenbach and Brad Taylor each had two hits for the Lions in the title game.
Grant finished third thanks to a 7-1 victory over Minooka to finish 26-12 and to bring home the baseball program’s first state trophy. Tino Torres had two hits in a six-run fourth inning to help the Bulldogs to the victory.
In Class 3A, Nazareth Academy claimed third place with a 2-1 victory over Troy Triad.
Ryan Marske homered for the Roadrunners (31-10) and Dominic Purpura pitched the victory. Last year, the Roadrunners finished fourth.
Marian Catholic won the state title in 3A with a 10-2 victory over LaSalle Peru.

Five area softball teams bring home state trophies and two win titles /winnetka-northfield/2012/06/11/five-area-softball-teams-bring-home-state-trophies-and-two-win-titles/ /winnetka-northfield/2012/06/11/five-area-softball-teams-bring-home-state-trophies-and-two-win-titles/#comments Mon, 11 Jun 2012 15:56:46 +0000 Jeff Vorva /glen-ellyn/?p=41769 Glenbard South and Marist High School each won Illinois High School Association softball championships Saturday in East Peoria while Bartlett claimed second and Providence Catholic and Elk Grove each finished third.
Glenbard South upended defending state champion Marengo, 2-1, to win the Class 3A title and Marist, a Chicago school that draws from several TribLocal south suburbs, beat Bartlett, 5-0 to win the Class 4A title.
South had been to the state semifinals in 2009 and 2011 but could not reach the title game until this year.
“I’ve been on the other side too many times,” senior pitcher Danielle Chitkowski told the Tribune after the title game. “I’ve been seeing other teams celebrate like that for years an that made our 10 times better.”
Chitkowski and her junior sister, Stephanie, combined for the victory allowing just three hits to Marengo. South (37-4) was led on offense by junior Hannah Taylor’s two-run single in the fourth.
Other members on the Raiders roster are senior Rachel Cohen, Olivia Ramirez, Brianna Meath, Lisa Bartha, Taryn Andros and Hannah Dewey plus juniors Jane Trzaska and Madison Rankin.
Also on the roster were sophomores Tarah Valdez, Angelica Eichele and Aimee Gerhardt plus freshmen Taylor Carli, and Tricia Weigland.
Providence dropped an extra-inning heartbreaker to Marengo (2-1 in eight innings) on Friday and came back for a 2-0 win over Mattoon to finish third. Sarah Brightmore and Jessica Jatis each drove in runs to help winning pitcher Amanda Wilson.
Marist, once 15-15 during the season, won 12 in a row to win the Class 4A title.
Haley Richy’s grand slam in the fifth helped break the game open against Bartlett.
Other members on the RedHawks’ roster include Brooke Wilson, Kaitlin Kenny, Nicole Babrowski, Audra Hecker, Katie Caulfield, Maggie Gorman, Brooke Wyderski, Kristin Klutcharch, Angela Sorrentino, Lauren Holt and Ashley Rios.
Kaylyn Zierke had two hits for Bartlett (32-9) in the title game.

Area softball teams hoping to knock off defending state champs Marengo and Moline /winnetka-northfield/2012/06/07/area-softball-teams-hoping-to-knock-off-defending-state-champs-marengo-and-moline/ /winnetka-northfield/2012/06/07/area-softball-teams-hoping-to-knock-off-defending-state-champs-marengo-and-moline/#comments Thu, 07 Jun 2012 17:38:46 +0000 Jeff Vorva /elk-grove-village/?p=19278 Five TribLocal area teams are gunning for state softball titles this weekend but will have to knock off a pair of defending state champs to do it.
Class 3A and 4A semifinals in the Illinois High School Association state tournament start Friday in East Peoria.
Elk Grove High School coach Ken Grams has 778 victories and numerous 30-victory seasons but is looking for his first state title. The Grenadiers bring in a 31-8 mark against Marist at 2:30 p.m. Friday and have outscored their five postseason opponents by a combined score of 29-7.
Senior pitcher Dani Goranson is a strikeout machine, notching 284 Ks in 198 innings. She also leads the team with 10 homers and 13 doubles.
The Grenadiers finished second in the state in 1982 and third in Class 4A in 2010.
Marist, a Chicago school that draws several students and athletes from the south suburbs, is making its state finals debut and brings in a 25-15 mark.
The Redhawks are riding a 10-game winning streak and sophomore Brooke Wyderski has been on fire all year, hitting 10 homers and driving in 41 runs.
Bartlett, which draws students from West Chicago, is in the other semifinal bracket and takes on defending Class 4A champ Moline Friday at 5 p.m.
The Hawks (31-8) outscored postseason opponents by a combined 22-2 score and are led by senior Tori Burke, who has four homers and 26 RBI and has 20 wins on the mound.
In Class 3A, Glenbard South is making its fourth appearance in the final four in the past five years, finishing third in 2008, fourth in 2009 and third in 2011. Coach Julie Fonda’s squad is 34-4 and takes on Mattoon at noon Friday.
Solving South’s Chitkowski sisters has not been an easy thing to do for opponents. Senior Danielle Chitkowski own a 17-2 mark with a 1.74 ERA and has driven in 51 runs. Junior Stephanie Chitkowski is 16-2 with an 0.98 ERA.
The Raiders had a 15-game winning streak halted with a 7-3 loss to Burlington Central to close out the season but have beaten four postseason opponents b a combined score of 27-3.
Providence Catholic takes a 28-12 record into its Class 3A semifinal game against defending Class 3A champ Marengo at 9:30 a.m. Friday. The Celtics are making their first state finals appearance.
Coach Jay Biesterfeld is enjoying this run. He opened his coaching career at Rich South, where his team won just 25 games in five years. Since coming to Providence in 2005, he has racked up 164 wins.
Last year, the Celtics were 16-19-1 but this year they have claimed nine straight victories heading into the final four including a 2-1 sectional victory over Tinley Park, a 5-4 sectional title win over Oak Forest and a 4-3 supersectional triumph over Geneseo.
Pitcher Allie Strick struck out 174 hitters over 142 1/3 innings en route to a 17-4 record for the Celtics. Amanda Wilson has driven in 30 runs and Morgan Greenwood 29.

Council denies landmark status for four Winnetka commercial buildings /winnetka-northfield/2012/06/06/council-denies-landmark-status-for-four-winnetka-commercial-buildings/ /winnetka-northfield/2012/06/06/council-denies-landmark-status-for-four-winnetka-commercial-buildings/#comments Wed, 06 Jun 2012 22:37:44 +0000 John P. Huston /winnetka-northfield/?p=31337 Without discussing their architectural or historical merit, the Winnetka Village Council has denied honorific local landmark status to four commercial properties.

During a meeting this week, trustees appeared confused at times about the ramifications of approving the request by BJB Evanston, the management firm for the four Tudor-revival buildings in the suburb’s downtown. Several cited the Cook County Assessor’s Office Class L incentive program, which decreases the level at which a qualifying property is assessed for 12 years.

Trustees argue that the program could negatively impact the village because if one property’s taxes are decreased, all others are increased by a small margin to make up for it.

But state and county officials say that properties in Winnetka are ineligible for the Cook County program because its local landmark ordinance does not meet state standards, according to recent interviews with Catherine O’Connor, manager of local government services for the Illinois Historical Preservation Agency, and Maura Kownacki, spokeswoman for the Cook County Assessor’s Office. Therefore there would be no impact to other property owners’ taxes.

Winnetka would first have to amend its preservation ordinance in a number of ways to become a “certified local government” with the state’s Preservation Agency, before properties would be eligible for the Class L incentive, O’Connor said. To do so, the village would have to allow single family homes to be designated landmarks without the owner’s consent, allow for the creation of historic districts, as well as require the local Landmark Preservation Commission to hear building permits for historic homes before the permits are issued — all issues that have been discussed and rejected by the village in past years.

Elizabeth Breiseth, of MacRostie Historic Advisors, who is representing BJB Evanston in its attempt to landmark the four properties, acknowledged that there was no financial benefit from the local landmark status, but that BJB was already seeking to be placed on the National Historic Registry. Placement on the Nation Registry would allow BJB to apply for a federal income tax credit program if future improvements to the buildings are made — a program that would not affect local property owners’ tax bills.

The national process does not require a property to first be a local landmark, meaning the Winnetka designation would have been honorific.

“We felt these buildings were significant to the community and since we had done all this research for the National Register we wanted an honorific recognition of the property,” Breiseth said.

Trustees Arthur Braun, Jack Buck, Patrick Corrigan and Richard Kates voted against granting landmark status to the four properties. Trustees Stuart McCrary and Jennifer Spinney voted in favor.

Kates said he wasn’t satisfied with the information he received from staff that the properties were not eligible for the county’s Class L incentive program. He said without ironclad information from staff, he had the responsibility to vote no, otherwise he could have supported BJB’s request.

“There could be a problem that would have real estate tax ramifications and I’m not going to gamble,” Kates said.

While the issue gained the attention of the Winnetka Home Owners Association, a resident group that opposes local landmarking, it didn’t cause much controversy among business owners.

Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Terry Dason said she’d heard no comments one way or the other from her members.

Patrick O’Neil, who owns three Winnetka restaurants, one of which — Trifecta Grill — is in one of the BJB buildings that applied for the landmark status, said he supported the concept.

“That’s what we love about that building — that old Tudor look with the vines growing all over it,” O’Neil said. “You wouldn’t get that in a new metal building that could be put up. I don’t think you can buy charm. It has to be there.”

Jim Sayegh, a Winnetka commercial property owner, said he wasn’t taking a position on the issue, but said BJB Evanston had already made a substantial contribution to the village with its previous improvements to its buildings.

“This is a very positive landlord to have come into Winnetka that, as a neighboring property owner, I have benefited from tremendously,” Sayegh said.

The four properties — at 715-725 Elm St., 503-507 Chestnut St., 545-561 Lincoln Ave. and 874 Green Bay Road — were the first commercial buildings to apply for Winnetka’s local landmark status.

Area baseball teams hope to continue wild postseason /winnetka-northfield/2012/06/06/area-baseball-teams-hope-to-continue-wild-postseason/ /winnetka-northfield/2012/06/06/area-baseball-teams-hope-to-continue-wild-postseason/#comments Wed, 06 Jun 2012 19:12:20 +0000 Jeff Vorva /la-grange-la-grange-park/?p=30280

In a wild postseason that saw several top-ranked teams fall, four TribLocal area baseball team survived in Class 3A and 4A and have a date to try to win state titles.

The state semifinals take place Friday and Saturday at Silver Cross Field in Joliet.

In Class 4A, defending champion Lyons Township faces Minooka at 5 p.m. on Friday.

Lyons (26-12-1) had its moments of greatness and also had some rough patches during the season and picked up a fifth seed in the sectional.

But the Lions put on an impressive postseason run, beating Reavis 10-7 and Morton, 12-2 to win a regional title. They beat three strong private school teams in St. Laurence, 8-3, Mt. Carmel, 9-1, and Marist, 3-2 to reach the semifinals for the second straight year.

Kevin Lehmann has a 9-2 mark with an 0.86 ERA. Evan Booth, Steve Heilenbach and Lehmann lead the club with seven homers apiece.

Oak Park-River Forest faces Grant at 3 p.m. and comes into the final four with a 28-9-1 mark.

The Huskies boast a deep pitching staff as six of the seven pitchers who stepped on the mound threw between 25 and 45 innings.

Joe McKune has a 1.43 ERA and Zachary Weigel is at 1.71. Weigel also hit a team-high five homer runs this season.

Grant (25-11) closed the regular season winning four games by a combined score of 58-3 to help go into the postseason on a roll.

The Bulldogs were 12-17-1 and 10-17 the past two years and have never made it this far in the posteason.

In Class 3A, Nazareth returns to the final four after finishing fourth in 2011.

The Roadrunners, 30-9, sputtered toward the end of the year, dropping three of their last four regular-season games.

But they returned to form in the postseason, clobbering Chicago Westinghouse, 11-0, and Chicago Little Village, 10-1 in regional play and knocking off their next three opponents by a combined score of 22-8 to make it back to the state semifinals.

Dominic Pupura (9-1, 1.43 ERA) and Jake Bartels (7-2, 2.01) are a tough one-two punch on the hill and Ryan Marske has driven in 30 runs this season.

The Roadrunners’ semifinal opponent at noon Friday is East Suburban Catholic Conference foe Marian Catholic (23-17). During the regular season, Nazareth won 4-1 on May 2 but fell 5-3 the next day.

LaSalle Peru and Troy Triad are the two teams in the other bracket.
