Join Chris Cavalaris, Ryan Durburg, Bobby Winebrenner, and special guest Joey Williams as they discuss their most recent findings in LFHS.
Like many Lake Forest student athletes before her, including Justin McMahon (Boys Basketball), Andrew Athenson (Football), and Meghan McGrail (Volleyball)–all from the class of 2017–senior Maeve Summerville saw something in DePauw University that caught her eye.
Summerville, a 6’1″ forward who injured her knee this summer and is likely to miss the beginning of the Scouts basketball season come November, has decided on DePauw to continue her collegiate basketball career. Though she is out of action while intensely rehabbing her knee and working towards her return, Summerville’s mind is still dominated by basketball. “I give her a lot of credit,” added Scouts Girls Basketball Head Coach Kyle Wilhelm. “She has kept her mind towards rehabbing and has approached a tough situation very positively. There are great things ahead for her, both at LFHS and DePauw.”
DePauw University, a small, liberal arts college in Greencastle, Indiana comprised of about 2,300 undergraduate students, has become a desired destination for many Lake Forest High School student athletes looking to extend their athletic careers at the Division III level. Though she had moderate interest from some Division I programs, Summerville has decided that DePauw is the school that suits both her athletic and academic skills best.
As a junior, Summerville was among the Scouts’ leaders in scoring along with freshman Halle Douglass and Delaney Williams, who has since extended her playing career to Wittenberg University in Ohio. Summerville also led the Scouts in rebounding, using her 6’1″ frame to corral plenty of second chance opportunities for the Scouts. Her three point touch combined with her rebounding athleticism makes her one of Coach Wilhelm’s most versatile players.
Look for Maeve Summerville and the Scouts to build off last season’s successes, which included their first IHSA Regional title since 2005, this winter.

After being forced to the sidelines for the entire spring track season of her junior year, Lake Forest Cross Coutnry’s Brett Chody is set to make her return to the course.
This Saturday when the Scouts take on Hinsdale Central at Katherine Legge Park in Hinsdale, the Scouts lineup will feature one of the state’s best distance runners for the first time since November 5th of 2016. That day, Chody turned in a performance that most runners would be proud of, but it was a race to forget for the competitive senior who turned 17 last week.
After posting a time of 17:50.7 in the 3 mile course at the Waukegan 3A Regional Championship a year ago–which earned her 6th place in that event–Chody fell back to 18:17.0 in the IHSA State Meet in early November, a far cry from her 17:26.0 personal record at Detweiler Park at the IHSA Championships the previous year.
Since then Chody has been anxiously awaiting her return and a chance to reclaim her reputation as one of the state’s premiere runners. This summer, she spent the entire three month break from school training in Crested Butte, Colorado at elevations between 7600 and 9600 feet per day with some of the most talented young runners in the world.
With her college decision looming in the future, Saturday’s race marks a new, important chapter in the return journey of one of Lake Forest High School’s most talented athletes.
This weekend the defending IHSFHA State Champion Lake Forest Scouts take their unblemished record on the road. On Saturday the Scouts will head south to Wilmette where they will face the Loyola Ramblers on their home turf at Munz Campus.
The Scouts, who are led by University of Iowa signee Catherine Nicholson, Maggie Mick, Sarah Considine, and a slew of other quality performers, face off against the Ramblers after boasting early season wins over Oak Park River Forest and Evanston on the road.
Goalie Barbara Canty has yet to allow a goal on the young season as the Scouts blanked both OPRF and Evanston 6-0. Saturday’s game will begin at 10:00 AM as the Scouts look to check off an early season test.
Over the weekend, John Hersey High School in Arlington Heights played host to the IHSA State Finals Boys Tennis tournament, which featured the Lake Forest Scouts, the Warren High School Sectional Champion, and a slate of the other top tennis talent in the state of Illinois.
Over the course of the 3-day tournament, the doubles teams of Daniel Beedle and Jack Pasquella and Jack Armstrong and Connor Polender competed alongside singles players Will Zordani and Oleksi Vyshyvanyuk.
As for the singles tournament, Zordani finished in the top 20 overall, bowing out to Tytus Metzler of Auburn H.S. in Rockford (0-6, 1-6) in the second round. Vyshyvanyuk also finished in the top 25. The sophomore won his first match over Varun Menon of Rockton-Hononegah without losing a game before falling to Notre Dame’s Nick Hebda (1-6, 0-6).
In the doubles tournament, the duo of Jack Armstrong and Connor Polender made it all the way to the state semifinals before falling to Edwardsville’s Alex Gray and Zach Trimpe (1-6, 1-6). In the third place match, Armstrong and Polender rebounded in a gutty, 3-set victory over Glenbrook South’s tandem of Sabastien DesRoberts and Rohan Gupta (3-6, 6-2, 7-5). Daniel Beedle and Jack Pasquella bowed out to the same doubles team that Armstrong and Polender eventually beat, earning a revenge victory for the Scouts’ team.
The Scouts’ individual successes contributed to a great team finish as Lake Forest secured a fourth place finish overall, trailing only Naperville Central, New Trier, and Hinsdale Central in the tournament standings.
The 2017 season marks Lake Forest High School’s first state trophy in Boys Tennis since the 2014 season, when Coach Corky Leighton led the Scouts to back-to-back-to-back trophies in ’12, ’13, and ’14. The Scouts have 3 team state championships earned in ’86, ’03, and ’04. Congratulations to the Lake Forest High School Varsity Boys Tennis team on an outstanding season.

We all know that every second counts in track. However, on Thursday night at Loyola Academy in the Girls Track and Field Sectional, the 4x 800m relay team of Emma Milburn, Grace Bentley, Courtney Schmidt, and Sydney Barber proved that each tenth of a second counts as they qualified by .2 seconds.
Aside from the aforementioned qualification, the 4x 100m relay of Haley Click, Sydney Leonardi, Kamila Orbzut and Anafran Curry also qualified while the 4x 400m relay team of Emma Milburn, Haley Click, Sydney Barber, and Grace Bentley also qualified.

On this week’s episode of the Cavo and Sidles Podcast, Chris and Charlie welcome Hannah Bell, the recent recipient of the North Suburban Conference Sportsmanship Award, and Delaney Williams to discuss the Girls Varsity Soccer season.
A season ago, University of Maryland Terrapin short stick midfielder Wesley Janeck was competing for the NCAA National Championship in men’s lacrosse vs. the University of North Carolina. This season, Wes is doing everything in his power to get back to that gratifying stage; this time, however, he plans on taking home the hardware.
The Lake Forest High School class of 2015 graduate, who was an All-Conference running back for the Scouts football team aside from being a NILCA All-American in lacrosse, appeared in all 20 games in Maryland’s historic season last year. Most recently, though, the 5’9″, 175 lb. sophomore helped the Terrapins down the Penn State Nittany Lions in the Big 10 semifinals to advance to the Big 10 Championship game for the second consecutive year on Saturday night.
This season, Janeck has appeared in 13 games and has 18 ground balls on the season. The Terrapins are (11-3, 4-1) on the season and look to make a strong push in the NCAA tournament very soon.
