Foreshadowing does not get more on the nose than an early botched snap in a football game. And when that bad snap is followed by a fumble on the next possession and another bad snap on the third, then it just may not be your night. The unusual first quarter stymied Highland Park’s offense and […] The post Giants off their game against rival Warriors but still ‘have everything in front’ of them appeared first on The Record.

Wildcats Claim Their Victory From Blue Devils in the Very First Home Game

On September 4th, the Varsity Girls Tennis team played their very first home game against Warren. The Libertyville Wildcats emerged victorious with a win of 6-1 against the Warren Blue Devils. Right from the start, it was evident that the Wildcats were in for a tough match, with the team off to a rocky start. However, thanks to the teamwork and cheers of encouragement from the team and the crowd, the Wildcats held their ground. Soon enough, it was anyone’s game. Each player represented the peak of their abilities as their matches progressed. It was only the incredible power of second singles player, whom today had been moved up to one singles, demonstrated her abilities on the court with a win of 6-0/6-0 that things started to turn around for the Wildcats. After her win, the Wildcats secured their first point putting them up 1-0. Describing how she gets in the mood for a game. Lena Dogadalski said, “First off, I just like hanging out with my teammates and then sometimes if I’m facing a harder opponent I like to just keep some time to myself before getting into a good mental state”. While the Cats may have won 6-1, they know they have a long way to go. It took a lot of work for the Wildcats to turn the game around and win, and it was clear for the Wildcats that if they wanted to make it far in the season, it would take everything they had in them and more. “So we have somewhat a team that’s very similar to last year,” Head Coach Dan Kiernan responded. “We have two very strong singles players. We definitely feel like strength training and conditioning are going to be important for us this year. Just to get everyone basically faster and in better shape to compete better in certain spots than we did last year, especially the doubles”.

“Rooting” For the Courtyard: The Libertyville Courtyard Shows its True Colors

On September 12, the Libertyville Environmental Action Force (LEAF) Courtyard was finally finished after years of work by Mr. Lapish and the members of LEAF. Before the LEAF project to fix the courtyard came along, many students complained that the enclosure was dead. That soon changed after LEAF members decided to take it upon themselves to bring color back to the yard. Now, instead of dirt and mulch, there is a lush green garden filled with plants native to Illinois. LEAF members also collaborated with the engineering club to make a fountain. LEAF members also worked with the art students to paint a mural op the ceiling of our newly refurbished pavilion, creating our own Sistine Chapel. “By contributing to the courtyard I feel like I have accomplished team-building skills,” Senior Alya Buldak said. “We’ve recruited a lot of kids who might not have done gardening regardless. We have made friendships and people who wouldn’t normally talk to each other. And I think we’ve just built a community around the club and also the rest of the student body”. By taking advice from landscapers, LEAF members were able to collaborate and design the courtyard. Thanks to their teamwork and collaboration with other clubs, they have created a new, unique space for students to just have a place to relax and for students and teachers to meet as they enjoy all the plants, bugs, bees, and birds. In the future, the club will continue to focus on maintaining the new courtyard. As for future projects, the club will possibly create a new courtyard outside the school. This will take time, however. “We started planning the courtyard we had in mind out by the tennis courts,” Mr. Lapish said. “We were thinking about putting a garden dedicated to milkweed for the monarchs but whether that happens or not, that’s going to be a lot more costs and a lot more maintenance and stuff. So that’s kind of like a pie in the sky, but it’s a possible project”.
