The four-team club program is playing in a new league this year.
The New Trier Hockey Club began their pre-season this Sunday with decisive Green Varsity team victories over both the Northwest Chargers (W 5-2) and the Providence Catholic Celtics (W 4-1). The following is a season preview crafted by the hockey club's board of directors. The largest high school hockey program in the state takes to the ice this week, as New Trier’s boys teams play their first games. Once again, New Trier is the only Illinois program to field four teams comprising a total of 80 players. One major change from last season is the demise of the Chicago Metro Hockey League and the dawn of the new Illinois High School Hockey League (IHSHL). After many years of playing an independent schedule, the Club’s top team, New Trier Green…

Second period goal ends Scouts’ reign in girls' hockey.
In the end, New Trier High School just had a little more defense. Avenging state semifinal losses to Lake Forest the past two seasons, the Trevians rode a second-period goal by freshman Morgan Crane to a 1-0 victory in the Blackhawk Cup State championship battle Friday afternoon at the United Center. Crane took control of the puck after a scrum on the right side of center ice and then went in one-on-one with Lake Forest freshman goalie Lindsay Projansky. Crane slid to the left side of the net and then buried her shot to the lower left of Projansky at the 7:17 mark. Rock Solid Although the Trevians held a decisive 22-12 shot advantage, the diminutive Projansky was a rock for the Scouts, while the puck spent most of the game at the Lake …

Trevians score 250 points for best-ever performance by a team since 1975.
Max Grodecki and New Trier owned the boys’ state swimming championship Friday and Saturday in Evanston. Grodecki brought home two first-place finishes and swam in two relays that captured the state title. Grodecki, who will attend Wisconsin next year, picked up his fifth first-place medal when the Trevian claimed the state championship with 250 points. “We are all obviously exhausted,” Grodecki said. “It was awesome. It was a great way to finish off my senior year.” Grodecki won the 50-yard freestyle in 20.24 seconds and the 100-yard freestyle in 44.66 seconds. He also was part of the 200-yard freestyle relay team of Sam Skinner, Nels Snyder and David Schriesheim that won in a time of 1:23.01 and the 400-yard freestyle relay team that won …

The three athletes lots in their initial matches.
Michael Palolan of Loyola Academy finished sixth in the 182-pound weight class as he opened the State Meet in Champaign with an 11-0 shutout over Jaime Jones of Lyons before suffering the same fate, 3-0, to Wheaton Warrenville South’s Evan Welsh. Palolan bounced back in the in the consolation round with wins over Faraan Brantley of Homewood Flossmoor, 8-3, and Jameer Thurman of Proviso West, 3-2, in overtime before being pinned by Joshua Symbal of Huntley in 3:09, of the fifth place match.

Pritchard of New Trier was ousted by Chris Gonzalez of Glenbard North, 4-2, at 113 while Jack Conner (152) was …

It was New Trier's first appearance at state finals in more than a decade.
Although they finished 8th as a team with a 141.775, New Trier coach Jennifer Pistorius was not disappointed with her team’s first appearance at the state finals since 1995. The Trevians overcame some early nerves and eight falls put together a performance they can build on for next season. “I tried to tell them that it was crazy and loud at the state meet,” said Pistorius, who had brought individuals to compete in the finals but never her whole team. “It was a bit overwhelming for them at first. But it was great. We have a lot to build off of. They will have this experience to build off of.” The Trevians had three individuals finish in the top 31 in the all-around. Kerry Scafidi was 18th with a 36.45, Elana Benishay was 28th with a 35.35 …

The plan to install synthetic turf is deemed “a good business decision.”
The New Trier Township District 203 school board voted 6-0 Dec. 12 to go ahead with a plan to install synthetic turf on the Stadium Field and on the adjacent practice fields at New Trier High School’s Northfield campus. The $3.3 million project is expected to be completed between the time spring sports end and when fall sports start in August, and will be paid for with a $1 million donation from the Booster Club and five-year bank loan with a 1.5 percent interest rate, said District 203 Superintendent Linda Yonke. School board president John Myefski called the move “a good business decision.” Earlier: Booster Club Offers $1 Million Towards Turf Field “I think its one of the first facilities improvements we’ve been able to do recently that’…

The junior wide receiver transitions well to varsity.
Keep your head on a swivel, if you’re not paying attention you might miss what Devin Boehm has to say. It’s not that New Trier’s junior wide receiver is quiet. Quite the opposite. Boehm is happy to share his opinion with his teammates, but makes his point quickly. Long-form speeches he leaves to the seasoned seniors on the team. Read more New Trier Athlete to Watch Profiles: Sam Scherer Though any filibuster at practice may not be in Boehm’s future, he’s determined to speak volumes with his play on the field. And Boehm got off to a quick start in Aug. 26’s 22-17 loss to Schaumburg when he carried the ball six times for over 100 yards in his first ever varsity game. “I wasn’t expecting to get as many rushes compared to receptions but it’s …

Steady-as-he-goes cross-country runner builds on confidence in reaching senior goals.
If New Trier senior Eric Underwood ever designs roller coaster, don’t ride it. Meet the Trevians’ cross-country and track star and it’s fairly easy to realize that he doesn’t have the kind of helter-skelter personality necessary to engineer a structure to provide patrons with their desired thrills. So, it’s ironic that between his junior and senior seasons, Underwood’s emotions became grounded faster than a base jumper. Earlier: Read more profiles on Trevian athletes here. As a junior, Underwood recalled being very emotional not just after a season of races that largely disappointed the distance stalwart but even after sub par workouts. But at last season’s state meet, Underwood realized after he beat his personal best time by 30 seconds, …

Van Horn leads volleyball Trevians on and off the court.
Catch a New Trier volleyball match, and it’s hard to miss Allison Van Horn. She can be seen in the back row, starting at libero—a position she has played throughout her career. And while her efficiency will get her noticed around the conference, she holds a vitally important role that can’t be recognized when she puts on the her knee pads. Earlier: Patch's New Trier Athlete to Watch on Nick Hedge Van Horn is the Trevian event planner, a vital yet under-appreciated role by the New Trier faithful. The New Trier volleyball team has developed a reputation as one of the area’s best, and some believe the team works so well on the court because it spends even more time together off it. Sleepovers, dinners and other bonding activities are …
