New classes and district calendar are approved.
New Trier Township High School saw its enrollment increase to 4,232 students spread over the Northfield and Winnetka campuses, and average class size increase from 22.4 students in the 2010-2011 school year to 22.9 students. During the 2009-2010 school year the district reported an enrollment of 4,181 students and an average class size of 22.1. While an increase of a half-student per class might not seem like much, Superintendent Linda Yonke said the change is driven by having more large classes. The proportion of classes with 30 or more students increased from .5 percent last year to 1.5 percent this year. At the same time, the number of small classes – those with 16 or fewer students – dropped from 8.8 percent to 8.2 percent. Such small …

A coach and teammate reflect on Wagner, who died last week.
Standing at 5-foot-7, Chris Wagner wasn’t physically imposing by any standard, let alone on a football field. But when he was given the ball as a tailback for New Trier, he made his presence known. “He was one of the hardest working guys on the team. He had superior athletic talent, really fast, really strong,” said Mark Howard, head coach for New Trier’s sophomore football team. “We’re all just kind of shocked at the news.” Wagner, 16, died unexpectedly at his home on July 7. A rising junior at New Trier, Wagner was expected to be a contributor on the Trevian football team in the fall. Wagner leaves behind a legacy that consists of more than just his skills as an athlete. “At the core he was just a great kid,” Howard said. [Chris] was …

After getting his start in tennis at Winnetka's Nielsen Tennis Center, Robert Stineman played in a qualifying match at the Nielsen Pro Tennis Championships on Sunday.
Robert Stineman stood on the stadium court at the Nielsen Pro Tennis Championships on Sunday afternoon engulfed by a circle of kids. Stineman stood patiently, signing autographs and posing for pictures, acting as a veteran rather than having just competed in his first professional tournament. Despite being the youngest participant in the field, Stineman was the huge fan favorite. As a recent New Trier High School graduate, Stineman had more than 300 supporters in the stands watching his two-set loss to Great Britain’s Jamie Baker in the opening round of the tournament qualifier. “It was really cool; I’ll never forget that feeling,” said Stineman, who is a two-time Illinois High School Association state singles champion. “I’m really …

Cardinals select the senior centerfielder with the 79th pick in the MLB First-Year Player Draft.
New Trier’s Charlie Tilson was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals with the 79th pick in the 2011 MLB First-Year Player Draft on Tuesday morning. The senior centerfielder had a .406 average, scored 41 runs and stole 28 bases during the 2011 season for the Trevians and became the first New Trier player to win the Illinois Gatorade Player of the Year award. Not the most highly touted prospect following his junior season, Tilson shot up the draft boards of pro teams after being the only player to hit a home run at last summer’s Area Code Games in California. As a result, numerous scouts attended New Trier’s baseball games to see Tilson play throughout the season. Tilson is seen as a five-tool player. ESPN’s scouts say Tilson is ”a plus-runner …
Molly Morrison's double in the eighth inning scored Chelsea Delaney to give New Trier its first Super-Sectional title since 2008.
On a day where temperatures reached into the mid-90s, the idea of being doused with water probably didn’t sound too bad to New Trier coach John Cadwell. And it was only that much sweeter when it came with a Super-Sectional championship. New Trier rallied from a 2-0 deficit in the sixth inning to force extras and Molly Morrison came up with the game-winning RBI double in the eighth to cap a thrilling 3-2 comeback victory for the Trevians against Lake Zurich in the IHSA Class 4A Glenview Super-Sectional. “A lot of it has to do with attitude and stuff and it all comes from Dave Snyder, the assistant coach,” said Morrison, a junior catcher. “He really works on how we approach things, our mental game, and I think that’s pulled us through in …
