The Dominican University women's basketball team bounced back from a 79-52 defeat at the hands of Lawrence University on opening night with a 59-55 win on Saturday afternoon over Concordia University?#34;Wis.
Don Offermann has been a prominent name in Oak Park, River Forest and Forest Park for many years. As a faculty member, coach, and eventually superintendent at Oak Park and River Forest High School from 1964 through 1999, he is well known to thousands of OPRF grads. Since retirement from OPRF, he has remained active, working as Business Development Officer for the Forest Park National Bank.
The OPRF Hockey Club didn't let a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of No. 2-ranked Naperville Central on Saturday bring them down when the Huskies played host to Providence on Sunday. OPRF vented its frustration over the loss by pelting the Celtics with numerous shots on goal, leading to a 4-2 victory.
The goal for the Fenwick swim team this year was to have as many swimmers competing at the IHSA State Meet. The Friars accomplished their goal and then some as they capped off a successful season by finishing 21st as a team at the State Meet at Evanston High School last Friday and Saturday. Fenwick had two swimmers and a relay squad finish strong in the finals.
After disembarking from the Mayflower, frolicking about their new spread, and hobnobbing with the Native Americans, the pilgrims partook in a jolly game of one-hand touch football with their new friends, the Wampanoags. They pegged it the Plymouth Rock FedEx Bowl. With the dynamite duo of Massasoit and Squanto in the backfield (they combined for over 400 yards rushing), the Wampanoags won handedly 54-0.
Any doubts Fenwick head coach John Quinn had about Peter Flowers' talents were quickly dashed two years ago in a game against Westinghouse. Flowers was a freshman playing on varsity. He scored 10 points and hauled down 10 rebounds. Kelvin Johnson was also there that night, an unselfish sophomore guard with instinctive defensive skills. Both are back as the "foundation blocks" to this year's team, and both are older, wiser and better basketball players.
