Volleyball game to raise funds for cancer research; Bears tickets to be auctioned
Mundelein High School’s girls’ volleyball team will host a Breast Cancer Volleyball Match vs. Libertyville High School Thursday, Oct. 4 at 5 p.m. in the Main Gym. Admission will be a donation of $5 for adults and $3 for children. A limited number of newly designed t-shirts will be available in the bookstore beginning Monday, Oct. 1. Cost is $10 for short sleeves and $15 for long sleeves.
Roughly 94 percent of the money raised through this event will go to the Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation. Last year, the event collected $4,500 and to date the annual event has raised more than $34,000. The night of the game will include raffle baskets at $5 a ticket or five for $20 and a 50/50 raffle for $2 a ticket or 6 for $10. A pair of Bears game tickets will be part of a silent auction.

EKG Testing; parent volunteers needed
Mundelein High School students will have an opportunity to be screened Wednesday, October 24 for early detection of possible heart problems. The testing is being made possible at the low cost of $15 by the Max Schewitz Foundation named after a 20-year-old Lake County resident who died without warning from a hidden heart condition.

The testing will include the EKG for all participants. Students selected by the cardiologist will also have additional testing that day at no cost. Testing is free for students who are registered with the school to receive free or reduced lunch. 

“This is a great opportunity for parents to have their children tested in a familiar setting and to be active in early detection of any possible problems,” said Kathryn Serby who has two freshman students at MHS.

According to the Foundation, high school is an ideal time for someone to have a baseline EKG since the greatest risk of sudden cardiac death is between ages 17 and 22. The EKG is a visual representation of the heart’s function. It is quick, painless and can detect many potentially life-threatening heart conditions.

All efforts are made to respect privacy and modesty. Testing takes place in individual booths, and boys and girls are tested separately. Cardiologist Brian Shortal, MD, will oversee all aspects of testing and interpretation. Results are confidential and are shared only with parents within three weeks of the testing.

Approximately 75 parent volunteers are needed to help with the testing and typically offer two 3.5 hour timeslots to volunteers. Parents may volunteer on the website when they register their child.

“We’re happy to partner with the Max Schewitz Foundation to offer this important testing for our students,” said MHS Principal Anthony Kroll. We encourage all our parents to take advantage of this opportunity to have the testing done on Oct. 24.”

To register a student and/or to volunteer, please visit the Foundation website at


Four MHS seniors named Commended Students
Mundelein High School Principal, Dr. Anthony Kroll, has announced that four MHS students have been named Commended Students in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation [NMSC], which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to these scholastically talented students.
Seniors Joseph Dolff, John Lay, Komol Patel and Robert St. Clair are the recipients of the recognition.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise, according to the NMSC. Although they will not continue in the 2019 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 competition by taking the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test [PSAT/NMSQT].

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” said a spokesperson for NMSC. “We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

Mundelein trips up Barrington
Before Mundelein's boys soccer team resumes its stretch of games against quality conference opponents, the Mustangs picked up a quality win Saturday.Mundelein rode a two-goal first half to edge visiting Barrington 2-1 in a non-conference match. Camden Kowalski and Paul Yoo scored goals for the Mustangs, while Junior Hernandez had the lone goal for the Broncos.Next up for Mundelein (7-3-1) is a pair of home games in the North Suburban Conference against Stevenson (8-2-1) on Tuesday and Libertyville (10-0) on Thursday.Mundelein lost to Larkin on the road last Monday, before tying 12-game-winner Zion-Benton (12-3-2) in NSC action on Thursday night."We performed very well against Larkin and Zion-Benton, but the bats went dry," Mundelein coach Ernie Billittier said. "The results were frustrating, but the effort was fine."Mundelein generated ample scoring opportunities against Barrington (9-5-2). The Mustangs hit three posts and had other chances near the net that they couldn't finish."I was happy that we put a couple away in this one," Billittier said. "We left a few goals on the field too, and you can't let a good team like Barrington stay that close late in the game."It might not be the last time the Mustangs see the Broncos this season. The seeding meeting is in a couple of weeks."We seem to cross paths with Barrington if we get out of the regional," Billittier said. "Obviously, our biggest concern isn't that. Stevenson is playing very well, and that's the next step."Kowalski scored the opening goal against Barrington, finishing a pass from Darren Gray in the 14th minute. Yoo flicked a header into the net in the 28th minute off an Armando Rosiles free kick from outside the box."As a team, we're all pushing up," said Rosiles, who has 5 assists this season. "We've been working hard in practices and in warmups, practicing plays."Barrington cut its deficit in half when Hernandez finished a shot that was set up by Aidan Lew in the 50th minute."Mundelein has been consistently getting far in the playoffs, and it was good for us to look at where we're at," said Barrington assistant coach Caleb Copeland, who filled in for head coach Scott Steib, who missed the game after receiving a red card against Hersey. "Sometimes these are some of the games you need out of the conference. You can see the big picture. Getting a one goal back after being down by two goals at the half is not a win for us, but it at least gives us a little of momentum knowing we can put one in when we're down."

S/O and thank you to our Redzone Dads, @MundeleinCheer  our Mustang Coaches and Managers and to the best Coach's wife ever, Kathy Calhoun for the hard work and dedication to making our Mustang Moms' event a wonderful experience.  See … for more great pics.

Boys Cross Country
This weekend we split our squad up, with the varsity going to California to run in the Woodbridge Classic Invitational, and the rest of the team running at the Warren Invitational. There were great performances at both meets, let's look at the highlights.

At Warren-In the F/S race, Nathan Clapp led the way as the team took 9th, without top runner Elian Salgado. Nathan took 13th overall with a PR of 17:21. Aaron Hernandez was next in 55th place, also with a PR of 18:41. Diego Gonzalez was 3rd in with a 90 second PR, taking 67th in 19:07, right in front of Andrew Brizzell, taking 68th in 19:08. Leighton Eddy closed out the scoring, taking 138th in 20:51.

In the JV race, Dylan Debord had a 40 second PR, running 21:55.
In the varsity race, Matt Olorvida led the squad to a 13th place finish. Matt took 12th overall, with a new PR of 16:20. Talk about rising to the challenge! Aaron De Lara took 76th in 17:59. Daniel Nieto also had a big PR, taking 83rd in 18:10. Jeremy Hernandez was next in, taking 89th in 18:19. Jacob Perraud and Colin Hogan closed out the race, finishing 11th and 125th, in 18:58 and 20:34. I will attach a file with all our Warren times below.

At Woodbridge our guys showed they deserved to run with the elite teams in the nation, taking 16th out of 32 teams in the Sweepstakes Division, which also featured quite possibly the top team in the nation, Great Oak. Dillon Blake led the way, taking 27th place overall in the fantastic time of 14:38- not only a 24 second PR, but 14 seconds faster than any Mundelein runner ever over 3 miles. Robert St. Clair was next, also under 15 minutes, taking 64th in 14:59. The next 3 runners in all had huge PRs of at least 40 seconds- really unusual at the varsity level. Carter Schorr ran 15:16, Trevor Werner ran 15:25, and Sean Finerty ran 15:43. Dario Carrillo ran 16:01, but in doing so had maybe the most impressive performance of all. Dario got knocked down at the first turn, getting spiked in the face, upper thigh, and calf. Dario picked himself back up and re-engaged, regaining contact with the rest of the team. When he went by me the first time at about the 1200m mark I had no idea what had happened, but I could see the determination in his face. This is what cross country is all about.....
Whether we ever get the chance to go to California again, the experience and confidence we gained was worth it. This week we get to take what we learned and apply it at the Palatine Invite, another high quality meet. Hope to see you all there.

Girls Cross Country
Great day at Warren invite today! 2 in the top 20 at the F/S level, 1 in the top 20 in the Open, and 2 in the top 30 at Varsity level! Varsity also took 6th as a team! Plus 15 Season PRs with 5 additional Career PRs! Girls are looking stronger and faster every day!

It might be tough to get to 34 this season.But Mundelein running back Shawn Patrick will find the end zone quite a bit. He seems to have a knack for it.Patrick scored 34 touchdowns last season as the quarterback of Mundelein's freshman team that went 6-3."We could tell last year that Shawn was going to be special," Mundelein coach Larry Calhoun said. "It's hard to get a handle on him and he knows how to find (the end zone). He's going to be a good weapon for us at this level." On Saturday afternoon, Patrick was just that, showing that he can make big plays as a varsity player too. And at a position other than quarterback. Patrick scored 3 touchdowns to lead Mundelein to a big 48-6 North Suburban Conference win over host Waukegan. With the victory, Mundelein improves to 2-2 on the season and 1-1 in the league. Waukegan drops to 0-4 (0-2). On the game, Patrick rushed for 94 yards on just 10 carries. Also the Mustangs' backup quarterback, Patrick ran the offense late in the game and completed a pass for 10 yards. It was a familiar position for him. "I liked getting to play a little quarterback. That was fun," Patrick said. "Playing quarterback last year was fun. I probably score more at quarterback. "But I'm not that tall. I'm 5-6, 5-7. So it's harder to play quarterback up here (at the varsity level) than it was on the freshman team. I'll do whatever I can (to help the team) up here on varsity." Patrick got Mundelein on the board quickly after a Waukegan turnover on a fumble. He scored on a 6-yard touchdown run just three minutes into the game.The Mustangs scored their second touchdown off another Waukegan fumble, this time on a 36-yard run by starting quarterback Isaac Wellman. On the game, Mundelein scored 3 touchdowns on 5 of Waukegan's lost fumbles.

"Turnovers, turnovers," Waukegan coach Jonathan Hadnott said with dismay. "It's hard to recover from that right there. When you spot a team that many points, I don't care what level you play at, that's a tough bounce back right there." By halftime, Mundelein had built a 34-6 lead. The Mustangs also got a pair of touchdown passes from Wellman. He hit Eli Daugs for a 40-yard touchdown and Atade Syam for a 1-yard touchdown. And just before halftime, Edder Rebollar picked off a Waukegan pass and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown. Waukegan's only score came just before halftime on a 38-yard pass from Giovanni Quinones to Mishaun Riddle. "We're strong and we can make plays, but we just don't focus enough and that's why we make so many (turnovers)," Quinones said. "And it does (build on itself). Sometimes people think we're going to turn the ball over before it even happens. We've got to change our mindset." The only scoring in the second half was 2 touchdowns by Patrick. It set up a running clock for Mundelein's biggest win of the season. "I'm excited," Patrick said. "I see great things ahead for us. This is a really good group of guys."
