4/24/2014 Baseball's Roberts Chosen as IHSA Student Advisory Committee Member
Varsity baseball player John Roberts is someone other people can look to for guidance. That is especially true now as he was recently chosen to be a member of the Illinois High School Association Student Advisory Committee. Roberts was selected from a large group of outstanding nominees. As a member of the committee, Roberts will attend various meetings at the IHSA office in Bloomington, IL. The first meeting will take place on Sunday, April 27, 2014. He will participate in discussions and help to sculpt the future of IHSA athletics. Roberts was nominated for the honor by baseball head coach Bill Gerny. "John has been really committed to classroom excellence and success in baseball," Gerny said. "He is a leader in the program and sets the tone through example – he's one of the hardest-working players in the program. I'm glad the IHSA recognized him by selecting him for this committee."
4/23/2014 Lights Out For Dancing With the Spartans
No one wanted to see it end. Oak Lawn Community High School’s Dancing with the Spartans took its final steps on April 11, 2014, with an all-star cast of alumni, teachers, students, and professional dancers from the Fred Astaire Dance Studio. Per tradition, teachers and students dedicated their time and hearts to dance lessons and fundraising to fight Duchenne, a form of muscular dystrophy that math teacher Shannon DeMatteo’s son Jack was diagnosed with at a young age. Highlights of the night included an alumni opening dance comprised of dancers from the last five years, a second performance in Dancing with the Spartans by Jeremey Cryan, who awed the audience both with his grace and his crowd-cheering worm, and a closing Paso Doble by Dancing with the Spartans founder and dancer Eileen Jones with Fred Astaire professional Caleb Aleman.
4/15/2014 HighSchoolCube News: Mother-daughter duo paying dividends for Oak Lawn
Oak Lawn badminton coach Patricia Casey just needed to hear it from someone else. Juggling her coaching duties while trying to see her daughter, Melissa Greiman, play at Plainfield South as a freshman, Casey thought she was not giving either side the attention it deserved. “We really tried where I was coaching here, and she was playing in Plainfield,” Casey said. “I was upset because I felt like I was shorting people here and my daughter. I was torn between coaching and being a Mom.” But then Casey heard the advice that helped make her situation that much easier. “Another coach said ‘Watch your daughter play. Don’t feel guilty about watching your own kid play because it goes too fast,’” Casey said. “It was good advice.” So after her daughter’s freshman year at Plainfield South, Casey decided to move from Plainfield to Oak Lawn, allowing Melissa to transfer and play badminton with her Mom as her coach.
