"It was an exciting start to the game as Yvie Gerber '21 scored in the first 30 seconds, assisted by Suzie Newton '18. The same girls switched roles for the second goal, with Suzie Newton scoring off a pass from Yvie Gerber. Lena Ansari '19 scored the third goal off a tip from Izzy Moody '18 on a corner. Isa Blankers '18 made the fourth goal with assists from Suzie Newton and Annie Gifford '20. Yvie Gerber tipped in a high shot from Izzy Moody for her second goal of the game, and Sarah Tobin '18 scored the sixth goal of the first half with assists from Isa Blankers and Lena Ansari.

In the second half, Lena Ansari took the ball about 75 yards, beating the vast majority of the opponents, and scored the seventh goal of the game unassisted. Yvie Gerber scored the eighth and final goal of the game.

The final score was 8-0 in favor of LFA. Goalie Lily Bellino '20 earned her first win and recorded a shutout. Player of the Game goes to Yvie Gerber!"

Boys Varsity Soccer @ Lake Forest High School Tournament - 8.22/8.24/8.26.17

"Another soccer season has begun!

On Tuesday, we played Deerfield, winning 2-1. David Oluwale '21 had his debut with an assist to Carlo Castillo '19 for a goal midway through the first half. LFA was up 1-0 at the half. 20 minutes later, Ian Strudwick '18 set up Chris Morrison '18 with a beautiful cross for another goal. Deerfield came back with a goal but LFA held them off for the remainder of the game.

On Thursday, we played Round Lake. We saw the group come together to come back from being down 2-0 at the half. Ian Strudwick scored our first goal off of a penalty kick, and Tyler Medvec '19 assisted Sergio Hernanz '19 with another goal to tie the game. Unfortunately, Round Lake snuck in one more goal, ending the game 2-3.

On Saturday, we played Lakes of Antioch for 3rd place. Our boys were tired after a long week of practice and two games. We held possession of the ball and dominated the first half, but after a hard fight, Lakes took the game for a final score of 0-3.

Head Coach Paul Makovec and I look forward to another great season. We play in the annual Evanston tournament this week. Our first home game is against Round Lake on September 5."

A 25-Year-Old Tradition

LFA officially opened its doors today for its 161st academic year, and a brand new start means another All-School Handshake! Starting at 9:15 a.m., the LFA community gathered in the Formal Gardens to continue this 25-year-old tradition. After the coin flip by Head of School Dr. John Strudwick to determine the direction of the handshake, he and this year's All-School President, Dieter Villegas '18, began shaking the hands of students, faculty, and staff. By the end of the hour, all 436 students had shaken, high-fived, and fist-bumped the hands of their peers.

The tradition started during the 1992-1993 school year when Thomas and Mary Ann B. "Bondy" Hodgkins were Heads of School. The All-School Handshake brings LFA together after a summer away from campus, and serves as a great way for every member of the community to greet each other. Happy New Year!!
