completely overlapped, whether they 

know it or not. They have crossed paths, crossed 

lives, and ultimately shared experiences. The 
overlap happens every day. 

When first semester drew to a close, bitter¬ 
sweet good-byes to the old building swirled with 
the anticipation of what was to come. Rumors 
overlapped with the truth and when second 
semester began, the anxieties and fear of the 
unknown vanished. The new school was here 
to stay, but it was obvious that traces of the old 
school lingered around. Yellowing posters on 
brand new paint. Frail paper photo collages that 

barely survived the move. The old assimilated 
into the new and the state-of-the-art West Wing 
became Lake Central. 

Overlap is the way the past fades into the 
present. It’s when the construction-grade gravel 
blows into the parking lot or when the rumble of 
the bulldozers shake the third-story windows. It's 
how stereotypes collapse and the social lines 
blur. It’s when the school comes together to 
mourn a loss or celebrate a win or say goodbye 
to the place we called home.

On the night of Aug. 12, the night 
before the first day of school, stu¬ 
dents were unsure of what the next 
day would bring. They packed their 
backpacks, carefully laid out their 
outfits and looked ahead for the 
coming year. However, as the tran¬ 
sition from summertime to school 
began, they found that things were 
surprisingly ordinary. Sophomores, 
juniors and seniors were welcomed 
back by the same packed hallways 
and questionable drinking fountain 
water that they had left the previ¬ 
ous June. They faced the new year 
with the hope that the tips and 
tricks they’d learned in years passed 
would come in handy. Freshmen, 
too, hoped that what they had 

learned in middle school would carry^ 
over and ease them into the momen- # 
turn of the next four years. However, 
with all of the preparations they were 
making, they were still oblivious to 
the bigger changes yet to come, 3^] 
With construction underway for the 
famed new building, it would only 
be a matter of time before ordinary 
became a thing of the past. In a few 
months, their school year would not 
only overlap from summer to autumn, 
but old building to new. Until then, 
though, school would remain a mat¬ 
ter of the things that were left behind 
and the things carried over.

workers make progress in opening three-story academic wing 

I Since the referendum for Lake Central's new academic building was 
■pproved in Nov. 2011, controversy has stirred concerning the actual 

I “I heard there's going to be new classrooms with huge smartboards. 

I am really looking forward to the space and refreshing view as well," 
ICraig Bronson (10) said. 

I Mr. Bill Ledyard, Director of Facilities, and his construction team will 
[finish their project around Thanksgiving and move all furniture into the 

|new building by January. 

“The construction process has gone very well so far. We have an ex¬ 
cellent construction team. There’s lots of communication, and it has been 
a great team effort overall," Ledyard said. 

Some students are excited about getting a brand new school for their 
second semester. 

“The three floors seem exciting; I’m also really looking forward to the 
massive pool they have been building," Jacob Graziani (11) said. 

In contrast to the students excited about the move, some think mov¬ 
ing their books to the new school midyear will be time-consuming and 

“It’s annoying that I will have to learn a new locker combination and 
move all my stuff,” Melissa Spanier (11) said. 

It also poses some trouble for teachers having to move their personal 
belongings, files and textbooks. 

“I’m moving all of my stuff out. I am just hoping that my room will be big 
enough to hold all of it," Mr. Tom Clark, Social Studies, said. 

Despite the inconvienence, Ledyard feels there will be a lot of positive 
feedback from the students when they see the new building. 

“I believe that most students wiH be stunned by the new layout. From 
the reactions that we have already gotten from some community mem¬ 
bers, I think what the students will like the most will be the wide-open 
hallways and the new pool," Ledyard said.

Sophomore Colin Studer (10) steps 

The first game of the football season was more than the loss of a 
^SMgarne, but a loss of a crucial player. 

"1 Just a few minutes were left in the game against Munster on Aug. 

123 . In just seconds, quarterback Alec Olund (1 2) went from running 
■the ball to falling in pain. A Munster player speared his helmet into 
HOIlind's left hand, breaking both his hand and index knuckle. 

I i didn’t fumble [the ball], though,” Olund said. 

I With tears in his eyes, Olund watched as Colin Studer (10) was 
Icalled up to finish the game and begin his run as a sophomore starter. 
(The tears not only came from the pain, but also the unknown. 

“When it first happened, I was going through an extreme amount of 
pain. I didn't know how bad the injury was going to be. I didn’t know 
what was going to happen with baseball and if I was going to need 
surgery or not right away,’" Olund said. 

From the end of the Munster game, Studer stepped up to the start¬ 
ing quarterback position. 

“We obviously were disappointed that Alec went down, but when we 
started, Alec was really 1 A, and Colin was 1B. So we knew that we 

up to sub in for Alec Olund (1 2) 

weren’t really losing that much with bringing Colin in the game. Actu¬ 
ally in the first game, before Alec got hurt, Colin really played a big 
portion of the game," Coach Brett St. Germain said. 

Studer’s nerves and doubts were soothed by his teammates' encour¬ 

“All the varsity guys, and even the JV guys, they all give you support 
no matter what you do. In my case, it really got me pumped up and 
less nervous," Studer said. 

Statistically, Studer kept up with other quarterbacks of the past, 
which remained consistent with Olund's expectations of the sopho¬ 
more starter. 

“Colin got moved up [to varsity] as a freshman last year, so he’s really 
familiar with what we’ve been doing the past year and a half, and when 
I went down, I didn’t have any worries about when he would come in 
because he knows the offense. He knows what to do. He’s athletic 
enough to do what our offense requires from the quarterback position. 
When I went down, I knew we would be in good hands,” Olund said.

Over the summer, the principals and 
guidance counselors switched from the 
middle of the building to the far south 
end, distant from their original places. 

“It hasn't really had an impact. We’re 
in a different location, but we're still 
working with the same people and doing 
the same things," Mr. Marty Freeman, 
Assistant Principal, said. 

The guidance department downsized 
to two groups in T101 and T102. 
Despite the tight quarters, the coun¬ 
selors have been able to work efficiently. 

“It’s actually fun working with other 
guidance counselors and secretaries. 
Being close to everybody is the best 
thing," Mrs. Robin May, Guidance Coun¬ 
selor, said. 

The main, guidance and attendance offices 
are all in what was once the Freshmen Center. 
The main and attendance offices were moved 
to the former Freshmen Center office, while 
the guidance offices were moved to the T101 
and T102 temporary classrooms.

“It feels awesome [to be the

believe it because I never really 
started running until high 
school. I didn't really see 
it coming. I started on JV 
and worked my way up.

going to run Varsity. It came 
as a surprise. I had awesome 
teammates who pushed me 
to become better. I don't like 
[running] that much, but when 
I have people around me that 
support me through it, it’s re¬ 
ally fun and I enjoy it," Sydney

“I carpool because I have friends. I

school. Joey[Sawicki (12)] happens 
to live close to the school and it's 
on my way, so it works out. Plus, 
whenever I need help with a ride to 
school, like when I broke my collar 
bone and wasn't allowed to drive 
myself, Joey could help me out." 

Joseph Sawicki (12) 

“I carpool because I don’t always 
have a vehicle to use because my 
sister and I share it. This way, it's 
easier to get to and from school. I 
don’t have to wake up early to take 
the bus. It also works out because 
Josh [Engels (12)] broke his collar

Students face limits regarding parking passes 

In anticipation for the upcoming school year, students fret over schedules, 
looker locations, and especially the coveted “LC" plastic parking passes that 
■hold much value to junior and senior students. 

Because of construction, parking spaces were limited and fewer students 
vere originally issued passes. 

“[Parking at LC] is so convenient. If I didn’t have a parking pass, I would 
complain a lot," Alyssa Graziani (12) said. 

The lottery was open to all seniors with a valid license and vehicle, but many 
valked away empty-handed. Out of 811 seniors, 389 entered and only 341 got 
Ipasses. Some students decided against driving to school. 

“I don't mind [not driving to school]. [The bus] is a free drive. I don’t have to 
worry about anything else," Victoria Lydick (12) said. 

Others shared the wealth and split the ride. 

“I like carpooling because it helps save me gas money," Jessica Coniglio (12) 

For those with rides, the parking lot is a major convenience that gives stu¬ 
dents the opportunities to stay after for extracurricular activities, leave without 
the hassle of waiting for buses or go directly to work from school. 

“I really think all seniors that are involved in school activities deserve parking 
passes,” Graziam said. 

Luckily for the students who did not get passes, some spots opened up after 
the first few weeks of school. 

“We’ll be able to get a little bit more [available parking passes] once con¬ 
struction is done and [marching band] season is over," Principal Martin Free¬ 
man said. 

Although some seniors did not receive first pick, more parking passes were 
issued during the third and fourth weeks of school, relieving the students of 
their summertime sadness.

Stormy nights turn into Saturday night lights 

Picking up speed and spreading fast, a powerful summer storm 
Hilled m just in time to delay the first home game of the varsity boys 
pootball season. 

The game against East Chicago was originally scheduled for Friday, 
jAug. 30, but it was postponed to Saturday, making for an unusual oc¬ 
casion: Saturday Night Lights. 

“The team was really pumped for the game; we were ready to play. 
It was a nonconference home game, and I think we transitioned really 
•veil, playing on Saturday, because we all were amped up to play. We 
were just ready," Colin Studer (10) said. 

Studer, being the new starting quarterback, was nervous for his first 
home game. The rainy weather brought challenges to his position on 
the team. 

“It was my first home game so I was definitely nervous, but the team 

really had my back. Our field is always muddy, so the mud and the rain 
didn’t really affect the gameplan that much, but you do face some 
challenges when you’re throwing and trying to catch the ball,” Studer 

The severe weather conditions not only affected the players, but 
also the fans. Administrators brought the fans out of the storm and 
into the school in order to keep everybody safe. 

“It was weird waiting inside LC. The storm was pretty nasty, but I 
was glad I was waiting inside instead of trying to drive through that 
mess,” Eve Mendoza (12) said. 

Although the series of events was altered by the weather, it did not 
stop the team from winning that Saturday game under the lights 24-0.

students adjust to the new schedule, utilize extra time in class 

dy definition, the word “matrix” means a central element around which 
other elements form. For students and staff members, the Matrix hour 
| has become a major influence on their schedules. 

“[Study hall] is not always the most productive time for teachers and 
Students. Teachers would rather be teaching with students, and stu¬ 
dents could better serve themselves by not having to take as many study 
I halls if we have the proper courses for them to consider. Analyzing that, 

I it was determined that a full eight-period day was not a very efficient 
schedule, and we looked to having a seven period day. That seems 
Ho give the proper balance of having students take the right amount 
of courses-the core courses as well as electives,” Mr. Robin Tobias, 
Principal, said. 

The schedule itself has been a long time coming. In 1998, the adminis¬ 
tration switched from a traditional schedule, with eight classes a day, to 
block scheduling, which included eight periods split into two four-period 
days. With factors like state funding and teacher work days coming into 
play, the decision to omit eighth period was made. 

“It was easy to say that Blue days could be [periods] one, two, three 
and four, but our White days, eliminating eighth period, meant we had an 

extra period that we would need to account for. We can’t just dismiss 
school early on those days because we still have to meet standard re¬ 
quirements of a traditional day, but the thought was that, if we looked at 
our seven periods and recycled that back into the last hour of the day as 
a Matrix period, it would allow teachers and students to see each other 
at least 12 more times in a year," Mr. Tobias said. 

The Matrix schedule is a play off of the previous schedule. Blue days 
remain the same as previous years with first, second, third and fourth 
periods. On White days, after fifth, sixth and seventh period is the Matrix 
period. The Matrix hour follows the order of the classes from periods one 
through seven. 

“When we’re looking at our standardized tests, AP tests and other 
finals, [the Matrix] gave teachers and students a better opportunity to 
prepare for those that they normally wouldn’t. On the other end of the 
spectrum, it has allowed teachers to get creative with some topics and 
lesson plans that they normally wouldn’t have time for in the curriculum,” 
Mr. Tobias said.

Students have many science classes to 
choose from throughout high school. This 
large variety of choices include electives 
like Forensic Science. 

In Forensics, students do labs and get 
to experience everything hands-on. 

“We get to do a lot of cool labs. We 
get to play with blood and DNA and 
fingerprints," Mrs. Rachael Thomas, 
Science, said. 

After completing and passing 
Chemistry, students are allowed to take

Boys tennis tests strengths at double-day match 

Trorr^ept" TO Sept. 11, boys’ varsity tennis 
olayed a match against Chesterton High School 
|that was different from the usual circumstances. 

On Sept. 10, the match started around 4 p.m. 
and lasted until sunset. The coaches deemed the 
ne unplayable once it got too dark and stated it 
vould be better to resume it the following day. 

I wanted the meet to end [the first night] 
because I had the momentum," Luke Oboy (12) 

Typically, varsity plays two sets each match, each 
set containing six individual games. Sometimes, if 
the sets have tied up, they play another. 

Oboy had to play the remainder of his varsity 
singles match on Sept. 11, along with Eric Shrader 
(1 2) and Keith Crawford (9), who had to resume 
their doubles match. 

“I thought we could have finished [the match] 
that day. I wish it would have ended because then I 
wouldn’t have had to think about it," Crawford said.

While students stressed about finding Winter Formal 
dates, Kassie Woodworth (11) and Hannah Bryner (10) 
stressed about planning the entire dance. 

“I thought of it as planning a wedding," Woodworth 

Not only were Woodworth and Bryner in charge of all 
of the preparations for the event, but they also had the 
honor of picking the theme of the dance. 

“The theme is ‘Frozen in Time.’ We’re going to have 
big ice things with a clock in it," Woodworth said. 

Woodworth had a team of N-teens club members to 
help her, since N-teens is in charge of the dance. 

“[I am] going to have people come over and do an 
assembly line to assemble everything," Woodworth said, 
“It’s really stressful because everyone has their own 
ideas, [but] it was not that hard." 


days increased the pressure on the boys. 

“We were up in the third set and we were just 
about to finish and then it got too dark for us to 
play, so we had to play the next day. There was a 
lot [of pressure]. We had to win for our whole team 
to win," Shrader said. 

In order for advancement, Oboy had to win his 
singles match. 

“It felt pretty good [to win] after all the hard work. 
It took a lot of energy,” Oboy said. 

After that, the outcome of the game depended on 
Shrader and Crawford’s game, and the two did not 
disappoint their team. They won their match with 
a score of 3-2, which concluded the entire match 
with a win for the boys. 

“It was a true test of endurance and willpower. 
Seizing that conference win propeled us with 
success for the remainder of the season,” James 
Lafakis (11) said.

This year the girl's volleyball team held 
the first annual Bump Out Cancer event. 
The goal of this was to raise money for 
all cancer research. They held the event 
during Oct. 1 against Portage High 

This event rose a little over $6,000 for 
cancer research. Organizations were 
there to explain more about each cancer 
and how the procedures and medicines 
are used. The N.I.C.K organization 
(Northwest Indiana Cancer Kids), 

Cancer Resource Center, and Leukemia 
Lymphoma Society were all present at the 
volleyball match. 

Each survivor that showed up was given 
a lavender fish to wear to symbolize their 
survival of the fight against cancer. 

There were five adults and four children 
that survived cancer and attended the 
game. These survivors were recognized 
between J.V and Varsity matches. “Helping 
cancer patients was an indescribable 
feeling", said Julia Zlotkowski (10).

students filed into the gymna-

ican Red Cross was hosting their semiannual 
ilood drive and this National Honor Society 
iponsored event had a large turnout. 

“We signed up over 130 [people] to 
lonate," NHS sponsor Mrs. Rhonda York, 
English, said. 

After students register to participate, the 
actual donation process is not as tedious as 
many may think. 

“[The donation process] took a little over 
a half an hour, so it wasn’t that bad," Jacob 
Kleimola (10) said. 

Sometimes, however, the donation process 
does not always go according to plan. Nathan 
Zajac (11) found this out when he passed out 
while giving blood. 

“I was just sitting there watching [the blood] 
fill up in the bag, and all of a sudden I started 
feeling woozy," Zajac said. 

Zajac had to put his knees up to his chest to 
keep from being sick. 

“I had to wait 30 minutes [before I could 
go back to class] because I still felt kind of 
lightheaded," Zajac said. 

There are different types of donations to give 
when donating blood. One of these types 
is plasmapheresis, which is the removal of 
plasma from the blood stream. The blood is 
then transferred back into the donor’s body. 

“They just kind of convinced me to do it. 

They said, ‘You have this blood type and that’s 
the type we need.’ I was down there for two 
hours, but the process only took, like, 45 min¬ 
utes. I did it because I wanted to help more 
people," Anthony Pupillo (12) said.

Not only does Jillian Doan 
(11) dominate the soccer field, 
she is now taking over the foot¬ 
ball field as well. Doan has been 
playing soccer since she was just 
three years old. Since then, she has 
continued with her sport. Her constant 
training and practice has led to her 
success on Lake Central’s soccer team. 
Little did she know, the powerful soccer 
player she was would transform her into the 
first female football player on the team. 

“I thought it was pretty cool. The way you 
kick the ball is so much different. H was kind of 
awkward at first, but then I got the hang of it. It 
didr^t really affect soccer that much in the begin- 
f ningr Doan said. 

Doan never would have guessed that the varsity 
>fdotball coach would ask her to kick for his team. 

S' “Coach Saint told me to come try out, but mostly 
Tony Halterman and Mr. [Tom] Halterman, [Physical 
^Education], they were encouraging me to do it because 
_/hey know I have a pretty strong kick from soccer obvi¬ 
ously, so they like were the two main people. Gelen 
[Robinson (12)] and Johnny [Gbur (12)] were the kids that 
helped me out the most,” Doan said.^ 

Joining the football team was never a goal for Doan. 

“I never in a million years thought I would do football, but I 
tried out as a joke and I was actually good, and now I’m on the 

MV . 



* <* 



team," Doan said. k 

As a varsity soccer player, Doan’s schedule was already filled 
with games and practices. On top of soccer, she was handed 
a position as kicker; now she had to balance football with 
school and soccer. 

“It didn’t [conflict] at first, but [for soccer] in Sectionals, 
our games are on Thursdays and Saturdays, and I have 
to be at practice, and the Friday night games and my 
practices conflict. I go to practices, then right after, go 
to games," Doan said. 

Some people would think that a soccer player 
would excel greatly as a kicker on the football team, 
and Doan proved this statement true. 

“The strength and I think with the pressure of 
being on the soccer team, like obviously you have 
a lot of pressure with being the starting player, 
and like one of the leaders on the team, so I 
feel like soccer has helped me deal with tlje 
pressure," Doan said. 

Most sports players would want to focus 
all of their attention on their one dominant 
sport, but Doan does not fit into this 

“I love football. It’s so different...I get 
a lot of credit from doing it and a lot 
of props, so it’s a good experience,” 

Doan said.

student body swings into spirit week 

The halls of Lake Central were decorated top to bottom on Sept. 22 
in an effort to get the student body ready for the Homecoming game on 
Friday, Sept. 27. 

“My favorite part of spirit week is picking the theme and coming up with 
the decorations," Ms. Myra Lolkema, Student Council sponsor, said. 

Behind closed doors, prepping for the week and finding people to get 
the job done quickly and efficiently is not always easy; that is why the 
school relies on Student Council and the class cabinets. 

“I love [Sophomore] Class Cabinet, and being part of the school com¬ 
munity and representing my grade,” Sean Meyer (10) said. 

Student Council spent the Sunday before spirit week transforming the 
school halls into a safari. Student Council worked on decorating and 
deciding the themes for the week. 

“Each class had their own hall, most of the decorations were handmade, 
but some were bought to help enhance the look,” Ms. Lolkema said. 

The spirit themes chosen for the week included Monday as mismatched 
day, Tuesday as college day, Wednesday as twin day, Thursday as tie 
dye and Friday as blue and white day. Lake Central Publications held an 
Instagram contest for all of this week where people could tag their photos 
for each day to @lakecentralnews and hope that their picture would win. 

“It felt really good to win [for Missmatched Day], I was actually really 

scared that I wasn't going to win, I was a little discouraged that I'm not 
nearly as cool as the other people, I don’t have a lot of followers or any¬ 
thing, and personally I thought that the more people that saw my clothes 
the more they would get excited for spirit week,” Juliet Johnson (11) said. 

The Student Council was not the only group celebrating school spirit. 
The senior girls dressed extravagantly at the Homecoming game to cel¬ 
ebrate their final year of high school. 

“[This year] was a lot better than every other year. All of the senior girls 
got to wear their senior girls shirts. It was more fun because we got to 
wear pink,” Amelia Hiestand (12) said. 

Even though some of the students were not seniors, they still showed 
their school spirit by making creative, customized shirts. 

“It took four hours to make our shirts. We cut fringes on the bottom, 
put beads on, cut a heart out of the back and glued the lace on. We used 
rhinestones and iron-on letters to write on the shirt,” Amanda Roberts (11) 

Spirit week ended with the Indians winning against Michigan City 24-10. 

“Spirit week went well, I saw a lot of kids dressed up and a lot voted for 
[Homecoming] king and queen,” Ms. Lolkema said.

Varsity football proves a victory at homecoming 

' a week full of school spirit, students 
dressed up in homemade T-shirts and 
other spirit gear to support their Indians 
i the Homecoming football game against 
Michigan City. The evening started at the 
tailgate with friends and family. At 7 p.m., 
[the team was ready to take the field, but 
before kick-off the whole stadium took 
i moment of silence for LaPorte football 
player Jake West, who died that week of 
cardiac arrest during practice. 

“We all knelt down on the field as a team 
and honored Jake West. It was such a 
nice thing to do and it made me realize that 
you have to live life to its fullest because 
you never know what can happen to you," 
Logan Lambert (11) said. 

Also in honor of Jake West, every mem¬ 
ber of the team wore an orange sticker 
with the number 26, West's jersey number, 
on their helmets. Once the game officially 
started, the student section cheered the 
team through the first quarter. They espe¬ 
cially showed their excitementand support 
towards the team’s new kicker, Jillian Doan 
(11). Doan was the first girl to ever dress 
and play for the varsity football team. 

“We were doing a lot of chants and defi¬ 
nitely cheering on Jill, especially when she 
first kicked the ball. That was awesome,” 
Nathan Zajac (11) said. 

With a tied score of 10-10 at halftime, 
the game became more intense in the 
second half. The Indians pulled through 
and defeated Michigan City with a score of 
24-10. Shortly after the game, the Home¬ 
coming dance took place in the gym. 

Some of the students who had bought 
tickets ended up going out with their 
friends afterward instead of attending the 
dance. There were also complaints about 
the cost of the ticket and rumors about the 
dance not being fun. 

“You'd think because it was our senior 
year more people would go to the dance, 
but I was disappointed when I showed up. 

I actually ended up leaving early. A lot of 
my friends didn’t go because they heard 
that nobody was going and I guess the 
rumor just spread," Juan Lopez (12) said. 

Whether students decided to go to the 
dance or go out with their friends, they did 
it in celebration of the team's victory.

Tribe of Pride marches 
to Regionals 


After montH?of hard work and preparation, the Lake Central marching band 
won first place the Band of America Regionals competition in Toledo, Ohio. 

The competition consisted of 21 other bands. The Regional final was out 
of ten groups, and shortly after competing, the Tribe of Pride was marching its 
way to the National competition. After their win at University of Toledo’s Glass 
Stadium, the band continued their journey to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapo¬ 
lis. The band prepped for Nationals by reviewing their pieces and touching up 
any final issues. 

“We are cleaning up our show, we shift the focus on to our basic tech- 
ique. We also do a lot of run throughs," Emmanda McKenzie (10) said. 

The band is rehearsing the songs “Scary World”, “Imaginary World” and 
“Thoughtful World” daily. 

“‘Scary World’ is my favorite because it is so upbeat and there are many 
changes in the melody," Megan Gabe (10) said. 

Having a new piece with a creative twist, helps the band unite in harmony. 

The ballads are well-performed when the tempo is slower and the mood is 
more calm. 

“I was nervous, scared, and happy all at the same time while performing. 
Music moves you in an indescribable way. Each part was different. One was 
scary, one was nice. Moods change with the music," Amber Poortenga (10) 

The next step is figuring out what the Tribe of Pride needs to do to make 
it through the finals at Nationals. The band practices hard and long almost

“[Nationals] will definitely be a lot tougher just because there will be a ton 
of competitors there. But I think if we just work off what we did at the last 
competition I think we’ll have a good chance to do well. Usually we don’t 
make the top bands, but I think we can this year," Griffin Taylor (10) said.

ations, displays and tears were all part of volleyball senior 
night on Oct. 8th. The honoring of the two seniors took place in their 
ne gymnasium. 

“Senior night was very surreal because we put in so much time and 

ffort in four years, so it felt really good having all the girls celebrate 
vith us," Katherine Stepaman (12) said. 

The underclassmen put together tables filled with gifts that were 
dicated to the seniors. They received gifts such as blankets, candies, 
aictures. posters, pillows, flowers and balloons. Megan Malatestinic 
(12) received a hamster that was spray-painted pink. 

“It was nice to be honored. I have been looking forward to it for the 
past four years," Malatestinic said. 

The varsity team had a very successful season. For the first time in 
school history, the team won first place in the Duneland Athletic Con¬ 
ference. The seniors will leave the volleyball program with a sectional 
title, a regional title and a first place conference title. 

“All the summer conditioning [was] very stressful, but it all paid off in 

the end," Stepanian said. 

Heartfelt speeches were given to each senior by younger volleyball 
players and coaches. Although the emotional night was bittersweet, 
the seniors will leave the program with laughter and happy memories. 

“I’m excited, but I wish I was younger so that I still had more to look 
forward to,” Malatestinic said. 

As captains, the seniors led the volleyball program. They set positive 
examples and displayed good character for all the younger players in 
the program. 

“[The seniors] are excellent leaders, and they bring a lot of energy 
and a lot of experience to our team this season. Obviously, we rely on 
them on and off the court. I’m really excited to have the two of them 
leading the pack," Coach Tina Tinberg said. 

Ending senior night on a good note, the varsity volleyball team 
achieved a victory against the Merrillville Pirates.

for the past three years to raise money for the American Heart Asso¬

The Red Out was the theme of the game where all fans wear red in 
support of the American Heart Association. In addition to the student 
section representing the fundraiser, the football team participated by 
wearing red accessories during the Red Out. 

“It's definitely something I would continue to support in future sea¬

Red Out brings everyone closer,” Michael Goin (12) said. 

Aside from change in color, the game was far from ordinary. The 
Indians were facing their rivals, the Merrillville Pirates, for the Duneland 
Athletic Conference Championship. Lake Central players were advised 
not to use social media during the week of the game because of the 
conflicts that occur between the players.

On the evening of Oct. 11, fans and players gathered at the Burial 
Grounds with excitement as the game began. The fight for the win 
started right after kickoff. 

The Pirates returned the Indian’s kick for a touchdown. However, the 
favor was returned when Alec Olund (12) returned the Pirates’s kick 
to the Pirates’s 10-yard line. By the end of the first half, the score was 
tied 14-14. The battle had only just begun at the start of the second 
half. The Pirates scored another touchdown; however, they did not get 
the extra points. This left the score at 20-14, the Indians down by six. 

After another quarter of fighting and anticipation, the time was up 
and Lake Central lost. The final score was 20-1 7 Pirates, but this loss 
did not defeat the Indians for good. Sectionals were a few short weeks 
away and fate was on their side when the revenge-seeking Indians

“What [West Lake students] learn is appropriate behavior in public 
places and how to interact with other people socially. For example, in 
[the grocery store, they learn how to pay their bills,” Mrs. Debbie Stack, 
Vest Lake teacher, said. 

West Lake students aren’t the only people who benefit from these 
ommunity trips. Peer mentors join the West Lake program to gain 

experience with the students. 

“Some of the other peer mentors have talked about how much fun 
they had being one. My mom is also a special education teacher at 
Kolling Elementary School,” Daniella Dombovic (12) said.

years. Each week West Lake students, teachers and peer mentors 
arrive at a new destination. Their many field trips include traveling to 
stores and restaurants around town. 

“I feel like they learn how to do things on their own. I love going on 
these trips because I know I am helping them out. Going to Strack and 
Van Til and Target are my favorite. We hang out at Starbucks and the 
cafe there," Dombovic said. 

Throughout the year, the trips the students take help them learn adult 
responsibilities for the future. 

“They get to go out in the community and practice adult roles by 
buying groceries and dealing with money. I feel like it gives them their 
own sense of independence,” Dombovic said.

students recognize effects of bullying 
during Bullying Awareness Month 


Raising awareness of the bullying issue has become more and more 
prevalent in high schools. Not only are the victims of bullying affected, 
but teachers and other students are as well. 

“People sometimes bully others because they might feel insecure 
t themselves or they want to get a laugh out of other people and 
5 viewed as popular," Dr. Dustin Verpooten, Science, said. 

According to Verpooten, being aware of bullying and understanding 
Ithe feeling of humilitation is essential to stopping the problem. 

“Once you know firsthand what it feels like, you don’t want to make 
"others feel that way. You’re more conscious of others’ feelings,” Ver¬ 
pooten said. 

Some teens may even find themselves in difficult situations with their 

own friends. This situation can result in forms of bullying on a more 
personal level. 

“I’ve learned not to get in the wrong crowd. I just don’t really get 
super close with anyone too fast because the girl who bullied me the 
most was my best friend at first," Sarah Zlatic (9) said. 

It is important for those who witness bullying to take a stand. In 
most cases, those who are being victimized are not willing to stand up 
for themselves because they feel weak compared to the bully. 

“My advice is to just to do something because even the smallest 
thing can make a difference," Logan Sommer (10) said.

ITS Regional winners beat to the tune of their own drum 

I During the weeks leading up to Nov. 16, students in Lake Central 
Theater Company, LCTC, bustled to learn and perfect their play, 

“Drum Taps," for the chance to win an international thespian competi¬ 
tion called International Thespian Society regionals (ITS). 

“[The competition will be held at] Bethel College. The play is a 
sequenced collection of Walt Whitman poems about the American 
Civil War illustrating the shifting mood of the nation and of the soldiers 
themselves," Jonathan VanHecke (12) said. 

LCTC ran into an issue when auditions for this play were held. With 
a total of five characters, only the four following students showed: 
Adam Gustas (9), Jonathan VanHecke (12), Nichole Huesman (10) 
and Raquel Rembert (10). To solve the issue, Rembert and Huesmann 

each had a single character to play and shared the part of a second 

“Playing two roles was scary. It was double the lines to remember 
and confusing for me as well as the audience because both Nichole 
and I played Lizabeth," Rembert said. 

Although somewhat of a surprise that so few students joined, thes- 
pians continue to stay positive and hope to move on to state and then 

“Internationals will cost $800 per student due to airfare and hotels, 
however, if we make it past state, we plan to fundraise a majority of 
the costs," Gustas said.

New beginning, new start, new challenges, new solutions 

} transition into the new building that took place in December 
contained a variety of obstacles for teachers needed to be hurdled in 
order to make the the move a successful one. 

“We need to make a decision that promotes collaboration between 
|teachers by subject matter and grade level while minimizing student 
novement vertically between floors and horizontally between class¬ 
rooms," Mr. Robin Tobias, Principal, said. 

The move is scheduled to take place in early December, but 
|room assignments will be emailed to faculty during the first week of 
November. Some teachers, such as Mrs. Chris Colle, Art, had more 
items to pack than others. 

“We have multiple projects [to move] between all the classes, and 
we haven’t had time. Before I leave, I have to end the semester and 
start again right away. When it gets all packed and unpacked is my 
dilemma. I’m going to have to get students to help me; it’s going to 
be interesting. It’s going to be challenging, but the key is [buying the 
students] pizza,” Mrs. Colle said. 

Many teachers had memorable or special items that had to be 
moved into their new classrooms, but some items couldn’t be moved. 
Mr. Paul Volk, art wasn’t changing rooms, but he wanted to save the 
murals in the hallway from demolition. However, not all of them could 
be moved. 

“The murals in the hallway will be lost if we can’t move them suc¬ 
cessfully. If they’re glued, we’ll lose all that artwork. They have to be 
documented photographically before they’re destroyed," Mr. Paul 
Volk, Art, said. 

The design of the new building was created to allow for more 
coordination between teachers and clear the hallway congestion that 
plagued Lake Central’s corridors. 

“Each room is expected to have uniform technology that teachers 
can use for instructional purposes. As for the hallways, they’re ex¬ 
pected to be wider, and there will be more of them," Mr. Tobias said.

Business classes 
roast Mr. Clark 

"^ve^/eaHh^Sod drive has been a competition between the 
classes. A rivalry, formed last year, continues at high stakes. On Oct. 

10, Mrs. Terri Budlove, Business, was ranting on about state stan¬ 
dards in her 7th-hour Advanced Business Management class when 
Patrick Delis (12) said, “Let’s steal Mr. Clark’s turkey.” 

That statement was the signal for the turkey run to begin. The class 
then began to plot their attack to capture Mr. Tom Clark's, Social 
Studies, beloved turkey because he treated the turkey as if it was 
Mrs. Budlove. 

“So, I decide to take all 35 of my Business kids downstairs. We 
snuck down the stairs like ninjas, very quietly and stealthily. Two stu¬ 
dents went in and asked if they could take a picture with Mr. Clark 
and the turkey. He went and grabbed the turkey and acted all cheesy. 
Then they asked if they could take a picture in the front of the room 
because I was hiding in the hallway," Mrs. Budlove said. 

He then threw the turkey in the garbage, and that gesture was 
Budlove’s cue. She ran into the room, grabbed the turkey and 
booked it down C-hall back to her class. 

“Mrs. Budlove comes running in grabs the turkey and runs out of 
here like a football player. I chased her out the door and when I went 
out there was a wall of BIG, BIG boys! I was like no way. I mean, that 
would be like me going up against a brick wall. I was like no way and 
she just disappeared...! didn’t know that lady could move that fast, 
holy mackeral she was flying!” Mr. Clark said. 

The students could hear the chaos in the room and they prepared 
to make way for Mrs. Budlove and to block Mr. Clark. 

“So [Mrs. Budlove] starts running down the hallway and our entire 
class is blocking the door. We parted for Mrs. Budlove to get through 
and then got real close so Mr. Clark couldn’t get through if he tried. 
She is running down the hallway, and Mr. Clark starts yelling, ‘Hey, 
hey, you've got my turkey’,” Brandy Gabe (12) said. 

Once they got in the classroom, Mrs. Budlove had an idea of how 
to use their stolen turkey to help the food drive. 

“We are ransoming off the turkey, and he can get his turkey back 
when the ransom is met," Mrs. Budlove said.

N-Teans helps illuminate the community 


I N-Teens volunteered at the Light The Night Walk 
nosted by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on 
Saturday. Oct. 19, at 6:15 p.m. at the Lake County 
Fairgrounds. The walk was taking place simultane¬ 
ously at different locations across the nation. Four 
teams participated in the walk, each raising between 
$2,000 and $7,000 for cancer research, shining a 
light on those affected. 

“The walk is our way of showing support for blood 
cancer. States from all over the nation participate, 
and the participants carry balloons which is where 
the name comes from because they light the night. 
Gold balloons are for those walking in memory of 
someone, white is for survivors, which includes those 
undergoing treatment, and red is for the supporters,” 
Ashley Clark, Revenue Manager of the Illinois chap¬ 
ter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, said. 

N-Teens is a volunteer organization run by Mrs. 
Kelsey Becich, English. Throughout the year, stu¬ 
dents take part in volunteering for different events in 
the community. Students shed light on organizations 
in need of support. 

“N-Teens is a good way to spread community 
awareness and get more people involved with school 
and helping out. Helping people out is easier than 
it may seem. I’m going to do more walks because I 
enjoyed helping out, and it’s not a lot of time out of 
my life to help improve someone elses," Julia Gruver 
(10) said. 

The Illinois chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma 
Society decided to bring the walk to Northwest 
Indiana because many Cancer 
patients of the area receive treatment at 
Chicago hospitals. This was the first time the chap¬ 
ter has ever come to the area and, given the positive 
experience, staff members are eager to return. 

“I liked that they were bringing [the walk] over to 
Indiana because I have had personal experiences 
with people affected by these cancers. It warmed 
my heart, and it’s part of the reason that I signed up 
for the event," Gruver said. 

With only four staff members present, the willing¬ 
ness of volunteers to sacrifice their time was much 
appreciated. The roles of the volunteers ranged from 
hanging up signs to working at registration booths to 
interacting with young children. 

“Our volunteers fulfill our walks. They really make 
them happen. There are so many people and not 
enough staff, so that’s where the volunteers come 
into the picture. We have four staffers here tonight 
and about 50 volunteers. There will be about 500 
walkers here, too. Chicago is expected to have 
5,000. That’s a lot more, but the meaning is still the 
same. We’re all just trying to raise awareness and 
find a cure,” Clark said.

As the months passed and the weather 
grew colder, the school was ready for a 
makeover. Trash cans were situated un¬ 
der breaks in ceiling tiles where water 
had leaked through, principals and of¬ 
ficers stood at the entrance of E-Hall to 
direct traffic and students joked about 
which water fountains had drinkable

but rather “When can we go see it?”

acked, prepared, and proceeding into the new school 

Since the last update, more preparations have been made for the new year. 
Lockers and other materials have been installed for use by students and 


“Lockers will most likely be organized by grade level, and they are notice¬ 
ably wider. All of the freshman lockers will be located in the South Wing, 
also known as the Freshman Center. All of the sophomores will mainly be on 
the first floor, juniors on the second and all the seniors will have third-floor 
dockers. However, since we have teachers that teach various grades, we 
will have a variety of grade levels on each floor,” Mr. Robin Tobias, Principal, 

The organization of the classrooms has been made to minimize student 
traffic between wings. New details of the building include the addition of 
SMART boards, projectors, science activity tables and cabinetry. Once the 
construction is finalized, a new phase of the project will begin. 

“Eventually, the assistant principals, secretaries and the guidance counsel¬ 
ors that are in the [T-hall] rooms right now will move into new offices. Once 

the north side of the building gets demolished and the foundation gets set, 
they will start to build on the new main entrance, the new gym, new audito¬ 
rium as well as our new office areas right around the upper E-hall area," Mr. 
Tobias said. 

Final inspections are currently being made on the new building, such as 
fire alarm testing, temperature controls and sprinkler checks. 

“The biggest thing in the month of November was inspections. This includ¬ 
ed the mechanics like plumbing and the final electric, like the fire alarms. We 
have passed all those inspections,” Bill Ledyard, Director of Facilities, said. 

Construction will continue until students and staff move to the new build¬ 
ing after Christmas break. 

“We’ve already started the next phase of construction. The band practice 
area and the Fine Arts wing wasn’t supposed to be started until spring, but 
we had enough room to start that,’’ Mr. Ledyard said.

Forensics students participate in 
lab to study DNA through gel 

dost students do not come to school thinking they will learn to use 
DNA to catch criminals. However, in Mrs. Rachael Thomas’s Forensics 
class, that is exactly what her students were asked to do in a lab. 

On Nov. 5 and 6, students began their two-day lab, which consisted of 
comparing four different DNA samples to a “suspect” sample. Once they 
|found a sample that matches their “suspect” sample, their investigation is 
complete. In order to do so, students had to inject the DNA samples into 
small holes on a block of gel. 

“[The lab] was fun. It was kind of interesting, but I feel like we needed 
different material and a better explanation on how to do it and what 
we were supposed to be looking for. We literally held the gel blocks 
together with tape,” Alyssa Flens (12) said. 

The students used basic tools and equipment to complete the pro¬ 
cedures. Tape held the gel blocks ends together, and a very thin needle 
was the tool to inject the DNA into the gel. 

“The lab did a good job of demonstrating how DNA is applied in real 

life crime," Richard Rucinski (11) said. 

The main purpose was to allow students to understand the concept of 
DNA in school work and the real world. Cooperating with other students 
in the class helped demonstrate not only work relating to forensics, but 
also how to collaborate with others in groups. 

“It was fun to do [the lab]. It was kind of hard to do, though. We had to 
eject the gel plate into the DNA and match up the DNA. I worked with 
[Michael Flores (11)] and [Cody Schultz (11)]. I want to be a detective 
when I’m older, that’s why I took forensics," Matthew Druzbicki (12) said. 

Forensics is not a required class to take. Students can take it if they 
are interested in that type of career. 

“The class was a good introduction to the field of forensic science 
and that it was interesting to anyone who wants to pursue a career in 
forensic science one day," Rucinski said.

ith the clock running down, the screaming 
stands and pressed their bodies against the fence during the final sec¬ 
onds of the Sectional game. The students tried to contain their emo- 
|tions as they waited patiently for the fourth quarter to end. Although the 
Sectional Championship game caused the fans’ adrenaline levels to raise, 
the stakes were higher for Regionals and the disappointment of the loss 
shattered the team. 

“Whenever you see a big student body out there, you always feel a lot 
better because you feel like the school is getting into what you’re doing. 
Whenever someone believes in you. that always gets you pumped up. 

The more people, the louder it is and the better the atmosphere is. They 
[the student section] really help out," Brandon Scott (11) said. 

After defeating Crown Point in the first round of Sectionals, the varsity 
football team took on Merrillville for the Sectional Championship on Nov. 

1. They white washed the Pirates with a score of 31-0. 

“It is always something special to finally beat a team that has beat you 
16 times in a row in any sport, at any level of what you’re playing at. It 
really felt good to move LC towards the right direction in football," Alec 
Olund (12) said. 

Lake Central, who had fallen to Merrillville in the beginning of the sea- 

, finally came out on top after 11 years and 16 consecutive games < 
losing to Merrillville. The Sectional win was also the first Sectional title the 
football team has claimed as their own in 14 years. 

“It was an honor being a part of the first team that won a Sectional title 
in 14 years, especially winning it with all of the seniors. It was just so 
special," Jakob Brown (10) said. 

After the win against Merrillville, the team advanced to Regionals on 
Nov. 8 against Penn. The team lost with a score of 33-6 and did not 
advance to Semi-State. As the team knelt down and listened to their 
coaches final words of the season, tears filled both the players’ and the 
fans' eyes. 

“After a loss you never really want to talk to anyone or hear anyone, 
but whatever the coach says at the end is always reassuring and gets 
you over the mental hump of ‘you just lost and you’re ready for the next 
season,’” Scott said. 

Although the season ended on a loss, the football team ended the year 
with a record of 9-3.

varsity girls start season with unexpected hardships 

( Girls varsity basketball began the season with the loss of a few team- 
nates due to injury, but still tried their best to keep up with games from 
he start of the season without Alyssa Todd (10) and Rachel Bell (10). 
“The season has started out well, as expected, [and] we only had one 
oss so far, and that loss we learned from, so it won’t happen again," 
Rolanda Curington (12) said. 

Although the team had their fair amount of winning games, the two 
individuals cope with stress over their injuries. 

“I tore my ACL at the Merrillville fieldhouse two weeks before tryouts 
for LC [on Oct. 20]. I was really upset for weeks about not being able to 
play my whole sophomore year," Todd said. 

The students also had their own opinions on the season with losing 
two teammates. 

“Losing two of our sophomores, who would have helped us tremen¬ 
dously, due to ACL problems was really devastating but coaches were 
able to make the necessary adjustments to continue with a successful 
season. Sadly, I will not be able to play with those two outstanding play¬ 
ers because they won't be back until the summer," Curington said. 

Even though the teammates with injuries cannot play, they still continue 

to participate in the girls’ games. 

“It is really hard not being able to play at all this season, but I’m happy 
I get to still cheer for my team. Rachel Bell (10) and I cheer on our team 
and give them words of encouragement," Todd said. 

Todd takes in the fact that she will not play for the rest of the season, 
which leads to her thinking of the positive alternatives. 

“Now it still sucks, but I have realized that the only thing I can do is 
come back stronger next year. I will be fully released to play basketball 
again within the first couple weeks of summer,” Todd said. 

Final thoughts of the season extenuate the teammates feelings for the 
rest of the year. 

“Personally, the season everyone will be in for a surprise on what we 
will accomplish as long as my teammates keep doing all the little things 
we will definitely make it far, so just be ready to hear about Lake Central 
girls basketball," Curington said. 

As final thoughts, the team is ready for what the season is going to 
bring to them, with losses and wins.

fall show gives a witty take on a classic tale of justice 

Juring 1 

ling i 

} weekend of Nov. 21, the auditorium was transformed into 
Sherwood Forest with the performance of “The Somewhat True Tale of 
Robin Hood." 

I thought [the performance] was good. It was very different, my portray- 
I a man, because you have to do a bunch of different characteristics 
and, in the end, it was really stressful," Lauren Bourget (1 2) said. 

The show follows the title character, Robin Hood, as he plots to defeat 
Jthe evil Prince John. Struggling to keep all of his well-meaning Merry Men 
"under control, Robin Hood embarks on a journey to obtain the beautiful 
Lady Marian’s hand in marriage. 

“Once I put on my fancy medieval dresses, it made me feel more like a 
princess and helped me get more into my character,” Alyssa Graziani (12) 

While some people were stepping into their dresses, others were step¬ 
ping into their first roles in Lake Central Theater. Although William Kruzan 
(9) was a technician backstage, he was asked to play a small roll onstage 
at the last minute in order to add humor to the show. 

“I was not nervous at all when they asked me to do it because I had 
been in previous performances at my middle school. The seniors were also 
very helpful in making me feel comfortable," Kruzan (9) said. 

Many seniors partcipated in the fall show, so this was an opportunity for 
the underclassmen to learn from them and prepare themselves for next 

"I thought it was a great experience because I got to be in the last show 
with all the seniors and meet new people, like the freshmen. I also met 
some new juniors and sophomores," Brett Balicki (10) said. 

“Robin Hood" was the last fall show put on in the old auditorium. Many 
would find this to be a sad time, but some cast and crew members, like 
Bourget, found the experience more sweet than bitter. 

“It was different because I'm a senior. It was my last. I was trying to 
make it the best I could. It just felt like a family this year. Nobody really 
hated each other and we all had a good bond together,” Bourget said.

how we can improve," Coach David Gnaden

students search for the lowest deals and 

best finds over fall break 

he anticipation grew as people stood in line waiting to get the hottest 
"deals of the season. Whether it’s for the shoppers themselves or others, 
chaos was surely expected. People prepared for door-buster sales as the 
Black Friday shopping begins. 

“I went Black Friday shopping with a group of my friends. We left at 
about 9:30 p.m. I felt like we had good timing and got there at a decent 
time. My friends and I [stayed out] probably until 6 a.m.," Hannah Pratt 
(10) said. 

The stores carry limited-time sales, offering the lowest prices of the sea¬ 
son. Stores with electronics and clothing are the most common destina¬ 
tions for shoppers. 

“I [shop] for myself and my friends [on Black Friday]. The best deals are 
probably on electronics,” Tiffany Polyak (11) said. 

Many shopper’s competitive side was drawn out on Black Friday as they 
race to store entrances hours before opening. Some stores opened late 
on Thanksgiving night to attract more customers and increase their sales. 


“I think that stores should open at midnight on Friday, instead of 6 p.m. 
on Thursday night. Thanksgiving is a time for families to be together, and 
Black Friday starting late Thursday night definitely cuts into that," Pratt 

Cyber Monday is similar to Black Friday, offering the same deals, except 
online. This takes place the Monday following Thanksgiving, offering 
shoppers another chance at the deals. 

“I like Cyber Monday better because that’s when all the best deals hap¬ 
pen, and I also don’t have to deal with the crowds and chaos of Black 
Friday," Paige Carter (10) said. 

Whether it was for Black Friday or Cyber Monday, many students partici¬ 
pated in this shopping frenzy. 

“I like the fun of it. The sales don’t really mean anything," Polyak said.

rWith a new school comes new equipment. As the old 
fJBMequipment is given to other schools within the corpora- 
tHWtion or auctioned off, new equipment is placed in each 
Vof the new classrooms. 

■ “Before the demolition process, we will have a public 
^auction for anything that is leftover: doorknobs, doors, 
\idoor frames, student desks, bookshelves or anything 
else not being used in the new school. There will be 
about a two-week process just for the public to come 
in," Mr. Robin Tobias, Principal, said. 

Each new classroom will be furnished with new student 
desks and chairs. 

“[The desks and chairs] can move independent of each 
other, so teachers will have flexibility to create different 
classroom, conversation and group work arrangements 
that normally wouldn’t happen in the old school," Mr. 
Tobias said. 

In addition to the new student desks and chairs, the 
rooms will also have updated technology. 

“Since I won’t be using my overhead projector 
anymore, the classroom will be less paper and more 
electronic," Mrs. Rose Kennedy, Spanish, said. 

Classrooms will have an upgraded SMART Board 
with interactive projection features. They will not have 
chalkboards anymore; instead, dry-erase boards will be 

“The new SMART projectors project right onto a white 
board and it will have a fingertip-interactive technology 
to better presentation capabilities," Mr. Tobias said. 

Additionally, art classes will be getting new kilns and 
pottery areas, the auto shop will be receiving new lifts 
and other tool devices and the cooking classrooms will 
contain new ovens, sinks, refrigerators and dishwashers. 
Teachers will receive new computers in each classroom. 
The new equipment will greatly benefit teachers and 
how they run their classes. 

“The old electricity really affects how we have to run 
labs and now we will be able to complete these labs 
more effectively,” Mr. David Harnish, Chemistry, said. 

Along with benefitting the teachers, the modern equip¬ 
ment will help benefit the students as well and create an 
easier learning environment. 

“From what I hear there is a lot more space for the 
labs and more experiments can be done. I also hear that 
there will be more safety precautions," Marc Garcia (10) 

The new school will increase productivity levels in the 
classroom because of access to state-of-the-art tools.

^^asoned teachers anticipate 

A^TOecember 2013, the North Wing of the building will be 
nothing but memories. However, Mr. Thomas Clark, Social Studies, 
nd Mr. Ron Fredrick, English, have already focused on incorporat¬ 
ing history into their classrooms. 

Since the beginning of his teaching career, Mr. Clark has taught in 
oom Cl 03. Over the course of 31 years he has collected hun- 
reds of historical artifacts and was inspired to center his room 
round them after a student-teacher brought WWII items to share 
✓ith the class. 

“I’m a more hands-on type of teacher. Students appreciate learn¬ 
ing more when you bring stuff in. American history isn’t all about the 
dates; it’s about feeling the history. History is storytelling,’’ Mr. Clark 

When Mr. Fredrick began teaching 1 7 years ago, the walls of his 
room were blank. After students began asking why the room was

their future while cherishing the past 

“To move all the pictures would be virtually impossible. The 
pictures will stay with this room. They are this room. They will stay 
here,” Mr. Fredrick said. 

The technical aspects of moving are difficult enough to work 
around, but it is often harder to maneuver around the emotions and 
their affects. 

“I will miss it tremendously. It just hit me this morning that I'm not 
going to have this anymore. I look at the walls and at all my former 
students all the time, coming and going. It was nice to remember 
them. I will miss it," Mr. Fredrick said. 

History has the power to impact each person in a different way. 

For Mr. Clark and Mr. Fredrick, history made its mark in their class¬ 

“As you get older, it gets harder to accept change, but you need 
to get over it. Even though it's painful to move on from what seems 
so familiar, change is good,” Mr. Clark said.

the varsity girls put up a fight 
lainst the Merrillville Pirates 

he varsity girls basketball team had a triumphant win 
against Merrillville. The Lady Indians broke the Pirate’s streak. It took a lot 
of preparation for the Lady Indians to win 66-57. 

“I think we improved a lot from last year. We knew what their strengths 
|were, and we put a stop to [them],” Ashley O’Malley (11) said. 

Last season the girls were consistently unable to win against Merrill¬ 
ville. This season, however, the Lady Indians went into the game with a 
|positive mindset. 

“We really focused on everything we [could] improve [on] and on their 
weaknesses. We also worked on our weaknesses and made them our 
strengths,” Rolanda Curington (1 2) said. 

A new mindset was not all the varsity girls changed from last year. 

They prepared themselves physically by following a strict schedule of 
practice and conditioning and strategically by watching their opponents 
play. The improved bond between coach and players also proved helpful. 

“This year we know [Coach Marc Urban, Physical Education] better, 


and he knows us more and the positions we can play. He put us in the 
right places and gave us the right roles," Gina Rubino (11) said. 

One Lady Indian in particular was quite familiar with how the Merrillville 
Pirates played the game. Jayla Harvey (11) transferred from Merrillville to 
Lake Central this year. 

“[Transferring] was weird because we played with each other for so 
long, but it was fun playing against [Merrillville]. However, I had the same 
drive. Just because [the Merrillville players and I] are friends, [that] didn’t 
mean anything. I play for LC, not Merrillville," Harvey said. 

Rubino was well-prepared and ready for this big game. As a shooting 
guard, she made 29 points throughout the game. Six of these shots were 

“We just maintained our focus throughout the whole game. We didn’t 
stop playing even for a minute because that would give them a chance to 
score," Rubino said.

Boys go head-to-head against the 
Eagles for basketball bragging rights 

The Fieldnouse filled with students, parents, and fans who had the op¬ 
portunity to watch the Indians face off against the Thea Bowman Leader¬ 
ship Academy Eagles on Dec. 13. 

“Coming into this game we were all looking forward to playing the 
seventh best team in the nation. The student section was packed and wild 
because everyone was so excited to see how this game would turn out,” 
Matthew Meneghetti (12) said. 

The boys gained the lead at the end of the first quarter with a score of 
1 7-6. As the game continued, the win became an outcome that could go 
either way. The crowd's cheers were deafening and rarely ceased. 

“Our team had a lot of turnovers. We played to their game instead of 
ours, which let them get ahead,” Joseph Bannister (11) said. 

The game ended with the Eagles being given the title of 2013 Class 
2A Basketball State Champions. This game would have granted a big win 

and bragging rights to Lake Central and the Region if it had gone in the 
Indians' favor. 

“As a team, I think we finished strong. The intensity level of the other 
team was different from what we’re used to. They’re all really athletic, so it 
was a fast-paced game," Amir Ransom (11) said. 

The score was a rollercoaster throughout the game, which encour¬ 
aged the crowds’ frantic cheers. After an intense battle, the Indians lost 
the game 63-58. The close score, however, showed that the team had the 
potential to really shine this season. 

“The student section was really crazy for this game. The atmosphere 
was fun, and even though we lost, it was a great game to be able to be 
at," Joule Tazbir (10) said.

theater company sings at 
Strack and VanTil 

)n Wednesday, Dec. 18, the Lake Central Theater Company went to 
Strack & Van Til to sing carols for the customers and raise money for future 
iproductions. This was the eleventh year that the theater members have car- 
loled at the Strack and Van Til grocery store. 

I “I would say that it was one of the more enjoyable experiences than years 
lpast because there was a large crowd of carolers, and there were a lot of 
shoppers that stopped to say thank you,” Mr. Ray Palasz, English, said. 

During the performance, the members had a donation box to collect con¬ 
tributions from passers-by. Emma Rose (12) held a collection box for these 
shopper donations while the customers did their shopping. 

“If people wanted to donate money to us, we had buckets there for dona¬ 
tions. We entertained the people we needed to and had a great time doing 
it and raised about $350 total," Aidan McCambridge (11), thespian society 
treasurer, said. 

Since 2003, theater students have taken part in this event that is now a 
tradition, and they intend to continue it for years to come. 

“This is my fourth year caroling with the company. My favorite part is just 
how much bonding you get to do with people, and I also think that the 
people walking by were happy to hear us," Rose said. 

The caroling is not only becoming a tradition, but something that the thes- 
pians begin to look forward to. 

“It’s tradition that we always bring cheer to my dark, dismal life,” McCam¬ 
bridge said. 

Even though this event has become a yearly tradition, the style of this 
year’s event was a little different than before. All of the students received 
caroling “scripts” with different pages, so they had to make up words as the 
caroling progressed. 

“The mix-up was pretty funny, and my favorite memory was probably 
when [McCambridge] and I sang a duet that only lasted about 30 seconds. 
Despite the mix-up, the group still performed with gratitude and enthusiasm. 
It was a lot of fun, and I look forward to doing it next year," Mr. Palasz said.

ludents discuss the different ways to celebrate the holidays 

Holidays are not always celebrated in the way they show in mov- 
|ies and television shows; it is not always done by leaving milk and 
cookies for Santa or hanging up stockings on the fireplace. Traditions 
change from family to family, so each student has his or her own way 
[to celebrate. 

“For Christmas Eve, I went to the Serbian Church and they had a 
huge bonfire, and then on Christmas we opened presents and had a 
huge dinner," Angelina Kapetanov (11) said. 

Because of different ethnicities or traditions passed down through 
families, every student that celebrates the holidays celebrates it a little 
bit differently. Students like Andrew Tellas (11) stray away from the 
conventional customs. 

“My parents hide the pickle somewhere in my house, and whoever’s 
the first person to find it is the one that gets to open up the first pres¬ 
ent," Tellas said. 

Many people believe that the second that children wake up on 
Christmas morning, they rush straight to the tree full of excitement. 
However, some students did not wake up to open presents under their 

tree Christmas morning. Instead, they traveled somewhere to celebrate 
with their families. 

"I traveled to Mexico, and I had a party with my family on Christmas," 
Denise Castaneda (9) said. 

Others stayed home for Christmas to take part in the festivities. 

“I woke up and opened some gifts, and then we went to church and 
went to my grandma’s house. I went to my dad’s house and opened up 
gifts there, too," Alexia Laurisch (10) said. 

Many students took the time to spend the holidays with their rela¬ 
tives, whether they were close to home or a few hours away. 

“I visited my great-grandma who lives in [Valparaiso]. We watched 
football, and, well, she’s 95, so she can’t really move around, so we 
had to help her get to different places,” Christian Sullivan (12) said. 

Students spent the holidays traveling or staying home. One common 
pastime of the holiday season, though, is spending time with friends 
and family.

Indiana calls state of emergency due to dangerous conditions 

Indiana may not have had a white Christmas this year, but it did experi¬ 
ence a post-Christmas shock. On the Sunday and Monday following New 
Years, Northwest Indiana was hit by a “Snowpocalypse." 

The state of Indiana called a state of emergency on Jan. 5, 6 and 7, ad¬ 
vising everyone to not drive on the roads. During this time, students had to 
either stay indoors and occupy themselves or face the subzero conditions. 

“I’ve never gone to a Blackhawks game before, and I've always wanted 
to go. I realized after so long that the snow might be an issue. We called 
[the box office] because our roads were closed that night and there was 
no way for us to get to the game. They told us, Tough luck, the game is 
still going on’,” John Hearne (12) said. 

Though some people had to miss out on fun activities, others had to 
pass up events a bit more serious. 

“Serbian Christmas was on Tuesday, Jan. 7. My family always buys the 

Christmas tree the weekend before, but because of the impact of the 
snow, this year we were not able to get a tree. My family also skipped 
church because the roads were too bad for us to drive there. There is 
another tradition where we have to walk around the church with candles 
and we could not do that because of the freezing temperatures,” Melanie 
Stepanovic (10) said. 

Some students decided to take action, regardless of the weather sever¬ 
ity. One student and his friends jumped at the opportunity to help out 
fellow community members in need. 

“On Wednesday when we had school off, me and my friends would 
drive around and look for tiny cars. Then we would use our bigger cars to 
help pull them out of ditches,” Brandon Evers (12) said.

Though everyone has not had Mr. Ron Fredrick,

are familiar with the uniqueness of his former 

Mr. Fredrick’s classroom was covered wall- 
to-wall with donated pictures of his students; 
however, after the move to the new building, the 
pictures remained. 

“That room is that room. That room is the old 
Lake Central. This room is new. [The pictures] 
needed to stay," Mr. Fredrick said. 

A going away party was held for his old room, 
where around 70 of his former students came to 
say their goodbyes. Despite the great loss many 
felt regarding the room, there are currently no 
plans to continue this tradition. 

“As far as recreating that in the new room, I’m 
not into sequels," Mr. Fredrick said.

Around 50 former swimmers and their families 
rallied together for one last meet in the old pool 
on Dec. 28. 2013. 

“It started by word of mouth...but it spread pretty 
quickly," Coach Todd Smolinski, Social Studies, 

The group had a much bigger crowd than ex¬ 
pected and put a twist on a typical swim meet. 

“It was an abbreviated meet [with] a little more 
fun to it. We had a generation relay, so a grad 
from the 80's, a grad from the 90’s, a grad from 
2000," Smolinski said. 


When Lake Central was first opened in 1966, Mrs. Sandy Wright was a 
freshman. As a current guidance counselor at LC, her career has seen 
the full transition of the high school. After four years of being a student 
and 40 years as a staff member, her life can be defined as being over¬ 
lapped with the history of LC. 

Sandy Wright, Guidance, came from a small middle school and 
ntered LC along with 1,100 other students. Because this was a big 
ransition in her life, she was a bit apprehensive about coming into the 

w school. 

“My sister was a senior when I was a freshman, and at that time, they 
lowed hazing of freshmen. We had these blue-green beanies that we 
lad to wear and, at that time, blue-green put together was not cool, you 
'eally stood out in the crowd,” Mrs. Wright said. 

Although she was put through initiation her freshman year, she really 
looked forward to having the opportunity to change classes throughout 
the school day. At the time, the school itself was built to accommodate 
1,500 students. 

“I remember that everyone was new to the building, so there was no 
one to really show you around. Even though I went to summer school 
prior to coming over, summer school was over at what is now, Kahler, 
so being over there was not useful for getting you used to the building," 
Mrs. Wright said. 

Though the school was not nearly as big as it is now. It was a brand 
new school that still confused many students, including Mrs. Wright. 

“The original building consisted of E-hall, part of V-hall, the fieldhouse, 
and cafeteria. When they first built the school, they didn’t accommodate 
for the growth that was there," Mrs. Wright said. 

Her graduating class had about 300 students as compared to over 800 
students this year. 

“I still think it [Lake Central] is an excellent place for student to get an 
education if they take advantage of the opportunities here. There are 
probably about five times as many courses available now than at that 
time," Mrs. Wright said. 

After going away to college, she decided to come back to LC as a sub¬ 
stitute teacher. In January of 1975, Mrs. Wright was hired as a physical 
education teacher. 

“It was nice to come back to the high school where you were because 


started to get interested 
‘in journalism my soph- 
more year. I thought 
‘this is something I can 
see for my future',” Mrs. 
Wright said.

you know the background, and I knew a majority of 
the staff because I had them as teachers when I was 
there,” Mrs. Wright said. 

She was excited to become a bigger part of the 
school that she previously attended. In 1979, she 
became a guidance counselor for the school. Also, 
she was the founder of Dollars for Scholars. 

“I always enjoyed working with children, and it was 
something I really truly enjoyed," Mrs. Wright said. 

Because she became a counselor, she got to see the 
school grow, change, and develop into what it is today. 

“I almost cried when the building started to come 
down because that is where I was, but, it needed to be 
done and the focus needed to be there,” Mrs. Wright 

Although Mrs. Wright had felt an emotional connec¬ 
tion to the old building, she was excited for the new 

“I think to give our students the opportunity to have 
much better facilities, that’s what it’s all about. That’s 
what education should be, it should provide the stuff 
that our students need to excel. I want to see kids 
have more opportunities," Mrs. Wright said. 

This year is Mrs. Wright’s last year as a staff member 
here and she will take with her many memories with 

“I had thought about retiring last year, but I wanted to 
stick around to see this," Mrs. Wright said.

Downpours of rain. Icy sleet. Bitter blizzards. Scorch¬ 
ing heat. Through all of these, construction workers on 
the new building have persevered. From the Olympic¬ 
sized pool to the 54th stairstep on the third floor, the 
development of the academic wing, pool and Main 
Street has finally come to its completion. 

From the groundbreaking day on Aug. 1,2012 to the 
first school day on Jan. 8, 2014 in the new academic 
wing, members involved have poured work and dedi¬ 
cation into the construction project. 

This entire project \s the result of the Tri-Town vote 
on Nov. 8, 2011. Students, staff and community 
members alike celebrated soon after when it was 
decided that the $130 million plan was to be put into 
action with 6,775 voting “yes" and 5,434 voting “no." 
This project would include the construction of a new

academic building, auditorium and updated sports 
facilities. All that was left was to wait. 

The ground was cleared away in preparation for 
the first phase: the academic wing. With it went the 
practice football field and track. From there, the five- 
year project sprung into action. The groundwork was 
laid, the walls were put up, and, suddenly, a three-story 
building rose before everyones’ eyes. 

By the second semester of the 2013-14 year, 
students were walking the newly-constructed halls 
and experiencing everything the school had to offer. 
However, this was only the beginning. 

Over the course of the next two years, a new audito¬ 
rium, band room, football field and track will take shape. 

It has been a long time coming, but there’s still a long 
way left to go.

“The clocks are all on back order. 

They will be here soon," Mr. Beck, 
Assistant Principal, said. 

There is a cell phone 
blocker in the new school 

“This is not true. I think that there is so 
much steel in the new building that it 
created an unintentional block in the 
new school. [The staff] couldn’t even 
get their walkie-talkies to work,” Mr. 
Beck said. 

There was a fire the day 
before school resumed 

“The sprinkler machine malfunctioned 
and [the alarm] went off. Since the 
sprinklers started, that made the fire 
alarm automatically go off," Mr. Beck 

There are cameras in the 
new classrooms 

“We are definitely not allowed to put 
cameras in the classrooms. There are 
only cameras in the gym, but there 
always has been cameras in there," Mr.

Upon the completion of the Freshman 
Center in 1994, Lake Central experienced 
its largest freshman class in the history of 

the school. 

“My oldest son came in [the Freshmen 
Center] and it was so exciting because 
they built it and it was supposed to be so 
modern and different with the commons 
and the display cases. It was an incredible 
leap for making the school better," Mrs. 
Brumm said.

grab items, such as refrigerators, baby simulators, and 
scrap metal pieces. A lot of old school belongings 
were taken by other schools in the area. The auction 
generated $50,287 for the high school. 


Q and A: Mr. Robin 

Tobias, Principal 

Are you excited for the new 

The old building has served its 
purpose and will go down quickly, we 

Are you upset about leav¬ 
ing the old school? 

No, no I'm very much involved in the 
new building process and I am look¬ 
ing forward to being a part of how 
our students will adapt to that and 
teachers too. 

Do you have any memories 
that will disappear with the 
old building? 

There is a lot of tradition and history 
that can be set back to that old pool or 
eventually when we get a new gym, we 
will get to accomplish more. It's impor¬ 
tant to remember where programs 
started and how they’ve came about. 
But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t 
focus on where we are going.

Welcome to the new and improved Lake Central 

i the doors, your eyes landing on the new 
Tnew ceiling, new... everything. Despite the 
he new school, despite the missing red, orange 
Jbckers, there is no denying it- this school holds the 

_Rosphere of the one you left just a short two weeks 

ago. This school is still Lake Central. 

The sound of slamming lockers and laughter ricochets against 
the walls. You catch snippets of information from the conversa¬ 
tions ofjthose you pass, but nothing substantial. The building 
might have changed, but the sound of high school certainly has 

There is more space in the hallways and you no longer have to 
fight your way through a crowd of students to arrive on time to 

your first hour, although, trudging up to the third floor first thing 
on a Monday morning does not really make things easier. 

Panting, you walk into your first hour class. Everything is 
larger, from the room itself to the desks to the chairs. Your 
teacher has trouble with the new SMART Board and you do 
your best not to laugh too loudly. 

You look out your classroom window, transfixed as the bull¬ 
dozer continues its assault on the old building. A funny sort of 
sadness clenches your chest at the sight of the mangled insides 
of the school you once roamed. That is your school that is slowly 
being reduced to nothing more than debris and rubble. You 
shake off the feeling with a jab at how easy it must be to destroy 
the school.

Located in the Academic Wing, six new flat screen televisions 
adorn the walls of the west “Wedge.” The televisions turned on 
for the first time Jan. 30 and displayed Lake Central's logo. “The 
sky’s the limit on what information we can put up there,” Mr. 
Robin Tobias, Principal, said. 


The days go by; you grow used to the new building. Your teachers master 
their SMART Boards, making classroom discussions more entertaining 
and visually pleasing. The larger classrooms allow more movement in your 
classes, giving your teachers more opportunities to try bolder and newer 

The bell rings. It is a sound that you more readily associate with a security 
buzzer at a clothing store than with a dismissal from your class, but you have 
grown too used to it to bother with a joke. 

You climb the stairs and find yourself out of breath once you reach the third 
level. You assumed you would grow used to the trek upstairs from the first 
level, but it still manages to leave you breathless. 

Fighting to control your breathing, you walk into your next class when 
there is a rumble beneath the floor and the image of another piece of the 

old school being knocked down flashes in your mind. Someone calls it an 
“earthquake” and you smirk, forgetting for a moment that your school is being 
torn apart. 

You overhear a swimmer gushing about the new pool, an auto student 
bragging about how the new auto shop is the largest in any high school in 
the state, a group of theater kids imagining the new auditorium and a football 
player wishing he could play on the new field when it is complete. 

That is when it hits you- this is only the beginning. The loss of the old build- 
ing, of the mismatched lockers, of the tape on the floor designating standing 
areas, paves the way for the new. Another rumble echoes beneath your feet 
and a small smile spreads across your face. This is the beginning of some¬ 
thing bigger and better, and you have a front row seat.

the new building, a new fully 
functioning auto shop, was 
built to replace the old one. 
Lake Central is the only high 
school in Indiana with a fully

Behind the blueprints: Tom Neff, principal architect tells the story 

In 2009. Schmidt Associates was introduced to Lake Central to do a 
facility assessment to rank the condition of the corporation’s buildings. They 
dentified LC as being in the worst condition. Two years later, the company 
was hired to start the design of the new, 850,000-square foot building. 

With a total budget of $130 million to work with, the company took on the 
cflHige of correcting the problems of narrow hallways, small classrooms, 
outdated technologies and a pool that was deteriorating at a rapid rate. To 
eijjfale the plan in a short time period, the firm used new methods of com¬ 
munication and followed an aggressive schedule. 

“The Indianapolis team generated 3-D computer models of the concepts 
and re-uploaded them so that the group in St. John could assess them and 
review them with the staff," Tom Neff, principal of Schmidt Associates, said. 

Schmidt Associates spent several hours of planning with the staff. The 

team has taken something more than a paycheck from the experience. 

“I know that I speak for the entire Schmidt team that this project has been 
a career highlight to have been part of such a remarkable experience, work¬ 
ing with such talented and inspiring individuals from Lake Central," Neff 

Although the perks of a new building are exciting, LC does not strive to 
be a school based on looks, but a place to challenge students for a suc¬ 
cessful life. 

“One of the goals presented to us by the administration and school board 
was to create an environment that spoke to the future of education, that 
looked beyond a typical high school experience, and captured a vision of a 
worldly exposure and expectation,” Neff said.

New classrooms, hallways, lockers, desks, tech¬ 
nology, bus locations and parking spaces are all part 
of the next chapter in the school's story. With innova¬ 
tive aspects of a new school comes confusion and it 
was up to students and faculty to turn the confusion 
into an adventure. 

- The school’s adventure began when winter break 
Was extended for another two days due to hazard- 
ous weather conditions. While most students stayed 
indoors to avoid the high winds, others scouted the 
new building to prepare for the transition. 

Students are not the only ones adjusting to the 
new wing. Teachers personalize their new class¬ 
rooms as they prepare for the new semester. Mr. 

Tom Clark, Social Studies, already has artifacts and 
posters covering from one end of his classroom to 
the other, ready for students. 

With all of the confusion of the big switch, stu¬ 
dents, teachers, and faculty members had to work 
together as a cohesive team. Mr. Ed Beck, assistant 
principal, and Mr. Sean Begley, Freshman Center 
principal, directed students to their buses on the 
first week back from the extended break. Another 
way students accustomed to the transition was by 
implementing “buddy systems” to help each other 
find classes and buses. Other students used the 
maps that were provided by principals before the 

With the old parking ^hno longer 
usable by students, the newly extlnd-H 
ed one only addecfto the disorder. The 
first day of the second semester, traffic 
backed up aJo4| 77th Street and US 
41. The excessive traffic caufcd many I 
buses to be late, making students tardy 
to their fir^ hour classes. Students had 
trouble finding their appropriate parking 
spot due to the build-up of snow covering 
the spot numbers. Som^tuc^^?hacl to 
endure the long, frigid walk from Zig-E’s , 
the new West Wing. 

Students now have to adapt to the winding 
maze of hallways and stairwells. As predict¬ 
ed, the bigger hallways cut back on student 
traffic. The new system offers more routes 
for students and teachers alike to get to their 
destination. Where the North Wing lacked 
in efficiency the West Wing makes up for it. 
Through combined efforts, time, and a little risk, 
the history of Lake Central is ready to turn over 
the page and begin the next chapter of its future

Cheerleaders Conquer Competition 

On Jan. 18 and 19, the varsity cheerlead¬ 
ers competed at Nationals in Indianapolis and 
returned to St. John as champions. 

“We had a good chance of winning. It wasn't a 
very large competition for us; we've done bigger 
competitions locally in Illinois. It’s a heavily at¬ 
tended All Star competition, but as far as school 
teams, there wasn't a lot of [them] there, so I 
thought we had a really good chance, “ Cheer 
coach Mrs. Joan Loden, Mathematics, said. 

To make it to Nationals and have a good chance, 
like the Varsity girls, they had to rely on their train¬ 
ing and routine. 

“We’ve had our routine since summer, and 
we've made some changes for Nationals. Some 
of our stunts had to be taken up a level, tumbling 
and so forth, our dance everything we do is pretty 
much the same so other than elevating our stunts 
a bit. It's the same routine we’ve competed with all 
fall," Mrs. Loden said. 

Considering it was the varsity team's third time 
in a row winning, they were very excited. Receiv¬ 
ing leather jackets, holding the trophy, and taking 
all the pictures was just as rewarding as the years 

On Jan. 4, the Centralettes performed at the Chi¬ 
cago Bulls pregame. After a traffic-filled bus ride, the 
Centralettes were ready to show what they had been 
working on. 

“Besides our music messing up, I thought it was cool 
to be dancing at the United Center. It’s a big stadium," 
Michelle Gentz (12) said. 

The dancers learned a new routine the weekend prior 
to the performance. Dancing at such an event was new 
in the history of Centralettes. Because of this oppor¬ 
tunity, the team practiced more over winter break than 

“I didn't like having four-hour practices every day, but 
in the end, it was worth it because we looked good out 
on the floor, and it prepared us for competitions," Kelsie 
Verhoeve (10) said. 

During the pregame, JV and varsity both performed 
their hip-hop routine. The performances ended with a 
newly-learned routine, which was a mix of pom and hip- 
hop. Both JV and varsity danced together at the end. 
After dancing, some Centralettes were told that they 
were seen on television. 



Northwest Indiana 
freezes over, forces 
students indoors 


I This winter, dangerous weather conditions were faced across the country. 
■Northwest Indiana, in particular, was not the most fortunate. 

On Jan. 5 the “polar vortex" came in full swing, causing many school can¬ 
cellations and endless delays. Even the governor of Indiana, Mike Pence, 
declared a state of emergency. 

“The main factor considered for cancellation is whether or not we believe 
our buses, staff and student drivers can safely navigate the trip to school. 
We divide up the district and drive the roads, consult with IN DOT [Indiana 
Department of Transportation] reports on the internet and check in with 
local police departments to hear their opinion since they have squad cars 
driving around the towns," Dr. Larry Veracco, Superintendent, said. 

The temperatures reached record-breaking lows, forcing many students to 
wear several layers of clothing to protect from frostbite. 

“I shoveled my driveway in -15 degree weather," Julia Zlotkowski (10) 

Even though weather was cold, it did not stop students from embracing 
the snow. From throwing boiling water out the window to see it vaporize 
to sledding down Icoal hills, students bundled up to make the best of this 
winter weather. 

“Me and [Kyle Grunewald (12)] got snowed-in together, so we played 

hide-and-seek in the snow and went into the hot tub," Anthony Pupillo (12) 

Many students found alternative ways to have fun, even if they did not en¬ 
joy the snow. They spent their days drinking hot chocolate, watching movies 
on Netflix or sitting by the window and watching the snowfall. 

“I stayed in and watched movies, like Avatar,’ and read the first two books 
of the ‘Divergent’ series," Gelen Robinson (1 2) said. 

Some challenges were also faced by Dr. Veracco as he had to make the 
big decisions on when to cancel school, have a two-hour delay or a normal 
school day. As snow days increase, so does the number of days that need 
to be made up at the end of the year. 

“Generally, we prefer to call for a two-hour delay if we honestly believe the 
two hours will result in better driving conditions but when conditions are 
really poor we go straight to a cancellation. We will also make the decision 
the night before if we know we cannot get our parking lots ready or if the 
forecast indicates overwhelming chances of dangerously low temperatures 
or if side roads will clearly not be ready for safe travel," Dr. Veracco said.

To help say goodbye to the old pool, Mr. Robin Tobias, Prin¬ 
cipal, and Mr. Ed Beck, Assistant Principal, hosted an Alumni 
swim meet in December. 

“The event was an opportunity to reunite LC swimming 
and diving alumni for a final farewell to the old pool and to 
recognize the championship program established by Mr. [Jim] 
Tonkovich, [PE.]” Mr. Tobias said. 

Once school started back up on Jan. 7, the swimmers were 
introduced to a new and improved pool that holds 750,000 
gallons of water, as much as a standard Olympic-sized pool. 
The staff seemed quite impressed by it as well. 

“The new pool looks better after the construction. They did 
a good job with it. It restates pride Lake Central has for the 
swim team. I think [the new pool] will inspire and reinvigo¬ 
rate [the swimmers’] desire to train,” Coach Todd Smolinski, 
Social Studies, said. 

Smolinski’s statement was proven correct once some swim¬ 
mers gave their feedback. 

“We want to improve as a team, and we think that the pool 
can help us do that,” Sarah Diviney (10) said. 

Aside from the pool, swimmers showed their gratitude for 
the many new aspects of the aquatic center. All of the equip¬ 
ment was replaced, and the new pool gave them a cleaner 
enviroment to practice in. 

“We all really like the new lockers. They aren't so rusty and 
have more room for all of our stuff," Kyle Massa (10) said. 

After saying a final farewell to the old pool and being 
introduced to the new aquatic center, students and faculty all 
share mixed feelings on the positive and negative aspects of 
the experience. 

“The new pool is fantastic. It's 50 meters, and that is a huge 
opportunity in itself, but you can’t replace [the old pool]. This 
is where all of us started. We all started right here in this 
pool when we were five or six years old. So I’m really jealous 
for all of the new kids coming in, for them to be able to swim 
in that pool, but it doesn’t compete with this [the old pool],” 
Lesley Payonk (‘09) said.

“There's three parts for getting a 
pilot license. First. I had to go to 
Ground School at Griffith-Mer- 
rillville airport. [Getting my pilot * 
license] required a lot of flight 
time, and it was very time-con¬ 
suming because I would have 
to take time out of my summer. 

I didn't have any free time. The 
total process took 11 months, 
starting in January and ending in 
November. I had to pass three 
exams: a written test, an oral 
test and a flying test. I want to 
be a helicopter pilot eventually, 
so I’m doing all of this through 
the Navy Pensacola in Florida. I 
did this early because all naval aviators start out with getting their private pilot license, 
and this way I will have more of a chance to pick what I want to fly," Christopher Rath 
(12) said. Photo provided by: Christopher Rath 


“I moved to Ohio on Dec. 26 of last year. I moved be¬ 
cause my dad got a job transfer. Now, I 
live with close family friends. I grew up 
with them, so it’s not weird. My parents 
were okay with this idea after all of 
the talking about whether I’d come 
back to graduate or not. In Ohio, 
it was okay. It was a good area 
and I had friends, but it just wasn’t 
the same. The brand-new building here 
really confused me; it’s like I transferred 
to two new schools in a year. I went to 
Ohio and had to learn that whole school 
and it was just as big as Lake Central 
in terms of population. Then, I came 
back and I was confused all over again. 

I asked friends to help me out, but 
they were all confused too. It feels like 
home here. Everything is the same as it 
was before I moved. I’m just glad I can graduate here 
because that was my biggest thing since I’ve been 
in the Lake Central Corporation since kindergarten,"

N-Teens students have taken on the responsibility to organize almost 
everything for the 2014 Winter Formal, from small decorations to the theme 

“I think we were really good about starting decorations, general decisions 
and the theme early. I think that sometimes students are hesitant to voice 
their opinions at meetings, but we generally get good ideas shared. I’m 
excited to see it all come together and the excitement from the students," 
Mrs. Kelsey Becich, English, said. 

Normally scheduled club meetings were every other Tuesday, although 
with Winter Formal preparation, N-Teens began adding on an extra meeting 
on Thursdays from November to January. 

“It took from the Sunday to Wednesday of the week before formal to make 
the trees and pour the concrete on it. A spray-paint booth was made to 
finish the log pieces that will be placed on the tables. We are also placing 
blacklights in the room to make the trees glow," Woodworth said. 

With all of the ideas being brought together, Winter Formal is hoped to be 
successful and show off all of the hard work that was put into it. 

“I think the preparation for Winter Formal is going well. But I think we will 
get it done and Formal will be awesome," Gloria Maxwell (11) said.

Students share parking location due to limited number of spots 

Because of the construction, student parking 
spots were very limited compared to last year. 

The school held a lottery to see which seniors 
would receive spots. 

u We are down 189 spots compared to last year, 
so we issued 349 parking passes to [senior] 
students," Mr. Marty Freeman, Assistant Principal, 

Many students had the dilemma of not receiv¬ 
ing a place to park after the winners of the lottery 
were chosen. There were not many solutions to 
this problem that students encountered. 

w At first, I did not get a spot, so I complained to 
the office to see if there was any way I would be 
able to, but there was no leftover spots to give 
anyone," Daniella Dombovic (12) said. 

The office received many complaints about park¬ 
ing the first week of school. 

11 We are trying to park kids any place we can. 

We issued spots in the central office, back of the 
school, faculty spots and across the fence,” Mr. 


Unfortunately, this still left many people without 
a place to park. As a result, carpooling became a 
common choice for students. 

“I carpool with [Aaron Ludwig (11)], my sister 
[Cailee Wilkinson (9)], and Joseph Van Vuren (10) 
because we live down the street from each other,” 
Aidan Wilkinson (12) said. 

With gasoline prices fluctuating daily, deciding 
to carpool was a solution to both parking and cost 

“Bryan [Studniarz (11)], Tommy [Balicki (12)] and 
I carpool to school. We usually switch off driving 
every other day because it saves us each gas 
money," Joseph Starcevich 
(12) said. 

With a portion of the current parking spaces 
l- being set aside for construction reasons, admin¬ 
istrators and students alike bear with the chaos in 
order to reach their ultimate goal - having a safe, 
i fully-funtional parking lot.

students escape the 
polar vortex’s clutch 

Every year, girls don their fanciest dresses and boys get fitted for their 
tuxes for Winter Formal. Though the theme changes yearly, the amount of 
time and energy that N-teens put into it never wavers. 

, “The committee and I sat down and thought about lots of different 
ideas. I feel like [the theme “Frozen in Time"] turned out good. As long 
as everyone else had fun, I’m happy with how it turned out," Kassie 
Woodworth (11) said. 

Being stressed for formal is a common thing. In preparation for nights 
like this, students spend weeks getting groups of friends together, 

. making reservations and arranging after-parties. School dances are 
something that most girls have been looking forward to since they were 
in pigtails. 

“Going to formal, I was kind of nervous because I am only a sophomore 
and I didn't really know what to think of it. I thought the whole dance 
would be seniors doing their own thing and everybody else just sitting 
around, but I was wrong. Everyone was having so much fun the whole 

time. It was just like a huge party," Jacqlene Beemsterboer (10) said. 

Every year a formal queen and king are announced toward the end of 
the dance. John Gbur (12) and Brooke Lambert (12) were voted this 
year’s king and queen. 

“[I didn’t really expect to win formal king] because [Alexander Mantel 
(12)] and [Alec Olund (12)] are both my friends, and when it comes 
down to it, being nominated is an honor," Gbur said. 

For some girls, being crowned formal queen is a highly-coveted honor. 

“I didn’t know that I was going to get nominated. I don’t really know 
how that process works. I was surprised when I got nominated, so I was 
kind of up in the air. [When I got announced,] it was cool," Lambert said. 

Formal is a night where students hope to live up to the hype they see in 
movies and magazines, with glittery shoes and elaborate hairstyles. 

“[Winter Formal] was bittersweet. The dances to me are all the same, 
so the fact that it was my senior year made it special," Lambert said.

Members of the Lake Central Theater Company put Winter 
Formal on the back burner and headed down to Indianapolis 
for their annual State competition on Jan. 24. 

“State was amazing. It’s always really cool to spend an 
entire weekend with super-friendly people who have similar 
interests to you," Rachel Dobias (12) said. 

This year’s events brought new faces to the stage. 

“[Cathryn Cearing (11)] and I did an individual event of dual 
acting, which was really strange for both of us beause we’re 
technicians, not actors," Dobias said. 

The individual event gave the girls a very different outlook 
on performing. 

“We performed the piece at State after a few weeks of 
rehearsal, and although we didn’t win an award of any kind, it 
was a really cool experience for us to come out from behind 
the curtains and learn something new," Dobias said. 

“I wanted to [be assigned a 
college roommate at random] 
because I love change and 
new experiences. I wanted to 
start fresh at IU and meet all 
new people and make new 
friendships rather than hang¬ 
ing onto old high school ties.

after the storm of switching pools comes the calm of new beginnings 

^ Tl 

it is supposed to be a time of recognition and reflection. The 
Isenior girls of the swim team had a brief exposure to the new pool. How¬ 
ever, the memories made in there and the past four years will wade on for 

years to come. 

Since they were freshmen, Tracilyn Muszalski (1 2) and Holly Spears 
(1 2) had grown acclimated to the waters of the old Lake Central pool. 
[Though it has been said that change brings opportunity, humans are often 

nwilling to change. 

like the old pool better. There’s just so many more memories for me in 
there, and it’s just kind of being demolished. I do feel like we did need a 
new pool; it was definitely something that we needed," Muszalski said. 

This year's swimmers and divers had the privilege of being the first team 
to use the brand new, state-of-the-art facility. 

“I thought [the new pool] was really nice. I thought it was a replica of 
Munster's pool, but ours is bigger. I’m really glad that it was finished for my 
senior year. I just wanted to be in the new pool before I left," Spears said. 
The meet on Jan. 23 against Munster brought a whirlpool of emotions 

for those in attendance. Many goodbyes were exchanged—goodbyes to 
teammates and to the place the girls had spent much of their high school 

“I had to stop myself from crying because [the Munster meet] was the 
last time I’ll ever swim in this pool and with this team. I can’t think of a 
word to describe it," Spears said. 

The meet against Munster marked the seniors’ last home races in the 
new pool. The team could not be sad for long; Sectionals was their next 

“As a team, I think we all did really good times which makes us really 
excited for Sectionals in a few weeks," Brianna Shoemaker (12) said. 

Although they have said their farewells, the possibility of Spears and 
Muszalski crossing paths in the future is very promising. Spears has com¬ 
mitted to swimming at Indiana University, while Muszalski will attend Ball 
State University on a swimming scholarship.

Winter Formal is an event many high 
school students look forward to, and on the 
weekend of Jan. 24, the International Thes- 
bian Society students sacrificed their big 
weekend to attend the State Conference. 
The club’s performance of “Drum Taps" 
returned as a Chapter Select show 
for the region. As a Chapter Select 
show, it was a State winner and 
will also be performed in June at the Inter¬ 
national Conference held in Nebraska. 

“I enjoyed [the State Conference] 
because I was with everyone I love. I was 
happy and doing great activities the whole 
weekend. The shows were better than what 
they were last year. There was a lot of 
talented people performing this year,"

With a few seconds left on the clock, Tye 
Wilburn (12) missed his freethrow shot, but with 
a swift move Tyler Wideman (12) stole the ball 
back, tying the game 36-36. 

“Valpo has always been a tough team for us 
to play, but our fans were behind us the whole 
game. Winning by one point felt a little disap¬ 
pointing because we didnt play to our full poten¬

After all the madness, the Indians were able to

students take interest in different art classes 

dost students take art classes to fulfill graduation requirements; 
however, some students are captivated by art and want to learn 

“I’ve always been surrounded by art, and it was just kind of like a 
natural choice for me to take it because I’ve never been strong with 
academic classes or anything," Kelly Massei (12) said. 

Currently Massei is in Mrs. Maureen Yaeger’s, Art, AP 2D Art 
class and is working on her portfolio. She has taken art throughout 
high school and pians to continue studying it in the future. 

I plan on going to Herron Art School at IUPUI,” Massei said. 

While 2D art is very popular, many students decide to take 3D 
art, as well. Two-dimensional art deals with both drawing and 
painting on flat surfaces, while three-dimensional art links height 
and depth to create more sculptural pieces. 

“Because I’ve been in 2D for so long I wanted to try something 
different,” Kassie Woodworth (11) said. 

The 3D Art classes put an emphasis on glass projects. This quar¬ 
ter the students are making beads, which can be used to make 
necklaces and pendants. 

"[Mr. Paul Volk, Art] encourages us to get stuff from Hobby 
Lobby and make our own and take them to concerts and sell 
them," Woodworth said. 

While this semester students focus on making beads, last semes¬ 
ter students focused on fusing glass. 

“I smashed up all the glass then fused [the pieces] together to 
make a big clock," Charles Lasky (12) said. 

Not only do students learn about art in class, but they also get to 
take the projects home as a memory of their high school art experi¬ 

“My favorite project was the glass project, and I chose to make 
glass birds, “ Kayla Mathews (10) said. 

The class offers many new learning experiences for students will¬ 
ing to go beyond their academic classes. 

“I would recommend the class for anyone who doesn't like sitting 
still and drawing all the time. 3D Art is cool because you get to get 
up and build stuff," Lasky said.

On Sunday, Feb. 9, the Centralettes hosted a kids camp at M2 dance center for 
kids from kindergarten to eighth grade. At the camp Centralettes taught the girls a 
dance and tried to help educate the upcoming generation of dancers. 

“I like the fact that we get to teach some of the little girls what we do and they 
get to dance with us on Saturday [the day of the competition],” Daniella Dombovic 
(12) said. 

There were two dances that the Centralettes taught to the girls. The girls K-3 
grade danced to “Hey Mickey" by Toni Basil and the girls 4-6 grade danced to “A 
Little Party Never Killed Nobody” by Fergie. 

“I really enjoy [teaching the camp.] It makes me happy to see younger kids get¬ 
ting interested in dance at such an early age. Just seeing all of the little girls look 
up to us was really cool," Genevieve Blessing (1 2) said.

students are given the 
opportunity to learn in new 
ways through science classes 

e Central offers a large pool of classes to spark students’ 

I interests, especially in the science field. 

“[Zoology] is really fun. It’s really interesting on what new things 
you can learn about different animals,” Taylor Jackson (10) said. 

Zoology classes participate in multiple labs, giving them a lot of 
hands-on learning experiences. 

“We dissect sharks and a bird, and a frog and a fetal pig. [Dis¬ 
secting the shark] was really smelly but it was really cool and you 
learned a lot about them," Breanna Zeller (10) said. 

1 Zoology is only one of many classes offered. Another popular 
choice among students is Forensic Science, in which students 
learn how to apply science to building cases in the criminal justice 

“I’m in Forensics [as well,] and it’s really interesting. We learn 
about serial killers and stuff," Zeller said. 

Students are not the only ones getting the great opportunities 
from these not-so-ordinary classes. 

“I do feel that LC students are lucky that we offer so many choices 
in the Science department. Other schools offer the basic classes 
and then students have to wait until college to dive further into their 
field of science. I also feel students who do not plan on studying 
science are able to experience these learning opportunity that is 
not offered at other schools,” Mrs. Rachael Thomas, Science, said. 

These elective science classes have hands-on activities for stu¬ 
dents to experience learning in different ways. 

“I believe that hands-on activities create interest in the subject 
and longer retention of the material,” Mrs. Thomas said. 

These innovative ways of teaching tend to spark students’ interest 
in the material. 

“I believe that the instructor guidance should be visual, interesting 
and appealing to all students and should be supplemented by the 
hands-on activities," Mrs. Thomas said.

Students layer multiple math classes to get ahead for the future 


College-bound students always keep their eyes wide 
for opportunities to get ahead in school. Samantha 
walski (12) has taken these classroom challenges to a 


are really expensive in college, so to be able to 

in a year up is really nice," Kowalski said. 

During her freshman and sophomore years, Kowalski 
it upon herself to double up on math classes to get a 

start on college classes, 
did Algebra II the same time I did Geometry, and I took 
the same time I took Pre-Calc, and I mostly did it 
this year I'm ahead," Kowalski said, 
are many benefits to doing this, but it does not 
without hard work. 

[Taking two math classes is] really homework intensive, 
prepare, you just have to pay attention in class more 
se you’re not gonna have as much outside time, so 
really have to work at it in class. You have to dedicate a 
of homework tjme to it,” Kowalski said. 

Dugh the homework is tough, doubling up on math 
3S can have its benefits in a high school and even a 


ats 1 

college schedule 

“[Because of accelerated classes]. I'll go into college 
with like 42 credit hours which is like a sophomore. So 
it just puts you ahead on scheduling, you get priority 
scheduling, [so] there’s a lot of benefits to taking an 
accelerated schedule,” Kowalski said. 

Even if getting college credit is not a priority, taking two 
math classes can relieve stress and open up space for 
other classes. Ryan Leatherman (9) took advantage of this 
sort of scheduling. 

“It’s really worth it because I was in between taking 
another math class or study hall. [Doubling up on math] 
gives me room to do more things as a senior," Leatherman 

When looking for ways to get ahead, consider doubling 
up on math classes to get ahead just like Kowalski and 

“I think it's a really good choice if you have the time," 
Kowalski said.

Bankers Life Fieldhouse was packed 
with enthusiastic fans and hard-working 
athletes on Friday, Feb. 21 and Saturday, 
Feb. 22. Members of the varsity wrestling 
team were competing in the 76th Annual 
IHSAA Wrestling State Finals. With only 
two wrestlers, the Indians finished ninth as 
a team with 34 total points. 

The team moved beyond the post-sea- 
son tournaments into the State competition 
with two qualifiers, Jacob Sebahar (12) at 
the 145-pound weight class and Gelen 
Robinson (12) at the 220-pound weight 

After passing the preliminary matches on 
Friday, Sebahar beat Greenwood’s Bailey 
Schober in his first match. In his second 
match, he fell to Perry Meridian’s Cody 
LeCount but was still able claim a third 
place title after wrestling another match. 
Sebahar finished with a record of 38-11. 

“My coaches told me when they were 
in that position what they were thinking. 
[They told me], ‘Just know that it [is] your 
last match and could possibly be the last 
match you ever wrestle in your life, so leave 
it all out on the mat.’ That’s what I did," 
Sebahar said. 

After two pins in his first two matches, 
Robinson advanced to the Semifinals 
where he faced Cardinal Ritter’s Dylan 
Faulkenberg. After defeating Faulkenberg, 
Robinson moved on to the State Champi¬ 
onship match, where he wrestled Kokomo’s 
Fletcher Miller and won in a 1 7-4 decision. 
Robinson finished first in the state with 

an undefeated record of 52-0, giving him 
back-to-back championships. 

“I’m glad that I got to carry the Lake Cen¬ 
tral Indian name all the way down here to 
State and be successful and come out on 
top two years in a row,” Robinson said. 

Along with the coaches and two State 
qualifiers, many Indian fans were also pres¬ 
ent at the tournament. 

“I’ve been [at the State tournament] for 
the past four years [as a fan], but every 
year it is just as crazy. It was really awe¬ 
some to see Gelen win again, and then to 
see Sebahar get third. That was awesome 
because he was kind of more of an under¬ 
dog at first," Jacob Kleimola (10) said. 

The Indians finished their season with 12 
Regional qualifiers, eight Semi-State quali¬ 
fiers, and two State qualifiers. Although 
they completed the season with plenty of 
success, the plans are bigger and better 
for next year. 

“Next season [our goals] would be to 
improve upon each and everything that we 
fell a little short on. I would like to definitely 
improve our dual meet record. I would like 
to have all 14 of our [varsity] wrestlers 
qualify out of the Sectional. We should 
have a few Regional champs to say the 
least. We should have a couple of Semi- 
State champs, and we should have three 
or four kids that are down at the State 
tournament next year,” Coach Mr. Ryan Alb

^^Members of th^Tak^Central Theater company went into “The Some- “At first it was kin 

/hat True Tale of Robin Hood” believing it would be the last show in the 
luditorium. However, as they prepared their goodbyes, the directors were 
ipproached by Mr. Robin Tobias. Principal. 

“[Mr. Robin Tobias] told me, according to the construction schedule, 
things were going to be delayed, so if we could do the musical in Februrary 
*ve would have the auditorium, but if we still wanted to do it in March we 
would have to find someplace else to go. I thought it would be easier to use 
the facility we had,” Mrs. Pam Neth, English, said. 

Paralleling the last days of the theater company’s seniors with the old 
auditorium, “Zombie Prom" was about a group of seniors’ last days in high 
school together. 

“It feels weird to know that I will never be allowed to go back on that 
stage or laugh backstage. It’s a weird feeling to see all of our memories be 
locked up and crushed," Lauren Bourget (12) said. 

While some were saying goodbye, Micah Ellis (11) was saying hello. In 
August, Ellis transferred to Lake Central from the Chicago High School for 
the Arts. Transferring schools posed many challenges for her.

“Zombie Prom" before 
closing doors forever 

“At first it was kind of daunting because I did come from another school, 
but it became a really amazing experience for me, figuring out what it was 
like to be in a high school where people aren’t doing theater all day every 
day,” Ellis said. 

Ellis, however, was not the only one encountering new experiences. After 
taking a break from the stage for a few years, and even playing the clarinet 
in the pit for last year's musical, Nicholas Kiepura (11) decided to return to 
the stage. 

“At first it was scary, but then it was really awesome because I knew a 
bunch of the people. I wanted to try it freshman and sophmore year, but I 
was to scared to do it," Kiepura said. 

When the auditorium goes down with the rest of the school, it will be 
taking many fond memories with it, from the 1970s until now. 

“My favorite part of the show was being able to be on stage with my two 
best friends and being able to feel the heart onstage," Mia Gjeldum (12)

doys basketball, cheerleading, gymnastics and athletic trainers honored 
[their seniors on the Lake Central basketball court on Thursday, Feb. 13. 

Before the game officially started, seniors linked arms with their family

classmen and fellow teammates took the time to appreciate the seniors 
and all the hard work they have put forth throughout their high school 
athletic careers. 

“It was pretty sad because it’s the last home game and everything. I was 
sad, too, because my dad passed away two years ago. He probably would 
be very proud of me and everything. I felt like he would have enjoyed that. 

It was also very exciting because we have a really good team, and I had six 

other people to enjoy that day with," Christopher Tuskan (12) said. 

Achievements and heartfelt messages from family members were an¬ 
nounced as the seniors walked across the court. 

“It was really upsetting knowing that this is my last home game because 
those are the most fun to cheer at. It was sad knowing that my cheer ca¬ 
reer is almost over because I’m going to miss it so much next year. It just 
seems like this whole year went by really fast, and it doesn’t feel like I’m a 
senior,” Susan Anderson (12) said.

Most people would find the idea of dissecting 
a sheep's heart hard to stomach, but students 
in Mrs. Roberta Harnish’s, Science, 7th hour 
Anatomy and Physiology class were not sheepish 
about taking on the operation. 

“The point of the sheep dissection, the heart, 
was to look at the structure in terms of how it 
was similar to the atria, the ventricles, the valves, 
your chordae tendineae. That’s basically what we 
were looking at as we were dissecting," LynNora 
Trosper (11) said. 

The hands-on link between the class topics 
and real life had some mixed reactions. 

“At first, I really thought the lab was gross, 
but the moment you make your first actual cut 
into whatever you are dissecting, it gets easier," 
Trosper said.

We had a really good end of the season, but I didn’t expect to be as 
food as we were and for us to win two individual events at Sectionals 
as a really big boost for our team,” Joshua Barajas (11) said. 

The season started in the middle of September and ended at the be- 
inning of March. Practicing about six days a week, the boys had both 
morning and after school practices, which brought the team closer. 

“It was good because we worked as a team and we worked hard and 
we did better than we expected,” Michael DeYoung (12) said. 

Overall, the team ended up receiving third place at Sectionals, the 
Highland Invite and DAC. These accomplishments were not achieved 
alone, as the team motivated each other to work harder. 

“We were really close as a team and we brought the whole team 

down to State. Our coach believed that to succeed we had to become 
close as a team quickly at the end of the season,” Barajas said. 

This year the team received the chance to send a few individuals to 
State, which took place on Feb. 28 and March 1. 

“This was my third year going down [to State] but it was my first year 
individually, so I mean it was a really good learning experience for next 
season,” Barajas said. 

The road to State provided the boys with great experience that not all 
swimmers can say they had. 

“It’s a lot more competitive when you get down to State because ev¬ 
erybody there has got to be fast to get there, and then the parents are 
shouting and there’s tons of people there, and the Natatorium at IU PUI 
is just great; it’s a great pool,” Jamiere Wilson (11) said.

nity faced the record low tempuratures and 
stepped into the sun. There was an end to 
the seemingly endless winter, and the slippery 
walks school and huddled treks into the park¬ 
ing lot brought about a sense of school com¬ 
munity. The rough winter was smoothing into 
spring, and everyone rejoiced. 

Whether the school comes together in times 
of triumph or tragedy, the sense of community 


reigns strong. After the deaths of two students, vAM/ 

the period of mourning was smoothed over Ap\ 

with mutual understanding and support. Life A/v^A 

moved on and the student body did too. They 
carry fond memories with them as the year WXWWBTT 

progresses toward summer. 

Just by glancing out a third-story window, 
students can see the old building that they had 
left behind just months earlier. However, as 
cranes and construction crews began taking 
it apart, the once familiar school became less 
and less recognizable and eventually into just 
piles of rubble and earth. 

It was starting to set in: the old school was on - 

its way out, and the new school was here to -- 

stay. It is all starting to smooth over. ___ -IB-

Bryan Tunis (10) and Aaron McDonald (10) make family ties 


Bryan Tunis (10) and Aaron Mcdon- 
ald (10) first met at daycare in 2001, 
but neither of them knew just how close 
they would become later in life. As the 
years passed, their lives overlapped more 
and more as they evolved from friends to 
teammates to brothers. 

“It didn’t take long [for us to become friends.] 
We met when we were four,” McDonald said. 
Christina Gonzalez, mother of Bryan Tunis, 
and Jamie McDonald, father of Aaron McDonald, 
met each other when dropping their four-year-old 
kids off at daycare. Soon after the parents met, they 
began dating. When their sons were five, the families 
began living together. 

“It took about nine years for my dad to pop the ques¬ 
tion,” McDonald said. 

Mcdonald's father didn’t tell them about the proposal, 
so when they came home from a friend’s house it was a big 

“We had no idea. We just came home one day and heard the 
news," McDonald said. 

Throughout the years, the brothers have played the same 
sports together. The two played football, baseball and even 
wrestled on the same team. 

We played baseball together for a few years. [Our dad] coached 

for one year but he couldn’t handle it. He got stressed out over me 
and my brother fighting. [We] fought competition-wise, like who was 
better," McDonald said. 

Tunis and McDonald went to the same elementary school, 
middle school and now high school. They have helped each 
other with homework and have made many of the samefriends. 

"[Bryan, my friends, and I] all get along pretty well. It’s fun, 
and we always have a good time,” McDonald said. 

Although they get along well with friends, sometimes they 
tend to have arguments with each other. 

“When we fight it’s usually about the stupidest things, .• •M 

like who gets to watch what they want on TV," Tunis 

Despite the arguments the brothers have, they still 
connect with each other and remain close 
with each other in many ways. 

Although the two are both friends and step¬ 
brothers they agree that if their parents had not 
gotten together they probably would not be as 
close as they are now. Through all the teams, 
the r classes, the fights, and the wedding, the 
Bppbrothers’ lives continue to overlap as 
time goes by.

staff and students experience destruction with front-row seats 

The foundation of Lake Central High School was laid in 1967. Now, in 
March 2014, those bricks are coming down. 

The old school once stood undisturbed of construction workers fash¬ 
ioned in yellow hard hats, but students now have front-row seats to all of 
the action that showcase the demolition of history. 

“It is really cool that we have a really neat view of everything going on. 
People come in here and before they come and sit down [in class] they’ll 
go look out the window," Mrs. Jennifer Fandl, Math, said. 

Mrs. Fandl teaches her students from the third floor of the new 
academic wing. Her window allows her and her students to view the 
demolition as it happens, but sight is not the only sense affected by the 
wrecking process. 

“It is definitely noisy at times [like] when the students are taking a quiz 
or a test. You see a lot of the students look at the window and wonder 
what that noise is coming from. Everyone tends to think something just 
fell or something important happened so they all tend to stand up and 
want to see what just happened," Mrs. Fandl said. 

Curious students flock to the windows of classrooms located on the 
second and third floor on the north side of the building in order to catch 
a glance of the bulldozing progress. 

“Even principals have come up here to look out the window," Mrs. 
Teresa Zentz, Social Studies, said. 

Like the teachers, students also have acclimated to the construction dis¬ 
turbances, usually having more complaints about the permanent school 
noises rather than those from the temporary construction. 

“[The construction] really isn’t loud at all. Even the hand-dryers are 
louder than the construction,” Roger Jachna (12) said. 

Right now the students can view the demolition, but soon the view will 
be of the construction of other academic structures. 

“It is kind of exciting to see everything that’s happening on a day by 
day basis and I think it will be exciting to watch as they start building it 
up too,” Mrs. Fandl said.

As spring hesitantly approaches, the girls track team prepares for their 
next season. They begin training as soon as their season ends. Mr. Ron 
Fredrick, English, schedules practice throughout the summer months to 
keep the girls that do not participate in another sport in shape. 

Working out year-round helps the girls improve on individual weakness- 
s. Once winter comes, more girls begin to condition. When February 
oils around, Mr. Fredrick hosts tryouts for the team. Each girl chooses to 
print or run a longer distance. The tryouts last six out of seven days. At 
he end of the week, Mr. Fredrick and Mrs. Amanda Allen-Breski, Math, 
split the girls up into certain events based off their times. Practices begin 
every day for several weeks before the girls are able to run pre-season 

This year, the girls had three pre-season meets. The girls were able to 
steal the victory at the dual meet against Morton and Munster. Also, they 
took a win against Kankakee Valley, but had a tough time placing at their 
meet up in Kenosha, Wis. The Indians last pre-seaon meet was located 
at Carthage College. Because the track is 200 meters, it helped the 
runners. With less of a curve, the girls were able to drop several seconds 


from their overall time. These times helped set the girls’ goals for the rest 
of the season. 

M l want to drop 14 seconds in the mile and 20 seconds in the two mile 
by the middle of the season,” Sarah Hunsley (9) said. Hunsley set these 
goals shortly after breaking her personal record. Although numerous girls 
did well, the team had a rough time placing. Out of 37 teams, the Indians 
were able to place 6th. 

“Although our competition wasn't difficult to beat at home meets, we 
realized we had to work harder after our meet up in Wisconsin," Maritza 
Castaneda (11) said. 

The team is greatly motivated by their coaches, Mr. Fredrick and Mrs. 
Allen-Breski. Each year they set goals and usually are able to achieve 
them. A permanent goal every year is to win Sectionals and Regionals. 
Upon the result from Regionals, the team hopes to send numerous girls 
to State. This year there are great expectations for many girls to medal at

Advanc ed Drama reads to Kolling Elementary students for a national event 

On March 3, Advanced Drama students took the day to participate in encouraging the students to make a story come to life. Even if the charac-

lational Read Across America day by reading to the children at Kolling 
Jementary School and performing skits centered around the “Miss Nel- 
on" children’s book series by Harry Allard. 

During their class time, skits and reading activities were organized. The 
tudents divided themselves into groups, each narrating one of the three 
ooks they had brought to share with the kindergarten students. 

“We were trying to promote reading and the fact that everybody’s imagi¬ 
nations are different, so what we did was we asked the kids to use their 
imaginations. We brought these stories to life as we had a narrator read 
the stories," Brittany Busby (10) said. 

The students took on this event for more reasons besides just promoting 

“Our main thing was to have them read and have fun, but also put their 
own insight into this by imagining what the characters look like. We were 

encouraging the students to make a story < 
ter is the same in each story, they can still make it different and put their 
own twist on it,” Caroline Dienes (12) said. 

The hard work and dedication that went into the skits and reading was 
rewarding for the Advanced Drama students as well. 

“My favorite part was probably going back to Kolling and seeing old 
teachers that I used to be around, and watching the kids’ reactions as 
they were looking up at us," Kendra Williams (11) said. 

Overall, the children gave positive feedback to the student skits. 

“The kids really enjoyed it, they laughed at all jokes that were meant to 
be funny. They also sent a thank you card; they wrote and drew pictures of 
what their favorite story was,” Dienes said.

A new group, American Sign Language, 
was added to the club roster in March. 

The ASL teaches students a new way to 
communicate nonverbally. While this group 
is not official yet, it is still in the works of 
getting recommended as a club. 

“I thought it would be a good idea to start 
the high school with a new ASL group next 
year. If there are people who join then again 
we will try for an ASL club officially. Since 
the school board has not approved the club, 
we can not call it a club yet," Mrs. Sarah 
Mayer, Kahler, said. 

Students had the opportunity of be¬ 
ing taught on how to hold a conversation 
with a deaf or hard-of-hearing person. 

They learned the different techniques and 
shortcuts on how to say different everyday 
slang words.

boys basketball competes for state title, falling short by four points 

On March 29. the Varsity boys basketball team traveled to Bankers Life 
Fieldhouse in Indianapolis for their State Championship game. They lost by 
a mere four points after climbing back from a 15-point deficit in the first half, 
ending the game with the close score of 63-59. 

“Before the game, I wasn’t nervous at all. Me, Joe [Bannister] and Ethan 
[Darter] were watching Spongebob in the hotel room before we left. I was 
calm. I was excited and ready to go out and play in front of all those people,” 
Robert Ryan (12) said. 

The atmosphere was intense as the opening buzzer sounded, and each 
player prepared both mentally and physically for the pinnacle of their season 
against the Arsenal Tech Titans. The Titans proved to be a worthy opponent 
as they took control of the first half with a lead of 15 points making the score 

“During halftime, Coach was telling us to play harder and take care of 
the ball, and once we started doing that, we were playing a lot better,” Tyler 
Wideman (12) said. 

The Indians seemed out-of-sync throughout the entire first half. If they 
wanted a chance to win, something was going to need to change quickly. 

“At halftime, I brought the kids together and [told them] we're going to play 

to the buzzer and [we're] not going to give up because we’ve worked all year 
and worked hard so we’re just going to keep playing,” Joseph Bannister (11) 

Picking up in the second half, the Titans cooled down and missed some 
shots, giving the Indians one last chance to win it all. A sudden feeling of 
hope kept the team pushing forward. Although the game ended in a devasta¬ 
tion, the team has their eyes set on making it just as far next year. 

“We lost a lot of seniors so I’m just going to have to step up and play a 
bigger role next year and try to lead the team, just try to get everybody on the 
same page in the same sync, and maybe we can get back there next year," 
Bannister said. 

The day after the game, a group of local basketball players and fans rode 
in the back of pickup trucks escorted by police, waving signs supporting the 
team. Though the championship was lost, the fans continued to show pride ir 
the Tribe. 

“As a whole, it was fun. It was a good experience - everyone being together 
in Indianapolis. To have everyone come out there and all be together, I felt like 
we were all still in the LC crowd section, ” Danielle Kanosky (12) said.

Adeline Perez makes childhood hobby into a career 

Art has always been a huge 
part of Adeline Perez’s (12) life. 
She has been involved in art for 
as long as she can remember and 
is now eager to turn her passion 
into a career. 

“I always looked forward to color¬ 
ing during school and my mom always 
bought me sketchbooks [when I was 
younger],” Perez said. 

As the years went on, Perez took a 
great interest in drawing female faces. 
She works with a variety of mediums— 
paint, pencils, etc. to shape her work. 

M l love working with charcoal and chalk 
pastels. They allow me to create very realistic 
images,” Perez said. 

As Perez got older she began to overlap her 
love of creating faces into the world of makeup 

“In sixth grade, my mom took me to a makeup 
store. In eighth grade, I started looking through 
magazines and becoming more interested in it,” 
Perez said. 

As the school comes to a close, seniors are 
making decisions about their futures, the colleges 

they want to attend and the career path they want 
to pursue. 

“I want to do something more than work in a 
salon,” Perez said. 

Perez concluded that her love of drawing faces 
was a sign that makeup artistry, instead of art 
school, was right for her. Her love for makeup is 
an extension of her love for art because it still 
incorporates her favorite creative elements. 

Recently, Perez decided to attend Makeup 
First in Chicago next year, one of the best 
makeup artistry schools in the country. 

“I'm really excited because it is in a big 
city but still close to home,” Perez said. 

Perez’s family is her greatest support 

“When I told [my family] I wanted to 
go into makeup artistry, they said, ‘Just ** i 

because you aren’t going to a four- * 

year school, don’t feel like you aren’t |^|#4

Students and staff come together to support St. Baldrick’s 


( The gymnasium flooded with people on Mar. 17 during 3rd hour matrix 
is students and faculty lined up to either shave their heads for the St. 
aldrick’s foundation or watch and support those who did. St. Baldrick's 
is an organization that encourages participants to raise money in order to 
fund research for finding a cure to cancer. 

“I felt really good about myself [for raising money and shaving my head] 
and seeing all the support made me really happy," Alayna Prisby (11) 

Prisby was among the 30 students who participated in the event along 
with four staff members. Overall, the students and staff were able to 
raise over $10,000 for St. Baldrick’s fundraiser. 

44 We still have money coming in, but we are over $10,000. We are at 
$10,100," Mrs. Angela Ohlenkamp, Math, said. Mrs. Ohlenkamp has 
been involved with St. Baldrick’s since it came to LC in 2007. 

“[It started with] a student in my SRT back in 2006. His father was 
one of the owners of The Quest and it was one of the first places in this 
whole area to do it and he told me about it right before it happened, 
so I went to The Quest and watched it. The following year we got it 
approved at our high school. It was just a cool event, lots of excitement, 
lots of money raised, just a fun atmosphere to be in," Mrs. Ohlenkamp

LC had been unable to host a St. Baldrick's event in the past two 
school years and struggled to get the event ready to be hosted on time 
this year. 

“With it being in a new school and the fact that we are still moving, we 
didn't get approved for the event until four weeks prior to where most 
years we knew three months in advanced. We had to do a lot of fund¬ 
raising and getting ‘shavees’ very quickly in order to have a full event," 
Mrs. Ohlenkamp said. 

To Mrs. Ohlenkamp’s surprise, the volunteers and donations came 
flowing in very quickly which made setting up and hosting the event 
much easier. 

Many students participate in St. Baldrick's not just to be involved with 
the excitement, but for a sentimental reason. 

“A little over a year ago my aunt was diagnosed with brain cancer. 
Seeing my family and everything they went through made me want to 
shave my head," Prisby said. 

Not only is St. Baldrick’s a fun way to get involved, it also raises cancer 
awareness and gives support to the cause.

It’s harder to run because we don't have spikes on, 
the turns are sharp and we don’t have the greatest 
indoor track. In the indoor meet I run the 4x200, 
the 50. and the 200. 

Indoor Track 

You have to really want to do it and it’s not always 
easy. It’s a lot harder than outdoor. It is harder 
because the atmosphere makes it harder to breathe, 
you have to pace yourself different, and the curvers 
are tighter.

students sacrifice their Saturdays to prepare for spring AP tests 

I To help plan ahead for their futures, some students choose to join AP 
classes to acquire skills that could be helpful in college and receive man¬ 
datory college credits while still in high school. 

“The main reason [I take AP classes] is because you can get college 
credit and pass out of the required classes that you usually have to take 
during freshman year of college," Brandon Kozel (1 2) said. 

In addition to getting prepared for college level classes and testing out 
of required courses, AP classes encourage students to learn at an ac¬ 
celerated pace and with a more individual way. 

“There is more leniency in the class of how you can approach learning 
and the material is a lot different of that you would learn normally other¬ 
wise," Kozel said. 

The grant from the National Math and Science Initiative provides Lake 
Central with the opportunity to offer students in AP English, Math, and 
Science courses the ability participate in AP-TIP (Advanced Placement 
Training and Initiative Program) conferences. 

“The conference helps you summarize and review all the stuff that is 
otherwise crammed into one spot,” Kozel said. 

Having this extra boost gives AP students the opportunity to get extra 
help in order to earn college credit from the AP tests in May. 

“I’m learning what [college students are] learning right now [while I’m] in 
high school," Robert Hemmerling (12) said. 

Students are able to recognize their ability through AP classes by push¬ 
ing themselves to understand and apply the material and by attending the 
Saturday conferences as often as possible. By putting in the extra time 
and work, students have learned that dedication can open up a world of 

“AP classes have taught me that whatever I set my mind to doing I can

JV Indians put up a fight but fall 

jloomy day brought even more dull attitudes to the JV softball 
slayers after a loss to Lowell High School on Monday, April 7. Expe¬ 
riencing their first loss of the season at home was saddening, but the 
girls promised to push themselves harder for their next opponents. 

“Having a home loss isn’t the best, but we’re going to try our hard¬ 
est to get them next time. We need to stay focused and cheer each 
other on," Crystal Guzman (9) said. 

Teams usually perform different techniques to get fired up and 
prepare themselves to play their hardest. 

“We warm up then we do our pre-game. To get pumped up, we do 
our Indians cheer," Natalye Johnston (9) said. 

Unfortunately, the Indians fell behind when it came to batting. How¬ 
ever, the girls are aware of the mistakes they made and hope to make 
better hits in upcoming games. 

“I wasn’t expecting them to hit as much as they did. We needed to 
stay focused and be more involved in the game. I’m trying to improve 
on my hitting. I was injured, so I hadn’t seen live pitching in a while, 

short against Lowell Devils 

and my timing was off. I’m looking forward to a more intense game 
altogether," Savannah Childress (10) said. 

Even with good hits from the opponents, the Indians maintained 
their strength when it came to fielding. They did the best that they 
could at the defensive end of the game. 

“We struggled a little bit at the plate, but we had some good defen¬ 
sive plays too. We’re pretty sound defensively, but we need to work 
on getting more aggressive at the plate,’’ Guzman said. 

Enhancing their skills on the field will bring them closer to their goal 
of success for this season, and even more seasons to come. 

“One of our goals for the season has to be to be on varsity next 
year," Johnson said. 

Encouragement, dedication and love for the game are reflected 
throughout this season. Even with an upsetting loss, the Indians 
pulled through and are doing all they can to come out on top.

community paticipates in 
Tri Kappa Tie Dye Dash 

\pril 1 2, students and the community participated in a 5 kilometer 
|run/walk sponsored by Zeta Psi Chapter of Tri Kappa, for the first ever 
Tie Dyed Dash. Zeta Psi Chapter Tri Kappa is an organization through 
iDyer, Schererville and St. John which raises money and donates it to other 

"The organization is a collection of women in a sorority in which you 
need an invitation to join. We have [around] 40 members. I came up with 
[this idea of a colorful run so we thought we could try that. Omni teamed 
up with us, which was awesome because they brought people in," Mrs. 
Lori Brumm, Principals' Secretary, said. 

Tri Kappa has held community events before, but they wanted to draw a 
different crowd. A community of various ages participated in this run/walk. 

u We have held 5Ks before, but we wanted to have a family-oriented run 
where they could have strollers and wagons," Brumm said. 

Runners of all ages joined the run/walk that morning. The money col¬ 

lected from the event will be donated to local organizations involving 
education, charity and culture. 

“I just like running and Tri Kappa is a really great organization. It was a 
double plus because I was staying healthy and helping the community at 
the same time," Samantha Kowalski (12) said. 

Families, students and teachers from all around the community were 
interested in running in the event because it was a fun run. At certain 
locations throughout the course, the participants were drenched in bright 
colored powder. 

“I came because I enjoy running and the fact that there was color. I 
knew that my kids would enjoy it," Mrs. Angela Ohlenkamp, Math, said. 

Many of the event's participants were happy with the event’s outcome. 

“I think it went well. The weather was amazing. I was happy with the turn 
out, but I hope next year it grows even larger," Brumm said.

students hang hearts on lockers to spread love 

^pril 22, many students’ first concern was studying for the next day’s ACT 
Itest. They sharpened their pencils, brushed up on vocab words and prepared 
[themselves for the test that would help shape their futures. 

However, on the way to their designated test-taking rooms, students could not 
help but stop in the hallway to gaze at the lockers and the decorations that adorned 
|them. A paper heart with the handwritten message, “You are loved,” was taped to 
ery locker in the school. 

I didn’t want anybody else to feel like they were all alone. We did have those two 
cent suicides. It was really upsetting to me,” Sabrina Wiater (10) said. 

After the recent deaths of two students, Wiater decided to take matters into her 
own hands, and was the driving force behind this movement. But before she could 
make her dream happen, she had a lot of work to do. 

“I went to [Mr. Robin Tobias, Principal,] first and I told him about this. I walked out 
of his office and I was kind of overwhelmed. I felt like I just bit off more than I could 
chew,” Wiater said. 

After consent from the administration, Wiater spent time planning how she would 
accomplish this task. She had a committee of friends and students who assisted 

her and stayed after school with her on April 22 to hang the handwritten signs on 
every locker in the school. 

“It was a lot of work, but if I had helped at least one person, it would’ve all been 
worth it. My hands hurt really bad, but I don’t regret it whatsoever," Wiater said. 

The students were moved by her heartfelt mission and were brought together 
during the tragic time. 

“It was a good way to let everyone know that people do care out there and that 
you’re not alone," Hannah Hestermann (9) said. 

During the tragic time, the students were brought together because of Wieter's 
wish for a movement of love. 

“I’m so glad I had the help of my friends [and] I was so glad I had the support 
of the school. I’m glad that I got to do it. The point of this was that I didn't want 
anybody to feel alone,” Wiater said. 

The signs remained on the lockers, untouched, even weeks after the ACT, re¬ 
minding students daily that they are loved.

Mr. Sean Begley, Freshman Center Principal, 
gives advice on how to do well on the ACTs 

DO show up on time, prepared with a pencil, an ID [and]

DON’T leave [preparation] until the last minute. Use all 
the resources that [Lake Central has] for the PSAT and the 
ACT to help students get prepared for those tests. 

DO Eat a good breakfast, get a good night's sleep. Give 
your best effort. 

DON’T go back to the test before and start bubbling in 
the test. That gets you in trouble.

Baseball team manages their time between sports and school 



When baseball season begins, Ryan Polito (12), 
Jack Kuehner (11), Ryan Ruthrauff (10) and the 
other players on the team try to balance baseball, 
school and a social life. 

“[The hardest part is] definitely managing all the 
sports practices and then doing your homework 
and being on top of your grades,” Kuehner said. 

Before baseball tryouts even begin there is pre¬ 
season conditioning, but what makes this condi¬ 
tioning so unusual is the time they have to wake up 
in the morning. Workouts start at 4 a.m. for these 
student athletes. 

“[My schedule is] baseball, school, working out, 
another sport like basketball or soccer and then 
homework. Workouts start at [4:40 a.m.] so I get 
up at [4:00 a.m.]," Polito said. 

The baseball players struggle to keep up with 
their grades and maintain a social life while balanc¬ 
ing their athletic commitments. Some athletes as 
play in other sports. Ruthrauff has a season of 
basketball to finish up before he can officially start 

conditioning with the baseball team. 

“Not going to the workouts because of basket¬ 
ball did not affect my relationship at all. I play travel 
with most of the kids on the team and I hang out 
outside of school with them, so it makes it stron¬ 
ger, and I guess I'll be a little behind but it won’t 
take me long to get back into the swing of things,” 
Ruthrauff said. 

Because of this strict schedule, a good night’s 
sleep is hard to come by, but lack of sleep does 
not manage to slow the players down. Polito man¬ 
ages to keep his grades high enough to be on the 
A-honor roll and a have job at Jak’s Warehouse by 
taking naps during breaks in his busy schedule. 

“Sometimes I get lucky, and I sleep a normal 
amount and then probably about five hours max. 
Naps are so important,” Polito said. 

The teams’ hard work ethic continues to push 
the athletes closer to success into the season.

girls tennis players share words of encouragement “family" style 


A word of encouragement can take one’s confidence level from the bot¬ 
tom to the top in just a matter of seconds. This year’s girls tennis team has 
found a new way to help motivate each other on and off the court. 

The girls are split up into “families” made up of three or four girls. There 
iis a “mom,” an “older sister," a “middle sister" and a “younger sister.” The 
lirls then write motivational cards to their “families" before each match. 

“It definitely boosts your confidence and makes you feel like you can do 
mything. One of the girls [Anna Wachowski (9)] sometimes she'll write 
hem for everybody, like the whole team. She writes really sweet ones, and 
it makes you think somebody actually cares about how you do and it’s not 
just another game. It’s just really uplifting. If you’re nervous, you’re totally 
not after you read the little encouragement cards. I think it's just a really 
good idea. We didn’t do it last year. My freshman year, I’ve been on the 
team since then, and we haven’t done anything like that. It brings us closer 
and we’re like a little family. I like it,” Elena Eickleberry (11) said. 

The cards are given to each other before each game. The girls will put 
the date and who they are playing for those who keep them as keepsakes. 

“I think they're really cute. It gives you a good attitude before you step 
on the court. It lifts you up if you’re having a down day," Kristina Tinsley 
(9) said. 

The girls have found other ways to become closer and make their sea¬ 
son more memorable. 

“I think we do a lot more team bonding than just the cards. A couple 
girls go out to Panera. We’ve gone out to breakfast at the beginning of the 
season. We did Easter baskets and filled them up with candy. A couple 
of the girls made shirts. [When you get] closer as a team, it makes it a lot 
easier going to and from each match. You get to know the girls off the 
court as well,” Tinsley said. 

This season brought the girls together in a way never done before. Be¬ 
ing on this team goes further than just being teammates; it’s about becom¬ 
ing a family.

students take time out of class to give back to the community 


down to the gym throughout the day on Apr. 25 to 
help give back to the community by participating in the biannual blood 
rive run by the American Red Cross. 

“I love giving blood. This year was my third time. I used to be so nervous 
uring it, but now I’m just excited,” Danielle Kanosky (12) said. 

It is important for students to take various precautions before donating 
lood so that it goes as smoothly as possible. 

It really is important to eat a healthy breakfast before with water be- 
ause my second time [donating,] I passed out. This time I chugged two 
water bottles before and it was smooth sailing,” Kanosky said. 

Many students are looking for a way to lend a hand in the community 
and help out the people around them, but aren’t sure how to go about it. 
The blood drive is somewhere for students to start. 

“I honestly wanted to give blood because it feels really good afterwards 
because you feel like you've done something to help someone else and it 
was definitely worth the wait," Brianna Shoemaker (12) 

Many students are afraid of needles, but they find ways to cope in order 
to get through the experience. 

“To get my mind off of the needle, I usually talk to the nurses ask them 
why they started doing this," Kanosky said. 

Students faced these fears, however, because they saw a bigger picture 
and knew how many people they would help. 

“My philosophy is [that] ‘giving blood is something almost everyone can 
do, and it is a very selfless act,’" Kanosky said. 

Many students have participated in past blood drives held here at Lake 

“I did [the blood drive] in the fall. The last time I did it, I was more scared 
because I had never donated blood before, but this time I was a lot more 
excited and just wanted to do it," Shoemaker said.

On April 21, the varsity boys baseball team took 
on the Crown Point Bulldogs. Due to heavy rains, 
the game was called and postponed to resume 
April 24. With Crown Point's early start, the game 
resumed in the first inning with a score of 4-0. 

“[The rainout] probably helped because it took 
away their momentum. It gave us a little time to 
regroup and kind of feed off of it and gain some 
momentum," Alexander Nisle (11) said. 

When the Indians had their first at-bat of the 
game, they cut the lead and evened the score 
back to 4-4 thanks to home runs from Alec Olund 
(12) and John Gbur (12). 

“There was something sluggish about our team

came out better," Christian Sullivan (12) said.

DO Look at the key papers that teachers give 
you throughout the year. 

DON’T Study immediately before the test 
because the only things that will stick are the 
things you just saw. 

DO Dress comfortably [for the AP test] because 
you will be sitting for a long time. 

DON’T Bring your phone [to the AP test] 
because if it goes off, your test is terminated. It's 
better to just leave it in your locker.

German IV students introduce the 
language to elementary students 

)n May 1, German IV students traveled to the elementary and middle 
■schools, teaching those students the basic components of the German 

“We went to elementary schools and middle schools and we taught 
Ithem how to say their names, colors, how to count and words about 
Jtheir families. Also, a lot about the German culture,” Emma Rose (12) 


This year, there are only eleven students in German IV and they are 
trying to revitalize their program through the elementary and middle 
school students. 

“We went to promote the German language to younger students 
because they're trying to phase it out. They’re telling younger students 
that they can't take German. [The school] is trying to rebuild the Ger¬ 
man program so that’s why we [went,]” Kristi Schultz (1 2) said. 

This trip was unique for the students because it gave them the expier- 
ence of being the teacher. 

“We sometimes did one person to a class, but it was hard because it 
would be one for a class of 30 kids,” Schultz said. 

This was the first year German students have done this, and because 
it went so well, plans for next year are in mind. 

“[Mrs. Leslie Iwema, Foreign Language] wants to get approval of tak¬ 
ing her German III students too, so we can reach more kids next year,” 
Schultz said. 

The elementary and middle school students were excited about learn¬ 
ing about this foreign language. 

“My favorite part was how they were all really receptive to us. They 
weren’t disrespectful and they really wanted to try and learn. There are 
usually kids who were always annoyed, but even those kids were in to 
it, too,” Rose said. 

This lesson has wrapped up the seniors’ last year of high school Ger¬ 
man with a memorable experience. 

“This was the most rewarding aspect of doing German IV,” Schultz

_ ^ upperclass students make Prom their own 

I When thinking about what to do after Prom, the typical student would 
^Bthink to go out to dinner and hang out somewhere afterwards, and the 
■next day go to Six Flags Great America or destinations out of town, but 
wthis year some students had a different take on their Prom experience. 

1 “[We went] to a walk for the Voices Against Brain Cancer, and what we 
Idid was we walked to raise money to find a cure for brain cancer. All the 
girls in my group got up [the day after prom] and we all went to Chicago, 
then we spent the day [there],” Erin Todd (11) said. 

Todd’s group got up at 6 a.m. on Sunday morning and went to Chicago 
to particpate in the walk that started at 8 a.m. 

“It’s kind of bittersweet because obviously you wanna be there and sup¬ 
port the cause, but at the same time we had to wake up so early," Todd 

As some find something different to do after Prom, others may think of a 
more creative way to make their Prom experience one to remember. 

“I saw other people record concerts and get a first-person perspective 

on big social events, and I just thought it would be really cool to have my 
Go Pro strapped on my head after the dance or afterwards when we went 
to Turkey Run to get a first-person perspective of the whole trip and show 
people what it’s like to go through your senior prom," David Kelly (1 2) 

When creating the Go Pro video, Kelly kept in mind all of the aspects of 
Prom, not just the dance portion. 

“Hopefully [the video] takes off because Go Pro does a video of the 
week so hopefully I could get something up there. That’s what my goal is," 
Kelly said. 

Other groups of Prom-goers had a more relaxed end to their Prom night. 

“Well the 10 of us just pretty much chilled [at the lake house] watch¬ 
ing movies and it was pretty relaxing, we all just had a great time there,” 
Rebecca Cordel (12) said.

Freshmen step up to star in 
student-directed plays 


tvery year, the Lake Central Theater Company puts on productions 
Ranging from plays to musicals where auditions are open to all four 
grades. However, the last production of the year, a collection of “fresh- 
nen shows,” gives the underclassmen their chance to shine. 

On April 30, four of these freshman shows were performed: “Superhero 
Support Group,” “4 a.m.," “The First Date," and “Cave Dream.” These 
-hour productions allowed freshmen to audition without worry of not 
eing casted in favor of older thespians. 

“We can try out [for the other high school plays] but there are so many 
great actors and actresses [in the company.] We aren’t used to doing 
productions yet though so I didn’t feel I was being isolated. It was better 
for me,” Stephanie O’Drobinak (9) said. 

These shows, reserved exclusively for the freshmen, gave them the abil¬ 
ity to prosper and develop as actors. The only upperclassmen involved in 
the productions were the student directors and technicians, so they were 
able to get the full experience of being in a production without all the 

“A lot of times, upperclassmen get bigger parts [in the high school 

plays] because they are usually more talented. [Plays for only freshmen] 
help because we’re just starting out,” Adam Gustas (9) said. 

For many of the actors involved, the freshmen shows are their first 
experiences onstage, but even seasoned actors like Gustas, who has 
been involved in other shows at Lake Central, dealt with cases of the 

“I was really nervous because the rehearsal prior to the performance 
was really awful, so going onstage, I was nervous. Yet I had a feeling it 
would go well because I figured it could only get better compared to the 
rehearsal we just had," Gustas said. 

The freshmen shows were also a learning opportunity to upperclass¬ 
men, who, instead of just acting and doing technical work, directed their 
own shows and worked with the new talent coming into the company. 

“The freshmen were a lot more talented than I expected this year. They 
were all really good; I was kind of blown away. Usually the freshmen 
aren't that good because it’s their first show," Emma Rose (12) said.

Best Buddies Boogie at Banquet 

The annual Best Buddies banquet took place 
on Friday, May 9, in the cafeteria. Students 
gathered to celebrate the end of the year. 

“We have done it for the last three to four 
years. It really brings everyone together and 
allows for us to have one more good meet¬ 
ing before next year," Noah Sarkey (12), vice 
president, said. 

Instead of having a DJ, the club did some¬ 
thing a little different with the music this year. 

“We got a jukebox, and that was really a lot 
of fun," Jacob Taylor (11), future president of 
Best Buddies, said. 

This was the last formal Best Buddies meet¬ 
ing of the school year.

For example, Senior Banquet does not require formal wear or dates. The

“It was fun. The music was good, a lot better than Prom, music-wise. The 
awards were good and there were a lot of cookies that I ate," Andrew

Seniors were able to forget for a moment that they will be parting ways 
with their friends, and instead, were able to enjoy the time they had left as 
a class. Even the people that have not seen each other since freshman 
year or people who did not like each other came together to celebrate their 
last event. 

“[Senior Banquet] was the greatest dance all year. I loved it. [I loved] 
the lights. The music was better than Prom and everyone was having fun. 
There was no drama for one night," Gomez said. 

Though only 266 students purchased tickets, many people expressed 
that they had no regrets for attending.

DO Study everything until you know

one section, that could be the difference 
between a 5 and a 4. 

DON’T Try to re-learn materials the 
night before because you may end up hav¬

DO Have a plan on what to study for. 

il DON’T Give yourself a set time to 

study. Study periodically throughout the year.

people who scored in the 
top five in the region for the 
French test. [Mrs. Nancy Tilka,

to be invited, you had to receive 
a formal letter inviting our parents 
and families for a reception dinner. 
If you scored about average, you 
had a very good chance of placing 
in the top five in the district; but it 
depends on how well you do and 
who takes it. I received a medal 
for having the third highest score 
in the district for the fourth

Girls Track races to title 

On Tuesday, May 20, the Lake Central Girls 
Track team traveled out to Lowell to participate 
in the IHSAA Sectional meet. With the goals 
to get out of sectionals and make it to region¬ 
al, the girls had to place in the top four. Once 
the meet started, the events began to roll on 
through. After the 200 meter final, lightning was 
spotted and the meet was delayed until the next 
day, Wednesday, May 21. The next meet the 
girls traveled back out to Lowell. With only four 
events left to score, the Indians waited to hear 
the winner of the IHSAA Sectional meet. After 
all events were finished, the scores revealed the 
Lake Central Indians won the meet continuing 
their record to 23 straight sectional wins.

choir hosts “Rewind" concert 
at Lake Hills Amphitheater 

->n Saturday May 1 7, the choir students and their families met at the Lake 
Hills Amphitheatre in St. John, for the last concert of the year. The throwback 
Itheme. titled “Rewind," was nothing short of appropriate, as each group sang 
(favorites they have performed before. 

“I sang a Queen medley and the senior girls sang tribute songs together. 

he Concert Choir, which would be described as the top choir, sang a Lion 
<ing mash up too," Mia Gjeldum (1 2) said. 

This concert was quite different compared to ones in the past. Due to the 
demolition of the old building including the choir’s auditorium, choir adminis¬ 
trators had to find a new venue that would be suitable to hold all attendees. 
Working with outdoor acoustics, free admission and attendees bringing their 
own seating, these choir students were praying for the best. 

“It was different than performing in the auditorium because we had no 
time to practice. There was no day we could just go outside. I felt like it was 


harder to hear us since it was such a huge venue," Lauren Bourget (12) said. 

As far as the season goes, the choir kids kept the tradition alive and re¬ 
ceived all gold ratings at each and every one of their competitions this year. 

“It was neat [getting all gold ratings] because I knew that someday I would 
be in that position and have to beat that. I was in one of the individual en¬ 
sembles that got gold, so I feel that I need to keep up and not mess up for 
the next few years to come,” Megan Barry (10) said. 

With every ending comes a new beginning. The past memories made will 
never be forgotten, but seniors look forward to the future with high hopes. 

“It was bittersweet as my last concert, but I'm excited to move on and go to 
college. The people I met and the friends I have made in choir is what I am 
going to miss most," Bourget said.

Sophomore sisters sacrifice snow day make-ups for summer vacation 

Due to the school cancellations that 
took place this winter, the extended 
calendar has conflicted with some 
students’ summer vacation plans. Sisters 
Megan Gabe (10) and Taylor Duffy (10) 
were forced to choose between school and 

They plan to leave for vacation to Cedar 
Point on Friday, May 30, which means that the 
two will have to miss the last student day of the 
school year. 

“It’s a family vacation. We’ve done it for the last 
two years, and it’s my sister’s [Brandy Gabe (12)] 
last year with us because she is a senior. My sister will 
graduate on Thursday, the day before we leave, so it 
works out nicely,” Gabe said. 

Both Gabe and Duffy are also active members of Lake 
Central’s marching band, so the two sacrifice a majority of 
their summer to musical activities. 

“We have a mandatory two weeks of band camp at the end 
of July, so we decided [to go on vacation] early so we wouldn’t 
have to miss those days,” Duffy said. 

With set reservations at a popular vacation spot, rescheduling 
might not be in tune for busy families like Megan and Taylor’s. 
“We’re going to Cedar Point for a week and the Indiana Dunes 
for two weeks right after that, so there’s really no room to change our 

schedules," Gabe said. 

In addition to being involved in band, the two have also taken on 
challenging classes. However, missing crucial testing days is a risk 
they are willing to take. 

“Depending on what test we’ll have to miss, it could be ben¬ 
eficial to our grades or detrimental because we might have to 
miss some of the study sessions. I’m [planning on staying] 
after school with some of my teachers for my harder classes, 
like Chemistry and [AP U.S. History]. I usually do the study 
guides and try to make some of my own. For finals, I usually 
spend three to four hours studying, depending if I have 
band," Duffy said. 

Studying can be demanding, but a positive and deter¬ 
mined mindset can make the difference. 

“I think [studying] is important because it really 
dictates where you go in life. Especially if I’m going 
to go to Cedar Point, I don’t want to have to worry 
about failing my finals," Duffy said. 

Despite the conflicts and added stress, the 
issue will be pushed to their rear-view mirror as 
they travel to Cedar Point. 

“It stinks that we had snow days, but 
they’re not going to change our summer," 

Gabe said.

I The annual National Honors Society induction ceremony was held on 
May 21 in the gym, where 139 students were welcomed into a club of 
volunteer work and national merit. 

NHS officers for the 2014-2015 school year were also announced: 
Ryan Wiebe (11), President, Nicholas Kiepura (11), Vice President, Jen¬ 
nifer Mohamed (11), Treasurer and Alayna Wallace (11), Secretary. 

“I feel honored, definitely. I’m glad I did it. I’m ready to dedicate a lot of 
my time to doing this— I’m happy,” Wiebe said. 

Wiebe aspires to improve the club during his time as President. 

“I really want to get NHS more involved by doing more service for the 
community. [I hope to] get more people in NHS, to do more good for the 
organization, [and] make NHS a better group than it was when I got in,” 

Wiebe said. 

Allison Beck (11) is one of many newly-inducted NHS members who is 
enthusiastic about being able to do some good out there. 

“I’m excited about being in NHS. I wanted to be in it since middle school. 
Right now I’m coaching a 10U softball team in Dyer, so I hope to continue 
that for NHS next year,” Beck said. 

After a year of providing volunteer work for the town, members often exit 
the club with a refined character and a sense of accomplishment. 

“It felt good helping out the community and being able to give back. It 
made me feel like a better person," Jillian Poplon (12) said.

Commencement speeches focus on the electronic age 

This generation is so frequently told that technology is going to have 
a negative effect on social skills and ability to be more academically 
motivated than the previous generation. The class of 2014, however, 
begs to differ. 

“It is being said that we will be the first generation to accomplish less 
than our parents before us, and that we lack true social skills thanks to 
the advancement of technology. I wholeheartedly disagree," Samantha 
Kowalski (1 2) said in her commencement address to the class of 2014. 
“We are a generation that realizes that there are more important things 
in life than money and power. We are a generation that understands 
happiness is the key to success. We are a generation that operates 
at speeds unheard of before us thanks to those pesky computers 
and smart phones. Yes, we may be young, naive, and compulsive, but 
weren’t our parents before us and their parents before them? We are 
young. We will make mistakes, but we will also bring about progress 
and innovation that the world has never seen," Kowalski said. 

Among the 11 eligible Summa Cum Laude graduates, Rachel DiNino 
(12) and Kowalski were selected to give commencement speeches 
about looking back and looking forward, respectively. DiNino empha¬ 

sized holding onto these memories while going into the future. 

“Remember that those memories will always be inscribed on the 
metaphorical pages of a diary. Whether your time at Lake Central was 
a sentence, a paragraph, a page, or twenty pages, you will always carry 
the diary and the memories with you. Now, as we prepare to go our 
separate ways, never forget the support that exists for you right here in 
this room from your classmates, family, and friends," DiNino said. 

In the age of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media 
outlets, technology will not only allow students to look at their past, but 
also to look to the future and make a difference. 

“I believe [technology] will not only allow us to stay connected even 
over great distances, but it will also allow us to give life to our ideas and 
dreams. Technology gives us all of the tools we need at our fingertips, 
and now all we need to do is provide innovation. I don’t think many of 
us can accurately imagine the feats our generation will accomplish with 
technology at our side," Kowalski said.

The end of the year brought a major 
sense of accomplishment. Students had 
survived the building of the new school, the 
demolition of the old, a student sit-in, finals 
and all of the other struggles that the school 
year had brought. Students faced ceiling 
leaks, technological nightmares and more 
snow days than they could have bargained 
for but in the end, they came out stronger and 
more comfortable in the school they now called 

Everyone had their own trials and tribulations 
that they had to face, but as the poet Robert 
Frost said, “The only way out is through." Be¬ 
ing able to look back at how far they had come 
would make everything worth the fight. Whether it 
was pulling all-nighters to cram for those last AP 

tests or facing off against Munster to bring home 
the Sectional title for baseball, the end of the year 
provided reassurance that hard work pays off in 
the end. 

On Thursday, May 29, the classrooms were full 
of focused students and the gym was packed 
with soon-to-be graduates. Conversations of 
summer plans and college destinations filled 
the school, and it seemed as if the entire 
student body was looking forward to the new 
stories they would tell. 

No two persons’ stories were exactly alike, 
but one thing that everyone has in common 
now is that they can finally say, “Over and 
out, LC.”

When students get their schedules for the 
upcoming school year, the first thing some of 
them may do is post it on the internet or text 
it around to figure out who’s in their classes. 
Some may find that they have the same 
teacher, just a different hour. Though stu¬ 
dents’ schedules may differ greatly, there 
is a chance that some of their teachers 
may overlap. 

“It’s annoying [that my friends and I 
aren’t in the same class] but the only 
good thing is I can always ask them 
for the homework if I need it,” Taylor 
Jagiella (11) said. 

Some students with siblings are 
used to hearing the phrase “Your 
last name sounds familiar, are you 

related to so-and-so?" asked 
by the teachers who have 
known their siblings from the 

“It’s always kind of exciting 
for me [to have siblings of past 
students]. It gives me something 
else to talk with the younger sibling 
about, I just feel like I almost get to 
know that second sibling better than 
I got to do [the first],” Mr. Tim Bannon, 
History and Business, said. 

As students rotate through their four 
years, the faculty stays the same. They are 
the common demoninator. Who will you 
overlap with?

World Language teachers Mrs. Chris Scheider and Mrs. Leslie Iwema 

Mrs. Chris Schneider’s, World Lan¬ 
guage, and Mrs. Leslie Iwema’s, World 
Language, lives have overlapped in the 
halls of the Freshmen Center since 2001. 
Their classrooms have been next to each 
other for 12 years, and although they teach 
different languages, they have a friendship that 
nothing can come between. 

“It’s interesting to experience the same problems 
in our classrooms and compare language structure,” 
Mrs. Schneider said. 

Through the back office that all the language teachers 
share, Mrs. Schneider and Mrs. Iwema see each other 
many times each day. 

“Our classrooms have always been next to each other 
since I came here in 2001, and when we met we instantly 
clicked and became friends,” Mrs. Iwema said. 

Because of their friendship and similar personalities, Mrs. 
Schneider and Mrs. Iwema share everything from stories to teaching 

“I know I can always bounce an idea off of her and can always share 
ideas and count on her for ideas, and she reciprocates,” Mrs. Iwema 

Their friendship does not just stay inside the walls of Lake Central— they 
have developed a bond out of school as well. _ 

“I'm [Mrs. Iwema’s] daughter’s godmother, and we exchange birthday 
and Christmas presents every year. We invite each other to parties 
too,” Mrs. Schneider said. 

In February of 2012, Mrs. Schneider and Mrs. Iwema traveled to 
Florida to participate in the Disney Princess half marathon. 

“We had a really good time doing the half marathomn Disney 
last year. We dressed up as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, 
and it was really fun. We’re going back again in February to 
do it again," Mrs. Iwema said. 

With the switch over to the new building changing up 
teachers’ classrooms, Mrs. Iwema and Mrs. Schneider 
will no longer be next to each other but that will not 
stand in the way of their friendship. Page by: Jessica

Faculty members bridge the gap between departments 

This year, Mr. Jeff Sandor, 
English, and Mrs. Lauren 
Sandor, Guidance, had the 
r ~ opportunity to work only a 
KT classroom away from each 
^F other. 

* “[Working close to each other 

W is] not awkward at all. As a baseball 
f coach and working in credit recov- 
ery, I might go to her if a student’s 
Wt guidance counselor isn’t there at the 
^F time. I don't think there's anything outra- 
fff geous about it. It’s helpful though,’’ Mr. 
W Sandor said. 

As one of the couples working at Lake 
F Central, Mr. and Mrs. Sandor have experi¬ 
enced some of the benefits of working in such 
close proximity. 

“[It helps when] I forget something at home or 
if she forgets something at home. It’s just the little 

things, and the reminders. It’s a little better than 
trying to get a text message in a school that has no 
service. I never really thought about it that way," Mr. 

Sandor said. 

Whether professional or personal, communication 
is key in any relationship. 

“We have to have a lot of communication mostly 
because of credit recovery and sometimes we have 
students in common that are also on my case 
load,” Mrs. Sandor said 

Although the two work nearly ten steps away 
from each other, seeing each other throughout 
the work day is not always guaranteed. 

“Everyday is different. Some days I don’t 
see him at all. Some days he’s in here 
asking me questions, and some days I’m 
in there asking him questions. Everyday’s 
different," Mrs. Sandor said.

Coming to high school can be difficult 
for freshmen. Whether it’s beginning high 
school or immersing themselves into 
new experiences, freshman year is a 
time to adjust to the next chapter of 
their lives. 

Freshmen have a new building to 
get used to as well as new class¬ 
mates. They have to get acclimated 
to waking up two hours earlier for 
school every day. In the first few 
days of school, passing periods 
will most likely be spent clue- 
lessly wandering the halls in 
hopes of finding the correct 
classroom. These anxieties 
are common for freshmen, 
but they do not face them 

\ Second semester, 

the entire school 
became freshmen 
again. The anticipa¬ 
tion of letting go of the 

comforts of their familiar 
territory left some stu¬ 
dents longing for familiar¬ 
ity. The new additions left 
even the seniors stumbling 
around, unsure of where to 
go. This is the first time since 
the opening of old LC that 
everyone is adjusting to the new 
school together. 

The 2013-2014 student body is 
the first and o'nlv class where every-' 
one, from freshmen to seniors, can be 
lost together

r No matter what social group a 

student falls into, the basis of freshman 
year is usually the same. It is all about 
meeting new people and preparing for the 
rest of one’s high school career. 

Hallways are bigger, classes are more dif- 
■ ficult and the student body is massive - which 

rP gives plenty of opportunities to meet new faces. 

“I have really made more new friends. They are 
from Kahler, Grimmer, Highland and ail over,” Emily 
Lisac (9) said. 

When students from the three middle schools come 
together, their social lives overlap. They must adjust to the 
change of having students from three middle schools come 
together into one school, along with upperclassmen. 

“My friend group has changed quite dramatically, i met a lot of 
people from different schools $ho are a lot more like me, whereas 
|r at [Clark Middle School] I did dot,” Camryn Wallace (9)\said. 
f The rumor in eighth grade is that once someone gets to high school 
they will lose touch with all of their middle school friends, but this is not 
always true. 

Students from different middle school 

s mesh

“My two best friends from [Clark Miagle School] and I are s 
est,” Wallace said. 

While some construct a completely nXw friend group, others add onto 
the one they already have, merging old Ah new. 

“My group of friends has changed but djso stayed the same. I have 
made new friends, but also kept my new OTtes,” Matthew Mireles 
(9) said. 

With the opportunity to come in and out of others’ lives so 
easily, it is not hard to lose sight of one’s self. 

“Show your dominance. Do not move out of the way for 
anybody, do not let anyone take advantage of you,” Mire¬ 
les said.

Nikkitia Banks (9) leaps over obstacles in her pursuit of dance 


When Nikkitia Banks (9) learned that she had premature 
juvenile arthritis in both her knees and hands, she was told that 
she would never dance again. She refused to let the diagnosis 
stop her from doing what she loved. She continues to dance, 
cheer, and do gymnastics. 

“If I walk around too much, it bothers me. Walking up and 
down the stairs hurts. Going to the third floor is the worst,” 
Banks said. 

Banks’s arthritis affects her on a daily basis and because 
of it, she was pushed quit dance and cheer competitions. 
Despite the challenges she faces, Banks continues to practice 
with her sister in order to keep herself in shape. 

“I’ve been closest with [my sister] since we were born 

because there’s four of us. I think [dance] is what brought us 
closer together. I aspire to be like my sister,” Banks said. 

As time passed by, Banks overcame the pain that devel¬ 
oped with the arthritis in order to further advance her dancing 
and cheering career. 

“I got used to dancing through the pain. I'm not sure if I’ll be 
able to dance in the future, but I hope so," Banks said. 

To people who, like Banks, face pain on a daily basis, she 
encourages them to never give up on what they love. 

“When you really want to do something, sometimes you 
have to work through the pain," Banks said.

evolve, oopnomnr 
sions. where one comes to realizations about the future. 

With every conclusion, there is a new beginning. New 
friends, new teachers and new relationships all come at 
the price of something else ceasing to be. Experiencing 
the ending of the old high school and the beginning of 
the new one, the sophomore class underwent the termi¬ 
nation of the eight-period school day and the beginning 
of the Matrix. The sophomores will reach the end of the 
underclassmen era and begin one of being upperclass¬ 

The transition of the renovation caused unity and 
acceptance between the upper class and the sopho¬ 

Having an exceptional year, the sophomores got 
to see their leaders break a 14-year streak in 
which our football team had not beat 
Merrillville, and the ending of a 
30-year period between 
the last semi-state 
game for bas¬ 

bring about 
new opportunities for 
sophomores. With the up- 
perclassmen graduating, sopho¬ 
mores will have to push and prove 
themselves exhibiting their true potential. The 
end of this year marks the beginning of the best 
and the toughest years of high school. 

With all of these endings, it is hard to see what posi¬ 
tives will come from their hardwork. Whether it be ath¬ 
letically, academically, or creatively, every ending brings 
the opportunity for the sophomore class to be excep¬ 
tional. They can take the challenge of the unknown and 
face it head on. The sophomore class will become the 
ones who will take initiative and start new legends and 
surpass old ones. This is the class to rebuild from the 
rubble of so many things and create a legacy that will be 
an inspiration for years to come. Although it is said that 
all good things must come to an end, the ending for the 
so phomores is really just the beginning of snmi

Clifford Fitch (10) strums his way to success 

Being a part of a band is something 
that most kids only dream of as they grow 
up and then miss their chance. Clifford 
Fitch (10) seized his opportunity at a young 
age to fulfill his dream. 

1 “In 4th grade, my music teacher brought in 
a bunch of guitars and I had grabbed one and 
had no idea what I was doing on it, but it just felt 
m t » natural so later I decided to learn. I first started 


playing guitar around five years ago in May when I 
was in fifth grade,” Fitch said. 

§ ~ m Fitch did not just leisurely strum his guitar in his 

^ bedroom, in the past five years he has been in three 

bands including the one he currently plays in. 
x wBB/f “I used to be in a different band called Escaping Aces, 
also known as Frontline, for about two years with Alexan- 
mt der Morgan (10), Adam Lechowicz (10), and Tyler Miklusac 
(10). I was also in another band with Will Wyatt (1 2), Alex- 
ander Morgan (10) and Leslie Lopez (10) called Jack of All 
#, Trades,” Fitch said. 

Fitch now jams out in his band Emerald Lace which he has 
*** f been playing in for almost two years now. 

“Emerald Lace started a while ago before I had joined but they 
were looking for another guitarist. The other members are Tary 
Rolfe (12), Evan Demarre (*12) and Theofanis Rauch (12). Tary and 
I started jamming and he liked my guitar playing so he asked if I could 
join the band. We worked it out so I could still be in Escaping Aces. 
There is no real definition for it, but the best way to put it is Emerald Lace 
is progressive rock,” Fitch said. 

As of right now, Emerald Lace can be considered a “basement band.” 


They spend their time writing songs and practicing with one another for fun. 

“We haven’t played at any gigs, but we just finished recording our 
EP, which is a demo album to feature some songs, but it is not super 
professionally recorded. We have been putting it through Facebook and 4 
Soundcloud and Twitter. We don’t have many views yet because we 
just posted it. When we record them more professionally we hope to 
sell them,” Fitch said. 

Being in a band involves a strong commitment not only to the 
other members, but just in general. There are some sacrifices that 
not only Fitch has to make, but also his parents. 

“We practice at Tary’s house in his basement out in Hobart 
which is about an hour away and I don’t drive so my parents 
have to help out and drive me there. They are very supportive 
about me and the band,” Fitch said. 

Emerald Lace is just starting to spread their name 
through social media, but they are planning on it going 
further than that. 

“To get our name out there we are going to perform 
a lot more next year around Northwest Indiana and get 
bands and places to know us and then move on to 
Chicago," Fitch said. 

Fitch is not in the band just for fun— the experi¬ 
ence teaches him more than he could have 
thought of. 

“Being the least experienced is probably the 
best part about it because I get to learn so 
much from them and their skills," Fitch said.

Jayna McDermott (10) takes on overlapping athletic seasons 

Many students nowadays have busy schedules, beginning at 
7:15 a.m. each day for school, and continuing on for extra¬ 
curricular, homework, spending time with family and making 
time for friends. Doing all of this takes prioritizing, balancing 
and maintaining a schedule. Jayna McDermott (10) is one of 
these students-she juggles varsity cheerleading and a place on 
the JV softball team. 

“I like both of the sports equally and chose to play softball 
and cheer because they are the two sports that I love and 
couldn’t imagine my life without them,” McDermott said. 

When softball is not in season for Lake Central, she plays for 
her travel team. For cheerleading, she takes tumbling and gym¬ 
nastics classes to help improve her skills. By the time cheer¬ 
leading season starts coming to a close, softball conditioning 
has started for the season. 

“The two sports conflict with each other a lot, but I always 

choose the sport that is in season first," McDermott said. 

This year is her second year being on both teams. During her 
freshman year, she was on JV softball and JV cheerleading. 

“I have been cheering and playing baseball and softball for 
pretty much my whole life,” McDermott said. 

With such time-consuming activities, some students must 
resort to staying up late after a practice or a game to catch up 
on schoolwork. 

“I would say that playing both sports and focusing on school- 
work definitely gets stressful sometimes," McDermott said. 

Being in two sports as a sophomore in high school can be 
overwhelming and stressful. Some, like McDermott, are just 
taking it little by little and enjoying the ride. 

“I am not really sure where my future will take me but I am just 
trying to follow my dreams,” McDermott said.

for their 

year is the 
time for stu¬ 
dents to pile on the 
AP classes, clubs and 
teams in hopes that it is 
not too late to start impressing 
colleges. It is a time to start seri¬ 
ously thinking about the future beyond 
high school. 

This is the opportunity to put together all of 
the knowledge that school has given and advance 
to life’s next stage. Remember to keep an open mind 
and consider choices for further education. 

“I feel like junior year is much more diffcult than the 
other years, especially since I have been taking a lot of 
harder clases," Nini Lee (11) said. 

When it comes to deciding which school is the right fit, 
the options may appear endless. More often than not, it 
may be difficult to remain calm when thinking about im¬ 
pressing colleges, so it is important to try to stay relaxed. 

“Junior year has influenced me because it's helping me 
prepare for my future. This year is when I found out that 
I want to be an economics major at the Kelley School 
of Business [at Indiana University],” Brendan Kelly (11) 

It is a common belief that junior year is the hardest 
school year for most students. High school life 
begins to overlap with the preparation 
of college applications. The list 
of things to do does 

not just include 

but also get¬ 
ting ready to taking 
standardized tests like 
the ACT or SAT in order to 
apply to college. 

“I haven’t even thought about col¬ 
lege yet because it seems really over¬ 
whelming. I need to start studying for the 
SAT. The school is making us take the ACT, so I 
have to study for that too so I can get my scores up 
for a good application," Maxwell Rees (11) said. 

So, keep calm during those all-nighters; everything 
that comes out of the overlap is going to be worth it 
once the future comes.

Alyssa Alfano (11) sacrifices senior year for service 

In high school, the typical thing to do is to 
graduate at the end of senior year and proceed 
on to some sort of higher education, but Alyssa 
Alfano (11) is testing the status quo and gradu¬ 
ating early to join the United States Marines 

“I honestly feel like high school isn’t for every¬ 
one, and overall I’ve had a good high school 
experience, but I just felt like it was time for me 
to move on to bigger and better things, I’ve 
always hung out with older people and I just 
felt older than I really am. My mom graduated 
a semester early from high school but the rest 
of my family is kind of against it. They want me 
to wait it out the four years but [I’ve convinced 
them] and they’re for it now and very supportive 
and happy for me,” Alfano said. 

As soon as she graduates in May, Alfano will 
begin training for the Marines. 

“After I graduate, I’ll be at the recruiting sta¬ 
tion at 7 a.m. every day to prepare for boot 
camp. In May, I will swear in and enlist and go 
to Indy for two days, you’ll basically do physi¬ 

cal fitness tests, you’ll get fingerprinted, drug 
tested, and they just check out your body so 
they know that you qualify physically to be a 
Marine,” Alfano said. 

Alfano has been preparing for boot camp 
throughout the end of her junior year, to make 
sure she is ready. 

“As of right now since I’m a guest, I go every 
Wednesday and work out, run, do agility and 
then you’ll get your shipment date," Alfano said. 

The influence of her family, especially her dad, 
helped Alfano realize her calling for the Marines. 

“My dad was a Marine and now he’s in the 
National Guard just to keep up with military, all 
my uncles were Marines. Neither my older sister 
or older brother wanted to be in the Marines, 
and when I asked my dad about it he was 
literally flabbergasted. I’m planning on going to 
college while I’m in the military but I’m thinking 
about making it a career," Alfano said.

“I cut my hair really for anyone fighting cancer in general. But a little 
over a year ago, my aunt was diagnosed with brain cancer. Seeing 
what she and my family went through really upset me," Alayna Prisby 
(11) said.

No vanity^ 
just vaIGT 

Alayna Prisby (11) contributes to cause dear to her heart 

t was diagnosed with brain canci 
jly wefit through really upset me, 

Some girls spend hours combing, blow drying, straightening and 
curling their hair to make it look just right. Hair can be a girl’s prized 
possession. Hair product advertisements cloud media today, and 
for rpany, hair is the center of beauty But sometimes, selflessness 
and qravery say more about someone’s Beauty than appearances. 

“I cut my hair real(y for anvonefighting cancer in general, but a 
little overayear ago, my aunt was diagnoseoVith brain cancer. 
Seeing what she and my family wefft through-really upset me," 
Alayna Prisby (1 1)‘said. 

- Prisby shaved her head for St. Baldrick’S on March 17, a coura- 
£ geous act that inspired conv ocat ion. But still, some quietly won¬ 
dered why or how she had the nerve to chop off her long, dark hair. 
"I was thinking of doing it foF'everyone!^here’s a lot of history of 
■ cancer in my family and a scary amount of cases in the U.S.," Prisby 
said. jfc. * 

For Prisby, the hair did not matter, it was a selfless act she felt 
necessafy and an inspirational act of courage. Although Prisby had 

her bouts of nervousness, her purpose was clear, and she was 
determined to put it above all else. 

“The day of, I was actually really excited. It was the week before 
[that] I was nervous. During [the haircut] I got a little nervous, but 
after the first piece was cut I relaxed. I felt really good about myself 
after. Seeing all the support and everyone cheering me on made me 
really happy,” Prisby said. 

Prisby alone raised $3,800 dollars for the cause, and that is not 
including the priceless value of the wig that her hair will make. The 
money raised will go to continue cancer research, and eventually, 
finding a cure. 

In 2014, it is estimated that 1,665,540 people will be diagnosed 
with cancer in America. One-third of women develop cancer. There 
are plenty of women who need a wig, and thanks to Alayna Prisby, 
one more woman in need will have one.

the final 

on the first 

day of freshman 

year, some students 
wonder how it is going to 
feel when high school is over, 
whether the final day will bring grief or 
relief. As a senior, the responsibilities, expec¬ 
tations, college applications and post-high school 
decisions pile up. Whether students are going to col¬ 
lege or right into a career, the future is finally becoming 

While the future is approaching, so is the time before 
leaving high school behind. Saying goodbye to high 
school does not hit until everything becomes a “last." 
Some may not grasp that it is the last time exchang¬ 
ing schedules with friends or sitting and cheering at a 
football game. It is the last time writing an essay for In¬ 
tensive Writing or gathering with friends in the hallway 
during passing period. It can be playing the last game, 
taking the last period of a favorite class or enjoy¬ 
ing the last Saturday night with the people 
that have helped make a million mem¬ 
ories. When May comes around 
and all of the seniors are 
finishing the last 

dance at prom, 
maytje it 


these high 
school memories 
are the ones that never 
go away. 

At graduation, seniors will start to 
look around and realize that they will nev¬ 
er see some of these faces again. It does not 
matter what social groups some joined, what clothes 
were worn, or what music was listened to when ev¬ 
eryone is passing through the same stage to get their 
diplomas. Everything has been leading up to this: 
packing away 18 years of memories and making room 
for the new ones. From the smiles, joys, struggles and 
tears that have overlapped during high school, this is 
the moment many have been waiting for.

Michael Skvarek (12) had the oppportunity to manage the State

Michael Skvarek (12) spends high school career balancing sports and technology 

As the bell rings at 2:09 each day, some students are free to 
use their time at their leisure. Michael Skvarek (12), however, 
has a little more on his plate. Not only was he a student direc¬ 
tor for LCTV, involved in all honors classes and an assistant to 
the athletic trainer and technology department, he also man¬ 
aged the State Runner-Up basketball team. 

“During fall and spring seasons for sports, I helped [Chris 
Hall, athletic trainer]. I got to know Chris and all that he does, 
and I saw behind the scenes of the athletic side and how stuff 
is done," Skvarek said. 

Skvarek had the opportunity to manage the State-qualifying 
basketball team— a sport that has always been close to his 

“I really liked basketball from a young age. My dad played 
basketball in high school and I have always been a huge fan. I 
trained under one of the former managers for a year," Skvarek 


Although he greatly enjoys athletics, he found that technol¬ 
ogy also sparks his interest. 

“I always thought making websites and doing stuff with 
computers was cool. I started out with LCTV and got to know 
[Mrs. Laura Zeller, English] real well. For the first few weeks 
she could tell that I knew what I was doing and could trust 

me,” Skvarek said. 

Being a member of LCTV opened up opportunities for Skva¬ 
rek to shadow the technology department and get to know 
more about his field of interest. 

“I would be aiding for the IIS room and go room-to-room to 
learn how to fix this and that. During the summer Mrs. Zeller 
and [Mrs. Lisa Moreno, Science] helped me get a job with 
technology. I really learned a lot from [the technology] guys 
because they all had been in my shoes, and most of them 
went to high school here and went to college for computers or 
math. They know how I feel. Yes, you’re a student, but you are 
learning at the same time," Skvarek said. 

Skvarek is planning on attending Purdue University. He 
wants to major in either computer engineering or computer 
science, but the technological aspects of his life have found 
ways to overlap with others. 

“Things that I do in tech can help for sports because we do 
stats for basketball, and we bring a computer and printer to 
every game. It kind of helps having a basic computer back¬ 
ground, just in case something breaks you know how to fix it 
on the scene," Skvarek said.

Victoria Toren (12) and Elizabeth Toren (12) prove that twins don’t 
always follow the same paths. Elizabeth decided to graduate a 
semester early, while Victoria attended for both semesters of senior

Twin sisters Elizabeth and Victoria Toren (12) hold separate future goals 

Being twins does not automatically mean two siblings hold 
identical futures. Senior year is the time to find one’s own path 
to success. In Elizabeth and Victoria Toren’s (12) case, being 
separated by a semester graduation has been bittersweet. 

u l was sad [when I graduated at semester] because we 
always waited at the bus stop together and walked to class 
together. I didn't want her to be alone because I knew I 
wouldn’t see her as much." Elizabeth said. 

Leaving high school early was beneficial for Elizabeth’s goals 
and finances. Now she has the time to focus on what she 
would like to do for her future career and think more about 
becoming a veterinarian. 

“I wanted to work to get money for school. I work at the 
Humane Society Calumet Area in Munster and will go to the 
Vet institute in Tinley in October,” Elizabeth said. 

Although her sister has already moved on, Victoria is finish¬ 
ing her last year through second semester. She is ready to 
move forward with her life and leave home. 

“I think I’m just ready to be done. I’m ready to move on. I 
never thought I would want to leave home, but now I’m ready 
to," Victoria said. 

Both girls have memories from their high school experience 
that they share, including both being involved in marching 
band and color guard. 

“It has been nice; I’ve met a lot of new people. My color 
guard is like a family,” Victoria said. 

Overall, Victoria enjoyed her past years at Lake Central but 
is relieved to know her high school experience is coming to a 
close. Starting a new life is not easy, however, her time in high 
school has prepared her for her future. 

“I felt more relaxed this year knowing it was the end. I had 
the most friends this year because I made all of them from the 
past four years.” Victoria said. 

Senior year can be a challenge at first, but becomes easier 
with time. Being involved and having supportive friends and 
family members make the four years less difficult. However, 
the years you spend in high school help pave the path for the 
future. Elizabeth and Victoria feel they are prepared to begin 
their own journeys onward to the rest of their lives.

California dreams were all you 
talked about. In the second 
picture of you on your way 
to San Diego State, so sure about your future. We know you’ll become a strong, 
independent adult who will contribute to our world and make it better. We have been

Continue to follow all your dreams and you will succeed. You are my 
everything and I am so proud of you. 


Momma Erika 

We are very proud and honored 
to call Sophie our daughter. She 
is a fun-loving, hard-working, 
caring person that has never 
been afraid of a challenge. She 
has always stayed true to herself 
and has remained a feisty, red¬ 
headed, beautiful person (inside 
and out) with a free spirit and an 
infectious laugh. We wish you 
much happiness, success, love 
and peace as you enter the next 
chapter of your life. We love you 
very much! Forever, Mom, Dad,

Stutler plays the mountain dulcimer amongst the other instruments 
she has mastered. Stutler developed a love for music and decided 
she wanted to pursure a career in performing at a young age.

LeAnn Stutler (11) pursues her dream of a life full of music 

LeAnn Stutter’s (11) love for music is proven by her 
ability to overlap as much music as possible in her life. 
Not only does she sing for the school, but she also plays 
and performs with her church and her band. 

To improve her musical education she has taken music 
theory, music history and appreciation and AP music 
theory, and to participate in the school’s programs she 
sings with the choir and Trebleaires. 

“Trebleaires is the all-girls show choir so there’s singing 
and dancing involved most of the time. For the most 
part [we perform] in the concerts here [at LC.] We get a 
grade for them,” Stutler (11) said. 

Outside of school, Stutler plays piano, guitar, mandolin, 
saxophone and more. She feels that her strength lies 
in her voice, and she uses her vocal skills to help her 
develop in playing instruments. 

because I’m a stronger singer than musician, those skills 
are still developing,” Stutler said. 

Stutler overlaps playing and singing when she per¬ 
forms with her band, Capernaum, at local venues and 
festivals. SHHI 1 

“[My band does] St. John’s ‘Concert in the Park,’ we 
did Griffith’s last year. We’re doing St. John’s ‘Concert 
in the Park’ on June 14, too. We play at Goodfella’s in 
Cedar Lake. They have a jam night on Sunday nights 
that’s open to minors," Stutler said. 

In addition to Capernaum, Stutler performs with the 
musical groups at her church. 

“I play in the chime choir at my church. I play in both 
the adult and the youth [musical groups] at my church, 
[and] I play guitar in that and I sing in that,” Stutler said.

Matthew Tao (10) plays to the beat of his own metronome 

Matthew Tao (10) 
finds the time to 
balance out a heavy 
schedule of four honors 
classes and band. It might 
not be as easy as it sounds, 
but Tao molds his schedule to 
work for him so he can excel in 
his musical endeavors. His goal « 
is to become the best at what he 
* does. 

s “I’m in Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band. 

| Winter Percussion and Marching 
Band,” Tao said. 

u& Tao started playing piano at an early 
age and continues to perfect his talent 
1# by practicing every day. Playing just one 
instrument can be a challenge in itself, but 
after learning how to play the piano, Tao 
¥ started to play the French horn. 

“The first instrument I played was the piano. 

I started in third grade. I took lessons with the 

teacher, then in middle school I played the French 

horn. I play piano for Jazz Band and Winter Per 

cussion. I played French horn for Wind Ensemble 

and mellophone for Marching Band," Tao said. 

The saying “practice makes perfect" is a motto 
that Tao lives by. To become great at what he 
plays, practicing is a must. 

“I practice piano a lot. I practice anywhere from 
two to three hours. French horn, I practice a half of 
an hour to an hour," Tao said. 

Not only does Tao want to be great at playing 
for his own satisfaction, but he has others in mind 
when he plays and practices. 

“My inspirations are making my teachers proud 
and achieving new standards for myself. I want to 
be the best I can be," Tao said,. 

With his vast areas of interest in music, Tao 
remembers to view his music positively and enjoy 
his work above all else. 

“I like them all a lot. Everytime I’m in the class 
it’s just really fun to be there, and I never get 
tired,” Tao said.

Ictv & digital yearbook staff 


As hackneyed as it sounds, my 
high school experience seems to 
have slipped between my fingers. It's 
an odd thing how fast a school year 
seems to go, because as a publica¬ 
tions staff and as a school, we have 
accomplished so much and come 
such a long way. 

As a staff, we were behind the 
scenes when our school made 
national news and when the Lake 
Central we knew and loved came 
crumbling down. We covered news 
in a professional manner and gained 
a huge audience on our social media 
platforms as well as our up-and-com¬ 
ing website- I 
think the “Pub" experience is a unique 
one in the sense that we get to do 
such “grown up" duties while having 
the times of our lives. 

My Publications experience has 
taught me so much more than how 
to put together a 300-page book 
or meet deadlines. These past two 
years have been about building 
lifelong friendships and working under 

book information 

pressure and stepping up to take 
responsibility. It's been about totally 
geeking out over fonts and sympathiz¬ 
ing about curly-haired struggles with 
VP. It’s about making complex excel 
sheets with Wad over a couple boxes 
of Thin Mints. The things I will remem¬ 
ber won’t be tearing my hair out over 
a yearbook copy but horsey-back 
rides with Tristyn, Matt and Jamie or 
jamming out to Beyonce when stress 
relief was absolutely necessary. I 
could go on forever, because it seems 
like in Publications, there are always 
memories to be made. Publications 
has truly defined my high school 
experience by giving me a place to 
call home and journalism career path 
to follow into my future. 

My gratitude toward all the people 
in both Publications and at Lake 
Central who made my time here so 
memorable is hard to put into words, 
but I hope a simple thank-you will 
suffice for all I have gained from the 
overlap of my amazing high school 

love, Samantha Gross

1995 - 


£ ^R/like would make everyone happy and have everyone have a smile 
on their face. Everyone that would hang out with him got closer as a 
family. I think [that] now we talk more and help each other out after 
what happened to him,” Mark Flores (11) said. 

I didn't really know my brother because he was always [kept to] 
himself. He was also with his friends all the time, so he wasn’t really 
home. I did know that he loved football, and he loved to destroy a lot of 
stuff. He liked to hang out with friends all the time. When our family was 
over, he would usually be at a friend’s house, [or] at Redar playing a foot¬ 
ball game or something. He loved to go to the weightlifting room, too. 

He was a really strong man, obviously. I’m just, I’m going to miss him. He 
tested a lot of people when he left, and if you went to the funeral, there 
was a lot of people there. [His friends] were there, and [they] were really 
supportive. [They] helped us with a lot," Larry Doss (9) said. 



Mike Doss was like a brother to me. He is going 
to most definitely be remembered for the things 
that he has done for of all of us, especially how 
he changed most of our lives and putting smiles 
on our faces just by being there for us and be¬ 
ing the friend that he is. Even though he is not 
here with us physically, we know that he is still 
here with us emotionally, considering the love 
that we have for him is so big, and the love that 
he had for all of us is so big. We all still have the 
emotion for Mike in our hearts. That peace will 
not leave us at all. We go day to day struggling 
and just talking about how Mike has left us, but 
we still know that when we come together, that 
Mike is still with us. We pray about him and we 
talk about him all the time as if he is still here. 
We feel like he is spiritually [here], especially the 
people that were most affected by him leaving. 
Knowing that Mike is gone has really [had] an 
effect on all of us, but in a positive way. We've 
gotten closer and closer. The people who have 
had their struggles with each other were able to 
come together and settle their differences. It’s 
crazy how one man can change a lot of us for 
the better. Even when he was here, he would 
always make things better for us. Just knowing 
that he is gone, it uplifts our spirit every day to 
just constantly tell ourselves that this what Mike 
would've wanted,” Malik Whitaker (1 0) said. 

Mike was like a brother to all of us, and we 
miss him. He did a lot of things for us, [and] he 
was always there for us," John Lubotina (11) 


Mike was always a good friend. One of the 
things that I always remember about Mike is 
when you’d make him laugh, he always had 
that really big smile. He just smiles real big. He 
was always really the first one to help some¬ 
one. If anyone had any problems, he was there. 
Mike was definitely like a brother," Joshua 
Lambert (11) said. 

Mike was always like a big brother to me. 

Even though he is gone now, he will still be 
my big brother. I have known him since the 
day he moved out here. He literally changed 
my life completely, and even though his soul 
[has] gone away from us, I still dream about 
him, just giving me advice when I have my ups 
and downs. I just hope he knows that we are 
always thinking about him, and we will visit any 
time he feels,” Rachael Mazon (9) said. 

^Mlfce was-one of the funniest guys I knew, and he 
was always there for me. He was there for every¬ 
one else that needed him. He was so kind and he 
was just fun to be around. Everyone is going to 
miss him, and I know that I will keep my promise 
to him and keep him and his family and his friends 
and Jessie [Bodnar] safe," Duaa Hijaz (10) said. 

Caleb was the [best] friend I have ever had. 
Since my freshman year of high school, we 
have been best friends. We got really close 
this year because we had two classes in a row 
together, and all we did was talk and laugh. He 
always brightened my day when he smiled or 
whenever we would laugh. His laugh was so 
obnoxious, just like mine. I’m pretty lucky that I 
got to be so close to someone like him. He [is] 
the best person I know, and he will never be 
replaced. I’ll love him forever. No matter what, 
he will be in my heart," Cayla Jansky (11) said. 

1 1 could talk about how perfect mine and 
Caleb’s relationship was and how important 
he was to me, but he already knows that, and 
that’s all that counts. Caleb and I had one of 
the most complicated relationships for two 
years that I don’t think anybody in the world 
could understand but us, and somehow it 
always worked for us in the long run. He was 
my rock and inspiration. Caleb was there when 
no one else was, he believed in me when no 
one else [did]. He also had loved me more 
than anyone else could love a person. I would 
do anything to bring him back here with me, 
so we could spend one last moment together, 
but knowing he is in a better place puts a 
little ease at my mind, even if it’s without all 
his close friends and loved ones by his side. I 
know he is watching over every one of us, by 
our side, always looking out for us, because 
that’s what he did even when he was here. I 
think of every moment and memory we had 
together and will cherish that forever. He was 
my first love, and I will never forget him. I love 
you Caleb Michael Salazar and will see you 
sometime again, Superman," Brianne Spiegel 
(12) said. 

Caleb Michael Salazar truly was one super 
man. Caleb had not only physical strength, but 
he had a mind full of strength and a spirit full of 
courage and love. He was one who accepted 
change. He knew everything had a beginning 
and an end, and the only thing that stayed con¬ 
stant was change itself. He made me realize 
nothing is permanent, and you must fully live in 
the present. This is the biggest lesson I have 
learned from his passing. He will live on in my 
heart and the hearts of others. Some people 
come into our lives as blessings, and others 
come into our Ives as lessons, but he was truly 
both to many. Rest easy, Cal,’’ Logan Sommer 
(10) said. 

daleb was the most understanding person in 
the world, [and he] always gave the best ad¬ 
vice, even if he was in a tough position himself. 
He was ridiculously funny, and you never knew 
what he was going to do next. That’s one of 
the best memories I have: him being spontane¬ 
ous and crazy. He was the strongest person 
I knew, and I looked up to that. He always 
seemed like he was older, even though I was,’’ 
Christopher Pritchett (1 2) said. 

We Will Meet Again Little Cuz 

My eyes filled up with tears as I heard the news 

It never occured to me, how much I could lose 

I find myself wishing that it wasn't real 

Every time I think about it, pain is all I can feel 

Tears fall from my eyes, I can barely see 

But my heart tells me that he’ll always be with me 

I’m glad he feels no pain now; he lives in a perfect land 

I can still feel the soft touch on my shoulder of his loving hand 

And I will love and miss him forever 

Until the day we are again together. 

Together in that perfect place above, 

Filled with caring, sharing and love 

But until that day comes, I will wipe my tears away. 

And hopefully see him again someday 
Rest in Peace Caleb Michael 
I love you! 

Ms. Jessica LaPato, West Lake 

(Caleb and I met in seventh grade and from then on, we became best 
friends. Within a year or two, we knew everything about each other. I never 
thought of him as a ‘best friend’ because he was family. I called his mom 
Mom’, and he did the same to mine. Caleb was my brother. No matter what 
has happened, he will never be anything less than the person he always 
acted towards me," Brandon Manchak (1 2) said.

You'll always be our shining ‘Starr’! 







Rita McClure, Grandmother 

Her biggest quote was definitely ‘live life to the 
fullest.’ She was a good chick; it sucks that 
she's gone," Steven Morris (12) said. 

She was a very interesting girl. She spoke her 
mind, which I liked. She had some interest¬ 
ing ideas, obviously. I liked her for as long as I 
knew her. She was only in my class for the last 
nine weeks of school, and it was very upsetting 
when I read about that in the summer. I felt 
[really] bad. It just shows you [that] you never 
know what’s happening in people’s lives," 

Mr. Bryan Szalonek, History, said. 

Leotie attended the Lake Central School 
[Corporation] from Kindergarten to fourth 
grade; then [she] moved to LaPorte, Indiana 
and returned to Lake Central High School in 
January 2013. She was a friend to all whom 
she met, but you didn’t want to get on her 
bad side. She had intelligence beyond books, 
as her teachers, friends and family knew very 
well. She had wisdom beyond her age. She 
loved her family with all her heart. When she 
saw her little brothers, she’d holler ‘It’s the 
baybays!’ She loved animals, especially her 
pet mouse, Hashimoto. We will never forget 
our beautiful Leotie. She shines down from the 
stars, especially after it rains, so when you see 
that rainbow, it is her watching and guiding 
us. Leotie is our bright shining ‘Starr,’ shining 
down upon us from afar,” 

Rita McClure, Grandmother, said.

ire do viol overlap? 

^/e overfapWen individuals unite to make the 
de nt bod y. We overlap when our experiences 
esh and, aU ofa sudden, we see just how 
j we are all c 

It’s wheit^n Aug. 7, only 337 student park- 
Qfl passesj/verePesued and the “great pass 

_ d, causing desperate students 

t band tdjjBfher in a carpooling brigade. It’s 
on Dec. 11 when Jazz I, Jazz II and Symphonic 
bands performed for the last time and shared 
the same feeling of uncertainty over where they 
could carry over to. It’s during the last week of 
first semester when the students could watch 
the school turn over into a new building as they 
toured the new academic wing and found com¬ 
fort in seeing elements of the old school in new, 
unfamiliar classrooms. It’s watching the school 
go from groundwork to grand opening. It’s being 
able to sand down the rough edges and smooth 
everything over again. 

During Winter Break, the school and the com¬ 
munity overlapped when the public came into 
the old school for one last time to purchase the 
desks we once sat in, lockers we once used to 
meet at and the equipment that once gave us the 

opportunity to learn by hands-on experience. Our 
lives overlapped when we faced the rocky start 
of second semester with the same frustrated, 
promising attitude and during the Polar Vortex 
Twitter raid when nearly two weeks of snow days 
drove us stir-crazy. 

We shared in the jokes about the new bells, 
that sounded painfully similar to something out 
of an airport terminal and could be heard from 
the first floor of the Freshman Center to the third 
story of the West Wing. We shared in the tech¬ 
nological struggles as the Publications classes 
survived almost a month without Internet or a 
server to work off of and teachers schoolwide 
became increasingly upset with their brand-new 
SMART boards. Despite the growing pains of the 
new school, we knew we could face the future in 
our new, spacious desks and wide hallways. We 
had turned into something state-of-the-art, and it 
felt more and more like home with each passing 

We also shared in the harder times. No matter 
our relationship to Michael Doss (11) and Caleb 
Salazar (12), we came together and mourned 
their deaths in April with a sense of school unity 
never felt before. Many students found a shoulder 

to cry on, an ear to listen, and a hand to help 
them back onto their feet - sometimes in total 

With the hardships, though, came plenty of 
things to celebrate. Mr. Tom Clark’s, Social Stud¬ 
ies, life as an educator and veteran overlapped 
when he was awarded the National Veteran 
Teacher Award on March 3. The excitement 
continued down to Bankers Life Fieldhouse in 
Indianapolis when the boys varsity basketball 
team faced Arsenal Tech in the State Champi¬ 
onship game on March 29. Whether from the 
stands or from our living rooms, the community 
came together to support our boys. Boys and 
girls from the diving team made it to State for the 
first time in years, Theater placed third at Region¬ 
al with “Drum Taps," and the boys baseball team 
brought home the Regionals championship. 

A year has passed, bringing plenty of hardships 
and celebrations with it, and no one person had 
the exact same experience. This year we came, 
we saw, and a lot of people conquered. Our 
lives overlapped and we moved on to bigger and 
better things.
