This year, any student enrolled in a curricular music ensemble at Naperville North will have the opportunity to apply for the Tri-M Music Honor Society, according to Donald Stinson, co band director and founder of Tri-M’s NNHS chapter.

Tri-M, formerly known as Modern Music Masters, is a musical organization that prides itself on character, leadership and service, Stinson said. The music department is currently accepting applications.

By Staff Writer Jennifer Fortman

On Friday, Oct. 17, seniors Abbie Boswell and Jessica Hu took home a Huskie victory in a big win for the varsity girls tennis team.

As a doubles team, Boswell and Hu are heading to state next weekend after having won all three matches at sectionals. They were the only qualifiers from the NNHS team. Boswell celebrated her win, especially against tough opponents like Lisle High School, Wheaton North High School and Glenbard South High School.

“It felt great to win,” Boswell said. “It was a really tough match, and our opponents were really good. We won 7-6 in the tiebreaker so it was obviously really close.”

Boswell said that she will improve her game by practicing her volleys and overheads before the IHSA state match next weekend, which will take place at Buffalo Grove High School on Thursday, Oct. 23, Friday, Oct. 24, and Saturday, Oct. 25.

What’s left for the football team?

October 17, 2014 Features, Sports No Comments

By Sports Editor John Conway

It was the toughest night of the season. Naperville North High School’s playoff prospects, which began with so much promise against Neuqua Valley High School, were diminished with a 41-0 loss against Wheaton Warrenville South.

Undefeated in their first two weeks of play, the Huskies seemed to have a legitimate chance in the post-season. But with six straight losses over their next six games, everyone at NNHS has been asking the same question: what happened to Huskie football? Head Coach Sean Drendel shed light on what has went wrong.

“Well, [we] stopped believing in what we were doing,” Drendel said. “The Glenbard North game, looking back now, really hurt us. We had a chance to beat a really good team, and we fell for them late in the game. It hurts. It changes your belief in what you’re doing, and it changes the mental attitude towards the game.” … Continue Reading
