Soccer deserves North’s respect

By Sports Editor John Conway

Over the summer, I had my first taste of soccer fandom at Chicago’s Soldier Field. It was round 16 in the World Cup, and the U.S. was battling Belgium to advance to the quarterfinals. The city had been hosting viewing parties for the USA games, and the crowd had grown so large that the European football game was incidentally viewed at an American football stadium.

For the entire match, I was scared to blink in fear of missing anything important. I remember standing in awe as I watched Everton’s Tim Howard save goal after goal and gain the adoration of every fan in the field. In the end, Belgium gained a 2-1 lead over the U.S. in extra time, and the throngs of American fans left Soldier Field downhearted.

1. Windbreaker/Water Resistant Jacket

From my personal experience, any physical activity done during the winter requires extensive layering in order to prevent hypothermia.

If you are going participate in activities that could be dictated by unpredictable weather, a water resistant jacket is the way to go. When purchasing, I strongly recommend picking a larger size than usual so that you can flaunt all your layers without looking like a marshmallow popped in the microwave for a few seconds. You can purchase one of these bad boys at any sports retailer; from Nike to Lululemon, there are a variety of options depending on your price range.

Senior Liz Risley’s heart thundered in her chest. Each anxiety-ridden step brought her closer to reality. Risley had been waiting for this moment for years.

At the end of the hallway, people crowded around the cast list posted just outside Room 269.

“It was either going to be the walk of shame or victory,” Risley said. “I just couldn’t tell which. Then I saw the cast list, and I freaked out. I always wanted to be Beatrice, but I didn’t go out there expecting to be her.”

Risley scored the lead role in this year’s fall play, “Much Ado About Nothing.”

As Nov. 1 approaches, many students across the nation are scrambling to finish their college applications.

However, for several students at Naperville North, college applications were submitted two months ago in August.

Senior Tommy Bleiffus began his application for the Coast Guard Academy in May of his junior year, and he submitted his application several weeks ago.

Bleiffus was one out of 25 students in the nation who recently received a Letter of Assurance from the Coast Guard Academy stating his admittance. This means that upon final review of his application and after passing the Department of Defense medical examination, Bleiffus is guaranteed a seat in the Coast Guard Academy.
