Net Gain 2017 was Lake Forest's response to Rick Telander's five-part profile on the Orr Academy High School basketball team. A fundraiser was created to support the Orr basketball program and to create a cultural exchange to positively impact young men from both Orr Academy High School and Lake Forest High Schools. That initial fundraiser raised over $33,000.

As a result of the success of Net Gain 2017, Joe Dondanville, who produced the outstanding documentary Gamechangers, which tells the extraordinary story of the New Trier High School/Marshall Metropolitan High School basketball games in 1965 and 1966, contacted Lake Forest High School about developing a partnership to create a follow-up event.

As a result of this partnership, Net Gain 2018 featured four high school basketball teams in two games:

1. Orr Academy High School (CPS) vs. Lake Forest High School
2. Marshall Metropolitan High School (CPS) vs. New Trier High School

The fundraiser concluded with an after-game barbecue with teams, coaches, sponsors and volunteers.

Much more information about this fundraising project and WGN-TV's coverage of it (under "gallery" tab) can be found here.

The Scouts came up with another lopsided victory against a team who had also done the same during this playoff--defeating Carmel 13-3 in their Sectional Semifinal game. Defense held a strong Stevenson team to just three points.

Lake Forest will take on New Trier, who defeated Glenbrook South 14-7 in their Sectional Semifinal game. Lake Forest will be hosting the Super-Sectional game on May 29 at West Campus Varsity Field starting at 7:30 PM. See you there. Go Scouts!!

Lake Forest 15 - Lake Zurich 4
The Scouts had no problem in getting by Lake Zurich, but Stevenson lies ahead when the Scouts meet them for the Sectional Championship game on Friday, May 25 at Warren High School - 500 N. O'Plaine Rd in Gurnee at 7:00PM. Each team has had lopsided victories on their way to the Sectional Championship. Could that result in a close contest for the championship game?

Congratulations go out to Audrey Kaus and Kara Antonucci, who were selected for the 2018 IHSA Girls Lacrosse All-State Honorable Mention Team. The First Team and Honorable Mention honorees can be viewed here.
