09-07-2010 - Reavis high school
Hi Jim, I'm Donna Allen and we went to school together. I want to thank you for this web site and all your hard work. I used to work for Classmates and now I want to let everyone know about Don Lunt and how he impersonates other people on Classmates. He pretends to be several people mostly women making fun of you and it's time he was exposed. You need to let everyone from our class at Reavis know about him and his lies.
Reavis competes in the South Suburban Conference, which was formed in 2006. Prior to this, the school was a part of the South Inter-Conference Association (SICA). Reavis is a member of the Illinois High School Association (IHSA), which governs most sports and competitive activities in the state.
The following Reavis teams finished in the top four of their respective state championship tournaments sponsored by the IHSA:
Baseball: 2nd place (1983-84)
Bowling (girls): 3rd place (1983-84, 87-88); 2nd place (1988-89)
Football: Semifinalist (1988-89); 2nd place(1980-81); State Champions (1982)
Wrestling: 3rd place (1957-58); State Champions (1960-61, 61-62, 64-65)
Reavis High School was the site for all of the wrestling matches at the 1959 Pan American Games.
In three years, coach Dennis Wierzalâ€™s team won 34 of 39 games and finished 2-2-1 in the state. The 1982 squad (12-1) ousted Thornton, East St. Louis and Glenbard North, then beat New Trier 20-7 for the Class 6A title as RB/LB Joe Karmeris rushed for 121 yards and three touchdowns. Other standouts were Ray Cook, Ed Bucz, Tim DeBow and Joe Mendez.
2. Wrestling trifecta
Coach John Fitzgerald produced state championship wrestling teams in 1961, 1962 and 1965. Five individuals won state titles â€” Willy Roy (145), Dave Jackson (103) and Don Graf (133) in 1961, Jackson (112) and Bernie Mehaljevic (95) in 1962 and Chet Mirus (133) in 1965. Mehaljevic, Rich Wood, Vic Marcucci and Tom Giambarberee were runner-up finishers.
3. Baseball runner-up
In 1984, coach Ron Czarneckiâ€™s baseball team finished second in the state tournament. The Rams (33-5), featuring a dominant pitching staff led by John Sabbatino, Mike Pietras and Jim Schultz, beat Fremd 11-0 and Oak Park 6-5 in a dramatic semifinal before losing to Downstate Morton 9-7 for the title. Chris Gray and Ed Gudewicz were the hitting stars.
4. Doubles champs
In badminton, the 2007 doubles team of Ni Van and Joanna Stachulak swept the state championship. They were so dominant that none of their matches extended beyond two sets as the talented duo completed a 36-0 season. Coach Del Smithâ€™s 2004 and 2005 doubles team of twins Anna and Mary Bielanska finished second in the state meet.
In girls bowling, Don Bylut and Glenn Marin coached the girls team to third place in the state meet in 1988 and second in 1989. The 1989 squad (12-2) was led by six seniors: twins Chrissy and Kathy Kamenske, Sue Kincade, Theresa Ratke, Doreen Shaven and Becky Gaines. The squad knocked down 10,173 pins while state champion Fenton had 10,233.
