A coeducational day school serving students JK-12

Despite the fall athletic season looking very different this year, many of the athletes were able to safely compete in their sports. View a video created by Latin's Athletic Department that was played at the virtual fall sports banquet and take a look at their individual and team accomplishments below.

Boys and Girls Cross Country
ISL: Boys First Place; Girls First Place
Regional: Boys First Place; Girls First Place
Sectional: Boys Third Place; Girls Second Place

The upper school cross country teams were the best teams in Latin's long strong history of producing excellent teams. The girls were ranked number one in the state for most of the season and the boys as high as fifth. At the conference meet, Latin swept all four JV and varsity races with the girls varsity team earning a historic perfect score!

JV Boys Golf
Overall Record: 4-3
Highlights from the JV boys golf season included a barnburner win against De La Salle Institute at Jackson Park Golf Course and a rowdy team scramble to finish up the season at Sydney Marovitz Golf Course.

Varsity Boys Golf
ISL: Third Place
Regional: First Place
Sectional: Third Place

In a year unlike any other, the Latin boys varsity golf team displayed grit, enthusiasm, optimism and zest in a time that did not always present the environment to do so. In a "normal" year, the boys' would have qualified for the IHSA 1A State Tournament, something to hang their hats on and their chins held high. A special thank you to all of the seniors who, in too many ways to list, were the building blocks to this program in recent years.

Varsity Girls Golf
Overall Record: 9-1
ISL: First Place

Regional: First Place
Sectional: Third Place
The team was 9-1 in dual matches this season with their only loss being to a really talented Fenwick squad. The girls won a dual match against Loyola Academy on their home course and also on their Senior Day. Though they qualified for the State Finals, the final round of competition was not held. 

Girls Swimming
Overall Record: 5-3
Sectional: Fifth Place

Placing in the top 12 individually at Sectionals and scoring points for Latin included: 
Elena S.- 9th in the 200 free, 5th in the 500 free 
Zoe S.- 9th in the 100 fly, 10th in the 50 free 
Alexa S.- 7th in the 200 IM, 5th in the 100 back
Ashley R.- 6th in the 200 IM, 2nd in the 100 breast
Elro S.- 8th in the 50 free, 10th in the 100 fly 
Katie C.- 10th in the 200 free, 12th in the 500 free 

JV Girls Tennis
Overall Record: 9-2   
The Romans became closer as a team, worked hard, and overcame difficult opponents such as Walter Payton and Lane Tech. The coaches were so proud of what they all accomplished this season and are looking forward to the next season.

Varsity Girls Tennis
Overall Record: 14-1
ISL: First Place
Sectional: First Place

Sectionals was a repeat of history for Latin's first and second doubles teams to face off in the finals. This isn’t always the best-case scenario but it is pretty impressive and shows the hard work they had put into the season. The coaches were proud of the resilience and adaptability of the players to have a successful season.

Sailing
State Championship Regatta: Fourth Place
Chicago Yacht Club Team: First Place

The sailing team had a wonderful season, especially with summer-like temperatures in November. The regattas were few due to restricted inter-state travel and limits on clubs hosting outside teams during the pandemic, but Latin endured and the eight varsity and two JV sailors practiced three times per week. This paid off at the November 7-8 State Shepard's Championship Regatta with Latin placing fourth out of 15! Though falling short to Lake Forest High School,  U of C Lab School and Loyola Academy, Latin defeated local rivals St. Ignatius, New Trier and Walter Payton, as well as Jones and Whitney Young.

Middle school students in science class

The electricity unit in fifth grade science is one of the most popular topics for students to explore. Safety protocols due to the pandemic made studying this unit a bit different than in years past.
One thing that didn't change, however, was the student's excitement when seeing their circuits light up! Fifth graders used LED lights and batteries to learn some basic electricity concepts: open and closed circuits, conductors and insulators, series and parallel circuits, and energy conversions. The electricity unit is complemented by an online circuit builder simulation that remote learners are using alongside the in-person learners.

Lower school students presenting in a classroom

Students in fourth grade honored Women's History Month by learning about and presenting on influential and inspiring women all over the globe.

The list included Helen Keller, a disability rights activist who lost her sight and hearing at nineteen months of age; Corazon Aquino, the first female president of the Philippines; Florence Griffith Joyner, an American track and field athlete known as the fastest woman of all time; Greta Thunberg, an environmental activist; and so many more.

Student presentations featured interesting facts based on their research. For example, Mia S. '29 shared the following about Greta Thunberg:

  • Greta Thunberg is a climate change activist who is only 18 years old.
  • She was born in Stockholm, Sweden, to an opera singer and an actor.
  • Many people would not listen to her because she was young and female. She was bullied on social media.
  • She made speeches all over the world telling people to take action.
  • On July 29, 2019, she came to the USA by boat to reduce her carbon footprint.
  • In 2019, she was named Person of the Year by "Time" magazine!'
