The Crusader 2003 Brother Rice High School 10001 South Pulaski Chicago, IL 60655




Already three years into a new millennium, and the tradition carries on. The year 2003 brings changes, as each year a new tradition starts, and each year a tradition ends. Brother Rice welcome the new freshman class and says good-bye to the seniors. But this year brought about many other changes, not only to the student body, but also to the school it elf, with various additions and updates. In 2003, Brother Rice shaped the framework of what a high school should be: A high school with strong academics, out tanding athletic teams, and a family-like atmosphere that makes any student at Brother Rice feel at home.

For the past forty-seven years, the faculty and admini tration have

haped the framework of the students academically and spiritually, instilling the school motto "Act Manfully in Christ Jesus." The freshman class of 2003 may have felt awkward or intimidated entering the halls of Brother Rice for the first time. When the time comes for these freshmen to graduate however, they will be neither awkward nor intimidated, but proud of the years they put in at Brother Rice. Thi feeling of pride is in tilled in each student by the faculty and admini tration. Teacher help hape the framework of the future leaders of our country. The motto "Act Manfully in Christ Jesus" must not only be thought of as words, but also be the ba is for the framework of our spirituality.

We must recognize that we have something special at Brother Rice.

Brother Rice is one family brought together by the pride for one's schoo!. Throughout the past forty-seven years, Brother Rice has shaped the framework of a model high chool atmosphere. Determination in academics, teamwork in sports, and ethnic diversity add to a great list of qualities pertaining to Brother Rice in the year 2003 and beyond. Brother Rice should be proud of its accomplishments for the past forty-seven years and continue to shape the framework of a great high school for years to come.

With a new director and a variety of events, Spirit Week was once again a huge success.

Spirit week hosted many festivities for the students to take part in during their lunch periods. Some of these festivities included: smash the Viking car, bungee run, sand bag competition, basketball shoot out, power shower ladder climb, and the ever famous karaoke. Mr. Sundermeier, Student Activities Director, organized all of these activities.

"What made this po sible was the huge support of the students. We couldn't have done it without the upport of everyone. The student body putting it together, faculty supporting it, and the student body actively participating made Spirit Week very successful," said Mr. Sundermeier.



The seniors, who had not won a homecoming game knew St. Laurence was going to be tough. Coach Nye told his players before the game: "There are two things we never do. We never loose our homecoming game, and we never loose to St. Laurence." The Crusaders followed these words closely, dominating their opponent the entire game. Even the explosive

iking running back Bob Brow couldn't save St. Laurence.

A combination of stellar offense led by juniors Danny ! icholson and Tom Dwyer and seniors Jim Miller and John Burns gave the Crusaders an early lead over the Vikes. Nicholson threw

6 yards for two touchdowns, while on the ground the Crusaders ru hed for 184 yards and three touchdowns. Whether passing or running the ball, the ferocious offen e could not be stopped. This dominating force was al 0 present on the other side of the ball.

Brother Rice's Tenacious Defense was led by seniors Tim Richards Marty Foley, and Matt Mikitias. Senior Dan Hennigan al 0 helped the cause with an interception turned 41-yard touchdown return. St. Laurence remained scoreless until the fourth quarter when Rice's third string came in. "The crowd really got it going; they were loud and showed great support. It was a sweet experience for the whole team," said junior defensive back Pat Harrigan after the game.

Players, fans, and alumni were all satisfied with the homecoming victory. "It was a great atmosphere to be involved in. I wa glad to see the seniors win their last homecoming," said senior Pat Kelly.

The Crusader victory topped off one of the most successful homecoming weeks ever.

rother Rice High School first opened its doors in 1956. Since then it has helped shape and define each individual who has passed through its doors.

Throughout its history, people of the Brother Rice community have used their individual gifts and talents differently to help shape and better thousands of individuals.

Each member of the Brother Rice community is different. Some members have been inducted into the Hall of Fame; some members have achieved high honors; some members have participated in extracurricular activities; and some members have been "Crusader Crazies."

Each member, however, has dedicated his/her individual gifts and talents for one goal: to shape and better Brother Rice High School.

The results of this dedication were never more evident than during the 2002-2003 school year. The Brother Rice sports teams achieved great success; extracurricular and school spirit activities were at an all time high; and academic excellence remained outstanding.

Just as the members of the Brother Rice community since 1956 have done, the members of 2002-2003 Brother Rice community have also helped shape the future of Brother Rice High School.


How does one define a Brother Rice senior? Is he the engaging student/athlete who partakes in homecoming activities, the member of an organization that is designed to aid the needy, or simply a student who has passed his classes?

On May 22, 2003, after the class of2003 spent an approximate S 1,460,600,000 in tuition,

I SOO-plus hours in detention, hundreds of hours in homework, and an incalculable amount oflife changing experience with each other, the senior class of2003 di covered the answer to that question: What is a Brother Rice Senior?

A Brother Rice senior is an individual who embodies the spirit of Brother Edmund Rice, Acts Manfully in Christ Jesus, and proudly acknowledges maroon and orange as his colors.

Through their determined attempts to live as Christians while acknowledging school spirit, the member of the senior class of2003 have provided their student body with the blueprint for achieving success. Throughout the 2002-2003 choo1 year, the senior class of2003 helped shape the framework of future Crusaders.

In a year when maturity is shown friendship becomes soLidified, and a new sense of purpose is born, this year'sjunior class began to show that they are the future leaders of tomorrow. Now comes the time to determine what course in life they will take, with graduation edging significantly closer. Although similar in some ways to sophomore year, junior year is when the morals that will lead a young man into adulthood are taught. "Junior year is important because we have to start making big choices that will affect the rest of our Lives," said Troy Martin.

Maturity begins to become a regular part of a junior's life. Respect for Life and the diversity is enshrined into this year's junior class. "You find out a Lot about yourself that you mayor may not have known duringjunior year," said Jason Fitch. Ajunior realizes that it is now time to accept his role in life which becomes the foundation for success in the future.

Friendships show a potential for lifelong bonds. Junior year is a year not only when j uniors make their friends for life, but also when they meet and understand students who they mayor may not have known. This important step leads juniors into the real world, assisting them in their social and business endeavors.

An important question on every junior's mind is, "What will I do after Brother Rice?" Junior year is the time to decide whether to attend college, join the military, or find a job. Although hectic at times, junior year is an important step in each youngman's life. With the guidance of teachers and counselors, juniors begin to realize that it is now time to accept their role in society.

This year's junior class showed that they are future leaders of tomorrow. The 2003 junior class began showing their knowledge of what it takes to become a respectable mem ber of society, I iving by the school motto "Act Manfully in Christ Jesus."

A little older and a little wiser, the class of 2005 entered the halls at the beginning of the school year ready for another dose of Brother Rice education. As freshmen, the high school envirorunent was one of confusion and adjustment, but these stately sophomores have survived their second year of gym, English, algebra, and theology.

Having left the blissful ignorance of their first year, several rewards and challenges are presented to the sophomores at Brother Rice. "The good thing about sophomore year is that you know your way around the school. Unfortunately, I can no longer blame my problems on it being my first year at Rice," said Jason Adam. A new level of commitment and maturity is expected to be models for the class of 2006.

As a student finishes his second year at Brother Rice, he is faced with yet another challenge: the future. As freshmen, ACT, GPA, and credit requirements are a foreign concept. However, as students end sophomore year, they are gi ven the task of understanding these requirements.

With this next step in growth and education for the class of2005, the students are more involved and feel at home in the halls of Brother Rice. "Now that I'm a sophomore I feel more relaxed. I know more teachers and students, and I feel like a part of the Brother Rice community," said Ryan Olinger. The class of2005 stands prouder and stronger than they bave ever before in their life. They are full of enthusiasm and anxiously await the end of the summer when they enter Brother Rice as upper-c1assmen.

On August 17,2002, three hundred and fifty freshmen entered Brother Rice to begin their high school journeys. These young men, who entered Br. Rice timid and unknown, have begun to build an honorable reputation among their peers and faculty.

Each class carries itself differently; however, every true Crusader carries "Rice Pride." "Rice Pride" is not just a catchy phrase. "Rice Pride" means partaking in actions that result in excellence.

Throughout the 2002-2003 school year, the upperclassmen and faculty have provided freshmen with the foundation to excel.

This foundation begins in the classroom. Teachers like Mr. Filan, Mr. Lietz, and Mrs. Collins have instilled in their students the knowledge and discipline needed to excel in and out of the classroom.

Although they may sound shopworn and redundent, "freshman designed" phrases like "Sugar Britches," "Come on guy," and "You wouldn't survive downtown" forever link students to Br. Rice.

During the 2002-2003 school year, the class of2006 demonstrated that they possess the potential and are willing to partake in excellence and carry on the traditions of "Rice Pride."

Many of the courses that Brother Rice offers help students find their interests and dislikes. Many of the computer courses and business courses are always filled because there is a special interest in those occupations.

Building the framework for the future starts right here at Brother Rice. Academics are a major part of life.

With the APEX Program and the Focus Program, Brother Rice is in excellent stead for the present and for the future.

With the transformation of many classrooms, Brother Rice's technology is a perfect example of the twenty-first century.

Shaping the Framework of young minds is what Brother Rice sets its goals to do. With almost fifty percent of the students on the honor roll, Brother Rice reaches its goals every day.

"English is a means of world-wide commincation. Our language reflects our history, our culture, and our dreams for the future. English is our way of trying to express verbally a true gesture of the heart. "

-Ms. Searls


English proves to be an immense subject to comprehend, let alone master. Every year, students are assigned summer reading to enhance their comprehension skills and are f greeted with a summary test when they return the opening week of school. Such novels include Of Mice and Men, The Catcher in the Rye, The Great Gatsby, and Frankenstein.

The core of the English curriculwn at Brother Rice lies in four essential parts: Literature, Vocabulary, Grammar, and Writing. Literature instills values and morals through various stories and aids readers into acquiring a feel for the story from the author's perspective and helps to unveil themes evident in all literary works. Vocabulary expands the student's word usage

I and understanding, while grammar allows the student to polish up on writing tools and style skills such as punctuation, sentence structure, and proper agreement.

Writing proves to be the most arduous and challenging aspect of any English class. While writing may come easier to some than others, the task still requires hard work and revision. "Writing and improving on your writing is invaluable," said Ms. Searls, who teaches academic and honors English IV, "to succeed in college and beyond." "The star list," devised by Ms. Searls and used by various English instructors at Brother

Rice, sets the standard for excellence by providing a comprehensive checklist dedicated to making the reader aware of errors and improving overall clarity. All of the elements leamed in English are essential to optimal performance on standardized tests and essay composition, which is an integral part of the college admission process.

Should the student feel improvement is needed, the Cainkar Computer Center is available to help evaluate a student's paper through the writer's work bench programs.

"Structure and revision are crucial to a student's success in English," said Mrs. Hall, English teacher and yearbook and newspaper moderator.

Students who excel in English may explore the literary field by enrolling in the j ownal ism course. This class offers juniors and seniors the opportunity to compose articles for the school newspaper, The Standard, and enables them to report on world events and local or school related occurrences and maintain publication deadlines. The school yearbook, The Crusader, gives writers the chance to create this historical document from scratch by allowing the students to cooperate as a whole to create a proper format and oversee production of the project from beginning to end.

"Don't let anyone steal your vision of the study of life. "


The Theology Department teaches students to "Act Manfully in Christ Jesus." During the four years that a student spends in religion classes, these words become a part of a student's life and guide the Brother Rice student in his academic and personal life. "Religion helps students better understand themselves and their faith," said Mr. Knoell.

Whether it is through the Kairos Program or through the service hours that all students must complete, the Theology Department helps the students learn how to get along with each other. They also learn how to express their faith and to affirm that faith,

The peer ministry classes offer seniors the opportunity to share their Catholic faith with their classmates and to offer Communion during school masses. Br. Ickes and Br. Collins teach the peer ministry classes.

From freshman year through senior year, religion classes instill the values of Edmund Rice in all of its students. Students learn about the diversity and values of all humans through the spiritual leadership of the religion teachers.

"The Foreign Language teachers' goals are multifaceted. First, they introduce theirs students to the sounds, vocabulary, and structure systems of the new language. Then through our extensive range of teaching methodologies, the teachers help students develops their verbal and oral proficiency and provide them with the opportunity to learn about and understand the culture of the target language."

- Mrs. Seibt


The Foreign Language Department teaches students the beauty and academic challenge of'learning a new language. Students bave a choice of taking Spanish, French or German.

All students take a mandatory two years of a language, but take up to four years if they choose. Language classes are on the academic and honors levels.

By taking a language students are given the opportunity to

how to speak, write, read, and listen to a new world. This them more diverse as they prepare a variety of projects the year, whether the project is a Spanish paper, a Latin nresentanon, or a German project.

By the end of two years, a student knows the basics ofthe !<LI'!',U"15'" they have chosen. At the end of two years, a student is ~xp>ecbed to know the basics of his chosen language and to be able speak and write in this language. If a student chooses to study a laIJgUll!5" for four years, he will have enough background to not y read and write, but also to converse in Spanish, French, or

The Foreign Language Department also provides an excellent opportunity for students to sample customs and beliefs of other nationalities. This is especially shown through the Mardi Gras celebration in February. Students bring in food of their ethnic group and share the food with all of the other language classes, as well as the faculty and staff. The sounds of music from various cultures can be heard along the Foreign Language hallway. Mardi Gras has become a fun celebration for all.

As an additional perk, students are also given the opportunity to earn college credit for their fourth year of taking a language.

In this ever changing world, a second language can and will a long way. The teachers are aware that a good background in second language can help shape the foundation of their students' Students learn the diversity of different ethnic cultures.

-Mr. Duffy

"Looking into the past will teach you to plan for the future."


With the tragic and unforgettable events of September 11 leaving many citizens scratching their heads in anger and astonishment, one must ask how this could have happened. The Social Studies Department attempts to answer this question and others by delving into the past to examine thoroughly the accomplishments and mistakes of ancient civilizations, to analyze the occurrences of today, and to project and prevent some of the possible outcomes of the future.

Students have to complete two required credits of social studies, world and U.S. history. World history focuses more on global events, while U.S. history explains the beginnings of this country and how the United States functions. Once both are completed, students can sign up for a myriad of electives, which include criminal/civil law, business waw, WW II to present, and Vietnam War. With a knowledgeable staff of instructors headed by Mr. Duffy, they present the information in interesting and involving ways to encourage class discussion and presentations of historical films. "Now more than ever, students need to know what is happening in the world they live in and why," said Mr. Duffy, department chairperson.

"tn today's technological society, an understanding of and appreciation for mathematics is essential. We, as a school and as a department, would be remiss if we did not offer students the most math

~ they can handle and challenge them every step of the way."

- Mr. Augustyn


Brother Rice has one of the greatest math programs in the city of Chicago. Many students excel in math and participate in the math club.

The math club has done well over the years, and this year was no different. Under the leadership ofBr. Martin and Mr. Lazaroff, the math club won many contests.

With new technologies math is becoming easier by the day.

New systems and programs for calculators that help students with problems make it easier for students in their math quest. They all know, however, they will not always have calculators. They know they have to succeed in math if they want to excel in the real world.

Teachers are always available to help the students if they are needed. Students know it is not easy for the teachers to teach them everything they can, while continuing to make sure each student learns it correctly. Math teachers spend extra time outside of class to insure that their students learn the subject.

Math can be fun too. From Brother Martin taking his students outside for a class to Mr. Augustyn having the students do group work, and Mrs. Lucheon's M & M project, learning becomes fun. These projects enhance the more structured aspects

of math classes.

The Math Department helps students on all levels.

Academic, honor andA.P. calculus insure that Brother Rice students are given every opportunity to excel in math.

With helpful teachers and energetic students, the math program at Brother Rice is at its best. The tradition of the math program will always be about students having the opportunity to build an excellent foundation for the academic and professional endeavors that they will pursue after high school.

"The Science Department at Brother Rice challenges students to solve real

roblems by showing them the intricacies of the world around them. In the past seven years, Brother Rice 'has updated and upgraded its equipment so students are well prepared for a

ossible career in science." - Sr. Hayes


Led by Br. Hayes, Br. Toole, Mr. Molenda, Mr. Stiglic, Mr. Markulin, Mr. Dombkowski, and Mr. Mathius, the Science Department helps students explore the physical realm of the world they live in through hands on experiments, explosive demonstrations, and field trips to various scientific destinations.

Freshmen and sophomores delve into the insides offrogs and intracellular activity. They discuss topics ranging from Darwin's theory of Evolution to mitochondria. Mr. Mathius, Mr. Stiglic, Mr. Dombkowski, and Mr. Markulin engage the young Crusaders in the wondrous biological world using interactive techniques and great technology.

As the young scientists develop into sophomores and juniors, they explore their world with a great map known as the periodic table with their tour guides, Mr. Molenda, Br. Toole, and in A.P. class with Br. Collins. Students also apply their math skills when computing atomic masses and numbers in their chemistry classes.

The Science Department bas the ability to bring everything to full circle. More times than not, you'll find the physics students launching water balloons on the football field, or in the hall ways guiding model cars through the school. By having the latest

equipment they can break up vectors, find velocity, and measure various differences.

Some students, later on in their scientific career, have the opportunity to take anatomy, A.P. Chemistry, or earth science. The students in earth science study the physical world around them, discussing volcanoes and rocks with Mr. Hackett. The A.P. Chemistry students exercise their mental muscle and attempt to receive college credit while in high school. The anatomy students delve into the human body and its functions in the greatest detail.

Through the Science Department's efforts students have the foundation started to what they can accomplish in life. The great technology leaves the scientific world at their fingertips.

"Band often goes unthanked and unrecognized, but the countless hours we put in each year help better the school."

-Dan O'Brien


Music is an extremely demanding course. In addition to playing in the concert band and performing in the marching band, students also perfect their craft academically and musically in the classroom.

Under the instruction of Mr. Schultz and Mr. Henning, students spend a period a day enhancing their craft. Music students take seven or eight classes, often eating their lunches on the run.

This instruction in the classroom sees its culmination in excellence. This award winning band begins practice in the late summer and continues on into the school year, with performances and competitions.

Students from Brother Rice, Mother McCauley, and St. Laurence perform at football games and other school events, including the Christmas Mass concert before the student body. These students team up for competition band, but they specialize in marching. In addition, there is a jazz band, concert band, and symphonic band.
