Jacob Van Surksum Performs in Omega Psi Phi’s Talent Hunt Competition

North Chicago High School’s very own Jacob Van Surksum performs his rendition of Sonata #2 by George Frideric Handel.
He learned and MEMORIZED all of this music in less than a month for the Omega Psi Phi’s Talent Hunt competition at Lake County College. The competition is adjudicating his performance this coming week and we will know his results on the 27th.  We could not be more proud of how much he has done in such a short amount of time.

Warhawks Remember Mr. Rufus Woods

Warhawks fondly remember Mr. Rufus Woods, a 1967 graduate of NCCHS, who passed away over Winter Break. Mr. Woods was an amazing athlete. In his senior year, he was named to the All-State Basketball Squad. He will be always remembered for hitting one of the greatest shots in IHSA basketball tournament history, when he fired an off-balance, high-arching buzzer-beater from the sidelines to beat Waukegan 43-42 in the 1966 Regional Championship game at NCCHS.
