Conant was looking for a lift at its own regional on Thursday night, and the Cougars got one from senior Sarah Starzynski. Starzynski missed over a month due to a broken wrist, but the Cougar senior didn’t miss much on Thursday. Limited to two events, Starzynski made the most of them, taking third on the beam (9.025) and tying for sixth on the bars (8.925) in leading the Cougars to a second-place finish with 139.0 points in Hoffman Estates. Conant advanced to the Fremd sectional on Monday night at 6:30 p.m by securing the second at-large bid. Sophomore Rachael Underwood (37.60) and sophomore Riley Mahoney (37.225) went 1-2 in the all-around in propelling Prairie Ridge co-op to the regional title with an impressive 147.175.
