  • Mundelein’s Kehr comes through, wins parallel bars Feb 9, 2015 11:14 PM
    McKenzie Kehr had a painful memory from a year ago, one that spoiled her chance at a spot in the state meet. The Mundelein senior wasn’t going to let history repeat in Monday night’s Mundelein girls gymnastics sectional. So, Kehr, as the final performer on the uneven parallel bars, chalked up the best routine of the meet, a 9.45 that qualified her to the state meet at Palatine on Feb. 20. “I really didn’t want a repeat of last year,” Kehr said. “I just gave it my all. I actually tore my fingernail off in the middle of it and kind of stopped. This time, I was luckier. I was just pumped up with the team and wanted to make it there (to state), with the team.” Kehr was the runner-up in the all-around at 37.325 in addition to taking second on vault (9.55) and fifth on beam (8.925). As a team, Mundelein will have to wait and see if it will quality to state with an at-large berth, as the Mustangs finished behind sectional champion Glenbrook South (142.625). Mundelein (141.325) was second and Carmel Catholic third (141.125).

  • Zurlo, Hersey a big hit as Prairie Ridge rolls to regional title Feb 5, 2015 11:45 PM
    Hersey’s girls gymnastics team and junior Alysa Zurlo made the most of their last chance on Thursday night while performing in their own regional meet. With an at-large berth at the Lake Park sectional on the line, the Huskies needed a big beam series in its last rotation. Zurlo delivered. She took second place on the beam (with a 9.2). That performance along with her teammates’ propelled Hersey to a third-place finish with 138.925 points. More importantly, the Huskies edged out Schaumburg for the final at-large bid in the Lake Park sectional by a mere .450 points.

  • Commanding performance from young Carmel Feb 4, 2015 11:09 PM
    Carmel Catholic’s girls gymnastics team is growing up quickly. Despite their youth, the Corsairs won their 13th regional championship in a row Wednesday night, as they posted a 142.625 at Stevenson. The host Patriots finished second with a 134.425, followed by Libertyville (128.475) and Vernon Hills (107.45). Stevenson’s Elizabeth Shank won the all-around with 37.4, while Lake Zurich had its first gymnast competing in more than a decade, and freshman Emily McGuckin acquitted herself well. Carmel freshman Kelly Gustafson earned medals with a third on vault (9.15) and fourth on the floor (9.125). She also could qualify at-large in other events.

  • Lee, Barrington persevere to win regional Feb 4, 2015 11:01 PM
    Barrington senior Jessica Lee has certainly had her share of injuries and illnesses during her four years. A left elbow injury interupted her freshman season. Her sophomore season ended with a torn ACL, and mono slowed her junior season. This year, she has grinded through a torn meniscus that she will require surgery on after the season. But Lee was able to erase four years of frustration on Wednesday night at the Barrington girls gymnastics regional, combining with junior Abby Hasanov to lead the host Fillies to the regional title with an impressive 146.125.

  • Freshmen shine in Geneva’s regional win Feb 4, 2015 10:13 PM
    Having first names that end in ‘y’ is not the only thing that Geneva’s five freshmen have in common. They’re also very, very good. Debuting in their first regional at Geneva on Wednesday, they combined to chip in with five counting scores as the Vikings cruised to victory with 146.425 points, easily surpassing the 130.85 tallied by U-46 co-op.

  • Shanahan, Mundelein claim regional championship Feb 3, 2015 10:58 PM
    Taylor Shanahan is finding out that being on Mundelein’s girls gymnastics team was a good move to make in her sophomore year after spending the previous year as a Mustangs cheerleader. She still gets to cheer a bit — for her team, as it’s been concentrating on taking a successful next step in the state series. For the second straight year, Mundelein is a regional champion. The Mustangs scored 142.275 to edge Warren (121.1) i nthe regional hosted by Mundelein on Tuesday. Niles West finished at 134.2 and Evanston 124.6.

  • Fremd pulls together, claims regional crown Feb 3, 2015 10:25 PM
    It wasn’t an easy night for Fremd’s girls gymnastics team at the Tuesday night regional the Vikings hosted. The scores got a bit tighter and there were a few slips and falls, but in the end the host Vikings were able to hold it together in claiming their 23rd consecutive regional title with 144.775 points in Palatine. Fremd overcame three falls on bars and three more on beam in advancing to the Lake Park sectional at 6 p.m. Monday. Conant (133.475 points) nipped Palatine (133.20) for second, with Maine West (115.60) taking fourth place. “Obviously it would have been nice to be a little more consistent,” said Fremd coach Elise Ference. “But tonight we showed our fight when things were not going well, and they have shown that all season.”
