Carmel, Conant and Lake Park earn at-large state berths
Feb 9, 2017 9:43 PM -
This year, instead of eight teams competing in the girls gymnastics state finals, there will be nine. In addition to sectional champions Prairie Ridge, DeKalb, Glenbrook South and Lincoln-Way East, there will be five at-large team qualifiers to next weekend's festivities to be hosted by Palatine. That's because Lake Park and Conant -- who competed in different sectional meets -- tied for the fourth-best at-large qualifying score. The IHSA's girls gymnastics rules specify that teams which tie for that position both advance to state.
