Girls’ Gymnastics Falls To Mundelein


Logan Hanekamp

Mundelein, IL.– Last night the Girls’ Gymnastics Team competed at Mundelein in a dual meet with the Mustangs. While the team came just short of a win, this was one of team’s best scores in a few years. The Scouts finished with a score of 141.650 which was not enough to secure the win against the Mustangs who finished with a score of 145.000.

With one of the best scores in a few years, this result earned a spot on the LFHS Girls’ Gymnastics board as one of the top overall scores in school history. The top scoreboard hangs in the field house and each year the team strives to hit top scores that will make it on the board. This year the strong, young team not only made it onto the board for the overall team score, but freshman Taylor Cekay made the top scoreboard for her individual scores on both beam and bars. Cekay placed first yesterday in the uneven bars, scoring a 9.400. She also placed third on the beam with a score of 9.500. Both scores earned her a spot on the overall leaderboard for LFHS gymnastics history. Cekay was a key player for the Scouts last night and earned second in the all-around with a score of 36.750.

Alongside Cekay, sophomore Kristin Fisch also stepped up for the Scouts. Fisch placed first in vault with a score of 9.400 and fifth in the all around with a score of 36.100. With a young team this year, the Scouts have had a tremendous start, and the team looks to continue to grow throughout the rest of the season to prepare for post season.
