Girls gymnastics is gearing up for their performances at the Hoffman Estates sectional tonight. Senior Mackenzie Kamysz and freshman Annika Szyniec advanced to IHSA sectionals after their performances at the regional last week in which they hosted.

“I am very excited for sectionals this year and hope to make it to state in my final gymnastics season,” Kamysz said.

Kamysz has made it to state all of her years and is hoping for a strong performance to make it to state for a fourth time.

Szyniec, being a freshman, is excited for her first appearance at sectionals and is just hoping to do her best.

At regionals, Kamysz placed fifth in vault and all around, fourth in uneven bars, and third on the floor exercise, advancing to sectionals in those events. Szyniec did not place in her events but advanced to sectionals in all around and bars at large.

The team placed third at regionals behind Buffalo Grove and Prarie Ridge. Although only two members of their team advanced to sectionals they were still happy with their performances.

“We had a very young team this year after losing a majority of our team after last season, so I am proud of how we finished as a team this season,” Kamysz said.

The sectional meet will start at 6 tonight at Hoffman Estates High School.
