Boys gymnastics will compete at the state finals May 11 starting at 5:30 at Hoffman Estates High School.

They competed in the IHSA sectionals at Wheaton Warrenville South Wednesday May 2.

The boys placed third overall with a score of 147.25 behind Wheaton Warrenville South and Niles West. The team advanced three boys onto the state meet, junior Matt Bednar, sophomore Garrett Naughton, and senior Justin Loeung.

Bednar advanced in the pommel horse and high bar by placing fifth with a 8.35 in pommel horse and third with a 8.35 in high bar.  He also advanced at-large in the parallel bars.

“I have put in the work and my coaches have been my greatest motivators. I can’t wait to compete at state next week,” Bednar said.

Teammate Naughton also had an impressive performance at sectionals. He placed in four sectional events: pommel horse, vault, parallel bars, and high bar. Naughton was second in pommel horse with a 8.75, second in vault with a 9.3, third in parallel bars with a 9.1, and sectional champ in high bar with a 9.2.  He also advanced at-large in the all-around and floor exercise.

Loeung advanced at-large on vault with a score of 8.8000.

“These boys have put in the work and they deserve everything they have worked for. I am so proud to be their teammate,” senior Tyler Harris said.
