It was absolutely awesome to see DeKalb-Sycamore Coop compete at the State level this year. It was the first time that our coop qualified the entire team to state…they have had a few individuals in the past, Meredith Whisenhunt (Syc 2014), Anita Bell (2013), Alyssa Lopez (2011 & 2012), Jessica Morreale (2011).
State Team in the picture includes:
Coaches, Andy Morreale and Gene Margiotta
Overall our team placed 7th in the State with a team total of 142.125
Aleah Leman did advance to the finals on Saturday night in all but the balance beam.
Aleah was the STATE CHAMPION on the vault with a 9.825 (it was amazing!!) and she was the floor runner-up placing 2nd with a 9.625. She got a 9.40 on bars (but did not place) and she also tied for 5th place in the all-around!
