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).

The State Team in the picture includes:
Zoe Cole (Syc), Emily Javonovich, Ali Morreale, Aleah Leman, Nitsa Matarangas, Katelyn Nelson (Syc)

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!
