Gymnastics looks to build on last year’s strong finish


Last season, the GBS Girls Gymnastics team appeared in their first sectional since 2004. Despite graduating key members, the team is now confident they can be better and hopefully advance farther than sectionals, according to head coach Steve Gale. 

Currently, the girls are 4-0 after placing first at the Glenbrook North invite with a score of 139.3, beating CSL rival, New Trier.

According to senior captain Kaci Castino her favorite accomplishment of the season so far was bringing home the championship trophy from the GBN Invite.

“New Trier is a big rival of ours so it was extremely rewarding as a team to outscore them,” Castino said.

The team also won their meet versus Evanston with a total of 140 points. So far, the girls are undefeated and hope to keep it that way, according to Castino.

Last season, sophomore Hannah Hartley won the all-around, vault, beam and floor at the CSL South meet and also helped GBS win its first regional since 2001. She also attended last year’s state meet.

“[They are] more rounded gymnasts, so I feel like they are going to bring a higher skill level to all of us and they are going to push us more,” Hartley said.

According to Gale the team will start off without Hartley due to a stress fracture on her fibula. Gale believes that Hartley is the team’s top-all around gymnast, and she is  currently working on her bars routine.

“We are going to be down a tad with that, but I would like to beat everyone,” Gale said. “I would hope we would come out on top and perform well.”

This season, the team features two freshmen, Bebe Haramaras and Kiley Kruger. The team is also led by Castino,   according to Hartley.
