Date: Jan. 31 

The Final Score: ; 2. Mundelein, 141.5; 3. Glenbrook South 133.2; 4. Glenbrook North, 129.675 

Scouts Top Performer: Kat McKeon placed first in the all-around with 37.325 while teammates Brittany Moccia took fourth at 36.3 and Kylie Carlson fifth with 36.175. McKeon Placed first on the uneven parallel bars (9.475), second on balance beam (9.325), fourth on floor exercise (9.25) and fifth in vault (9.275).

Who’s Next: Niles North Sectional. The winners of the first five places in each individual event and the first five places in the All-Around sectional competition shall advance as "Ranked Qualifiers."  In addition, the twelve (12) best scorers in each individual event and in the All-Around competition from among all competitors in the sectionals in the event(s) who did not finish among the top five (5) shall also advance as "At Large Qualifiers."

The Bottom Line: The Scouts will be hard-pressed to win the Nile s North Sectional swith the likes of Stevenson and defending State champ Carmel in the field. However, a high enouigh score could be enough to give Lake Forest an at-large bnerth as a team. Individually, the same two schools, Stevenson and Carmel, plus Mundelein and Vernon Hills could make the competition just as tough to qualify for State.
