The boys gymnastics team will be competing at an away meet on Friday, March 9 at 6 p.m. against Lyons Township High School (LT). LT has a reputation for being Central’s biggest competition in terms of athletics, so the boys have been practicing hard in preparation for this meet.

“LT is our biggest rival. The meets are always so hype, and it’s always fun to compete against them,” said Alex Roca, senior and varsity gymnast. “I have been working hard in practice to compete my double backflip on the floor; I’m not sure if it will be ready for competition by this Friday though.”

The boys practice every day after school until 5:30 p.m. They compete in a variety of different events, including pommel horse, rings, parallel bars, floor, and the vault.

In addition to practicing hard every day, the boys used the Red vs. White meet on Feb. 23 as preparation before they face LT.

“I love the atmosphere at the LT meet; it’s so intense. It always gives us the adrenaline boost we need to make us perform well,” said Nicky Armonda, junior and varsity team member. “We always wear our gymnastics jackets or we dress nicely before a meet to get us ready to compete.”

Last year, the boys gymnastics team lost against LT, but this year they are hoping to bring home the win.

“I’m so hyped to compete against LT,” said Eric Miscimarra, junior and varsity gymnast. “My favorite event to compete in is floor, and I recently got my back flip one full twist on floor, which I am really excited to compete with on Friday.”

The meet begins at 6 p.m. in the main gym of LT’s south campus, and the boys hope to see the stands filled with red and white.
