Cole Schreiber, a sixth-grader at Timber Ridge Middle School, won the gold medal in still rings at the recent Men’s Junior Olympic National Gymnastics Championships in Portland, Ore.
Schreiber, representing Premier West Gymnastics of Oswego, finished first in the state meet at DuPage Expo in St. Charles to qualify for nationals. He has turned 12, but was eligible to compete in the 11-year-old division.
All the entrants competed in all six events in one day. The top 24 in each advanced to the finals. In addition to winning the still rings title, Schreiber was 18th in floor exercise, 20th in the pommel horse and 23rd in vault. He did not make the top 24 in the high bar or parallel bars.
Sophomore outfielder Kayla Borgra (Joliet Catholic) helped the Lake Forest College softball team to the South Division championship and was an All-Midwest Conference first-team selection.
Borgra hit .417 with a .477 on-base percentage. She had eight doubles among her 40 hits. Her batting average and hits ranked sixth in the conference and her on-base percentage was fifth.
Lewis senior center fielder Jayme Hefler was a first-team selection for the fourth consecutive year on the NCAA Division II All-Midwest Region softball team.
Hefler’s teammate, senior shortstop Michelle Vucsko, was a second-team pick.
The Joliet Central and Joliet West athletic facilities received recognition in the latest edition of Coach and Athletic Director magazine. The magazine’s feature highlighted the Central and West field house and athletic turf.
