I have attached the results from the Wheaton Warrenville South meet. As a total team, we placed 3rd out of the 5 teams competing. With it being our first meet of the season, the coaches and I were very impressed with the determination, the grit, and the great teamwork that our team showed throughout every event.

Plainfield South Invitational:
We will NOT be attending the Plainfield South Invitational this year. We are disappointed at the loss of a meet but will look forward to the next all-comers' meet on March 7 at Plainfield East High School.
Please remember to always communicate a missed practice or meet. Email is the best way to get in touch with the coaches. Lack of communication for missed practices could result in a non-participation at the next meet.
Thank you for all your support of your girls. The coaches and I look forward to saying hello and introducing ourselves at the next meet.
