It’s the first crosstown classic of the year for boys gymnastics as the Huskies of Naperville North host their crosstown rival Naperville Central Redhawks on senior night. Both teams feature plenty of returning talent and have gotten off to a strong start to the spring season. This highlight is sponsored by BMO Harris Bank.

Huskie senior Kai Goodrich gets the meet started on the Pommel Horse, and he maintains steady movement around the apparatus to score high points early.

Next is Redhawks gymnast Tim Engman on the floor as he gets air on this passing and sticks the landing for the finish. Scoring in at an 8.1 for the event.

Brady Bechtel from Naperville Central takes on the rings as he’s able to stabilize himself to nail the dismount, and the landing earns the highest score in the event.

Declan Smith its junior leads the Huskies with a strong performance on the bars here, guiding his body to almost a perfect finish.

Next is last year’s state qualifier and senior Avi Sharon as he leads himself nicely into his dismount and propels himself upward to stick the landing for the blue and orange.

Tim Engman, though, would have an outstanding performance on the parallel bars as he thrusts himself back to gain enough momentum to hold his handstand. He then executes a backflip and sticks the landing to earn high marks for the event.

The Huskies end the meet with the two highest points leaders, defeating rival Naperville Central to win the boys gymnastics meet by a score of 141.8 to 122.2. Naperville North continues its strong start to the season with more tough matchups on the horizon.
