On March 28th, CICS Wrightwood scholar Cyrus M. competed in the Illinois State Gymnastics competition. Among 25 other students in his level, Cyrus placed 1st All Around, as well as 1st in the High Bar and Parallel Bar events.  His all around score was the highest in the competition for all Level 9 young men (ages 13 to 18). 

Cyrus's mother Jacqueline writes that,  "This was a tough competition with many talented young men.  This season has been and still is challenging for Cyrus due to his fast growth spurt and growing pains, but he continues to work hard!"

Cyrus is now qualified to compete in the regional competition which occurs this month. We wish him the best of luck and are proud of his accomplishments thus far!
