Brinkworth All-Star Meet flier


The DuPage Valley Conference team won the first John Brinkworth All-Star Meet championship, and the attendent bragging rights, Saturday at Niles North.

The DVC scored 167.15 for a comfortable victory over the runners-up, representing the Independents Conference (158.06). The Mid-Suburban League West Division gymnasts nipped their counterparts from the Central Suburban League, 156.25-156.23 for third.

The Mid-Suburban League East Division recorded a strong fourth-place score of 155.375. The West Suburban Silver (149.87), West Suburban Gold (137.80) and Southwest Suburban (114.55) rounded out the conference team standings.

The team standings were built on several outstanding individual performances, led by a remarkable 9.95 on still rings from Mike Wilner of Stevenson which benefitted the Independents.

Mike Brackmann delivered a 9.80 on horizontal bar, which earned first place over a 9.60 from Wheaton Warrenville co-op teammate Darren Fill.

Fill (9.55) led a DVC sweep of the top three places in floor exercise. Ryan Kennedy of Glenbard North had a 9.50 and Josh Soto of Naperville North added a 9.45.

The DVC received another event championship from Dave Rynearson of Naperville Central. Rynearson drew a 9.40 in vaulting.

The Independents' Craig Breckenridge of Libertyville took first in pommel horse (9.50).

The Central Suburban League had a parallel bars winner, Robbie Brown of Highland Park/Deerfield co-op (9.50).

There was no formal all-around competition and no all-around championship was awarded.

If there had been, Fill would have taken first with what SGS believes is a career-best 56.30. Independents Wilner (55.10) and Breckenridge (55.0) had the next-highest, six-event totals. Kennedy and Palatine's Damian Przystal of the MSL West, contributed 54.95 and 53.00 points to their respective teams.
