This past weekend, 20 Skinner North students participated in the Illinois All Grades tournament. Congratulations to Mark E on his first tournament with the team and to Toby B, Nikolas L, Aliana R, Keaney R and Emily W on their first rated tournaments.
Our children participated in every grade from K-7. We earned team trophies in each grade where we had a full team. In kindergarten, Toby B earned a 3rd place individual trophy. In 3rd grade, the team of Grant L, Andrew X and Cedric Z earned the 3rd place team trophy and Andrew earned 7th place as an individual. Additionally, each boy saw more than a 100 point ratings increase! Our 4th grade team of Andy C, Sid M and Keaney R also earned a 3rd place team trophy and Andy earned 4th as an individual. Our 5th grade team of Mitchell A, Zack A, Elaine C, Nikolas L, and Niccolo L earned the 2nd place team trophy. Niccolo just missed an individual trophy and earned a ratings increase of more than 200 points! In 7th grade, Jack H earned 4th place as an individual.
Congratulations to all who participated in the most important single day scholastic K-8 tournament in Illinois.
The Skinner North Boys 7th/8th Soccer Team played their final game of the season this past weekend and gave a strong effort trying to defend their 2nd place standing, hoping to earn a spot in the City Championships. Our boys did a great job holding off many offensive attacks by their Goudy opponents, resulting in a tied score of 0-0 at half time. Unfortunately, despite their best efforts, our Skinner Team ultimately fell to Goudy with a final score of 4-0. Despite the loss, our team should be very proud of the great teamwork, sportsmanship and grit they displayed throughout the entire season.
Thank you to the parents and teachers who came out to support & cheer on our boys on Saturday! Congrats to our Skinner North Boys 7th/8th Soccer Team on an exciting & fun season! And a special THANK YOU to Coach Natalie Machado for being such a positive & supportive mentor to our team!
