The ETHS boys gymnastics team lost their meet against Niles West on April 3, 142.4 to 115, but skill levels are growing as confidence grows within the team, said head gymnastics coach Chester Jones.

Ben Morton led the Evanston team with 40.8 points, scoring in the top five positions in all six events: floor exercise, pommel horse, still rings, vault, parallel bars and horizontal bar. Jonathan Silencieux and Alassane Diop placed second and third respectively.
