Wilmette Gymnasts Reach Rare Heights in Park District History

The New Trier High School student and Loyola Academy student are the first gymnasts to qualify at the highest level of competition in the district.


Wilmette teenagers Clare Sullivan and Peyton Burns recently made Wilmette Park District history by becoming the first gymnasts named to “Level 10” competition, the highest level of competition in the district, Chicago Tribune reported. 

Michael Kharpak, Wilmette’s head gymnastics coach, says there are 10 levels in competitive gymnastics with 10 being the most challenging and told Chicago Tribune that he saw something special in both Sullivan and Burns when they were little girls taking part in the district’s Moms & Tots gymnastics program.
