Illinois Congratulates Mackenzie Caquatto and Bridgey Caquatto. They are now officially International Elites. Both have qualified to Classic to be held in Houston. As Mackenzie is age eligible, she will be entering the 1st Classics (both classics are held in Houston in the same week) to attempt to qualify for Pan Am selection and qualify to Championships of the USA in San Jose. Bridgey will only be attempting to qualify for championships as she is too young for Pan Am's. Both represented themselves and Illinois in fine fashion.
Congratulations goes to Bobbie Montanari the New Regional Chairman. We would like to thank Kathy Koeth Shufflin for her great leadership and dedication to making Region 5 the success that it now is. We appreciate all that you have done.
