Lincoln-Way co-op gymnasts Grace Kmak and Korina Jarosz are used to battling each other for championships, like they did for the all-around title at the Lincoln-Way Regional on Feb. 4 at Lincoln-Way East.

For the duo, competition and teamwork are not mutually exclusive. While they both go hard for the top of the podium, they also help push each other.

“It helps a lot,” said Jarosz, a senior. “We’re normally right next to each other when we compete. When one of us goes up and hits, then the other wants to go up and hit. It’s a bond we have.”
