The girls will compete in Assembly Hall at Champaign. No time as been announced yet.” Members of the team include Cayla Walsh, Laurel Whitford, Aly Smith, Cheyenne Grant-Witt, Sara Eagles, Jazmine Toribio, Rebecca Underwood, Bethany Nelson, Hanna Swanson, Dana Brock, Emily Peterson and Tayler Hein.
