I just played a game against Hoffman Estates High School at 8th board. How could I have played better? I was white.
17. Rc6 wins the queen with a discovered/reveal check on the black king
you put yourself in a lot of good positions, but didn't take advantage tactically. You gave away a lot of pieces as well...
Focus on looking at your opponent's threats and doing a "blunder-check" after everymove to make sure you are not hanging pieces. This mainly will come with experience.
I would also recommend reviewing opening principles such as not moving the same piece twice, castling quickly, etc.
