The Gymnastics team competed in back to back meets over the Martin Luther King Weekend. First at Dublin HS in the Columbus area on Saturday, and then at Gem City Gymnastics for the Northmont HS Invitational on Monday. This was a big challenge for the team as our best gymnast, Sydney Currier, was suffering a mild injury and restricted from participating or practicing. She returns to the lineup this Saturday as we travel again to Columbus for the Worthington Kilbourne HS Invitational and staying for the Wonen’s OSU v Iwoa and Men’s OSU v Illinois combined Gymnastics Meet. Hannah Federinko was injured at the Dublin Meet, so whe missed the Northmont meet, but is expected to be OK within a few weeks.
As a result of Sydney absence from the lineup at Dublin the team scores were lower, but did 2 pts better than the coaches thought we would. Northmont, however we struggled with both Sydney and Hannah absent. The reason we did better than expected at Dublin was due to the team stepping up of their efforts and performing better. Macey Bradam debuted her new Floor routine with a career high score (7.2). Olivia Moser and Jade Delaney added a layout half twist to their routines on floor and a double salto (flip) pass. Our secret weapons Christina Kallet and Sonja Kosir continue to improve. Dana Powers had the team and her highest All Around score (31.9). Dana also had her best score on floor this year (8.0) and Vault (8.125.
