The Caledonia/Houston/Spring Grove gymnastic team took advantage of the two-week layoff to get a little healthier. While they lost to a good La Crescent team 126.225 to 113.425 last Thursday in La Crescent, coach Jackie Johnson did report some of her injured tumblers are now back in action.
“We managed to get a few girls back from injury with the two-week break we had off from meets, Johnson noted. “But we have a few girls from JV stepping up to the varsity level to fill the open spots. That leaves us short for the JV team. We didn’t have anyone for vault on JV and competed short on all the events.
Sierra Hunter placed fifth on vault with an 8.2. Abby Hoskins and Tara Solberg tied for sixth with 7.9 scores. Erin Schultz was ninth at 7.625 and Emily Hahn 10th at 7.25.
Hunter was third on bars at 7.9, Skylar Schoh was fifth at 7.2, Tara Solberg sixth at 6.825 and Hoskins eighth at 4.575.
Hunter placed third on beam with a 7.775, Hahn was sixth at 6.65 Solberg was eighth 6.15 and Jenna Dokken ninth at 5.875.
Hunter placed fourth on floor with an 8.175, Tara Solberg was fifth at 7.9 and Abby Hoskins ninth at 6.025.
All around Hunter was third with a 32.05 and Tara Solberg fifth at 28.775.
The Lancer JV team defeated the Warriors 91.05 to 32.20.
Erin Schultz and Emily Hahn tied for third with 4.0 on bars.
Abby Hoskins was third on beam with a 5.4 and Alyssa Peterson seventh with a 3.0.
