The Warrior gymnasts hosted Pine Island for a very close meet  on Thursday, Jan. 19. The team totals were separated by only 1.325 with Pine Island coming out on top with 115.975 to Caledonia-Spring Grove 114.650. It was parents’ night as well as senior night. Seniors are Heather Solberg, Mariah Stone, Alyssa Meyer and Jenna Dokken.

Coach Jackie Johnson said that they have everyone back on varsity except Kaylee Cavanaugh. “Abby Hoskins is still feeling the pain from her injury earlier in the season and was to compete all four events but we did pull her from floor that night. She is still having some pain in her ankle and we decided to give her a few extra days to get healthy for our next meet away with Byron this coming Thursday. Our main focus right now is to get everyone healthy and finish the season strong,” said Johnson.
