"This was another night of awesome routines and performances," coach Sue Thelen said. "Both our JV and varsity continue to gain new skills and are improving daily. It is amazing to see their hard work pay off for them."

Becky Ofert had a great all-around performance, taking home first place in both the bar routine and the floor routine. She also earned a third place finish in the vault and second place on the beam.

Mallory Stier earned second place in the vault competition followed not far behind by Sarah Dolans in fifth place.

On the bars Jeannette Tram threw in a new cut away kip variation to give her a score of 7.15 and a third-place tie. Jamie Lorentz also earned a fifth place tie on the bars.
