"We did not win, but all of the girls, both varsity and JV, had their best meet of the season on almost every event," coach Jeanne Kasel said. "We were short a varsity girl, so we only competed four girls on three of our four events. We were also missing a few of our JV girls as well."

Taylor Engstrom led the team on vault with an 8.5. Jordyn Hollar and Morgan Johnson each had 8.4s.

On bars, Ali Kromer led the team with a 7.6. Hollar had a 7.4.

Kromer finished with a team-high on beam, too, with an 8.55. Hollar had an 8.25 and Engstrom had an 8.15.

"(They) all struck their routines nicely," Kasel said.

On floor, Engstrom had a season-high score of 8.675 and Kromer had an 8.45.

Engstrom placed third on floor and Kromer was second on beam and third in the all-around with a score of 32.95.

Engstrom was fourth in the all-around and Hollar was fifth.

Dani Walz moved up to varsity to compete on vault and scored an 8.15 with "a very impressive vault," Kasel said.

Madison Hynnek had a 7.6, her season high.

"Our JV team is building and working hard to achieve a full roster of gymnasts for each event," Kasel said. "Our goal is compete on all four events with a full roster, with is six to eight girls on each event. The goal has been met on beam, and we are getting close on vault and floor as well."
