Girls Dab at SWIM on Feb 12th

The Spartans do a Dab

The Girls Gymnastics team participated in the Southwest Individual Meet on Sunday February 12th at Miamisburg High School. While there is no team score at this meet, it is an opportunity for the ladies to have a chance to reach their personal goals.

 

It is a meet for the individuals that have not scored typically more than one eight or not competed in an event. The twist to this year meet was each gymnast was challenged to add a dab to each routine they performed. If they accomplished this, they received a bonus .1 of a point to their score.

Competitors for each event were:

Vault was led by Amber Russell and Polina Elagin with Leah Roodhouse back in the mix after sitting out for a few weeks. Serra Tuzun, Maria Bushman and Olivia Meagher also competed.

Bars led by Brittany Gardner, followed by Katie Lambert, Serra Tuzun, Gretchen Watkins, Amber and Olivia.

Beam saw Senior Katie Lambert competing for the first time ever in her 4 years to score a solid score. Amber hit a routine for a season high of 8.15 to finish 4th Additional routines were performed by Maria, Olivia, Serra and Geena Marcon.

Floor is where Polina nailed a season high routine followed closely by Olivia and Serra who also scored in the 8's. Also competing were Maria and Geena.

Olivia competed all around for the first time this season.

The team will compete in the City Championships on Saturday February 18th at 4pm. Go Spartans.
