Spartans started off the new year with an 8-point team score jump from their first meet at the Oak Hills Invitational on January 8th.

Senior Polina Elagin scored one of her best career scores an 8.4 to place 7th on beam

Senior Brittany Gardner returns for her first meet of the season with a solid routine on bars. Senior Katie Lambert improved her scores on her 3 events: bars, floor and vault. Junior Gretchen Watkins brought up her bar score by .9 and continues to contribute to the team score.

Sophomore Maria Bushman improved on score by 1 point. Freshman Olivia Meagher is showing the rewards of practice as her scores on her 3 events have steadily increased with the beam score jumping up by 1.3 points. Freshman Leah Roodhouse increased her vault score and competed on floor for the first time. Freshman Amber Russell brought up her floor score by 1 point as well as her bar score. Freshman Serra Tuzun broke into the 30's on her all-around score with higher scores on every event yet the 1.5 points on floor was her highest leap.

We hope all the gymnastics continue to see jumps in their scores! Go Turpin Spartans.
