Hwy. 17 Ortonville, MN 56278 Reck Solid Since 1876 Big Stone City, South Dakota 57216 605-862-8143 Ortonville/CGB gymnastics team, competes at Benson The Ortonville/CGB gymnastics junior varsity and varsity teams com- pleted the first haft of the season with an away dual against the Benson Braves on Tuesday, Dec. 20. The Braves scored a 124 to Or- tonville's 108.75. The team gained four points since the previous Saturday's meet and the coaches were pleased with this score since Kirsten Giese is out injured and Hannah Eustice was battling the flu. The athletes came away with many seasonal best scores or personal bests at this meet. The meet was rushed as a bus breakdown, which put the team into quick warm-ups without much stretch time. This delay did not affect the gynmasts, as they came on strong on three events. Many vaulters hit season highs at this meet. Rachel Berger scored an 8.55 for second place on a tight bodied twisting vault. I(ersten Cooper cleaned up a pike in her pre-flight on vault and scored an 8.25 for a personal best and fifth place. Destiny Eastman has looked stronger on vault and also hit a personal best of 8.1. Other vault scores were Eliza Aul and Kaitlyn Kottke at 7.9. Both these gymnasts are new to vault, so these are nice scores for a clean handspring. The team had an exceptional round on floor exercise as they all hit their tumble passes. Rachel Berger scored a 7.7 for fifth place. Hannah Eustice fought through the flu to hit a personal best of 6.95. Other floor scores were Kersten Cooper at 7.275, Kaitlyn Kot- tke 7.0 and ShaRaye Redfield with a 6.5. Balance beam gymnasts put to- gether great scores even though they had a few falls. They showed such .grace and confidence on this event that it helped raise the scores. Rachel Berger hit a 7.3 for third place, Hannah Eustice a 7.15 for fourth place and Kaitlyn Kottke a 7.0 for fifth place. Normally Benson dominates all places on beam, so it was so nice to see the Trojans hold their own on this event. Kersten Cooper also competed and scored a 5.6. The uneven bars are improving as the season progresses, but the athletes still had to many breaks and execution errors to hold scores low. Rachel ~Berger scored a 5.75, Destiny Eastman a 5.5 and Kersten Cooper a 5.25. In all around, Rachel Berger scored a 29.3 for fifth place and Kersten Cooper scored a 26.175. The B-squad scored an 81.6 to Ben- son's 104.5. Four athletes placed in the competition. ShaRaye Redfield placed third on vault and beam, and placed fourth on uneven bars. Jessaline Backer placed second on all around, while teammates Mackenzie Streich was fifth on beam and Desiree Raffety was fifth on bars. The team has a much needed two week break before their next meet on Jan. 7 in Sisseton, SD. The team had six meets in 14 days prior to Christmas, which has left little time to get some practice on the equipment. "We are setting the athletes some higher individual and team goals to ac- complish over the break so the team can score at least a 115," said Coach Becky Holtquist. GYMNAST OF THE WEEK goes to juniorHannah Eustice. She competed while nursing the flu at the Benson meet and hit a personal best on floor of 6.95 and placed fourth on beam with a 7.15. Hannah grows stronger daily as the season progresses.
