The gymnastics team had an incredible season and finished twelfth in the state

This year’s gymnastics team had a great all-around season. Starting and ending on high notes, the team has a lot to be proud of and a lot to look forward to next year.

The season started with a match facing off against multiple opponents at Rockford High School, where the girls placed high against the opposing teams. They would return to Rockford the following week, where they would fall in a very close match.

Early on in the season, success in conference play was the goal. However, as the season continued to progress, the girls’ goals broadened to regional and state competitions.

The team’s next challenge would be Lowell and Kenowa Hills. The team finished with a much-needed win over Kenowa Hills, but sadly for the Rangers, they fell to Lowell in another close match.

As the season continued to progress, the team began participating in many more multiple-opponent meets. The team used these meets to focus on themselves to prepare for conference play.

On February 16, the team finally made it to conferences. After spending the entire season preparing for this meet, they didn’t disappoint. The team scored its highest rating the entire season with a score of 139.5 and placed third overall.

The girls’ amazing performance at conferences and the rest of the season was more than enough to send them to regionals, where the team placed 3rd overall, scoring 137.65.

After the exciting meet at regionals, the girls were heading to states. The team, along with five individual players, would compete at Lakeland Highschool. They placed 12th, making for an all-around incredibly successful season.

One of the most important part of this season is all the returning leaders and talented individuals for next year’s team, including Abby Cumings, Charlotte Stephan, Megan Wilson, and many more.

“I am very proud of what my team was able to accomplish this year, and I can’t wait for next season,” head coach Lauren Suzio said.
