Gymnastics secures its first win of the season

The FHC gymnastics team won its first meet of the season in a non-conference meet against Kenowa Hills on Monday; the Rangers competed exceptionally well, outperforming all of their previous events. Freshmen Rachael Yeager and Lucy Yoder performed very well during their meet on Monday. One of their veteran leaders has come to the realization that they are the real deal.

“They definitely have a lot of potential if they keep working hard and sticking to their training,” junior Alyssa Wierenga said.

Despite their first losses of the season to Lowell and Rockford, the girls came out with a vengeance like no other. They made a resounding statement in the OK White Conference and excelled at their floor routines and some skillful tricks. Sophomore Lauren Wolffis excelled on bars, as she has many things to prove this season as an underclassman on this team.

“I was very impressed on how Lauren performed today in her routines,” FHN senior Hannah Chadwick said. “She has a very bright future in front of her.”

Sophomore Payton Dailey was also extremely happy with the outcome of the meet.

“The girls competed strong,” Payton said. “I am sure the last two meets had to have taken a toll on them and their mindset coming into this one.”

The girls are looking to keep their win streak alive on Thursday by stealing a tough win from the tumbling Red Arrows of Lowell.
