The varsity combined girls’ gymnastics team competed against Neuqua on Thursday night. They fought hard, but were edged out by Neuqua at the end of the night, losing 128.85-131.75. The varsity team went up four points compared to their last meet, and JV managed to win against Neuqua.

“We did really well against Neuqua, our team was missing a few people because of collage and prism and we still managed to score 128.85 points so we are starting the season around where we left off last year, which is a very strong start,” sophomore Thalia Bowen said.

The team is working to build off of last year’s successes by learning new skills and fine-tuning the specifics that can really affect a team’s performance. In gymnastics, the slightest things can become deductions, such as not pointing toes or failing to start a combination properly.

“I’m looking forward to getting to learning new skills and spending time with my teammates inside and out of the gym,” senior Ashley Buscher said.

Even though they are a combined team with Waubonsie, the team bond is strong between all the girls and it is seen at meets through their performances and how they support each other. During each meet, the team cheers its players on and provides encouragement at times where the gymnast may feel overwhelmed by the task ahead.
