Sierra Hunter, shown here on the balance beam, won the ‘all around’ competition after earning the top score in floor exercise during the home dual victory versus West Salem.
Tara Solberg, shown here on the parallel bars, had the highest vault score versus West Salem and scored even better for second-place finishes against Byron/Lourdes and Stewartville/Kasson-Mantorville.
Three meets in four days kept Caledonia/Spring Grove/Houston gymnasts busy last week.
C/SG/H vs. Byron/Lourdes
On Dec. 17, the Warriors squared off with the Bears. C/SG/H was defeated 127.95-121.825.
Kaylee Cavanaugh won the parallel bars with a score of 8.05. She also took second on balance beam (7.95), fifth on floor routine (8.1) and totaled second in all-around (32.0).
Sierra Hunter took second on bars (7.8), third on beam (7.8), tied for fifth on vault (8.25), and finished fourth in all-around (31.0).
Tara Solberg took second on vault (8.525) and seventh on floor (7.4). She was fifth in all-around (30.38).
Abby Hoskins tied for fifth on vault (8.25). She finished sixth in all-around (27.65). Emily Hahn scored 7.75 on vault and 6.7 on beam.
Emma Weatherly of B/L won the all-around (33.08). She took first on beam and floor as well.
The C/SG/H JV team was defeated 109.50 to 88.95. Kerrigan Scanlan totaled 18.95, winning the all-around. Some other top scores for the Warriors included 7.5s on vault from Erin Schultz and Jessilyn Knutson.
C/SG/H vs West Salem
The Warriors hosted West Salem two nights later, defeating the Panthers 126.650 - 120.00.
"Things seem to have finally come together for the varsity team," Warriors coach Jackie Johnson said after the meet. Some literal last-minute alterations to floor routine paid off with improved scores.
"Improving (from 121.825) to a 126.65 in a day is a big deal, and we really had to put our heads together in just a day and change up a few things," Johnson added. "The girls did a great job remembering as well as performing.
"Having 4 varsity all-arounds scoring over 30 points each helped raise the team score also."
Johnson also noted a new personal-best all-around score for Hoskins who hit and surpassed 30 points.
Cavanaugh, Hunter, and Hoskins finished 1-2-3 on bars (8.075, 7.775, 7.750). Hunter took first on floor (8.425) followed by Cavanaugh (8.325).
The Warriors also went 1-2 on vault, with Solberg posting an 8.475, and Hoskins scoring 8.450.
In all-around, Hunter was the top athlete of the meet (32.400), followed by Cavanaugh (31.800), Amanda Whalen of West Salem (31.675), Solberg (31.500). and Hoskins (30.450).

With three of the top four all-around performances, a visit to Stewartville/K-M on Friday brought yet another varsity victory for the Warriors, 126.575-120.00.
Cavanaugh was first on beam (8.45), bars (8.1), and all-around (32.6). She tied for third on floor (7.95) with Hunter.
Hunter was second on bars (7.85), and third on beam (7.95). She took second in all-around totals (32.175).
