Columbus North gymnasts roll past Martinsville
February 1, 2013Columbus North High School
COLUMBUS, Ind. -- Freshman Katrina May posted four event runner-up finishes en route to the all-around blue ribbon Thursday evening (Jan. 31), leading the Columbus North gymnastics team to a convincing dual-meet victory over visiting Martinsville.
Seniors Danielle McDermott and Chelsea Wieland each won two individual events for the Bull Dogs, who totaled a season-high 108.550 points to 86.300 by the Artesians.
McDermott captured the vault with a 9.200 and the uneven parallel bars with a 9.325. Wieland took the balance beam with a 8.825 and the floor exercise with a 9.375.
May, meanwhile won the all-around with a 36.450 after placing second on vault (9.150), vars (9.225), beam (8.725) and floor (9.350).
"The team as a whole is moving in the right direction," Columbus North coach Sandy Freshour said. "In five of five meets, we've seen improvements. We're undefeated, and we hit our highest score of the year.
"The best part is it is not a one-person show. It's everyone contributing."
The Bull Dogs return to action at 11 a.m. next Saturday (Feb. 9) when they compete in the Connersville Invitational.
