Gymnasts continue to show progress in dual against Lakers

James Sanchez likes the progress the Park Rapids-Nevis gymnastics team is making so far this season.

Despite falling to 0-2 in dual meets, the Panthers improved their team score for the third meet in a row in a 130.95 to 110.50 loss to the Detroit Lakes junior varsity team at Detroit Lakes on Dec. 15.

Brianna Nelson took first in vault with an 8.35 to lead the Panthers, who received a 32.70 in that event. Grace Litzau tied for third with an 8.20 while Morgan Koppelman's 8.15 and a pair of 8.00s by Halle Landstrom and Natalie Backmann rounded out the vaulters.

Park Rapids received a 27.90 in floor exercise behind Koppelman's 7.20, a pair of 7.00s by Litzau and Landstrom, and a 6.70 by Olivia Ulvin. Lexi Ostlie took first with a 9.20.

On balance beam, the Panthers used Landstrom's 6.90, Erin Tooker's 6.60, Alex Kirlin's 6.55 and Koppelman's 6.25 for a 26.30. Ostlie also led the field with a 9.45.

Tooker's 6.75 led the Panthers to a 23.60 on uneven parallel bars as Koppelman's 5.80, Landstrom's 5.70 and Litzau's 5.35 capped off the Panthers' team score in that event. Ellie Hultin took first with an 8.95.

Landstrom took fourth with a 27.60 while Koppelman was fifth with a 27.40 in all-around. Ostlie won the all-around title with a 34.45.

"We had a big jump in our team score," said Sanchez. "Each meet the girls are improving and our score is getting higher and higher."
