Gymnasts bring home region title, heading to state meet

The Chamberlain gymnastics team really pulled it together to score their highest team score of the season and earn the title of Region champs for the second consecutive year! I was super surprised to beat Hot Springs, as they have been ahead of us all year. I was actually going into Regions with the hopes that we could be in the top three to make it to state. I never thought that Region champs was a possibility, but these guys stepped it up! We were first on bars for event scores by about two points, second on vault behind Wall, and third on beam and floor behind Hot Springs and Vermillion.

We had a better meet on beam, with Ciara Hough, Alyssa Allen and Mikayden Weston all having no fall routines. Kathrinn Hopkins had a fall, Jerica Steckelberg had two and Kazney Knippling had three which prevented her from qualifying, but we have been working much harder on beam, and hopefully it will pay off at State.
