Area Gymnastics: Flyers tumble past Howard Lake
HOWARD LAKE — Maddi Dehn scored season highs on the floor, beam and the all-around as Little Falls defeated Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted 125.4 to 124.975 in a Granite Ridge Conference meet.
Kali Schirmers hit her season-high on the floor routine and the vault. Ashley Hagen did the same on the bars and in the all-around.
“I was very impressed and pleased with the depth of our team,” Flyers head coach Rachelle LeBlanc said. “Libbie Lorentz and Tahlia Craft both stepped up when asked and delivered for the team. With our team getting struck by illness this last week, we were unsure what would be the outcome of tonight’s duel with so many girls out. It is so great to have gymnasts, ready and eager to step in when needed.”
