SHS gymnasts top Pomona on road

The Summit High School gymnastics team rebounded after a loss this week with a convincing win over host Pomona on Saturday, 163.625-157.625.Head coach Beth Flaherty was dissatisified with the Tigers’ recent work on beam, but the team redeemed itself Saturday with a 41.05 score, nearly a full point better than its performance earlier this week.Juniors Hannah Bolt (8.75), Lauren Biegler (8.65) and Kelly Scholl (8.45) all stuck their routines, Flaherty said, good enough for first, third and fifth, respectively. On bars, Biegler (8.4), sophomore Nicole Luby (8.2), junior Emma Koenig (8.2) and senior Amelia Meier (8.2) swept the standings, first through fourth.The day’s low point came on floor, where the team’s score was its lowest of the year.”Floor was a challenge with the tumbling not as high or strong as I would have hoped,” Flaherty said. “While overall the girls are stronger tumblers than in the past, the endurance on a ‘dead mat’ floor still needs some work.”Still, senior Shauna Neely (8.45, fourth), Meier (8.3, tied for fifth) freshman Hannah Harris (8.3, tied for fifth) and Scholl (8.0, sixth) placed.Flaherty was pleased with the vault, where Koenig (8.45), Scholl (8.35) and freshman Leah Canfield (8.3) swept the top three places. The event had been Summit’s biggest unknown entering the season. “Overall I was pleased with today’s performance,” Flaherty said. “While the team score only improved by 0.1, I’m not seeing the same early season mistakes. We are looking forward to our home meet on Monday against Evergreen – they are definitely within our reach.”
