Tigers gymnasts tumble against Green Mountain

DENVER ” For the second time this season, the Summit gymnastics team put up a respectable performance against a Class 5A school. And for the second time, they did it short-handed.

With senior captain Karrine Bergman getting sick on the bus ride down to Pamona High School, the Tigers were forced to have only five girls in their lineup.

“That was tough, because she usually is a top-3 or top-4 finisher,” head coach Lauren Wright said of the team’s loss to 5A Green Mountain.

Even though Summit had to count all five scores in each event in the meet ” high school gymnastics normally counts the best five out of six scores ” the Tigers still posted a season-best total of 151.05.

Jordan Smith and senior Chelsea Rybak led the way for the Tigers on the vault, finishing second and third, respectively.

On the beam, Anne DeJulio, Haley Harvey and Meigan Canfield all stuck their routines.

“They did a great job,” Wright said. “We had really been focusing on landing (our routines), and they did that.

“Hopefully, we can all get healthy, eliminate some falls, and we will be on the right track. … You can’t expect to have your best in the first one or two meets, but we will get there.”
