Linden — The LFLF gymnastics team lost some strong performers from last season’s team.
For that reason it seemed like this year may be a little bit of a rebuilding season.
However, apparently that isn’t the case. It seems the co-op gymnastics team with athletes from Linden, Fenton and Lake Fenton remains a pretty strong squad.
The LFLF team won another dual meet recently, defeating the Hartland Eagles 139.425-136.4 in the squad’s final home meet of the season.
“I am pleased with how the season is going,” LFLF varsity gymnastics coach Nancy Holden said. “Every year you start out with a new group of girls and they have to learn to work together as a team. Every week they are getting stronger not only at this but at their skills. We have been able to increase our difficulty and to hit our routines more consistently so I think we will feel confident going into regional to be the best team we can be.”
The LFLF squad flourished on the floor, recording three scores above a 9.0. Apryl Smith led the team with a 9.225, while Ella Cox had a 9.075.
Lauren Hayden recorded a 9.050 followed by Sabra Robinson (8.925), Emma Jump (8.850) and Maty Temrowski (8.575).
Smith also had the team’s top score on the bars with an 8.475. Her other event scores were n 8.80 on the vault and an 8.725 on the beam. She had an all-around score of 35.225.
Hayden was the team’s top all-around performer, posting a score of 35.275. She also led the team on the vault (8.825) and the beam (9.125). She also recorded an 8.275 on the bars.
Cox’s score counted toward the team score in every event. She had an 8.60 in the vault, a 7.950 on the bars and an 8.775 on the beam.
