Huron gymnasts 2nd in B-H triangular


BRITTON — The Huron gymnastics team kicked off the 2021 portion of its schedule with its highest team score of the season during a triangular in Britton on Thursday.

The Tigers used a score of 123.65 to edge Britton-Hecla, which finished at 123.50, for the second spot. Watertown won the event with a 145.55.

“It was great to be back in action,” Huron coach Julie King said. “The girls were ready for competition. Some new skills were added and it helped their team score."

Cameron Ruth and Eastyn Eichstadt were fourth and fifth, respectively, for the Tigers in the all-around with scores of 31.90 and 31.05.

Ruth was sixth in both the vault and floor exercise to lead Huron with scores of 8.90 and 8.35, respectively. She was also seventh on the bars with an 8.00.

Leah Pyle led the Tigers on the beam, finishing fifth with a score of 8.35.

“Leah Pyle is back from an injury she suffered earlier in the season and she had an excellent no-fall beam routine,” King said.

Brooke Bollinger of Watertown won the all-around with a 37.80. She also won the vault with a 9.50, floor exercise with a 9.60 and bars with a 9.65.

Jaidyn Dahl of Watertown won the beam with a 9.20.

The Arrows also won the junior varsity competition with a 128.80. Britton-Hecla was second at 109.15, while Huron was third at 101.95.

“We had several of the girls with their personal-best score on varsity,” King said. “On JV we also had girls posting their personal-best scores and throwing some new skills.”

The Tigers return to action today at the Brookings Invite at noon.
