HURON - Tigers gymnasts finished behind the Watertown Arrows in a triangular held in Huron Thursday evening.
Erica Zell led the Tigers, finishing third in the all-around, buoyed by a second place finish in floor, third place finish in beam, fourth place finish in bars, and fifth place finish in vault. In her floor routine, Zell scored a 9.65, which broke her own school record.
“Erica had an impressive meet,” remarked Coach Julie King. “It was her first meet back after surgery to have her tonsils removed.”
Zell was the only Tiger tumbler to finish in the top-five in an event, but four Huron gymnasts finished in the top-10 in events on the night. Adison Gross finished 10th in vault. Leah Pyle finished eighth in bars, while Kassie Decker finished 10th. Decker also finished seventh in beam and ninth in floor on her way to an eighth place finish in all-around. Jacelyn Bankston finished ninth in all-around.
Coach King felt it was a good return to action for the Tigers:
“The girls hit some great skills and fell short on some execution. However, we did have our highest team score of the season.”
Huron is back in action on Saturday at Brookings for the Brookings invite at noon.
