Girls Varsity Gymnastics · Solid Showing at GCC Championships


  Place Points
Strongsville High School 5th 134.1

The Strongsville Mustangs had a solid showing at the GCC championships despite serious injuries to two top athletes over the past 3 days. During Friday’s competition top all arounder Katie Kappel suffered a lower ankle fracture and during warm ups for today’s coemption senior captain Saaya Morton severely injured her ankle on beam. Despite this, the team rallied together and put together an outstanding team effort to finish 5th in the conference, just one tenth behind Medina. Individual award winners include Julia Spicer and Kelsey Kappel tying for sixth on floor with an 8.85 and Lorissa Schwab placing 4th on vault with a 9.05, 3rd on beam with an 8.5, and fifth in the all around with a 34.25. Schwab was also named to the all conference team.
