After last year’s rebuilding year, the team has improved quite a bit this year. With the addition of some experienced freshman who compete in USA Gymnastics, this team will continue to get better. Last night them team had fun which was needed to help get those first meet butterflies out of the way for the rest of this season. Emily Futch, Kymber Fletcher, Hannah Newsome and Brianna Nelson started the meet strong all scoring in the eights and would take a second and third place in the Vault routine. The highlight of the night was freshman Khole Parker who would score a 9.0 on the bars and beam placing second in both.
