RECAP WH Gymnastics Meet 1/16/18

Gymnastics: Whitman-Hanson vs Hingham & Cohasset-Norwell

In consistent fashion, Whitman-Hanson Panther gymnasts totaled a  127.7 and picked up their second win over non-league Cohasset-Norwell, but suffered their first Patriot League loss to Hingham (130.45).

Senior Britney Blackstone posted the competition's highest all-around performance (34.85), vault score (9.3) uneven bars score(8.75), and floor exercise score (8.8).  With a fall and a missed connection on beam, she put up the meet's fourth highest beam routine score (8.0). 

Sophomore Sarah Bombardier earned the meet's fourth highest all-around score (31.3).  She put up a personal best vault score (8.7) for second place.  She posted Whitman-Hanson's second highest uneven bars score (7.35) and the team's third highest floor score (8.0). 

Freshmen Savannah Poirier secured the Panther's second highest floor score (8.1) and third highest uneven bars score (7.1). 

Freshman Madison Scaccia performed a personal best vault for the team's third highest score on the event (8.0).

The team once again had some bobbles and wobbles on their last event of the evening, balance beam. Junior Erin McCoy, mainstay in the lead off position, strongly started the event with her fourth stuck beam routine of the season. Other beam routine sticks came from senior veterans Kaylee Torpey and Kaileigh Gordon who both scored a 7.8. Freshman Madison Scaccia also had a solid stuck beam routine to earn a 7.6.  

The team continues to be consistent with overall score which is wonderful, and there is always much more good than bad at each competition, but there is certainly room for improvement. We especially look forward to hitting the beam hard at our next practice and improving on our beam scores!
