The Worthington High School gymnastics team, which just completed competing in the state tournament, had five athletes named to the 2023 All-Big South Conference team. And the WHS girls hockey team saw one player selected for its team, senior Riley Nickel.
Hali Bullerman finished 10th in the Minnesota Class A gymnastics all around. Kelsey Soleta performed in her final meet as a gymnast for WHS.
Due to the late announcement of the early exit from Worthington (due to an expected winter storm), there will not be a send-off for the Trojans. But there will be a celebration when they return from the Twin Cities, the time to be determined.
