WORTHINGTON -- After a fall in her first event, Taylor Eggers picked herself up and won three of four events and took the all-around crown as the Worthington gymnastics team defeated Blue Earth Area 141.675-104.5 on Tuesday in Worthington.

Eggers won the vault, scoring 9.35, the balance beam (9.35) and the floor exercise (9.35) and the all-around (36.375). She finished second in the uneven parallel bars (8.325). She fell on her first event of the night, the bars, but picked herself back up to go out and win the rest of the events.

“She just didn’t make the skill she was trying to do, called a giant,” Trojans head coach Joni Reitmeier said. “It wasn’t the routine she wanted, but she came back strong on the other events. She knew she had to put that behind her and there’s nothing she could do about it.”

WHS’s Maria Contreras placed first in the uneven parallel bars, scoring 8.775, on the way to a second place finish in the all-around (35.65). She finished second on the vault (9.275), and third on the balance beam (8.5), and floor exercise (9.1).

Kara Thuringer of Worthington took third in the all-around, scoring 35.275, while finishing second on the balance beam (9.0), third on the vault (8.95), and uneven parallel bars (8.275) and fourth in the floor exercise (9.05).

“Kara Thuringer had a nice beam routine today,” Reitmeier said. “And a nice meet. She was consistent throughout the night. She’s in that third spot for us now and is handling that role.”

Seventh grader Abby Bristow placed second on the floor exercise for Worthington, scoring a 9.125.

“(Bristow’s) been filling in on the balance beam and on the floor,” Reitmeier said. “She’s been stepping up and she is impressive in the way she is handling it and helping the team.”

The Trojans junior varsity team defeated the BEA 132.2-84.65. Worthington’s Claire Ludes won the all-around with a score of 32.4, followed by teammates Adamari Rangel (31.25) and Marlena Garza (24.95).
