WELCOME - Jackson County Central remained unbeaten Saturday when it claimed first place in the team standings at a quadrangular hosted by Martin County Area.
The Huskies racked up 137.225 points to edge second-place MCA 135.325. Luverne wasn’t far off the pace, either, taking third with a 132.125 while Blue Earth Area settled for fourth at 116.425.
Abby Schneekloth continued her strong start to the season. The sophomore tallied 35.75 points for first place in the all-around. In doing so, she won three of the four events. Schneekloth received the top score on the vault at 9.35, the balance beam at 8.825 and in the floor exercise with a 9.1.
Luverne’s Madison Schandelmeier paced the Cardinal effort by taking second in the all-around with a score of 34.25. She was second all by herself on the bars at 8.775 and tied with Bryanna Peterson and Maiya Dietz from the Magic at 8.55 on the beam.
Haley Bass helped JCC’s cause with a pair of third-place finishes. She did so on the vault (9.075) and the bars (8.65). The Huskies swept the floor exercise. Along with Schneekloth’s first-place routine, Brielle Scheepstra took second at 8.925. Makenna Donnelli and Hailey Handevidt tied for third in the event.
Bergin Flom and Erin Sietsema added to Luverne’s success when they both received a 9.1 from the judges on the vault, putting them in a tie for second place.
Peterson won the bars for MCA at 8.825 and was third in the all-around with a 34.05.
Luverne is on its home floor twice this week, first taking on St. James Area on Tuesday before JCC joins it for a dual on Thursday. The Huskies will host the Sweetheart Invitational on Saturday.
