NEW ULM - The Worthington gymnastics team started its season with a convincing road win Tuesday night.
WHS finished with a team score of 138.65, while New Ulm had 132.175.
“I’m super proud of the girls,” WHS head coach Joni Reitmeier said. “They came out and competed really well. Obviously getting those first-meet jitters out is always hard, especially on the road. A lot of these girls have been competing for a long time, so they know how to handle the pressure. They came out and did a really, really nice job.”
McKenna Prunty had a solid night for the Trojans, winning the all-around with a score of 35.55, tying for second with a 9.0 on the vault, taking third on the bars with an 8.05, winning the beam with a 9.025 and tying for first on the floor with a 9.15. Taylor Eggers was second in the all-around with a 34.75, while winning the vault (9.125) and the bars (8.35) and taking second in the beam (8.8). Maria Contreras tied for first on the floor with a 9.15, while Kara Thuringer was second in the vault with a 9.0 and third in the beam with an 8.675.
The WHS Junior Varsity also won with a team score of 125.8, with Gracia Elias winning the all-around with a 33.
The Trojans are at Marshall on Thursday.
