Jessica Beehler, Taylor Gotowka, Julia Hill and Sydney Swan all competed at Level 4. The girls scored mostly 8’s or 9’s on the vault and uneven bars and a little lower on the floor exercise and balance beam. Hill finished second overall in her age division and missed first by a tenth of a point. She placed first on the floor, second on balance beam and uneven bars and third on the vault. The girls will be competing again in March at the Lucky Stars Meet in Jamestown.
