The Mirror reporter

The SPASH gymnastics season started off in November, and since then the girls have been working extremely hard to accomplish their number one goal: attend state.

It’s a tradition, as these past three years SPASH gymnastics has attended the state meet for the team competition and some girls who competed individuals.

Renee Hinchcliffe who is a junior, has been a part of SPASH gymnastics since she was a freshman. She is a huge part of the team and is very consistent on all of her events as she competes for varsity all-around. Hinchcliffe would absolutely love to attend state for team and individuals.

Olivia Clemens, one of the two seniors, has high hopes as she would love for the team to win conference and get top two at sectionals to have the team go to state. Clemens also hopes to go to state for the individual competition and compete all-around.

Jennifer Bellmer, the head coach said, “These girls have been working hard and have really bonded well with all of the newcomers.” Bellmer has outstanding coaching skills and really focuses on tightness in routines so the girls can look confident and poised.

The gymnasts received their leading score of the season on Thursday, Feb 1 at their home dual meet against Antigo with a 135.55.

The team has high hopes going into these next few weeks with conference and sectionals coming up. The gymnasts are putting in all of their efforts so they can attend the state meet.
