Julia Petty, Sydney DePompei, and Alyssa Bezdek were a big reason why the Explorer gymnastic team took home 5th at the State Team Meet. All three girls were back at it on Saturday, as they competed in the Individual competition.
Julia qualified for three of four events and also the all-around, as an individual. She turned in a great score on the bars, with a 9.15, good enough for a 9th place finish! She also performed well on floor with an 8.925 and vault, with an 8.675, good enough for 26th and 31st, respectively. As a result, Julia finished 19th overall in the individual all-around competition, and was recognized as one of the top gymnasts in the state!
Sydney qualified for the floor exercise on Saturday and turned in one of her best floor performnaces of the year, earning a score of 9.35 and taking home 6th place overall, reaching the podium!
Alyssa qualified for beam and also performed well, despite a tough routine, placing 36th in the state.
All three girls will return next season and look to lead the Explorers back to the State Meet in hopes of improving upon their top five finish. Congratulations, ladies!
