Owls runner-up at invite
With 104.425 points, Seymour placed second of 11 teams at the Bloomington North Invitational on Saturday.
Bloomington South led all teams at 109.20.
“The girls had a great day and bringing home second place reflects that,” Owls coach Angie Mellencamp said. “The girls continue to make improvements weekly and it is reflected in our team score.
Seymour’s Kellsye Warner placed second in the all-around with 36.35 and Avery DeHart finished fifth at 35.025.
Warner got first on the beam (9.45), third for floor (9.25), fourth on the bars (8.9) and ninth in vault (8.75).
DeHart had strong performances on the vault (third, 91.25), beam (fourth, 9.225) and floor (9.025).
“Going into the meet today we were not ranked to bring home the second place trophy,” Mellencamp said. “However along with working to gain extra points the girls are becoming more consistent in their performances.
The consistency is gaining them confidence and you can see it in their execution. I am very proud of this team and the girls for continuing to work for every little tenth they can gain.”
