It was the end of the season for the Seymour gymnasts team and an abrupt end to the high school career of senior Kelly Deppen.
Deppen, who finished fourth in the all-around competition at last year’s state finals, took 10th in Friday night’s Columbus East Regional to lead the Owls to a fourth-place team finish. Only the top six in the all-around and each individual event qualify for state.
“Unfortunately with this sport, you have your good meets and you have your bad meets, and even in warmups tonight, on floor, Kelly looked at me and said ‘I’m off tonight,’” Seymour coach Angie Mellencamp said.
