Gymnastics places third at Kenowa Hills
by Justin Scott
Despite the cancelation of the Lowell Invitational earlier this month, the Lowell Gymnastics team was still able to honor our Military in a shorter version of their Military Appreciation Meet this past Wednesday against Rockford/Sparta.
The Lady Arrows wore military-themed leotards for the event. Members of the Lowell Boy Scout troop held American flags high in the air as Jack Misner played taps and the Star-Spangled Banner on his trumpet.
At the Kenowa Hills Invitational on Saturday, Lowell placed third as a team. They were led on beam by Marissa Weaver (Division 1 - third), Kira Jungblut (Division 2 - ninth), Katy Hockey (Division 2 - seventh) and Ivy McDonald (Division 2 - fourth). On floor team leaders were Wever (Division 1 - third), Greta Forward (Division 2 - tenth) and McDonald (Division 2 - fifth). On vault, Wever placed third in Division 1, while in Division 2 Aubri Lemke placed seventh and Forward placed second. On bars, Lemke placed seventh.
Wever also placed third in the Division 1 all-around. In the Division 2 all-around, Forward placed ninth and McDonald placed seventh.
