A Blue Earth Area gymnast has been recognized by the South Central Conference for her success this season.
Haley Resutek, the Buccaneers only senior gymnast, has been named to the All Conference team.
"To get on the All Conference team in gymnastics, it is based off of how often a gymnast places on each event during meets throughout the season,"?coach Merissa Lore says.
Based on those requirements, Resutek landed in fifth place within the SCC.
"We have a very good conference," Lore adds. "This shows Haley is consistent when she competes, which isn't easy in gymnastics."
Resutek's highest scores of the season was an 8.95 with her floor routine, 8.9 on the vault, 8.225 on beam, 7.95 on bars and an all around score of 33.525.
"Bars are one of Haley's weaknesses,"?Lore says. "But she has improved on them over the year."
Each gymnast sets goals at the beginning of each year and Resutek set six personal goals.
"She has achieved three out of her six goals and I am hoping she achieves two more of those at the Section meet,"?Lore says.
Being the only senior on the team, Resutek has also served as a leader to the other gymnasts this season.
"She is a good role model inside and outside of the gym," the coach adds.
According to Lore, Resutek shows up for each practice ready to work and works hard, giving 100 percent all of the time. "She never complains or makes excuses,"?she says. "And, she is always willing to help out."
Resutek will be missed on the gymnastic team next year but the coach was happy to see her really improve over the course of the season.
"I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to coach Haley and watch her grow up,"?Lore says. "I?am very proud of the gymnast and person she has become."
