By Staff | Jan 19, 2014

Despite wintery conditions last Tuesday, the Blue Earth Area gymnasts traveled to Windom for a meet.

Windom’s team total of 134.60 gave them the win for the night. BEA?was only able to score 116.98.

Haley Resutek has been showing her all around skills this season and the meet in Windom was no exception. She came in fourth for all around with a score of 32.05.

Resutek also tied for third on the bars with a score of 7.65 and placed fourth on the beam with an 8.175.

Other gymnasts from Windom placing in the all-around category were Miki Bolin in first place with 34.9, Hannah Kloss in second with 34, and Megan Theesfel in third with 32.475.

Melissa Hagedorn placed on the vault at the Magic invite on Jan. 12 and she continued her momentum in that event at the Windom meet as well.

She tied for fourth place with Hannah Kloss of Windom with scores of 8.45.

The JV?squad also competed at Windom, however their number of competitors was still low.

Only one Buc JV?gymnast was able to compete for all around, and she didn’t score enough points to place.

Hayley Jahnke, however, did perform well on her floor routine which put her in a tie for fourth place.

Tori Christoffer of Windom tied Jahnke on the floor with scores of 6.2.

Magic Invitational

The Blue Earth Area Buccaneers faced the Martin County Area Magic again, except this time it was at the Magic Invite.

The gymnastics invitational which took place on Jan. 12 in Welcome also included Jackson County Central and Luverne.

Earlier in the week, several Buc gymnasts sat out from competition.

“We were missing a bunch of girls so our JV team was very short of competitors,” co-coach Merissa Lore says. “Two of our varsity girls were also out from injury and sickness.”

The JCC?Huskies came out on top by the end of the meet with a team total of 135.725. MCA came in second with 132.95, Luverne in third with 122.85 and BEA was fourth with 112.225.

Despite a last place finish as a team, two BEA individuals scored high enough to place during the invite.

The top six medalists were recognized for the all around portion of the competition. Haley Resutek tallied a total of 30.85 which put her in sixth place in all around.

Haley Bass of JCC?was the top competitor in all around with a score of 34.95. Others to place in the all-around category included: Bryanna Peterson of MCA, 34.25; Brooklyn Schuett of JCC, 32.925; Samantha Pierce of Luverne, 31.675; and Madison Schandelmeier of Luverne, 31.35.

Melissa Hagedorn was the other Buc gymnast to climb in the ranks and place during an event at the invite.
