On Monday evening, your Noblesville Lady Miller Gymnastics Team competed against Marion High School and flipped right over Marion High School with Noblesville's team score of 93.425 to Marion's 35.825. Individual results are as follows:

On Vault:

Leading the way for the Lady Miller's was Junior, Olivia Mangin with an outstanding score of 8.75, which is one of her highest vault scores of the season, placing 1st for the vault competition.  Senior, Devyn Palmer had a great vault herself with a great score of 8.4 placing 2nd.  Junior, Kayleigh Sahr has one of her highest vault scores of the season with an outstanding 8.35 placing 3rd.  Junior, Ella Deno had her highest vault score of the season with an awesome score of 8.125 placing 4th, and Freshman, Kiley Reisner placed 5th with a great score of 8.050.  Today was a great day for us on vault as all the girls could execute their vaults well thus creating one of our highest team vault scores of the season, which is an excellent way to end our regular season meets on vault.  I am very proud of our vaults this evening which also give us confidence on this event as we move into our sectionals later this week. 

On Bars:

Leading the way for the Lady Miller's on Bars was Junior, Olivia Mangin with her outstanding score of 7.375 placing 1st.  Junior, Devyn Palmer placed 2nd with her score of 6.7.  Junior, Kayleigh Sahr placed 3rd with her score of 6.525, and Senior, Racheal Glasener placed 4th with her score of 6.25.  Though we are improving on bars over-all, today was a "set-back" for us on bars as we had been doing much better on our connections, but today we missed a few connections and even had one fall, which took away a couple points that we easily could have had on bars.  We will strive this week in practice to improve on our missed connections as we prepare for sectionals this coming Saturday.  We cannot afford to allow for these mistakes to happen in sectionals. 

On Balance Beam

Leading the way for the Lady Miller's was Senior, Devyn Palmer with an outstanding 1st place finish with her score of 8.05.  I am proud of Devyn for her consistency on beam, especially after she had been out for half of the season due to her back injury, she was able to come back from that injury and maintain one of our highest beam scores for the team.  Her consistency on this event will be very important for this coming weekend's sectionals.  Both Juniors, Ella Deno and Olivia Mangin placed tied for 2nd with their scores of 7.425.  This was also Ella's highest beam scores of the season.  Freshman, Kiley Reisner placed 3rd with her score of 7.15, and Junior, Kayleigh Sahr placed 4th with her first time ever competing beam score of 6.5.  Though we did not have any beam sticks today on beam, we are continuing to improve on our connections and we are seeing consistency in our team score for beam, which is a good thing.  I would like to see our team score at least 1 point more or higher for sectionals on Saturday. 

On Floor

Leading the way for the Lady Miller's was Senior, Devyn Palmer with an outstanding 1st place finish with her score of 8.325.  Junior, Cailey Hurst placed 2nd with her score of 8.075, following close behind was teammate Junior, Olivia Mangin with her 3rd place finish with her score of 8.050.  Junior, Kayleigh Sahr placed 4th with her score of 7.65 and Freshman, Kiley Reisner places 5th with her score of 7.475.  Today was a good day for us on floor.  We have seeing a rise in our floor team scores as we end our regular season competitions which is a great way to lead into the sectional competition as we hope to peak with our highest team floor score at sectionals this coming weekend. 

In the All-around

Junior, Olivia Mangin wins the competition with her 1st place finish and one of her highest all-around scores of the season with a 31.60.  Following close behind Olivia was teammate Senior, Devyn Palmer with her 2nd place finish of 31.475, and Junior, Kayleigh Sahr places 3rd with her first time ever competing all-around score of 29.025.

Over all, I am very pleased with the girls' overall performance.  I would have liked to see our team score match or be higher than our previous team score of 96, but we know where those mistakes were made and know that we are able to fix our mistakes for sectionals.  We end our regular season competitions with a win and an over-all confidence of our team going into the sectional competition prepared for battle as we have improved greatly from the beginning of the season to now.  I am very proud of this team and all their hard work as we end our regular season competitions on a high note. 

Come support your Lady Miller Gymnasts as they compete in their Sectional competition this coming Saturday February 23rd at Lafayette Jefferson High School at 11:00A.M.  Come support the team as they flip with way out of sectionals to the regional competition.
