The NHS Mock Trial teams competed in the Quarterfinals of the Hamilton County tournament last Saturday. Both teams were defeated in that round and finished the season with great improvements after having many rookie attorneys. 

 

Witnesses were the strength of the teams this season, with 3 award winners. Mylee Franklin & Wyatt Klueber (klee-ber) both received 1st place medals for their character portrayals during the season. Ella Foreman received a 2nd place medal for her character. Great job this season Mock Trial teams! 

 

For any non-senior students, if you have an interest in the legal profession, or like to role play as a character, consider Mock Trial next year during call-outs in August.

Sports

 

  This past weekend, your Lady Miller Gymnastics Team competed in the sectional competition placing 5th out of 11 teams with a great team score of 92.35. 

On Vault

Leading the way for the Lady Miller Gymnasts was Senior, Devyn Palmer with an outstanding score of 8.7 her highest vault score of the season.  Follow close behind Devyn was her teammate junior, Olivia Mangin with another outstanding score of 8.65.  Junior, Kayleigh Sahr scored a wonderful 8.3 and was the other score that created the Lady Miller's team score on vault which was an outstanding 25.65.  This was also the highest team vault score of the season. 

Vault was our first event of the day and it was a wonderful way to start out the competition as starting out well builds confidence for the rest of the competition.

On Bars

Leading the way for the Lady Miller's was Senior, Devyn with her score of 6.725.  Following close behind Devyn was Junior, Olivia Mangin with her score of 6.65.  Junior, Kayleigh Sahr scored a 6.4 which was the 3rd score that counted for the Lady Miller's team score on bars which was a total of 19.775.  We did the best we could do on bars today, unfortunately bars is our weakest event and it just was not enough in comparison to other teams.  I would have loved to have seen our team score a point or two higher on bars, but it is the sectional competition and there are no "free-be's" on a day like today.  We did our best on bars and that is all I expect them to do!

On Beam

Leading the way for the Lady Miller's was Senior, Devyn Palmer with an outstanding score of 8.3.  Devyn also had the only "Beam Stick" of the day for the Lady Miller's.  Junior, Olivia Mangin scored a 6.775 and Freshman, Kiley Reisner scored a 6.575 which was the 3rd score that counted for the team score of 21.65.  We had some struggles on the beam today.  We missed some of our connections and we also had some falls.  Aside from Devyn's solid beam routine, I was disappointed with our struggles that we had today on beam.  I was hoping to have a solid 23 or 24 for our team total score on beam today, and unfortunately, we were not able to achieve that goal on beam today. 

On Floor

Leading the way for the Lady Miller's was Senior, Devyn Palmer with an excellent score of 8.675 which is Devyn's highest floor score of the season.  Junior, Olivia Mangin had an outstanding score of 8.35, which was also her highest floor score of the season.  Junior, Cailey Hurst scored a solid score of 8.2, which is also her highest floor score of the season.  These three young Ladies were the three that created the Lady Miller's team score on floor which was a total of 25.225 and a great way to finish the season and competition with the highest team floor score of the season.  I was very proud of all our floor competitors today.  They all performed very well on floor and finished the season strong. 

In the All-Around

Senior, Devyn Palmer scored a fantastic 32.4 which was her highest all-around score of the season and a wonderful way to finish her season and her gymnastics career and NHS.  Junior, Olivia Mangin scored a wonderful all-around score of 30.425 also with a great all-around score to end her gymnastics season. 

Over all, I was very proud of my team today.  We had some things that I would have liked to have done better, but it would not have changed the outcome of our placement in the sectional today.  We still would have placed 5th even if we would have added back in our missed connections and falls that we had today.  Given that only 3 teams advance out of the competition onto the regional competition and the top six individuals off of each event including the all-around, we were not a part of the teams and individuals that advances onto the next round.  Our season ends this weekend with our total team stats of 16 wins and 18 losses.  We made an excellent come back towards the end of our season and despite some big losses that we had with injuries we had a great season over-all.  I am very proud of this team and what we have accomplished this year.
