Majette gymnastics squad dominates three-team meet
The Minot High gymnastics team crushed the three-team field at the Sadie Warren Memorial meet on Friday, boasting five of the top six finishers in the all-around.
Junior Madison Reiter won three events and placed second in the fourth to take home top honors (38.175 points). The Majettes – who won their fourth consecutive event – posted 147.125 team points, well ahead of Grand Forks (127.25) and Mandan (88.125).
“It was a good meet for us and we go into each meet hoping to do better ourselves and that’s what they did tonight,” Minot coach Robbie Werchau said. “We put in some new skills and we competed those well.”
Sophomore Hannah Werchau, Robbie’s daughter, won the balance beam and finished second in each event Reiter won.
Junior Jenna Breuer finished third in the all-around and seventh-grader Adisynn Widdel took fifth. Robbie Werchau said she was also pleased with the way sophomore Savannah Fix competed in her first meet after missing all of last season with a knee injury. Fix finished sixth on beam.
“Madison Reiter, she dominated,” Werchau said. “I’d say Madison and Hannah pushed each other so they both did well tonight. Adisynn Widdel, she’s just a seventh-grader and she picked up her competition level tonight, so I’m really proud of her.”
Mandan’s McKenzie Swallow was the top non-Minot performer. She finished fourth in the all-around.
The Majettes compete in the Grand Forks Invitational on January 18.
