The OHS Girls Gymnastics team is off to a great start, as they hope to continue on with last year’s success. The team’s record thus far is 2-0. The team is young, having only two seniors. However, the young gymnasts are very talented and contribute to the team’s success every meet.

With all the talent they hold, the team has a positive outlook on the rest of the season.

Head coach Evan Moe said,“We’re undefeated in duel meets so far and just won the MGJA invite which has 16 teams competing in it. We also are ranked two in the state currently based on the coaches association website.” With the excellent success thus far the team has high aspirations to keep competing at a high level for the remainder of the season. 

Another very important part of gymnastics or any sport is the chemistry between the people involved, the chemistry of any team contributes to the success.

“The team chemistry is really good, we are like one big family,” said senior Jayna Martin. With the good team chemistry it comes without surprise that the team is doing well being that they enjoy the sport, the people they are around and competing together.

 Their next home meet is Friday, Jan. 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Owatonna Gymnastics Club. Owatonna is also hosting the Big 9 section meet at OHS on February 15, 2023.
