Alex Thomsen won the bars with a score of 8.100. Britni Harris was second on the bars (8.050), the vault (9.050), the beam (8.250), third in the floor exercise and second all-around (34.225).

“It was awesome. Many awards for the girls,” said Wildcat head coach Brett Kjos. “Even though we did not have our best meet, we are constantly improving our routines; trying to make them much more difficult.
“The girls are working extremely hard. What I find interesting is, at the beginning of the season, we were scoring in the low 120’s, hoping to score a 128. Now, if we do not score in the 130’s, the girls are disappointed because they know they can do so much better. It has been fun to see how their work ethic has improved over the season and how their internal motivation keeps pushing them to improve their scores.
“What a bunch of girls. Just outstanding! Hopefully all of their hard work will help at the end of the season. We will see,” Kjos concluded.
