"Britni placed the highest she ever has in the all-around competition (second).  She had a very solid meet," Kjos commented.

Teammate Andrea Olson qualified for her first trip to the state meet by winning the section competition with a 9.200 on the balance beam.  "She did a fantastic job," said Kjos.
