After a few tough matches to open the season, first-year Head Coach Alex Thomsen got her first career win when the Wildcats toppled the Princeton Tigers in a battle of conference feline foes on Monday, December 21.
Izzy Hindt was the catalyst for the Wildcats’ win, as she was the top all-around finisher at the meet with a 33.075. She was tops on the uneven bars and balance beam and third on the vault and second on the floor exercise.
The vault was the strongest event for the ‘Cats with everyone registering a 7.85 and above. Savannah Gorski scored 8.45 for a second place, Hindt came in third, Payton Nelson registered an 8.25, Natalie Silver had an 8.0 and Maddie Audette scored a 7.85.
Gorski and Lydia Trandahl came in third and fourth on the bars, Gorski finished fifth on the beam and Audette and Silver went back-to-back on the floor in fourth and fifth place.
“The girls had a great meet! I can definitely see that their hard work at practice is paying off,” Thomsen said. “The meet was very close, and we knew that going into it it would be a close one! This is both JV and varsity's best team scores so far this season. We hope that we can keep improving the way we have been.”
Chisago Lakes’ junior varsity team features recent transfer Emily Leibke, who isn’t eligible to compete on varsity for a year. Leibke scored a 34.55 to dominate JV. She’s been a welcome addition to the team at practice and will make a big impact on next year’s scores.
