BAINBRIDGE - on Saturday, Jan. 18.

Eleven teams from around the state took it to the mats as they flipped, twisted and muscled up in six events: floor, pommel horse, rings, parallel bars, high bars and vault.

The Bainbridge boys were on fire: Both the Level 4 and Level 5 Bainbridge teams landed squarely on the top podium as they took first place in team results.

For Level 4 gymnasts ages 7-8, Tommy Goodham came in first in rings and third on the high bar, tying for a bronze medal in the all around. Newcomer Dashiell Gann swung his way to fourth on rommel horse.

Owen Scheer dazzled in the Level 4, 9-10 age bracket, finishing first on pommel horse and rings and second on vault and high bar, coming in for a silver medal overall.

Newcomer Aidan Cretarolo rocked it with a third on vault and high bar. Jack Ekstrand earned second place on floor, Mace Korytko nailed secondĀ  on the pommel and rookie Charlie Dilorio-Triesch was right on his heels, securing third in the event.

Level 5 boys came on strong for Bainbridge in all age groups.

Max Bispham grabbed second on the parallel bars and powered into a fourth-place finish overall for the age 7-8 group.

The 9-10 age group athletes made a strong showing as well with Leo Uyekawa capturing second on rings and a solid third on floor and high bar, sailing into a bronze medal finish overall.

Kiernan Liberman trounced the 11-plus age group competition with first on high bar and vault and second on rings, pommel and parallel bars. He earned a meet high-score on his high bar routine, which landed him a first place all around.

Colin Hansen took first on parallel bars and pommel, and earned a bronze medal finish overall.

Veteran Abe Muldrow cinched third on floor, with a fifth-place finish overall.

With double team wins two meets into the season, Bainbridge Boys Gymnasts, coached by Bryan Garoutte and Tim Forro, are proving tough to beat.
