BAINBRIDGE – The Spartans sizzled in their home opener in girls varsity gymnastics late last week, with a big win over the teams from Roosevelt, Ingraham and Garfield.

Bainbridge took first with a score of 165.3.

The Rough Riders of Roosevelt were second with 145.05. The Ingraham Rams placed third (141.2), while the Garfield Bulldogs were fourth (89.9).

“We were really happy; we exceeded our team goal,” said Spartan Coach Cindy Guy. “Our vault scores were higher, our bar scores were higher.”

The Spartans claimed first place in vault, uneven parallel bars, balance beam and floor exercise.

Bainbridge did best on floor, with a score of 44.

The biggest gap in scores, however, came on bars, where Bainbridge finished with 38.75 to second-place Roosevelt’s 30.85.

Mariko Ronan took first place for BHS on the floor exercise, with a top score of 9.2. Sister Spartan Remi Rosencrans was second with a score of 8.9 in the event.

Ronan also won on beam, with a first-place score of 8.45. Emma Chee was second for Bainbridge (8.4), while Rosencrans was third (8.3).

Kati Cooper finished first on bars (9.05) for Bainbridge, followed by Rosencrans in second (7.75), Ronan in third (7.7) and Emma Chee in fourth (7.3).

Vault saw a highly competitive contest, with 10 athletes bunched into three tie scores.

There was a two-way tie at the top, with Bainbridge’s Alathea Pippinger and Roosevelt’s Jayla Bowie each scoring 8.4.

Five gymnasts followed with a score of 8.3: Ronan, Rosencrans, Chee, Karesse Pippinger and Ingraham’s Nathalie Shoji.

The next three athletes all scored 8.2: Keagan Daniels and Lina Klinkenberg for Bainbridge, and Sophie Ledley for Roosevelt.

Ronan claimed the top all-around honors for BHS, with a total score of 33.65.

Rosencrans was second (33.250), followed by Chee in third (32.5), and Daniels (31.35) in fourth.
