Ballard beat Bainbridge in the much-anticipated rematch last week in girls varsity gymnastics.

Ingraham was third in the meet, with a score of 163.900, followed by Garfield with 115.550 and Franklin with 74.200.

Ballard finished on top last Friday thanks to first-place finishes on the vault, uneven parallel bars and floor.

The Spartans were first on balance beam, and also tied for first place on the floor exercise.

On vault, Bainbridge finished fourth, with Katharine Cooper collecting a score of 8.5.
