Head Coach: Kelly Loranger

Captains: Daisy Hartman and Morgan Lowell

Last Year: Loranger said after a successful season last year, the team is looking to repeat and improve their performance.

“We qualified seven girls to state, which was a really big achievement,” Loranger said, “because we sent probably the highest numbers of individuals. Newport sent the same number of girls as well, it was nice to see us well represented.”

This year, the team didn’t have many freshmen join, so the girls have mostly continued from where they left off last year.

Practice: While team members are working on each of their individual events, Loranger said they are also working on getting through an entire routine as a whole.

“We can do bits and parts,” she said. “But usually the adrenaline helps when they get to compete… In practice it’s harder to do.”

The captains, Hartman and Lowell, said that the team works in groups and athletes help each other on their individual events.

“Everyone watches each other on the apparatus. There’s only four so there is never just one girl on the bars or the beam. You always have a group working on something with you,” Hartman said. “Having other people push you helps you learn to push yourself.”

Meet to watch: Hartman and Lowell said the team has a rivalry with Newport due to their similar skill levels.

“Newport is our rival. Sometimes, we beat them, sometimes they beat us, that’s our second meet, it’s a home meet against them,” Lowell said.

“It’s the most exciting competing against Newport, since we are pretty much on the same level,” Hartman said. “You don’t know how it’s going to end up, so you want your girls to be on top of their game.”
