Wolf Point’s Gracie Ferdina won the second place medal on the floor exercise and third place medals on the uneven bars and for her all-around score at the Montana State Gymnastics Championships in Bozeman. (Submitted photo)
The five girls on the Eastern Montana Gymnastics Level 3 Team competed at the 2015 Montana State Gymnastics Championships and brought back one state championship and several other top event medals, Sunday, March 29, at the Shroyer Gymnasium on the MSU campus in Bozeman.
Leah Beery of Vida earned the gold medal for her first-place floor routine and became the 2015 Montana State Level 3 floor champion in her age group. Sierra Nagle of Circle was awarded a medal in all four events, while Gracie Ferdina of Wolf Point won two event medals.
The EMG girls competed in the Level 3 Small Teams division, with teams from Hamilton, Kalispell, Helena, Miles City, Great Falls and Glendive. There were 10 to 11 girls in each of the five age groups and the top five in each event earned the coveted USA Gymnastics medals. All the gymnasts received medals for their all-around scores and for qualifying to the Championships.
Beery competed in the C age group of 11 girls and won EMG’s 53rd state championship in the 13 years of the Circle gym. Besides her first place floor routine, she was just out of the medals on bars and beam, where she finished in sixth place. On vault, she was eighth.
Ferdina, Nagle and Cheyenne Clinton of Circle competed in the D age group, of 11 girls. Nagle came away with a lot of hardware, after earning medals for her fourth place finishes on bars, beam, floor and all-around and her fifth place finish on vault. Ferdina received medals for her second place on floor and third places on bars and for her all-around. She just missed the medals with her sixth place finishes on vault and balance beam. Clinton had her best routines on bars, where she placed eighth, and vault, where she placed ninth.
Kirsten Wagner of Circle competed in the A age group, with the ten youngest gymnasts, and just missed the medals with her tie for sixth place on the bars. She continued to show great improvement by scoring almost a point and a half higher than her last meet.
EMG’s Paige Inion qualified to the championships but was unable to compete.
Level 3 scores [vault, bars, beam, floor, all-around]: Ferdina [9.025, 9.15, 8.65, 9.225, 36.05], Nagle [9.05, 9.05, 8.8, 8.85, 35.75], Beery [8.95, 8.85, 8.375, 9.175, 35.35], Wagner [8.675, 8.35, 7.725, 7.8, 32.55], Clinton [8.65, 8.55, 7.15, 7.15, 31.5].
