Seymour edges Bloomington North


For The Tribune

The Seymour gymnastics team celebrated senior night with a 103.025-97.525 win against Bloomington North on Monday night at Gymnastics Lane.

Prior to the meet, Owl senior Kellsye Warner, along with the Bloomington North seniors, were introduced.

“Kellsye started with me her sophomore year,” Owls coach Angie Mellencamp said. “Kellsye has added a lot to the program. She came in very well trained, and she’s really an athlete for the younger girls to look up to. When she was an underclassmen the upperclassmen were looking up to her as well.

“She is very clean, and she will go after her skills and be more aggressive than the average athlete. She’s really been easy to coach over the years because if I do ask her to go after something she will. “Unfortunately right before the meet Kellsye hurt two fingers, so it played a role in all of her events. I’m proud of her. She pushed through it and had a great meet, especially considering she had two injured fingers.”

Warner finished second in all-around with a score of 34.425. She was first on beam with a score of 9.1, and third on floor exercise with an 8.475.

Avery DeHart was first in all-around with a score of 34.775, and she was first on floor at 9.4.

“Avery had a really nice meet,” Mellencamp said. “She’s getting her new skills in, and she’s really working on her execution so it’s really bringing her score up.”

Grace Furlow earned Seymour’s other first by winning vault with a score of 9.05, and she was second on bars at 8.2.

“That’s our second-highest team score for the season,” Mellencamp said. “We did have some falls on beam, and we had some extra skills on bars that we normally don’t put in, but the girls did OK.

“We had a meet Thursday night, we only had a Friday-Saturday practice and we’re back at it again tonight, so they’re just now getting a taste of compete without any rest.”

The Owls will compete in the Bloomington South Invite beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday.
