Local sports wrapup – January 29



Owls win invitational


Scoring 106.25 points, Seymour distanced themselves from the pack.

The Owls won the Bloomington South Invitational on Saturday, beating out Bloomington North (95.8), South (95.6), Franklin Central (95.075), Martinsville (81.7) and Brebeuf (59.675).

“The hard work the girls are putting in at practice is starting to pay off,” Owls coach Angie Mellencamp said. “We still have room for improvement, but I am very excited to see the big skills being put in and receiving the higher score.”

Seymour took the top three spots in the all-around, with Kellsye Warner (36.325 points), Avery DeHart (35.375) and Grace Furlow (34.8) taking top honors.

On the bars, the Owls swept the first four positions. Furlow won with 8.325 points, followed by Warner (8.275), Brett Kleber (8.7) and Ivy Brown (8.35).

Warner claimed first in both the beam and floor with scores of 9.45. DeHart placed second on the floor with a 9.3.

The vault saw the Owls lay claim to the top three, as DeHart (9.2), Furlow (9.1) and Warner (8.7) had strong showings.

“Kellsye Warner stepped into the leader role this meet nailing her beam, floor, and bar routines,” Mellencamp said. “She still has work to do on vault, but she nailed her performances today.

Avery DeHart, Grace Furlow, and Brett Kleber also stepped up their game today on bars and had no fall routines. We had a good day today. It was nice to see the girls not show a lot of nerves. I hope we continue to bump up that team score every meet, we plan on hitting numbers in the gym this week to make it happen.”
