Owls win invitational


Seymour High School continued its dominant season Saturday by winning the Bloomington North Invitational.

The Owls scored 102.85 points in the 10-team tournament, beating out Owen Valley (101.95) and Lake Central (98.775).

“We had a great day,” Owls coach Angie Mellencamp said. “We competed with a brand new line up today and it worked. The girls had some unusual challenges to face this week and every single one of them stepped up to the plate. Liz (Copeland) and I could not be more proud of their performances and this win. Expectations will be going up for the practices over the next two weeks to prepare for sectionals and the girls are ready for it.”

Kellsye Warner and Avery DeHart provided a one-two punch for the Owls, taking first and third in the all-around with 35.425 and 34.725 points.

Warner was champion in the vault (9.025) and on the floor (9.325). She also took fifth for beam (8.725) and fourth for bars (8.350).

DeHart was second on the floor (9.275), fourth for beam (8.75), fifth on bars (8.159) and 10th at the vault (8.55).

Other placers for the Owls included Brett Kleber (eighth on bars) and Nicole Elmore (9th on beam, 11th on floor).

“Kellsye led the team today in every event except for beam,” Mellencamp said. “Fortunately, Avery DeHart stepped up and had a solid beam routine. Nicole Elmore stepped up her game on floor helping out our end team total. Ali DeHart competed a new bar and beam routine. Brett Kleber has a brand new release on bars and competed a brand new vault. We tried new skills today and it paid off, now it’s time to clean and perfect.”
