The most important meet of the year commences this Friday, Jan. 31, 2019, for the Girls Gymnastics team where they will be competing against all other schools in this year’s CSL Conference.

The conference meet is the last one of the year unless the girls qualify to move onto regionals, so it is no doubt one of, if not the most important meet of the year, so all the girls are looking to do their personal best in the name of advancing the team.

“What I’m looking forward to most in this year’s conference meet is probably trying to beat my personal score and maybe place hopefully. I was 11th last year so hopefully I can do it this year,” senior Rita Yohanna said.

Although gymnastics is, in fact, a team sport, it is scored by each individual’s performance, so one girl on the team could be the deciding score in the whole meet.

“I will be competing bars in the conference and my goal is to just stick to my routine and hopefully get a personal best,” senior Claire Adler said.

Head coach Susan Arcus knows exactly what to expect from her gymnasts and expects nothing but great things from her top performers.

“So for conference meets this weekend for gymnastics we are really excited to try some new skills. Melanie Brill is our top varsity athlete and she will be competing in tumbling this weekend. She’s also been really cleaning up her form on her routines so we are really excited about that,” Arcus said.

The girls will kick off the night at 6:00 P.M. and know that they have a chance to potentially move on if they all give it their best and are able to compete against the other schools.

“I really honestly don’t think that we will win it all but we all know the potential we have individually so there is a slight chance of winning it,” sophomore Melanie Brill said.
