Esky gymnasts place 10th

COLDWATER — The Escanaba gymnastics team traveled to Coldwater for the Coldwater Invitational Saturday and took 10th place out of 16 teams.

The Eskymos finished just short of a qualifying score (120) with 119.725 points.

“If we could stay on beam, we would have hit 120 points,” Esky coach Theresa Pascoe said. “We have to work harder to stay on.”

Top finishers for Esky were Abbie Derouin and Maddy Block, who each posted an 8.65 score to place ninth on vault.

“This week we will work on cleaning up routines and making changes where need be,” Pascoe said. “Our B team did a fantastic job at this meet. I’m very proud of all the girls.”
