Cartersville gymnastics competes at Lovett
The Cartersville High gymnastics team traveled to the Lovett School Tuesday for their third meet of the season. Annaston Wilson and Karley Garrison each placed in the top four in events with twenty-two competitors. Garrison, a freshman, placed first all around with an impressive score of 34.55. Garrison placed first in floor with an 8.65, first in bars with an 8.5 and second in beam with a 9.0. She has an opportunity at the Canes final regular season meet Friday to qualify for more state preliminary events based on this meet's scores.
Wilson, a sophomore, received her second required individual score for qualifications in preliminaries with her floor score of 8.5. A score of 8.50 or above on individual events is the benchmark required for the individual event portion of post-season competition at the State Preliminary Qualifier in Buford on April 23. This qualifier gives Wilson a shot to compete at the state championship meet on April 24.
“I am so proud of these talented young women and their ability to perform,” remarked head coach Kimberly Mosteller. “I am excited about the opportunity for both girls to compete at State Preliminaries and possibly the State Gymnastics Championship. The ladies have worked very hard and we are excited about this chance to represent Cartersville.”
Next on the schedule for the Cartersville team is their final meet, the Bremen Invitational, at the Carroll County Recreation Center this Friday at 6:00 p.m.
