The Altoona Mirror

The Altoona Area High School gymnastics team is off to a nice start for the 2012-13 season.

On Saturday afternoon at the Fieldhouse, the Lady Lions improved their record to 3-0 on the young season, thanks to a 132.75-95.55 victory over Ridgway. Altoona won first-place honors in the vault, bars, beam, floor and the all-around categories.

"The girls were consistent in all four events," Altoona coach Michele Corle said. "They continue to get better with each meet."

The junior took first in the vault (8.55), the beam (8.9), the floor (8.85) and the all-around (33.9). Teammate Josie Brandt won the bars (8.8).
