Article below written by Jessica Cook (12).

On Tuesday, Jan.16, the gymnastics team faced off against the Lowell Red Devils. The Indians defeated the Red Devils with an overall score of 102.2 to 92.6.

While the overall score includes all those on the team, individual scores do play an important part. The girls strive to get their highest score and that’s what Madison O’Drobinak (12)  did Tuesday night.

“I was really excited and my score was counted in our team score so it was nice to be able to help out my team and contribute to our win,” O’Drobinak said.

Even though the girls picked up a win, some players kept in mind what improvements could be made going further into the season.

“I’d say we can improve on the execution of our routines like having pointed toes, straight legs, and clean landings. A lot of us are putting in new skills, so really working hard on those to increase our scores,” O’Drobinak said.

Lake Central hold the first ever gymnastics meet.
