“We started the meet on beam and had a tough time staying on as a team,” St. Peter coach Kris Glidden said. “Jaiden Landsom, Audrey Kennedy and Anna hit nice routines. Anna and Audrey were very consistent once again. Anna added her front full to her floor routine and scored an 8.75. Audrey scored 33 points in the all around. Bella was able to compete all around. She is recovering from illness and getting stronger everyday.
“We are working on new skills, and hopefully everyone gets healthy and we can put it altogether by sections.”
