Unedited report from Connersville coach Joann Borders: We started the day out having good warm ups. Then we found that Allison sprained her ankle warming up floor. And Brooke would only be able to do Bars and Floor because or her injury.

Allison only did bars. I am proud of the girls who competed. Lexi hit her personal best on vault with an 8.175, Victoria hit her personal best on vault with an 8.45, and Delaynee hit her personal best on vault with an 8.5. Delaynee also hit a personal best on floor scoring an 8.075.

Only the top 6 places qualify to go to regional. Our closest on each event:  Delaynee was 14th on vault with an 8.5. Allison was 14th on bars with a 7.55. Delaynee was 15th on beam with a 7.5. Victoria was 13th on floor with an 8.125. She made her layout half in her floor routine.

We thank the IHSAA for the sectional results and coach Borders for her report.
