RICE LAKE – Even with an incomplete score, the Grantsburg co-op gymnastics team managed a top-10 finish.
In Saturday’s Rice Lake Invitational, Grantsburg finished with 100.975 points to place ninth while River Falls, 133.45, topped the standings, followed by Eau Claire, 129.65, and Stevens Point, 127.
“Going into this meet, our focus was not on the team score but trying to clean up on difficulty, stick landings and push new skills,” Grantsburg coach Kathy Lund said. “With two (competitors) missing from the varsity lineup, we ended up with an incomplete team score.”

Peterson came closest to a top-10 finish in the balance beam, tying for 11th with a 7.875, just 0.025 points behind 10th. Harmon, 6.275, was 38th; Benson, 6.0, was 41st; Blume, 5.925, was 42nd; and Kramer, 5.4, was 46th. Chippewa Falls’ Chloe Wingert won the event with a 9.075.
Harmon led Grantsburg in the uneven bars with a 6.725 to place 23rd. Peterson, 6.575, was 26th and Kramer, 4.4 was 44th. Tiede won the event with an 8.725.
