Trojan Gymnasts and coaches are state bound!

Tatum Zimmerman, Writer

A section championship was a great way for Trojan gymnastics to close their season. They later went onto the MSHSL State tournament and placed 6th. The gymnasts who made it to the individual portion of the State tournament include Allie Eischens, Ella Barness, Samantha Solheid, and Ellie Morris. 

The Trojans added up some big wins in the regular season. In January, they beat Chaska/Chanhassen 134.700 to 125.050. Later on, they would knock off Orono with an impressive score of 142.225. Also, towards the end of February, they pulled out a close win to Lakeville North who they would later defeat again to win the 2AA Section.

The team was head coached by Mark Morphew in company with assistant coaches Doug Amundsen and Ann Niedermayer. There will be one senior graduating, Allie Eishens and Brenna Solheid. The star on the balance beam will be attending St. Thomas next fall. Congrats to all the gymnasts on an excellent 2021 year! They are a young and ambitious group that hope to repeat their success next season.
