Gymnasts prepare to spring into action


Coach: Bryn Lashmet

Key returners: Juniors Jade Bereman and Grace Reeb

Outlook: The Spartans lose half their roster and return two state qualifiers. However, Bereman and Reeb showcased some of the top moves at state last year. If Bainbridge can find a few more to fill in the team, the Spartans can have another successful season.

Schedule: Dec. 12, 6 pm at Port Angeles; Dec. 15, 6 pm at Kingston

North Kitsap

Coach: Kris Goodfellow

Key returners: Seniors Jordyn Lovett, Kelsey Derr and Wren Mason-Todd

Outlook: NK is coming off a top-five finish at state. Luckily, the Vikings core will be seniors this season with a final push for a state title. If the Vikings can handle business during the regular season, they can be dangerous at state.

Schedule: Dec. 15, 6 pm at Kingston; Jan. 9, 6 pm at Kingston; Jan. 23, 6 pm at Port Angeles


Coach: Sheila Moore

Key returner: Analee McDonald

Outlook: Kingston lost its top gymnast and a few others too. Therefore, a small squad has gotten smaller. Kingston returns McDonald but will need support from some new faces if it wants to be competitive.

Schedule: Dec. 15. 6 pm, Bainbridge and North Kitsap; Jan. 9, 6 pm, North Kitsap and Port Angeles; Jan. 23, North Kitsap; Jan. 23, at Port Angeles.
