Trojan gymnasts take 4th at state

The New Prague High School gymnastics team got off to a slow start, but finished strong in the last two events to place 4th in the Minnesota State High School Class A Gymnastics Meet on Friday, Feb. 23.

New Prague struggled on the bars in their opening rotation and also had a rough time on the balance beam, but had strong outings on the floor exercise and vault.

Senior Melanie Deutsch scored a 9.5 on the floor exercise and sophomore Alysha Gareis scored a 9.55 on the vault to lead the comeback.

Perham won the meet with a 149.6.
