Berries repeat as sectional champs

Logansport’s gymnastics team easily defended its sectional title Saturday at Lafayette Jeff.

The No. 5-ranked Berries won with a 106.5. Noblesville (103.4) and Harrison (97.125) also advanced to next Friday’s Valparaiso Regional.

It was the Berries’ second sectional title in a row, third in the last four years and 11th overall.

Logan sophomores Kelley Platt and Emily Pomasl placed 1-2 in the all-around. Platt won with a 37.875 and Pomasl was second with a 35.5.

Platt won all four events. On floor she had a 9.65, on beam she had a 9.5, on vault she had a 9.425 and on bars she had a 9.3.

Pomasl was second on floor (9.45) and third on vault (9.275) and bars (8.825).

Hannah Brandt was fifth on vault (9.15) and Maddy Rosenberger was sixth (8.925).

Logan coach Dannan Mordenti said the Berries started strong their first event of the day, bars, and continued from there.

“We came out pretty strong. We got the scores exactly where we wanted them on the first event,” she said. “After that we did really well. We had girls that stepped up and did what we needed to do to get the win.”

The Berries were particularly impressive on vault, where they recorded four of the top six scores on the day.

“That really bumped up our score to get over a 27 helps on the overall score,” Mordenti said.

The Valparaiso Regional is at 7 p.m. EST next Friday and will feature four of the top five ranked teams in state including the Berries.


Hoosier State Relays

Pioneer competed in the West Lafayette Hoosier State Relay individuals qualifier at Purdue University on Friday night.

For the boys, Blake Johnson placed third in both the high jump and long jump (5-10, 18-11.5). Jake Morris placed fourth in high jump (5-10). Dylan Bice placed fourth in the 800 (2:11).
