The state’s No. 6 and No. 8 ranked teams, Michigan City and Chesterton, did not survive last week’s Chesterton Sectional.
The Berries’ high score this year of 110.9 has only been bested by Valparaiso (112.425) and Fort Wayne Bishop Dwenger (111.95).
“It’s going to be tough but I think that our routines are strong and our girls are strong and they know what they have to do to get the scores,” Logan coach Dannan Mordenti said. “We’ve never been up north so we don’t know how scores work up there, so it’s just going to kind of be a learning experience for us.”
The Berries enter an experienced group after last year’s tournament showing and a few of them have a lot of club gymnastics experience as well.
“We’re all kind of used to it,” Pomasl said. “Since there’s four out of the top five there, one of us is going to be out, so we’re just going to try to stick our routines in cleanly and hopefully the scores fall into place.
“We’re just trying to get everything together and have a good meet just so we can get to state.”
Platt was the sectional all-around champion with a 37.875 last week and won all four events. Her high all-around score of 38.25 this season ties Portage senior Danielle Solis for the top mark in the state this season.
Pomasl, who has the seventh highest all-around score in the state at 37.7 this season, placed second in the all-around at last week’s sectional and she was also second in the all-around at last year’s regional.
Also competing tonight for the Berries will be junior Maddy Rosenberger on vault, junior Ashlyn Brown on beam, sophomore Hannah Brandt on vault and bars, sophomore Elizabeth Nies on floor and freshman Alexa Abbott on bars, beam and floor.
