Shorewood third, Shorecrest fifth in six-way gymnastics meet; three athletes injured

Sunday, January 24, 2010

Shorewood’s gymnastics team placed third, with Shorecrest fifth in a six-way gymnastics meet at the Cascade Elite Gymnastics Center January 16. Bainbridge High School won the competition with 156.35 points, followed by North Kitsap with 142.35, Shorewood with 125.7, Kingston with 118.05, Shorecrest with 115.8 and a team representing the three high schools in the Bellingham School District with 72.5.

Tyanna DeNova of Shorewood placed second on the uneven parallel bars with 8.4 points. Teammate Julia Hayes placed fourth on the balance beam with 7.6 points.

Shorewood's co-captain Kyla Riley (pictured, on crutches) broke her left fibula during floor warm ups. It was originally feared that she would need surgery, but instead she will be in a cast for three weeks and then a walking boot for 2-3 months.

Susan Riley, Shorewood coach, said, "Kyla is one of our top gymnasts, so that was a hit for our team. I am happy to report that the other Varsity members really stepped up to help make up for the lost points of not having Kyla complete."

The other SW girl injured is on the JV. She had a very slight sprain and was told to be out of play for a week to let the ankle rest. An athlete from Bainbridge suffered the most severe injuries, spraining both ankles so badly that she may be out of competition for the rest of the year.
