Tahoe Gymnastics fare well at Reno meet

Starz and Stripes Invitational hosted a meet last weekend at the Reno Hilton where more than 12 different gyms came out to participate, including the Tahoe Gymnastics girls’ team.

The star of the meet was Tahoe’s Haley Marchini, who took a gold medal in vault with a score of 8.50, gold on beam with her score of 8.775 and gold in the all-around. Marchini also earned a silver on floor exercise and a bronze in bars.

A strong floor routine gave Kaelyn Dion a 8.600 and Jo Herrera delivered a 7.957 on the beam. Morgan Murphy had a clean vault with a 7.800, while Harley Vane took sixth place on vault with a score of 7.600.

Glory Pillsbury, Michele Shirley and Nicola Sejkorova had good meets with all three competing at level six for the first time. Shirley did well on vault, scoring a 8.625; Sejkorova followed her with a nice vault for a score of 8.375 and Pillsbury wasn’t very far behind with a 8.000.

“I thought the meet was challenging because we only had three weeks to get ready for level six,” Pillsbury said.

The Tahoe Gymnastics’ girls’ team has another meet this weekend at the Reno Hilton.
