Northfield wins Class AA gymnastics title

Northfield Booster Club sign: state championsLooks like the Northfield Booster Club is going to have to update its sign on the south edge of town that lists Northfield Raiders state champions. 

Last night, Northfield won the Class AA gymnastics title. On the Minnesota State High School League website, 2010 State Girls’ Gymnastics Meet:

MSHSL164100Gymnastics_2010A new champion prevailed in Class AA. Northfield emerged out of a tight pack to bring home its first title with a score of 148.325. The Raiders were in third place going into the final rotation – behind Lakeville North and Cambridge-Isanti – but recorded a meet-high 37.925 on vault to pull away with the title.

The Raiders also scored the meet’s highest score on beam, with a 37.175. On floor and bars, Northfield scored a 36.625 and 36.6, respectively. Meaghan Howell led the team on vault, 9.7, and floor, 9.475. Sveta Mason recorded the team’s highest score on beam, with a 9.55, and on bars, with a 9.475.

Footnotes:

  • The Northfield Gymnastics Club has a website.
  • Although weightlifting is not a MSHSL sport, shouldn’t the Raiders’ multiple state championships (5?) be listed on the Boosters’ sign?
