Big win for Mount Si gymnastics, plus college news from last night

Mount Si High School’s gymnastics team closed out the regular season on a very strong note at home in Snoqualmie on Thursday night, defeating the Issaquah Eagles in the final home outing for the senior class, including star Jenn Rogers.

Rogers picked up the win in the all-around, scoring 36.55, and helped Mount Si roll to a 168.7-156.75 win over Issaquah. Rogers led a top-three sweep in the all-around for the Wildcats, a top three which also included runner-up Abby Weber (34.55) and third-place Hailey Johnson (33.3).

Mount Si’s strength was in the floor event, where all seven Wildcat gymnasts finished better than the top Issaquah gymnast in that competition, and all also scored better than 9.0 in the event. Rogers won the competition scoring 9.85, followed by Samantha Holmes, who scored 9.7.

Weber led a top-four Mount Si sweep on beam, scoring 8.9 and ekeing out Rogers, who scored 8.8 and finished second in the event. Rogers also won the bars and vault events, with the senior scoring 9.55 on the vault.

Mount Si now heads to the Kingco 4A championships next weekend at Newport High School in Bellevue.
