Townie/Rogers Co-Op Gymnastics Improving in 2nd Year

Other Monday Athletic Events listed


The second-year co-op gymnastics team from EPHS/Rogers competed in the teams second meet of the year in a tri-meet match with Mt. Hope and Westerly high schools on Sunday. The squad continues to build on their skills and confidence. The 6-member squad continues to impress and held their own in a tight meet finishing with a total team score of 109.05.  Westerly High won the competition with a 119.45 score.

“Carter Bessette, a sophomore from EP, has really stepped up this year,” said coach Casey Rapp. “Last year as a freshman, she only competed on floor. This year, she has consistently competed in the all-around and become our leading scorer,” added Rapp. Senior Captain Makena Petsch continues to contribute in the all-around and add more difficulty to her routines. Brettyn Newsome, senior captain from Rogers, has greatly improved on vault and added difficulty to her bar and beam routines to help increase her scores. MK Boudreau, a senior from EP, is a newcomer this year and has worked hard to compete in the all-around. Her floor routine is a crowd pleaser and she has become more consistent with her skills. Lily McKenna (freshman, Rogers) competed a new vault to add to the lineup. Jade Taswell (freshman, EP) had a huge improvement in her floor score.

Carter Bessette scored 8.05 on the Vault, 5.8 on the Bars, 7.35 on the Beam and an 8.4 on the Floor. MK Boudreau scored 7.65 on the Vault, 5.45 on the Bars, 5.75 on the beam and a 7.9 on Floor. Lily McKenna scored 10.1 on the Vault and 5.25 on the Beam. Brettyn Newsome scored a 7.05 on Vault, 4.55 on Bars, 6.3 on Beam and a 6.95 on Floor.
