Sam Gunn is gaining ground just at the right time on the mat.
With the FCIAC gymnastics title meet approaching — and rescheduled for Feb. 16 due to the approaching Storm Nemo — Gunn had a personal best performance all-around, scoring 34.45 for second place at the Wave’s last meet of the regular season.
Better news for DHS, as Gunn goes, so goes the Wave, scoring its highest numbers so far this winter, 130.500, to beat host New Milford with 128.450 on Tuesday.
Wilton took the meet with 138.550.
Gunn also had her personal best outing on beam scoring 8.8 for third place, and a best on bars with an 8.65 for fourth.
Kajsa Lundeen placed fifth in the all-around with a 33.60, her personal best as well.
She took second on floor with an 8.65 and tied for fourth on beam with 8.7, also personal best scores.
Caroline Congdon did well on beam with an 8.1, and placed eighth all-around with 31.10, her best this season.
Said coach Ellie Southworth: “Sara Petti continues to shine on bars scoring 8.05 (ninth place), and placed ninth all-around with a 30.350, her best all-around this season.”
Marya von Schmidt performed well on vault with an 8.0.
“Despite loosing Julia Murray for the season due to an injry, the team is holding their own with five competitors and performing as well as can be expected,” Southworth said looking to the postseason. “We look forward to FCIACS.”
