Under-classmen Step up to Fill Varsity Spots.

The Buffalo Gymnastics team spent last week gearing up for the take on of Cambridge Isanti: the team took a mental approach by each athlete setting their own measurable goals for tonight’s meet. The dual meet is held on December 17Th 2009, and on the following Saturday the team will head to St. Cloud Tech to compete in the 8 team invitational. Last year Buffalo lost to Cambridge and they didn’t compete at St. Cloud Tech last year. The younger varsity will have to step up due to injuries of the upper-classmen.

“It’s frustrating not being able to go 100 percent,” said Junior Danielle Nordin. “But also gives the under-classmen a chance to step up and take on the responsibility of being a varsity competitor.”

Varsity competitors Nordin and Alicia Malawicki were unable to compete do to injuries last week. Malawiki will try to overcome that injury and compete in bars. Megan Durst an all around gymnast is coming off of a hamstring injury and is only able to compete on the vault and bars. Sophomores Paige Habisch and Nadja Vragovic are the all around varsity competitors (floor, bars, beam, and vault). Eighth-grader Brooke Simonson is stepping up to fill in the shoes of the injured athletes and will be competing in the all around also.
