CHS Gymnasts win LaPorte Pairs Invite

Back To Front Page

The Chesterton gymnastics team got the 2013-2014 season off to a solid start on Saturday by bringing home the team title at the LaPorte Pairs Invitational.

“We won because we were really prepared,” Chesterton coach Lauren West said. “We are much further along at this point in the season than we have been before. They already had the skills and we just had to put the routines together.

“All 14 girls have really bonded well together and that’s really helped us.”

Individually, Brandi Tuzinski and Jordan Kearby teamed together to take the All-Around title.

“Brandi and Jordan had a great day,” West said. “Jordan had all new routines on the events she competed on (vault and bars). She was nervous but flipped both vaults and stood up her bar routine.

“Brandi is back to her old ways on beam with a 9.6.”

All in all, West was happy with her teams start to the season, but knows there is still plenty of work to do.

“Everybody that competed today just needs to get more confidence with the skills in each of their routines,” West said.
