Gymnastics poll a bit off early in the season
Perham Minnesota 222 2nd Avenue SE 56573

Sometimes numbers do not tell the whole story.

Such is the case with the first Class A gymnastics poll this season, which ranks Detroit Lakes at No. 2 and Perham at No. 5, despite the Yellowjackets having defeated the Lakers twice already this early in the season.

Perham won the season-opening Jackie Mann Invitational by over 2.5 points, outscoring Detroit Lakes 141.95 - 139.35. Last Friday, the 11-time defending Section 8A champs defeated the Lakers 144.25 - 143.575 in a dual in Perham.

Someone needs to do their homework.
