Gymnasts tally highest score of the season at Moorhead
Perham Minnesota 222 2nd Avenue SE 56573

MOORHEAD — The Perham gymnastics team tallied their highest score of the season in a 145.625 - 139.475 victory over Moorhead.


The Yellowjackets scored 144.25 in a victory over Detroit Lakes in December.

Moorhead’s Maren Seljevold won the all-around with a score of 36.775, but Perham placed three gymnasts in the top six.  Alexis Peichel finished runner-up (36.275); Ashley Hokanson placed third (36.1); Maren Kugler, of Moorhead, was fourth (35.575), followed by Perham’s Jordan Martinson in fifth place (35.4).

The victory was a nice bounce back win for Perham after suffering their only dual loss of the season at Detroit Lakes last week.

Peichel finished second on floor, fifth on beam, third on bars and eighth on vault to pace Perham.

Hokanson had two second-place routines on vault and beam, while putting up marks for sixth place on bars and fourth on floor.

Martinson’s all-around performance consisted of third on vault, fourth on bars, and seventh on beam and floor exercise.

Adrienne Meyer won the uneven parallel bars competition with a high score of 9.3 and put up the same score in a third place beam performance.

Carly Breitenfeldt place second on bars and tied Meyer for third on beam. Perham had the top four balance beam scores.

Perham will participate in the Melrose Invitational this coming Saturday, before returning home next Tuesday, Jan. 28 to take on Fergus Falls.
