Gymnasts hit high note in Bemidji

1 / 3
2 / 3
3 / 3

Just when it appears the Perham gymnasts have peaked, or can really do no better, barring perfection, they top themselves again.

The Yellowjackets scored a season-high 147.75 points defeating Bemidji by over 26 points.

Kelsi Vomacka continues to prove untouchable taking another all-around title with 38.50 points. Vomacka has been the all-around champion in each of Perham's meets this season.

Satera Montella was second with 36.30 and Carly Petersen made it a clean sweep in third with 35.90.

Vomacka was victorious on every event but the beam, where she finished second behind teammate Mikaela Eickschen.

No Lumberjacks finished top-three in any of the events.

The Yellowjackets get back into the swing of things after having two meets canceled and two meets rescheduled, including last week's big match-up with Detroit Lakes bumped to Friday night, Feb. 4.

This Saturday, Jan. 29, they travel to Martin County West, in Sherburn, Minn., for the State True Team meet. Sherburn is 45 miles west of Worthington near the Iowa border.
