Miranda Schmitz returned to the line-up Thursday and finished second in two events as Perham beat their biggest rival Detroit Lakes, 145.65-140.65.

Schmitz, the Jackets lone senior, injured her elbow in December. She had a 9.3 on the bars and a 9.0 on the beam in her first meet back.

Kelsi Vomacka won the All-Around with a 37.4 and she took first in three of the four events (vault, floor, beam). Jenna Schmitz won the bars with a 9.7 and was runner-up in the All-Around with a 36.7.

Princeton

It wasn't exactly a stellar field Saturday at the Clemensen Invitational in Princeton last Saturday, but in gymnastics, it's not who you beat, but what you score. Perham had their second highest score of the season in taking first place with a 145.105. Coon Rapids was second with a 139.30.

Vomacka won the All-Around with a 36.705 without winning any of the four events. She was second on the vault, the beam and floor exercise.

Jenna Schmitz won the bars with a 9.65 and finished third in the All-Around (36.35) and Mikaela Eickschen was first on the floor with a 9.45 while finishing fifth in the All-Around (35.50).
