Marshfield – SPASH traveled to Marshfield Thursday night for a triangular meet with the Tigers and Rapids, and  the Panthers continued to dominate, winning their third meet of the season.

Heidi Zorn led the way for SPASH, winning the floor exercise and finished first in the all-around. Zorn also nabbed second place finishes in the vault and balance beam.

Paige Kurszewski was third on the uneven parallel bars and balance beam and fifth in the vault.

Libby Pieczynski finished second on the floor, and teammates Abby Chojnacki, Amanda Byrum, and Sarah Thimmesch placed third, fourth, and fifth, respectively, to sweep the floor exercise for SPASH.

Thimmesch was also third in the vault and Byrum was 4th on the bars.

Additional medalists for SPASH were Lacie Ligman on the beam and Janelle Nelson on the bars.

Coach Jennifer Bellmer-Callope was quite pleased with her team’s continued excellence.

“Our team did okay overall.  We felt a looked a little frantic because of the new format of how the conference meets are now going to be run.  I was pleased with how well our team cooperated with each other with the overlap of Varsity and JV.  They truly acted as a team unit! “

“The highlight for me was Libby Pieczynski’s floor routine.  She has been fixing a lot of detailed things and her scores this season have been showing…..not to mention that she hasn’t done a floor routine in a very long time due to knee injuries!”
