Tiger gymnastics win season opener

After canceling the annual invite to start the year, the Morris Area / Hancock / Chokio-Alberta gymnastics team opened the West Central Conference season with a win over the Long Prairie – Grey Eagle – Browerville Wolves Thursday, Dec. 8, in Morris.

MAHACA has three seniors on the squad this season, including Faith Butterfass, Julia Gillespie, and Haley Price.

“We’re a young team with two-thirds of the squad are 7th and 8th graders,” coach Trent Oberg said. “Everyone has been working hard. Coaches are very impressed with what they are seeing. The gymnasts are ‘coaching’ one another as they see areas to improve, it’s great to observe!”

The Tigers beat LP-GE-B 111.7 to 89.8.
