In her first state tournament appearance, Waconia sophomore Ella Hommer represented the Wildcat gymnastics squad at the Class A individual championships last Saturday, Feb. 22 at the University of Minnesota Sports Pavilion.
Hommer competed on the balance beam, after a strong Section 2A performance the week before, where she finished second with a score of 9.525 on Feb. 15.
At state, Hommer was evaluated by four judges who awarded her scores of 8.20, 8.15, 8.20, and 7.70 for a total average score of 8.175. That score placed her 29th of the 32 individuals competing in the event. The beam title eventually went to Austin senior Sela Fadness, who scored a 9.675.
Look for a full wrap up of the Waconia gymnastics season in the coming weeks.
