MARYSVILLE — Miami Trace Gymnastic team placed third at the Marysville competition Wednesday Dec. 14.

Worthington Kilbourne won the quad meet (125.5), Marysville took second (122.85), Miami Trace placed third (116.15) and Mechanicsburg completed the placings with a 111.45 team score.

Miami Trace senior McKinley Kelley improved her first meet scores on three events to which she was awarded a third place tie on uneven bars (7.55) with cross town teammate, Washington High School’s Abby Rose.

“The two spend hours training together yet, representing their home schools, (they) end up competing against one another at competitions,” head coach Susan Holloway said. It’s an example of a having a friendly rivalry with training partners, Holloway said.

According to Holloway, the two have grown up together taking classes and being on the competitive team at the local gymnastics gym for many years. Both are seniors this year.

With 39 gymnasts competing at the Marysville meet, the local gymnasts showed up in the rankings and stood to receive their placings.
