Bulldogs slip past C-I gymnasts for M-8 2nd place

The Bluejackets slipped early on the Vault, and host Becker used that break to hold off Cambridge-Isanti 139.05-138.6 in the teams’ final Mississippi 8 dual meet of the season. The win had the Bulldogs finishing in 2nd place to 2012 champ Big Lake.

Cambridge-Isanti (3-2 M8, 6-2 overall duals) was led by the night’s top All-Arounder Britta Rud who totaled 35.5. points (9.35 on Beam, 9.225 on Floor). Michelle Ziebarth added an 8.925 on the Floor, with more Jacket highlights coming from Jessica Christensen (8.85 on Beam) and Hanna Haight (8.775 on Bars).

The Bluejackets are off from competition until the Feb. 17 Section 7AA Finals at St. Francis.
