On Monday, Feb. 22, the Bulldogs gymnasts ended their season with an awards banquet at Hill Top Restaurant.

The varsity team and coaches voted on awards for the team members. Awards were: most effort, most improved, most positive attitude, and most valuable.

The ďmost effort awardĒ went to Michelle Wolbeck. She always tried new skills even if she thought they were not possible.

Jenni Mayer earned the ďmost improved awardĒ for learning how to do more difficult skills and putting them in her routine.

The gymnast earning the ďmost positive attitudeĒ honor was Camille Flanders. Flanders always made the team laugh and helped everyone become better gymnasts.

Krysta Larson was voted ďmost valuableĒ because of her strong routines and help to the team.

There were two new letterwinners this year. They were Jenni Mayer and Amy Mueller.

This year coach Dutcher has decided to retire from coaching after her 26th year. We will miss her as a coach. We will also miss our two seniors Camille Flanders and Jen Moser who will graduate this year.

The junior varsity gymnasts voted on two awards the week before the banquet. The awards were most effort and most positive attitude. The coaches also voted on four awards, most improved on vault, bars, beam, and floor.

The award for most effort went to Amy Mueller. She always tried her hardest no matter what she was doing. The most positive attitude award was a tie between Amanda Mayer and Amy Mueller. Both girls made the best out of every meet and practice.

The gymnast who was voted most improved on vault was Amy Mueller. Amy was also voted most improved on beam. Voted most improved on floor was Tessa Miller. The coaches voted Jenni Yungk most improved on bars.
