The Farmington gymastics team turned in its highest balance beam score of the year and placed second in the floor exercise while placing third out of five teams Friday night at the Missota Conference Championships in Red Wing.
Farmington’s Kiana Lord turned in a clean sweep of all four events at Friday night’s Missota Conference meet against Chaska/Chanhassen.
Lord scored 9.0 or better in the vault, uneven bars and floor exercise en route to a season-best all-around score of 36.7 in leading the Tigers to a season-best team score in a 136.9-133.7 victory at the Instructional Services Center.
Farmington finally put an end to its streak of 133-point team scores Saturday at its own Farmington Invitational.
The Tigers scored a team-high 135.3 points to place second behind a talented Austin team’s 143.1 at the Instructional Services Center.
Farmington came out on top in the “36 seconds of Talent” exhibition at Saturday’s Faribault Invitational.
The goal of the special event was “to wow the crowd with any talent or skit you could come up with,” according to Farmington coach Lynn Bauman. The Tigers performed a circus act that featured a ringmaster, an elephant, a tiger, clowns and monkeys.
Rosemount’s season-best performance on the balance beam accounted for most of its margin of victory in a 139.9-133 non-conference win over Farmington in a holiday break meeting Friday night in Rosemount.
Coming home with a victory isn’t typically in the cards for any of the Missota Conference gymnastics teams when they make their annual trip to Northfield.
Instead, Farmington made it their goal to relax and have fun.
Kiana Lord won three events and the all-around competition in leading the Farmington gymnastics team past Red Wing 126.04-122.075 in its first Missota Conference dual meet of the season last Tuesday at the Red Wing Gymnastics Center.
Those who reminisce about the ‘90s may remember a No Fear t-shirt that proclaimed second place to be the “first loser.” Nadia Lorencz doesn’t look at it that way, even though she’s made a habit of placing second on the biggest of prep stages over the last year.
Nadia Lorencz will have a much busier schedule at this year's Class 2A State Gymnastics Meet. Lorencz qualified in three events, as well as in the all-around, while leading the Tigers to a third-place finish at the Section 3AA meet Thursday night at Park High School in Cottage Grove.
