April 1, 2011
Liberty High School gymnasts Hannah Bergham, Tia Riley, Shauna Sarrett and Miranda Jones took to the 3A state gymnastics championships Feb. 18.
The top finishers in the preliminary round Feb. 18 advanced to the final round Feb. 19.
Although none of the Liberty gymnasts advanced to the finals, coach Lori Copenhaver said her gymnasts performed well, especially given the pressure of being in the state championships.
“Obviously, they were a little nervous,” she said. “They just worked really hard and went in with a good attitude.”
In the preliminary round on the floor, Bergam tied for 27th with a score of 9.1, followed by Riley and Jones, who tied for 54th and 70th with scores of 8.7 and 8.45, respectively. In the event, Bergam was only .575 points out of first place.
On the vault, Riley tied for 40th with a score of 8.325, and Bergam tied for 74th with a score of 8.025
On the beam, Bergam tied for 53rd with a score of 7.85, Riley tied for 58th with a score 7.75, Sarrett placed 68th with a score of 7.475 and Jones tied for 82nd with a score of 7.05.
