SHAWNEE MISSION — Without its top scorer for the past two meets, the Newton High School gymnastics team placed 10th out of 13 teams Saturday at the Shawnee Mission North Invitational.

Olathe East won the team title at 103.625, followed by Olathe Northwest at 101.575, Shawnee Mission Northwest at 100.750, Shawnee Mission East at 99.725 and Lawrence at 99.5. Newton scored an 83.65.

The Railers claimed just one medal in the meet. Toria Thaw placed sixth in the vault at 8.8.

Newton has just two competitors out of the three needed for a full team score in the uneven parallel bars.

“We showed a one-point improvement from last Tuesday,” Newton coach JoAnne Thaw said. “Hopefully, we'll be full strength this Tuesday and get our team score back up. Allie (Casey) and Toria both improved their vaults and Toria had an improvement on bars as well as her all around score. This is the first year for both of them so we get excited when we see improvement like that.”

Newton competes today at the Olathe South Invitational and hosts the Newton Invitational noon Saturday at Ravenscroft Gym.
