Railers fourth

at SM North

SHAWNEE MISSION — The Newton High School gymnastics team placed fourth with a season-high score Saturday at the 13-team Shawnee Mission North Invitational.

Lawrence Free State won the title at 106.45, followed by Olathe North at 103.1, Olathe West at 102.95 and Newton at 98.76.

Newton was led by Toria Thaw, who was fifth in the all-around at 34.81 and fifth on the uneven parallel bars at 8.46.

"For health sake we actually competed in two blocks," Newton coach JoAnne Thaw said. "This was the first meet for Shawnee Mission parents to watch a meet and the first meet for Olathe outside of their practice gym. We didn’t get to see everyone but we’re in the same block as Lawrence and Free State so had some great competition. We had our high score of the season and bright home two medals with Toria placing on bars and all-around. Berkley Roberson finally came back from an injury, but Elise Jantz had to drop out of all-around and only competed on bars. Elisa Fernandez had an amazing beam routine for a personal best of 8.6 and Cecilia Merlini made her debut on beam. Everyone was able to compete on the team today and that was a first for us. The meet is a good preview for state, but places could still be a little mixed."

Newton competes at the Shawnee Mission South All-Around meet at 5 p.m. Thursday. Newton hosts the state meet Nov. 7.
