Three twists and turns in gymnastics: a big weekend, rankings, honor roll

One of biggest days of every high school gymnastics season took place Saturday.

Two notable meets were held: the MGJA Invitational, which took place at Farmington, and the MGGOA Invitational at Park Center. The MGJA is put on by the Minnesota Gymnastics Judges Association, and the MGGOA is organized by Minnesota Girls Gymnastics Officials Association.

Lakeville South, ranked first in Class 2A, won the MGJA with a team score of 146.25, nearly three-quarters of a team point better than runner-up (and No. 2 in 2A) Owatonna, which posted a score of 145,55. St. Michael-Albertville was third with 143.4, and 2022 Class 2A champion Wayzata was fourth at 143.1. St. Michael-Albertville's Jackie Bergeron won the all-around title with a 38.1.

The MGGOA was split into two divisions, based on each team's results to date. Apple Valley/Eastview took first place in the first division with a team score of 136.775 with Breck finishing as runner-up at 134.3. Osseo won the second division with a 122.15 score. Minneapolis Washburn came in second at 116.125. Washburn's Parker Stob won the overall all-around title at 35.625. Breck's Anika Golla won the first-division all-around championship, scoring 35.475.
