Victory at Last: Gymnastics Beats Springfield at Home to Break Into the Win Column

Gymnastics (1-3) put on its best performance of the season over the weekend to secure its first win at Newman Arena against Springfield College. Leading the way with four individual victories in its categories, the Red beat the Spirit by a healthy margin, 191,075 to 186,300.

The team started off strong with its opening salvo on vault, taking the top three spots en route to a sweep of the competition. Sophomore Regina Walton finished first with a 9,725, freshman Sydney Beers came in second with a 9,700 and senior Miranda Lund earned third with a 9,625.

The Red’s domination continued after transitioning to bars, as every Cornell gymnast that competed in the event outscored Springfield’s best. Sophomore Melanie Stone was the head of the pack, scoring a 9,500. Beers again took second, posting a 9,475, and Walton placed third with a 9,425.
