The South Central Gymnastics League championships were hosted by Tecumseh High School on Saturday, Feb. 20, and the Indians finished second in final point and league standings behind Saline.
Tecumseh went into the meet with five points from the regular season and earned another three points with its score of 134.4 in the championships, placing the Indians one point away from Saline (9 points). Jackson Lumen Christi placed third (7 points), Coldwater fourth (4 points), Parma Western fifth (2 points) and Adrian sixth (0 points).
“It wasn’t our best beam day but overall they still did well,” said Tecumseh coach Jen Posten. “Saline and Lumen definitely outcompeted us for the day.”
The invite started with the Indians competing on vault. Tecumseh was led by Alaina Carr with a third place finish with a score of 8.8. Carlee Swan placed seventh in the event with 8.5 while freshman Peyton Figurski was 10th with 8.3. 
Lumen Christi’s Shannon Daly placed first on vault with a score of 9.0.
Tecumseh senior Kelsey Bogrow placed third to follow on bars with a score of 8.55 while Swan placed fourth with 8.5. Carr placed ninth in the event with 8.05.  
Saline’s Clair Amstutz placed first on bars with a score of 9.150.
The Indians struggled on beam with Swan leading the Indians with a 10th place score of 8.6.
Coach Posten said that the Indians’ overall score was higher than the season average but they gave up some needed points on beam. “We gave away probably two points on beam, so had we have stayed on beam we would have been on our high end of scoring,” Posten commented. “But, it was an average day for us.”
Swan placed first in the floor event with a score of 9.025. Brianna Price placed eighth for Tecumseh with an 8.65 while Carr was ninth with 8.575.
Swan finished fourth overall in the All-Around with a score of 34.625. 
Saline’s Amstutz placed first in the All-Around with a score of 36.1.
“It’s the end of the season so we’re a little beat up,” said Posten. “It could have been better but I’m not completely disappointed either.”
Tecumseh qualified for regionals as a team and will send 14 gymnasts to Plymouth High School on March 5 for individual Regional competition. “They are both done at the same time and same day. We’ll see what happens. It’s nice. Regionals is a best case scenario because in the regular season you only get seven girls and you take your top four, where with regionals we get all 14 and we still take our top four. It should be our best meet of the season for how we end,” said Poston.
