It was the regular-season finale for the Dickinson High gymnastics team and the girls went out on top.

The Midgets finished won the Glenn Heiser Meet on Thursday night with a score of 148.650. Bismarck High finished second at 141.350 while Bismarck Century placed third with a 138.900. Dickinson finished evenly across the board, each event being 37.025 and 37.300.

“We haven’t hit that perfect meet but they did well,” Dickinson head coach Kent Van Ells said. “I guess I would say it was balanced. Our scoring was even across, as far as each event, which is not usually the case … but we still have some things we have to do better.”

Sophomore Acacia Fossum won the all-around and remains undefeated against North Dakota competition.

Finishing with a score of 38.3, it was her second straight meet with more than 38 points. Fossum tied for first place in the vault (9.650) with sophomore Keana Kudrna, and won both the balance beam (9.550) and uneven bars (9.750).

Kudrna (37.575) finished right behind Fossum in the all-around and took first place in the vault (9.650).

It was also a solid night for Dickinson’s two seniors, Mikaela Kessel and Jenna Mueller.

Kessel (36.875) finished fifth in the all-around and placed second on the floor (9.550) behind Century’s Jessica Gabriel (9.600). Mueller scored a career high on the bars (9.100) and took third on the beam (9.300).

The Midgets now prepare to host the West Region Meet, which is scheduled for 4 p.m. next Friday.

Dickinson has some aches and pains and a few gymnasts didn’t compete Thursday due to illness, Van Ells said. But there is nothing much to change in a week as far as preparation, he said, and hopes the Midgets can recover and heal in time for the meet.

“In a week’s time, it’s a matter of keeping going and being healthy,” Van Ells said. “If we can do that, we’ll be in it.”
