The Dickinson High gymnastics collected the first and runner-up placements in the all-around during the North Dakota state meet.
Dickinson isn’t done collecting accolades.
The Midgets had three gymnasts receive all-West Region honors - juniors Acacia Fossum, Keana Kudrna and eighth-grader Ayanna Fossum.
Acacia Fossum claimed her fourth state all-around title during the 2015 state meet. She also won the state uneven bars, floor exercise and balance beam and placed runner-up on the vault. With the four individual titles, the junior now has won 11 state championships, which is tied for third most with Cassie Osborn of Fargo South in North Dakota gymnastics history.
Kudrna, who suffered a stress fracture in her right foot before the start of the season, had to miss 10 weeks. However, Kudrna returned and finished runner-up in the all-around during the state meet.
Ayanna Fossum - the younger sister of Acacia - ended the state meet with a sixth-place finish in the all-around.
Minot had the most all-West Region gymnasts with five. The Majettes won the West Region and state team titles.
