Rhinelander and Mosinee gymnasts take top spots at GNC meet
WISCONSIN RAPIDS -
Last year, the Hodags came in second in the conference (small schools division) by one point. They wanted to change that this year.

"We came in to this meet feeling fairly confident just because we've had a really good season and we came in undefeated," said junior Raven Sturtevant.

Coaches Heather Sturtevant and April Denis made sure the girls didn't get too confident along the way.

"Sometimes we get ahead of ourselves and think 'oh, we've got this in the bag', but they keep us in 'don't get ahead of yourselves', just focus on the now," said junior Mikayla Evenstead.

That meant focusing on the goal the team set, and almost reached.

"Our goal this conference meet was to get 120 and we got 119," said senior Stephanie Keuster.

Mosinee came in second with a score of 113.475. That score showed just how much their team is improving.

"This last Tuesday, we got our last team high with a 108 and this meet was just points above that which was really relieving," said junior Lydia Ruthe.

Junior Lydia Ruthe took the top spot in the all-around, just ahead of Keuster and Sturtevant for Rhinelander.

"I thought that I was going to get third, but I think my bar score and vault score really helped me come out on top there," said Ruthe.

Mosinee head coach Kris Schlei won coach of the year for the small schools division. That was voted on by the other coaches. But the team couldn't agree more.

"My team is really great, we're really supportive of each other and I think that's the best part," said Ruthe.

The Indians will see the Hodags again this Thursday at the sectional meet in Antigo.
