Rockwall’s Jenna Jefferey scored 38.20 for third place in the individual competition. Jefferey took home tied first place finish in the floor exercise, scoring a 9.75 in the compulsory meet. Rockwall’s Lindsay Loy was part of that three way tie with Keller’s Tiffany Martinez.

The Rockwall boys team took home fourth place with a score of 163.30 and Heath followed in fifth with 160.90.

Heath’s Blake Nono topped the RISD boys with a 55.30 individual all-around score for fourth place at the meet. Rockwall’s Robert Johnson followed in fifth with a 55.00.

“The guys were without two of their top gymnasts, but still performed well,” said RHS coach Cameron Sweny “Out of 12 full teams, we placed fourth and not far behind second and third. We will see how our team compares when we are full strength on Dec. 4 at the Bell Invitational in Hurst.”
