Bulletin-area trio competes in state gymnastics meet

Each of the three Bulletin-area high schools had an individual compete at the state gymnastics meets on Saturday. Here’s a look at how they fared.

Jordana Brady

Brady, a senior from Irondale, was making her second appearance in the state meet. She qualified for state in the all-around so she got to perform all four events.

Brady finished 16th in the Class AA all-around standings with a total score of 36.95. Her top individual event ended up being the floor exercise as she placed third with a score of 9.675.

Brady also got up on the podium in the vault via her sixth-place finish. She posted a score of 9.675. She added a 30th-place finish on the uneven bars with a score of 8.575 and scored a 9.025 on the balance beam. She did not register a place on the beam because she did not qualify for that event at sections.

A year ago, Brady finished fourth on the vault and 28th on the floor exercise.

Anna House

House, a senior from Mounds View, made it to state for the third time. She qualified in all four events and won the section all-around title.

At state, House was 21st in the all-around with a score of 36.8. Her best score came on the floor exercise, where she scored a 9.65 and finished fifth.

On the uneven bars, House took 16th with a score of 9.075. She added a 24th-place finish on the vault with a 9.35 and took 28th on the balance beam by scoring an 8.725.

Kia Kivi

A freshman from St. Anthony Village, Kivi qualified for the Class A individual meet for the second time. Kivi got to state by placing second on vault, bars and beam and third on floor at the section meet. She was also second in the all-around at sections.

At state, Kivi fell just outside the top 10 in the all-around. Her score of 36.675 landed her in 11th place.

Her top event was the uneven bars, where she finished 10th and scored a 9.25. She added a 9.225 on the vault for 21st place, a 9.2 on the floor exercise for 21st place and a 9.0 on the beam for 20th place.
