On Friday, February 11, the Southern Connecticut Conference for gymnastics took place, in which the Lions gymnastics team participated in. The event was held at Jonathan Law High School, and teams from the southern region of Connecticut, including Daniel Hand, Hamden High, and Mercy High School, were there as well.

Overall the Lions took fourth place out of the five complete teams that participated. They obtained a score of 116.4.

This means that the three of them battled other individuals from different teams on all four events: the uneven bars, the balance beam, the floor exercise and the vaulting exercise.

On the all-around scale, Carino scored a 30.85, Muoio scored a 30.1 and Lynch scored a 28.2. Besides these scores, the rest of the Lions team worked hard and gave their all in their performances at the Southern Connecticut Conference.

Senior captain Jessica Lavallee concludes on the season, “Even though we did not have a successful season like we had hoped, our team got stronger because we bonded over our wins and losses, and all of the meaningful yet funny memories on bus rides to meets will remain with the gymnastics team name.”

The Lions held their senior night on Wednesday, February 10, where they faced and beat cross town rival, Jonathan Law. The girls finished off their season strong with their best ability. The three seniors will certainly be missed, but the rest of the team will carry out the Lions gymnastics name and make next season one to remember.
