The Irish gymnastics team finished second to St. Louis Park at its eight-team Tumble in the Jungle, Saturday, Jan. 14.
Gracie Elsenpeter led scoring with four first-place finishes and one second, including a first-place finish in the all-around.
“This is my favorite meet of the year. This meet gave each team the opportunity to compete eight gymnasts per event, which is three more than normal. Watching the sportsmanship of all teams makes this a great meet,” coach Kaitlyn Helmbrecht said.
