Gymnasts back on the mat after long break

 

The Maple Lake gymnasts were back on the mat, Friday, Jan. 9, after a four-week holiday break, to take on Rush City on the road.
Although the Irish lost, Coach Kaitlyn Helmbrecht said it was a good starting point for their first meet back after such a long break.
Maple Lake junior, Jordan Sifferle, had probably the best day of all the Irish gymnasts. Her shining moment was a beautifully executed Pike Tsuk off the vault, Helmbrecht said.
According to Amy Van Deusen, gymnastics expert from About Sports, in a Tsuk the gymnast jumps off the springboard and performs a quarter turn onto the horse, then pushes off her hands and does a back flip, often with multiple twists, or even more than one flip. Sifferle performed a 1/1/2 back flip to impress the judges, Friday.
“Jordan just had a really good meet overall,” Helmbrecht said.
