Irish post season best score, Couette goes to state

Anyone looking at the Maple Lake gymnastics team in section competition on Saturday, February 19, would have found a bunch of very nervous, yet excited, girls. 
“This is one of the most stressful meets, partly because there are so many people,” explained Heather Schlueter. “But I guess that also makes it more exciting.” 
The meet took place in Watertown, where the team ended up rocking the event.

Gymnastics earns win over Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted

On Thursday, February 10, the gymnastics team had another home meet. Home meets are always exciting because it gives the Maple Lake gymnastics team a slight advantage. They know just where everything is and are used to all the equipment. Of course, one is hardly able to say this is the only reason for the team's success on Thursday at their last meet of the regular season. It took talent and skill as well. All in all, it turned out to be a close meet. Maple Lake came out victorious with 129.3. Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted wasn't too far off with a team total of 125.175.

Irish girls put up good fight against Kimball, Pierz

On Tuesday, February 8, the Irish traveled to Kimball for their second conference match-up with the Cubs.
The Irish, one of the shortest teams in the conference, needed to play well against the strong post play of the Cubs in order to put themselves in a position to win, and indeed they did just that.  
“We needed to keep their big girls off the glass, and for the most part we did,” said Head Coach Adam Ronnenberg. “It helped that one of their post players got into foul trouble thanks in part to our aggressive play around the basket.”

Wins and losses carry additional weight as all three teams jockey for section seeds.
