The Irish gymnastics team earned another win on Tuesday, February 1, over Orono. It was an action-packed meet, with Maple Lake scoring high in some events, and nerve-wrackingly low in others. In the end, the girls walked away smiling.
Maple Lake dominated on vault when they took the top four places. “Vault has always been one of our strongest events,” said Heather Schlueter.
Jordan Sifferle scored 9.1, Nina Simonette had 8.85, Courtney Pribyl's event score was 8.55, and Bonnie Jude was right behind her with 8.525. Taking 6th place, Schlueter scored 8.125.
Lightning wrestlers added another successful week to their season, capturing the Wright County Conference title, going 2-0 in duals and picking up another first-place finish in individual tournament action.
Annandale-Maple Lake had a chance to spend most of the week preparing for two big matches Friday night, Feb. 4.
Many Maple Lake, Annandale, and A-ML alumni showed up at Annandale High School to watch the Lightning battle the Watertown-Mayer Royals for the Wright County Conference crown and the Big Lake Hornets for Section 6, Class 2A seeding preference.
Monday night, January 31, found the Irish at home against the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted Lakers for the first of three games at home this week.
The game got off to a slow start by both teams with neither looking very intense in their man-to-man defenses. However, the hot shooting of the Lakers began to roll, allowing them to take a 31-16 lead into the half.
