The Marysville High School gymnastics team has its eye on an Ohio Capital Conference Central Division championship this winter.
“It’s not going to be easy as we will go up against teams such as Dublin Coffman, Hilliard Davidson and Upper Arlington,” said MHS coach Amber Calvert. “However, I have a hard-working and dedicated team.”
The Lady Monarchs will be led by a quartet of seniors.
They include Lindsey Itnyre (vault, beam, floor exercise), Lauren Deere (vault, beam, floor), Megan Erickson (bars, floor) and Makayla Tocci (vault, beam, floor).
Veteran juniors include Mary Calvert (vault, bars, beam, floor), Grace Keller (vault, bars, beam, floor), Katelyn Rabe (bars, beam) and Brooklyn Heller (floor).
Sophomores who are returning to the program include Hannah Bates (vault, bars, beam, floor),
Hannah Scheiderer (vault, bars, beam, floor) and Brynn Rychlik (vault, bars, beam, floor).
Newcomers to the team are freshmen Aleyna Smith and Chloe Baschnagel), juniors Yazmin Esparza and Kaylene Baschnagel and senior Morgan McKillion.
“We have five new members and with three solid all-around gymnasts, we will have strength in the beam and floor,” said Calvert.
