A very small lineup put the Weston High gymnastics team in a tough situation in its opening meet of the season last week.
The Trojans, who have only five gymnasts on their team this season, had even fewer actually compete when they visited Greenwich on Thursday, Dec. 20. With a total score of 51.6 points, they were behind the hosts (114.75) and also lost to Staples (119.9) to start the season.
Weston had just its two most experienced gymnasts officially compete last week. Captain Natalie Hassett had the highest individual score for the Trojans in each event.
The vault was Weston’s best event, totaling 15.3 points. Hassett was just short of hitting the eight-point mark with a 7.9. Casey Redcay also competed for Weston and scored a 7.4.
Hassett also broke the seven-point mark on the uneven bars with a 7.1 and Redcay scored a 5.1
The balance beam was a challenge for Weston, which totaled less than 10 points. Hassett had a 5.1 and Redcay totaled 4.5
Weston fared better on the floor with both gymnasts scoring at least seven points. Hassett had her second highest score of the meet with a 7.5, as did Redcay with a 7.0. In all-around competition they totaled 27.6 and 24 respectively.
Weston is off until Jan. 5 when it takes part in the Pomperaug Invite at 9 a.m.
