The gymnastics team took 7th place at the state preliminary meet on Saturday. In order to compete at the preliminary meet, teams had to meet a minimum score. Out of 64 teams in the state, Cartersville was one of 16 teams who met this requirement. The top six schools– Buford, Carrollton, Forsyth Central, Roswell, Lambert and Colquitt– will compete in the state finals this weekend.
Individually, Sydney Lauryn Barrett qualified to compete at the state finals on the vault by finishing in the top 12 on the event. The competition will be held at Westminster School on Friday night at 7pm.
