Triway 134.85, Wadsworth 127.8
Triway won its second straight NEGC title with a win over Wadsworth, with contributions coming from all over.
"We had some really good returning gymnasts this year," Triway coach Angie Mullen said. "They put in a lot of work to upscale their routines and develop new skills. They are really just a hardworking group of girls; they strive to be perfectionists and they don't stop until their routines are acceptable to them.
"... This is a truly amazing group of young ladies, they work hard, they are so sweet, they root for each other and are just good girls. It couldn't happen to a better group and it's pretty exciting."
Addi Hudson, Alyse Stutz and Ana Neuman led the way for the Titans, each finishing in the top three of at least one event.
"It's really amazing," Mullen said. "I mean last year, we didn't even think it was an option to win the league, but with every meet we won, we just finally decided, 'hey, this is just what we are going to do.' This year, we went into it with a mentality that we wanted to go back-to-back and made that our goal."
Triway: all-around - Addi Hudson (1st, 35.0), Alyse Stutz (34.5); vault - Addi Hudson (1st, 9.2), Alyse Stutz (2nd, 9.0); bars - Addi Hudson (1st, 8.7), Alyse Stutz (2nd, 8.25), Ana Neuman (3rd, 8.15); beam - Alyse Stutz (2nd, 8.55); floor - Addi Hudson (1st, 9.0), Ana Neuman (3rd, 8.85)
