Jessica Lord returned to competition after sitting out last season due to an ACL tear and other torn ligaments. She has come back stronger than ever and contributed to Pinkerton’s team score on the vault, bars and floor. She has been an inspiration to her teammates. It was a very hard road getting back and many doubted that she would return to competition. Her scores helped the Astros score a 139.5, which topped its season high for a regular season meet.

Brett Wilson went 3–0 on the week, helping the Astros defeat Nashua North in a dual meet on Wednesday, and Spaulding and Nashua South in dual meets on Saturday. He earned all three of his wins by pins.
