GYMNASTICS

Pinkerton opened its season Dec. 16 with a home meet hosted at Granite State Gymnastics. Visiting teams included Manchester West, Central and Memorial.

Pinkerton once again showed that they are after another state title. They scored a 139.5, which topped its season high score of the regular meet season in 2011, where they were the undefeated state champions.

Freshman Samantha Day made her debut on the vault, where she took first place with a 9.05. She also placed fourth on the balance beam with an 8.8.

Freshman Jackie Bogazcyk also made strong contributions on the vault, beam and floor. She placed third on the balance beam with an 8.95.

Brittany Capozzi, sophomore, took third on bars, tied for second on floor, and won the beam with a 9.2.

Captain Kylie Lowell, a junior, captured third on floor with a career-high score of 8.8.

Sophomore Amanda Cioli competed in all four events, placing fifth on beam, second on vault, second on bars, tied for second on floor, and placed second all around with a 35.1.

Kaylee Pacunas, who was a standout freshman in 2010 and took her sophomore year off, has returned as a junior and is proving she is one of the top all-around gymnasts in the state.

She took third on the vault, second on beam, while snatching first on the bars, floor, and the all-around with a 35.5.

The highlight of the night for Pinkerton was seeing junior captain Jessica Lord return 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.
