Gymnastics update

This from correspondent Terry Wood at the Tacoma Dome:

Newport wins its third straight state 3A/2A gymnastics title and ninth since 1994, edging Issaquah by 1.25 point (177.425-176.4). Newport beat Issaquah by 1.575 point to win last year’s state meet. The Knights opened by “bombing” on beam, as coach Farrah Griffin described it, when four Newport gymnasts fell during their beam routines. Newport rallied and had four gymnasts place among the top 25 in all-around.

Gwen Smithberg of Kennedy wins the all-around with a career-best 37.55. The 5-foot-6 junior took first on vault (9.5) and qualified to compete for individual crowns in three events. Smithberg placed fourth in the state meet in all-around last year.

Woodinville has looked good defending its 2007 title in the 4A meet now in progress. Sienna Viltz of Lake Washington turned in a glittering floor routine that earned a 9.5. Viltz won the Sea-King district all-around title last week.
