MARSHFIELD — The Marshfield gymnastics team won only one of the four events but used a strong team-effort to knock off Wisconsin Rapids 128.525-114.975 in a Great Northern Conference dual meet Thursday night at Marshfield High School.
Olivia Tierney won the floor exercise with a score of 9.45 and was second in the vault, uneven bars, and balance beam to finish second in the all-around for the Tigers.
Marshfield (2-2 in the GNC) had the second- through fourth-place finishes in the vault, uneven bars, and balance beam and five of the top six finishes in the floor to pile up team points and go on to the victory.
Tia Dorshorst won the all-around with a score of 36.225. Tierney came in second with a score of 35.3. Macey Smith was third, Megan Smith fourth, and Isabelle Jensen fifth for the Tigers.
