    Head Coach for the Lady Millers, Jody Ramey spoke about how the competition showed positives and negatives for her team. 

    “Certainly we lost our competition with both schools, with our team score of 87.15 to Bloomington South's Score of 102.95 and Edgewood's score of 96.35.” she said.  However, this is only our second competition of the season and we jumped nearly 10 points in our team score from last competition.  This is a huge improvement in the sport of gymnastics especially since these competitions were back-to-back without a practice in between.  I was very proud of this team accomplishment alone.”
