Due to the extremely cold weather, Buffalo schools were closed for two days. The Bison gymnastics team only had one day to prepare for this meet. Buffalo was facing Cambridge, who also didn’t have school those two days.
“It felt kind of rushed,” said Senior Amber Doebler, “but luckily we were in the same boat as Cambridge, seeing as they didn’t have school either.”
The rushed practice didn’t seem to affect their scores. The top scores of the night were: Eighth grader Alex Zeiss with a 9.375 on floor, Senior Michaela Perz with an 8.575 on beam, and Freshman Allie Merz with two top scores on bars having an 8.3, and on vault with an 8.525. The final team score for Varsity was 133.65. Junior Varsity finished with a 127.2, which is the second highest JV score in Buffalo’s history. Both Varsity and JV scores were the best scores all season.
“It really hurts us to not have practice,” said Coach Driscoll-Nelson, “so it was surprising we did as well as we did.”
