Youth athletics: Gymnasts, bowler earn medals in SGOA


The Bounders swept the floor exercise podium with Anna Krebs grabbing the silver and Bostian, Christian and Lahr tying for bronze.

In the Level 1 All-Around, Christian was consistent in each event to bring home a silver medal behind Crawford.

Like Crawford, Krystyn Mummey used a solid performance in every event to grab the Level 3 All-Around title. Mummey won on the uneven bars and took third on the beam to propel her to a win.

McKenna Zellers grabbed a gold in the uneven bars and a silver in the floor exercise in Level 3.

In Level 4, Amelia Wary took home a gold in the all-around and a bronze on the vault. Kayla Pietkewicz won the vault and tied Emily Moyer for bronze in the floor exercise. Julianna Huffert finished second in the vault for a clean sweep by the Bounders.

In all, Bounders gymnasts brought home 34 total medals including 15 gold medals.

"I think (the State Games) will improve their work ethic and dedication to the sport and their cohesiveness," Visnosky said.

Many athletes that succeed in their sport start at a very young age and Mifflinburg's Keanna Delp is no exception.

The incoming freshman at Mifflinburg started bowling when she was 3 and is starting to reap the rewards of a life in the lanes.

Delp grabbed a silver medal at the State Games in the 12-15 Female Handicap division. In a handicap event, a percentage of each bowler's score is added to their final score in an attempt to level the playing field. Delp finished the qualifying round of the event atop the leaderboard with a total of 1,421 pins after ending with an 1,103 with a handicap of 318.

In her first game, Delp bowled a 232, the highest single round in qualifying.

"Starting off (with a 232), I was excited," Delp said.
