Stricken by injury and illness, the Stewartville gymnastics team limped to a season-low score of 116.475, placing eighth at the nine-team Class A, Section 1 meet on Feb. 24. No. 1 Pine Island won the title with 144.825 points. Top Tiger scorer Kim Greiner succumbed to an illness and did not have the strength to compete on the final rotation. Greiner scored an 8.425 on the vault, a 7.075 on the bars and a 7.55 on the beam, bowing out of the floor with a 23.05 all-around total. "The timing for injury and illness spreading through our team was not ideal," Tiger coach Courtney Severson noted. Good news did come from the section tourney, as Stewie won a MSHSL Academic Gold Award with a team GPA of 3.768. Kim Greiner earned All-Section 1A honors on the vault, bars, beam, floor and all-around while Emilee Otto (ACL injury mid-way through the season) was recognized as All-Section on the vault. Greiner and Otto also earned All-Conference honors.
