Gymnastics: Sequim’s Pfeffer, Sweet earn district-qualifying scores

Seven athletes from a combined Sequim-Port Angeles gymnastics squad are headed to the West Central District finals after earning individual places at a sub-district meet Feb. 1 in Fife.

Fellow Roughriders Julienne Jacobs (floor exercise, second, and uneven bars, fifth), Cassidy Tamburro (balance beam, third, and uneven bars, fourth), Maizie Tucker (vault, seventh) and Halle Coventon (balance beam, eighth) also qualified for districts.

Capital (151 team points) and Kingston (144) took the sub-regional’s two team berths to state, with Timberline placing third (142) and Sequim-Port Angeles in fourth (139).

Kingston’s Mikka Yamane was the sub-regional top scorer in three of four individual events and scored 35.85 all-around points, missing a clean sweep by placing second on the balance beam.
