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).
