Kimball High is sending its full gymnastics team to the Central Coast Section championship meet Thursday, May 17, at Twisters Gymnastics in Mountain View.

The Jaguars qualified with a second-place score of 143.800 at the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League North finals on Thursday, May 10, at Gymntowne Gymnastics in Moss Beach.

Kimball finished just behind first-place Lowell High of San Francisco, which scored 146.000 points.

Kimball High sophomore Shaylyn Garay is defending her section title at the CCS meet. Last year, she became the first Kimball High athlete to win an individual section championship.

Garay placed second overall at last week’s SCVAL meet with an all-around score of 37.600, which includes a first-place mark in the floor exercise (9.700), second on the uneven bars (9.550) and third on the vault (9.050).

Teammate Vinessa Narvaez placed third overall (37.500), and Kimball’s Lauren Giles placed fifth (37.300).

Tracy High placed fourth at the league meet, but the Bulldogs’ score of 121.650 was short of the required team score of 129 or better to qualify the entire squad for the CCS finals.

Tracy did, however, qualify two at-large individuals.

Rachel Pombo made it with a 13th-place all-around score of 34.700. Her teammate Megan Jessen qualified in both the balance beam (8.400) and floor exercise (8.700).

West High’s Brianna Souza qualified in the floor exercise (9.100).



Junior varsity

Emily Torres-Gomez was the top gymnast from Kimball High in the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League North junior varsity meet on May 4 at Classic Gymnastics in Tracy.

She finished with a seventh-place all-around score of 34.500.

Teammate Allison Zurfluh placed 21st with an all-around score of 32.150, and was fourth place on the floor exercise, 9.200.

Tracy High’s top gymnast was Mikaela Beardsley with a 12th-place all-around score of 33.750, and West’s sole gymnast was Chantelle Ralston, who was 16th place with an all-around score of 32.750.

The team from Half Moon Bay was first place with a score of 170.700, and Palo Alto was second, 167.400.

Kimball was seventh, 151.500, and Tracy and West did not have full teams.
