GRANTSBURG — The Menomonie gymnastics team swept all four events in a 125.050-120.225 dual victory over Grantsburg on Thursday.

Chloe Oehler finished first in the vault (8.525), Alexis Anderson won the balance beam (9.075), Alexa Cummings finished first in the uneven bars (7.700) and Melody Greenwood took first in both the floor exercise (9.000) and all-around (33.600) competition.

Oehler was third in all-around and Cummings placed fourth.

Greenwood finished second in the vault, uneven bars and balance beam. Oehler took third in the floor exercise, fourth in the balance beam and fifth in the uneven bars. Cummings tied for fifth in the floor exercise, sixth in uneven bars and seventh in the vault.

“At this point we are still finalizing our five gymnasts on each event for conference and sections,” Menomonie coach Erin Liljedahl said. “Four places are pretty solid, but that fifth place is really up for grabs in all events. Performances from Halle Buhr, MyKenna Mogen and Alyssa Mogen tonight really showed that they want those spots and are ready to perform at that level if they are chosen.”

The Mustangs have a Big Rivers Conference triangular on Friday at Eau Claire Memorial/North and will return to competition next Saturday for the conference championships hosted at Eau Claire Memorial.
