Meet 10: Centaurs bring home ECC regular season title

There are much bigger things to shoot for.

But the Woodstock Academy gymnastics team accomplished goal No. 1 on Monday.

The Centaurs captured the Eastern Connecticut Conference regular season crown with a 136.15-133.55 win over Norwich Free Academy at Thames Valley Gymnastics in Norwich.

Sophomore Olivia Aleman was again a key performer.

Aleman did not finish first in any of the four routines but had a balanced performance to capture first at the end.

She just edged out Norwich Free Academy’s Trinity Ambruso in the All-Around  by a tenth of a point, 37.45-37.35.

Aleman was second in the vault (9.25), second on the bars (9.4), second on beam (9.4) and third in floor exercise (9.4).

Her teammate, freshman Julia Kerr, was second on the floor with a 9.55 total and sophomore Allie Boyd had a strong beam routine, finishing third with a 9.1

The Centaurs, who finished the regular season with an 8-2 overall record and a 7-1 mark in the ECC, now shoot for their 13th straight league championship title with the meet taking place on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Thames Valley Gymnastics.
