"Jaelynn Walker was a true competitor during this meet," Chambersburg coach Lexie Bowie said. "She had one of the best meets that I've seen out of her.  She was calm, collected, super focused, and was a real leader to the team.  She is an incredible athlete and I can't wait to see what she does next season."

Slemmer claimed the all-around title with a second-place finish in the floor exercise, scoring an 8.1, and two third-place finishes on bars and beam, scoring 7.75 and 8.1, respectively. Walker took gold in on floor and beam scoring 8.3 and 8.2 respectively.

Chambersburg's Abby Zeger and Jocelyn Kibbe performed in the Silver Division, placing eighth and 12th, respectively.

"Abby Zeger is always a consistent performer for us," Bowie said. "She did a great job of focusing on the task at hand and showing the judges what she could do."

Waynesboro's Alex Stoops was the only area performer to compete in the top Diamond Division, and placed seventh.
