Bears 3rd; Contino injured

-->

DANIELSON, Conn. — An injury to Abbey Contino put a damper on the ECC Championship meet and the Stonington High gymnastics team finished third as a team. Four teams competed in the regular season.

Contino injured her knee during the meet and did not compete in the vault or on the floor Wednesday night at Deary’s Gymnastics.

“She’s going to have an MRI, but I think she’s done for the year,” Stonington coach Leslie Gomes said.

Gomes said she was hoping for a better score than the 114.5 points the Bears posted in their third-place finish.

“The beam was really weak tonight,” Gomes said. “We’ve been really good on the beam lately. Maybe it was just our night to be off after all being so good for a while.”

The Bears totaled 27.30 points in the beam.

“It’s too bad because we were good on the floor and really good in the vault even without Abbey in those events,” Gomes said.

Woodstock Academy won the meet with 150.4 points. The Centaurs won the Open state tournament the last two seasons.

Stonington totaled 38.15 in the vault and 32.05 on the floor.

Stonington freshman Grace McCarthy scored in each event and finished 12th in all-around (30.50).

McCarthy was 15th in vault (7.85), 11th in bars (7.40), 14th in beam (7.00) and 11th on floor (8.25).

Megan Roberts was 11th in vault (8.10), 13th in beam (7.20) 13th on floor (8.00) and 16th in all-around (26.30).

Paige Hackney placed 13th in vault (8.00), 10th on floor (8.35) and 16th on beam (6.70).

Meredith Hallisey was 18th in bars (6.00) and 19th in vault (7.20).

Gabby Gooden finshed 19th in both floor (7.45) and all-around (23.25).

Hannah Capizzano placed 18th in beam (6.40) and 23rd in bars (3.10).

Contino was 10th in the bars with a 7.50.

The Bears will have to wait until Wednesday before they will know if they qualified for the Class S state tournament which will be held on March 1.
