Young Antigo gymnasts have sights set high in '19-20
space
The Antigo varsity gymnastics team will officially swing into its season this Saturday, Dec. 7, competing in a meet at Lincoln High School in Wisconsin Rapids. 

With a very young, hard-working, and ambitious team this year, head coach Julie Langseth is looking forward to this season with hope and optimism.

After missing a state qualification as a team by one spot last year, the girls are hoping to make it back to the state meet, at which Antigo has become regulars, qualifying for the meet 14 of the last 16 years.

Coach Langseth sees a lot of potential in her young team and is looking forward to working with her athletes and seeing where it leads.

“It is early in the season, but this year we have more depth than previous years, especially in our underclassmen,” Langseth said. “Our whole team is very hard-working, but also calm and cohesive.”

Captains this year are the two seniors on the team, Maggie Winter and Chloe Decker.

“Although we only have two seniors this year, they both have a lot of varsity experience, which will be very helpful for the younger girls,” Langseth added.

Winter will be competing all-around for the squad this season, while Decker will help out mostly on beam and floor.

Sophomores Claire Musolff and Kaley Zarda, along with Winter, qualified individually to the state meet last year, and Langseth is hoping that the experience at state can help calm the nerves and lead the team this year. 

Musolff qualified on vault last year, and Zarda qualified on the floor exercise.  Both will be competing all-around for the Robins this year as well.

Rory VerHagen is the team's only junior and will be helping the varsity squad out on uneven bars and balance beam.  Other sophomores this year are Sarah Stickney and Rylee Schroeder.

“I am very excited to have so many underclassmen, and I am expecting them to really fill in our line-up and round out our weak spots in the team,” added Langseth.

After the team competes in Wisconsin Rapids this weekend, the girls will travel to Rhinelander on Saturday, Dec. 14. 

A little more into the season, the team will travel to an invitational in Tomah and then an invite in West Bend. Coach Langseth enjoys traveling to meets across the state to see new teams, and get in some varying competition.

“The meets all across the state early in the season are a great opportunity to see some new competition, and see what we should work on before the end of the season,” noted Langseth.

The girls competed in an inter-squad scrimmage this past week, and Coach Langseth is very happy with what she saw on Tuesday and is looking forward to beginning competition with her team.

“I am very encouraged and optimistic about our season after our inter-squad meet,” concluded Langseth.  “The team likes to compete and are all very driven. We seem much more prepared than in previous years, and I have a feeling this team will be willing to put in the necessary work to achieve our goals.”

The Robins will host their annual invitational on Saturday, Feb. 1, along with hosting the WIAA Division 2 sectional meet on Friday, February 28.

The meet in Wisconsin Rapids on Saturday will begin at 11 a.m.
