The Grand Ledge gymnastics’ team won its fifth straight league championship on Saturday.

Led by senior Christine Wilson, the lady Comets finished with a season-high score of 150.325.

The score was nearly 10 points ahead of second-place Haslett/Willamston/Bath and was its eighth title in the past 10 years for the CAAC, which is the Capital Area Activities Conference.

This victory also marked the 73rd straight victory, a state record that dates back to 2007, when Holt defeated them for the state title.

Wilson won the all-around competition for Grand Ledge and scored a perfect 10 on the uneven bars. She first scored a 10 on the bar two weeks ago, and that was the first time in state history that a gymnast got that score.

She also managed to get a 9.900 on the beam, a 9.700 on the vault, and a 9.675 on the floor exercise for an all-around score of 39.275.

That is state record, which was previously held by Grand Ledge star Alexis Byington, who had a 38.85.

Grand Ledge junior Lauren Clark finished second in the all-around with a score of 37.800 and took first in the floor exercise.

The comets had four of the top eight performers. Sophomore Presley Allison finished fourth with a score of 36.700 and junior Sara Peltier finished sixth with a score of 36.000.

Up next are regionals, which will be held on March 3rd, and then the state finals will be March 9-10.
