MAHOPAC, N.Y.— Mahopac’s varsity gymnastics team claimed the Division 2 title, recording 168 points to defeat second-place Wappingers (165.8) at Odyssey Gymnastics in Mahopac.
“The team held tough and responded to the challenge — great competition,” Mahopac coach Vin Collins said.
Callie Johanson was second in the all-around with a 36.55. She won the vault (9.375) and was second in the uneven bars (8.475) and floor exercise (9.5). The junior was also third in the balance beam (9.2).
Sydney Hughes was third in the all-around with a 33.35 and won the balance beam with a 9.35.
Jamison Castrataro, just an eighth-grader, was fourth in the all-around with a 32.825. She was fourth in the bars (7.9) and seventh in the vault (8.4).
Cassie Traina finished seventh all-around (32.275). She was third in the vault (8.95) and sixth in the floor (9.0).
Chloe Lee placed third in the bars with a 7.9 and tied for fourth in the beam (8.525).
“We qualified for the sectional championship as a team and we have five gymnasts qualified as all-arounds —Cassie, Callie, Sydney, Chloe and Jamison — but it was a total team effort,” said Collins, whose team competed in sectionals on Feb. 14 at Carmel High School.
