Senior Jackson Hegg placed first on three events and took the all-around title in her final home competition Saturday, Feb. 1 in a loss to Bemidji at the Minnesota Flyers Gymnasium.

The Lumberjacks have been on the rise cracking the top 10 in Class AA at No. 10 and defeated No. 7A Detroit Lakes 141.675 to 141.125.

The Jacks are a team built for the future with no seniors and only two juniors. Bemidji’s top two gymnasts are sophomores in Tatum Offerdahl and Lauren Berg.

Detroit Lakes has not competed with a healthy and full lineup all season and that continued Saturday with no Ellie Hultin or Jerzie Horner competing.

Hegg scored 38.075 to win the all-around by more than a full point over Offerdahl. DL’s Gabby Whitworth placed third with 35.55, one tenth more than Berg in fourth place.
