NEWPORT/EAST PROVIDENCE — The Rogers/East Providence High School co-operative gymnastics team had a busy and productive few days last weekend, going 2-1 in back-to-back regular season quad meets held Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 22 and 23.

At Strive Gymnastics in Somerset, Rogers/East Providence defeated host Mt. Hope as well as Middletown but lost Portsmouth in a meet held Saturday, Jan. 22.

Portsmouth was tops overall with a team score of 128.85. The locals tallied a team total of 127.75, bettering Mt. Hope’s 127.1 and Middletown’s 125.75.

Katy Serth paced R/EP with a 33.65 all-around total after receiving an 8.4 on vault, a 7.6 on bars, a 9.05 on beam and an 8.6 on floor.

Mackenzie Botelho was next all-around score of 21.5 off an 8.3 on vault, a 7.15 on bars, a 7.3 on beam and an 8.75 on floor.

Haley Massa added a 30.95 all-around off an 8.4 on vault, a 6.6 on vars, a 7.55 on beam and an 8.4 on floor.

Hailey Kaiser was the fourth local to record a 30-plus all-around score with a 30.95 off an 8.4 on vault, a 6.6 on bars, a 7.55 on beam and an 8.4 on floor.

At home the following afternoon, January 23, at the Newport YMCA, the locals tallied a 128.85 which again bested Middletown (121.9) and Barrington (128.65), but still not enough to get past Portsmouth. The Patriots swept the overall meet with a score of 131.65.

Massa was tops for R/EP all-around with a 32.55 off an 8.5 on vault, a 6.95 on bars, an 8.55 on beam and an 8.45 on floor.
