Scots Open With Team Titles in Garland

Highland Park senior Clayton Staunton started this gymnastics season just like he finished the last one.

Staunton won all six events, plus the all-around title, and scored two perfect 10s as the Scots earned the team title at the season-opening Lakeview Invitational on Nov. 17 in Garland.

HP’s John Sartain tied for first place on vault, was second on pommel horse, and finished fourth in the all-around standings.

On the girls side, HP also claimed team gold behind the tandem of Ana Simpson and Lily Ford. Simpson won three of the four individual events — vault, uneven bars, and balance beam — in addition to the all-around crown.

Ford took first on floor exercise and was the runner-up behind Simpson in every other event. Margaret Maambo placed third on floor and fourth in the all-around in her Lady Scots debut.

Both HP squads will continue the compulsory portion of their schedule on Dec. 1-2 at the Toys for Tots Invitational in Hurst.
