The Noblesville Millers gymnastics team placed second in a competition against New Palestine, Brebuef and Anderson Prep high schools Tuesday night. New Palestine finished with a team score of 96.675, just above Noblesville’s 95.0. 

In the vault event, sophomore Olivia Mangin led the Millers with a score of 8.5, which was good enough for third place. 

“Olivia was out of last competition (but she) was able to jump right back in,” Noblesville head coach Jody Ramey said in an email. “As always, Olivia provides a consistent vault that we can count on.” 

Junior Devyn Palmer and Freshman Makayla Kauzlick tied for fifth place in vault with scores of 8.4. 

On bars, which Ramey said is the team’s weakest event, freshman Makayla Kauzlick finished second with a score of 8.625. Junior Devyn Palmer placed fifth with a score of 7.125. 

Kauzlick also led the Miller on beam, placing second with a score of 8.2. 

“Makayla was unable to perform all of her higher level skills last competition due to her ankle injury,” Ramey said. “(We) were able to put all her higher value elements back into her routine, which helped both our score and the team's score.” 

Kauzlick’s night wasn’t over, however. The freshman earned a first-place finish in the floor competition with a score 8.750. Palmer placing fifth in the event with her score of 8.2. “Devyn's show choir background shines through as she performs on floor,” Ramey said. “She also has such spunk and a bright smile — The judges love watching her perform. 

Kauzlick won in the All-Around competition with a score of 33.975. Palmer placed fourth with an all-around score of 30.950. Mangin finished in sixth with her score of 30.075.

Noblesville moves to 7-6 on the season.
