The Tanager gymnastics team hosted the eighth annual Winter Wonderland on Thursday, Dec. 28. With temps in the mid 30s and cloudy skies, it hardly seemed like December.

There were seven schools represented at the meet that began at 11:30 a.m. at the VHS gym, which was decorated by a holiday motif.

With over 80 gymnasts and a necessary eight-rotation format, the meet was completed in four and a half hours and included a special fun contest to determine who could maintain a handstand without "crumbling" for the longest period of time. In the regular competition, the top 10 scorers in each of the four events and all-around winners were recognized, with the first eight being awarded a place medal.

The final team results were: 1. Britton/Heckla – 122.45; 2. Milbank – 118.7; 3. Vermillion – 118.4; 4. Chamberlain – 114.75; 5. Wagner – 111.55; 6. West Central – 101.15; 7. Winner – 100.6.

Following are the placers and scores for each event and all-around:
