Kaylyn Garant of Port Washington concluded her high school gymnastics career with three top-16 places in the WIAA Division 2 State Meet last week at Wisconsin Rapids.

Garant came in 13th with 8.467 points in the uneven parallel bars and 20th with 8.1 points on the balance beam. She finished 15th in all-around with 33.9 points.

She also turned in scores of 8.5 in vaulting and 8.833 in floor exercise but had not qualified individually for either event.

Because Port coach KC Moore had to remain home last weekend with her due date approaching, Garant received coaching assistance from Whitefish Bay's Mary Liniewski and was even invited to take part in the Bay team's huddles.

"I can't say enough how wonderful a kid she was to work with," said Liniewski of Garant.

In the Division 1 State Meet, Grafton/Cedarburg sophomore Mia Ketelhohn came in 16th on the beam with 8.817. She was the lone state qualifier for the co-op squad.
