The Hudson gymnastics team picked up its second consecutive victory after winning an eight-team meet Tuesday at West Geauga High School in Chesterland.

The Explorers scored 138.45 points. Chardon Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin was the runner-up with 127.95 points and Mayfield took third (121.15).

"It was nice to get the girls on the sectional and district equipment," Hudson head coach Megan Mertz said. "Now we know what to expect going into the next few weeks. We have a few things to clean up still, but they did a great job."

Julia Petty led the way for the Explorers with a second-place all-around score of 35.5. She won the uneven parallel bars’ competition with a nine and finished third on vault (8.95), sixth on the balance beam (8.85) and tied for sixth on the floor exercise (8.7).
