GYMNASTICS:  Due to the limited number of schools participating in gymnastics, the ECC doesn't officially sponsor the sport.  Our ECC squads that do participate in gymnastics typically fare quite well in both the regular season and into the postseason.  Turpin kicked off the 2020-21 season with a victory at the Cincinnati Country Day Invite January 9!  Anderson finished second.  First-place and second-place performances were turned in by Andersons' Abby Pitts who finished first in the all-around, on vault, and on bars.  She also placed second on beam.  Turpin's Maycee Herzog finished first on floor and on beam and second in the all-around.  The City Championships are slated for Cincinnati Country Day on February 13.
