SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Springs Blue Streaks seized their 16th consecutive win at the Section 2 Gymnastics meet held at Shaker High School in Latham on Wednesday, February 8. Julia Van Horne, 17, a junior at Saratoga Springs High School, won her fourth consecutive all around title – a section record – competing in all four events: vault, bars, beam and floor. In all, 8 SSHS gymnasts are heading to the State Championships at Cold Harbor Springs on Long Island March 3 and 4. “These girls are amazing,” said Blue Streaks Varsity Gymnastics Coach Deborah Smarro. “My team is very tight knit, and because they have that family attitude it helped these girls achieve that next goal.” “We’re always cheering for each other,” said Van Horne. “We’re there to support each other and give each other advice. Our team is really tightly bonded and it’s great to know that if something happens, your teammates will be there for you.” The Saratoga Springs gymnasts heading to State Championships are: Julia VanHorne - All Around; Sophie Hrebenach - All Around; Felicity Ryan - vault, bars and beam; Laura Eberlein - beam and floor; Abby Zabielski – bars and alternate on floor; Kate DellaRatta – vault; Emily Fischer – bars; and Maddy Ryan - alternate on vault.
