PLATTSBURGH — Alyssa Leonard and Erica Leonard went 1-2 in the all-around as Beekmantown defeated Plattsburgh, 150.35-140.7, during Friday’s Champlain Valley Athletic Conference gymnastics meets.

Alyssa Leonard won all four events and captured first in the all-around with a score of 34.2. She won the vault (8.3), the bars (8.65), the floor (8.9) and the beam (8.35).

Erica Leonard was right behind with a score of 31.15 in the all-around. She took second in the bars (7.15), the beam (8.0) and the floor (8.2), while taking fourth in the vault (7.8).

“Even with the loss of injured Lydia Gricoski, on of Beekmantown’s top all-arounders, Beekmantown still kept up their winning streak,” Plattsburgh coach Janice Trudeau said. “This was due in part to the dynamic sister act of the talented Leonard girls.

“Plattsburgh had strong showings from Madison Baker and Hannah Kaltenbach.”

Kaltenbach paced the Hornets with a third-place finish in the all-around. She finished third in the vault (8.0), the bars (7.0) and the beam (7.8).

Alison Trudo added a fourth-place finish in the all-around for Beekmantown, with teammate Desiree Dashnaw taking sixth.

Baker finished in fifth for the all-around for Plattsburgh. Gavin Fritz had a second-place finish in the vault (8.05) for the Hornets.
