Riverside Gymnastics is talkin’ turkey.

The academy took second and third place team trophies at the Northern Sectional meet on Saturday and Sunday in Hillsboro.

And qualifying 27 athletes for state… that was all gravy.

Nine-year-old Abby Beal is “excited” by the prospect of matching up against the state’s best the weekend of Dec. 7.

Beal was on fire Sunday, punching out a 9.45 on a straight-legged beam routine on route to an all-around first place finish with a score of 37.3

Coaches Mike, Candy and Sarah Smith kept their advice to Beal simple.

“Stay focused,” they told her.

She did.

Scores in her rotation never went below a 9.25.

Gabbe Haskins, 8, was also pushing her limits with a well-rounded effort, bringing a scorching 37.475 all-around first-place finish.

Haskins said she was not yet satisfied, needing to polish her jumps on beam and getting her impeccably straight “Gabbe Toes” to line out.

“Yep, I’m excited about state,” she said.

Krissy Carter tore up the air, swinging a 9.675 on bars and leading her team in all around performance with an untouchable 37.9.

Riverside took the top of the podium multiple times, with a total 10 first-place medals in individual events.

Karla Hernandez went first on vault with a 9.7 Hailey Birch stuck a 9.6 on bars.

Margo Mayo, performing at level 3, knocked the leather of the Beam with a 9.5, and level 5 participant, McKenna Bailey, torched the floor with a 9.525.

In addition to those solid results, Riverside standouts Emily Adams, Alexa Baldy and Poppy Miller also hammered out first-place finishes in their routines to lead the level-four team to a third-place trophy.

With the contributions of Beal, Hernandez, Birch, Mayo, Shaela Bradley and Jacy Johnston, Riverside’s level-three team earned a second-place trophy.
