BECKER-Lydia Morrell won two events and placed first all-around to lead the Willmar gymnastics team to a first-place finish at the Becker Invitational on Saturday.

Morrell scored 35.35 points and took first on the bars and the beam.

The Cardinals' Kirah Kessler-Gross won on the floor and tied for second on the vault. She placed third all-around.

Willmar's Abby Coquyt placed second on the floor and Erica Schramm was third on the bars.

"Scoring on the day was very tight," said Willmar coach Jodi Mottinger. "We had some very nice performances on on day but struggled on vault and beam as a team. Now that we have two meets under our belt it will be nice to have four days of practice this week to work on things we know we need to improve on before we go to (New London-Spicer) on Friday night."
