Gymnastics: Irish flying high
Abby Nelson's clutch balance beam performance Friday night against Lakeville North had Rosemount head coach Jason Passeri searching for superlatives.
After four teammates fell during the event, Nelson closed out the Irish's turn on the beam by scoring a 9.45 to take first place. That finish lifted the Irish to 6-0 in the South Suburban Conference after a narrow 141.05-140.8 victory over Lakeville North. The team score moved the Irish up to eighth in the Class 2A rankings.
