Gymnastics Qualifies for MHSAA Regional Meet After Defeating Negaunee

The MSHS Gymnastics Team had their best showing of the season on Monday evening (2/17/20), beating Negaunee 130.150 to 107.175.  Marquette’s team score of 130.150 was also the final team score needed to qualify for the group for the MHSAA Regional Meet.
