Stellar performances shine at Girls gymnastics meet

With their season just beginning, the Grosse Pointe United Gymnastics team (GPUG) is starting off on the right foot. On Dec. 12, GPUG won their meet against Fraser High School, scoring an impressive total of 129.625 points which ultimately gave them the win. Lucy Tull ’25, one of the South students on the team, has very high hopes for how the rest of the season will progress.

“I think GPUG had a great start to their season and I’m excited for it to continue,” Tull said. “Everything’s going to get better like our floors definitely going to improve through the season.”

Coming into the new season, there are a few newer gymnasts, from both North and South, who have joined the team. With this being her first ever GPUG meet while at South, Natalie Whittaker ’27 was a bit intimidated by it.

“I was kind of scared at first but then once I got the hang of it I was confident that I could do it,” Whittaker said.

The team has players throughout all different grades, which makes the whole team quite diverse in age, yet they are still quite close to each other. Tull feels that there is a good age range of girls on the team.

“There are three seniors, only two juniors, two sophomores and three freshmen which I feel is a pretty good mix,” Tull said.

Despite there being a good balance of grades on the team, out of the ten girls on the team however, only two of them are from South which makes the ratio of North to South students unbalanced. Whittaker and Tull both believe that many South students just don’t know about the team, due to the little advertising it gets.

“Gymnastics is a really fun sport once you actually get into it,” Whittaker said. “GPUG accepts everybody even if you’re a beginner.”
