Bullerman wins all-around, Trojans sixth at State True Team gymnastics meet

The Worthington Trojans and Morris-Benson Area Storm played a girls/boys hockey doubleheader Saturday afternoon at the Worthington Ice Arena.


The Worthington Trojans gymnastics team hosted the State True Team Meet and wound up placing sixth overall. The Monticello Magic were first with a total of 177.975 points; Worthington had 171.825.

It was a strong meet for Hali Bullerman, who took first in the all-around competition in a meet that included the top 10 Class A gymnastics teams in Minnesota. Bullerman tallied a total score of 37.1 points in winning the all-around; teammate Addison Gerber placed ninth.

In individual events, Bullerman captured first place on the vault with a 9.2 and first on the floor with a 9.625. She was also second on the vault with a 9.55 as well as ninth in the bars at 8.725. Gerber was third overall on the floor at 9.55 as a large crowd packed the Worthington gymnastics facility on Trojans coach Joni Reitmeier’s birthday. The meet took place two days after Reitmeier notched her 200th career victory as WHS coach.


Worthington High School and Morris-Benson Area played a girls/boys hockey doubleheader Saturday afternoon at the Worthington Ice Arena.

In the girls game, Morris-Benson Area’s Karlie Bruns scored five times and the Bulldogs topped the Trojans 6-1. The Storm led 2-0 after the first period and scored first in the second period before the Trojans’ Marin Pederson tallied an unassisted goal for a 3-1 score. The Storm scored once more in the second and added two more goals in the third.


WHS, which is still in search of its first win this winter, outshot Morris-Benson Area 25-23.


In the boys matchup, the Storm got a goal with 48 seconds left in overtime to edge the Trojans 6-5. After Ian Bumgardner put WHS out in front 1-0 in the first period, Morris-Benson Area scored three straight times before Trenton Chantharath trimmed the deficit to 3-2 with a little more than a minute remaining before the first intermission.


Chantharath scored again to make it 3-3 in the second period, and after a Storm goal Easton Newman answered for the Trojans. In the third period, Morris-Benson Area went ahead 5-4, but a goal by Spenser Nickel with 11 seconds left sent the game into overtime. WHS outshot the Storm 38-29 during the game.



The Worthington Trojans boys basketball team got down 18-2 early on against visiting St. Peter on Friday night and ultimately never recovered as they lost 85-73.


The Trojans, who dropped to 8-6 overall this season and 2-3 in Big South Conference play, got within seven points of the lead later in the first half, but wound up in the locker room at the half down 11 following a St. Peter 3-pointer with two seconds left. The Saints then came out on fire in the second half and built a 55-35 advantage. The Trojans closed to within eight of the lead with a minute to go, but St. Peter closed out WHS from there.

Freshman Owen Potts led five double-figure scorers with 18 points. For the Trojans, Jacari Swinea had 27 points, with Zach Hayenga contributing 18 and Kaleb Knothe 14.
