Updated: Feb 27

The Worthington Trojans’ Hali Bullerman excelled Saturday during individual competition in state Class A gymnastics meet in St. Paul, finishing second in the all-around.


Bullerman, a senior, placed first overall on the floor with a score of 9.625, fourth on the vault at 9.4375, ninth on the bars at 9.125 and 11th on the beam at 9.1 for an all-around total score of 37.2375. Addison Gerber, also a senior, placed 16th in the all-around, placing 12th on the beam, 33rd on the floor, 39th on the bars and 39th on the vault. 


Three other gymnastics competed for WHS on Saturday. Kenadie Thiner placed 31st on the floor for Trojans, Brooklyn Dykstra took 30th on the bars and 35th on the floor, and Jordis Weber was 48th on the beam.


In the team competition that took place Friday at the state A gymnastics meet, Worthington finished in seventh place. The Trojans, who qualified for the event for the 10th consecutive year, compiled a team score of 138.125 points. Worthington scored totals of 36.975 on floor exercise, 35.05 on vault, 33.975 on the beam and 32.125 on the bars.




In high school boys basketball Saturday, the Worthington Trojans led from start to finish and earned the right to play for the Big South Conference championship by defeating host Redwood Valley, 79-73.


Trojans head coach Clint Meyer said his team got off to a much better start than the first time they played the Cardinals last season, as Redwood Valley went up 17-3 early on in that matchup. Meyer added that he thought his team guarded much better this time around and did a fine job in containing the Cardinals’ Lukas Means to just 10 points after he scored 30 previously against WHS.


Zach Hayenga led the Trojans, now 14-10, with 28 points, while Jacari Swinea added 23 points and Andrew Mulder 10. Worthington and New Ulm will meet for the seventh time in two seasons on Monday night when the Trojans play at the Eagles for the conference title. Game time is 7 p.m.




Five Jackson County Central wrestlers qualified for the Class A individual state tournament on Saturday. Kyler Their at 107 pounds, Isaac Rodriguez at 121, Nolan Ambrose at 145 and Seth Stai at 172 captured individual Section 3A championships and Kayden Eller finished second at 114..


Also qualifying for state in Section 3A were Adrian-Ellsworth’s Jaren Winselman, who took first at 285 pounds, and Moe Erdman, who was second at 121. For Fulda/Murray County Central, Quintin Lewis qualified with a first-place finish at 16o, as did Kaston Clarke, was second at 107.


In the Section 3AA individual tournament, Windom-Mountain Lake qualified Preston Xayachak, who was first at 114 pounds, and Luverne qualified Sam Rock, who was first at 172. Marshall had multiple wrestlers – Lincoln Christenson, Landon Marthaler, Dylan Louwagie, Brayden Chandler, Tate Condezo, Aidan Mattison and Gavin Schaefer – each qualify individually. Pierce Rohman and Torrey Paplow both qualified for Fairmont-Martin County West.


The Worthington Trojans, meanwhile, had no individual state qualifiers Saturday. Eh Day Htoo finished in sixth place at 215. Kian Ling, Alex Galvez, Dalton Larson and Levi Hennings were each eighth at 107, 127, 133 and 189, respectively.




In girls basketball Saturday, Adrian-Ellsworth rallied from a 17-point deficit to force overtime against Hills-Beaver Creek, but the fourth-seeded Patriots regrouped and edged the fifth-seeded Dragons in overtime 64-61 in one of four “Super Saturday” games in the WHS gym.


Shandra Cuperus led the Dragons with 23 points, Sadie Krahlling contributed 16 and Katelyn Frodermann had 13. A-E finished its season with a 14-12 record. Hills-Beaver Creek got 23 points from Lanae Elbers, 18 from Olivia Deelstra and 16 from Brynn Bakken.
