KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The Ketchikan Gymnastics Club hosted its Turkey Tumble meet on Saturday. And high scores were a common theme throughout the meet.

Twenty-two of the 26 competitors scored at least one 9.0 in one of the four events — vault, bars, beam, floor — and everyone hit 8.0 or higher.

Of the 22 participants who scored 9.0 or higher, 15 hit the mark more than once. And Ashley Harold, Alexis Nielsen and Trinity Neilson scored a 9.0 or higher in all four events.

Judges Allison Reed and Loretta Cole made the trek to Ketchikan from Anchorage and Fairbanks, respectively.

The Ketchikan Gymnastics Club's season stretches into March 2020. The Turkey Tumble was the group's second home meet of the year.

Here are results from the Turkey Tumble:
