A big gymnastics meet this Saturday at Minnetonka High School will serve as a preview for the next weekend's battle for a spot at the state tournament.
The Winter Wonderland Invite (WWI) takes place Saturday, Feb. 9. This is the fifth annual WWI, with five teams competing: Minnetonka, Eden Prairie, Wayzata, Minneapolis Southwest and Perham. The meet starts at 11:45 a.m. in the East Gym.
This meet is going to be an important one, as it is the last meet before the section tournament and four of the five teams involved are in the same section.
Also, long-time gymnastics power house Perham High School will be in attendance, adding to the high level of competition in the gym.
The Minnetonka High School gymnastics team competed at the state level last year, something they have not done for 35 years. The team ended up in sixth place at state.
