Gilbertsville Soccer, Gymnastic Stars Earn Praise

GILBERTSVILLE PA – Two Gilbertsville residents and college athletes received acclaim from their respective educational institutions last week (March 1-7, 2021) for their skills in soccer and gymnastics, respectively.

Navy freshman and Midshipmen soccer goalkeeper Mattie Gallagher won Patriot League “Rookie of the Week” honors for making five saves in a 2-1 double-overtime loss to Colgate. She made “two saves in the second half and one in overtime with a diving stop in the 103rd minute,” the league reported.

University of Denver freshman and gymnastics stand-out Jessica Hutchinson posted her new career-high score of 9.900, as the team earned a 196.875 to place second in a quad meet that also involved winner Oklahoma, and Texas Woman’s University and Lindenwood.
