MOUNT HOPE HIGH SCHOOL GYMNASTICS UNDEFEATED CLASS B STATE CHAMPS  (Class of 2017)

                      

The 2000 Mt. Hope Gymnastics team accomplished 2 rare feats during the 2000 Gymnastics season: They finished the season with a win over Barrington to cap off an undefeated regular season run. They then ran their undefeated streak right through the playoffs, capturing the State Championship also.

The Mt. Hope State win broke a 3 year streak as state champs by the North Kingstown team. In the midst of their quest for an undefeated season, Coach Liz Fudge痴 gymnasts set a state scoring record of 138.45. At the State meet top scorers for Mt. Hope were Ashley O達lennis 36.80, Tiffany Rodriques 34.05, Cassie O達lennis 33.25, Jessica Maisano 33.15, Kendal Whitty 30.75, and Rachelle Cyr 30.40. Other team members were Diane DeMedeiros, Erica Ribeiro, Christina Rodriques, Meredith Razza, and Caitlin Sardinha. Ashley O達lennis was the top gymnast at the Midge Palmer Individual Championships.

The team moved on to The New England Championships, where they placed 5th. Junior Ashley O達lennis and Bristolian Tiffany Rodriques were named to the All-State team. Jessica Maisano-Francis (All State in 1999 but injured in 2000) and Ashley O達lennis are members of the Warren Athletic Hall of Fame.
