Demons look ahead to state gymnastics state tournament

BISMARCK, N.D. - State tournament time is always exciting, and it’s coming up for winter sports next month. In gymnastics, Bismarck Demons’ Julia Red Wing and Kate Dillman are looking forward to competing against some of the best girls in the state.

“I plan on trying just seeing how the first day goes with team day and just feeling out the events and how comfortable I am on team day and then on individual day comes I know I have teammates and coaches that are there for me and support me and hopefully I just do my best," said Red Wing.

As for her teammate Kate, she hopes to place top 3 in state, just like last year.

"Some of my personal goals are to be able to compete my back hand layout step out like I did last year at state it’s kind of a mind game for me and just to be able to stay there or get even better,” said Dillman. “Julia Redwing has helped me a lot through it she motivates me through everything she helps me with my skills if I'm nervous for something she will help me talk me through it and she just makes me a better gymnast."

These girls will be back in the gym this Friday in Mandan.
