Sievers topped her teammate Sam Wiekamp's record of 39.099, which was set in 2011, and was .015 from the South Dakota all-time all-around record set by Mitchell's Brooke Cersosimo in 2007.

Sievers, who posted the highest score of the evening with a 9.9 on floor, also claimed titles on floor, beam and bars and tied for first with Wiekamp with a 9.85.

"It's awesome to see that kind of gymnastics," Wagner coach Lorie Walery said. "We see that level of gymnastics that those two do rarely throughout the season."

Chamberlain junior Marilyn Nasomwat finished in 11th place in the all-around with a score of 33.4, while senior Vanzi Knippling took 12th with a 33.325. Freshman Shantel Bairey scored a 32.05 for 16th place in the all-around.

"Our bar routines were much better (Saturday)," Chamberlain coach Sherri Knippling said. "The girls held up well after the long competition on Friday and did well."

Vanzi Knippling earned her highest place finish on vault in seventh with an 8.625, while Nasomwat's highest finish of the day was 11th on bars with an 8.35. Bairey's placed 14th on beam with a 7.875 for her best finish.

Wagner senior Kylee Ligtenberg took 14th in the all-around with a 32.225 and posted her best score of the meet on floor with an 8.675.

"She let the pressure of her last meet get to her a little bit," Walery said, adding Ligtenberg struggled on the beam. "After beam, she did a really good job on floor. She ran off the floor and was overcome with emotions. I was really happy that she was able to rebound from beam."
