White Bear Lake’s Laney Gunderson and Grace Squires will close their glittering gymnastics careers with a fourth state meet appearance for each, after leading the Bears to third place in Section 4AA on Saturday.

Gunderson placed third all-around with 37.45 points, repeated as balance beam champion with 9.55, and placed second on floor exercise with 9.575, advancing to state in all three categories. She placed fifth on bars (9.275) and eighth on vault (9.05). This is her second time qualifying in all-around, as she won the section last year.
