Pinkerton Academy of Derry looks for its fourth straight title and third consecutive perfect season at the NHIAA Gymnastics Championships at Salem High School on Saturday. The first-ranked Astros, led by junior Kaylee Pacunas and sophomore Brittany Capozzi, compete in the afternoon session at 2 p.m. against second-ranked Salem and its freshman star Nina Whittaker, as well as Londonderry, Bishop Guertin of Nashua, Goffstown and Keene.

The morning session begins at 10 a.m. and includes gymnasts from Pelham, Dover, Exeter, Nashua North, Souhegan of Amherst and Spaulding of Rochester. Athletes from non-competing schools are featured during both sessions. Admission is $5 for students and seniors and $7 for adults.

Hollis/Brookline looks to defend bowling crown



Hollis/Brookline will have another uphill battle in its title defense at the NHIAA Team Bowling State Championship on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. at Spare Time in Manchester.

Last year, the underdog Cavaliers captured the championship as the sixth seed. This year they rank eighth and face ninth-ranked Laconia in the first round. The winner of that matchup bowls against top-ranked Pinkerton Academy of Derry in the quarterfinals.

Second-ranked Stevens beat Pinkerton in the semifinals last year before losing to Hollis/Brookline in the finals.

Admission is $5 for students and seniors and $7 for adults. For more info, visit www.nhiaa.org and click on tournament info.
