Saturday, February 11, 2023 | 1:07 AM

Moon, the dominant team in WPIAL gymnastics over the past decade, captured another team title Friday night, topping Pine-Richland to repeat as district champs.

Moon finished with a total of 144.842, ahead of Pine-Richland’s total of 140.599. Baldwin (140.383) was third, followed by Thomas Jefferson (136.351), Central Valley (134.642) and West Allegheny (133.792).

Moon was the first repeat champion since Thomas Jefferson in 2019-20, but the Tigers are no strangers to winning multiple championships.

They also won three in a row from 2012-14 and two in a row from 2017-18. Moon claimed its first of eight crowns in 2008.

The WPIAL individual championships are set for 10 a.m. Saturday at Moon.
