2011 national champion Céline van Gerner led the Netherlands to victory Saturday at a tri-meet against Belgium and Spain in the eastern Dutch city of Almelo.

The Netherlands stopped the Spanish women's recent hot streak, defeating Spain and Belgium on Saturday in the eastern Dutch city of Almelo.

2011 national champion Céline van Gerner (56.15) led the Dutch to victory at home. The Netherlands scored 221.35, an improvement over the 219.85 the squad tallied Sept. 3 in a dual meet against Poland in Lekkerkerk. In Almelo, the Dutch had highest team totals on vault, uneven bars and balance beam.

Spain came up short in Almelo after notching three straight victories against Great Britain, France and Italy over the past month. The Spanish women edged their hosts on floor exercise, but noticeably struggled on uneven bars and balance beam.

Van Gerner had the top scores of the meet with a 14.80 on uneven bars (toe-on blind to Jaeger; 6.0 Difficulty score) and 14.70 on balance beam (split jump to switch leap; roundoff two-foot layout; tucked front; front aerial to ff; switch leap full; double tuck; 5.9 D).

Marlies Rijken scored 55.75 for second ahead of Spanish champion Ana María Izurieta (55.10).

Lisa Verschueren was the top Belgian gymnast in seventh. National champion Julie Croket competed balance beam and floor exercise only.
