Jax Gym - all Levels - Compete at Yankee Doodle Dandy Large Meet
Jacksonville Gymnastics (Jax Gym) representing the gymnastics programs at Huff 'n Puff, competed Levels One through Eight and Xcel Levels Silver, Gold and Platinum, this weekend (January 17-18-19) at the Yankee Doodle Dandy Gymnastics Annual Competition with almost 700 gymnasts attending. The meet which is sponsored by Flip Flop Gymnastics was held at the Convention Center in Pine Bluff, which is a great facility for hosting such a competition with its large space for two complete sets of gymnastics equipment and wonderful seating for the parents and families of the gymnasts. The gymnasts were from very competitive teams from Arkansas and Louisiana. The meet began on Friday afternoon and ended early Sunday evening.
The meet began Friday afternoon at 2:30 as the Jax Gym Level One Team competed with 96 Level One and Two gymnasts from twelve teams. Competing for Jax Gym Level One Team were gymnasts--ages five to nine--Hanlee Bridges, Gabrielle Davis, Christine Ford, Kinley Lercher, Riley Miller, Emerson Orman, Anyiah Tenner, Amelia Turner and Maci Kate Weatherford.
I don't know if these Jax Gym Level One gymnasts knew already that they had won first place team award or not but you can see how happy they were. They knew that they had competed very well - I happened to hear from one of the judges as to just what a great job they had especially done on their bars - a very big accomplishment for Level One gymnasts!
