Coach Laurel, along with our hard-working staff members, with the help of Michael York on computer, did a fantastic job and we can't say just how proud we are of all of them - I will get into more of appreciation later.
The first session began at 2:00 on Friday afternoon and that meant that that our staff and the volunteers who came to set up had to really hustle to be ready at this earlier time. First session featured 48 Xcel Bronze gymnasts from six teams. Jax Gym does not compete xcel bronze, so we had no one in this session.
The second session began at 3:40 and featured 67 Xcel Silver gymnasts from nine teams, including Jax Gym Xcel Silver Gymnasts. Competing for xcel silver for Jax were Makala Cleveland, Jaidyn Clifton, Ariana Cruz, Hannah Ergle, Lily Fields, Aryonna Ford, Alayna Griffin, Zaria Jenny, Klaire Mawhorr, and Grayson Thomas.
