Top Five Honors for the Level One Gymnasts follow: (names are as I have them by age and by first name alphabetically. (I know this seems nuts but I've been doing it this way for the many years that I attended the meets and got the placements, etc. when they were calling off the names so quickly it was difficult to get them found on my sheets and written down. Have just continued this for years. So, now you know.
It just occurred to me that I have not this year explained the scoring. Each gymnast's four events are totaled and that is how First-Place Individual All-Around scores are found. Team scores are found by taking the top three scores of a team for each event and those four scores are then totaled for the team scores.
