Strong showing in Stateside events

Quality Gymnastics enjoyed positive results on their travels in two competitions in the Unites States of America.

The first of which saw seven of the club's gymnasts compete in the prestigious Presidential Classic invitational hosted at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, in Disney World, Florida, last month.

The meet included more than 2,000 gymnasts competing in different levels with the club's Level 4 competitors more than holding their own.

Alyssa Andrews, Kateri Zuill and Ajana Patton gained vital experience competing for the first time in USAG Level 4. Andrews placed 10th all-around, Zuill clinched a fourth place on bars and floor and seventh place all-around. Patton, meanwhile, placed fourth on beam, sixth on floor and got to step up on the podium with her second place on bars; she placed sixth all-around.

Blake Boden, Isabella Stowe, Sean Lawrence and Avani Patton had previous experience at this level and obtained good qualifications.

Boden placed third on bars, closely followed by club mate Stowe in fourth. Lawrence clinched third on vault and floor, finishing third all-around, while Patton came third on vault, second on bars and floor to claim a third all-around finish.

Meanwhile, the club also had four gymnasts competing in three different levels, in New Jersey at the March Madness Invitational earlier this month.

Competing for the first time at USAIGC bronze level, Caitlyn Brodie controlled her routines well and came fifth in the all-around, fourth on floor scoring a 9.00, and third on beam.

There was also promising displays from Zuill and Jasmine McIntosh competing at USAG Level 4.

Zuill came second on bars after performing a solid routine on difficult apparatus, while McIntosh did very well in her first meet competing in Level 4, coming first on vault and bars, fourth on floor and third in all around.

Finally, Kayla Calveley competing at USAIGC Copper 2 level, clinched a third place on bars, wrapping up a successful competition for the club.
