Congratulations to Sophia Slater & Anna Venvertloh on competing at Level 7 & 8 State in Waukegan this weekend. Gem City is USAG Regionals bound AGAIN this season with Venvertloh qualifying!

Sophia competed Friday, April 9 as a Level 7. Anna competed Sunday, April 11 as a Level 8, earned ninth place on floor, and also earned a qualifying score to advance to Level 8 Regionals in Noblesville, Indiana April 23-25!
