Advanced Girls Tumbling Team earn 3rd place finish at Nationals

Gem City’s advanced girls closed out the final day of the USTA National Championships strong with a 3rd in the all around team competition!

Three of our advanced athletes competed on the last day and finished well among the 116 teams. Nationals was in Rochester, Minnesota from June 14-19. Twenty-nine of our athletes qualified for Nationals at the State Championships, and 17 advanced to Nationals.

We are so proud of all our athletes and their hard work and dedication. Athletes on the tumbling team competed in up to five invitational meets this season. They practice 1-3 times per week for two hours each practice. Tumbling team athletes are coached by Zeke Cernea, Laci Heller, Anne Nash, and Lydia Schrand. Read more about the Gem City’s tumbling team here.

Congrats to our great athletes and all of their hard work.
