Maggie Schutte, current senior at Quincy Senior High School (QHS), has been a long-time fixture on Gem City’s tumbling team. She’s been a leader through her consistent hard work and willingness to help other athletes. In April, Schutte was awarded the USTA Southern Illinois graduating Senior Scholarship Award at the Southern Illinois State Championship and made the All-Star National Team.
Eight Gem City athletes came home as State Champions and 36 of our competitors qualified to advance to Nationals at the 2018 United States Trampoline & Tumbling Association (USTA) Southern Illinois State Championship in Pana, IL on April 22! A total of 39 Gem City tumblers competed at the State meet.
Haley Woodyard and Ava Winking competed at Regionals for Gem City and as members of the Illinois Regionals Team. Haley placed 2nd on balance beam and 7th on vault. They are coached by Jacob Huff, Hope Huff, Kiki Backoff, and Damon Wilson. We are proud of both girls for making it so far this season!
