Gem City’s Level 3 teams rocked it at State this past weekend in Bloomington-Normal! Our Senior Team brought home 6th Place in the state, our Child Team earned 9th Place Team in the state, and our Level 3 Team brought home 12th Place Overall in the state of Illinois. With 63 Teams competing this weekend, we’re HAPPY to be in the TOP 19% of the State!
Level 4 and Level 5 gymnastics teams had a great meet season with nine athletes in Level 4 and five athletes in Level 5 advancing for State Competitions. Both State meets will take place from March 22-24 in Bourbonnais, Illinois.
Gem City competed at the St. Louis Classic Invitational as the last meet of the regular season. It was the largest meet in Missouri this year with over 1,700 athletes! State meets start next weekend! Congrats to our Level 3 team as they earned 3rd Place Team Award! We had MANY season best scores for our girls and lots of Top Ten finishes.
Gem City’s Level 9 gymnasts will head to the USAG State Championship in St. Charles, Illinois, on March 15-17. Haley Woodyard, 13 of Quincy, and Ava Winking, 13 of Quincy, will represent Gem City.
These two athletes practice more than 17 hours each week – after school and on the weekends. This does not include the private lessons they also take part in aside from their group practices!
Gem City will NOT hold classes, practices, or other activities on Wednesday, February 20. There will be NO Preschool Playtime or Adult Gymnastics. Please be safe and stay warm!
Wow! We’ve had a lot of snow days this year. Please remember 1) make-up classes are allowed for snow days and 2) make-up classes must be scheduled so Gem City can maintain manageable class sizes.
Gem City’s All Star Squad will compete at Nationals in Virginia Beach, Virginia in May 2019.
We’d like to say THANK YOU to those that donated to the 2019 Souper Bowl of Caring food drive! We know we had many snow days in between announcing this food drive and our last day of collection, so thank you to those that were able to make it to gym to donate. We proudly donated 33 items to this year’s efforts.
