Gymnastics Team Carries Momentum into the New Year

IMG_0010Gem City’s gymnastics team saw so much success in 2014 and they’re carrying it right into 2015. They’ve had two meets so far with two strong showings.

The first meet was the King Arthur Invitational in Bourbonnais, Illinois, on January 23-25.  The level 3 girls brought home a second place team award. Great job, ladies!

The following weekend in Collinsville, Illinois, Gem City had its second gymnastics meet of the 2015. This meet was the Gateway Challenge. The level 4 girls earned a second place team award.

The hard work and dedication to perfecting the details is paying off!
