The girls of NGTC continue to improve and they proved it in Reno, NV at the Flips 2010 Invitational.
The tournament is comprised of gyms from all around the country and includes all levels, up to level 10. 17 team members from NGTC and their families made the trip from Oregon to compete. And, compete they did!
Leading the Level-4’s was Jessica Schaff. She put together a beautiful performance and took home her first ever first-place medal with a win on Beam! And, overall she finished very strong against probably the toughest competition the girls have seen all year with a 6th place overall finish!
The Level 6’s also competed Saturday morning. All the girls medalled on at least one event. Sarah Stinson turned in the top performance for NGTC with a third place finish overall which included top-five finishes on all four events!
The Optionals competed later on Saturday and will have results available on Sunday! The level-5’s compete at 8am on Sunday and will also have results available here late on Sunday!
Be sure to check-back and look at the photo galleries. Great fun was had by all, including the good gymnastics, meals, go-cart racing, bumper cars, arcades, a great night of bowling, of-course some parental gambling, but perhaps best of all, the many gymnasts (and parents) that dared take the adventure of THE Ultimate Rush! This 180-foot-tall swing has up to 5-people harnassed into a contraption, raised nearly 180′ in the air, and released, leading to a 55′ free-fall where you reach speeds over 65mph and exceeding 4 g-forces!
A great trip….good friends…good gymnastics…lifelong memories….that’s what NGTC is all about!!! Way to go girls!
