Gymnastics Revolution Scores Big at Dunne's, Hebron, CT. November 21, 2004

The compulsory gymnasts from Gymnastics Revolution were at it again on November 21, 2004.  In a local competition at Dunneís Gymnastics in Hebron, CT, the level 4, 5, and 6ís from Gymnastics Revolution dominated the field.  Kinetic Kids, Farmington Valley, Dunneís, Tritown, NorthWest Gymnastics, and Glastonbury YMCA were there, but in the end, it was the Gym Rev girls taking top honors.  The level 5 team posted a 176.875,  trying its strength in preparation for the Connecticut State Championships at SCSU in December.

Individually, in her second such victory this season, Katie turned in the highest All Around score of any level 5, and the second highest score of the entire meet.  The only gymnast to come up with a better total was her level 4 teammate, Hanna.

When age groups were considered, the Gym Rev Level 5ís swept every category, led by Sam, Katie, and brand new to the team, Erin.  Erin has been training for months, and has only just been entered into meets.  She was allowed to compete this weekend in the hopes that she might be able to add to the teamís totals, but she surprised everyone by hitting routine after routine, ending the day without a major error, and with the title for 10 year olds!  Erin and her teammates came up with an impressive 176.875, and with a little more work, they will be a force to be reckoned with at the State Championships!


Also of note were Brittany, who stepped into the spotlight with a fantastic bar routine, and her first appearance in the 9.0 Club, Brooklyn, whose solid performances have improved every meet this season, and Samantha M. and Colby, who both qualified to the State Championships in December.

In the Level 4 ranks, Amy, Mary, and Hanna traded top performances back and forth all day.  While all of the Level 4ís were fantastic, these three gymnasts led their team, but when concentration became very difficult on the last event, Hanna focused in to edge out her teammates!  Great work girls, and good luck at the December State Championships!
