Level 3 Gymnasts Compete at State

Congratulations to our Level 3 gymnasts! They had a long weekend of competition at the Level 3 USAG Illinois State Championship. These athletes have worked so hard this season and we can’t wait to see what they do next season! We had 25 athletes compete. They are coached by Jacob Huff, Hope Huff, Kiki Backoff, and Damon Wilson.

The was held in Grayslake, Illinois, on May 4-6. Athletes had to have competed in 5 to 8 invitational meets throughout the season, which started in October 2017. At one of those meets, they had to also earn a minimum score of 34.00 all-around in order to qualify. Gem City’s Level 3 gymnasts practice 2 to 3 times a week for 2.5 hours each workout. You can read more about Gem City’s gymnastics program here.

Our Senior Level 3 team came home with an overall 7th Place finish! You can find individual results below the photos.

Good job, Level 3 gymnasts!
