We are proud of our many level 6 & 7 athletes, who competed at the Super 6 & 7 State meet in St. Charles, Illinois. These athletes were: Hannah Brunier, Lexie Destefane, Olivia Kaufman, Charleigh Koch, Lauren Stupavsky, and Georgia Graham. We are happy to inform you that Olivia Kaufman earned 8th on uneven bars while Charleigh Koch earned 10th place on the floor exercise.
The Gem City Outlaw cheer squad had a strong 2nd place finish at the Gateway Championship in St. Louis. They competed in the senior level 2 division against four other squads. We were proud of them as this was their first cheer competition ever!
We were especially proud of their award for best tumbling. This is given to the team with the highest average tumbling score of the entire day, which means Gem City out tumbled all other squads, including the level 5 teams.
Keep your eyes out for information in the next couple weeks if you or your child is interested in trying out for next year’s cheer squad!
Gem City proudly congratulates our level 4 girls on their strong performance!
We’re so proud of our level 4 team. They earned a 111.75 for 2nd place at the St. Louis Classic this past weekend! They were only beat .55 points. Their performance was exceptional, especially considering the large number of other quality athletes at the meet.
They all really put in the time and hard work need to excel at the gym. Keep up the good work!
WGEM filmed athlete profiles in preparation for the AAU Illinois State Tumbling Champion, which Gem City will host this May. It will be the second time our gym and the Quincy community hosted the state competition. The athlete profiles will air in the spring as the date of the competition approaches.
A little fun throwing with the cheer squad this morning! We ♥ tossing people above our heads and to the ceiling. And, this is how we begin every Saturday morning–with cheer squad practice!
If you’re interested in Gem City’s cheer squad be on the lookout for information in March!
On February 9th and 10th Gem City competed at the Tumbling & Trampoline Winter Circus meet. It was hosted by the YMCA of Edwardsville. It was a great meet that ran ahead of schedule. We really loved this. This was especially impressive considering over 900 athletes competed! Needless to say the competition was fierce, but we fared well.
