2009 Level 4 State Championships
The 2009 Level 4 State Championships were held in Coral Springs and proved to be a valuable learning experience for our young team. All 11 gymnasts were competing in thair first ever State Championships and did a great job. Everything for a new team is a learning experience and to compete in a venue far from home in a large arena in front of the ladies in blue, large audiences and a host of competitors can be difficult. We are pleased to report that there were no falls on beam, and many of the girls scored personal best on individual events.
The highlight of the meet was Reyna Guggino who scored a 9.85 on Vault to become the 2009 State Vault Champion. We are proud of everyone.
Reyna Guggino - 2009 Level 4 State Vault Champion
2009 Level 3 and 5 State Championships
The State Championship Meet was held at the Lakeland Center in Lakeland where over 500 gymnasts competed for top honors and it was another great meet for Stars Gymnastics. A lot of great coaches, teams and gymnasts filled the arena as they were about to compete in their last compulsory meet of the Level 3 and Level 5 competitive season. After two long days of some great gymnastics three memebers of The Stars Gymnastics Team came back home as State Vaulting Champions.
Best of the best in their age groups were....
- Megan Bajo - 2009 Level 5 State Vault Champion
- Katey DiGiacomo - 2009 Level 5 State Vault Champion
- Ally Valenti - 2009 Level 5 State Vault Champion
Everyone is anxious to put these routines aside and concentrate on the excitment of training new skills and routines. Our plan at STARS is to always work hard and push forward toward new and higher goals.
Gene Stowe Invitational 2009
Our level 5 Team captures the 1st place team award AGAIN!
Our Level 3 Team runs away with Gold AGAIN!
Level 4 Team with impressive showing takes SILVER!
The Gene Stowe Invitational was another great meet for Stars Gymnastics. Some very high individual scores flashed on the marquee as we continue to reach for the stars. Our young gymnasts are becoming more confident with each and every meet. Their progress and effort is becoming evident in the competitive atmosphere of a meet situation.
Sarasota Sunfest 2009
Our level 5 Team captures the 1st place team award !
Our level 3 Team captures gold as well !
Our level 4 Team takes home the silver !
The Sarasota Sunfest 2009 was hosted by the Sarasota Sunbeams of Sarasota and it was our 3rd meet of the season for our young gymnasts. What an outstanding weekend of performances by all our gymnasts and teams. We again were impressed with their individual effort and focus during the meet. It was quite evident that our preparation in the gym is on the right track as their execution of routines is now beginning to take on a whole new meaning. We of course realize there is much more to be addressed and accomplished but it was just a lot of fun to see our gymnasts do so well. Congratulations to all!!
One more step along the journey. As we move forward we will work on raising the bar in all aspects of training. We fully expect with the success of this meet that our gymnasts will come in excited and eager to learn and you just can't ask for anything more than that.
