The level 4-5 girls started their competition season at Geelong YMCA on August 10th and came home with wonderful results. The main aim for this competition was to set a baseline for the rest of the season and to gain the all important pass score for level testing. I’m happy to report that everyone achieved the required pass score and the following girls are our newest level 4 gymnasts:
Courtney Mason, Ally McLean, Alexis Stergiopoulos, Chloe Maricak, Tahlia Houghton, Jasmine Kuerschner, Grace Scott-Thomas & Nicola Scarso.
Special congratulations to Grace Scott Thomas. In her first event at this level, Grace was the all around champion for her session, and achieved the highest score of any level 4 gymnast on the day! Grace is nearly nine years old, she trains 9 hours per week at MDG and is a very consistent worker. I’m very pleased to see her efforts rewarded.
