    The entire team qualified for regional competition, with Witzel headed to Aurora, Colorado beginning May 5 to compete in her regional.

    Newberry, Hancock, Hutchison, King, and Hauser will all compete in Houston, Texas from April 28 to 30.

    To qualify for regional competition gymnasts must score at least 34 out of a possible 40 points in state competition.


    “We are excited about this incredible opportunity,” the mothers of these girls said as a group, “These six girls are very talented and have the skills and determination to do very well at Regionals this year. It is also a wonderful opportunity for them to compete against girls and teams that they would not normally play, and to compete at some of the highest levels in the United States,”

    This trip is exciting but involves a major financial commitment. All proceeds from this fundraising effort will go toward the meet registration fees and team travel expenses (gas, plane tickets, hotels). No donation is too small. Click here to donate.
