Forty athletes from Northstar Gymnastics in Rockford will be competing in the USA Gymnastics Xcel Regional competition this weekend, April 27 – 29, 2018 in Westfield, Indiana.
To have the honor to compete in this competition gymnasts had to attain an all-around score at the Xcel State Meet of 36.00. That meet was held in Grand Rapids, Michigan this year the weekend of March 23 – 25, 2018. Over 900 athletes competed at this meet.
NorthStar Gymnasts Syndnee Schrauben of Rockford and Bella Elliot of Comstock Park were State Individual All-Around Champions of their age group and division. Bella Elliot scored a 37.875 all-around which was 8th out of all 428 participants. This scored earned Bella a spot on the Michigan Team at Regionals.
Michigan will be competing against four other States for the overall Region 5 title.
NorthStar’s Xcel Silver team took 7th overall out of 59 teams and the Xcel Gold team took 15th out of 63 teams.
NorthStar and it’s coaches are extremely proud of all the athlete’s that competed at the State Meet. Thank you girls and have a great time at the Regional Competition!
