However, these girls had their teammates hot on their tail to lock in a place for their win as a team! Competing with Bansi, in the same age division, was Emma Foster and Lauren Godwin. Emma came in third and Lauren came in fourth. Bailey Nunnery had the dauntless competition of Ashna Vickers, second, and Maggie Palmer, third. Coming in behind Averie was Ashton Landrum getting second All-Around in their division. Maloree Inlow swept the floor with a first All-Around in her own division.

        Emily Chambers, Platinum, came in first All-Around and got the award for the highest Platinum All-Around (AA) score of her division as well as Kara Overman for level Bronze and Averie Barbree for level Gold!

        This is the Gymnasts’ first Optional Level competition of the season and later competed in Macon at the Disco Invitational, with a total of 95 metals won throughout the entire team. These two meets sealed their fate of going to state! Bronze will be competing on April 28th in Dahlonega, GA. On May 6th, Silver, Gold, and Platinum will compete in Roswell, GA. Congratulations Gymnast-a-Cats!
