Earlier this month, several members from our competitive trampoline and tumbling team traveled down to Virginia Beach, VA, for the AAU Junior Olympic National Championships. They did outstanding! We are so proud of our girls!!! Shelby Werkema & Erika Stevens won a gold medal on synchronized trampoline in the advanced division, receiving a perfect 10 for a synchro score!!! AMAZING! I’d also like to highlight Paige Rhein. Paige has won gold on the double mini trampoline the last two years going into this year’s championships. Somehow, she managed to top that achievement by winning gold on THREE events this year!!!! Paige, who is 10 years old, won on the trampoline, double mini, and tumbling at the sub-advanced level.
The other Horizon girls that made the trip include: Maeleah Davis, Sophie Gwasdacus, Katie Werkema, Olivia Rhein, Alyssa Vitale, Jaycie Schultz, Anna Lutke, and Angela Douma. Several silver and bronze medals were won by this group, as well as top 10 finishes.
Way to go, Horizon! National champions every year since 1997!!
