Rising Stars Level 10 Gymnasts at Nationals
Top gymnasts across the nation found their way to Jackson, Mississippi May 9-11 to compete at the 2014 Junior Olympic National Championships and the National Invitational Tournament. Nearly 450 gymnasts competed during the first two days of the J.O. National Championships. The competition crackled with electrifying gymnastics scrutinized by college scouts from around the nation.
Weather-related flight cancellations requiring last minute rerouting across the nation and red-eye arrival times couldn’t deter two Rising Stars Level 10 gymnasts, Jessica Chiu and Amy Enright, from reaching their final destination. Chiu and Enright had both earned the right to represent the Upper Midwest on this stage having qualified by advancing through state and regional competitions.
In her final competition as a Rising Stars gymnast, Amy Enright finished with a solid All-Around score of 36.625. Enright turned in high scores on Vault (9.05), Bars (9.55), and Beam (9.0). Enright’s next competition will be as a member of the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse’s women’s gymnastics team.
Jessica Chiu qualified to compete in the National Invitational Tournament. As first alternate for Region 4, Chiu was invited to compete one day earlier in the National Championship with gymnasts from the Northwest corner of the United States including Alaska and Hawaii. Chiu enjoyed her first competition at the national level and recorded high scores on Vault (9.00) and Floor (9.20).
Congratulations to all our Xcel gymnasts on great performances at the Xcel State meet! Our Bronze team came in 2nd overall, with Brynn Savelkoul and Ashley Braun both winning All-Around titles in their age groups. The Silver team had a solid showing with Emma Cass taking 1st on Floor and Katie Kangas coming in 1st on Beam for the 10 yr.olds! The Gold team had their best team score of the year, taking 9th place overall. Elise Karlstad came in 3rd All-Around, and Leah Restad 4th. Many of our Gold gymnasts scored season high personal bests! The Platinum team took 6th with their highest score of the season. Nicole Urbaniak came in 3rd All-Around. Awesome job girls! Keep up the good work!

In the Senior C age division, Stillwater High senior Amy Enright placed 2nd on Bars (with amazing routine scored 9.55) and medaled with high scores on Beam (9.025), Floor (9.10), and All-Around 36.65. Enright’s 5th place All-Around standing in her age group guaranteed her a spot to compete at Nationals.
