MA High School Senior National Gymnastics Team- throughout Mass
MA High School Senior National Gymnastics team
I would like to nominate the 2013 Senior National High School Gymnastics Championship Team from Massachusetts for recognition as a "Class Act." Tying a Senior National High School Gymnastics Championship meet record with a 150.325, Team Massachusetts edged Illinois and took the 2013 National High School Gymnastics Championship held in Ft. Myers Beach, FL May 16-19. This amazing team is made up of high school seniors from across the state. Team MA has not won this championship since 2005. In addition to the team win, there were a number of stellar individual performances as eight team members qualified to the event finals. What makes this team so special and worthy of recognition is that they decided to dedicate their meet to the victims and survivors of the Boston Marathon Bombings. Parts of their uniforms were emblazoned with the "We Are Boston Strong" slogan. Through the selling of blue and yellow ribbons, the team was able to raise funds that will be donated to the One Fund. This was such an amazing event, and as one of the six coaches involved, I would really love for the girls to get the recognition they deserve for proudly representing their state!
