Gymfinity Does a Triple Play in Wisconsin and Illinois
Date:1/16/2013

Fitchburg Wisconsin (PRWEB) January 16, 2013

3 Different teams under one roof and they all had a meet at the same time. The Madison area's hub of gymnastics and trampoline competition took to the gyms of 3 different areas this weekend and had overwhelming success.

The Gymfinity Optional team (levels 7, 8, and 9 in USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic competition) competed at the St. Jude Benefit meet in Schaumburg Illinois. "The teams did remarkably well" said coach J. Orkowski, "most of the teams were from Illinois and Michigan, two very tough states for gymnastics, and we held our own and stood toe to toe with gyms that train twice the hours we do." Gymfinity's Level 7 team placed 6th overall in the team competition with individual honors going to 12 year old Abby Davis placing 2nd on balance beam, 13 year old Addie Schipper placing 3rd in the All Around and 15 year old Olivia Castleberg who ranked at the top on balance beam for her age group. The level 8 team also faired well with a great showing overall by the team and an individual placement of 17 year old Hannah Hageman who placed 3rd on floor exercise. The level 9 team, Gymfinity's highest team currently, placed 6th overall as a team and powerful showings from 13 year old Kacey Mortenson (2nd on both bars and floor), 16 year old Chelsea Gray (3rd on 1st on beam, 3rd on floor and 4th all around), and 15 year old Brianna Slonim (1st on vault, 4th on beam and floor and 3rd all around). "our team did so much better with great support from Mari (Schroeder) and Haley (Gawronski). Having depth on the team really makes us more competitive wioth those other gyms." Orkowski told us. "The meet was a success overall, but what better than the placement is that our kids really get the idea of the benefit. That is what makes them champions regardless of the awards." The st. Jude Benefit meet started in 1991 with a few gymnasts raising funds to support a team mate who lost his battle with Cancer. To date the benefit meet has raised over 1 million dollars in support for St, Jude. This year the meet hosted over 1500 athletes. "It's so cool to be a part of a meet where kids can help kids" said Level 9 gymnast Mari Schroeder.

In Milwaukee the Gymfinity Excel team competed at the Team Spirit Invitational. "It was a great starting point for our season" said Kaitlin Liebhold, Xcel team coach "and I was really happy with how the whole team did." The USA-G Xcel program consists of Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond levels similar to the numbered levels of the Junior Olympic program. Gymfinity's combined team finished 3rd as a team, with individual recognition for several gymnasts. Lexi Karls won the AA for Gold division, Kenzie Jolicouer won the AA for platinum, and Hannah Posick won the AA for Diamond. Clearly this Xcel team is one to watch for the upcoming season.

In Champagne Illinois the Tumbling and Trampoline team also started their season. Gymfinity's group had great success with several winners in each of the 3 events. Tumbling, Double Mini-Trampoline and Trampoline. Their season runs through June and they travel as far as Florida this year. Coaches Debbi Hernandez, Robin Jensen and Kenny Greene are leading the Gymfinity team to a great year.
