Congratulations to World Class Gymnastics and
for 1st place All-Around finish
at the 2014 JO Nationals!
Congratulations also to Kourtney Chinnery for
making the Junior Olympic National Team!
TAYLOR HARRISON just won the All Around for Senior D age group with a very impressive 38.475!!! She was 2nd on Vault 9.8, 2nd Bars 9.675, 2nd Beam 9.525 and 10th Floor 9.475. Taylor completed against the 56 of the best athletes in the Nation. Gymnasts earn a spot on the Regional Team by placing top 7th in the AA at Regionals - so the top 7 athletes from the 8 regions make up the competition. Taylor has qualified to JO National for 5 years in a room - and this is her second time placing top 4 at Nationals - which she did in 2010 as a Junior A.
KOURTNEY CHINNERY also earned a placement on the Junior Olympic National team in age group Junior A for her excellent meet. Kourtney placed 9th on vault 9.6 and 2nd on floor 9.7 and 5th AA with an impressive 37.9. The top 4 All Around scores per age group (must be US citizens) are named to the Junior Olympic National Team.
Kourtney has qualified to NIT for the past two years and won Vault both times. This is her first year qualifying to JO Nationals - and what a great meet it was for her!
JAMIE STONE represented Region 7 in the Senior A age group - and unfortunately rolled her ankle in warm ups - but still scored a 9.3 on bars to contribute a score to the Region 7 team.
KC LOCHER qualified as an alternate to JO Nationals and would have competed at NIT except she also rolled her ankle last week and had to scratch.
Congratulations to TAMI HARRISON and RYAN GOEN for coaching these excellent athletes.
Taylor and Kourtney were invited to train with the National Staff at a clinic over the summer. Taylor began her Freshman Year at Ohio State University on a full scholarship.
