Trampoline and Tumbling:
During the 2018 season, the Trampoline and Tumbling team received 27 1st place medals (including 6 at states alone) along with 9 2nd place medals.
For those unfamiliar with trampoline and tumbling, we only compete on three events (trampoline, double mini trampoline, and power tumbling), and for most of our season we had only between 7 and 8 competing gymnasts, making that many medals all the more impressive.
Great job team!
