Washington State Meet Clarification
There has been some confusion with the level 3 State Championship Meet. Auburn Gymnastics Center was awarded the bid by the "last" State Administrative Committee, and it will be held on May 1st - 3rd. The Compulsory State Invitational that is being advertised by another Club is not an "official" State Championship meet. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Congratulations to Jordan Chiles and Shilese Jones who just competed at the P&G Championships in Pittsburgh, PA. Jordan placed fourth in the All Around and earned a spot on the USA National Team! Shilese went 8 for 8 and ended up 20th in the All Around. Congratulations to both gymnasts. Washington is so proud of you!
Prayers needed for the owner of Skagit Valley Gymnastics… Michelle got bit by a spider 3 1/2 weeks ago and didn't know it. She started to have hip and groin pain and thought she pulled something. Went to the Doctor after 2 weeks and was diagnosed with shingles. Didn't get any better and went back in and they figured out it was an infection and put her on antibiotics. She got way worse Thursday and went in again Friday. They rushed her from the Doctor office to the hospital in an ambulance and into emergency surgery. She was only given a 50% survival rate at that point. They took out 16 inches of tissue out of her leg and hip area Friday and she has had 2 more surgeries since then. She was on a ventilator, but is off now and slowly recovering. She is in the ICU at Skagit Valley Hospital and will go to a rehabilitation center for a few weeks after that.
US Secret Classic
Congratulations to Jordan Chiles! Jordan won the Junior Division at the US Classic this weekend! Shilese Jones also competed and finished 14th in the All Around and qualified to the P&G Championships! Washington will have two gymnasts competing at the US Championships!
