This was a very successful meet for us all. I would like to congratulate all gymnasts who competed, you should all be very proud of yourselves. I would like to add that for a number of these gymnasts, it was their first year competing in these levels. They have all worked very hard to achieve new skills and learn new routines. Many were in categories having a very high number of competitors as well.

Thank you to all of our coaches and parents who put in the time and dedication to help our gymnasts achieve their goals.

Dawn Lundrigan is the Thompson Tumblers head coach.
