Napa gymnasts open season at Princess Invitational



The three compulsory teams from the Gymnastics Zone opened their season at the Princess Invitational hosted by Accel Gymnastics in Burlingame, CA.  The season opener is always an exciting day for any gymnast - level four and five gymnasts are getting back into the swing of things, hoping to break personal records and to help their team earn a place in the top three.  Level three gymnasts, a good portion of them only in first or second grade, come to the competition floor with wide eyes wondering what they’ve gotten themselves into while hundreds of people watch from the crowd.  Somehow, with the help of their coaches, they all gather their composure and step out onto the floor to show their stuff.  Of course, receiving your awards from Cinderella and Prince Charming at the conclusion of competition helps to add to the excitement, especially for the younger girls.

The results are as follows:
