Motions raised the bar again

Female gymnasts from Motions Unlimited arrived back on Island with many new personal bests, silver and bronze medals earned in the same arena against many competitors from as far away as Australia.

The Lady Luck Invitational in Las Vegas truly was a great experience for the girls who reached new heights in their competitive career.

Katie Scott,Lauren Hill and Jessica Lloyd performed very well with a field of 17 other gymnasts in their age grouping.

Scott earned a third place overall with a notable second place bars and a third place beam finish. LLoyd earned her sixth place with a fabulous vault and Hill with a sixth place demonstration of refined grace in her floor exercise and her bars work earning her a seventh place overall.

The second group of athletes performing very well also earned the same respect form the crowd who saw Morgan LLoyd and Haley Welcome battle it out for a fourth place tie overall.

Welcome earned a second place for vault.

Fourth on beam and the overall tie. Morgan earned a fourth on floor, seventh on bars and vault. Destiny Campbell earned a fourth on bars, fifth on beam, sixth on floor and seventh all around with Abigail Lindsay earned a seventh on beam,ninth on floor and ninth all around.

The two youngest athletes Raegan Rutty and Arielle Farley wowed us with Raegan scoring a second place bars, fifth on floor and an overall of eight place. Arielle earned eighth on beam and a ninth place victory overall. This level of gymnasts as a team earned a third place trophy for their efforts.

This success came after another recent competition held in South Carolina in October where many athletes garnered the top three spaces on the podium. Both male and female gymnasts will be competing next month in Tampa at the Gasparilla Classic.
