Of the many notable accomplishments: Out of 150 gymnasts who competed in Level 8, 18 girls represented the Rosettes—five Rosettes made it to finals where only 25 spots were available.

“We’re extremely proud of the team,” said Ellen Gavin, Madison Area YMCA Gymnastics Director. “The team worked hard and turned out outstanding routines in all levels and divisions.”
