Romeoville Tumbleweeds Gymnastics Team Successful at National Level
The Romeoville Tumbleweeds competitive gymnastics team competed in the AAU Age Group National Gymnastics Competition in Tampa, Florida this past week. The competition was tough at the national level, but there were some standout Romeoville athletes from the weekend.
Highlights from the event include Gaby Tetti (Level 5) with a 2nd place finish for uneven bars, Alejandra Rivas (Level 5) finished 3rd on uneven bars, Maddy Sisto (Level 6) brought home 1st place on uneven bars, and Ava Bedford (Level 6) took home 3rd on vault and 2nd on floor. The Tumbleweeds also finished with impressive all around placements. Two Level 4 athletes who attended both dominated their groups; Lily Griffin finished 3rd all around and Deja Ray brought home 1st place. The Tumbleweeds also finished with two 2nd place all around awards by McKenzie Buchanan (Level 5) and Mia Maglaya (Level 6).
