Regionals: Jareth, Carter - Level 8, and Connor, Ryan - Level 9 - April 12

Hello Gymnastics Fans!  I usually do not go to the gymnastics regionals competition as the first one I went to was very crowded and had only fair lighting.  Well, this year's regionals was just too close to me to pass up, and I'm glad I went.  A nice, large facility with access on 3 sides, even if the lighting wasn't all that friendly.  Many unhappy faces during the competition though, as regional meet qualifiers tried to do better than their best to earn a national qualifying time.  Still though, every gymnast in the competition had something in common -- many, many hours of practice in the gym.  One can only be in awe of such dedication by so many talented athletes.  Once again, there are no posed shots here, just the real action and competition.

To Purchase Prints: The full galleries are not online, as each of the gymnasts has a CD of proof photos from their performance.
