Gymnasts Represent YMCA of Darke County at National Tournament

The YMCA of Darke County is excited to announce the results of the National Gymnastics Tournament held in Long Beach, California.

The YMCA of Darke County’s long tradition of sending student athletes to the National Gymnastics Championship was continued in the 2015-2016 season. 10 Gymnasts qualified for the tournament and two of our very own competed. Kristen Short, level 8, and Sammie Short, level 6, were the athletes that represented the YMCA of Darke County. Kristen Short brought home a medal for coming in 10th out of 86th with her floor routine.

Since its premiere in 1938 the National Gymnastics Championships has set the stage for gymnasts to showcase their skills and hard work in one of the most prestigious ways possible. 1,500 of the top gymnasts from 90 teams around the country traveled to Long Beach, California to compete. “’For Youth Development’ is an area of focus that the Y takes very seriously because the youth are the future leaders and problem solvers of our community,” said Tyler Roberts, Program Director at the YMCA of Darke County.
