July 28, 2013

MAT Tumbling/Trampoline Team traveled to Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., to compete at this year's USTA Nationals, where more than 140 teams gathered to show off their talents in tumbling, trampoline and double-mini trampoline.

MAT took 41 competitive team members to compete with more than 1,700 competitors from across the United States. All of the MAT team athletes placed very well individually with most making the podium, including two national champions - Kenna Winther, sub novice power tumbling, and Alexis Farrell, novice power tumbling. This was a difficult accomplishment with several of the leveled age groups having as many as 60 competitors.

MAT took third place in the country for the top power tumbling team. The MAT team also came away with six level team trophies; Novice Tumbling, second; Sub Advanced Tumbling, second; Advanced Tumbling, national champions; and Elite Tumbling, second. Also, the double-mini trampoline team came away with Elite girls taking second and the synchronized girls are national champions.
