Ava Lee competed in the JO 7 showing her giants on bars for the first time in competition.

Rayne Loock also competed in the JO 7 category showing a yurochenko vault, a clear hip to handstand and a giant on bars as well as a walkover back handspring series and roundoff back tuck dismount on the beam.

In the JO 7 category, Ava Lee took 5th place on the beam, placed 9th on both vault and bars and finished 10th on floor to come home in 12th place in the All Around.

Rayne Loock took 7th place on beam, and finished 11th on vault, bars and floor to come home in 13th place in the All Around.
