Transform Academy Xcel team wraps up its season


The Transform Academy Xcel gymnastics team competed at the state meet on May 4-5 at the Sports Zone.  
This wraps up the season for the Xcel team gymnasts. Their coaches, Alicia Jennings and Melanie Mackey, were very happy with the gymnasts’ performances and could definitely see the improvements in all the girls from the beginning of the season up until now. They worked very hard and they’ve come a long way.    
Transform brought home two state champions (Avree Ebelsheiser and Maleah Walker) and several who finished in the top 5.  
Jennings said, “The biggest improvement was definitely the silver team on vault. All of the girls were new to that level and there was quite a jump in the difficulty of their vault pass. It was an awesome feeling seeing the entire silver girls place on vault at the state meet!”  
  The results are as follows with VT = Vault, UB = Uneven Bars, BB = Balance Beam, FX = Floor Exercise, & AA = All Around.
