Mount Si Gymnastics Academy launched itself onto the local gymnastics scene with an impressive performance at the Level 4 state meet, held April 21 and 22 at Glacier Peak High School in Snohomish.

Only the best and brightest gymnasts qualify to compete at the USAG Washington State Meet, held once a year. Opening its doors just a few weeks ago, owners Amy Norton and Kathy Caro knew there was much to be done in order to prepare for the state competition.

Working together with head coach, Penny Loan, they spent the past few months preparing the gym with their signature red, black and grey colors and ensured all equipment was ready for heavy use by the team.  The gymnasts worked hard to ensure they demonstrated their best performance on floor, bars, vault, and beam. Their tenacity paid off earning the girls placements ranging from 4th place to 11th place finishes. Their strong results demonstrate that this new gymnastics team has a bright future.

Results for the team included: Ginger Judge, fourth place; Lauren Bennetts, fifth place; Megan Simpson, eigth place; Summer Horsley, ninth place; Addison Norris,10th place; Sidney Aspinal and Ellery Norton, 11th place.

Mount Si Gymnastics Academy & Dance Studio’s goal is to provide every child with a healthy and positive environment in order for them to achieve their personal goals in gymnastics, dance and fitness.

MSGA is located in the Mount Si Business Park in North Bend.
