The 2019 GK US Classic was a rather successful competition when it comes to our Region 5 elite athletes participating. In the junior session Cincinnati’s Lilly Lippeatt finished 9th all around but scored above the 13 mark on all four events including a high of 13.55 for an awesome bar set. JPAC’s Elizabeth Gantner missed the qualifying score for championships but had a great competition improving almost all her scores including the all around (50.45) from the American Classic and competed an upgraded Yurchenko 1 1/2 for the first time in competition for a 13.2.

In the senior session Faith Torrez from Legacy Elite in only her second elite meet finished 8th all around with 55.25 also improving from her score that won the American Classic. She competed a new layout full out first pass on floor at Classics. Shilese Jones from Future Gymnastics finished 9th all around but was named the 2019 Pan American Games team as an alternate. Shilese showcased several new upgrades at Classics. Legacy Elites long time elite Gabby Perea back at classics for the first time since 2017 had a fall on her first event but hit her last three finishing off with a 14.05 on her best event bars for 7th place on the event. She missed a few connections and had to water down her last pass on floor but Gabby said she was just excited to back out there competing. The next competition will be the USA Championships in Kansas City Missouri August 8-11.
