Wilton Y gymnasts stand tall at Northeast Regionals
Wilton Y gymnasts and their families made the 650-mile round trip trek from Wilton to Augusta, Maine, over the May 11-13 weekend to compete in the 2018 YMCA Northeast Regional Championships.
For many gymnasts, this was the final meet of the season, and the largess of the venue was exciting and inspiring. For others, this was the last meet before the season culminates with the nationals championships in Toledo, Ohio, to take place at the end of June.
With more 1,085 gymnasts in attendance, Wilton Red managed to stand proud on the podium with multiple medals and all-around trophies.
Overall, Wilton’s Level 6 gymnasts placed fourth out of 21 teams. The Level 4 team placed ninth out of 27 teams, the Level 8 team placed eighth out of 13 teams, and the Level 3 team placed 1sixth out of 31 teams.
