MOULTRIE -- The Moultrie YMCA Gymnastics Center held its annual Class Meet, the first one staged in the new Donald A. Blevins Gymnastics Center, on Saturday, Feb. 28.

The meet was run competition-style with 50 girls and boys participating in five events; vault, bars, beam, floor and tumble track and pit.

Class meets give recreation gymnasts a chance to demonstrate their skills in a public setting, which helps increase their awareness of correct body position for each event and also boosts their self-confidence.

After the rotations to all five events, the gymnasts were awarded trophies for their work and dedication.

There were five squads consisting of 10 gymnasts each.

The squads were:

The Torches, Kailey Middlebrooks, Daley Scott, Sunny Cannon, Michael Young, Victoria Cordista, Cassie Taylor, Makaelyn Cobb, Shelby Parrish, Lora Grace Bruce and Kinley Weldon.

The Eagles, Savanna McMillan, Jenna Harrell, Kristina Scott, Jaquelyn Walton, Samantha Ellison, Hannah Riley, Jessica Blakley, Timaijia Harris, Grayson Perryman and Desirae Cash.

The Heroes, Bailey Hawes, Kelliann Howell, Abbie Galphin, Faith Luke, Shannon Milling, Alexis Griner, Hanna Martin, Mallory Herndon, Tarah Yared and Shianna Corley.

The Patriots, Caitlin Rollock, Nicholas Cordista, Jay Lamb, Jimmy Dean Benton, Danielle Benton, Jessica Willis, Madison Turner, Shelby Rakestraw, Lindsey Stapleton and Amber Boyd.

The Stars and Stripes, Vicky Allegood, Hannah Thompson, Jordan Newberry, Tiffany Carruthers, Shea Russell, Amber Kling, Katie McDonald, Heather Globerman, Chelsea Russell and McKayla Farmer.
