Rome, GA- The Xcel Gold – Rome Aerials Gymnasts scored A RECORD High Team Score of 113 on Saturday at the 2019 Tucker Elite Valentine Invitational in Tucker, GA. The team score is comprised of the sum of the top three (3) athlete’s score for each event. This is even a bigger accomplishment given the fact that 6 team members were unable to participate due to sickness.
“These ladies overcame a lot physically and mentally. It is not easy being down six team members but they came out and did their best. They are working hard and it is paying off! I am so proud of them and cannot wait to see what the rest of the season holds for them.” Says Chloe Schuttinga, Rome-Aerials Gymnastics Coach.
