Gymnasts earn three championship cups at state meet
By Neal A. Shipman
The Badlands Gymnastics Club shined at the North Dakota State Gymnastics Meet in Fargo on March 20 and 21, as they brought home three championship cups to add to their trophy case.
The Bronze Xcel team and the Level 6 team finished in second place at the meet, while the Level 3 team took third place.
“When we hit the floor with only four or five gymnasts from little old Watford City on a team, we shouldn’t be able to hang in there with these large teams from big cities like Fargo and Grand Forks,” stated Pat McWilliams, head coach. “Yet our little ‘Davids’ came with a lot of stones in their pouches and knocked down a whole bunch of gymnastics giants! These kids wanted on the team award podium with all their hearts and the results show that it’s not just wishful thinking.”
