The Central Lincoln County YMCA gymnastics team took its 10 qualifying gymnasts to compete May 14-15 in the New England Regional Gymnastics Championships at the Alfond Youth Center YMCA.

Nearly 1,000 gymnasts from the top qualifying YMCAs in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Maine and New Hampshire competed in the four events: vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise, plus all-around for the combination of all those events.

CLC team members who attended the New Englands were: Catherine Roy, Whitney Dow, Kylie Farnham, Alison York, Madeline York, Katherine Colomb, Emma Hall, Macallister Moss, Emily Kelsey and Gracie Moore.

“I’m so proud of this team. The girls competed against the top girls in their age groups from big YMCA’s, with judges from all-around New England and against top gymnasts from seven states and they did it with grace and skill,” said coach Janice Cormier-Hay, who leads the CLC squad with Betsy Lee.
