Wildfire Gymnastics congratulates our athletes regarding their most outstanding efforts as they finished the 2017 optional Level 7 season. The Level 7 group finished out their season while at the Region 1 Championships held at the Sheraton Fairplex and Conference Center in Pomona, CA, begining April 21. Region 1 comprises five state level divisions, they being SoCal, NorCal, Arizona, Nevada and Utah. From these states came 667 gymnasts representing 155 teams. Amongst the 667 participating athletes there, 8 Wildfire gymnasts gathered 19 top three awards including 8 Gold, 6 Silver and 5 Bronze medals. Four of these medals were for All Around.

The highest scoring gymnast from Wildfire, she competing here for Regional Team Honors as part of ‘Team SoCal’, was Level 7 State AA Champion and 2017 Sr. A Regional All Around Silver Medalist, Thu Nguyen (38.725, 2nd Vault - 9.800, 1st Beam - 9.750, 1st Floor - 9.750). SoCal presented well against Teams NorCal, AZ NV and Utah to ultimately earn the title - Regional State Team Champions. Tenley Park, culminated her Level 7 experience this year accounting for All Around Gold, she posting Wildfire’s second highest AA score of 38.575 (2nd Vault - 9.700, 1st Floor - 9.800). Kaitlyn Tran, 2016 Level 5 AA Champion, finished her season as the Jr. D - 2017 All Around Gold Medalist posting a 38.250 (1st Beam - 9.850, 1st Floor - 9.500). Kaitlyn’s Beam score was the second highest posted on that event, including all age groups and sessions.
