The All Star competitive gymnastics team completed its fall season at a regional meet in Auburn. All seven gymnasts competed in six meets during the season, which started in late August.

The team traveled to Concord, Elk Grove, Rancho Cordova, Roseville and Auburn to compete in the four standard elements of beam, bars, floor and vault.

This was the first competitive season for the Level 4 team: Myah Worth, 6; Ava Williams, 8; Ashley Liguori, 9; and Alix Ruelas, 8.

The Level 5 team members graduated from Level 4 in 2009 and had a year of competition under their belt. The team included Talia DeBay, 8; Anna Marie Repetto, 11; and Alysha Batson, 14.

Hailee Sandoval, 15, competed at Level 6 this season. Level 7′s Ana Mackey, 14, starts her fifth competitive season in late January, 2011.

The girls came up against California teams from Livermore, Concord, Stockton, Moraga, Novato, Salinas, Santa Rosa, Modesto and Turlock, along with Nevada teams from Reno and Sparks.

The All Star team is coached by experienced competitive gymnasts and trained instructors. The coaching staff includes Kim Salee, Breana Pryor and head coach Niki Bebout.

“We are so proud of all the competitive team and the huge accomplishments they have achieved in such a short time,” Bebout said. “Their hard work, dedication and positive attitude has really paid off. All the coaches and parents look forward to watching the girls progress and achieve so much more as they train for next season.”

The routine for each element is worth a total of 10 points and requires a specific set of skills to be completed with grace and precision. The gym’s Level 4 team earned third place at the Byer’s Elk Grove meet in September.

All the gymnasts earned enough high scores this season to qualify for the regional “zones” meet in Auburn.

“Gymnastics is fun and it makes you strong,” Myah said. Her teammate, Anna Marie, agreed. “I have been at All Star since I was 2 and still love coming every week,” she said. “Competing in front of people is scary but it makes you work really hard and you get stronger all the time. It’s great when you get a new skill and can perform it during a competition.”

All Star Gymnastics and Cheer offers recreation gymnastics, acrobatic gymnastics and cheerleading, as well as competition teams for all three programs. The classes are designed to provide each gymnast with an environment to help develop skills, strength. flexibility, self-esteem, confidence, perseverance, mental discipline, determination and self-respect.

Local residents Michael and Andrea Van Ry have owned All Star Gymnastcs for five years. For more information on All Stars’ competitive teams and recreational classes contact 530-622-7684 or visit the Website at allstar-gymnastics.com. The gym is located at 6160 Enterprise Drive, Diamond Springs.
