Ranked 20th and Qualified to Nationals!
Northern California United had a very busy month of February! The Team Started the Month with a competition In Santa Barbara against Southern California United where the Condors fell to SC United by a margin of only 4 tenths. Two weeks later Nor Cal Hosted SC United at home for a re-match.
Saturday, February 15th The Condors had their first team victory in program history. They scored a season high of 347.1 while SC United scored 335.75. The day after the competition the Condors hosted SC United in a joint training day. Both teams worked hard, and enjoyed the hospitality of Technique Gymnastics who donated the use of their amazing facility for both the meet and the training day.
Two weeks later the Condors piled in a van and drove out to Phoenix for their last meet before Nationals. The team had a few struggles, but put up a respectable score of 340.95 which moved our national Rank up to 20th place. This ranking is another milestone in program history as the team has never been ranked in the nations top 20!
Freshman Brandon Garcia had a great day and took home third place AA! He had our teams highest score on High-Bar, rings, and Vault were he scored a 13.75.
Our next meet with be at Collegiate National Championships, and we are asking YOU the Gymnastics community to help us travel there. Fundraising has been a little slower than expected this year, and we do not have sufficient funds to make the trip out to Phoenix. We have received support from many people already this year, but we are asking anyone who is able to spare a donation to please help the team travel to Nationals.
Your donation is helping Men’s College Gymnastics grow in Northern California!
