Brandon YMCA Gymnastics Team Takes Three All-Around Trophies

The Brandon Family YMCA gymnastics team won three third-place trophies at the 19th annual Gasparilla Classic Gymnastics Meet March 2-4 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg. One of the largest gymnastics competitions in the country, the meet brought together thousands of young gymnasts from all across the U.S. The level three and level five girls' teams brought home a third place All-Around trophy for high scores in all four events -- bars, beam, floor and vault. First-place individual winners were: Lexi Blizzard, level three, floor exercise; Sara Brummer, level five, vault; and Victoria Schepisi, level five, vault and balance beam. The boys' team also received a third-place All-Around trophy.
"We are so proud of our gymnastics team members who have worked very hard to compete on this level," said Dawn Kofler, gymnastics program director at the Brandon Family YMCA. "We're certainly excited about the trophies, but it was also just a great experience for the team to compete with gymnasts from all over the country."
