Also, in her first meet competing at Level 6, Hailee Blau took the title in Double Mini.
Last Saturday, the team was on the road again, this time in Kirkland for the Jungle Fun Meet. It was a clean sweep in Level 4 tumbling, as Hammitt, Bayne and Kelly Gruenwald took the top three spots.
Lauren Aspery won Level 6 Trampoline in the 13-and-over division, and Blau was the champion for the Level 6 Double Mini 11/12-year-old group.
