Los Alamos Atomic Tumblers from Los Alamos School of Gymnastics on North Mesa brought home gold from the March 19 New Mexico State Championships at G-Force Gymnastics in West Albuquerque. 
They won first place team in both the Gold and Platinum divisions of competition, against many much larger teams. (To calculate team scores, the top three gymnasts in each event count.) They also won eight all around medals and 34 individual event medals. 
They qualified 10 Platinum and Gold gymnasts to go on to the Region 3 Championships in Galveston Texas in May. Region 3 consists of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Kansas and Wyoming. (Silver and bronze division gymnasts are not eligible for regional qualification.)
Los Alamos had four gymnasts contribute to the Platinum first place team victory. All four gymnasts came home with hardware. All four also qualified for regionals. Teammate Brianna Fryer who has been Los Alamos' high scorer was qualified but unable to compete with a broken foot. 
By virtue of scoring 36s and 37s all season, a petition for her to compete in regionals with her team mates has been honored. The Platinum team is coached by Loui Janecky.
