Gymnasts qualify for national teams

Ten-year-old Jayden Ecker, a student at Allendale Elementary School, qualified for the National TOP’s team. This is USA gymnastics’ Talent Opportunity Program.

The top 300 gymnasts age 8 to 10 of 4,700 in the nation qualify for the national test in Indianapolis where they perform skills and demonstrate physical abilities. The top 100 are selected for the national teams, and Ecker was among those chosen.

An additional 50 gymnasts make the Diamond team for age 7 only. Abby List, who also attends Allendale, and Karlie Czechowicz made the Diamond team.

The girls all train at Gymnastics Unlimited.
