SPEARFISH — The Spearfish Gymnastics Academy collected three team titles at the South Dakota State USA Junior Olympics Championships that ended Sunday at the Young Center, in Spearfish.

Spearfish collected 110.650 points to win the Level 7 team title.

The Level 4 team scored 112.325 points for top honors, and the Level 10 team finished first with 103.450 points.

The Level 3 team for Spearfish captured third-place honors with 112.200 points. A score of 109.350 points enabled Spearfish to finish third in the Level 8 division.

Level 6 competition featured Spearfish and its fifth-place score of 108.250 points.

Spearfish Gymnastics Academy head coach Phil Summers said the Level 4 team stood out while the Level 7 team exceeded expectations, and the gymnasts stepped up quite a bit.

“Two kids hit their routines as well as they could, and one other really stepped up,” Summers said in describing the Level 7 team’s success. He agreed those three turned in their best scores when it counted most.

Summers said the Level 4 gymnasts did what they have been doing all season. “They have been dominant all year, and they are a good group of kids,” he added.

All-American Gymnastics Academy earned team titles at three levels. The Sioux Falls team claimed top honors at Level 6 (110.775 points), Level 8 (110.600 points), and Level 9 (110.350 points).

Just Jymnatics of Rapid City won two team titles: Level 3 (113.175 points) and Level 5 (108.125 points).
