Gymnastics Results


In the Women’s division 5, members of the Level 4 Team qualified for States with their performances, including: Grace Cornell, Natalie Simonds, Elizabeth Durant, Olivia Allaire and Ellie DelSesto. Their individual performances on events demonstrated the level of work and determination that characterizes the gymnasts at NHA Gymnastics. Grace Cornell placed third on Uneven Bars and finished in third place with her All Around score. Olivia Allaire placed second on Balance Beam and for her All Around score. In the Level 7 division Kristina Lantz, Talia Datilio and Sammi DuBois qualified for States with their stellar performances. Kristina Lantz placed first on Balance Beam and Uneven Bars, finishing with a strong second place showing for her All Around score. The Level 9 Team won the second place Team award and had impressive performances from Ellie Johnston with a first place for her Uneven Bar routine. Nicole Lanouette placed first in Vault, second in Balance Beam and second place All Around. Caille Mallory had a great start to her season placing third for her Uneven Bars routine.

The gymnasts have also been training at the YMCA in Plaistow and will also be working out intermittently at the UNH campus in Durham while waiting for their gym to be operational again. This event has brought out the best in the NHA Gymnastics coaches and owners as well as the athletes, displaying time and again why this gym is the place to be. They have united in the face of adversity in order to continue pursuing excellence in gymnastics. This experience has had a profound impact on their team bond. They continue each day striving to find the positive in every situation, which is one of the true strengths of this gym. Not only do the coaches teach the young men and women how to be the best at their sport, they also teach them an even more important skill: when something truly challenging gets in your way, nothing can divide you if you work as a team and support one another. Being a team isn’t merely a title at NHAAGS, it is a way of life.
