Girls Competitive Team 2017 – 2018
2017-18 marks our sixth year with a competitive team here at Cobra! This year we are hosting an Xcel Team with Bronze, Silver and Gold levels as well as a Junior Olympic Team with Levels 3, 6, 7 and 8. The 57-member team travels throughout Vermont and New England from November through May competing in sanctioned USA Gymnastics Meets. They compete all four Olympic Events including Vault, Bars, Balance Beam and Floor Exercise.
Head Coaches for the season include Shelby Collett and Kathy St.Pierre with our amazing assistant coaches including Gail McGann, Topsy King, Lori Bullett, Julia Waite, Bonnie Watson and Bob Abbott.
Our girls team resonates qualities of compassion, dedication and diligence and as a result we have found success in both our team and individual accomplishments.
Our sixth year team veteran, MacKenzie Carlson, Level 7, has not only be inducted into the Sociedad honoraria Hispanic, but is also Miss Teen Vermont 2017-18.
Mackenzie was a part of the Vermont Regional Xcel Gold team two years in a row during the 2013-14 season and the 2014-15 season.
Abby McChesney, a fifth year veteran of the team was awarded the Meredith Brooks McDermott scholarship in the Visual/Performing Arts at Long Trail School this year. Abby was also a part of the Vermont Regional Xcel Gold team during the 2016-17 competitive season.
Congratulations to Ella Tashjian for being our first Level 7 athlete to qualify for the 2016-17 Vermont Regional Team. Ella took home a Bronze medal on Floor with a score of 9.675.
