North Bay has its own Fab Five this year. All five of our 8-10 year old TOPs gymnasts who participated in USA Gymnastics TOPs testing, qualified for national testing in their respective age groups. That's a 100% success rate for North Bay TOPs and Head Coach Susie Goodmanson.
In addition, our younger TOPs gymnasts, seven year olds London Moldre, Amaya Ramos and Jayde Ramos all had an excellent first year in our TOPs program.
Eight-year-olds Dreah Bernstine, Ellie Pingol, and Tyler Turner, nine-year-old Madelyn Pierce, and ten-year-old Melanie Naranjo qualified in their respective age divisions to journey to the USA Gymnastics Olympic Training Facility at the Karolyi Ranch in Texas to vie for one of the coveted spots on the 2017 TOPs National Team.
We are so proud of our girls. Way to represent North Bay and the Vallejo community!
In June and July, North Bay's TOPs gymnasts participated in four separate TOPs physical abilities and skills testing sessions to try to qualify as one of the top gymnasts nationwide in each of their age groups. The best 7-year-olds qualify for the TOPs National Diamond Team based solely on their state or regional TOP test scores. The top scoring 8-10 year old gymnasts are invited to the National TOPs Test as National Qualifiers in October at the Olympic Training Center (the Karolyi Ranch) in Huntsville, TX. The most successful gymnasts are named to the TOPs A National Team and the gymnasts with the next 60 highest scores make the TOPs B National Team.
