On Saturday, November 21st the Studios Unlimited Tumblers, which are BACK2BACK USTA KY STATE CHAMPIONS, traveled to Somerset, KY for their opening season meet. Along, with family and friends the athletes had a great first meet! The tumblers competed on trampoline, double-mini and rod floor. The athletes competed 60 times and placed in the TOP 3 47 TIMES!!! They captured 22-1st places, 15-second places and 10-3rd places, along with 4-overall high points.

The STU Team this year has 44 athletes and is very excited to see what the season holds.The next meet will be in Berea, KY in January. Many of the athletes were mandated from Jr. Olympics, meaning because they won the Gold Medal at the Jr. Olympic Games and they are mandated to the next level of competition. This was our first competition at the new levels. The STU Team also has 14 new members to the team this year and this was their first competition. This competition held alot of first time events for the team. The athletes are working very hard for the upcoming USTA National Team Trials in March. Results are as follows:
