The MAT Tumbling/Trampoline team finished its state competition season with a terrific state meet. The USTA Iowa State Championships were held at Hy-Vee Hall in Des Moines. For the second year in a row, the MAT team came away with all first-place titles in all three events - Power Tumbling, Olympic Trampoline and Double-Mini trampoline. MAT also claimed the overall top team award and sweeping the state meet back-to-back years.

"I was very proud of our athletes," MAT coach Jeff Brothers said. "They approached the state competition with hard work and determination."

It defiantly paid off with MAT getting 27 State Champions and 24 runners-up. Nearly every MAT team member qualified this year for the USTA Nationals, which will be held in Madison, Wisc., this June.
