Cambridge YMCA Gymnastics team shines at National Meet


The Cambridge YMCA gymnastics team has enjoyed numerous successful trips to the Gym C YMCA Gymnastics Nationals competition under the leadership of veteran coach Cheryl Matthews.

This year’s event was held at the SeaGate Convention Center and hosted by the YMCA of Greater Toledo in June and featured more than 150 teams and 5,000 young gymnasts.

“We have always done well at nationals,” Matthews explained. “It seems like we get better each year, but have just not been able to crack that Top 10.”

That dry spell is now over as the Cambridge YMCA Level 6 (ages 10-14) team of Alonna Allen, Jade Tippel, Sophia Johnson, MaryBeth Yoder and Paisley Williams captured the runner-up team spot with an impressive score of 111,475. Allen and Tippel also finished as individual all-around National champions.
