P & G Championships Note from Brant

Dear Professional Members,

It was a great honor to be on the floor of the P & G Championships last weekend in St. Louis, Missouri. Not only were the gymnasts incredible, but the showing of New Jersey athletes was spectacular. Maggie Haney of MG Elite and Craig Zappa of ENA Paramus brought great pride to NJ with their professionalism and outstanding coaching.

In the Junior Division, Riley McCusker and Olivia Dunne showed the future strength coming up through the ranks. They performed like champions and they are improving so well. Lauren Hernandez was quite a show stopper with eight solid routines. We all need to support her at Olympic Trials and show the country that New Jersey supports their elite level athletes. Please pay close attention to the NJ Website and Instagram. I will be sending updates from the trials.

Let’s go New Jersey!
