MAT Tumbling/Trampoline competed in Melcher-Dallas for a one day USTA/AAU tumbling meet on March 3. This was a meet that focuses more on the lower levels of power tumbling, “

This was an excellent meet to allow some of the new MAT team members to get out there and compete for the first time,” Bailey Littell said “This was a fun meet and I was a little nervous, but I had so much and I can’t wait to our next meet.”

MAT has a few more invitational meets, including their home meet on April 13 and 14 at MCC before competing in the Iowa State Championships for both USAG and USTA. For more information about tumbling, contact MAT at mattumblers.com or call 752-6373.
