Exploring the Women's Field at P&G Champs

4:24 AM

Seven of the Senior Women competing at the 2013 P&G National Championships competed as Seniors at last year's events (Kyla Ross, Elizabeth Price, McKayla Maroney, Kennedy Baker, Brenna Dowell, Mykayla Skinner and Abigail Milliet). Lexie Priessman, Madison Desch and Simone Biles went 1, 2, and 3 respectively in the Junior All Around at the 2012 Championships. At the recent Secret U.S. Classic, Kyla Ross won over Texas Dreams gymnast Peyton Ernst, with Dowell finishing in third. McKayla Maroney dominated on the Vault, Ross won the Uneven Bars, with Ernst earning the high score on the Balance Beam and Priessman outclassing the field on the Floor Exercise. 

There are so many big names in the Junior field and really I could mention them all, just like I could with the Seniors. However this year's Secret Classic saw Bailie Key win the All Around over Amelia Hundley and Veronica Hults. Hults was the Uneven Bars champion with Nia Dennis, Norah Flatley and Lauren Hernandez earning the Vault, Balance Beam and Floor Exercise honors respectively. 

The Junior Women get the Championships underway on the 15th of August at 1.00pm (local time) with the Seniors competing at 7.30pm. They then return to the XL Center on the 17th of August, with the Juniors competing at 2.00pm and the Seniors competing at 7.30pm.
