Sulphur Springs Gymnastics to Host State Qualifier
America the Beautiful Invitational is the name of the gymnastics competition that will be held at the Sulphur Springs Gymnastics Center from February 28th through March 1st. Why is it called that, you may ask? Not only is it a very important meet for the hundreds of gymnasts that will attend, but it will also be a tribute to a fallen soldier, Allen Mosteiro, who was killed in Iraq. He was the brother to one of the head coaches at the Gymnastics Center. So, to honor all of our current and former members of the American armed forces, all active duty military and their families will be given free admittance to the competition. For more information, call 903-438-0748.
