Elevate the Stage is a podium-style gymnastics competition for NCAA and J.O. teams, and FloGymnastics is excited to again bring you live coverage of the meets in the 2019 season.
The competitions in 2018 featured some of the best club gymnasts across the country, and many of them are moving on to compete in NCAA this season. There are even a few gymnasts who competed in JO at Elevate the Stage in 2018, and will be competing at Elevate the Stage meets in 2019, but this time for their NCAA team.
Sterlyn Austin | Georgia
Austin competed at the 2018 Elevate Augusta competition representing her club team Georgia Elite. She won floor and placed third all-around with a strong 37.175. A powerful gymnast, Austin competes a Yurchenko full on vault and a tuck full-in on floor. This year she concluded her J.O. career at nationals where she also scored a 37.175, for 29th all-around.

We saw Hofelich at Elevate Toledo where she won all-round with a huge 38.15 and also won vault, beam, and floor. She competed a strong Yurchenko full to earn an impressive 9.8, and notched 9.625s on beam and floor. A five-year level 10 gymnast from Oakland Gymnastics Training Center, Hofelich has competed at JO Nationals the past two years, scoring in the 37s both years.
