Congratulations to Maxx Smithlin, a third grade student at Eastgate Elementary who placed first in three events for his age division at the Trampoline and Tumbling State Championship. 
Students from across Washington compete for the state championship with hopes to qualify for the national championship.

Smithlin will go on to compete in the Regional Championship in Las Vegas, Nevada, competing in his three events: trampoline, power tumbling and double mini.  With his three first place finishes at the state level, Smithlin has already secured his bid to the National Championship in Providence, Rhode Island in June.
