The St. Cloud Co-op Gymnastics team is back in the Class AA State Tournament.  The team consists of 12 kids from 3 schools; Tech, Cathedral and Apollo.  Seven of the kids are from Tech, 4 from Cathedral and 1 from Apollo.  St. Cloud is one of 8 teams that will participate in the State Tournament Friday.  The field of 8 consists of defending state champion, Stillwater and last year's runner up, Lakeville North.

I talked with St. Cloud head coach Joel Stark-Haws on WJON today.  Listen to my conversation with him below.
