Manning Elite TNT returns from Nationals

For the 20th consecutive season, Manning head coach Chad Ganaway has a National Champion.

Manning Elite TNT returned from the Stars and Stripes Championships in West Palm Beach this week with three national titles, with Kylie Ortiz, Madison Creamer, and Ganaway’s daughter Caleigh bringing home gold. The team had four other competitors medal at the event as well, earning two silvers and two bronzes.

Despite their successes, the team played it cool at the gym on Friday.

“It wasn’t that scary, but I was kind of nervous,” said Caleigh, who won in level 5. “But I did really good and I’m really proud of myself.”

“I just knew I had to try my best and that really all that counted was trying my best and doing my hardest,” added Ortiz.

Stars and Stripes took place in Florida last weekend, giving TNT teams levels five through seven a chance to compete against the nation’s best.
