Texas was proud to send six athletes to represent Team USA at the 2012 World Age Group Championships held in Orlando, FL, April 20-22, 2012. This was the first time the event has been held outside of Europe since it’s inception.
All six Texas athletes train with AGSA in San Antonio, TX under the direction of Vladimir Vladev and Michelle Merwerth.
The women’s pairs of Maren Merwarth & Kitty Davis and Katarina Partalas & Taylor Mayo both had strong performances in the 11-16 age group preliminaries, finishing in 5th and 8th place respectively out of 31 pairs. Since only one pair is allowed to qualify to finals from each county, Merwarth & Davis advanced and finished in 5th place overall.
The junior elite women’s pair of Lillian Robertson & Jessica Renteria also had a solid performance, finishing in 12th place in the 12-19 age group.
Also competing in Orlando from AGSA was the 11-16 age group women’s pair of Ana Caballero Gonzalez and Isabella Melendez de Alba who represented Team Mexico.
