SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) - Some 300 gymnasts will gather in Spearfish this weekend for a gymnastics tournament hosted by Black Hills State University.

The Spearfish Invite Saturday and Sunday at the Donald E. Young Center is drawing 14 gymnastics clubs from South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming.

The meet features athletes from recreational to the highest levels of the Junior Olympics.

Spearfish Gymnastics Academy is the host club. Academy coach Chris Summers says it’s important to the athletes because they get to compete in front family, friends and gymnastics fans. He says such meets gives kids an opportunity to face tougher competition.
