Out of these six states, Dean Hopper had a solid meet placing 6th All-Around in his age division with a 54.15, 4th on Pommel Horse, 6th on Still Rings and 7th on Parallel bars with a 9.7.  His brother Alex Hopper took 8th on Floor. Coach Cory Stephens said the highlight of the meet is that all three boys achieved their press to handstand on rings which is a bonus skill in this level.
