Manually Entered Results

The 32nd Annual East Coast Championships were held in Brooklyn, NY on 
27th & 28th.  With the help of great weather, we had a very successful 
tournament, with competitors from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, 
Massachusetts, Michigan, Oregon, Toronto, Montreal, and the Czech Republic 
net and freestyle events.  In attendance were the current world champion in 
freestyle circle, Evan Gatesman (who placed 2nd this year in routines at 
world's), last year's women's freestyle world champion, Cassandra Taylor, and 
12-time singles net world champion, Emmanuel Bouchard.
Ken Somolinos- the 2012 ECFC champ- took down this year's vice-world 
Evan Gatesman in routines.   But Evan was able to hold off Ken to win this 
year's circle contest.  In intermediate routines, Ben Babyak performing a great 
routine to take first.  In intermediate circle, NYFA member Johnny Sarah stood 
out above the group and took first place.
In net, the greatest of all time took first place in singles, showing his un-
human talent against a VERY good Dan Greer.  In doubles, Emmanuel 
Bouchard & 
Luc Legault showed their stuff and took first place over the tough team of Dan 
Greer & Martin Cote.  Our friend from the west coast, Brett Milliken, was able 
to get by our ECFC gatekeepe,r Jack Lentz, in intermediate singles net.
Thanks to all our sponsors and most of all thank you to all the players for
