To say the athletes at Top Flight Gymnastics of Columbia faced big challenge last weekend would be an understatement.

It was the biggest in the world.

Competing in the 11th annual Red Roof Inn Buckeye Classic in Columbus, Ohio, Top Flight was up against more than 2,100 gymnasts from 26 states and Canada in one of the largest meets in existence.

And the Columbia team held its own.

Leading the way was Maura Markowitz. Competing in Level 9, Markowitz won the vault (8.9), took second in the floor exercise (8.75) and took fifth on the uneven bars for a 33.2 all-around.

Her teammate, Lindsey Boyer, also placed in an event, taking fourth, with an 8.55 on the floor en route to a 29.9 all-around.

Among Level 10 gymnasts, Gina Califano, Marcene James and Abbey Jones fared well, each scoring between 32 and 33 in the all-around. Califano also took a second-place finish in the vault with a 9.05.

In a separate competition, other team members took part in a Level 8 meet at Baltimore County Gymnastics in Essex.

Yael Sollins won the floor (8.75) and took third on the beam (7.4), and her sister, Aliza, scored seconds on the floor (8.7) and vault (8.5).

Jennifer Hanna also did well, scoring an 8.3 on the vault for third place.

The team now is preparing for this weekend's Columbia Challenge Women's Invitational at the University of Maryland's North Gym.

The meet, sponsored by Top Flight, will run all day tomorrow (with levels 8, 9 and 10) and Saturday (with levels 5, 6 and 7).
