The Class 5A gymnastics state championships begin today at Thornton High School and both teams from Fort Collins — Rocky Mountain and Fort Collins high schools — will be represented.
Starting at 2 p.m., the two-day event will begin its first rotation of vault, beam, bars and floor routines.
The final rounds for 5A will take place Saturday, also at 2 p.m.
Fort Collins hasn’t won a team gymnastics state title since 2002, when it was a joint program with Poudre, but finished third last season. Rocky Mountain claimed three consecutive titles from 2003-05 and took home gold before that in 2000.
