The team was lead by Taylor Johnson, a Level 8 gymnast, who rejoined the Twisters after her first season in high school gymnastics. She placed second on the floor with a 9.225 and took third in the beam. She also placed sixth on the bars and eighth on the vault. Her all around score of 34.150 was good for sixth place and also qualified her for the 2012
