In the Trampoline preliminary round of competition today at the 2011 World Championships in Birmingham, England, the U.S. women’s trampoline team finished in 5th, which qualifies them for the team finals event tomorrow night. The team is comprised of Dakota Earnest, Alaina Williams and Savannah Vinsant, all three members of Region 3, as well as fellow U.S. teammate Nani Vercruyssen.

In addition, Savannah Vinsant finished in 10th place in the individual results and qualified to the individual finals event on Sunday.
