AUGUSTA — Oxford Hills Gymnastics from Mechanic Falls had a strong showing in the 2020 Never Give Up, Never Quit Invitational held at the Augusta Armory.

This is an annual fundraiser hosted by Decal Gymnastics to benefit the Travis Mills Foundation. This year’s meet included guest appearances by University of Michigan gymnast Olivia Karas and Travis Mills himself. Gov. Janet Mills was also spotted checking out the action. Proceeds from this year’s event are still being calculated but are estimated to reach $8,000.

Members of the Oxford Hills Gymnastics competitive and rec teams had good showings. The Xcel bronze and silver teams both took first and the Xcel gold team took home a third-place banner.
