16-year old Carter Phillips of Dyersville competed in the second of three USTA Elite National Team Trials in Belvidere, Illinois this past month.
Phillips nailed all three of his preliminary passes and then qualified for finals, where he placed sixth overall.
Nearly one hundred gymnasts are vying for a spot on the team. Phillips is the only one in the state of Iowa.
Phillips is a student at Moser School of Dance and Gymnastics and instructor Debbie Moser says they are extremely proud of him and his work ethic.
