    Say,this question just came to me...as I know that some Synchro. Teams DO have boys on them (I know the Crystalettes as one). The question is..does anyone know if on a Senor Team with a Boy included...if the Boy is also Lifted AS well as the Girl? Or are they not Lifted for any specail reason? Thanks.

    I've never seen a boy being lifted at the Senior level. My guess is that since boys tend to be taller, more muscular and therefore heavier, they aren't chosen as fliers.

    There has been at least one boy, however, vaulted at the Junior level:
