Our USAG Level 9 team just competed in their Regional Championships! Located in Maryland, it brought together the best gymnasts in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia who qualified after competing in the State Championships. Of our two Level 9 girls, not only did both Rebecca and Danielle qualify, but they both qualified with amazing scores. Becca was even the State Champion this year!
Now Becca is also Regional Vault Champion. The girls who placed first through seventh all-around are now going to the Eastern National Championships in New York this May, and since Becca placed eighth all-around she is the first alternate.
Both Rebecca and Danielle have been taking classes here at GU since they were little girls, supported by their families and coaches as they honed their skills and perfected their sport.
National Honor Society and Technical Honor Society student Danielle lives in Asbury and will be going to college to study Nursing. In her own words, “Every new day is another chance to change your life.”
Rebecca, who achieved an Outstanding Effort in Business at school, resides in Washington and will be attending James Madison University this fall. She is the Level 8 Vault State Champion record holder. She says that “Gymnastics is 30% physical and 70% mental. When performing and learning skills, you don’t need anyone to believe in you, you just have to believe in yourself.”
