This is Alexa’s first season in our program.  This photo was a picture from her first state competition where she placed 2nd in the state in the All Around for her age group.  In addition to her gymnastics talents, she has proven she is a leader on the team by always cheering on  her teammates to do their best and giving them encouraging words when things don’t go as they planned.  Her coaches all agree she has been a wonderful addition to our team program.
