Jaelina began gymnastics at 5yrs old in Vacaville CA. From the beginning, she exhibited such a joy for performing. She began competing in 2015 as a level 3 gymnast. At her first state competition for Northern California, she earned a second on floor and third on beam. As a level 4 in 2016, Jaelina started to show particular strength on floor and beam, earning many respective first and second place finishes on both events including vault and four all around titles through the season. At level 4 state, she finished fifth all around. As a level 5 in 2017, she began her season at the Dare to Dream Invitational where she earned a first on bars, floor, beam, and the all around title. She concluded her season as a state beam champion, second on floor, and third all around.
Jaelina’s optional career began as a level 6 in 2018. Her first meet began at the California Grand Invitational with a first on floor. Through this season, she consistently earned top five finishes on all events. At state, she had a solid performance all around and earned a third place title on floor and beam. Her level 6 season concluded at her first Regional Championship for Region 1 with a remarkable first on bars, first on beam, and first all around regional title.
In 2019, Jaelina had a notably accomplished season! Under the guidance of coaches Melia O' Quinn and Ashot Gasparyan of San Mateo Gymnastics, she competed level 7 and level 8. Her first Level 7 meet was Dec 2018 at the NorCal Judges Cup Level 7 State Team qualifier. At this meet, she earned first on vault, third on floor, and qualified first all around to represent Nor Cal for the National Judges Cup Level 7 State Team Challenge held in Kansas Mo in Jan 2019. Here, she helped her team win the first place team title. She earned first on floor and beam, third on bars, and third all around. Two weeks later, she began her level 8 season at the Lady Luck Invitational where she earned a second on beam and first on floor. Through her season, she continued to grow and evolve as a gymnast and contribute to her team in team placements. At state, she earned a second on beam and first on floor and a first all around state champion title. At Regional Championships, she took a second place floor title. Jaelina valued the experience of her 2019 season as the most memorable in her gymnastics career thus far, maturing as an athlete, and persevering through the rigors of gymnastics, commuting, academics, and physical growth.
At this time, Jaelina is a second year Level 8 gymnast currently training under Andrew and Erin Pileggi at Gymnastics Zone in Napa Ca. She is excited about the new relationship and opportunity to continue to grow and develop under their expertise. Jaelina's short term goal is to continue to learn and progress to become a solid competitor on all four events with dedication and persistence through any hurdles along the way. Her long term goal is to be someplace she can thrive academically and be most relevant in college gymnastics. Jaelina is humbled and honored to be an MSO Gymnast of the Year nominee among so many other amazing gymnasts!
