I am a 15 year old Level 10 gymnast at SCEGA Gymnastics. I came to SCEGA Gymnastics in 2015 as an 8 year old level 4 and a TOPs kid. My first year I made it to TOPs National Testing, and completed my Level 4 season as the SoCal State Beam and Floor Champion. In 2017 I scored out of Level 5 and moved to Level 7, and continued my TOPs journey. My second year I made TOPs B Team and invited to Development Invite Camp. For Level 7, I was the SoCal State Beam Silver Medalist and Region 1 Regional Beam Champion. I performed a 9.95 beam routine at the Long Beach Open!
In 2018, I moved on to Level 8 and did my last year in TOPs as a 10 year old. I was a TOPs A Team Member, attended A Camp and won Physical Abilities. I was the Level 8 SoCal State Bar Champion, and Floor Silver Medalist, and the Region 1 Regional Bar and Beam Champion, and the Floor and AA Silver Medalist.
In 2019, I competed as a Level 9. What a great season! I was the Level 9 SoCal State Beam Champion, Bars and AA Bronze Medalist. I went on to Regionals and had my best meet of the season! I was the Region 1 Regional Beam, Floor and AA Champion, Bars Bronze Medalist, with an AA score of a 38.275. And I hit my beam routine with a 9.90! I qualified to Westerns, but unfortunately due to illness, I was not able to attend.
In 2020, I worked hard to compete as a Level 10. I had all my routines ready to go, but broke 4 toes right before season started. In order to get back out there, my coaches made the decision to compete level 9 again, and I was excited to try for Westerns, since I missed it the year before. I competed bars and beam in 3 meets, winning beam each time (high score of 9.825) and bars once (high score of 9.60). Unfortunately, right as I was ready to add vault and floor back in before State meet, the country shut down for Covid. As we all know, post season was completely canceled.
Here we are at the beginning of 2021, and I made it to Level 10! So far, I started the season at Fiesta Bowl and competed all 4 events. I hit all routines, and won bars (9.725) and floor (9.775), 2nd on beam (9.60). It was especially exciting because I debuted a new floor routine that I love! I came in 2nd AA (37.90). My hope is to have a successful season and make it to Nationals as a first year level 10.
