Congratulations to junior gymnast, Julia Petty, as she has been selected as Athlete of the Week! Julia helped lead the Explorer gymnastics team to a top five finish at the State meet in Columbus on Friday. She also competed in the Individual meet on Saturday, where she finished the all-around competition 18th overall, including a top ten finish (9th) on bars.
Despite being sick for most of the week leading up to competition, Julia still turned in a number of strong routines. After qualifying for the individual competion alone last year, she said it was extremely exciting to be down at the State meet with her teammates this year. Julia also enjoyed meeting all the top gymnasts from across the state.
Julia hopes that the team can return to the State meet next season and would tell any young gymnast that they have to find consistency to be successful.
Congratulations on a tremendous season, Julia!
