Tammy Morstad shares this photo and says:
Most of the young ladies are the ones that were coached by Traci Walters… [who] passed away from ovarian cancer this past January. Despite all of the hurdles this group faced with their coach’s struggle with ovarian cancer, the girls have had a season of success from beginning to end.
Continuing to be coached by Dayna Wells and other coaches at the gym, many of the girls finish as State Champions. Two of the team [members took] away first place in the AA [All Around] (and other events), proving to all that they are the best gymnasts in Region 7 in VA. Three girls [took away] second in the state, and many others are notable finishers.
These girls put in over 16 hours of practice per week all year round to earn their titles. They deserve recognition for all of their hard work in and out of the gym. These and many other meet results can be found on the VAUSAG website.
We are proud of each and every one of them.
