Last weekend Clare competed it the Region 5 Gymnastic Championships! She competed against the best level 6 gymnasts across 5 states (Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan) where she placed 1st in her floor routine (champion) 5th on vault and 9th on beam. To get a 1st place finish takes grit, determination, strength, growth mindset and more!!! Congratulations to Clare and keep up the good work! AGS PROUD!
