Prospective Collegiate Athletes

Many past GAC gymnasts have been recruited by colleges for both Gymnastics and Acro & Tumbling, and we aim to continue that legacy of greatness with each passing year. Scroll down to see some of our current upper-level athletes and what they could bring to your collegiate program.

I have been doing gymnastics since I was four years old, and immediately fell in love with the sport. I started competing at the age of six. I love the rush of competing and the excitement I feel when I am performing. I am now a sophomore at Bishop England High School and am going into my fourth year of level 10. I am the South Carolina State level 10 vault, bars, beam, floor and all-around champion. I also earned second place on floor at regionals and third place on beam. I love gymnastics and am excited about the seasons ahead.

I attend Bishop England High School with a South Carolina Uniform Grading Policy GPA of 5.0045 and am ranked 4th in my class. I have been in competitive gymnastics for 11 years and have qualified for Regional 8 regionals four times and Eastern Nationals once. I regularly participate in volunteer work through my church and my school. I also swim competitively for my high school and with a Summer league in Charleston. While I enjoy these things, I really look forward to furthering my gymnastics career throughout college and cannot wait for this season.
