We continue to be impressed every time our gymnasts compete, and this past weekend was no exception.

Their hard work and dedication to the sport of gymnastics is incredible and we love watching these ladies develop and master skills each and every day. WVGS is very proud of our Level 10's!
We would also like to extend our sincere appreciation to their parents and families. We know those early morning practices, countless hours of lessons and time on the road driving meet to meet can sometimes take a toll but we thank you for supporting your daughters, for being their biggest cheerleader and role models and most importantly for allowing them to follow their dreams!
