ROCK SPRINGS — Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and all the regulations that have gone with it, the Legacy Gymnastics Team has had a good competitive season thus far. They have all been working hard at learning new skills, learning new routines and improving their abilities overall.

The team this year consists of 19 girls ages 8 to 14. There are four level threes, ten level fours, two level fives, two level sixes and one level eight. Two of the girls competed at a lower level for their first one or two meets of the season, then gained their mobility score and moved up one level.

All of the girls are working towards earning an all-around score of 30.000 or higher to qualify for the Wyoming State meet in March. Over half the girls have already qualified.
