The Gym Cubs are the Champions!
Congratulations to our Gym Cubs and Coach Melissa Gayé for a very successful day at the LHSAA Gymnastics State Championship held at Baton Rouge Magnet High School on April 15, 2023. The Level 8 Gym Cubs took home the first-ever state championship in MCA history! The Level 8 gymnasts are Jourdyn Dwyer, Arianna Puglis, Jeanne Marie Savoie, Meghan Mocklin, Nola Simoneaux, and Emily Chaplain.
Level 8 individual overall awards went to Arianna Puglis, 5th place, and Meghan Mocklin, 6th place.
No doubt it was a team effort, with the Level 3 and Level 4 gymnasts putting in the work and finishing strong.

Grace Wallace’s impressive vault landed her a 9.275, and Natalie Doiron scored a 9.375 on her vault. Stella Fontenot’s vault proved successful at a 9.225.
