Congratulations to sophomore Bridget Killian, member of the Legacy Elite Gymnastics team in Carol Stream, who recently qualified to compete at the Women’s Junior Olympic National Championships in Fort Worth, Texas on May 7, 2016.
In March, Bridget placed 2nd All Around for her age group, Senior A, in the Illinois State Level 10 gymnastics meet held in Grayslake, Ill. This placement qualified her to represent Illinois in the Regionals.
Last weekend, Bridget competed in the Region 5 (Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio) Championships in Bourbonnais, Ill. She was both the Floor and All Around Champion for her age group in Level 10. She also placed 2nd on the Vault and Beam and 3rd on Bars. Her performance has qualified her to compete in and represent Region 5 at the Nationals.
“I’m super excited that I made it to Nationals, because I’ve worked really hard,” said Bridget. Her mom, Jackie, agrees that Bridget does work hard and said it’s a big time commitment, but she enjoys watching Bridget perform and feels “truly blessed.”
