A Houston County student, who scored a perfect 10 on her bar routine at a gymnastics competition, has a shot of making the state team this weekend.
Rose Bolden, 9, a gymnast from Warner Robins who trains at PunchFront Gymnastics & Cheer, is scheduled to compete Saturday in the Georgia Xcel State Competition in Cartersville.
If she performs “as well as she usually does,” she has a good chance of making the state team, according to Chrystie McIlwain, owner of PunchFront.
To make the state team and represent Georgia in the Region 8 championships, the third-grader at Quail Run Elementary School will need to place among the top six based on all-around scores.
