Green, a senior, made her first high school gymnastics meet a rousing success Saturday, winning the vault, uneven bars and balance beam en route to the all-around championship at the Annandale Invitational. Her scores on the bars, 9.8, and the beam, 9.7, were school records, as was her all-around tally of 38.5. It was also the best reported all-around score in the state this season.
"I was nervous at first because I hadn't been through the whole process, but my first high school meet was really fun," Green said. "It was a whole new experience."
Before this season, Green was a club gymnast, training out of Classic Gymnastics in Chanhassen, where she had reached elite Level 10. But the long training hours and a desire for a more complete senior year in high school led her to leave the club and join the high school team.
