Kutie-head Katelynn!!!

Today we are back to the regularly scheduled GYMNAST OF THE DAY posts! Today's gymnast of the day is the ever so cute, bouncy, bubbly:

KATELYNN!!!

Oh, isn't she cute!!?? She is yet another sophomore. (We've got 5 this year!)

Katelynn is such a joy to be around. When I think of a descriptive word to describe Katelynn, the first word that comes to my mind is bubbly. The girl's got spunk! In gymnastics and in her personality! She is an extremely hard worker and has accomplished SO many skills in gymnastics over the past 2 years. We are so lucky to have her work ethic on our team. The girl is motivated!

What I like about Katelynn:
Oh.. what's not to like about Katelynn!! I love how smiley the girl is. She's SO bubbly and full of life that you can't help but smile at the little thing! Oh, and she is tiny too! She's our little shortie. =)

Greatest Accomplishment:
I would say bars have been her biggest accomplishment. She came to us last year as a freshman not being able to do anything on bars. This year, she is competing varsity for us and doing a great job! Every meet her routine gets a little better and her score keeps inching and inching up. I can't wait to see what skills you throw next year, girlie!

Funny Story:
Katelynn sweetie.. I'm sorry but I have to tell this story!! Last year on the way to a meet I glance over to the seat beside me where she's sitting and her cheeks are all puffed out. Abby, another gymnast, tells me that Katelynn just puked in her mouth. Yep, her mouth is full of chunks. So I'm searching the mini-bus for anything I can have this poor girl throw up in. Of course the bus doesn't have a trash receptacle because they WANT us to throw all our trash on the floor! Grrr.. Anywho, then the Ritz Chips bag catch my eye.. yep, the girls are gunna have to give up their beloved unopened bag of Ritz Chips. I yelled at Sarah to hand over the bag so Katelynn can dispose of the grossness in her mouth. The girls have a DEBATE in the back of the bus discussing if they want to give up the BBQ or the Sour Cream and Onion. Gotta love my girls.. Ended up giving me the BBQ so Katelynn could finally puke in it.


What makes Katelynn, Katelynn:
Katelynn's backhandsprings make Katelynn, Katelynn! The girl flies backwards with her arms and legs about 2 feet apart. She boing's her head on the ground sometimes.. but they are getting MUCH better! She's trying so hard to do as we say and glue her legs together and get her hands closer together. She also does a fun boobie-bounce with her long-hang kips on bars. =) You gotta stop doing that or your poor boobies are never gunna grow!
And like I said, Katelynn always has such a postitive attitude and is such a team player.

How I am proud of Miss Katelynn:
I am mostly proud of Katelynn for working so hard. This girl reaches for the stars and does everything she can to accomplish her goals. I can see SO much potential in lil' miss Katelynn and am so excited to see what she accomplishes in the next 2 years at WHS.

Okay, bloggers! Let's make Katelynn's day by commenting on how super good she's doing in g-to-the-nastics! And you can tell her how cute she is too. =)

Yes Katelynn is the also one of the bounciest people I have ever seen! Whenever she falls it is hilarious! The best is whenever she falls and literally bounces right back up! I'm tellin' ya, you need to put that butt bounce in your floor routine ASAP! ha ha! I love watching how much you've accomplished just in this season alone! Keep truckin' girl! We love how much of a determined gymnast you are! Oh yeah, and the puke story was also one of the grossest things I have ever heard when I was told about that:-) Love ya Katelynn! Linz

Keep working hard on everything. You really are improving. I don't remember scores, but I thought your bar routine last night was the best I'd seen you do. Way to go!
