Gymnasts Celebrate Championship Season

Members of the state-champion St. Joseph’s Academy gymnastics team celebrated the 2021 with an awards party on May 14 in the Activity Center.

Because delivery of the team’s state championship medals was delayed, faculty moderator Brenda LeBlanc presented each gymnast and the coaches with replica medals printed in the Andrea Clesi McMakin ’74 STEM Lab. Head coach Natalie Pitts congratulated team members on an outstanding season in which they won all three competition levels on their way to the overall state championship.
