Local youth gymnast vaults into state competition next month
March 23, 2022
A La Conner Elementary School second grader is already a first-class gymnast.
Lailoni Edwards, 7, who practices four times weekly at Ground Zero Gymnastics in Mount Vernon, placed second all-round and first in vault in her division at a youth meet in Shelton.
That performance qualified her for state trials April 9-11 in Tacoma.
She is proof, at such a young age, that dedication and discipline can equal success.
“I think the most important aspect of her accomplishments in gymnastics is it is truly her passion and drive,” Lailoni’s mom, Anna Young, told the Weekly News.
