Kade SMS Student Wins 1st Place in TX State Gymnastics Meet
Kade got 1st Place in the Texas State Gymnastics Meet yesterday in the Individual All Around – The Level 4, 9-year old Boys Champion for the State of Texas. His team, Richardson Gymnastics, finished 3rd in the State behind WOGA Frisco and WOGA Plano.
Last season Kade was so disappointed when he didn’t win any medals. This season he told us he just wanted to win one medal. He worked so hard, and with such focus.
The season started off with a bang – he earned 6 medals and 2nd in the Individual All Around in his first meet. We were thrilled for him! He continued to do very well at each meet this season, getting 2nd in the Individual All Around at every meet. And, his work effort at practice never let up.
Kade’s goal was to score at least 60 (6 events combined score). He scored 61.1. Then Kade’s family waited to see how he placed.
We were so excited as his individual event scores came in (1st Floor, 5th Pommel, 1st Rings, Vault – did not place, 1st Parallel Bars, 2nd High Bar). It was even more exciting when they announced him as the Texas State All Around Winner!!!!
This past quarter Kade also made the St. Monica A-B Honor Roll.
Kade’s parents said, “That is a testament to hard work on his part and the many great teachers and staff at St. Monica.”
