She has qualified for both regional and national Jr. Olympic gymnastics teams for the last 4 years. She is a two time USA gymnastics national team member.

In other Homecoming activities, the Juniors beat out other grade levels to win the coveted Cavalier Class Spirit Cup, which goes to the class that accumulates the most points all week for supporting the overall theme of Homecoming week. Students earn points for a class T-shirt design and for their float entry.

The sophomores won first place in Tshirt design, freshmen came in second, junior third and seniors fourth

For float entries, the juniors took first place, the seniors second, sophomores third and freshmen fourth.

Old School Video Games was this year’s Homecoming theme.

Up against the freshman’s Donkey Kong, the sophomores Tetris and the seniors Super Mario, the juniors carried off the top honors for their Pac Man float entry which recreated a large Pac- Man chasing a ghost labeled Northwestern along with other ghosts labeled with the names of other competing schools.

The winning sophomore T-shirt design was Heather Gray and featured a Tetris game board on the front with the Tetris shapes crushing opposing schools in the division. The backs of the shirts had the quote “Game Over; The Odds Were Stacked Against Them,’ which turned out to be case in CA’s 58-0 victory over Northwestern in the football game.
