Sisters Greta and Sophie Johnson of Hendricks are heading to the Minnesota State Gymnastics Meet at the University of Minnesota Pavilion to represent Hendricks on Saturday, Feb. 24 in the individual championships.
Greta, who says she is fully recovered from a torn ACL sustained last year and feeling better than ever, claimed the Section 3A uneven bar title at sections to advance, also placing fifth on the floor exercise. A senior at HPS, this will be her fifth time representing HPS at the State Gymnastics competition. “I’m more excited than nervous this time,” said Greta. “I’m feeling better than ever and am glad to be sharing this with my sister.”
