Clay senior gymnast Maddy Gladieux won top honors at the Three Rivers Athletic Conference meet and was named the league’s Gymnast of the Year.
Gladieux also qualified as an individual for every event, including the all-around, at the state meet, which was held Feb. 28-29 at Hilliard Bradley High School in suburban Columbus.
During the regular season, Gladieux won every meet except one, in which she finished second, and was also a district champion. Her highest scores this year are vault, 9.2; bars, 9.0; beam, 9.125; floor, 9.25 and all-around, 36.325.
At the district meet, she placed first in the all-around (36.325), second in the vault (9.0), bars (8.95) and floor (9.25) and fourth in the beam (9.125). She is also a district and TRAC all-academic selection.
“She has worked incredibly hard this year on all her skills and routines and it shows at each and every meet,” Clay coach Faye Smith said.
“She had a little trouble with beam at the beginning of the season, but really pulled it all together at the district meet. Her strongest event is the bars, but she excels at keeping all her routines clean and consistent which has allowed her to have a lot of success this year at the high school level.
“I am so proud of her and all she has been able to accomplish this year,” Faye continued, adding that Smith and Gladieux were “very excited” about the opportunity heading into the state meet.
