5 local gymnasts to compete at state meet

Four Shoreline gymnasts will compete at the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association 1A/2A/3A gymnastics tournament, to be held Thursday and Friday at the Tacoma Dome Exhibition Hall.

Senior Christina Warner (all-around) and sophomore Genevieve Trimbell (vault, beam, floor) will represent Shorewood. This will be Warner’s second trip to the state meet, while Trimbell qualified in her first year of high school gymnastics.

“Christina has increased her difficulty (level) on vault and beam, and the vault and floor are her top events,” Thunderbirds coach Susan Riley said. “She came in day one this year as strong as she was last year and progressed from there. She’s hoping she can make the final (round) at state. Genevieve made an immediate impact on our team score. She’s driven and competitive in a good way. She really pushes herself to do the best job she can to help the team.”

Shorecrest senior Julianne Oshiro (bars, floor) qualified for the state meet for a third time. She’ll be joined by teammate Victoria Collins (balance beam), a junior making her second trip to the state meet.

“Julianne set a school record in the floor event this year,” said Riley, also the Scots’ coach. “She’d love to make the finals on the floor. Victoria is not a club gymnast, but wanted to do high school gymnastics to have fun, and she’s having fun. She’s a good role model. Her best event by far is the beam, so it’s not a surprise she qualified (in that event).”

Monroe freshman Emily Sandoval qualified for the 4A meet, to be held Friday and Saturday at the Tacoma Dome Exhibition Hall. Sandoval will compete in the floor routine.
