Grace Wittmer-George has been a gymnast for Sartell since she was four years old. She joined gymnastics when she was younger, and she taught herself how to do a cartwheel and tried to teach herself more. Then her mom signed her up.

Grace started competing in meets at the age of ten. Grace says that her favorite event to perform is floor because she is best at it, and it is the most fun.  Grace shared, “My main struggle would have to be performing my routines in front of people at our meets.”

One of Grace’s proudest accomplishments was when her team made it to state in her sophomore year of high school.

I’ve stuck with gymnastics since I joined when I was little because it pushes me to do better in life, and it distracts me from the outside world when I’m performing.”

— Grace Wittmer-George

In her seven years of doing competitive gymnastics,  Grace has suffered and recovered from shin splints, a sprained ankle, and a fractured elbow.

Grace is looking forward to competing at the rest of her meets this year, and hopefully making it to state with her team again this year.
