People of Fenton: freshman Eva Berkey


“I have been doing gymnastics since I was six years old through the Hartland Gymnastics Academy. The competitions are always on weekends, we have one or two a month.The first thing I do when I get to a competition is warm-up. The coaches have their official meeting, and after the warm up we go to our events. We compete in front of three judges,after the routine you’re given a score. Over the years I have done a lot of competitions, it is an all-year sport. The higher level you go, the more advanced the skills get. In my gym, I am strongest on vault, so I usually take the lead on that. My favorite thing is having all my teammates supporting me. If you gain a new skill, they will always cheer you on. The coaches are there and they are also very supportive.”
