Mackenzie Blain, who will be a seventh grader in Meyersville this fall, won her first national championship in gymnastics last month in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Blain won in the double mini event and also finished 10th out of 29 in trampoline level nine.
Blain explains the double mini as, “You run, jump, do a skill, jump off and do another skill.”
