Going for Gold!
Elise Haukenes is a level 9 gymnast currently training with the YMCA Angels in Arlington, VA and is coached by Nancy Nunez, Tom Blakeman, Alina McDonald and Colleen Davis. She recently competed at Level 9 Regionals in Hampton, VA where she performed 4 beautiful routines which helped her to place 4th All Around qualifying her to Eastern Nationals on April 30, 2016 which will be held in Virginia Beach. She is the first YMCA Angels' gymnast to qualify for such an event and has worked very hard to achieve this honor. Her best event at Regionals was the floor exercise where she placed 1st with a 9.5 showing off her beautiful artistry, dance and spectacular tumbling. Her other event scores were 9.225 on Vault, 8.95 on Bars, and 9.075 on Beam. Her coaches could not be more proud of her and are excited for this wonderful opportunity to represent the YMCA Angels and Region 7 at Eastern Nationals.
