Ring masters bars at state meet
By: Journal Sports Staff
Auburn Gymnastics Center’s Katie Ring turned in two stellar performances to earn a coveted finish in the top-10 at the level 5 state gymnastics championships Sunday in Livermore. Ring, 13, competed against other gymnasts her age from around Northern California. She earned a 9.0 on the bars and also vaulted well to earn seventh place. “There was a lot of stiff competition in her age division on vault and we knew going into the meet she would have to focus and give her best,” coach Natalie Otis said. “As it turned out she delivered and made us very proud.” Ring had been working to earn a 9.0 on bars all season long, according to the coach. “We couldn’t be more proud,” Otis said. “Way to finish strong.” Ring will soon be moving up to join the level 6 team at Auburn Gymnastics Center.
