To qualify for the state championship competition, Anna had to compete and achieve minimum scores in Level 7 gymnastics meets across the country including San Diego, St. Louis, Hoover, Nashville and Augusta. She won first, second and third place in the four events – vault, bars, beam and floor – at the various competitions.
