Gymnast makes state team

Heather Hovander of Danville became one of only six competitors to make the NorCal State Gymnastics Level 6 Team. She won the honor at the 2007 NorCal State Championships held Nov. 10-11 in Concord, where 237 gymnasts competed.

Hovander finished the four gymnastics events (bars, beam, floor and vault) with a total score of 37.5, including a first place finish on bars. Her score was the second highest at the Championships.

Next stop is the National Judges Cup held in San Diego in January. Hovander trains at Diablo Gymnastics in San Ramon, where the head coach is Kristin Schrader-Shawler.
