GYMNASTS TO KNOW
Lindsay Chohon, Jr., Niwot: Will be a pivotal part of a Niwot squad that has placed itself among the state elite in the last few seasons. A state placer on the bars and vault last season.
Abbi Edgerly, Sr., Broomfield: The Eagles senior has been a star on the floor, placing last season. She will hope to better her all-around performance in her final prep season.
Taylor Green, So., Niwot: Expectations were high for Green as a freshman and after a year under her belt and experience at state, she is primed for a significant jump.
Abby Holbrook, Sr., Broomfield: It will be the final season for a Holbrook at Broomfield and after placing on the beam and bars last year, she has her sights set on a big finish.
Lilliana Martin, Sr., Niwot: In her final season competing with her mom/coach, Martin will look to move up after place seventh on the floor last season.
Regional meets to be held on Oct. 28.

Last year: Third at Class 5A state meet.
Returning state qualifiers: Abbi Edgerly (Sr., floor); Abby Holbrook (Sr., beam and bars).
