Rising gymnastics star Kate McCarthy (pictured), a fourth grader at Horn Elementary School, recently competed at the South State Texas Gymnastics Competition. She competed with her team from Discover Gymnastics, and it was an exhilarating day for all of the gymnasts who participated. Kate was awarded state all around, beam, bars, and floor champ for her age group. She appears a total of five times in America’s top 100 in her age group for bars, floors, and all around. With her all-around ranking, she is 66th in the country.
