Miranda has been a key leader on the varsity gymnastics team this season. She placed 1st on the beam and floor @ Shaker, and 1st on the beam and floor @ Saratoga. At the Think Pink Invitational at Guilderland over the holiday break with 4 teams competing, Miranda was equally as impressive. She placed 2nd on the bars, 3rd on the beam, 2nd on the floor and 2nd in the all around. Great job, Miranda!
