Danielle Wall, 14, also a BHS student, won the balance beam title and was third in the floor Exercise.

Coach Nelligan said in a press release: “The girls had errors here and there, but were attempting new skills that they are looking to master by upcoming meets.

"The entire senior team travels on February 7 for the Chicago Style Invitational, one of the largest and most prestigious meets in the U.S, while Clara

James and Danielle Wall are also preparing to travel to the first major international event of their careers, the Junior Pan American Championship, held in Brazil, from March 26-30.”
