Gymnast takes 2nd place overall in her first state competition

Saylor_02Eight-year-old Saylor Clough is tearing up the mat…and the horse…and the bars…and the beam. The Ortega Forest resident and student at St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School began gymnastics when she was six years old, progressing to competition after just one year of training.
Although “floor” is her favorite category, Saylor’s scores are highest in vault, making that her best event. “I really like floor, the bars and the beam,” she said. “I like doing gymnastics because it’s fun.”

Saylor’s mother Amy Clough said that her daughter trains nine hours each week and has taken home medals at each of her five competitions. “She took second overall in the state competition in April in Tampa,” said Clough. “She brought home five medals from that meet.”
Saylor is now a Level 5 out of 10 and has amassed 16 medals and six ribbons. She trains and competes with North Florida Gymnastics in Orange Park.
