Coach’s Note:  Mia is a beautiful athlete.  Bars and Beam are incredible.  She is fun, happy, healthy, and hard working.  She is the type of athlete that communicates well and wants to make corrections on every turn.  Mia attends one of the most difficult High Schools in our area and still maintains a GPA over 4.0 while working out 22.5 hours per week. In July 2017 Mia had shoulder surgery to repair the labrum in her left shoulder.  She is on the road to recovery and came in every day while rehabbing to gain strength in her legs for floor and vault. Very self motivated
