Girls Varsity Gymnastics · Grace Cochran Wins Sportsmanship Award

Sophomore gymnast, Grace Cochran, was named Most Positive Athlete in Gymnastics for the Northwest Atlanta region. Athletes are nominated by their coaches and then selected by the Positive Athlete Georgia organization. Positive Athletes “Work Hard and Play Positive.” These athletes are chosen because they are optimistic, encouraging, are leaders, have a heart for others, admit imperfections, give 100%, and put the team first.

Grace maintains a GPA of 3.8. She has competed on the uneven bars, vault, and floor exercise while a member of the Varsity Gymnastics team. She is also involved in Varsity Cheerleading, where she was a member of the 2014 State Championship team, and Varsity Track, where she runs the 4×100, 4×400, 400 and 300 hurdles. Grace’s future goals include attending the University of Georgia for veterinary school.

Grace is now eligible for a number of scholarships that will be announced at an awards banquet later this month.
