Coach’s Note:  Lena has been at Byers for over 14 years. During Lena’s gymnastics career she has an elbow issue that has affected her ability to train bars for long periods of time.  Over this last year, she was finally diagnosed with a nerve that runs the wrong way over the bone and would get irritated.  She started wearing an elbow brace and her bars are on fire.  She is one of the quickest, strongest, smartest, and most dedicated athletes on the team.  In the last year, she has struggled through a foot injury, but has recovered nicely.  We hope to have a successful all around year.
