Decorah's McKenna Bluhm has qualified to compete at the Iowa Gymnastics Optional State Meet Friday, March 15, in Waukee.
Currently a Level 7 gymnast, Bluhm is the first to qualify and compete at the state optional meet from Decorah's Flipz Gymnastics Center. Savanna Hunter and Marea Holkesvik both qualified several years ago but didn't compete.
Bluhm qualified at the Hal's Harley Invitational in Milwaukee with a more than needed all around score of 32.85.
Bluhm, 12, is coached by Jim and Vicki Bluhm and is a sixth grader at Decorah Middle School.
