As fall sports come to a close for the season, the introduction of winter sports begin. When thinking of winter sports, the first that come to mind are usually basketball and hockey. One sport that people often don’t even know that Lumen has is gymnastics. The Lumen Christi gymnastics team is a co-op program with Jackson High and Northwest high schools. The team goes by the name “JLC.” Gymnastics practices and meets are not held at in the gym at Lumen because of the constant set-up and tear-down of the equipment that would be required. Lumen, Jackson High, and Northwest gymnasts all meet after school at Hunt Elementary school in a building which used to be their pool, but is now our gym.

The team has 15 meets a year, 6 of which are being held in our home gym, so come support! Two weekends ago, the team had a practice meet at Lakeland High School. This upcoming weekend, JLC has their first real meet. It is an invitational, which can be equivalent to another sport’s “tournaments.” At 6:00 AM this Saturday, the team will be heading to Holt High School to compete against 15 other teams. The meet begins at 8:00, and will most likely continue throughout most of the day.

Like any high school sport, gymnastics has a JV and a Varsity team. This year, we have had several new additions to the team, who are working so hard to earn their spot. Our goal this year is to make it to states as a team. Gymnastics is an extremely competitive sport, so it will be difficult to do that, but each gymnast is making every single day count, and working hard to be the best they can be. Be on the lookout for JLC gymnastics this year, because they are hungry for some hardware.
