The district’s gymnastics team is proud to announce that South High School senior Kaylei McDonald earned All-State honors for her fifth consecutive season adding to her distinguished high school career.
In addition to this season, she received the Love of the Sport Award from New York State Public High School Athletic Association’s Section 8 gymnastics. This honor was in recognition of her overcoming a torn Achilles she suffered in June 2020. After suffering such a serious injury, she never gave up, continued to rehab and train, and ultimately came back stronger than ever.
Kaylei has been a member of the district’s gymnastics team since seventh grade and in 2019 she qualified for All-American status based on her scores on vault, bars, beam, floor and all around.
She will be representing Nassau County at the Long Island Championship on April 21 on beam and bars. The district wishes her the best of luck.
