Athlete of the Week: Marshfield’s Gracie Holland

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

This week's athlete of the week is Marshfield's senior gymnast Gracie Holland.

Gracie Holland has dominated for the Tigers this season. She's placed first in every event and the all-around competition four meets in a row.

"She's phenomenal," said Allie Dryer, Marshfield gymnastics head coach. "All of her skills are right where, all of her routines started with a 10, so they are the very best that they can be in high school gymnastics. So, obviously, that puts her a step ahead of the competition that she's starting at the very best that she can."

After winning two titles at state last year, Holland is hoping to do the same, if not more, this season.

"I've just been working on my skills, perfecting them," Holland said. "I'm doing the same routines I did last year, just cleaning them up and having fun with it this year."

"I want to place again," Holland said. "I want some of my teammates to come with me. I think some of them have a good shot at coming with me and it'd be fun to bring them with me, individually and as a team. I think we have a shot this year."

But despite Holland's ability as a gymnast, she'll be trading the uneven bars for the pole vault next year in college.

"I actually went to state last year for pole vault and I placed fifth," Holland said. "So, I really liked that and I went to visit there (UW-Whitewater) and I didn't really know about UW Whitewater, but I decided the coaches invited me out there and they were so nice and so friendly and it kinda of felt like home. I'm really excited to go there and use some of my gymnastics background too."
