DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Young gymnasts from Dothan will be going for gold this weekend at the state meet.

Seventeen gymnasts from United Gymstars and Cheer of Dothan are prepping to compete in this weekend’s meet at the University of Montevallo.

The only senior on the team has been competing for more than a decade.

Her goal is to savor every moment of her last state meet.

She believes their teams have what it takes to succeed.

“Really having a positive mindset,” level nine gymnast Alexandra Swanson said. “Believing that we can do this stuff. We’ve done it before. We can do it again it’s just on a bigger stage, but we shouldn’t let that scare us because we do this every day for multiple hours.”

Swanson hopes to advance to regionals so that she can keep doing the sport she loves.
