High school senior gymnasts recognized at 2017 YMCA National Gymnastics reception

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The 2017 YMCA National Gymnastics Senior Reception was held Wednesday night at Savannah Station.

High school seniors participating in YMCA Gymnastics are recognized for all of their accomplishments. The event also included the announcement of three seniors chosen to receive a college scholarship from YMCA of the USA.

"Gymnastics is unlike any other sport. It's one that you do year-round and as a lot of what we discussed tonight, it's hard and it's difficult. And you learn how to push and accomplish goals and face difficulties but succeed from those difficulties," said Carol Tanrath, a meet director for the National Gymnastics Championships.

This weekend is the National Gymnastics Championship. Making a special appearance is four-time USA Gymnastics Champion, Brandon Wynn.
