Millie Klefsaas is surrounded by the Staples Motley boys basketball team and other students who cheered her on to the state gymnastics meet. This is Klefsaas’ fourth year competing with the Brainerd Warriors. She is a team captain and was conference champion on beam and floor. She was all conference four events.

Going to sate in four events

Klefsaas flips for first

Millie Klefsaas is upside-down above the balance beam, but landed safely and went on to win the Section 8AA beam event with a score of 9.425. Klefsaas was fourth on floor exercise with a 9.2 and fourth on vault with a 9.175, both qualifying for the state meet. Her ninth place finish on uneven bars was enough to get a second place in the all-around (all four events combined), so she will compete in state for all-around, as well. The state gymnastics meet will be Feb. 20 at the University of Minnesota.
