WAYNE, N.J. — A teen gymnast from Wayne took home a gold medal in a New Jersey competition.
George Washington Middle School's Jennifer Kruszewski's combined scores on the beam, vault, floor and bars put her in first place at the Xcel State Championship hosted by Rettig's Gymnastics. She qualified for the Regional Xcel meet next month.
The 13-year-old competes with North Stars Gymnastics Academy in Boonton at the Xcel-Platinum level, and has been doing gymnastics since she was 5.
She is looking forwarded to entering Wayne Valley High School in the fall and joining its gymnastics team.
