Makenna King

South Central’s Makenna King earned medals in three events as well as placing second all-around in Saturday’s state finals at Ball State’s Worthen Arena.

MUNCIE – As Makenna King waited to climb on the balance beam, her final event in Saturday’s state gymnastics meet at Ball State’s fan-free Worthen Arena, the South Central sophomore and her coach, Christine Garcia, shared a pleasant exchange, smiled, fist bumped and hugged.

“I just told her, you did it, you made it here, go out with a bang, stay on the beam, show the judges what you can do,” Garcia said.
