Babylon Memorial Grade School students were treated to an energetic, high-flying performance - complete with floor exercise routines, cartwheels and jaw-dropping trampoline stunts - on Feb. 3 by the Lady Panthers high school varsity gymnastics team.
The event, which was a collaboration between Babylon High School varsity gymnastics coach Nancy O'Donnell and grade school physical education teacher Craig Washington, left a lasting impression on the third, fourth and fifth-graders. "It's an opportunity to promote sports, sportsmanship and physical activity in the community," said Babylon Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics Michael DeJoseph. "It shows the younger students that there are opportunities at the junior high and high school levels to participate in athletics and be physically active.”
