This collection is dedicated to Mary Jones Sarver and Lee Renier Bjella
Mary started this history years ago, passing it to Lee in 2001. It was then passed to me (Chrystal) in 2018, and it continues to be a work in progress. (Please send any information you have to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Many many thanks to Jerry Penney for prodding Mary to delve into the history of Washington girls high school gymnastics history.
Mary put together a booklet which she gave to Karen Wisen, who passed it on to Lee when learning of her love of history.
After Lee’s death, it was passed on to me. I hope I can do it the justice it deserves.
