He helped launch the sport at EHS during the winter of 2010, eventually leading a talented squad to a second-place finish at the state championships in February 2011. That was followed by state titles in 2012 and 2013 and second-place finishes the past two seasons.
Chynoweth’s introduction to gymnastics came through a recreational program in her youth and she competed for three years at the high school level. Locally, she has coached at the Enumclaw GymnasticsCenter and, for the past four years, at Peak Gymnastics.
