Jeff's Lezak planning to make most of lone gymnastics sectional appearance

March 11, 2013
Lafayette Jefferson High School



When Hannah Lezak sneezed at home this week, there was initial paranoia.

Who could blame her?

Injuries and illness have kept the Lafayette Jeff senior gymnast from competing in the sectional each of her first three years of high school. With one final chance, the worst has been feared entering Saturday’s sectional in Denny Blind Gymnasium.

“It is kind of like she’s a freshman, because it is her first time competing in sectionals,” junior Miranda Schroll said. “But she’s a senior, so it is her last time competing in sectionals.”

Lezak envisions three more meets in her high school career, beginning with her first postseason appearance Saturday.

In the season’s first home meet, she broke the Broncho record in the floor routine with a 9.625. She plans to make it to state in her favorite event. If she does, the feat would be a remarkable show of dedication.

Lezak broke her foot at a meet competing in the floor routine her freshman year. Prior to the sectional meet her sophomore year, she got mono and couldn’t compete. Then last year, she was performing a suke on the vault when she came down awkwardly on the edge of the mat and suffered a dislocated foot, having to have it put back into place.

“It takes a lot of dedication to stick through that,” Jeff coach Cindy Gregg said. “The easiest thing to do would be to quit.”

Not only has Lezak stuck through injuries in high school —including a stress fracture from running cross country — but she may continue to pursue a future in gymnastics if she chooses to attend Ball State next year.

Last season, Lezak watched in a boot as her teammates celebrated the program’s first sectional title since 1991. It was heartwarming and disheartening all at once.

Saturday is Lezak’s first chance, yet last chance at sectional glory.

“I have a lot of people coming to watch me at sectionals because this is the only year they get to,” Lezak said. “I feel like I have a lot of pressure, especially since I broke the (floor) record. Everyone is expecting a lot, but I am really excited to show everyone what I can do.”
