My sister Sheril and her husband Ed have been blessed with three beautiful daughters who were raised in Cayucos where Rachel became interested in gymnastics. They now reside in Nipomo. Rachel left gymnastics to participate in High School track events  at Arroyo Grande High School. She is currently a Junior. 

She is excelling in the pole vault, and just won the CIF championship for her division. She is ranked in the top ten prep pole vaulters nationally, having jumped 12'6". Colleges across the nation are clamoring for her. Here are some news articles, scholarship letters, and photos for you to enjoy.
