    It was a February night and the stuffy Dracut High School gym smelled like sweat and chalk. The Methuen High Varsity gymnastics team had just begun our beam warm-ups and I felt oddly calm. Beam has always been my best event, so competing usually leaves me either very pleased or very disappointed.

In meets, it was
