Congratulations to Head Coach Amanda Allen, Positive Athlete Girls Coach of the Year Regional Winner for 2019-2020!
Cyrena Whalen, daughter of Brian and Brenda Whalen, has been a gymnast since the age of four. Now, as a Senior, she brings beauty and poise to the sport of gymnastics and is simply inspiring to watch in the gym. Her smile keeps team spirits up and her dedication to her craft makes her one of the best gymnasts in the state of Georgia. Cyrena has been part of the BHS Varsity Gymnastics team for the past four years and has led our team to three top three State Championship finishes. She earned an individual State Bar title with a 9.9 and school record in 2017 and in 2019 she earned a third-place All- Around state finish and a school record with a score of 38.075.
Cyrena will be competing for the Owls of Temple University this coming fall. We are so proud of all that Cyrena has accomplished as a Buford Wolf and look forward to seeing her soar as an Owl!
