Junior Olympic Nationals, then to Arizona for Nevada gymnast Malia Hargrove

Malia Hargrove had to miss the biggest event in her sport last year, the Junior Olympic National Gymnastics Championships, due to a knee injury.
The McQueen (Reno, Nev.) senior gets one more chance at it, though, next weekend in Indianapolis, before she embarks on her college gymnastics career at Arizona.
Hargrove has her college spot locked up, and has since she gave a verbal commitment after the eighth grade. But for many gymnasts, the regional and national championships are the only way to be seen by college coaches, since gymnastics is not a high school sport
