Mallory showed a natural interest and inclination toward gymnastics from a very young age. She would do gymnastics all over the house, using furniture, countertops, swing-sets and stairs as apparatus! Before speaking in full sentences, she would watch YouTube videos of gymnastics routines and work hard to teach herself tricks, like straddle stands, bridge kick-overs and back handsprings, using a yoga ball for support. While still in pre-school, she had saved enough birthday and Christmas money to buy herself a 12-foot balance beam, on which she taught herself cartwheels and roundoff dismounts. Mallory’s parents agreed that signing her up for gymnastics classes was a safer outlet for this developing interest. She took classes at the local recreational gym and it became quickly apparent that she would enjoy more serious training.

Mallory competed through level 6 at Airborne Gymnastics in Longmont, CO. Her family moved to Bartlesville, OK in 2017 where she began training at Phillips 66 Gymnastics Club. As a level 7 gymnast in 2018, Mallory placed third in the all-around with a 38.100, second on uneven bars and third on floor exercise. She qualified to the Region 3 Championships, finishing third in the all-around with a 37.925 and second on uneven bars. Mallory moved up to level 8 for the 2019 season where she placed fifth in the all-around with a 37.275 and third on vault at the State Championships. At the Region 3 Championships, she finished fourth in the all-around and third on balance beam.

When Mallory is not training 28 hours each week, she enjoys doing art & math, swimming and reading. She is an honor student at her school where she currently maintains a 4.0 GPA. Mallory is also a member of Oklahoma Middle School Honor Society.
