Montverde Academy sophomore Sydney Johnson-Scharpf had a very successful summer.  She recently competed in her age-division at the USA Gymnastics Championships  and successfully qualified to join the Jr. National Team!  What makes this accomplishment even more extraordinary, is that Sydney was only 1 of 6 girls named to the team.  She will now represent the USA in international competitions.  This year is an Olympic year too, and Sydney will be vying for a spot on the Olympic team. If Sydney’s name sounds familiar, her mother, Mrs. Brandy Johnson-Scharpf, represented the USA Gymnastics’ team at the 1988 Olympics – held in Seoul, South Korea, and she competed at the 1989 World Championships before retiring from gymnastics.  She now operates the Brandy Johnson’s Global Gymnastics, located in Clermont, Florida.
