20 Questions with Future Bronco Dominique Militello (Bay Valley)

Bay Valley Academy’s Dominique Militello has completed her last year of JO Gymnastics, graduated High School and finished her last season of competitive dance. Dom, who has one of the most entertaining floor routines on the gymnastics floor, will be heading to Western Michigan University come August to compete as a member of the Broncos Gymnastics Team. Dominique, who was a first year Level 10 has spent her entire life doing gymnastics in her home-town of Bay City, Michigan with long time coach Nanci Moore. Not only can Dom rock the gymnastics floor, she is also a competitive dance title winner. This future Bronc has accomplished many great things in the sport of gymnastics such as being a Level 9 National All Around & Event Champion, a Michigan State Champion and has earned a spot on the WMU Gymnastics Team. Dominique will certainly be missed on the competition floor, but I am excited to see what the future holds for her in the world of college gymnastics and what amazing floor routines she will have in the years to come. Let’s get to know Dom a little better as she wraps up her summer with BVA and heads to the next chapter with WMU in the Fall.
