Flyers' LeBlanc picking up where she left off


Rachelle LeBlanc had to relearn how to attack the vault runway without anything in her hands.

The Little Falls Flyers freshman gymnast was a state pole vaulter last season, an experience she called one of the best in her young athletic career. But before that, LeBlanc made a name for herself as a gymnast.

She added to that success during the Flyers' season-opening 126.34-120.03 Central Lakes Conference victory over the Fergus Falls Otters Dec. 3.
