Who's Got Next Greater Boston

Who's got next? Each month, ESPN RISE finds out. Here is an athlete we recognized in October:

Janis Konkle

Acton-Boxboro – Girls's Gymnastics

Talk about making a grand
entrance… Konkle arrived on the
scene last year and proceeded to
blow the doors off the competition.
By the time she was done, Konkle
had been named Freshman of the
Year and Dual County League
Gymnast of the Year, and she wasn't
intimidated by the bright lights,
either. Konkle finished third overall
at the Coaches' Invitational and
third at the state meet, helping
Acton-Boxboro to a fifth-place finish.
In the process, Konkle set school
records in the vault, bars, beam and
all-around.
