Shining Star Senior Night: Mt. Spokane’s Johnston, LC’s Dibble

SPOKANE, Wash. – There are only a few weeks left of what would have been a great high school spring sports season, and seniors in our area will have to graduate without completing their careers. That’s why we’ve honored hundreds already, and will continue to do so. We have two more great athletes to talk about tonight.

April Johnston (Mt. Spokane) Dynamics gymnastics club: Johnston puts in an average of 20 hours a week into gymnastics. She was a junior Olympic level 10 athlete this year, and first it’s this year, and was stopped short of finishing that level 10 season because of the coronavirus. last year, she won the Western National title last year on the vault, and is extremely talented on floor. She will continue her career on the Acrobatics and Tumbling team at Concordia University in Wisconsin next year, where she also has academic scholarship.

¬†Madelyn Dibble (Lewis and Clark): This tennis player came to Lewis and Clark high school all the way from fairfax county, Virginia where she made district playoffs as a freshman. For the Tigers, she became the number one singles player as a sophomore and was part of L-C’s number one doubles team that places 2nd at state. Madelyn is a two time-first teamer in the GSL for tennis, a GSL MVP for slow pitch softball…but won’t get to find out how her senior year might have finished. She currently has a 3.66 GPA.
