Shabet caps gymnastics career at Troy with consecutive state titles
March 19, 2014
TROY — Her will to win is unquestionably strong.
In fact, the only thing that equals it is her distain for losing.
She can’t stand it.
“I’m very hard on myself,” Troy High senior Christina Shabet said earlier this week. “I get pretty upset if I’m not winning.”
It’s a strength of hers, she insists, and on March 8 in the Division 1 gymnastic state finals, it propelled her to a second consecutive title in the all-around event.
“I knew going there I had the target on my back,” she said. “There were some very high-end girls, some really talented gymnasts that knew I had won last year. I felt that pressure. I knew I had to go do it again.”
And she did, in grand style.
Her score of 38.675 was a career best.
As a junior, she won the all-around despite not winning a single event.
This time, she won the floor exercise and the uneven parallel bars, took second on balance beam and fourth in the vault.
“It was a wonderful way to end the season and her career,” coach Cynthia Tan said. “For her to do it two years in a row is an awesome accomplishment. I couldn’t be more proud of her.”
Tan said she’s seen Shabet’s determination for years.
“She wants to win,” Tan said. “Her drive to win everything again was what really pushed her. She hates to lose.”
Shabet has been accepted at the University of Michigan, but is still considering Yale University and the University of Pennsylvania.
She said she wouldn’t continue her career at Michigan, but would walk onto the gymnastic teams at Yale or Penn.
As for her career at Troy, it ended in about as perfect a fashion as she could have hoped.
“To go out on top, it’s tough to describe what that means,” she said. “It’s like all the work and effort I put in paid off.”
