Analisa Lopez began gymnastics at the age of four and began competing at the age of six in 2012 as a level 4 with Powerhouse TNT Gymnastics. At her first state meet, the Texas South Level 4 State Championships, Analisa placed third on floor with a 9.450. Due to the level changes in 2013, Analisa competed level 4 again in 2013 and went on to place second on beam at the Level 4 South State Championships. In 2014, Analisa competed one meet as a level 5 where she won the bars, beam, and all around titles. Analisa also participated in TOPs Testing in 2014 where she went on to make the TOPs National A Team.
Analisa began her optional “career” during the Winter/Spring 2015 season. At her first meet of the season, Analisa placed third on bars and in the all around. While Analisa qualified to the Texas State Championships, she did not compete. During the Summer of 2015, Analisa participated in TOPs Testing, qualified to National Testing, and made the TOPs National B Team. As a level 8 in 2016, Analisa began training and competing with United Gymnastics Academy. At her first level 8 meet, Analisa won the all around and placed second on vault. At the 2016 Level 8 State Meet, Analisa placed sixth all around with a 37.700 and qualified to regionals. At the Region 3 Championships, Analisa won the vault title with a 9.450 and tied for sixth all around with a 37.750. Over the Summer of 2016, Analisa prepared for both level 9 and Hopes which she would aim to qualify for during the 2017 season.
Analisa started her 2017 level 9 season at the Texas Shootout meet where she won the vault, floor, and all around titles. Throughout the season, Analisa continued to improve and had her best showing at the Texas Level 9 State Meet where she placed fifth on vault and fifth on floor. At regionals, Analisa had an uncharacteristic bar routine which kept her from qualifying to Westerns. Fortunately, Analisa’s season wasn’t over. After her Region 3 Championships, Analisa began preparing for the Parkettes National Elite Qualifier where she would need a 32.00 compulsory score and a 45.00 optional score to qualify. Analisa’s first day of competition was the compulsory qualifier where she scored a 33.050 and achieved her Hopes 10-11 compulsory score. On the second day, Analisa achieved her Hopes 10-11 optional score with a 45.150 as well as a first place finish on vault. These two qualifying scores qualified Analisa to the Hopes Classic on July 7 at the National Team Training Center in Huntsville, TX. In order for Analisa to qualify to the Hopes Championships from the Hopes Classic, she would need to score a 45.00 in the all around and place in the top 18. Analisa did just that scoring a 45.500 and placing 14th. Analisa also took home the silver on vault. The Hopes Championships took place on July 28, 2017 in Hoffman Estates, Chicago. Analisa had the best Hopes meet of her season so far finishing fourth on vault, sixth on floor, and ninth all around with a 46.400.
Analisa began her 2018 season at the Chow's Challenge Elite Compulsory Qualifier where she earned her compulsory score for Hopes. That same weekend, Analisa competed in the Chow's Challenge as a level 10 and won the floor title as well as placing second all around. Analisa continued to have a great season and went on to qualify to the JO National Championships where she tied for fifth on floor.
As a second year level 10 in 2019, Analisa began her season at The Texas Shootout Invite where she finished in the top 15 on vault and floor. In February, Analisa competed at the Brestyan's Las Vegas Elite Compulsory Qualifier where she earned her Hopes 12-13 compulsory score. One month later at the Texas State Championships, Analisa placed sixth on floor and eighth all around, qualifying to the Region 3 Championships. Analisa closed her season at the Region 3 Championships with a solid competition.
