Eleanor’s optional career began in January 2015 as a level 7. At her first meet of the season, the Golden State Classic, Eleanor placed sixth on floor. Eleanor continued to improve throughout the season and finished in the top 10 on floor at state.

Following her level 7 season, Eleanor participated in TOPs Testing and went on to make the TOPs National B Team. In 2016, Eleanor competed level 8.
