Piper Ed began gymnastics at the age of three in a pre-school class. Just a year later, Piper was invited to join the pre-team and began competing with Olympia Gymnastics as an Xcel Bronze Gymnast in January 2013. During her first season as a competitive gymnast, Piper won the beam title at the North Carolina State Championships. In 2014, Piper repeated Xcel Bronze and went on to win the vault, beam, and all around titles at State. Piper also qualified to the Region 8 Championships where she won the bars title.
During the 2015 season, Piper competed Xcel Silver. Piper had a phenomenal season, finishing first on beam and floor at state and first on floor and all around at regionals. During the fall 2015 season, Piper switched into the JO Program when she began training with Kozeev’s World of Gymnastics, and competed one meet of level 4 and one meet of level 5.
During the winter/spring 2016 season, Piper competed level 6. Piper had a great season, finishing in the top 10 on all four events and in the all around at the North Carolina State Championships. After her level 6 season, Piper began training at OSEGA. Piper competed level 7 in 2017, and at her first meet she placed third on bars and fourth all around. Piper continued to improve throughout the season and went on to win the bars title with a 9.750 at the Region 8 Championships.
Piper began her 2018 level 8 season at the Ozone Invitational where she placed third on bars and seventh all around. Unfortunately, Piper's season came to a close after a foot injury endured at a competition.
Piper kicked off her 2018-2019 level 8 season at Crown of the Carolinas where she took second on vault.
Currently, Piper trains 25+ hours per week under coaches Monica and Miles Avery at OSEGA. In the future, Piper’s goal is to qualify for Hopes and earn a full athletic scholarship for gymnastics to a division 1 school.
