In her previous three seasons of competition at the state level, Pohleven finished first in three out of eight meets and first overall as a Level 4 gymnast; first overall in five out of nine meets and second overall as a Level 5 gymnast, including first on beam and floor; and first in five out of seven meets and eighth overall as a Level 6 gymnast by taking second place on beam following rehabilitation of a broken ankle.
