GRANITE FALLS — Kelsey Bassett spent an entire decade training and competing in gymnastics, often devoting four or five hours per day to the sport.
So when injuries ultimately ripped away her lifelong passion more than two years ago, the then-Granite Falls High School sophomore struggled with the harsh reality that her career was over.
“I was constantly upset and sad and crying,” Bassett said. “And then I went through a phase where I was just angry. It was a lot of emotions at once.”
