2013 Year in Review: Area deals with death of Ally Trebesch

South Washington County mourned the loss of Ally Trebesch this past year.

A standout gymnast, Trebesch died on Sept. 17, at the age of 13. As a seventh grader, Trebesch reached her first state meet in the vault last season for Woodbury High School. She earned the trip to state with a personal-best 9.475 and a third-place finish in the vault at the Section 3AA Championships – the day after her 13th birthday.  She was the first gymnast to reach state in head coach Julie Dornseif’s three-year regime as head coach. Dornseif was also Trebesch’s mom. Trebesch planned on competing for East Ridge this season along with her younger sister Olivia Trebesch.
