Totally floored: Carmel’s Sammi Lococo executes for girls gymnastics state title

Carmel senior Sammi Lococo has dreamed of winning a state championship. She just didn’t believe it could really happen.

She’s a believer now.

Lococo won the floor exercise during Saturday’s girls gymnastics individual state meet at Palatine.

“It hasn’t sunk in yet,” she said. “I’m just happy that I could do it for myself, my team and my coaches.”
