Ten year old Janelle King is a member of the Warriors of the Woodlands delegation. She's only been a SOTX competitor for about a year, but King has already earned several gold medals in bocce and the 25M event in aquatics. The Bush Elementary School fourth-grader also participates in bowling and is known for the "happy dance" that she does while her bowling ball rolls down the lane.  Family and friends say King's excitement is contagious and describe her as a blessing to be around.  Her hobbies include listening to music and horseback riding.  She especially loves performing with an adaptive cheer team that she recently  joined.
