About Mya

Lauzon is a 2019 Nastia Liukin Cup competitor and a multiple J.O. nationals medalist. She was second in the all around in 2019, and she also tied for first place on vault and for third on beam (Junior F). In 2018, she was third in the all around and tied for third on beam (Junior D). She scored a 10.0 on vault at the 2020 Palm Springs Gymnastics Cup. She was previously committed to Minnesota.

What She Brings to California


  • Skill: Yurchenko 1.5
  • Results: tied first place at the 2019 J.O. nationals (Junior F)
  • Margin of Improvement: She separates her legs ever so slightly before she starts twisting, but it is a negligible deduction.
  • Impact on the Team: Lauzon will join an excellent lineup, which will include Milan Clausi and Nevaeh DeSouza. She will be expected to make a difference here and will challenge for the anchor spot from the start.

Uneven Bars

  • Skills: Maloney to Pak salto, full-in dismount
  • Results: second place at the 2019 Region 2 regionals
  • Margin of Improvement: She has small form issues throughout, including a small leg separation on her Maloney and flexed feet on her Pak. She could also work on her handstands a bit more. Nevertheless, she performs a strong set.
  • Impact on the Team: California is currently very strong on bars, but in 2021 it will graduate three of its best bar workers. Hence, Lauzon will be needed to fill the gap.

Balance Beam

  • Skills: wolf turn, front aerial, BHS + LOSO, switch leap + switch leap half, front toss, double twist dismount
  • Results: tied third place at the 2019 J.O. nationals (Junior F)
  • Margin of Improvement: Lauzon’s form on beam is excellent. She is ready for college.
  • Impact on the Team: California was at times a bit shaky on beam in 2020. Although in the fall it is welcoming two new excellent beam workers, Andrea Li and Gabby Perea, head coaches Justin Howell and Elisabeth Crandall-Howell will be delighted to add Lauzon to the lineup.

Floor Exercise

  • Skills: double pike, front double twist, double turn with the leg held horizontal, 1.5 twist to back double twist
  • Results: first place at the 2019 Washington state meet
  • Margin of Improvement: Her execution is good, but her twisting form could be a bit tighter.
  • Impact on the Team: Lauzon’s routine is not the hardest, yet she will be expected to contribute here too.
