Bartlesville grad, gymnast Kylee Greene appointed to Air Force Academy

Kylee Greene has done performed feats on gymnastics equipment that only a minuscule percentage of a minuscule percentage of people on this planet can do.

It’s small wonder that Greene also would beat the odds when it came to landing a spot in one of the nation’s toughest institutions to infiltrate.

It became official when the Bartlesville High School graduate received her official appointment, on a gymnastics scholarship, to the Air Force Academy.

More than 8,000 hopeful high school seniors from throughout the world applied for a spot at the Air Force Academy (AFA), which is located in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Greene is one of only 1,220 to succeed.

“It was great,” Greene said about receiving the formal certificate of appointment during the recent Bartlesville Gymnastics Club end-of-the-season banquet.

“I was so happy that I knew I was really in, to know that I got accepted,” she added.

Green’s qualifications to compete on the college level are impeccable.

This past spring, she qualified for the 2022 Women’s Development Program National Championships in Level 10 — the highest level to which an athlete can aspire.

Even more amazing — this was third Level 10 national competition Greene participated in, starting when she was a Bartlesville freshman.

She would have competed in four Level 10 nationals had it not been for the cancellation in 2020 due to the virus-related national sports shutdown, BGC Executive Director Lorrie Bertolet said.
