Family

  Ella Ann Hodges was born April 5, 2001 in Winchester, Massachusetts to Rhonda and Jerry Hodges.  She has two older brothers, Henry and Benjamin who are both successful athletes themselves.  
  Henry graduated from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst 2016 with a Civil / Environmental Engineering degree and was on the Mens Varsity Crew team all four years.      Ben, is completing his Senior year studying Business at the Isenberg School of Management in the same University.  Ben has played soccer and competed multiple events on track.


   The family is very close and has always supported one another in their endeavors.  Ella's brothers have attended her gymnastics meets as often as possible and love to cheer her on.

 One thing that has always been special to the family has been spending summers on Cape Cod in Eastham on the National Seashore.  Ella has made several friends there and has always enjoyed keeping in touch with them throughout the year.  Spending time together in the surf, sand and sun has been a tremendous stress reliever and has always put her in a great frame of mind for the start of the new year.
