* Freshman Brittney Morgan won a share of her second career vault title last week at Washington.
Hello again GymCat Fans!
After a stellar home opener, our “Flipping for the Fight” meet two weeks ago won us another home meet for the second week in a row. Not only was it a good meet, it was for a great cause. The excitement for the meet started the day before when we received beautiful blue and pink leotards in honor of our Breast Cancer Awareness Meet. We started the meet on vault and once again were extremely consistent on this event. Bree Workman’s sky-high vault ended up with a 9.85 to win this event. Next we went from bars to beam where we had small errors, but nothing we can’t easily fix as we continue the eyar. Some highlights of bars included Karin Wurm’s beautiful routine which earned a well deserved 9.9. After a few mistakes on beam, once again junior Danielle Hicks stepped up and showed why she is No. 8 in the country on this event, posting a 9.85. After minor mistakes on beam and bars, we were ready to show our fans just what an amazing floor team we have. That is just what we did. We had so much enthusiasm and excitement and this really showed in everyone’s routines. Aubrey Kelly and Karin Wurm shared the floor title with matching scores of 9.875’s. Karin Wurm also ended up winning the meet for the second weekend in a row. The great floor rotation helped us conclude the meet and have another successful win!
Now with two great home meets under our belt, we traveled to
On a different note, so far the GymCats have done more community service hours than any other U of A athletic team! Go Cats!
Don’t forget to come to our next home meet on February the 16th as we take on Stanford! This season looks to continue to be a great one for the Wildcats! Hopefully see you all this weekend!
