Wesier Senior Night

I guess I finally have to accept the fact that I am a senior since my last home meet is this weekend! Itˇ?s crazy how time flies! I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to meet all? my best friends and be part of such an amazing program. I canˇ?t imagine having a better college experience, I will never forget any the memories I have made here! My friends and family deserve a lot of the credit. I have been through a lot of surgeries and injuries and without their support I would be no where! I canˇ?t imagine having better friends then I have met here! I am so excited for all the things life is going to bless us with in the future.? Even when Iˇ?m gone, Iˇ?ll be a GymCat at heart!! There are very few better things to be known as in love then a GymCat!!!! I will forever be grateful to everyone who has touched my life and my heart, and can only hope I will be able to find a way to repay them.

With GymCat love,

Well, itˇ?s finally hereˇ? senior meet, my last home meet in McKale! It seems just like yesterday I was a freshman competing in front of our home crowd for the first time. Four years has come and gone, in a blink of an eye. My favorite moment as a GymCat is definitely PAC 10ˇ?s my freshman year. Our final event was balance beam and I was up last, anchoring the beam team. Everyone had hit their routines, one after the other, and I was next. After my routine, the final beam score was 49.35!!! Thatˇ?s an average of 9.87 per athlete. The team was so excited and pumped up with adrenaline, we finished off the night with a final GymCat cheer. No one knew the results until awards were announcedˇ?. We came second to UCLA with a 195.925 beating Oregon State by 0.025!!! This was one of my most memorable experiences as a GymCat and I know we are going to finish off this season the same way, one hit routine after another.

Hi GymCat Fans!

The senior meet is upon quickly time has gone by. I still remember being a little freshman walking to McKale for my first practice! I can't thank everyone enough; my teammates, my coaches, the fans and everyone in the athletic family for making my experience here at Arizona some of the best years of my life.

I am so excited to have my family out here for our last meet in Tucson and to see the families of the other seniors as well. I've been blessed with not only having a great four years of gymnastics at U of A, but I've also had a team that I will be friends with for life. I wouldn't trade what I've had here for anything :o).

Hope to see you all at our senior meet on Friday, March 21 at the McKale Center. Thanks for all the support for the last four years!

Love always,
