We have had a few competitions since the last blog. We are in the midst of the busy championship season and are gearing up for the NCAA Regional Championships! Here is whatís been happening with MSU Gymnastics! We hosted our last home meet on Friday March 23rd against North Carolina State. We had a successful meet coming away with a win but there were a few emotions flying around the arena as it was Senior Night! Chayla Hill, Kristen Coleman, and Victoria Iakounina have been great assets to our program and will surely be missed!
We then went on a week-long intense training period for the Big Ten Championships. We did not fair so well at the competition as a team but there were a few highlights! Kristen Coleman, Rochelle Robinson and Nicole Curler were named to the All Big Ten First Team. This is the first time in school history that we have placed three gymnasts on the first team. Also, Rochelle Robinson tied for second on vault while Kristen tied for fourth on vault at the competition!
Kristen Coleman was named Big Ten Gymnast of the Year! This is something that has not occurred in MSU History since 1989. What an honor for Kristen Coleman and the MSU Gymnastics Program!
The NCAA Regional Championships are right around the corner and we are working hard to prepare! We will be leaving for the Regional Championships hosted by the University of Alabama on Thursday April 12th. We are excited to show what the MSU Spartans can bring to the table! Good Luck in your Regionalís and keep in touch~
