Wow!!! Being a freshman is an amazing and unforgettable experience. I can’t believe we are alredy this far into the season! It seems as if the last few months have just flown. So far my first year as a GymBack has been remarkable. Not only do I train in the best facilities in the nation, but I am fortunate enough to be surrounded with some incredible people. I have never had so much fun doing gymnastics in my life!

Although the adjustments into college life were somewhat difficult, the changes were well worth it. Competing for the university and representing Arkansas is an awesome feeling. I look forward each week to the nerves, the adrenaline, and the excitement that come with each competition. I absolutely love the team chemistry that we have and the support that radiates from each and every team memeber. It is so much fun to come together as a team and fight through each meet.

I can’t wait to continue through the season and see how high our dreams can take us With this team, anything is possible and I am so proud to be a part of it.
