Frazier is an American international elite who made her senior debut this November at the Friendship and Solidarity Meet in Japan. As a junior, she competed at the GK U.S. Classic and the U.S. championships both in 2018 and 2019. She finished sixth on beam at nationals in 2019. As a level 10, she is the 2018 Pennsylvania state all around champion and the co-bronze medalist on floor at nationals (junior C). Her older sister Margzetta is a gymnast at UCLA.
What She Brings to California
- Skill: Yurchenko double twist
- Results: 2018 Pennsylvania state champion
- Margin of Improvement: Frazier performs a very strong vault. If we were to be super picky, she could keep her legs a bit straighter in the air, but the criticism takes nothing away from her impressive execution.
- Impact on the Team: If Frazier were to bring her Yurchenko double to Cal, it would have a huge impact on the lineup. She could anchor it from day one.
- Skills: toe-on full pirouette to toe-on piked Tkatchev, Pak salto, Maloney to Tkatchev, double layout dismount
- Results: 2018 Pennsylvania state co-champion
- Margin of Improvement: Frazier’s bar work is a bit labored, but it is probably because her elite routine is very difficult. With a much easier collegiate routine, most of the execution deductions should disappear.
- Impact on the Team: Frazier has a lot of potential and will be expected to contribute to the lineup.
- Skills: full turn, front aerial to split jump to straddle jump, switch leap to Johnson, side aerial, BHS + LOSO series, switch ring, ring jump to back tuck, double pike dismount
- Results: second place at the 2018 Region 7 regionals
- Margin of Improvement: Frazier’s form is good on beam, and she is quite consistent, too. Although her elite scores are not very high, she has the potential to score extremely well in college.
- Impact on the Team: As with bars, Frazier has a lot of potential, and she will be expected to make the lineup.
- Skills: double layout, full-in, front tuck to double tuck, double pike
- Results: tied third place at the 2018 L10 nationals (junior C)
- Margin of Improvement: Frazier’s tumbling is impressive. Hopefully we will get to see her double layout in college.
- Impact on the Team: California has struggled on floor at times in the recent past, and in this respect, Frazier could be a game changer. Similarly to vault, she could anchor the lineup as a freshman if she brings one of her E passes to Berkeley.
