Training Updates

  • Gustavus sophomore Annie Corbett is training a full-in dismount off the uneven bars. Corbett was a strong all-arounder for the Gusties during her freshman season, but has room for growth on bars. This dismount could be a difference maker in her routine.
  • La Crosse senior Faith Sersland is training a fun combo pass on floor of round-off + back one and a half + front layout half + punch front. Sersland was a staple in the Eagle’s floor lineup during the 2020 season. 
  • Oshkosh junior Rahdea Jarvis is training a Yurchenko one and a half to competition height. Her teammate Paige Mayhew is training a Yurchenko full, also to competition height. 
  • UCLA senior Pauline Tratz was in an Instagram Story doing a double tuck dismount off of uneven bars. Tratz has never competed on the event for the Bruins.
  • Eastern Michigan sophomore Molly Parris, who missed part of last season due to injury, was training an upgraded full twisting double layout on bars on the team Instagram Story.
