Illustrated headshot of Peri GoodmanPeri: Alexis Richardson, hands down. She’s one of five sixth year gymnasts this season, and re-introduced all around during last year’s infamous Bridgeport lineup puzzle. 


Illustrated headshot of Alyssa Van AukerAlyssa: After helping her team break numerous records in 2022, I hope Derrian Gobourne can help Auburn continue that momentum in her fifth year.


Illustrated headshot of Emily MinehartEmily M: It has to be Lynnzee Brown. Her exit last year was so heartbreaking, and it’s time for redemption.


Rebecca Scally Illustrated HeadshotRebecca: Last year was a huge improvement for Washington, but with a small roster and an increasing injury load, the Huskies had to fight for every inch. This year, Amara Cunningham gets to take her victory lap with less pressure and more hype. With two 9.950s on her resume, it’s not inconceivable that she could get a 10.0 on floor before her career ends.

Savanna Whitten illustrated headshotSavanna: I need Lynnzee Brown to have the farewell tour she so rightly deserves. I want nothing but good things for her this season.


Illustrated headshot of Allison FreemanAllison: I’m fully with Peri here. Alexis Richardson has the chance to close out her career with the Purple Knights and is ready to put Bridgeport back on track.
