Keeping up with the recruits: Feb 2, 2010

Written by

It seems like it's harder to find meet results posted this year than in the past, but we’re see enough results to get a feel for how some of the L10s are doing as they work though their last season before heading to college.  Here are just a few of the noteworthy results from the past two weeks:

Marie Case’s name continues to pop up at the top of the results sheets.  The Kent State signee won her session of the CGA Coaches Spectacular while picking up a 1st on vault and 2nd on bars and fx.  Acacia Cosentino (UNC) finished 2nd behind Case, but picked up 1st place finishes on bars and floor.

Case moved on to her next meet, the Cereal City Classic, where she placed 2nd (1st on fx) behind Diandra Milliner (rumored to be a Bama commit).  Milliner placed 1st on vault, bars, and beam.  Milliner and Case both qualified from this meet to compete in the Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup next March.

Kytra Hunter (UF) won the 18+ division in Session 3 of the Parkette Invitational and put up strong scores to win vault, bars and beam.  Katy Dodds (Maryland) won floor in that division.  Alexis Carroll (PSU commit) and Lia del Priore (Utah) finished 1st and 2nd respectively in the 16-17 age division of the PKI.  Carroll’s first place finish qualified her to the Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup.  A few other early commits competing in 16-17 session of the PKI won individual events:  Stephanie Giameo (Maryland) took 1st on beam;  Annette Miele (Michigan) placed 1st on vault;  Becky Tutka (Utah) scored a meet high 9.9 on floor to win that event.

The 2010 Sand Dollar was a big meet with lots of great performances.  Kaylan Earls (UGA) swept all events to place first in her session.  Especially strong vault and floor scores propelled her to a 37.825 AA score and a decided victory over the second place showing of Michelle Shealy (ISU). Kimberly Jacob (Alabama) placed first in her Sr. B session, but Brittney Noble (UF) won vault and floor, Catherine Hires (UGA) won bars, and Katherine Grable (Arkansas) won beam. Alex Deluca (Ohio St) swept her session in this meet.  Samantha Kolbas (Arkansas) won her session and picked up first place finishes on bars, beam and floor.

Some of the late January results haven’t been posted yet, but a quick look around some of the published meet results indicates:

.    Hope Sloanhoffer (WVU) won the Gymnastics Revolution meet with a score of 38. 375.

.    Minnesota’s Dusti Russell won the Winter Luau meet (1st AA; 1st BB).  Kathrine Grable (Arkansas) won vault and floor and placed 2nd all around in that meet.

.    At the Crystal Cup, Racquel Willman (BYU) won the meet and placed 1st on bars.  Mary Beth Lofgren (Utah) won beam and Doniele Volopich (SUU) won vault.

.    W&M's Katie Durst recently won her session and picked up a 1st on beam at the Beach Invite.  Earlier this season she won the Winter Getaway and placed 3rd AA at the COTC.

.    Kiersten Wang (UF commit) finished 1st in the all around and three events (V, UB, FX) in Session 5 of the Colorado Winterfest.

.    Jordan Naleway (Illinois commit) placed 1st in the all around and on floor in the Sr. A session of the Bravo Classic.

So far, the following commits and signees have qualified to the Liukin Cup:

Marie Case (Kent State signee)
Diandra Milliner (unconfirmed Bama commit)
Stephani Canizaro (Arkansas commit)
Alexis Carroll (PSU commit)
Alexa Davis (Towson signee)

As more scores are reported, we'll cover them in the next article.  Club results are available under the Results tab on the front page.
