Remembering Mari-Rae Sopper: 9/11

It's been eleven years since the tragic events of September 11th, 2001.   Today we honor the heroes of September 11th, 2001, including those who lost their lives. One of those people, Mari-Rae Sopper, closely touched the collegiate gymnastics community. As you may know, Mari-Rae Sopper was Head Coach of the University of California, Santa Barbara's women's gymnastics team. She was also a former standout collegiate gymnast and team captain for Iowa State. Many of you knew her in the capacity of coach, teammate, competitor, colleague and friend.

The 2012 Women's Junior Olympic Nationals were held in May 2012 in Virginia, showcasing some of the nation's top future gymnasts.  The vast plurality of college gymnasts competed at the Level 10 ranks.  In our experience, a Top 5 finish at the JO National meet usually translates into a high level of success at the NCAA level, barring injury or other unforeseen issues.  However, a single fall can cause an athlete to fall well down the standings at the JO Nationals.     

Here's a summary of the results and links to th available online video of the meet.
