Anastasia Webb Signs with #1 Oklahoma

IGI Senior gymnast, Anastasia Webb, signed a National Letter of Intent for a gymnastics scholarship to the University of Oklahoma. Oklahoma is currently the #1 NCAA program in the country and is the reigning National Champion.

OU Head Coach KJ Kindler had this to say about Anastasia:
“When you speak with Anastasia, it is impossible not to hear the joy in her voice when she discusses family, gymnastics and becoming a Sooner. Her vitality and happiness are completely contagious, but inside lurks a fierce competitor. We are captivated by her demeanor when she takes to the competition floor. There is great confidence there and I believe it was cultivated through her family and her training. We are certain Anastasia will be an all-arounder for OU right out of the gate. She had a breakout season last year making the JO National Team after several years as an Elite. She is a very powerful and quick vaulter and tumbler, and yet an extremely graceful dancer. She has great confidence and there is no doubt she will be a team leader in competitions.”

Anastasia is from Morton Grove and is an academic honor roll member at Niles West High School, she plans to major in health and exercise science at OU and wants to become a physician assistant. She was recruited by numerous schools including: LSU, Alabama, Stanford, Utah, Denver and Michigan.

Other former IGI gymnasts to compete for Oklahoma are Haley Scaman (2012-2016) and Kayla Nowak (2010-2013).
