Former IGI gymnast Hayley Sanzotti was just featured in an article about her experiences as a gymnast at Utah State University. Head Coach Nadalie Walsh had this to say about Hayley: “Three words sum up Hayley,” Walsh said. “She’s reliable, dependable and mature. Those are three words that just really encompass her. Her gymnastics has always been outstanding, but as far as consistency, you can put money on her that she’s going to do what needs to be done, and if she needs to, she’ll even step up and shift the atmosphere. When I say that, she’ll get the rest of the team to watch her do her beam routine and then everybody is re-engaged if we had any sort of downfall.” Congratulations Hayley!!!
Former IGI Gymnast Lexi Funk was honored as the Big Ten Freshman of the Week. Lexi, now at the University of Michigan, was named Freshman of the Week for the first time in her career. Last week she scored a 9.825 or better on all three of her events. She tied for second on floor with a season-high 9.875. Her 9.825 on bars matched a career high and her 9.825 on beam was her second-best score of the season. Lexi also scored a career high 9.925 on beam versus Maryland on February 5th. Congratulations Lexi!!!
