TWU Gymnasts Honored By Legislature

5/9/03


AUSTIN — Texas legislators honored the Texas Woman’s University national championship gymnastic team this week in two separate resolutions.

Senate Resolution 751, introduced by Sen. Craig Estes (R-Wichita Falls), was approved by the Texas Senate on May 5. House Resolution 1010, introduced by District 64 Rep. Myra Crownover (R-Lake Dallas), was approved by the Texas House of Representatives on May 8.

The TWU gymnastics team defeated two-time defending national champion the United States Air Force Academy April 18 during the 2003 USA Gymnastics Collegiate National Championships, hosted by TWU. Nine TWU gymnasts were named All-Americans for their performances at national competition, and TWU’s Stephanie Loudat tied for an individual national title on the uneven bars.

The win was TWU’s seventh national championship since 1992.

“I applaud the TWU gymnastics team for their outstanding accomplishment,” said Rep. Crownover. “They have brought honor to their campus, to the city of Denton and to the state of Texas by defeating two-time, defending national champion the U.S. Air Force Academy. Let’s celebrate their wonderful tradition of excellence.”

“Texas Woman’s University’s gymnasts are first-class athletes and true champions. These exemplary young women are role models for all Texas students with their performance in competition and in the classroom,” said Sen. Estes.

The TWU gymnastics team consists of: Jennifer Bolli, Jessica Brozovich, Lindsey Clowers, Kristin Forgge, Dana Giametta, Rachel Goddard, Kim Holland, Lauren Kondikoff, Stephanie Loudat, Chelsie Leggett, Erin MacNabb, Amber McMeans, Aubree Murray, Bethany Rehm, Luci Romberg, Jonica Scott, Brandi Smith, Nakia Westbrook, coach Frank Kudlac, assistant coaches Kim Koenig and Jackie Fain, and volunteer assistant coaches Michelle Hepner and Nathen Risinger.

The TWU gymnastics team has an overall grade point average of 3.592, and two gymnasts have 4.0 GPAs.
