We've Got Spirit! -- Sept. 23, 2003
A Letter From The Coaches
Dear Future Lady Razorback Gymnast,
As you begin your search for your collegiate experience, we hope you will
seriously consider the University of Arkansas.
At the conclusion of our first season of competition we can say, it was
a great success. Our all freshmen team was magnificent! They competed
with consistency and enthusiasm, and even in a conference as tough as
the SEC, we were able to beat some teams and be competitive with all of
the teams. One of the biggest accomplishments was our attendance. We averaged
4800 for the season which ranks us fourth in the country behind Utah,
Georgia, and Alabama- pretty unbelievable for a community that never before
witnessed a collegiate gymnastics meet!
In the classroom the team also excelled. We had 8 Academic All-Americans.
With the team's accomplishments, we ended the year ranked first in the
SEC Academically and fourteenth nationwide. Our team is truly an amazing
group of young women.
Our future is extremely bright. With the successes of this first year,
we have not doubts we will be vying for an NCAA Super Six Berth within
your collegiate career- especially with you to contribute to an already
talented group of young women!
Please fill out the questionnaire attached to this website and send it
to us via the mail. We would also love a video tape of your current skills
and routines, as well as a high school transcript.
We'll look forward to getting to know you.
Mark Cook, Rene Cook, Todd Henry
