Family Weekend and Fundraising

Another busy week has begun for Tribe Gymnastics-lots of midterms for everyone and four mornings in a row of morning cardio! Gotta love it! We all had a fun-filled weekend this past Friday through Sunday as our families were in town for Family Weekend! Our parents came to the gym Friday afternoon to watch us practice and we all enjoyed spending time and catching up. Saturday, our parents put together an amazing tailgate in the Yates parking lot for the football game. Molly’s parents roasted a pig and all of the food was amazing! We had everything from burgers and dogs to pasta salad and pumpkin bars! Thank you to everyone who contributed to the tailgate and came to share an awesome meal with us! Despite the Tribe’s loss to JMU and the persistent rain, we all had a terrific family weekend and were sad to see all of our parents leave Williamsburg.

In other news, we are currently raising money for the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) Walk to Cure Diabetes. The walk will be Saturday, October 15th and we are excited to raise some money and get out there and walk for a cure. If you are interested in donating, please visit and chose to donate to any one of us by simply typing in a first and last name of any team member or enter in the team name, which is William & Mary Women’s Gymnastics under “donate to a walker”. Our team goal is to raise $1,500! In addition, this weekend we will be doing the ropes course here on campus, as it was rained out a few weekends ago. Let’s hope for some nice weather-pictures will follow!

Although it is only the first week of October, our Green and Gold Intrasquad is in sight and our team has been looking great in the gym! Caitlyn has been catching her jaegers and I must say that our bar group is looking pretty impressive! Katie has been becoming very consistent with her triple series on beam and Allie has been working a very cool new combination on beam as well – a wolf jump to an immediate punch front. As for myself, I have been getting back in to doing double layout full outs off bars and a new triple series on beam! Lots of exciting stuff for the Tribe!

We wish junior co-captain Molly good luck and a speedy recover as she undergoes surgery this week. Our thoughts and prayers are with you!

One Tribe, One Family.
