Kathryn Kluz, L10 from Oakland Gymnastics in Michigan, has committed to Auburn. Kluz started this season with a win at Gymnastics on the Grand (1st AA; 1st V/UB). She had a very strong 2010 season, winning the Michigan Academy Christmas Classic (1st V/FX); the CGA Coaches Spectacular (1st V); the San Diego Classic (1st V); and her state meet (1st V). She placed 6th AA at regionals and 7th AA at JO Nationals.
USA Gymnastics has issued a letter urging members and fans of the sport to make pledges to Cal Gymnastics Forever. In September, Cal announced the elimination of the Men's and Women's Gymnastics Program. In order to save the programs, a long term financial plan must be put in place to support gymnastics, rugby, women's lacrosse and baseball. A coordinated plan to raise $12.5M has been put in place, with over $10M already raised by the other sports. The Cal gymnastics program is targeting $1M towards that total, an amount they will have until January 31st to raise. Make your pledge or help spread the word today.
