Keeping up with the recruits

Written by Reener

➽  The results speak for themselves.  Brianna GUY is one of the hottest college bound L10s out there so far this season.  She squeezes as many competitions as she reasonably can into her schedule and she wins, wins, wins.  Always a strong competitor (1st AA ‘08 JO, Jr. B; 4th AA ‘09 JO, Jr. C), she’s on a tear this season.  After finishing 2nd at the COTC (1st V/UB/BB) in December, she went on to win the World Class meet, the Brestyan’s meet and the Metroplex Challange.  The high school junior has a lot of competitions ahead of her before she sets foot on the Auburn campus, but the Auburn coaches must doing a few flips of their own over this 2011-12 commit.  Take a look at her Metroplex Challenge floor routine.

Guy isn’t the only one sizzling this season.  Her Docksiders teammate, Krystal WELSH (PSU 2011-12 commit), has competed in all the same meets with about the same results.  Sometimes they’ve compete in different sessions, each earning the win.  Sometimes they’ve competed head to head, exchanging 1st and 2nd place finishes.  Welsh recently placed first in her session of the Metroplex Challenge.  Earlier this season she won the COTC (1st FX)and the World Class (1st UB/FX).  She placed 2nd at the Brestyan’s meet.

The only scoring drop off, if you can call it that, for these two so far this season came last weekend in the Classic Rock meet. Guy finished 3rd (1st V/UB) and Welsh finished 4th.

➽  Collegegymfans is about college gymnastics, and the L10/elite meet results give a glimpse at the talent that is in the pipeline.  At this point in the season, it’s fun to cull through the accumulating results to find groups of athletes that, when considered together, look to form strong foundations for their future college teams.  Here's a quick glance at a few of the most active recruiting classes.  Watch for  highlights on other recruiting classes as the season progresses.
