Just arrived at the venue for the Metroplex Challenge. Have walked approx 1 mile, still no gym stuff, clearly chose wrong entrance!
Can you imagine if Florida had Rachel Spicer NOW? my gosh they would be unstoppable!

Metroplex Challenge NCAA Session
Hey everyone! I just got home from the Metroplex Challenge NCAA meet tonight, it was Alabama, LSU, Missouri, and Nebraska, and it was a really fun atmosphere! The fans for each team were grouped together into their own sections, and it was cool hearing different sections of the arena erupt into cheers at random times! I just filmed all the floor routines, and they’re in the process of...
What does everyone think of Florida’s early domination of the 2011 NCAA season? I know they have a good team (Macko, Alaina Johnson, and Ashanee Dickerson among others!) but I would never have predicted the tremendous start to the season they’ve had! They posted a 197.5 last night in their meet vs NC State and Penn State, which is HUGE! Typically we don’t see that high of a score...
Here’s another one of the routines from the OU-TWU meet that I was really impressed by. It’s freshman Madison Mooring on beam! Madison just joined the team in December after graduating high school early (she did a good interview with us HERE explaining a little more about that decision) and I think she’s transitioned beautifully! Her performances were confident, calm, and steady,...
Another routine from the OU-TWU meet on Sunday - Sara Stone’s exhibition on beam. There is an awful lot of flicky wrists going on in this routine but the rest of the content makes it a great routine! Steady bhs-bhs-layout, and a very huge/awesome back handspring swingdown that was almost more of a back tuck, that’s how huge her set was! Loved it, added some cool flair to the routine....
Here’s one of the OU routines I liked from the meet Sunday - Kayla Nowak on floor. Beautifully controlled double pike, one and a half to front full, also very pretty, and finished up with a front one and a half. I think Kayla has very pretty form in her tumbling, and while some people may not like the choreography (I’m looking at you Spanny!), I think it’s great for Kayla, it...
Thanks!! BOOMER!! RT @OUgymnastics: Videos from tonight’s meet! Thanks @gymnastike http://bit.ly/gDTjyN
Oklahoma at Texas Women's Coverage
Hi everyone! Myself and Rodney (also from Gymnastike) went up to Denton, TX today to film the OU at Texas Women’s meet. I thought I’d post a link to the coverage here, as well as a couple routines I liked, which I’ll embed here as the week goes on. I was really impressed by freshman Madison Mooring, she just graduated high school in December and is making a huge splash right...
Sooners Rally over Oregon State, Denver, Centenary
The Oklahoma Sooners had three falls (two counting) on the uneven bars tonight, and found themselves sitting in third place after two rotations, but mounted a spectacular comeback to win the quad meet over #6 Oregon State, #23 Denver, and Centenary in Norman tonight. Led by Natasha Kelley, Megan Ferguson, Kayla Nowak, and freshman Taylor Spears, the usually solid Sooners showed some...
I have just been sooooo busy lately! Apologies on the not-so-regular updates. I am looking for new things I want to post in my free time, which is limited, boo. I think I like this layout a lot though! I will be changing the header (where it just says The All Around right now) to something cooler in the future. And everyone should leave a comment because YOU CAN DO THAT NOW! :) Yippee!
Gymnastike posted their 2010 Recap and preview for the first weekend of NCAA meets in 2011! Enjoy, and be sure to check out all the amazing coverage on that website as the 2011 NCAA season unfolds!
There won’t be many updates this week, since I had wrist surgery yesterday and typing takes me forever :( I suggest you go check out Gymnastike.org, Gymnasticscoaching.com, or thecouchgymnast.com in the meantime! And get ready for NCAA which starts this weekend :) EDIT: The info and Poll for voting is at the bottom of the blog now, scroll down, I promise it’s there! AND check it...
Design #4 Is Here!
Hey y’all…design option #4 is here, but it does need some tweaking! I am making a customized banner for the top which will go where it says ‘The All Around’ right now. Also, I am trying to figure out how to enable comments, I’ve seen it on other blogs with this design so I know it’s possible, I just don’t know how! To remind you for the vote, here’s...
