Individual Event Finals - Will beats skill?

Welcome to the third and final day of the 2009 USA Gymnastics Collegiate National Championships from the James Moore Field House on the campus of Southern Connecticut State University.

Five TWU gymnasts - Amie Boles, Rashonda Cannie, Kristie Costa, Brittany Parker, and Tonya Pipkorn - are warming up right now to compete in the Individual Event Finals. Boles will take part on floor, Cannie will participate on vault, bars, and floor; Costa will be on vault, bars, and beam; Parker on vault and beam; Pipkorn on beam and floor.

This afternoon's individual finals offer an shot at redemption for the Pioneers after last night's frustrating fourth place finish in the team finals. It's not going to be easy, however, for the TWU gymnasts. I know our girls are physically and emotionally spent after two days of intense team competion. That being said, I know Amie, Rashonda, Kristie, Brittany, and Tonya are determined to make up for last night's miscues. We'll see how it goes!

I'm gonna run down to the competition floor and find out the rotation schedule for this meet...
