Subject: Re: Coaching in the US

Maybe someone can enlighten me.

I was stunned to read in one of the weekend digests that there is no
official structure for US coaching - have I interpreted the comment
correctly? Does the USGF (?) not have some kind of program for this?
And if I'm right in believing that there is no accreditation system
for US coaches, doesn't that have huge legal etc. ramifications?

Sorry, I was just struck by this, particularly as it's in one of the
world's top gymn-ing countries! If I've completely missed the point,
please let me know! :)

We are not sure how this is possible. We got this info from a newspaper
article in the newspaper that week. If they were wrong, then we are
sorry, but seeing how they talked to Amy Scherr, something about what
they said had to be somewhat true. We are not sure though, we did not
follow gymnastics in 1990.

Sorry in the info was wrong, we got it all from the newspaper article.

The following is a non-copyrighted story that appeared in today's
Lexington (Kentucky) Herald-Leader newspaper.

Gymnasts fall to W.Va. despite 10 by Hansen

     MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -senior All-American Jenny Hansen scored
her first 10 of the season and won the all-around competition
against West Virginia yesterday but the University of Kentucky
gymnastics team lost to the Mountaineers 194.4-192.825.
     Hansen scored her 19th career 10 on the vault to win that
competition. UK sophomore Jennie Maxwell added a career-high 9.8
in the vault to tie for third.
     Hansen also won the balance beam (9.85) and tied for first
in the uneven bars (9.85) with teammate Robin Ewing and with West
Virginia's Umme Salim.
     Kentucky (2-5) lost the meet on the floor. West Virginia
scored a 49.150 to UK's 47.800. Hansen scored a 9.85 to tie for
third, but no other Kentucky gymnast scored better than 9.675.

Subject: Introduction

My name is Heather, I am seventeen years old and I attend the University
of Louisville in Louisville, KY. I have been "listening" in for several months
now and decided that it was time to introduce myself. I have been interested
in gymnastics my whole life, though I have never had the opportunity to take
classes. I am now a Level 1-5 assistant coach at a local club. My hope is to
one day become a Level 6-10 and elite coach. I am hoping to find another
coach that will "take me under their wing". My coach now does very well and
has been very supportive, but I am hoping to progress further than he is able
to take me. He does not coach above Level 5, so I will have to learn the rest
from someone else. Hopefully I will find someone willing. I am majoring in
Physical Education and Sport Administration in school.
To me gymnastics is the best thing in the world and when I found out that there
 were other people really interested in the sport I was so happy! I am mainly
interested in women's gymnastics and I love to read, watch, look at, etc.
anything that I can get my hands on! If _ANYONE_ has any competitions, books,
magazines, autographs, instructional videos, just ANYTHING that they would like
 to sell or would make a copy of ( I would pay for time, postage...) PLEASE
e-mail me! I have some things I would be willing to do too. Also, if anyone
has any questions or comments, write me- Ilove to get mail!

Subject: Amy Scherr/1 arm giant

Regarding Amy Scherr, maybe they meant Senior National team and
Junior National team combined.  I'm not sure how many years she was
on the Jr.  13th ranking could have come from the Goodwill Games or

I was wondering what value the one-arm giant was given, on women's
unevens.  Since they didn't want to encourage it because of it's
difficulty, it seems that their are more skills more difficult than
that, like the counter-Kim, or Gaylord for that matter.

University of Michigan (4) vs University of Utah (3)


Going into this meet, UM was concerned about their team's health.  With
half of their team injured, they were trying to recup.  Against Ohio
State, Heather Kabnick and Dianna Ranelli competed hurt.  Lisa Simes and
Kristin Duff were just cleared to train.  Tonight, Heather, Dianna, Lisa,
and Nikki all competed.  The arena was standing room only.

In UM's win, the wolverines posted the second highest bars score they've
ever had:  49.10  and a career best 49.35 on beam.

Notes:  As I mentioned before, many wolverines competed hurt.
Nikki Peters had her wrists and right ankle heavily taped.  After bars,
Heather went into the locker room, dressed, and had ice taped to her
right ankle.
And on a sad note, in the middle of UM's last rotation on fx, Dianna
Ranelli fell to the floor in pain for 5 minutes, after her first tumbling
pass.  Clutching her left knee, she had to be helped off the floor.  The
whole arena went silent, you could see how upset the team was.

Subject: iup gymnastics (W)

The Indiana University of Pennsylvania women's gymnastics team continued their
undefeated streak in February topping Wilson College by a score of 175.65 to
57.85.  Wilson is in their first year of varsity collegiate competition and
were unable to field a complete team.

IUP used the opportunity to work on upgrading skills and this resulted in a
less consistent performance than their previous efforts, but the meet was good
preparation for the upcoming Ithaca Invitational at Ithaca College, February 24
at 2:00 p.m.

Georgiana Cunkelman, IUP's freshman stand out, recorded her best all around
effort of the year with a 37.4 despite a rough bar set that received a 9.0.

Wisconsin Women's Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Championship

Headline: Oshkosh flips over the competition

For Oshkosh, A funny thing happened on the way to the forum.

Or, rather, the WWIAC championship in River Falls.

The day before Oshkosh left for the competition, sophomore Heather
Anderson, who'd been a solid all-arounder for the Titans for most
of the season, slipped off the uneven bars during practice, severely
injuring her right ankle. The diagnosis was bone chips in her ankle, and
Anderson was out for the season.

Enter freshman Suzanne Scharl. Scharl had been competing on beam and
floor early in the season, but with Anderson's rise, had been bumped off
both events and had only competed exhibition recently.

Now, Scharl was called upon not only to start on beam and floor, but
to start the rotation on vault, as well.

How did Scharl respond? By post season-best on all three events, providing
a solid base for the rest of the team to add upon.

In the end, the Titans followed Scharl's lead and nipped defending
champions University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in a tight competition,
scoring 140.925 to La Crosse's 140.100.

While Scharl's impressive performance as the lead-off competitor was
certainly noteworthy, the rest of the Titans made headlines for them-
selves. The Titans grabbed one event title, shared another, and had
four of the top five all-arounders.

The top individual finish was by freshman Tiffany Barden, who won the
balance beam with a score of 9.300, in spite of a fall on her
roundoff-layout on mount. Barden hit the rest of her set, which included
a flipflop to two layouts, a side aerial and a roundoff, flipflop, full
twist off to stay .25 ahead of her nearest competitor. The score helped
barden to a 34.300 all-around total, good enough for fourth place.

Nikki Smith, another freshman, tied UW-La Crosse's Jill Niemczyk for
the vault title with a 9.00. Smith also finished fourth on the uneven
bars, in spite of a fall on her double-back dismount, and fourth on the
beam, inspite of a fall during her routine. Smith's all-around total of
35.500 earned her third.

Oshkosh's top all-around was Kari Graef, who has sat in that position
for the last several weeks. Graef parlayed three top-five event finishes
(third on vault, second on bars, fourth on floor) into a 35.625 all-
around total, good for second place behind Kari Livingston of UW-La
Crosse, who scored 35.900 to take the title.

The Titans now have two weeks off to prepare for the Division III
national championships. Head coach Paul Scardina said that the team
will be looking to add some difficulty before the meet, and eliminate
some of the mistakes they had Saturday. The Titans counted two falls
on bars and three falls on beam.

*note: Sorry for the Oshkosh focus, but this was double-duty, as I had
to write this for the school newspaper as well.

Now, on a completely unprofessional note, La Crosse and Oshkosh are
looking terrific. Oshkosh coach paul scardina was impressed wtih what
La Crosse did, and he said that both schools should be looking for
a great national meet.

     A quick comment about the judging at this meet.  For once I thought
the vault judges were consistent.  Several Georgia gymnasts had near
perfect vaults that may have been given 10's in past meets.  Kim
Arnold could not have done her vault more perfectly.  She didn't even
do the quick salute at the landing that she sometimes does to hide a
step.  The judges for the uneven bars were clearly not on the same page.
As you can see, several of Georgia's gymnasts came close to 10's.  In
my opinion only Leslie Angeles deserved the score she received (it
could have been a 10), and Lichey and Strong probably deserved 9.95's.
One of Stanford's gymnasts, Amy Neil, received a 9.85 from one judge and
a 9.55 from the other.  I don't claim to know much about judging, but
I don't think there should have been a 0.3 discrepancy.  The funny
thing is that the judge that gave her the 9.55 was the judge that had
given Georgia's gymnasts the 10's, so it's not likely that she was just

Subject: Any gym clubs in Liverpool?

Hey everyone,
        My name is Matt.  I'm a 13 year old level 3 gymnast and I
train at Gymini Gymnastics in Herndon, Virginia.  I'm going to England for a
month in June as a foreign exchange student.  I have to miss a month of
gymnastics, and I'm not going to be in great shape when I get back.
Nationals and the season will be over by then, but I would still like to
keep in shape.  I was wondering if there were any gyms that I could train at
for a few days while I'm in England?  I will be in the Liverpool/West
Kirby/Wirral area.  Thanks a lot for any info. someone might have!
