    TO DO

  • Blend the personalities and considerable talents of six newcomers with an already-strong returning nucleus — and find room for everyone to feel needed and comfortable.

  • Gain the consistency the 2006 team couldn't find.

  • Improve as a team in floor exercise.

GOING

  • Gritt Hofmann, made the most of her fifth year in three events
  • Gabriella Onodi, beam and floor specialist
  • Kristen Riffanacht, 2-event performer and co-captain
  • Dominique D'Oliveira, bars specialist
  • Natalie Nicoloff, bars specialist


COMING BACK

  • Nicolle Ford, a captain who will be a senior, strong all-arounder and leader
  • Ashley Postell, top all-arounder, will be a junior
  • Kristina Baskett, NCAA bars co-champion as a freshman
  • Nina Kim, back for a second year in all-around
  • Jessica Duke, 3-eventer from Sandy will be a junior
  • Katie Kivisto, bars leadoff specialist will be a junior
  • Beth Rizzo, walk-on redshirted her freshman year in 2006

Tomorrow: Weber State Wildcats
