“Because of the circumstances surrounding Covid, none of these girls got to do visits as juniors,” Young stated. “But this actually ended up being a unique experience for them because we got to do a senior trip with all the signees and they got to know each other and feel more comfortable as future teammates.”

These three new girls will join a BYU squad that finished the 2021 season as the No. 19 team in the nation and won the Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference title.
