Entering her second season as an assistant coach at Utah State, Andi Dolinsky works primarily with the Aggie beam team.
During the 2014 season, Dolinsky helped Utah State to the best beam average since 2005. The 48.204 ranks as the sixth-highest in school history, including a season-high 48.875 at home against Southern Utah.
Dolinsky also helped guide the Aggies to the best start since 1999 and their first NCAA Regional appearance since 2007, after setting a season-high score of a 196.075 at the Mountain Rim Gymnastics Championships, which was the fifth-highest score in school history. Throughout the course of the season, USU reached the 196-point mark in three consecutive meets.
After a strong 2014 season, the North Central Region named Dolinsky one of the Assistant Coaches of the Year along with USU assistant coach Josh Nilson.
"I'm honored to receive this award along with Josh. It has been an incredible year working with this talented group of athletes," Dolinsky said. "The success we've had in just one year reflects the dedication and drive of our team and our staff."
Prior to Utah State, Dolinsky spent a year in Dublin, Ireland, where she received a second master's degree in Medieval Literature and Culture from University College Dublin.
In between her schooling and individual gymnastics participation, Dolinsky has also coached at the club level since 2001.
Dolinsky has a long history in gymnastics as both a competitor and a coach. She attended and competed at UC Davis from 2004-09 and was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Gymnast of the Year in both 2007 and 2009. She graduated from UC Davis in 2009 with an English degree.
She continued her education and began her coaching career at Ball State where she was a graduate assistant under current Utah State head coach Nadalie Walsh. While coaching from 2010-12, she earned her master's degree in English from Ball State.
