Andi Dolinsky-Webb is entering her third season as an assistant coach at Utah State, where she primarily works with the beam team.
During the 2015 campaign, Dolinsky-Webb’s beam team recorded the fourth-highest season average in school history with a 48.671. That mark was aided by a season-best 49.275, which ranks as the third-highest score in school history, against in-state rival BYU on Jan. 23.
Highlighting Utah State’s beam team in 2015 was junior JoAnna Cuba, who tied for fifth and led the Aggies with a 9.825 on beam at the NCAA Regional Championships on April 4 in Berkeley, Calif.
Dolinsky-Webb helped guide Utah State to its second consecutive appearance in the NCAA Regional Championships as the Aggies placed fifth and finished ahead of in-state rival BYU for the fourth time during the season.
Under Dolinsky-Webb, Utah State also recorded two of the top four scores in school history in 2015. In a home meet against BYU on March 13, the Aggies posted a 196.350, which ranks as the third-best score in program history. Two days later, Utah State put up a 196.325 at Sacramento State, which ranks fourth on the all-time list. Following the 2015 campaign, Dolinsky-Webb, along with fellow Utah State assistant coach Josh Nilson, earned North Central Region Assistant Coaches of the Year honors for the second straight year.
“In regards to Andi and Josh, I am so glad that the gymnastics community can take a look at the new and improved Utah State gymnastics program and send some credit and recognition their way,” head coach Nadalie Walsh said. “I am very fortunate to have such a united staff that goes out of their way for each student-athlete, as well as for the program. They are great at what they do, have kind hearts, are hard-working and have the utmost integrity. I couldn’t ask for anything more in my assistant coaches.”
During the 2014 season, Dolinsky-Webb helped Utah State to the best beam average since 2005 with a 48.204, which ranks as the seventh-highest in school history. Dolinsky-Webb also helped guide Utah State to its best start since 1999 and its first NCAA Regional appearance since 2007. The Aggies finished in first place in four of their first five meets of the season, including winning the first three, and set a season-high score of a 196.075 at the Mountain Rim Gymnastics Championships, which was the fifth- highest score in school history and their highest since 2003. During the season, USU reached the 196-point mark in three consecutive meets.
Following the strong 2014 campaign, Dolinsky-Webb and Nilson were selected as North Central Region Assistant Coaches of the Year.
“I’m honored to receive this award along with Josh,” Dolinksy-Webb said. “It has been an incredible year working with this talented group of athletes. 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-Webb 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-Webb has also coached at the club level since 2001.
Dolinsky-Webb 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 a degree in English.
Dolinsky-Webb continued her education and began her coaching career at Ball State, where she was a graduate assistant under Walsh. While coaching from 2010-12, she earned her master’s degree in English from Ball State.
The native of Loma Linda, Calif., is married to Kevin Webb. The couple resides in North Logan.
