Coaching Staff on Bloom: Kristen set the all-around record for a freshman in 2000. She had some inconsistency on bars last year, but has resolved that. I anticipate she will peak this year, returning to the form she showed as an outstanding freshman.

Finished the year with season averages of 9.653 on the beam and 9.570 on the floor... Her 9.653 average on the beam was the second best on the team in 2001... Scored a 9.700 or higher on the beam in seven of the 10 meets in which she competed... Had a career night against Southern Utah (3/12/01), posting a career-best 9.900 on the beam and a season-high 9.750 on floor.

Won three all-around titles and six individual event titles, including two on the beam and floor and one on both the vault and bars... Posted season-highs of 9.700 on vault, 9.875 on bars, 9.850 on beam, and 9.925 on floor... Has already left her mark in the Utah State record books, owning the third best season average on bars in school history, with a team high 9.779 average.
