Lyndsie Boone is in her first year on the Utah State coaching staff, serving as a graduate assistant coach after being a highly successful four-year letterwinner for the Aggies. "Lyndsie was a great gymnast for us for four years and has matured into an incredible young woman. She is working on her MBA and wanted to learn more about the business side of gymnastics. Her business skills, combined with her gymnastics knowledge have been a tremendous help in the day-to-day operations of the program," Richards said. A native of Winthrop Harbor, Ill., Boone's duties will be working with all events during practice and meets, as well as some office work. "Lyndsie's communication skills make her an incredible coach and the student-athletes respond to her coaching style very well. As a head coach you try to surround yourself with capable, hard working, self motivated people and Lyndsie emulates these qualities and has set a standard that will be hard to be equaled by GA's that will follow," Richards said. Prior to joining the coaching ranks, Boone was a four-year NCAA regional qualifier, competing in the all-around in 2009, 2010 and 2011 after qualifying on beam in 2008. She was also a three-time academic all-WAC honoree as well as a three-time USU Joe E. and Elma Whitesides Scholar Athlete Award recipient. Boone earned her bachelor's degree in business entrepreneurship from USU in 2011 and is currently pursuing her master's of business administration. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________ As a Gymnast -
