Aggies and Hornets to face-off in Western Athletic Conference dual-meet.
Aggies meet Cougars for first half of home-and-home series.
Hire completes gymnastics staff for upcoming season.
Jamie Donkin is starting her first year as an assistant coach with the Utah State gymnastics team.
"I'm really excited. I've known Jeff for awhile and to be able to come in and help with the program is exciting," Donkin said. "It's something new and I'm ready to take on the challenge."
Donkin comes to Utah State from Sacramento State where she spent time both competing and coaching. She spent the 2003 season as a beam specialist for the gymnastics team.
"Jamie will bring great experience and expertise to the program," head coach Jeff Richards said. "I am excited to have her join the coaching staff."
In 2004, she began working as a student assistant, working her way up as a graduate assistant and became a full-time assistant coach in 2009 as the beam coach and floor choreographer for the Hornets.
Last season, she coached the Sacramento State beam team to a 49.100 finish at the Western Athletic Conference Championships and two first-team All-WAC beam finishers. The beam and floor titles at the 2012 Championships went to Sacramento State gymnasts, coached by Donkin.
Aside from coaching at Sacramento State, Donkin coached at Extreme Gymnastics in Loomis, Calif. She also helped direct numerous gymnastics camps throughout the state of California.
A Northern California native, Donkin earned her bachelor's degree from Sacramento State in kinesiology with an emphasis in exercise science in December 2006. She also completed her master's degree in exercise science at CSU-S in the fall of 2011.
