Utah State Gymnastics Hosting "Meet The Aggies" Tuesday
Jan. 4, 2008
LOGAN, Utah - Utah State gymnastics will host a "Meet The Aggies" exhibition on Tuesday, Jan. 8 in the HPER gym, from 1:30 - 4 p.m.
The event was originally scheduled for the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum but has changed venues.
"This will be a great chance for our fans to come meet our new gymnasts and get reacquainted with the veterans," USU head coach Ray Corn said. Corn is entering his 31st season at the helm of the Aggie program and is the only head coach in the school's Division I history.
Tuesday will be USU's final tune-up for the season, which kicks of Friday, Jan. 11 at Boise State in a dual.
"We have an extremely tough opener with Boise State," Corn said. "They are by far the most improved team in the conference and one of the most improved teams in the country."
USU returns to Logan for its home-opener on Friday, Jan. 18 against Sacramento State, followed by its second meet in as many weeks against Boise State in the Spectrum on Tuesday, Jan. 22.
The Aggies have six freshmen who will compete this season along with seven returners from last season's squad that finished third at the 2007 WAC Championships and sixth at last year's NCAA Regionals, marking the 26th time in the 30 years of USU Gymnastics that Utah State qualified for postseason competition.
USU will begin the 2008 season ranked 33rd in the country according to the Troester Women's Preseason Coaches Poll.
All USU home meets begin at 6:30 p.m.
