The Thunderbird Monday, February 20, 1984 Gymnasts gearing for weekend championships. The gymasts had a chance to hone their skills over the weekend by competing in a multi-teameet at Pomona, California. It looks like we are getting everything together just in time for the conference meet, gymnastic Coach Kathryn Berg said. The Thunderbird gymnasts should get some talented performances with the return of an injured Jennifer Walke. The freshman from Midvale, Utah scored a team high 8.55 in the floor exercise at a recent California meet.

The trio members are eligible with their performances to participate in national indoor competition. One of SUSCs outstanding track team members, Will James, has been sidelined due to a shoulder injury but, according to track coach Ben Davidson, should be healthy in a couple of weeks and also ready to qualiiy. Michelle Hebberd also qualified for Lady nationals clearing 54 in the high jump. Hebberd is a proven competitor for the SUSC womens track team. Ironically, SUSC participation in the national indoor meet is still uncertain due to funding and budgetary reasons. With winter at its peak, members of the SUSC track team are already conditioned and qualified for national competition. Competing in two recent indoor track meets campus tracksters did exceptionally well, qualifying in every event for the NAIA National Indoor meet to be held later this winter.

Balancing the teams performance Berg is anticipating the conference meet Saturday. I think we can be hurt because of our lack of depth, Berg pointed out. We have only four people vaulting and only four people on the bars; that means we have to count all four scores. There is no room for a bad performance without hurting our team point total. Southern Utah State College gymnasts will have their work cut out for them this weekend as they host the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Page The female athlete of the week is Jennifer Walke, SUSCs premier gymnast from Midvale, Utah. Jennifer will be a key for in th is Saturdays the RMAC championship meet at War Memorial Fieldhouse. Good work Jennifer.
