Alyssa Baumann, one of the bright stars among the Gators’ signing class announced last November, will use the year to focus on recovering from an injury.
“I am looking forward to competing as a Gator. Unfortunately, my elbow injury will prevent me from competing next year. Therefore, I am going to focus 100 percent on my rehabilitation so I can return to my gymnastics at the level I know I am capable of. I have always been a very motivated and competitive athlete and I plan to use these characteristics throughout my recovery,” Baumann said. “I will be cheering the team on this season, and can’t wait to join them for the next one! Go Gators!”
