                 Kaylie commits to the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater

 

Kaylie is excited to commit to attending the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater to continue her academic and gymnastics careers, starting in the Fall of 2018!

Under Coach Jennifer Regan,    UW-Whitewater has consistently been one of the top Division III teams in the Nation, winning National Collegiate Gymnastics Association Division III national titles in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2017.  The Warhawks have also claimed five of the last eight Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference/NCGA West Regional championships (2010, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017).  Prior to the three-peat, Warhawk gymnasts earnd an NCGA runner-up finish in 2011 and back to back third place finishes in 2009 and 2010.  They also won back-to-back WIAC titles in 2010 and 2011.  With a WIAC runner-up finish this season, the Warhawks will defend their National Championship at the 2018 NCGA Championships in late March.

Kaylie credits the entire Top Flight family for helping her to grow, advance and achieve this goal.  Under the leadership of Dave, Andy and Amanda, she was able to train, learn and grow in a way that made college coaches take notice.  And, thanks to the encouragement of her teammates and overall support of Top Flight both on and off the gym floor, she is excited to achieve her dream of competing as a college gymnast.

Personal thoughts: I love the sport of gymnastics and I am passionate about continuing to compete in the sport.  I love the competition aspect.  I love to train and continually set and achieve goals, understanding and loving the work and effort that it takes to make my goals a reality.  Having started artistic gymnastics at age eleven, I quickly realized that I would need to work hard to progress toward becoming a Level 10 gymnast.  Thanks to the help of my parents and coaches, I am proud to say that is a goal I was able to accomplish.  With that said, I have much more I plan to accomplish and I feel that I am far from reaching my full potential.
