Other key performers for the Wildcats include senior co-captain Jenna Karadbil, junior Jessica Marshall, sophomore Cami Banholzer, and freshmen Michaela Grigg and Nancy Milberger.

And participating in such a prestigious tournament could help the Wildcats continue to move up the ranks of the gymnastics circuit.

"The Classic will give us a chance to gain some respect and represent our conference," Gault said. "It will also give us some time in the national spotlight which could benefit us in recruiting. And while all of this other stuff is nice, we can't forget our No. 1 objective to win the meet."
