Yale Gymnastics: The Class of ’17

Though Yale will host the Ivy Classic they wrapped up their regular season and honored Seniors Anella Anderson, Kacie Traina, and Tatiana Winkelman. (Stats presented are the best that I could find.) Here is just a sampling for their contributions.

Traina has been a Beam specialist in her appearances for Yale. She set a personal best of 9.725 in 2015 as seen here:

Competing on Bars and Beam, she has put up some high scores in both rotations.  Her personal bests are 9.825 on Bars and 9.850 on Beam.
