Former West Virginia Head coach passed away today.
I got hooked on NCAA gymnastics by watching her teams while I was in grad school at WVU; this was back when they had Umme Salim, Kristen Quackenbush, Nikki West, and my favorite Jessica Nonnemacher (sp?) (yes, I’m old). The team used to train in the gym that shared a back wall with our offices so we would run into the coaches occasionally in the hall. She was always friendly; I had a few of her gymnasts in my freshman comp courses, and they seemed to like the team and the coaches. RIP and thanks for the memories.
