RANDY SOLORIO NAMED TO NCAA WOMEN'S GYMNASTICS COMMITTEE

INDIANAPOLIS — Sacramento State head gymnastics coach Randy Solorio was appointed to the NCAA Women's Gymnastics Committee. Solorio will serve through Aug. 31, 2021.

The purpose of the NCAA Women's Gymnastics Committee is to develop policies and procedures governing the administration and conduct of the National Collegiate Women's Gymnastics Championships. In his role, Solorio will meet with fellow committee members twice a year — at the annual NCAA Championships in April as well as a meeting in June. Committee members will also serve as administrators for NCAA regional meets during the regular season.

"I'm excited to serve with fellow coaches and administrators from throughout the country," Solorio said. "It is an honor to be named to this committee and I have to progress our sport at the collegiate level."

Solorio is currently in his third season as the Hornets' head coach. He guided the team to the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation championship in 2016 and has advanced at least four gymnasts to the postseason each season.

Prior to becoming the head coach, Solorio served as an assistant under Kim Hughes for 30 years. In that stretch, he was the West Region Assistant Coach of the Year in 1990 and 2006, the USA Gymnastics Assistant Coach of the Year in 1997 and earned the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Assistant Coach of the Year in 2015.

The Sacramento native competed collegiately at UC Davis from 1980-82 where he was a three-time All-American.
