GYMNASTICS MAKES DEBUT AT FLIPFEST ON FRIDAY NIGHT

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Sacramento State gymnastics team will hold its first public event on Friday, Dec. 8, with its annual FlipFest. The intrasquad meet will begin at 7 p.m. in the Hornets Nest and is free to the public.

Hornet gymnasts will be divided into two teams (Green & Gold) with both teams competing on all four events. Each routine will also be judged.

Sacramento State returns 12 members from last season's team and has added seven freshmen to the roster. The returners are led by a six-member senior class comprised of Lauren Rice, Caitlin and Courtney Soliwoda, Jennifer Brenner, Courteney Ng and Annie Juarez. Randy Solorio returns for his third season as the team's head coach. Solorio has a pair of former Hornet gymnasts on his staff in Melissa Genovese and newcomer Nicole Meiller.

On Friday, Rice and freshman Jordyn Brent will compete as all-arounders for the Green team. The Gold will have Juarez, Caitlin Soliwoda and Savannah Dunbar competing in all four events. Four Hornets (Brenner, Courtney Soliwoda, Lauren Schmeiss and Paige Yasiu-Durlacher) are being held out of competition as the recover from injury.

The Hornets will make their 2018 regular season debut at the NorCal meet which will be hosted by Stanford this season. The meet will also include Cal, San Jose State and UC Davis. The team's first home meet of the season will come on Jan. 12 against Washington.
