Resly comes from Browns Gymnastics in Las Vegas. She began competing at Level 10 since 2017 and highlighted her season by tying for second on beam and was 12th in the all-around at the Lady Luck Invitational. That March, she finished fifth on vault and was sixth in the all-around and the other three individual events at the Nevada State Championships. In 2018, she was sixth on vault and floor at the state meet and also competed at the Region 1 Championships.
Lahmidi has competed as a Level 10 gymnast for Waller's GymJam Academy since 2016. She claimed a pair of all-around victories and has eight top three finishes during her career. In 2018, she tied for 10th on beam at the Region 1 Championships and was first on bars at the Long Beach Open and the Winner's Cup. She was eight on bars and floor and 10th in the all-around at the 2017 Southern California State Championships.
LeRoy was fifth on floor and sixth on vault, bars and in the all-around at the 2018 Arizona State Championships while competing for Desert Lights in Arizona. She also qualified for the Region 1 Championships. Since moving to Level 10 in 2016, she placed among the top five in the all-around 10 times and had a pair of individual event titles.
MacLeod trains at National Gymnastics Training Center in Aliso Viejo, Calif. In her two years at Level 10, she has five top five finishes in the all-around and four wins on individual events.

She later placed fourth on beam at the SoCal State Championships and went on to tie for seventh at the Region 1 Championships on beam.
"We are really excited to have all four of these student-athletes commit to Sacramento State," Solorio said. "All four have the ability to compete as all-arounders and make an immediate contribution. Each also has their own strengths, Alyssa is beautiful on beam, Bella is powerful and has a dynamic vault, Anna's top event is floor and Kelly has nice lines on each of her events."
