TANYA HO NAMED ASSISTANT GYMNASTICS COACH
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento State gymnastics has named Tanya Ho as an assistant coach, it was announced by head coach Kim Hughes.
A native of nearby Elk Grove, Ho competed collegiately at UC Davis where she became one of the top gymnasts in Aggie history. During her career, she captured a total of 13 All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation honors, nine Gymnast of the Week awards, plus an Athlete of the Year nod in 2010. On the larger scene, she became the first Aggie to qualify for an NCAA regional three times, and the second to reach the region meet as an all-arounder in back-to-back years.
"We are very excited to have Tanya join our team," Hughes said. "Being from the area, we've know her for a long time and look forward to seeing what she can bring to the program."
On March 28, 2008 as a sophomore, Ho became the third UC Davis gymnast to crack the 39-point barrier in the all-around. She hit a 39.025 to capture the MPSF individual championship.
Ho graduated from UC Davis with a degree in exercise biology.
