The Ramler Resurfaces
Minnesota Super Senior Lexy Ramler pulled out all the stops on Senior Night, hitting a 9.9 bar routine in the anchor position and then remounting the bars just a few moments later to perform in the exhibition spot. Ramler wowed the crowd with her eponymous skill (a full twisting Shaposhnikova), making it the first time she competed the skill in competition as a Gopher. What a way to go out!
On March 9, 2022, Fisk University announced the hiring of Corrinne Tarver (Wright) as the inaugural head coach of the Fisk gymnastics program. Tarver was a former U.S. national team member, a nine-time All-American at the University of Georgia and the first Black NCAA All-Around Champion.
In a statement posted by Fisk University, Tarver said it has been her dream to coach a college athletic team.
“When beginning gymnastics there were very few role models that looked like me,” Tarver said. “I remember watching Diane Durham realizing that a Black girl could be the best in the country. I knew at that moment that I wanted to be a member of the U.S. national team and be a role model for future Black and brown gymnasts.”
Tarver will begin her duties as head coach on May 1st.
