Coach's comments: "We are excited to start our second season back home at Moorhead High School. We have 16 gymnasts this year. We have many new faces on the team. Our numbers are improving, which gives us more depth. The Spud gymnasts are working hard on skills and routines to start the season. We host several meets this year, so come out and support these talented gymnasts."

Coach's comments: "I am excited for this coming season. Anna Suppes, who graduated last season, was a huge contribution to the team and it will be interesting to see how Davies will compete without her. Alex Baer, a senior at Davies, is new to the team this year and I believe she will be a good addition to the team."

The entire coaching staff is very excited about our returning skiers and the early potential we are seeing in our brand new skiers. Our entire roster is fairly new to skiing and, like the past three years, we plan to get better each day in practice and ski our best at the section and state championships."
