DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire gymnastics program will hold its annual "Meet the Team" on Saturday, Dec. 7 at Lundholm Gymnasium. The 1 p.m. exhibition performance will be followed by a youth gymnastics clinic at 2:30 p.m.
Fans are invited for a 2014 season preview at the "Meet the Team" performance that will feature a blue/white competition from the gymnasts on all four events: vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor exercise. The squad, led by co-captains Hannah Barile (Sinking Spring, Pa.) and Erin Machado (Swansea, Mass.), will be split into two separate teams that will compete head-to-head in an exhibition. This will be followed by a girls' gymnastics clinic, where girls ages five and older will have the chance to work with the UNH gymnasts and coaching staff. The day will include an autograph session with the Wildcat student-athletes.
Tickets for the "Meet the Team" exhibition are $7 for adults, $5 for under-18 and seniors, and free for UNH students. The one-hour clinic after the exhibition costs $10 and includes free admittance to "Meet the Team."
