Bronco Gymnastics Inks Three Recruits

BOISE, Idaho Boise State University gymnastics Head Coach Sam Sandmire announced the signing of Hannah Redmon, Amy Glass and Mallory Dziawura to National Letters of Intent, Monday.

“Each of these recruits has strengths on different events and their styles are quite unique,” Sandmire said. “All three are exciting, dynamic competitors who will help lift Boise State to the next level. They will each be vying for all-around spots, and are top students that will help keep Boise State ranked in the national top 12 academically.”

Redmon, a native of Reno, Nev., boasts two top 10 finishes at the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic Championships in the all-around, as well as a second place effort on bars. She finished sixth in the all-around in 2005, and eighth in 2004. She is also the current Nevada State AA senior champion.

“Hannah’s club coach was current Bronco coach Neil Resnick,” Sandmire said. “Thus we expect her to make the transition to college gymnastics smoothly. We are looking for Hannah to be a strong all-around competitor who will capture the audience and lead the Broncos to a national berth.”

Glass, a Sacramento, Calif., native, was one of Region One’s top-ranked finishers this past year. She was a 2006 Junior Olympic National qualifier, and she finished in the top 10 in the beam (fourth), vault (eighth), floor (10th), and all-around (eighth) at the Region One championships. At the Norcal States last year, Glass finished first on vault en route to a first place finish in the all-around and a spot on the Norcal All-State team.

“Amy Glass is an up and coming gymnast who appeared on the national scene this year,” Sandmire said. “She is a dynamic and powerful vaulter and tumbler, as well as a steady force on the beam.”

Dziawura, from Phoenix, Ariz., finished first on bars and beam en route to a third place finish in the all-around at regionals. She then went on to the national championships, where she posted a fifth place effort on bars. In 2005, Dziawura finished sixth at regionals in the all-around.

“Mallory will be bringing strength and skill to the difficult events of beam and bars,” Sandmire said. “She has unique combinations that set her apart from her competitors, and will add strength and depth to the Bronco squad.”
