LOGAN, Utah – Utah State gymnastics will officially compete in the Mountain West Conference as the league announced the addition of women’s gymnastics as the conference’s 19th sponsored sport starting with the 2023-2024 academic year.
“The addition of women’s gymnastics to the Mountain West will allow us to cultivate more opportunities for female student-athletes to compete at the highest level, while promoting the academic missions of our member institutions,” MW Commissioner Gloria Nevarez said. “The profile of women’s college gymnastics is exploding. What an exciting time for the Mountain West to add one of the most popular high school and collegiate sports.”
Joining Utah State as competing institutions in MW women’s gymnastics will be Air Force, Boise State and San José State.
“I couldn’t be more excited about this announcement,” head coach Kristin White said. “I want to thank Amy Crosbie (USU Executive Associate AD – Internal Affairs/ Senior Woman Administrator) for working diligently with MW Commissioner Gloria Nevarez in making this process a reality for our program and the other three affiliated universities.
“Competing for a championship at the Mountain West is a prestigious opportunity for our student-athletes. This opportunity will help enhance our student-athlete experience! We are thrilled to be joining our other Utah State sports as an official member of the Conference. We look forward to an exciting 2024 inaugural season!”
