CEDAR CITY, Utah - SUU Gymnastics signed two talented gymnasts to national letters of intent yesterday, Natalie Hoffmann and Kamryn Bayer.

Hoffman hails from Orlando, Florida where she attends Brandy Johnson's Global Gymnastics Academy. She's a 3-time state champion, 3-time regional qualifier, an eastern national qualifier, and a junior olympic NIT qualifier, where she placed seventh on vault & 13th in the all-around.

"Natalie is a very powerful athlete on floor and vault. She will bring numerous high-level skills to the team. Her beam is very clean, and her bars are constantly improving," Head Coach Scott Bauman said.

Bayer was born and raised in Gilbert, Ariz. where she currently attends the Arizona Dynamics gym. She is a fifth year level 10 gymnast, a 5-time optional state champion, 7-time regional qualifier, 12-time regional medalist and 1-time western national qualifier.

Coach Bauman on Kamryn, "Kamryn is another very powerful athlete. She has some very unique skills on beam that will turn a lot of heads. Look for Kamryn to contribute right away on bars, floor and beam for us."

Bauman added, "We are very excited for these girls to get on campus and contribute to the amazing atmosphere we have in the gym already. We couldn't be more happy Natalie and Kamryn chose to come to SUU."

Looking ahead, the SUU gymnastics team will hold their annual red/white scrimmage on December 5th at 7:00 p.m. Admission is free to this event.
