Season Outlook: "Amanda was a solid 9.8 floor worker her junior campaign. She is learning a new vault and her floor just keeps getting better. Her leadership in the gym and outstanding floor routine will serve us well this year. Recently, she took the M-CAT test and is finishing her senior year out and continuing on to medical school."
