Stotzheim Says: "Kathy Smith will be experiencing a very busy year in 2000-2001. She is student teaching the entire first semester, taking a class, contributing to her honorary sorority, leading as a co-captain and still fitting in her training! Fortunately, Kathy has a strong foundation to rely upon. Her consistency on beam is unmatched, while her vault and floor will provide the experience the team will greatly need. Kathy's spring semester should ease up, providing her the time to focus on finishing her career in style."
