Paynesville/EV-W gymnastics for 2013-14 campaign

Former assistant Jennifer Mrozek, of the Paynesville/Eden Valley-Watkins gymnastics staff, is starting her second year as the team’s head coach. “I have been coaching gymnastics at various levels for the previous 12 years at North Crest Activities Center in St. Cloud. I wanted to continue teaching and growing the sport of gymnastics here in Paynesville and the surrounding areas. I also run the Junior Bulldogs gymnastics program through Paynesville Area Community Education.” P-EV-W loses three seniors and a junior from last year’s squad, but this year’s team is young, with lots of talent coming up the ranks. “We will have Heather Arnold to lead the team this year, as she has been very powerful on vault and floor. Her consistency is cornerstone for the team,” Coach Mrozek said. Arnold’s varsity teammates Emily Weidner and Alison Gottwald are young and also carry a lot of promising potential for the upcoming season. “As a whole we have a young team with a lot of potential, and with hard work and determination, we will pull off a great season.” said Mrozek.
