Ruby 2017 Seniors 

This spring brought Ruby four graduates that we will be wishing the best; but with heavy hearts as we loose them from our staff and team. Each one brought something special to our Ruby family and will be missed. We pray for a great future in the new paths they are beginning.

Miss Micah was our Pre-team and rec coach. She graduated from UNI with a masters which landed her a job at the Mayo Clinic. We will miss her bubbly personality, smile and focus to teach every skill correctly.

Miss Holly graduated from Columbus and will be spending her first year in Brazil. She was a great recreational coach that was filled with excitement, great personality, smiles and love for her gymnasts.

Miss Maaike graduated from Cedar Falls High and will be spending her first year in Holland for school. She is a great asset to the Ruby family, teaching recreational classes and Xcel, always demanding more from her gymnasts. We are blessed to have her for half of the summer.

Miss Delaney also graduated from Cedar Falls High and will going to Iowa for a degree in Human Physiology. Delaney was a great team leader, completing her career at Level 9. A 4.0 student and also a judge for U.S. Women's J.O program.The team will miss her support, love and cheering for all Ruby gymnasts. We will enjoy seeing her at meets, sitting at her judging table.
