While the season didn’t end in a championship for the Tigers, it was still certainly one to be proud of for the NA gymnasts.
“This group of girls have the best team spirit for each other as well as other teams,” said North Allegheny head coach Nicole Bova.
“A judge came up to me and gave me the best compliment ever saying that he has not seen such a great group of girls in a long time,” added coach Bova. “He said our girls are having fun and are there for each other, cheering each other on good, bad, or indifferent. But what is even more amazing is that they cheer every other team on as well. He said this has been missing in high school gymnastics for many years and it is great to see our team doing it.”
Congratulations to coach Bova and the entire North Allegheny gymnastics team for a memorable season.
