San Jose, Calif. - Kaitlin Won, a 2013 Arizona state champion in two events, has signed a National-Letter-of-Intent to compete with the 2014-15 women's gymnastics team, head coach Wayne Wright announced Monday.
"Kaitlin is an amazing athlete and student who will bring a championship attitude, tenacity and competitiveness," Wright said. "She will help bring us to the next level because of her attitude about winning and having competed at the national level."
Won, a native of Mesa, Ariz., captured the beam (9.650) and all-around (38.125) titles at the 2013 Arizona Level 10 State Championships. She placed second in both events at the 2013 Region 1 Level 10 Championships to qualify for the 2013 Level 10 Junior Olympic National Championships. At the National Championships, Won finished fourth on bars (9.525), 14th on floor (9.500) and 21st in all-around (36.925). She will graduate in 2014 from Mesquite High School in Gilbert, Ariz.
Won currently competes for Arizona Dynamics, where she trained alongside current Spartan Rachel Heinl.
Won joins Mackenzie Douglas and Alisa Bogdan, both of whom signed National-Letters-of-Intent in the fall. All three gymnasts are Level 10 competitors who competed in their respective regional championships.
"Our goal is to compete at NCAA Regionals every year," Wright said, "and I am confident that these three gymnasts will help us get there."
