Kytra Hunter Update
The door is not completely shut on Kytra Hunter joining the Florida Gators this spring. Kytra retook her standardized tests several times. It is now up to the NCAA to determine whether her scores are high enough to be allowed to compete. One can only imagine what the required SAT score is, as she is joining an SEC School with strong football and basketball programs. The standards may iterate just how little time elite gymnasts actually spend being educated (unless that have an academically-inclined pushy stage mother.) The NCAA will make a ruling during the first week of January. Given some of the complete bullshit the UF Athletic Department has gotten away with in the past, we can keep our fingers crossed that Kytra and Ashanee will pull one another's hair out in their fight to be the Vault and Floor anchor.
Please Note that Maranda Smith already has a sixth year of eligibility.
