As usagymnastics reported, Samantha Peszek will compete for UCLA in 2010 after she hopefully reached her goal to be on the team for the World Championships 2009 in London.
““I’m so excited to be a Bruin,” said Peszek, who is 17. “I visited several schools and UCLA was just a perfect fit for me. I’ve wanted to compete for UCLA and live in LA for a while, so it’s a dream come true.” Peszek, a junior at Cathedral High School in Indianapolis, was a member of the teams that won gold medals at the 2007 World Championships Team and the 2007 Pan American Games. Peszek has made high honors every semester at Cathedral and was recently invited to join the National Honor Society. Peszek plans to compete in the 2009 Visa Championships in Dallas, Aug. 12-15, and her goal is to make the 2009 World Championships team. She trains with Marvin Sharp at Sharp’s Gymnastics.”
