Dear Friends and Alumni,
I write all of you today with extremely sad news. After 71 seasons, 2 NCAA Championships, the highest Division I finish of any UIC sport, and a school record number of All America student-athletes, we were informed that 2018-2019 will be UIC Gymnastics' final season.
The team and coaching staff are, understandibly, very raw. However we intend to work to reverse this decision. As we work over the next year to sustain UIC's history and its future I will communicate to you any ways that you can help.
I hope that today's news will not be overlooked by the holiday weekend. I would ask anyone inclined to help to reach out to your mainstream and alternative media. This is a big story and the greater public deserves to have it reported.
You can also voice your concerns directly to the UIC Athletic Director and UIC Chancellor. Here are their contacts:
The UIC Athletic Director's name is Garrett Klassy. His e-mail is email@example.com. His office number is: 312-996-2695.
You can also contact the UIC Chancellor, Michael Amiridis. His e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org and his office number is 312-413-3350.
I am extremely proud of my life at UIC - athletically, academically, and, most importantly, because of the relationships I have made. Thank you for being a part of it.
Congratulations to Region 5's Curran Phillips and Landen Blixt who were both named to the USA Jr Elite National Team. Curran as a level 10 and Landen as a 9.
