Coach Fain on Ardoin: Delia fit in with our team from the first minute she walked onto campus. I am thrilled she has chosen to join us next year. Delia has a very nice line and flow when she does gymnastics: It is pleasing to the eye, which the judges like, but it also gives her the base to learn some great skills in the next few years. Delia does what we call a 'non-traditional' vault, which can mean a higher difficulty value for us. I am expecting Delia to make a run for line-up on both bars and vault next year, and will be looking for her to improve her beam and floor skills to add those events in the future. Delia's excitement about the sport of gymnastics and being at Centenary is contagious, and I can't wait for her to bring that to this team next year.
