Tanya Ho named Seawolf Gymnastics head coach
by Michelle Saport |
Interim athletic director Tim McDiffett announced Thursday that the University of Alaska Anchorage has hired Tanya Ho as the Seawolves' new head gymnastics coach.
Formerly a UAA opponent as a competitor and coach at Mountain Pacific Sports Federation rivals UC Davis and Sacramento State, Ho becomes just the second head coach in 34 years of Seawolf gymnastics history.
"We think Coach Ho is a great fit for UAA Athletics and as a leader of our current and future women's gymnastics student-athletes," McDiffett said. "She has an impressive background as both a competitor and coach, and she is familiar with the competition level and recruiting landscape. Most importantly, I think she comes to UAA with a vision of where she wants to take the program, not only from a competitive standpoint, but also maintaining our tradition of academic success."
