The Oklahoma Sooners Men’s Gymnastics Team has announced the signing of four gymnasts for the 2010 season. This is quite a coup for the Sooners. Three of the four have been members of the USA Junior National Team.
Jake Dalton of Gym Nevada has been a fixture the past few years as one of the top performers at the J.O. Nationals and is a current Junior National Team member. Dalton was runner-up at the ’08 JO Nationals. Alex Naddour of Arizona Flairs, placed fourth in the all-around at the ’08 JOs and is also on the Junior National Team.
Naddour’s brother, Anthony, is transferring from Chandler-Gilbert CC. He led Arizona State’s club team to a national collegiate title last season. Cypress Academy’s Chris Stehl, another solid all-arounder, was a member of the Junior National Team in ’05-’06.
This is what’s called reloading, folks. Despite the losses of Jonathan Horton and Taqiy Abdullah-Simmons, this incoming 2010 freshman class will keep Oklahoma in the national title hunt for years to come.
