"Our alumnae are an important part of our Huskie family," Morreale said. "A year ago we had a record number of our former gymnasts return for the State Championship meet, and we hope to see even more of our gymnastics alums and their families at the MAC Championships on March 24. It's important for our current team members to see and get to know those who paved the way for them."
