TWU Captures 11th USA Gymnastics National Championship
TWU Gymnastics is looking to commemorate its 11th USA Gymnastics Collegiate National Championship by raising $11,000 to help support the program and quest for a 3-Peat in 2019. The National Titles earned in 2017 and 2018 were truly a team effort and a result of being able to recruit and retain the best student-athletes. The support we receive from the University is terrific but the money raised from family and friends allows additional finances to help improve our program and enhance the opportunities for our tremendous student-athletes.
Head Coach Lisa Bowerman would like to upgrade our practice facility by branding the lobby and showcasing our senior plaques and team record board. These enhancements will create a strong statement for all those coming into the venue. The improved space will be a source of pride for Pioneers past and present.
We are Pioneer Proud of several major accomplishments from this year's championships:
196.525 - USA Gymnastics Collegiate National Championship Team Record

With a Little Help From Our Friends
What began in December with an exhibition event in front of their home crowd at the Holiday Spectacular ended with a dominant three-day performance that left no doubt who was the best team in the gym. Kitty Magee Arena was packed with the largest crowd since 2012 and helped carry the team to their 11th USA Gymnastics Collegiate National Championship.
"We are unbelievably thankful for the support of TWU, the Denton community, and our fans," stated Bowerman. "We could not have done it without all of them behind us, so we simply want to thank you."
TWU Gymnastics is reaching out to family, friends and supporters again to help us build on back-to-back championships as we move toward 2019 and a chance at a 3-Peat. This campaign provides no benefits for your gifts to allow your gift to be 100% tax deductible and to ensure 100% of your gift goes directly to supporting the needs of the program.
