All-Around Super

Kelsey Ericksen has been one of the best Gym Dogs all season long, who am I kidding, throughout her whole career here, she has been one of the best. She is currently ranked 4th nationally in the all-around and just won the all-around during the SEC's last March in Birmingham. This Saturday at 6:00 pm, the #1 ranked Gym Dogs host the NCAA regional and the Junior All-American is more than ready and earlier she sat down and spoke with me...

Dave McMahon -- The NCAA's are back, you've been winning and that is great, but now it's for real... right?

Kelsey Ericksen -- It's been real all along. Since last year when we won it all, throuh this year. You can't ever have a let down... the SEC's were real you've got to keep consistant and keep everything under control.

DM -- The Gym Dogs are currently 21-0... How hard is it to go through the whole season undefeated?

KE -- You can't let distractions get to you. We all have to have focus on what our goals are.

DM -- Your two best all-around scores happened during the last two meets... you are really on top of your game... aren't you?

KE -- Not sure... I know I have been practicing well and it's paying off at meets. I would like to continue what I have been doing throughout the rest of the meets this year and on to next year as well.

DM -- You compete in the all-around... but what is your best event?

KE -- I think it's the floor and bars. The bars because I get scared before I compete in it, but if I do well, it really boosts my confidence.

DM -- What about your favorite?

KE -- Same ones... The floor is a lot of fun because the crowd really gets behind you.

DM -- Thank you for your time and good luck this weekend and beyond.
