MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – This season, the West Virginia University gymnastics team has lifted the veil and given Mountaineer fans a closer look in The Extra Tenth. Each week, a different gymnast has been featured.

The final edition spotlights senior Kaylyn Millick. In just three years at WVU, the Washington, Pa., native has left an indelible mark on the Mountaineer program. An all-arounder, she has saved her best gymnastics for her last season, as she has set or matched a career high on every event. Since hitting for a career-best 39.4 on Feb. 1, Millick has tallied 39.0+ in all but one meet, for seven scores of 39.0 or better. She is nationally ranked No. 27 (39.3) in the all-around.
