Prairie Twisters Coach/Morris Area High School JV Coach
Hello! My name is Savannah Aanerud and I am a gymnastics enthusiast! I have been involved with gymnastics ever since I can remember competing in both club and high school gymnastics teams. I also have helped coach athletes ages 3 through high school. A hard work ethic, determination, a positive attitude, and a team-focused mentality are life skills that I am excited to help grow in the gym! My favorite event was vault and a skill that I really enjoyed competing was my tsuk. My favorite memory from Morris High School gymnastics was being part of the conference team that broke the beam school record with five stuck routines (I still get chills:) I just graduated from SDSU in Brookings, SD with an agriculture communications degree and a few fun facts about me are that I love Jesus, mountains and cows! I’m excited to be your coach!
