COLUMBUS, Ohio – Aly Marohn of the Ohio State women’s gymnastics team has been granted an additional year of eligibility, head coach Carey Fagan announced Tuesday. In her first season at Ohio State in 2012, Marohn competed in every meet as the Buckeyes reached the NCAA Championship for the first time since 1990.
"We are thrilled to have Aly returning for the 2013 season,” Fagan said. “She is such a talented and driven young woman, I am so happy she has another year to compete in NCAA gymnastics. She was a major contributor in helping Ohio State jump to the Top 10 this season, so having that experience to share with our seven newcomers will be an important factor in getting back to the NCAA Championship this season.”
Marohn stepped right in for the Buckeyes, tying for second with a career-high 9.875 on vault at Michigan while also tying for the event title with a 9.850 on bars at Illinois. The Langley, British Columbia, native tallied a career-high 9.900 on balance beam against Denver and capped off the season finishing tied for 17th nationally on balance beam and vault in the semifinals at the NCAA Championships.
