Maryland We Go Along

In surprising and incredibly exciting news, it's just been revealed that WA pocket rocket Nikki Chung is off to compete at the University of Maryland! Better add the Terps to your viewing roster!

"We're very excited to welcome Nikola to the Gym Terp family,” head coach Brett Nelligan said. “The team and staff have been eagerly awaiting her arrival all summer.
