Riley McCusker Selected As USA's Wildcard For 2017 AT&T American Cup

Riley McCusker of MG Elite has earned the USA's wildcard spot for the 2017 AT&T American Cup on Saturday, March 4, at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. McCusker locked in her spot this past weekend following verifications at February National Team Training Camp at the Karolyi Ranch in Huntsville, Texas. McCusker joins Ragan Smith, who is also representing Team USA at the American Cup.

McCusker is a first-year senior who broke onto the scene with an outstanding 2016 season. At the 2016 P&G Championships in St. Louis, she took second in the all-around, bars, beam, and floor in the junior division. The New Jersey native has phenomenal technique across every event and clearly has huge potential as a senior elite.

In a recent interview with USA Gymnastics, McCusker noted that competing at the American Cup, especially since it is in her home state, has been a huge goal for her this year.

MG Elite coach Maggie Haney is, of course, very proud of her rising star:
