Auburn women's gymnastics head coach Jeff Graba and staff are elated to sign one of the most promising classes school history.
Sunisa Lee, Sophia Groth, Sara Hubbard, and Caroline Leonard made it official on November 11, 2020, by signing their National Letter of Intent with the Tigers.
Lee headlines the 2021 recruiting class as the most decorated gymnast to ever sign with the program. A 6-time US National Team Member, World Champion, and US Champion, Lee will undoubtedly strengthen an already accomplished squad.
