Coach Joanne Bowers on Alexandra:

Preseason 2014: "Alex is another gymnast we thought would help us mostly on vault and floor, due to her leg power, but she is doing great on all 4 events right now and showing that she can be a force in the all-around.  She has nice lines on bars and beam and has continued to show great progress there, so we are hopeful she can really help us this year in many ways."

At Signing: "Alex is a very powerful tumbler and vaulter and will help raise the level of difficulty on these events. She is very dynamic and has great quality dance and presentation. She is also a fierce competitor and has a way of turning it on for competitions," Bowers added. "We feel like her personality is one of her best qualities and she is so team oriented that she will be a great addition for us."
