Personal Jaclyn K. McCartin is from West Covina, Calif. ... her parents are Creighton and Judy McCartin ... nickname is Jack ... chose UW because she "loved the campus, coaches, and team. They were so supportive of me through this whole year and they really helped me realize that this was going to be my new home."
Coach Joanne Bowers on Jaclyn: "She struggled a lot as a freshman but has really started to figure it out and works so hard. I will be surprised if she isn't helping us on three events this year: bars, beam and floor. If we can get her in lineups on all three events she will really help our team. I'm excited about her progress."
