Coach’s Note: Amber just recently returned to Byers after 6 seasons with another gym.  At the time she returned, she had been injured and did not have most of her old skills.  She has worked hard and is close to the level she was before the injury.  Bars is somewhat of a struggle right now, but Vault, beam, and floor are headed in the right direction.  Amber is a great teammate and wants to improve.  I expect that by the time season starts, she’ll be doing well.
