A former member of Oregon’s acrobatics and tumbling team has joined the program as a volunteer assistant coach.

Haley Garelick, who graduated from Oregon in 2016, will be a part of the team’s coaching staff, head coach Chelsea Shaw announced on Friday.

“She has such a heart and passion for our athletes and is excited to continue to help grow our sport,” head coach Chelsea Shaw said in a news release. “Haley is the perfect example of the type of loyal, hard-working and enthusiastic person we want representing Oregon!”

Garelick competed at Oregon in her junior and seniors years after transferring from Gannon University. As a Duck, she competed in the Five-element Acro and Pyramid Heat 3. In both of her years at Oregon, she helped the Ducks finish No. 2 nationally behind Baylor.

She was recruited to Gannon by Shaw, who coached there in 2014. At Gannon, she won a national title for the Seven-element Acro Event during the 2014 national championship finals.
