Five gymnasts earned Academic All-Big Ten laurels and the team was awarded the Penn State Team Community Service Award. In 11 years as the head of the Auburn University women’s gymnastics program, Thompson was named the SEC Coach of the Year and NCAA Regional Head Coach of the Year in 2003 and 2008.

THOMPSON

Rachelle Thompson begins her third season as the associate head coach of the Penn State women’s gymnastics program. Prior to Penn State, Thompson spent 11 years at Auburn University in Alabama. Her husband, Jeff, serves as the head coach. During the 2012 campaign, Thompson helped Sharaya Musser earn Penn State’s seventh ever Big Ten Gymnast of the Year honor. Additionally, Musser earned All-American status on floor and balance beam. During her first season as the associate head coach at Penn State, Thompson helped coach the Nittany Lions to a second place finish in the 2011 Big Ten Championship with two Nittany Lions capturing individual event titles. Penn State also earned a berth in the NCAA Regional Championships as the No. 2 seed. Sharaya Musser advanced to the NCAA National Championships representing the Nittany Lions. Thompson joined the Auburn staff in 1999 as a choreographer and volunteer coach before being promoted to assistant coach in 2002 and associate head coach in 2006. Her responsibilities included, but were not limited to, coaching beam and floor, choreographing beam and floor routines, managing all meet contracts, scheduling community service projects, recruiting, as well as handling travel arrangements and the budget. She was a two-time Auburn University Assistant Coach of the Year and was selected the 2008 NACGC/W Central Region Assistant Coach of the Year. As a coaching team at Auburn, the Thompsons produced four NCAA All-Americans, four All-SEC team members, three SEC Gymnasts of the Year winners and one SEC Freshman of the Year. They coached nine NCAA Championship individual qualifiers and four NCAA Regional Event Champions. Their gymnasts also excelled in the classroom and in the community. They had three SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year winners, three CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District members, 41 NACGC/W Academic All-Americans and 53 SEC Academic Honor Roll selections. Prior to joining the Tiger staff, Rachelle was a choreographer and volunteer coach at LSU for six years and at Illinois from 1992-93. Thompson attended LSU and was a three-time NCAA All-American gymnast. She was a finalist for the American Award honoring the Top Five Senior Gymnasts, as well as a finalist for the HondaBroderick Cup. Thompson earned a Bachelor of Science and Education from Auburn. Rachelle and Jeff have two sons, Parker (17) and Griffin (15).

MONAHAN

Assistant coach Randy Monahan enters his fifth season with the Penn State women’s gymnastics program. With the Nittany Lions, Monahan aids in recruiting and training student-athletes along with various other aspects of the program. “Randy is one of the finest assistant coaches in NCAA Gymnastics,” said head coach Jeff Thompson. “His competitive experience combined with his technical knowledge enables him to put his coaching into terms that every one of our gymnasts can understand and use. He not only can tell them ‘why’ it will work, he can tell them how it will ‘feel’ to do it that way. His years of experience as a competitor have also helped him develop our strength and conditioning program. We use nothing but our own body weight to develop the strength, flexibility and endurance that we require in a way that makes sense to everyone on the team. He is also a great recruiter and has been instrumental in helping us land several top gymnasts over the past two seasons.” Monahan was a member of the Ohio State men’s team from 2001 to 2005 and was a seven-time All-American with the Buckeyes, who captured Big Ten titles in 2002 and 2005. He was the Big Ten Gymnast of the Year and also captured the Big Ten All-Around title in 2003 and 2004 and was a Nissen-Emery Finalist in 2005, finishing second in the all-around at the NCAA Championships that same year. Monahan comes to Penn State from the club coaching ranks, most recently with Artistic Sports Academy Plus out of Harrisburg, Pa. At Artistics Sports, Monahan assisted the head coach in instruction and analysis of youth athletes as well as various coaching and instructional responsibilities. He was also employed by EJM Food Corporation as a Quality Control Specialist. Prior to his time in the Harrisburg area, Monahan was a coach at Buckeye Gymnastics where he worked with a wide variety of athletes from levels 4-10. He also served as a volunteer assistant coach with the Ohio State men’s team where he assisted in instructional and managerial capacities as well as having training and competitive responsibilities. Monahan graduated from Ohio State in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science degree in human ecology. Monahan is married to volunteer assistant coach Jillian Monahan. They reside in State College.

2012 Meet Summaries at West Virginia with Maryland • January 8 MORGANTOWN, W. Va. - The 13th-ranked Penn State women’s gymnastics team opened the 2012 slate with a first place finish in a tri-meet hosted by West Virginia. The Nittany Lions earned a team score of 195.775, while West Virginia finished second with a team score of 195.100 and Maryland took third with a 194.225. Penn State’s score of 195.775 was the highest score the Nittany Lions have earned as a squad in a season-opening meet in program history. The last time Penn State scored a 195 or better in the first meet of the season was in 1999 when the Nittany Lions defeated Rutgers with a 195.075. Five Nittany Lions competed in the all-around for Penn State, including juniors Sharaya Musser and Madison Merriam, sophomore Kassidy Stauder, senior Whitney Bencsko and freshman Krystal Welsh. Musser earned the crown with a 39.500, while two other Nittany Lions finished in the top five. Stauder took third with a 38.950 and Bencsko placed fifth with a 38.625.

Penn State opened the meet on the uneven bars where Merriam and Musser joined Maryland’s Karen Tang as the event winners each scoring a 9.850. Senior Alexandra Stine (Philipsburg, Pa.), who competes solely on bars, placed sixth for the Lions with a 9.750, while Stauder scored a 9.725 to take 10th. Welsh posted a 9.700 and Bencsko posted a 9.225 as Penn State’s other two competitors on the event. The Nittany Lions took control of the meet early with a team score of 48.875, while WVU had a 48.825 on vault and Maryland was in third with a 48.300 on beam. The Lions advanced to beam in rotation two where Musser took the title with a 9.900. Welsh and senior Daryl Konsevick (Rutherford, N.J.) also finished in the top five after each scored a 9.775 to tie for fifth place. Bencsko posted an eighth place finish with a 9.725 and Stauder was ninth with a 9.700. Merriam recorded a 9.250 on the event. As a team, the Lions posted a 48.875 to improve their team total to 97.750 to remain in first place in the meet with two more rotations to go. West Virginia earned a 48.600 on bars in the second rotation to increase its team score to 97.425, while the Terps scored a 48.500 on floor for a 96.800. Rotation three had the Nittany Lions competing on floor where Musser was once again Penn State’s top performer. She finished tied for second with a 9.850. Bencsko and Konsevick both finished in fifth place with a 9.825. Merriam scored a 9.775 and Stauder earned a 9.750 for 10th and 11th place, respectively, and Welsh secured a 9.050 for 16th. Penn State combined for a 49.025 on floor and had firm control of the meet with a team score of 146.775. The Mountaineers registered a 48.600 on beam for a team score of 146.025 and Maryland had a team score of 48.625 on vault for a 145.425.

The Nittany Lions team score of 49.000 on the event was plenty to secure the Lions their first meet victory of the season. WVU finished the meet on floor with a 49.075 and Maryland had a 48.800 on bars.

The women’s gymnastics program at Penn State prides itself on excellence, both in the gym and in the classroom. One of the primary academic resources for gymnasts is the Morgan Academic Center. Located in MBNA Building in the middle of campus, the center provides a full range of services for intercollegiate athletes, including academic advising, career counseling, sports psychology, and sports research. The purpose of the center is to help the student-athlete make normal progress toward graduation while managing the demands associated with attending a major NCAA Division I institution. Specific objectives include helping student-athletes develop individualized academic plans, providing the means by which student-athletes can assume full responsibility for their education, and assisting freshman student-athletes in making a successful transition to college life. That philosophy is evident in the Big Ten Academic All-Conference team. The Nittany Lions, in their 20 years in the Big Ten, have placed 130 student-athletes on the Academic All-Conference team.
