NCAA Gymnastics Championships Pre-Meet Quotes:
UCLA head coach Valorie Kondos: "(Boise) is my most favorite place to go. I love the city, I love everything about it and everything the city has to offer. My coaching staff and I went jogging this morning, and we noticed that everyone said hello and welcomed us to their city. It has been an absolute pleasure, and we haven't even been here 24 hours yet."
"This has been my most rewarding season for me. Our three upperclassmen have done a phenomenal job, as far as leadership goes. We also have a whole slew of freshmen coming in with such an enthusiasm for doing collegiate gymnastics."
"I'm looking forward to this weekend. We haven't hit 24 for 24 yet, and we hope to peak this weekend."
UCLA senior Heidi Moneymaker: "This has definitely been the best year of my career, as far as talent, team unity goes. We have a good team who enjoys competition. No matter what happens, as long as I can walk away after Saturday with a smile, I'll be happy."
