Gymnastics at Fan Day for Visually Impaired Children
BATON ROUGE – LSU gymnastics head coach D-D Breaux and several gymnasts visited the Delta Gamma sorority house on campus for the Louisiana School for the Visually Impaired Fan Day on Wednesday.
Casey Duvall, Sydney Ewing, Ashleigh Gnat, Maliah Mathis, Sarie Morrison, Britney Ranzy, Shonacee Oliva and Randii Wyrick, along with Breaux, took part in the fan day experience for many children from LSVI School.
Breaux spoke to the group about how determination and hard work can pay off, and she encouraged the children to follow their dreams.
The gymnasts interacted and played with the children throughout the event.
“It was such a great opportunity to be there with the kids, listen to their experiences and be able to share with them what it’s like to play sports at LSU,” Morrison said. “They are a great group of kids, and they have so much fun and live life to the fullest.
“I think it was a humbling opportunity for the team to be engaged in something like this, and to be able to have fun with these kids is something we love to be a part of.”
No. 1 LSU returns to action Friday when the Tigers play host to Missouri at 7 p.m. CT inside the Maravich Center.
