Not only is it postseason in J.O. gymnastics with the level 10 national championships right around the corner but the regular signing period begun about two weeks ago as well. Which gymnasts are heading to your favorite school?

The season is over, which means most of our favorite seniors will be graduating and moving on to the non-gymnastics part of their lives. However, we just can’t let go. While some have potential fifth years begging to be used, others don’t. But that’s not stopping us from wishing they could come back for just one more year! In no particular order, these 10 seniors are some we NEED to come back for fifth years (even if they’re not technically eligible to do so).

We couldn’t let the season end without taking a look at the great leotards showcased at USAG Collegiate Nationals a couple weeks ago! Which team has our favorite from Seattle? The criteria is the same as always. But to refresh your memory: up to three points for design; two points for fabric, sparkle, etc.; and two points for school spirit; three points for overall appearance. After assigning points to each category, we’ll tally up the scores and average them with the previous week’s. So by the end of the season, we’ll know for sure which team has the best leotards (according to us) and which teams not so much. We want to know what you thought too (or if we forgot one of your favorites from this weekend)! Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter. And make sure to vote in our poll at the bottom of the page to make your opinion heard in the fan vote, new this season.
