Evan Thue –
This issue’s Student-Athlete Spotlight is Chelsea Gray, a senior on the University of Wisconsin-Stout gymnastics team. Gray is an applied science major and is from Fitchburg, Wisconsin.
Why did you choose Stout?
I chose Stout because I was recruited for gymnastics by the head coach. She invited me to come do an overnight visit where I got to stay in the dorms with the current girls on the team and they were so welcoming and nice that I could see myself spending the next four years here.
Outside of school and athletics, what are some other things you like to do?
Outside of school and athletics, I like to spend time doing things with my friends like shopping, Netflix or spending time outdoors.
What are a few interesting facts about yourself?
An interesting fact about myself is that [during] my first three years on the team, I was the only girl from Wisconsin.
Who is your favorite pro-athlete and Why?
My favorite pro-athlete is Simone Biles because even though she is the best gymnast in the world, she is still very humble and continues to train hard to get better.
What is your plan after college?
After I graduate from UW-Stout with an applied science degree, I hope to attend graduate school to become a doctor of physical therapy. Once I get my DPT, I would like to work within the sports medicine field with high level athletes.
