The Stout Athletic Department has student-athletes and coaches from all over the nation. One of these student-athletes is UW–Stout gymnast Sierra Beaver (Fr, Lancaster, Ohio).
Sierra is a student in the Applied Science program here at Stout. For Sierra, the decision to come to Stout had a lot to do with the recruiting process.
“I got recruited and I just loved the atmosphere and gymnasts and coaches. It felt like home right away,” Sierra said.
Like many other student-athletes, much of Sierra’s time is taken up by school, athletic events and practices. However, when Sierra does find herself with some free time, friends are where she likes to point her focus.
“I don’t have much other time, but I love to spend time with my friends and get out and go fishing and boating,” she said.
Sierra also enjoys Ohio State sports. One of Sierra’s favorite athletes is a former Buckeye who is currently starting running back for the Dallas Cowboys. He is none other than Ezekiel Elliot, who Sierra describes as being “talented, yet so humble about everything.”
Aside from being from Ohio and being a Buckeyes fan, Sierra has some other interesting facts about her that include being homecoming queen and that she hates being poked.
