McFarland Will Join Boise State Gymnasts

Molly McFarland, who finished 13th at the 2012 Junior Olympic National Championships, has signed a letter of intent to join perennial national contender Boise State.

McFarland, from Costa Mesa, California, competed as a Level 10 gymnast for Team OC Gymnastics.  She finished sixth at the 2012 regional and fourth in the 2012 SoCal State Championships in the all-around.  

In addition to being a top gymnast, McFarland is an Honor Roll member, the winner of the 2007 Norman Stillwell Award, the 2011 Daughters of the American Revolution Award winner and the U.S. Marine Distinguished Athlete Award winner.  

"Molly will bring great character and work ethic, as well as many high level skills to our team," said Boise State co-head coach Neil Resnick. 

McFarland joins Krystine Jacobsen and Maddie Krentz, who signed NLI's in the fall of 2011, as freshmen on the Boise State gymnastics 2012-13 roster.
