Bellevue gymnast signs with Huskies

Jessica Nesis, an Issaquah High School student who trains at Bellevue's Gymnastics East, has signed to continue her career and education with the University of Washington Huskies and coach Joanne Bowers.

“Jessica is a local gymnast, who attended our camp, and has continued to impress us with her work ethic and progress,” Bowers said in a press release. “She could help us on bars right away and is showing big progress on vault and beam.  We value her work ethic and positive attitude and are really looking forward to working with her every day.  The fact that she has always dreamed of being a Husky and bleeds purple is just a bonus!”

Nesis was a level 10 state UB champion in 2012 and was named Gymnast of the Year in 2010.
