ONW Gymnastics Welcomes New Assistance Coach for the Upcoming Season

By Jenna Daugherty

Anna Sarol started gymnastics on varsity as a freshman at Olathe Northwest, but a tragic accident left her paralyzed and put a halt on her gymnastics career. Although she could not compete physically, Sarol still stayed very involved with her team and the sport and left behind an inspiring legacy after her graduation in 2019. However, she couldn’t stay away from her team for too long and returned this season to become the girls’ new assistant coach.

“I’m so excited for this upcoming season. Words can’t express how good it feels to be back. We’ve got a big group of girls this year who have been working hard and training a long time for this, and to pull a win from East this year from their state win last year is going to be very hard but so exciting and I can’t wait to see how this season unfolds and all the excitement and hype that the girls bring to the sport,” said Sarol.

The ONW gymnastics team has had an impressive run throughout the years, with Brooke Illum winning state in 2017. The other coaches hope Sarol brings out the best in the girls just like she did at her time at ONW so they can get Illum, and the rest of the team, another state title.

“Honestly, it was really stressful when Anna graduating because I couldn’t imagine our team without her, she just brings such happiness and a comrady to our team and even though she went to Northwest she really does unify all the Olathe teams and the whole sport in general, so I was over the moon when she decided she wanted to come back and coach with us,” said assistant coach Alison Krumbiegel.
