UC Davis women's gymnastics signed prospective student-athletes Kayla Koch and Katie Reinhardt to national letters of intent (NLI) during the November signing period. Both gymnasts are expected to enroll at UC Davis in the fall quarter of 2005.

"Like last year's recruiting class, this is another group who I feel can be competitive as all-arounders," said Aggie head coach Ray Goldbar.

Koch, a senior at Villa Park High School, is in her fourth year of Level 10 training and her first with the New Hope Academy of Gymnastics after three seasons with South Coast Gymnastics Club. She is a three-year Level 10 regional qualifier and was selected as her club's Athlete of the Year in 2003. Academically, Koch is a five-time member of the National Honor Society.

Reinhardt, a senior at Riverside Poly High School, has qualified for both the Level 10 state and regional meets for four straight years as a member of Kips Gymnastics Club. She competed at the Junior Olympic Nationals in each of 2003 and 2004, helping her team take first place in 2004. Reinhardt performed a new uneven bars skill created especially for her at the 2003 J.O. meet, now called the "Reinhardt".

The Aggies begin their 2005 season on January 14 with a quadrangular meet at UC Berkeley along with Stanford and Brown.
