Why Penn State
"I chose Penn State for their academic programs and because it is the number one school for job recruiting after graduation. There are so many majors in my field to choose from, and it is ranked in the top 50 for the best public universities for many reasons. I chose Penn State for gymnastics because the facilities are awesome, tutors and help are available, and the gymnastics program is great overall and has been for years. Also, the campus is really pretty and the community around it is safe and all about the school itself."
Coach Thompson on Kobman
"Despite being sidelined with an injury resulting in surgery, Hannah was an integral part of the 2013 women's gymnastics team as she became one of the most vocal supporters on the competition floor. Once she returns to full strength, we expect Hannah to compete for a spot in our uneven bars lineup this season."
