Year 95


Hello all,
This is coach Jesse Kitzen-Abelson and I want to thank you for helping us survive one of the most difficult periods in our 95 years as a program.  In 1945 during WWII, we had a one-man team carry us through the season.  In 1994-95 we survived the chopping block.  In 2013-14, we were cut from varsity status.  And now we are dealing with COVID-19.  None of these major obstacles has prevented us from discontinuing our program.  Our dedicated staff, team, alumni, and supporters (you!) are the reasons we are still here.  We would not be able to carry on at a high-level without you.  
The current members on our team are training the best they can, wherever they can.  We do not know what our season will look like but the men are in good spirits and are proud to be Owls.  There is also a lot of excitement within the gymnastics community about our recent revival and success.  Knowing that we have your support gives us a sense of security and we look forward to sharing our future highlights as a program with you.  There is a lot of growth left for TUMG, but we must take it one step at a time.  Thank you again for financially supporting us.
