“I have a passion for Christ-centered sports,” says Coach Christian Lighthall of the Gymnics. “Gymnastics is a great way to flex my creative muscle and it’s a great way for a group of students to influence others in a positive way through sports in a Christ-focused environment.”
The Gymnics team has 27 college students and one high school freshman, each from diverse backgrounds and majors, spanning degree areas of English to pre-med to engineering. Started in 1965, Gymnics is the oldest gymnastics program at a Seventh-day Adventist higher education institution.
