Published Date5\7\2011
The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) recently awarded Kylie Gross, from Mount Marty College, with its annual All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year award-recognizing the student athletes dedication to strength training and conditioning.

This year, the NSCA awarded 247 collegiate and high school athletes from 96 schools with this esteemed award. Gross was selected by the strength coach Andrew Holzwarth, A TC, CSCS, who said, Kylie is one of the best student athletes at Mount Marty College. She is an unbelievable leader to our womens basketball program and it is apparent in the weightroom and during off-season workouts, as she is the one that spearheads everything outside of actual practice. She is the hardest working athlete and understands the importance ofSrength and Conditioning workouts. Over the past year she dropped 10% of her BW and yet improved her LBM, strength, speed, and power. On the court she continues to be at the top with minutes played (28) and her rebound production has improved by two. Kylie has been a role model to the younger players, showing that hard work off the court very much pays off on the court. Kylie will work to be the best throughout her life and make those around her even better!

Alan Kinniburgh, NSCAs Executive Director adds, The advantages of strength training and conditioning cannot be denied in collegiate and high school athletics. These student-athletes attest to this understanding, and are to be applauded for their hard work and dedication. The NSCA All-American Athlete of the Year Award program is in its 32nd year, and is made possible by a grant from Power Systems, Inc., a Knoxville, Tennessee fitness product leader.
