FAYETTEVILLE – Head gymnastics coach Jordyn Wieber has announced that Maggie O’Hara, a University of Michigan graduate, will be joining the Arkansas Gymbacks for the 2020-2021 season.
“We are thrilled to welcome Maggie to the Arkansas Gymnastics family,” said Wieber. “I am looking forward to seeing her contributions to our team this upcoming season on bars and beam. She has a wealth of experience in NCAA gymnastics already and is ready to be a leader, both in the gym and in the classroom.”
O’Hara’s wealth of experience comes in the form of four decorated years for Michigan gym. She finished her career for the Wolverines with 9.875s as career highs on both the uneven bars and balance beam, both achieved during the 2020 campaign. O’Hara competed in eights meets in 2020, making four appearances on the bars and seven appearances on the beam.
In 2019, O’Hara suffered a season-ending injury, but not before making her uneven bars debut at the Cancun Classic and scoring a 9.825 at the meet.
Since O’Hara arrived in Ann Arbor, Michigan has earned three consecutive Big Ten Championship titles in 2017-2019 and a regular-season conference title in 2020 before the season was canceled due to COVID-19. The Wolverines finished the season ranked No. 5 in the nation by Road to Nationals.
O’Hara graduated from Michigan in the spring of 2020 with a degree in movement science and will pursue her master’s degree in kinesiology at Arkansas. Born in Lexington, South Carolina, Maggie is the daughter of Matthew and Michele O’Hara and has three siblings, Sean, Daniel and Gracie.
